[드라마] Loving ‘Dr Champ’

Yes, I’m loving Dr. Champ! I’m even writing down nice quotes from the drama!

I just finished Episode 4 last night and I was already having fits of laughter and at the same time shedding tears (earlier than 49 Days). I guess I wouldn’t have problems finishing it before school starts. If only I don’t have to work today I can definitely finish it before bed time.

I’ve said this before and I can say this a hundred… even a thousand times – “Camera, how beautiful can you be?” But aside from that, the writing is witty and strong too – so far. If they are gonna be able to sustain it, then this drama can be on my top 10… or even top 5 list. And I guess I’ll have another favorite writer!

And I’m extremely happy and excited about that. I can’t wait for Kim Sun-Ah to be handled by the same writer-director team. My heart is now very at ease. The theme of Kim Sun-Ah‘s new drama is good, but if not handled properly, can turn into a major disappointment. But seeing how the writer-director team executed Dr. Champ, I’m at ease now and I can barely wait for Scent of a Woman.

I’m also happy that Dr. Champ is not just a medical drama, but also a sports drama. I’ve been wanting to watch some sports drama/movies (and I have put Forever the Moment and Lifting King Kong on my to-watch list already) because Kim Sun-Ah’s latest movie too has a sports theme. I’m not the sporty type of person and I rarely watch movies or dramas with a sports theme. I just want to be familiar with the genre before Kim Sun-Ah’s movie is released. So watching Dr. Champ is like hitting two birds with one stone – a sports drama in preparation for Kim Sun-Ah’s Fighting Spirit and at the same time I get to observe how the writer-director of Scent of a Woman work.

I’m really happy I came across this drama. Something to watch while waiting for 49 Days subtitles.

Dr. Champ, thank you for rescuing me from my 9 Ends 2 Outs disappointment. Off to episode 5 now!

  1. What else can I say but “yippee”?🙂

    Actually this drama isn’t flawless and later on, I wish to read your opinion the casting of the actress as the swim team coach was a mistake. Plus Uhm Tae Woong is way too underused – he could have showed much more.

    However the story conveys a sense of reality, including sexual tension, which has rarely been adressed in kdramas, maybe because all characters are around or above 30.

    Speaking of quotes, have you seen episode 8 yet? Because I would almost bet money that one line will soon become one of your favorites. ^_^ *melting just thinking about the scene*

  2. Haha! I thought the swimming coach is “acting” (if that’s what she called acting) that way because of something… apparently that’s how she’ll be until the end? meh!
    I haven’t seen Uhm Tae Woong before but I think his cold-heartedness is awesome. And I think he’s very good at that. I hope his character develops more. I can already picture Eom Ki Joon in Scent of a Woman.
    I can already feel that there’s something in Dr. Champ that is not very usual among Kdramas. A sort of City Hall – Kim Sam Soon – What’s Up Fox ‘mature’ feeling on it. And I’m happy about it since 9 Ends 2 Outs is very disappointing for a 30-something woman story. I’m also excited for Scent of a Woman.
    I haven’t seen ep 8. School caught up with me. If I finish all my school works I’ll continue watching it right away.🙂
