[Kdrama] ‘Doctor Stranger’ ep 11&12 ~impression/opinion~

Episode 11 and 12 are probably the ones I love the most so far. I like that they showed the human side of Jae Joon and not take him until the end as the negative evil second guy of the drama. Although there were bits of Jae Joon’s in the earlier episodes, in the last two we got to know more about him and the reason he turned the way he is.

After what I saw, I really want a bromance between Jae Joon and Hoon, or at least a collaboration between them, because in the end, both were hurt by this hospital and by the people who run it. The end of episode 12 most definitely makes us look forward to the two teaming up to save the patient, and to be honest, it made me think that at least there are a few doctors in that hospital who actually think of the good of their patient.

As for Jae Joon and Soo Hyun, well… I know I called my blog “the second lead syndrome” for a reason, however, I feel like I’m going to a whole new level with this thing; because until now I’ve never liked both the female and male second leads (at the same time and from the same drama) so much to the point of wanting them to honestly end up together. Thus I really hope that Jae Joon was honest when he told Soo Hyun – before the surgery – that his feelings for her all this time were true. At this point I don’t even care what happens with Hoon or Jae Hee because I’m way too centered on Jae Joon and Soo Hyun.

I still think that the writer has no idea where and how to go with the story. The dialogues and the meaning of their words are careful chosen, but overall it doesn’t seem to blend, it’s like the writer wants to put too many good stuff into the show and its characters and so ends up messing the original concept of the story. I hope the writer will pick up fast the story or at least will understand what he/she wants to make out of it, because the concept was good but the development kind of lacks.

I personally like characters such as Hoon and Jae Joon, even Soo Hyun – these 3 characters were well written, even so you can’t do much with only the characters if you don’t focus on the story as a whole.
