The Chicago Med cast is introducing another new face for Season 7, Episode 2 of the show.

During the Chicago Med season premiere, viewers were already introduced to three new doctors who will serve as main characters in Season 7.

It was a pretty busy night for the show, as the writers and producers introduced Dr. Cooper (played by Michael Rady) as a doctor that Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) is going to be investigating on behalf of Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson).

And then there are the two new doctors on Chicago Med who are working in the ED. Guy Lockard is playing Dr. Dylan Scott and Kristin Hager is Dr. Stevie Hammer.

It appears that the show isn’t done introducing new faces yet, as hinted at in new images released for the second episode of Season 7.

Who plays Dr. Joy Yang on the Chicago Med cast?

Actress Angela Oh will appear as Dr. Joy Yang on Chicago Med Season 7, Episode 2. Her specific role hasn’t been advertised yet, nor has how long she is going to appear on the show. But the above image does indicate that she is important enough for NBC to be advertising her appearance.

Below is a quick look at the promo for the new episode that Dr. Joy Yang will appear in, but she doesn’t pop up in the quick preview.
