Park Shi-eun’s three-episode mini-drama

Park Shi-eun is joining writer Kim Soo-hyun‘s “family” by taking the lead in Kim’s short three-episode special, which was announced just before the writer’s last drama, Thousand Day Promise, launched last year.

The short drama is titled Father Is Sorry, and also stars two actors from last year’s sageuk sensation The Princess’s Man, Kim Young-chul and Lee Min-woo; they played Suyang and Jong, respectively. Park Shi-eun will play the daughter-in-law to patriarch Kim Young-chul, married to Lee Min-woo, and the drama will follow four siblings and their families. It’s being planned for the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday, which means it’ll probably be a heart-tugging character piece that focuses on family relationships.

Park Shi-eun is one of those actresses who’s been on my “Whatever Happened To…?” list for a while. I know she’s had some recent credits like the long daily drama Pure Pumpkin Flower and the current daily Just Like Today, but that means she doesn’t really pop up on the radar outside of Korea. I haven’t seen her in anything years, after first seeing her in Delightful Girl Chun-hyang as Jae Hee’s annoyingly clinging ex. (I didn’t like her character, but as you all know I’ve got a ton of affection for that drama and therefore anyone connected to it.)

Despite Kim Soo-hyun’s illustrious resumé penning hit drama after hit drama (My Man’s Woman, Mom’s Dead Upset, Life Is Beautiful), her series tend to be longer affairs, and I’m curious to see what she can do with a smaller cast of characters and a drastically cut running time. (In fact, I wonder if that’ll be a good thing; I found Thousand Day Promise a thoughtfully written drama, but terribly padded out with filler.)

Father Is Sorry will air on cable channel TV Chosun on the first day of the lunar new year, January 23.

if she gets onto Kim Soo-hyun's list after this, good for her. the writer tends to work with actors and actresses recurringly, e.g. here with king Kim Young-chul

To think that she got to throw wine in Park Shi Hoo's face in DGCH! Heehee Park Shi Hoo was just there for < 5 minutes screen time, but PSH is more visible now.

Anyway, I hated her 1D ex-gf character too but Chae Rin was fun in the mini-sageuk scenes after each episode.

I'm glad she's still alive in the industry. :D

I'm ashamed to say that I didn't pay attention to Park Shi Hoo during Chun Hyang days. My eyes were for Mong Ryong and Ajussi (Byun). And Mongryong's too-cool-for-words dad :))

I started loving Park Shi Hoo only with Prosecutor Princess. :((

But don't worry, I'm back-stalking all of PSH's appearances now. :D

It's nice to know some writers are boundless in their endeavor. I too am curious about this short piece.

Lunar specials on on their way... Yay!
