Time Slip Dr. Jin’ has themes of time-travel. Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hun) is a genius neurosurgeon with a cold and severe attitude in his interactions with other people due to his personal pursuit of perfection. Through a mysterious power, Jin Hyuk finds himself transported back to year 1860 (Joseon Dynasty Period). He begins treating people there, but the lack of necessary implements and rudimentary medical knowledge of the period forces him to seek new ways to aid the sick. Through this challenging process, Jin Hyuk eventually becomes a genuine doctor. Edit Translation
Cast & Credits
But despite all that, Time Slip Dr Jin kept me interested. I think part of it was all the unintentionally funny moments. The sets, plots, and action scenes were also pretty good. But the main thing was Kim Jae Joong playing Kyung Tak. You could tell he was giving his all in every scene. Most of the other actors checked out after the trainwreck. Jae Joong kept it up and provided a lot of the highlight scenes towards the end. I think he did an amazing job. Honorable mentions also go to the guys who played the Prince Regent and Young Hwi. They were okay most of the time.
The music was alright, but edited in awkwardly, causing some of those unintentionally funny parts. I really wish this show had been better, but it was just okay. Hopefully Jae Joong gets to be in a better drama next time.
