The upcoming sports-medical Korean drama ‘Dr. Champ’ starring Kim So Yeon, Uhm Tae Woong, and Jung Kyeo Woon, has gradually released its stills. The first stills were Jung’s scenes when he trains in his judo champ. Then, there were Kim and Jung’s scenes taken when Jung’s character saves his doctor played by Kim from being injured in a hit and run. The latest stills released were Shin Dong Hee’s when he is in the middle of judo training.
The drama focuses the story at the Olympic training facility, Taerung National Village. The friendship, love and rivalry will make the story more complicated. Unfortunately, the real Taerung has denied the crew’s request to shoot at their site because they are busy preparing for the upcoming Asia Games in Guangzhou, China. Taerung’s side is afraid that the shooting would probably disrupt the athletes’ training and they couldn’t accommodate the filming crew. Therefore, the filming moves to Yongin University, which is called the “judo mecca”.
Besides Kim, Uhm, Jung, and Shin, the drama also stars including Cha Ye Ryun as a swim coach, Kang So Ra as a swimmer, Jung Seok Won as judo player, Song Ji Eun as Jung’s friend.
‘Dr. Champ’ premieres on September 27 on SBS, following ‘I am Legend’.
