Summary: [You are My Hero] is a drama that primarily focuses on two individuals whose jobs are part of the essential services, and how they fell in love. Mi Ka (Sandra Ma) is a doctor while Xing Ke Lei (Bai Jing Ting) is a special ops agent. They first met during one of Xing Ke Lei’s mission and reunited few years later when Mi Ka attended a training program at the military academy, where Xing Ke Lei was working at. While they started off on the wrong footing due to various misunderstandings; as the drama progresses, both of them realized that they had feelings for each other.
NOTE: For those who are fans of Korean dramas as well, one may be skeptical towards this drama as the summary/description appears to be similar to [Descendants of the Sun]. However, as I had watched both dramas, what I can say is that the resemblance found between two dramas are the jobs of the leading characters and some of the story arcs. Despite the similarity, both dramas have different approaches on how to present the drama to viewers.
PLOT: The drama started off with intensity, and within the first 10 minutes, I was drawn in. The male and female leads story arcs were well thought of and well paced; which doesn’t resulted in the drama being too rushed/draggy. For most of the supporting characters, their roles in the show were also well defined and it doesn’t feel as though much water injection was included (apart from 2 of the roles introduced in one of their mini arcs).
ROMANCE: This drama definitely had a fair share of romance, as apart from the main leads, there were also two other couples that developed throughout the drama. Each couple had their own representation of what it is like to fall in love/being in a relationship, which kept the drama interesting. Of course, my personal favorite couple from the show will be lead roles Mi Ka and Xing Ke Lei. They were extremely adorable as a on-screen couple.
If you are someone who likes to watch romance genre, loves male leads decked in uniform, I do recommend this!
