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.

    I love love love KimuTaku, but this show is super boring. His character has more chemistry with Shibata.

    Kimura's magic smile once again worked on me.
    I'm surprised to enjoy it that much, considering what fellow MDLers already said about it being a drama that follow a well-known plot line. I guess the great cast do a lot, Kimura ahead. Okita, Shibata and Igawa are by far my favourite characters, but i'm really looking forward to the path Masao will take, as I don't really understand this character at that point of the story.

    As much as I liked this pairing in Pride, I agree with some of the comments. I'm not feeling them here. I wish there was a way for Okita to end up with Shibata instead :(

      Plus it wouldn't make sense for the way these people are written to break up a marriage over a romance that was finished 10 yrs ago. As far as chemistry goes, I feel it in spades between Dr O and Nurse S. Even during the flashbacks that romance looked tepid at best, nothing like when he kisses her eyebrow in Pride!

    Am I the only one who is hoping the drama surprises me and has Okitasan fall in love with the head nurse?
