All kinds of characters have faced crime in OCN series. From coroners to simple detectives and from vampire prosecutors to superheroes. 'Doctor Frost' takes a slightly different approach and looks at the individuals, rather than the crime itself alone. While less exciting than similar shows in terms of suspense and lacking a strong gimmick, it offers that unique exploration of crime through a different lens. That of what aids and breaks people's minds.
The titular Doctor Frost (Song Chang-ee) was given his nickname due to the condition he developed after being in a car accident as a child. While he can understand emotions and "read" people, he cannot feel sympathy or experience those emotions himself. Working as a bartender by night and also aiding the police with investigations, he decides to take on an additional job as a professor of psychology. Joined by his cheerful and emotive assistant, Yoon Seong-ah (Jeong Eun-chae), they solve cases by looking at the individuals and their mental and behavioral problems.
