Two of the most popular Korean drama categories get a punchy mash-up in Doctor Lawyer, starring So Ji-sub, in which the carved celebrity succeeds of not one, but two of South Korea’s most treasured careers.
Early in the opening episode of the MBC series, the writers of Doctor Lawyer distil the long-lasting enjoyments of medical as well as lawful dramas when professional doctor-turned-lawyer Han Yihan (So) discusses in voiceover that the “court resembles an operating room” in that it’s that rare location with the power to begin or finish a life one over again.
This proverb is no simple generalisation– it puts on Yihan himself, whose has actually discovered himself either rubbed up in running theatres or clothed to impress in law courts.
These places, main to clinical and also lawful practice respectively, are keyed for drama however they are additionally endpoints in themselves; for the professionals who run in them, they stand for the conclusion of years of education as well as experience but likewise the complicated tapestry of connections as well as policies that keep them going.
As Doctor Lawyer starts, a court is in session with a doctor being sentenced for clinical negligence. The judge orders him to stand to hear the decision, however he breaks down with a heart attack.
Paramedics attempt to revitalize him, and in strides handsome as well as tall Yihan, that takes charge. As he approaches saving the dying guy, prosecuting lawyer Geum Seok-yeong (Lim Soo-hyang, likewise currently on our displays as the lead actress in Woori the Virgin) advises him, stating: “You’re not a doctor anymore!” To which he coolly responds: “Should I just leave him to die?”
Yihan’s confidence is rock-solid, as we learn when the clock winds back five years to an operating theatre where he saves an individual’s life and his besotted coworkers admire his speed, precision as well as handsome features.
No quicker has he scrubbed down than he gets an emergency phone call and heads back out to scrub up again, even though he’s already executed 3 procedures back to back.
Not only is Yihan an excellent surgeon, he is also a perfect boyfriend to Seok-yeong as well as an amatory main caretaker to her younger sibling Seok-ju (Han Seung-bin), a trainee waiting for a new heart that intends to follow in Yihan’s steps.
The only thing to hold against Yihan is that he permits himself to be used by Gu Jin-gi (Lee Kyoung-young), the head of Banseok Hospital– carrying out secret procedures for VIPs, usually replacing Jin-gi’s unskilled kid Hyun-seong (Lee Dong-ha).
When one day all his desires come real at as soon as, every little thing is looking up for Yihan. A new heart is discovered for Seok-ju, Seok-yeong approves his marital relationship proposition as well as Jin-gi advertises him to his desire placement, head of cardiothoracic surgery.
However the greater the rise, the swifter the autumn. The minute Yihan effectively finishes Seok-ju’s heart transplant he is called for another unethical procedure. The individual’s face is hidden and, much more strange still, it is an additional heart transplant he is asked to perform. It goes well, however the next morning Seok-ju deviates for the even worse. Fingers are pointed at Yihan, who was busy with the secret transplant and also nowhere to be discovered.
Things swiftly spiral out of hand for Yihan, that locates himself charged of medical negligence as well as thrown in jail. His associates turn against him and he makes a decision to break up with a heartbroken Seok-yeong. He approves a prosecution offer to stay clear of prison time as well as leaves the medical career behind completely.
Though we have not seen specifically what he performs in the present yet, save for carrying out surgical procedure on a surgeon on a court room flooring, we know from the program’s marketing that Yihan has become a lawyer that is experts in medical negligence.
Offered Yihan’s own brush with malpractice, which was possibly orchestrated by his previous boss and also individuals linked to the strange heart transplant client, we can sensibly expect that he will certainly function his way with the courts as he seeks to remove individuals who wronged him.
The story of Doctor Lawyer comes together rapidly and easily, as well as the primary satisfaction will remain in seeing how a best figure climbs from the ashes to counter at the corrupt powers that caused his downfall.
Yihan is without a doubt excellence objectified, that makes him an idealised man and also a million miles far from being a relatable personality. That can alter if the show provides him a couple of layers over the coming weeks as the tale unravels.
Last seen 4 years ago in My Secret, Terrius, So cuts a snappy figure in the lead role, with his deep-set eyes and also wide shoulders making him the hunkiest physician legal representative any individual might request. Curiously in this day and also age, So is the unusual Korean A-lister who has yet to appear in a cable television or streaming show, having actually remained loyal to broadcast networks to date.
