K-ent is calling it the battle of the doctors for Mon-Tues night ratings supremacy but the substance and tone are so different I can’t see it appealing to the same group of viewers. SBS premieres Doctors on June 20th after Daebak (Jackpot) while on the same day KBS brings out Beautiful Mind to take over for Neighborhood Hero Jo Deul Ho. I’m for sure watching Doctors but also intend to check out Beautiful Mind – it’s got Jang Hyuk putting on his scrubs again nearly ten years after Thank You, adorable Park So Dam as his leading lady, and a fantastic supporting cast including Park Se Young, Yoon Hyun Min, Oh Jung Se, and Heo Joon Ho. BM is the story of Jang Hyuk as a brilliant neurosurgeon who lacks empathy as a clinical condition, but once he gets embroiled in mysterious patient deaths at the hospital he crosses paths with Park So Dam’s lady cop and their collaboration to solve the crime also starts to heal Jang Hyuk’s zero emotion problem. Sounds interesting enough to me!
