Medical dramas have always been a popular staple on TV thanks largely to the “dramatic” nature of the profession. Where else can you find people dealing with life and death situations on a daily basis than a hospital? Besides, if you’ve kinda had enough of the typical fluffy rom-coms and fantasy dramas currently prevailing on the small screens, medical dramas might just be the thing to get you out of your rut.
The newest medical drama unveiled today is Thank You Doctor 谢谢你医生, a series based on the novel ICU 48 Hours ICU48小时 by author Sheng Li 笙离. Together with the unveiling of the production is the official announcement of the two lead actors slotted to headline the project. As rumours had it, actress Yang Mi will star as Dr. Xiao Yan opposite actor Bai Yu of Guardian fame who stars as Dr. Bai Zhu. Come to think of it, I do think this is the first time Yang Mi plays a medical doctor ?
Anyway, what do you guys think of this pairing? Fan scrutiny of Yang Mi’s co-stars has been pretty intense lately after the superstar’s fans expressed their unhappiness with Jaywalk’s strategy of pairing the actress with the company’s up and comers to capitalise on her popularity to push their new artists. Bai Yu has garnered a big following after both his and co-star Zhu Yilong’s phenomenal performance (and chemistry) in the fantasy drama Guardian. Both actors are now enjoying increased popularity and love from viewers, with Bai Yu ranked 36th on the Forbes China Celebrity 100 this year.

Lucky woman….Bai Yu is a winner.
Wow, I love Bai Yu. He is one of the more charismatic actors who can act so well. Guardian and Memory Lost are my favorite series of him. Plus Yang Mi, this can't be missed!
Okay, so Yang Mi is my forever idol and I personally think whoever gets to be paired along with her are super duper lucky. Even if she wasn't my idol, I would go with Yang Mi. I mean, everyone knows she's Queen MiMi and she deserves all the CRAZY hype that's going around in China. Yes, I agree with you, Anonymous, she has a lot of haters. But that doesn't matter, because she has more admirers (like me) than haters. Hear me: THE MORE FAMOUS AN ACTOR/ACTRESS IS, THE MORE HATERS THEY GET. So it's not her problem.
lmao shouldn't it be lucky him to work with Yang Mi? She is definitely a bigger name and is the bigger lead of the drama?
yess thankyou I am sick of people always comparing if girl is 'good enough' for the guy or 'lucky her' why can't it be the other way around ?
lmao what?? �� Bai Yu should be the lucky one here my friend. I honestly don't understand why do people always consider actresses lucky to be acting with certain actors lol what kinda logic is that. Plus, Yang Mi is one of the biggest stars in China and she has bigger influence and fanbase compared to bai yu.
I love how so many readers are so easily annoyed….lol.
Both are good for each other. Period.
Fresh pairing look forward to this one…
It's annoying that some people will be very bias when it comes to their fave actress. YM has the most haters, period.
Lmao YM has the MOST haters? Are you sure?
