Synopsis

This drama was fully pre-produced before airing which is a departure from the live-shoot production format that characterizes most Korean dramas.

Yoo Shi Jin (Song Joong Ki) is the captain of the special forces. He catches a motorcycle thief with Sergeant Major Seo Dae Young (Jin Goo). The thief is injured during his capture and is sent to the hospital. Dae Young realises his cellphone was stolen by the thief and goes to the hospital to retrieve his cellphone.

In the emergency room, Shi Jin meets Dr. Kang Mo Yun (Song Hye Kyo) for the first time. He falls in love with her immediately. Mo Yun mistakenly assumes Shi Jin is part of thief’s criminal gang. He proves to her that he is a soldier with the help of army doctor Yoon Myung Joo (Kim Ji Won).

Shi Jin and Mo Yun begin to date, but due to their jobs, their dates don’t go well. Shi Jin takes an order to lead his soldiers on a peacekeeping mission to the fictional country of Urk. Meanwhile, Mo Yun becomes upset that she fails to become a professor due to a colleague’s privileged background. When Shi Jin and Mo Yun meet again, they talk about their views on life and realize how different they are. Shi Jin, as a soldier, kills to protect lives and Mo Yun, as a doctor, tries to save all lives. They say their goodbyes.

Eight months later, Mo Yun rebuffs the sexual advances of hospital chairman Han Suk Won (Tae In Ho) and as a result is assigned to lead a medical team in Urk. There, Shi Jin and Mo Yun meet again… (source)

    It’s not my first time to watch a love story of a soldier and a doctor but this is the best! The story was so great. It teaches friendship, brotherhood, patriotism, bravery, responsibility and respect. It shows great love. It very inspiring because it tackles and raises common issues such as, bad politics, corruption, lack of education, diseases, poverty and hunger, but you will still find the beauty of things despite of all. I must commend the director, the scriptwriter (s), staff and crew and all the actors. They were all great! The show brings back good memories. The lines were so cheesy that it makes me want to go back to my younger days and be in love again. The lead actors were awesome! New fan here. 😍 #KiKyo I hope you get to read this. You’re so cute together. I wish to see you alas real couple. More success and real happiness is my wish to both of you.

    So far in 2016 until right now, November 13, 2016… there are only 2 Kdrama in 2016 that make me go to my school at midnight just for searching fastest hotspot to download every episode of the drama week by week. Yeah those two drama is “Descendants of the Sun” and “Doctors”. You can imagine, at midnight when everybody r sleeping and school gate is closed, i went to school just to download those two dtama. Cz so far , i think the best drama in 2016 is DotS and Doctors. Although between both of them DotS is on the top of Doctors. Definetely, i will give my vote in koreandrama.org awards just for Descendants of the Sun and Doctors. Ajja ajja fighting!!!! 😙😙😙😄😘😹🙆🙋 #Dots/DoctorsTheWinnerOfPollingThisYear

    Hello!

    I saw this drama. It was very nice and interesting. But the author has made a mistake. All Muslims, are not Arabs. The number of Arab countries in the world, is 22, and   And the number of their population is approximately 389,373,000, the number of Muslim countries in the world is about 46 and the number of their populations is approximately 1,703,146,000.

    Fan2 Says:

    I don’t like to watch korean drama in general, it’s so cliche and annoying with a rich guy and hopeless girl needs saving. But my friend told me about this drama and once i watch it i’m hooked! the story is so good, it has humor, action, romance and the whole nine yards… And I’d have to agree that song joong ki is so hot! He’s grown up now, before he’s cute but more like cute pretty boy. Now he’s just handsome with prefect body and face… How can someone be that good looking, no wonder he cause a syndrome in asia. Hope to see more of his movies
