When Okita Kazuaki was starting out as a doctor, he was forced to resign from the hospital. He left his girlfriend Danjo Mifuyu behind and went to the US alone. 10 years go by and he comes back as a surgeon with outstanding skills to save his former teacher from illness. His teacher is none other than his ex-girlfriend’s father. In the time that Okita was away, Mifuyu had married his own read moregood friend Masao, who is now the deputy director and the heir of the hospital. To make matters worse, this friend was the one who plotted to drive him out form the hospital 10 years ago. Okita has to face all sorts of ordeals to save his teacher. But he never gives up amid the swirl of love, desire, friendship, jealousy and pride. Okita may be awkward but deals with patients with all his heart. His way of life gets the people working at the hospital to start asking themselves what real healthcare is.

    Didn't like this. Nothing new, too "soap opera" like, too many hateful characters, female lead somehow managed to be an important doctor and still be the dumb woman who doesn't get anything. Not gonna keep watching, not even for Kimura.

    Has anyone else realized that in one drama we have: Detective L, Inspector Koichi Zenigata, Prosecutor Kuryu Kohei, Section Chief Himekawa Reiko, and Detective Kameyama Kaoru? Lol. Japan definitely loves its mystery dramas.

    This sounds like another typical Kimutaku drama where he will be playing the same inspirational character as always in recent years >.< Gotta check it out anyway though...

      I miss the days when he played the darker anti-hero type characters like in Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi (A Million Stars Falling from the Sky) and Nemureru Mori (A Sleeping Forest). Well, actually I just kind of miss the Japanese 90s dramas. ;)

      Yes, I miss those darker characters, too - much more charisma and way more interesting!
