Park Shin Hye , Lee Sung-Kyung up for new SBS drama Doctors
Girlfriday at Dramabeans
Baek In-ha, as a doctor? A neurosurgeon at that? I can’t be the only one having a total brain malfunction every time I try to picture this, right? SBS has a new Monday-Tuesday drama in the works called Doctors, which is about — you guessed it — doctors. The drama was originally called Female Gangster Hye-jung, after the prickly heroine, but decided for some reason to go with the most generic title on Earth, so Doctors it is. Offers are currently out to Park Shin-hye (Pinocchio) and Lee Sung-kyung (Cheese in the Trap) to star.
The new series comes from writer Ha Myung-hee, of High Society, Warm Words, and Can We Get Married. Park Shin-hye has reportedly been considering the project for some time, but is still unconfirmed.
She’s being courted to headline as a neurosurgery fellow with obstinate follow-through. She’s smart and active and bold, but her outgoing personality develops a dark inner side when she faces some turmoil in her life. She doesn’t share her inner feelings and doesn’t trust other people, to the point that she wants no relationships of any kind with others.
Model-turned-actress Lee Sung-kyung is up for the role of the heroine’s main rival, a former high school classmate who’s also a neurosurgery fellow. She was born with everything — good looks, money, a prestigious doctor family. She wants for nothing in life and even has a bright, cheerful personality and a strong sense of justice, and is loved by everyone around her. But when the person she loves is stolen from her, she goes evil. Does she also go crazy?
The drama centers around the incorrigible heroine who starts out a gangster (metaphorically, I think) and eventually learns to become a good doctor. It’s about the unfair social hierarchy present in the medical field and promises realism in its approach.
I dunno, your casting director might need a helping hand with that so-called realism. Just sayin’.
Doctors is slated to follow Jackpot (after Six Flying Dragons) on Mondays and Tuesdays in June.

Have not seen any of this writer's work. Based on the ratings of dramas penned by her and reviews........causes me grave concerns.
A good plot can go down the drain and a mediocre rise to great heights in the hands of the writer. The fact that the script won an award in 2010 is the silver lining for me.
A good director with an award winning script surely is something that cannot be ignored......
On a personal level .....do hope it augurs well specially since I have been waiting to see Shinhye in a drama for over a year......her character in the drama shows lot of promise and something challenging that she has not done before...
Hope that whatever Shinhye does decide.......turns out to be a good decision for her as an actress
Park Shin Hye still considering thug-to-doctor role in new drama + Lee Sung Kyung may play her rival
Park Shin Hye may be making her small screen comeback through a new SBS drama! Previously, she was in talks to join medical drama 'Female Thug Hye Jung,' but looks like they've changed the title since.
Her agency relayed on Wednesday, "Park Shin Hye has been offered a role for 'Doctors' and she is currently considering the role. We're not in a position as of yet to say that she has been confirmed [for the role]."
The role Park Shin Hye was offered is a character named Hye Jung, who makes a drastic life change when she goes from being a street thug to a neurologist.
If Park Shin Hye is confirmed for this role, then she may be playing opposite Lee Sung Kyung, who has been given the offer to play Hye Jung's rival character. In the drama, the two will be the alumna of the same high school and fellows in a neurology clinic
The drama is set to air this coming June after 'Daebak' so keep an eye out for it to see if you'll get to watch Park Shin Hye act both a street smart thug and a book smart doctor, and catch possibly even Lee Sung Kyung take on the role of a neurologist!
DOCTORS: PARK SHIN HYE TO PLAY A GANGSTER TURNED NEUROSURGEON
Park Shin Hye plans a comeback into dramas by accepting the offer of playing the role of a neurosurgeon in an SBS medical drama titled Doctors.
Lee Sung Kyung
Park Shin Hye would be playing the role of a gangster turned neurosurgeon in an upcoming SBS medical drama titled Doctors. The talented actress would be acting opposite ‘Cheese In The Trap’ actress Lee Sung Kyung. The roles would be a challenge to them both as Park Shin Hye is playing the lead role, and Lee Sung Kyung the second lead role.
The premiere of the drama is quite far off in the future, therefore both actresses are considering to accept the offers made to them. If accepted, Park Shin Hye would play the role of Hye Jung who has lived as a gangster in the past, but goes on to change into a well respected neurosurgeon. Lee Sung Kyung would play the role of Seo Woo who is brought up in a rich family with a caring nature, but changes into a vengeful person when she realises that the person she loves has been stolen from her.
The drama is planned to be telecast on Mondays and Tuesdays starting somewhere around mid june. “Doctors” explores the relationship between patients and doctors while touching on academic elitism in the Korean society.

******I thought, while reading the first line Shin Hye accepted the offer but as i read along, it seems like she still hadn't accepted the role. I will make a thread when this is really confirmed by SALT ENT
Kim Rae Won is offered the male lead role for Doctors..
Acdg to HB Entertainment KRW will decide about Doctors after finishes filming his movie The Prison with Han Suk Yu in April...
The role offered to KRW is named Hong Ji Hong a neurosurgeon expert. He's outgoing,friendly, trustworthy and a realist...
So acdg to the 3rd article released..KRW is currently discussing his role with SBS, the PD and the writer.I guess he wants a bigger role..

They were seen together last when sitting on the same table at the award ceremony alongwith LMH...This has to be the first senior actor to be starred opposite in a drama.....Go Soo being the first in a movie..
He won actor of the year award(PD) for punch in 2015....nominated for Daesang for the same in Baeksang awards 2015 where he shated the same table with Shinhye and LMH....
Link to summary of KRW's dramas.... www.dramafever.com/news/8-dramas-that-fe...s-actor-kim-rae-won/
"Punch " with lot of critical acclaim....
His famous movies " My little Bride" with MGY and " Gangam Blues" with LMH and more ....
Personally, I have liked him in the projects that I have watched .....you from another star, My attic cat and My little bride. He CAN act and is a charismatic star....
Both leads yet to confirm....
Waalaikum Salaam Elena!
Finally we meet. ......great!
Yes could not sleep after waking up at 3:30 am.....specially with the above news...
Yes KRW is 31 years old but a good actor. Have seen him in three .....He definitely has acting chops and screen presence. He is better than his pictures.....
I think it would be a good cast and the drama a chance of being successful.....if only the director is a good one too..
Even if the drama is not a huge success....I want Shinhye to get a role where she can get recognition as a solid good actress .....cementing the acclaim she got for her role in Pinocchio ...

Yes Sis Maris,
it feel so great we could finally meet here.
Anyway, I have to leave office soon. Wish we could meet again here.
I wish Shin Hye will have new drama soon.
We still drought news and pictures about Shin Hye...sigh.
This news is getting me more excited! Thank you sis @Maris totally welcome his joining the casts of Doctors if Kim Rae Won confirms, been waiting for Shinhye to confirm...
I really do that both Shinhye and Raewon takes this drama.
Him possibly asking for a 'bigger role' is fine... he has been acting since 1997-98. He has garnered impressive awards for his works over the years. Have watched Punch drama and got the Producer's Award (for Punch). He is discussing his role with SBS, PD and writter.
I am guessing the original title: Female Gangster Hye-Jung won't be
A drama about the realism in the relationship between doctors and patients and the social prejudice of educational background and origin.
When Hye-Jung was young, her life was difficult. She was good at fighting, but also studied well. Overcoming her tough situation, she is now a doctor.
let's see when time progresses by end of this month or early April..
Hello sis @Elana, it is good to see you.. hope to see you more often.. even all of us with busy everyday schedules for the love of our family here....
