First script reading for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2 with Han Seok-kyu, Lee Sung-kyung, Ahn Hyo-seop
SBS drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is returning for season 2 and new stills have been released featuring the cast and crew at their first script reading, which took place in September.
The overarching story of what it means to be a real doctor continues in this new season with Han Seok-kyu reprising his role as the eccentric and cantankerous Teacher Kim. And he is still running the wayward Doldam hospital in the countryside, along with his quirky and loyal group of staff.
There are some new faces in the cast with Lee Sung-kyung (About) playing Cha Eun-jae. Cheerful in disposition, she worked extremely hard to excel in her job and is currently a second-year fellow specializing in cardiothoracic surgery. Joining her as a new recruit at the Doldam hospital is Ahn Hyo-seop (Abyss) who plays Seo Woo-jin. In contrast to Lee, Ahn is more cynical in personality and is a second-year fellow in general surgery.
Thankfully, most of the original supporting cast returns in season 2: fierce chief nurse Jin Kyung (Untouchable), kind nurse Kim Min-jae (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency), and oddball administrator Im Won-hee (Melting Me Softly). Returning doctors include: Yoon Na-moo (Melting Me Softly), Byun Woo-min (Nameless Woman), and Choi Jin-ho (Extraordinary You).
On the production side, writer Kang Eun-kyung (Fox Bride Star) and PD Yoo In-shik (Vagabond) from the first season are working together on the second season as well.
I’m sad that Yoo Yeon-seok and Seo Hyun-jin won’t be reprising their roles, and I was hoping to see more of Han Seok-kyu and Kim Hye-soo’s story if they did a season 2 (Is it too late to wish for another cameo?). However, I’m still excited to see what’s in store for season 2 and I hope the creators have a good story to tell with the new characters.
SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2 is currently set to air early next year, on January 6.
