CASTING NEWS: Lee Jong Suk confirmed to co-star with Park Shin Hye in Pinocchio
It's official! Lee Jong Suk has signed on to play the lead in the upcoming K-drama Pinocchio alongside Park Shin Hye. It was only a few days ago that Park Shin Hye was confirmed to star in the drama. Now that Lee Jong Suk has joined, this drama just became even more exciting!
First off all, this drama is written and will be directed by the same two who wrote and directed I Hear Your Voice, which not only contained a fabulous storyline from beginning to end; but it really showcased Lee Jong Suk as an actor. Now, Lee Jong Suk will be playing the role of Choi Dal Po, but as of right now, his name was all the information given about his role.
Pinocchio itself is about Choi In Ha (Park Shin Hye), who works as a rookie reporter with the unfortunate "Pinocchio disorder," which causes her to hiccup every time she lies! The writer of the drama specifically had both Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk in mind during the creation of the characters.
At first I couldn't see these two together and never even paired them together in my mind, but after I saw a few photos of them from past photo shoots, I'm really excited, and I can't wait! If you doubt the coupling of these two, check out a few of their photos below!
