Young Yim visits Hye Young's office again. Hye Young finally performs a blood-type test for Young Yim, and the result is good! The baby’s blood type is ‘O’ which is Young Yim’s husband’s blood type. As a result, Young Yim is pleased and goes home with her husband happily!
In the apartment complex where Hye Young lives, Kyung Woo and Sang Shik see Hye Young at the parking lot and greet her. (Since she is a new employee, she doesn’t know that most of the doctors live in the same apartment complex).
Kyung Woo: Doctor, do you also live here?
Hye Young: Good morning!
(Jae Suk appears)
Jae Suk: It’s so cold! Good morning! (talk to Hye Young) Did I scare you? Don’t you know that our medical center has developed this business complex so that it is easier for management? That is my apartment unit. See you in the hospital.
After Jae Suk and Kyung Woo left, Hye Young tells Sang Shik not to pay so much attention to her pregnancy.
Suh Jin comes to the medical center to talk to Hye Young. Nurse Soo and Young Mi see Suh Jin talking to Hye Young. They go back to the nurse station where Jae Suk and Kyung Woo are sitting by a desk:
Soo: Are they dating?
Jae Suk: You have so many things to do. Why do you care about other peoples’ business?
Soo: That’s my intuition.
At the moment, Hye Young asks Kyung Woo to go with her to visit patients.
Soo: Does he have lots of money?
Young Mi: Who?
Soo: Dr. Ahn.
Young Mi: He doesn’t have money.
Soo: Are you dating him?
Young Mi: No!
Soo: Are you dating Dr. Ahn?
Soo (looking at the computer terminal): Dr. Ahn must be in love now and that’s why he is looking for wedding rings on internet. Why are these rings so expensive?
Although Young Mi doesn't admit that she is dating Kyung Woo. Her obvious behavior as well as she likes one of rings on the webpage Kyung Woo was on make Jae Suk and Nurse Soo laugh.
The medical center will soon go through Hospital Evaluation and employees are preparing for meeting the requirements of evaluations.
A heavily bleeding woman is sent to the medical center by an ambulance. Doctors decide to perform Hysterectomy (removing the womb) to save the pregnant woman’s life. However, this woman’s husband refuses to sign the surgery approval form because he won’t have a son if his wife’s womb is removed. Hye Young requests the husband to sign immediately to save the pregnant woman’s life. As a matter of fact, this woman divorced before and has already had 2 daughters. She and her current husband keep this secret which her husband’s family doesn’t know.
Next, Hye Young performs a surgery on a pregnant woman having the Placenta Previa problem. This woman is pregnant with a twin baby. However, during the surgery, the first baby is delivered OK, but the next baby has severe Ichthyosis, a skin-infectious disease, and he could only live for 2 months. The husband asks Hye Young and Sang Shik to keep this secret from his wife.
In the cafeteria, Sang Shik, Hye Young, and Jae Suk chat:
Jae Suk: We will have a welcome party later. Do you have time for it?
Hye Young: Who do you welcome?
Jae Suk: You!
Hye Young: How come it’s you to arrange the welcome party for me?
Jae Suk: I am asking you. I am so glad that you come to work here! It seems that it means nothing to you.
Hye Young: Yes.
Jae Suk: Impolite girl! You haven’t changed your cold-hearted attitude!
(talk to Sang Shik) Our relationship is such that she even knows that I have triangle-shaped moles at my back.
Hye Young: You dare to mention that moles!
Sang Shik: Do you both go to the same swimming and fitness center?
Jae Suk: No. She is my classmate in the kindergarten, elementary school, and high school.
Sang Shik: Ah!
Jae Suk: Those memories are still fresh in my mind …
Hye Young: You are so reminiscent!
Jae Suk: She appeared right away whenever I was taken advantage by others and cried!
Hye Young: Are you proud of it? If you cause trouble here and ask me to take care of it for you, I definitely will end my friendship with you!
Jae Suk: Anyway, she has always been my savior!
Sang Shik: (burst into a laughter)
Earlier the woman who underwent the Hysterectomy surgery is dying. Due to her 2 daughter’s crying, the secret of her being married before is revealed before her mother-in-law. Her mother-in-law and her mother quarrel in the lobby of the medical center which attracts people’s attentions. The loud quarrel makes the 2 children cry and then Sang Shik brings these 2 children to his office to cheer them up, which is observed by the Hospital Evaluation team.
The nurse Young Mi and Kyung Woo secretly meet at the stair between floors. Kyung Woo informs Young Mi that he doesn’t feel well and therefore he couldn’t meet her in the evening. At this moment, Jae Suk happens to come down from upper floor and spot Young Mi and Kyung Woo’s being together.
Jae Suk: What are you doing here?
Young Mi: I … I … I use this stairs because the elevator is too slow.
Kyung Woo: Ah … phone call … where is my cell phone ..
Jae Suk: Huh … Who would eat you up even you are dating here! Both of you will go to the welcome party for Hye Young and you know the place, right?
Young Mi & Kyung Woo: Yes!
The twin baby’s mother insists to take a look at the baby. Sang Shik has to tell the mother that the baby has passed away. Upon hearing the terrible fact of the baby’s situation, the mother asks to see the baby for the first and last time. The husband has to lie to his wife that the baby died in his arm peacefully. They embrace each other and cry painfully. The Hospital Evaluation team witnesses this sad scene. Afterwards, the husband privately asks Sang Shik to try best to accompany his baby son so that the baby could die peacefully. He asks Sang Shik and Hye Young to keep this secret for him.
When Suh Jin is accompanying the Hospital Evaluation Team down the escalator, he sees that Hye Young putting her hand on her stomach and she seems to have cramps. In the meantime, Sang Shik also notices Hye Young’s uncomfortable situation, and he brings Hye Young to see a doctor.
In Episode 2, Jisuk only appears in a few scenes. One of the scenes is important revealing that Jae Suk and Hye Young have been classmates since kindergarten.
Some may wonder why Jisuk hasn’t appeared in many scenes in the first 2 episodes.
From my understanding of the introduction of characters, Wang Jae Suk is a key character between the romance of Hye Young and Sang Shik.
Wang Jae Suk is a playboy as well as a Catholic. The Catholic doctrines object to “abortion” and therefore Jae Suk rejects the idea of aborting a baby. However, being a playboy, he has a one-night-stand with a college student – Woo Young Hee. Young Hee finds out she is pregnant so she comes to the medical center wanting to prove that Jae Suk is the father of the baby. Then, she decides to abort the baby, which is against Jae Suk’s belief. It is not clear if Jae Suk is the father of the baby, but Jae Suk certainly will be in a controversial position.
This is a very challenging character for Jisuk to play. I could foresee that many TV viewers will post messages on this drama’s homepage at SBS to discuss this controversial role in the future. Nonetheless, Jae Suk will mature out of his playboy life style to become a responsible man.
Moreover, Jae Suk’s close friendship with Hye Young will make him once again become a controversial person involving in Hye Young’s romance. He is confused who is Hye Young’s baby’s father. Since he has been Hye Young’s longtime friend, his religious belief and friendship with Hye Young make him try his best to protect Hye Young’s baby.
I am sure that Jisuk will portray his role well like before. Fighting!!
Ahn Sun Young plays the Chief Nurse Soo.
Actress Hyun Young (현영) plays the role Lee Yoon Jin.
Actor Park Jae Hoon (박재훈) plays the twin baby’s father.
