Hello fellow K-Dramatics and welcome to medical drama week here in the community!
This week, I'm covering one of my favorite dramas, Doctor Crush!
Yoo Hye-jung was a headstrong girl in high school with a prickly, gangster personality. Due to her many childhood scars, Hye-jung keeps her heart closed towards other people. However, she changes after meeting her mentor Hong Ji-hong, who plays a key role in transforming her life from a "hopeless" delinquent to a compassionate doctor. They part ways subsequently but meet again after 13 years, when Yoo Hye-jung becomes a doctor.
Why I love it:
Not only is the romance in this drama just heart melting and heart wrenching but the medical side of things in this drama were really well done. I've seen a lot of medical shows, both American and Foreign, where there are these outlandish conditions and these crazy techniques to cure it that are so unbelievable that I can't invest or buy into the situation.
