Shawn Dou, Peng Guan Ying, and Miao Miao in From Survivor to Healer

I haven’t seen this bright smile in so long!

What’s going on here? Yan Xun, why are you romancing Chu Qiao’s sister! XD Shawn Dou Xiao‘s latest project is a modern drama called From Survivor to Healer (爱上你治愈我), reuniting him with actress Miao Miao, who played Xiao Qi in Princess Agents. He’s also reuniting with Tribes and Empire: Storms of Prophecy’s costar Peng Guan Ying who plays the third leg. The story doesn’t seem anything extraordinary; he falls in love with the heroine in medical school but their families encounter unfortunate events, forcing our hero to avoid the love of his life and she decides to study abroad in Germany. Five years later, their teacher refers both of them to work at a hospital, allowing our hero to slowly win back his lady love, but she only softens as her mother undergoes medical treatments and he remains at her side. Peng Guan Ying develops feelings for the heroine but she rejects him cleanly. Then one day our hero discovers that his mom died eight years ago because of a car accident and is thrown into self-blame, doubting his career achievements, only recovering with the help of his love. The two later decide to pursue more education in Germany, forgoing marriage.

Yea…I don’t feel an ounce of excitement reading the synopsis. Lol.
