Last Hope (2013)

Last Hope

the medical suspense drama was inspired by the work of Yamanaka Shinya (山中伸弥), a Japanese physician and researcher of adult stem cells. the story took place in IBRI (Institute of Biomedical Research and Innovation) hospital, following a medical team made up of doctors from different fields of expertise and age-group. they were the last hope for all terminally ill patients who were sent there. they slowly grew as in individual as well as a team, helping each other to overcome complexes and pasts.

having a huge number of casts caused the storyline to be divided. despite putting the focus of each episode on one patient, there were plenty of doctors and backgrounds to cover. in the end, it wasn't in depth enough to have one feel engaged to any particular doctor. as for the medical details, there were plenty for us commoners to get lost in. fortunately, despite the struggle with jargon, the medical drama remained interesting.
