Park So-dam in consideration to join Jang Hyuk in Beautiful Mind

It’s an unexpected choice, but medical mystery drama Beautiful Mind, which is currently courting Jang Hyuk (Master of Trade—Inn 2015) to headline, is also now considering casting 2015’s It Girl Park So-dam opposite him. Both are in consideration with neither confirmed yet, but okay, I’m intrigued.

It would be quite a jump for Park to take the lead in a drama series, but not necessarily a bad move for either her or the show; she burst onto the scene and made such a splash in such a short span of time that she’s being called Monster Rookie regularly by the media. She debuted in 2013 but already has more than 20 projects on her resumé, starting with small roles in movies like Scarlet Innocence and The Royal Tailor and working her way up to bigger roles in The Silenced, cute youth drama Because It’s the First Time, and the dark mystery The Priests.

A Beautiful Mind features a leading man who’s both a genius neurosurgeon and a sufferer of brain damage, which results in his inability to feel emotions or empathize. So he’s brilliant at treating brains on one level, but totally unequipped to deal with them on another. There’s no description of Park So-dam’s potential role yet so I’m not ready to assume they’re love interests, although we do know that love will start to open his eyes and restore his humanity, I don’t know how, let’s just go with it. I’m not sure how I’d feel about a romantic pairing between them, but I do find her quite compelling and would be interested to see how well they act together; she’s already acted alongside a number of big names (Kang Dong-won, Kim Yoon-seok, Park Bo-young) so I think she ought to be able to hold her own.

A Beautiful Mind kicks off its central mystery after our main doc’s patients begin to die, and the case brings together a neurosurgeon, a violent crimes detective, and a cardiothoracic surgeon who’s also a neurology researcher. It’s written by Kim Tae-hee of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and directed by PD Mo Wan-il of Dream High 2 and Sirius. The drama will follow Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho on KBS, premiering in May.

I hope she's not the LI...she's already young and has a baby face to boot. We have enough upcoming dramas with huge age gaps.

To be honest, I can't imagine them playing romantic interests, that pairing seems just too odd to me.

How much would I give for Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara to reunite again. The sooner the better, so I'd die of joy if it were to happen this year.

I mean, even if it becomes a hot mess later on, I could force myself to watch it just to see them in action.

think Jang Nara committed to a Chinese drama next so it would have to be an end of the year drama if anything.

Really? I didn't know she already took on a new role after 'One More Happy Ending', what is a name of this drama if you may?

only heard it from someone who said it, very hard to get info from china, and you normally find out after she made a drama there, than before. All I read was she was heading over to china for three months work. Of course that could just mean catching up on her endorsements she has over there, but a three month time frame suggests a drama or a film. I checked angeljjangnara one of the bigger chinese fan sites and couldnt find anything.

Jang Hyuk is actually filming a Chinese drama in Shenzhen now, hopefully that one can wrap up before this starts.

The best partner for Jang Hyuk will be Jang Nara, the same for her. The best chemistry together.

Yeah, give them a chance. It's not that bad. Look at Marriage Contract.

Exactly.... Marriage Contract: the chemistry between those 2 is so strong and palpable that you feel like saying "why are they not having babies in real life yet?"

there's not necessarily anything wrong with new pairings or old ones. i think many individuals just like seeing their favorites paired together. it's as close as some of us can get especially if it's definitely not gonna happen in real life. hahaha

She's young and looks even younger. I mean, JH looks like he can be her dad in that photo above.

Does K-Dramaland not know anything about platonic love?

It's not sure yet that they're playing eventual-romantic-loves but if they do end up playing platonic loves, I would be so down for that.

There is this syndrome called 'Senpai-please-notice-me', you know? And many mentors do develop affection for their dearest mentees too.

She's 24, fairly close to turning 25, and supposedly she can act.

I'd be much more worried about the nonsensical sounding plot of a person without the parts of the brain needed to feel emotions suddenly finding emotions than the age difference between Jang hyuk and her.

I know we're supposed to believe love conquers all, but now it can heal brain injuries too?
