“Dr. Romantic 3” actor Han Suk Kyu surprised everyone by revealing that Kim Min Jae will be enlisting in the military in July.
On the afternoon of the 26th, the production presentation of the new SBS Fri-Sat drama “Dr. Romantic 3” was held at SBS in Mok-dong, Yangcheon-gu, Seoul. The event was attended by PD Yoo In-sik, as well as actors Han Suk Kyu, Ahn Hyo Seop, Lee Sung Kyung, Kim Min Jae, Jin Kyung, Im Won Hee, and more.
Kim Min Jae, who has worked with Han Suk Kyu since “Dr. Romantic” Season 1, said, “He is a master who I want to call with all the good adjectives in this world. He is a senior who is so moving that any expression is not enough, and he is truly a presence like a master to me.”
Upon hearing this, Han Suk Kyu replied, “I feel like tears are coming up suddenly. Thank you so much, Kim Min Jae. I once told him to ‘go to the army and come back quickly’ when I first met him during Season 1, and he will be going to the army in July,” adding that he felt like he had caused an accident when Kim Min Jae was taken aback by his unexpected announcement.
Kim Min Jae said, “I think ‘Dr. Romantic 3’ will be my last 20s work. I have been struggling with how to say that I’m going to the army, but I think my senior has said it for me. It’s not confirmed yet, so I’ll let you know again when it is.”
Later, his agency said the actor is planning on enlisting soon but the exact enlistment date has not been confirmed yet.
Meanwhile, “Dr. Romantic 3” is a drama that depicts the story of a ‘real doctor’ that takes place in a poor provincial rundown hospital as its backdrop. Season 1, which aired in 2016, and Season 2, which aired in 2020, were both loved by viewers with a highest rating of over 27%, becoming a successful example of a Korean-style seasonal drama and leading to the production of Season 3. It will premiere on the 28th of April at 10 pm.
