Doctor Stranger: Episode 17
by | June 30, 2014 | 89 Comments
There’s more of what the doctor didn’t order in this hour with the one surgical competition that will never end, injecting the show with even more moments of medical incompetency than I thought it could handle.

Seok-ju’s team has assembled to fight the notorious Cha Yeong Woo Firm, but the funny thing is, he never asked for help, and none of them actually belong there: an angry and misplaced prosecutor, a loyal friend betraying his own firm, and a principled yet unrealistic intern.

More good stuff!

Episode 2 had a... More »
