At Doldam Hospital, Dr. Kim Sa Bu and his team are committed to saving lives. After three years, a state-of-the-art trauma centre is set to open, equipped with the latest in medical technology. Prior to the centre's official opening, however, a crisis unfolds on a North Korean ship that's drifted into South Korean waters. Doctors from Doldam Hospital fly out to help the critically injured aboard the ship. However, the patients need to be transported to the hospital. To complicate matters, the South Korean government wants the North Korean patients returned to their country as part of diplomatic efforts with their neighbouring country. Amidst the chaos, Cha Jin Man—the father of Cha Eun Jae and a former rival of Dr. Kim Sa Bu—is brought on board to run the new trauma centre.

Dr. Romantic 3: A Riveting Battle of Ideologies & Gripping Medical Cases

Dr. Romantic 3 primarily revolves around the clash of ideologies between two main characters. The first ideology is embodied by Kim Sabu, who represents an idealistic style of thinking. The second ideology is portrayed by Prof. Cha Jinman, who embodies a realistic style of thinking. While some may not agree, Prof. Cha Jinman was undoubtedly one of the main characters throughout the show.

In the last four episodes, we witnessed intense clashes of opinions between Kang Dongju & Cha Eunjae + Seo Woojin.

Neither Kim Sabu's idealistic thinking nor Prof. Cha Jinman's realistic thinking seemed perfect to me.

However, I found myself partially leaning towards Prof. Cha Jinman's realistic approach. From my perspective, he wasn't the villain that many people made him out to be (I know actor's controversial past but here I am only talking from character's perspective).
I appreciated how he shed light on the challenges doctors face due to angry patients & their families. In the end, doctors are human too & they deserve respect. While he wasn't entirely right, his realistic mindset resonated with me more compared to Kim Sabu's idealistic approach.

In terms of romance there wasn't much development. The main couple's romance seemed stagnant although they started living together but unfortunately, FL's family created unnecessary obstacles that hindered their progress.
The second couple had a smooth relationship until an unnecessary breakup trope was introduced. Frankly, the reason for their breakup seemed quite childish to me.

The cases featured in Dr. Romantic 3 were engaging & intriguing. Personally, I found the cases in Season 3 more interesting compared to those in Seasons 1&2.
Specially, collapsing building case & fire at the chemical plant were the most captivating to me.

Overall, I enjoyed Dr. Romantic 3 more than its predecessors because the cases in this season intrigued me the most.

FINALLY after 3 years and it did not disappoint

my favourite medical drama is back!! i didnt think i could wait 3 years for this season to come out but i waited and its finally here and it definitely didnt lower my expectations.

this cast is one of my favourite casting, ever i think. also the new additions to the cast, Lee Shin Young and Lee Hong Nae is the best thing ever.

i might change my rating depending on the ending but right now its amazing, the plottwists and storyline is amazing. (i have changed it and the added info is below)

this is the second drama ive watched with Lee Hong Nae in it but hes such an amazing actor must i say, i couldnt get over his acting in 'the uncanny counter' that i honestly thought he would be evil in this drama as well because of the impact he made in that drama.

and now i have finally finished the drama and can i say that it did not disappoint ONE BIT. kang dong ju coming back was so unexpected but definitely not random. it helped the storyline go from a 9 to 10 in my opinion. i loved the fact that there was plot twists and other surprising things like seo woojin knowing kang dong ju and the history behind that.

i also saw someone say that yoon a reum and park eun tak breaking up was unnecessary but i thought the total opposite, it helped their relationship grow and taught them a lot.

ALSO THE LITTLE ENDING SCENE, hopefully its hinting at a season 4??? i really hope to see season 4 with both season 1 and 3 casts combining to make doldam a great hospital. 100% the best medical drama ive ever watched
