Kim Rae-won, Park Shin-hye confirmed for SBS’s Doctors

I had a feeling this was coming, and now producers have confirmed that Kim Rae-won (Punch) and Park Shin-hye (Pinocchio) have signed on to star in the upcoming Monday-Tuesday SBS miniseries Doctors. Both actors had been announced weeks ago as possibilities, and a few days ago there was even a rash of confirmation articles that were immediately countered with “no, still considering” rebuttals, but now the final decision has come in.

The drama, which comes to us from the writer of Could We Marry, Warm Words, and High Society, is set in the field of neurosurgery, with Kim Rae-won set to play a neurosurgery specialist and professor who’s both a rational realist and an eminently affable personality who’s liked by all. Aw, I love happy Kim Rae-won, and I’ve missed him! He’s certainly wonderful in grittier, darker roles too, but man when he’s warm and charming, he’s so endearing.

He’ll also become the mentor and sunbae who’ll help turn around the cynical heroine’s life; that role is Park Shin-hye’s, who plays a woman who doesn’t trust people easily because of scars from her childhood, and who keeps her heart shut from others. She’s tough both in personality and with her fists, and is always going wayward, until she meets a mentor and starts to change, which allows her to put the past behind her and become a doctor.

The title is terribly generic-sounding, but I’m definitely up for these actors and those character descriptions. Sounds like it could be both fun and thoughtful, and I’ll be looking to see who else they cast; Lee Sung-kyung (Cheese in the Trap’s Baek In-ha) and Yoon Kyun-sang (Six Flying Dragons) are also in the mix as potential co-stars.

Doctors will air following Jackpot, which puts its premiere in June.

I like what I read and think this will be great.
The role seems to be challenge for PSH and I believe she will shut her hater up once again, like she has done many times in FBND and Pinocchio.

But he is just her mentor right? There is no love line between them then?

I think there's supposed to be a love story line between them. Yoon kyun sang is possibly going to play second lead for the romance.

yeah I thought there was a love line between them too but reading this... I am not sure anymore
Maybe, PSH will have mentor relationship with KRW and have love line with 2nd lead?

I love the 'badass heroines' and 'kind heros' pairings. There's just something about sassy heroines that make them so enjoyable to watch. Since this is entirely within Shin-Hye's scope, and since I hear 'Punch' with Rae-Won was acclaimed, the pairing will be the gold of this story.

The writing is another thing. Not one of the dramas this writer wrote are highly acclaimed...and this happens to be another medical drama. How's it gonna be unique and successful in this respect? Good Doctors had a warm, feel-good mood, but I hear Yong-Pal and Doctor Stranger were terrible...

Let's all hope the story won't drag this promising pair down!

These actually sound like typical roles in kdramas but with the genders reversed. Usually the guy is the one that's closed off with a painful past and the woman is the one who ~changes~ him lol.

I'm curious, why do they announce who they've made offers to?

I know every once in a while with American movies/shows, you'll hear "[so-in-so] was offered this [iconic role] but turned it down", but that's usually many, many, many years after the fact.

Does anybody know why S. Korea releases this info? Do they think if enough fans get excited, the stars will hear and accept the role?

Maybe promotion strategy? I think they want to see the reaction first before proceed. After all, making drama also is a business.

Everything sounds great from KRW-Shinhye pairing to synopsis.....They have such expressive eyes....I am sure they will be great together.
Also I am wishing for Yoon Kyun Sang to accept...he was amazing in Pinocchio and 6flying Dragons. Although haven't seen LSK but heard all good about her.
With a good cast at hand.....Writer-director please give us a good drama...

Smae here, I can't figure out why KRW would chose such a generic role while what he excells is are larger than life roles, but I think I have 2 theories:
Either the role is more than they let us know, which would explain why he accepted to return to SBS after what they've done
Or the fact that he has 2 movies coming so his roles were too challenging & demanding that he opted for a toned down role for drama
Anyway, I really want it to be good cause I can't see myself passing on a KRW drama because it sucks!

i haven't seen those two dramas, but I've seen can we get married? by the same writer and it was quite good. the script for this drama has already gotten praise, so i wouldn't be worried too much.

The writer alone puts me in the firm "not watching this category". And it's a medical drama. Every Korean medical drama (and virtually all Japanese ones) I have seen has just been ... generic generic generic. Stock characters. Lazy on the medical side. Always the same kind of complications (hospital politics!).

The description of the characters and the synopsis so far don't contain any spark that makes me think this will be some new, fresh scenario. Maybe they are not telling us everything here yet, but at the moment they are not managing to get me excited and sell this drama to me.

I put my trust on Kim Rae Won's decision to accept the role, so I will watch this for him. KRW is good in every kind of role, so I have no doubt about.

Anyway, I am ready to see PSH in a different role. And ready to see if there is another war again. lol *kidding.

I will watch just for KRW. Love that guy. Also crossing my fingers for those potential second leads. Though.. I really don't want another angsty Yoon Kyun Sang. I reallllly dislike him in those kind of roles. Please be quirky cute and funny!

I wonder how you know she isn't a good match for him without even watching?
She has worked with many actors before and they all praised her

The fact that this drama is produced by KRW's agency and Shinhye was chosen among all the actresses to star opposite him does reflect a lot on how much suited she is to play this particular role.
Learning is a continuous process. It's like a death knell for an artist if they consider themselves to know everything. Each time they act a certain character they grow as an artist because it was played under different set of parameters.....
Both will take something away with them by virtue of playing against each other.
Time will tell but I honestly feel that KRW and Shinhye will match well. They both have such expressive eyes and screen presence. It will be great watching them together.

Actually it's the other way around.....Shinhye was first offered the role of Female gangster Hye Jung sometime back...in what was considered to be a female centric drama. Just recently KRW was cast in the main lead opposite her . We can thus safely conclude that He had the option of declining if he had wanted to.
Yes....as you said this will be a good learning experience for both. Look forward to seeing them both.

As much as I love Park Shin Hye, the writer is the one responsible for High Society ? I'll take good plots vs my fave actors/actresses. However, let's see the first few episodes before making an judgements about the show. Still excited though hahaha

I can't stand medical drama, I'm too squeamish.
I hated 'High Society'. It probably has something to do with the fact that I hate UE and Sung Joon.
But I've missed Park Shin-hye, so I'll give this a try.

Well This drama will be great.The actors are really good and after a long time of being absence on the small screen the long wait is over so we have to celebrate because we can watch them in June so give them a chance and knowing Kim Rae Won.He wouldnt accept it if this drama will not challenge him and so with Park Shin Hye .So we have to wait and see before we judge them.All I can say is goodluck and I hope that all the fans who waited for this we need to show our support..

For me the only concerns are......the script and the director Oh Chung Hwan....I could not Google anything about him. I believe he has been assisting directors in dramas and this will be his debut venture. Someone mentioned him being the assistant PD for YWCFTS but I did not see his name in the credits....
Hopefully the experienced and good cast of KRW, PSH, YKS, LSK and Kim Young Ae as the grandmother would be able to overcome those shortcomings......just praying that the script....is cohesive, interesting and good enough to give this cast the platform to show what they can do.

I'm happy PSH took this roll. The story sounds boring and uninteresting so it will be a show I stay away from. Would rather she be occupied in a show I don't want to watch then a show I do want to watch.

I'm sure she doesn't mind that you aren't watching either.
It's not like she gain a few bucks from you
But taking this role meas she is taking a challenge and doing something different than what she has been doing.
She is gaining and will learn a lot here.
