After only acting in sitcoms, Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung will be making her first acting attempt in a traditional drama.

Sooyoung has been cast in a lead role in the upcoming medical drama “The 3rd Hospital” on cable channel tvN. Sooyoung will be playing the role of a violist [viola player], and along with the other female role, played by Kim Minjung, will be involved in a romantic storyline with the two male characters, played by Kim Seungwoo and Oh Jiho.

“The 3rd Hospital” is Korea’s first advanced medical drama that portrays tense competition between western and eastern medicine in the neurosurgery department of an alternative hospital.

With the final cast consisting of Kim Seungwoo, Oh Jiho, Kim Minjung, and Sooyoung, pre-production will begin in early April. The drama is scheduled to start airing at the end of July.
