Lee Seo-jin advertises hard for his clinic in Internal Medicine Specialist Doctor Park
TVING original drama Internal Medicine Specialist Doctor Park has just released a fun teaser gearing up for its release early next year. Lee Seo-jin (Times) stars as the titular character, Doctor Park, who has just opened his own clinic for the first time.
I almost didn’t recognize Lee Seo-jin in the poster above because of his baldness, but the shiny scalp evokes laughter when combined with the caption: “Shiny doctor, shiny life.” Doctor Park wanted to be a good and truly altruistic doctor. However, when faced with climbing interest on his debt from the loans he took out to set up the clinic — and completely empty patient rooms — he’s ready to resort to dire measures to save his clinic from bankruptcy.
The teaser is so cringe, with its giant bolded font and old advertising techniques. Lee Seo-jin asks, “Are you looking for a clinic that treats you like family?” Ra Mi-ran (Black Dog), who plays Lee Seo-jin’s wife in the drama, appeals to the audience by boasting of its five-star rating (…but by whose standard?).
Cha Chung-hwa (Hometown Cha Cha Cha), playing the clinic’s nurse, advertises “364 days of after-hour service” and “unlimited coffee mix” in the commercial. Together, they end the commercial by inviting patients to “Please come to Doctor Park’s clinic!”
Directed by Seo Joon-bum, and based on a popular Naver webtoon by the same name, Internal Medicine Specialist Doctor Park premieres on January 14.
