This is fantastic and reassuring drama casting news for me – rising acting talent Yoon Kyun Sang and Lee Sung Kyung are confirmed for upcoming SBS drama Doctors (formerly called Female Gangster Hye Jung). They will join leads Kim Rae Won and Park Shin Hye in a story centered around the neurosurgery department of a top Seoul hospital. This casting will reunite Yoon Kyun Sang with Park Shin Hye after they did Pinoochio together for SBS, which was the drama that put tall strapping Yoon Kyun Sang on the map and led to him doing another SBS drama in The Time I Loved You and now his third in a row with the network with Doctors. Lee Sung Kyung also broke out working with the network on SBS drama It’s Okay, It’s Love, and most recently create lots of buzz with her interesting acting performance in much talked about tvN drama Cheese in the Trap. Casting is now complete for Doctors and filming will soon be underway as everyone gets fitted for their white coats and scrubs.
In addition to leads Park Shin Hye, Kim Rae Won, Yoon Kyun Sang, and Lee Sung Kyung, additional Doctors cast member include Ji Soo, Kim Min Suk who got on the radar thanks to Descendants of the Sun, veteran Kim Young Ae, and Moon Ji In. Doctors premieres on June 20th on SBS Mon-Tues following Jackpot (The Royal Gambler).
