Jo Jung-seok considers tvN drama from Answer Me director-writer duo
Jo Jung-seok might still be busy fighting for the common folk in Nokdu Flower, but he’s already courting offers for his next project, and I’m really really hoping he takes this one. The star PD-writer combo that brought us the Answer Me series is reuniting for another outing at tvN and has offered Jo Jung-seok a lead role. The working title of the show is Smart Doctor Living, a play on PD Shin Won-ho’s 2017 hit Smart Prison Living.
There’s not been much that has been released about the show in terms of plot details. But, understandably, there’s a lot of buzz given that PD Shin Won-ho and writer Lee Woo-jung are coming together again for their fourth collaboration after the hugely successful Answer Me series. I’m not sure my heart’s ready for another installment of Answer Me, so I’m pretty happy to see them take on another concept for this show.
I’m honestly a little surprised that Jo Jung-seok has been offered a lead character in the show because this director is famous for casting lesser known actors. But, I’m not at all opposed if he does accept, because I can see Jo Jung-seok fitting right into the heart-tugging dramedy genre that this director-writer duo is so good at.
Smart Doctor Living is expected to air on tvN sometime in the latter half of this year.
