Korean Drama Review DS

Doctor Stranger (2014) 异乡人医生

Genre: Melodrama, Medical, Action, Thriller, Politics

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10  No. of times I watched it: 1

doctor-stranger

starring Lee Jong Suk as Park Hoon – Goo Seung Hyun as Park Hoon (child) and Jin Se Yun as Song Jae Hee / Han Seung Hee. Other casts: Park Hae Jin as Han Jae Joon and Kang So Ra as Oh Soo Hyun.

I feel sad that Hoon’s father has to be sacrificed and his mother became mentally unwell. I think it was bad experience for Hoon when he has to cut up real life people to practise and become an accomplished doctor. The North is involved. I did not like it when the North and Premier Jang keeps interfering and trying to kill or separate the couple. They separated at the start and Jae Hee appeared again after Hoon gets a job as a doctor at Myungwoo University Hospital. Politics is involved as Hoon and Jae Joon compete to operate on the President’s heart.

Although some people are supportive of Soo Hyun and Hoon, I still prefer the couple that starts the story. Anyway, Soo Hyun already has Jae Joon to match with. I like what Hoon said “Doctors should be good at healing people while cops should be good at catching people.” It is difficult to decide if they should save the person that may endanger their lives but doctors should still follow their principle and treat each patient equally.

It was quite funny when Hoon 1st goes to the hospital. There are many lines with different colours on the floor of the hospital and patients are told to follow the lines. Hoon accompanied a patient and her father as a water delivery boy and they went round and round the hospital in search for the room. On a side note, I would not want to be patients of this hospital where patients are used for competitions and are not treated seriously by the hospital director. Haha.
