Whether Hospital Ship sinks or sails will rest of Ha Ji Won‘s shoulders, much as I am loathe to put so much pressure on her. If the writing sucks I will feel like she let herself down by picking this drama, and if the casting and the youngsters around her don’t deliver then she stumbled in not being able to pull out after being surrounded by a relatively untried team. The reality is that she can’t carry an entire drama by herself though the second preview certainly tries it best to make it a Ha Ji Won one-woman show, not that I’m complaining. I love her to pieces but it’s hard to make her both the teacher and student in a medical drama where the practice of medicine is made all the harder on a sailing ship with limited resources. I do like the J-dorama feel of the teasers and remain optimistic this one will be a smooth sailing.
