Kim Sabu and President Do are always in constant confrontation in both episode 16 and 17. However, their fierce verbal argument at the pivotal moment of episode 17 grabbed got the most attention as the rating peaked at 29.7%.
We also got some intense medical scenes in both episodes with Chairman Shin’s operation and an emergency operation performed by new bromance in town, Dong Joo and In Beom.
Conflict and blood aside, the best thing about episode 16 and 17 are the heart thumping scenes of our Dong Joo and Seo Jung. The two lovebirds still tried to hide their blooming romance but heck, who are they going to fool? We are talking about peculiar people in Doldam hospital where everyone has the ability to see right through some facades.
Good news is, love wins over pizza and we got to see our couple acts like they’re in a relationship. So, all we can ask is, “Sunbae, how does resting your head on Dong Joo’s pacific ocean wide shoulder feel?”
Awwww, you two!
