SYNOPSIS ( written by me as the ones on MDL etc are wrong) Am not sure why I started this given that I have so many dramas but I somehow clicked on Youko's video when I saw Wallace Chung head-lining this. Next thing I know I had already finished two episodes. This is a romantic melodrama , one that promises to be full of angst and it isn't going to be your typical romance given that the female lead Tan Jing ( played by Li Xiao Ran ) is married with a young child. Wallace plays her first love, Nie Yu Sheng ( they met in high school) and is a heart surgeon. Life has not been kind to Tan Jing. Her son suffers from a heart condition and needs surgery urgently but she can ill afford to give him one given that they are not well to do. Her husband is a construction worker , and their relationship is pretty strained given that he is often drunk and is bad with finances. While we get glimpses of Tan Jing being skilled and intelligent in her younger days and even in the present, we discover that she was not able to finish university and has to work in a low paying job in a bakery. Their first encounter (in the present) shown was when he passed by the bakery she was working in , and decided to go in to get some bread. While taking her son for a second opinion for his surgery, she meets him again. We get to see glimpses of their past - how they met , their happier times together. At present Tan Jing is not the only one who is suffering. Yu Sheng, despite being a well-respected surgeon and comes from a good family seems rather depressed and unhappy ( he has remained singled). And from these chanced encounters with Tan Jing, it is clear that he has never forgotten her despite trying to put up a cold front each time he meets her. ------------------------- Episodes : 30 Airing dates : Jan 18, 2022 - Feb 1, 2022 Aired Schedule : Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday Original Network: CCTV, Youku Duration: 45 min.
