  12. 12 : mystisith Says:

    I watched the first 2 episodes and liked it. Nice balance of serious/funny. Medical wise it’s interesting. I don’t like the face of the lead actress but if she acts fine I will bear with it.

  13. 13 : Micc Says:

    Why why why another medical drama?!!! And this one is so real in the surgery scenes! Yikes! Good drama so far nevertheless!

  14. 14 : Micc Says:

    Four episodes in….wonderful casts, everybody is doing a great job. Very addicting. Hope the storyline match up with the casts going forward.

    Hwaiting! ^_^

  17. 17 : Mystisith Says:

    2 episodes subbed at dramacrazy. But I like it so much than I watched all the rest raw. I really love the mix of serious and funny. The actors and actresses are all good. Of all the dramas airing these days, I realize it’s the one I’m waiting impatiently each week. (With Vampire Prosecutor of course. 🙂 )

  18. 18 : jo Says:

    good n interesting drama …….

  19. 19 : jaykwon Says:

    very good episodes considering and a nice plot , great actors good story wow..

  20. 20 : KDaddict Says:

    TQ for your answer. I like the 2 actors and Soo Young. I was going to start this, but found out who the lead actress was–she scared me in Thorn birds. 🙁
    Hope u enjoy it!

  21. 21 : kimchilee Says:

    ya..I was going to watch this drama till i found out the lead actress from Thorn Birds.. it shoud have been the other girl instead. what a big waste.. the pairing is so important in every drama i guess. Such a pity.. i have been waiting for Oh Ji Ho’s drama in like the longest time and only to come to this.. but still, i’ll give it a try.. will close my eyes when the lead actress comes on..hehe!

    the other actress i dislike is Lee Yo Won.. currently in Horse doctor. her dead pan face always puts me off. Saw her in bad love is enough to give any drama with her a miss. Sorry fans of Lee Yo Won.. just my opinion of her.

  22. 22 : Virtue Says:

    Kimchi lee: but this drama is real good though despite the fact that the lead actress is a bit hard to tolerate but the second lead actress acts real good though. She is new but I like her just instantly from her first appearance at the third episode.

  23. 23 : Kel Says:

    One of the best drama. Seriously this is such a good plot and storyline. It brings laughter excitement and sadness. One of my best drama of the year! Must watch!

  24. 24 : Lania Tania Says:

    ini drama yang bagus untuk ditonton 😀

  25. 25 : Poohs Says:

    good drama and actors

  26. 26 : Daisy Says:

    Love Oh Ji Ho as the kind hearted and gentle eastern medicine doctor! And, Sooyoung is such a great delight to look at – she always lit up the scenes with her sweet and beautiful smiles, freshness and cheekyness.

  27. 27 : Poohs Says:

    I hope Hye In will end up with Seung Hyun. They look good as a pair. Hope the DVD for this drama wld be in Asia soon.

  28. 28 : Micc Says:

    Among all dramas I am watching right now, this one is probably the most funny and most comfortable to watch, at least so far so good.

  29. 29 : jangerr Says:

    One of my favourite dramas at the moment. The mix of modern and traditional medicine gives this drama a refreshing perspective. I like how it’s able to balance the seriousness of the subject matter with lighter and fun moments. If feels meaty yet not weighty.

    The cast is excellent too. It’s really good to see OJH again. It’s been a while since his last drama. He’s breathed life into his character and it feels like he’s SH and SH is him. It doesn’t feel like he’s acting.

    As usual KSW doesn’t let us down either. His role as the brilliant yet aloof neurosurgeon is right up his alley.

    But the person who caught me by surprise is KMJ. Like some of the other commenters here, I’ve not really liked her. And her role in Thorn Birds really put the nail on the coffin! So it was with much hesitation that I started watching this drama. And now, I adore her! It’s so much fun to watch her. She’s smart yet has a certain naivety about her. She’s not too pretty yet it doesn’t bother her a teeny weeny bit. She’s a junior doctor but it doesn’t stop her from speaking up against the senior doctors if necessary. She’s a modern medicine doctor yet she believes in traditonal medicine. There’s just so much to her.

  30. 30 : meldz Says:

    nice drama.. funny and education.

    Congrats to all the people behind it.

  31. 31 : N1njA Says:

    Nice Grammar @meldz – Funny and Education – LMFAO

  32. 32 : meldz Says:

    what i mean is funny and educational… it’s just a topographical error…..
    don’t concern yourself too much on the grammar of the commenter (one who makes or writes comments; a commentator; an annotator). just focus on the drama.

  33. 33 : Lorem Says:

    I wonder how accurate to real life is the depiction of the contentious posturing western medicine has towards eastern medicine in this drama? I know in some fields of science there have developed a worldview or a belief system that has its fair share of zealots, some almost militant eg: neo-darwinian. And of course where ever money is involved — drug companies, research grants, teaching tenures — often, objectivity and moral integrity are cast out.

    I can see the writer is heading towards reconciling these two fields of medicine, and that for me is the intrigue of this drama.

  34. 34 : nat nat Says:

    Hi Micc, can you tell me where to find this drama? I can’t find it, but I really want to see Oj Ji Ho’s new drama. ^^

  35. 35 : NextDoor Says:

    LOL. so funny. i thought it will be just like any other medical drama. i like the kim min jung in her character there because she is ordinary looking and her humor is not corny at all- not the usual gorgeous leading lady. oh ji ho is soooooooo ruggedly handsome. yummy!

    watch this drama! highly recommended.

  36. 36 : jahaleel Says:

    i hope Hye In will end up with BigBro bec. DooHyun has more chemistry with her than with SeungHun. i hope in the end they will get married and her father will walk her down the aisle

  37. 37 : fanofsooyoung Says:

    wow,, can’t wait for the next episode, i don’t want to end the drama,,,its so addictive and i love sooyoung here, i love her acting very good,,,i cried every time i watch the ep.13 & 14. hope to see her in other drama i know it would be great….

  38. 38 : Micc Says:

    @ nat nat

    You can try dramastyle.com and search for third hospital or third ward. Hope this helps.

  39. 39 : Micc Says:


    I agreed with you. Hope she ended up with big bro.

  40. 40 : jahaleel Says:


    hi. YES!!! somebody is cheering for DooHyun with me. hehehe 😀
    i feel lonely because everybody seem to choose SeungHyun for HyeIn. it will really be a sad life for BigBro if that will happen. all he had is his talent as a surgeon and his love for her. he is good even though he may be a jerk sometimes. i couldnt stand the wait to know who will end up with HyeIn. im crossing my fingers and my eyes now 🙂

  41. 41 : Micc Says:


    Let’s cross our fingers together! 😀
    Another five episodes, hope to see the turning point!

  42. 42 : Prinna Says:

    I like this drama involve western and eastern medicine. OJH should be the main actor because he is good looking, charming as always. Hopefully the western doctors are more open to different methods of treating cancer patient. In USA, the way they treat brain tumor is always operation and chemo, the patient end up dead. I believe that you use the technology to double what is the problem and use the alternative medicine to cure. I do know a chinese doctor that cure cancer patient using one kind special tree bark but not many people know about it. I do know someone that was told to take chemo for a year. She cannot take it after 2 chemo treatment and decide not to do it and use alternative medicine. She think that she will be dead after 1 year anyway. She might as well feel good and be dead but she continue to live until present. Eat healthy and eating something instant noodle which korean people eat a lots in the drama.

  43. 43 : ckhcsy Says:

    ohhh i’m praying that doohyun will be ended up with hyein…please no Hyein-Seunghyun!!!!pleasee!!!!!!! i ship Euijin-Seunghyun…please make those two happy,writer-nim!!~~~

  44. 44 : meldz Says:


  45. 45 : jahaleel Says:

    @ ckhcsy -43

    yes!!! more cheering for DooHyun and HyeIn couple!!! me too 🙂 hehehe

  46. 46 : parshinhye_fan. Says:

    SOOYOUNG , SOOYOUNG can’t acting, she’s suck, because of her this drama be so boring with her.

    —>>> park shin hye is better that soooyung.

  47. 47 : Mystisith Says:

    #46:Stupid and insulting comment. Even me who hate idols in dramas and freaking don’t care about Kpop, acknowledge the acting skills of SooYoung: She blew me!
    Park Shin Hye has been cast in Flower Boy Next Door with Yoon Shi-yoon: It’s a good deal for her so chill please.

  48. 48 : eve Says:

    Kim Seung Woo…. just because of you, I’m watching this drama…., really just because of you 😀

  49. 49 : eve Says:

    I already watch ep 19, it’s too sad for me, Do hyun just fired because he protect his love, but his love (dr.jin) doesn’t have good response,…
    im so disappointed with this drama becouse do hyun just alone….

  50. 50 : Aga Says:

    After watch ep19, I feel dr.jin like do hyun because do hyun protect her.
    Last ep, maybe she and do hyun loving each other. Left seung hyun alone.

  51. 51 : eve Says:

    yeah…im not disappointed now, after watch ep 20, i get the green light, finally they can share their love (do hyun and hye in)…. :D, GOOD DRAMA GOOD DRAMA 😀

  52. 52 : NextDoor Says:

    i luv the ending!!! im fully satisfied. this is a good drama to watch 🙂

  53. 53 : Micc Says:

    Not the traditionally big happy ending, but it’s the best I’ve ever seen! Nicely arranged and nicely done! Even this drama has 20 episodes, there is no dragging, everything flows nicely. Definitely two thumbs up!

  54. 54 : Poohs Says:

    not happy with the ending, very abrupt. Overrall it is a good drama but ending should have been better.

  55. 55 : WINRI Says:

    Sooyoung Eonnie, Act Well.

  56. 56 : Xenira Says:

    Loved everything about this drama except from the end. I was so hoping for Doo hyun and Hye in to actually show affection especially doo hyun but they just stood there ._. i know it’s supposed to end on a cliff hanger of there new life together but a little disappointed:'(
