Synopsis

A drama that deals with the brain and neurosurgeons.

Lee Kang Hoon (Shin Ha Kyun), who graduated from the top medical school, works at the top hospital, and is the top neurosurgeon around. Basically, he’s Brain No. 1. (And he works on brains, too!) He has ambitions to become the director at his university hospital. He is obsessed with success, which is probably both his greatest flaw and strength, since it makes him steely and fierce.

However, once he meets his sunbae Kim Sang Chul (Jung Jin Young), the prickly genius doctor and world famous neurologist, he turns over a new leaf and becomes a sincere doctor. Seo Joon Suk (Jo Dong Hyuk) is a doctor and will become Lee Kang Hoon’s rival. Yoon Ji Hye (Choi Jung Won) is also a neurosurgeon who grew up in an ordinary family. She is extremely strict in matters of work and study, but has a warm bedside manner with her patients.

Note

I) This Drama was original casting by Lee Sang Yoon, Yoon Seung Ah and Lee Hyun Jin, but they all left on 20/Sep/2011 after had their first script reading on 17/Sep/2011.

II) Because of conflict of fee payment between South Korea’s integrated cable operators and KBS (cable operators want KBS, SBS and MBC to lower the retransmission fee of their programs), the cable TV system operators stopped carrying the signal of KBS2 TV station on 16/January/2012, causing the ratings of KBS drama series Brain dropped significantly, falling from top ranking position to last ranking position. The cable operators have announced that if this impasse cannot be resolved, they will consider to stop relaying the signal of MBC and SBS as well (Source)

    Each time i watch a Korean drama i say that this was the best Korean drama ever, but now and really this was the best worldwide drama that i ever seen in my entire life , this was a brilliant drama, the script, the characters, the actors and actresses were all excellent, especially Shin Ha Kyun he deserves an award for this brilliant acting. I don’t know why people are obsessed with American dramas while there exist such a great dramas from Korea. Thank u Korea for this brilliant drama.

    Shin Ha Kyun did excellent job in this drama. Frankly speaking, I am addicted to korean drama and people call me a drama queen just because I have watched so many korean dramas. But among so many dramas, I think this is the best and most meaningful drama I have ever watched. I love how this drama shows all the professionals explanation, and they really showed people the real image of brain and how the surgery goes on. Also, the love story is the best part, he expressed the love to ji hye without needed to say ‘i love you’. It is so difference compare to other drama.

    p.s. I have watched this drama for more than two times. So compelling!

    Dear KBS, realisators , scriptwriters, producers, writers , composer, actors, actresses, Yeoju Institute,

    BRAIN, is undoubtedly the best drama ever created, produced, directed, played and aired. With this unforgettable and priceless drama, through its plot and its outstanding actors, actresses and musicians so touching, and incredibly realistic, you have blessed each human soul. Here is not an exageration. You’ve made a great job, incredibly human ! Such a benediction, a gift for everyone. Thousands Warm Thank You. Please, invest to create and produce a continuation to this priceless drama. You will invest money and time, and … you will earn an international gratitude from each human soul. Dr Kim Sang Chul said beautifully that our brain is our true heart, so please do not forget that using your brain as your heart, investing in a such new work would be a great benediction for you, for us, for everyone across the world.

    Shin Ha Kyun’s character of course is probably the one that was the most touching one, in which every human being struggling every day, was able to recognize. His mother was also the incarnation of the deep love that each mother accross the world has for her children inside of her, despite of the universal hardness of life. 20 episodes were already a huge blessing from each of you , but please believe me, this drama still deserves episodes , a season at least. Please. The following plot could be and should be, I honestly think, be centered on the new explicit romance between Dr Lee and his beloved Dr Ji Hye, because it could allow another perception of the main character, a new stage in his human life, in which so much have already been and would still recognized themselves. The staging of their true romance should be the occasion to bring some sweetness and humour afther such difficulties, I do not think that it would change the serious spirit of drama and its previous success. Besides, the others main characters should be also highlighted through the plot: Ji Hye’s love, Matron Hong, etc. The following plot should also deals with Dr Kim Sang Chul and the academic and medical researches, like previously.

    Once again : Please, invest to create and produce a continuation to this priceless drama. You will invest money and time, and … you will earn an international gratitude from each human soul. Dr Kim Sang Chul said beautifully that our brain is our true heart, so please do not forget that using your brain as your heart, investing in a such new work would be a great benediction for you, for us, for everyone across the world.

    Warm greetings from France.
