Is Doctors The New Descendants of the Sun?

Still can’t get over the Descendants of the Sun fever? New Korean drama Doctors might feel that void. At the very least, like Song Hye Kyo, Park Shinye plays a doctor in this drama.

But her character is much more feisty than Dr Kang Moyeon. Shinhye plays Yoo Hyejung (not related to Yoo Shijin), who became a doctor after a traumatised childhood. But she’s no damsel in distress – the drama opens with Hyejung single-handedly beating up a group of gangsters who were causing trouble at the hospital she’s working at. HBIC? Yasss.

The lead actor, Kim Raewon, plays neurosurgeon Hong Jihong, who inspired Hyejung to become a doctor. The icing on cake? The show also stars a super cute puppy who was seen cuddling with Hyejung in one of the scenes.

The first episode already garnered a rating of 12.9% in Korea, and it increased to more than 14% for the subsequent two episodes, making it the top drama in Korea currently. We wouldn’t be surprised if it matches up to Descendants of the Sun soon.
