The starring role has been offered to Jo Jung Suk (Nokdu Flower) for the upcoming Korean drama Doctor Playbook. Doctor Playbook follows the lives and struggles of doctors, nurses, and patients in a hospital.
It comes from the writer as well as the PD of the Reply series and Prison Playbook. If Jo Jung Suk accepts, he would play the role of a doctor. The show is also said to have three seasons planned.
These medical dramas sure are coming at us at a record pace. Doctor Prisoner, Doctor Detective, Doctor Room, and now Doctor Playbook. And they sure do like to have doctor in their title! Of course, with this writer/PD combo, I would anticipate another down to earth and very slice life sort of drama.
Doctor Playbook is looking to air in the second half of 2019 on tvN.
