Set in a university hospital, Behind The White Tower follows one brilliant doctor’s relentless pursuit of his ambition to its conclusion. By microscopically depicting the hidden side of the medical profession, it sheds light on a variegated spectrum of human types. The show recounts the friendship and conflict between two male doctors, one with a brilliant gift for his craft and the other with an innate warmth and a firm devotion to the healing art, and tenaciously investigates the lust for power that moves human beings in the White tower that is the university hospital.

been a long time since I have seen that one. maybe I need to rewatch and the other medical dramas

@marygrether1_gmail_c You definetely should especially this one and let other people know we have it here as well.
We need more followers in order to make sure we won’t lose the licence any time soon.
Its one of the soompi dramas we got and we don’t have any guarranties we will have them for years to come. Thats why I have posted this thread here.

so viki doesnt keep those licenses? or the other places then they lose the right to have them? wow now I understand why I am not able to find some I have been looking for! thanks for that info, yes I will go there now. that was a good show!

Probably a license comes for a definite amount of time: X years for instance. Then when the time is up, they can renew it, if they find that there is a demand, or not renew it.
For instance, you see some old dramas that are still here, because people keep watching them. Either the license was for a very long time, or it kept being renewed.


Honestly, I wasn’t hooked with first episodes but after watching more ep, it got really interesting !
It’s a serious drama that can apply even 10 or 20 years later, the theme of this drama would still be an issue for medical professions.
Almost every detail from certain episodes was really important. I became aware of it later and I was really impressed by how some details, certain scenes were well thought.
This drama also shows how hard it is to prove the truth when many obstacles, people come in the way.

The end was unexepected for me, total suspense from the middle until the end.
A great surprise, didn’t expect this to be so interesting.
