    the operation is a little bit messy, appearantly the doctors in this serial really love yelling when they do the operation and the 2nd female lead lack of compassion of a doctor, her face doesn’t change much even when she’s laugh or angry (too many surgery done maybe? making her face too stiff) just like a barbie dressing as a doctor in this serial..

    but, the story is somehow good though.. :)

    I really hope this will have a part 2 after 4 years since it aired. This was so great that I can’t really recover how this drama got me. I can barely hear its ost every morning even though 2days already passed since I finished watching. Seriously. So love it!

    I fervently hope that there will be Season 2 for this drama series. This was a really awesome drama! The plot, artists and staff who created this were truly talented. You knew how to stir people’s interest. The protagonist’s love story was quite hanging too that it needs continuation. Hopefully there will be one to look forward to…
    It was also amazing that most of the casts in this drama were in the ongoing tv series of Miss Korea!
