Interesting mix of Suspense + Medical genres

I just finished watching this drama, all episodes in one day, and I have to say, I'm impressed.

I'm no newbie to medical nor suspense genres, I've watched plenty of korean medical dramas and loved them. But this drama, was somehow different. Yes, there are many similarities where each episode talks about one of the patients that the female lead has. But besides that, there's also suspense involving a stalker who seems to know everything about the female lead. He harasses her in various ways that it really creeped me out. Makes you wonder why he was going to such an extent to harass her when there seems to be no apparent reason for it.

As for the female lead herself, I could see her change throughout the drama as she tried to take care of her patients' personal needs, rather than it being just strictly medical. Though, I was annoyed at times with the way she dealt with the stalker at the start, but now that I think about it, she wasn't in much of a power to do anything about it either. If I was her, I would have ran straight to the police because my life is more important than my career but oh wells, I'm not her.

This drama had pretty good character development, though I do think the last episode was rushed. This drama covered a variety of different kinds of patients' stories, including one of a trans. I never knew that even going to a hospital can be torture to trans people.

Overall, I feel this drama is worth a watch if you like the medical genre with some suspense. I decided to watch this on a whim when I saw that it was fully subbed and I ended up enjoying the story.

SPOILERS ALERT





















Something that I disliked about this drama would be:
- While she was being harassed by this stalker, the General Secretary was claiming that all the problems lied with the doctor herself, which I thought was completely ridiculous. There's so many CCTVs and yet they couldn't even bother to get to the bottom of this.

- The way they dealt with the stalker. I gotta admit, my impression of him changed after final episode, but still, I don't believe that all bad guys become good just because of their pitiful backgrounds.

Dear Patient- Kizuna no Karute was very much unassuming to me when I first started it, but it certainly picks up from the end of episode 1, and I really enjoyed the progression from this point onwards (I would encourage watching the drama in one go).

Each episode is interesting and some even touch on thought-provoking topics, if you'd like. I appreciated that there was some connection between characters and stories too, and I think the suspense was incorporated well. The slight chilling undertone was also a good touch.
