DOCTORS -- EPISODE 4
♫ I'm a little teapot, short and stout...♫
Now that Hye Jung is a doctor at Guk Il Medical Center, her life is never dull. She angers her sunbae, meets up with her old teacher (now a successful neurosurgeon like her), and Seo Woo tries to have her removed. Not to mention the surgeries she performs. Meanwhile, the admins that want control of the hospital propose a for-profit venture that the President shoots down.
Seo Woo is still making trouble, though I figured she would be. What I didn't figure on was that she'd be so bad at it. She was so deliciously evil in the previous episodes I was thinking this would go worse than it did. But her best shot this episode is "kick her out because she went to a third-rate school." Um, if she's working there someone obviously saw something they liked, and it's not likely to be that easy. Ah well, we have several more episodes to go.
I know I keep saying "It's not what it looks like," but I think in this case it is totally what it looks like.
The Chief Surgeon impresses me -- a lot. He seems very even-handed, despite the fact that two of his staff have had temper tantrums about Hye Jung. And even the two skeevy, greedy admins don't have him in their crosshairs yet. Maybe they won't. He seems inscrutable. I'm hoping nothing bad happens to him.
The reappearance of Ji Hong is amusing. And he's still the same: charming and cocky. And he also had little to do with where Hye Jung is now, so what's he doing there? Maybe history will repeat itself, and Seo Woo will get jealous and try bring them both down? That sounds fun! Let's hope.
"Do you want to see my doggie impression?"
I'm just loving this. Is there any better reason to wake up knowing that in the evening you're going to watch a cool show? Well, yes. But it's a nice bonus. Hye Jung just seems like a great character. We just don't know how she went from low to high just yet. Drama, action, the only thing it's missing is romance, but I'm sure that's not far off.
