On March 14, JTBC’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Doctor Cha Jung Sook” unveiled a main poster, signaling a fierce counterattack by Cha Jung Sook (Uhm Jung Hwa). Cha Jung Sook’s extraordinary aura, which gives Seo In Ho (Kim Byung Chul), her husband and chief of surgery at a university hospital, a sparking curiosity, makes us wonder about her performance as she began her life reboot.
“Doctor Cha Jung Sook” depicts the torn life of Cha Jung Sook (Uhm Jung Hwa), who became a resident in her first year after being a housewife for 20 years. Following the fierce counterattack of ordinary housewife Cha Jung Sook, whose family was everything to her, the noisy scandals in her life, provide pleasant laughter and create realistic empathy.
The main poster released adds expectations of Cha Jung Sook’s fierce rebellion. Cha Jung Sook slaps her husband Seo In Ho’s cheek with a full swing, along with the phrase, “What’s wrong with you? I’m also a person who once flew” suggests Cha Jung Sook’s changed life. Seo In Ho’s face, whose pupils shake after Cha Jung Sook’s flame slap, adds laughter. His bewildered moment, where he seems to be unable to grasp what happened, makes us wonder about the reversal of the relationship that happened to the couple.
Above all, the comic synergy that Uhm Jung Hwa and Kim Byung Chul will create is expected. Uhm Jung Hwa will play the role of Cha Jung Sook who wears the doctor’s gown again in 20 years, leaving her long stay-at-home mom life behind, giving life to another character. Having survived an unexpected crisis, she faces a major turning point in her life, deciding to re-challenge the major course she gave up for her family. Fans are looking forward to Uhm Jung Hwa’s passionate performance, which will portray the dynamic change of Cha Jung Sook, who is trying to reboot her life at the edge of the cliff, more than ever.
Kim Byung Chul plays Cha Jung Sook’s strict and sensitive husband and Seo In Ho, head of surgery at a thorough university hospital. A perfectionist who never loses his dignity and composure 365 days a year, but has a brazen secret that will astonish everyone. At that time, the gratitude for his wife, who gave up her doctor career and endured a hard marriage, was blurred. He faces a lifetime crisis after his wife, who has changed 180 degrees after liver transplant surgery and restarts her career as a resident. Kim Byung Chul, who returns as a character who cannot be hated, naturally unravels the dangerous double life of Seo In Ho, an extremely moral gentleman.
The production team of “Doctor. Cha Jung Sook” said, “The dynamic change of Cha Jung Sook, who started to suture her life in search of the true ‘me’, is common. It will provide laughter and empathy. Please look forward to the medical comedy completed with Uhm Jung Hwa and Kim Byung Chul’s chemistry.”
Meanwhile, JTBC’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Doctor Cha Jung Sook” will premiere at 10:30 p.m. on April 15.
