Emotions run high in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’s new teaser

Pretty cool how solid actors can elevate a genre as exhausted as the medical drama without the need to go to absurd lengths. It just goes to show that great performances really do deliver in more ways than one.

We’ve got some more stills along with a second teaser for the upcoming SBS drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, and while nothing you see is novel by any means, there is something quite electrifying about our main couple, Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Seo Hyun-jin (Oh Hae-young Again), and for the titular Dr. Kim played by veteran actor Han Seok-kyu (Secret Door), an air of mystery and intrigue can be tangibly felt. I mean, we don’t even get to see Dr. Kim’s face in the teaser because he’s backlit and literally shrouded in shadows.

Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is the story of a genius, triple-board certified surgeon (Han Seok-kyu) who was once at the top of his field, working at Seoul’s top hospital, until a traumatic incident prompts him to switch gears and lend his expertise at a small, no-name provincial clinic. There, he’ll serve as a mentor to an irritable albeit brilliant “dirt spoon” (e.g., poor background) surgeon (Yoo Yeon-seok) as well as a fervently persevering surgeon who pours all her strength and effort into saving lives (Seo Hyun-jin). The two will grow as doctors and human beings and realize the true value of their jobs.

The teaser opens with a charged sound bite from Seo Hyun-jin as she works frantically on a patient: “If you’re lying there, and all your doctor says is that there’s nothing that can be done, how would you feel?” Meanwhile, a fuming Yoo Yeon-seok throws his white coat against the floor, his sound bite defensive: “A guy like me who comes from nothing needs to jump in and do something—either line up behind a person of power, or save a VIP patient in order to become the best!” Seo Hyun-jin wonders, “What happened to you in the last five years?”

Then there are quick cuts of high-pressure emergency room situations and the silhouetted profiles of our main couple as they kiss. At the end, Han Seok-kyu arrives, looking dark and shadowy, and says, “If you want true vengeance, don’t exact it with wrath, but with skill.”

The use of shadows and lights, both warm and stark, imbued the teaser with a palpable sense of heat, and our main couple’s crackling chemistry and passionate convictions certainly contributed to it. Will this medical drama be one that gets it right?

Monday-Tuesday drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim will air on November 7 after Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo ends.

Good luck Seo Hyun Jin Eonnie :)

It's pretty much universal for TV shows to depict hospitals in this more appealing and dramatic manner. Starting from the very simple rule of keeping the coat buttoned at all times, that simply can't work in a series.
Personally love a good medical show. I look for tight story telling and good acting just like in any other drama.

I'm not expecting another Golden Time, let alone another White Tower lol, but if this could be another Surgeon Bong Dal-hee (maybe even a bit better? Please?) I could accept that. A lot of decent shows have made it on getting 2/3 right in terms of writing, acting, and directing, so fingers crossed here. Probably watching no matter what because of HSK though <3

Ah. Another medical drama. I adore Seo Hyunjin, and I do lile medical dramas in general, especially those with surgeries shown without censors and whatnot. I hope this one does not bore because news of SHJ being a surgeon got me enthusiastic for it. I hope it goes better than - and holds me curiosity and interest until the end - unlike all (and I do mean all, tried them but left them) the other medical dramas of 2016. :/

It feels so wierd to see Seo HyunJin kissing someone so passionately that's not Eric. I feel like a kid that caught their parent cheating :'( lol

I obviously have to get over all my Oh Hae Young feels before I can even consider checking this out.
