[mslee's thoughts] Episode 4 Medical Top Team - A Glimpse of Their Past

From last episode, the surgery proceeded as scheduled. SBJ, a son of another wealthy family who has ties with the Chairman needed to be saved immediately. The team had a hard time operating and new complications kept turning up. 

While PTS is I think the lead surgeon, he trusted SJY's decision to operate her way. This brought courage and confidence to JY as a doctor. She knew if she did this correctly, somehow her efforts and abilities will be recognized by her peers. I like how PTS seemed to show JY that he knows she is an excellent surgeon, too. They started off in a wrong impression but he is correcting them, reading her personality. 

While in the OR, the staff was amazed at how PTS works. He is a warm person, not afraid to show his feelings, emotions. Either happy or ecstatic and he tells what he wants directly. When the surgery was finished, he prayed that the heart beats again, and they looked at him in wonder and in a new way. He is  the kind of doctor who is very attached to his patients and I think the first time they are seeing someone like him. Even JY was amazed or bewildered of what he was doing then.

After that, PTS thanked his colleagues for the team work. He knew, the ordeal was done not by him or JY alone but by all the staff in there. He also conveyed his feelings of appreciation to JY. While she was washing her hands, she thought of what happened in the OR and felt happy and it brought her confidence back because PTS trust her. 

PTS charisma made Choi Ah Jin looked at him in a fascinated way. I guess her infatuation just leveled up which makes Kim Sung Woo even jealous. But their friendship and closeness remained, he just wished she will look differently towards him. I find their scenes refreshing and cute. Adds more life to the drama.

A glimpse of their past...

With the success of the surgery, HSJ invited SJY to a dinner and she was surprised when he brought her to Chairman's house. I am not sure if she knew the relationship. She was first anxious but he said it's nothing. He wants the Chairman know of her hard work, but she told him, that PTS should have joined them.

This is HSJ way of showing her his support. The Chairman was happy because the project between two groups will push through. But an uninvited guest arrived. HSJ mom. Drunk and whining and making a scene in front of the Chairman, about all things like mistreating her and only recognizing her son's potential. In the end, the dinner ruined, HSJ dragged his mom out, to stop her. SJY was left with the chairman, silent. HSJ disappointed with his mother but he can't do anything about it.

PTS visited the clinic and saw improvements already. He was so happy to be back there. I think he is more enthusiastic being a doctor who treats patients and interacting with them more than being a surgeon. His warmth is very heart melting. But his visit turned into something that troubled him and brought back scars from his past. A man who was admitted in the ward was the man who bullied, mistreat, abused him when he was a child. And this made him remember his trauma, his fears. A past that he surely wanted to forget.

Choi Ah Jin came across an old file of article written about Seo Joo Young. The article was from 8 years ago and it stated how she was and her principles back then. A girl who cruelly, lonely will go ahead without minding what people around her say, and achieve her dreams. PTS saw and read the article. He was interested in what he found about her. 

PTS convinced SJY to join the team. He praised her work and said that he likes to work with her. The thing with PTS, he is vocal in convincing her and trusting her worth. He even reminded her of what she used to be 8 years back. A person who will do anything even alone without a care to what others may say about her and achieve her goal. I think this somehow made a change in her decision, She felt PTS believing in her and cheered her to go on.

What's good about PTS, on the day of the launching of the team, he stopped by and waited for SJY. He had a feeling she is considering his words. He was right. He met her and  gave her a paper flower. he left her there knowing she will change her mind. 

Even late SJY made it to the place where the event was. her chief, Dr. Jang was bewildered by her actions, but she didn't care. Both PTS and HSJ are smiling.

But of course, the wonderful atmosphere was easily disrupted when a phone call came and the patient, SBJ was in critical condition. PTS decided to open his body again. The team was anxious and in a panic, when the heart stopped beating.

A nerve wracking ending episode.

    1. psssstt Senpai, is that you... kekekekeke oiii Senpai, you have 4 a.k.a and you chose to be "Admin" here ..otttookeeee Sunbae will recognize you....kekekeke...:DDD
      Sunbae this is the infamous Flaming Shawol a.k.a MTT Soompi thread very own Fujiwara Mayu, with her trademark "nice mslee" kekekeke :DD

      Senpai, my friend found 2 clips of JJH as a musician, so if its permissible at the thread, please do share there.
      He sings in English, perrrfeeccttlyy...... otoookeee <3<3

      Will be back orbiting your Flamingho in 3 weeks OK Senpai... meanwhile.. take some time to gaze at the blue sky Senpai kekekeke :DDD

  2. hello! thank you. it's done hurriedly. lol!!! do i know you from soompi perhaps?:))

    1. dear Sunbae, "Where there's a will there's a way" kekeke..when I was reading your recap earlier I remembered that Ive commented somewhere in YT in an MTT video, but I forgot where, then I remembered the video was really clear and had Korean titles, and then I remembered that MBC Drama has official clips in YouTube which is much easier to see.. BANZAI ! Saankyu a gazillion Sunbae, for the time being your recap, screencaps and YT MBCdrama will be enough for me.

      Sunbae, Im holding on to KSW's word with full faith in Arirang's MTT Showcase that : one, "the script was so good !" and two "MTT will make you happy in this fall". The first clip that I had to see (even though my whole heart and hand is pulling me toward our Minho<3<3's clip hahaha), is the operation room clip. I just had to see and confirm it, and even though short, I am gladly satisfied with a deep breathe.
      Sunbae, I feel cursed to have ER and Greys Anatomy rooting so deep in my brain, that even though its been a while I watched them, those two are my benchmark. This is a serious Medical Drama, Sunbae, with legit brand new sophisticated set. Like I said in my comment, a surgical team is an ensemble Sunbae. Even though the end product that we see has already been heavily edited, and so also depends on the editing team, but when a member of the ensemble even just looks out of place, lack of involvement, concentration, action-reaction, chemistry, etc, and then its not a "great" ensemble anymore. And whatever happens out of there will arguably wont matter as much, cause the title cant live to its expectations.
      I d like to praise KSW (and everybody elses reactions of course, and our Dr JRW is AWWWESSOOME!) at that scene where he lets go his support to the heart. Some may say, that hes not confident despite his credentials, but I say, though in this dramaland, its realistic, its like the first time he's testing or gauging and feeling the "layout" and confirming it with his own experience and he lets go the first time but he gain confidence for the second time. I thought this part was brilliantly written. But then again, I am just a common viewer with no medical training.

      I need to love this drama Sunbae, I cannot not love it head over heels, not when our Minho<3<3 is doing sooo well here. He's acting two completely different roles here, and aces both of em. Im so PROUD of him. Minho Fighting !

      And its not possible anymore for me not to like our Miss Bubbly Dimples OYS..kekekeke... ottokeeee OYS can fully .. acrobat her face like that when her banana was taken away..hahahah... and also.. OYS hold her banana.. like me ...bwahahahaha :DD
      But, now that OYS has fainted twice, my instinct says, its not simply just a simple faint. (The one in the operation room actually really upsets me, and I was surprised she didnt even was put on probation for that). And if it turns out that way, it will be an interesting dorky adorable and worrying part of the story, and I hope this will somehow end with her reciprocating our Minho's affection.. my head is already full with possibilities kekekekeke :DDD

      I also hope your prediction is true Sunbae, that KSW and JJH is in fact brothers. that'll be really interesting to watch.


    2. Sunbae, I have a suggestion (read : desperate request :DDD), can you please at maybe after eps 6 next week or eps 8, write something like a character growth analysis (OK that sound weird haha) of our JRW.
      I remember theres a character layout at page 1 Soompi thread, and I was wondering how you thought about JRW so far. And particularly her relationship with JJH, otoke. Cause, she confides in him, sulk (half blaming) to him, she lets him pat her shoulder, she "obeys" him willingly, or so it seems, I always felt their warmth together, she has "that look" at him... what does it actually means. Well, just if youre inspired OK Sunbae.

      Will tune here again, next ... Saturday or Sunday cause youre recapping back to back 5 and 6 right Sunbae ? Saaankyu again and a gazillion more again Sunbae .

      But take time to smell the roses OK Sunbae... Anyeeeongggg *wavesss*

  3. will try! hahahaha..... ah internet keeps lagging i can't watch live! ottoke???!!!

    thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts...:))
