I’m going to assume the character connections for now otherwise this casting comes across as wholly awkward. CNBLUE member and actor Kang Min Hyuk has signed on to climb aboard the upcoming MBC summer drama Hospital Ship, which sets sail in late August and currently only has the female lead confirmed. This will be Ha Ji Won‘s first drama since the very ill-fated K-version of hit Taiwan drama In Time With You called The Time We Were Not in Love. It’s probably for the best she’s picking not a rom-com drama for her next role, and a step in the right direction to play a doctor and try something new. Not surprising but Kang Min Hyuk’s character is also a doctor, described as a warm and caring type. I don’t know if he’s taking the role earlier offer to Choi Jin Hyuk who passed, I see Kang Min Hyuk as playing the junior doctor with a puppy dog crush on Ha Ji Won, but if he is then this will be interesting in a potentially mismatched way.
