More additions to Medical Top Team
Okay, so I was wrong about casting for this drama slowing down — what’re we, staffing a whole hospital for this show? We’ve got more additions to the cast of MBC’s fall Wednesday-Thursday drama Medical Top Team with Alex (Smile Donghae, Pasta) and Lee Hee-jin (Monstar, Best Love) signing on. I don’t think they’re on Team Genius (that’d be Kwon Sang-woo, Jung Ryeo-won, Joo Ji-hoon et al) but who knows, maybe it’s a hospital full of ’em. Only geniuses need apply.
The new medical drama from the writer of Brain and the PD of The Moon That Embraces the Sun is about a group of doctors who are each the best in his or her field, gathered together to form — you guessed it — the Top Team. Alex will join the staff as a doctor specializing in imaging, who also considers himself the right-hand man to Ahn Nae-sang’s Chief of Surgery. He’s a hit with patients, and is famous for his sweet bedside manner (which fits him to a tee), but he’s also extremely ambitious and competitive, so it sounds like he’ll be a source of strife for our leads.
Lee Hee-jin will play an experienced surgical nurse, who’s meticulous by nature and a perfectionist at her job. She doesn’t stand for mistakes, but that doesn’t mean she’s cold; she’s sociable and singlehandedly sways popular opinion around the hospital. She’ll develop a particularly compatible working relationship with Kwon Sang-woo, which sounds cute.
