Phenomenal cast and well written, 21 episodes of greatness. There were serious issues being tackled in this drama, but they were still able to pull off comedic relief at just the right times to break up some very intense scenes. It was well balanced. Most dramas have an obvious love triangle, but this drama masked it so well that it was almost nonexistent and did not take over the whole drama.
Han Suk-Kyu did an amazing job playing the role of Master Kim. He battled being dealt with so unfairly, but that never let him give up on being a doctor and doing his best to save lives. Most of the staff that ended up working with Master Kim have a past they need to deal with or move on from. With the help of Master Kim, they all face their pasts and become a family willing to do what it takes to save the small town hospital and the many patients that come through their doors.
This drama also gets kudos from me for the awesome kiss scene in the first episode between Kang Dong-Joo (Yoo Yeon-Seok) and Yoon Seo-Jung (Seo Hyun-Jin). Sometimes the main focus is on the lead characters and not so much on supporting characters. However, Nurse Park (Kim Min-Jae) deserves props for making his character so memorable that it felt like he was one of the lead actors. Definitely ready to see him take on a lead role made just for him.
