    @memoo – Please spare me of gender-crap because it’s disgusting whether fe/male. Saw a middle-age Korean man holding hands with a 20-something Korean woman on vacation in Thailand, and it was disgusting. The young woman was embarrassed & moved away from him almost hiding whenever people stared at them. People instinctively know what’s right/wrong, it’s innate. Believe in EQUAL RIGHTS for ALL wo/men? It includes gender, so wo/men are held to the same standards. If your definition of “gender right” is based on emotion – what makes me happy – think carefully bcoz what “Feels good or happy today” will most likely change & even feel differently tomorrow, in 2018, 2028, 2048.

    What you personally perceive to ‘feel good about someone/thing’ doesn’t translate the same or make it ‘right’ for others. Therefore, you should NOT attack differing views, particular with divisive-based rights crap. Personally, living/viewing my life from a “gender right” lense isn’t a priority. Too busy living my best as God’s child first & foremost, then as a mom/dad, son/daughter, sister/brother, grandson/granddaughter, architect/lawyer/chef, nephew/niece/friend, Caucasian/Asian/African/Latino, then I’m a wo/men. Don’t care to boast or announce or stomp my feet to all the folks that I’m a female. Those I love/care already know/see. They know who/what/why Sam is all about. Also this gender-right crap indirectly attacks some of my own family members, professional colleagues, and dear friends – of my opposite sex. So think carefully when you attack a stranger like me – are you attacking your family member who is not of your same gender?

    Lastly, since you like/think HJW is beautiful/great actress (indeed she was in Secret Garden & Empress Ki – watched both) who looks younger, do you expect many famous 20-something male actors to line up to co-lead in romantic roles with her? Seriously doubt successful males would – bet their agents said don’t. Today at 38, HJW lead roles are limited compared to in her 20s – reality for ALL aging fe/male actors. Could you see HJW in Father is Strange as Byun HyeYoung? Lee YooRi, who was awesome & looks younger too, is 37 & her male character Ryu SooYoung 38. If RSY role was given to a 25 yr old male instead, would Father is Strange be the same?

    HJW is evolving, we have to wait & see where/how she lands. If her role in this drama catapults her career again, wonderful! I’m not seeing it based on my previous comments. HJW has already surprised us with her athleticism in Secret Garden & Empress Ki, what else could she surprise us with today? I like her, but our insatiable need to be entertained is ever challenging tasks for actors, directors, writers. Sadly, this drama stopped entertaining me at ep 15. Enjoy.

    memoo Says:

    @USA,“you should not attack differing views.” wow, in what way? Ive responded to ur suggestion tt its unrealistic for a woman to romance a much younger guy. Ive related something Real where pple with the age gap you find unrealistic still get married. So whats the problem.

    The drama portrays the interaction btwn sr doctor with a young team at diff levels of their careers. As far as I’m concerned the profiles of the actors/actress match the plot characters. Cast may not be star-studded with “successful males” but as long as the they perform well on the roles they’re called to perform I don’t see whats so offensive abt it.

    Isnt it presumptious to conclude what I think and expect?: “since you like/think HJW is beautiful/great actress”and then more ridiculously question if I expect a host of successful young actors will queue to co lead with her after this drama just cos of her younger look. You sound pretty insulting and off putting to jump to conclusions as to what I think and expect. You need not be harsh on her either or any other actresses for that matter who happen to accept dramas with younger co stars. It’s an option open to them and its their choice to take it. What comes after is nobody’s business.

    We don’t need a write a thesis to show theres a window period for actors. They’ll take on different roles when the time comes, some may be labelled as minor. Even with that knowledge who are we to mock (indirectly at other actresses/actors too) and question “if her role in this drama catapults her career again”. The ratings hover here arnd 11 – 12%, a figure tt must be the envy of many a ‘successful males’ and “famous young male actors in their 20s”whose recent dramas are anything but ‘successful”. Apparently even when everything deemed appropriate (well matched with costars in term of age diff, looks, youth, popularity) have not worked for them.

    Perhaps the quoted sentiment should applies here too, but conversely: By saying,‘What you personally perceive to be ‘unrealistic and offensive doesnt’ translate the same or make it ‘wrong’ for others.”.

    Atom Says:

    Love love this drama. The latest ep are so good. Chemistry between HJW and KMH are amazing even if he has less experienced. The plot is better and better. I’m very curious what will be happened between 2 man. What LSW will do for “steel” SEJ from KH ? Mb a little more action like diving? I know HJW has scuba licence .

    MissT Says:

    So good. Best k drama for moment. KMH fits well KH role and I like that he is so careful toward HJW (see BTS). I so like their unexpected first kiss nothing more nothing less just a sweet kiss a warm touch of two sad soul.
    HJW can be so funny sometime and the head nurse too ! Fighting HS ! Love all the cast!

    Rachata DK Says:

    It’s a very worthwhile drama to watch. For me, this drama is the best drama right now. The story line is very good while all cast perform very well. After watching this drama, I became a fan of Hajiwon and Minhyuk. I really like them both.

    gaby Says:

    @Rachata DK I agree with you! Best drama for now ! LOVE it ! Like HJW before but now I like her more ! For me KMH is a very pleasant surprise ! Like their chemistry so far ! Don’t skip this drama! It’s a good one!

    listya Says:


    pertama lihat iklannya kaget banget masa iya HJW akting dengan aktor baru yang jauh umurnya. Tapi semua terbantahkan, mereka HOT banget, benar benar dapat chemistry nya. Sekali lagi HJW memperlihatkan pesonanya, aktor lawan mainnya pun ikut pamor dia as actress.
    Biasanya, drama hanya menarik di awal episode, tapi ini kebalikannya. awal episode saya menganggap biasa saja, tapi plot episode berikutnya semakin bagus, keren dan menarik.

    GOOD JOB buat semua yang terlibat di drama ini.

    Jo Says:

    I didn’t think I would like this drama but am very surprised with the story lines and I like all the characters and their back stories.
    I wasn’t sure about the pairing between the leads due to their age difference but somehow the chemistry between them works and is a nice surprise.
    The scenery where they are filming is gorgeous and if ever I do travel to Korea I’ll definitely try to visit Geoje Island.

    Tt Says:

    Kang Min Hyuk is really good in this drama, acting well and doing his job. But I think many conservative folks cannot get past his age gap with Ha Ji Won, me included. I continued to watch this drama for the plot, and slowly adapted myself to that age gap. If Choi Jin Hyuk took up the male lead role, I believe this drama would have done much better in ratings. Or swap Ha Ji Won for a younger actress will work too.
