Park Min Young to Team Up with Song Seung Hun, Kim Jae Joong for ‘Time Slip Dr. Jin’
Park Min Young will be joining the MBC drama Time Slip Dr. Jin.
The actress will take on the roles of the talented physician Yoo Mi Na in the present, and of Hong Young Rae, the daughter of a fallen yangban (aristocrat) household, in Joseon. Park Min Young is thus expected to fill the small screen with the two similar, yet different, roles.
Yoo Mi Na is bright and outgoing, and is so emotional she has been nicknamed ‘Mad Mi Na’. Mi Na, however, has a warm heart that won’t let her pass by anyone in a difficult situation without offering some form of help. Hong Young Rae of Joseon is a careful, strong and warm woman, and shows a motherly love stronger than anyone else’s.
Director Han Hee of Dr. Jin said, “I believe that Park Min Young is the perfect fit for the heroine role of Dr. Jin because she’s been in period pieces such as Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Princess Ja Myung Go, and modern pieces like City Hunter and Man of Honor. She was recognized for her acting skills through a steady career, so I expect her to be great in both modern and period pieces.”
Dr. Jin is a drama adaptation of a Japanese manga of the same title, and is about how the most talented surgeon in modern day Korea, Jin Hyuk (Song Seung Hun), suddenly finds himself in the Joseon Period. The cast also includes Kim Jae Joong and Lee Bum Soo.
