On September 4, Park Shin Hye’s agency, S.A.L.T Entertainment announced that the actress has confirmed her casting in “Pinocchio” as the lead female character named Choi In Ha.
The actress will be taking on the role of a social affairs reporter who has a “Pinocchio complex,” which appears in the form of hiccups whenever she tells a lie.
“Pinocchio” is the work of writer Park Hye Ryun and PD Jo Soo Won, who also worked together on “I Hear Your Voice.”
Park Shin Hye’s reps shared that the actress came to decide on this drama after much consideration as her next production following the drama “The Heirs” and movie “The Royal Tailors,” due to the charming story of love, failure, as well as growth and development of young people in their 20s.
Meanwhile, “Pinocchio” will begin airing this November after the completion of “My Lovely Girl.”
