tvN’s upcoming drama “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” has unveiled its main poster!
Based on the novel of the same name, “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” will tell the story of Yoo Se Poong (Kim Min Jae), a well-known internal medicine doctor who gets expelled from the royal court after getting caught up in a conspiracy. When he meets Seo Eun Woo (Kim Hyang Gi) and Gye Ji Han (Kim Sang Kyung) in the strange and beautiful village of Gyesu, he works to become a true doctor who heals the heart.
In the newly released poster, the three doctors literally open the door to the heart as they welcome new patients. Yoo Se Poong wears a warm smile that is already healing in and of itself, while Seo Eun Woo whips out a magnifying glass to carefully examine her patients. Finally, Gye Ji Han stands ready to treat his patients with a shiny acupuncture needle in hand.
The poster’s caption emphasizes the trio’s belief in healing the heart, asking, “What illness brought you in today? I’ll examine your heart first.”
When asked to pick a keyword or phrase that sums up “Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist,” Kim Min Jae chose the drama’s title. He went on to add, “I’m currently enjoying filming while falling deeply into each of the three doctor characters—Yoo Se Poong, Seo Eun Woo, and Gye Ji Han—and sharing their thoughts and feelings together with them.”
Meanwhile, leading lady Kim Hyang Gi chose the keyword “human,” explaining, “The drama relatably depicts the stories of people with a wide variety of illnesses of the heart. Everyone is so well-suited to their respective roles, and the filming set has such a comfortable vibe that I feel a healthy energy while filming.”
Finally, Kim Sang Kyung picked the keyword “heart,” commenting, “It’s a story about treating wounded hearts with warm love. It’s like a complete gift set with fun stories, laughs, and touching moments, and I think it will give comfort to viewers, so I’m filming with a happy heart.”
“Poong, The Joseon Psychiatrist” premieres on August 1 at 10:30 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki. Check out the latest teaser for the drama here!
