Park Hyung Sik might make his comeback soon!!
Ilgan Sports, recently reported that actor Park Hyung Sik had been cast as the protagonist in the upcoming tvN Kdrama series Happiness. The source from United Artists Agency clarified that he is not confirmed, but “he is positively reviewing the show.”
Kdrama “Happiness” will be an apocalyptic thriller which will be directed by producing director Ahn Gil Ho who also directed dramas like Record of Youth, Memories of the Alhambra, etc., and will be written by Han Sang Woon who had written The Good Wife, SPY. Director and writer have worked together on WATCHER.
This drama will showcase the place in a world where infectious diseases are the new normal. In a newly constructed apartment where the higher floors are up for general sales and the lower floors are rented out, the K-Drama shows the psychological battle and class discrimination in the building. The entire city suffers when an apocalypse hits in the form of a disease in which people suffer from unrelenting thirst.
If Park Hyung Sik accepts this offer he will be playing the role of the male lead Jung Yi Hyun, a violent crimes detective. He was a former up-and-coming baseball player in high school, but a knee injury forced him to quit, so he became a police officer instead. Han Hyo Joo is currently reviewing an offer to star as the female lead Yoon Sae Bom. It was also reported that Jo Woo Jin was cast as commander Han Tae Suk of the Armed Forces Medical Command.
Previously in last month Park Hyung Sik was in talks to star in The Golden Hairpin. The media outlet Sports Chosun reported that the K-Drama’s producers were originally planning to remake a Chinese original work, but they later decided to write their own new story due to current dispute where China refer Soutrh Korea as “Thief Country.” So the production was reportedly pushed back from June to September of this year, giving Park Hyung Sik time to star in a different series before it.
