Good Enough
15 September 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

" Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim " was better than I have expected.

Even though it was twenty episodes long, the pace was great adn it didn't get boring or tiring to watch. They handled the main story nicely and the small cases in every episode were interesting.

The romance, moreover, was subtle and sweet, progressing on a nice pace. However, they never dealed with the leading lady's mental problems. They only talked about it in the first episodes and then they just "cured" her? So, that was not well handled. On the other hand, the performances were pretty great.

So, overall, eight out of ten.
