    the age difference is too far. Why korean dramas often match artists with much younger actors. Can’t enjoy it.

    I feel energized with Ha Ji Won’s determination and guts during operation, her acting is so natural and she’s like a real doctor. I want to give credit to their make up and prosthetic artist co’z they’re awesome.

    VERN Says:

    love it! yes, ha ji won is back! after this hospital ship, hope to see her again in another drama this time with park hae jin(hopefully)

    Simon K Says:

    Very entertaining drama but a little bit silly. Nobody in the right mind will put a surgery table on a boat of this size, imagine doing surgery on a boat moving irregularly up and down. Also, nobody in the right mind will chop off someone’s hand without explaining first. Very entertaining but also silly, just like the Japanese drama doctor X.

  29. 29
    Susy indrayanti Says:

    Boring story line…i watch this drama just coz ha ji won.

  30. 30
    Memoo Says:

    @Simon k says: under normal circumstances certain actons look silly. Hw they are working under abnormal situations and hve to make do with whatever tool are avaiabe. Choice is to do something or not at.all during an emergency. Hve u heard of how mountain climbers eat up the flesh of dead fellow climbers to survive when they are stuck in a storm. doesnt it sound silly to eat dead bodies? People had done ‘silly’ things to survive and to save lifes.

  31. 31
    Simon K Says:

    @Memoo, don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to start a long argument with you. What I am referring to is I don’t think in real world people will put a surgery table on a boat of this size to begin with (no dentist too). If it is a very large cruise ship then it is OK. If you have ever been on a boat of this size, you will notice how much it move. Hospital boat in real world transporting doctor to remote locations, not operating on the boat. The Japanese drama “clinic on the sea” depict the situation more accurately. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching this drama but I also think it show a lot of wrong concepts, for example, I highly doubt a reconnected hand will work immediately after surgery. BTW, I work in science field so I routinely trouble shooting problems, I tend to nick pick on minor details, that is part of my job.

  32. 32
    USA Says:

    This drama is new & different, and stands out from typical k-drama storylines. So, it’s been entertaining. That said, this drama doesn’t depict real or factual medical situations (i.e.-old lady walking out from the hospital right after the surgery? too many to mention here) However, it’s a great genre for K-drama, and doesn’t negate it’s full of unrealistic events which minimizes the quality of this drama. From artistic perspective, I lost respect for the director. Laziness? Lack of understanding & experience in this field that stands for life & death? Did Budget kill ‘quality’? I can forgive all the mishaps because the drama is unique, but won’t forgive if romance between HJW, who is 12 years older than the young handsome troubled doctor, and KH develops. It’d be unrealistic. And, if the director expects h/her audience to overlook a 12 yr old senior woman romanticizing her younger man, that’d be offensive. True, this drama ignores the details, and the devil is in the details. Audience will however overlook the details for 30 mins, but there’ll be a limit. Don’t test it, director & writer. I can tell HJW is uncomfortable already with that idea. Let her be his mentor or older sister…

  33. 33
    eagle Says:

    It is a very good drama and I don’t understand a lot of comm and complains post here. It is a drama after all not a medical documentary and I really don’t understand this age gap issue. They are actor and drama or movie are their job.
    HJW seems the same KMH age. OMG we are in 21th century common people!!! @USA where you see “old lady walking out from the hospital right after the surgery” ? or “full of unrealistic events” mb we watch different drama !?

    nuna Says:

    Love this drama. Young doctors on a hospital ship who try to know and understand each other while trying to heal patients in the islands. Love cool and skilled dr. SEJ and the warm dr. KH. Fighting HJW , KMH and Hospital ship !!

    BBC Says:

    Better and better drama. Ep 9-10 are so good I laugh and then I cry and become sad, angry . A lot of emotions in an hour and I want to see more and know much about the character. Addictive drama

  38. 38
    Kiry Says:

    Cold- Warm, this the story of this drama itself . There are good scene and wrong scene too but the good one exceed and I’ve come to love this drama and I wish only for a good ep.

    Voracity Says:

    I just find this drama I watch only first 4 ep but I love what I see some new in kdrama field, I hurry to watch the next ep I’m curious about what will happens with this young and frightened dr. except that icicle female doctor SEJ

  40. 40
    MissT Says:

    @Voracity , funny you are,I just finish all ep and I can tell you that that – icicle female doctor- can cry and can laugh sometime, wait and you’ll see. You don’t regret to watch HS it’s a very good drama

  41. 41
    Cslove Says:

    It is great for me so far, I think the emphasis is not on the detailed medical procedures but rather the emotional struggles that these Doctors have to go through to bring them to maturity. It is great pacing with with sufficient details on the emotional developments. While some parts and actions are not clearly explained, it is deliberate attempt to be elaborated in future episodes. This is what I discovered after watching 12 epi. I can’t really tell the age differences and the character description did not elaborated on their age other than I saw HJW is a senior and more experienced doctor. Probably meant to be older just by a few years, common to see such couple. The chemistry is not bad btw the 2 leads although not the best among HJW’s co-star but believable. Shipping them and wanted to see their relationship developed and challenged.

  42. 42
    memoo Says:

    @USA, its unrealistic and offensive for a woman to romance someone 12 yr younger (someone young handsome? Youve never come across this situation in the real? How abt when older actor romancing younger woman? Its okay? Just to let you know my boss’ hushand is exactly 12 yrs younger. They met while he joined us as a temp during his college vacation and she was already a few steps up as a manager. We were surprised but none of us passed comments as though they have committed a crime. It boils down to gender discrimination. Old man good enough to grandfathers can romance minors even on screen but not the other way round.

  43. 43
    eagle Says:

    @memoo I agree, I see this age gap issue in everyplace as if it were a big mistake or crime and a lot of people don’t want to watch this drama bz of it, “it’s unrealistic” they say. Stupid. Mb they are jealous cz HJW looks younger and can plays with a younger and handsome actor ??? hehehe ? Anyway I love drama and I recommend it !!

  44. 44
    Atom Says:

    Very good 9-12 ep. Heartbreaking, with funny moments and sweet moments too. Ii don’t know that the hug between SEJ and KH is a consolation hug or it means something more which involves feelings but they are cute together
