Starring Role Offered to Nam Goong Min for Kdrama “Doctor Prisoner”

Doctor Prisoner Korean Drama - Nam Goong Min

The starring role has been offered to Nam Goong Min (Handsome Guy and Jung Eum) for the new KBS drama Doctor Prisoner. Doctor Prisoner is about a top doctor who has to wrongly leave his position so he seeks revenge on those responsible by trying to get a job at a prison hospital where he can make some big connections. The drama comes from the PD of Laurel Tree Tailors.

So it looks like Nam Goong Min might be going back to a serious role this time. And we know he’s good at that! I can certainly see him out for some revenge and giving us another excellent performance.

Doctor Prisoner is looking to air in the first half of 2019 on KBS.

    Well…medical drams are pretty much something that I try to avoid these days…but….the word revenge of course caught my eyes (you know how much I love watching those kinds of shows 😊). So who knows, maybe I will give this one a go once it comes out 😊

    I dropped Handsome Guy and Jung Eum after having watched its first 5 episodes. Hmm.. I got lost in the drama for some unknown reasons and was not able to return to the momentum. Maybe it was the story that I couldn’t find interesting. You know how I love both Namgoong Min and Hwang Jung Eum. Especially Hwang Jung Eum in Lucky Romance (9.5/10) and Secret Love (9.5/10). So here’s hoping to see the talented Namgoong Min in an interesting drama this time.

      I understand, Handsome Guy and Jung Eum was a fairly bland drama. I love Hwang Jung Eum too and watched it for her. I found it pleasant enough, but not particularly riveting. I did like seeing Nam Goong Min in a lighter role again, but we know he’s great at the serious stuff too, so this could be good fit for him 🙂

        I agree. I also did like him very much specifically in Remember (9.5/10) and Sensory Couple (9/10). And I loved him in Chief Kim (9.5/10). 🙂 His comedic style in a comedy drama with a heart, and not in just a plain story like Undateables. Well here’s hoping he’d accept this role. 🙂

          Oh yes, he was amazing in Remember and Sensory Couple. Playing those villains seems to have really gave his career a boost since his talent was recognized and he was able to secure lead roles after that. For comedies, I absolutely loved him in Beautiful Gong Shim. He was so quirky in that with impeccable comedic timing. He definitely needs a good drama to showcase his talent 🙂
