SBS’s Pinocchio starring Park Shin Hye has also been gathering popularity in China. With just six episodes, the drama already earned a total of 170 million views on the streaming site Youku.
After Pinocchio airs on Wednesday and Thursday the dramas get uploaded on Youku on Thursday and Friday with subtitles, but the Chinese fans look for the videos before the subtitled videos and leave enthusiastic comments on the Youku videos.
An affiliate in China said, “Since Pinocchio is the next project of Park Shin Hye, who starred in You’re Beautiful, which brought the hallyu wave, as well as the popular dramas Heartstrings, Flower Boys Next Door and The Heirs, it gathered a lot of interest before it aired. The heat for Pinocchio has been getting hotter after each episode, due to its high quality and the cast members’ acting abilities.”
In Pinocchio, Park Shin Hye acts as the lead actress ‘Choi In Ha’ who hiccups each time she lies. Her popularity has been increasing due to her natural acting for hiccups and bright charms in the drama.
Meanwhile, Park Shin Hye will be transforming into a queen in the film Royal Tailors premiering on December 24.
