Yi Eun Seong, a young graduate from a school in the southern province. He then applies for a post at Hwang Hee University Hospital in the pursuit of his dream of become a great surgeon. There he meets Nam Hye Seok who is a stellar student from Hwang Hee University. The fact that he’s an orphan puts him in an awkward position with his collegues but he overcomes it with a lot of enthusiasm. He is mentored by Choi Kang Guk, one of the best surgeon in the country who is not fond of politics and fight against the system to provide more for the chest surgery department.
The overall quality is good, not the best medical drama I’ve watched though. Besides this, the actors are really good. I enjoyed it, especially the political parts…
