We're starting to get a clearer picture of all the alliances we can expect from "Life" to start with, as the two new teasers focused on Ye Jin-woo (Lee Dong-wook) and Goo Seung-hyo (Cho Seung-woo) reveal the conflicts brewing. Ideals and business clash, and secrets seem plentiful in this power game with people's lives at stake.
Ye Jin-woo's teaser opens with a DOA (dead on arrival) on April 5th 2018, the last day of the person Jin-woo feels apologetic to for speaking harshly to them, which by now I'm guessing is his younger brother, Ye Seon-woo (Lee Kyu-hyung). We can already see the heroes directly collide, as Goo Seung-hyo mockingly congratulates Jin-woo for accomplishing his goals.
It is the words of Jin-woo's senior, and the text seen in the teaser that make me curious about the method, however. Joo Kyeong-moon (Yoo Jae-myung) says "I know how you feel, but isn't there another way?" while the text narration of our hero reads "In order to save, I had to live". Perhaps there are some less than morally ideal decisions to be made on both sides here.
Our menace in fine suits, Goo Seung-hyo, sees very little love from the hospital staff in his own teaser. Aside from directly accusing doctors of killing someone, he stands firm in his belief that hospitals are businesses, and employees are there to bring profit and get paid. Jin-woo expresses his suspicion over their new boss essentially being planted there by a big corporation, while Moon So-ri's Oh Se-hwa faces said boss head on about his approach.
It looks like the doctors of "Life" will not have much time to practice medicine, because power games usually take up the lion's share in Korean drama. I am currently on the 10th episode of "Secret Forest", and I'm having trouble connecting to the characters and their stakes in the story, so I'm hoping for a more personal approach from "Life", which will begin its run on July 23rd on jTBC.
