Drama: Good Doctor Revised romanization: Goot Dakteo Hangul: 굿 닥터 Director: Ki Min-Soo Writer: Park Jae-Bum Network: KBS2 Episodes: Release Date: August 5, 2013 -- Runtime: Mon & Tue 21:55 Language: Korean Country: South Korea Plot A young man named Park Shi-On has autism and a developmental disability. His mental age is that of a 10-year-old, but he becomes a paediatric surgeon. Meanwhile, Kim Do-Han, who is the best paediatric surgeon, finds himself frequently in confrontation with Park Shi-On. Notes "Good Doctor" takes over the KBS2 Mon & Tue 21:55 time slot previously occupied by "Don't Look Back : The Legend of Orpheus" and replaced by "Future Choice" in October, 2013. Early Korean title was "Green Mes," which translates literally to "Green Scalpel". The word "Mes" is derived from the Dutch language and used in Korea/Japan to refer to a "scalpel". Title was then changed by KBS2 staff to "Good Doctor" due to some people's unfamiliarity with the word "Mes". First script reading took place June 9, 2013 at KBS Annex Building in Yeouido, Seoul. The script reading lasted more than 3 hours.
