Well, well, well, this is an interesting casting development! Kim Rae Won has an offer to take the male lead in upcoming SBS drama Doctors, opposite potential female lead Park Shin Hye.

Doctors (which used to go by the much more interesting title Female Gangster Hye Jung) revolves around neurosurgery fellow Hye Jung (Park Shin Hye, if she accepts). She grows up with a gangster-like personality after a tough childhood, and she doesn't trust other people easily.

If Kim Rae Won accepts, he would play an affable and talented neurosurgery specialist. Now, before someone inevitably brings up age, let me do the math for you. There's an 8-year gap between Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won, so it's not that big of a deal. While Kim Rae Won's agency confirmed that the actor had received an offer, they also clarified that he hasn't considered it in depth yet.

Rounding out the group of possibly-maybe-but-not-confirmed cast members is Cheese in the Trap's Lee Sung Kyung. She's up for the role of Hye Jung's former classmate and neurosurgery rival. She comes from a wealthy family and has a bright personality until the loss of her love turns her bitter and vengeful.

At this point, Doctors could end up with all of these cast members or none of them. This certainly isn't the most obvious pairing in the world, but maybe that's a good thing! What do you think? Should they all accept? If not, who would you cast instead? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Doctors will air on SBS following Jang Geun Suk's comeback drama, Daebak.
