Will Lee Jong-suk become ‘Stranger’?

Actor Lee Jong-suk is considering taking part in a future SBS drama, tentatively named “Doctor Stranger.”

Lee’s agency, Wellmade Entertainment, said that the actor has been offered a role in the drama and has received a script. 

However, the agency declined to comment further in regard to the drama. 

The medical series will tell the story of a doctor named Park Hun from North Korea who ran away from the repressive regime. Lee was offered the role of Park.

The drama is scheduled to go on the air in March, after “One Warm Word” completes its run.

Quite curious if he will accept the role,not so much into medical dramas and we had our fair share of them the past year but the role looks intresting if we pass the genius,we know dramaland loves genius but i guess it's already a normal thing so curious about the casting progress

1441518_245012968995278_1962876972_n.jpgLee Jong-seok considers new medical drama

Yay, Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice) might be coming back to dramaland! Thank goodness because I really really missed him for those 2.5 seconds he was gone. The downside is that he’s considering a medical drama, which doesn’t excite me in the least. But who knows; this one’s got a premise that might shake things up a bit. It’s called Doctor Stranger (stranger meaning foreign, alien), and it’s being shopped at SBS for a possible spring broadcast to follow Warm Words.

On the upside, the series is being produced by PD Jin Hyuk of City Hunter and Master’s Sun, and writer Park Jin-woo of Conspiracy in the Court. They’re courting Lee Jong-seok to play the lead, which would be a Prosecutor Princess reunion for him and PD Jin Hyuk. But his reps have made it clear it’s far from a done deal, and that it’s just one of many projects he’s considering. I’m not sure I’m behind him taking on a medical drama, not least of which because he’d look like Doogie Howser in a lab coat. Unless that’s the point.

The drama is about a North Korean doctor who defects and ends up in the South, and it tells the story of his life as a stranger in a foreign land. If he signs on, Lee Jong-seok will headline as the titular defector doctor. I’m not sure what kind of setting that means for him as a doc—does he practice medicine in a South Korean hospital? Because that seems unlikely. It’d be fun if they did what Covertly, Grandly did with spies, and made him a small town doctor practicing on the down-low. At least the North/South divide sets us up for a much richer conflict than just another medical drama about a super doc… I hope?

Doctor Stranger is angling for a March broadcast on SBS.

Park Hae-jin in talks to join Doctor StrangerParkHaeJin2.jpg

So remember that North-Korean-doc-in-South-Korea medical drama Doctor Strangerthat’s courting Lee Jong-seok to headline? It’s still angling for a March broadcast on SBS (though with God’s Gift – 14 Days premiering in February, it might not be till April). Lee Jong-seok is still considering, and now so is Park Hae-jin (You From Another Star). It’s weird to see someone in a current drama lining up his next project the week after his new show premieres, but can more of Park Hae-jin really be a bad thing?

Lee Jong Suk is reported to be favorably looking through his next project: a medical drama.

According to broadcast insiders on December 5, Lee Jong Suk is planning to join the cast for a new SBS drama “Doctor Foreigner” (working title), which is to air next year.

Lee Jong Suk will be playing the role of Park Hoon, who gets kidnapped to North Korea with his father, who is also a doctor, and grows up to become a doctor himself. If Lee Jong Suk confirms his casting, this will be his first medical drama.

Lee Jong Suk’s agency commented, “It is true that we received the offer and are looking through the script but a decision has not been made yet.”

Park Hoon is a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon, who escapes to South Korea after being kidnapped to the North. Although he is a genius doctor and works for one of the best hospitals in South Korea, he is not able to be listed as an official doctor because he is a “foreigner.”

“Doctor Foreigner” will be directed by Jin Hyuk, who has worked on “On Air,” “Shining Inheritance,” “The Chaser” and “Master’s Sun” in the past.

Since Lee Jong Suk seems to be climbing higher and higher in popularity, many are interested in his next steps.

“Doctor Foreigner” is planning to air in March of next year.

Oh this looks interested as well and hoping a good lead actress fit the roll and seeing that the director who helped in The Master's Sun did a wonder job with that drama so I'm looking forward seeing how this one plays out as well :)>-

Source: Star

The greatest ‘trend guy’ in 2013 is going to challenge himself with a medical drama.

On the 5th, according to many industry sources, Lee Jong Suk has been slated to star in the new SBS mon-Tues drama ‘Dr. Foreigner’. (Writer Park Jinwoo, director Jin Hyuk).

In ‘Dr. Foreigner’, Lee Jong Suk will be playing the role of Park Hoon, who was kidnapped to North Korea along with his father who was also a doctor. While living there, Park’s father trained him to become a doctor. If his casting is confirmed, this would be Lee Jong Suk’s first medical drama.

His representative agency has stated that “we have received the offer for this drama, but we have not confirmed to accept the offer yet”. They also remain cautious, expressing that “there are other dramas and movies we are considering”.

In the drama, the genius brain surgeon Park Hoon managed to leave North Korea and works at the best hospital in Korea, but finds himself to be different from all the other factions in the hospital, thus living as a complete foreigner. He has left a lover back in the North.

The collaboration is highly anticipated by industry insiders, since it is between Jin Hyuk PD and Lee Jong Suk, the 20s actor who has garnered much attention from ‘I Hear Your Voice’, ‘The Face Reader’ and ‘No Breathing’. Jin Hyuk PD was the director for such famous works as ‘On Air’, ‘Wind Garden’, ‘Shining Inheritance’, ‘Master’s Sun’… a name that surely inspires trust in viewers.

'Dr. Foreigner' is about the main character who is completely isolated and his relationship with the hospital and other doctors. It will be a medical drama that is rife with mystery and tension. It will be written by Park Jinwoo, who wrote the script for 'Seoul Farewell', and will be aired Mon-Tue timeslot starting around March of this year.

Doctor Stranger: Lee Jong-seok in, Park Min-young outby girlfridayLeeJongSeok2.jpg
Casting confirmations are in for SBS’s spring Monday-Tuesday drama Doctor Stranger, with a yes from Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice) to play the hero, and a no from Park Min-young (Dr. Jin), leaving him without a leading lady for now. Is it wrong that I care more about whether or not he’ll still have that blonde hair for the drama? It’s breaking my heart, that hair. He couldn’t possibly keep it to play a North Korean defector surgeon, right? Just nod and tell me it’ll all be okay.
