Viewers are a bit taken aback by the unrealistic amount of artistic license in the new romantic comedy C-drama The Centimeter of Love <爱的厘米>, exclaiming that it is unnecessary to “use brains” to watch the show.
Starring Tong Liya (佟丽娅) and Tong Dawei (佟大为), the drama centers on a love story between a doctor and a commercial pilot. In one episode, Tong Liya is piloting a plane back to China and comes across some volcanic ash. The scene was dramatic—Tong Liya smells something off, but the plane’s captain and co-captain insists that nothing is wrong and continues to fly on course.
As predicted, the plane flies through volcanic ash. The captain passes out from intense turbulence. Without a moment’s hesitance, the brave Tong Liya rushes to the cockpit to take lead. Despite the plane’s jerkiness, Tong Liya’s hair and makeup remains untouched. She remains flawless
Reporting her coordinates and situation to air traffic control, Tong Liya states that their altitude was “30,000 meters” before they came across volcanic ash. This is unrealistic, as commercial planes typically fly an altitude of 10,000 meters.
When the plane lands safely, Tong Liya still looks flawless, hair and makeup still on point, while everyone else in the plane panicked in a mess. It didn’t look like she had just suffered through a life or death situation.
