Jin Hyuk is a genius neurosurgeon with a cold and severe attitude in his interactions with other people due to his personal pursuit of perfection. Through a mysterious power, Jin Hyuk finds himself transported back in time 150 years, to the year 1860 in the Joseon kingdom. He begins treating people there, but the lack of necessary implements and rudimentary medical knowledge of the period forces him to seek new ways to aid the sick. Through this challenging process, Jin Hyuk eventually becomes a genuine doctor.

Korea’s top brain surgeon. With a 180 IQ, he was the youngest medical student ever at his school and graduated at the top of his class. He scored a perfect score in the medical license exam. At the age of 27, he became the youngest brain surgeon in the country. With a razor-sharp mind, cool nerves, rapid decision-making skills, and delicate hands that a surgeon needs, he has never failed once in an operation he has undertaken.
Kim Gyeong-tak (Actor: Kim Jae-joong)
Young-lae’s fiance. As the son of a concubine and royal minister Kim Byung-hee, Gyeong-tak works at the royal police bureau. He is an excellent swordsman and a man full of pride. He also has an extremely competitive spirit. He never loses to an opponent and is careful to never reveal any perceived weakness to others. But he does have a soft spot for one person. And that person is Young-lae. When Jin Hyuk suddenly appears, Gyeong-tak’s relationship with Young-lae abruptly changes. Young-lae gradually grows fond of Jin Hyuk and later on Gyeong-take finds out that his goodwill towards them has been repaid with a betrayal.

The most beautiful gisaeng in the entire kingdom. She has piercing eyes and can also see into the future with her mystical powers. Everything about her is a mystery. She is a talented dancer, musician and songstress. She knows how to manipulate men and no man has ever turned down her advances. But, at the same time, no man has ever loved her for the woman she is. The only man she has ever been taken with is Jin Hyuk but he does not wish to open his heart to her.
Yoo Mi-na (Actress: Park Min-yeong)
Jin-hyuk’s current girlfriend. She is working as a second year resident at a medical hospital. She has a sunny and outgoing personality while also possessing enormous compassion toward the poor. Jin-hyuk calls her by the nickname “Wook Mi-na” because of her quick temper. She grew up together with Jin-hyuk in the same home like brother and sister but they eventually started dating. After Jin-hyuk got into medical school, she also followed in his footsteps and became a medical student. She also wants to be a surgeon like him. One day, after having a big quarrel with Jin-hyuk, she is hit by a car right in front of him.
Miss Hong Young-lae (Actress: Park Min-young)
She is the daughter of a once wealthy noble family in the Joseon Kingdom in 1860. She looks like the twin sister of Mi-na but her personality is the exact opposite of her. She is lady-like, cautious, and very well-mannered. Her family arranged her to marry Kim Gyeong-tak but after she encounters Jin Hyuk, she changes her mind about following her parent’s wishes. As a woman living in an era where the female sex is oppressed and constrained by rigid social mores, she cannot dare to dream about making her own choices in life. When she realizes who she truly loves in her heart, she begins to dream about becoming a doctor.

v1olet's comment :
Cerita : Judulnya saja sudah Time Split Dr. Jin, time split ... jadi maksudnya time travel. Orang zaman sekarang terlempar ke masa lalu, 150-an tahun yg lalu, zaman Chosun. Sudah bisa membayangkan bagaimana rempongnya Pak Dokter yg ganteng ini kan? Untung waktu "terlempar" dia membawa tas dokternya sehingga masih bisa buka praktek di tempat dia terdampar. Dengan keahliannya dia membawa angin segar dalam dunia kedokteran saat itu seperti infus, penicilin, suntik, operasi, dll. Juga merubah sejarah Chosun sehubungan dengan raja dan pemerintahan. Wow banget deh ...
Cast : terus terang saya nonton drama ini karena Song Seung Heun seorang he he he ... walaupun teman-teman saya bilang SSH no aura, tapi menurut saya OK kok dia :) Yg juga bagus aktingnya adalah Kim Jae Joong yg jadi Kyung Tak. Ekspresi wajahnya sebagai double agent yg penuh dendam itu kelihatan sekali dan cocok.
Romance : ada ... cuma sedikit dan kurang menggebu. So jangan berharap banyak untuk adegan yg dag dig dug.
Ending : Happy
Ternyata hanya mimpi semalam yg panjaaaaaaang dan lamaaaaaaa. Gara-gara Jin Hyuk kebanyakan baca buku sejarah dan sangat berkesan hingga terbawa mimpi. Dan anehnya, Yoo Mi Na yg koma karena kecelakaan juga mimpi yg senada dan nyambung dengan mimpinya Jin Hyuk. Betul-betul soul-mate, mimpi aja bisa senada seirama he he he ...
