Pak Shi On was an autistic child. Growing up, his abilities enabled him to study medicine to help others but he faces rejection due to his handicap. After an incident captured on camera where Shi On saves a child with his skills, the hospital he has been associated with by the media is forced to hire him as a first year resident. He is helped by second year resident Cha Yun Seo but things are difficult for him since he hasn’t yet evolved passed the emotional and mental state of a ten year old.
It was a cute drama though I’m having a hard time believing in this story. I would qualify it as a ‘medical fantasy’. This said, the actors are good. Interesting performance from Ju Weon whose character was really touching. I had a good time.
