Good Doctor producers reteam for Blood

Good Doctor’s writer and director, Park Jae-bum and Kim Min-soo, are reteaming for another project to launch early next year, which is titled Blood. And just as I’m about to joke that the title makes me think of vampires more than doctors, I see that this drama is about vampire doctors. Ha! Also, get thee away from me? (Look, I like my vampires; I just don’t want to in any way facilitate their drinking me.)

Blood is described as a drama about a vampire lead character that’s set in a hospital, and deals with the conflict between good and evil, as well as immortal love and other vampirey themes. Sounds pretty vague, but we’ll have to wait and see on the drama’s tone, which in this kind of genre is really a make-it-or-break-it factor.

Given that the writer has also penned all four seasons of OCN’s medical-mystery drama God’s Quiz, I can see how this one fits into his wheelhouse, although considering that it’ll be a KBS Monday-Tuesday drama, it’ll probably be a lot less dark than I want my vampire shows to be. I mean, the whole point is eternal angsting and repression of instincts and tragic star-crossed loves with humans! That’s the price you pay for eternal life, beauty, and sparkling, isn’t it?

I suppose being on KBS doesn’t preclude it from being harder-edged, but I’m not expecting anything near what we’ve seen on cable. Who knows, maybe this’ll be a good-natured vampire drama… and maybe that’ll be fun in its own way? And hey, maybe CBS will wanna remake this one too? It actually sounds right up their alley. Vampire doctors, go!

Blood will follow Healer, the Song Ji-nah-scripted drama starring Yoo Ji-tae, Ji Chang-wook, and Park Min-young set in the world of broadcast reporting. Healer premieres in December, so the premiere of Blood will be in February.

I might, if they are also courting Ryu Deok Hwan to play the vampire doctor. Wish there's season 5 of God's Quiz to look forward to...

Probably a reference to twilight, so many vampire novels/drama make reference to them now. Which reminds me, this story is kinda like twilight, only that it focus on Carlisle's life

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Sorry; too excited over here. Vampire doctors. Hee! But who to cast? Song Jae Rim? Ooooo, wouldn't he make an excellent vampire doctor? Vaguely sinister, yet compelling.

Actually, I think the lead male from "My Secret Hotel" (whose name escapes me) would also make a good choice. His languid acting style would work well as a vampire.

And women? ::thinks:: Ha Ji Won would make a great choice - she has a very strong presence and could do all sorts of badass vampire stunts. And I think there should be a bubbly, happy vampire (bonus points if she's a bad guy vampire)...mmm, perhaps Kim Yoo Ri (who played the bubbly Lee Ran on 'God's Quiz 3'.)

JGS is a fine actor , if It's true then I hope he picks this up. He's been wasting his amazing talent since forever.

Oh seriously?? That would be fantastic! I thought Good Doctor was bland as heck but I'll take it over the crap JGS has been doing. I hope he picks this up and that it's great. I'll go through 20 Pretty Man if I can get him in something worth his talent. If only he'll give himself a chance...

hahahah I see Song Jae Rim' s name being dragged into like 70% of the casting news in the comments lol...he may not be that popular overall but we have resident SJR fangirls camped at DB :p

I would love to see LSH being casted here but he is already being courted for "Valid love", oh well...

Also when I think of vampires, I can't help but think of Jaejoong lol..he is kind of a Korean Hyde, dude just doesn't get old! but it's kinda impossible for him to be casted because of his upcoming MS OTL

Besides LSH, KWB would be an awesome casting!

LMAO at Jaejoong being the quintessential vampire...boy would he be perfect for this role! Especially with his much much improved acting.

And you are so right...dude just does not get old!

but unfortunately, he may be heading to the army..."cries"...

It's been done (::cough:: BBC Being Human ::cough:: - though the vampire was an orderly, not a doctor.)

I'm looking forward to it, as well - this sort of thing is right in my sweet spot, drama-wise. Yay for more vampire television! (Next, season 3 of Vampire Prosecutor, right? RIGHT? ::crosses fingers::)

I was waiting for someone to mention Being Human. But wasn't the vampire a nurse and the orderly was the warewolf. I have only seen the American version.

No, in the BBC version they were both orderlies, but the werewolf dated a nurse. (The BBC version is 1,000 times better than the American version, by the way - you should check it out.)

I hope lee soo hyuk ditches valid love and takes on this drama as the male lead. He is the best vampire you can find.

Required fields are marked *

Yup, I so agree with you. Lee Soo Hyuk would be perfect for the lead role. Well, if Valid Love is 16 episodes, he still can make it since this drama is scheduled for February 2015.

Not that I want him to be in Valid Love because the guy deserves a leading role already. Hello?!!

Seriously, why would a vampire work in a hospital? Is it to be close to the blood supplies(I am speaking of the blood bank not the humans)

Is he seeking to help the sick and injured based on some crime he committed in his long life?

DOES HE PERFORM SURGERY????

So many questions...tsk tsk

Well, if you have heard of the TV series ' Being Human', for the UK version the vampire was a hospital porter I think and as for the US franchise, he was a nurse. So I guess it does work.

Will have to see what the writers have in store. I hope it's interesting. :)

Well, since there doesn't seem to be a Vampire Prosecutor 3 in the works (at least not any time soon) I'll have to get my drama vampire fix somewhere. But I have to wait until February? Sucks. (No pun intended, of course. :) Haha.) Looking forward to who is cast! Hope it's someone I like. But wouldn't it be awesome if the vampire was a woman who falls in love with a human man. Nice twist that would be.

Talk about daily struggles with ethical conflicts and substance abuse!

Will there be an orderly who works in the morgue and provides our vampire with an illicit supply of blood?

Sounds like a good set-up, and room for an interesting team of vampire doctors (or is there only gonna be one?) - looking forward to it. And yes, Kim Jae Wook, Lee Soo Hyuk and Lee Jong Suk would all make fine vampires!

I think it totally depends on how the script will be. Not every vampire story should be dark, dangerous and sexy. For that I believe Kim Woo Bin will fit very well.

If it's going to be a vampire trapped in the futility of immortality, more sad than dangerous, then by all means Lee Jong Suk! It's been reported that he has received the script. Now, why do I hope that he'll accept this rather than Pinocchio? It sounds like a totally delicious role. But I can imagine he'll hesitate on this since he's just played a doctor. But please, SBS has been a disappointment most of the time recently so I really don't want to see him in that.
