Watch: Kim Min Jae, Kim Hyang Gi, And More Reflect On “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist,” Rave About Cast’s Chemistry, And Share Excitement For Season 2
The cast of “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” has temporarily bid farewell to the drama before returning with Season 2!
Based on the novel of the same name, tvN’s “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” tells the story of Yoo Se Poong (Kim Min Jae), a well-known internal medicine doctor who gets expelled from the royal court after getting caught up in a conspiracy. When he meets Seo Eun Woo (Kim Hyang Gi) and Gye Ji Han (Kim Sang Kyung) in the strange and beautiful village of Gyesu, he works to become a true doctor who heals the heart.
Following the Season 1 finale that aired on September 6, “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” shared a making video from their final filming day featuring the cast’s closing comments. After the last filming, Kim Min Jae brightly shares, “I feel…the same as usual! Why? Because we have Season 2! Because we will film Season 2 in a week.” He adds, “I think we’ve always felt like a big family. Very warm, loud, and fun memories [from set] will remain deeply. I’m hoping that many, many more of those images will appear in Season 2.”
Kim Hyang Gi shares similar feelings of excitement for Season 2 as Kim Min Jae and explains, “I think it’s important to conclude well until the very end.” Regarding her co-stars, Kim Hyang Gi comments, “I really, really love our Gyesu clinic family members. I think that lovable chemistry became a big strength for our drama. My Gyesu clinic family, thank you so much.” Kim Hyang Gi adds that Season 2 will offer a new atmosphere and shares, “I think you’ll be able to see a little more about what happens in the palace. I think I’ll be able to show a new image so I’m also looking forward to it!”
Kim Sang Kyung explains that he feels lighthearted now that they’ve wrapped up Season 1 well and praises his co-stars, saying, “Our members are quite unusual. Our ages and genders are all different but we get along well. Seeing how we always stay together to chat instead of scattering when we’re resting from filming, we’ve said that we think we have a really great relationship.”
Ahn Chang Hwan commented, “I was sincerely happy. I really felt like I had become family with the actors and I feel lighthearted. Now, I plan to diligently prepare again for Season 2.” Just like his co-stars, Ahn Chang Hwan shared that the cast’s chemistry was so good and added, “It’s not easy to be able to rely on one another but just being able to be on set together made me happy.”
Jeon Gook Hyang explained that she felt both sad and relieved now that filming was over while Yeon Bo Ra revealed she bawled while reading their last script. Yeon Bo Ra shared, “It felt like Se Poong, Eun Woo, and Gye Ji Han were saying the words I really wanted to hear in that moment so I received a lot of healing while reading the script. I was hoping that viewers would also be able to feel that too.”
Kim Soo Ahn shared the same enthusiasm as her co-stars about their chemistry as she commented, “To the point where my mouth hurts [from smiling], it was the best. If I did something, they played along with all of it. While watching, I’m sure there were a lot of lines that made viewers confused as to whether it was a line or an improvisation. Among that, I predict that nine out of 10 of those were improvisations.”
Han Chang Min excitedly reflected on acting in his first-ever historical drama and explained that he had so much fun on set while learning lots from his senior actors. After, Yoo Sung Joo, Oh Kyung Joo, and Jung Won Chang thank viewers for tuning in and ask them for their continued love on Season 2!
