“Lee will star in JTBC’s new medical drama series,” his management agency King Kong by Starship Entertainment said Monday. Lee will play the role of an emergency room doctor.

“Life” is not a typical medical drama show, as its plot centers on a power struggle in a hospital, rather than surgeries and medical treatments.
