Thanks to ONE, the #1 Korean entertainment channel in Singapore, K‐drama fans will remember 10 October 2015 fondly as the day when one of the top four Kings of Hallyu, Joo Won, arrived in Singapore.
Starring alongside Joo Won and Park Hye Soo in The Gang Doctor are also Korean big names, such as Kim Tae Hee (Jang Ok Jung), Jo Hyun Jae (49 Days) and Chae Jung Ahn. The show is the most popular Korean prime‐time drama series of 2015, garnering record ratings in Korea and in the region. It is the first TV series to cross the 20% ratings mark in Korea since the 2014 supernatural hit My Love From The Star. As a result of the immense popularity of the series, it was even extended from 16 to 18 episodes.
