Ji Sung And Lee Se Young Share A Nerve-Racking 1st Meeting In Upcoming Medical Drama
SBS’s “Doctor John” has shared an exciting glimpse of the chemistry between its two leads!
“Doctor John” is an upcoming medical drama about doctors specializing in pain management. In a refreshing take on the genre, “Doctor John” will portray the doctors’ search for the cause of their patients’ mysterious pain as a thrilling chase, almost like a detective hunting down the perpetrator behind an unsolved crime.
Ji Sung will star in the drama as Cha Yo Han, a genius anesthesiologist who goes by the nickname “Doctor 10 Seconds”—a reference to his impressive ability to assess his patients in the 10 seconds that it takes for them to enter his examination room and walk to their seat. Lee Se Young will star as Kang Si Young, a highly intelligent anesthesiology resident who was born into a family of doctors.
On July 5, “Doctor John” unveiled a sneak peek of Cha Yo Han and Kang Si Young’s tense first encounter. The two characters end up meeting during an unexpected medical emergency at a prison, when Cha Yo Han rushes to Kang Si Young’s aid as she attempts to save a patient’s life.
The newly released photos show a nervous Kang Si Young gazing curiously at the calm, perfectly composed Cha Yo Han, who seems to be taking the lead as he instructs and works together with the younger, less experienced doctor. Notably, however, Cha Yo Han is wearing a prison uniform in the photos, piquing viewers’ curiosity as to how the doctor ended up in prison.
The producers of “Doctor John” remarked, “Ji Sung, who is playing ‘Doctor 10 Seconds’ Cha Yo Han, and Lee Se Young, who is playing Kang Si Young, have an explosive ‘healing chemistry.’ The two stars, who have been giving their acting everything they’ve got, have been setting a stellar example for everyone on set.”
They added, “Please look forward to what will unfold in ‘Doctor John’ after the unpredictable meeting between anesthesiologist Cha Yo Han and anesthesiology resident Kang Si Young.”
“Doctor John” premieres on July 19 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki. In the meantime, check out a teaser for the drama below!
