Newsroom drama Pinocchio secures rookie reporter cast

We’ve finally got a lineup for upcoming SBS newsroom drama Pinocchio, and there aren’t any big surprises or shakeups. Park Shin-hye (Heirs) was first to confirm the offer, and now Lee Jong-seok (Doctor Stranger), Lee Yubi (Gu Family Book), and Kim Young-kwang (Plus Nine Boys) have officially signed on. Of course I’M terribly excited that Lee Jong-seok will be reuniting with I Hear Your Voice’s writer-director team, because I miss the warm fuzzies that that drama made me feel. Where are you, warm fuzzies of dramaland? Won’t you return to me?

The drama stars a foursome of bright-eyed, bushy-tailed rookie broadcast reporters at the city news desk, and will be a coming-of-age story about launching themselves into their first real-world social battleground in their twenties. They’ll basically spend every waking moment together because they have to work around the clock, and naturally, hijinks and romance will come to pass.

Park Shin-hye plays the heroine who suffers from a form of Pinocchio syndrome, which makes her hiccup whenever she tells a lie. For some odd reason she chooses to be a news reporter because of this, likely because she’s idealistic enough to think she won’t ever have to lie on the job. Lee Jong-seok plays a young reporter who’s been working at the news desk for a year. He’s tall and good-looking (well duh), but his shabby appearance — rundown clothes, bowl-cut hair (ack!) — hides all his good features and nobody gives him a second glance. But he’s eloquent and has an especially sharp memory, and just needs the right grooming and cultivating to put his best foot forward.

Kim Young-kwang plays a chaebol heir with a sunny disposition, who’s never once had to live like a commoner while growing up. He spent a year working at a fashion magazine and quit, and tries his hand at broadcast news instead. Unlike the hero, he’ll be the kind of well-dressed, confident, handsome man to turn heads everywhere he goes. Lee Yubi plays an ex-sasaeng-fan (in her high school and college days) who turns her idol fangirl know-how into useful skills as a reporter. She’s described as timid but extremely dogged, which sounds contradictory and yet perfect to describe a rabid fan.

The cast also includes Lee Pil-mo (Emergency Couple), Byun Hee-bong (Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit), Kang Shin-il (God’s Gift–14 Days), and I Hear Your Voice’s hilarious judge Kim Kwang-kyu, and Gap-dong’s Jung In-ki who are both reuniting with the PD.

Pinocchio follows She’s So Lovable on Wednesdays and Thursdays in November. Whoo!

Of course she was petrified. He was sucking the life force out from her. She was shocked and just wasn't professional enough to act like she enjoyed it. The director thought it was romantic so this made the cut.

What's an idol? A celebrity that you idolize. Why are only music acts... idols? If you think about it, actors can also be seen as idols.

Also Park Shin Hye recently sang in OSTs and even had mini concerts. If she becomes a singer, would she be an idol?

Her role in Nice Guy was so small, but she was ok.

Gu Family Book was where she was truly impressive. She was a rookie but gave the best performance of all the young leads. Even more impressed because she was a rookie and it was a sageuk which is a genre even some veteran actors can't do well.

She was so funny in vampire idol, in nice guy she did ok but her character wasn't that difficult but in family Gu, personally, she was the best among the young ones, her story was interesting too. Definitly, an actrees to keep an eye on.

I'm looking forward her movie with Woo bin and this drama (even if I think the leads don't match at all, and she should be the lead xD)

Yay! PSh, is back...I like LjS when he plays serious , less cute roles ...so I hope this one will be more about a common guy andd won't have that cuteness that takes away the realistic part of the role , and makes you think that he's not even a teenager. Weird cause, Yoon Shi Yoon acts with the same bits but i can see him as a man ie an adult.
I hope i have time to watch this...xD

I'd honestly much rather have Kim Young Kwang play the lead role. Lee Jong Seok's acting bothers me: stiff sometimes, over-the-top the other times.

But of course SBS will want to sell this drama overseas, so you bring in the big guns (even if those guns can't aim very well).

And Park Shin Hye? I predict many dead fish kissing scenes. Bets on whether or not her eyes would be open or closed during those scenes.

Not a fan of saesang fans IRL, but LYB's character sounds the most interesting out of the lot. The rest... not quite, especially the dudes'.

Still, I liked IHYV and the premise so I will definitely give this a try despite my nonchalance towards the leads.

@Knookey
A journalist revealed that "scandal" was actually created by internet journalists who intentionally cut and abused his airport pictures and video on that day for clicks. When journalists don't have any controversies to milk for clicks and money, they simply create them... and  LJS's case is a well known example among Korean netizens.

arghhh.. im contemplating right now whether to search for netizenbuzz or not. I like LJS as an actor but the other comments seem to say that what LJS did was really bad :(

0

We are probably the only two in the room who feels that way with regards to LJS's acting. I found him serviceable in IHYV when he's acting out the character's everyday moments, but not quite in the emotional scenes. I caught KYK in WC and I thought he was pretty good overall in that in spite of my immense hatred for his character. Still, I can see how he is more appealing > KYK to the general populous. Sigh, I was hoping for Hong Jong Hyun to star in this because I honestly think he deserves the opportunity and more attention at present.

PSH... She really needs to stop picking vanilla roles and this unfortunately sounds more of the same old. Hopefully it isn't.

Would be great if there isn't much romance in this series so lesser reason to sell it (hence, lesser intimate scenes) and also because this sounds like something that would be more interesting without romance.

Required fields are marked *

I think PSH('s people) is(are) able to predict when a drama would do well financially. For a drama to do well with her in it, people would expect a romance. So I'm afraid your wish won't come true.

Oh well, we can only hope there will come a time when PSH will be forced to kiss properly on-screen. Besides isn't that the point of acting? You convey the character fully, not shutting down at the romantic scenes.

Required fields are marked *

Haha, yeah, as long as the romance isn't central to the story. I think I'm more interested in seeing these dweebs deal with problems they face in the broadcast workplace. That itself has a lot of fodder.

I totally agree with you about kissing. But I don't think the kissing is so much as a problem for me as her general body language in intimate scenes is. She literally stiffens up when the male leads touch her.

I personally think she generally does the job well but very technically, if you know what I mean. I rather watch someone with lesser experience and wonkier acting skills but plays her character with more heart. Like Go Ara for example (BTW, not a fan of hers, just an example).

Yeah I can imagine the hi-jinks will be strong in this drama for the first few episodes, then things will slow down once the romance kicks in. I notice this happens a lot with the big network dramas, while TvN (I'm turning into such a TvN fangirl) manages to keep some dramas staying strong and quick-paced.

Yeah I agree with you completely! I liked her acting in Flower Boy Next Door and was honestly impressed. Another actress better at conveying emotions during intimate scenes would be better, after all, it IS the romance that sells.

Though you know, I do have a theory of why she kisses the way she does: to allow the girls/women watching to easily place themselves in her shoes kissing that character. Think about it, she acts as the blank, and they'll fill in the blanks with the image of them making out with the lead. I know I did the same with the kiss in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (damn that was so hot).

I like LJS too.

SBS probably picked him because he has a lot of fans. I was honestly hoping he would turn down the drama when PSH chose to be the female lead, cause she might ruin this drama.

i trust the IHYV writer and I hope this drama does well and is fun to watch despite people already being against it.

I would tell people who don't like LJS's acting, that he is new, and getting better with every role. He was good in Doctor Stranger, but the plot was horrible.

Here's hoping the writing and directing team can mold this cast into something great.

Park Shin Hye playing a character to HAS to be aggressive instead of passive to get the job done should be a great opportunity for her. She will need to make sure the director and script don't let every male she has a scene with dominate her.

I expect Lee Yubi to crackle in every scene. She don't let nothin' get past her.

Can't say I'm too excited by the premise or the character descriptions - save from Yubi's former saesang turned news reporter. Perhaps we can all learn something here, guys! (Though saesang sounds a tad extreme...)

But if we learnt anything from IHYV, it's don't trust the promo materials. Looking forward to the writer/director combo and hoping this drama does not disappoint. Have gotten my expectations up way too high a couple of times this year.

reply

Required fields are marked *

I think the point Crisp is trying to make is that there are other young, (perhaps more?) talented actors out there but lead roles and CFs are only going to the same select pool of actors.

And LJS is a prime (but not the only) example. I mean, he's practically everywhere. I'm not saying he's not talented, but he is definitely overrated and hardworking to a fault. At this rate he's going, he is only going to peak way too early for his liking.

They seem to be always the ones getting the leading roles for both movies and dramas. I feel like I see them everywhere. I guess I like to see a mix of leading men. Is that too much to ask?

I know, I know. It's all about money and popularity. That's why idols have better opportunities in getting leading roles because of their immense fan-base.

I feel bad, but I've come to see Park Shin Hye's presence in a drama as a point against it. I used to like her, but now she's a grown adult and she's still playing roles as if she was 13. Excessive wide-eyed innocence, goody-goody naivete, and yes, horrible kisses. At this point I'd really love to see her play a role with some maturity, bite, and dating experience. Inability to lie coupled with hiccuping does NOT seem like a step in the right direction.

Really excited about Lee Jong Suk and "I can hear your voice" writer-directer teaming up again.It was one of my most favorite drama of 2013.Also Lee Bo Young played a huge factor in that.

Lee Yubi has played a handful of small roles,but i thoroughly enjoyed her in those and always wanted to see more of her acting chops,the girl is pretty talented.

Just completed "white Christmas" and watching "Plus nine boys" so Kim Young Kwang is winning my heart all around.

The only turn off about the drama is Park shin hye. I really used to look forward to her projects,but one project after the other,she fails to catch my interest.she just seems so....vacant.

Anyways still looking forward to it.

Give Park Shin Hye a break. I think with the right role she will shine in no time and she is still young too. She has got a great screen presence which is a plus for her.

I like Park Shin Hye but like you said, it's dependent on the role. Heirs was godawful because it gave her nothing to do, but she did have good chemistry with Kim Woo-bin and Yoon Shi-yoon (none at all with Lee Min-ho) and I'm hoping Lee Jong-seok will bring it back out in her.

(and please, no dead fish kisses, I'd rather have no kissing at all than the kind where the girl stands there and looks repulsed by lip contact)

LJS! He will bring me to watch it but I am not sure it's enough to make me stay to watch PSH. I only seen her in Flower Boy next door & Heirs and I was not really impressed with her roles but despite that, I found her acting to be good.

Reading the synopsis of this drama, it seems this may turn out to be a good role for her plus she is teamed up with the director and writer from IHYV. This might be the break out drama for her.

YAY!! LJS is back in another drama. I haven't seen the dramas the second leads have been in, but the cast looks promising...except for PSH.

I am just tired of PSH being cast as the damsel in distress. This is 2014, I know South Korea is still a vary patriarchal society because of the influence of Confucianism, but come on. The networks need to stop casting her in those roles too. If she is ever going to grow as an actress, she needs to play better characters. Hopefully this writer-director team can bring a great performance out of her WITH a character that is not a damsel.

Also excited to see LJS play a nerdy introvert! Sounds so cute. If the writer finishes the script early, maybe we can avoid SBS steering the drama plot based on viewer ratings
too!

Have to comment here because I am LJS fan. Always feel bad when I read all the LJS bashing comments. But I guess that is how it works.

I feel sad that the whole world does not love LJS :-) You have no idea what you are missing!!!

I think he is the best of his generation (early twenties to mid twenties) - (including the alien).

I adore him and will watch anything he is in at least three times. If the drama is bad, I will watch only his scenes.

Now that is off my chest, I am looking forward to the drama not just for LJS but also because of the team. I hope it will be a good one.

Because Dr. Stranger writer/director team did disservice to LJS.

I know... :-) But I don't think they are better but they are his equal. Because I am his fan, I get to say he is the best :-)

I have to confess, Park Shin-hye never immerse herself in any role that she ever been. Park Shin-hye and Jin Sae Young (Doctor Stranger's LJS's pair) are the same, only one face no other expression. This is the big issue that I start to worry on this project. Last time, I suffer from watch Lee Joug Suk try to interact with Jin Sae Young in Doctor Stanger. It so annoying! Feel bad for hard work Lee Jong Suk. This time, I afraid those feeling will come back after watch one face of Park Shin-hye interact with Lee Jong Suk in pinocchio.

Do the writers really think that watching PSH awkwardly hiccuping through a lie would be funny? Or, is it to show how being honest is what good people are? I wish they would give her a character who lies all the time all day long to get her evil way without guilt. Now THAT would be growth for her acting.

Otherwise, we get pretty predictable scenarios where a she remains a goodie-two shoes and charms with her bland goodness.

How about:
Job hunter tries to lie at interview, but tells the truth and gets hired any way.
or
News rookie on live television is told to report on a public figure who she just found out is doing a bad [fill in the blank] thing. News rookies gets asked directly about this bad thing and has to squirm to get around answering truthfully or lying and hiccuping. PD screams into his head piece mic, knowing friend watches from the sidelines in horror, and has to come up with a way to get her off screen quickly.

How about:
News rookie gets called into the police and asked about said bad thing, or worse, gets called to testify in court.

I laughed at Jim Carrey dealing having to tell the truth in "Liar, Liar" and I remember Ann Hathaway in "Ella Enchanted" handling this set up well.

Please writers who wrote IHYV, give PSH an edge. Make her cut a person. Neither of the female leads in IHYV were nice and easy and that is why we loved that show so much.

I think that with a character that hiccups while lying we'll hopefully get a character that will learn how to lie, and do it well. Though I agree it would have been really interesting for the character to be one that lied all the time. When everything unravels for them and they need to fix all those broken relationships... It would be a great role to play. But I think something along those lines would have been more of a melo and that's not what they're doing here.

Is this going to be another drama where second female lead outshines the female lead, acting and character-wise?

Too bad Kim Young-kwang is not the lead. May give it a try for him and Lee Pil-mo

Excited to see Park Shinhye, Lee Pilmo & Byun Heebong!
It's an oppurtunity for me to have these 3 talented veteran actors to act together.

I didn't enjoy much IHYV so hopefully thru this drama i could fully embrace them.

I also look forward to the rest of the cast which i haven't seen yet.

can't wait for November.

Hmm I'm curious about Lee Yu Bi but the plot sounds uninteresting. And ugh Park Shin Hye being the perfectly good girl again?
