"Dr. Romantic 2" sets the bar high for medical K-dramas as it features jaw-dropping scenes and dynamic chemistry between the lead stars Han Suk Kyu, Ahn Hyo Seop, and Lee Sung Kyung.
Who would forget the tough love of Dr. Kim Sa Bu, also known as Teacher Kim, portrayed by the 56-year-old award-winning actor.
In the second installment of the SBS drama, Doldam Hospital faces a challenging situation after three of its best doctors have to leave the medical center.
The shortage of medical staff led the teacher Kim to look for up-and-coming doctors as they gained extraordinary experience under his wing.
It has been a year since the top rating medical K-drama "Dr. Romantic 2" wrapped up the season with breathtaking scenes as Dr. Kim Sa Bu made everyone's dreams come true--from Cha Eun Jae's (Lee Sung Kyung) constant battle with herself to Seo Woo Jin's (Ahn Hyo Seop) massive debt.
Just in case you miss the "Dr. Romantic 2" cast and wondering what they are up to now, here's a glimpse of their activities after their lives at Doldam Hospital.

The award-winning actor reprised his titular role as Teacher Kim for the second season of "Dr. Romantic."

Lee Sung Kyung (Cha Eun Jae)
In the drama, Lee Sung Kyung plays the second-year fellow Cha Eun Jae.
She is known to her juniors as the legend for acing every written exam; unfortunately, the only thing that stops her from becoming one of the greatest doctors is her self-doubt as she would get nauseous every time she performs surgeries.
Her impressive performance in "Dr. Romantic 2" led her to win the Excellence Award at the '2020 SBS Drama Awards alongside co-star Ahn Hyo Seop.
Now, the 30-year-old beauty is also returning to the K-drama world with the new series "Shooting Stars" together with "Penthouse 3" star Kim Young Dae.
