“The Heirs” actors Park Shin Hye and Park Hyung Sik are in talks to reunite in a new medical K-drama.
On November 30th, media outlet Ten Asia shared that Park Shin Hye and Park Hyung Sik will pair up for the upcoming medical K-drama titled “Doctor Slump” (literal translation).
Both of their agencies responded to the casting reports. According to Park Shin Hye’s agency Salt Entertainment, the actress is positively considering the casting offer. Park Hyung Sik’s side also commented and revealed that the idol actor is also reviewing the k-drama positively.
“Doctor Slump” is a romantic comedy series that will tell the stories of doctors who are currently experiencing slumps. The K-drama will showcase how they will resuscitate and return to their lives.
Park Shin Hye received the offer to play the role of Nam Ha Neul. Park Hyung Sik got the offer to star as Yeo Jeong Woo.
If ever Park Hyung Sik decided to star in the series, this will be his first ever doctor character since his debut. Meanwhile, this will be the second time that Park Shin Hye will star in a medical series.
There are no official details yet on the broadcast date of “Doctor Slump.”
If Park Shin Hye and Park Hyung Sik confirm their casting, this will be their reunion after 10 years. The two worked together as classmates in the 2013 hit series “The Heirs.”
This will possibly be the comeback of Park Shin Hye in the K-drama world after getting married and giving birth. She last starred in the 2021 K-drama “Sisyphus: The Myth.” 2022 was a remarkable year for the actress as she got married in January and gave birth to her first son in May.
Meanwhile, if Park Hyung Sik confirms his casting, this will be his second upcoming k-drama. He will also lead the upcoming series “Youth, Climb the Barrier” with Jeon So Nee, Yoon Jong Seok, Pyo Ye Jin, Lee Jong Hyuk, and Jung Shi Woo. He last starred in the 2022 Disney+ series “Soundtrack #1.”
