Plot

Donoue General Hospital runs into a budget deficit, even though the doctors drive expensive imported cars and live an outlandish lifestyle. Office manager Momoi finds surgeon Kosuke Sagara (Ikki Sawamura) through a medical website. Kosuke Sagara arrives at the hospital and tells the director of the general hospital (Yoko Nogiwa) to decide on his pay after watching his work. Kosuke Sagara informs the hospital that he had previously quit his job at a university hospital and taken a year sabbatical.

While touring Donoue General Hospital, Kosuke Sagara observes surgeon Kazue Minagawa (Ran Ito) and Suguru Moriyama (Masanobu Takashima) taking part in operation involving a patient with pancreatic cancer. During the procedure, the patient's health deteriorates. Dr. Minagawa and Moriyama are shaken by the change. Kosuke Sagara enters the operation room.

At night, the condition of the patient changes ...

Shing This was such an excellent series that gets better as it goes on. This series has a great story and a great cast of characters. Each of the episodes feature a unique story and each one is pretty emotional and deep.

The casting of Ikki Sawamura as the lead character was a great move and he carries the main character pretty well. Likewise the same could be said of the casting of Manami Higa as the main female lead and love interest. Those two characters had such great chemistry.

Little disappointed that its only 8 episodes long but the series is still excellent

Mike I'm quite disappointed that this show ended after only 8 episodes, this is something I could have watched for a very long time.

iam Educational and eye opener

anonymous great drama... but the ending's not quite an ending that i did not realise it's the ending... kind of disappointed with the ending but it's a great drama nevertheless, very refreshing..

rizal Good drama and you just have a look at the rating, 18.5% !

Guess Who Dr. Kosuke Sagara is one cool doctor. Dr. Kosuke Sagara is a kind doctor to his patients, he also has a darker side, using sometimes questionable means to punish colleagues who have forgotten their duties due to greed. --Tokyohive
