[Drama Recap] First impressions: there will be no second dates with Qiao Zhenyu’s Psychologist 心理师 or Yang Le’s Hypnotist 被催眠的催眠师 (2017)

I’m sad to be writing this since I had high expectations for both dramas and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately though, it just didn’t work out. And, it’s actually unfair of me to group these two dramas together as The Hypnotist (被催眠的催眠师) is far superior to Psychologist (心理师) in terms of directing style, acting, cinematography, and the overall story in general. But, since I watched them both back-to-back yesterday and these were the two dramas I initially planned on recapping, it feels more appropriate for me to make one announcement instead of two.

In short, the verdict is I will not be writing recaps for either drama because they’re not my cup of tea. If you want to read the longer version of how I felt about the first episode of Qiao Zhenyu’s Psychologist and Yang Le’s Hypnotist though, then continue reading below!

Web drama The Hypnotist (被催眠的催眠师) will be premiering on Sohu TV on April 13th. The story takes place in the turbulent era of the early 1900’s. Hypnotist Kong Mu (Yang Le who was in Back In Time) along with hot blooded female police officer Song Yi (Zhu Yan Man Zi) encounter a series of mysterious deaths, such as the the commander’s strange suicide, and many other bizarre unexplainable cases. They use hypnosis as a way to uncover the truth in this suspenseful drama.
