Hope you didn’t miss Gong Jun too much cause he’s back on the small screen with new modern drama The Flaming Heart (你好，火焰蓝) with Zhang Hui Wen, Zhou Yan Chen, Wang Zi Wei, and Pang Han Chen. Its a romance between a disciplined fire fighter and kind, “sunshiny” doctor. Seems like this year’s theme in dramaland goes parallel with the global pandemic, highlighting the various critical jobs in time of disasters/hardships.
Qing Luo (清落) follows our heroine, played by Wang Zi Wei, a talented doctor who gave birth to a boy seven years ago. She begins traveling to search for baby’s daddy and meets a man (Liu Xue Yi) who shares the same face as him. She hates him at first glance due to the resemblance and but begins to open up to him after they go through a series of events together.
Maybe I’m getting older or maybe my taste has never changed to begin with. Boy-crazy heroines drive me off the wall. Lol. My experience with this drama is interesting. While I recapped, my level of frustration level was kept at bay, but after the recap, in hindsight, I had to tskk-tskk at all the good moments that the writer let pass for the sake of love. Had it been in a stronger writer’s hand, these moments would have demonstrated good character growth and depth.
