  1. Hello again everyone! @40somethingahjumma I think he's talking about the maggot scene. As he's going through the script, I recognise the dialogue and scenes from Episode 1/2. Around 8:55 min, he starts repeating the lines (not translated) about "the only thing a doctor can say for sure is that they will do their best" which is what he says to Gyeo-wool in Episode 2... Then the lines skip around and he starts talking about different parts of the script (e.g. Min-yong's situation in Episode 1 and how he should tell off Gyeo-wool 'lightly'). Later around 9:38 he asks "Is he going to the ER because something happened or because he is curious about how Gyeo-wool will act in this situation" (your confusion is understandable, in my view 'condition' isn't a good translation and there's no other reference to the anaphylaxis event) Hope that makes sense!
  2. Yeah nothing says romance like asking someone to help you carry a box of camping supplies to your office Isn’t it lovely how SH lets IJ do a lot for her too, but rather than quick chores she actually spends time with him e.g.: - letting him stay by her side while she waited for potentially life changing results - letting him drive her home when it was raining - waiting for him to make her favourite breakfast I agree there are few things that SH needs from anyone but I love how IJ supports her in the background while respecting her independence e.g.: - IJ picks up SH’s handbag when she leaves her belongings behind - IJ is the first to visit her in Seokcho and respects her choice to move away Most of all: - IJ makes her laugh and she loves his sense of humour - IJ makes her blush and confused in a way no one else does on the show - IJ includes her into his family and she loves them in return Anyone else rooting for these two in Season 2 since Wintergarden is now confirmed ?
  3. @40somethingahjumma Great point (as always)! It reminds me of a scene in episode 2 after Songhwa’s school friend with breast cancer is visited by her husband. SH watches them closely and Seong min says ‘are you envious? You should date too’. SH cuts him off by firmly stating ‘no, I don’t want to. I like being single’. Totally agree that SH’s focus, identify and passion are derived from her work. i believe she genuinely means it when she says she wants to be alone (ie it’s not a defensive deflection to change the topic). SH is determined and driven when she wants something - if she truly wanted to a partner or family, she would have pursued it ardently. SH doesn’t settle for a substandard situation or is clueless about her feelings - she’s very attuned to what she wants. That’s why it makes no sense that she’s passively in love with Jeongwon, a close friend for 20 years and sits around ignoring her ‘love’ while he’s single and available - it doesn’t fit with her ‘go getter’ character in any way. I absolutely love these other theories though, at first I was confused but now they give me a good laugh
  4. Seokhyeong also keeps his desk and car clean so let’s get ready for Flower Bear Garden in season 2! Other hidden lovelines: - Jongwon and Junwan use hand sanitiser before meeting patients - the hygienic couple - Gyeowool, Iksun and Junwan love eating the same brand of chocolates - the snow pigeon throuple - Dr Bong, Gyeowool and Minha drink coffee together during breaks - Bong sister wives (btw this is just a light hearted post - it’s only a drama guys )
  5. Don’t leave out the part where IJ starts singing ‘I knew I’d love you‘ . SH can’t take her eyes off IJ as he sings. JW passes out but SH doesn’t even notice - her gaze remains fixed on IJ. As IJ continues singing, the camera shoots them on opposite sides while SH continues wistfully watching him (JW out of the picture). Pretty callous of SH to ignore her ‘true love’ passing out like that while staring at another guy...
  6. Did you notice how in sync SH/JW were as he was thinking of Gyeo-wool - the first person he wanted to tell about his plans to stay? SH read his mind and broke out into a knowing smile, mentioning the word “gyeo-wool” three times to tease her psychic partner. Totally agree they’re locked in around JW’s love life with GW
  7. Sorry if I poorly worded my comment but i think you misunderstood - I don’t remember saying anything about being bothered by hospital politics or overtime or research for journals. Also FYI - in your second last paragraph you said Jeong Won twice but I think you meant Jun Wan (the heart surgeon). The title of this show in Korean is ‘the life of wise doctors’ so obviously we are talking about the cream of the crop. I love seeing people at the top of their fields, I just can’t relate to them because they are so excellent and they never seem to have any professional failings or issues - almost superhuman medical professionals. I have dr friends and family and no one is that noble/altruistic or ‘on their game’ with amazing stamina despite years of experience. Maybe I need to meet more doctors hehe While I love these main characters, I can relate more to the residents who make mistakes/learn. Anyway it was my one small gripe about a show I absolutely love and I meant no disrespect to the community. I won’t be commenting again!
  8. My translation isn’t perfect but I will have a go. At the beginning as she’s filming the lunch cafeteria scene, the director tells her to do the “extremely cold version“ with IJ who then laughs because he’s not ready with the serving spoon Shin Hyun Bin (SHB) introduces herself as: “I am Shin Hyun Bin playing the role of Jang Gyeo Wool” (JGW) JGW introduces herself as: “I am JGW, a third year GS surgery resident” The first question is ‘what do you think will happen to the one sided love for Ahn Jeong Won’ SHB says she is very curious and looks forward to finding out information on a daily basis. She hopes it ends well. JGW says ‘it’s not true. Did Professor IJ say that? It’s not that...it’s just...’ Not 100% sure on the second question but it’s something like ‘if you could choose another resident to join your team who would it be’ and Seok Hyung (YSH) chooses JGW (IJ says no way) SHB says (surprised) ‘thanks so much to YSH professor. Given there are a lot of residents in his team, I will continue to work hard in GS’ JGW says ‘Why did he say that, I have no idea’ There’s another question but I’ve run out of time. Anyway hope this helps!
  9. I’m a big Dr Jang fan here and I agree with you. I feel like she has more potential to develop as a stand-alone character. I love that maggot scene because it was so unexpected. She appeared indifferent, cold and blunt to the mother, but when it came to the homeless guy she showed her dedication through her actions (similar to JW). Dr Jang’s bedside manner needs improvement but she goes above and beyond for her patients (pulling maggots out with her hands, chasing the abusive dad, running with the liver). I love watching scenes highlighting her quirky behaviour, cold logic and social awkwardness (without malice), especially compared to more outgoing characters. I ship the winter garden couple but I noticed IJ was the one who gave her the warmest encouragement when she safely delivered the liver. IJ is such a charming, capable and kind superior - I wonder if he could potentially be a better match if things don’t work out with SH. I love the five central characters but does anyone else feel that sometimes they set the bar unrealistically high - they never seem to make professional mistakes, they pull off ridiculous surgery miracles, they show superhuman empathy for all patients and they never have any ethical dilemmas (no temptation for any bribery or misconduct). It’s really refreshing to watch the resident storylines in contrast. Anyway can’t wait for Thursday!
  10. I’m also a GW/Dr Maggot fan! There’s something really refreshing about her - she doesn’t care about her appearance, she’s honest with her feelings and she doesn’t try to be something she’s not. She’s pining over JW but she’s so far refrained from dolling up or feigning interests to get closer to him. Even when she made blunt comments about Minha’s makeup, you could see it was coming from a good place. She has a naivety about her which is also sweet (eg her hopefulness about the text message and her subsequent disappointment). She looks really inexperienced about love and is desperate for reciprocation but she has no idea what she’s doing. Do I think JW likes her back? I don’t see active dislike or apathy. He was very upset when he thought she was having an affair with IJ in ep3 even going to the effort of searching for them to voice his objections. When Dr Bong in ep2 asked Dr Bae to call Gyeo-wool to the homeless maggot-ingested guy, JW’s interest was piqued when he heard her name and he followed Dr Bong to the emergency room. There was a close up of GW from JW’s perspective as she was pulling out maggots which stood out to me. Let’s not forget during the cookie scene in ep4 he gave her side glances at least three times before subtlety passing her snacks (he didn’t look at the obgyn resident or the interns this way). I think JW looked concerned when Dr Bae mentioned that the child abuser dad might have a knife and when IJ mentioned her emergency allergic reaction. Also did anyone else notice in ep6 after GW assured JW that she explained Ji-ah’s condition to her parents in detail, he said “go seng hess o yeo” which translates to ‘you tried hard’ - probably the nicest thing he has said to her on camera other than the text message which he would never have sent if there was dislike. Given his inexperience with women and his desire to be a priest, i think it will take him a long time to realise his feelings, be comfortable with having them and then act. Hopefully IJ will play Cupid to speed this up! Hope I didn’t ramble too much but I love the discussion in this forum and I wanted to contribute!
  11. Hi everyone - I’m new to this thread... I believe JW’s reaction to IJ and GY stemmed from his moral outrage at a married man seemingly having an affair. JW wouldn’t egg him on if IJ was chasing after a resident he got along with better. In ep 2 when Dr Bong got a call about the maggot guy, JW followed him to the emergency room to check out the situation after hearing GW’s name. JW didn’t need to be there when GW removed the maggots while Dr Bae was visibly squeamish in front of the patient. I interpreted that he was quietly impressed and perhaps saw her in a new light. I think Dr Jang is an interesting character. Even Dr Bae acknowledged it took guts to chase after that abusive dad and it is definitely not her job as a surgeon to do that. I think it’s only human that GW was disappointed that JW didn’t acknowledge her, it doesn’t necessarily mean she lacks a moral compass. I agree with Day, GW shouldn’t change too much. She represents a good contrast to JW. He is overly invested/emotional at times which is noble but leaves him at risk of burning out and threatening to quit every year. She seems to show resilience and is responsive to criticism. I’ve met doctors like Dr Jang who are clinical, scientific and hard working. I’m sure she can improve her patient manner and technical skills but she’s still training. Anyway, I’m shipping the two characters but I was disappointed with episode 5. Hope episode 6 is better!!
