This drama was one that I had to force myself to continue. At times it was so slow that I just wanted to drop it, but for some reason I kept watching it anyway.

The story is nice, but I don't think it reached it's full potential. To me things just went too well, there was a point of climax in the drama that was whole-heartedly amazing. I did like how all read more the characters went through some development and all the other interns were marginalised and had their own small stories and problems.

This is one of the only dramas where I didn't cry at all nor did I feel any strong attatchments to any of the characters. I had no end-of-drama-withdrawal at all.

The acting was a bit too forced sometimes, the cast was wonderful, but there were some scenes that were just too forced. Especially with Chang Min's mother.

I loved the music, it went well. and listening to Jin Hyuk sing was really nice.

I think this drama could've been a lot better.

When I first started this drama, I thought it was going to be the typical medical drama. I was wrong.

Emergency Couple was fresh, funny, and I grew to like every character on this show. Anybody can relate to the main protagonist and this is important because a drama isn't that meaningful if it isn't a bit "real".

I don't want to complain. This drama made me excited every week but I read more thought that after episode 16 the story dragged too much. We had already understood who was gonna end up with whom, or what they would choose to do in the future. They should had wrapped things sooner than they did, and I was getting annoyed that they would not decide on something already. When there isn't much storytelling to do, you should end your show at 16 or 17 episodes, not 21.

This fact made the ending a little blah. They didn't have time to let the viewers see a development of certain relationships. This made it seem as if the ending was open, and ugh, I am not fond of open endings. I felt the ending of this drama had meaning but at the same time it didn't. I have mixed feelings!

Anyway, with this I'm not saying not to watch this drama. You should watch this drama. You won't regret it. Maybe just skip to the end after episode 16. :P

These two dramas may got different concepts (one is with doctors, the other one is with detectives), but you'll definitely love them both. The main couple starts with hating and fighting, but finish loving each other. While the 'first generation' (the elders, the team-leaders) have their own story, kind of similar in both dramas: they were together, but broke up and the female came back from aboard and start working together again. And another similarity is the chemistry between the chief and the female lead, even though in You're All Surrounded lasts only for few episode, while in Emergency Couple is in the entire drama.

Both dramas are about divorced couples which meet again after some years
