We always thought we still have time for everything. We’re wrong. And we would only realize that when it is too late already.
I take it back. Kwak Hyun (Kang Min-hyuk) is not your usual troubled rich guy. His family conflict is not what I expected it to be. I thought it was the usual you-wont-get-your-inheritance type of argument but it wasn’t. Seeing Kwak Hyun take care of his ill father, Kwak Sung, made his whole character more compelling. I also like how each episode of this series reveal something big with our characters. I’m hoping the next one they’ll focus is Kim Jae-gul (Lee Seo-won).
Kim Jae-gul’s Hyung
The usually unsympathetic Korean Medicine doctor suddenly cared to a shaman who has cirrhosis. It was not surprising to see Kwak Hyun and Song Eun-jae (Ha Ji-won) go out of their way to treat a patient. But seeing Kim Jae-gul treat her just because she told him about his brother made me more curious about Jae-gul’s story. He wasn’t just a rude and happy-go-lucky doctor. He has a story to tell. Just like everyone in the Hospital Ship.
Song Eun-jae finally cried and I’m ruined. She gets back to work right after her mother’s funeral. She may seem heartless but she’s just stubborn. She’s too stubborn to accept she’s not in control every time. She’s too stubborn to accept her mother’s death wasn’t her fault. She’s too stubborn to accept feeling sad won’t make her weak. Eun-jae finally grieved and I bawled my eyes out in that scene.
I like how this series’ sub-stories are being used to make progress with the main plot. The new characters they introduce is teaching these doctors to take one step in dealing with their own woes. I can’t wait to see these characters finally deal with all the painful things they are running away from.
