It has been confirmed that actor Lee Jong Suk will be starring in “Pinocchio” as the lead male role alongside actress Park Shin Hye, who also announced her casting in the drama last week.
The actor will be taking on the character of Choi Dal Po in the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama scheduled to begin airing in November. Lee Jong Suk is prepared to display his sincere acting by transforming into his role as a social affairs reporter.
A SBS representative shared, “Actor Lee Jong Suk, whom we’ve had in mind as the character of Dal Po for a long time, has made his decision for casting. We are looking forward to the birth of another great production in the second half of the year through Lee Jong Suk’s developed acting.”
A representative of Lee Jong Suk’s agency revealed, “[He] has consistently been receiving love calls from the director and writer even while he was filming his previous project, as they were planning the production with him in mind for the role of Dal Po. It’s an honor for him to work with such great staff once again. Please look forward to it.”
“Pinocchio” is the work of writer Park Hye Ryun and director Jo Soo Won, who also worked together to create the popular drama “I Hear Your Voice,” through which Lee Jong Suk earned much love from viewers.
