Dr. Romantic (2016)

You can blame the system or the world. You can blame all the people who messed up the world if you want. However, nothing will change even if you try so hard to blame everything. Those people won’t even remember your name. If you really want to win, be a doctor who can serve. Stop blaming them and pay them back with your capability. – Master Kim
