Medical Examiner Dr. Qin: The Survivor 法医秦明之幸存者 stars Jing Chao as the titular examiner, Liu Haikuan (Rule the World) as detective Lin Tao, Deng Yang as a leading trace detective and Yu Xintian(The Great Wall) as assistant examiner Chen Shiyu.
On another note, the official sequel to Zhang Ruoyun’s Dr. Qin will air 2 episodes every Thursday on Sohu beginning tonight.
Based on the fourth book Scavenger 清道夫, popular Sohu-produced web drama Dr. Qin Medical Examiner 法医秦明2: 清道夫 is returning for a second season, and stars Liu Dongqin(I’m Not A Monster) as Qin Ming, Liu Chang(Women in Beijing) as cop-buddy Lin Tao and Yu Shasha(The Imperial Doctress) as Qin Ming’s quirky new assistant Chen Shiyu.
I’m a bit disappointed the original cast couldn’t return, but this teaser looks pretty good.
Personally I feel 2016 has been a rather lackluster year for dramas, and there wasn’t a single show that had me completely invested. My standards have risen exponentially after a slew of good dramas in late 2015, and I’m hoping some of the shows from the 2017 lineup will make up for the disappointment this year. That being said, I probably have missed out on a couple of gems this year, so feel free to suggest your favourites below.
This is my first time reviewing anything, so do bear with my ramblings as I try and figure everything out. I also owe a huge thanks to the team at CFensi, especially 0kuo0 and idarklight, for patiently answering all my questions and making sure I settled in with minimal hiccups. All productions are listed in the order they aired, and I’ve also included some short commentary on dramas I dropped.
