From Survivor to Healer 爱上你治愈我 is a 48-episode Chinese drama about two medical students who ended up working in the same hospital after breaking up years ago. The lead stars are Shawn Dou (Ten Years Late) and Vivi Miao Miao (Youth) with a supporting cast that includes Peng Guan Ying (Princess of Lanling King), Wang Si Si (Love is Brave), Jin Shi Jie (The Great Expectations) and Pan Hong (Delicious Destiny).
Yan Shu Ren (Shawn Dou) and Shu Shu (Vivi Miao) met and started dating when they were studying to be doctors. However, their relationship falls apart after Shu Ren suddenly out of school and leaves Shu Shu in the cold. Shu Shu decides to pursue further studies in Japan.
Five years later, Yan Shu Ren has become a psychiatrist while Shu Shu is a psychologist. The two are reunited when they were called back to work at Si Kang Hospital by their former teacher. Shu Ren tries to patch things up with Shu Shu to no avail yet she starts to warm up to him as her mother was hospitalized. She also comes to realize the real reason why he left all those years ago.
This isn’t the first time that Shawn Dou and ViVi Miao Miao will be working together. They were both in Princess Agents last year except she had such a minor role that her character was quite forgettable. It still comes as an interesting coincidence for fans of the show to realize that Xiao Qi and Yan Xun would end up as a couple.
I am a little bit turned off by the sub-plot where they are exes that had to work together but I like medical dramas so we’ll see. It also feels like we’re in for an emotional rollercoaster as our main protagonist seems to be a tortured soul, which from previous projects, Shawn Dou has clearly proven that he has the acting chops to deliver. He has such a bright and sunny image in real life though, I’d wish to see him in a rom-com!

Shawn Dou in a modern drama? this is a must watch!
I wish his next modern drama project would be an angst-free rom-com. All of his modern dramas up to now are melos and he even has a sad fate in ancient ones too lol. He stars in another with his Princess Agents co-star Li Qin (Princess Chun'er), and it's another emotional roller coaster between them *sigh*
