[Drama 2018] Life 라이프

Recommended Posts

@bedifferentMhm, doesn't sound too bad. From what I read it sounds kinda interesting. And it's a medical drama too, so the chance of reading some huge medical explanation wall of texts written by you is also very high. Ohhhh....how much I loved those during "Duel". 

 

So can you back up my imagination of this being interested or is it just kinda okayish? I mean.....there is also Voice starting in a few days and you know, I'm a solo watcher. Once I start something, everything else is on hold.

SOJIN (GIRL’S DAY) – CLOSE YOUR EYES (LIFE OST PART 2)


Everything disappears like a dream
It flows somewhere like the wind
It scatters, even the pain
When dawn comes, it goes with the darkness


Close your eyes, this night will slowly pass
As if nothing’s wrong, as if nothing happened
Close your eyes, like a rain shower
That falls and stops after a moment


Tears that can’t be avoided
Or fits of life that feels so lonely
They will all pass, quietly
Like the many days of crying silently


Close your eyes, this night will slowly pass
As if nothing’s wrong, as if nothing happened
Close your eyes, like a rain shower
That falls and stops after a moment


I’m quietly screaming

Finished episode 5 & 6, i want next episode haha...now i'm as addicted as with FOS! It's so good!

 

I really liked Jin-Woo's interactions with the reporter! It showed a completely different side of him, made the character more fully rounded for me. I also like the scenes between the president and No-Eul. 

 



Almost look like there will be a small triangle between them? :P In that case, i will cheer for the president for now. Their scenes are so cute. But Jin-Woo seems a bit jealous too haha, i think they have great chemistry as well. But maybe i will feel a bit sad for Sun-Woo in that case. Maybe that's why Jin-Woo wouldn't pursue anything with No-Eul before. I don't mind if there isn't any loveline but i like those small scenes as a break from all the seriousness~ 

 

Really look forward to next Monday & Tuesday! :)

I might be only of the few those who actually like the president more than Ye Jin Woo.

 

Unlike the EM doctor, the resident actually tried to find a solution for the collapse of the hospital and seeks improvement.

I get his methods are do not fit the philosophy of each individual, but how else will he be able to find a common solution for all the departments, including those who are in debt?

 

To me, the doctors come off as arrogant and seeking their own benefits, that look up for their social status than the real meaning of their job. When the president found a way for them to remain in Seoul and asked them to do something to compensate for what they were given, I got frustrated. You do not get fired or moved somewhere else, you receive medical equipment, yet you complain if you have to do something that does not fit the standards of your own pride ?

 

JinWoo's reason seems selfish to me too. The fact that he spent"his best years" working for the hospital it is understandable, but I see at not wanting to be separated from his crush. If he really wanted to remain in Seoul, why not seek a job to another hospital. If he is as good as he pretends, then there should be no problem.

 

The hospital it is private property, not owned by government, which means someone needs to take care of its needs and the future. That someone will always be the bad guys since it has to deal with the ugly part, with the "shadows", so ofc he will not be liked by the majority.

 

And no offense, I dislike throughly the female lead. She lacks the depth, the story that would allow me to identify for her. She has no aspirations, she is only the pretty doc that serves as part in a love triangle. And she is not an outstanding actress too, one of the nurses was the evil wife in Mistresses. Her skills are better than the "main Barbie", which has a lot to go to match Cha Seung Won and Lee Dong Wook. I don't get why they did not cast a better actress or at least write her character better.

 

I like the older doctor with glasses that works 36 hours. He seems really humble and truly dedicated. He needs more screen time, more than the main Barbie. The actor does a really good job and I would like to see him more, his character would impact the story more than the main Barbie, in my opinion.

 

Those are my opinions so far, from the perspective of a pessimist.

Take JSW : His character starts out to be an aggressive young upstart, ready to clean the slate and bulldoze corporate changes to the stuffy old and inefficient hospital practices. However, by ep 4, the story slowly peels away this outer layer to show us that he’s not that cold and heartless as one perceives him to be

 

LDW: He starts out the show as a responsible and upright Dr who looks up to Dr Lee the late hospital director like his own father. But his image of him was shattered after he stumbled upon dr lee’s embezzlement of hospital funds. This coupled with his sudden death and change in hospital management forced him to step out of his comfort zone and fight back. I guess some viewers might have felt that his acting was too stiff and stoic. Actually on hindsight, it was a deliberate move by LDW to show the character’s indifference and callousness to his environment and later to show the growth in his character as he tries to fight back against what he deems as unjust like how he spoke up in the first townhall. Also, he seems to be under immense emotional stress as he sees visions of his normal brother nudging him like his subconscious. This is similar to how it was after the unfortunate accident during his childhood.

 

YJM: Gosh, it’s really amazing to see how great an actor he is after watching him in SF and then now in Life. In SF, he was this commanding no nonsense chief prosecutor who plots his next moves meticulously. Now he gets bullied by his colleagues and is such a softie as he doesn’t turn away difficult cases. And when faced against JSW’s GSH,  he loses most of the time like a sad puppy.

 

Hello.  JSW's character is very much like ShiMok imo :P  The way I see it, he's as objective and analytical - without the need for lobotomy- the kind of man who eats and sleeps cold data and facts thus why he is good at what he does.  Writer is using a similar kind of character as SM to uncover secrets and problems long ingrained in the university hospital.  As he starts to know more about the people he managed, Seung-Hyo's ruthlessness evolves into the kind of conviction that is needed to make the right changes for good.

 

There was a segment in one of the episodes where we hear Jin-Woo's voice over talking about how he doesn't have the courage to turn away from helping people thus he continues on despite exhaustion for his patients.  I see the same mentality in the murdered director LBH, this strong sense of justice and idealism.  The same altruistic code of honor in surgeon Dr. Joo (excellently played by Yoo Jae-Myung) who takes on difficult cases that others pushed at him.  They cannot say no because they feel a strong personal duty bound by their profession to do the right thing for others.  It's commendable but it is also their weakness, something others prayed and exploited.  As the drama progresses, I hope to see them have courage of a different kind.  The courage to speak up for their patients.  Or better, for themselves when they are poorly treated.  We see Dr. Joo gets taken advantage of because he is a transferred surgeon while others fraternizing around him.  Residents keep their heads down, taking on additional works, for upperclassmen.  Oncology chief covering up mistakes for their residents.  No one spoke the truth.  At least not until the end of E5 when Dr. Joo unleashed his pent up feelings about the reason for the low moral of cardiothoracic surgeons.  It took courage and was a good example for Jin-woo to see.

 

@staygold @triplem @celebrianna thanks for checking in!  If you're afraid of blood and stuffs, stand up and go get a snack or something during those scenes! :P Drama doesn't have LoM's adrenaline.  Episodes 2-3 are almost non eventful but it starts to set up the playing field and chess pieces.  Once episodes 4-5 get going, you'll see how everything starts to connect.  Writer-nim is very meticulous in her plotting.  Things do make sense.  Do keep character chart handy.

 

@Dhakra  think you will like Voice 2's energy more.   Life is more introspective.  It's more about reality so not sure if you want to watch a drama about real life, most people want to escape it.  That said, I think it's a different kind of thriller and well written/acted.  I promise I won't write too many walls of texts here.  Come by. :lol: Watch this one and Voice 2, it's a good combo.

 

@ganko  Jin-Woo mentioned that reporter Seo-Hyun looks familiar.  Any guess why, how, where did that happened?  Mr Goo has chemistry with pediatrician No-Eul. In the drama, she appears to understand his points a little.  I feel sorry for Sun-Woo's torch-carrying .  I haven't watched E6 so not sure if they are creating any love triangle here with the two brothers.  I just see her treating the two men like close friends.  Jin-Woo knows of his brother's crush, she has to see it too.  Honestly, I think if the girl is in love with Jin-Woo, she would reciprocate the Vitamin C drinks with her own PPL coffee or something.  So far, no obvious romantic feelings for the Ye brothers in my eyes.

 

@Schiau  All I can say is I miss Secret Forest's Bae-Doona.  She was lovable but far from being a push-over.  No-Eul I think is a more feminine character; she's supposed to project this sweet nurturing personality to enable her to work with children and parents. As a resident, she still gets work dumped on.   I think she can learn to be stronger, we don't know what kind of surprises the writer have in store for this female lead.  I did like the little night "date" she has with Seung-Hyo, showing him the department that he was going to transfer out.  Those prematured babies in the NICU got to him.  He ran out of there as fast as he could.  Next thing you know, guy came home and wanted to snuggle with his mom!  

 

...super sleepy so will post more tomorrow once I 've watched E6.

 

LDW fans, where are you?  Let's hear your thoughts :lol:

Yes, i'm also very curious about that! Could she have been a patient or relative to someone who stayed at the hospital? She didn't seem fazed getting blood on her shoes which makes me wonder if she is somehow familiar with it, but just a far-fetched guess :) 

 

Yes, it didn't occur to me until episode 6 so might be far-fetched too haha. Jin-Woo seems quite interested in the reporter too. I think it was how episode 6 ended that prompted those thoughts, but then again, episode 3 ending was a bit out of context too haha...I do think they have more of a sister-brother relationship/friendship. Probably just Jin-Woo being protective. And with the constant calling, it must be a bit difficult to even think about dating :P

 

I enjoy the female lead but i can also understand your thoughts @Schiau In contrast to Oh Se-Hwa, i think No-Eul is more open-minded. From the preview for episode 7, it seems her values will be tested. I hope we can get to know them more as the drama progresses. Right now i think Oh Se-Hwa is too flat as a character, just seem to glare all the time. I was happy the president told her off.

@bedifferent I have to say that this medical drama is totally different from what I expected.

Honestly, to me the real villain of this show seems to be the deputy director Kim Tae Sang. The more episodes we get, the more obvious it becomes that KTS has always aimed at the Hospital director seat. He made sure to start the strike in order to have the support from the medical staff, yet from the start he was never interested in their interests. 

The fact that he told to the Cancer center director that he needed to be as close as possible to Mr. Gu in order to push him aside made me think of the event that happened to the former Hospital director Lee Bu Hoon. I really have the impression that he used the change of the president in order to get rid of his "opponent". When he pointed out the time LBH was acting as director, you could sense that the 11 years were a long time for KTS. 

 

Strangely, I am rooting more and more for Mr. Gu because unlike the majority of the doctors, he seems to be more open-minded. YJW is biased towards Gu, however he seems to have forgotten how KTS lied and manipulated the staff with his lie. I hope, Dr. Yoo will become a candidate for that hospital director seat.

My thoughts regarding "Life" .

    JSW character : first impression in being ruthless was from doctors point of view, because his assistant always seem comfortable, so he doesn't really changed in the meantime. Much of his actions must be read starting with " They need to know that their life /future is in my hands" and he knew beforehand at what to expect at the hospital from his college friend. Doctors are in their big majority as :

12 hours ago, Schiau said:

To me, the doctors come off as arrogant and seeking their own benefits, that look up for their social status than the real meaning of their job

 and trust me, I know. Just yesterday a resident in my hospital ( and a good and hardworking one) entered in operation crying, because her superiors humiliated her ( somehow her team is the best one medical speaking and the worse one as human being) . One of them is female and I can compare her with Oh Se Hwa .

   Best doctors don't really made great things for the patient but for their ambition to be the best in their field, and yes they consider themselves special from others, not really friends between them, and if you didn't come from a family of doctors... but common people, your life will not be as easy... so, so far the writer pointed everything.

     When you are the type like Yoo Jae Myung, your colleagues, even those smaller than you and even you helped them many times coming long distance and at any hour when nobody responds at their phones (is here one like that) respect is far from received.

 

  JSW character... my personal feeling is that he has bigger goals, not only regarding hospital, but Hwajeong group. I think his mind changed after seeing dr. Joo sleeping on the floor (this doesn't happen in real life, OR needs to be cleaned, disinfected, prepared in case of emergency) and the pediatric wards...maybe he was not rich during childhood...his mother slept on the floor like an old habit. 

   Such a pleasure watching JSW's acting... never get enough.

   Please excuse eventual mistakes regarding english. Nice day to you all.

Life] Ep 5 Yoo Jae Myung's lines at the end touches hearts

 
life2.png
Article: Naver 'Life' Jo Seung Woo vs Yoo Jae Myung x Lee Dong Wook 



1. [+327,-53]
After watching this, it seems like it's not just Hong Jun Pyo's fault.. The scriptwriter kept reminding viewers that the doctors, Jo Seung Woo, no one is completely right, or wrong.. Hong Jun Pyo closed Jinju Medical Centre because the citizens wanted it.. That grandpa only followed the public sentiment and votes. The important thing is the gap between the majority of the citizens who felt that it is a waste of tax and the healthcare expenses of the minority who belongs to the lower income group. 

[t/n: This seem like a real life matter. More details can be found here: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2013/05/113_136584.html]

2. [+218,-18]
Watching this feels like Hong Jun Pyo only heard what he wants to hear. From the 1st episode, the scriptwriter has pointed out a lot of problems. The medical bills, insurance, Shim Pyung Won (Health Insurance Review and Assessment), the doctors team, administration team, etc, none of them are good or evil. They all coexist together. No one is absolutely bad, and no one is absolutely kind. 


3. [+210,-10]
Why didn't you ask me about your mother?? (Jo Seung Woo's line). 


4. [+145,-18]
At the end of the episode today, Yoo Jae Myung's lines is the most.... wow ㅠㅠㅠ


5. [+52,-14]
Lee Dong Wook's acting is really good. ㅠㅠ


6. [+51,-16]
Chief Joo Kyung Moon's lines at the end of the episode... To be telling a story about hospital so well... this scriptwriter is really talented. At the paediatrics and NICU scene, seriously. Just the baby grabbing her finger was so touching... at the end, the Chief's lines was goosebump-inducing. ㅠ A budget of 0.025%... We should rethink about this topic again. 


7. [+37,-9]
Lee Dong Wook's delicate acting is really good.. His performance is really outstanding no matter what role he takes on. His appearance seem to bury his good acting skills; He gets more praises for his looks than acting.. which is a pity. Why did the scriptwriter create the character Ye Jin Woo..? 
Dramas should be led by the leads.. but I'm not sure about his role. 


8. [+46,-19]
Jo Seung Woo's acting is really good.. 


9. [+28,-3]
A daebak drama is born... Ye Jin Woo's teacher is really charming.

It was mentioned in the second episode that GSH had been on a scholarship, and the stares he got from the rest of the men in the room were like, 'yeah, look at that lowly scum', so I'm pretty sure his family had been poor indeed.

Well, you NOT writing wall of texts about something medical is rather a reason to not stay here. I like those, during Duel these were always very interesting. Honestly I like dramas about the real world or real life more than anything else. Probably also a reason why I loved Fairy and PNB so much. 

I guess I can squeeze in the first couple of episodes before Voice 2 starts.

I miss Bae DooNa too, especially the personality of her character. She was a female lead that actually did something more than crying or trying to be cute. I do not think you have to befeminine to work with parents and children, more over since the job of a doctor does not involve behaviour but skills. What I dislike about her is the fact that what defines her is not what she can do or seeing her actually treating patients, but acting as a crush for other male characters; and by treating patients not just making a kid laugh.She has so many patients, but she has time to wander around the hospital and take the presidents to a tour...

 

I have to like her because she is beautiful? Hell no, if she has no interesting background or if she does not have any hidden layer to stirr my interest, no thanks. More over, the actress does not have anything outstanding, her acting is plain. Compare her to Seo HyunJin or Moon Chae Won, whom were both leads in a medical drama, for example.

I was not talking about Oh Se Hwa, but about Lee Sang Hee - the nurse from EM. I've seen the actress in another drama and her skills are better that "NoEul"" actress. I do not even care about Oh Se Hwa's character, the nurse caught my attention more than those two, not because I recogneized the actress, but because her character was interesting from the beginning. 

 

The NoEul girl complains she has more patients, but we never saw her dealing with the stress the EM nurse had.We actually saw the nurse treating a patient, under stress conditions. She stood up for her rights from the first "staff meeting" and actually has something to stand for", except from being the protagonist's crush or being "the pretty lady everybody likes". I like she is realistic. 

 

Good for NoEul for being  open minded when she has no principles to defend, no other that being the "girl-next-door"type. Until she goes through the stress we've seen the nurse go or standing up to defend her rights, just to be denied...i'M WAITING.

I like your analysis, did not think so deep about things. If that proves to be true, him being poor and his mother...

Makes me like his character even more.

Thanks for the link!   Real life hospital closure.  Really interesting comments.  You get a polician who decided to close a public hospital to stop money hemorrhaging public funds on staff salaries who don’t serve enough patients to justify their presence.  You also hear about union hospital staff members who fired back claiming their salaries reflect the needed level of care as opposed to the overpayed public officials.  Then there are commenters who suggested public officials are just carrying the voters’ sentiments who don’t want to put their tax money for the small group of society who cannot afford insurance.  Who is the evil party here?  It’s a complicated problem.

I agree, he must be a tolerant person and a cool prickly boss.  They’re like an old married couple, she keeps it real for him.  His loyalty to Hwajeong group is not absolute.   His success is not from him insisting on his own way I believe.  When the CEO insists on having the hospital pay for the new relocated building, Seong-Hyu replied back that the company should pick up the tab. His willingness to be flexible and learn on the job suggests that he is a good negotiator tho he likes to establish who’s the boss first.  We already know he has some conscience when he negotiated the land deal.

Ohhh, me too.  I can’t put my thoughts down.  Why and how do you think it’s different from your usual medical drama? 

 

Deputy director Kim is playing both sides for his personal ambition.  Mr Goo is an outsider who is a shoe- in for the baddie, even if he didn’t come with this controversial solution to reduce budget and loss.  It’s in Dr. Kim interest to play out the scenarios to his benefits so he can eliminate his enemies using Mr Goo.

Neurosurgeon Oh Se-Hwa has the elite attitude that unfortunately plagued a lot of these highly skilled neurosurgeons.  There is a hierachy with the neuro and ortho surgeons at the top of the food chain.  They are usually the brightest, not necessarily the nicest people.  For a woman to get to her position, it takes a lot of hard work, schooling, sacrifices.  I don’t know if the job changed the woman in Dr. Oh’s case.  She does seem like she doesn’t have the best bedside manner either.  I don’t know if this is a deliberate characterization on the writer’s part to show her growth by the end of the drama.  I know it is possible and have seen nice skilled good female physicians.

 

@Schiau Points taken. :)  I  think pediatrician No-Eul is there to provide contrast against the neurosurgeon since the younger woman is more personable though she is not as skilled.  While she was called for a pt with fever, she ordered Tylenol without examining the pt at bedside.  That was handled too lightly, what if the pt has a serious infection that she overlooked by just masking the fever with med?  No-Eul has great bedside manner toward her pts.  She cares though is staying pretty much removed from the situation. It’s like she doesn’t want to be involved.  We see her reading newspaper articles about the lack of pediatricians in the rural areas yet she is not willing to make the sacrifice personally and move there.  She understands where Mr. Goo is coming from yet choose to remain silent in the theater.  I am hoping she will change to be more active eventually.
