Then there's a love triangle, and also a cheesy romance when the romance actually does happen.

You know how hard it is to watch a kdrama that has a storyline that can easily fit in as movie-length, that is instead fleshed out into 16-20 episodes? Literally, just because you have 1-2 important scenes in the episode, doesn't actually make the episode that important, because you wasted all the other parts.

DOTS takes all its time and has a grand story that wastes no episodes.

It's honestly a piece of art, and it saddens me that people try overlooking this drama just because it was popular and was written by Kim Eun Sook. Even Goblin was a wonderful acclaimed story that was a great follow-up project to Descendants Of The Sun.

The music was wonderful, the acting (with the 4 leads) were outstanding, the cinematography was gorgeous, the storyline was filled with very interesting ideals done in a great and wonderful way, and the romance felt just so real.

My husband is one to make jokes during serious times too so we related to the leads for that too.

Lol and we Did fall in love and date right away 27 years ago but we aren't Korean so I know that was also different.It even gives the second pairing a good amount of time to develop.But most importantly, THERE WERE NO WASTED EPISODES!Shi-Jin (Song Joong-Ki) is the captain of the special forces.He catches a motorcycle thief with Sergeant Major Dae-Young (Jin Goo). Mo-Yeon mistakenly assumes Shi-Jin is part of thief's criminal gang.I still enjoy the drama and the way it just flowed from one drama to another , great writing kudos to the writers they did an amazing job !!!!!! this is one ofy fav drama..first when i watched ep1 i didn't like it..i thought it is also like typical love- story. They made his character so important that they forgot to explain why he choose to be a Volunteer Doctor, Also the back story of Agus/Argus aren't you also curious what made him go over to the dark side? So far, it is not because it focuses on the military that I am not enjoying it too much, but because of the cheesiness of it.
