TVB series, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>, will be airing in Hong Kong on February 13, 2012. Produced by Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德), the medical drama stars Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Tavia Yeung (楊 怡), Him Law (羅仲謙), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), Candy Chang (張慧雯), Ben Wong (黃智賢), and Raymond Cho (曹永廉).

Each day and night,in a race against time, a group of medical interns and residents attempt to help their patients triumph illness and death. However, what is the real mission of these future doctors and what can be mastered in the end?

Graduating neurosurgery resident, Cheung Yat Kin (Kenneth Ma) was intent on sending his disabled younger brother to study overseas. Thus, Yat Kin concentrated on work to earn money and neglected his own love life until he met medical intern, Fan Zi Yu (Tavia Yang), who possessed the same passion in medical studies. Zi Yu came from a family of famous doctors. Strongly attracted by Yat Kin’s abilities and personality, Zi Yu took the initiative to pursue him.

While Yat Kin was still hesitant, the sudden death of his brother led to Yat Kin’s drastic change in temperament. The staff of the entire hospital, including a group of new interns, such as Yeung Pui Chung (Him Law) and Zi Yu’s younger sister, Kong Mei Shuet (Mandy Wong) respected Yat Kin greatly. During Yat Kin’s lowest point, Zi Yu was diagnosed with a serious illness….

Jayne: I look forward to Kenneth and Tavia’s partnership, but the plot does not sound too original. Since Kenneth is a neurosurgeon, will Tavia’s character have a brain tumor? Will Kenneth need to put aside his grief for his brother in order to operate on Tavia and save the love of his life? Will their romantic survive the cruel fate of life or will medical skill and science triumph in the end?

    The English title called ‘The Hippocratic Crush’. Does this mean it will be romance centric like MOL?

    Why can’t they just name is ’36 Hours On Call’. I don’t like this title. Kinda demean the Hippocratic Oath.

      I think it is in the end a love story. I am bored with Tavia. Can’t she have a different hairstyle? And she looks too old to be an intern. Make her an expert already. I mean a senior can fall in love with a junior.

        She looks old, but nothing say she can’t be an intern at 30. Maybe she’s an old intern?

        I think its just the haircut which makes her look more mature.if she doesnt cut her hair and let it grow long.she might look muchmuch younger.

        Can’t understand why Tavia would not get different hairstyles/looks for different characters, especially when her series are aired so closely together. It gets very monotonous watching her series.

    i remember watching an interview with tavia and kenneth and they were saying how they really wanted to be an on-screen couple

    even when they were casted in MOL, they thought they finally had the chance but actually they only remained a colleague relationship…

    now they finally have the chance!

        Fala only had 2 series in 2011, so I’m actually looking forward to this series. Also, I love Roger and Sharon! I’m actually more tired of seeing Tavia and Kate since each had 4 series. Can’t believe another series of Tavia is showing so soon, especially with similar hair style from her previous roles. Hopefully her acting is better here.

        Let me predict. Kenneth will pout when upset, pout when he is angry, basically will pout up a storm. Tavia will cry loudly and like the world is coming to an end in every occasion. And they will stand with their hands crossed to show a professional at work or hands in pockets, will have nicknames, go to pub, drink red wine, have big apartments.

        I know the stories are similar sounding, but at least give me something else. Maybe Tavia dying in 3rd episode and for the rest is a floating spirit watching over Kenneth.

        I just hope the english scenes are ok.

    • CY replied:

      I think Tavia needs to put on a bit more weight to round up her face a bit so her nose doesn’t look so prominent, use lesser make up and change to a new hairstyle. I feel that longer hair suits her better and with a rounder face, she will look younger.

    Even if it’s not the hairstyle…Tavia looks really old now!!! TVB should stop giving her young role, she’s not suitable!! Give other actresses a chance.
    In addition, Tavia’s acting is the same in all her recent series. Boring!

    Sounds like a rip off from the American medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy”?

    Kenneth = Derek Shepherd
    Tavia = Meredith Grey
    Mandy = Lexie Grey
    Him = Karev/O’Malley (depending on his character)

    Still, I’m pretty excited to see what TVB has to offer with this series. I do love medical dramas!

    • josie replied:

      But who would be McSteamy?

      I think Kenneth is more Paul ching than McDreamy.

      Tavia is ok as Meredith b/c the character is annoying anyways.

      Him law is probably karev. I can see him wearing those wife beater tank tops when changing out of his scrubs.

    • Nicole replied:

      Why do you accuse people of being against Tavia for doing plastic surgery? Or that we consider plastic surgery “Abnormal”?

      It’s her denial that she has even done plastic surgery, that makes people laugh. If she did it, have the guts to admit it. It’s like Angelababy, who obviously has plastic surgery, but still says she’s “au naturale”. Viewers are not blind.

      Not to mention Tavia’s nose looks way worse nowadays from too much things she injected in it.

      PS: My best friend had PS on her nose. But her nose looks 100x better than Tavia’s.

    • TVBFanatic replied:

      Plastic surgery is “normal”? really? Not in my neck of the woods. Plastic surgery is not normal. it’s sad to think that as a race we are pushing people into PS.

      And as Nicole says, it’s more the denial that anything has been done.

      I like Tavia as an actress. I think she can command the stage and steal the scene.. but I’ll be honest in saying that I couldn’t not take my eyes off that nose in more than one episode of “Sorry Sir, Yes Sir.” It’s a distraction :(

        Sure not everything is about Tavia, but if everyone is going to let one petty thing like her nose get in their way of actually realizing how great her acting is then what’s the point on watching?

        I wonder why most actors and actresses are good looking instead of ugly. Don’t you think?
        Her nose distracts people from her “good acting”. When you watch her on screen, you only see a “nose”. And whether her acting is good is people’s opinion. Many people find her acting boring these days.

        I’m pretty sure now that Nicole is not a fan of Tavia. However, I still don’t get why a nose can be distracting. Nancy Sit has a huge mole right in the middle and I don’t see a discussion about that.

        As for her “boring acting” I have to say it is not her fault but the roles she has to play. Remember Dicey Business? She was given a role that allowed her to be playful. For this series you won’t expect a doctor or medical intern to be bouncing around with breast implants (like she had in dicey business)

        ” I still don’t get why a nose can be distracting. Nancy Sit has a huge mole right in the middle and I don’t see a discussion about that.”

        That shows how unsuitable her new nose is for her face that viewers find it even more distracting that Nansy Sit’s mole.

        @JustStoppingBy
        Why do you need to confirm I’m not a fan of Tavia when I never denied it?

        And Kidd has already explained why her nose is distracting. Furthermore, I do hope you know that Nancy Sit’s mole is natural and she did not implant a giant mole in the middle of her face? Unfortunately, I cannot make the same declaration for Tavia.

        Most people get plastic surgery rumours when they become prettier/more handsome, eg. Kate, Fala, Elaine Yiu, Raymond Lam etc. I don’t know if they really did it, but if they did, it’s money well spent as they look better now. Smart move.
        For Tavia who ends up looking worse than before? It’s the opposite.

        @ Nicole
        I am not confirming anything. By saying that you are not a fan of Tavia shows that you will continue to hate her and her nose. So there is nothing that can change your mind about Tavia.

        I did some research and yes, I notice the nose getting a more defined shape. However, I think she can still deliver a stellar performance.

        Again, I just want to say, if one minor physical appearance is distracting enough to distract you from the show, then good luck walking down the streets or applying for a job. Or paying attention when you face someone with just ONE MINOR physical distraction. (ie: huge breast, nose, lips, teeth, feet.)

        I saw deveral facial changes on her. Howevet is is really a minor matter. Her acting got downhill and too many crying to annoying is another reason and I dun think it is minor anymore. I used to think she can act.

        I think Tavia is an awesome actress, and The Hippocratic Crush is IMO one of her best dramas ever since the broadcast of TMOL! Her acting in episode 13 was AMAZING.

        @Nicole

        I see that you don’t like Tavia, and find her nose distracting, but everyone has their own opinions. As for her nose, I agree it looks different from before, but I don’t find it to be a disruption towards her looks onscreen.
