What do you get when you add 妙手仁心 with a dash of 流氓医生? Voila! Channel 8′s own medical-themed drama The Oath.
The Oath 《行医》tells the story of 2 medical practitioners and their vastly different approaches to treating patients. The protagonists, a Chinese physician and a Western doctor, cannot be more different though their paths are destined to cross. Their keen competition begins when both get involved in a complex medical case.
So, who has taken “The Oath”?
Christopher Lee plays 吴国恩, a Chinese physician. Despite his carefree outward appearance, he takes the duty of saving lives more seriously than anyone else in the world.
After a long absence, Ix Shen is back on screen as 关德维, a Western doctor. To him, excelling in the role of a doctor merely gives him career satisfaction.
Jesseca Liu is 杨敏妃, fellow Western doctor who is highly principled. She is constantly at loggerheads with Christopher as she denounces the effectiveness of Chinese medicine due to a personal tragedy. She is also the love interest of both men.
The rest include Ann Kok who plays 叶芝仪, the only non-medical personnel and is Christopher’s ex girlfriend. Zhang Zhenhuan is 郭建中, a rookie doctor who idolises 关德维 (Ix). Kate Pang plays 黄思云, a houseman who later falls in love with 郭建中 (Zhenhuan).

#1 – The caricature that touched hearts – Jesseca Liu and Olivia Ong
Mdm Yeow Ah Mo was clearly impressed by a caricature of her, done by Malaysian artiste Jesseca Liu.
Singing and drawing have no relation to each other, but on Sunday night, these two talents were put together for a pleasant surprise, when former MediaCorp actress Jesseca Liu and local songstress Olivia Ong took to the stage with Mdm Yeow Ah Mo.
The 77-year-old lady, who has no kith or kin, was rooted to a chair for 5 minutes, as Liu hurriedly scrambled to piece a caricature of the lady, who spoke mainly Cantonese. At the same time, the 25-year-old Ong belted a medley of evergreen hits by the late Teresa Teng, accompanied by a band. The final product? A finely-drawn piece of art by the Langkawi-born Liu, bringing Mdm Yeow to tears.
Even the simplest of acts can move the deepest of emotions.
