Fans are asking for more of "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim" even after the SBS drama concluded on Jan. 16. In fact, Yoo Yeon Seok approved the idea of having a sequel for the medical series.

The Korean actor admitted many of their fans were suggesting for a second season of "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim." Yoo Yeon Seok revealed even the staff have thought about a follow-up of the drama.

"Suggestions of a season two came out near the end of our drama. The viewers were sad, and even the staff wondered, "What if there was a season two?" Yoo Yeon Seok said as per Soompi.

He went on, "I even thought another project with this cast and crew wouldn't be bad even if it's not another medical drama."

Yoo Yeon Seok was one of the principal cast members of "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim," alongside Han Suk Kyu and Seo Hyun Jin. The 32-year-old actor took the role Kang Dong Joo, who was trained by Han Suk Kyu's character to become a great doctor.

The "Reply 1994" star thought teamwork made it possible for the medical drama to become successful. He also commended the writers for making the viewers relate to what they were watching.

Aside from that, Yoo Yeon Seok considered "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim" as the turning point in his life after going through a slump in his acting career. The actor said he was to introduce himself to those who failed to acknowledge him in "Reply 1994."

"I think I was able to show people various sides of myself through my character. ["Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim"] delivered the message, "What do people live for?" and I was able to ask myself that same question," he added.

The recently ended drama maintained its viewership ratings until the production wrapped up. "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim" even surpassed the record of Park Shin Hye's medical drama "Doctors," Yibada cited.

Reports claimed the 20-episode "Doctors" recorded 23.1 percent as its highest viewership rating, while "Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim" have crossed the 30 percent mark even before the finale.

"Our drama received a lot of love. I knew it would be a meaningful drama, but I did not expect it to receive this much love," Yoo Yeon Seok shared.
