Doctors k-drama will be ending later this month. Because of the show?s successful run, fans are wondering if the cast can return for a second season.
SBS already scheduled the finale of Doctors Korean drama on August 23. However, the storyline still leaves a lot of room for a second installment.
The hospital-based romantic series stars Park Shin Hye as rebel-turned-doctor Yoo Hye Jeong. Kim Rae Won stars as her professor-turned-love-interest Hong Ji Hong. Their romance had just began unfolding in the most recent episodes ? complete with a controversial make-out scene.
Their plot took a while to develop since they had to hold back when Hye Jeong was still a student. Now that the two are romantically involved, it is likely for season 2 to expand on their relationship.
The emotional character of Park Shin Hye in Doctors k-drama also still has a lot of grudges about her past. It is likely her unresolved issues will be brought up again if the show returns for a second run.
Aside from the main Doctors k-drama cast, viewers also want the Neurosurgery unit to be featured more. This includes the story of Kang Soo, who might pass his residency. After recently being promoted as a surgeon, Young Kook is also among the possible lead characters in Doctors season 2. Movie News Guide even predicted that he might fall for Hye Jeong?s best friend, Soo-Hee.
The medical-themed series has been receiving consistently high ratings since it premiered in June. According to Nielsen Korea, its debut episode gathered a record 12.9 percent rating. This increased to 14.2 percent on its second day, then 18.4 percent the following week. It topped viewership percentage versus rival shows such as MBC?s Monster and KBS 2TV?s Beautiful Mind.
The successful run of Doctors k-drama has even lead some fans to compare it to the highly successful ?Descendants of the Sun.? The war-themed series will reportedly return for a second season in 2017. Because of this, fans of Doctors could not help but hope for the show to have a second installment too.
