DOCTORS -- EPISODE 3
"But we were only trying to roast marshmallows!"
Seo Woo blames Hye Jung for the fire, claiming she was trying to kill her. She goes to prison, but is released when Soon Hee takes the blame over our heroine's protests. Grandma dies on the operating table, and it incenses Hye Jung that her family is so cavalier about it. So now she has no place to live, no school to attend, and no friends. We fast forward 13 years, and learn more about the dynamics at the hospital...
Seo Woo is at the same hospital as the doctor. I knew from the press surrounding this show that she would be. I just wasn't sure how it was going to go. You can't possibly pull the same stunts that you did in high school, right? Right?
Ji Hong finds out how much his psychic hotline addiction costs...
The devil-may-care attitude of Hye Jung's family is...well... different. She breaks down in tears, but no one else seems particularly affected by Grandma's death, not even the surgeon who lost her. This has to serve some kind of purpose because I've rarely seen more than one person in a drama be so callous. Maybe it shows how she was so done with her family.
How did she get to the hospital? We don't know yet, but I presume they're going to tell us. The time shifts are an interesting plot device -- and risky. You do it wrong and you end up confusing your audience. So far they're not too jarring.
He must be trying to jog his memory
With every episode, I get more and more sucked in. It's too early to dub it best drama of 2016, but it's certainly the best I've seen so far (I haven't yet seen 'Descendants of the Sun,' so a judgement is definitely premature).
