Yoo Yeon-seok up to reunite with Answer Me PD-writer duo in tvN drama
Chilbong-ahhhhh!! Yoo Yeon-seok (Mr. Sunshine) is reportedly in the final stages of starring in Smart Doctor Living, the anticipated reunion drama of the PD-writer duo (and now, hopefully, one of their many breakout stars) who brought us the Answer Me series. I can’t believe that it’s been six years since Answer Me 1994 aired, and I’m praying that this Yoo Yeon-seok-Shin Won-ho-Lee Woo-jung combo will finally heal the Chilbongie-sized hole that’s been in my heart ever since.
As expected of PD Shin, plot details for Smart Doctor Living, which is a working title, are few and far between right now. All we know is that it’s a medical drama refreshingly devoid of hospital politics or heavily technical medical lingo, and will instead focus on the lives of the doctors, nurses, and patients that inhabit a hospital. I’m excited to think that we’re going to get something similar to Smart Prison Living but transplanted into a hospital, filled with quirky people who are at times hilarious, at times heartbreakingly sad, with their stories always told with enormous heart.
It’s not clear whether Yoo Yeon-seok is up for the same character that Jo Jung-seok (Nokdu Flower) was considering, but I really hope not, because I would love to see their onscreen chemistry together. Sunbae-hoobae doctor buddies, anyone? Just as long as they’re not a part of some love triangle. Hopefully, this show will resemble Smart Prison Living more than the Answer Me series on that front.
Smart Doctor Living is tentatively scheduled to premiere on tvN this coming December or January, and is being planned as a multi-season show.
