I think if I remember correctly, the writer of Blood wrote Good Doctor and I think I’m the only person who didn’t like that drama (though Joo Won was amazing), so maybe it was the hospital setting that didn’t do much for me.

Yet when I watch the show, I don’t notice any chemistry, which then results in me spending all my time watching out for those two characters to see if my initial opinion was wrong lol. Episodes felt quite long (and boring; to be honest i FF-ed a lot) and the background music sometimes didn’t quite match up with what was going on on-screen!

I guess Lee Soo Hyuk doesn’t quite have the look one would associate with “ordinary guy” since he looks so unique! lol random thought is random. I actually enjoyed this drama, but at some point I was in it only for the romance between the two leads which I actually enjoyed.
