Seung Hyun, who discovers her this way, is the quintessential eastern medicine doctor and applies acupuncture in between her eyes.
Sooyoung actually had to suffer through acupuncture for her first shoot in order to portray the scene realistically and this is not an especially easy feat for an actress. Word is that she was totally fine with it and was complimented when she did so in good spirits.
Oh Ji Ho said, "If you see her acting, it's going to surprise a lot of people."
In the episode on Thursday, Oh Ji Ho and Sooyoung's first meeting coincided with a female patient who is having a seizure in the emergency room. The two factions of the hospital will have a conflict for who is to treat the patient and when Seung Hyun steps closer to inspect her, the western medicine doctors takes her away once more for Kim Doo Hyun (Kim Seung Woo).
