Apple+ Enters K-dramas with Medical Thriller Mr. Robin with Top Notch Casting of Lee Seon Kyun, Lee Yoo Young, Yoo Yeo, and Seo Ji Hye

With streaming giant Netflix reaping wild rewards with its financed and licensed K-dramas, another big name platform is joining the fun with Apple+ producing its first K-drama titled Mr. Robin. It’s based on the webtoon Dr. Brain and is about a genius doctor solving crime through the brains of the deceased and is scheduled to be a 6-episode drama. Headlining the cast is Lee Seon Kyun along with Lee Yoo Young, Yoo Teo, and Seo Ji Hye, and I’m screaming why this cast can’t also do a full length K-drama because it’s just an incredibly awesome four-some. Directing is award winning movie director Kim Jee Woon who directed A Tale of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, The Good, The Bad, The Weird, I Saw the Devil, and Age of Shadows. Woweee, so much talented working together.

    • I’m not a fan of medical dramas either. But the short 6 episode length along with a solid cast is enticing enough for me to give it a try.

  1. Just had THE conversation last night with the hubby about how many streaming services we really need. As much as I love Lee Sun Kyun, I draw the line at Apple TV. I hope Kdramas on Apple TV don’t become too big a thing.😫

  3. Wow! What a cast we got here!
    All great actors both male and female.
    Pity its too short, only 6 episodes.
    Wish korean production houses can come out with such good castings for their dramas.

  4. This is great, looking forward to this! Apple TV has some quality shows so far and produced my favorite show of 2020, Ted Lasso.

    Also, 6 episodes hopefully means the cast had access to the entire script and were impressed by the quality. I also think they might have been attracted to the platform it will be on. Personally don’t care about the length as long as it’s good, I’m used to watching mini-series anyway.
