Watch: Lee Seo Jin Struggles To Set Up A Medical Clinic With The Help Of Ra Mi Ran, Cha Chung Hwa, Kim Kwang Gyu, And More
TVING’s upcoming drama “Internal Medicine Director Park” (literal translation) has released its main teaser!
“Internal Medicine Director Park” is a medical comedy drama about the “funny and sad” life of a doctor. Lee Seo Jin stars as Director Park, who dreamed of becoming a doctor but now agonizes between the art of medicine and his business skills in a clinic with barely any patients.
The teaser begins with Director Park asking desperately, “Do hospitals have beginner’s luck too? If I open a hospital, patients will stand in line, right?” He reveals that he dreamed of becoming a doctor after seeing the cool doctors on TV, and after years and years of hard work, finally became a doctor. But the reality of opening his own clinic is that he gave no treatments in the morning and has no appointments in the afternoon. In order to cut costs, he tells nurse Cha Mi Young (Cha Chung Hwa) to limit the mix coffees to one per day and tapes up the hot water tap on the water dispenser.
Ra Mi Ran shows her comedic chops as Sa Mo Rim, Director Park’s wife. She is a bright and lovable character who trusts the doctors on TV more than she does her husband. She says, “I’ve got to go out for a bit,” when her husband comes home, calling him “oppa” cutely, and he whispers, “When the kids are asleep, can I join you outside?” and the two exchange sneaky winks.
At his endangered clinic, Director Park also has an eclectic cast of colleagues. After seeing his new nurse Cha Ji Hoon (Seo Bum June) with his head nurse, Cha Mi Young, he jokes, “It’s almost like you’re mother and son.” It is revealed that they are actually mother and son and are keeping it a secret from the director. Director Park also has several adventures with his friends and colleagues, such as director of proctological surgery Sun Woo Soo Ji (Shin Eun Jung), director of obstetrics and gynecology Ji Min Ji (Kim Kwang Gyu), and director of urology Choi Hyung Suk (Jung Hyung Suk).
After hearing that there are a lot of malicious comments on Director Park’s clinic, Ji Min Ji says serenely, “I am never bothered when I’m cursed out.” Director Park then curses him out and Ji Min Ji throws down his coffee cup and leaps at him for a fight. Meanwhile, Sa Mo Rim requests her husband take off his wig when he’s at home and he refuses.
“Internal Medicine Director Park” premieres on January 14. Check out the trailer below!
