The story is set in Princess Anne Hospital primarily in the pediatric department center around 3 doctors Dr. Jonathan Hui, Dr. Amos Fong, and Dr. Eman Cheung. The three batchmates are close friends that intern together, due to one faithful surgery, Jonathan and Amos turned their backs on each other. Decades later, they are back working together in the same hospital, Eman became their mediator.
Director shared that the story is set in a hospital, not only it is a medical drama but it focuses on the pediatric department. The relationship between the patients and doctor, the complicated feelings that parents have for their sick children. That is the reason why he cast Kevin Cheung, Linda Chung, and Catherine Chau as his main characters. For Kenneth Ma, he is well known to flourish well in doctor roles, so it is natural to cast him for this drama.
Kenneth Ma shares more of his role, portraying Dr. Amos Fong as a consultant for the pediatric department which mingles a fair bit with hospital politics. He usually trades things with other key stakeholders for something in return. Sounds evil? But his core and at the bottom of his heart, it is always patients first.
Kevin Cheung shares that it has been 4 years since his last TVB drama and his first time working on a medical-based drama as a doctor. The challenge to him is the technical terms and knowledge required for this role as Jonathan. Jonathan is a hot-temper individual but passionate about saving lives.
Linda Chung shares that her character as Cheung Yi Sam Eman is a strong-witted individual, she is smart and reputable in the industry. Been 5 to 6 years since her last full-on drama with TVB and in the process, she got married and became a mom of two beautiful children. So the way she thinks and the process will definitely differ and can relate more with the drama as a whole.
Him Law shares his role as Max who is someone that lacks a lot of confidence but does not means he is not skillful. Max’s mother is a brilliant doctor, growing up he feels the pressure, and even when he became a doctor, Max felt like he is living under her shadow. After moving to work in the pediatric department under Princess Anne Hospital, he starts to grow gradually.
The drama is set to premiere on 18 October 2021, with new episodes out every Monday to Friday.
