These actors haven’t age a day!
JTBC‘s new K-Drama Doctor Slump, starring ZE:A‘s Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye, premiered over the weekend.
Once rivals in school, two brilliant doctors reunite by chance — each facing life’s worst slump and unexpectedly finding solace in each other.
Some viewers might not know that this isn’t Hyung Sik and Shin Hye’s first project together. They previously starred in the tremendously popular teen K-Drama Heirs (also known as The Inheritors).
A young couple, belonging to families with contrasting backgrounds, must navigate through various societal restrictions and fight against the norms held up by the chaebol families.
Classic K-Drama fans have been excited for the two actors to reunite over a decade later. While Hyung Sik wasn’t the male lead in Heirs, he is this time around in Doctor Slump.
Naturally, fans can’t help but compare the two K-Dramas. These actors always had great chemistry.
Their fun bickering started over ten years ago! This time, we’ll see them fall in love, too.
Netflix shared a side-by-side comparison of Hyung Sik and Shin Hye’s iconic clips from the two K-Dramas. Both contain high-school-based scenes, so it’s easy to see similarities.
The actors proved that they still look good in a school uniform! Netizens were shocked to see just how little had changed. Park Hyung Sik and Park Shin Hye look like they haven’t aged a day, although it’s been a decade. Are we sure they aren’t vampires, or is it just Korean skincare?
Another fan pointed out that Doctor Slump‘s male lead and second male lead have a history, too. Yoon Park and Park Hyung Sik previously appeared together in 2014–2015 K-Drama What Happens to My Family?, so it’s been nearly a decade in the making for their reunion too!
