The Hippocratic Crush II Episodes 6-10 Video Previews

Don’t ask, just don’t ask how I managed to squeeze dramaing into my current life despite it being exam filled! Though, rest assured, my studies do take precedence over dramaing! My exams have actually been progressing quite smoothly and I have made sure to study well for them! Just one more week of exams to go before I can resume my normal dramaing again! (: Yay! So first I shall have to survive through this week and at the end of it will be a very bright rainbow waiting for me!

I am really enjoying this drama but there is too much focus on the new characters and too less focus on who we really want to see. I really want to see more development between Cheung Yat Kin/Yat Kin Tau (Kenneth Ma) and Fan Ji Yu/Yu Jai (Tavia Yeung). The drama does have them in the centre but I just feel that every time they appear, I only get to see them for a few seconds at most! There is not enough focus on them! Let’s not even talk about Hung Mei Suet (Mandy Wong) and Lau Bing Chan/Benjamin (Benjamin Yuen) because in these 10 eps, there has been hardly, if any, focus on them. I want to see the cuteness and Mei Suet’s soft side when she is with them, because so far there has only been talk and no show of that. I don’t mind the new additions, and in fact I actually quite like them but I would really appreciate it if the focus wasn’t given so heavily on them. I really want the main cast to be the focus because they are the ones who drive the drama.  Continue reading

The Hippocratic Crush II Episodes 1-5 Video Previews

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!

The Hippocratic Crush II Official Opening Sequence Full Cut

The Hippocratic Crush II (AKA On Call 36 Hours II) premiered last night but released its official opening sequence a while back. I am really keen on opening sequences because they give you an insight as to what will happen in the drama without actually spoiling it. It just makes you excited for what is to come. I really enjoyed the opening sequence for THCII. Not only did Joey Yung who sang the opening theme song for THC come back to sing for THCII, but the song also follows a similar melody. I think that this was really nice because this helps to emphasis that this is carrying on the spirit of THC. For once THCII actually feels like a continuation of the first season and not a spin off from its original parent.

A Collection of The Hippocratic Crush II Trailers and Teasers in the Lead-up to its Air Date

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.  Continue reading
