Oh where to begin with this drama.
I feel the plot is kind of a cliche but written well, it can be great. And I honestly loved this drama. The actors were great, the progress was good, and overall probably one of my favorite Korean dramas.

I'll admit I only started watching this because of Song Ji Hyo. I haven't seen too much of her work and I'll also admit at times read more I did see "Running Man's Ace Mong Ji" from time to time during the drama. I feel it just can't be helped though.
I adored the chemistry between Song Ji Hyo and Choi Jin Hyuk. They fit together so perfectly in my opinion. Their cute scenes, fighting scenes, funny scenes etc were great to watch.

The supporting cast was great too. I can't remember all the names but I felt all the family members, interns, doctors and nurses were great. They had enough screen time to move the plot along and were just as important as the main leads. And can I just say the emotional scenes got me wiping the tears away. And that baby. He was so adorable!

One thing I do have to say is that I feel this drama could've been maybe a couple episodes shorter. Some things dragged just a little and I'm glad they didn't make it more than 21 episodes. Compared to others though, the plot being dragged on isn't as bad. Episodes moved by quickly so it honestly didn't feel like I watched 21 episodes.

Music was okay. Same background music and whatnot. Oh, I loved the sound effects that were always used. It just made things even funnier.

This is also one of the few times where I was happy with the ending. When the flashbacks of the drama and bloopers started playing, I sat in front of my laptop feeling satisfied. Wish there could be a special or something later on.

I would definitely watch this drama again and recommend it to anyone. It's a good drama to watch during down time.

What drew me into this story was a recommendation from a friend who rarely points out any romantic dramas, so I was intrigued enough to check it out myself.

In story department, it was rather realistic and not off-putting by any means, I actually cared about every character in this story and not that much about the main relationship, because it was more of a background to everything that was going on read more in the story.

The cast is interesting, there's a lot of chemistry going on between Song Ji Hyo and Choi Jin Hye, and their scenes were quite funny, especially at the beginning of the drama. I think the character I was most concerned about was Kook Cheon Soo, because he seemed a lot like an average person lost in a giant white world and in himself at the same time; simply an individual who can't connect himself with others - more of a good book character that you grow fond of after awhile, rather than an actual drama character. I also loved Shim Ji Hye's character, she depicts a role model to look up to, and Lee Sung Min was classy as well.

There's a few songs from what I recall, and the usual dramatic tones of ER are there, so I have no complaints about it...but oh, Choi Jin Hyuk can sing quite well? It was an interesting input to a certain episode.

There's a solid rewatch value to this drama, maybe not for these 2-3 episodes that I found quite redundant and filler-like, but the entirety gives much to see even second time around.

Now, for the roundup, I'll admit I watched this in two days, and I think that tells a lot about just how indulging and interesting this drama turned out to be. I'm not usually hyped over hospital dramas or couples been-there-and-back, but the final overall of the drama made it so much more than a rekindled romance with a hospital as its back setting. I'm sure all other reviewers have noticed that as well, seeing as there's much of positive feedback this drama has received. There is, simply, so many aspects of life contained here to relate to.

Both drama are about divorcees ending up with each other. One More Happy Ending has a ton of divorced characters, but in Emergency Couple, I believe it was just the main couple.
Recommended by Weirdestone
Also a tvn drama. In both dramas the leads know each other and meet after several years. Both dramas have Song Ji Hyo as the female lead.

    Skipped last couple of episodes, okay drama, but fell short of my expectations. Song Ji Hyo's acting was awkward

    Just completed this drama. 9/10! I will definitely rewatch this again soon. If you're hesitating in watching this drama, just start watching it and see for yourself. This is a gem, finished it in 3 days.

    What I really enjoyed was the medical cases they brought in. Idk if they were medically accurate or not, but that's something that i always looked forward to in any episode. Other than that I wasn't really in love with the first lead couple. Rather I really wanted Cheif and Professor Shim to get together.. hopefully they do. Overall, the team was great and I liked the story,

    PS - I really like Ji Hyo in running man, but I didn't like her here at al dunno know. it was so weird!

    this is my first korean medical drama and i fell in love with it :) also first time to see Song Ji Hyo. No other medical Kdrama can exceed this for me. Ive seen Doctors, DDay, Golden time, and a few more but still this goes to my top list in Medical genre. There is no crazy hospital politics involves just romance and surgery :) 10/10 for me . highly recommended

    I watched it in two days. It's a great, enjoyable drama with adorable characters. Sometimes it's dragging a bit or it's a little cliche at times but it's still very good and really lovely. I loved the romance sooooooo much!!!

    3 episodes in. I like the humour, but can't stand seeing an otherwise strong and smart woman become so dependent upon the man every time there is an emergency. It's taking the fun out of the show. Is this still worth watching?
