JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong will face off against actor Song Seung Hun in the new TV series Dr. Jin.
Kim will play the role of a military officer of Joseon Dynasty named Kim Gyung Tak in the series, which will air in the first half of 2012.
The character that Kim will play is the highest-ranking military officer from a renowned military official family, generation after generation. He is a self-respecting person with a highly competitive spirit, but he is very devoted to one woman, who he has loved since he was a little boy.
He will face off against Song, who will play the role of a doctor named Jin Hyuk from the 21st century.
Kim previously appeared on SBS’s series Protect the Boss and received many favorable reviews. He will appear in the historical series for the first time and show off his dignified charismatic part with well-honed martial arts.
The series is very unique medical drama about a doctor, who is from modern-day Korea but goes back to the Joseon Dynasty in the 1860s.
The series is based on a popular Japanese cartoon, which created a huge sensation when it was turned into a Japanese series in 2009.
The production company, Lee Kim Production, for the series says, “Kim, who successfully appeared on Protect the Boss, will show a different side of him through the series. Please keep your eyes on Kim’s change in the series and support him.”
