I finally found out where those documents originated from. Taemin Cancer Center in Korea. More specifically, their secure database. What if Manager Park Jisang performs this surgery? I wasn’t insufficient atesine. It was a different drug! They switched the pills, and the security cameras fortuitously malfunctioned, and the Kochenia documents were deleted. In one way or form, they will identify themselves. Chief! Chief! The injection was the same as what killed your mother. They must be working with the jerks from before. We are not monsters or demons. We are superior beings. Will Chief Park Jisang be joining, too? He’s not a part of this, and he must not know of this. We will gather patient data of everyone in Ward 21A starting tomorrow. We will develop a drug that none of you could possibly imagine. Your problem is this is ice in here. He probably received the congratulatory message, so begin right away. Chief Park Jisang. May I ask you one more time? What are you doing? I will be there soon. Chief! Tell me. Who killed my mother? Who? (Episode 5) Hello. Can he walk away from his life-long wish… because of a patient who is a perfect stranger? You made the right choice. The most appropriate choice for you. Thanks, Park Jisang, for not disappointing me. Chief! Raise your hands! I said, raise your hands! What is wrong with you? Please proceed quickly. Explain yourself after the surgery. – Vitals. / – Pulse, 130. BP, 80 over 40. He’s unstable. We must begin immediately. We have removed the liver, so you can begin now. Thank you. The portal vein thrombosis worsened while waiting. There is no blood flow. You could have prevented it had you come sooner. Release the clamp. As Professor Lee said, there is no blood flow. It will be difficult to remove the thrombus like this. Let’s expand the vein and remove it. No. The vein’s wall is too thin. It will increase bleeding and the vein may be damaged. Then we have no option. We brought the donor’s iliac vein, correct? Yes. Why? Rather than remove the thrombosis, I’ll attach the donor’s vein to conduct a bypass. We’ll connect the donor’s vein to the portal vein. Give me the vein. Clamp. Doesn’t the new drug development team start tomorrow? It’s past midnight. We’ll connect the portal vein, then the liver. Suture. Forceps. Snap. Cut. We’ll start the reperfusion now. Blood is flowing in the portal vein. In the transplanted vein as well. We will now connect the liver. Suture. I was wrong to ever think you may be different from your parents Why don’t you take a break? I’ll finish up. I’m fine. Cut. The liver transplant has been completed. Vitals. They are all normal. Great work. – Great work. / – Great work. Good work, everyone. Thank you. Thank you, Doctor. Thank the donor and his family. I’m thankful to them, and I’m thankful to you too. That’s fine. Take care of your mother. I will. Remember one thing. There is a limit to pain but there is no limit to fear. You can endure either emotional or physical pain. But no matter what happens, don’t be afraid. Don’t cower in fear. Okay. I promise. To me, the result outweighs the process. But today, the process was so problematic that it overshadowed the good result. It was a personal matter, so I don’t plan to explain. Since it’s the first time and a personal matter, I won’t ask what happened. However, I hope you won’t disappoint me again. Yes, I’ll try my best. Okay, let’s hear your explanation now. You must know how outrageous and irresponsible you were. I admit it was outrageous. But I was not irresponsible. I’m not here to play games. It was a personal matter. I have no reason to explain and I don’t want to. If your personal matter put a patient in danger, it is no longer personal. Nothing happened. The surgery went well. You just don’t know when to apologize! I tried to give you the benefit of the doubt, but it’s just impossible. I thought we just didn’t click, but no, I feel disillusioned. – Hey. / – Did you finish your surgery? – Yes. / – Then come quickly. Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! I’m going to rest here a bit and get to work. Then come home for 30 minutes. You need to see this for yourself. Are you waiting for my decision? Leave him alone for now. – Doctor. / – Let’s watch a little longer. Park Jisang reminds me of Park Hyeonseo. Especially his eyes. He has Park Hyeonseo’s eyes. So you mean since Park Jisang will resist us as his father did, we should get rid of him beforehand? But it would be a waste to get rid of him now. – But Doctor… / – An important fact is Park Jisang is not the kid you fought long ago. And what’s more important is what you see right now is not the end. Look at your blood sample. It’s back to normal. The plasma, platelets, red and white blood cells. They didn’t just heal. They had an antibody reaction and became stronger. The antigen target’s function increased by 24.76 times. – Awesome. / – Know what’s even more awesome? Luuvy. Atropine, VP toxin, allicin, heparin, solanine, beta-2-VP… They have all been naturally neutralized. More awesome. So not only were you healed completely biologically, you became free from biological and chemical poisons. In other words, no chemical compound can kill you. Congratulations. Wow, I can’t believe this… What’s wrong? So I have become the strongest of the infected. Then it’s even harder for me to become human now. The injection was the same as what killed your mother. Completely the same. So not only were you healed completely biologically, you became free from biological and chemical poisons. In other words, no chemical compound can kill you. I really want to become human. Jisang! You were wrong. I couldn’t control myself and… killed my favorite deer. You’re facing a difficult obstacle, but you will overcome it. I’m just happy you haven’t hurt people… I’m sure I’ll kill people soon, too. I almost did yesterday. You can control yourself because you’re not a beast but a human being. I can never watch the sun rise, and I take a drug so I don’t react when I see blood. My heart always feels like it’s about to burst. My body temperature is only 25 degrees. – You call that human? / – You are human. Just the method of existence is different. I want to bite and kill them all! You call that just a different method of existence? Why me? Why does it have to be me? On to our next story. A suspect being arrested for assault attacked police officers and escaped. Ahn Taeyong reports. Last night, in Guro-dong in Seoul. This was captured by the police car’s black box. An unidentified man quickly takes down two officers. The officers lose consciousness and the suspect flees the scene. Only the suspect’s back was captured. The police state that based on his fighting skills, he is likely a martial artist and are seeking witnesses. – With KTN News… / – Wow, look at that action. Sorry. You know I just don’t think sometimes. Just sometimes? I guess not. All the time. Very frequently. Right? Anyway, you totally could have caught those guys. They’ll be back. What is their deal? They act tough but they can’t fight. Either attack en masse or something. Hyeonu, I have a question. What? Never mind. What about the pills? – Are you out already? / – Yes. I’ve had many long-hour surgeries. They’re on my desk. Take them with you. And you maximized the atesine dosage, right? Yes. The strongest possible. What a jerk! How could he be so irresponsible? But the surgery ended perfectly. He really is incredibly skilled. That’s not the point! Did he make a formal apology? No. He doesn’t seem to think he did anything wrong. I’m telling you. He’s a psychopath. A psychopath. I’m stunned. The surgery department must discipline him. It’s not like our pushing it will get him disciplined The director is backing him. I think the director was very upset too. Really? I heard there was an unfortunate event yesterday. Why does this hospital feel unfortunate so much? Look here, Chief Park! I’m sorry. I’m a little late. You’re all busy, so I’ll make it quick. These are the files of the patients in 21A who you will be treating. Since it is a meaningful day, the chairman has asked that I bring these to you personally and ask you to treat them respectfully. Please take good care of the patients in 21A. Do you have anything else to say? No. Then I’ll get going too. Yes, Professor. I will also… Chief, about the surgery scheduled for tomorrow… About Mr. Park Gideok… Because of the edema, we’ll have to push back the surgery. The O.R. isn’t available for two days. I think you can proceed as scheduled based on… Pardon? You don’t have many pictures of you working, do you? Okay, let me take one. Click. Hello. You wanted to talk to me? Please excuse our Team Two from treating and operating on patients of Ward 21A. – Why is that? / – We don’t have enough manpower to cover them. We have surgeries backed up, too. It’s not because of the patients? Treating the patients in Ward 21A is pretty much volunteer work. That’s not what the chief means. It’s to focus on the regular patients… That’s fine. Go ahead then. Since Chief Park Jisang accepted it without complaint, I assumed you would as well, Chief. Altruism is something you’re born with. There are people like Chief Park who volunteered in Kochenia and risked his life. I’ll get going now. The chairman is coming to Ward 21A’s opening. I don’t think we had enough supporting evidence. Why didn’t you say anything, Professor Lee? You were just drinking your juice. Is it that good? I was thinking about what to say, and he left. He’s so quick. Goodness. – Drink. / – Yes. – Do I seem like a lunatic? / – Yes. Think about it. He’s as cold as a corpse and all the machines broke. He disappears right before an urgent operation, and fights in the middle of the street. Well, it kind of looks like him. It doesn’t look clear. I knew I shouldn’t have told you, but I thought I’d go crazy… You shouldn’t have told me. I may become a lunatic too. I’m telling you the truth. Rita, do you want to take a trip somewhere nice? Let’s go clear our heads. You’re overworked. You’re stressed out! Forget it! And you are my best friend? I’m not talking to you. Hey! Hey, Sister. Are you mad? Hey, Yoo Chaeun! Do you want to take a trip? This never should have came into the world! The less you know about something, the more fearful you become. With a clear objective and bold process, one will achieve a great discovery. No, this isn’t a great discovery, but a catastrophe. My little intellectual curiosity almost destroyed the world. We must get rid of them all. We are doctors. What is wrong with protecting human life? The objective doesn’t justify everything. Another life may be sacrificed for our objective. No, that’s unavoidable for this research! You just don’t understand! You, Hyeonseo and Seonyeong work in the lab so you may not know, but I operate on people in the clinic! I try my best! But numerous people die every day. But there is nothing I can do. Accepting that is also what a doctor must do. Doctors aren’t gods. Why can’t we become gods? Gods live forever. Isn’t it unfair that humans are mortal? I don’t mean to challenge the gods. I’m saying we should make it fair. That isn’t it. It’s because of your greed. As of today, you are no longer my mentee. I won’t share a single drop of the sample or a single document with you. I’ll destroy them all. Hyeonseo and Seonyeong agree with me. So, don’t come see us again. I’ve already taken some samples. I have saved some in my body, too. I’m sorry I did it without your permission. You… If you refuse, I’ll have to talk to Hyeonseo and Seonyeong. I said they both agree with me. They will never… I came to give you a chance, not to make a request. If Hyeonseo and Seonyeong also refuse this chance, I’ll have no other choice. Never. VBT-01 must not be released… I’ll repay you for your limitless kindness with my success. I haven’t repaid you for your kindness yet. I won’t waste any more time. As a final push, I’ll bet everything. Everything. Why didn’t we call some reporters and brag a little? A free ward would be big news. You know our chairman. He wanted it to be run quietly. Why can’t the left hand know what the right does? Gosh. But I didn’t see Chief Park Jisang… Whatever. I don’t want to even think about that jerk anymore. Why are you so overreacting? Overreacting? What are you talking about? Just thinking about him makes me angry. It’s frustrating to see me begging to live when there is no hope, isn’t it? You must have seen many people like me, so please understand. I will. Honestly, it’s not that I want to extend this harsh life. It’s because of my daughter Suyeon. I want to stay with her even if it’s just one more day. I need to walk her down the aisle. But I guess I can’t. Her birthday is coming up. I hope I’ll be clear-headed until then. I really hope I’ll be clear-headed. If you help me, I will give you a small gift. If there is any research proposal that you submitted that was rejected, or a research you’d like to conduct, I’ll support you 100 percent. It’s a shame. I thought you’d agree to help me. I’m sorry. You came all the way here for nothing. My promise to support you is not insignificant. It isn’t… but I don’t want to be dragged into the game I don’t want to be a part of. You don’t like the new drug development team and research that the chairman set up by himself, do you? The chairman won’t say anything. So as the Vice Director you must feel very frustrated. I care only for the hospital and the pharmaceutical company. If that’s the case, I apologize for what I just said. That’s just how I feel. I’m too busy being a doctor, so I can’t be in your game. Now tell me. What? I’m very sick, aren’t I? I don’t have much left to live, right? I told you, that’s not true. I can tell from the look in your eyes and how your mouth twitches that you’re lying. That’s when I was young. You’re wrong. It’s true, you are not well. You’re in the hospital because you are not well. I knew I could trust our handsome doctor. But the fact that you are not well doesn’t mean you don’t have much left to live. You can be honest with me. What’s wrong with going to be with God a little sooner? It isn’t time to go yet. Tell Him to wait a little longer. Chief. Are you suddenly trying to kiss up to me? You know I have no reason to do that. Then why did you say such a thoughtful lie? Are you trying to get me to thank you? That isn’t it either. – Then? / – We’re even. Even? What do you mean? Drunken state. Technically speaking, he was totally hammered. He had a drink and was sprawled out on the street. Right, that. Let me ask you. Why did you lie for me? You could have got me in a trouble for a while. I could’ve made it a long time, not just for a while. Tell me, why did you do it? I felt sorry for you. The saddest thing in the world is not being able to say you’re sick, and… And what? Nothing. That’s all. Satisfied? Are you positive I’m sick? Look here, Chief. This is a hospital and I’m a doctor. Of course I’m positive that you’re sick. It’s just that I’m not sure what’s wrong. Mr. Nam Dongpal. Are you the doctor who will help me? I’ll listen to everything you say from now on. So please let me have just one bottle of soju. Please? Hey. Was that directed at me? What is it? Since when did any random bum from the street can come in and take blood samples from a patient? You think that’s funny? Who said you could… The chairman and director permitted it. They permitted us to take blood samples of patients. That’s absurd. How dare you recklessly touch my patient… I didn’t recklessly touch them, and you’re the one speaking recklessly. What did you just say? – What the… / – Ms. Seo. Please apologize to Professor Yoo. She is the one who was rude to me first. Please apologize. Please apologize. Hey! Stop right there! Why that woman… Please calm down. As if I don’t have enough. What’s happening here? Ward 21A is unique. There are security cameras everywhere, a second door at the entrance, and a security console. Why didn’t I notice them? Really? The current patients are different, but Ward 21A was originally meant for VVIPs and is the most high-tech ward. That’s why there are so many security measures. The second door is protection from the outside danger. The outside danger? You think zombies will storm in or something? Do you have any further questions? – No. / – Okay, then. Excuse me. What is it? Hey. What’s wrong? You gave the pharmaceutical people access to patients? Yes. I gave the director full authority. That’s absurd. How could pharmaceutical employees enter patient rooms? No hospital allows that. There you go, getting angry first. You agreed too. I agreed to working together, not an unreasonable violation of boundaries. We will all benefit from this. That’s what the director thinks, too. Uncle, you trust the director way too much. What if he’s doing this for his personal gain? You little brat. You need to be a better judge of character. Uncle. Other than the two of us, only the vice director… I mean, Aunt Gyeongin, is on our side. – I know. / – Then help her more. Back her up. Fine, I will. Happy? I wish this were soju. Our doctor is so good-looking. – Do you drink? / – Be quiet. Doctor, please take good care of me. The tumor isn’t small, but once we remove it, it shouldn’t hinder your daily life. There is no real joy in living, but there is no reason to die either. – Then do you want to die? / – Pardon? Well, no… Not exactly. How long has it been like this? Since this morning. Does it hurt? It feels a little stiff. Is it really bad? Yes? You came to me in person just because of this? I can’t be sure if it’s an infection or a side effect of a drug. What did you give him? Vanocin and camizoline. It doesn’t look like it would be a reaction from those. It’s most likely a minor infection. I’ll take a look at it myself. Thank you. But you keep confusing me as to your concept. I’m surprised you asked me for help for a patient. I can’t play forever. Hello. Have you and Chief Park Jisang gotten close? No. He just seems like a weirdo. I hear his nickname in his department is “Psypa.” Psychopath. No, I think he is just a weird guy with a lot on his mind. Right. Here. – I’ll get going now. / – Okay. What’s wrong? Are you okay? Yes. No! What are you doing? Give that to me. You won’t let me drink alcohol. I need to drink at least this. Do you know what this is? This is poisonous. Give it to me! I said, give it to me! Oh my gosh! – Are you okay? / – Yes. Even if he wants alcohol, that’s isopropyl alcohol. Don’t tie him up or isolate him. Give him 2mg of Lorazepam every six hours. – Just until tomorrow. / – Okay. What is this mess? What? Are you out of your mind? We agreed to stop Project VTLC16! But that had the highest probability of success. It did, until the last minute. It killed the virus genes, so it looked good. But it then killed all the normal cells. I said let’s look into why they kill the normal cells. We couldn’t find the answer anyway! It was impossible then, and it’s is the same now! You know what will happen if we turn that into a vaccine and inject it into you. The virus will be destroyed and you’ll be human for one or two days. But after that, every cell in your body will die from head to toe. And you will die within two days. So don’t even think about it. – Let’s try anyway! / – Jisang! Even if we fail, at least I’ll die as human. Are you out of your mind? How could you say that after all I’ve done for you? Gosh… Poor thing. Shall we take a look? When did the marks disappear? This morning. They disappeared in a day. Does it hurt anywhere? No. Not at all. – Did you have a blood test done? / – Of course. She took like seven or eight vials. That pretty lady. It’s impossible for it to disappear so quickly. I know. I find it strange too. Hemorrhage and hemostasis can’t clear up in a day. I heard the pharmaceutical people took quite a bit of blood samples. They’re enjoying themselves, aren’t they? You’re here again. Oh no! I’m sorry. What are they? Are they infectious disease samples? No, they are normal blood samples. I’ll go back to that patient. Don’t come closer! I said not to come closer! Snap out of it! How could you do this to people who are helping us? Look, Mr. Nam Dongpal. Put that down. That doesn’t solve anything. If you keep this up, we’ll have to discharge you. – What’s going on? / – It’s alcohol withdrawal. He’s hallucinating and hearing things. What is he here for? HCC. His alcoholism is so bad that when he came here, he snuck in a bottle of soju. Yesterday, he tried to drink isopropyl alcohol. We gave him Lorazepam, but we can’t control him. Doctor? It hurts. Doctor. It hurts. Where is my drink? You took it, right? My drink! Give me my drink! Calm down! You and your drink. You have liver cancer. You can’t drink alcohol. I’ll give you something to sleep. Do you want to sleep? I’ll give you your drink. I’m the one who hid it. So put that down and let’s go get it, with me. Everyone, back off. Do you know what you’re doing? I’m going to isolate you. I’ll kill you all! I’ll kill you all! Are you okay? Chief. Chief. It was an open wound, but it started to close up… So what will you do? You’re going to check? You can’t operate in your current state. I was almost killed by a pack of wild dogs here. Do whatever you want with Park Jisang. I’ll accept judgment and punishment once the results are out. You’re beyond controlling your thirst for blood. You must depend on your will rather than the drug now.
