Poong, the Joseon Psychiatrist, is a South Korean television series starring Kim Min-jae in the title role, along with Kim Hyang-gi and Kim Sang-kyung. It debuted on tvN on August 1st, 2022, and ran for 12 episodes in its first season on Mondays and Tuesdays. The second season will begin on January 11, 2023, and air every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:30. (KST).
Based on the same-named novel, stars Kim Min Jae as Yoo Se Poong, a well-known internal medicine physician who was dismissed from the royal court after becoming involved in a plot. After meeting Seo Eun Woo (Kim Hyang Gi) and Gye Ji Han (Kim Sang Kyung) in the mysterious and picturesque town of Gyesu, he set out on a mission to become a real doctor who cures the heart in Season 1.
A group of novel and unique characters are introduced in the third teaser video. With their unexpected appearances, Jeon Kang Il (Kang Young Seok) and Lee Seo Yi (Woo Davi) frighten Yoo Se Poong and Seo Eun Woo. Yoo Se Yeop’s first love, the mysterious Lee Seo Yi, enters Gyesu Clinic flanked by a large contingent of security personnel. It would be intriguing to observe what her presence will exactly signify for Yoo Se Poong and Seo Eun Woo given that she unexpectedly causes turmoil to their previously peaceful relationship.
Another image worth noticing is the area of the city streets that surrounds the Gyesu Clinic branch in Hanyang. With his breathtaking pictures, Yoo Se Poong not only wins the hearts of women in Gyesu, but also in the nation’s capital. Jeon Kang Il, on the other hand, irritates Yoo Se Poong by posing the question, “Are you even qualified to be a doctor?”Since Yoo Se Poong received a call from the king himself and must relocate to the capital city of Hanyang, Season 2 will feature the beloved cast of characters in an entirely new location.
