SBS has announced that its upcoming “Doctor Stop”, originally named “Cain and Abel”, will premiere in November. This drama casting So Ji Sub will not only have to pit itself against a star dazzling “East of Eden” but also against Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin’s “The World They Live In”.

“Doctor Stop” is a hospital-themed drama talking how doctors conspire against each other in order to climb up the position ladder. In response to the name change from “Cain and Abel” to “Doctor Stop”, a representative from the production company explained, “Our original plan was to find another top male actor to play as the rival of So Ji Sub. Hence, we named it as ‘Cain and Abel’ in the beginning. However, we discovered later that it was pretty difficult to do so and we dropped from two male lead to only one. Correspondingly, the title was also changed to ‘Doctor Stop’”.

An on-screen battle between two good friend, So Ji Sub and Song Seung Hun, is about to begin in 2 months time. The cast for “Doctor Stop” has already been selected and the drama will begin shooting in October.

It seems like there will be a fierce battle for viewers in November. “East of Eden”, “The World They Live In” and “Doctor Stop”. Which one should I watch first? I’m leaning more towards “The World They Live In” at this moment because of Song Hye Kyo! Though this may change over time.

So Jisub will be launching a previously unreleased song from his hiphop album titled 'Project G'.

As a surprise gift for his fans, So Jisub will be releasing this song, titled “Foolish Love” on his birthday, which falls on 4 November.

So Jisub showed his hidden talent in rapping when he released his single “A Lonely life” in August this year. The song received great response and became a hotly discussed topic. The new song to be released will similarly be a focus of the public’s attention.

The release of the song “Foolish love” was delayed during the planning of So’s digital single, as “A Lonely life” was decided to be the title track.

The hip-hop style song with its distinct style featuring harmonica tune, fuses the majestic melody - often found only in drama OST – with hip-hop element. This song with its unique style is currently under post-production.

So Jisub, who will be receiving the Best Actor award at the 28th Korean Film Critics’ Society Award to be held on 5 Nov 08, is currently making preparations for his next work.
