Cho said that his character started off as a villain who kowtows to the powerful and tramples on the weak. "But he comes away with something he learns from the hospital, learns his lesson and sees a change taking place inside him."

   He continued, "He's not a entirely evil person. (At the end) he does everything he can do in his power to save the hospital and his business group at the same time."

Lol! So he basically starts off as a capitalist and ends up as a socialist! :D . Thanks for the articles. Like that the characters are layered . A little grey , my cup of tea ....

Bee, isn’t the guy on the left Do San in About Time ? We get to see him here !

Not quite a socialist.  Maybe a Liberitarian? Haha  Goo Seung-hyo has a hard job of pleasing everyone - shareholders, patients, doctors, staff.  Takes money to operate the hospital. Healthcare is expensive.  We demand the best care yet no patient is capable or willing to pay the true cost.  Who will pick up the check?  How much responsibilities do we demand of our society and government when we can't extend the same care toward others around us?  When is it become too much of an expectation, a right rather than a shared cost?

 

Yeah, writer-nim keeps her streak of grey characters going.  From the character synopsis, I'm guessing we are involved in some sort of organ transplant scandal.  Trauma, surgeons, pediatrics, ER, ethics committee member...  I didn't realize the drama has 2 good PDs on board known for delivering relatable heartfelt stories.  Maybe they will manage time better with two people.  No ego clash please.

 

PD Hong Jong-chan of Dear My Friends  and PD Im Hyun-wook who’s worked on Awl and This Week My Wife Will Have an Affair (from Dramabeans).  

 

Good catch, that's Jung Moon Sung, he's a CEO of sort? LOL . I'm wondering if CSW will PPL mens wear.  He looks great in suits.

 

@annagriss8 thanks for letting me know about 8/7/18.  I called US Netflix.  They don't have Life in their content yet.  Rep said they usually add movie/drama into the content list about 1-2 weeks prior to release date.  They also send out notifications based on your watch preferences.  I am thinking it's Netflix Asia that has Life released on Aug 7, will be different for everyone else based on where you are. Yay for subs finally.

 

Soooo we may have to be slightly cautious when posting here or use spoiler tags for videos/IG/photos and anything that could spoil the drama.  Either that or avoid this thread together. It's hard for me since simply browsing for the drama brings up all sorts of things.  How not to ruin medical thrillers even for yourself is what I am thinking :lol:

HA DONG KYUNG – HOME (LIFE OST PART 1)

 

Drive me home of my own
before the break of dawn
Used to be a little dreamer
kept running rain or shine
After all those thousand rainbows
now I’m knocking on the door
Can someone will be there for me

Spoiler

 

All the joys all the sorrows
not a thing behind the door
You keep me warm like the fire
just place me in your arms
After all your thousand kisses
now I know that you’re my home
You left the door wide open while I’m gone


Before I know what I know
thought that I’m made out of gold
Was young and wild dare to face end of December
and there’s no one by my side
All alone when I’m down
Before the dawn bring me back to my home


Drive me home of my own
Just before the break of dawn
Used to be a little dreamer
kept running rain or shine
After all those thousand rainbows
now I’m knocking on the door
I need the door wide open while I’m gone


Before I walk on this road
heard the stories from my old
What to smile and what to cry what to remember
You can’t define what’s wrong and right
Believe yourself, it’s fine
Don’t you know, there is always your home


I look up to the sky and reach the stars
The moon is shining on my soul
And all of my dreams all that I wish
Doesn’t mean a thing on my own
Take me home
The place I can hide


Oh I know yes I know
Was just blind and fool so long
Now I smile and now I cry and I remember
Everyday and every night
There was your candle light
Now I know, you’re the home of my own


Drive me home of my own
Just before the break of dawn
Used to be a little dreamer
kept running rain or shine
After all those thousand rainbows
now I’m knocking on the door
I need the door wide open while I’m gone

New star-studded TV series to expose capitalist logic weighing on medical industry

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/culturesports/2018/07/23/0701000000AEN20180723009600315.html

 

Spoiler

SEOUL, July 23 (Yonhap) -- A new TV series starring two heartthrobs will kick off its eight-week run on Monday to expose the reality of the medical service sector coming being driven by the capitalist logic of profit making.

The investigative drama "Life" starts with the arrival of Koo Seung-hyo, played by Cho Seung-woo, as the new head of a top-level university hospital.

As a loyal employee and young executive at the business conglomerate Hwajeong, which took over the loss-making hospital, Seung-hyo seeks to reform the institution and clashes with the director of the hospital's emergency medical center, Ye Jin-woo, played by Lee Dong-wook.

Jin-woo, a faithful doctor who puts the value of human life above anything else, fights Seung-hyo's business-minded management style quietly but consistently.

"Jin-woo is a common doctor who strives to achieve the ultimate goal of saving people's lives. A series of episodes he sees happening around him bring in a change in Jin-woo's mind and make him decide to act to save the hospital," Lee said in a press conference promoting the TV series from cable channel JTBC.

 

Cho said that his character started off as a villain who kowtows to the powerful and tramples on the weak. "But he comes away with something he learns from the hospital, learns his lesson and sees a change taking place inside him."

   He continued, "He's not a entirely evil person. (At the end) he does everything he can do in his power to save the hospital and his business group at the same time."

   Moon So-ri, who plays the hot-tempered director of the hospital's neurosurgery center, Oh Se-hwa, said that the message from the series may be applicable to not only the medical service sector but the education field or other areas where capitalist logic clashes with traditional values.

"It is a work that raises the question of how we can raise our immunity (to capitalist logic) and what values we have to hold onto," Moon said.

The scenario was written by Lee Soo-yeon, whose 2017 TV series with tvN, "Stranger," drew solid critical acclaim and won her the best TV scenario award for the 2018 Baeksang Arts Awards.

It's Cho's second collaboration with the star scenario writer, having starred in "Stranger." Two more actors, including Yoo Jae-myung, appear in the new TV series, having previously worked on the 2017 series.

"At first, I felt burdened by working once more with writer Lee Soo-yeon. Her work is something that gives me a headache to interpret and act on. I was anxious, asking myself if I could make it," Cho said, adding that he made the right choice in the end.

For Lee, it was out of his wish to shatter the image of a sad lover that he established in the sensationally successful tvN fantasy series "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God," which ran from late 2016 to early 2017.

"I chose this work as I was looking for a role that was opposite to (what I did then) and that could change my image entirely," Lee said.

"Having played a messenger from the underworld in the fantasy, I was attracted to this very realistic story," he said.

Producer Hong Jong-chan hinted at a turning of the tide in the story and the opposing characters of the two main male actors: "Seung-hyo harbors innocence behind his hard-headed image, while Jin-woo seems to be sharpening a sword (for revenge) deep inside him that his more terrifying than that of Seung-hyo."

   Starting Monday, the 16 episode-series with will be broadcast every Monday and Tuesday. Currently, the actors and actresses are filming the 13th and 14th episodes, according to the channel.

I've started watching ep 1 with subs in my mother tongue, and so here's an interesting point I observed from the show (note, spoilers ahead):

 

Spoiler

Lee Kyu Hyung is acting as a disabled person who is wheel-chair bound. However, there were several scenes where he just appeared with Lee Dong Wook's character, as LDW was working in the hospital. It seems like he's Lee Dong Wook's brother or roommate, seeing that they live together in the same apartment and have a photo from childhood displayed. 

 

My current conclusion is that LDW has some kind of schizophrenia disorder where he can see Lee Kyu Hyung, except to distinguish, Lee Kyu Hyung can walk and stand in his mental projections. This occurs quite frequently in Lee Dong Wook's daily life. If it is as I understand, the use of the role is brilliant because it reminds me of one of my fave films "A Beautiful Mind", where the male lead's best friend also exists only in his mind.

 

So, once again, Lee Kyu Hyung has chosen an excellent role for himself! I am so excited by the cast. Every single actor and actress is impressive, and for most of them, I have watched them in other dramas before.

Hah. I don't even watch NetFlix until recently. And only subscribed for my kids. But now discovered %€#^%_€× that Netflix licensed dramas which are not subbed eĺsewhere. I went to the main torrent site where all subs go and there was still no Life subs. Guess I will wait. Only because I am so busy my dramas are backlogged. I have about 26 episodes of 3 dramas to watch before 4th Aug.

 

I am a medical drama viewer so hope subs are good. Otherwise would just watch raw. Extremely excited over the calibre of the cast. But have zilch expectatiòns over the story. 

 

Kdramas makes being a doctor or a judge so good that every time I watch one I am tempted to have my children aspire to those jobs. Then the actual reality hits when I see real doctors and judges. Lol. My kiddo or toddlers currently aspires to be a garbage truck driver. Maybe I should ask them to drive the Truck of Doom in a Kdrama instead. That would be steady employment.
