On March 6, news outlet Ilgan Sports reported that Nam Joo Hyuk has been cast as the male lead of Netflix’s new original Korean drama “School Nurse Ahn Eun Young” (working title), according to an industry source.
Based on an award-winning novel of the same name by Jung Se Rang, “School Nurse Ahn Eun Young” is a fantasy drama about a bright and fearless school nurse who has the unique ability to drive away spirits, but performs exorcisms in a unconventional, comedic manner. When she takes on a new job at a high school, she uncovers a grave mystery.
It will be directed by Lee Kyung Mi, who headed films “The Truth Beneath” and “Crush and Blush.” Actress Jung Yu Mi has been confirmed for the lead role of Ahn Eun Young.
If confirmed, Nam Joo Hyuk will be starring as Hong In Pyo, a traditional Korean teacher who is extremely protective and walks with a pronounced limp due to a car accident he was in as a child. He is an influential figure who begins working at the school his grandfather set up. Nam Joo Hyuk has reportedly finished filming for JTBC’s currently airing drama “Radiant,” and will begin shooting “School Nurse Ahn Eun Young” soon.
