An exciting new drama is coming to tvN!
“Doctor Playbook” (working title) is a medical drama that tells the everyday stories of doctors and patients in a hospital. Director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung, who previously worked together on “Reply 1997,” “Reply 1994,” “Reply 1988,” and “Prison Playbook,” will be reuniting for this drama.
Actors including Jo Jung Suk, Kim Dae Myung, Jung Kyung Ho, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jeon Mi Do, Kim Hae Sook, Jung Moon Sung, Moon Tae Yu, Shin Hyun Bin, Kim Jun Han, Choi Young Joon, Ahn Eun Jin, Ha Yun Kyung, Kim Hye In, Cho Yi Hyun, Bae Hyun Sung, Kim Soo Jin, and Choi Young Woo recently attended the first script reading session for the upcoming drama.
Jo Jung Suk, Kim Dae Myung, Jung Kyung Ho, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Jeon Mi Do showed perfect chemistry as long-time friends who met when they were at medical school. Their experience shined as they impressed with their detailed acting.
The talented supporting actors also immersed immediately into their characters, increasing the tension and fun of the script reading session.
Director Shin Won Ho commented, “If you watch the dramas I have done until now, the hospital setting has been used particularly often. I thought it might be because the key moments of life all take place at a hospital. ‘Doctor Playbook’ is a project I started while thinking about telling the stories of people who live through an atmosphere filled with birth, old age, sickness, and death.”
He continued, “It is not a drama that is incredibly thrilling or has a dramatic plot. As I have always done, I filled it with ordinary and everyday stories. I gathered actors who can show the strength of ordinary, trivial, and everyday stories. I will work to create a project with a high level of perfection especially as I am working with these actors.”
“Doctor Playbook” is scheduled to premiere in 2020.
