Rain And Kim Bum Talk About The Challenges Of Playing Each Other’s Characters In “Ghost Doctor”
On January 3, tvN’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “ Ghost Doctor ” held an online press conference with Rain (Jung Ji Hoon), Kim Bum , Uee , Apink’s Son Naeun , and director Boo Sung Cheol.
“Ghost Doctor” is a medical fantasy drama about a genius thoracic surgeon named Cha Young Min (Rain) and a silver-spoon resident Go Seung Tak, who could not be more different in backgrounds, skills, and personalities but end up combining bodies and spirits.
About taking on a drama in the “medical fantasy” genre,” director Boo Sung Cheol said, “As a director, you want to try different genres. This is a combination genre of the medical and fantasy genres. In order to bring the fantasy to life, getting the medical part right is important, so I worked hard to prepare.”
About casting Rain and Kim Bum, he said, “The two matched really well. If Rain is the engine, then Kim Bum is the headlights.”
Rain said, “I think the drama will have the feeling of a respirator. I used to watch ‘General Hospital’ and stay up all night watching it. I want ‘Ghost Doctor’ to be a drama like that. I have a lot of respect for the director for creating such a vision. When I saw the teaser, even the sound had a fairy-tale quality. It’s a family-oriented drama, so everyone can enjoy it.”
Kim Bum said, “I had to act as if I had Rain’s character’s soul in my body, so I observed Rain for several months. When Seung Tak has Young Min’s soul in him, we called him ‘Seung Tak G.’ I tried to imitate his habits and act like what it would be if he were in my body. For example, there would be differences in our strides when we walked. Or I would put my hands in the pockets of my doctor’s coat, but he would put his hands in his pants pockets. We tried to make those differences stand out.”
As a result of the drama’s concept, the two lead actors had to memorize more than the usual amount of lines and movements. Kim Bum said, “When Rain is in my body, I had to do his lines, and he had to do my lines sometimes as well. We had to memorize all of each other’s lines. That was a new experience for me.”
Rain added, “We had to know each other’s actions and movements too in order to recreate them exactly. Since I couldn’t just focus on my own part, I had to have more concentration than usual.”
About why he chose the drama, Rain said, “I read a lot of scripts, but I remember thinking ‘Ghost Doctor’ would be really difficult to do. It felt like it would be a really hard path to take from start to finish. There were so many lines, and since it was fantasy, there would be CGI as well. There was also romance between the characters, and we’d also have to pull off the medical part well. But when I met the director and writer, I felt a sense of certainty.”
He shared how his immersion into his character, Cha Young Min, had gotten him in trouble with his wife Kim Tae Hee . “Cha Young Min is proud, selfish, and speaks brutally to others,” he said. “He’s the king of the hospital. When I made a mistake at home, I accidentally spoke like Cha Young Min does. Hm, it would be a problem if this became the headline. I think I’ll stop here.”
Uee plays neurosurgeon Jang Se Jin, who is Cha Young Min’s ex-girlfriend, while Son Naeun plays emergency room intern Oh Soo Jung, who believes in supernatural phenomena and miracles.
Uee said, “In order to play a character who seems cold on the outside but is warm on the inside, I cut my hair short and straight. I also studied medical terms in order to properly play a doctor, and watched a lot of videos. I’m excited and nervous to show the viewers a character that I’ve never played before.” She added that this was her first doctor role and said, “I joined because the script was so fun. I’ve never worked with Rain, Kim Bum, and Son Naeun before, so I thought this was a good opportunity. I also really wanted to play a doctor, since I’ve never done that before.”
Rain praised his co-stars, saying, “I think Uee and Son Naeun really worked hard on the drama. When I heard them speak and intonate without making mistakes, I realized how much work they had put in. I realized that they must pour their blood and sweat into studying for their roles. I think that the past six months that we invested in the drama weren’t wasted. My chemistry with Kim Bum is beyond words. My first filming was with Son Naeun, and she was so good that I was taken aback. From our very first scene, I could feel that our chemistry was good. Uee was so perfect at memorizing lines that there was no room for ad-libs. Even the parts where she breathes are the same every time. I would rate everyone’s work 100 out of 100.”
“Ghost Doctor” premiered on January 3 at 10:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.

Hwasa is one of the It girls of K-Pop that always reminds girls to love themselves. Her song ‘Maria’ focuses on her struggles in the industry.

Who could forget the iconic opening to this song? Miss A’s ‘Bad Girl, Good girl’ was the group’s debut song, setting the tone for their sassy and strong vibes. The song is a clap back at any people who think they can get away with trash-talking. You should just be quiet since you don’t know them. This is a strong message to never let others slander your name.
4. ITZY - ‘Wannabe’
From RyuJin ’s iconic shoulder move to the amazing dance break, ‘Wannabe’ is all about being you.

KingKong by Starship's Official Naver / Wi HaJun's Official Instagram
K-Drama actors continue to be the talk of town as they dominate the acting scene. The industry never tires when there’s something new to talk about where K-Drama actors are concerned. Well, while we know that these talented men are good at what they do, there are some that have been and are unarguably more successful than their peers.
We’ve highlighted the “ 6 Successful K-Drama Actors In Their 30s, From Ji ChangWook To Park SeoJun (Part 1) ”, all of which deserve their success. In this edition, we’ll touch on another set of 6 successful K-Drama actors that are at the top of their game, from the worldwide famous Kim Bum to budding actor Wi HaJun. These K-Drama actors have gained an immensely loyal fandom, that’s for sure.
Kim Bum's Official Instagram
All K-Drama fans know Kim Bum’s adorable character in “ Boys Over Flowers ”, and most have followed his career ever since then. While he has shown versatility in dramas like “ Tail of the Nine Tailed ”, “ Law School ” and “ Ghost Doctor ”, his acting never gets old because he always brings something fresh to every character he plays. Such a sign of a great actor can’t obviously be ignored, and so fans are always eager to see what drama he’s playing in next.
Check out the trailer for “ Tail of the Nine Tailed 1938 ” here:
2. Lee JongSuk
What we can say with confidence is that Lee JongSuk’s characters always hit and never miss. His array of character dynamics have caught fans attention through dramas such as “ School 2013 ”, “ While You Were Sleeping ”, “ W ”, “ Romance Is A Bonus Book ”, even up until “ Big Mouth ”. He has shown just how deeply and similarly humourously he can get when playing a role, and fans absolutely love his dedication to the art of acting.
Check out the trailer for “ Big Mouth ” here:
3. Seo InGuk
STORY J Company's Naver
We’re almost tempted to say Seo InGuk is one of the designated hot actors in their 30s, and we’re sure you’d agree. After seeing him play heartthrob of versatile characters in dramas like “ Reply 1997 ”, “ The Smile Has Left Your Eyes ”, “ Doom At Your Service ”, “ Shopping King Louis ”, and “ Café Minamdang ”, you just have to agree that he's a mesmerizing actor. If you’ve seen the K-Movie “ Project Wolf Hunting ”, you might’ve fallen for his intensity of his character there, too. This actor is just very talented at playing the role to the best of his able abilities, and also making you love the character— and him— as well. “”
Check out the trailer for “ Café Minamdang ” here:
4. Jung HaeIn
Jung HaeIn's Official Instagram
We think it’s safe to say that Jung HaeIn plays a lot of sentimental roles in dramas. His characterisation as the gentle, reserved yet no-nonsense male lead in “ Something In The Rain ”, “ One Spring Night ”, “ D.P. ”, “ Snowdrop ” and K-movie “ Tune In For Love ” has continuously hooked drama watchers and viewers over the years. He almost always plays that one character you can’t help but empathize with, and he plays them so well. We’ll definitely be looking forward to more of his dramas, to empathize with his character if anything.
Check out the trailer for “ D.P. 2 ” here:
5. Wi HaJun
Wi HaJun's Official Instagram
Actor Wi HaJun’s success over the years hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans and drama viewers. Right from his groundbreaking appearance in “ Squid Game ” to his roles in “ Romance is a Bonus Book ”, “ Bad and Crazy ”, “ Little Women ”, and now recently concluded “ The Worst of Evil ”, this actor has stolen the spotlight. After gaining the well-deserved recognition for his chill approach to acting, his roles have been only phenomenal after phenomenal. It’s always exciting to see this man appear on screen, and time is only in his favor as he climbs up the ladder of acting success.
Check out the trailer for “ The Worse of Evil ” here:
6. Ok TaeCyeon
TaeCyeon's Official Instagram
From being a member of the 2nd gen boy group 2PM to becoming an in-demand actor, TaeCyeon has made quite the seamless transition. Even when we— and 2PM fans— love to see him sing and dance and be a funny and charismatic idol in the group, we also love his work on the big screen. Evidence of his success in acting is seen in dramas such as “ Dream High ”, “ Vincenzo ”, “ Blind ” and “ Secret Royal Inspector & Joy ”. He's shown just how much he can grow and improve as an actor, and we’re definitely here to support that.
Check out the trailer for “ Heartbeat ” here:
