Alright, I am back to give my review on episodes 4 – 7 of Unsung Cinderella: Byoin Yakuzaishi no Shoboshi. If you haven’t read my previous review, use this link 👉🏼 Unsung Cinderella: Byoin Yakuzaishi no Shoboshi: Drama Review – Episode 1 – 3
(warning – spoilers ahead)
Episodes four to seven showcased how Aoi Midori’s approach to being a pharmacist influences her closest co-workers and patients. Everyone learns something new after meeting her. That is why we got into the stories of side characters like Hakura and Aihara.
Hakura’s issue with his dad was an excellent way to stress that every individual should be independent of other people’s negative stigma on their profession or lifestyle in general. Being a doctor would have probably given Hakura more prestige, but a hospital doesn’t need only doctors. Therefore no matter the medical line you fall into, you are still fully involved in saving a life. Thankfully, Hakura gained confidence in his profession through Aoi Midori’s help, and his father also learnt some well-deserved lessons.
In Aihara’s case, she’s finally intrigued to pursue pharmacy with more passion after seeing Aoi interact with numerous patients. Plus, she now wants to focus on anti-cancer medication. At first, Aihara had difficulty connecting with patients or being discreet with her facial expressions. However, after paying more attention and heeding to great advice, she’s gotten better. Aihara’s growth is still a working progress, and I want to see how far the writer develops this character before the drama wraps up.
I am genuinely enjoying the presence of almost every character in this drama. Everyone (lead, supporting cast & patients) plays a vital role in bringing this heartwarming series to life. The stories of each patient are always lesson filled and so touching. Minoshima Koharu’s battle with leukemia and the cancer patient’s family was the most memorable aspect of episodes four to seven.
Now the only character that I do not appreciate so far is Dr. Nanao. He seems to be all about personal achievement rather than caring for patients. The fact that there might be doctors like him in real life irks me. In these episodes, he steadfastly tried to push a trial drug on a patient that didn’t want the treatment. All new medicines get tested at some point, but his intentions weren’t pure. Plus, the way he nitpicks at every little thing is quite annoying.
Before I round, am I the only one that feels Seno likes Aoi? I don’t care much for a love connection in this drama, but he sends signals that I can’t overlook. Also, the preview was scary. I hope Seno doesn’t have a terminal disease🙏🏽. However, no matter what the writer decides to do, I will still be watching because I am enjoying Unsung Cinderella: Byoin Yakuzaishi no Shoboshi.
That’s is all for this review. If you’re currently watching this drama, what do you think of the story so far? Let me know in the comment section.
