Code Blue (Drama)


Genre: Drama, Medical

The drama's full title is "Code Blue: Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei." The concept is based on Japan's proposal for an emergency medical service using helicopters to quickly reach those in need. A special bill was passed in June 2007 that should foster widespread adoption of the system. Yamashita Tomohisa, Aragaki Yui, Toda Erika and Asari Yosuke, star as young doctors-in-training, working under the guidance of an experienced "flight doctor" (Toshiro Yanagiba). Some scenes will be filmed with a real helicopter, adding to the show's tension. Credits: tokyograph

My Progress
I wasn't really keen on watching this one due to my feelings of how Yamashita-san and Aragaki-san acts. But hey, I'm watching it! And oddly, they might have excelled in acting for this one. I am yet to see how this one goes, but it looks very promising. And with all the medical jargon they are saying, I'm glad I understand most of them...hehehe... yay!

It was a feel good movie with two eye candies!! I think that the two male characters were better than the female character, but heck, it was an o.k movie with good music. Oh! And the guy who played the doctor in Snow Queen is here as the girl's younger brother... he looks so young and he fits the role, even though he's 20-ish!... Uwaah... cool!
