Lee Jong Suk, Park Shin Hye and More Attend First Script Reading for ‘Pinocchio’
SBS’s upcoming drama Pinocchio held the first script reading session.
Set to air in November following My Lovely Girl, Pinocchio is the second collaboration project of writer Park Hye Ryun and director Jo Soo Won, who produced SBS’s hit drama I Hear Your Voice together in 2013.
Pinocchio will depict the competitive process of young people becoming reporters as they cry and get hurt by truth but realize that as reporters, they must tell the truth.
Pinocchio recently held the first script reading in SBS’s Ilsan Production Center, bringing together the writer, director and the cast members.
The script reading was attended by Lee Jong Suk, Park Shin Hye, Lee Pil Mo, Shin Jun Keun, Jin Kyung, Kim Kwang Kyu, Jung In Ki, Byun Hee Bong and more and they perfectly transformed into their characters.
Lee Jong Suk, who will be acting as ‘Choi Dal Po’ who is nicknamed ‘all-zero’ after getting zeros all throughout high school, and Park Shin Hye, who will play ‘Choi In Ha,’ who can’t hide her feelings due to ‘Pinocchio Syndrome’ which makes her hiccup every time she tells a lie, pulled off their lines without stopping.
Lee Pil Mo, playing a reporter-turned- PD ‘Hwang Gyo Dong,’ Jin Kyung, acting as a director at a broadcasting company ‘Song Cha Ok,’ Shin Jung Geun, taking the role of Park Shin Hye’s father as well as the other cast members also showed themselves 100% in sync with their characters.
The production team said, “The script reading for Pinocchio was heated up by bringing together the best team writer Park Hye Ryun and director Jo Soo Won as well as some of the best actors and actresses. The drama hasn’t aired yet but the great amount of interest has been energizing the production team. Please watch the drama when it airs.”
Having completed the script reading, Pinocchio will air in November, following My Lovely Girl.
