JTBC’s “Doctor Slump” has unveiled new stills ahead of the upcoming premiere!
“Doctor Slump” is a romantic comedy about two former rivals who reunite and unexpectedly become each other’s light during the darkest period of their lives. Park Hyung Sik will star as Yeo Jung Woo, a star plastic surgeon whose thriving career suddenly falls into danger due to a strange medical accident, while Park Shin Hye will play Nam Ha Neul, an anesthesiologist suffering from burnout syndrome.
Although Yeo Jung Woo had a smooth sailing life from his school days as the No. 1 student to his time as a star doctor, he is suddenly pushed to the edge of a cliff due to a mysterious medical malpractice accident.
In the newly released photo, Yeo Jung Woo draws attention with his gentle smile while wearing a doctor’s gown. As the head of a plastic surgery clinic, he is a flawless individual who captivates both the patients and staff as well as the general public with his handsome face, great manners, and exceptional skills.
Although one still depicts Yeo Jung Woo shining dazzlingly bright as he receives an award at an alumni gathering for his college, another photo portrays him being investigated by the police with a serious expression, making viewers wonder what caused his life to turn upside down.
On his reason for choosing “Doctor Slump.” Park Hyung Sik shared, “The topic of falling into a slump deeply resonated with me personally. I’m aware that many people experience burnout and fall into a slump while living fiercely in this fast-paced reality. I was also like that, and I think this is something anyone can experience once in their lives, so it also felt bitter. I thought that this is a project that viewers can relate to and feel comforted by telling the story in a refreshing yet profound manner.”
Park Hyung Sik further elaborated on his character, “He was born as the son of a successful doctor family, and he lived a life anyone would be jealous of after following an elite path to become a plastic surgeon. While facing an unexpected situation, he falls into the worst slump in his life for the first time. I thought it was important to properly portray Jung Woo gradually overcoming that slump through an optimistic mindset and the sincere support from people around him.”
“Doctor Slump” will premiere on January 27 at 10:30 p.m. KST. While waiting, watch a teaser for the drama here!
