In the episode, the young patient, Yoon Na Yeon (played by Go Won Hee), had to go into surgery after she submitted a tissue transplant application. While the surgery was deemed successful, Yoon Na Yoons health suddenly deteriorated and she was in critical condition. Although the members of the top team hurried to her, her heart stopped. Kim Sung woo held on to hope and desperately performed CPR, but despite his efforts, her heart did not start. In the end they had to announce her time of death. 

At that moment, Kim Sung Woo said, I didnt even get a chance to tell her Im sorry, and began to cry as the other top team members could only watch. 

However, fellow top team member Choi Ah Jin (Oh Yeon Seo) revealed that she had told Yoon Na Yeon before her surgery that Kim Sung Woo actually did like her, so that Yoon Na Yeon went into surgery knowing how Kim Sung Woo really felt.

SHINee's Choi Minho Unfazed By His Bandmate Key's Harsh Criticism Of His Acting, Admits He Struggled On 'To The Beautiful You'

To The Beautiful You, Choi Minho, SHINee

SHINee's Choi Minho Unfazed By His Bandmate Key's Harsh Criticism Of His Acting, Admits He Struggled On 'To The Beautiful You' Singer Choi Minho of the five-man South Korean RB act SHINee laughed off negative comments band member Key’s made about his acting. What's the big deal about an insult or two between bandmates?

Singer Choi Minho of the five-man South Korean RB act SHINee laughed off negative comments band member Key's made about his acting on Wednesday's episode of the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) television show "Radio Star."

"I don't think much about it," Minho said on Tuesday's episode of MBC's "Medical Top Team."

"We're close friends, so I think it's completely fine to say something like that in a joking manner."

Yet, the 21-year-old actor admitted that he struggled with his role on the 2012 Seoul Broadcasting System drama "To The Beautiful You."

"My acting then was one out 10 points," Minho said.

Minho starred alongside Sulli of the K-pop girl group f(x) and actor Lee Hyun Woo in "To The Beautiful You."

The Korean drama, which ran for 16 episodes, revolves around an American girl living in the US, played by Sulli, who sees a track and field competition on television and falls in love with one of the competitors, Cha Eun Gyul, played by Minho.

The series is a remake of the 2006 Taiwanese program "Hanazakarino Kimitachihe" and the 2007 Japanese show "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" and its 2011 follow-up, "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e 2011."

Yura of the four-member Girl's Day made her acting debut on "To the Beautiful You" as another fan of Minho's character.

Last year, she raved about the experience to Star News.

"I love acting. I think it fits me," Yura said after shooting her first scenes. "If I get to have a chance, I want to work as both a singer and an actress."

The chemistry for the show among the principal actors reportedly came together as soon as the first table read, one member of the production crew told eNEWS.

"Already the actors are coming together tightly and giving their all to make a flawless drama," the source said following the reading.

"We believe the combination of the younger actors' passion and the experience of the adult actors will give birth to a great production."

Kang Se-chan (Choi Daniel) tried to persuade Jeong-ho but he explained his needy situation and said, "I can't go to school and I won't be able to go to college either so I might as well start making money now. I won't go over the bad side".

Kang Se-chan seemed to have earned a great learning here and ripped the letter of resignation he was going to submit.

Class 2 of grade 2 managed to graduate to grade 3 all together according to Jeong In-jae's (Jang Nara) wish.
