Yang Mi, Bai Yu cast as leads in Thank You Doctor

Medical drama Thank You Doctor 谢谢你医生 stars Yang Mi as Xiao Yan, an aloof and extremely talented surgeon who joins the ICU Department. She works together with Bai Shu (Bai Yu) to provide specialised treatment to patients, and the two eventually fall in love. I assume it’ll be a slow-burn romance though, because the synopsis states the heroine was still trying to cope with the loss of her fiancé.

Directed by Zhang Rui (Operation Moscow, Yu Zui) and written by Zhou Yong (Ten Miles of Spring Scenery Can’t Compare to You), the drama will begin filming in a couple of days.
