    I see Ji Sung I click. One of my favorite Korean actor. Lee Se Young is cute, too.

  4. 4 : Fado Revere Says:

    First episode is good. Focusing on female who lost confidence in herself as an anaesthesiologist and the prison inmate that helps her regain it, appears to be the plot at the start.

  5. 5 : Fado Revere Says:

    Episode 2 is even better. The drama moves out of a dreary penitentiary into a modern hospital. A connection between the female doctor and the now former inmate is established.

  6. 6 : MaxT Says:

    This drama is even better than Doctor Detective. Don’t miss out!

  12. 12 : Peanuts Says:

    Love this drama though everytime when I watch it, it brings back painful memories for me for the next few days after that. And just when I’ve recovered, the bad memories would return when I could not helped but watch the continuing episodes again. Repeating the torture for myself.

    When watching this drama I can relate to how Si-Young and Yo Han feel when faced with heartbreaking and desperate situations in their jobs and at times when helpless set in.

    My patients were not people, but were dogs. But the situations and feelings were no different from what Si-Young Yo-Han’s. My patuents were very sick and dying homeless dogs. I was a volunteer at an animal shelter. My opinion was to put them to sleep permanently in order to stop their sufferings, but my seniors wud not believe in doing so. Their decision only prolonged the dogs’ sufferings. It was heartbreaking.

    Eventually, I had to stop the volunteer work when poor health forced me to give up.

    12 episodes of this drama so far and everything was great. The plot is getting exciting and there’s a lot of secret to be revealed. The acting, plot twist (not really plot twist oh gosh idk how to explain it😂) and a little hint of romance makes me feel very excited for the next episode. Watching this drama while it is still ongoing makes me crazy 😭😭😭
