Be prepared for some psychotic, blood-drenching thrill, because the long-awaited direct sequel the medical crime drama, A Great Way to Care <仁心解碼>, is premiering Monday tonight on TVB’s Jade! The sequel sees the return of professional crime fighters portrayed by Alex Fong (方中信), Ben Wong (黃智賢), and Ram Chiang (蔣志光). New additions to the cast, Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), and Aimee Chan(陳茵媺) join together to solve forensic mysteries.
A Great Way to Care, a 2009 warehoused drama that did not get a chance to broadcast in Hong Kong until January 2011, finished its midnight rerun on March 15, 2013. With the first series’ episode finale still fresh in the audience’s minds, ratings for the sequel are expected to reach at least 30 points (approximately 1.92 million viewers).
The first episode of A Great Way to Care 2 will start off with Dr. Ko Lap Yan (Alex Fong) mourning over the death of his wife, Mandy Mok (Kate Tsui). To continue Mandy’s legacy of justice, Yan resigns his senior psychiatry position at the hospital and is recruited to the Forensic Psychiatry Department to become a psychiatry consultant for the Criminal Investigation Department. There, he meets his future work partner Cheuk Wai Yiu (Yoyo Mung). Yan also develops a growing admiration for Chung Kwok Ban (Ben Wong)’s subordinate, Lam Chung Yan (Tavia Yeung).
In regards to the differences between the two series, Alex exclaimed that the sequel will be more daring and darker than its predecessor. Such storylines include an arc about Yoyo asking Alex to donate his sperm, and gruesome and bloody cases that involve rape and murder. Alex admitted, “When I was shooting the series, I asked the producer several times if our drama would be released. I feel that the second series crosses too many extreme boundaries. There will definitely be complaints.”
Power Chan (陳國邦), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), and Oceane Zhu (朱璇) also star in the sequel.
