Han Geo Su inherited his father’s clinic and desperately tries to save it from the loan sharks. To help, he hires Choi Yong Wu, a talented surgeon who owes his career to Geo Su’s father, and counts on nurse Hong Gi Nam to handle the patients.
****SPOILER WARNING**** And another one that frustrates me. This started slowly but got more interesting as the characters unveil their true nature. Good performance from the cast. I love Hong Ji Min, she’s so funny!^^ So Yi Hyeon has a real comedic power and she can act dramatic moments well too. I think she’s a natural. She conveys emotions really well, I just love her!^^ The good point for this drama is the format. Like Sign, each episode integrates individual patient stories within a bigger plot that develops along the episodes. Like I mentioned it before, I like this kind of dramas. The down point in this drama is the ending. It’s so so… I love Geon Su’s story ending but why the f$&% does Dr Choi come back??? Plus, nurse Gi Nam doesn’t make any choices!!! WT$#@&%!!! Damn it!!!
