The future seems brighter for ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ as the air ambulance / helicopter transfer, where Yoo Yeon Seok and Han Suk Kyu send patient to be operated by orthopaedic surgeon, recorded the best rating peak at 23.11 percent.
The drama also has been receiving praise for its attention to medical detail. The romance is equally alluring. Just look at the way Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yeon Seok) playfully yet intentionally asks his crush Yoon Seo-Jung (Seo Hyun Jin) to play melodrama between them. Are you ask her out, Dong Joo ya? Seo-Jung might not budge down with his request but for us… swooooonnnn. Stop giving her that ‘chilbongie’ look, Yoo Yeon Seok!
And that subtle smile and look as he holds her hand when she sleeps… #heartbreak
