Meanwhile, Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yun Suk) became a doctor to make something of himself after growing up poor, and he seeks out VIP patients to achieve the success that he desperately wants.

    I like the story of this drama. Kim sa bu is kind hearted and open minded person. Kan dong ju never realize his mistake, he is too ambitious person and seeks VIP patient to achieve success. I hope in the future he would understand which is right which is wrong.

    Hi, I’m wondering if anyone knows in the last episode where Dr Yoon was talking to a nurse from Geosan hospital, she mentioned that the child on her phone is 5 years old. Does it mean that the child is Dr Kang Dong Joo? 🤔 Anyone knows?
