The memories of pain and love shape our reality and personality, hence they can be used to find healing in counseling. This is the story of psychiatrist Mo Ian, who specializes in hypnosis treatments. He meets an eccentric, 4-D office girl, Lee So Dam, and through the process of treating and counselling her, he finds a way to heal his own wounds.

I love the cinematography of this drama and the way how cool Kim Young Kwang's character was in all of this. In comparison to his other role in "Pinocchio". I'm glad he gets to be happy and be all cool at the same time. Also... have I mentioned how much I like his jeep? That yellow jeep he is using around is deabak!

Anyways... the main reason I watched this drama was read more because of Sandara Park. I've been waiting for so long to find a drama in which she will be the main lead after watching that CM she had with Lee Min Ho. I was thinking perhaps she will finally have a break... and she did. Even if it's just in a web based drama, I'm still glad they were able to cast her as one of the main leads. Acting wise, Dara still has room to improve but she has definitely improved a LOT from the last time I've seen her act which was years ago (Not including her CM with LMH). As for Young Kwang, he definitely did evolve somehow. Or maybe it was just the character portrayal?

Story wise, this drama was a bit absurd. Don't get me wrong because I loved the characters even the supporting ones, but I just couldn't get the gist of the story. Maybe someone has to explain it to me again or I have to re-watch it to actually understand what happened. I'm still quite confused as to what is the real deal with Dr. Ian and that other guy. For me, there were unresolved issues for the doctor. The story between Dr. Ian and So Dam though is quite amusing, however it lacked a bit of substance. After the show I was saying to myself, "That's it? That's all how it's going to be? Mission? What kind of mission is that???", watching the relationship develop for these couple is frustrating. It was all about cinematography-crying-talking-crying-cinematography-insert music, angst and a few sweet moments.

The music was good and I have no complaints on that, I just couldn't get over the fact that the story line was just up to that given that it only had 9 episodes and 11 minutes run time. It was short and a bit disappointing. I honestly believe this web drama could have been better but as an audience, I had to take it as it is and enjoy it as delivered.

Thank goodness I loved seeing Dara and Young Kwan on screen that my disappointments are skewered by these actors.

Okay, so I watched this short drama purely because I was bored and wanted something that could be completed in one day (without completely ruining my sleep schedule). And I came across this: Dr. Ian. It seemed pretty interesting just from the plot line itself, and I have seen Kim Young Kwang before in Pinocchio and White Christmas, and his acting was more than decent. And I had heard about Sandara Park read more a few times, so I wanted to check this out.

The story had a good concept, it wasn't cliche and it seemed watchable. However, the first couple episodes were very boring and I couldn't get into it, but out of pure boredom, I continued with it. It did get better, by quite a bit actually. Although there isn't much to talk about since this drama only has 9 episodes, with 10 minutes a piece, for those who are thinking to watch this, don't judge it by its first few episodes. Its potential comes later.

The acting was very good. Kim Young Kwang and Sandara Park did a very good job with each other their respective roles. I also enjoyed their chemistry on-screen. However, all of the other actors that were featured didn't make much of an impression and their acting was average. Nothing impressive.

The soundtrack of this drama only consists of one song: Tear Rain by JL. I absolutely love this song, it's so great to listen to. However, the problem with the music is that it's only one song. There's no album, just the single. I would have loved to hear more tracks in the drama, but never mind.

I would like to see Dr. Ian again, but given how short it is and how there's all that much to it, it's unlikely that I'll ever get round to seeing it again.

Overall, the story was quite good and the acting was lovely, but there was only one track to the drama (which was superb). Dr. Ian is, though, a great watch for all you romance lovers out there.

Although it has a very different story line than Dr. Ian, it has the same concept of a web drama having short episodes. It also has Sandara Park as the main actress.

    Tá na média, mais para mais do que para menos, o que salva em Dr. Ian não é o enredo mas a forma de como foi executado, achei fofo o romance, devem ter escolhido a dedo os atores para interpretar cada papel no drama, caso contado em um livro, seria fracasso total.
    Negatividade fica por conta das luzes que ligam-se "meio que do nada" no parque de diversões, notem que cenas anteriores o Dr. Mo Ian (Kim Young Kwang) entra e liga as luzes, mas na cena final as luzes se ligam do nada, alguém ligou mas quem? Sabe-se que ele mora sozinho e o local estava deserto na hora, não havia mais ninguém lá, apenas eles dois. Vai lá saber.

    Loved how this drama focuses on opening up to a new love rather than dating. I would've loved it more if it was a full-length drama. It was so adorable

    I love Sandara, but this series has too much drama for her to handle. With her bubbly personality, I would love to see her in romantic comedy, I think she could do better in that genre.

      Yup, it's 2ne1's one and only Dara ♥ :D. Actually, this drama was her debut into acting in Korea, but she was an actress in Philippines before she moved to Korea. :)
