At the Netflix series “Daily Dose of Sunshine” production presentation held at a hotel in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 1st of November, Park Bo Young, who plays the role of ‘Daeun,’ a mental health nurse in the drama, said, “I think our drama can play a role in guiding people into the field of mental health more easily and comfortably.”
Park Bo Young took on the role of ‘Daeun,’ a mental health nurse in “Daily Dose of Sunshine,” and she said, “I thought I should do this drama with the heart of supporting Daeun’s growth because there are parts of Daeun that resonate with me.”
“Daily Dose of Sunshine” depicts the story of ‘Daeun,’ who changed her field from internal medicine to mental health in her third year of working as an over-enthusiastic, overly kind, and overly empathetic nurse, as she meets people with wounded hearts.
Park Bo Young reportedly observed the actual site and sought advice from medical professionals to make her basic nursing duties, such as blood pressure measurements and injections, appear natural. She also practiced meticulously to ensure that even the subtlest details, like charting patient information on screen, were accurate.
Park Bo Young expressed her gratitude, saying, “If I appear even a little bit like a nurse, it’s all thanks to the nurses at Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital.” She added that people who provided advice and guidance closely watched her and even recorded videos for her practice, and they discussed many things and studied together in a group chat.
“Daily Dose of Sunshine” is based on a webtoon of the same name, which was created from the experiences of the author Lee La Ha, who worked as an actual mental health nurse. The drama is directed by Lee Jae Kyu, known for works like “Now, We Are Breaking Up” and “Beethoven Virus,” and written by Lee Nam Kyu, who penned dramas like “Hip-Hop King” and “The Light in Your Eyes.”
“Daily Dose of Sunshine” has been released on Netflix earlier today.
