Han Yi Han, played by So Ji Sub, used to be a double-board certified genius surgeon. He was also the ace of Bansuk University Hospital, who specialized in both general and thoracic surgeries. He was brilliant with a tall and model-like appearance, and he always kept everyone at ease with his smile despite being overloaded with his work.
That is until an incident happened, and Han Yi Han had to lose everything due to a fabricated surgery. He lost his medical license and finally decided to become a medical malpractice lawyer.
