Starring Han Suk-Kyu as Teacher Kim, Yoo Yeon-Seok as Kang Dong-Joo and Seo Hyun-Jin as Yoon Seo-Jung in the main roles. The supporting cast consists of many well known faces/names within the Korean drama sphere as well as some talented newcomers.
Well…I’ve done it once again! I jumped on the wagon that is current K-dramas and started watching Romantic Doctor Kim after weeks of seeing snippets and stills on my twitter feed. Spoiled due to watching my recent dramas in marathon mode, I am proud to have held out until the last episode aired. Specially since there was so much buzz about this drama making it extremely tempting to watch it weekly as it aired.
I’m only about 3 episodes in but can already say that the aforementioned buzz about the drama appears to be completely warranted. So much happened during the first 2 episodes that I caught myself checking about halfway through each episode, thinking I reached the end of it because of an apparent cliffhanger.
Both Kang Dong-Joo and Yoon Seo-Jung have already undergone so many changes as characters, evolving in perfect sync with the ever forwards moving story line. Once again we find ourselves with main characters that are far from perfect, experience failure through mistakes made and work hard to improve at their chosen profession (like people in real life).
