Arghhhh, what am I doing here!? I am supposed to be studying! I just can’t seem to stay away from dramas! Maybe watching The Hippocratic Crush II (AKA On Call 36 Hours II) will inspire and motivate me to become a doctor in the near future? Ahahaha! I was really looking forward to this drama because I loved the first instalment The Hippocratic Crush (AKA On Call 36 Hours) which was released last year. I really loved the characters there, especially Yu Jai (Tavia Yeung) and Yat Kin Tau (Kenneth Ma) so this sequel made me keen to see their further development. I have already seen these first five eps (I saw it prior to my exams so that’s okay…) and it did not disappoint. I am really enjoying THCII as a sequel to THC. I find that it is really stacking it to its previous instalment. It brings on the same mood that was present in THC, and furthermore, the characters are the same as they previously were but now they are more developed with a solid personality to them. There are a number of new casts to this sequel but I don’t really mind because the cast of THC are still of the main focus here. I am just really enjoying this sequel thus far; it actually feels like a continuation of THC which for a sequel is a rare gem to spot in TVB dramas. More YuTau shipping with the drama!
Check out the previews for the first week which I have translated. You should watch THC if you haven’t done so, and you should watch THCII if you have already seen the first instalment. (Now, no touching dramas for me!)

Lau Bing Chan/Benjamin: Why can’t you empathise a patient who is suffering?
Fan Ji Yu/Yu Jai: This is seedlings. Hopefully after you plant it you will be filled with liveliness. Everyone of you in my hearts are angels.
Lok Man Sang/Lokman: The more you are able to research about an illness, then this is the illness’ original species. The patient will be closer to death.

Lok Man Sang/Lokman: Yep. In order to wait for her boyfriend she purposely moved here.
Hung Mei Suet: It doesn’t matter if you are stupid. No one will be there to help you.
