[Orion's Daily Ramblings] "Life" Portrays A Battle of Convictions in Teaser Poster

2018/05/25 | 820 views | Permalink

What are hospitals in Korean drama without their power struggles? We can't escape them, but upcoming drama "Life" embraces them. The teaser poster reveals some simple, but crucial information about the characters portrayed by Lee Dong-wook and Cho Seung-woo, while the writer comments on her intentions.

The poster is very simple, and its tagline impactful. "When 1.5 liters of blood is shed, life disappears. How much time do we have left?" Aside from the obvious hint of confrontation, the news attached to it consider its symbolism. The scalpel seems to be a symbol for Ye Jin-woo (Lee Dong-wook), who values his work as a doctor, while the pen is a symbol for Goo Seung-hyo (Cho Seung-woo), who cold-heartedly thinks that winning by the numbers is what matters most.

Writer Lee Soo-yeon-I expressed her thoughts on hospitals and their function, saying "A hospital is a place we come into contact with in our daily lives, but which we do not really understand without related expertise. So it is a place where honest beliefs and values are crucial".

On her motivation, she adds "Whether you acknowledge reality or compromise, whether you value prosperity or your personal convictions, a hospital where those dramatic beliefs clash is the setting of this drama. I wrote this drama in hopes of exploring, even if a little, the problems that exist, the problems that could exist, and the kind of people that can be found in the medical world".

This sounds like a project fueled by curiosity for the subject matter, rather than one aiming to make a point about it, but "Life" will hopefully be an interesting exploration with minimum amount of Evil Rich Guys™ fake-laughing while stabbing each other in the back. The creators are certainly good for it. "Life" premieres in July, on jTBC.
