Success feels sweeter when it goes to someone truly deserving. The entire cast of tvN Thursday drama Hospital Playlist (Wise Doctor Life) has been INCREDIBLE, seriously I am only two episodes in as I want to savor this gem and love every bit of it. Now K-ent is reporting that male lead Jo Jung Seok took a nearly 30% pay cut from his usual drama rate in order to do this drama because he wanted to work with PD Shin Won Ho and he loved the script. The production didn’t have the budget to afford Jo Jung Seok but he lowered his salary for them and the end result is win-win for both, and win for the audiences. Love this story and a rare one of a top star being thoughtful and generous with his talent.
