Kim So Yeon new drama “Dr. Champ”



Kim So Yeon will appear in SBS upcoming drama titled “Dr. Champ”. She will play female lead, named Kim Yeon Woo, a doctor. The male lead will be Jung Gyu Woon (Women of The Sun, Hateful but Once Again, Loving You Thousand Times).

This drama will be aired around October after I am Legend finished.

Kim So Yeon who gain popularity after her perfect appearance as North Korean agent in IRIS , just finished her latest SBS drama “Prosecutor Princess“. We should give praise to Kim So Yeon for her role selection. She didn’t do stereotype. After played great as a spy in thriller drama IRIS, she became a prosecutor in “Prosecutor Princess”, kind of a fun drama, and now she transform herself to be a doctor.

Dr. Champ is a sport medical drama, story about love, friendship, conflict and reconciliation , dream and hope. The doctor, Kim Yeon Woo, is a perfectionist doctor who is in charge of the national representative athletes at the Korea National Training Center who sometimes clashes with the athletes.

The male lead (Jung Gyu Won) is a national judo athlete. A most promising judo athlete ten years ago, but made mistake at an international competition.


I will definitely watch it for Kim So-yeon Unnie

Cha Ye-ryun, Shindong added to Dr. Champ



Medical sports drama Dr. Champ sure has been busy casting, and is pretty close to done with these latest additions: Cha Ye-ryun takes one of the lead roles (technically she’s lead #4), while Super Junior’s Shindong has come onboard as a judo player.

The drama first secured its leads in Kim So-yeon (IRIS) and Uhm Tae-woong (Queen Seon-deok), who play doctors at the Taereung sports facility (she’s new to the place, he’s crotchety in the mold of Dr. House), and judo player Jung Kyeo-woon (Loving You a Thousand Times).

It followed that by casting Song Ji-eun (Chuno) as Jung Kyeo-woon’s sister-in-law and young Kang So-ra (Fourth Period Murder Mystery) as an Olympic-level swimmer. The former is a supportive figure to Jung, while the latter develops a crush on him.

Cha Ye-ryun also adds some romantic complications to the mix, playing a swimming coach who becomes Kim So-yeon’s rival for Uhm Tae-woong’s love. Something tells me it won’t be much of a rivalry.

Generally, the main pairing of Kim So-yeon and Uhm Tae-woong makes this a must-watch for me despite not being sold on the plot. However, I’m not thrilled to see that the director is PD Park Hyung-ki, who did Get Karl Oh Soo Jung, a thoroughly mediocre (or worse) drama.

Dr. Champ will follow I Am Legend (which follows Coffee House).

Jung Seok-won cast in Dr. Champ



Jung Seok-won (Shining Inheritance, High Kick Through the Roof) has just been added to the cast of Dr. Champ, as a top Judo athlete. And well, if the picture below is any indication, he definitely looks the part.


The SBS Monday-Tuesday drama stars Kim So-yeon and Uhm Tae-woong as doctors in an Olympic training facility. Jung Seok-won will be playing the role of Sang-bo, a top judo athlete who has already made a name for himself in the Asia Games and the Olympics. He will be a direct rival for Ji-heon, played by Jung Kyeo-woon.

Jung is actually a former stuntman from an action school, and is skilled in scuba diving, hapkido, taekwondo, fencing, and judo. Thus he will be shooting most of the stunts for his character himself.

He’s also starring in the Hwang Yoo-shik film The Beast, an action adventure about a trooper who rescues a kidnapped model.

Dr. Champ airs September 27, after I Am Legend.

Judo champ Jung Kyeo-woon



SBS’s sports-medical series Dr. Champ is set at the Olympic athletic training facility, and thus the athlete characters are at the elite level. That means that Jung Kyeo-woon (Loving You a Thousand Times) has been getting busy with judo training in order to portray a character on the national team. Since being cast in early July, Jung has been spending 6 hours a day in the gym.

His character was something of a rising star ten years ago, but he’d been plagued with injuries and is now stuck in a tough spot as the promising guy who never delivered, the constant No. 2. He forms a romantic storyline with his doctor at the training village, played by Kim So-yeon (Prosecutor Princess), who also has a loveline with crotchety doctor Uhm Tae-woong (Queen Seon-deok), who in turn has another romantic thing going on with a swim coach (Cha Ye-ryun).

Jung is athletic to begin with, so his judo coach said that his training is proceeding at a swift pace. Jung explained that he’s played a judo athlete in the past, but he’d never learned the sport intensively, so naturally he’s finding the work tough. Even so, his coach praised his passionate commitment and diligent effort.

Dr. Champ will air following I Am Legend, and premieres September 27.

Shindong puts on the judo moves for Dr. Champ



Super Junior’s Shindong is one of the supporting cast members of the upcoming medical-sports drama Dr. Champ, which is set at Korea’s Olympic training facility and focuses on the athletes who train there, as well as the doctors who treat them. Uhm Tae-woong is the grumpy House-like senior doctor, while Kim So-yeon plays the new transfer.

While the drama will feature athletes in several different disciplines (swimming, for example — Cha Ye-ryun is a coach and Kang So-ra one of the swimmers she trains), it seems like judo will get a particular emphasis. Not only is that the specialty of series lead Jung Kyeo-woon, but there have been several actors cast as judo athletes. (In addition to Jung and Shindong, there’s also Jung Seok-won, as well as newcomer Im Sung-kyu.)


On September, while at the Yongin University gym for judo practice, Shindong said, “It helps my acting a lot that I practiced judo in elementary school.” Assistant director Nam Tae-jin also agreed that his prior experience has helped Shindong capture realism in his moves; he added that the director, PD Park Hyung-ki, decided to cast people who’d had some experience with the sport.

Dr. Champ premieres on Monday, September 27, following I Am Legend.




And here are a still of new actor Im Sung-kyu:
