Nothing seems to stop ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ from hitting another rating record this week. Episode 17 brought in 25.1% viewership rating, a solid 3 percent increase from the January 2 episode. With this new record,  the juggernaut drama beats its personal best of 23.8% that came with episode 12.

The drama is so successful that the cast and crew will be flown to Cebu on 20 January for a prize vacation. Congratulations!!

Kim Sabu and President Do are always in constant confrontation in both episode 16 and 17. However, their fierce verbal argument at the pivotal moment of episode 17 grabbed got the most attention as the rating peaked at 29.7%.

We also got some intense medical scenes in both episodes with Chairman Shin’s operation and an emergency operation performed by new bromance in town, Dong Joo and In Beom.

Conflict and blood aside, the best thing about episode 16 and 17 are the heart thumping scenes of our Dong Joo and Seo Jung. The two lovebirds still tried to hide their blooming romance but heck, who are they going to fool? We are talking about peculiar people in Doldam hospital where everyone has the ability to see right through some facades.

Good news is, love wins over pizza and we got to see our couple acts like they’re in a relationship. So, all we can ask is, “Sunbae, how does resting your head on Dong Joo’s pacific ocean wide shoulder feel?”

[20161231] Yoo Yeon Seok Brought Home Prizes from SBS Drama Awards

Dreams do come true, that’s what we believe here in YeoNiverse.

For the past few months, our collective dream of seeing Yoo Yeon Seok in a hit drama has finally came true. His drama, Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, is undisputedly one of the biggest hits in 2016. His acting is also receiving recognition as he received the Excellence Award for Genre Drama Category at 2016 SBS Drama Awards. Congratulations, Dr. Kang, eh Yoo Yeon Seok!!

He later went to Instagram to express his happiness from receiving the award, his gratitude toward fans, and new year wishes.

English translation:

“I receive a very big award thanks to the fans who always love and cheered me on. Thank you and I love you. I’m starting 2017 feeling so happy. Everybody be well and Happy New Year.”

For Yoo Yeon Seok and his co-star Seo Hyun Jin, 2016 SBS Drama Awards gave them two more awards. The first one is ‘Best Couple Award’ that they received alongside Lee Jun Ki and IU (Moon Lovers) as well as Lee Minho and Jeon Ji Hyun (Legends of the Blue Sea).

When Yoo Yeon Seok was asked how he felt about receiving the award, it’s almost unbelievable yet amazing how he could give off a cheesiest possible response. He said (as quoted from ‘unstoppable sun‘) :

Ours is a medical drama so we really weren’t expecting anything. Having received this…we’re always at the hospital in gowns filming, but seeing Hyunjin-sshi in a dress, it feels like I’ll go into arrest. Sunbae, I think I need CPR!

His comment is sooooo cheesy, everyone burst out laughing and poor Seo Hyun Jin had to show her curled fingers to the audience. Seo Hyun Jin literally gave the same response to Yoo Yeon Seok’s cheesy lines, both in the drama and real life. Meanwhile, we had a collective meltdown in embarrassment here in YeoNiverse and immediately wished that he just go home. kekekeke..

As if Yoo Yeon Seok’s remark is not embarassing enough,  SBS tried to up the cheesiness level with their Best Kiss Award that is based on votes casted by 100 idols. The winner is none other than our beloved romantic doctors who set fires on our scenes with their sizzling chemistry and kiss scenes.

With this award, are the idols giving a cue to ‘more steamy kisses in the future’? muahahahahaha…

It seems that their kiss scenes are so electric that the two were even asked on the same thing during on red carpet. Got to love Seo Hyun Jin’s response as she admitted to enjoying it. Meanwhile, Yoo Yeon Seok said he was actually nervous about kissing in doctor white gown. Well, at least he later told the world that it is not illegal to kiss in the white gown.ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

All in all, Yoo Yeon Seok in ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ is the best 2016 could bring us. Dream do come true and here’s to more success for Yoo Yeon Seok and all YeoNizens in 2017.

Happy New Year!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!!

[Eng] ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ Synopsis


Source : SBS Mediacreate Monthly Magazine (Sept ’16)

(Monday – Tuesday Drama)
‘Romantic Teacher Teacher Kim’ (Tentative title) 
20 episodes
First episode to air on November 7, 2016 at 10pm

The age of injustice, is called as the age of inequality and distrust. Since we’re living in a full of desire society where not only politics but also medical communities follow the tracks of money, I can’t help but to worry what if my family is ill. At times like this, a wish ‘I wish people like them to be around’, came for such kind of doctors.

‘Romantic’ nonsense. Teacher Kim is an eccentric swashbuckling doctor who is practical and cool-headed. He was once famous with the nickname of ‘Hand of God’, but now he saves many people lives with his incredible medical technique in *’Doldam Hospital’ (*literal : “Stone wall Hospital”), a small general hospital in a small city, in general surgery, cardiothoracic surgery and emergency department.

Looking like a trivial suburb hospital, but every staff including nurse moves silently and swiftly like masters in the forest do. One day, two young doctors came to the peaceful “Doldam Hospital”…

The first doctor was a young female patient who was rescued by Teacher Kim in a mountain. She was an emergency department resident, who once shouted “If you do not know love you’re not qualified to wear a doctor’s gown”, she shouted loudly in order to save one’s life in the emergency room. Written as seemingly passionate and hot-tempered but has something hidden inside, the casting of the mainstream actress Seo Hyun Jin for the role of ‘Yoon Seo Jeong’ is raising expectation.

The second doctor is kicked out from a large hospital in Seoul, a talented man but terribly rude and doesn’t have even an ounce of manners. It is said that once he was the best surgeon who did surgery easily. Being cast for the role of ‘Kang Dong Joo’, a man gifted with a talent but is wandering, Yoo Yeon Seok, the guy who shoots at the women’s heart will show a new transformation.

In addition to the fantastic combination of Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo Yeon Seok, for the drama’s key role ‘Teacher Kim’, actor Han Suk Kyu who can express ‘eccentric charisma’ well has been determined to star in the drama and is raising expectations.

[Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim] is a medical drama and a drama that shows the growth of a man and a woman who had chosen to become doctors for ‘success’ and ‘acknowledgement’ who later meets Teacher Kim and overcome their internal trauma and becoming real doctors.

Teacher Kim’s almost beyond human power medical technique in saving lives that are fading away would give an exhilarating thrill and there will be a melo/romance that will make the heart pounding faster than the urgency in the medical field.

Also, the main characters’ struggling growing phase in seeking for “real doctors” and “real life” after meeting with a genuine teacher will give us warmth during this winter to reflect on the value of ‘humanity’ that we all faintly missed.

Yoo Yeon Seok Offered Leading Role in SBS Revenge Melodrama ‘Deal’

Yoo Yeon Seok is in talk to be the male lead in an upcoming SBS revenge melodrama titled ‘Deal’. A possible comeback to dramaland for Yoo Yeon Seok?

 photo kke3.jpg

KingKong Entertainment, Yoo Yeon Seok’s agency, confirms that the actor has only received the casting offer and is currently reviewing the  script. KKE added that nothing has been decided, refuting various news that claim Yoo Yeon Seok already sealed the deal to play in ‘Deal’ and was preparing for filming. If Yoo Yeon Seok signs on, it will be his drama comeback after a year of absence from small-screen. His last drama “Warm and Cozy” aired in May-July last year.

‘Deal’ will be penned by writer Choi Ho Chul who also wrote KBS’s ‘Secret’ and SBS’s ‘Mask’ and is said to be the male version of ‘Mask’ (except ‘Mask’ wasn’t about revenge. ‘Deal’ deals (pun intended) with a man who lead a happy life despite having very in little in life until the death of his beloved brother made him to vow for revenge.  To accomplish his mission, he will try to enter a chaebol family that kills his sibling. No melodrama will ever be completed without romance that tucks your heart, so does ‘Deal’. It is said that the man will cross path with a woman who has everything but isn’t happy. Their love story will go beyond the class divide and shows what true love is.

Yoo Yeon Seok said in his past interviews about how much he wanted to do an action or noir project. This drama might be slightly off from what he wanted but trust Yoo Yeon Seok to breathing life into dark melo character because that’s just his forte. He is known recently with his sweet and caring image, all thanks to ‘Reply 1994’, ‘Mood of the Day’, ‘Beauty Inside’, ‘Youth Over Flowers’ and ‘WeKid’. But if you carefully follow his repertoire, you’ll find him more in dark psychopathic roles such as ‘Royal Tailor’, ‘Perfect Proposal’, ‘Horror Stories’, and ‘Werewolf Boy’.

‘Deal’ is scheduled to start airing after drama ‘Entertainer’ on 15 June 2016 on SBS’s Wednesday – Thursday 10 PM drama slot.
