This winter, one drama is making a record of high rating.
Its title is "JIN".
It's originally from a comic book series.
The brief summary of the story is like this:
The main character called Jin is a brain surgeon.

One day he operated on a critical patient.
After the operation the patient tried to run away from the hospital and Jin run after him.
