Uhm Jung Hwa, Kim Byung Chul, Myung Se Bin, And Min Woo Hyuk Confirmed For Upcoming Medical Comedy Drama

JTBC’s upcoming medical comedy drama has confirmed its lead cast and premiere date!

JTBC’s new weekend drama “Doctor Cha Jung Sook” (literal title) draws out the “ripped life stitches” of Cha Jung Sook, who has gone from a housewife of 20 years to a first year medical resident. The drama will showcase a funny and relatable story through Cha Jung Sook, whose life is uprooted by an unexpected scandal. Leading the cast is Uhm Jung Hwa, Kim Byung Chul, Myung Se Bin, and Min Woo Hyuk.

Uhm Jung Hwa stars as Cha Jung Sook, a regular housewife who ends up getting back on her path as a doctor after 20 years. After surviving an unexpected crisis, Cha Jung Sook reaches a turning point in her life where she decides to take on medical school once again, after giving up her career for her family.

The actress commented, “I’m happy to have met a drama that has warm comfort and growth. I want to do my best to shine light on this drama’s story. I really wanted to do [this drama] because I really liked the story of achieving one’s dreams regardless of age and circumstance. As our teamwork was so great, this was such a happy filming.”

Kim Byung Chul will portray Cha Jung Sook’s fastidious and sensitive husband Seo In Ho, who is the chief surgeon at a university hospital. Although he’s a perfectionist who does not ever lose his dignity or composure, Seo In Ho also hides an unbelievably shocking secret. Around the time he starts to forget how grateful he is to his wife for choosing their family over her career, Seo In Ho faces the crisis of a lifetime when Cha Jung Sook returns from her liver transplant surgery as a new woman and wants to become a medical resident.

As Seo In Ho, Kim Byung Chul will showcase his ability to meticulously portray a dangerous double life, and his chemistry with Uhm Jung Hwa will serve to be one of the drama’s key points. Kim Byung Chul shared, “I’m delighted to have met a fun script and such great colleagues. I ask for lots of interest.”

Family medicine professor and Seo In Ho’s first love Choi Seung Hee will be played by Myung Se Bin. As the privileged daughter of a medical conglomerate who owns 12 general hospitals across the country, Choi Seung Hee has never experienced hardship. However, after Cha Jung Sook steals her first love, Choi Seung Hee starts to wish for a regular life. As a professor of family medicine, Choi Seung Hee is thrown another curveball when she unexpectedly encounters resident Cha Jung Sook again at the hospital.

Myung Se Bin remarked, “There was an anticipation and nervousness that I would be able to show you an image that is different from my previous works through the character of Choi Seung Hee. That’s why I researched and pondered that much more. I was happy to be able to work with such great actors and a great director.”

In his first drama in three years, Min Woo Hyuk will play Roy Kim, a surgeon who believes in free love. With his sweet and sexy charms, Roy Kim is a magical man who can make anybody fall for him. But while he is loved by everyone, Roy Kim does not sincerely give love back to anyone else, until he becomes oddly intrigued by Cha Jung Sook.

Roy Kim shared, “‘Doctor Cha Jung Sook’ is a project I’ve prepared cheerfully. I hope enjoyment is conveyed to viewers. I ask for lots of love in the future.”

JTBC’s upcoming drama “Doctor Cha Jung Sook” is set to premiere on April 15 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
