The first script reading photos of “Dr Romantic” season 3 has been unveiled.
On March 16, SBS’s new Friday-Saturday drama “Dr Romantic” unveiled the script reading photos that were taken in October last year.
SBS’s “Dr Romantic” is a drama that depicts the story of a “Real Doctor” in the background of a shabby and old hospital in a small province. The first season aired in 2016 was a mega-hit with the highest rating of 27.6% and the SBS drama has received a lot of love for two consecutive seasons, and the second season aired in 2020 with the best rating of 27.1%.
In this season 3, many major roles in season 2 returned, led by Han Suk Kyu, who plays the role of Kim Sa Bu, a freak genius doctor. At the script reading site held in October last year, Han Suk Ku, Ahn Hyo Seop, Lee Sung Kyung, Jin Kyung, Im Won Hee, Byun Woo Min, Kim Joo Heon, Yoon Nam Woo, Shin Dong Wook, So Ju Yeon, Ko Sang Ho, Yoon Bo Ra, and Jung Ji An all gathered. Kim Min Jae, who confirmed his appearance, was unfortunately unable to participate due to his promised schedule but added support.
Director Yoo In Sik and writer Kang Eun Kyung, who led the “Dr Romantic” series, opened the door with an emotional greeting. Director Yoo In Sik, who returned to direct season 3 of “Dr Romantic” as his next work after the ENA drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” received cheers from everyone. Director Yoo In Sik said, “I think ‘Dr Romantic’ is becoming a life drama and life series for many people. I think it’s time for romance again,” he said, drawing applause. Writer Kang Eun Kyung said, “I feel more nervous than I did in seasons 1 and 2. As we gather like this, I feel like I’m back at Doldam Hospital.”
The actors, who reunited after three years, greeted each other and expressed their affection for the “Dr Romantic” series. Han Suk Kyu said, “I want to make season 3 fun with you again. Thank you for making the season 3 stage,” after he said that cheering with “Dr. Kim! Dr. Kim!” started at the scene. Ahn Hyo Seop, who plays Seo Woo Jin, said, “I’m honored to work together again,” and Lee Sung Kyung, who plays Cha Eun Jae, said, “I’m lucky to be able to do the work that many people loved again.”
As the script reading began in earnest, the site turned into a lively atmosphere unique to Doldam Hospital. Han Suk Kyu exuded the unparalleled charisma of Kim Sa Bu, an eternal mentor and an eccentric genius doctor. Ahn Hyo Seop has revealed the strong presence of Seo Woo Jin, a GS specialist who is now one of the pillars of the hospital. Lee Sung Kyung played Cha Eun Jae, who overcame her fear of surgery and grew up as a CS specialist.
The Doldam hospital actors boasted stronger teamwork. Jin Kyung as head nurse Oh Myung Sim, Jang Won Hee as chief administrator, Byun Woo Min as chief anesthesiologist Nam Do Il, Yoon Namu as Jung In Soo and So Ju Yeon as Yoon Ah Ram, Shin Dong Wook as orthopedic surgeon Bae Moon Jung, and Yoon Bo Ra and Uhm Hyun Jung as nurses led the scene with perfect harmony. Kim Joo Heon, who played the role of director Park Min Guk, who formed a confrontation with Kim Sa Bu in season 2, has been supporting Kim Sa Bu since season 3.
The story of Doldam Hospital, which has become more spectacular than in season 2, was filled with realistic acting by actors. When Dr. Kim says the lines, “I will save you unconditionally,”, everyone burst into exclamations and immersed themselves in an urgent situation. In addition, Kang Eun Kyung’s witty lines came as a stronger echo in season 3 and colored the scene with emotion. The characters played by newly joined Lee Shin Young and Lee Hong Nae have created an exciting scene, raising expectations for the season 3 story.
The production team said, “You will be able to see deeper teamwork between director Yoo In Sik, writer Kang Eun Kyung, and actors of ‘Doldam hospital’ in season 3. Season 3 was able to come out thanks to viewers’ waiting. Please look forward to the stories and spectacular events that contain our reality in 2023, and the time of ‘romantic’ that will unfold again in them.”
Meanwhile, “Dr Romantic” is scheduled to replace “Taxi Driver” season 2 and air for the first time in April.
