Kim Byung Chul Is A Powerful Doctor In Upcoming Drama “Doctor Prisoner”
KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Doctor Prisoner” has released new stills!
“Doctor Prisoner” is a medical suspense drama about a brilliant surgeon who is driven out of his job at a large hospital and ends up becoming the medical director of a prison. Namgoong Min will take on the leading role of Dr. Nah Yi Jae, who aims to rid society of its evil individuals. Kim Byung Chul will play the “King of Prison” Sun Min Sik, a medical director at West Seoul Prison.
In the released stills, Kim Byung Chul commands the prison staff with his charismatic leadership skills. He proves his “King of Prison” nickname with his stern gaze and undisturbed attitude that leads the correctional officers with ease.
The fact that he’s able to pressure the correctional officers guarding a sickroom is testament to Sun Min Sik’s power. He is not a mere doctor—he holds the number one rank at the prison.
The production staff stated, “[Sun Min Sik] is a character who has built up his wealth and power by accommodating powerful ‘VIP’ prisoners, such as chaebol, politicians, and violators of economic crime.”
“Doctor Prisoner” is slated to premiere on March 20 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser here!
