Doctor Prisoner is gaining the attention of viewers as it released two official posters featuring its main cast.
Headlined by actor Namgoong Min, Doctor Prisoner is a medical suspense drama about a talented doctor who used to work in one of Korea’s biggest and prestigious hospitals. After being kicked out from his high-profile job, he finds himself as a doctor of a clinic in a correctional facility.
The posters released by the production team are somewhat dark and eerie, which mirrors the tone of the drama. The first one shows Namgoong Min and Kim Byung-chul looking at each other, with Hello Venus’ Kwon Na-ra and Choi Won-young behind them. The messy backdrop seems like the aftermath of a riot in prison.
Nara plays the love interest of Namgoong Min’s character while Kim and Choi take on the role of a prison’s doctor and heir to a conglomerate that owns a hospital, respectively.
The second poster, which is seen with the operating room superimposed on a prison cell, features Namgoong Min and Kwon Na-ra. The text beside the actor reads, “Are you curious? Why don’t you join me?”
There are only two weeks left before Doctor Prisoner airs its first episode. According to a representative of the production team, “We hope you look forward to a version of ‘Game of Thrones’ inside a prison with Doctor Prisoner starring Namgoong Min, Kwon Na-ra, Choi Won-young, and Kim Byung-chul. Time is delicate like surgery, and is as if against a blade’s sharp edges.”
Doctor Prisoner will premiere on March 20 at 10 p.m. KST.
