Park Shin Hye and Lee Sung Kyung consider offers to star in SBS medical drama Doctors
Park Shin Hye may be making her drama comeback! An offer is out to the actress to play the lead role in the upcoming SBS series Doctors. Lee Sung Kyung, fresh off of Cheese in the Trap, is up for the second female lead.
Now, before we all get TOO excited, none of the casting is confirmed. Park Shin Hye's representatives were careful to say that the drama premiere is still a long way off, so there's no hurry for her to make a decision. If Park Shin Hye accepts, she would play Hye Jung, a woman who has a gangster-like personality after a tough childhood. She grows up to become a smart, bold neurosurgery fellow, but she doesn't trust others and keeps an emotional distance from the people around her.
Lee Sung Kyung would play Hye Jung's rival in the neurosurgery fellowship. She starts out as a bright, caring young woman born into wealth and beauty, but she becomes angry and vengeful after the person she loves is stolen from her.
I know what you're thinking — I wouldn't let Baek In Ha do surgery on my brain in a million years! This may be an opportunity for Lee Sung Kyung to play a different type of character, or she might just end up being all-out crazy again. We certainly know she can do crazy!
Doctors will air on SBS following Jang Geun Suk's comeback drama, Daebak.
What do you think? Do you hope Park Shin Hye accepts this role? Who would you cast as the male lead (I assume there is one)? Share your thoughts in the comments!
