Actress Jung Ryeo-won has been cast in a new medical drama starring actor Kwone Sang-woo.
Jung will play the main female character in the show titled “Medical Top Team” (translated title), an official with her agency Keyeast announced through press release on Thursday.
Jung is set to take on the role of a charismatic and ambitious thoracic surgeon, her first time taking part in a medical drama and playing a doctor.
“I felt I could learn much from how she always does her hardest to become the best and overcomes various crises wisely,” Jung was quoted as saying of her reason for deciding to take the role.
Kwone will play the drama’s male lead, a medical surgeon who speaks and acts in a straightforward manner but kindly helps those in need.
Directed by director Kim Do-hoon of Kim Soo-hyun’s historical drama “Moon Embracing the Sun” and written by writer Yoon Kyung-ah of Shin Ha-kyun’s medical drama “Brain,” “Medical Top Team” will show how a medical dream team comes together while reflecting on the reality of the medical industry.
The drama is set to show every Wednesdays and Thursdays on major broadcasting channel MBC starting in October after “Two Weeks” (translated title) ends its run.
