I wanted to write something about Doctor Stranger episodes 7-10 but it’s going to be brief. It’s not really going to be a recap at all, but rather a bit of rambling.
I have been enjoying the series, but it is going around in circles right now and still failing to answer some questions. Now, I don’t really mind the mystery, but some of the characters are started to annoy me. Well, I shouldn’t say they are annoying me, but rather they are difficult to relate to.
I’m not a big fan of Seung-Hee/Jae Hee (Jin Se-Yeon) as either character. In the first few episodes Jae Hee seemed very sweet, but the Seung-Hee Character appears emotionless. Even when she is acting as “Jae Hee” I’m not convinced it’s real. The way I see her, she has two facial expressions:
The Seung-Hee Expression
The Jae Hee Expression
I don’t really care for either expression. She really bugs me.. and yet I can understand why Hoon loves her. He has such fond memories of her, and of course he would want to protect her no matter what. They’ve been through a lot together.
We’ve learned more about Jae-Joon (Park Hae-Jin), but I’m still not a fan. His character also feels very distant.
I still love Dr. Oh (Kang So-Ra) and Park Hoon (Lee Jong-Suk). Hoon’s been distracted by Jae Hee, but I can understand why. His character to me and his reactions are believable. Same with Dr. Oh.
Anyway, I’m going to continue to watch to see what happens but I hope it starts to come together more because it feels a bit like sand slipping through my finger tips. Less Jae-Hee, more Doctor Oh please (sorry Jae Hee).
Anyone else feel Seung-Hee character isn’t very believable, relatable?
Episode 7-8: 3.5/5
Episode 8-9: 2.5/5
