More casting news for the forthcoming MBC medical drama “Medical Top Team.” Singer Alex, vocalist for Clazziquai Project, joins the cast as a doctor named Bae Sang Kyu in the Department of Radiology. Actress and former Baby V.O.X member Lee Hee Jin also joins the drama as perfectionist Yoo Hye Ran, a nurse in the surgery department.

Alex’s character is described as a sweet, smiling handsome doctor that is able to charm his patients and treat them tenderly. This facade hides his dark sides, as a gambler and a man with ambition. In addition, Bae Sang Kyu is keen to claim the right-hand position to the Chief of Surgery, Jang Yong Seop (played by Ahn Nae Sang), and is jumping on the fray of the hospital’s power struggle. He is also portrayed to develop a love line with surgical nurse Minji (played by Choi Woori.)

Lee Hee Jin will be a supportive colleague to Kwon Sang Woo‘s character, Park Tae Shin, recognizing his talent.

Alex will show a different side to his acting in “Medical Top Team,” having showcased himself as an actor in roles in previous dramas “Pasta,” “Smile, Donghae” and “A Thousand Days’ Promise.” Lee Hee Jin is currently in tvN’s “Monstar,” and has previously acted in tvN’s “Ten 2” and MBC”s “Horse Doctor,” among others. 

“Medical Top Team” also stars Kwon Sang Woo, Jung Ryeo Won, Joo Ji Hoon, Oh Yeon Seo, Kim Young Ae,and SHINee’s Minho. It is aimed at an October premiere, replacing “Two Weeks.”
