Judo champ Jung Kyeo-woon

SBS’s sports-medical series Dr. Champ is set at the Olympic athletic training facility, and thus the athlete characters are at the elite level. That means that Jung Kyeo-woon (Loving You a Thousand Times) has been getting busy with judo training in order to portray a character on the national team. Since being cast in early July, Jung has been spending 6 hours a day in the gym.

His character was something of a rising star ten years ago, but he’d been plagued with injuries and is now stuck in a tough spot as the promising guy who never delivered, the constant No. 2. He forms a romantic storyline with his doctor at the training village, played by Kim So-yeon (Prosecutor Princess), who also has a loveline with crotchety doctor Uhm Tae-woong (Queen Seon-deok), who in turn has another romantic thing going on with a swim coach (Cha Ye-ryun).

Jung is athletic to begin with, so his judo coach said that his training is proceeding at a swift pace. Jung explained that he’s played a judo athlete in the past, but he’d never learned the sport intensively, so naturally he’s finding the work tough. Even so, his coach praised his passionate commitment and diligent effort.

Dr. Champ will air following I Am Legend, and premieres September 27.

There were sometimes in Loving You he came off as seriously wooden in the acting department. Not every scene, but it was enough to make me cringe when he would come on screen. I will give this show a shot because as in Loving You, the rest of the cast looks good.

the eyecandy for Mr. Champ would make the series appealing but if the show is well written it would really make all the stars in it shine.

I think the head of SBS drama must be a sports fan.

Kim Bum's show of boxing was with SBS right? And he trained till he passed out?

Hope this guy managed to survive the training!

You should see him in Women of the Sun. I think that was his best performance, even though it was aired a while back.
