K-Drama Review: Doctors (2016)

Hi all! Finally last week I finished one of the best dramas in 2016, none other than DOCTORS or DOCTOR CRUSH. This drama already gain a lot of attention because Park Shin Hye is the female lead and Kim Rae Won is the male lead :D

Doctors (Hangul: 닥터스; RR: Dakteoseu) is a 2016 South Korean medical drama television series starring Kim Rae-won and Park Shin-hye. It aired every Mondays and Tuesdays at 22:00 (KST) on SBS from June 20 to August 23, 2016 for 20 episodes.

Yoo Hye-jung (Park Shin-hye) was a wayward girl in high school with a prickly, gangster personality. Due to her many childhood scars, Hye-jung keeps her heart closed towards other people. However, she changes after meeting her mentor Hong Ji-hong (Kim Rae-won), who plays a key role in transforming her life from a "hopeless" delinquent to a compassionate doctor. They part ways subsequently but meet again after 13 years, when Yoo Hye-jung becomes a doctor.

Overall Thoughts:
When I heard about this drama at first, I instantly frowned and wondering why Park Shin Hye is paired with Kim Rae Won? Well I like Kim Rae Won but he's much older than Park Shin Hye, so it's little bit weird. Nah, after I watched the 1st episode, I found out that Hong Ji Hong is Yoo Hye Jung's homeroom teacher, who is 9 years old older than Hye Jung, and suddenly it made sense LOL.

First, Park Shin Hye's role as high school delinquent amazed me a lot, because she's good in martial arts and she has tough personality. Second, Kim Rae Won's role is as warm as sunshine, at the same time he's a charming neurosurgeon who is expert in surgery room.

Its storyline doesn't fluctuate much but I love it! The story was flowing nicely, from one patient to another patient and brought so much nice morale lessons afterwards. Some of my friends displeased with the lack of exaggerating dramatize scenes in this drama but I had no problem with it. LOL.
Kim Rae won & Park Shin Hye also got nice chemistry though their kissing scenes were little bit stiff and not so natural :p :p
This series is quite addictive and totally enjoyable! ^___^ Their OSTs are great as well! I can play their songs all day :P haha

Rating: 8 / 10

Have you watched this drama as well?
What do you think? :D
Thanks for reading!
