Ji Sub has opened out about his upcoming MBC drama “Doctor Lawyer”!
“Doctor Lawyer” is a new drama about a brilliant surgeon who becomes a medical malpractice lawyer after losing everything in a rigged surgical procedure and a prosecutor who loses her sole family and lover in the same process. They teamed together to punish those who believe that the value of an individual’s life can be measured just by their riches and power.
So Ji Sub will play the fictional medical malpractice lawyer Han Yi Han, who changed occupations after a traumatic incident in the operating room, in what will be his first drama role in four years.
“Like the title of the drama, the unique plot of a ‘doctor-turned-lawyer’ seemed intriguing,” So Ji Sub explained when asked why he chose the drama for his next mission. I chose this project because it will allow me to experience both medical and judicial dramas, so I believe I will be able to demonstrate a variety of acting skills.”
“He was an ace doctor of the highest class, but he was robbed of everything by a fraudulent procedure, and he returns as a medical malpractice lawyer to exact refreshing revenge,” the actor said of his character Han Yi Han.
So Ji Sub characterized Han Yi Han as a character who is both a doctor and a lawyer, but when his situation changes, he exhibits radically different emotions and goals. He went on to say that he believed it would be interesting to highlight the various qualities of the same character in a single drama.
The premiere of “Doctor Lawyer” will take place on June 3 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
