Park Tae Shin


A Surgeon specialized in Thoracic surgery, but also skillful for various surgery departments.Despite his brilliant brain, he’s always misunderstood as an arrogant and mean guy due to his feisty confidence, straightforward personality and attitude. 
Sometimes his bold moves make others uncomfortable and his mischievous behavior makes him look materialistic as if he doesn’t have any sincerity. But in fact, he has a pure and warm heart although he pretends to be cynical. He is clumsy to share his feeling with others and treats his close friends curtly but maybe it’s because of the sad memories about his childhood when he was abandoned by his parents as soon as he was born. 
Nevertheless, currently he is a doctor with topnotch skills and wherever he is, he’s confident, haughty and outstanding. He has been working for almost 6 months without pay in Paran Hospital, a free clinic which is ran by Hwang Cheol Goo, and when he is now about to leave back for the U.S., something unexpected stops him.

Seo Joo Young


Ever since she was little, becoming a doctor was her dream. That’s because it was an upwardly mobile lifestyle that she could achieve entirely on her own. Even she knows that she gets called "tough cookie," "hard-core," and "crazy dog" by the junior doctors. She’s satisfied. That’s because it’s clear evidence that she has survived in cardiothoracic surgery where female doctors are uncommon.There’s not one time she has brought up stories about her family to other people. 
That’s because, to her, family is like a scar she doesn't want to show. To escape her contemptible family, she studied diligently and took care of everything by herself after she entered a science high school.She’s a mass of ambition trying tirelessly. Even so, she is not an avaricious woman.
Besides her medical skills, she’s also outstanding in terms of worldly wisdom. 
To earn what she desires, she knows to hide haughty talons and put on meaningless smiles, but she doesn’t realize at all how pretty that smile is actually or how lovable a woman she is.The moment she saw Park Tae Shin, she felt something snap suddenly inside her.

Han Seung Jae 


Gwanghae University Hospital Chief of Internal Medicine & Certified Physician of Subspecialty for Critical Care Medicine. Though neat and elegant as if he redressed his appearance moment ago, but he’s not an aloof man that only cares about one’s class. He is easygoing enough to quietly pick up a dirty rag to help out a hospital cleaning lady, and squats down in front of a shabby rural patient to put (his) shoes on. He is a hidden son (illegitimate son) of chairman Yi (Lee) Doo Gyeong of Gwang Hae Group. He doesn’t have particularly strong resentment towards the situation where he had to take after his mother’s surname. His biggest objective is to be acknowledged by his father as a son who does not fall short in his capabilities amongst all the outstanding pool of chairman’s offspring. In order to achieve his objective, he develops the cross-functional team into the best medical team in the nation, and rallies the internal influences within the hospital to use as a platform to become the director of the hospital in the future. He is the only one to precede Seo Joo Young in becoming the youngest medical staff. Though he doesn’t raise his voice once with his so called sister-in-law Shin Hye Soo, maintains a taut and tense relationship. He does not forget that he must defeat Shin Hye Soo in order to survive.

Choi Ah Jin


3rd year surgical resident at Gwanghae University Hospital.A lanky height, a skinny figure, a brisk gait, a silky short-cut hair. She has a boyish charm of looking like a captain of girls' middle school basketball team. She is energetic and cheerful. If you hear a loud laughter in the hospital lounge, it's her.Seo Joo Young is her idol and a role model. She envies her who is clever and have a strong character while being feminine. Even though Seo Joo Young criticize harshly by treating her as an irresponsible and incompetent doctor right now, she wants to become the junior colleague who gets acknowledge from Joo Young someday.At first, she thinks of Park Tae Shin's mischievous behavior strangely but as time passes, she started feel attracted to him.

Kim Sung Woo


3rd Year Resident for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. With an appearance like a sculpture, wherever he goes, his specialty is in catching the eyes of girls. He has a good manner and takes quick notice of the surrounding doctors. 
To the nurses he has a reputation for good looks and at the same time is responsible for taking on the role of Ah Jin's guardian angel, around her he always helps. 
He has a one sided love for Ah Jin, whom he follows to support in Top Team, but it seems like Ah Jin's heart is being more and more drawn towards Tae Shin, and so his heart aches.

According to korean media Lee Min Jung is in talks to be the female lead of the drama!!!

Her management confirmed that she's thinking carefully her decision and reading the script ...  but the decision is not made yet 
As a big fan of her I hope she can take the role .... it would be nice to see a different side of her , after a marvellous rom com like All About My Romance a touching medical drama would be awesome!

Rhee is looking into MBC’s medical drama tentatively titled “Medical Top Team” (translated title), her agency ESteam Entertainment’s official told TenAsia on Thursday.

According to the official, it hasn’t been long since she got the script so she is currently reviewing it. The role she has been offered to play is the main female character who is a doctor.

So far, actor Kwone Sang-woo has confirmed his appearance in the show as male lead Park Tae-shin who is a surgeon, an official with MBC said separately.

The drama will show on Wednesdays and Thursdays and premiere in October after “Two Weeks” (translated title) ends its run.

DRAMA CASTING & NEWSLee Min-jung offered lead in Medical Top Teamby javabeans | July 18, 2013 | 13 Comments


More fall drama news: MBC has already scored Kwon Sang-woo as the lead for its upcoming drama Medical Top Team, and now the producers have extended the offer for leading lady to Lee Min-jung. She has confirmed receiving the offer, and is currently “positively considering” the drama.

I see that Medical Top Team is continuing our current trend of baldly literal drama titles (see also: Good Doctor, I Hear Your Voice), since the whole premise is right there in the name. It’s a straightforward setup wherein a team of doctors at the top of their respective fields are gathered on one team to treat patients.

Lee Min-jung’s last two dramas were flops (All About My Romance, Big), but it’s been a while since she was on an MBC show. The timing does seem rather tight, though, since she is currently busy preparing for her August wedding to Lee Byung-heon. With Medical Top Team set for an October premiere, she wouldn’t get much of a honeymoon before jumping back into the thick of shoots. But I guess this is a couple that’ll just have to get used to coordinating jam-packed schedules; Lee Byung-heon is also set to begin filming his upcoming martial-arts sageuk revenge movie soon after the wedding.

This drama comes from the PD of MBC’s hit The Moon That Embraces the Sun and the writer of Brain, which is why it’s got some buzz going in. The hope is that this drama will take the best of both worlds, melding the smart medical stuff of Brain with Moon/Sun’s addictive, popular appeal. Which would be way better than the reverse, where you combine their respective flaws and come up with juvenile doctors obsessed with getting laid. We can turn to Grey’s Anatomy for that, thanks.

Medical Top Team will follow Lee Jun-ki’s upcoming Two Weeks and will premiere in October.

Lee Min Jung


Lee Min Jung was wrapping up the political comedy "All About My Romance" when she and actor Lee Byung Hun decided to get married and started plannign their wedding.

Korea's Power Couple will marry on August 10 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul. More than a thousand guests will attend the wedding. Plenty of celebrities have been invited since between them Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung probably know everyone who is anyone in the kdrama and kmovie world.

But the honeymoon will be short as both Lee Min Jung and her new husband have plans to return to work.

Lee Byung Hun only recently returned from filming and promoting the Hollywood blockbuster "Red 2" with co-stars Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren. Shortly after the wedding, he will begin work on the Korean historical martial arts film "Memories of the Sword" with co-stars Jeon Do Yeon and Kim Go Eun.

Lee Min Jung has been offered a role of Seo Joo Yeong, a doctor in the upcoming MBC medical drama "Medical Top Team." The drama is about a team of doctors who are the best at their respective specialties. While they attempt to find the most effective treatments for their patients, love conflicts and hospital power struggles complicate their plans.

Lee Min Jung's leading man in "Medical Top Team" will be actor Kwon Sang Woo, who played a man out for revenge in the recent drama "Queen of Ambition." He is an award-winning actor who was recognized for his work in the series "Daemul." In the new medical drama he will play a warm but somewhat blunt cancer specialist.

One of the reasons that Lee Byung Hun and Lee Min Jung broke up early in their dating relationship had to do with his crowded schedule. He was a big star and she was a rookie actress. Despite the fact that her last two dramas, "All About My Romance" and "Big" were not huge hits, she has become a star in her own right and now has a busy acting schedule of her own to contend with. Despite their early concerns about managing two careers and a love life, the couple now feels confident enough to take on the challenge.

Kim Do Hoon, who directed the popular drama "The Moon Embraces The Sun," is directing the medical drama. Koon Kyeong Ah, who wrote the drama "Brain," is the writer.

The show will premiere in October, following the drama "Two Weeks" with Lee Jun Ki.

Oh Yeon-seo joins cast of Medical Top Team

Medical Top Team, the new medical drama from the brain behind Brain and the style behind The Moon That Embraces the Sun, is busily filling the ranks of its hospital staff. Actress Oh Yeon-seo is the latest addition to join leading man Kwon Sang-woo and an as-yet-undetermined lead actress. The offer is out to Lee Min-jung, but she’s still unconfirmed.
Oh Yeon-seo has been enjoying a nice wave of popularity since playing one of the sisters in weekend family drama You Who Rolled in Unexpectedly and starring in the daily sitcom Oh Ja-ryung Is Coming. It looks like she’ll be playing a pretty big role in the new primetime Wednesday-Thursday drama — there are conspicuously four members of this top team. Hm, it’s almost as if someone wanted to write a love square set in a hospital. How ’bout that?
The drama is about the best and brightest from each medical specialty gathered together to work as a team in one hospital. Don’t they know that geniuses don’t play well together? Kwon Sang-woo plays the confident genius bad-boy-on-the-outside, good-boy-on-the-inside surgeon who leads the team. Oh Yeon-seo will play the maknae, a thoracic surgeon with only two years of experience under her belt. She’ll be the spirited young member of the team with big hopes and dreams. The production plans to finish casting the other lead roles in the coming week, and will start shooting in August.
Medical Top Team follows Two Weeks and premieres in October on MBC.
