Ju Ji Hoon is in talks to play the lead role in the new drama Severe Trauma Center: Golden Hour (literal title).
On the 3rd, Starnews reported that Ju Ji Hoon was cast in the new web novel-based series Severe Trauma Center: Golden Hour. The actor’s agency H& Entertainment responded, “It’s one of the many projects he received an offer from. He’s positively reviewing his appearance.”
This upcoming medical drama is based on the web novel of the same name written by Hansanyiga, a writer and an otolaryngologist. The story centers around the severe trauma center led by Doctor Baek Kang Hyuk, a character inspired by Professor Lee Guk Jong.
