Doctor Stranger: Episode 1
by | May 6, 2014 | 215 Comments
There’s a new doctor in the house with Doctor Stranger, whose solid and compelling premiere still makes my heart race. And no, I’m not just talking about Lee Jong-seok’s abs, which I admit is a pretty big draw. I’m speaking to the great visuals, a gripping story, and characters who tug your emotions from the...

Okay, so there are probably other things going on in the posters and stills for Doctor Stranger, like hey — their faces make a Korean peninsula! — but can I help it if my main takeaway from the stills is that Lee Jong-seok got a perm? I can’t imagine how they’re going to motivate it... More »

Doctor Stranger is the upcoming SBS miniseries about a North Korean refugee who defects to South Korea and becomes a (geeeenius) doctor (really).
