Park Jin-woo back in daily drama
Aw, bummer: Park Jin-woo is coming back to television (yay), but in a morning drama (eh). He’ll be taking a part in the new KBS2 series I’ll Give You Everything [다줄거야] as a simple, dense guy with good IQ and bad EQ.
Park explained at the drama’s October 6 press conference that he happens to share a lot of personality traits with his character, who is a proud doctor, such as enjoying being alone rather than being surrounded with others. Although I think it’s a disappointment that he’s in a morning drama (because I don’t watch or enjoy them), as a career move it’s probably not too bad — it gives him wide exposure among a mostly ajumma viewership. He said, “I think actors don’t differentiate between morning dramas and others. I think you should choose a project based on the character.”
The drama I’ll Give You Everything also stars Hong Ah-reum and Yoon Ah-jung, with whom Park Jin-woo shares a love triangle. It premieres on October 12, following the current morning series Janghwa, Hong-ryun.
I fell for Park Jin-woo’s charms back in the college sitcom Nonstop 5; it wasn’t a show whose popularity was based on good acting, but I thought he was one of the better cast members in the acting department (along with Jo Jung-rin and Gu Hye-sun). He went on to show his goofy comic side in Bad Family, which made me think that he could actually have been a pretty good gag man if he weren’t so pretty himself. I always thought he’d have a more successful career, even though he has had parts in dramas like Painter of the Wind. (I’m still waiting for him to break out.)
