[Drama 2018] Life 라이프

Recommended Posts

My ep.16 is not showing yet...

But ep.15 was kinda slow... Can't believe it is actually a penultimate episode, but LOL, we do need a tigress in the house, don't we? Our dear Director Oh :D I love how she shoved that restructuring head guy to the wall and started talking about his kid. And she knows more than 50 ways to kill people! LOL... but what?? they just threw employee ID's just like that into the trash bin? Okay, a bit off there from the real world. Truth is, if the cards still open access doors in the hospital, it could seriously be misused. And let's say they had disabled the cards, then, it was useless for YJW to pick them up anyway... This bit of detail was a bit disappointing for me for such a drama. Was it a miss from the writer? or the director? Oh well....

 

Poor poor CEO Cho... I now realized he had such low self-esteem despite his wealth... He was always in the shadow of KSH. Still didn't earn my sympathy though. I hope he gets his consequences...

 

At least we see progress in the romance department for YJW... Real smooth move in asking for a kiss :D He is good even though it seems that he's never dated before.... unfortunately, foiled again by YSW's double. But at least JW was able to open up and share with Reporter. And look at just how happy he was when he reached home.

 

While waiting for ep.16 to become available, I think someone, anyone, should set the record straight on behalf of the production.... The main character of LIFE is just JSW and LDW. The rest are just supporting character, WJA and MSR included. Yeah, that's how I will remember this casting by. A drama does not have to have female lead to accompany male lead. Why mislead us viewers into thinking that WJA and MSR will get significant screen time and presence in the story by calling them female lead? I really wouldn't consider them that way at all. And also as someone said earlier (I believe it was 40somethingahjumma) that this show is a workplace drama (in a hospital), not a medical drama at all.

That is it, you guys!

Just watching all episode 16 youtube clips an was emotinal ride for me. And the way they end - filming  Gu & NoEul grinning from ear to ear @ dust hrs + perfect ost, made me feel so melancholy! The couple & the brothers are done with the unimportant things and  living their LIFE. 

 

Still so emotionals, I didn't realized how attached I am to this series.  Goodbye summer 2018!

Like Dr. Kim said, we all have our seasons. Seung-Hyo is not an old man by any imagination but he made the right decision to leave. There is always someone better and more attractive ready to step into his shoes.

I'm laughing at the fact that - in that scene Tae In Ho-ssi basically wear his own clothes! That shirt & that watch he wears @ Jtbc's Life & Tvn's About Time after party!:lol:

[굿바이 ‘라이프’] 조승우의 진가, 이수연의 한계

  [Goodbye 'Life'] Cho Seung-woo's true story, Lee Soo-yeon's limit

From Herald Korea

Google translate:

Spoiler



JTBC Wolhwa drama 'Life' through the audience clearly two things. The first is the dominance of the actor Jo Seung-woo and the second is the limit of Lee Soo-yeon, the new monster who has won the honor of BaekSang Art Grand Prix as his debut TVN 'Secret Forest' (2017).

'Life' ended on November 11. In the last inaugural broadcast, Seung Hyo Koo (Cho Seung-woo), who was laid off, succeeded in preventing the commercialization of Sangkuk University Hospital instead of solving the crisis of Chungmun Sung.

Seo Hyo, who came to meet doctors with the consideration of the last working day, the hospital director of Oh Se-hwa (Moon So-ri) and the vice chairman of the university, This scene gave a tangible touch compared to the 3 minute speech in the auditorium where the doctor slaughtered a lot on the day when Seunghyang first visited the hospital in 'Life'.

Ino-e (Won Jin-ah) confessed his mind by catching Seunghyo leaving. However, Se - Hyo left with only good - bye. In the end, Ino-ue decided to leave the Shang-gang hospital and go to a local hospital. Before his retirement, Nogu insisted on establishing an independent foundation for his seniors, including the hospital director, to escape from the chief of inquiry. At the same time Seunghyou proposed a new business to the president and became president of another business. Over time, Seunghyun came back to the local hospital where he worked.

On the other hand, Ye Jinwoo (Dong Wook) has no longer seen the illusion of his brother Sun Woo. I was able to overcome the trauma and enjoy happy daily life with my real brother Sunwoo. As the new president of Sangkuk Dae Hospital, actor Lee Jun-hyuk appeared as a cameo, and 'Life' came to a close.


restmb_allidxmake.php?idx=5&simg=2018091


'Life' was one of the anticipated films in the second half of this year. 'Secret Forest' Lee Su - yeon is the author 's next work, and Jo Seung - woo once again held his hand. The 'Secret Forest' was not a drama with simple courtroom or inspectors. Through this 'Secret Forest', the artist sharpens the corruption in the prosecution and showed insight into the abandonment of modern society through it. In addition, actors such as Bae Doo Na and Yu Jae Myeong, who starring Cho Seung-woo, and Lee Hyun-hyung and Shin Hye Sun, have achieved acting ensembles.

The start of Life was similar to the Secret Forest. 'Life' is based on a university hospital, but it is hard to define as medical water. This is because they are more focused on illuminating the power structures and interests surrounding the hospital than showing the doctors the operation of the patient. In this drama, a large company called Hwajeong Group took over the university hospital and after that, the things happening in the hospital, the people who voiced each other to survive, or the doctors who joined the force came up.

The actors who played this were also impressive. Jo Seung-woo, who once again cooperated with this artist after the 'Secret Forest', was unquestionable. When Yoo Jae-myeong, Moon So-ri, Moon Sung-geun, etc. were caught in one frame, it seemed as if the screen of the theater had been moved to the TV. The veterans' acting contest attracted the admiration. Taein Ho, Hyeon Hyeon, and Kim Won-sun from the top of the second half of the field to join Jeong Mun-sung's new stellar performance was also poured.

However, at this point in life, the reaction of viewers is inferior to the 'secret forest'. There are many viewers who were disappointed as expectations were high. Why?


restmb_allidxmake.php?idx=5&simg=2018091


'Life' production team, before the show, 'the number of important cold-blooded champion seunghyu and focus on the faith of the doctor focused on the psychology of many people, I will draw a dense and dense. But the reality was different. Conflicts between businesses and hospitals should have become prominent due to the confrontation between SeungHyo and JinWoo. Seung Hyo and Jin-woo, the two characters have not been balanced because of the development of the play.

The fun of 'Life' was based on Seo Hyo thoroughly. The conflict that aroused when he took office in a university hospital, which was intended to make a profit, was stimulated by the audience at the beginning of Life. In this process, Jo Seung-woo's acting power of Seunghyou raises the character's persuasiveness. Seung Hyo, who was introduced as a villain in the 'Life' broadcast, and this character has met with Cho Seung-woo, and the number of viewers who support him has increased.

While Seung Hyo received the support of the viewers, the characters of Jin-woo lost their way. Originally, Jinwoo was one of the characters who had the most job to do in Life. I had to dig out the secrets of the suicide of former hospital director Lee Bo-hoon (Chun Ho-jin) and plan to fight against the Hwajeong group together with the hospital doctors and senior medical doctors. The problem was that the busy Jinwoo was just an emergency center specialist. It is virtually impossible. Of course, 'Life' is a drama of fiction. However, because it was a drama in which the ambition to sharpen the reality inside the hospital was put on the foreground, the point lacking reality was felt even more unfortunate.

In the extension line, the meaning of the character named "Noh" was doubtful. Glow is a classmate with Jinwoo. A bright, positive, sunny day, Jang Hwa jumped at the hospital's president, Se-Hyo, and joked. It seemed to see a typical female character in an unrealistic romantic comedy. Even from now on, the atmosphere of seunghyo and strange has spread. It was clear that the relationship between the president and the employee was somewhat lacking in the feeling of love and romance. Above all, the viewers had to be more confused because they did not present a clear episode in which the two characters were placed in this relationship.

Likewise, it was hard to sympathize with the romance of Jin-woo and reporter Choi Seo-hyun who met for the hospital coverage. In particular, the relationship between the main narrator of 'Life' and the relationship between the two characters play a separate role, and the scene of Jinwoo and Seo Hyun seems to be boring.

Here, the artist's vulnerability was clearly revealed. It does not properly add additional romance to the main story. One of the reasons why the Secret Forest was so popular at the time was the absence of romance. Most domestic dramas are accompanied by a love story regardless of genre. On the other hand, the protagonists of 'The Secret Forest' came together only as a colleague. There was no scene suggesting love. The message that the drama wants to show is rather clear because there is no more feeling than necessary. But 'Life' had a romance narrative of all the main characters. However, they were not connected smoothly. Romance, including the story of the family of the Jin Woo and Sunwoo brothers, the story is far from the main narrator, and Jungwoo heating spreads, and it is said that the whole drama has halved the fun.

It is also true that the evaluation of 'Life' is even more severe because 'Secret Forest' is so well received as a masterpiece. However, this artist has only finished his second work. Apart from the unfortunate points, this writer's unique choreography was enough to captivate the enthusiasts. Therefore, I hope that this artist will be able to supplement the limitations found in 'Life' and to release his next works in a more perfect way, while saving the power of his own development.

@Ha Tinh Nhi @triplem @40somethingahjumma Seon-woo said he believes in Goo because at their first meeting, Goo sat down at his level after he was going to stand up.  That’s the kind of person he is.

 

What do you think he means about Seung-Hyo’s character?  He also believes in his intelligence and will to make things better like changing the hospital culture. 

After watching eps 15, it’s clear that Goo’s conscience has been pricked by this motley crew. It’s always been about the numbers for him . But for the first time , he realises that these numbers represent lives , they aren’t just a statistic or figure on a spreadsheet. SW can see beneath that suit is a man who is capable of caring for something beyond just dollar & cents. 

——

with love for my favourite Ye brothers :wub:. I’m glad my shipped sailed as well ; reporter girl is amazing coz she understood JW & was accepting of his condition in eps 15

I love this scene , very symbolic, JW finally lets go of his imaginary Brother 

 

And highlight scene :D . @bedifferent in Lee Joon Hyuk’s last drama he was also a Dr Ye . So I have a thing for all Dr Ye(s)  Lol! I heart this Greek God. I do hope there will be SF 2

@triplem Jin-woo is letting go of the burden and worries for his brother.  He believes that Seon-woo CAN be on his own and live his life. 

 

A very good ending.

 

Profiles befitting legendary gods.

My Seung-Hyo :heart: Finally finds someone to walk along side with, beats the back of any Genesis.

“Life” Cast Bids Farewell With Final Thoughts

JTBC’s “Life” has now come to an end. On September 11, the cast of the medical drama shared their thoughts on the conclusion of their drama.

Actor Cha Rae Hyung, who appeared as Dr. Bang, shared a photo of himself holding up the drama script.

He wrote, “I was happy that I was able to work with a good director, writer, staff members, and senior actors whom I respect. I was always excited and it felt like a dream going to the set when I thought about getting to see the senior actors performing. The filming was short but I gained a lot through ‘Life’ and learned a lot, so it was a meaningful time. Thank for giving me a good opportunity. I will use this as nourishment to grow more and show you a more developed appearance next time.”

Just watched with eng subs and it was really an amazing finale. I will miss this series, i kind of wished it was bit longer haha..i think 20-25 episodes could've explored a little more and given the background characters more time. But all and all i am satisfied! The final ost is so beautiful and perfect at the end. So touching seeing the brothers, No-Eul and Mr Gu smiling happily. It was really interesting reading the article comparing the two series FOS and Life. I think it is incredible what this writer have accomplished. This is her second series and good ratings on top that. All the actors also did an excellent performance. Hopefully there will be a reunion in the future when the writer pens her third drama haha :D

Perfect ending. Couldn't have been better. It would have been a cliche if they would have shown that they had taken down Hwajeong. I mean is it a piece of cake to destroy a corporation like that who has connection everywhere. Also the first time I agree with what the chairman said. Till how long people can resist greed. Till how long they can hold their conscience. " I would like to see how sangkook would turn in 10-20 years". 
Glad that at last Jin woo got rid of his guilt. He can now live freely with his brother. No Eul realized that it wasn't only because of hospital, that she went to him. Seung Hyo even did despised the chairman, never betrayed him. Tried to save the hospital as well as himself. That's what we all do. We do our best to survive. Even the chairman can't throw him out. At last he was assigned the position of President in global plant. Lastly he came to meet her and usual she had a question for him. Ending scene was superb with both the brothers bonding with each other without any guilt and GSH and LNE taking a walk and laughing.
