K-Drama Reaction: Hospital Ship | Episodes 33-34

The Hospital Ship is facing its biggest iceberg.

The Greedy Businessman

Apparently, politics is not the biggest problem the Hospital Ship is facing. It is the manipulative and greedy businessman Jang Tae-joon (Jung Dong-hwan), who wants to make a profit from health service, which I think should be the responsibility of the state. I won’t go down to the dark and deep discussion of capitalism but let me just vent out my frustration of this situation. The series probably made it more dramatic than it usually is but such thing happens in real life. Hospital Ship reflects how the naive locals became pawns in the game of the powerful.

The Ungrateful Mother

I know I shouldn’t get mad to these mother-daughter tandem suing Song Eun-jae (Ha Ji-won) for malpractice but I can’t help but get irritated by their naivete. They are being used by Doosung Group for their own interest but they don’t know it. How could they put the blame on the same doctor who did her best to help them? Now, the whole crew has been put in a precarious situation because of them. I’m hoping other remote island residents will reflect on how the ship helped them before and would move into action to help the crew.

The Ramyeon’s Story

Eun-jae usually deals with her problems alone but I really like seeing her letting Kwak Hyun (Kang Min-hyuk) stay beside her to comfort her. She took  all the blame but at least, she knew she also needed someone to lean on when things get tough. With all the things she learned from her experience, I think this character growth is what I like the most.

Maknae’s Episode Verdict

My reactions to this series were delayed because I fell ill last week and I was totally looking forward to some more lovey-dovey scene from Eun-jae and Hyun. But they started dropping conflicts and our characters need to face a tough situation again. I guess previous complex situations didn’t prepare me enough for this cruel problems. I’m just hoping the whole ship will sail through this rough waves unscathed.
