Park Hyung Sik And Park Shin Hye Confirmed To Reunite For New Drama + Yoon Bak And Gong Sung Ha Also Join Cast



Park Hyung Sik, Park Shin Hye, Yoon Bak, and Gong Sung Ha have been confirmed for JTBC’s upcoming drama “Doctor Slump” (literal title)!


“Doctor Slump” is a romantic comedy that follows the story of Yeo Jung Woo (Park Hyung Sik) and Nam Ha Neul (Park Shin Hye) as they try to resuscitate their lives when they fall into a slump after only having followed successful paths. The two rivals who hate each other will reunite in the darkest period of their lives and become each other’s light, delivering smiles, excitement, and heartwarming comfort along the way. The two who will spend both their brightest and lowest times together raise anticipation for how they will depict their search for happiness.


“Doctor Slump” will also mark the reunion between Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye in a drama for the first time in 10 years since their hit project “Heirs.” The drama will also be helmed by director Oh Hyun Jong of “Find Me in Your Memory” and “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” and written by scriptwriter Baek Sun Wo of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.”


Park Hyung Sik will play the role of Yeo Jung Woo, a star plastic surgeon who falls into the greatest slump in his life. Having been the top student of his entire school, Yeo Jung Woo attended the best medical school, and he bcame a star doctor with great skills and outstanding character. However, he gets pushed to the edge following a mysterious medical accident.


Regarding his upcoming role, Park Hyung Sik shared, “I am both nervous and excited because it’s my first rom-com in a while. I’m glad and excited to meet actress Park Shin Hye after a long time and to work together again.” The actor asked viewers to support the drama, promising to deliver a story that will bring smiles and touching feelings.


Park Shin Hye will play anesthesiologist Nam Ha Neul who is experiencing burnout syndrome. Having been called a genius since a young age, she lived her life immersed in her studies. Even as an adult, she is a workaholic doctor, living a life without fun and without knowing how to do anything except study and work. However, she suddenly resolves to change one day while looking back on her broken life.


On her upcoming role, the actress shared, “Anyone can fall into a slump in their lives. I tend to think a lot about how to wisely overcome that moment and to live in good health, so I related to the figure of Nam Ha Neul. I felt a sense of familiarity with the situation she faced, so I was more attracted to her. I will work hard to film so that I can deliver comfort to the many people who have become tired in life.”


Yoon Bak will play plastic surgeon Bin Dae Young who is both pretentious and pitiful. He has a one-sided sense of rivalry with the successful Yeo Jung Woo, who attended the same college as him, but he is also a figure who understands Yeo Jung Woo better than anyone else. Although he is arrogant and has a strong sense of pride, you can’t bring yourself to hate him as he shows both his sincere yet slick personality. Yoon Bak shared that he was highly anticipating the project after meeting such a great director and cast. He elaborated, “I will prepare well in order to make an enjoyable drama. I hope we can wrap up [the project] successfully without any big incidents until the end.”


Gong Sung Ha, who recently impressed with “Through the Darkness,” will play Nam Ha Neul’s best friend and OB/GYN (obstetrics and gynecology) anesthesiologist Lee Hong Ran who has been with Nam Ha Neul from her college days to her residency days. She becomes strangely intertwined with Bin Dae Young, who is similar to her despite the obvious differences. Gong Sung Ha shared, “I am grateful to have been given the role of Lee Hong Ran, and I also feel a sense of responsibility. With this character’s bright energy, I want to put in all my heart to make a great project with precious people. Please anticipate Gong Sung Ha’s Lee Hong Ran.”

kinda weird seeing PHS romantically with PSH. I think I will cringe seeing them puck lips.  Nevertheless this will be good hopefully 

Kinda worried for this too. Since she is famous for her dead fish kiss style, deer caught in the headlight, whatever they call 🤣


But but but, please a good slow burn romance! I'm getting tired of instant romance with overload skinships scenes.

Agree with you here. And PSH has always been a bad on screen kisser too… hahaha.. gee… I think it has a lot to do with K-culture and how they don’t date openly to “feed” the shipping community. So once they do and are “off the market” - and in this case she’s married - there is no “ship” to be had and so it just all ends up being “weird”. It’s a cycle and culture they create for themselves. But I am nevertheless a fan of PHS and would like to see how this drama turns out for him.

I watched it for the Im Siwan moment. LOL!! 


But yeah, he has lost weight! I guess when you're the top student in medical school, you probably don't have time to eat. :idk:
