HOSPITAL SHIP (K-drama) 2017

5101_HospitalShip_Nowplay_Small

A story about young doctors that provide medical care to the locals who live in rural villages via hospital ship that sails around the little islands.

Main Cast: Ha Ji-won as Song Eun-Jae / Kang Min-hyuk as Kwak Hyun Lee Seo-won as Kim Jae-geol / Kim In-sik as Cha Joon-young.

I really like the premise of this drama; the adrenaline and the setup, as well as the introduction of the characters, were quite interesting. I cannot ignore the excitement for the whole team in the ship and was looking forward to their very own adventure.

However, forty episodes (30 mins. per episode) were too long for this drama, my excitement dies after facing some major flaws; unmoving short love triangle, the unnecessary comeback of retard ex-lover, and some hospital politics.  I would love to like the story if they just concentrate more about life on the ship which will accomplish the story itself to be unique and appealing.

Good points are; beautiful settings of the sea and island, their service for elderly patients, family matters resolved, the friendship, teamwork and pretty faces.

The hospital ship is now to disembark. Thank you.

Verdict: 8/10
