Ji Sung is back on the screen with his role Yo Han on Doctor John, who is an anesthesiologist fresh out of the big house for illegally performing euthanasia on a patient. Afterward, he falls in love with a resident at the new hospital and their chemistry is AMAZING, but there’s trouble in paradise for Dr. John; the prosecutor who put him in prison in the first place still has a pretty huge chip on his shoulder.
