Park Hyun-sik and Park Shin-hye set the internet ablaze already. Doctor Slump is predicted to claim the title of best K-rom-com of the year
Still from Doctor Slump
Brace yourselves, Heirs fans! After setting the internet ablaze with a scorching trailer, Doctor Slump finally landed on January 27 on Netflix, and let's just say, the pilot episode is hotter than a volcano! Park Hyung-sik and Park Shin-hye are back with their striking chemistry, this time with a delicious love-hate twist. Is it too early to declare this the drama of the year? With this power duo reunited as a couple after a decade, one thing's for sure, Doctor Slump is giving the internet all the feels.
Remember those two overachievers who couldn't stand each other in school? Well, life has a funny way of throwing curveballs. Yeo Jeong-Woo (Park Hyung-sik) and Nam Ha-Neul (Park Shin-hye), two brilliant doctors with egos the size of stethoscopes, are now facing the ultimate humiliation, a career slump. But guess what? Maybe hitting rock bottom together isn't so bad after all.
The Korean drama industry is riding a wave of global popularity, captivating audiences with diverse and compelling stories from the past decade. While some might say K-dramas are ruling the world, it's more accurate to say they are offering a rich buffet of choices for fans worldwide. Fans couldn't get over Song Kang’s My Demon yet, and the South Korean industry dropped Park Min-young’s Marry My Husband, and now Park Shin-hye's Doctor Slump! No doubt, 2024 is giving K-drama fans some hard choices.
However, after the pilot episode of Doctor Slump released yesterday, netizens are gushing over Park Shin-hye and Park Hyung-sik. While one X (formerly known Twitter) user wrote, “park hyungsik is eating up his role so bad his acting is making me feel so many things so good”, another user reminds us, “park hyungsik is called the romcom king for a reason YES cos he always nails portraying funny yet comedic boyfriend character so lovingly.”
Another even made little fun of Asian parents' way of thinking about their children while studying and wrote, “The child every Asian parents want let the house burn but you should just concentrate on your studies”, some remembered the reunion and wrote, “I love that their reunion takes place next to a bunch of bras just swaying in the wind.”
Gripping viewers around the globe, Doctor Slump has climbed to #4 on Netflix's Global Top 10. With its finale set for March 2024, the question remains, will our favourite characters find their happily ever after?
