So Ji Sub in talks to star in his first drama in almost 4 years
On May 26, a source from agency 51K of So Ji Sub shared a statement regarding his casting in the new drama “Doctor Lawyer” (literal title). They stated, “It’s one of the projects he has received an offer for.”
“Doctor Lawyer” is a heart-warming and cathartic drama about a genius surgeon who becomes a medical malpractice lawyer after losing everything from a fabricated surgery and a prosecutor from the Medical Crimes Department who loses their only family and lover through that surgery. Together, they punish those who believe that the importance of a person’s life can be ranked based on their wealth and power and comfort the victims who have been wronged.
So Ji Sub was reportedly offered the role of Han Yi Han, a medical malpractice lawyer who used to be a genius double-board certified doctor with specialties in both general surgery and thoracic surgery. Prior to the incident that happened four years ago, he was a Bansuk University Hospital, ace surgeon. He was a doctor who kept his energy up and made his colleagues feel at ease with a relaxed smile despite the constant work overload. On top of that, his tall height made him look like a model in his white coat.
In 2018, So Ji Sub won the Daesang (grand prize) for his performance in MBC’s “My Secret Terrius” (also known as “Terius Behind Me”). If he accepts the offer, this will be his first time starring in a drama since then. Last year, So Ji Sub announced his marriage to reporter Jo Eun Jung, and his upcoming mystery thriller film “Confession” is slated to premiere soon.
“Doctor Lawyer” will be written by Jang Hong Chul of “Mr. Temporary” and will reportedly air at the beginning of next year.
