*October 2021 Update*
We have another K-drama to look forward to and the cast is just...*chef's kiss*. Yup, we will be seeing Kim Bum and Rain together in the fantasy drama Ghost Doctor! Here's everything we know about the new show (so far):
What's the story of Ghost Doctor?
According to Soompi, it's a fantasy + medical drama that will focus on two very different doctors "who end up combining bodies and spirits." Get this: These two doctors will *not* be able to leave their hospital and their patients even after their deaths.
The production company behind Ghost Doctor also created the hit dramas Master's Sun, She Was Pretty, What's Wrong With Secretary Kim, and Encounter, so it looks like we're in for a wild and *romantic* ride! Soompi adds that it will be directed by Boo Sung Chul of The Heirs.
Who's in the cast?
Rain as Cha Young Min
Where we last saw him: Welcome 2 Life (2019)
