Medical Drama

Plot:
Mahigashu Teru seems like a clumsy doctor from the outside, but his devotion and dedication to his patients is second to none. Many years ago, Teru’s father, a reknown surgeon known for his Godlike surgical operations, died after saving Teru in the aftermath of an airplane accident. It seemed that his father’s Godlike abilities were passed on to Teru during the accident. Whenever a patient around Teru is in critical condition, he is suddenly taken over by his Godhand and saves the patient, no matter how difficult the operation is.

When Teru first arrives at the hospital, the other doctors scorn his clumsiness and look down upon him, but over time, they come to acknowledge his Godlike skill and also his dedication as a doctor to every patient. One of these other doctors is Shinomiya Kozue, the daughter of the Shieikai group, an extremely powerful medical family. Her true goal was to find the perfect art form of surgery, but little does she know that Teru’s attitude toward his patients slowly rubs off on her.

What will happen when an old doctor from the hospital director, Junji’s, past comes back and begin to destroy the hospital? What if Shinomiya Kozue’s brother was also involved? Will Kozue become a true doctor? Will Teru finally experience the first death of a patient in his time as a doctor intern?

Review:
Sorry everyone for the bad summary, but you do get the gist of the drama. I have to say I haven’t loved a medical drama so much since Surgeon Bong Dal Hee. The scenes of the doctors in surgery do have little variation, however, the director really knows how to create that operating room tension.

All the actors and actresses did a really great job in this drama. I can’t really rate their individual performances since they all seemed to meld together into one great production. I am really sad that they only decided to make this a six episode series. I would not have minded watching 5 more and seeing Shinomiya Kozue finally get together with Dr. Teru. I really like the idea behind the story. I have not read the manga but I really think that the drama would do well to end at the point where Teru no longer needs his Godhand but instead becomes the Godhand. I loved all the different cases that Teru experienced. Although the hospital buyout and all the stuff about doctors working for money only was a bit exaggerated, I think it really helped build the tension in the drama.

Shinomiya Kozue

I think Mizukawa Asami is a beautiful actress. Even though this drama didn’t really giver her a chance to really stretch any acting abilities, I think she did alright for her character. The actor playing Teru really fit the role. Great choice.
