The characters of The Legend of Condor Heroes come back alive in modern times in medical procedural jianghu romance drama Small Doctor 小大夫. The series will star Dong Zijian (Like a Flowing River), Zhang Jiani (The Story of Yanxi Palace) , Liu Mintao (The Rise of the Phoenixes) , and Li-Chun Lee (The Family). Synopsis below:
Guo Jing (Dong Zijian) is an unassuming but studious doctor from the borders (I’m going to make a wild guess and say it’s Inner Mongolia) who falls for the prettiest and brightest young doctor, Huang Rong (Zhang Jiani). As the two support each other in their journies of self-fulfillment, they’re faced with the opposition of Guo Jing’s boss and Huang Rong’s older sister (Liu Mintao). Li-Chun Lee joins the cast (probably as Hong Qigong?).
I know that Kung-fu Hustle paid royalties to Jin Yong for using his characters, but I’m suspicious about the legitimacy of this one and the other modern AU drama, The Legend of Brown Sugar Chivalries.
The series is directed by Lu Lunchang (The Master of the House) and scriptwriter is Wang Xiaoqiang (The Mask ). Filming began last week.
Like A Flowing River stars Wang Kai as a smart lad from the countryside who is able to change the course of his life after taking the university entrance exams, Yang Shuo as his impulsive brother-in-law while and Dong Zijian as a budding entrepreneur. Part 1 begins airing tonight on Dragon TV / Beijing TV and will finish with 47 episodes.
