Netflix series Daily Dose of Sunshine has received a positive response since its release on the 3rd of the month.
The series follows the experiences of Da Eun (Park Bo Young), a nurse in her third year, as she starts working in a psychiatric ward. Departing from the traditional Korean medical dramas that have primarily focused on doctors’ struggles, this drama delves into the patient’s stories from the perspective of a nurse, depicting mental illnesses as something that can affect anyone.
It has been well-received for naturally portraying various mental disorders and their symptoms visually, while offering a warm and empathetic perspective for those experiencing psychiatric disorders.
Let’s take a look at the viewers’ reactions.
정신병동 완결 ! ⛅️
인생드 부동의 1위가 괜사인 여성 정신병동 인생드 됨 . . 현실적인 고충과 마음 따뜻해지는 휴머니즘을 밸런스있게 잘 다뤘고 연출이 동화 느낌도 나면서 수위 조절도 잘함 실제 병원에서 데려온 듯한 배우들 연기와 마냥 무겁지 않게 코믹도 많고 대중적으로 잘 접근한 웰메이드 pic.twitter.com/B25zvsGsCz

“Done watching Daily Dose of Sunshine!
Daily Dose of Sunshine is my new fave drama after It’s Okay, That’s Love. It’s got the perfect mix of realism and heartwarming stories. The whole vibe is like a fairy tale but with real-life struggles, and the actors totally rock it without getting too serious. Well-made, tons of laughs, and it’s for everyone to enjoy”

Aside from being fantastic in raising awareness abt mental health, it also showed the life of doctors/nurses/staffs in a realistic way as possible

This drama depicts everyone's struggles very realistically and made me empathize throughout the story. There was no exaggeration, everything just feels so right. All the actors have done a great job in bringing their characters to life too. LOVED IT SM.

“I then complimented myself for complimenting myself. I learned that complimenting myself is more rewarding than receiving compliments from others.”#DailyDoseofSunshine is such a blessing for us who are losing everything for a certain and personal reason… pic.twitter.com/iFMxoSLcMD
