A representative of the drama said in a statement, “We decided to change the title to ‘Good Doctor’ because it was pointed out that ‘Green Scalpel’ was too difficult of a title.”
The title change will hopefully better suit the drama about a doctor with autistic tendencies trying to do his best as a pediatric surgeon. With actors such as Moon Chae Won, Joo Won, and Joo Sang Ok cast in the leading roles, the drama had already caught the intertest of the public. The drama began filming on June 13.
“Good Doctor” will succeed the current drama “Shark” and air in August.
