Sorry everyone for being late, I applied for a full time position at my job and I have been working late recently.
I am going to be switching things around by doing a review today on a Korean drama I have been currently been watching. I recently got back into watching asian dramas. I normally only watch them when I sick, but I picked them up again.
Today, I will be reviewing the first episode of Doctors aka Doctor Crush. This is a new drama that came out earlier this year. It has twenty episodes all which are an hour long and I will be reviewing all the episodes. It is considered a romance and medical drama with some comedy on the side.
Kim Rae-won as Hong Ji-hong
Park Shin-hye as Yoo Hye-jeng
Soon Kyun-sang as Jung Yoon-do
Lee Sung-kyung as Jin Seo-woo
It is Yoo Hye-jeng’s first day as a doctor at Gookil Hospital. Flashback to when she was a delinquent in high school and meeting Hong Ji-hong changes her life.
The first episode does a wonderful job at opening up the drama for the person watching. While you might not know who the characters are and what role they have in the drama, watchers do get insight on who they are as a person before they meet Hye-jeng. Watchers also see how Hye-jeng changes the dynamic at school and at Granny’s house. While we do not know how much time has exactly passed; I assumed it was three to four days in episode one, Hye-jeng’s relationship with Granny is gradual and expected from someone who just moved in.
The suspension of disbelief is there and the storyline of every character we meet is believable to an extent. Park Shin-hye’s acting is well done and how she portrays the anger, hate, and emotional conflicts inside her makes watchers feel for her character. I cried, I felt like I was crying with her. The dialogue is well done and never feels out of place for each character. Everyone does a wonderful job at pulling watchers in fore more.
I am excited to see how these characters will develop and grow with each other in the environment that they are in.
