(South Korea, 2016; SBS)

Teacher & Students

It’s a busy week on the lists with the simulcast premiere of a high-profile Korean medical drama and two series finales.

A wildly unorthodox surgeon becomes a life-changing mentor to two medical residents in Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim, a miniseries that finds its protagonists challenging the politics and hierarchies of the healthcare system, in the name of patient care.

Han Suk-kyu (Tree With Deep Roots), Yoo Yeon-seok (Answer Me 1994), and Seo Hyun-jin (Another Oh Hae Young) lead an ensemble cast that features Choi Jin-ho (Oh My Venus), Jin Kyung (Uncontrollably Fond), Kim Jung-young (Heard It Through the Grapevine), Lim Won-hee (You’re All Surrounded), Kim Min-jae (Because It’s the First Time), and more. (Note: Alternate titles for this series include Doctor Romantic and Romantic Doctor Kim.)

(South Korea, 2016; MBC)

An unexpected promotion requires a move to Shanghai – and triggers a relationship crisis for a young woman and her long-term boyfriend – in the Taiwanese drama Life Plan A and B, which stars Rainie Yang (Drunken to Love You).

The Flower in Prison, a Joseon-era legal drama headlined by Go Soo (Empire of Gold) and Jin Se-yeon (Bridal Mask), is now available in its entirety with English subtitles. T-drama rom-com Prince of Wolf, with Derek Chang (Be With You) and Amber An (To the Dearest Intruder), is available, too.

The concluding episodes for K-dramas Jealousy Incarnate and The K2 also air this week.

See below for more about these and other shows with licensed streams and English subtitles.
