Dr Jin - Korean Drama 2012

Updated on September 28, 2014

Time-Travelling Fantasy History Romance Medical Sageuk Korean Drama

2012 is a year of time-travelling Korean Drama, starting from Operation Proposal, Rooftop Prince, Queen In Hyun's Man and now, Dr. Jin.

Based on the adaptation of Japanese manga & drama Jin, Dr Jin will portray a story of a very successful neurosurgeon from the modern world who time-travel to the Joseon era (year 1860). Stuck in this Joseon era, he uses his medical expertise to help the people there even though he faces many challenges as well as lack of medical equipment and medicines.

As a big fan of Jin's Japanese drama, I'm a bit skeptical with this Korean adaptation. Not to mention that Dr Jin's scriptwriters were the scriptwriter of my least favorite Korean Dramas: Road No 1 & Spy Myung Wol. But the casts are fantastic, so I'll give this drama a chance.

This drama will be quite different with its Japanese counterpart because in Jin J-drama, it portrays a story about Edo era and Sakamoto Ryoma (who is a real historical figure from Edo era). While Dr. Jin will portray a story about Joseon era & Korean history (Lee Ha Eung or Heungseon Daewongun who was the father of Emperor Gojong) . So it will be an interesting drama.

Are you excited for Dr Jin?
