Korean Drama - New Heart
Another good drama that i have finished watching awhile ago is "New Heart" but i had no time to write about it till now as i was busy watching other new dramas. For those who enjoy watching "Surgeon Bong Dal Hee", this would be the drama for you :> I was also a huge fan of the drama "Surgeon Bong Dal Hee" and enjoyed watching "New Heart" although i still prefered "Surgeon Bong Dal Hee". "New Heart" was very popular when it was shown in Korea from December 2007 to end February 2008 and the OST is also very nice. The main character in the drama Lee Eun Sung acted by actor Ji Sung. This is his first drama after his 2 year military service and he has made a successful comeback into the spotlight with this MBC drama. I read online that there are plans to make "New Heart 2".
"New Heart" is about the growth and sufferings of the heart surgeons who work in the thoracic surgery department. Eun Sung graduated from a newly established medical school in the provinces. He applies for a job at the hospital and has high hopes of becoming a great doctor. Nam Hye Suk (Kim Min Jung)graduated at top of her medical school. She is an absolute fundamentalist but starts to show her humane side once she gets to know Eun Sung. The problem is Choi Kang Gook (Jo Jae Hyun) just became the new head of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. He believes that only doctors can save peoples' lives and is a genius but he is also a stubborn surgeon who does not care for hospital policies and politics. Gang-guk's pride is hurt as only two interns, apply to work in his department. Neither satisfy his standards. Eun Sung is a below average intern from a lesser known university in the countryside, whereas Hye Suk is a top student, but her being female apparently is a problem. After many complications, they are finally accepted to the department, but the warm-hearted Eun Sung and over conscientious Hye Suk clash over everything.
One day, a famous actor Lee Dong Gwon is admitted into the Hospital for arrhythmia surgery. He immediately falls for Hye Suk, who is his classmate from elementary school. He later gets jealous when he sees that Eun Sung and Hye Suk are getting closer to one another.
