Park Shin Hye Confirmed as Lead of Drama ‘Pinocchio’
Park Shin Hye will be returning as the heroine of SBS’s upcoming drama Pinocchio.
S.A.L.T Entertainment, Park Shin Hye’s agency, announced on September 4 that Park Shin Hye has been confirmed to take the role of heroine ‘Choi In Ha’ in SBS’s Pinocchio.
Gathering spotlights as the new project of writer Park Hye Ryeon and Jo Soo Won PD who teamed up for I Hear Your Voice, Pinocchio is a drama depicting the story of local news reporters in their 20’s.
Park Shin Hye will be acting as the heroine, who chooses to become a reporter due to her ‘Pinocchio syndrome’, which makes her hiccup every time she lies.
It has been reported that director Hwang Ki Young from iHQ, the production company of Pinocchio, has sent numerous love calls to Park Shin Hye ever since the project proposal came out.
Park Shin Hye, who has been searching for her next project after filming The Heirs and Royal Tailor, decided that Pinocchio is a charming project that depicts love, frustration and growth of youth in their 20’s and decided to take the role.
She was also attracted to Pinocchio because she wanted to take after heroine In Ha’s honest and confident character.
Pinocchio will be airing in November, following My Lovely Girl.
