Ghost Doctor showed how Korean medical dramas vary despite focusing on a health-based story.

The rise of K-drama demand also saw an increase in the production of medical dramas. K-drama fans notably crave seeing series that feature hospitals, doctors, medical staff, disease outbreaks, and more health-related themes.

Although the Korean TV and film industries already released a handful of dramas based on the medical industry, they are still able to provide a unique plotline that stirs people’s minds even more.

For instance, Rain and Kim Bum’s Ghost Doctor follows the same genre of medical and romance, and its massive difference from other dramas makes it binge-worthy. The series tells the story of Cha Young Min, whose spirit possesses another doctor’s body despite having completely dissimilar traits, personalities, and medical abilities.

After 16 episodes, the tvN hit series ended its stint with a commendable last episode.
