This drama is based on 1999-2000 MBC drama series “Hur Jun”. Because of the similarities between the two main characters of the show, “Hur Jun” has often been called as male version of “Dae Jang Geum”.

The story is set in Joseon Korea, primarily during the reign of Seonjo. The story covers a time that is approximately 50 years after the death of Dae Jang Geum (the reputed first female doctor of Joseon Korea). It depicts the dramatic life of historical figure Heo Joon who wrote the oriental medical textbook “Donguibogam” and became physician for King Seonjo. Kim Joo Hyuk will plays Heo Joon in this drama.

Yoo Ui Tae (Baek Yoon Shik) plays Heo Jun’s mentor who is the single greatest influence in his life. Meanwhile, Ye jin Ah (Park Jin Hee) plays a lady who lost her parents at a young age but was raised by Yoo Ui Tae, and grows up learning medicine from him as well. She eventually becomes a royal nurse and works alongside Heo Jun and falls in love with him. Yoo Do Ji (Nam Goong Min) will plays Yoo Ui Tae’s son.

    I just finished marathoning it…. Loved it so much… Absolutely one of the best this year.. I wonder what the ratings were like? Superb acting by all, but especially, Kim Joo Hyuk in the title role…. I am surprised and disappointed he did not get a prize for this performance..

    I suppose this is the best drama for the year 2013 (well, as far as I have watched). The story line is good and the performance of the lead characters are remarkable. The phasing is not boring considering I’ve already watched the previous Hur Jun and I am quite familiar with the flow of the story. The director and the script writer are commendable. Two thumbs up for all the effort. Keep it up.

    It’ just a sad to know that this drama did not get a high rating.

    The extraordinary drama ended on Wednesday 29th October 2014. For almost a year I was at home dot at 7.00PM. A fantastic serial to watch with excellent dubbing in Hindi. I have missed quite a few episodes initially because of ignorance. I am at pain that the glorious serial ended.It added value to my life.

    Request DD Bharati to restart telecasting some time in 2015, preferably from January itself with a bit of advertisement for wider communication .A must see for every student studying medicine as well as practicing doctors.Compared to serials aired these days, this is one of its kind that the entire family can watch together.

    Need to know where to find the all episode DVD. Any movie on the subject with english subtitle? Any book ?

    Hats off to DD Bharati.They deserve national award for their exploration of the subject, dubbing and telecasting the drama that produces far reaching impact on Indo Korean relationship. DD Bharati should invite the team of actors to India for some kind of felicitations
