The impending conclusion of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo means SBS can return to the winning formula on Mon-Tues with the medical themed drama Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim. Its title is basically the underpinnings of the last SBS medical drama Doctors, what with Kim Rae Won‘s character being all three – romantic, teacher, and doctor – to Park Shin Hye‘s female lead.
In the upcoming medical drama, the titular Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim is played by veteran Han Seok Kyu, and the drama with the veteran paired with younger doctor leads in Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo Yeon Seok reminds me a lot of one of my favorite medical K-dramas New Heart with Jo Jae Hyun, Ji Sung, and Kim Min Jung. I enjoy the mentoring veteran professional drama with the youngsters growing in skill and love alongside. The drama stills and teasers are standard medical drama stuff but the glimpse of a love line with Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo Yeon Seok satisfies the romantic needs of the typical K-drama viewers.
