Okay. This drama has the potential to be one of my favourites in 2014. I know I might be putting too high expectations on it, but I absolutely loved the first episode, and I’m screaming for more.
First of all, to those who are not aware, Emergency Couple is about a divorced couple who meet again in a hospital as Interns. I’ve always been a fan of medical dramas – though I have to admit that medical dramas tend to lack on a lot of stuff. I was wondering if this drama couple actually manage to do both the Rom-Com and Medical setting at the same time, without being off balance, and I’m so pleasantly surprised by what I see in the first episode.
We start off with Oh Jin Hee (Song Ji Hyo) & Oh Chang Min (Choi Jin Hyuk) running down the street and entering a church to get married. Then we cut to a scene where both of them were consulting a doctor separately about their married lives. After a huge argument, we time-jump into the present, where the couple have already divorced.
They met again after the divorce, coincidently at a friend’s wedding as a friend of the groom and a friend of the bride – and they met again at the hospital as interns. This just screams fate. Hahahaha. I know that the fate thingy is used quite often in dramas, but this is just so refreshing. They literally hate each other.
I can’t wait for episode 2 because we are officially in the hospital 🙂 Oh my~ if this drama balances the medical portions and romance portions well, I think I found a winner.
