Doctor Slump trailer: Park Shin-Hye & Park Hyung-Sik reunite at their worst
The newly released trailer of Doctor Slump begins with Nam Ha-Neul and Yeo Jung-Woo’s rivalry. The latter is popular among girls and is one of the top students in class. Meanwhile, as Ha-Neul contemplates his popularity, Jung-Woo is disheartened about being placed second in class. It is likely that the duo battle for the top position in class, increasing the competition between the two. Although they go their separate ways after school, they reconnect years after on a rooftop.
The trailer shows their respective slump journeys. Yeo Jung-Woo is now a renowned plastic surgeon. However, he gets embroiled in a controversy after a medical accident. Media surrounds him as he exits from the hospital. Meanwhile, Nam Ha-Neul is an anesthesiologist who suffers from burnout. She also faces immense pressure from her superiors. The trailer then documents their emotional reunion as they embrace each other and cry.
They earn a second chance at life—a “resuscitation” when they begin to spend time with each other. Moreover, as they navigate their newfound friendship, love blossoms. In the trailer, Ha-Neul contemplates meeting Jung-Woo when, for the both of them, it felt like the world had come to an end. The trailer teases a heart-fluttering romantic comedy, promising viewers fun, romance, and drama.
