[Drama 2019] Doctor Prisoner, 닥터 프리즈너

Recommended Posts

Fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me !

In a description I saw about the show — NYJ was a kind and dedicated doctor … until an event changes him … and he has become rather ruthless in pursuit of revenge. 

Point is, I have faith that NYJ has prepared himself against any subterfuge by Dr Soen, LJJ as well as Mo Yi-ra and her kids — he knows how devious these people can be when protecting their own interests. AND that they are using him as much as he is using them — sometimes you have to strike a deal or work with the devil.

 

**************************

I’d like to expand on the part about Dr Soen keeps getting away with offences:  

He got away with the drug trafficking because his older brother decided to cease the profitable business with the medical care facility as well as make some unlucky soul the scapegoat — which is what they do best, isn’t it? Evidence linking Haen Hospital and Dr Soen to the drug trafficking is weak coz they only capture on video the prison guard moving medication to a pharmacy and most importantly, he did not rat Dr Soen out. Last but not least, as Dr Soen would then realize, NYJ’s purpose is to keep him confined so as to break into the safe for the hard-drive. NYJ’s last chance to do so as once he is officially recognized as the new CMO, Dr Soen will clear his stuff out.

 

In episode 3, it had bugged me why NYJ handed the stethoscope to Kim Sang-Choon (the gangster boss) before he started performing surgery on LJH. After rewatching … Voila! It was to listen to the clicks and break into the safe. 

 

**************************

 

I’ve seen both KBC and CWY portraying good and bad guys, even though I don’t watch as much K-dramas nowadays. Both are so deliciously good when they are rotten bad!!!

 

I watch Nangoong Min’s acting very closely — particularly the little nuances he injects into his character, whether it’s scratching his chin, grabbing his ear or that subtle evil twitch of his mouth. His cool, controlled demeanor belies a cold, calculative mind. 

 

I've also heard rave reviews about Nangoong Min's bad boy role in a past drama. Two episodes into Chief Kim, he also has comical gene in him :)  I guess it shows his versatility and hopes he will get to try out more types of characters in future years to come -- good, bad or funny. Afterall, an artiste's worst nightmare is to be stereotyped and keeps playing the same type over and over again. 

 

 

I will sure be watching out for them -- if the genre suits my taste.

 

 

Men in Black:  The BADder -- The Better !!! :wub:

@misspiggie I think exactly like you. I doubt that NYJ hasn't planned Seon's betrayal. In fact, I believe, he is expecting it. He knows his personality very well. Moreover, he knew that in order to catch him for real, he needed to use a bait. Remember that from the start, Seon's major flaw has been his greed. Notice that once he has achieved his original goal, he reveals to his wife, he wants more. His hunger for power and wealth is limitless. They couldn't catch him for murder but they will at some point. Notice that he was the one who instigates LJJ to commit murder (his father).

Another late comer here. I had wanted to wait until the all episodes were completed but after watching episodes 1 and 2 was really hooked and couldn't hold back! hahaha now the waiting is killing me:sweatingbullets:

 

@confusedheart7997 if you're a fan of NGM you should definitely see him in GWSS he is good as a baddie there but that didn't make me dislike him. It means he is a good actor.

Anyway, moving on to LJH, I'm sorry I could not sympathize with him. His sob story could not melt my heart. He is beyond redemption. He is a cold- hearted, calculating, ruthless murderer, without any feelings of compunction or regret. Despicable! 

 

Also, why is NYJ unable to see what a back stabber Director Seon is! I don't understand why sometimes intelligent characters acting completely contrary to themselves. I hope this is just a ploy on NYJ's part to fool and to bait the bigger fish. I think this might be the reason why I didn't like the latest episode. Can we get the old sharp witted NYJ back, please?

Like you i have no sympathy for LJJ. I don't know why writers tend to make these characters have a backstory to justify their evil deeds. 

 

I am quiet sure NYJ has everything covered. He knows Director Seon cannot be trusted and you may be right to say its his ploy to bait the bigger fish. This drama is quiet fast pace in that if Seon wins in one episode NYJ quickly makes up in the next.

So. Many. Twists!

 

Nobody's really safe in this show, even when they have the upper hand, it usually gets topped by someone else shortly after. The stakes are getting higher, and with so many backstabbers and temporary partnerships and frenemies going on, it's hard to know who's going to be still standing by the end of the show. 

 

Director Seon is in trouble now, isn't he? :w00t:

I was longing to watch ep 27 - 28 & finally was able to watch it!

 

And what a master piece drama this is ! Just DAEBAK!!!!!!! :o It has all the emotions from the suspense to sorrow & hatress gathered very well in a single series! At first, I hated LJH but I was praying so hard when he was done with the cardiac arrest that he should be survived in order for NYJ to win the battle! Thank god that he's saved but is something bad gonna happen to him in next day eps..???! -_- He understands about his evil big bro's true nature & help NYJ! And I think Seon also will be back at NYJ's side soon!!! :) He is an easy target for LJJ to catch up!! :(

 

And now that LJJ has the same illness as his father, I think NYJ won't have to work so hard to break down LJJ!!! He will break down to the bottom by himself! But LJJ seems to after LJH next.... What a bad jerk he is that he is gonna use his own brother as his bait..??! :angry: I really can't stand LJJ anymore! But then I have a though in my mind.... Who would be the next 1st victim of Huntington disease..???! LJJ or LJH...???!! :wacko: This is an incredibly addicted series!!!... Only 4 eps left!!!! :o

And I love these two! They just gave us some butterflies all out of the blue! :wub: Wish they get together at the end!!!! By the way, is Mrs. Oh's ex husband also a role in this intense show..??! :mellow: Can't wait to find out!!!

@gm4queen i was just wondering that NYJ's true intention of helping LJH  to get out of jail on stay of execution is for his own revenge plans after all LJH did cause the disabled couple's accident. LJH might just suffer from renal failure like how KSW suffered from liver damage.

The answer can be long but I'll keep it short: 

 

LJH is a just a stupid second-generation chaebol spoil brat — at best you can only nail him for recklessly contributing to the disabled family’s death. Realizing LJH was just a pawn in all this, NYJ wants to keep him in prison to kick his backside — hard. Later on, he wants to get LJH out to attend the board meeting. But Korean show writers will not let LJH's get away with it even with his later repentance --- he will get his own form of retribution in today's episode. 

 

Ultimately, NYJ's target is LJJ ... (and maybe Dr Soen too?)

 

******************

In this show:

(1)  alliances are made … and unmade … depending on changing circumstances;  

(2)  the characters associate themselves with acquaintances, friends AND enemies alike … to achieve whatever purpose(s) they have; 

(3)  conscience is bonus, but not absolutely necessary, as it might actually be a hindrance.

 

So whether it's NYJ, Dr Soen, LJJ or MYR & her children, their flip-flopping stance is confusing but not surprising. It mirrors the real-world -- that's actually how crazy rich families fight for power and money. Though it sounds dramatic, the twists and turns makes for an exciting nail-biter!!!  (Otherwise I might as well be watching rom-com ;) )

 

GROWL!!! I'm scratching my eyes out for next week's finale already!

I feel very torn about what happened to LJH today, I think I have to hand it to the actor portraying him because he really sold the character to me. From the reckless and hateful chaebol in the beginning, to the hilarious and goofy inmate in the middle, to someone who grew up after his father's death at the end. He really wanted to leave jail no matter what because he knows that he has to step-up to protect his mom and sister from his ruthless brother. Sigh, I think MYR is right, NYJ really lost himself and became even more monstrous than them on his path to revenge. :tears:

I wasn't surprised that NYJ and the gang failed to secure the video showing LJJ trying to kill LJH. It all seems too easy and i can't believe NYJ would think LJJ could easily walked into his trap without having prepared in advance even though he managed have the audio of that episode. The question is: what substance did LJJ inject LJH with? He told NYJ that it was not the same substance he injected his father with. If LJJ knew that it was a set up to trap him the substance he injected into LJH may not be enough to kill him. At the end of episode we see Prosecutor Jung and his team heading in supposedly to arrest LJJ. On what grounds? Was it about the laborers of Taekang chemicals?

Yes, just watched yesterday's eps & I am so stunned by the outcome..... I really hated LJH at the beginning of the series but now I want him to live more.. He surely did bad deeds with killing innocent people on street but he seems to be aware of his sins & wanna reflect on them! :wacko: I think he should stay alive in order to beat his jerk bro!!! And I'd be so happy if opens his eyes or something hopeful in the last ep!

 

And NYJ lost his smart mind for a second & how could he fall for LJJ's trap so easily..???! I think he won't care if LJH will survive or not, his words are too harsh towards the end for Mrs. Mo! In that case, I totally agree with @MidnightRain friend here! NYJ can go to the extend for his plans but is it wise to use LJJ's own family to destroy him..???! :o Mrs. Mo's reactions aren't that good for NYJ that her second son failed to survive from her elder son because of NYJ's reckless plan!! LJH better survive at the end!! :mellow:

 

And I dunno if it's Mr. Seon's true self but glad to see that he's besides NYJ to confort him & help him catch the culprit!!! Seon knows that teaming up with NYJ is the only way for him to survive from LJJ! But how they are gonna catch him in the first place..???! I am sure that NYJ has a big card rather than the voice recording of LJJ on his hand!!!! I am desperately waiting for the finale eps!!!! And once again, KBS is smart enough that we have to wait another week only to see the finale of Doctor Prisoner-_- This is torturing!!!!! :bawling:

 

Tagging dear @bebebisous33 & @@Alice Mendoza chingus as well.... We only have 2 eps now on our fav crime series!!!! :unsure:

Honestly, Mo really got on my nerves because she is as selfish and cruel as LJJ in the end. Does she know what NYJ went through? For her, only her family and the company matter. She never cared for the others. LJH is responsible for the death of three persons. Then LJJ is also responsible for the chemical incident and although LJJ covered it up, his father knew about it, just like his wife. Yet they let him cover it up. Did Mo feel grief for the bereaved families? Did she try to help them? Nothing at all. NYJ's reproach is correct. The mistress and her kids had an impact on LJJ... they never tried to include him. The relationship in this family was terrible. They were all selfish and ruthless. To conclude, LJJ became a monster because of the way he was raised and because of his father.

I hope, this family loses the company in the end. 

 

Maybe Mrs Oh's case could be the evidence for LJJ's downfall. He is definitely connected to her arrest and sentence.

Not excusing Lee's behavior. Still, if his mom did not commit suicide, and if his dad showed at least some care when it happened...maybe he did not turn out so bad.  But this second family, the mistress, ugh. And why is Mo Ira mad? It wasnt just Ije's fault.  Four of them were supposed to monitor Jaehwan. They should have been more careful.  LJJ is no dummy, of course he would be careful about the cameras.  Yes, it seems everyone is double crossing each other and just lookinf out dor themselves, and that includes that very shrewd Mo Ira and her vile daughter.  Looking forward to see what happens in the end.  For me, it seem Han Bit should be in charge of the company, dont want it to end up with that mother and daughter team.  The deceased chairman was no saint himself.  What a mess. Almost everyone seems like a jerk.

I can't imagine how you read my mind exactly on this one, dear!! I just thought Mrs. Mo is a nice lady but she's as same as her evil son! Like son, like mother :angry: And it's a mother's nature that she wants only her kids to be safe & sound!!!! But in this case, should murderers like LJJ & LJH be safe & sound..????! -_- I don't think so! Putting aside LJH, I don't ever forgive a ruthless man like LJJ!! I think Lee family will loses everything on their own! Their so called elder son has turn the tables on the right path & NYJ won't have to try so hard! :huh:

 

And of course, They have to lose the company to save the other remaining lives of innocent people out there! And if so, who would you like to be the new heir to the Taekang Group & hospital..???! I vote for NYJ!!!! He surely will raise it to the top honor of the country, evacuating the dirt!!!! :) And I also vote for Han Bit as @cherriesblue chingu has mentioned above!!!! And I don't want it to go in hand of Director Seon.... He is the other ruthless guy that I can never forgive! :angry:

@gm4queen In my opinion, NYJ's purpose was never to help MYR and her children. Don't forget that the chairman wanted to change the way the company was ruled. Therefore NYJ's true goal has been to take away Taekwang Group from this terrible family. NYJ chose to help Mrs Oh and he has been even matchmaking her with prosecutor Jung. Oh keeps mentioning that she will become the wife's minister... therefore I believe that Oh will play a major part in taking down this family. Don't forget that he handed her over the ownership of Ha Eun Hospital.

You've said something that wasn't in my radar, dear....

 

NYJ doesn't care if LJH survive or not... He only wants the full destruction of the family!!! And Ms. Mo is acting mute but does she really aware of her son's bad deeds that she wants them to be happy & healthy..??! Then I say this, rich people are worse! 

 

Yes, Ms. Oh is keep mentioning about becoming Jung's wife.. Then is she really innocent or something & she was falsely framed for murdering her husband's mistress by LJJ..???!! Then there will surely be LJJ's traces on this Ms. Oh's case as well! :huh: And is there really a pattern or something unique for LJJ's victims..???! We know NYJ's story & Han bit's story now but how about Ms. Oh..???!! And what if Ms. Oh takes over the Taekang Group & hospital with Prosecutor Jung..??! Nah.... Technically can't be!

LJJ is trying to get the amusement park that belonged to Mrs Oh's father. So in my opinion, her husband with LJJ's help framed her for abetting the murder so that she would be sent to prison. Once convicted, her ex-husband could sign a deal with LJJ so that he would take over the amusement park. I doubt that LJJ is interested in the amusement park but in the location. Maybe they have already planned to build that VIP center there.  Why? the husband is linked to Taekwang construction company.

I love your analysis for Doctor Prisoner as always, dear @bebebisous33 chingu! Then I am with you on this one! Ms. Oh's husband must have ties with LJJ & both framed her for their own good! Then the park should be under her husband right now even though she stated that it's her dads... :D

 

And what do you about NYJ's master plan to catch LJJ red-handed..???! I dunno if I am missing something here but I sense NYJ has something big in his card pack rather than a mere voice record to reach LJJ!! :o I still can't think about anything big enough to fully break him down!! And NYJ keeps repeating that he's gonna catch LJJ when LJJ's got nothing on his hands! What the meaning would that be..??! :mellow: Is NYJ gonna make sure LJJ loses the Teakang group 1st or what..??! Teakang group's management system is also on the role!! I bet NYJ would use Seon as a bait in order to reach LJJ next week! :o

 

And little did, we are at the end of the series... Now I am more curious to know how the writer's gonna wrap up bad deeds & end up bad guys in only 1 hr next week!! :) This has been a fantastic ride so far! Hence I guess the writer would give it a proper logical ending next wednesday keeping its intense pace in its place!!! :wub:

Based on koreandrama.org we have two episodes left next week. They have changed the number of episodes, 34 episodes instead of 32. 

Park is linked to the media that's why her ex-husband was able to manipulate the media and turn this woman into a cold-blooded "murderer". The hungtinton disease will play a big part in it. Remember that he tried to kill LJH so that the disease wouldn't be mentioned in front of the board meeting.

LJH is not dead yet. Besides, they were about to get Ko's confession.
