Is actress Park Shin Hye making her comeback? Responding to media reports that the mother of one will be reuniting with actor Park Hyung-Sik for Doctor Slump, and both their agencies have responded in the affirmative that parties are currently in active talks!
Upcoming drama Doctor Slump chronicles the journeys of two doctors with bright futures who hit rock bottom and gave up their medical careers; who later find growth, love and redemption in each other. Helmed by What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim scriptwriter Sun-woo Baek, it is set to air in October 2023 on JTBC.
Slated to play the role of Sky, Park Shin Hye’s onscreen character escapes from her duties after extreme pressures from the hospital professor; while Park Hyung-Sik plays lead character Jung Woo, a popular plastic surgeon who falls from the heights of success after a malpractice case. While they were rivals back at high school competing for the top student ranking, the two ended up as neighbors who share the pains of a career low, and find themselves romantically entangled.
Last Paired in 2013’s “The Heirs”
Last appearing in Sisyphus: The Myth which aired in 2021, Park Shin Hye announced news of her pregnancy and impending marriage to actor Choi Tae-joon, making public their four-year relationship. Giving birth to her son in May this year, Doctor Slump will likely be her comeback drama and her second medical drama to date after 2016’s Doctors – the actress dropped obvious hints in an Instagram post on October 14, “Please grow out, (my) hair, it’ll soon be time for work,”
