Having just wrapped up a Hallyu Zombie Drama Review of Emergency Couple I could go on for hours about all of the ups and downs of this particular drama but since I’ve already done that, I’ll keep this short. While this drama and I got off on the wrong foot, as the story progressed, it and the characters began to grown on me and while there were still plenty of times when I cried, “What the heck?” all in all, it was a decent drama and it ended well enough that I walked away feeling satisfied.
If you’re looking for an intense medical drama, heavy of the medical, Emergency Couple is not it! It’s full of so many medical absurdities it borders on ridiculous but if you’re okay with that and are more interested in a cute-ish love-story, then you’ll probably enjoy this drama. Choi Jin Hyuk (Oh Chang Min) and Song Ji Hyo (Oh Jin Hee) have great on-screen chemistry as do Song Ji Hyo and Lee Pil Mo (Dr. Gook), which means there’s a good chance you’ll suffer from some major second-lead-syndrome at some point but that just makes this drama even better! Choi Yeo Jin (Dr. Shim) and Yoon Jong Hoon (Im Yong Kyu) are fantastic supporting actors as well which makes Emergency Couple a treat to watch, so even if the plot goes wonky at times, there’s always at least one character that will keep you coming back for more.
While Emergency Couple will probably never make my list of “favorite” dramas, it’s still worthy of your time and if you’re at all like me, you’ll walk away from this one with a smile.
