In an upcoming TV series, actress Ha Ji-won will play a doctor for the first time in her long acting career. Her first TV drama in two years, the series is scheduled to start on Aug. 30.
Ha recently shared photos showing her efforts to prepare for the role.
She is studying basic anatomy by learning the names of internal organs and drawing them. She is also learning about surgery from doctors and watching videos, and "practicing" it by applying sutures to bananas.
"I try to do my very best in all stages of my work, starting with the preparation. This is the first time I have played a doctor, so I'm working hard to be as convincing as possible," she said.
The series tells the story of a team of doctors from diverse backgrounds working together on a ship that travels to remote places to treat patients.
