It is no secret that I loved The Hippocratic Crush (or maybe it is). That was one of my favourite dramas of 2012. I just loved it. It was is one of the best written drama coming from TVB in a very long time. In fact, since THC, there has been no dramas this year thus far that are anywhere near as well written and executed as THC. I don’t usually have high expectations for TVB sequels because TVB tends to ruin them one way or another but this is not the case for The Hippocratic Crush II. I am really anticipating it and holding my expectations high for various reasons. The obvious fact is that THCII retains its former cast and no one significant is killed off or removed from the drama. Furthermore, they aren’t thrown in with some new relationship line but rather they are allowed to enhance their current relationship. There are a number of new casts in THCII but I just hope that they do not take away the essence that made THC so wonderful to watch.
THC really made me fall in love with Kenneth Ma and Tavia Yeung as a couple. They have a ton of chemistry between them. I loved their respective portrayal as Cheung Yat Kin/Yat Kin Tau and Fan Chi Yu/Yu Jai because they enticed me, allowing me to really love them. They are very sweet with each other and you can just see how comfortable Kenneth and Tavia are with each other.
I can’t wait till THC debuts. I hope and pray that this sequel does not ruin the brilliance that was brought on by THC. If, in the worst case scenario that it does, at least I will get to see more of Yat Kin Tau and Yu Jai. (:
Check out these trailers in anticipation of THC! THC premieres on the 4th of November on TVB. TVB might have had a crappy run of dramas this year but I am certain that THC is one that is worth checking out.
