Overall, I still liked the drama. There were times when the story seemed to be repetitive and the constant persecution and denial of Baek Kwanghyun's ability as a physician grated on my nerves. The medical procedures were interesting to watch and I suggest never to be caught eating during some episodes; however, the major focus was on the political intrigue which detracted from the story greatly. When the focus was on medicine, read more it was great; when it was on the machinations of the nobles and ministers, it could get downright boring. Would I recommend? Only for the hardcore medical saguek drama watchers.

- both are historical drama that involve medical genre that surgery is the only option though they're different plot coz Time Slip Dr. Jin has a time travel genre and Horse Doctor male lead is from the noble... some kind of status and faced some difficulties... and there's no time travel genre
- both are interesting to watch especially those who likes medical dramas

    I love Seung Woo to death.. His work in his movie Chunyang is the very first movie I watched when I was in 5th grade elem. But Im just so sadden by the fact that his first ever drama, this Horse Doctor beaten King of Dramas from SBS that aired at the same time slot. Its heart breaking... </3


    Because King of Dramas is a legend. Its like One Piece for all drama lovers out there.. *sigh.. Maybe aside from this as Seung Woo's first drama, the success of Queen Seon Duk and 49 days of his lead actress made them beat Myung Min from King of Dramas.

    Nevertheless.. its really heart breaking... </3

    It's a 9.5/10 for me. I should have given it a 10 if not for the child stars. The show started kicking off lively and regain its pace when the adults took place. I'm so glad I did not drop it.

    I am sooo into Jo Seung Woo-Lee Yo Won couple. Their electrifying chemistry and rom-com scenes are electrocuting me.

    I'm not really sure about the plot but since Jo Seung Woo is playing the main role I guess I'll have to give it a chance xD I hope it's good! >_<

    This is the longest drama I've seen...
    Now I want to rewatch this drama in a movie. Watch the story again in 2 hours - not 50! :D

    With this drama, the screenwriter has proved her incompetence once again.
    You can't fill the episodes with a lot of flashbacks and useless and repetitive scenes with useless and stupid characters just because you're not able to make the story interesting. I feel like she has made a fool of the viewers all the time.
    This drama had a lot of potential and a lot of elements to be a masterpiece, if only the screenwriter knew how to do her job. It's really a pity.

    In spite of everything, I enjoyed watching it because of Jo Seung Woo and his portrait of Gwang Hyeon's character, I just couldn't take my eyes off him. I liked the OST, So Hyang's song is so beautiful, love at first listen. The instrumental pieces are heartwarming.

      I liked Ji Nyeon's character too and she and Gwang Hyeon were cute together, in fact I wanted more scenes with them. The screenwriter could make better use of Ji Nyeon's character, though. Lee Yo Won has done a good job, even if, like you said, she is better suited to play characters like Deokman.
      I didn't really like Yi San, maybe I had too high expectations. I liked Yi San's character and Lee Seo Jin's performance was great, but the drama itself was pretty boring and didn't catch my attention. I couldn't help but skip a lot of parts while watching. (It was the same with Dong Yi)
      Horse Doctor is not a bad story, there are things that made me angry but, overall, it's still a heart-warming drama with a loving main character. Surely not a waste of time :)

      Yes, Master Saam and the tomboy were funny, I like the way she calls the physicians: idiot 1, 2 and 3 X°D Seong Ha is such a bland character! I totally agree with you, another wasted character. The King in Dong Yi was excessively stupid, at first he was funny but then becames annoying.
      I want to watch Heo Jun from the same screenwriter that made Jumong, it's similar to Jewel in the Palace, hope it's good :)

      When you click on the edit button, a drop down menu should appear right below it. Then you go to "Duration" and edit episode #

      Ep 48 has already aired in Korea but it's not available yet :(
      I want to watch it so badly but If I start now, I will probably devour all the episodes available in 1 week and then I'll have to wait for the last episodes and subs T_T I hate waiting!XD

      you can do this in one week? It must be a really good drama. I could pull that off with queen seon duk, but I believe I won't be able to do it with horse doctor. But if you really couldn't take it to wait for the last episode, schedule that drama for next week ^^

      If I like the drama very much, time permitting, I can marathon all episodes in 1 week. I'm so curious abouth this one, I like the story, the cast and the director, I just don't like the screenwriter (I would have preferred Queen Seon Deok and Dae Jang Geum's screenwriter, I didn't really like Dong Yi and Yi San).
      I just started another drama so I'll start this one next week. ^^ Hope it's good and it won't disappoint me!
