After being in talks for the lead role in SBS‘s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Yong Pal,” actor Joo Won has confirmed his casting.

A representative from his agency shared, “Joo Won has confirmed his role in ‘Yong Pal.’ The filming schedule is still being coordinated.”

Joo Won will be acting as Kim Tae Hyun who is a third-year general surgery resident at Hanshin Hospital. It has been two years since his last role as a doctor in 2013’s “Good Doctor.” Kim Tae Hyun is the type of doctor who can save patients’ lives during dangerous surgeries and is extremely gifted. However, he is a rude snob who would do anything for money.

The actor has primarily acted in KBS dramas including “King of Baking, Kim Takgu,” “Bridal Mask,” “Good Doctor,” “Tomorrow Cantabile,” and more. He has also acted in MBC‘s “7th Grade Civil Servant.” Many are curious as to how he will do in an SBS drama.

“Yong Pal” is scheduled to air after “Mask” ends. The drama will tell the story of a doctor who suffers from debt because of his younger sister’s kidney dialysis treatment. The first episode is slated to air in August.
