The September 3 episode of MBCs Section TV Entertainment Relay featured the principal cast of the new drama Hospital Ship.
Hospital Ship is a drama about doctors serving on a hospital ship that brings aid to island villages lacking big hospitals. As Ha Ji Wons first drama in two years, it got off to a great start as it took the No. 1 spot in its time slot with its first episode.
Ha Ji Won, who is taking on the challenge of a doctor role for the first time, said, English was too difficult so I studied anatomy with a coloring book. I have a hard time looking at blood. Normally I cant even watch movies where theres blood, but this time I studied lots of medical dramas and documentaries.
She added that she got 1-to-1 instruction from a real doctor and practiced stitches on things like bananas.
Her co-star, CNBLUEs Kang Min Hyuk, said, She matches with her character really well. She has the calmness and coldness of a real doctor. We work well together.
