Doctor Prisoner centers around an ace doctor in a university hospital's emergency care center, a skilled professional who treats his patients with full devotion and without discrimination. However, his medical license gets suspended as a result of a medical malpractice incident that arises when the hospital board director causes a ruckus. He then gets his certificate as a medical internist and applies to work at a prison, where his plan is to cozy up to all the big-shots there-business tycoons, celebrities caught for doing drugs, sports stars guilty of gambling-and to win allies, with the ultimate goal of getting revenge against the hospital that ousted him. To do so, he'll get rid of the existing prison chief doctor and claim the spot for himself. Written by DramaBeans

Good Acting With Unusual Hero
22 May 2019 | by lia00027See all my reviews

Opened this drama with a scene that happened in 2019 we are Introduced with an extra-ordinary genius doctor who helped a rich female convict to get out of jail with creating irregular disease to avoid her jail time while she could stay in the hospital instead to get treatment, while the story goes on the pasts were uncovered in each episode. Reviewing the story it is not a typical doctor-conflict regarding power struggle in the hospital but it tells stories about internal rich-family struggle, rich-people playing on people's live, insurance scheme, hospital-jail scheme and more intrigues. However I cannot say that the script-writer already did his best since even though I can comprehend the back-stabbing scenes that occurred many time the conflicts are not fully resolved while the crimes not fully punished until the end which is quite a disappointment. The plot tend to become too dragging over a character, like when the hero took down his enemy turns out his enemy prepared another way out and so on since this case happened not twice making it somehow the characters forced being ended-up together. The good things are no annoying love-story and the main character true to his character since the hero never lose.

The acting of the actors are good especially Nam Gong Min and the villains which I unfortunately forget their names. Nam Gong Min is not an ordinary actor, despite his slow-talk and calm-lazy appearance his acting is what giving life to this drama. I am not really a fan of him but he is good on this drama. While without the supporting actors and the villains' good acting this drama won't be good either. Watch this drama but gotta warn you this drama comes with heavy conflicts.
