On the 19th, Kim Min-jae held an interview with SBS Friday-Saturday drama “Dr. Romantic” season 3 (written by Kang Eun-kyung and Lim Hye-min, directed by Yoo In-sik and Kang Bo-seung) at a cafe in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

Following season 1 of 2016-2017 and season 2 of 2020, they met with viewers in season 3 of this year. Kim Min-jae played the role of Park Eun-tak, a nurse at Doldam Hospital. Kim Min-jae worked with actor Han Seok-kyu for the third time in the “Romantic Doctor Kim Sa-bu” series.
On this day, Kim Min-jae said, “It’s still such an honor and happiness to think that I’ve worked with Han Seok-kyu three times,” adding, “He’s still such a cool adult for me.” He is a senior and an adult who always impresses me every moment. He is a senior who I want to express with all the good words in the world. I’m so thankful. “Not only me, but everyone will,” he said, expressing respect for Han Seok-kyu.
Han Seok-kyu surprised not only Kim Min-jae but also officials at the scene by directly mentioning the timing of Kim Min-jae’s military enlistment at the production presentation for Season 3 of “Dr. Romantic” held on April 26.
In response, Kim Min-jae said, “We have talked about the military since season 1. Han Seok-kyu said, “Go to the army quickly,” and we talked a lot as the military period was set in detail in season 3. I told my senior, ‘It’s not confirmed, but you may go there by this time. I said, “I will go within this year.” Kim Min-jae continued, “I was surprised at the production presentation, but it was so good,” adding, “In a way, I personally wondered how to tell you about the military.” But my senior told me pleasantly,” he said.
After the production presentation, Han Seok-gyu expressed his sorry feelings to Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae said, “My senior smiled and apologized to me, saying, ‘Min-jae, I’m sorry,’ but I felt more sorry because you said you were sorry,” adding, “I was rather grateful.” It used to be talked about a lot in the field. He confessed, “Min-jae is going to the army, so let’s put on another reflector,” and there were many interesting situations.”
Regarding the specific timing of joining the military, Kim Min-jae said, “I will definitely go within this year,” adding, “I don’t know what to say because the date has not yet been confirmed, but I received a warrant. We have to decide which unit to support. In fact, I like music, so I think it would be nice to have a chance to do music in the military. I don’t know what the situation will be,” he said
