Thank You, Doctor 谢谢你医生 which promises the anticipated collaboration between Yang Mi and Bai Yu was among the first batch of dramas to halt filming with the spread of the coronavirus epidemic in China back in January. As the entertainment industry slowly gets back on its feet, the list of productions that have resumed work in major studios like Hengdian and Xiangshan Film and Television Town have also grown since March.
Unfortunately, Thank You, Doctor doesn’t seem to be on the list. The word on the internet is that it’s having trouble obtaining government approval due to its filming location, set at a hospital in Ningbo, thus making it unconducive for prevention and control measures. Due to the number of scenes that were already shot, it doesn’t seem practical to build new sets from scratch. If the rumors are to be believed, Thank You, Doctor is postponed indefinitely which means that the cast will have to move on to other projects for the time being.
With no official announcement yet, I sure hope this isn’t true but I did wonder why Thank You, Doctor hasn’t resumed work. Nonetheless, it’s best to put safety first and this is one drama I’d be willing to wait for. Given its medical theme, it does seem to hold more meaning especially in these trying times.
