Medical Korean Dramas

My Top 7 Medical Korean Dramas. Are you a big fan of medical Korean Dramas? If you’re like me and are not familiar with medical jargons but are so drawn in by the extra-ordinary life and death stories that come with each character, then this is may just be for you!

Medical Korean dramas are not only entertaining but educational, since they explain medical terms in a way that the viewers can easily understand. Don’t you agree?

Here is a list just for you!

 

Emergency Couple

This was the Korean drama that made me fall in love with medical dramas. Not only was it entertaining with the constant bickering of the leads but I truly enjoyed the medical aspect and how both characters grew to become fantastic doctors. 

Plot:

While in their early twenties, a medical school student, Oh Chang-min, and a dietitian, Oh Jin-hee, falls in love and marries despite his family’s strong opposition.

Chang-min comes from a family of wealthy, successful doctors who believe Jin-hee isn’t good enough for him, which thus prompts them to cut him off financially after he marries her. In order to earn money right away, Chang-min gives up his dream of becoming a doctor, and instead becomes a pharmaceutical salesman.

He is miserable at his job, while Jin-hee’s inferiority complex deepens as her husband’s family continues to look down on her. They begin to fight constantly and eventually get a divorce.

Six years later, Chang-min has gone back to med school to pursue his dream, while Jin-hee has also put herself through med school. They end up as interns at the same hospital, where they’ll have to work in the emergency room together for three months.

Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim (Part 1 & 2)

 

Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim

The series was a commercial hit and recorded over 20% in ratings. It received positive reviews for its plot and Han Suk-kyu’s performance.

Plot: Part 1 tells the story of  Boo Yong-joo (Han Suk-kyu), a genius and triple-board certified surgeon, who was once at the top of his field and used to work at Seoul’s top hospital, Geosan University. After a traumatic incident, he disappears and changes his name to Kim Sa-bu (Master Kim). He begins working at a small hospital named Doldam. He guides Kang Dong-joo (Yoo Yeon-seok) and Yoon Seo-jeong (Seo Hyun-jin) to become great doctors by teaching them to fight against power and money for the sake of patients

Three years following the events of Part 1, Master Kim (Han Suk-kyu) comes to Geodae Hospital to recruit a general surgeon. He finds Seo Woo-jin (Ahn Hyo-seop), a doctor with a troubled past who is ostracized by his fellow doctors, and offers him the job. In the meantime, Cha Eun-jae (Lee Sung-kyung) is suspended after making another mistake in the operation room and has no other choice but to follow the two doctors to Doldam Hospital.

 

Doctors

The drama was a hit and averaged 18.40% in audience ratings. In particular, Park’s character as a troubled teenager turned charismatic doctor was very popular among the audiences for her action scenes and straightforward lines.

Plot:

Yoo Hye-jung (Park Shin-hye) was a headstrong girl in high school with a prickly, gangster personality. Due to her many childhood scars, Hye-jung keeps her heart closed towards other people. However, she changes after meeting her mentor Hong Ji-hong (Kim Rae-won), who plays a key role in transforming her life from a “hopeless” delinquent to a compassionate doctor. They part ways subsequently but meet again after 13 years, when Yoo Hye-jung becomes a doctor

 

Good Doctor

Good Doctor medical korean drama

Plot: A man named Park Shi On is a doctor with autistic savant disorder who has the mentality of a 10-year-old. He overcomes bias and discrimination by society and workmates and becomes a pediatrician by utilizing his exceptional abilities that the illness brings.

This drama brought a source of happiness, though it was sad most of the time. The male lead is a tremendous actor as he was able to perfectly capture the behaviors of an autistic person. 

Descendants of the Sun

This drama tells of the love story that develops between a surgeon and a special forces officer.

It was a major hit in South Korea where it drew a peak audience share of 38.8%. It received several awards, such as winning the Grand Prize in television at the 52nd Baeksang Arts Awards; and was named the Most Popular Show of the year by Korea Broadcasting Advertising Corporation.

 

Doctor Stranger

As a child, Park Hoon and his father were kidnapped by North Korea. In North Korea, Park Hoon was trained to become a doctor by his father who was already a doctor. Park Hoon became a genius like chest surgeon. He then flees to South Korea. He then begins to work as a doctor in South Korea’s top hospital Myeongwoo University Hospital, but he feels like a complete outsider.

This fusion political/medical drama is a wild ride through the world of medicine, surgery, and the murky socio-politics that defines North-South relations. 

Kill Me Heal Me

 

The series incorporates dissociative identity disorder and child abuse elements as pivotal topics.[12] It reunited Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum, who previously starred together in Secret Love.

Plot:

After a traumatic experience in his childhood, Cha Do Hyeon, a third-generation billionaire, suffers memory lapses and his personality then scattered into seven different identities. Wanting to regain control over his life he asks Oh Ri Jin, a first-year psychiatric resident, to try to help him secretly, but she eventually falls in love with one of his personalities. Meanwhile, Ri Jin’s twin brother, Oh Ri On, is a famous mystery novelist who investigates Do Hyeon and his family.
