Dr. Jin is an odd show. It's like watching a train-wreck but you can't look away. The acting is pretty bad and over-the-top (with one or two exceptions), the writing makes little sense, and the directing is cringe-worthy.

For a drama that's been preceded by a hugely successful manga and two other adaptations, there was a lot of source material to glean from and a lot of tips to be drawn. But it seems like it was all ignored. Characters were ridiculously inconsistent (often within the same episode), and were impossible to connect with, because often you wanted to shake them. The directing was fantastic at pulling you out of the moment.

The best part of the show may have been the surgeries, which unfortunately, while realistic, were often unnecessary. Scenes of surgeries that could have been left out where shown in their full plastic, bloody, zoomed in glory, while important,plot driving, character development scenes were left out.

Dr. Jin should only be watched if you really have nothing to do, or to wipe a terrible show off your mind. If you're a fan of any of the actors, skip, and especially so if you're a fan of the Japanese dramas or manga.

They have two completely different stories, but in both a doctor from the modern era travels back in time to meet with important people in Korean history.

Both have time travelling. In Doctor Jin, the main character travels to the past, while in Queen In Hyeon's Man the main character goes to the future.

Am I the only one who thinks the leading characters are really annoying?
I think they lost their sense of logic at 3rd episode.
The acting wasnt bad, the decors were really pretty, but the directing has some bad moments.
By my opinion this drama is weaker than Faith or Queen In Hyeon's Man.

@vikisecret OK, thanks for telling! I thought since Chun Hong could travel, he could travel too. That makes sense.

@alexadm81 Jin was imaging the prince ... the prince did not time travel with jin

This was a really good drama, but the ending got me so confused...

Why was Prince Lee Ha Eung talking to Jin Hyeok in the last scene? Could the Prince also time travel? That scene got me way too confused, I can't seem to find any answers...

people keep saying how bad of a drama it is. I think it was decent but the main girl was too annoying all she kept doing was crying and crying all over again.She had no character development at all. all the drama i wished someone will kill her at some point .
On the other hand Kyung TAk has too be the most pitiful character from all the dramas i've seen. that boy lost everything he had,seriously i cried watching him trying fall in his father good graces and get the woman he loves.he deserved at least a speck of happiness .
after ep 17 they screwed up his character, his death is probably the best thing that happened to him .

bromance was the best though <3

@heimi At first, I thought I'm hallucinating while reading your comment :P So many negative reviews :( here. I suppose these viewers dreamed of something else when they started to watch this show.

I started this drama because of Kim Jae Joong only and didn't have any other thoughts or expectations about it. I gave it a try and then noticed everything in this drama is great. For me is not the best drama ever, it's just a very good drama, worth watching. The story is special and so its characters.

مثل ما قال أحد الممبرز أنو أفضل دراما تاريخية طبية

أنا ك مجالي بالطب مررررة حبيتها وحسيتها تراجع لي معلوماتي و أستفدت أشياء جميلة مابعد درستها

بجد أنصحكم بتحميلها ك دراما طبية تاريخية خيالية
أما الي يدور ع الرومانسية ف أبدن لا يفكر يحملها

ك طبية تاريخية خيالية :
