TV Review: Doctor Prisoner (2019) (Medical-Crime Drama)

Doctor Prisoner (닥터 프리즈너)
16 episodes
Namkoong Min, Kim Byong-chul
Medical-Crime Drama

After his career is sabotaged by the wealthy, a doctor gets a job at a prison seeking vengeance on those who are too powerful to be governed by the law. (Netflix Synopsis)

Doctor Prisoner was an excellent drama on so many levels. The story was exciting and well paced, with constant twists to maintain interest. The cast did an amazing job with their performances, especially Namkoong Min in the principal role. Na I-Je is ostensibly the "hero"; however, he is deliciously morally grey, since to fight the bad guys he has to be willing to cross the line himself at times. I was glued to the screen for every episode, and I liked the way the series blended medical drama and crime drama. It gets 4.5 stars from me, which I will round up to a five.
