We had been waiting for this. It’s been two years since Ha Ji Won’s last drama “Time I Loved You” which had not had a very good success with critics.

Hospital Ship is a new series that will premiere on August 30 starring Ha Ji Won and Kang Min Hyuk. It will be aired on MBC every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:00 (KST) starting August 30, 2017.

While there are many hospitals in big cities, these small villages that lie within the islands have no medical care readily available to them. The Hospital Ship, which travels around the various islands to provide medical services, doesn’t have enough medical tools available. There isn’t even an operation room for emergency care. Furthermore, the doctors aren’t very experienced. It is a place where newly graduated medical school students go to serve the military. These inexperienced doctors fight a lonely battle to save the lives of people who are in need.

The series is directed by Park Jae-bum who also directed Missing You (2012) and Scandal: A Shocking and Wrongful Incident (2013)
