Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk did a modeling campaign this year and someone must have noticed how good they looked together. Because the latest news is that they are both considering a role in an upcoming drama about news reporters.
Kim Woo Bin, Lee Jong Suk"s good friend and former co-star, previously considered a role in the drama but could not fit it into his schedule as he was filming back-to-back movies, "The Technicians" and then "Twenty."
He was up for the role of Choi Dal Po, a rookie reporter. Now both Lee Jong Suk"s agency, Wellmade Entertainment, and Park Shin Hye"s agency, S.A.L.T. Entertainment, have confirmed that their stars are considering offers to appear in the SBS drama.
Park Shin Hye is currently filming "The Tailors," a film in which she plays a fashion-conscious queen whose taste in clothes sparks political rivalries. Her last small screen appearance was in "The Heirs" with co-stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin.
Lee Jong Suk recently finished filming "Doctor Stranger" about a North Korean defector medical genius and he also contributed extra scenes to the movie version of that drama which was filmed in China.
When you see the two actors interviewed side-by-side their natural chemistry is evident. It"s charming how shy they seem around each other. Lee Jong Suk is known for being spontaneous on set, amusing co-stars with his playful antics. Viewers who have seen Park Shin Hye grow up on the small screen might be surprised at how sophisticated she can seem in person or how sweetly mature she is at fan events. The actors are sure to make an interesting drama couple.
He has had some impressive female co-stars, including Lee Bo Young, Kang So Ra and Jin Se Yeon. She has played across from Lee Min Ho, Kim Woo Bin, Jang Geun Suk and Jung Yong Hwa, just to name a few enviable co-stars.
The male lead in this drama is supposed to be super smart, have perfect recall and be very witty. The title "Pinocchio" suggests that one of the leading characters will have a problem telling lies and descriptions of the drama vary as to who it will be. One of the characters will either sneeze or hiccup whenever he or she has to lie.
The drama"s scriptwriter Park Hye Ryun and director Jo Soo Won worked with Lee Jong Suk on "I Hear Your Voice," and having seen how good he was in that role, naturally want to have him star in "Pinocchio."
"Pinocchio" will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays in November, following "It"s Okay, It"s Love" and "My Lovely Girl."
