Watch: Kim Min Jae, Kim Hyang Gi, And Kim Sang Kyung Are Reminded Of Their Dreadful Pasts In Optimistic “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” Teasers
Based off a novel of the same name, tvN’s “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” depicts the story of Yoo Se Poong (Kim Min Jae), a well-known internal medicine doctor who gets expelled from the royal court after being caught up in a conspiracy. Afterwards, he meets Seo Eun Woo (Kim Hyang Gi) and Gye Ji Han (Kim Sang Kyung) in the strange and beautiful Gyesu village and works to become a true doctor who heals the heart.
The newly released individual teasers showcase the secret and unpredictable pasts of each character and how they work to overcome all hurt in their hearts.
Kim Min Jae’s teaser starts with him in a nerve-wracking acupuncture session. While he prepares to insert a needle into his patient, he starts to sweat and quiver as nasty comments run through his mind, such as, “He killed the king” and “Who else are you going to kill with acupuncture?”
What wakes him is Gye Ji Han loudly calling out for him while Seo Eun Woo adds with a soft smile, “We have to go visit our patient, doctor.”
Although Seo Eun Woo is full of dreams and curiosity, her past was also not an easy one. After suddenly becoming a wife and even more suddenly becoming a widow, Seo Eun Woo falls in danger of involuntarily becoming a wife who stays virtuous to her deceased husband. To make matters worse, those around her gossip, assuming she killed her husband and wishing bad fortune onto her.
Seo Eun Woo endures all this pain alone, but then determinedly blows out the wavering candle in front of her. In that moment, she wakes up to Gye Ji Han and Yoo Se Poong.
The teaser for Gye Ji Han begins with him in a drunken state with an empty gaze. As he continues to empty his cup, voices float around him calling out, “He abandoned his teacher and ran away,” “Cowardly man,” and “They say he even ran away from the palace infirmary.”
The dark atmosphere changes in an instant as a wad of coins falls into Gye Ji Han’s hands and the money-hungry man exclaims with a loud laugh, “We will treat you with advanced care. With the highest level of luxury.”
“Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” premieres on August 1 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Check out another teaser here!
