Jo Jung Suk In Talks For “Reply” Series PD Shin Won Ho’s Upcoming Medical Drama
On May 29, a source from Jo Jung Suk’s agency said, “Jo Jung Suk is in the process of positively reviewing the casting offer for PD Shin Won Ho’s new tvN drama ‘Doctor Playbook’ (tentative title).”
“Doctor Playbook,” which is expected to air in the second half of the year as tvN’s Friday drama, will be directed by Shin Won Ho, the PD behind several hit dramas such as the “Reply” series and “Prison Playbook.” The drama will also be written by “Reply” series screenwriter Lee Woo Jung, who has worked with PD Shin Won Ho for a long time.
The upcoming drama tells a story about humanism. It will be set in a hospital and follows the desperate struggles of doctors, nurses, patients, and more. If he accepts the offer, Jo Jung Suk will take on the role of a doctor.
The drama has already gained much attention from the public after it was revealed that the drama may have three seasons. Because the same main lead will reportedly star in all three seasons, PD Shin Won Ho seems to have settled on choosing an actor who has already proven to have solid skills rather than discovering a new star or making an unexpected casting choice.
Jo Jung Suk has already taken on diverse characters through his roles in “The King 2 Hearts,” “Oh My Ghostess,” “Don’t Dare to Dream,” “Architecture 101,” “The Face Reader,” “Journalist,” “My Annoying Brother,” and more. Viewers are already curious to see what kind of project will result from Jo Jung Suk’s collaboration with PD Shin Won Ho and screenwriter Lee Woo Jung.
Currently, Jo Jung Suk is starring in SBS’s Friday-Saturday drama “Nokdu Flower.”
