At first I was planning to watch Emergency Couple only for the leads. In fact, I've had a soft spot for Choi Jin Hyuk since discovering him in I Need Romance and I wanted to see Song Jo Hyo play a happy/funny character. Plus no one can deny they do have some awesome chemistry together. And thankfully the drama didn't let me down. The two actors were great and the development/rediscovering of read more their love was perfectly handled when it could have been a total nonsensical mess.

Surprisingly, what I really cared about the most wasn't the main couple but EVERYONE. All the characters were important in my eyes *whispers* especially Kim Min Ki. That drama is more than "and they rekindled their romance". It's about accepting past mistakes (yours as well as others') confronting your fears and moving forwards (toward your very own happiness). It's about taking care of the people you love and understanding them.

You will laugh, you will shed a few tears (or buckets) and in the end, once the drama is finished, you will happily say goodbye to these 21 hours of well spent time. Because yes, maybe Emergency Couple is not a piece of art per say but it is the kind of drama that makes you feel good about life, that reminds you that whatever mistake you made in the past, it doesn't and shouldn't define you and if that you try hard, you can succeed in anything.

I absolutely love this drama and the whole cast especially my girl from Running Man. This was my first medical drama and it was awesome. I liked the plot and how the story developed. It gave the watchers an insight about the main lead past together. Wonderful story, cast, moral lessons and lets not forget those Hot KISSES!!!

I totally recommend this drama to anyone it was amusing, thoughtful, and good to watch.

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.

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.

    this series was funny/romantic/cute and I loved every single episode, the male lead was looking great Choi Jin Hyuk hoping to see him soon in a new series, my rate is 9/10 and definitely is one of the dramas that I surely going to watch it again

    I feel like a hypocrite! Do you know why?? I will tell you...
    Just a few Days ago I made a comment to Cheese in the Trap complaying that Seo Kang Jun got only praised by the other comments because He is handsome and not because He is a good Actor... I said he is okay but not good enough to be praised for it or soo..
    Yesterday and today I watched Emergency Couple till 11ep. and why do I think CLARA is a good Actress??? hahaha she looks natural on screen but IDK if its because She is Pretty or because She is a good Actress. When I thought what I wrote ABOUT SKJ I feel like a big fat HYPOCRITE..
    haha anyone wants to confess and join me??

    I've watched two very serious melos in a row, so episode 1 has kept me in stitches. Just what I needed!

    I almost dropped this 5 minutes into the opening scene but I'm glad I came back. For me this was one drama with genuine well rounded characters. The Oh couple were both likeable at least once they revealed some of Oh Chang Min's good traits, and their previous divorce added an interesting dynamic to the relationship.

    I really don't understand all the Jin hee hate, I thought her character was well crafted and superbly executed. It was realistic yet optimistic, and there was some real character development. She and the chief were my favourites.

    This isn't a chaebol drama, there isn't any needlessly dragged out love rival arc, it doesn't have any ridiculous, over-the-top exciting event; instead the focus is solely on relationships, and for all those reasons I loved this show.
