[Video] Kim Seung Woo Says SNSD’s Sooyoung is One Good Actress
Kim Seung Woo, lead of the tvN medical drama The Third Hospital, didn’t hold back on his praise for Girls’ Generation (SNSD) member Sooyoung.
Kim Seung Woo and Sooyoung recently held an interview with enews and talked about how it felt to be on set for the drama.
Kim Seung Woo introduced the drama as “a dream hospital that brings together traditional and modern medicine.”
Kim Seung Woo plays a surgeon while Sooyoung plays his violist patient. The relationship between the two won’t be one of love, however, as Kim Seung Woo will enter a relationship with his junior Kim Min Jung and Sooyoung will be in love with the oriental doctor Oh Ji Ho.
Kim Seung Woo joked about why he chose the piece, “I said I would do it because I heard I would be in a love line with Sooyoung, but I got the synopsis and saw we were merely to appear as patient and doctor.”
Sooyoung said, “In my case, I was pressured. I had to work with a very prominent senior, which made me worry I would do the piece harm. I’m being loved as the youngest member on set now. I’m thankful everyone’s taking such great care of me. Now, I can act comfortably.”
“She’s being modest,” Kim Seung Woo answered. “I saw her act, and I thought she would rank about second place out of the four main cast members.”
He then finished jokingly, “Our drama talks about both oriental medicine and Western medicine, along with the conflicts between the two. The most important thing, however, is that Sooyoung will be appearing in her first medical drama.”
Sooyoung added, “Please look forward to our drama, which contains dreams and sacrifices.”
The Third Hospital is about the rivalry between a genius neurosurgeon Kim Doo Hyun (Kim Seung Woo) and the equally prominent oriental doctor Kim Seung Hyun (Oh Ji Ho). It will air its first episode on September 5.
