Joo Won's acting was great in the first two episodes. It must have been hard for him to act like that since it's his character >.> Plus, gotta praise that child actor who acted Joo Won's younger self. He reminded me of Min Guk's younger brother in DWAYG.

It's the writing and the acting. Joo Won is brilliant. The screenwriter is also brilliant, especially the dialogue. Just look at this poetry: 

“It’s because of my bunny and my brother. The day that the tree smelled like ice-cream, my bunny went to heaven in front of my eyes. The day the railroad tracks smelled like rusting irons my brother went to heaven in front of my eyes.” These lines delivered by brilliant actor Joo Won, playing an autistic savant doctor, promise award-winning writing and performances both, from premiering Korean drama Good Doctor.   Quoted from F&B
