Placement of Love Line Scenes in “Dr. Romantic 3” Faces Criticism
The distracting melo scenes between Ahn Hyo Seop and Lee Sung Kyung in “Dr. Romantic 3” have left viewers puzzled.
In episode 5 of SBS’s Friday-Saturday drama “Dr. Romantic 3” that aired on May 12th, a shocking episode unfolded with a major medical accident occurring on the first day of the opening of the Doldam Hospital.
The influx of patients, each with their own circumstances, caused chaos. However, the placement of somewhat difficult-to-understand melo scenes has disrupted the immersion of viewers.
The scenes depicting the love line between Seo Woo Jin (Ahn Hyo Seop) and Cha Eun Jae (Lee Sung Kyung) that emerged in the chaotic situation of the Doldam Hospital does not harmonize well with the rest of the episode.
The melo story of the two characters suddenly appearing in the midst of a medical accident of unprecedented scale disrupted the immersion of viewers. Moreover, Cha Eun Jae was the first to discover and witness a boy’s cardiac arrest and death.
As soon as the love story of the two characters emerged as if the accident hadn’t happened, the tension felt by viewers who were focused on the accident was inevitably diminished. They couldn’t fully immerse themselves in both the medical plot and the love line.
In particular, criticism has emerged in Season 3 that the love line between Seo Woo Jin and Cha Eun Jae does not blend well with the urgent situations in the Doldam Hospital emergency room.
The placement of the loveline is a more disappointing aspect compared to season 2, where the growth of Seo Woo Jin and Cha Eun Jae as medical professionals and their love line are naturally intertwined.
Considering the scenes that have received positive responses from viewers, such as Kim Sabu’s fierce demeanor, or the tense emergency room situation, which showcase the real charm of a medical drama, it may be necessary to pay more attention to the placement of the love line scenes.
