Thoroughly enjoyed it from episode 1 through episode 20
14 October 2018 | by paulsmithson-192-243826See all my reviews

This the second South Korean drama series I've watched and I have to say I loved it. The premise was an interesting one, and I feel the writers, directors and producers did a superb job of bring this to life on screen.

Special recognition has to go to the truly superb acting performance of Joo Won. How he kept all of those mannerisms up throughout the series was amazing. Chae-Won Moon also deserves a special mention too. Her interplay with the other characters really helped bring the show alive, and the fact that she lights up the screen whenever she's on it makes it very pleasant watching.

I devoured the whole series in less than a month and there wasn't one period during that time when I lost interest. Gripping stuff.

Oh, and one more thing. Good Doctor had good positive messages throughout and didn't rely on sex and violence to keep the viewer hooked.

Highly recommended and high praise to all involved.
