DOCTORS - EPISODE 1


You've seen the press releases by now. If you haven't, the basics are that a lost teenager (with a planet-sized chip on her shoulder) becomes a doctor. This drama is her story. The players?

Park Shin Hye as Yoo Hye Jung

She's had a rough life. Of course, her thug-like behavior doesn't make it easy for anyone to tame the shrew. She's been dropped off at grandma's, and hopefully the elder will succeed where her father failed.

Kim Rae Won as Hong Ji Hong

Her new teacher has his work cut out him. His job (though he doesn't know it yet) is to take this intransigent teen and make a doctor out of her. He's ideal, in a way, as he was a doctor himself, and his ailing dad is the president of the local hospital.

Kim Young Ae as Mal Soon, Hye Jung's grandmother

It falls to Mal Soon to try and get Hye Jung to shape up. Good luck with that. She used to be on the wrong side of the tracks herself -- a former prostitute. She knows what road Hye Jung's heading down.

Jang Hae Gyun as Yoo Min Ho - Hye Jung's father

He's given up, though according to Hye Jung he's not been a great father. After she gets expelled (despite his begging for more chances), he knows his last hope is Grandma. I'm willing to bet we won't see much of him anymore. 




Obviously there's more to it, but that can wait. There are fistfights, battles with two sets of girl gangsters, underage drinking, and the teacher's initial attempts to set this girl on the right path. There is a part at the beginning which obviously features her as the tough-as-nails doctor who opens a can of whoop-ass on a bunch of thugs. I wonder if this flash-forward will be a regular thing?

First thoughts? This thing is action-packed. When she's not throwing punches, she's giving a merciless tongue-lashing to whoever's unlucky enough to encounter her. And the teacher?  To say he's unconventional is understating the point. When she insists she's not a student, he aggressively demands they date. Which gets her upset enough to admit that she is a student, natch -- his plan all along.

It's hilarious and exciting all at once. Now I literally can't wait for the next episode -- and that's tonight! Until next time, my readers.

I really enjoyed the first episode recommend it . Thumbs up for the effort from the cast.

" I wonder if this flash-forward will be a regular thing" It was a flashback... not flash-forward.  Flashbacks are often used to recount events that happened before the story's primary sequence of events to fill in crucial backstory.

This is better than DOTS. DOTS WAS SOOO BOTING!!! OTHER DRAMA LIKE SIGNAL IS MUCH BETTER.

yup_yup_aish Danny1009 Tuesday, June 21, 2016

dots was fun at the start, later it got boring and beyond. for me signal is a drama, which i really want a second season for, it was too good. and another miss oh is one of the dramas you can actually watch to the last episode, and feel like each episode was needed.

Danny1009 yup_yup_aish Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Yeah. That's so true. I watch Dots and it's getting bored after just 4 episode. I still don't get why the drama was so overrated. Maybe it's because of Song Joong Ki. Other drama was way much better than DOTS. 😂😂

I could tell it was going to be good from the teasers that I saw on Instagram. I'm not watching any korean dramas at the moment, but I will watch this and more that are coming out later this year omg!

StayWithMe Tuesday, June 21, 2016

IT'S SOOO GOOOD GUYS! I AM RECOMMENDING IT SO BADLY!!

atlkpopfan Tuesday, June 21, 2016

I wanted to watch this because it seems like the first time I've seen Park Shin Hye not play the same character over and over and over again (despite having different occupation her personality and delivery is pretty much always the same on screen).  My concern is that the first few episodes she'll be bad a** and then afterwards she'll revert back to the same type of character she's always played (with flashbacks of a character I'd rather be watching thrown in).

I have watched kdrama where character can beat anyone, and then later suddenly she gets in trouble and is weak. I hope it does not happen here.

atlkpopfan emminator Thursday, June 23, 2016

Same here. It's so annoying. It sends the message that a woman can only be weak in the face of a man. I'd rather they both be strong together.

nami_chan Tuesday, June 21, 2016

I want to watch it but I don't want to lose my time if it's more of the same. So..is it really woth watching or just akp exaggerating?

StayWithMe nami_chan Tuesday, June 21, 2016

OMGOSH IT'S SO FUCKIN GOOD!! I just saw the first EPISODE OMG YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT!! YOU WONT REGRET IT!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE GiRL haha

It really is good imo! Park Shin Hye is a trying a totally different character and the all the characters of the story are unique and likeable. The plot is quite good and different and the love story is pretty uncommon. It will also have alot of characters growing and the plot will change too, and if I'm not wrong this was a prefilmed drama, and that usually helps the actors to develop their characters well and helps the plot go smother. So in my opinion, this is going to be great!

nami_chan StayWithMe Tuesday, June 21, 2016

haha awesome then I going to watch it , thanks =)

nami_chan iisstf28 Tuesday, June 21, 2016

well if it's that good then I'm going to watch the drama, it sounds interesting. Thanks ^^
