With this episode"Doctors"takes an unlucky step in opposition to unwanted perfection- Hye-jeong is great talented, correct more or less everything, andonly ever faces resistance via mean-spirited peoplewho are either outright evil or secretly harbor a romantic crush. We are at the point where Hye-jeong's most effectivepossible flaw seems to be that she's too awesome. What came about to the sour jerk from the primary episode who engaged in petty shoplifting only forthe thrill of it?
My primaryfactor alongside this tonal circulate is that it is very boring. Precisely one sceneshows promise of dramatic tension- I used to bein brief thrown into alertness when anythinglooked as though IT wouldget it wrongyet every bit expected Hye-jeong is able to pull via correct to the end. For the explanation that Hye-jeong's complete raison d'etre is to be the top possiblephysician there ever was, I amstunned she did not relish the challenge. My most productivewager is because if Hye-jeong was once shown taking phase in this too much, we mayaccept as true with Yoon-do that she's arrogant.
Ji-hong's persona has also completely embraced the Hye-jeong-centered galaxy about which the plot revolves. He has no obvious motivation apart from to lend a hand Hye-jeong be one of the best she can be. The teacher/student part bothers me less now because I see Ji-hong as representing a more shallow archetype-the instructor so enthralled by Hye-jeong's awesomeness that of route he needs to be along with her. And asher former teacher, from Hye-jeong's perspective, he isthe top ranked doable suitor available.
AdvertisementI'm almost certainly being a tad harsh, but there is so little going on with other subplots there will now not bein point of factthe rest else to discuss. Whilstall of the other doctors have distinct personalities thus far none of them have truly done anything unlessbecome involved with minor mischief that lacks payoff. The politicking in regards tothe balanceadministration has to strike between ethicalgoodand profitability is more or less interesting, but the similar subplot displays up in just abouteachscientific drama.
It's conceivable 1may have set my criteria a tad too prime after the sturdy opening episodes of"Doctors". It is not like the drama is unwatchable or anything- the production values are fine, it's just that the loss of meaningful struggle is very, very dull. While"Doctors"has some of themost effective fonts I have e'erobserved for explaining medical terminology, a just right typeface cannottradethe overall impenetrability of dry medical terminology. Which is a gorgeoussmart metaphor for how I'm seeing the drama as an entire right now.
