Donning the role of a mob boss who has been severely injured, actor Lee Ki-woo will butt heads with his female doctor Hye Jung (played by Park Shin-hye), who he isn’t happy with, in the very first episode of SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama, “Doctors.”
Ki-woo will send his men in search of a male doctor but Jung will manage the situation and get on with his surgery.
According to a report, this will not be Lee Ki-woo’s only appearance in the drama; he will be a key character in it. “He’s a character who opens the drama, and is a patient that will become a point of discussion in the development of the drama, so we wanted to cast a good actor for the part. Director Oh Choong-hwan remembered an actor from tvN that had left an impression with his acting, so the director personally sought [Lee Ki-woo] out to offer the part, which he took after several approaches,” Soompi quoted a member of the production staff as saying.
Actor Lee Joon-hyuk will also be making an appearance alongside Lee Ki-woo as a member of the mob, the report said. The first episode of “Doctors” airs at 10 pm KST.
