Tomorrow – Release July 08

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
Moriyama Kohei (Takenouchi Yutaka) 竹野内豊 used to be a surgeon 8 years ago. Due to a medical mistake he quits his job as a doctor and moved to a quiet country side. He started his life by working as a public servant in the city hall. After so many years working peacefully without letting others know that he used to be a doctor, he was then assigned to help rebuilt the local hospital. A talented doctor and also a hospital manager name Endo Saya (Ogawa Tamaki) 緒川たまwas assigned to rescue the hospital from bankruptcy. Due to the insufficient of doctors around, Moriyama Kohei (Takenouchi Yutaka) 竹野内豊 once again pick up the scalpel for the sake of the local people. His decision was mostly influence by a nurse name Tanaka Aiko (Kanno Miho) 菅野美穂.

Feelings and comments:
The first impression this drama gives me is that doctors are humans too. They are just like ordinary people with their own problems and secrets. There are not many people that can successfully become a doctor or a surgeon. The demand of doctor is always high. It will be a waste if a doctor quits. That goes the same to hospital too. It will be a big problem for a place that does not have a hospital close by. Imagine if you need to drive few hours from where you live just to reach the nearest hospital. Sometimes patients might not be able to wait that long to reach the hospital.

I don’t see much action from Takenouchi Yutaka (竹野内豊) either in movie or drama lately. So it’s kind of nice to be able to see him in this drama. Still after so many years, his acting doesn’t seem to improve much. I think Kanno Miho (菅野美穂) shines brighter in this drama.
As usual there are a lot of moral and ethical topics in this drama as it is related to medical. The main issue that you’ll find in this drama is that money is still very important no matter what. Nothing is free. Somebody else needs to pay for the medical fees in order to keep the hospital operate.

Things that caught my eyes:
Such a big hospital but still can be run and operate by just few stuff. The nurses seem to be able to look after so many patients and help out in the operation room.

Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching. Besides, we don’t get to see much action from Takenouchi Yutaka (竹野内豊)
