UEE and Kim Bum Join Rain in Medical K-drama Ghost Doctor

Upcoming medical K-drama Ghost Doctor is in the news today with first the report that UEE will be the female lead and the the news that Kim Bum is joining as the second male lead. Rain has been confirmed as the male lead for a few months now and looks like the production is indeed ready to start filming this summer now that it’s getting a full cast.
