Joo Ji Hoon was previously in talks to join 'Medical Top Team' leading MBC's drama department to request for MBC's ban on the actor to be lifted. The ban was put into place in 2009 after his drug abuse scandal. With the ban gone, Joo Ji Hoon will star in his first MBC drama since 'Goong' as the director of the internal medicine department, Han Seung Jae, in 'Medical Top Team'.
Joo Ji Hoon shared, "I am joyful that I am able to work with a good production and renowned staff. More so than his exterior image, I am planning to focus on the depth of my character Han Seung Jae. I anticipate that this drama will have its own color that differentiates itself from other medical dramas."
'Medical Top Team' is the work of 'The Moon that Embraces the Sun's PD Kim Do Hoon, and 'Brain's writer Yoon Kyung Ah. The drama will portray the story of a team of doctors who are the best in their respective fields and will take viewers into the reality of the medical field and the power struggles that lie within hospitals.
Joo Ji Hoon will be acting alongside male lead Kwon Sang Woo, female lead Jung Ryeo Won, Oh Yeon Seo, and SHINee's Minho, who is in the final stages of completing his casting offer, in 'Medical Top Team' that is set to air this October!
