After 5 years since Doctor, its stars’ positions have changed dramatically; let’s take a look at where they are now.
Doctors may not be the best medical drama, but it’s definitely a hot one and worth watching when it was first released. Doctor shows Kim Rae Won’s great comeback, Park Shin Hye’s transformation and Lee Sung Kyung’s improvement. After 5 years since the drama’s release, the position of these stars has changed a lot, let’s see how they are now.
Kim Rae Won
Doctors is a very unforgettable project in Kim Rae Won‘s career because it gained him so much attention. His character Hong Ji Hong in the drama is a real gentleman who is both mature, sophisticated and talented. Both a talented doctor and a passionate teacher, Hong Ji Hong has become a male idol in the hearts of female fans throughout 2016.
After Doctors, Kim Rae Won continued to try his hand at different roles on the big screen and the small screen. Currently, Kim Rae Won always chooses challenging roles to break through himself. In 2021, he reappeared in LUCA: The Beginning, the fantasy action film. As Zi O – a man with supernatural powers, Kim Rae Won gave a convincing performance.
Successful in his career but at the age of 40, he still has not found the soulmate of his life.
Park Shin Hye
The character Yoo Hye Jung in Doctors is a role that marked a completely different Park Shin Hye. She had a big change in both appearance and image and has successfully conquered the public. In this movie, Park Shin Hye was much thinner than before. With an attractive and cool image, she played the role of a sassy girl with martial arts. Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won’s chemistry was so amazing that fans love this couple.
After Doctors, I thought Park Shin Hye would completely switch to a more mature and seductive image like the character Hye Jung, but unfortunately she returned to a rather monotonous acting style. In both new dramas after Doctors, Memories Of Alhambra and Sisyphus: The Myth, Park Shin Hye received mixed reactions for her performance. Even though she participated in the horror movie The Call, when the work was released, Park Shin Hye was completely inferior to her female co-star, who is a brand new face.
Her career has slowed down, but Park Shin Hye is still the top star of the entertainment industry, she is highly respected and invited to participate in big projects. In December 2021, the beauty born in 1990 suddenly announced that she would marry her boyfriend, actor Choi Tae Joon, in early 2022. Park Shin Hye is also pregnant with her first child.
Yoon Kyun Sang
When participating in Doctors Yoon Kyun Sang only played a supporting role, but also attracted a lot of attention, having the opportunity to develop more in his career. Yoon Kyun Sang’s character Jung Young Do is a guy who has both good looks and a good family background and is smart, so he gets the same attention as the male lead. This is a stepping stone for Yoon Kyun Sang to be able to get the lead role.
However, after Doctors, his career did not develop like the two co-stars. Yoon Kyun Sang then received the main role, but his later works did not attract attention.
Lee Sung Kyung
In 2016, when participating in Doctors, Lee Sung Kyung was still a newbie and did not have a female lead role in her career. With the perfect performance in the role of Jin Seo Woo, she successfully went one step further and became the most remarkable female supporting character on the Korean small screen that year. Undeniably outstanding beauty, superior temperament and perfect body are the strengths that help Lee Sung Kyung attract attention. But above all, her good acting ability paved the way for her to improve very quickly.
After Doctors, Lee Sung Kyung also received the main roles. Thanks to that, her reputation skyrocketed. 5 years after Doctors, it can be said that Lee Sung Kyung is the person who has made the biggest step forward among the actors of the drama and her current position is even on par with Park Shin Hye.
Lee Sung Kyung will soon return with Shooting Star, a drama about showbiz that promises to be extremely attractive, following her appearance in Dr. Romantic 2. And, perhaps because she is so preoccupied with her work, Lee Sung Kyung hasn’t been involved in any dating rumors since her breakup with Nam Joo Hyuk. Lee Sung Kyung is still young, and her career is thriving, so it’s understandable that she doesn’t want to focus on love.
