Joseon Psychiatrist Yoo Se-poong is open for business in new promos

We get our first look at tvN’s Joseon Psychiatrist Yoo Se-poong in a short new video teaser and behind-the-scenes stills featuring our main trio: Kim Min-jae (Dal-li and Gamjatang), Kim Hyang-gi (Moment at Eighteen), and Kim Sang-kyung (Racket Boys).

Based on a popular novel by the same name, the comedy sageuk stars Kim Min-jae as the titular Yoo Se-poong. Although he once had the honor of becoming a royal physician, he’s kicked out of the palace following an unexpected scandal and his reputation is tarnished as a doctor who can’t handle needles.

In the outside world, he encounters the young widow Seo Eun-woo – played by Kim Hyang-gi – who hails from a noble family in the country side. Full of dreams, curiosity, and compassion, she strives to help others who are emotionally hurting.

Rounding out the trio is Kim Sang-kyung, who plays their eccentric teacher Kye Ji-han. On the surface, he seems like he’s only chasing money, but his intentions always come from a place of care, and he helps guide our young physician into becoming a real doctor.

In supporting roles we have Yoo Se-poong’s adorkable servant Ahn Chang-hwan (Showtime Begins!), royal inspector Jung Won-chang (The Uncanny Counter), as well as the ambitious court physician Lee Seo-hwan (Love All Play).

The new teaser begins with our trio stuck behind locked doors and we hear teacher Kye Ji-han complaining, “Why isn’t the door opening?” Yoo Se-poong thinks they can get it open if they try a little more and teacher Kye instructs him to use more strength. Widow Seo Eun-woo warns them, though, to still be careful before Yoo happily announces, “It’s open!”

As the doors swing open, we finally see our trio’s smiling faces and our friendly physician asks, “What kind of pain brought you here? Let me see how your mind and heart are doing first.” The video then closes on our three heroes standing demurely together outside.

Production for the drama is being led by a team of a five with PD Park Won-gook (Special Labor Inspector Jo) and PD Kang Hee-joo co-directing, and Park Seul-gi, Choi Min-ho, and Lee Bom writing. Joseon Psychiatrist Yoo Se-poong will be premiering August 1 in tvN’s Monday-Tuesday slot.

I've been waiting for this since it was announced months ago!!
I just want more of Kim Minjae, really!!

Based on the few teasers released it looks lighter than I expected, also some more comedy too!
I hope it'll be good! ^^

This looks like it will be exactly the type of historical drama I am looking for so I hope it’s light on politics and killings and heavy on friendship mayhem. I am happy if there is no romance as long as it’s character led and has loads of feel good factor, Live up to your name, Mr Queen and Rookie Historian style.

I have had my eye on JOSEON PSYCHIATRIST for quite awhile also.
I hope this tvN drama will be available on a legal stream in the US.
One thing I really didn’t think about was the costuming and now that I have seen the teaser my initial reaction was, “Oh no. 12 episodes of Kim Min-jae dressed in THAT! No hanbok? Maybe he will get dressed in hanbok for house calls lol.

Seeing Kim Sang-kyung there reminded me how good he was in THE CROWNED CLOWN (2019) (Viki US) and it is nice to see him back in a sageuk. It also brings to mind an idea of mine that there is a resemblance between Kim Min-jae and Yeo Jin-goo and I would love to see those guys together (maybe brothers?) in a drama. A sageuk would be fantastic.

Yes a historical hospital playlist type of drama would be perfect. The drama coming from getting to know the characters, the will they/won’t they find the right treatment for the patient and day to day friendship banter amongst work colleagues.
