Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 15

The end is nigh, but it’s hard to tell whether a fairy-tale happy ending is in the cards for anyone, even Cinderella. There’s a lot at stake and a lot to lose even as romantic feelings grow stronger, bonds become tighter, and true intentions reveal themselves. Major decisions and sacrifices have to be made to protect what’s dear and beloved, but the repercussions remain uncertain.

 
EPISODE 15 RECAP

Bodyguard Lee enters the Haneul Group boardroom and stands beside Hwa-ja at the head of the table. He introduces himself, and the board members murmur at the sight of the new major shareholder.

At the hospital, Hyun-min and Seo-woo sit with grave expressions on their faces as their grandpa lies motionless. Suddenly, Ji-woon arrives with Ha-won trailing behind him, and states that he’ll get tested to see if he’s a match for Grandpa Kang’s liver transplant.

Back at the boardroom, Hwa-ja declares that the reinvention of Haneul Group requires new leadership in the form of Bodyguard Lee, Chairman Kang’s most trusted employee, who would be the perfect choice.

Ji-woon gets his blood drawn, and reveals to Ha-won that on his first day at Sky House, Grandpa Kang told him he had no knowledge of his mother, but it turns out Grandpa Kang had kicked her out of Sky House. Ji-woon was angered by that and never planned on associating with anyone from Sky House again.

But since he’s here now, he’s going to directly ask Grandpa Kang all his questions like Ha-won suggested. He asks her to stay by his side until then, but Ha-won doesn’t want to get involved in family matters. Ji-woon makes her hold onto his belongings so she can’t leave him.

After getting examined, Ji-woon unexpectedly finds Hyun-min and Seo-woo waiting. He’s not used to his cousins being there for him and tells them to leave, but instead, they stubbornly sit on either side of him on the bench, refusing to budge. Funnily enough, all three Kang boys sit in the same exact position. When asked if he came because of Ha-won, Ji-woon answers with a no; he came to save Grandpa Kang. Ha-won watches amusedly as the boys scratch their heads in unison, clearly cut from the same cloth.

After the test, the doctor tells Ji-woon that Grandpa Kang spoke of him frequently and felt the most apologetic towards him. Ji-woon returns to his grandpa’s hospital room and says he has something to ask about and is willing to listen to what Grandpa Kang has to say. “I’ll forgive you in Mom’s stead, so wake up,” Ji-woon adds.

The Kang boys all head out separately. Hyun-min runs into Hwa-ja and Bodyguard Lee in the parking garage and pointedly remarks that the two seem busier after Grandpa Kang collapsed. Hwa-ja makes a false excuse about searching for potential donors, and a glimmer of concern crosses her face when Hyun-min informs her that Ji-woon got tested. She says Hyun-min can leave everything to her now, but he doesn’t trust her in the slightest, so he’ll be doing no such thing.

Ha-won tries to return Ji-woon’s belongings to him so she can finally leave, but he’s adamant that she return to Sky House and stay by his side until Grandpa Kang wakes up. “You want to be by my side, too, don’t you? I know you well enough to know that,” Ji-woon says.

Ha-won tries to dodge the subject and walk away, but his apology brings her to a halt. He doesn’t believe anything she said that day she left Sky House and urges her to stay, whatever her reasons may be. Ji-woon embraces a tearful Ha-won from the back.

In his room, Hyun-min can’t bring himself to call Hye-ji. In light of Grandpa Kang’s health emergency, Seo-woo’s manager went ahead and canceled all of Seo-woo’s concerts, even delaying the release of his new album. Thanks to Ji-woon’s surprise appearance, Seo-woo’s feeling optimistic that Grandpa Kang will recover.

Ha-won hesitantly returns to Sky House and determines that while she’s here, she’ll sort out her feelings and break up with Ji-woon when the time comes. Ji-woon reflects on Ha-won’s urgent plea that prompted him to return to his grandpa and try and save him. He holds up a photograph of his mother and wonders if he did the right thing by coming back.

Good news: The test results are out, and Ji-woon is a match. Bad news: He’s allergic to general anesthesia. The doctor warns that there’s a possibility that his body will go into shock during the operation; in the worst case scenario, he could even die. Ji-woon must decide whether or not to proceed with the surgery.

Ji-woon announces with a smile to Ha-won and Bodyguard Lee that the surgery’s a go. Ha-won’s relieved, but Bodyguard Lee appears uneasy. Back at Sky House, Seo-woo excitedly alerts Hyun-min and Ms. Beolgyo that Ji-woon will go through with the surgery. Ms. Beolgyo drags both boys with her so they can help pack necessities for Ji-woon’s surgery.

Ha-won visits Grandpa Kang and wishes for him to wake up soon. She places a framed photograph of the blurry family photo on the table just when Hwa-ja enters the room. Hwa-ja coldly asks her when she plans on leaving, and Ha-won replies that she’ll disappear quietly as soon as Grandpa Kang’s surgery is over. As soon as Ha-won’s out of earshot, Hwa-ja rings up Bodyguard Lee, who informs her that Ji-woon’s surgery date has been set.

Hwa-ja instructs him to mark that date as the day they’ll be having the special shareholders meeting. “When the Chairman wakes up, everything will have changed,” she utters with determination.

Ji-woon signs the consent form, and the doctor advises him to remain calm until the surgery. He cuts the doctor off mid-sentence when he spots Ha-won entering the room so she won’t learn of his potentially life-threatening allergy. Ha-won suspects Ji-woon of withholding information from her, but he manages to convince her otherwise. She’s worried about his operation, but he reassures her that everything will be fine and asks her to grab him some food. As soon as she leaves, however, his easygoing smile turns grim.

Hye-ji’s happily scrolling through the Instagram feed of renowned fashion designer, CARRY HONG, who wanted to ship her to Paris for our sake recommend her for a fashion scholarship, when she lands on a photo of him with Hyun-min. Suspicious of Hyun-min’s possible involvement, she calls Carry and asks to meet.

Hye-ji asks him if he knows Hyun-min, and Carry admits that he was supposed to keep their friendship and Hyun-min’s favor a secret. However, Carry makes it clear that he only offered to mentor her because he was impressed by her skill. Hye-ji doesn’t buy it and politely declines, explaining that Hyun-min only made this happen because he felt guilty.

Offended by her assumption, Carry insists that he puts his name on the line in whatever he does. Aside from her obvious talent, he sees nothing wrong with a guy trying to help out his first love. We flashback to Hyun-min chatting with Carry and divulging that Hye-ji was and still is his first love, and that it’s his style to help people out discreetly. Carry was intrigued by the talented woman who also stole Hyun-min’s heart, and maintains that his offer to her still stands now.

Ha-won’s jaw drops when she enters Ji-woon’s room and finds Seo-woo jamming to blaring music, Hyun-min absorbed in a loud video game, and Ms. Beolgyo feeding Ji-woon, heh. Ha-won orders everyone to stop what they’re doing and leave since Ji-woon needs to be completely calm until the operation. Doctor’s orders!

They all protest since they want to keep him company, but she shoos them out, and Ji-woon can’t help but grin at her overprotectiveness. While grumbling with Seo-woo and Ms. Beolgyo about getting kicked out, Hyun-min notices the Haneul Group corporate lawyer looking shifty in the hospital lobby.

The lawyer meets with Hwa-ja, who commands him to hold a special shareholders meeting to discuss the dismissal of Chairman Kang. Hwa-ja’s certain everyone will agree to the dismissal because Bodyguard Lee is currently in the midst of persuading the naysayers. Hyun-min spies on their conversation, and his source confirms that Hwa-ja transferred all her shares to Bodyguard Lee.

Fuming, Hyun-min marches into Bodyguard Lee’s office and demands to know what he’s planning. He knows Lee was with Hwa-ja when Grandpa Kang fainted, and inquires as to why he lied and suddenly became Hwa-ja’s crony. Bodyguard Lee loses his cool (for the first time ever!) and yells at Hyun-min to quit his whining.

He shouts that the company’s failing, and that Grandpa Kang’s highly coveted position is up for grabs and can be taken by virtually anyone at anytime. “You still call yourself an heir when you don’t even know how to protect this position?” Lee asks with incredulity. He deems Hyun-min an unqualified successor for not knowing how to protect his grandpa. But Hyun-min’s undeterred and answers that he’ll prove to Lee how well he protects what belongs to him. Ooh, I like this Hyun-min! Where was your conviction hiding all this time?!

Back at the hospital, Ha-won wakes Ji-woon post-food coma so he doesn’t gain weight before the surgery. She also snatches a cheekily illustrated tissue box (designed so that the kleenex is plucked from a girl’s derriére) from him and orders him to use bathroom tissues instead. Ji-woon teases her for getting jealous of a tissue box, and in the midst of trying to retrieve it from her, Ha-won falls onto him.

Cue the angel choir as the two gaze at each other in close proximity. Ji-woon pokes fun at her, accusing her of orchestrating all this for a kiss. Ha-won stammers a denial, but Ji-woon encourages her to go ahead, and even puckers up. She ultimately rejects his lips and switches on the TV.

The two learn through the news report that a special shareholders meeting will take place to discuss the dismissal of Chairman Kang. Bodyguard Lee appears tormented due to the imminent meeting, but Hwa-ja calls him to remind him that they’re past the point of no return, and that all he has to do now is what must be done.

After receiving the invitation to attend the shareholders meeting, Hyun-min is surprisingly zen, taking deep breaths with his eyes closed. Seo-woo’s indignant that everyone’s betraying Grandpa Kang and is alarmed to learn that Bodyguard Lee was plotting this coup since the very beginning. Hyun-min, unfazed and focused, directs Seo-woo to meet with the entertainment side; he’ll meet with the chemical and construction industries. The objective is to hang on until Grandpa Kang wakes up.

It’s one day before the meeting, and the media is abuzz with Haneul Group news. Seo-woo marches into Haneul Entertainment to do his part. Meanwhile, Hwa-ja’s at the hospital, satisfied to see her plan unfold without a hitch. Hyun-min’s gathered several shareholders and urges them to look past his inexperience and recognize his earnest desire to protect his grandpa’s company as a Haneul Group heir. He bows deeply and asserts, “I want to protect Haneul Group which belongs to all of you, not just to the Chairman and I.”

Hye-ji reflects on all of Hyun-min’s kind gestures at the store she works at and steps out momentarily. Hyun-min visits his comatose grandpa and updates him: “I worked really hard, Grandpa. You better heap on the praises when you wake up!” Heh.

Drained from a long and eventful day, Hyun-min plops himself next to Ji-woon, and is surprised when Ji-woon hands him his power of attorney document. Ji-woon is a shareholder, too, but he’ll be in surgery tomorrow. He remarks that he’s helping Grandpa live by giving him a chunk of his liver, but he doesn’t want to see him collapse from shock when he finds out he lost his company. Ji-woon entrusts Hyun-min with protecting Grandpa Kang, and Hyun-min confidently smiles.

Ja-young yanks Seo-woo to a restaurant so she can feed him. She’s concerned by his weight loss, but he doesn’t have much of an appetite with the company fiasco, plus Ji-woon and Grandpa Kang’s surgeries taking place tomorrow. Seo-woo laments that there’s nothing he could do to resolve anything, but Ja-young perkily reminds him that he can sing; he needed cheer during troubled times, and now he can provide that cheer to everyone else through his music. Grateful for her support, Seo-woo discloses that he coincidentally thought of her first during this difficult time, and Ja-young exclaims that they’re fated to be together, heh.

Hyun-min finds Hye-ji waiting for him at Sky House. After a long day, he’s not in the mood to talk to her, but she speaks up anyway. She tells him he can stop feeling guilty towards her and her brother; it wasn’t Hyun-min’s fault that her brother died, and she’s sorry for not knowing how he felt all these years. Reminded of the day he ran away in fear when her brother got hit by a car, Hyun-min heads to his room, rattled.

Hye-ji weeps, and after thinking it over, Hyun-min returns to her and confesses that it’s hard for him to protect his grandpa and Haneul Group now because he never once protected anything that belonged to him and failed to protect what was dear to her. He pushed Hye-ji away and closed his heart because he felt like all he ever did was hurt her. But he’s not going to do that anymore and vows to protect her properly. He strides toward her and pulls her in for a kiss.

The doctor’s warning about possibly not waking up from surgery weighs heavily on Ji-woon’s mind, but he turns and smiles when Ha-won enters the room. He brings up the “what if” notion of his surgery not going well, and Ha-won socks him in the arm for even thinking that. She’s not amused, and assures him that won’t happen. Ji-woon says he’s not scared because she’s by his side.

He believes his mother led him to Ha-won the day they first met at the columbarium on the anniversary of his mother’s death. Ha-won’s surprised to learn that their mothers’ deaths are commemorated on the same day, which put them at the same place at the same time every year.

Ha-won sidles next to him on the bed. It’s the last night before Ji-woon’s surgery, and he tells her that he wants to do so many things with her. Everything he mentions are low-key date ideas (movies, strolls in the park, etc.), and he notes that she has yet to grant his wish after locating her necklace on that trip. His wish is to go on a date with her. Right now.

Cut to Ha-won distracting the nurses at the front desk by treating them with energy drinks while Ji-woon crawls on the floor and makes his escape. After changing into regular clothes, he and Ha-won take the elevator down, but the doors open to a group of doctors eyeing them suspiciously, so they make a run for it.

Holding hands and adorably dressed in blue, the two take a stroll through the park, take selfies, catch a movie, and venture to an aquarium. Afterwards, they head to a street food cart where Ha-won happily munches on spicy rice cakes and blood sausage. Ji-woon merely watches her eat since he has to fast for tomorrow’s surgery. Feeling left out, he suggests they return next time so they both can dig in. Ha-won pauses at the mention of “next time,” but manages to reassure Ji-woon with a hesitant, “Of course.”

To change the subject, Ha-won dashes across the crosswalk and tells Ji-woon to hurry while the light is green. But then she realizes that she left her phone at the food cart, and Ji-woon offers to run back and grab it for her. Oh fiddlesticks! Curse you dramas for conditioning me to anticipate a truck of doom whenever there’s a happy couple in the middle of a road. My palms perspired for no reason!

Like a sensible human being (whew!), Ji-woon waits to cross and waves Ha-won’s phone in the air. Knowing he can’t hear her since they’re separated by traffic, she sadly addresses him: “Don’t be surprised if I’m not there after you wake up from surgery. I’m sorry.” Ji-woon sees her lips move, but yells that he can’t hear her. Ha-won raises her voice and shouts that she loves him to mask her misery.

The light turns green, and Ji-woon happily runs to her and envelops her in a hug. She asks if he heard her, and he kisses her in response as the camera whirls around them. Back at the hospital, Ha-won’s fast asleep on the couch. Ji-woon tenderly holds her hand and promises to return to her.

The next day’s a big day. Hyun-min dons a suit for the shareholders meeting and receives a heartening text from Hye-ji; she tells him to protect Grandpa Kang’s position just like he promised to protect her.

Oh, I almost forgot about these two: Yoo-na’s being her delusional, whiny self while Stepmom’s chiding her ignorance, when Stepmom suddenly receives a call from an unknown number that causes her to react in shock. Uh oh. Is Ha-won’s pops okay?

The Haneul Group shareholders meeting that’ll determine Chairman Kang’s dismissal is about to commence, and Hyun-min looks uneasy. Meanwhile, Ji-woon’s getting fitted with various tubes for his operation. Ha-won looks worried, but clasps his hand and gives him an encouraging nod. We return to the shareholders meeting and all the board members drop their paper votes in a box. Hyun-min looks at Bodyguard Lee and Hwa-ja sitting across from him with steel in his eyes.

After Bodyguard Lee drops his vote in, Hwa-ja commends him for his hard work and states that they’re nearing the end. Back at the hospital, Ji-woon looks over at Grandpa Kang one last time before they’re both wheeled into the operating room.

The votes have been counted, and the status of Chairman Kang’s position is about to be announced. At the same time, surgeons are operating on Chairman Kang and Ji-woon when the monitors start beeping erratically.

Ha-won’s waiting outside when a group of medical personnel rush into the operating room, causing her to fear the worst.

 
COMMENTS

Ah, the penultimate episode! Do I fear that Ji-woon and Grandpa Kang won’t survive their operation? Mmm, no. I think they’ll both end up fine and resume their lives in no time. Ji-woon’s probably going to have a hiccup during surgery due to his allergy and cause everyone to fret, but I’m certain he’ll wake up. It wouldn’t be a Cinderella tale if the ending were tragic, right? It would be uncharacteristic of the show to throw a wrench in the works and surprise us with a sudden twist because I don’t think the show is even capable of that, especially not this late in the game. Ha-won may disappear for a bit because of that darn dating ban (or whatever predicament her father’s in), but she’ll ultimately return to Ji-woon.

It was great to see Hyun-min step up and take charge of the Haneul Group fiasco. I wish I saw him do more to save Grandpa Kang’s position than just speak to a group of board members and hope for the best, but hey, his effort counted for something. And what a relief it was to see him take matters into his own hands and deal with an issue that didn’t involve Hye-ji for once. I’m glad Hye-ji and Hyun-min finally reconciled despite how unspectacular and unconvincing that scene was. It was a long time coming, but now we don’t have to deal with their annoying “I love you, but I can’t be with you” dance. It seems like all Hyun-min needed was Hye-ji’s confirmation that he wasn’t at fault for her brother’s death in order to get out of his funk; the threat to his grandpa’s company also helped. I don’t think Sohn Na-eun and Ahn Jae-hyun brought out the best in each other, but it doesn’t escape me that they’re also working with a flimsy story line and subpar dialogue.

I have a feeling Bodyguard Lee’s unexpected vote against Chairman Kang’s dismissal will be seminal in tipping the scales for the chairman’s position of power to remain in tact. And Hwa-ja will naturally be upset and feel betrayed, but so will her husband when he finds out that she tried to take over his company. It felt odd that Lee joined his mother on the dark side so readily after a mere necktie and dinner. His conflicted feelings were clearly depicted in this episode so he’ll definitely do right by the Kangs when it counts the most, and vote based on his conscience.

Ji-woon and Ha-won barely got to enjoy each other’s company before getting caught, so I’m glad we got to see them stuff as many adorable date-related activities as they could in one night. They couldn’t stop beaming and holding each other, and I thoroughly enjoyed their cute romance. This show could’ve benefited from way more fluff to detract from the weak plot and puzzling character motivations, but I’ll take what I can get, and I’m grateful for the fluff that was included. And thank goodness there was no truck of doom! I swear, the director was purposely messing with me in that crosswalk scene. However, in lieu of that ever familiar truck of doom, we thankfully got a nice scene that served as a metaphor for Ha-won and Ji-woon’s ill-fated relationship: two people that belong together, but are separated for reasons (sort of) beyond their control.

With one episode remaining, I won’t ask for much from a show that offered very little. I want perhaps 5% of the finale to consist of plot resolution (I’m being generous here), and the remaining 95% to just have all three Kang boys happily hanging out with their respective girlfriends (we all know what the pairings are: Seo-woo plus his number one fan Ja-young, the double H’s, and our main lovebirds, Ji-woon and Ha-won) and going out on group dates because they’ve grown closer as a family, partly in thanks to Ha-won and her successful “completion” of a few “missions” here and there. Unleash the kisses, the hugs, the laughter, sunshine, rainbows, and fluff on top of fluff until the finale is so fluffy we won’t totally regret tuning in to an easy, albeit unimaginative and immensely flawed show.

It's evident that we're all conditioned to expect a car-crash tragedy near the end of a drama. The fact that 'Cinderella and the Four Knights' avoided this glaringly predictable trope makes me like it a little more.

It's Actually Truck Kun. A ridiculous Driver crashing into Main Characters, without any knowledge of traffic Rules. An attempt by the lazy writer to create an unnecessary drama+shock value and emotional outburst for several days.

It was and still is present in Japanese fiction and as expected koreans got their idea from japanese content again. And in japanese fiction it has killed or send into coma many main characters. Whereas in korean fiction it hardly harms anyone.

I enjoyed HEC. At least the main female character was a perfect blank slate for JIW to reflect his physical comedy off. and the music was catchy too (ha ha ha ha ha I love you catch me boy)

I need another hanbok sangeuk JIW. the return of the return of iljimae. That could easily be a sequel. Move it forward another century or something like Blackadder did several times.

Truck of Doom got the day off...ah, what a change of pace.

Truck of Doom: Wha....? I was totally prepared, come on!

PD: Change of plans. Too much unnecessary angst and fluff stuffed into the show already, I can't fit in a ToD appearance. There's no time to do the post-ToD effect either, we usually need at least two episodes for that, maybe three...

Truck of Doom: Oh OK...no worries. I've got a regular spot on the weekend shows anyways. Good luck with the rest of the show then.

PD: Thanks. I'll be in touch for my next gig.

ToD would never be in the same show as the Car of Doom that so prominently featured as an angst creator.

I'm not sure if it's a show of respect for other agents of Doom, or if it might be against the stipulations in their Union of Doom contracts.

I know it hasn't been the best series but because of the main characters I continued to watch the show and just went with it. I even like where Hye Ji's story went, but even though Naeun is super gorgeous, she still can't act very well. Like Chick said, it was very unconvincing. Oh well, they have other better written shows, but I'll always enjoy a Cinderella story, especially if she's endearing like So Dam :)

I'm glad my Hyun Min came back to life. I'll never understand why they thought it'd be a good idea to from episode 8 to here just completely strip him of his entire personality and not give him anything to do except mope around. They had plenty to work with with Hyun Min. His abandonment issues, his mother issues, his father. They let everything revolve around Hye Ji. And perhaps I could have accepted that, had the writing not been so sloppy. It's like it was written by someone who's been on a bender all night and is too hungover and sleep-deprived to care about things making sense. There was that great moment in episode 5 where Hyun Min is on the phone with his mother, and clearly upset, but as soon as he sees Ha Won he hides behind his cheeky playboy persona again. Could we have seen more scenes like that? Hyun Min used his playboy persona as a shield. Couldn't they have stuck with that, and done something with that part of him, instead of just turning him to Mopey McBroody for seven episodes? Would have been way more interesting, IMHO.

Ah well, I will remember the fond things, and just move onto the next

-JIW hot mechanic

-School uniform all fan girly with Seo Woo
-Mrs Beolgyo, that was a nice little cameo character
-and Mr. Sexretary, hello!

& i get that it's just the /plot/ but i couldn't stop wondering why chairman kang ignores hyun min & hyeji being together but vehemently opposed jiwoon & ha won? like hyun min is the actual company successor, wouldn't he care that hyeji is "not part of their world" (as hyeji put it) & that her father was just put in jail?

i get that it wouldn't make sense to have 2 couples with the same obstacle but it was still so illogical to me...

You and me, e, you and me except I didn't FF. What was I thinking??? This show is so outdated I feel like I should look ten years younger after watching it.

Unfortunately I didn't discover the twice the speed button on the website I was watching until the final two episodes, man did that literally speed things up, no slowmos, no angel army, 5 sentences dialogues didn't drag on for ages, Ms Blankface walked at a normal speed. ?
Well at least I was working out during a couple of episodes so the time wasn't completely wasted.

hahahahaha "walked at a normal speed". That should be the, pun intended, lingering memory of this drama. Did she do that, ever?

Oh God, I swear the only reason I'm following this drama is for the snarky comments. Their gold, truly GOLD!

They could have done a lot better with these final episodes. Nobody wanted the show to go into angsty wheel spinning. We wanted picnics and rainbows and 4 way dates.

How lame is it when the most talked-about character in the episode is the no-show Truck of Doom.

I've seen the final episode, so I know my wish won't be granted, but could ToD please make a special surprise appearance for a date with evil step-mom ?

HYUN MIN. <3 It's really regretful that I had to FF most of his scenes with whatshername, but he really stepped up his game this episode. Deep down there's an intelligent bloke who's fit to be future Chairman.
And FINALLY dates and more dates, swoooooon. How nice that they can go to all kinds of places late at night that look like they were cleared just for our otp to enjoy themselves.

Thanks for the recap, the end is near hang in there, champ.

I can only think that I watched this show out of morbid curiosity as to just how terrible a kdrama could possibly get.
I will always think of the show as Cinderella and the Fourever Never Ending Flashbacks.
I could go on and on about the plot holes, the cliches, story lines that went nowhere but I will just end with a few highlights of La plupart Horrible spectacle jamais.

For most of the show the viewer is locked into a square shaped set that resembles a prison with glass walls for the warden to view the inmates through, with the female warden nicely cast as a woman that runs the whole show by herself since we never see any other house or grounds staff. Over the course of the show we learn there is good reason for this as it becomes obvious that three men behind the glass walls all have inherited insanity. If they had shown any signs of intelligence, which would have made them very dangerous, the show might have been redeemed as a horror drama, and why not since the second female lead did a far better imitation of a zombie walking around then most horror movies do. As it was, the show had all the suspense of watching someone blow gum into a bubble to see if it will pop on their face, between the flashbacks that is. Topping all of this off was one of the most irritating songs that I have ever heard in my life that was played throughout the show over and over and over again driving me to turn off the sound just to escape it.

Now that I know how awful a show like this can be, I will be prepared for the warning signs in future shows, with or without the endless flashbacks popping up.

Well, at least someone came out with a life lesson from this show. So that's a positive.

Out of morbid curiosity, you watch this drama till end but deemed it as drama acted out inside a square box and watch it through a looking glass. How dreadful!! Why not go with the flow and enjoy it like a light spring breeze blowing through a summer day. It was just like what a Cinderella story should be - a fantasy, lively, simple, sweet, fun loving and an endearing drama to be carried away.

Sincerely, I did try to go with the flow as you suggested, but the flow carried me away down the River Styx.
Perhaps I am just spoiled by all the good dramas I have seen and have a low tolerance to whatever that was.

Who knows? If enough people liked it perhaps they can make a sequel and use the other half of the show not already used in flashbacks for flashbacks in the next one.

Not that dramas ever get medicine right, but I have so many questions about his anaesthesia allergy.
1- do Hospitals seriously test for that when you go in for donor blood tests etc?
2- HOW do you test for this?
3- is he allergic to all kinds of anaesthesia or just specific ones?
4- could they use a different drug or something to steal his liver chunk???
WHAT KIND OF DOCTORS UGH

Obviously the whole allergy drama was bullocks. It's not that of a big deal since there are several different types of anesthesia. That surgery comes with big risks, and they chose to focus on inaccuracies for the dramatic effect. It's the anesthesiologist that should have had the talk with the patient. LOL sorry, just realized I don't actually have any answers for the why drama did this and many other WTH-things in its long run.

Hahaha. I was JUST going to post a RANT on this. Because I'm an anesthetist. And this was.... *bangs head on table*

1. No you don't get tested for anesthesia allergy when you go for surgery, UNLESS you have a family history of someone (blood related) having a bad allergic reaction to anesthesia before.

To answer 2 and 3-
There is an allergic reaction that is genetically passed down called malignant hyperthermia (MH) that can cause severe life threatening allergies to most common anesthesia drugs. This can be tested for before surgery IF you have a family history of it. It is rare and the test isnt simple so we don't go round testing everyone who needs surgery.

for people who do have this condition, there are drugs that can be used, and it is safe, just that we don't use them routinely. As long as we know, we will avoid the drugs that trigger the bad reaction.

The risk on an Allergic reactions to drugs in anesthesia is always there even if a person has gone for surgery before. And we do tell patients about it, just not in the idiotic way in the drama.

Also, liver resection surgery is fairly risky in itself ANYWAY so they didn't need to add this nonsense just for the sake of adding more angst.

And Gramp's risk of dying during the op is very high due to liver failure too so I don't know what nonsense is this.

And for the record, Beautiful Mind and Doctors (both medical dramas) were MUCH MUCH MUCH more medically accurate than this. In case you went away thinking this was the norm. XD

Ok rant over. Thanks for letting me vent.

You are amazing.

And yeah, I don't go to these shows for medical accuracy or law accuracy (I Can Hear Your Voice, anyone?), or even LIFE accuracy... but this anaesthesia bs really bugged me so hard that I audibly and forcefully slapped my own forehead.

I appreciate your informational response!!

I really appreciate you posting this, because I have MH in my family. My older brother reacted as a child, and they barely saved him. However, we have all had surgeries since then using safe anesthesia and with everyone keeping a close eye on us.

It ticks me off to no end when people use the condition that almost killed my brother for drama. I wouldn't mind if they actually got it right, but they so very rarely do (I'm looking at YOU Gray's Anatomy!)
