Jo Bo Ah Takes On Her 1st Ever Doctor Role In “Forest”
Jo Bo Ah gave viewers a glimpse of her transformation into a doctor!
On January 15, KBS 2TV’s “Forest” released its first stills of Jo Bo Ah as skillful doctor Jung Young Jae.
This upcoming drama is about a man who has everything but a heart, and a woman who has lost everything but her heart. It follows their love story after meeting in a mysterious forest as they uncover the secret behind the forest and themselves.
Jo Bo Ah will appear as a surgeon named Jung Young Jae who has a refreshing personality and seeks justice. She is enthusiastic about everything in life and gets involved in other people’s business. She suffers from sudden memories from her childhood trauma, adding joy and sorrow to the drama.
In the stills, Jung Young Jae tries to dance away the nerves before surgery. While changing into her scrubs, she dances to the music and turns the hallway into her own stage. After tying her hair up, she becomes a serious surgeon in front of a patient.
This scene was filmed inside of a hospital in Gangnam. Jo Bo Ah filled the set with bright energy and excitement as she stepped onto the set for her first day of filming. She continued to smile during rehearsals and expertly portrayed her character once cameras began rolling.
Jo Bo Ah said, “I came to set with expectations and excitement, and it was so much fun because there was endless laughter. One of my dreams when I was young was becoming a doctor, so I feel really excited that I get to portray a doctor. Jung Young Jae is a really bright character but also someone who has a lot of pain. Please give lots of love to ‘Forest’ and to Jung Young Jae who will grow as the story continues.”
A source from the drama added, “Jo Bo Ah perfectly portrayed Jung Young Jae from the first day of filming and satisfied 200 percent of the staff’s expectations.
