HK-Drama: LA18 noon《俠醫傳奇》 Shanghai Legend (10/11/2012-11/11/2012)

Since the majority of the key actors and actresses of this drama are from Hong Kong, I would like to label this show a HK-drama, even though the backdrop of the drama took place in and around Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s.

This is a 30-episode drama about a doctor in the 1930s who specialized in both Western and Chinese medicine. He had a great medical practice and a beautiful wife in Nanjing. But in an unfortunate twist of fate, his wife was framed as a spy and thus killed. As the husband of a spy, he was wanted by the authority as well. With help from friends who believed in his integrity as a doctor and person, he escaped to Shanghai.

In Shanghai, he had to practice medicine incognito. He was able to help people who would not normally receive proper medical care. He was appreciated by many. While in Shanghai, he also tried to find the culprit who framed his wife. He wanted revenge.

This drama follows the good doctor's life in Shanghai after he escaped there.
