Girls’ Generation’s member Sooyoung will join the cast of an upcoming medical series set to air on cable channel tvN, according to the show’s promoter CJ E&M on Tuesday.

CJ E&M announced in a press release that Sooyoung will play a violinist named Wee-jin in tvN’s new Monday and Tuesday drama “The Third Hospital” which will begin shooting early next month.

“The Third Hospital” will surround the story of doctors working in a neurosurgery department in an alternative hospital that adopts both western and oriental medical practices.
