Park Shin Hye, Park Hyung Sik, And More Showcase Perfect Chemistry At Script Reading For Upcoming Rom-Com

Upcoming JTBC drama “Doctor Slump” is gearing up for its premiere!

“Doctor Slump” is a romantic comedy that follows the story of Yeo Jung Woo (Park Hyung Sik) and Nam Ha Neul (Park Shin Hye) as they try to resuscitate their lives when they fall into a slump after only having followed successful paths. The two rivals who hate each other will reunite in the darkest period of their lives and become each other’s light, delivering smiles, excitement, and heartwarming comfort along the way.

“Doctor Slump” also marks the reunion between Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye in a drama for the first time in 10 years since their hit project “Heirs.” The drama will be helmed by director Oh Hyun Jong of “Find Me in Your Memory” and “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” and written by scriptwriter Baek Sun Woo of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.”

Along with director Oh Hyun Jong and scriptwriter Baek Sun Woo, actors Park Hyung Sik, Park Shin Hye, Yoon Bak, Jang Hye Jin, Hyun Bong Sik, Yoon Sang Hyun, Oh Dong Min, Park Won Ho, Kang Sang Joon, Jung Ji Soon, and more were present.

Already, Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye showcased fantastic chemistry at their reunion. Park Hyung Sik plays Yeo Jung Woo, a star plastic surgeon who falls into the greatest slump of his life. Having been the top student of his entire school, Yeo Jung Woo attended the best medical school, and he became a star doctor with great skills and outstanding character. However, he gets pushed to the edge following a mysterious medical accident. Park Hyung Shik captivated with his portrayal of his character’s wide berth of emotions at the script reading.

Park Shin Hye stars as anesthesiologist Nam Ha Neul who is experiencing burnout syndrome. Having been called a genius since a young age, she lived her life immersed in her studies. Even as an adult, she is a workaholic doctor, living a life without fun and without knowing how to do anything except study and work. However, she suddenly resolves to change one day while looking back on her broken life. Park Shin Hye captivated with her passionate acting and realistic portrayal.

Yoon Bak will take on the role of the pretentious plastic surgeon Bin Dae Young. He has a one-sided sense of rivalry with the successful Yeo Jung Woo, who attended the same college as him, but he is also a figure who understands Yeo Jung Woo better than anyone else. Yoon Bak impressed by showcasing diverse acting that highlighted Bin Dae Young’s sincere yet slick personality.

Gong Sung Ha will play Nam Ha Neul’s best friend and anesthesiologist Lee Hong Ran who has been with Nam Ha Neul from her college days to her residency days. She becomes strangely intertwined with Bin Dae Young, who is similar to her despite the obvious differences. Gong Sung Ha was greatly in sync with her energetic character Lee Hong Ran.

Furthermore, talented actors Jang Hye Jin, Hyun Bong Sik, and Yoon Sang Hyun will play members of Nam Ha Neul’s family. Jang Hye Jin plays Nam Ha Neul’s mother Gong Wol Sun, while Hyun Bong Sik plays Nam Ha Neul’s uncle Gong Tae Sun. Yoon Sang Hyun will take on the role of Nam Ha Neul’s younger brother Nam Ba Da.

In addition to the three, there is Oh Dong Min as Min Kyung Min, who is intertwined with both Yeo Jung Woo and Nam Ha Neul. Yeo Jung Woo’s two friends will be portrayed by Park Won Ho, who plays Kim Mu Geun, and Kang Sang Joon, who plays Son Chan Young. Jung Ji Soon will play the role of a homeroom teacher.

The production team shared, “[The story of] the resuscitation of happiness by Yeo Jung Woo and Nam Ha Neul, who spent their most dazzling and most miserable moments together, and the romance that blooms within will deliver refreshing and heart-fluttering excitement as well as relatable warmth,” asking viewers to anticipate Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye’s reunion as well as the passionate acting from the cast.

“Doctor Slump” will premiere on January 27. Stay tuned!
