Terrible things are happening in the hospital setting of jTBC's "Life", and we seem to have a death in the family of hero Ye Jin-woo (Lee Dong-wook). The power play is on, with different characters showing different motivation behind their work in what should be a place of healing with no room for personal gain or ego.
Our hero opens his narration by giving us a taste of what his work is all about. "'Aren't you dead tired?' is the question I get asked the most. 'Why did you choose this road?' comes next. Because I studied the ways of saving people from death", he says. Our good doctor may be focused on saving lives, but others are busy clashing. Lee Sang-yeop (Uhm Hyo-sup) warns of the potential deadly dangers of overworked doctors, an interest Goo Seung-hyo (Cho Seung-woo) mocks as insincere.
What is undoubtedly the main point of the teaser, however, is the involvement of Ye Seon-woo (Lee Kyu-hyung), Jin-woo's younger brother, in potentially sinister affairs. The man can be heard telling his older sibling that he shouldn't have talked about something, while someone else urges someone to stop wasting their energy and do their work. It's our hero's narration which brings about the worst news, however.
We are told of someone being brought in as a DOA (dead on arrival). Jin-woo continues "On this night, there were two. One of them died after being cut by the words of a junior they trusted". His closing words set to an empty home and him holding a black outfit are "It must have been a hard day. Your last day, when I said such harsh things".
What did Seon-woo know that led to his death? More importantly, this teaser gives us a clearer look at what we can expect from "Life", and a murder mystery is definitely a focus I can get behind. It looks like Jin-woo will have a lot of inner and outer demons to fight for the truth, and for the honor of his hospital. I can't wait to dig into the series starting July 23rd.
