Even though his family was full of doctors, Oh Chang-min gave up his medical internship and began working as a pharmaceutical salesman. However, his married life was not going well and his family kept looking down on Oh Jin-hee. Not only that, but as time went by he also started to change and began to think terribly of Oh Jin-hee. Eventually, they decide to part ways and get divorced.
After their divorce, Oh Jin-hee becomes a medical student and works as an intern. Oh Chang-min, who graduated from medical school, also begins to work as an intern. Later, they meet each other in the emergency room of the hospital where they would be working together.

Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice is a drama that was aired in 2014 on MBC. In this drama, Choi Jin-hyuk acted as Goo Dong-chi, a man who passed the bar exam right after high school and became a prosecutor at the age of 21. He sharpened his skills of figuring out what other people are really thinking with his brilliant mind and over ten years of experience since he became a prosecutor, even as he keeps his own private thoughts inscrutable and enjoys the perks of the bureaucratic system.
Later, he had to work with Han Yeol-mu, a prosecutor-in-training who was once a detective but decided to become a prosecutor because of her dogged pursuit of truth and justice. Together with the veteran prosecutor Moon Hee-man, investigator Kang Soo, and unemployed gambler Jung Chang-gi, they form a team of “loser prosecutors” who fight for innocent, poor, and powerless citizens.
Quite different from the mood of Emergency Couple, now we can see the charismatic Choi Jin-hyuk as a prosecutor who works in the legal department. However, we can’t leave out his sweetness again in the romantic scenes in the drama! Here are a few clips of the drama:
