Prescribing a dose of hope

Every so often in drama land, I would come across a gem of a drama that’s so low key, unassuming and totally under the radar. This drama truly is one of those rare gems, and I’m so fortunate and glad to have discovered it. When I chanced upon this show, I thought it was going to be similar to say Doctors (SK), Surgeons (China) or even Grey’s Anatomy (US), but with the focus on pharmacists instead of doctors, which piqued my curiosity because it’s never been done before as far as I’m aware. It turned out to be so much more than that.

Unsung Cinderella is adapted from the manga series "Unsung Cinderella Byoin Yakuzaishi Aoi Midori" by Mamare Arai. I’ve not read the manga but because of how fantastic this show is, I might just be tempted to pick up the manga, which comprises 5 volumes and still ongoing at the time of writing. This is a story about the pharmacist Aoi Midori’s experiences working at Tatsuya General Hospital. Unlike her colleagues including her peers and the higher ranked health care staff such as doctors and nurses, Midori has a big heart of gold and she’s not afraid to show it, even at the expense of crossing the boundaries of expected code of conduct and hospital regulations. She doesn’t treat her patients merely as case files, but she views them as human beings with unique circumstances and who are in need of genuine care and concern, beyond the routine impassive facade and superficial interaction when administering medication. Going beyond her scope of duty in no way diminishes her professionalism, and over the course of 11 episodes we see how her unorthodox approach actually brings added value that benefits those under her care.

Do not be fooled thinking that this drama is purely goodness and heart. From the very first minute in episode 1, I was completely caught off guard by the fast and furious action. Every episode addresses a particular medical condition concerning certain patients and is filled with action packed and fast paced scenes involving life and death situations, before slowing down to focus on the complexities of human drama. This episodic procedural format works very well by incorporating enough urgency and agency that it never gets dull or monotonous, while cases are neatly resolved within each episode.

The overarching storyline and the different cases are very creatively conceived, while the main and supporting characters are superbly written to be realistic and relatable that I cannot help but empathize with them and hence become totally invested in the show. Kudos to Mamare Arai for creating this masterpiece, and the screenwriter for adapting it into this well made production.

The producers couldn’t have selected a better cast for this production. This is my first time seeing Ishihara Satomi in a drama, having seen her in various films over the years and what a talented actress she is. She brings to life the role of Midori and in fact, she does resemble the manga character to a certain degree. Her ability to convey the nuances in the emotional moments as well as her portrayal of a health care professional is utterly convincing to me. Narita Ryo’s Onozuka Ryo is also very interesting as his role is probably the most layered and multidimensional among all the characters, with a depiction of conflicted emotions within a somewhat tortured soul, especially at the initial stages. The many guest stars also add much colour to the production with their respective portrayals of patients and their families who carry the burden of pain and suffering. I honestly thought everybody did such remarkable work, even the child actors for that matter.

Overall, this drama has been an emotional ride personally for me. I hardly ever watch slice of life but this drama has done an amazing job of depicting the despair that patients of chronic illnesses go through, only to emerge with hope and optimism, thanks to our heroine, Midori. The beautifully crafted poignant moments throughout the series certainly bring out a tear or two, I admit. I’m aware that there are concerns or even criticism over perceived lack of realism in certain scenes, which perhaps do have some merit. However, being based on a manga, I understand that this drama isn’t too engrossed in the finer details and technicalities on the roles of pharmacists and hospital administration, and I can accept that. I have truly enjoyed this live adaptation and the performance by the cast. Give this show a chance, and I think you would too.

As expected from Ishihara Satomi <3

Totally watched this for the female lead, Ishihara Satomi. She's known for pretty cool career roles such as Kouetsu Girl and Unnatural
and I was looking forward to what sort of heartwarming/inspiring career drama she would bring.

Pharmacists as lead characters is kind of new, and although honestly this idealistic Ishihara shines a little too bright for the drama title "Unsung Cinderella," this drama has really hit all the good spots I was looking for.

Each episode a different set of patients she has to take care of, and she really demonstrates the type of human nature one would hope to encounter in the healthcare setting. Total role model material.
Plus the characters just really have a lot of chemistry with one another!!! Such that at the end when there's that big build-up storyline (ep 9-11) -- the story progression is logical and satisfying to watch. The experienced actors' acting skills also really put it up top.

Would recommend to anyone who has 11 episodes' time to spare. Really nice and warm watch that will teach you a little more about the unique work of hospital pharmacists.
