Moon Chae-won set to romance Joo-won in Green Scalpel

I was half-expecting her to turn it down, but it turns out Moon Chae-won (Nice Guy) has confirmed her casting for KBS’s new medical drama Green Scalpel after all. She’ll be starring with Joo-won (Gaksital) and Joo Sang-wook (TEN), taking on her first doctor role.

Joo-won plays the main character, a surgical genius who has a form of autism and a childlike personality. Moon Chae-won is cast as a principled and committed doctor who was educated at a top school and recognized for her skills early on. She’s a pediatric surgical fellow who doesn’t hesitate to say what she means, even to her superiors. That’s what she did in Nice Guy so I can easily see her pulling off that kind of authoritativeness, though maybe with a softer touch this time around.

Moon will have romantic story threads with both leading men, because this is K-drama, where nobody can get a job done without falling in love first. That means lots of angsty moments for our sharp and skilled assistant professor character played by Joo Sang-wook, whose affection for the heroine goes unrequited. Poor guy. At least he’ll have his brilliance and his looks to fall back on. Meanwhile, she’ll find her feelings increasingly stirring for Joo-won, the warm-hearted and “unique” resident with whom she’ll share a “sweet loveline.”

Written by the scriptwriter of cable series God’s Quiz and directed by the PD of Ojakkyo Brothers and Goodbye Solo, Green Scalpel is being touted as a warm human drama—so not super light, but also not dark and heavy. I expect small moments and a focus on building relationships, which could work well for this kind of story, though I’m kind of bummed to have actors I like so much taking a drama that doesn’t pique my interest all that much. Still, Joo-won’s unusual character opens us up to more narrative possibilities, given his personality quirks and his autism. We’ll have to see whether that’s enough to set this apart from the other medical dramas heading our way.

Green Scalpel will follow Monday-Tuesday’s Shark and premiere in August.
