The unveiling is here for the maiden voyage of MBC‘s Hospital Ship, taking the ever popular medical K-drama genre and plopping it on the ocean with pit stops at port cities and remote islands. While SBS has been having lots of luck with medical dramas and churn them out the most, MBC hasn’t done a prime time medical drama since the not so top Medical Top Team in 2013 so the track record is pretty thin and underwhelming.
Conversely Ha Ji Won failed to resonate with her last drama The Time We Were Not in Love on SBS whereas her last big hit was with MBC in Empress Ki. I’m hoping she picked a character more suited for her style in Hospital Ship as Time Love was just a hot mess in characterization and development, plus she wasn’t the right choice for that role. The first preview for Hospital Ship is here and I like what I see, fast-paced with plenty of medical action interspersed with contemplation, and she continues to visually match well with male lead Kang Min Hyuk.
