I like everything so far about upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama Yongpal (Yongpalyi), other than leading man Joo Won. But I don’t hate him, plus his styling in this drama is the best I’ve seen from him, so perhaps his turn as the rogue doctor channeling Healer is just the performance to flip the switch for me. The drama continues with a slew of great promotional material, producing an eye-catching second poster that is as interesting as the first one where Kim Tae Hee and Joo Won’s face silhouettes are formed by lettering.
The second poster amps up the divide between a rich heiress stuck in a coma and a poor doctor risking death to earn more money, with the dawning backdrop of the city forming the dividing barrier. The production also released the first stills of second female lead Chae Jung Ahn, who will be married to second male lead Jo Hyun Jae in the drama. He’s playing a baddie but it’s unclear whether she’s be his willing or unwitting helper. Either way she’s grown on me as a supporting actress since Prime Minister and I so whatever her character is up to it’ll certainly fun watching.
