Finding romance and healing in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim

Well, it was missing its leading lady, but the script read proceeded (otherwise) as normal for SBS’s upcoming drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, with the other two leads, Han Seok-kyu (Secret Door) and Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) in attendance.

It’s too bad Seo Hyun-jin (Oh Hae-young Again) wasn’t able to make it — she was hit with a sudden bout of stomach pains — because while I quite enjoy the actors solo, it’s really the triple-whammy of leads that gets me excited about this show. The story is fairly familiar stuff, centered around a genius doctor with an accomplished career who somehow ends up leaving it all behind to be a neighborhood doc. And while the title of this drama makes me think first of Doctors, the description seems more akin to Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho, with a main character falling from grace and building himself back from nothing.

Teacher Kim (played by Han Seok-kyu) then becomes a mentor figure to two younger doctors, played by Yoo Yeon-seok and Seo Hyun-jin. At the outset, Yoo is a man who became a doctor to win out over someone, while Seo pursued the career in order to gain recognition from someone, and as they learn from Teacher Kim, they realize the value of life and grow into true doctors. The drama is set in a dinky, unglamorous provincial hospital, which they build into a solid, state-of-the-art hospital that won’t be swayed by people’s money or power. So basically, the ultimate underdog triumph story, driven by a mentor-mentee relationship and a solid cast. So far, so good.

The drama is directed by PD Yoo In-shik (You’re All Surrounded, Incarnation of Money) and written by Kang Eun-kyung (Baker King Kim Tak-gu, Gu Family Book). At the script reading, PD Yoo greeted the cast by explaining that heading into production on a drama leads to pressure and stress, and stated that on set, his answer to that issue would be communication. He also explained the “romantic” part of the title to mean more of a sense of romanticism of life (as opposed to a love relationship), and that it is a kind of romance to be absorbed by and appreciate one’s work.

The (extensive) supporting cast includes Im Won-hee (You’re All Surrounded), Jin Kyung (Uncontrollably Fond), Kim Hong-pa (Police Unit 38), Kim Min-jae (My Little Baby), Kim Jung-young (Heard It Through the Grapevine), Choi Jin-ho (Oh My Venus), and Tae In-ho (Descended From the Sun). Not a shabby lineup.

Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim will be the Monday-Tuesday drama that follows Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, and premieres on November 7.

I completely forgot he was supposed to be in this!
With SHJ in the mix there are high chances we can finally enjoy YYS in a decent main role and put Warm&Cozy far, far behind us.

At least we can trust the PD to make the most of the cast. He did Giant, after all. The writer...we might be in for some very mixed results :/

I'm very excited to see Han Seok-kyu and Seo Hyun-jin together in a drama. It's been a long time since I've seen her work with someone on her level.

Agreed, seo hyun jin is just awsome. But the writers is just, ugh. This amazing cast might be put a good performance no matter how bad the script is as long as there is something meaty to work with?

If it wasn't for Seo Hyun-jin I'd say they don't need a leading lady. Get better soon!

I knew people are tired with medical/doctor drama but I realised that I always turn in a lot of Jdrama medical theme because it usually different. So I hope this drama executed well cause a good drama will always be appreciated and it's nice to see YYS back in drama land.

I just hope this drama doesn't fall to the usual kdrama style that always make the love line as the utimate goal.
A good romance is preferable but I hope this will more of a touching story of everyday life in the view of different doctor.

I'm rewatching Dream High atm and forgot how much I love a good underdog story and the premise for this one doesn't sound too bad now.
Never seen HSK in anything before - really need to find the time to watch TWDR - but YYS and SHJ are just ❤️ so I'm definitely in. (Ok who am I kidding, I've already confessed in an OT that I'd marry YYS if I can lol so of course I'm going to watch this no matter how. And luckily I skipped the drama he never made last year, so no bad memories here. ?)

I forgot about this drama and I nearly cried when I read "missing it's leading lady" and Yoo YeonSeok in the same sentence.

I thought they didn't even cast one or they had scheduling problems again! After Bitterly Cold and Prickly, I just cannot if Yoo YeonSeok were to come back in a real-life-drama-filled-tv-drama.

But turns out the leading lady is Seo HyunJin and she didn't attend because of stomach pains? I'm sorry to Seo HyunJin but, THANK YOU. And I really wish my fave-up-and-comer is fine and gets well soon. Hope it's nothing more than minor food poisoning.

Han SeokKyu, Yoo YeonSeok, Seo HyunJin - the director and writer better deliver. Also, romance = romanticism of life? I'm intruiged.

I hope its better than Doctors...I like KRW but duhhh....his character in Doctors suddenly like 17th teenage struck by lighting called love.
I hope YYS character is showing much better than Warm and Cozy. and though i hope that the female lead can be Kang Sora (to overcome that horrible warm and Cozy) i love SHJ too...so it's win win for me.
cant wait.
