Jung Seok-won cast in Dr. Champ

Jung Seok-won (Shining Inheritance, High Kick Through the Roof) has just been added to the cast of Dr. Champ, as a top Judo athlete. And well, if the picture below is any indication, he definitely looks the part.

The SBS Monday-Tuesday drama stars Kim So-yeon and Uhm Tae-woong as doctors in an Olympic training facility. The drama is being described as a “human-sports-medical drama.” What’s with all the genre-mash-ups lately? Well, I’m fairly certain “human” isn’t a genre so much as a species, so in case you thought Uhm Tae-woong was going to be Dr. House to a bunch of monkeys, it’s still pretty much what we’re expecting.

Jung Seok-won will be playing the role of Sang-bo, a top judo athlete who has already made a name for himself in the Asia Games and the Olympics. He will be a direct rival for Ji-heon, played by Jung Kyeo-woon.

Jung is actually a former stuntman from an action school, and is skilled in scuba diving, hapkido, taekwondo, fencing, and judo. Thus he will be shooting most of the stunts for his character himself.

He’s also starring in the Hwang Yoo-shik film The Beast, an action adventure about a trooper who rescues a kidnapped model. Heh. Some plots are just asking for mockery.

Dr. Champ airs September 27, after I Am Legend.

I mean, really. Are words necessary at this point? Buh?

Jeong Seok-won is a former marine so he would have to have a fit body :)

LMAO. Hilarious as always. But "Human Drama" is a pretty well known genre. I take it to mean "slice-of-life."

ROFL....I am so sold on the drama now....kekeke....I was humming hawing about it earlier.

Well,I hope he gets a meatier (nudge nudge wink wink ;-) part compared to the minor roles in Creating Destiny and Brilliant Inheritance.

Okay...back to adult behaviour...wow he's got a few things under his belt huh?

OMG why does every compliment/sentence I make have a double meaning even though I seriously meant to compliment him...and no not his looks! Really!!

Better this guy than Jung Kyeo-woon, whom I've grew to hate as an actor.

"I mean, really. Are words necessary at this point? Buh?"

girlfriday, I love your one-liners; just like the one on Rain's height.

We must collect those clever one-liners from you.

And I agree, words are unnecessary.

Wasn't he in 'Assorted Gems', too?
Cheers!

Hi aX (No. 16)

Would appreciate if you keep your not so nice comments on JGW to yourself. I am a fan of JGW and I find such strong language on him as unpalatable. This is not the first but the 3rd comment from you regarding him in the DR Champ matter. We all have our likes and dislikes but due to normal courtesy we do not air our dislikes as you do. Thank you.
