The casting is underway for the SBS medical drama Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim 2 and another name thrown in the mix is Lee Sung Kyung for the female lead. If she accepts it will be her second time playing doctor (har har) after Doctors in 2016. Her role would be a second year heart surgeon who grew up as a student genius but once she gets into an OR she freezes. It’s through working with Doctor Kim that she learns to become a doctor in practice. Initially the role was in discussion with Jeon So Nee but it fell through so now Lee Sung Kyung gets a chance to put on her scrubs and white coat again. Romantic Doctor is scheduled for December 2019 airing.
