Park Shin-hye headlines Pinocchio as reporter who can’t lie

Ah, so now we have the reason behind Pinocchio’s title — the drama features a heroine who can’t tell a lie. She’s a character who suffers from Pinocchio syndrome (I think it’s called different things, but they mean a condition where your body shows a physical sign whenever you lie), which makes her hiccup whenever she isn’t being honest.

That’s a pretty cute conundrum to put a drama character in, since I’m just imagining all the ways that could become embarrassing in the presence of a crush or an unpleasant boss. I don’t know how realistic the condition is, but coming from the producers of I Hear Your Voice, I’m prepared to just count it as a random mutant ability/curse anyway. It can’t possibly be weirder than hearing people’s inner thoughts, could it?

Park Shin-hye (Heirs) has now confirmed that she’ll be headlining, which isn’t a surprise; Lee Jong-seok (Doctor Stranger) is still considering, but I expect the confirmations for everyone else to start rolling in pretty soon. Lee Yubi (Gu Family Book) and Kim Young-kwang (Plus Nine Boys) are up to play the second leads, in what will likely be a rookie foursome much like the one in You’re All Surrounded.

The SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama from the writer-director team behind I Hear Your Voice will be a coming-of-age story featuring twentysomething cub reporters at the city news desk. They dive into an environment where every day is a battleground, and spend 24 hours a day together chasing the latest stories. It’s described as a drama about youth, love, failures, and growing up.

Park Shin-hye’s heroine chooses to be a reporter because of her inability to lie without a case of the hiccups. I don’t really know how useful that is for a career in journalism compared to the ability to detect other people’s lies, but we’ll go with it. Hopefully she’ll be a lively character with lots of spunk and winsome flaws to scrub that depressing Heirs girl from my brain.

Pinocchio follows She’s So Lovable in November.

I was mildly dissapointed with Gapdong, the last drama of this writer but I liked IHYV enough to get excited for this but then again it's Park Shin Hye headlining.

Just borrowing your post. Lee Jong-seok is currently first on search rankings... and there are articles about him and pinocchio as well as articles about him and suzy. I'm guessing there's 2 possibilities if his name is trending, the first is he's casted in pinocchio already, and the second is he's dating (perhaps rumored) suzy. Can someone enlighten me on what's happening?

Oh @ you implying that just because he is a certain way, it makes him less of a man. Good old ignorance and insecurities about masculinity.

Yes - b/c he is a certain way, he is less "manish."

No one refers to Justin Bieber as "manly."

Yeah, some girls don't like manly guys but I don't think Suzy is one of them.

And there are other K-actors who aren't "manly" who have more of an appeal than LJS.

@bd5

There is not just one way to be a man, your viewpoint is outdated and derives from sexism. He can act any way he wants and still be a man. Just because he doesn't let society pressure him into acting macho does not mean he's less of a man than any other guy. And if you're talking about his looks then that's equally misguided. Don't try to backtrack, you originally didn't say "manly", you said "a man".

Like I said, this is from ignorance and insecurities. I hope you're young because if you're an adult who never learned any better-- that's just sad. It's never too late to educate yourself though, I'm rooting for you lol.

current articles about LJS include:
- he is rumored t be dating miss a's suzy (JYPE says its not true; i think his side is saying they barely know each other?)

- he was offered a role in pinocchio; is considering it favorably

Yay? PSH has just never been an actress I look forward to seeing. I hope this role is as spunky as Lee Bo Youngs in IHYV. She needs to play a different character imo.

I am also seriously suffering from Lee Jong-Seok fatigue. Would love her paired with someone else.

I wish the second female lead was the main lead tbh.

Well said, we are surely getting more PSH for a while. I'm glad for her popularity. She is nice and talented , and deserves what she has. I don't understand why people hate her that much, I agree she is a horrible kisser and she ruins all those romantic kissing scenes, but come on korean dramas don't have such passionate kisses either. Plus, you can't just her acting based on that, she is cute, she can cry, she can act hurt and painful characters and get chemestry in and behind the set...i'm glad she's back and I hope this drama makes her shine and keep going forward on her career

Is this what is happening when we don't see certain actors around much? I swear some actors go from project to project to project with no breaks in between, (Park Hae Jin, Lee Bum Soo, Lee Jong Seok, Jin Se Yon), and then there are those who I wait forever to announce their next projects. Is it the lack of offers or are they just being picky?

Well I don't know about supporting actors, but for lead actors who get both scripts and endorsement deals thrown at them, this is sometimes the case. For example, Wonbin (I love him though, I'm just using him as a popular example) has been criticized by knetizens for not taking an acting job in years but still appearing in cfs year round.

In fact, the role suits her. She is quite the nun type...I believe this is the reason why I liked her so much in You are so beautiful, and disliked her anywhere else.

So, despite my initial disappointment, I will look forward to this drama. Lee Jong Seok and Lee Yubi are so damn good, and Park Shin Hye does well the naive+wooden thing. Maybe they will make a good combination :D

I'm excited for this! It sounds unique enough to be fun. And it's not that crazy when you consider the reactions some people have when they lie - blushing, stammering. This could be seen as an extreme extension of that, if you're looking for an explanation :).

I read somewhere the two leads will be uncle and niece, through some weird family thing, even though they're the same age. So, no love line -that will be new. Does this mean no romance? I find that idea surprisingly appealing.

School 2013 had no romance, and it was fantastic for it because they developed the other kinds of relationships so well.

Also, the leads are uncle and niece?! That's a new one, though I would be even happier if that meant Lee Jong-seok's love line would be with Lee Yubi. (is it even true, and would SBS even allow two of Korea's hottest young stars to headline a drama and not have a loveline together?!)

Maybe the variety shows did it, I don't know. I was looking forward to this drama though, so it's somewhat disappointing. I'll try to go into it with an open mind though - maybe it's just the roles she's been choosing lately.

A character challenged with lying isn't a new concept either, starting with Pinocchio, but you can find more examples (of all kinds) easily: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CanNotTellALie

The hiccupping then? Si On was hiccuping in Good Doctor not all that long ago. Not permanently, but also in specific situations.

It might well score high ratings, but at the moment that's probably down to the casting / writer-team (IHYV).

She's at least done some movies, though - other tv superstars like Lee Seung-gi and Lee Min-ho didn't make a movie until this year. She's got a sageuk coming out sometime later this year, too.

I feel like she experiments a little more with her movies and for the most part, uses tv roles as popularity tools. (which I am fine with because I liked FBND a lot).

I like PSH for the most part. I think she is a perfectly capable actress and is likeable on screen, though I do think she sometimes has trouble injecting life into underwritten characters (e.g. Heirs). The writers of IHYV have proven they can write female characters who aren't the typical cookie cutter candy heroines, though I think a lot of the credit should also go to Lee Bo Young who was able to make the character so likeable. In all, I don't think PSH is the most interesting choice but I think she's in good hands with this project so I think she will be fine. At the very least it can't be any worse than Heirs...

Lee Bo young is awesome, but the writer does write winning leading characters.. But in the 2"dramas that i know she wrote, i think she follows a specific formula for leads' characterizations and story arcs. Dream High & IHYV- Hyemi & hyesung as the prickly, arrogant, opinionated, frank, blunt heroines who are rootable and become more likable each ep, Samdong and Sooha as the intelligent, forgiving, passionate, totally in love & utterly devoted hero, Jingook(shihyuk) & lawyer kwangwoo as the utterly decent, good-looking, dependable 2nd lead heroine initially crushes on, baekhee and doyeon the short haired, ambitious frenemy who's ultimately likable.. Even though I would like the writer to draw out different characterizations & think her capable, even the same formula wd still make the show enjoyable & maybe help revive Shinhye's name, which is in a crapper after Heirs much like Gu Hyesun's, post BoF.. PSH works best in non-cutesy, serious roles like ToH & FBND, & it only worked in YAB since her charac ws an innocent nun.. A college co-ed or world-weary being all wide-eyed innocent doesn't suit her.. Concern, sadness, glaring, touched - these expressions R more natural & suited fr her..

Your comment describes exactly how I feel :) I'm rather neutral on her, but in well-written roles I like her quite a bit. So with this team, I actually think she has a really great shot at stepping it up because in IHYV its characters were its strong point. And this premise sounds pretty fun so far and has a pretty good foursome in the works so I'M stoked.

I like PSH as a person.. As an actress though, I think she can be better if she or her agency ever decide to take some risks and give her roles that show some range like a heroine that's a bit immoral or someone that kicks butt. Also, enough with the wide eyed lip smacks. Normal people never kiss like that.

You are reading my mind. I think PSH is such a nice girl, i think she is pretty and i always feel bad saying how basic and mediocre she is as an actress .

But i feel that could change if she took on a riskier role and stoped playing it safe. This drama is one more proof of that.It`s basically the same thing she played in FBND and YAB only in reporter world. I hope there is more twist to this drama and her character with some dark elements and any hint of complexity.

But i noticed her fans only care of her getting high ratings and popularity awards. They don`t want to see her develop as an actress as long as she is popular. That`s maybe the reason she is taking the safe route.

I don't think it's totally fair regarding FBND. It was supposed to be a completely different character for her. Sad, depressed, neurotic, not just shy and wide eyed which is how she played. So maybe she is unable to go to a darker or even a little bit more complex place.
But that's just my opinion, many people liked her role and her portrayal there.

I agree. FBND was a character she could experiment with and actually make a lot more neurotic and darker. I do like her modeling, and I don't hate her as a person but I do believe her range as an actress is too limited for the dramas of today. Kdrama fans are just expecting more to connect with characters and Park Shin Hye can't deliver.

I have to say, I don't get the Park Shin-hye dislike/hate. I like her. I don't think she's a phenomenal actress, but I think she's a good one, at the very least. I've liked her ever since I saw You're Beautiful, one of the first dramas I've ever seen. I think that it's not her acting ability that should be called into serious question (though I do think she could improve), but the writing of some of the dramas she takes. She can only do so much with the material she's given. If the writing is subpar, then the acting will be too. That's what I think, anyway. You people can take it however you want.

I will say that your comment has a lot of merit. But as an artist, part of the package includes the roles you decide to play and the depth you translate into your characters. Most of the dislike of PSH, from what I read, is not personal, but merely an expression of how people dislike her take on the characters she plays and the dimensions she introduces into her character.

Also, the fact that most, if not all, of her roles are similar, she's always the protagonist, damsel in distress, never the antagonist, and it's almost always a rom-com, not a murder mystery, family drama or anything else.

Also, if you copied and pasted her character from one drama to the next, there's very little difference in how they are played, so it gets boring.

For someone with as much acting history as she has, and as popular as she is, the audience expects MORE and when she doesn't deliver, they are disappointed. Now, if this happened with only one drama, it would be easier to ignore, but it seems to be a repeated problem, and it eventually turns the viewers off her as an actress.

Her role in Cyrano, for instance, was borderline vixen, but compared to the number of international fans who watch dramas, international fans don't tend to watch movies as much, so aren't aware when an actor has done a break from the usual on the big screen.

She's not a great actress, but in many respects she is a good one - far better than the likes of Shin Se-kyung or Jin Se-yeon (who hardly ever seem to vary their facial expressions onscreen, no matter whether they vary their roles or not).

I like Park Shin Hye in the first 2-3 episodes of every drama, but the problem with her is that she does not follow through with characters as well as the part that she is like a wood puppet that has no emotions... In the past I've blamed the writing because in most cases the characters are not well written and the material seems to be vague, but at some point you have to somewhat blame the actor too, it's the actors job to give depth to a character, she's fallen short of doing that on a few occasions. And even if I like the writer and Lee Jeong Seok if the acting is sub par, for me, the appeal of the drama will be gone.

I just hope she's not playing another Eun Sang. I trust the writers to give me another spunky Hye Sung.

PSH is almost as bad an actress as Gu Hye Sun but at least GHS is prettier. Not going to be able to watch this even though Lee Jong Seok will be in it.

Gu Hye Sun has actually improved a lot. Did you watch her recent drama - Angel Eyes? None of the usual quirkiness or unease in front of the camera. She was very natural.

I think she took off a few years decided to revamp her acting after putting a lot of thought into it and she was successful by all accounts.

I really need her to NOT be a candy. Losing faith, Park Shin-hye. And no, it's not just the candy characters, it's also how she plays them. Hope this is good!

Main thing I'm hoping for: please do not channel You're Beautiful and pull out that overly cutesy hiccup. Damn, I found Go Mi-nam one of the least tolerable role of hers.

Never really been keen on Park Shin Hye, but found her okay in Cyrano and Don't Worry, It's a Ghost. Perhaps she just needs to play against type and take a break from those weepy roles (heh, the first time I ever saw her was in Stairway to Heaven and we all know how that drama was...). Hopefully, the script will be able to work its magic on her, because the writer here is the main draw for me.

compared to actresses like "Park Bo Young","Song Hye Kyo","Go Ara","Moon Chae Won","Han Hyo Joo","Ha Ji Won" & "Shin Min-ha",Park Shin Hye's acting TOTALLY SUCKS!! She is 25 years old & may have grown up as a girl,but she has NOT grown up as an ACTRESS!!

I know that her personality is good but I her acting really LEAVES much to be desired!

Nah, I've been following this discussion for a couple of years now and they really, really just think she's a bad actress. She has a good glow on camera, but she seems to only pick roles--or gets roles picked for her--in which she simpers and looks sad and contributes nothing else to the scene.

I ran across a scene from Heirs that someone posted because of Lee Min Ho. The two male leads quarrel over Park Shin Hye's character in a restaurant, the argument moves out to a pool, and eventually she gets thrown into the pool. And all through the complex scene, her character just looks wimpy and hurt, hardly moves except to get from place to place or when one of the men pushes or pulls her, and is essentially just an object the two men are fighting over. No feelings or words or actions of her own.

I agree with you, but I don't think anything from Heirs should be used as an argument against her acting. And especially not the one you used? That scene requires nothing from her than what you stated. And especially since the writing of Heirs itself makes her character /just/ an object that two men are fighting over... I don't think it's exactly a point of contention why people think she's frustrating there. I'm not a fan, but PSH actually pulled a solid enough performance to warrant her some respect with the bloody fucking awful character she got stuck with.

park shin hye is really one note as an actress. She's good in crying scenes and that's about it. She has a tendency to overact and pull O_O faces. I will say that she has a very likeable face and that's why I've never disliked her

Wait, do you know PSH in real life? Or just by interviews?

I mean, she totally acted like a diva at dramafever awards, she is sweet with her fans and on screen, but the staff suffers to please her. ( At least the staff from drama fever awards )

Opinion: As a foreigner of Korea this I can say, I watched dramas and movies ranging from hollywood, bollywood, latin america and other asian countries, and I can honestly say that Ms. Shin Hye Park is a credible actress, She can definitely deliver. I was introduced into korean dramas and movies through Ms. PHS's acting in the movie entitled "Miracle in Cell No. 7". Now, I am so into Korean dramas, movies and music because of PSH. It is so frustrating for foreigners to not be able to watched these dramas at its scheduled airing w/o having to wait for months to watch it. I cannot understand why Koreans are not proud that PSH is within their reach, as many foreigners love her.

In the synopsis LJS and PSH characters are uncle and niece by law only, but not for real. The story is LJS's parents die and he changes his identity and name and have to keep it a secret so he becomes PSH's "uncle". So yeah there will be romance between the two leads.

Not really a fan, and pretty neutral about the prospect of LJS and PSH together. But reading through these comments, I'm sorta disappointed. Wil DB become one of those sites where I won't be able to muster through the comments section bc people are being needlessly hostile and mean?

It's been for quite a while now. SOME of the posters here feel the need to project that they have superior tastes when it comes to choosing which actors to support and dramas to watch. And basically they cannot take criticisms themselves, but they find it perfectly fine to criticize k-actors because apparently, an anonymous poster in the internet's feelings is far more important and precious than an objectified entertainer from a foreign land.

Lol, it's Park Shin-hye! Haters gon' hate.

Though I agree with most of the comments here regarding her acting and overall awkwardness, I still like her and is a fan, so I'm definitely looking forward to this drama. Lee Jong-suk or not, I'm sure it'll be a fun watch. Also intrigued in the story and character descriptions.

It would take A LOT of spunk to rid the impression of her role in Heirs. I remember yelling at the screen 'Why?!' many times.

Love PSH and this characterization sounds interesting. I am sure she'll appear cute while hiccuping. Hwaiting! It'll be cute to be paired up with Lee Jong Suk!

I never watched Heirs so I can't speak on her acting there but she bores me as an actress which I almost feel bad saying because she seems like such a sweetheart in real life. Maybe she could surprise us, who knows? LJS doesn't intrigue me much either but he's still considering anyway.

The premise sounds pretty silly so the execution is going to be important. I'd have less doubts if it was being aired on TVN, just my current bias.

HEIRS is currently the most popular Korean drama in the world. The survey was done by Showbiz Korea with 188 countries participating in it. This news was aired by Showbiz Korea via Arirang TV (Korean Channel).

40% causcasians and 26% latinos or latin Americans watched it at least on Drama fever, only 15% including yourself, Asians watched it through Dramaf ever.

I am a fan of PSH and she is one of my top korean actress. I am very supportive of all dramas and m6vies. It is so annoyiing to read all those ugly comments of her. I personally feel she does not deserves them at all. You gugs are too fast tn draw the line. All the roles she has choosen to play SHE CAN DELIVER.
