DOCTORS -- EPISODE 12



Karaoke in the middle of the street is a bad idea

Hye Jung is concerned by Ji Hong's silence, both while he was in the states and after he returns. Chairman Jin ascends to the top position in the hospital, replacing President Hong (since he's dead). Ji Hong feels the first stirrings of the new political atmosphere as confrontations happen over his investigation into Grandma's death. Hye Jung and Ji Hong talk and end up back together. Eventually our couple figures out about the abusive "husband," but he flees the hospital, later coming back to kill her. At the end of the day, Hye Jung and Ji Hong are hand in hand walking home...

Ji Hong's silence worried me too. They just barely acknowledged each other and went about their duties. They were cold, distant, and we have more than a few episodes left where they could keep this up. Honestly, I'm glad they're back together. Part of the fun is watching those two interact, and stony silence is not fun.


When playing hide and go seek, it's best not to hide behind the seeker.

Abused patient Soo Jin took front and center this episode. They spent a lot of time on her recovery and how she shut out her attacker. It was often difficult to tell whether she was faking in order to throw off her abuser or if she really was that far gone. The tests the docs ran seemed to indicate her progress was normal. Regardless, she seems to be safe, and that's a good thing. I wonder if we'll continue to see her next episode.

The politics have taken a nasty turn, and it's probably up to Ji Hong to shut these guys down. They advanced their plans while he was in the states dealing with his dad's death. What I don't know is how far they went and what kind of evidence Ji Hong got hold of among his father's papers. I'm fairly sure that his dad intended Ji Hong to succeed him, so installing another chairman has to sting.


"Ooh! The new D.Holic album!"

I'm still here, on the edge of my seat half the time. They know what keeps me coming back and I return weekly. The chemistry is good and the pace is fast where it needs to be. This is a pretty high quality drama,  so I have a difficult time imagining it getting much better than it already is.

    Allkpop, how can you not talk about that kiss? Seriously, it was the turning point to their relationship and getting back together (not to mention the major jump that it was from their "lackluster" first kiss). And the build-up to that---the tension, the hesitation, and finally the decision to just go for it---was just right. :)

    Dr Hong Ji Hong is getting more attractive as the drama progresses lol. Kim Rae Won really exudes the aura of a real surgeon/doctor. Can't stop smiling when Park Shin Hye hides shyly behind his back during the backhug. Their chemistry is good
