Review – Dr. Kkang (also known as Dr. Gang & Doctor Gangster)
If Coffee Prince and Padam Padam got married… they’d produce Dr. Kkang. Coffee Prince had more attention to detail in set design and better costuming. Padam Padam had superior cinematography and a phenomenal musical score. But if you combine the charm and playful romance of Coffee Prince with the rough-around-the-edges-but-ultimately-lovable male lead of Padam Padam – you might create this remarkably enduring show. What an unlikely surprise to come across a 10/10 show on a whim via dramafever.
If you like romance (epic), comedy (side splitting hysterical without reducing its characters to gimmicky comedy stereotypes) and a solid gangster-action gritty substructure (yikes) – you will like this show. Actually, if you like quality Korean drama – you will love this show. You’re not human if this one doesn’t chisel a crude drawing of a heart on your heart.
