girlfriday: What? Is Third Ward going through Round FOUR of hero-swapping?
javabeans: What’s wrong with it, that it can’t hold onto a hero? Cha Seung-won → Uhm Tae-woong → Kim Seung-woo and now Oh Ji-ho?
girlfriday: No, he can’t actually be a replacement for Kim Seung-woo!
javabeans: That would be a terrible replacement.
girlfriday: It would be like taking away your steak and replacing it with a gardenburger.
javabeans: You mean like those horrifying Boca burgers that taste like charbroiled beef, when none of those things are true?
girlfriday: Don’t get me wrong. I love veggies. I just don’t like my veggies masquerading as meat.
javabeans: OH wait! Apparently Oh Ji-ho isn’t being swapped in for Kim Seung-woo, but will play the rival doc. Oh I see, it’s not a replacement meal, but a contest.
girlfriday: Not much of one.
javabeans: Talk about a skewed rivalry. Y’know, since this is an East-versus-West drama, with Western science goin’ up against Oriental medicine.
girlfriday: But… it’s about neurosurgery.
javabeans: Uh… West all the way, dude. No way you’re going to cure my brain tumor with some crushed deer antler juice stewed in essence of seahorse.
girlfriday: Right? I’m not sure there are enough herbs in all of Asia to keep that saw from hurting when it grinds through your skull.
javabeans: So Oh Ji-ho plays the warm-hearted Oriental doc (why is that a thing in dramas?)… which must mean Kim Seung-woo is the cold-hearted Western medicine dude with the painkillers and fancy machines. I pick him.
girlfriday: Ooh ooh me! *raises hand* I pick Painkiller Man too!
