I see major flashbacks to Park Shin Hye‘s last drama Pinocchio, and it’s not something I sensed in early previews for Doctors but I totally sense it now with the official drama posters. It’s not a bad sort of flashback since I loved Pinocchio and also loved the posters, it just feels lazy that same network SBS resorted to such similar styling, posing, and vibe. The couples poster shows leads Kim Rae Won and Park Shin Hye laying facing each other in a comfortable home setting, while the main cast posters has the second leads Yoon Kyun Sang and Lee Sung Kyung joining the leads arrayed in their best doctor pose.
There’s also a third and latest teaser preview to go along with the drama posters, this one showing rebel high school gangster Hye Jung’s conflict with high school medical advisor Hong Ji Hong, clearly playing the early days connection between the two that will grow into romance after their reunite as adults working in the same hospital. At least I hope the romance waits until then, I know how it’ll ick people out for the teacher-student crush angle so let’s hope it’s all mentorship until Hye Jung comes of age.
