The broadcasting industry is buzzing with discussions about medical dramas. Particularly, there are discussions about the airing of “Wise Resident Life” which was scheduled to premiere in the first half of the year.

“Wise Resident Life” is a spin-off of the beloved series “Hospital Playlist”, which tells the story of warm-hearted doctors.

High-profile actors such as Go Yoon-jung and rising stars like Shin Sia, Kang Yoo-seok, Han Ye-ji, and Jung Joon-won are expected to deliver a synergistic performance as residents at Yulje Medical Center in Jongno.

Netizens have expressed negative reactions such as, “Is this a drama where patients’ lives are at stake due to strikes?”, “Is it a fantasy drama?”, “I don’t want to see doctors idealized anymore,” “Is this being reflected in the drama?” These reactions have sparked controversy.

The drama was announced to premiere in May, with the release of its first teaser video on the 9th, but with the doctors’ strike entering a prolonged phase, it remains to be seen whether it will air on the scheduled date.

According to the medical community, eight out of ten specialists have submitted resignations. It has been reported that 9,006 specialists have left their workplaces.

Considering that the emergency medical system operated by specialists can sustain for approximately ‘2-3 weeks,’ concerns about its prolonged duration are increasing.
