Wei Dahun saved the whole drama
"Fireworks of My Heart", starring Yang Yang and Wang Churan, although is a youth drama that incorporates elements of firefighting and medical care, the cast members are exceptionally good-looking, giving it a touch of an idol drama vibe.
Even before the drama aired, the two main actors were rumored to be in a romantic relationship. This adds to the anticipation of their on-screen chemistry.
In "Fireworks of My Heart", Yang Yang portrays the male lead, Song Yan, while the female lead, Xu Qin, is played by Wang Churan. They were childhood sweethearts in high school, and their deep bond was formed through their early encounters and mutual understanding.
However, due to family circumstances, they were forced to separate. Ten years later, they meet again, with the male lead now being a fire station captain and the female lead working as an emergency department doctor.
Song Yan's character traits are quite evident, with clear strengths and weaknesses. He is stubborn, hot-tempered, and has a strong sense of self-esteem. He is hardworking, resilient, and pushes himself to the limit, always striving to prove his worth. However, his stubbornness prevents him from easily listening to others.
Like Xu Qin, Song Yan also experienced the loss of his parents during childhood. He was taken in by his uncle's family, who treated him as their own son. Growing up in a loving environment, he developed an outgoing personality and fearlessness. He didn't excel academically during his school years and was somewhat of a troublemaker in high school. It was only after breaking up with Xu Qin in high school that his self-esteem took a blow, leading him to strive for success and refuse to lose to fate or himself. Since becoming a firefighter, he has always aimed to be the top performer in firefighting competitions, reflecting his ambitious nature.
Xu Qin, on the other hand, appears weak and indecisive but is actually quite resilient. After being adopted by the Meng family, she is controlled by the strict and snobbish Mother. She feels insecure and powerless under her mother's control.
However, when working as an emergency department doctor, Xu Qin displays a calm and professional demeanor. She remains unaffected by emotions and is confident in her professional skills, willingly taking on responsibilities. Moreover, she doesn't back down when faced with unfriendly colleagues who mock her for relying on her family background to work.
Xu Qin is not genuinely weak. After being adopted by the Meng family, she receives careful care, despite her mother's controlling nature. Her mother, though strict, takes good care of her, having spent a substantial amount of money to send her to study medicine in the United States. Her father is gentle, and her brother also takes care of her. She simply cannot abandon her family because she is also realistic and wants everything.
While longing for love, she cannot abandon her family, which is a difficult thing to do. Why should others be able to have both family love and romantic love while she is forced to choose only one? Why can't she have both?
Unexpectedly, when the drama "Fireworks of My Heart" finished airing, the supporting male character, played by Wei Daxun, climbed to the top of the hot search rankings, surpassing even the male lead, becoming the drama's biggest talking point. The production team was taken aback because who could have anticipated that the well-established main couple would be effortlessly defeated.
Wei Daxun portrays the female lead's brother, Meng Yanchen, who is a textbook example of a "sickly sweet" and refined character. Few entertainers can successfully portray such a complex personality, alternating between an angelic and devilish demeanor. Wei Daxun genuinely captures the essence of the sickly sweet male character from the novel.
The side romance between the brother and sister is captivating. By comparison, the main storyline appears lackluster.
Meng Yanchen is decisive and composed in his work, but he carries an indescribable sense of oppression when facing his mother.
Although people initially watched "Fireworks of My Heart" for the main couple, they were drawn to Wei Daxun's character. He has great adaptability, and if not for his increased presence in variety shows, the immersion into his character would be even stronger.
From the way he looks at the female lead, the sweet scene, the warning from the cold and aloof CEO, his restrained behavior, and his attitude towards the male lead, it's all addictively good.

Heartwarming and Authentic
Fireworks of My Heart is a drama that requires patience. Personally, it wasn't until the 5th episode that I gradually immersed myself in it, and by the 10th episode, I felt deeply connected to it.
The drama beautifully combines the themes of career and love, depicting the bravery and dedication of firefighters who silently endure the hardships, dangers, misunderstandings, and neglect in their mission to safeguard countless lives and happiness. However, this alone is not enough. They must also bear the responsibility of evoking emotions and elevating these emotions to a higher level, which is no easy task.
In the drama, there are no "perfect" characters. The main characters, Song Yan (played by Yang Yang) and Xu Qin (played by Wang Churan), face insurmountable challenges. The supporting characters, Meng Yanchen (played by Wei Daxun) and Suo Jun (played by Zhang Binbin), each carry their own burdens. Yet, each character finds their own sanctity and receives salvation.
The drama portrays ordinary firefighting heroes, but it also explores deeper questions about forgiveness, love, and acceptance. It touches on the struggles of flawed individuals and their pursuit of redemption. Through the characters' journeys, we are reminded that heroes are not without flaws or hardships.
Fireworks of My Heart captures the realistic details of the firefighting profession and portrays the challenges faced by the characters. It highlights the intense training, the dangers of the job, and the sacrifices made by firefighters. By focusing on these details, the drama creates a sense of authenticity and emotional resonance.
The characters of Song Yan and Xu Qin embody the universal struggle of ordinary people facing their own insecurities, regrets, and limitations. Their stories reflect our own struggles and dilemmas in life. We are compelled to question our own worthiness, the possibility of change, and the search for personal growth and salvation.
