Medical Top Team Review

Title: Medical Top Team
Genre: Medical, Romance
Episodes: 20
Broadcast period: 2013-Oct to 2013-Dec
Cast: Kwon Sang Woo, Jung Ryu Won, Joo Ji Hoon, Oh Yeon Seo, Choi Min Ho, Oh Y and Kim Young Ae.

On the day of the announcement of the Top Team at Kwanghye University Hospital, Park Tae Shin (Kwon Sang Woo) happens to be in the same hotel, and notices a waitress limp on one of her legs. The cardiologist presenting the project Seo Ju Yeong (Jung Ryeo Won) an ambitious woman, also notices the waitress, but is pushes aside by Tae Shin who does an immediate emergency treatment and brings her to the hospital. Returning to his hospital one of his favorite patients, an 8 year old girl collapses and needs surgery. When taking her to Kwanghye University Hospital, he meets Ju Yeong again, who is to take care of the patient, but when a VIP patient collapses they refuse the little girl in order to prioritize. That is when Tae Shin asks to do it himself, and the director Han Seung Jae (Joo Ji Hoon) reluctantly agrees. After saving the girl Tae Shin runs to watch the other surgery, but when Ju Yeong isn’t able to move her arm as she likes because of the accident earlier that day, Tae Shin runs to aid her, and is noticed by Seung Jae, who now wants him in the Top Team…

Wow, I can’t believe I am going to say this but I was actually disappointed in this. Maybe my expectation in a drama with Sang Woo, Ji Hoon and Ryu Won was a bit high, and it being a medical drama might also have to do with it, but I seriously felt that it took a dumb turn right at the middle. I think the start was okay, even the lead’s past was interesting, but then it just became too much about the family fighting against each other. Not only that there simply was way too much going on, too many side story stories, and halfhearted love stories that the main story was just not that interesting. I barely managed to get through it. Acting wise everyone was amazing, even Min Ho who I am not a fan of.
I can’t even recommend it to people because I have no idea which kind of people would watch it. So I don’t know.

☆☆☆ / 3 out of 5 stars
