Premiere Watch: Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2

Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Broadcaster: SBS
Genre: Medical, human
Episode count: 16 episodes

Han Seok-kyu is back as the quirky genius Teacher Kim for the second season of Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim. After three years, we return to Doldam Hospital and Teacher Kim has two new proteges, played by Lee Sung-kyung and Ahn Hyo-seop. They’re both second-year fellows, and that’s about all they have in common. Lee is studious, with her skills being a result of countless hours of effort and studying. In contrast, Ahn Hyo-seop has never had to study hard in his life, and his talents as a surgeon seem to be a divine gift. Under the tutelage of Teacher Kim, they’ll come to learn some valuable life lessons in addition to medical skills. The drama takes a human approach to the stories of patients and hospital staff, with this season covering dire diagnoses, faked deaths, and more in ways that are heartwarming and comedic. Though not all of the main players from season one are back, most of the supporting cast, as well as the original PD (Yoo In-shik) and writer Kang Eun-kyung are back for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2.

I really loved the first season! Hoping this one will live up to my expectations. I'm so glad Kim Sa-bu and the other supporting cast have returned, as well as its director and writer <3

Omg, I barely recognized Ahn Hyo-seop! Heโ€™s gained some much needed weight and totally looks different here than when he was in 30 but 17. I need the rest of the 1st episode subbed on Viki! But what Iโ€™ve seen I like so far.

I never watched the first season (not a fan of medical dramas) but I've just discovered Ahn Hyo-seop from another couple dramas I've watched recently and liked him so we'll give it a try. It looks somewhat promising, as in something different and not the same old, same old...?? Hopefully...??

The premiere was good and zippy. It felt just right. The writing and tone seemed similar to the first season, but then I remembered Duh! It's by the same writer (and PD!). ^^

Han Seok Kyu is so charismatic. I love him as Kim Sabu. I'm like the 4th yr resident, in awe over him. LOL

I kinda wish I rewatched the first season beforehand, just to refresh my memory a little.

Just finish ep 1 and the only thing I am sorta indifferent to is the main romance, which I hope they'll keep it to the minimal.

Some old faces I am super glad to see. Kim Sabu, Head Nurse and Nurse Park! Add to it Shin Dong Wook and Fourth Year and I am sold.

Looking forward to episode 2!

I'm happy that most of the cast & writer director are back, but I really hate the FL, (she was meh in WFKBJ & downright atrocious in About Time) & Abyss showed us Ahn Hyo Seop wasn't ready for a lead role yet. It's a good thing that Kim Sabu can do the heavy lifting, but S2 Mcs are nowhere near capable enough like S1 Yoo Yeon Seok & Seo Hyun Jin are.

I desperately hope Kim Sabu & supporting cast can pull off a miracle & make these bleak mcs work.

S1 is one of my favourite kdramas, if S2 can be even half as good I'll be happy.

Ohkay @msrabbit that sounds about the same as what I heard from other people ๐Ÿค”
Maybe I should stop procrastinating & start watching instead?

Hehe... you can decide. FL is still the same, imho. I actually like her performance in WFKBJ. Didn't watch About Time. Ahn Hyo Seop's character is much better here than in Abyss. I think as long as they leave the heavylifting to Kim Sabu and the rest of Doldam crew, we're fine.

I would start and just drop if when it gets unbearable. (ps: I find it easier to drop shows and have dropped a lot of shows after 4+ episodes these days. :P).

Thanks for your premiere watch for RTDK2, @stroopwafel. I just finished watching ep. 2 raw, and am enjoying it very much. I live-watched season 1 and loved it to bits. The look and feel, aided by outro theme "The Stranger" by Billy Joel and the original instrumental music, carry over and seamlessly segue into the new season. Kim Sabu's impeccable taste in vintage rock continues apace.

Most of the supporting cast are back -- tho' so far I don't see orderly Mr. Goo, who busted up many a fistfight between doctors Kang and Do. Of the three younger docs who have moved on, Do In-bum is the one most likely to be able to drop in from the main Geodae campus in Seoul. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Yang Se-jong will grace Doldam with a cameo. Owing to her 2-year overseas fellowship, I'm not expecting Crazy Whale to drop by -- unless there's a significant time jump -- and Seo Hyun-jin has learned how to bilocate from the set of BLACK DOG. Dr. Kang is out in the boonies on an island doing his service -- which seems to be a tip of the hat to Shin Dong-wook's character in CLOUD STAIRCASE. Har! Dr. D'oh has lost his medical license, but that's not stopping him from being a thorn in Kim Sabu's side. The Energizer Bunny of Evil is baaaack.

I like what I've seen of Ahn Hyo-seop's straight-shooting surgeon Seo Woo-jin. Lee Sung-kyung's Cha Eun-jae already irritates me -- but then so did Crazy Whale in the beginning. I'm more a fan of earnest and down-to-earth 4th-year resident Yoon A-reum (So Ju-yeon). Shin Dong-wook's orthopedic surgeon Bae Moon-jung is shaping up to be a charmer, while Kim Joo-hun as Park Min-kook is one of Dr. D'oh's minions. Eek!

Maybe Cha Dal Geon is going to be wheeled in to Doldam because one of the bullets finally went rogue and actually hit him.

@msrabbit,
Sorry about that, chief. Not trying to play with your emotions. Just reporting my latest discoveries. ;-)

LOL at bullets going rogue and actually hitting their target.

Hey, if Yang Se-jong shows up in a cameo as Dr. Do In-bum, maybe he can bring Woo Do-hwan to the Doldam ER after a swordfighting accident at a Society for Creative Anachronism event. ;-)

@pakalanapikake
If Do In Bum does show up with his friend Woo Do Hwan in tow, I hope it's more to perform surgery together and not because they got stabbed (yet again!).

Yes..cameo of our Stabby OTP doing some suturing instead of stabbing... Doc MunBok would be proud!

@msrabbit, @mei123db MeiDramaDreams,

*facepalm*

Duh! What was I thinking?!

Do In-bum and colleagues Kim Min-joon Baksa (MAD DOG) and Mun-bok Baksa arrive at Doldam for a visit, and pitch in in the OR after yet another chain-reaction pileup on the foggy highway. It's a regular sewing circle. ;-)

Before Song Kang-ho there was Han Suk-kyu. He maybe be struggling to resurrect his movie career but I am more than happy to keep him in dramaland.

Can you imagine what the rating would have been like if Kim Hye-soo and Han Suk-kyu's got back together this season?
I've been dying for a veteran romance from that age group.

@kiara,
I'm tickled to bits to see these numbers, and I don't normally give a fig about ratings.

Who knows -- Writer-nim could bring Kim Hye-soo back for an encore. ;-) Or maybe we'll find out that there really has been a discrete romance between nurse Myung-shim and Kim Sabu after all. Remember those intense gazes when the ER was quarantined for MERS? -- I also got the impression that there might be something between her and Dr. Nam, unless maybe his wife decided to un-divorce him after that malpractice mess. (No two-timing implied!) -- I agree that it's high time to have more depictions of healthy, mature relationships in Kdramaland. Codgers and codgerettes are people, too. ;-)

Oh, thanks. HYENA 2020 wasn't on my radar. I didn't realize that Ju Ji-hoon will be playing another lawyer. He was great in MAWANG.

Watched 2 episodes and it is good. The tone from season 1 is still there and Han Suk Kyu is obviously the one that's leading the drama. Some casts are still there and how they handle the medical cases are still the same in season 1. Lee Sung Kyung is good in here maybe because she already played a doctor role before. Ratings for episode one is high so I hope it will go up as the episodes air. Romantic dr kim is one of medical dramas that I like some are Sign, Good Doctor and Brain :D

It feels like old home week at Doldam Hospital. I'm thrilled to see so many familiar faces, and to make the acquaintance of new cast members. I have a good feeling about season 2. It's off to an auspicious start.

Choi Jin-ho is bringing his A game, and I expected nothing less. Dr. D'oh is back with a vengeance, and up to his old tricks. He's using the exact same gambit as the last time when he sent an invasion force to Doldam. The Energizer Bunny Of Evil is in the building, and is already making my blood boil. Here's hoping that the shade of late Chairman Shin returns to haunt the hell out of him. I can't believe that he would not have set something up to ensure Doldam's security against meddling by the board and predation by D'oh in particular.

So what gives with In-bum? He declared his independence from his father, but is back at the mothership. I can't wait to hear the scuttlebutt on what he's up to.

Kim Sabu has already dished out some of his trademark tough love. I'm frankly mystified that a 2nd-year surgical resident could advance that far while being unable to stomach the sight of blood. Her Xanax use is worrisome. When he reamed Cha Eun-jae out, he said exactly what I was thinking. As for Seo Woo-jin's dire straits, I took it as a hopeful sign that Kim Sabu ensured that he received medication and imaging for rib fractures. Sabu-nim seems to have mellowed out a bit. I like it.

Amidst all the upheaval caused by D'oh's machinations in the wake of the emergency surgery on the Minister of Defense, orthopedic surgeon Bae Moon-jung provided a charming moment of comic relief when he returned to his office and addressed the human skeleton as "Elizabeth." ROFLMAO. Shin Dong-wook made my day with that line as it's the middle name of both my Mom and my best friend. Methinks my funny bone will be in good hands for the duration. ;-)

I just finished ep.2 a moment ago, and I am relieved that I'm now having another show to catch up on every week besides Chocolate. Now my Monday - Tuesday slots wouldn't be so free.

I love both eps. I love Kim Sabu and even I'm not in medical field, it worries me to see a CS having anxiety issues in the OR. I don't know what she should do to overcome this, as this situation seems to suggest that she should not be in the OR at all. I feel for her, but let's see how Kim Sabu might handle this.
My little remark here is that I'm still unsure about the performing abilities of FL. I've seen her work in Weightlifting Fairy, but I kind of think that she seems good there because the role is similar to her real self. Here, I don't think she lives up to the par yet, well at least her eyes didn't turn any red after such crying. In Chocolate, everyone cries their tears out and their eyes are so red when doing so. I hope she improves somehow.

As for Dr. Bae something. I agree that he seems like a charming person, so I don't have any problem believing that FL has some kind of a crush on him. However, my nagging feeling is that I'm afraid he might not be as good as he seems. In other words, he seems too good to be true. I'll just wait and see how everything turns out.

@mmmmm,
I saw Lee Sung-kyung in ABOUT TIME, which was a strange show indeed. She played a musical theater actress with a rapidly-approaching expiration date -- literally. In RDTK2, she struck me in the first two eps. as being "bouncy" like her actress character -- which came across as (over)compensation for Dr. Cha's anxiety. She is in denial about her suitability as a surgeon, not to mention her playing with fire by using a highly-addictive tranquilizer to calm her anxiety. Kim Sabu has already fired the opening salvo in his intervention.

I'm keeping an open mind and will see how her character and performance develop. Seo Hyun-jin set the bar very high as Crazy Whale Dr. Yoon in season 1, so whomever was cast as FL was going to have big shoes to fill. Ditto for Yoo Yeon-seok's and Yang Se-jong's replacements. The returning supporting cast is solid and had wonderful chemistry and teamwork, so I expect more of the same. With Han Seok-kyu leading the way, and PD and Writer-nim returning, too, I truly think the new cast members will be in good hands.

As for Dr. Bae, I recall reading somewhere that he's very interested in bones. Perhaps he really wanted to be a paleontologist, but had to settle for orthopedic surgery. He's gotten divorced, so there's something serious going on in his life. Kim Sabu will undoubtedly give him an overhaul, too. It's what he does. ;-)

Have you seen Cheese in the Trap? I thought she played that obnoxious character really well. Though I didnโ€™t get to finish that drama. Her portrayal in About Time was just right for me. I felt she could deliver so much more but I thought it wasnโ€™t her fault that the script failed to develop properly and she and Lee Sang Yoon were simply left hanging with not much substance to their characters. I made it more than halfway but sadly couldnโ€™t bring myself to finish it.

@mei123db MeiDramaDreams,
I have not seen CHEESE IN THE TRAP. But I did watch ABOUT TIME clear to the end, although I cannot for the life of me recall the ending. Did the Men In Black wipe my memory? The premise of the show was promising, but the writing and implementation didn't do it justice.

I agree with you about Lee Sung-kyung's performance in ABOUT TIME. She was convincing as a bubbly musical theater actress when she was on stage, and had a lovely singing voice. She wasn't the only cast member left high and dry by that misbegotten script. I tuned in for Lee Sang-yoon, whom I loved to bits in ANGEL EYES and LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL -- along with his mom from the latter show, the great Kim Hae-sook, who had her own strange relationship with time. On the other hand, Jung Moon-sung gave a touching performance as the male lead's half-brother in yet another horrid chaebol family.

Kim Hae Sook was also part of the reason I plodded on through it halfway.. she was wonderful and portrayed so much warmth to her character who had her own timer countdown... Alas, the promising premise of the story just failed to make sense of it all.

@pakalanapikake @mei123db

I haven't seen her in any other drama, and based on what your comments about Cheese in the Trap and About Time I am happy I didn't even start watching them. And also according to your comments, my guard is lowered down a bit regarding her acting abilities. We'll see to it. I just hope she raises her bar a bit. Perhaps I'm a little biased because ofc Seo Hyun-jin was really good in SS1.

@mmmmm,
I didn't watch CIIT because I recalled all the gnashing of Beanie teeth in Open Thread when it was airing, which was around the time I joined DB.

I've noticed that Kdrama often stumbles when it comes to sci-fi, which is the genre to which I would tend to classify ABOUT TIME. When I first read about it, it reminded me of Robert Heinlein's short story "Life-Line" -- but turned out nothing like that straightforward tale, which is one of my favorites.

I just realized that I have seen Lee Sung-kyung in another drama. I watched IT'S OKAY, IT'S LOVE about 6 months ago. I had forgotten that Lee Sung-kyung played Oh So-nyeo, manipulative female high school sasaeng [stalker fan] of novelist and DJ Jang Jae-yeol. By episode 5 I detested her, according to my log notes -- but I don't remember much about her. Probably because I marathoned the show in 3 days, and was mesmerized by Zo In-sung, Do Kyung-soo -- and Gong Hyo-jin. It is an interesting drama that dealt sympathetically with mental health -- and had great music. Highly recommended.

Aw, shucks. LSK deserves a fair shake in RDTK2. I loved Seo Hyun-jin as Crazy Whale, and hope that LSK's character ends up with an equally cool nickname to go along with a memorable character. ;-)

2

@pakalanapikake

Let's hope that LKS will rock it in RDTK 2 then! Btw, I watched like 7 episodes of It's Okay, That's Love and stopped watching it. Is it that good? I mean I began to know that something was wrong with ML, but I just couldn't warm up to JIS himself or his character and also GHJ so I just dropped it. If it's that good, I might try to rewatch it again. At least many Beanies seem to like it.

1

I have high confidence on the production team behind this drama. Iโ€™m willing to start on a clean slate for her and hopeful she will turn in a much more memorable performance. I agree she has big shoes to fill compared to Seo Hyun Jinโ€™s top caliber acting. As far as characters go though, I feel that Doc Seo Jeong may have more weight and experience with the scalpel and Cha Eun Jaeโ€™s novice character has more room for growth and casting for the younger actors was intentional. Iโ€™m looking forward to the emphasis on the character arc.

@mei123db MeiDramaDreams,
I cannot agree with you more. If season 1 is anything to go by โ€“ and I definitely think it is โ€“ Lee Sung-kyung is in good hands. Writer-nim will give her a satisfying character arc, and PD-nim will ensure that she lives up to her potential. Surrounded by so many excellent veteran actors, it will be a dandy master class for all the younger actors.

I, too, have gotten an inkling that Seo Woo-jin is the more capable surgeon, while Cha Eun-jae is embroiled with inner demons that threaten to sink her medical career before it even begins. I really like what Iโ€™ve seen so far of 4th-year resident Yoon A-reum, and appreciate So Ju-yeonโ€™s earnest vibe. Dr. Dโ€™ohโ€™s toady Park Min-kook (Kim Joo-hun) is about to walk into a buzz saw, and wonโ€™t know what hit him by the time Kim Sabu gets done with him.

Demanding taskmaster Kim Sabu will put his proteges through the Doldam equivalent of boot camp. In the process he will break them down to build them back up into better human beings as well as better physicians. It will be messy, there will be tears, and Kim Sabu and the sunbaes will accompany them every step of the way. They wonโ€™t expect the rookies to do anything that they themselves would not be willing to do. No one is exempt from growing as a human being at Doldam. Kim Sabu holds himself to that same standard. Whenever he loses sight of it, Dr. Nam and Nurse Oh set him straight.

For me, one of the most satisfying aspects of RDTK1 was the sense that I was witnessing a gifted ensemble cast acting together in exactly the same way that the experienced ER staff at Doldam fluidly moved in unison with precision, purpose, and grace every time an ambulance rolled up. It was a joy to see them anticipating each other's actions, particularly in the OR. I'm looking forward to more of that โ€“ and the warmth and heart that made RDTK1 such an engaging and uplifting drama.

Iโ€™m so excited as well for the potential that Season 2 has to offer. The ensemble cast is just too wonderful and gives that extra flair to the flurry of action sequence at Doldam Hospital. They are so in tune to each other that each scene at the operating room feels almost like a musical or ballet performance. I think the rookie characters have just the right amount of angst for Kim Sabu and his team to weave their magic.

I feel a bit underwhelmed with the second season premier. The set up seems too similar to the first season. A young outcast male doctor, capable but with personality issue. A young female doctor that cant perform surgery due to mental issue (a 2nd year surgery resident that cant handle operating room? How is that even possible?) VIP client with two competing teams. Same villain. I wish the writer can be more creative in generating new conflict.

I do love Dr Kim and happy to see many of his lovable team are back. I'm still going to give this a go, because I do love the human stories in the fast pace ER and surgery room. I hope there won't be much hospital politic that plague the later half of the first season. Finger cross this season will grow stronger than the premier.

Just watched the episode 1. I think the screenplay and editing of the drama is best as the previous season. Story is usual medical drama with some personal stories and sentiments mixed with some interesting medical cases but what makes Romantic Dr Kim different is treatments, It is much tighter screenplay compared to any other.
It's difficult to digest Lee Sung-kyung as a surgeon but she plays her flawed character well actually. The very sulking Ahn Hyo-seop looks very handsome and great as a general surgeon. Han Seok-kyu is able to portray his character as usual very arrogant extremely great surgeon. Supporting cast who as usual provide some comedic relief in serious drama. I think it is a good mixture of drama, romance and comedy with medical situations. Keeps one entertained thoroughly !!
I think I will watch this drama completely. :) :D With Psychopath Diary ending, this is good drama to replace it. [ well maybe not on TV but online on Viki ]
