Go Ara to cameo in new medical drama from ‘Reply’ series director

Go Ara is confirmed for a guest appearance in Wise Doctor Life, a medical drama from PD Shin Won-ho and screenwriter Lee Woo-jung of the popular Reply series.

The upcoming series is set in a university hospital and revolves around five doctors who used to be classmates when they were medical students. These characters are played by Jo Jung-suk (Nokdu Flower), Kim Dae-myung (Misaeng), Jung Kyung-ho (When The Devil Calls Your Name), Yoo Yoon-seok (Mr. Sunshine), and rookie actress Jeon Mi-do (Mother).

Director Shin Won-ho’s dramas are known for featuring guest appearances by leads from his previous shows, especially the Reply Series. It is only fitting that Wise Doctor Life would have a cameo by Go Ara (Haechi), who shot to fame after starring in Reply 1994 (2013).

On January 9, tvN dropped a teaser for the much-anticipated series. Instead of clips from the upcoming drama, the 30-second teaser featured clips of hospital scenes from Reply 1997, Reply 1994, Reply 1988, and Wise Prison Life.

Wise Doctor Life is expected to premiere in February on tvN.

Thrillers like Secret Forest and rom-coms with sprinklings of feminism à la Because This Life Is My First hold a special place in her heart. She can be reached at [email protected]
