Since airing in Hong Kong, Big White Duel 2 <白色強人II > has been well-received with the local audience and even helped revive TVB’s stagnant viewership ratings. The fast-paced medical drama centers around six doctors played by Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Moses Chan (陳豪), Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), and Kelly Cheung (張曦雯).
By far, the most popular pairing is Moses and Kelly. With his easygoing personality and masculine appearance, Moses’ character has strong ethics in serving his patients’ needs instead of ascending ranks inside the hospital.
Although Kelly’s character is often short with Moses, she does not want to give him any false hope of a chance at rekindling their past relationship. Viewers praised Moses’ for his convincing depiction as a doctor, and commented on Kelly’s character for being a great doctor, friend, and girlfriend. Her pairing with Roger is also well accepted by the audience.
Another popular pairing is Natalie and Kenneth, whose romance continues from the first installment of the series. As they are good friends in real life and also acted in four dramas together, they exhibit an easy chemistry. The audience is also touched by Natalie’s character’s understanding and care of Kenneth.
Although the above two pairings are heating up the romance meter, Nancy Wu is the central antagonist driving the plot. In a recent episode, her character’s was revealed to have previously faced disciplinary hearing after performing an illegal operation for her ill boyfriend (William Chak 翟威廉) in London. Through her layered performance, Nancy embodied her character’s sorrow and helplessness.
Thrilled to exchange sparks with Nancy onscreen, William enthused, “I was very touched by her acting. and I could really feel the somberness emitting from her character.”
