“Doctor Slump” is a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of a couple, Yeo Jung Woo (played by Park Hyung Sik) and Nam Ha-neul (played by Park Shin Hye), whose lives take a downturn and then go through a romantic revival. The drama, directed by Oh Hyun-jong and written by Baek Sun-woo, promises to bring laughter, excitement, and heartwarming comfort as the two rivals find light in each other during their ‘failed lives.’

The chemistry between Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye, who are reuniting after 10 years since “The Heirs,” was perfect. Park Hyung Sik, playing star plastic surgeon Yeojung-woo, showcased another transformation as he falls into the worst slump of his life. From being the top student in school to becoming a star doctor, his character’s emotional rollercoaster after a medical accident adds depth to his role.
Park Shin Hye, in the role of Nam Ha-neul, a doctor suffering from burnout, signaled her return to romantic comedy.
