Actress Park Min Young was recently cast as the heroine in MBC’s series Doctor Jin (working title), which will start airing on May 26. Song Seung Hun was also cast in the series.
The series is based on the Japanese cartoon with the same name. It is a very unique medical drama about a doctor named Jin Hyuk (played by Song), who is from modern-day Korea but goes back to the Joseon Dynasty in the 1860s.
Park will play the double role of a talented physician named Yoo Mi Na in 2012 and a girl named Hong Young Lae, who is of noble birth in the Joseon Dynasty.
Yoo Min Na is bright and bubbly but also impulsive. She is a warm hearted person who can’t ignore people who need help. Hong Young Lae and Yoo Mi Na resemble each other a lot but have completely different personalities. Hong is calm and careful but has a very powerful maternal love.
Director Han Hee, who produces the series, said, “Park has appeared in other historical series, including Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and in modern series, including City Hunter and Glory Jae In. That’s why I thought Park was the perfect actress to be the heroine of the series. Since she is recognized as a veteran actress, I think she will do a good job performing in the series.”
The series, starring Song, Park, Kim Jae Joong, and Lee Beom Soo, will start airing on May 26 after the current series Feast of the Gods goes off air.
