Synopsis: Si-on Park suffers from autism and other health issues. Despite his mental age being the equivalent of only 10 years old, he also has a savant syndrome, not only the source of his exceptional abilities in the medical field but also the gateway to a career as a pediatric surgeon. Since his early childhood, Si-on has wished to become a doctor. Witness to his extraordinary abilities, Hospital Director Choi Wu-seok tries everything to have him among his staff. With the Hospital’s Board of Administration being against Si-on becoming resident, Choi bets his position on a 6-month trial period during which the unusual doctor will have to prove he is up to the task. Constantly criticized by fellow surgeon Kim Do-han (Joo Sang-wook), Si-on’s challenges become even greater when he falls in love with his mentor, surgeon Cha Yoon-seo (Moon Chae-won). Good Doctor was the second Korean drama to be picked up for a U.S. remake, for CBS.
