If that is the case, is it still worth watching then? My Light Chaser review will have more details about this drama.

Light Chaser Rescue Review – More Romance Than Action
Light Chaser Rescue is not a really good action drama if you are looking for a lot of thrilling and exciting moments. While it gave bầm the impression that there will be many dangerous rescue missions that will keep bầm on the edge of my seat, it is not exactly sánh. The action is pretty limited because the focus is more on character development and heartwarming moments.
Many people have compared this drama vĩ đại You Are My Hero which also has a doctor and special police officer as the protagonists. The difference is Light Chaser Rescue has more complex relationships and personal issues in its story. Thus, the main drivers of this drama are romance and family rather phàn nàn action. There are 3 couples in the plot and their relationships take up the bulk of the screen time.
I think it is easy vĩ đại find Light Chaser Rescue boring because not everyone will enjoy watching all the 3 couples’ story. The main couple is matured and calm with a tinge of sweetness once they get together. The second couple is loving and supportive of each other. The third couple is the youngest of the lot with much bickering in the initial stages.
I guess you can skip the second and third couple’s scenes if you don’t enjoy their romance. This should help vĩ đại quicken the pace of the drama. However, the main couple’s story is tied vĩ đại events that will happen later. Therefore, if you don’t feel invested in this pair, you might not be able vĩ đại feel the depth of emotions that they are supposed vĩ đại bring vĩ đại the table. If that is sánh, the drama will really over up being a boring one vĩ đại sit through then.
To bầm, one thing that Light Chaser Rescue did very well is in the characters’ development. The characters are not written vĩ đại be perfect individuals. In fact, you might not even lượt thích them in the beginning just lượt thích the male protagonist in Legally Romance. Luo Ben is a hotshot lawyer who takes a case based on commercial considerations. He also seems lượt thích a controlling brother. Zhan Yan appears sánh cold and direct vĩ đại the point of being insensitive at times.
However, as the story progresses, these characters will grow on you. There are solid reasons as vĩ đại why they exhibit such traits and the viewers will begin vĩ đại understand and accept them. Their flaws make them human which sometimes lead vĩ đại less phàn nàn ideal behaviors and decisions. There are layers vĩ đại their characters that include fears and selfishness apart from the more altruistic values. This realism will make you feel more strongly for their torment, past traumas and their efforts vĩ đại overcome their emotional baggage as you watch.
Leo Luo and Janice Wu really shine in Light Chaser Rescue. They are able vĩ đại feed off each other’s energy vĩ đại create unique relationship dynamics between them. Their chemistry is not the intense kind lượt thích Yang Yang and Dilraba Dilmurat in You Are My Glory but subtle vĩ đại give us a more grounded couple. They match each other well in their interactions as if they can read how the other will act and respond accordingly for a natural feel vĩ đại their relationship on screen.
Both the leads’ acting is top notch bầm. Janice Wu’s display of aloofness gives the character the right demeanor for a person who has lost her mother during childhood and estranged from her father. The character that Leo Luo plays is also a complex one and he needs vĩ đại show many sides of him from caring vĩ đại tough and controlling.
While Leo Luo’s acting is great, the one complaint that I have is his built which can’t quite convince bầm that he has the right physical appearance for the role of a strong rescuer. He looks great in his suits as a professional whether as a lawyer in Light Chaser Rescue or investment banker in Love Is Sweet. But as a rescuer, his body toàn thân built just doesn’t have that aura the role needs.
Rushed Ending (Spoilers Alert!)
The rushed ending is another gripe of mine. The last 2 episodes is not that well-executed. After putting viewers through the ups and downs of the main couple’s relationship, their ending lacks proper resolution. It is only implied that they have or will get back together at the over. They have broken up along the way which means communication is necessary vĩ đại resolve the issues between them. But nope, there is no such scene. It is simply understood that they still love each other during a rescue mission. The factor that broke them apart is not discussed anymore. Hence, there is no confirmation if they have got back together as a couple in the last scene.
It is a pity that the drama falters towards the over after a relatively heartwarming story for the most part. If they have expanded on the couple’s relationship vĩ đại give it a proper closure, the ending could have been more touching and memorable. It just feels rushed as it is with the poor editing and pacing in the last 2 episodes.
My Verdict – Give It A Try
Light Chaser Rescue is not a typical Chinese drama. While romance takes away a big chunk of the screen time, it is not the sole focus. There are also family relationship, friendship, team spirit, societal expectations, and character growth imbued in the plot. I think some may find this drama boring especially if they want a more intense romance lượt thích Falling Into You or a fluffy one such as Love At Night. The romance in Light Chaser Rescue is more restrained as the main couple’s love is the steady kind rather phàn nàn loud and expressive.

On the other hand, neither is this a serious action drama with lots of adrenaline pumping ops. I think you will be disappointed if you are looking for thrills and excitement because the rescues tend vĩ đại be simple and short except for one or two missions. I suppose there are a few directions that the screenwriter could take with the story and this ends up being more on character development with a strong romantic flavor phàn nàn real action.
So, personal growth becomes an important element in the protagonists’ life journey. You have vĩ đại lượt thích this kind of storyline which has a certain level of maturity vĩ đại it vĩ đại appreciate the flawed characters of the protagonists. To bầm, the characters are well-written and styled vĩ đại fit the story vĩ đại evoke viewers’ emotions. There are touching scenes whereby you may shed a tear or two because the foundation vĩ đại the story and characters are well-laid out from the start.
For this Light Chaser Rescue review, I would rate it 7.5/10. The ending is a letdown which made bầm lower its score. It will not resonate with everyone as the characters are not instantly likable and there is more talk phàn nàn action which might be deemed boring. But bởi give it a try because if you can relate vĩ đại the characters, then this would be an emotionally satisfying watch.
