One of the most popular drama series on KIKU is Doctors (Saikyou no Meii). We just began airing the third season of this series this past Monday at 8pm.

Some would say that the show’s popularity is due to the handsome actor, Ikki Sawamura, who stars as the highly principled and capable Dr. Sagara. Dr. Sagara is employed at Dogami General Hospital, a private facility that is struggling to regain its integrity amid a reputation of greed and corrupt management practices. Dr. Sagara’s nemesis at the hospital is the director’s nephew, Dr. Suguru Moriyama, played by actor Masanobu Takashima. The two are constantly at odds over hospital practices and patient treatments.

In my opinion, Masanobu Takashima is the real star of the show. He plays an immature, self-centered, spoiled doctor yearning for attention and acknowledgment. He’s such a good actor because each episode makes you hate Dr. Moriyama and his selfish tactics even more. But you also see a vulnerable side to him that makes him likeable, too.

What do you think? Do you love him or hate him?

Ja, ne!

    Masanobu Takashima does a wonderful job playing Dr. Moriyama, the guy you just love to hate. My husband and I look forward to watching Doctors 3 every week, just to see what evilness he is up to next. The best was when he got off the bus at the wrong stop (Dougami Hair Salon). Masanobu Takashima makes a very good villain; we love him in Sanada Maru, also.
