Dr. Champ ep 1-4

30 Nov

I got started on Dr. Champ, another Kim So Yeon drama, to help with my Prosecutor Princess withdrawal. It’s a sports medical drama, I know, not the most exciting genre out there, which was why I didn’t have much expectations for it but it’s been an enjoyable watch so far. It doesn’t make my heart go aflutter or make me swoon like PP does but the story flows along smoothly and it’s easy stuff to relax to after work. We get two rivals ships here too! Short of spoiling myself for the ending though, I can’t say for sure who Yeon Woo will end up with since both guys get space on the poster. This time I know whose side I’m on: team Ji Heon! He doesn’t have the charm of Seo byun in PP but he’s an adorkable man-boy who makes Yeon Woo and me smile. Plus it helps that he has a greaaat bod which is on frequent display. All that athletes training scenes yo!

I also like the frenemy thing Ji Heon has going on with his room mate Sang Bong. Sang Bong is often sarcastic with Ji Heon but I can sense an undercurrent of concern in his cutting words and it appears they have a history together and were probably good pals before so I’m wondering what happened. I’m not feeling Do Wook at the moment and don’t particularly care about his history with Hee Yong who’s annoying me with her endless emo-face.

The only time I’ve squealed so far was when Park Shi Hoo did a voice cameo as Seo byun who calls Yeon Woo’s phone by mistake asking for Hye Ri. I believe I’ve watched that short scene 5, 6 times just to hear mention of my Seo byun and Ma gom. ❤ Heehee, I love it when dramas reference each other or do little cross overs. Apparently Ma gom got a mention in PSH’s drama Queen of Reversals too! Ahh, I’m missing PP!

ETA after ep 5: I wuv me some bromance!!! Sang Bong and Ji Heon making up was so cute and I was snickering like mad when Sang Bong shouted ‘JI HEON AHHHHH~~~~’ into the night sky. Ok ok, I know, you’ve been pining for your high school bestie and angsting in secret for the past 5 years but it’s all nice and dandy now dear boy. So instead of tense shirtless training/sauna sessions, we have playful shirtless training sessions. I’m good either way!
When Yeon Woo decided to treat Eun Mi despite the possible risk of her suffering from penicillin shock, I just knew that Eun Mi is gonna end up collapsing. Nobody died and Yeon Woo ended up keeping her job but I wish Yeon Woo had been wiser about handling the situation. Hmm, hope we see more interesting medical situations soon because it’s been blah on the medical front so far.

    I think pic #2 is reason enough to tune in haha.
    It seems your kdrama train ride is going along smoothly, when are you going to switch destinations and join me with lakorns again, tee rak?
    I’ve gotten to ep 13 of BD- love it BTW- but got distracted as I am on the GRGR high and must scour the entire internet for more fan made mv’s, commercials, interviews and everything I can get my hands on. Can’t seem to get enough of them haah. I really don’t want this lakorn to end.. but once it does.. I may be going through a withdrawal too.
    Hope all is well with life and work- countdown to the weekend J!

    Hi dearie! I know, when I get obsessed with a drama all I can think about is the OTP and would spend hours on the internet looking at everything and anything related. I guess I’m out of my lakorn phase at the moment and the only one I’m looking forward to is the Rome/Susie one I blogged about before (I read on Inwlakorn’s that that’s a remake too! gosh, are there no original lakorns these days?) but I’m not sure when that’s coming out. I’ll be doing a summary list of my 2011 lakorns soon so keep a lookout for that. 😉

    Yay. I’m definitely looking forward to your summary of 2011 lakorns! I have not seen any Rome or Susie lakorns to be honest.. so I’ll just wait to hear your first impressions before deciding on whether I’m going to watch it. I’m excited for Torranee Ni Nee Krai Krong (because of Yadech hehe) but don’t know when that’s going to air. As far as what’s on my radar: 3 Num Neur Thong- for Mahk.. and that’s about as much anticipation I have for the upcoming lakorns =)

      All the Rome and Susie lakorns I’ve watched so far frankly don’t rank high on my list so I’m not sure why I’m looking forward to their lakorn. To top it off, I don’t even know what’s the story except that it’s an action lakorn! Haaa, guess I’m curious to see how this new pairing stacks up and I’m also looking forward to seeing Vicky in the supporting role. In the meantime, maybe I should go poking round old lakorns and check out the Ch7 ones you recommended me.
