Highlights and random thoughts
When there are optimist, someone can certainly let go of being a pessimist. In this kind of frustrating events, enlightenment is what they need. To be more humane, to be more caring.
An Dae Gil, a student doctor who thought he is too good to stay and be bullied to doing what he thinks is beneath him as a doctor or being scolded from not having the stomach inside the operating room walked out from the hospital only to realize the extreme situation outside.
Then a man who was hurt from falling debris, the same one who saved a mute child is being forced to die outside the hospital, thanks to Woo Jin's cowardliness as a doctor. If not for Hae Sung, he would not be able to get a surgery to at least stop the bleeding inside. No blood for transfusion but he proceeded the surgery with the consent of the man himself. He wants to take a chance, to live if lucky. The President almost stopped the operation but Hae Sung guaranteed and surprisingly, Dae Gil guaranteed as well, He owed that man so much. He was the one who took the blame for his youth misconducts. The man was imprisoned for his crime of stealing.
I want to think that Woo Jin decided to take robotic surgery because of the mistake he did to Hae Sung's mother. As a human, he is prone to mistakes. Maybe through robot surgery, mistakes can be lessen because it is done through machine and computers. Still, he should come out on the open and apologized to Hae Sung if only to resume lost friendship. I see that he is so guilty that he cares towards Hae Sung.
I think his worth as a doctor is really appreciated, only their principles are coming form different directions.
Hae Sung's dedication as a doctor who wants to save lives is remarkable. Of course, there is limitation particularly when tolls and medical supplies have run out, but to at least perform damage control to save a patient for the time being will help a lot and buy some time until proper surgery can be done again. Hae Sung is not only passionate but intelligent.
As for Ddol Mi, she is seeing Woo Jin in new eyes. Not the old Woo Jin who saved her, recklessly as a doctor. One of the most intense scene was when she talks of the patient hearing Woo Jin saying it is not possible to give him treatment and just wait for his death. [something like that]. It's really frustrating and pityful at the same time to hear such words.
D-day is as real as it can get to showing the reality of what can happen during natural disaster. Hope is the only thing every one can cling onto. Because without hope, darkness will prevail.
