K-actor Namgong Min‘s last drama The Undateables may have been neigh unwatchable but to err on the side of caution it’s promising that he’s leaving the rom-com genre behind for possibly donning prison scrubs. And that’s a double pun as he’s wearing prison outfit and medical scrubs as the titular Dr. Prisoner airing in early 2019 on KBS. Namgong Min has been offered the male lead, a top medical hospital surgeon doctor who is thwarted by an unreasonable hospital director and ends up losing his license after a medical mishap. Later he gets an internist license and asks for a transfer to a prison medical ward that houses the most high profile prisoners in South Korea. The drama is from the PD of Laurel Tree Tailors and sounds right up Namgong Min’s alley.
