The story revolves around the lives of pediatric surgical doctors in Sungwon University Hospital, who are dedicating their lives for the children’s future and for the families’ happiness
Park Shi On (Jo Woon), has savant syndrome and developmental disability since born. Despite his disabilities, he has genius tendencies and exceptional memory. Like normal people, he also has dreams, and his ultimate dream is to become a surgeon in pediatric department.
Cha Yoon Seo (Moon Chae Won), a talented young fellow with easy-going personality and always speak up her mind whenever there is a disagreement with her bosses. Despite her tomboyish nature, she treats her patients with love and takes care of her juniors.
She always stands up for Shi On whenever people mistreat him. Eventually they become closer and fond of each other.
Kim Do Han (Joo Sang Wook), is the youngest doctor who becomes a pediatric associate professor and one of the best surgeons in country. He blames himself for the death of his younger brother who also has developmental disability like Shi On, which causes him to treat Shi On harshly.
However, Shi On is not someone who easily give up him dream.
This drama makes my heart feel warm inside.
The story is beautifully written, using courage and love as the main theme. Shi On can finally smiles because he has these two. With courage he overcome all obstacles and move forward to pursue his dreams. With love from people around him, he manages to fill in the gap and destroy the prejudice against him. Every episode conveys good message that is related to our live.
Acting wise, the chemistry between Joo Won and Moon Chae Won was very good. Everyone plays their role brilliantly, from cold-hearted guy Dr Kim Do Han, nice guy Dr Han Ji Wook, bad guy Deputy director Kang Hyun Tae and funny guy senior nurse Jo Jung Mi, every character gives colors to this drama.
The OST contains with many good songs and one of my favorites is Love Medicine by Joo Won.
Thanks to the writer and director for creating this wonderful drama. What a memorable ride. For me, Good Doctor is one of the best drama in 2013!
