The intense look in Kim Rae Won?s eyes as he gazed into Park Shin Hye made fans swoon over his photos from Doctors Korean drama. ?
?He must love her a lot to look like that,? one commenter wrote. ?I wish someone would look at me like that,? another fan sighed.
Many believe that the attraction between its lead stars has contributed to the early success of the show. Ratings have been increasing every week, with the most recent official report showing that over 19 percent of TV viewers prefer to watch Doctors over other Korean dramas.
The hospital-based series sits on the top spot among competing TV shows like MBC?s ?Monster? and KBS 2TV?s ?Beautiful Mind.?
Even the team behind Doctors got surprised with the show?s success. Park Shin Hye?s reps from S.A.L.T. Entertainment recently admitted that they were unsure if ?Doctors? would be a hit like the 26-year-old actress? past projects.
In relation to this, Director Oh Chung Hwan also revealed that he had doubts about the Korean drama?s cast, specifically Doctors? male lead, Kim Rae Won. This is because of the 35-year-old actor has always been cast in serious, sometimes even gritty roles. Luckily for the director, Kim Rae Won?s portrayal of a serious doctor worked well with the viewers.
Do you think that other Korean dramas can still overtake Doctors? Or will Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won?s chemistry keep viewers glued? Let us know in the comments below!
