Episode 5 looks like it’s going to be another strong episode for Doctor Stranger. The preview hints at more great medical drama and some juicy information about the doctor who looks like Hoon’s lost love Jae Hee.
Jae Joon criticizes that it was Hoon’s arrogance that led to the death of Soo Hyun’s mother, but Soo Hyun instead tells him she is thankful of Hoon and takes Hoon’s side. On the other hand, the Chinese man who helps Chang Yi to find her mum tells Hoon that he has found Jae Hee…
Translation with Screenshots
Dr. Moon: You’re going to do surgery here? Why here?
Jae Joon: Why did you do the surgery?
Hoon: For money.
Mr. Lee: That woman…
Mr. Lee: I found her!
Police: We received a tip and have come here. Are you Dr. Park Hoon?
Hospital President: Park Hoon […]
Hoon: I behaved wrongly.
Hospital President: Get out. This is my order.
Hoon: They found her. It’s not confirmed yet, but they found Jae-hee.
Chang Yi: My mom saw [Jae Hee] unni in the North, she says that unni has died already.
Soo Hyun: What kind of person was Jae-hee-ssi?
Seung Hee: You’d have to kill me first. I, Han Seung Hee, am willing to die for my mother country.
No episode of Doctor Stranger would be complete without Hoon denying authority to perform a life saving operation and episode 5 seems to be no exception to this rule. This time around, it looks like his patient is the smuggler working to find Jae Hee. My guess, the smuggler gets caught while spying on Jae Hee and “complications” arise. From the looks of it, Professor Moon gets reluctantly drawn in as well.
I know she’s Chang Yi’s mom, but I can’t help but think she’s a spy for North Korea. She’s positioned herself at the hospital and it looks like she’s going to divulge a story of how she saw Jae Hee die in a concentration camp. I’m very suspicious…
I’m also very worried and curious about what this guy’s planning. How is he going to get revenge on Hoon?
Jae Hee’s look-a-like Seung Hee seems to be central to this plot.
I love that despite his difficult situation, Hoon maintains a laid back and quirky attitude.
Hoon may be ecstatic about the thought of finding Jae Hee, but the hard truth is going to come crashing down on him eventually. We don’t yet know what the full truth is, but it’s certainly going to be more complicated than “Jae Hee’s been trapped in a prison camp”. I’m worried this news may actually break Hoon…
