Hot off his popularity from his last drama, Best Love, Cha Seung Won is reportedly in talks with PD Jin Hyuk and the production staff for the upcoming SBS medical drama, The Third Hospital. While rumors about him being cast and not cast for this drama have been floating around for months, a representative from the production company said in an interview today that Cha Seung Won is indeed onboard for this project.
Most of you know PD Jin Hyuk already, since he’s directed hit dramas such as Prosecutor Princess, The Painter in the Wind, and Shining Inheritance, but he’s probably even more famous for his most recent project, City Hunter.
One thing that you can definitely count on for this drama is the pretty visuals, which is something I remember from watching the first few episodes of Painter of the Wind. I never finished that drama because I couldn’t stand Park Shi Yang — still can’t stand him to this day — but in the earlier episodes, I remember thinking to myself that the show was absolutely gorgeous. I also loved his directing flair that I saw in City Hunter, which was slick but not flashy. And I don’t remember much about his directing in Prosecutor Princess, for I was paying too much attention to Park Shi Hoo and Kim So Yeon‘s on-screen chemistry. They were hot.
Whether Cha Seung Won’s officially cast in this drama or not, I just hope to see him again soon. I can totally imagine him as a hot doctor like House, who’s my fave. Hey doctor, can you do a check up on me because I’m *cough* sick. 😛
The drama hopes to air on March 14, 2012 on SBS.
