Despite being pretty similar to other medical dramas and not surprising in any part of it, I really enjoyed it. All the actors did a very good job, the chemistry between Yoo Yeon Seok and Seo Hyeon Jin was no joke. It was very funny whenever it was supposed to be funny, very touching whenever it was supposed to be touching, and heartwarming whenever it was supposed to be heartwarming.

Giving it a solid 4/5 only because it wasn't surprising.

I loved it during the first half, like until 12~14 eps? The story was still unique. It's not like the drama got bad -nothing like that. Imo, it's still one of the best medical dramas I've watched. But I think the story became too mainstream after ep 16 or so. Like, it became another medical drama in a
fight for power.
So it kinda lost the initial plot.

Also, I think Yoon Seo Jung's character got lost in the woods. She was a strong lead trying to overcome her trauma all by herself but suddenly, she has no will whatsoever and does everything Master Kim tells her, regardless of her own opinion. Or well, not regardless, because she actually lost all sense of "own opinion". I'm a bit bitter about it because I love Seo Hyun Jin and her character here had potential, but I think the writers forgot the consistency she had at the beginning of the drama. Especially, the way she overcame her trauma. Like, she had this hand injury but when she attempted suicide and recovered from cutting her vains, her other injury healed too, and this was a neurological condition. Bad.
As well as the trauma she had when Dong Joo flirted with her. Last time they showed her trauma, she suddenly overcame it after talking with the psychologist ONCE and never again showed any hints of ever having PTD. Really not the conclusion I wanted to have for this case.

Despite this, the drama is good and it's worth watching, especially for the first part. It's thrilling and you anticipate each episode. Afterwards, it might have lost its sparkle, but it's still good.
I'll decide my final rating next week with the last episode, but I think I will leave it with 4 stars.

meu deus do ceu, kim sabu é bem insuportável as vezes. Não sei se o ator não soube repassar muito bem a imagem do personagem, pq nunca vi um trabalho dele antes, MAS PELO AMOR DE DEUS!!! 90% do tempo ele só sabe gritar com as outras pessoas. Eu sei que ele é um bom médico, e todo esse blablabla de passado traumático, mas nada disso é desculpa pra ser um folgado da p**** igual ele. Se tem um tipo que eu odeio, é esse. (comentei isso em pt pq sei q se fosse em ingles ja iam cair em cima, dsclp)
Apesar dos pesares, o drama tá ótimo. Tava com medo de ver outro drama médico depois de doctors, mas esse superou

@kirtil @powerpuff I'm up-to-date with the drama and I can tell the over-dramatic and unrelalistic emergency scenes from the first ep are left only there. Like kirtil said, this being a medical drama is bound to have emergency/operation scenes constantly but it's nothing dramatic. The drama moves in a very comfortable pace without crossing any borders. It's very nice and touching.

@powerpuff oh yes we are in agreement. if I'd seen those kinds of scenes in every episode I'd put this one aside for sure.
rest assured so far it seems those scenes seem to be a limited to 1st ep only. This being a medical drama, there are more emergency/operation scenes but nowhere near over-dramatic as them. At least for the first 3 episodes. Can't comment on the rest.

@kirtil i liked their background stories, i didn't like the overdramatic, unrealistic emergency scenes and there was too many of them for one episode.
