Medical drama, Japanese medical dilemma situations of $$, doctor shortages, efficiency more important than patients, autocratic leadership, and next generation doctors watching to take over roles. Stunning strong leads - DX- female Fagile - male. Not romance. Major difference: DX is surgeon so more surgery scenes. Fragile is the behind scenes of Dtr diagnosis.

Profit hungry hospitals, one strong willed good looking doctor, ethics of doctors, and patient care is the running theme of DoctorX series & DAffairs. Where they diverge is in the area of personal love life and its complexity for anyone over the age of 40+. DA has mature romance scenes and story-line of yearning love. Both expose the competing medical goals: $$ or patients ~

Both Jdrama's depict strong females who are swimming upstream in the untidy professional world. Difference? Legal Vs. Medical. Typical Jdrama with neat, simple story-lines depicting the harsh realities of male dominated infrastructure. No silliness, no romance, just two women balancing the ethical & professional scales as they are both at different (yet the same) places in their careers. All of the side characters are likeable complimenting the two leads. Give both a try since they are not long drama's and send positive messages for the viewers.

Both are the dark-side of love or bittersweet love of men who use physical & mental abuse on women for revenge yet fall in love, proving all along that the 'submissive' was and remains in control of the Domme. Difference is endings - journey is similar - Thai or Chinese... BDSM is alive and well or in drama land sells ratings. Best part, both leading Dommes' are SMEXY, standard requirement for a worthy Domme.

Medical dramas of idealist doctors fighting the corrupt systems without loosing their souls. Doctors & teams trying to serve-help the public while battling corrupt, power hungry people and systems prevalent in the medical field.
