Jung So-min, Shin Ha-kyun up for KBS medical drama Soul Repairer

Jung So-min’s (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky) agency has announced that she is currently considering an offer for Soul Repairer. This drama centers around a story about psychiatrists and their patients, and it will explore the question of basic happiness in a medical context.

Shin Ha-kyun (Bad Detective) has already confirmed that he will be playing a prickly, eccentric psychiatrist at a general hospital who has a hardened system of beliefs. If Jung So-min confirms, she will play a passionately righteous musical actress who helps mental patients with their recovery through theater.

If Jung signs on, it will be the first time she and Shi Ha-kyun have worked together. Though it’s a medical drama, it would be nice to see a bit of lightness and humor mixed in, since both their last drama projects dealt with some pretty heavy subject matter.

Upcoming KBS drama Soul Repairer, written by Lee Hyang-hee (King’s Face) and directed by Yoo Hyun-ki (Matrimonial Chaos), will air in the early half of next year.

i really like jung so min. i think she has such a pure timeless look to her, and a really versatile actress. hundred million stars from the sky really highlighted her as a top actress for me. looking forward to her next drama!

Oh - I disagree.
Jung So Min's ability has stood out right from the beginning. She went from her first supporting role to a lead in the next. Not many do that.

What is noticeable are her meatier roles since she switched agencies in 2017.

Hmmmm. I am conflicted if they will do a good job. I had high hopes for Dr John but it’s disappointed me by choosing to focus more on the romance than actual proper life-death discourse, with illogical antagonists.

Psychiatric conditions are also hard to portray well and sensitively. Especially in Korea where so much stigma is attached to mental illness.

I don’t know if this will be like Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, which ironically had less romance and more medicine, but I guess I hope so?

Not sure if I'll watch but I'll give it a thumbs up for NOT being a show about a psychiatrist falling in love with a patient. At least not the main story ...

Shin Ha-kyun was fantastic in BRAIN so I'm not surprise he is teaming up with the same writer for another medical drama.
I'm not a fan of medical dramas but I'd watch it for his performance alone.

Move over prosecutors and priests, it’s time for the psychiatrists!

Kim Soo Hyun is also up for a drama set in a psychiatric ward next year: “Psycho but that’s Okay” (I’m not okay with that title but whatever).

I like the premise, I love JSM.
I don't know Shin Ha-kyun, but I am open for surprises, and pricky psychiatrists are easy to believe. So, being it on!
