Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim Ends With 27.6% Ratings for the Final Episode

Combining together three veterans may have played a big role in creating the winning formula for the recently finished SBS Mon-Tues drama Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim. Veteran Han Seok Kyu played the titular Romantic Doctor and got awarded with the network’s drama Daesang last month as well as anchoring a drama that crossed 20% in ratings by episode 10 and stayed up there the rest of the time. The final episode 20 which aired on Monday brought in a series high of 27.6% AGB ratings nationwide.

The PD is an SBS veteran who directed You’re All Surrounded, Mrs. Cop, Giant, Incarnation of Money, and History of the Salaryman, and I definitely saw his flourishes in the more dramatic visuals in Romantic Doctor. The screenwriter Kang Eun Kyung has many hit dramas under her belt with What’s With This Family, Baker King Kim Tak Goo, Man of Honor, and Gu Family Book so she can now add this to her success list.
