The plot of Dr. Brain
Table of Contents
The series explores the depths of human psychology and what technology could achieve. Go Sewon is diagnosed with Autism when he’s a child. His mother raises him with much difficulty since it is financially and emotionally heavy on her.
Sewon’s first tragedy is when he witnesses his mother’s death in front of his eyes. Growing up, he remains anti-social but he succeeds in becoming a great scientist. He marries Jung Jaeyi and they have a son Doyon. Unfortunately, Doyon dies in a fire accident and Jaeyi goes into a coma from that shock. Sewon goes into studying Brainwave Synchronisation which allows him to gain access to a person’s memories.
At first, he believes that it works only with one living and one dead being. But it also seems possible when a person is in the comatose stage. He goes on to experiment with himself and his wife, who’s in a coma. When he gains some of her memories, he finds out that his son might be alive. Also, it’s revealed that Jaeyi was having an affair with Junki.
If you could tap into the brain of a dead person (or a cat, yes, a cat) in order to save a life, would you? That’s the premise behind “Dr. Brain,” the 1st original Korean series to make its debut on Apple TV+. My review of the series:
