He now works at the hospital ship with Kim Jae-Gul (Lee Seo-Won) who is an oriental doctor and others. Kang Min-Hyuk, such a heartthrob & Lee Seo-Won, so young yet huge potential... The same comments would hve bin given even if another ‘idol’ is named. The scene between Hyun and Seol are very poignant as they discussed the pros and cons of the latter's treatment. While some parts and actions are not clearly explained, it is deliberate attempt to be elaborated in future episodes. I can’t really tell the age differences and the character description did not elaborated on their age other than I saw HJW is a senior and more experienced doctor. Same with HJW, why they let her carry the full weight of this drama. The subject matter (underfunded hospital ship traveling around helping isolated rural communities) is interesting and gritty at times. And unlike most Korean medical dramas that tend to be "Greys Anatomy"-ish, this drama is focused primarily on the practiceof medicine. In case you've not it means making a decision when face with a few options.Song Eun-Jae then appears aboard the hospital ship. A subtle lovestory line, a massive plot of story line, there's no minus thing. has a potential of becoming great if not with the rushed ending!!! Many drama watchers do not follow kpop and really have no clue who they are. How can she torture him so badly in front of others , it's kind of insulting and get him so easily. It is already Ep 14 and my OTP have not even held hands. Teaches you lessons such as understanding loved ones and spending more time with them because you never know when they're going to leave. Hyun is mild manner and a good listener first hearing out Eun Jae’s mom and then Seol. HJW and KMY shopping, KMY crying then HJW approached him with umbrella, HJW telling KMY about her frustrations then the abrupt hug, And of course other intense scenes. Probably meant to be older just by a few years, common to see such couple. Its my take that Eun Jae and Kwak Hyun are siblings, w different moms same father. EJ is going to mentor Hyun first as his senior, then as his sister. Also, I was hesitant about the idols in the drama, but the lead guy is actually doing a decent job playing a subdued role. i just finished watching entertainer and i liked kang minhyuk acting so much..here to see him again and im glad .super intersting drama ..i like it .minhyuk looks much more mature but still attractive in this drama I really love how two of my favorite actors are in one drama(Ha Ji Won from Secret Garden & Kang Min Hyuk from Unexpected Yoi)... In other words; you can choose to watch or not to watch HS.you will have all the feels in the last episode then vola! I do appreciate some dramas which have unexpected endings, but not this type of ending. It's so cliche but i will forgive you if you give me a happy ending. He is cute and amazing, proformed well, druming and good singing. She can act by simply using her eyes and deliver the message of her character just like what she did in Empress Ki. A sigh of relief among all kdrama full of fantasies and magic nowadays. Currently rewatching Empress Ki while waiting for next week's episode. : D the house (on the island) where jae-gul invited eun-jae to have their family dinner is also the house in endless love winter sonata, where jung yoo-jin (choi ji woo) met again the blind kang jun-sang (bae yong joon). why dr song treat this could she can blame him even as a excuse for pushing him away when she know that , he has sensitive personality and he will take his words by heart.. The scene shld remind us not to take our moms for granted as this is a scene of regrets, regrets for shutting mom out while climbing the corporate ladder. @whynot, is there any writen rule anywhere that laid out the required age diference between the co stars? Hajiwon performs well for a good and confident doctor while Minhyuk can convey the warmth of the doctor. @cammie, Its exactly bc of EK that I've not been in favour of HJW return to MBC. As for JCW as a better match I find his over the top acting was just a put off. :'( I'm not saying that his acting is bad, but, it just feels a bit off with the pairing. kwak hyun is new doctor, it means he should be around 27-28 years in this they could cast JO hyun jae in this drama as a person with only 28 years old and viewrs believe it??!!! and minhyuk's acting was good enough as a new doctor. His expressions are terribly limited and he has zero chemistry with Ha Ji Won. I feel it's similar to Steven Spielberg who uses orchestra for background music. first watch one of those , then come here and suggest is "i hear your voice" is student when lee bo young is lawyer , and even their real age gap is near 12 super famous drama with high rating in korea and beloved between kdrama fans Basically I don't like donsaeng-noona romance in kdramas, but after watching the great drama "I hear your voice", I decided not to judge the drama based on that.The ending was just too unrealistic and absurd for a medical drama that has such logical sense. Ha Ji Won perfectly conveyed every emotions to the viewers with or without the surgery mask. Ep 29 and 30 were so outstanding but the episodes after that were so meh. Just when the casting was first known, we heard lots of voices tt there shld not be any romance. I was not surprised at how well he performed in this drama and why both Hajiwon and Minhyuk can show the chemistry that impresses the viewers. from HK i didnt fallow hajiwon since her pair with hyun bin (her other dramas werent my cup of tea) and i saw minhyuk in entertainer and i liked him & his acting there. And you Dr Song, you'd better accept Dr Kwak fast because we're dying here. Started watching again after skipping few episodes which was too much for me. She stays true within her character even as Gil Ra Im before. Song seems to be cold and composed but eventually loosen herself up with her HS family. @ Huntress (re: Friendly discussion) Yes, we all have different perspectives and perceptions of how people should act and I respect that and your opinion. I watched as soon as it aired Wednesday in Korean and watched again in Thai. HJW is so good in acting with her eyes, you'll really see the the type of character in every drama she portrays. This show is another work that we as fans will treasure because of her marvelous acting skills, as always. After I watched episode 20, I hate old girlfriend of Hyun so much. One of those actresses that can give different look in every character that she portrays. Now with revelation of ex's disease Kwak will also drift from SEJ. Kwak when she arrived in the same island where they kissed, to have lunch with Kim family. i know that she is under big pressure but is so pititful here. Interesting plot so far at least not a dragging story with same romance and break ups.. Going by the plot so far, guess Eun Jae cld be the sis of Hyun as Ive not come across any mention of EJ's dad (or hve I miss it). Even if minhyuk looks like her son (which many will tell u ut u need a eye checkup to say that) whats the problem. By the time u reach HJW's age a guy of minhyuk's age might look like your grandson. i love ep 7 the drama's focous was on female lead till ep 7and finally we can see some BTS of male actor too, although we stilldont know what happened to him that make fear of intubation in himbut seeing his family is new page for this drama, male actor did so much better in this ep too, and there was not any sign of that awk acting which we saw in first the intraction between male and female lead too After watching this drama I really love it. Ive fast forward scenes he came on but continue watching bc of HJW. I shall not side track into details not related to HS. However, looking at his place in the plot Ive accepted tt his acting is consistent with the drama character. I don't understand why K-dramas have a constant need of casting untalented idols and pair them up with the brilliant older actresses? The story was really great and although I couldn't love the romance, it is one of my best ever kdramas.Initially I actually questioned whether the HJW/ KMH combo work. I'm not expecting any awards given how ratings decide what is good. Kang Min Hyuk also gives his nice performance and Ha Ji Won's performance was never failed! i love ha jiwon and totally fell for kang min hyuk for his great portrayal here of a gentle and sweet doctor.. The moment idols/band boys are casted, the first question is almost always why not cast real actors instead. i didnt fallow hajiwon since her pair with hyun bin (her other dramas werent my cup of tea) and i saw minhyuk in entertainer and i liked him & his acting there. He is the best thing in her boring and super cold life. While many scenes tug my heartstrings, I really dislike the old-fashioned plot of the ex girlfriend, the unnecessary love triangle, and NOW bad men with guns on the ship. Maybe the writer's aim is not to get high ratings, or give what the audience wants to see. Very relatable and I really like the chemistry between the leads. This is my dream drama and I absolutely love the cast. He is quite the antithesis of Eun Jae’s tough persona. At end scene of ep 12 when HJW n others are tending to a patient near the bus , got swooned by the way KMH was constantly looking at her and that too was an instense gaze. The chemistry is not bad btw the 2 leads although not the best among HJW’s co-star but believable. Love Kang Min Hyuk's character, with tender and gentle love. @whynot, You claim its cos 'I do not like HJW' tt youve said what you said. By your line of reasoning its okay for me to pass rude remarks (disguised as opinion) at Kim Ee Ae? HJW isalso playing a very different role than she has ever played. I shed tears a lot and heol it's just the 8th episode. When it comes to the romantic side, Ha ji won and Kang min hyuk's act naturally. Family, love, friendship, struggles, competition and name it all. You did not disappoint me in the first 4 episodes, just as I expected. Since you have so much grevances who should partner who, who shld be the lead and tt you are tired of main lady lead is older than the supporting staff, you do hve a choice to watch something else.After watching the whole series i am really impressed how compatible they are as Dr Song and Dr Kwak. For KMH I hope he can have more lead roles if he decides to branch out into acting. Dont take this type of recognition too seriously otherwise u hve to work yourself to death to get it. I'm always tearing up even more in their last episode. this has a unique storyline that is why you will be entertained.. The blame can be placed on having seen how some idols hve bin given lead roles even when they perform poorly again and again. Hope this drama will jumpstart his acting career, getting more lead roles. HJW has again shown how she can bring out the best in her partner even if they are first timers as a lead, making them feel at ease thru her cheerful disposition. but when the news came out i was like wth is with this pairing. This drama has great potential, with a fantastic actress like Ha Ji Won and unexpectedly good chemistry with Kang Min Hyuk, complete with a cute looking second lead. Can someone please tell writer nim to read the comments here? @ HUNTER, a friendly discussion: For me, reversal of gender will be comparable to Doctor Crush. Oh, and to the people who said they felt uncomfortable about the age gap and how it wasn't going to work can suck it! It's not like Min Hyuk is a 16 year old dating a 39 year old. So happy that Ha Ji Won found such a befitting story to play. Perhaps, this is how they complement each other thru the series. Both male and female lead actors have chemistry together. Shipping them and wanted to see their relationship developed and challenged. I cld hit her below the belt & question why she being a mama of 2 teens & in her 50s partner one young enough to be her son. She's so serious, cold and closed off all the time, that makes the drama interesting as well. i wonder why its not popular between internatinal fans?? I thought that the comments are here to express personal opinions irrespective if they were good or bad.people's comments on asianwiki sometimes help me decide whether I should start a drama or not. Two reasons that made me hesitate watch this drama : 1. I didn't like Lee Seo won's role there , so it's difficult erase his image from that drama here 2. (But I'm watching live up to your name because it focus to acupuntur , not modern medical) But I read this drama has good praises, so I'll try watch it later after this drama ended that scene when kwak hyun stopped drinking to incase protect eun jae if there is any need was totally heart fluttring..i lost my heart to this couple in this scene. This drama is definitely a notch down from those two dramas. Fighting to the both of you and also to the rest of the cast and ofcourse, the superb Writer who was also behind the hit drama Hwang Jin Yi & the Director!!! Theres one drama that comes to mind that meet your age criteria of the main actress, younger than the actor.
Song Eun-Jae is burdened with responsibility over her mother and younger sibling. Her mother sometimes sends patients to the hospital where Song Eun-Jae works, which brings trouble for her. Their decisions are based on their personal experience. I think you should log in the Google account and then drag the mouse to the User rating bar.the arrow pointing to the percentage you want and click. You press it and it will ask you to put the mail and password for Facebook. Wow, impressive, especially Ha Ji Won, always the best in potrayal a strong character (the queen, a soldier and now a doctor) other actor be high ratings too like the other doctor malaysia this premiere 24 hours after original slot on channel OH! i dont care what others says..i watched the first ep and it was great..great script..great cinematography and great officially rooting for this couple too.we can see more romance in this drama Im not bothered about the romance or the leading man.
But the chemistry of the two leads in this drama is unexpectedly amazing,dr kwak and dr song nailed this drama! hope this is helpful I Love this drama until the end we will miss them for the couple and also the writer and the director of the story, I was so impressive. Why cant the writer put more scenes of them together? Are you watching the same drama we're all watching? He use the eye contact so well when he looking at the Hajiwon that can make many girl so jeaous. Watching the drama from the beginning will make you understand the real persona of which the actors portray. If you have watched the drama carefully,his character is supposed to be gentle,tender,warm and loving doctor. This is a promising drama but the only bad thing in this drama is the acting of Kang Min Hyuk.... I applaud the way senior doctor's attitude change had been shown. Wish it was real because hey what is wrong with a woman going for someone younger? But have all the other actors been on high all the time and have favourable media comments consistently.
Ha Ji Won such a great actress especially Kang Min Hyuk you nailed it and fitted with the role of Kwak Hyun, so well. Cz in Hospital Ship Kang Minhyuk's acting is nowhere near bad. The romantic scene of the couple is so beautiful and I want more. This Drama is worthwide to watch for someone who looking for drama to watch now. Cool but in a different way,in a way that it will warm your heart. He was supposed to act like a cool but cocky doctor but his acting here was like a depressed zombie with no emotion smh waaaahhh I never thought I would falll for such chemistry between the leads. I am relieved that last two episodes were without ex. Theres a word call media play when the most mundane activity of the Current hyped up actor and actresses are reported on everywhere.
her characterisation of dr Song or any other role for that matter is always effortless yet genuinely realistic & natural. Kudos Writer And ofcourse Grand Kudos to TEAM HOSPITALSHIP. I cried so hard for the last episode before I smiled at the happy ending. Moral of the story, writer nim can please some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time. The storylines are always so touching and there's more than one storyline so it doesn't get repititive. they suit their charecter really well & their chemestry is amazing.drama has annoying part like low speed progress in romance & some unneccessry scenes specially in ep 17-24 but its still enjoyable to watch.specially because of this different & unic couple . I just hope to see more romantic scenes between them in the next episodes. am a fan of Ha Ji Won and was actually disappointed when Min Hyuk was chosen as the male lead. But as I watch this drama, Min Hyuk is fine with me. I really like the plot of the thugs who attacked the hospital ship and abducted Dr Song and Dr Kwak. song compelled her senior doctor to operate, its all really touching. And I begin dislike Jae-Gul, he is a friend of Hyun and he know well that Hyun like Eun-Jae so much but he was trying to take the advantage of snatching Eun-Jae away from Hyun. things are becoming quite evident that in upcoming episodes may be Hyun is going to side with his ex even if Dr. And the important thing is i wanna see romantic between SEJ and KH again :(. I watched this drama because many people said it was fun. idk why people said the main lead like a mother-son..didn't they know 'i can hear your voice' leads also have a huge age gap but still have a chemistry between them & the drama successful.i were minhyuk, i also get this chance acting alongside HJW.. Love Love In western countries no one cares abt age gaps and most movies are blockbuster hits even with more than 10 yr age gap. Every patients help them learn more about themselves. It shows us that even the best is not perfect like Dr. We all have imperfections but it is how we manage to complement each other just like how HJW and KMY interacts. For KMY, its his time to show that he deserves to be an actor. Almost all dramas is about romance, family feud, back stabbing, business sabotage, secret births. Hjw n kmh have age difference but it doesn't show off on the screen.. I cld empathise with the part where her character Eun Jae left for HS after the death of her mom tho a few think that her action was too rash and not believable. Wow..poster.ji won surrounded by all male cast..i mean all young male casts...
Finally hospitalship ended....a story that has both the blend of sadness & happiness. Hajj and Minhyuk played this story very impressively. Given how the drama has progressed, shipping has started, the usual Kdramas exercise. Kim, Iam also happy that they remove the character of the ex gf soo that they can have a happy relationship and start dating now. HS fighting Love this drama so much especially the love team of Kang Min Hyuk and Ha Ji Won. He doesn't need to put much more effort since he is like a real life Kwak Hyun. The romance between the lead actors was so soft and warm that many people want to see again. Some Romance between leads would be icing on the cake. This is one drama where even the newest face is doing 100% justice to their character. I do not understand why Eunjae and Jaegul do not tell him the truth. I almost cried when he walked away from Eunjae and went back alone. I would like to kill you so much :( I want them together..please. @Ahmei im ha ji won fan since forever and i think kang min hyuk is her best partner after hyun bin. I like Hajiwon and Minhyuk very much after watch this drama. I just hopping that the flow is suit with my will, even i knew that this drama has finished filming and nothing will change even what much people say is opposite with this drama's flow. Very fun, this drama is very good, there is full of excitement, humor, love and warmth... Hospitalship's cast is doing justice with the characters. Nothing is new especially the part where they name a whole shipment of so called popular co-actors but ultimately feature only two main OTPs. These posters' shld read up materials on how pple can behave erratically followig the death of someone dear. As for the age gap, its appropriate here as Eun Jae is a sr doc while Hyun is a newbie. i won't put high expectation on this drama or other kdrama..i will just enjoy it so that the feeling of disappointment won't hit me too much...hahahaha... Just let those young actors/actress learn from her and all will surely prove their worth in terms of acting.
