Jung Yumi and Nam Joo Hyuk have been cast as the leads of Netflix’s new original Korean drama “School Nurse Ahn Eun Young”.
Based on an award-winning novel of the same name by Jung Se Rang, “School Nurse Ahn Eun Young” is a fantasy drama about a bright and fearless school nurse (Jung Yumi) who has the unique ability to drive away spirits, but performs exorcisms in a unconventional, comedic manner. When she takes on a new job at a high school, she uncovers a grave mystery. Nam Joo Hyuk will be starring as Hong In Pyo, a traditional Korean teacher who is extremely protective and walks with a pronounced limp due to a car accident he was in as a child. He is an influential figure who begins working at the school his grandfather set up.
It will be directed by Lee Kyung Mi, who headed films “The Truth Beneath” and “Crush and Blush.” The drama will be released in the first half of 2020.
