Shadowy corridors and kisses in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’s first teaser

 photo RD1.jpg

Time flies when amazing shows are on TV. So I barely registered October flying past, but now it’s almost November, and we have a whole batch of new dramas coming out. Among them is SBS’s new medical drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, starring Han Seok-kyu (Secret Door) as the titular character, and popular actors Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Seo Hyun-jin (Oh Hae-young Again) co-starring as his support staff.

Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is about a brilliant medical genius who is also a bit of an eccentric crackpot. He is the first and only triple-board certified surgeon in Korea, meaning that he is an expert in three different specialties, when most doctors spend their whole lives devoted to mastering one. Originally, he was revered as the rising star of the nation’s top hospital, but due to a traumatic incident, he makes the decision to step down and work at a small rural clinic to help treat the ailments of the elderly and underprivileged. Despite not acting in a contemporary drama for 21 years, Han Seok-kyu says in a Naver V App interview that he believes he can imbue this character with the warmth and well-meaning heart of a doctor. He will act as a mentor to two younger doctors played by Yoo Yeon-seok and Seo Hyun-jin when they are assigned to come to his hospital.

Yoo Yeon-seok plays an ambitious go-getter with a cold but charismatic personality. His counterpart, Seo Hyun-jin, on the other hand, plays a more timid character who initially started her medical career because people would compliment her for working toward it. Together under Teacher Kim, they learn the true meaning of being a doctor and the joys of bringing healing to patients.

In the recently released first teaser, Han Seok-kyu walks down a darkened corridor while his voiceover says: “When you come to my neck of the woods, there’s only one rule. We must save our patients no matter what happens. Everything else can go to hell, but we must save them.” An angry-sounding Yoo Yeon-seok yells back, “Who are you, a washed up gangster? What’s your true identity, a gambling addict or an emergency department specialist?” Then we see a couple shots of the hospital, a car crash, and Han Seok-kyu showing off his mastery with a scalpel, giving it a little spin. And how can I leave out that hot moment when Yoo Yeon-seok swoops in to kiss Seo Hyun-jin? (Squee, I can’t wait to find out how that situation comes about.) The short but mystery-packed teaser ends with Han Seok-kyu finally giving a straight reply to Yoo Yeon-seok’s question: “My real identity is Teacher Kim. Satisfied?”

Additionally on the promo front, the thirty-minute V app interview had all three actors sitting informally in the hospital chief’s room on set, introducing their characters, talking about their experiences working together, and giving their insights about the drama. Also last week, Moon Ji-yin (Doctors) posted a photo with the Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim cast, saying that she had a great time filming her cameo for the first episode. All in all, it looks like this new medical drama is getting off to a pretty solid start.

Hopefully, Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim will begin on its planned premiere date, but with another baseball game planned next Monday, another episode of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo may again be postponed. SBS’s upcoming medical drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is set to start airing on November 7, as the next Monday-Tuesday drama after Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo.

This doctor's greatest achievement will be finally getting Korean surgeons to start wearing masks when there's blood spattering around.

I agree !! I am telling this fact as a doctor : the one thing that doctors hates the MOST is BLOOD, specifically patients' blood on our faces/hands/etc. Hence we wear gloves, gowns, masks. The moment we get blood on our bare skin, we go and wash it off , stat.

I love Korean medical dramas, but this blood-on-the-face thing irritates me no end.

And there goes too many medical dramas within a close time span. I am feeling so drained out from watching Moon Lovers, I think I need a detox with something light and fuzzy.

You can try Shopping King Louis, it is lighthearted, funny and warmhearted....many scenes will make you go "awwww"....do try it for at least 2 epi , as the real funny scenes actually start from epi 2 onwards (I know many viewers complained about the 1st epi :P )

Shopping King Luise

Fantastic: you can get high on imagining all the ways to punish Sul's in-laws.

1% of anything: throwback drama that's not cringe-worthy ( for now *cough Cinderella&The 4 Knights cough*)

Sassy go go

Oh dear lord, let's hope so. If things make sense at least and the actors act the crap out of everything, and the director helps things flow more, we could be okay.

Please no.

I am hoping being in a county hospital they might actually show some clinical skills instead of depending on machines. Vain hope I know.

But the acting prowness already impressed me so much more. Just need to depend on the writer. The hospital already looks so much more impressive than a backwater hospital. I would love it if they have no ICU and see what happens.

Han Seok-kyu and Seo Hyun-jin loveline must prevail. Because this reminds me of Ahn Joong-geun (Lee Beom-soo) and Bong Dal-hee (Lee Yo-won) in Surgeon Bong Dal Hee (SBS, 2007). That drama, alongside King of Dramas, is the best in my opinion.

Ahn and Bong. (SBDH drama is total jjang... That's why I'm excited for this new drama!) The teacher-student relationship turned into a very great lovestory. Ahn first hated her and looked down on her, but as events unfolded, he liked her but pretended he did not... Ahhh... Then all the warmth and tension between them. Good heavens, the thought of their explosive chemistry (but maintaining professionalism). I swear I can't find a flaw.

Han Seok-kyu & Seo Hyun-jin, please push through a loveline! Fighting!

As a general rule, I try to avoid Medical Dramas because I get enuf of it as a Doc myself. Its like, I live in the hospital already, and when I get home, still hospitals? I dont even watch Grey's anymore since Med School. House was the last one I watched but I didn't even finish the last season.

But since finishing fellowship, I have a lot of time now before clinic set up and boards. LOL. So,for Kdramas, I did try out Doctors, but it got so boring and disappointing... I hope this wont be the case for this one.

i always wonder if dramas ever consider having an expert on hand...because you know, it might be helpful in making things more realistic. i cringe when it comes to shows in settings like hospitals or courtrooms because i am already expecting inaccuracies. on a different note, i do like the cast in this drama...hehehe.

If that's so, I would contest that JO HYUN-JAE is (still) the official leading man imprinted in my mind for Seo Hyun-jin. That drama is the best.

For this drama, I do hope it's a loveline between Han Seok-kyu and Seo Hyun-jin. Sigh!

oh please another doctor drama??. I am a doctor myself but I found anything medical in k-dramas are mostly misleading and misrepresenting. some bored me to death with their unrealistic plot. Kdrama should lean from japanese dramas which are much more accurate in depicting real medical situation.

hmmm.... undecided about this one, will probably read recaps or watch a few episodes to see if I get hooked or not.

Because right now it seems kind of flashy, but I'm wondering if it will have substance behind it as well. I think you guys will be tired of hearing me rant if the medicine goes all willy-wonka. XD

I'm a doctor and welcome with any medical drama. But I feel like most of korean drama use medical drama for making romance story. Just like in this drama, they're kissing in the hospital and wearing gawn. We are professional in our job. No matter how much we have crush to someone, I don't think a doctor can do that during their work time ><

I'll pass unless I hear good things about it. I don't care for medical dramas and the only person I'd watch it for is Seo Hyun Jin. I haven't seen enough of Han Seok kyu to care and I don't like Yoo Yeon Suk.
