Somehow over the years, the (meandering) Grey’s Anatomy has become today’s epitome of a medical drama series. That’s why K-drama Life arrives like a breath of fresh air. It is, thankfully, nothing like that romance-fuelled American series even though it is set in a hospital.
For one, there is only a hint of romance here. Secondly, the plot of Life does not really revolve around doctors treating patients; rather the focus falls on how the doctors in a general hospital are involved in the management of this large institution, and having to deal with greedy corporations and (the often clueless, yet corrupt) government officers.
