TV Review: Life (2018) (Medical Drama)

Life (라이프)
16 episodes
Medical Drama

At Korea's top university medical center, ideals and interests collide between a patient-centered ER doctor and the hospital's newly-appointed CEO. (Synopsis)

Life was a drama that didn't immediately grip me but in which I became more invested once we were a few episodes in. A few minor things irked me, such as how easy it seemed to be for all the doctors to keep gathering for meetings, apparently leaving no one to deal with patients. But those were minor niggles. In terms of the characters, I thought Gu Seung-hyo had the most interesting arc in the series, as we saw the most change in him as different events took place. This is not the best drama to watch for Korean language practice due to all the medical terminology, but if you enjoy medical dramas or dramas involving corporate power struggles, Life is worth a watch. It gets 4 stars from me.
