For these past six months I am kind of bored of romantic K-dramas. You know, the excessive love scenes from the start until the end, the predictable plot of a rich man with a poor woman, and soon make me sick. So here I am, watching “Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim” which was released on November 7,2016.

The first episode introduced the background of the three main characters; Doctor Kim, Kang Dong Jo, and Yoon Seo Jung. Actually, I was hoping that the first episode will explain more about Doctor Kim – why he called himself as “romantic doctor” or about the reason of his secluded life.But it tells about Kang Dong Jo and Yoon Seo Jung private lives more. Well, maybe the writer wants to save the best for the last and reveals Doctor Kim’s secret as the story reaches its peak.

Although I was a bit disappointed by unnecessarily romantic scenes in the first episode, I like how the drama shows the every day life of doctors in ER – how they deal with life and death problems, seniority, and troublesome patients. I was like I was watching Code Blue. However, I am not comparing these two right now.

At the end of this episode it was told that Yoon Seo Jung got a car accident with Doctor Moon, her boyfriend. She broke her arm. Her boyfriend died. Seo Jung was so upset. She then went hiking but tripped on the way. A stranger then passed by and helped her. She was brought to some strange place.

Seo Jung didn’t appear so much. Kang Dong Jo has more appearance in this episode. It had been 5 years since Seo Jung disapperance and Dong Jo already became a surgeon. However, he made a mistake when did a surgery on a VIP person. He then was sent to a small hospital in a remote area.

This episode onward will be interesting.  Not only met the peculiar Doctor Kim, Kang Dong Jo also met Yoon Seo Jung in that hospital. Things got complicated then. He had to deal with patients with little staff.

Currently Watching: Ex-Girlfriend Club


Romantic-comedy series Ex-Girlfriend Club just wrapped two weeks ago on tvN. And Song Ji Hyo’s appearance will always steal my heart.

I’d like to admit that: Yes, I watch this series because of Song Ji Hyo. She has stolen my heart since Emergency Couple. Unlike other female actresses, she doesn’t bother on how she will look like on screen—I mean how she dressed. She’s really into her character. Her messed up style really catches my attention. And I like that.

First two episodes tell the story of Kim Soo Jin (Song Ji Hyo), who is a film producer that works in an almost bankrupt company. She’s prepared to do whatever it takes to save the company. Therefore, she accepts the assignment to produce a webtoon adaptation. But to her horror, Soo Jin belatedly finds out that the webtoon artist is her ex-boyfriend, Myeong Soo (Byun Yo Han).

Not only reluctantly working with her ex, Soo Jin also has to face that the company she works in has a lot of debt to pay. And as the movie starts shooting, the project also brings Myeong Soo’s other ex-girlfriends back into his life all at the same time. With unique personalities, these Myeong Soo’s ex-girlfriends—which includes an older wealthy divorcee (Jang Ji Eun), a chic and successful woman who works at an investment firm (Lee Yoon Ji), and a third-rate airhead actress (Hwa Young)—bring another problems and delays the movie’s production.

Although I just watched the first two episodes, I kinda know how the drama will end. Like other K-Dramas, this one may end with the main female and male leads fall in love. However, what I like about this drama is that the drama isn’t a drama where big things happened, like other typical K-Dramas. This is a rom-com drama which focuses more on everyday interactions and relationships, peppered with some seriously gut-busting comedy. It’s light and the plot flows smoothly. Afterall, it is worth to follow the series until episode finale.
