Beanie level: Jang Geu-rae

remember back in 2014 when we heard good doctor was going to get an american remake but then it was kind of never spoken of again? WELL I CAME ACROSS SOMETHING INTERESTING TODAY.

    I haven’t seen good doctor but based on stills and few scenes I could believe Joo Won had autism.
    But here, it doesn’t feel so?

      I kind of felt that way, too, actually. I only watched like 2 episodes of Good Doctor before remembering that I’m not big on medical dramas, but Joo-won was so believable in that role! He just had a lot of, idk, small movements and affectations that reminded me of the autistic children I’ve worked with. I think in my head I’m comparing Freddie Highmore’s acting to Joo-won’s, which I know isn’t fair because they’re so different.. but I can’t help but feel like if the trailer wasn’t intercut with the other doctors reminding us every ten seconds that the character is autistic, I might not notice that he was supposed to be autistic.

    Oh wow! Definitely interesting. Freddie Highmore actually looks like he’s aged! I don’t really like the idea of American remakes of (my ~precious~) Korean dramas, so I’m not jumping at this, but it is very interesting and cool that K-dramas have garnered so much attention, interest and popularity enough for this to happen in the first place.

    I definitely recognize similarities between this trailer and the K-drama version. I thought Freddie Highmore was still pretty weak as an actor when I saw the majority of Bates Motel S1, so that’s also another reason why I’m not jumping at this. That, and I rarely check out new American TV shows nowadays.

    Thanks for sharing, okitokki!

      I’m with you, lol; I don’t get too excited about American remakes of anything (America should really just not remake anything. It pretty much never turns out well!) but I thought it was kind of cool that one of the dramas that was up for a US remake actually made it this far into the process of becoming a show 🙂

        Yep, gotta admit, the fact that there’s a finishing product, is pretty darn cool. 👍🏼

      I read an article about it on Variety &it doesn’t seem like this is a full series yet—ABC has ordered for a pilot to be made but I don’t think a full season has been greenlit yet. It’s still pretty cool, though 🙂
