Doctor Slump Opening Week Story

Everything was going smoothly in Yeo Jeong-woo’s life. A star plastic surgeon, his wealth kept growing until a patient’s death made his life change in an instant. Liquidating his assets, he is still saddled with debts. He then moves to a rooftop place recommended by his friend. There he meets Nam Ha-neul again.

Jeong-woo and Ha-neul are once school rivals aiming to become the top student. Years later, Jeong-woo became a successful plastic surgeon but Ha-neul works as an anesthesiologist with an utterly bad boss who always dumps his work to her.

Ha-neul’s exhausting life of trying to be the best caused her a worsening condition of depression. Reaching her tipping point when her senior wants her to take responsibility for his error at a recent surgery, she decides to quit.

Both at the lowest point of their lives, Jeong-woo and Ha-neul find themselves in front of soju bottles as they comfort each other without saying the words directly.

“Everyone is a bit unhappy in life.”
