  1. 1 : Bunny Says:

    hyun jin unni!!!
    great acting with eric last time..
    looking forward on yr latest drama!!

  2. 2 : Odies Says:

    Wish can watch it faster, but unfortunately can’t because “Scarlet Heart.” I thought it will air on Wed-Thu drama since another SBS medical drama “Doctors” aired on Mon-Tue drama schedule.

    Love to see Seo Hyun Jin move to become lead role after her success in “Another Miss Oh.” She surely cute. Also for Han Seok Kyu since ” Deep Rooted Tree” and Yoo Yeon Seok (not too long ago) since “Warm and Cozy.” Hope this drama become success too, since this year SBS such a lackluster. Hope for the best and good hardwork.

  3. 3 : Choe77 Says:

    One of my fave pair PD , even his last drama “Mrs. Cop 2” not speak that much for this year. But, sure another his drama that makes me want to watch his work. Like: Giant, You’re All Surrounded, Mrs. Cop 1, etc.

    Yoo PD, hope for the best. Like you do at “Giant” become success drama at 2010. Hope for not usual and suprising story. Can’t wait to watch.

  4. 4 : Tena Says:

    Seems “Doctor” role become one of the hottest Role of the Year and
    Medical drama become one of the trendiest theme of the Year too. Start from
    DOTS, Doctors, W-Two Worlds, Beautiful Mind, Happy Home (although medical isn’t the biggest theme), and now another new drama.

    Want something unusual from this drama, especially the story.
    Why have to 7/11? So sad -_-

  5. 5 : OK OK OK Says:

    will watch because i like both young leads – hope the story is attracting too. 😛

  6. 6 : sue Says:

    i still cant get over she and eric..lasting impression to see them as couple..cannt imagine she and another actor..haha

  7. 7 : Raymond Says:

    Definitely waiting this drama because hyunjin nuna. I’m so fall with those smiling eyes ^^

  8. 8 : Heba Says:

    I wlil watch it for the sake of Yoo Yun Suk <3

  9. 9 : Vana Says:

    Sweet acting in Another miss Oh and Let’s fight Ghost, Seo Hyun Jin unni ~~

  10. 10 : sa_grant Says:

    Seo Hyun Jin is the best!!!

  11. 11 : Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim, o novo drama da SBS Says:

    […] Fonte: KoreanDrama […]

  12. 12 : annmasae Says:

    Exciting Episode 1.
    I’m definitely watching this series.
    The main actress from Another Miss Oh does a great job!!!

  13. 13 : Hannah Says:

    Love the first two episodes!!! I wasnt planning to watch this drama because I’m tired of medical genre, but this drama is kinda different from other medical dramas that I’ve watched! I hope this drama stays its momentum, and don’t go to draggy drama route like Doctors (Doctor Crush).

  14. 14 : Qties Says:

    the 2 episodes are amazing…. waow

  15. 15 : annmasae Says:

    @Hannah Totally Agree. Doctor Crush had a great beginning and then started to drag after awhile. I hope this drama keeps going strong.
    Great script and acting. Hope the ratings get better too.

  16. 16 : lclarakl Says:

    After Doctor Crush/Doctors, I was really excited about this drama. However, within the first 2 minutes the boy yelling got on my last nerve. Not only that, I’m not a fan of the actress at all so I struggled to watch half of the first episode. I’ll try again at some point later–much later. As for me, I enjoyed every episode of Doctors.

  17. 17 : san Says:

    Love the first 2 episodes. Wow! Looking forward for a fantastic series. 🙂

  18. 18 : windsun33 Says:

    This show kicks ass, at least for the first 3 episodes.

  19. 19 : Joan88 Says:

    Though medical drama is already familiar in K-Drama, there are some difference between this drama and other medical drama. I think one of them is the story is in fast pace and action comes in it. As always, Yoo PD.

    These 3 main lead seems promising enough to this drama. Seeing the story, for the first 3 episode, interesting enough. Don’t know what will happen in next episodes. Hopefully not too mainstream.

  20. 20 : JustRozy Says:

    Yay, Hurrah! At last a drama that is warm-hearted, intense, and smart, for Yoo Yun Suk! I’m a fan!

  21. 21 : MaxT Says:

    This drama is far more interesting than Doctors even though I’m not a fan of any of the casts. Worth watching.

  22. 22 : Era Says:

    Yoo yun suk congrats this role suit you the mosttt
    This drama really good. Worth watching
    More cases, more intense than doctors

  23. 23 : mariana Says:

    This is a wonderful drama and an amazing work, you can clearly see it, starting with the screenwriter until the last actor! Fighting!

  24. 24 : Hannah Says:

    By far the best medical genre korean drama that I’ve ever watched!

  25. 25 : HeeBa-ELF Says:

    One of the BEST dramas showing right now!! It’s soooo good!!The cast they are all just wow!! I’m a fan of Yoo Yun Suk and Seo Hyun Jin <3 Kim Sabu is so very good actor! and don't mention the sweet ahjuma Jin Kyung, and the newbie Yang Se Jong 😍 😍

  26. 26 : Dy.K Says:

    Curious to watch the 1st ep because of the writer and the cast. And now ep 6 and still watched it. Even though medical is not my favourite genre (I skipped A LOT on previous Doctors genre on SBS),but this one is definitly on my weekdays list drama. Keep up the good work for cast n crew. Like writers previous drama (Whats with my family) I hope this will be a funny but yet meaningfull one.

  27. 27 : What I’m watching now – dbvdbn Says:

    […] Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim […]

  28. 28 : Regie Says:

    Gonna watch it later 😉

  29. 29 : Hannah Says:

    The story is getting better and better each episode!

  30. 30 : Thomas Woo Says:

    Watched the first two eps. I’m hooked.

  31. 31 : mariana Says:

    This drama is getting better and more interesting with each episode!

  32. 32 : MaxT Says:

    Episode 7 and 8 were pretty exciting. I thought Good Doctor was good, but this drama is better than great.

  33. 33 : Jane Says:

    This is a great drama! It brings home to us about humanity, the poor vs the rich, ambitions, etc
    I enjoy the drama. Kim Sa Bu is certainly very charismatic.
    Seo hyun Jin is good in her role too

  34. 34 : Hannah Says:

    This drama has never failed to make me feel excited for each episode. I’m now more than curious abt the identity of the chinese helper, Ms. Woo

  35. 35 : Takko Says:

    Im in love w/ Kim SaBu. 😍 I respect him as a good doctor. Love his character

  36. 36 : Hannah Says:

    Best medical drama in year 2016 ever! Every episode excites me! 😄😄

  37. 37 : Jane Says:

    Hurray! Ratings have gone up! They deserve it

  38. 38 : MaxT Says:


    It should be the best medical K-drama to date,

  39. 39 : donna Says:

    what is the title of the english song they played at the end of every episode

  40. 40 : Takko Says:

    D-1 til the next ep!can’t wait!!

  41. 41 : Hannah Says:

    Ahh Dr. Kang Dong Joo, why are you making things complicated? I hope he’s just bluffing President Do that he’s on his side.

  42. 42 : karen Says:

    I hope Yoo Yeon Seok & Seo Hyun Ji will sing an OST together..

  43. 43 : MaxT Says:

    The OST part 1 is pretty good. It’s called “Forever Love” by Haebin.

  44. 44 : MaxT Says:

    Going to watch Another Miss Oh and Let’s Eat 2 after this.

  45. 45 : Hannah Says:

    Kang Sam is so cute when he’s drunk. Omoooo

  46. 46 : Simon K Says:

    The actors and actress are good but I think the writer deserve most credit for the success of this drama. Surprise incidence happen in every episode while the story of the main leads moving along, very good writing.

  47. 47 : OK OK OK Says:

    I am enjoying this drama bc all the leading actors actresses act very naturally and well. 😛

  48. 48 : Hannah Says:

    It’s really touching when Dr. kang stayed at ER and tried his best to save the quarantined patients in there 😢

  49. 49 : Seo Says:

    Seo hyun jin acting is so so good so natural.. I really love her..

  50. 50 : annmasae Says:

    @46 Simon Totally Agree. The script is terrific. This screen writer also wrote other great dramas What’s with this family, Gu Family Book, King of Baking Kim Takgu. Hope there is a good ending too. Looking forward to Teacher Kim’s redemption from all the false charges and the main couple living happily ever after. Fighting!!!!

  51. 51 : Ica Says:

    Strange i think, why the doctors in this korean drama too much histeria, yelling, quarrel in ermergency room, that must seen to patient how the doctors are using their logic not their emotions.
    In reality, where we find doctors like that. Yelling between doctors, fighting.
    So this only korean drama not reality. If you like you can see this drama.you dont like dont see this drama.
    I prefer not see.maybe the actor actress in their good acting.but the story to make conflict every episode, they built situation like that
    So strange where we can find between doctors can fight yell quarel in front patient nurse like that.

  52. 52 : Misu Tira Says:

    Really interesting and awesome drama……… Great actors and actresses…….

  53. 53 : aznative Says:

    A final episode (21) will air in the form of a prequel.

  54. 54 : TWoo Says:

    You make a valid point @Ica but one we often hear from viewers who want realism over entertainment.

  55. 55 : Hyojin Says:

    A little bit unusual for medical drama. Fast pace, Bold character, and interesting story. Seems this writer trying to make the villain more interesting and villanious. Even seems familiar enough to guess (for me).

    Han Suk Kyu, his performance is outstanding as Kim Sa Bu.
    Seo Hyun Jin and Yoo Yeon Seok also give an excellent acting perform. Supporting actors and actressews seems fun to watch even this drama in serious mode. One question from me: Where’s the “romantic ” side from Kim Sa Bu? Because the main title is “Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim.”

    Hope win big at 2016 SAF Drama Awards and next year awards since this drama is a hit, even as not high as DoTS.

  56. 56 : Teresita Mondejar Says:

    I find the drama interesting, fast paced and true to life. The mix of characters and situations make the viewers riveted and at the edge of their seats., At least I am. Kudos to everyone involved in this drama.

  57. 57 : Chaimoon Says:

    I would like to see more of you guys in the near future. Maybe a part 2?

  58. 58 : Era Says:

    I adore u so much kim sa bu….

    Pls extend this drama into 50eps please??? LOL

  59. 59 : MaxT Says:

    I agree with the above post. I wouldn’t mine to watch this drama in 500 episodes. Every single episode was so interesting and funny. Great work from Seo Hyun Jin.

  60. 60 : KimWai Says:

    Really like this drama, story line and plot are both good, will watch until the end. One of the best in 2016

  61. 61 : Dy.K Says:

    Dear Writer-nim..i know this is basicly a medical drama ..but i don’t mind to see more of KangYoon chemistry couple…It must be funny if Eric can come as a cameo. Maybe as YSJ’s patient/love rival for KDJ 😀

  62. 62 : Timmy Says:

    The background music reminds me of Sherlock’s theme tune lol. Great drama tho, love all characters..

  63. 63 : chaw Says:

    Why there’s no episode 16?

  64. 64 : azin Says:

    they also won the best kiss award 😀 you should add it

  65. 65 : MaxT Says:

    They won many awards including the grand price. Well done.

    Congratulation to the crew, director, writer, actors and actresses.

  66. 66 : Nicey Says:

    Please do not end this drama. Every patient has their story and leaves us lessons, as well as the main characters themselves it is so nice to know how their story progress. Nice drama!

  67. 67 : Hannah Says:

    I agree, this is the kind of drama that I don’t mind watching it for many episodes. It’s so interesting.

  68. 68 : Ernest Says:

    Actually, I really don’t like to watch any dramas related to medical or hospital issues but gosh! all the hit top-notch Korean dramas are mostly related to medical at all times. How can I missed out one?
    I’m still watching The Legend of Blue Sea and recently watch this drama after saw they won so many awards recently, wander to know why?
    Wow! regardless their professional as doctors career but the storylines really great and get a good praise. Since the first episode, I can’t stop watching this drama, kinda mysterious, funny, romantic, sad and all packed into 1 great drama.
    No way to expect it to be realistic when we come to know they been thrown in a mystery secluded hospital where all the impish characters staffs in that hospital. At the beginning, this hospital look haunted but surprisingly, so many patients are there but why the entrance of this hospital seems no one is there???
    I had watched Han Suk Kyu, all his past hit movies ex: Doctor Bong, Scarlet Letter, Berlin File and he really a cool actor, well deserved an award.
    Hardly to recognize Yoo Yun Suk when he was young in any drama, lately I come to know he was a great actor in many movies. No wonder, I so much addicted to his humorous senses in Warm and Cozy. He looks so much cute and handsome in this drama, maybe his short-cut hair-style suits him more.
    The storylines is good and make me feel excited to know what Master Kim’s pasts and behind his motives?

  69. 69 : Miko Says:

    I love the story of this drama. Is not about romantic but I don’t understand why the title, “Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim”? The writer should awarded because the connections of the characters awesome with reality facts. Making teacher Kim instead a doctor is truly bold. Each episode, he is trying to present us some useful idioms, things won’t change if people won’t change, laid all the cards to help critical patients not just try the best etc.. What make Kim Sa Bu as a gangster is another question? He devoted his life to be a best doctor but what he was critics and faults from public, same as actors themselves. Well, I like the true facts.

  70. 70 : Honey Says:

    I’m catching-up this drama because here got a few eye-candy new actors got my attention. (^Q^). Why Dr. Dong Joo, Dr. Eun Tak and Dr. Im Bum are so pure white and smooth like a baby face? I knew Korean girl like to be fair skin but why Korean guys nowadays so damn fair? I’m kinda loser here because I’m a girl with tan skin-yo.

  71. 71 : Ernest Says:

    @Honey, your comments caught my attention. You can be very fair skin by skin lightening surgery and Korea is famous for that.
    No matter what? I don’t see guys with fair skin are manly. more like a sissy man to me. I prefer tanned skin with well-built rather than skinny tall guys.

  72. 72 : Killme Healme Says:

    Here I’m in this forum. My first comment is how adorable of this Chief Administrator in Doldam Hospital? He is not just the front officer, he is also caretaker, security, accountant and so whatever roles come along, he be there for it. Doldam Hospital is a secluded hospital and what I seen is attractive and romantic hospital? Whoever been to this hospital will not intend to go out? President’s son, Dr. Do even that Dr. jung enemy of Master Kim are attached to this hospital until now. Really appreciate Dr. Kim as a great mentor, always teaching them the right ways to learn,

    In my opinions, I think Yoo Yun Soo is more handsome than Lee Min Ho. Only recently I come to know him because he was no much explore than Lee Min Ho in public as model and spokesman in commercials. Oh, man! I like this actor now. My Ost is “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Frankie Valli. Another thing what I like this drama is every episode ended with meaningful English Ost song titles?

  73. 73 : Jessie Says:

    @Killme Healme, agreed with you that this Chief Administrator Gi Tae is very professional in his job. He can be a spy or detective, who always give reliable information to Master Kim. He was always the reporter first-hand to know the news. Like in episode 11, he knew Dr.Kang got good offers from Chief Yoon Wan. Really like this guy, always care for his staffs welfares in Doldam Hospital.

  74. 74 : YanYan Says:

    Like what I observed that Korean viewers always gave ratings high on every dramas related to medical genre maybe a lot of things to learn beside the story of the dramas.
    Like some netrizens here, I’m also tired to watch all this medical genre dramas because they mostly not fully focus on the leads and more or less the same, they delivered other patients variety stories into the drama to expand the episodes.

  75. 75 : Fafs Says:

    Before asking where’s the romantic part of Kim Sabu, please do learn the definition of romantic first, then you’d understand why the title is like that.

  76. 76 : Mariana Says:

    Love this drama very much. Great to see the ratings keep increasing and it is so much better than “Doctors”. All this contribute to our great Master Kim, well casted by veteran actor Han Suk Kyu. With his experienced and impression made this drama so alive.

  77. 77 : Jen Says:

    I feel Doldam Hospital is much high-class hospital than most modern hospital. The feelings of the entrance is like a hotel and all the structures of wood and antique features the building is so historical. Even Chairman Shin want to hospitalize here.
    Fighting! One more last episode, pls make it over 30%! Going to miss this one of best drama soon.

  78. 78 : Coreen Says:

    Kudos to all the casts in this drama including the Director, Script-writers and crews. All of them deserve an award for this great drama. Watching from day 1 until now, never make me unsatisfactory or disagree with their concepts. Although a lot of fictions added into it but the creative story is very much appeal to audiences.

  79. 79 : Mah Says:

    Going to miss this drama very much. Hope there will be an extension for few more episodes. At the moment has no any good drama can replace this drama, so sad.

  80. 80 : Oranit Says:

    @Killme healme, not only you but I also perceive Chief Administrator Gi-tae was an entertaining angel in there. Teacher Kim and the rest of the staffs there won’t know anything beforehand if no Chief Administrator Gi-tae.
    I’m so appreciated him when he acted as a reporter found out that MERS is fake, and he was superb, he knew everyone background and their intentions to come to Doldam hospital.

    I appreciated Yoo Yeon Suk’s excellent actings here. Hope he will be in more new Kdramas in future.

  81. 81 : Theory Says:

    Why Korean viewers very much appreciated dramas related medical genre than others?

    Because every scenes or scripts shot and written is the fact and get approval from authorities. They can’t simply added fiction tales to spike the dramas. That’s why those dramas related to medical and detective genre had to do a lot of researches before written into a story. For me, I like some reliable facts than all times fictions. Not only entertaining but learn some facts at the end of the day.

  82. 82 : Nicey Says:

    @Honey, Tan is much more beautiful. Men is not manly if he is so white or pale. In America and many parts of the world, you will stand out you will get the envy of those people if you are a little Tan or Tan. Okay.

    Anyway, this drama is very addictive. Better than Good Doctor and Doctors. Highly recommended!!!!!!

  83. 83 : MaxT Says:

    This is the only medical drama has above 28% rating and the last episode could go above 30%. Hope they make a season 2 like Mrs Cop.

    Amazing drama in 2016-2017.

    Come on, for the last episode, S.Korean viewers, please do make this drama reaches 30+% for ratings!

  85. 85 : Norka Says:

    Does anyone know where to find the instrumental of the surgery scene at Ep 15? The scene is Gang Dong Joo doing surgery when the Director shouted at him.

  86. 86 : Hannah Says:

    29%!! Good enough.

    I don’t want this drama to end actually. I still wanna see their actions in Doldam Hospital. I do wanna watch how they’d handle the 6 burned patients from bus accident.

    Kuddos to writers, actors, directors and production team. The best medical korean drama that I’ve ever watched! I’m looking forward for the next project from the writer. 🤗

    Best drama for 2016 and 2017!!!

  89. 89 : Simon K Says:

    Overall a very good medical drama. However, the ending is kind of weird, it leave many things inconclusive. The confrontation between director Do and teacher Kim end up in fist fight, a disappointing plot development.

  90. 90 : Lemonie Says:

    Agreed. One of a kind, good medical drama but I don’t like the endings left-out so many things inconclusive. Are Dr. Kang and Dr. Seo Jung getting married or is Dr. Kang keep getting jealousy each time Seo Jung approach by new doctors?
    Is Doldam Hospital still remained the same status or become popular? Disappointed with the endings.

  91. 91 : Yuling Says:

    I think this drama got good viewer ratings is all based on their accurate and precisely on their surgery scenes and knowledges. Definitely, not into the story points that’s why we can’t get fully conclusions the story about?

  92. 92 : Era Says:

    NOOO…. I really hope no ending for this drama
    Too short.. pls make it like ER(tv series in usa).. 50 or 100 eps i dont mind LoL
    Btw i dont like the ending too, is that all? How about doldam will it have trauma centre as dr. boo yong joo wish? And no final kiss for seo jung& dong joo?

  93. 93 : MaxT Says:

    Wow, even the special episode has 28.7% ratings. That’s the highest rating on a special episode to date. I’m quite happy with the happy ending. Well done to the director, screenwriter and all the actors/actresses.

    Let’s hope there is season 2.

  94. 94 : Simon K Says:

    In case you miss the special episode, you should watch it. It is essentially a new episode, they can call it episode 21 but SBS call it special episode. Please don’t think it is a typical re-run special episode and miss it. The writer probably misunderstand, nowadays HIV can be almost totally suppressed to undetectable level by medication and I think most likely it is illegal to refuse treatment for HIV positive patients. Otherwise, ep 21 is a good episode too.

  95. 95 : Koreanfan Says:

    I think everyone forgot this special episode or maybe, it is a typical re-run special episode as same as most past-dramas. They should announce there will be another additional episode. I’m sure episode 21 can surpass over 30% ratings if everyone know it.

  96. 96 : Maurice Says:

    OMG! I didn’t know it. There is no announcement and every links indicated 20 episodes only.

  97. 97 : Yuling Says:

    I missed this episode too. Just only watched it. No wonder, I’m surprised why Kim Hye Soo appeared briefly in episode 20 and who she is to Master KIm?

    Still confused with the last scenes, are these scenes show how Master Kim got employ in Doldam hospital?

  98. 98 : Lili Says:

    Watch ep 21 at myasiantv

  99. 99 : Miza Timpf Says:

    The last episode 21, says a “Prequel”, but it’s an “Epilog” with flashbacks since the timeline is after the present.

    I enjoyed this drama. It had a really nice feeling overall. The characters were adorable and the villain . . . convincingly unlikeable.

  100. 100 : karen Says:

    BEST Medical Drama for me!!! good actors with good acting plus a very good chemistry.

  101. 101 : gdipm Says:

    Anyone knows the title of the background music of Episode 19 at the 49th minute when the reporter interview the nurse?

  105. 105 : Yolanda Wang Says:

    Heart-warming drama….very good cast! Hope doctor like Kim Sa Bu exist……

  106. 106 : Sony Says:

    I like the story of this drama. Kim sa bu is kind hearted and open minded person. Kan dong ju never realize his mistake, he is too ambitious person and seeks VIP patient to achieve success. I hope in the future he would understand which is right which is wrong.

    Hi, I’m wondering if anyone knows in the last episode where Dr Yoon was talking to a nurse from Geosan hospital, she mentioned that the child on her phone is 5 years old. Does it mean that the child is Dr Kang Dong Joo? 🤔 Anyone knows?

    Thank god that I didn’t miss this greatest drama ever. Extraordinary story and casting!! Proud of everyone in the show!! Excellent performance!!

  114. 114 : shell Says:

    By chance I came across this drama. As I had time to kill, I started to watch. Have been addicted to it since. I surprised even myself. Reason being that I do not like medical shows, plus the fact that I cannot bear to watch operation room scenes. Too much blood there. But here I am waiting every day for the show to be screened on TV.

    Very good show.

  115. 115 : shell Says:

    By the way, the title of this drama is a trap. It does not sound medical-like at all. It sounds more like a romantic story.

    But anyway it caught my attention. I got no regrets watching it out of curiosity as it turn out to be a grest drama.

  116. 116 : Hally x Says:

    Loved this show!
    Nice to see Gu Dong-Mae saving some people instead of dicing them like in Mr. Sunshine (my No.1 show!!).

  117. 117 : Anne Says:

    I watched for Yoo Yun Suk and ended up loving all the characters and him more. Finished watching in two days despite my fear of blood and anything painful. Thank you for this show that is much deserving of recognition.

  118. 118 : AnCe Says:

    Wow seeing a poster of a 2016-2017 drama on the “Popular Now” list! Guess it’s influence of season 2.
