My Dear Guardian

was held in Beijing in May, and the drama has since started to run on the online streaming site iQiyi on Tuesday.

Adapted from an online novel, the production starring Huang Jingyu and Li Qin tells a romantic tale about a soldier named Liang Muze and military doctor named Xia Chu, showing how they fell in love with each other while fulfilling their duties.

The crew members made meticulous preparations for the drama. In order to reflect the professionalism of doctors and soldiers, they did interviews and research in the army and hospitals to collect information for their production.

“Professionals offered medical and military guidance to us, and part of our story was shot in the army,” says Ji Tianyi, director of the drama.

“We want to show the lives of a group of soldiers, especially their emotional expressions, and hope to strike a chord with the hearts of audience members,” Ji adds.
