Ha Ji-won (The Time I Loved You) has been offered to play the female lead of MBC’s medical drama Hospital Ship. The new series will revolve around a ship that sails around island villages to provide medical services. The Hallyu actress, based on reports, is currently considering to play the role of resident surgeon Song Eun-jae. This could be Ha Ji-won’s small screen comeback in two years if she decides to accept the offer.
Hospital Ship is written by Yoon Sun-joo (Hwang Jin Yi/ Secret Door) and will be directed by Park Jae-bum (Start Again/I Miss You). The drama is tentatively slated for a July premiere in the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot following the Yoo Seung-ho-Kim So-hyun sageuk romance Ruler.
