Synopsis

In order to stop a war from occurring between North Korea and America, Park Hun and his father--a famed heart surgeon--are forced to North Korea. There Hun is trained by his father to be a doctor. He also falls in love with Song Jae Hui, a girl he believes to be the love of his life.

In a crazed turn of events Jae Hui is taken away from Hun, and he is taken to a North Korean facility where he furthers his abilities as a doctor and surgeon. When he finds Jae Hui, he saves her life only to have her torn away from him again-- just as he finds sanctuary in South Korea.

Hun works as a 'doctor' in South Korea. He performs a life saving surgery in a top hospital where he also manages to see a woman who looks exactly like Jae Hui. In order to make money, and bring Jae Hui to South Korea, he takes a job at Myeongu University Hospital.

The first thing I have to address in a review is the ending...because I loved it so much. I don't have one standard ending that I like to see with dramas, I just want to see one that is appropriate to that specific series, that's all..so with that I couldn't be any happier.

Now as for the storyline...I loved it. I know there are reviews and comments around about how it's choppy or bad and it falls off...and seriously, I just shake my head at that because I realize while reading some of those comments that people really just wanted to see things unfold to suit them, and when that didn't happen exactly - they got fed up. Lol, if you want something like that you need to create your own story and have it televised.

There is nothing I would have changed about this story. It unfolded really well, and as far as how things developed....every single action made sense if not right away, then at some point later. If there is some confusion, its because the writers wanted you to be that way...its not because there is a fault with how things unfold.

Character wise...loved them all as well. From the adorable Park Hun to the disgusting Jang Seok Ju. They were all pretty well developed, not the least bit choppy. Most of ALL, EVERYONE was consistent. And when I say this I don't mean with sides to choose or anything but that for instance Hoon is not a fickle person and no matter what is thrown at him or how he deals with it.....he's not going to suddenly change character in order to do so and leave the viewers feeling as if they stumbled onto another drama. This can be said about every character and I loved it.

Actor wise, they all did darn good jobs, everyone. I'm so happy to see Park Hae Jin and Seok together especially. Then Gang So Ra and Jin Se Yeon who has really improved a lot. Bo Ra too did a job that was very suitable for the character she was given, as did everyone else.

This is a series that has a mind of its own. Its not going to unfold the way you always want it to, it doesn't carter to "popular opinion" THANK GOODNESS. I think its a real gem. Every single element is explained when its necessary to be so, everything falls in place in some way. I loved every episode.

Both series involve doctors who are above average in the way they perform surgeries (i.e. they can visualize the anatomy of a person and know how the surgery should be performed). Though Good Doctor is more light-hearted, both series have doctors who face adversity in the pursuit of becoming a doctor.
