DOCTORS -- EPISODE 10



I don't always drink tea, but when I do, I grin evilly.

There's trouble in paradise as Seo Woo reports Hye Jung's new car as a bribe, resulting in a disciplinary hearing. Meanwhile, Hye Jung turns down Yoon Do. Later, the surgeons successfully remove the tumor from President Hong. Both Ji Hong and Hye Jung separately harass the man who wrote the surgery notes, and our heroine gets upset with Ji Hong's interference. Kang Soo uploads the latest installment of his webtoon and fans are eating it up. Hye Jung effectively breaks up with Ji Hong...

Seo Woo has finally started taking her revenge against Hye Jung.  She was unable to return the car she got as a gift because he didn't leave valid contact info. She does have people pulling for her, so she may wriggle her way out of this yet. The primary danger she poses is that she's the director's daughter. She can use his name to pull people's fat out of the fire or throw them to the wolves, both at her whim.


I will now attempt to perform the Vulcan mind meld...

The split between Hye Jung and Ji Hong was awfully quick and convenient.  I may be jumping the gun here, but that looked like a breakup to me. It also was over something so little. How hard is it to say, "Don't do it again?" He agrees, love goes on.  The timing is suspicious, too, since this was the episode where Yoon Do confesses. I can't really see her with Yoon Do, but I can see him using the opportunity to hit on her.

The plot against President Hong is proceeding.  The director even suggested sabotaging the surgery, though his co-conspirator put the brakes on that plan quickly. The slush fund was probably the last straw for Hong, and Hong was hoping they'd do the honorable thing and step down themselves. What I worry about is that he's recuperating, and subsequently very vulnerable. The director already suggested similar; I can totally see him going that route.


Losing the bet, Kang Soo now has to sing Sistar tunes all day while on shift.

I think it's cool that Kang Soo has a webtoon. What's even better is it seems to be based around events at the hospital. Appropriate, since that's how this show got started. What I think would be really fun is if he started to dream up things that were part of the conspiracy against President Hong, or Hye Jung's dilemma, etc., putting the minor characters in a position to help.

This episode was slower and not as tightly plotted as I like. True, they used the dramatic music, trying to make things more exciting than they were, but the actions were less visceral and more drawn out. Consequences weren't as in your face. I understand they need to move the plot forward, but it didn't seem like so much moving the plot forward as stalling. Hye Jung is unflappable as things fall down, Seo Woo is icy, and Ji Hong seems in good spirits. The most animated characters are Kang Soo and Nurse Hyeon, feeling anxious about the car.

Still, this is one of the best dramas I'm watching right now. And I'm waiting anxiously for next week.

    I didn't think the director wanted to sabotage the surgery.  He was just talking out loud that he wished something would go wrong with the surgery, so his father told him to shut it.

    It was just spur of the moment statement. It was thoughtless of him to say that, but he was angry. Thankfully, his father shut him up.

    Did not feel it was slow, though. *shrugs* As the episode was kind of laying the foundation of what conflicts/wars are about to come between the characters, the writer does not leave many plot holes everything has a purpose so I really appreciate the details in the drama. I like how everything is being expose and how all the characters and conflicts are being cover. I like how naturally everything is flowing, but I do think watching this drama would have been better seen in one go/ all at once.

    I think you missed the whole point why Ji Hong and Hye Jung had that argument in the end, really shows your maturity level. You can not have a healthy relationship if both do not communicate with each other, Ji Hong has not been meeting Hye Jung in the middle when it comes to them having an actual relationship between a man and a woman. There is a huge difference in Ji Hong being her teacher or mentor and him being her lover. Hye Jung does not want to enter a relationship where she is giving her all and her partner is not and not meeting her half way, that just does not go away with "Don't do it again?" both have to put tons of effort and decisions and changes really have to be made.
