This year we’ve had police K-drama Live and now comes medical K-drama Life, not to be confused though both are squarely in the two most popular drama genres. I figure Life will be a quality product so I haven’t been following along as much with the filming and promos, and this is a good time to catch up with character stills and a substantive preview being released. Starring Jo Seung Woo, Lee Dong Wook, Won Jin Ah, Moon So Ri, and Yoo Jae Myung, Life looks serious (very serious) and sleek, with plenty of hospital and surgery scenes with death and anxiety looming. The two male leads are coming off successful last dramas, Jo Seung Woo with Secret Forest and Lee Dong Wook in Goblin, and this time they look to be at odds (in medical principle, I guess) while working at the same university hospital. Life comes from the PD of Live Up to Your Name and Dear My Friends, with the script from the writer of Secret Forest who just won Best Script at the 2018 Baeksang Awards. Talk about talent upon talent, excited for this drama coming on July 23rd after Miss Hammurabi.
