Hallyu star Park Shin Hye will be seen portraying the female lead in the upcoming medical romantic-comedy drama Doctors. The 26-year-old, who was last seen in Pinocchio, is very much excited about her role and feels that her character will give her a nice transition from the roles she has enacted earlier.

During a press conference, the actress shared her thoughts on choosing the medically inspired SBS drama. She said: "The manuscript was fun and Yoo Hye Jung is a character unlike any I've done before. Moreover, I've always worked alongside people my age, so it's nice to film with the reliable older Kim Rae Won."

She stated that she was charmed by the character and its significance in the real world. She added: "She does not trust people, works hard alone, and doesn't know how to love or give. She puts up walls because she doesn't want to get hurt. I previously portrayed characters who freely express their love and embrace other people, so it's refreshing to be challenging myself with a different role. However, it's hard to say that I will break the mold. I can't transform 100 percent."

Doctors will air on SBS on Monday and Tuesday at 22:00-time slot from 20 June.

Doctors is about a girl who comes from a bullied childhood and through self-preservation has kept her heart shut away from other people. However, she transforms after meeting her mentor Hong Ji-hong (Kim Rae-won), who changes her dark life and turns her into a compassionate doctor.
