A good looking male lead in uniform? Yes, please!

Bai Jing Ting's baby face has matured over the years. At the same time, he diligently trained his body to appear in You Are My Hero in tip top condition, helping him fit perfectly into the special ops agent role who takes on dangerous rescue missions.

If eye candies are something you consider when it comes to selecting dramas to watch, we can assure you won't be disappointed.

#2 Main leads' exceptional acting skills

We know how frustrating it is when the main leads of a drama possess mediocre acting skills as that could prevent viewers from getting immersed. But there's no need to worry with You Are My Hero, as Bai Jing Ting and Sandra Ma both have notable productions under their belts, and have been recognised for their exceptional acting skills. Sandra Ma has also acted in critically acclaimed films such as Soul Mate. 

#3 Second lead couple's cute interactions

Shu Wen Bo is a dorky police on the SWAT team and Ruan Qing Xia is a reporter who visits the SWAT team's base to film a promotional video. The characters initially start off on the wrong foot but as time goes by, their adorable romance starts blossoming.

#4 Exciting first episode

Minor spoiler: Xing Ke Lei and Mi Ka meet in the first episode while he is on a rescue mission to save the hostages from a jewellery store robbery.

The first episode is action-packed and exciting, keeping viewers on their toes waiting to see what happens next. If action mixed with romance is your cup of tea, you will probably really enjoy watching You Are My Hero.

#5 Interesting military-medical storyline

We have not seen any Chinese dramas with a similar premise as You Are My Hero so it's definitely a breath of fresh air. It's also interesting to see how the characters who have very different jobs come together to save lives.

Watch to see how they emerge stronger and find love while navigating through danger and helping save lives at the same time.
