ZE:A‘s Park Hyung Sik has gotten the lead role for an upcoming drama.
On April 9, one representative from the drama production told Sports Daily, “Park Hyung Sik has been confirmed for the lead role in SBS‘s new drama ‘The Chaebol’s Daughter‘ (tentative English title).”
Park Hyung Sik will be playing the role of Yoo Chang Soo, the director of a department store. He is someone who grew up in a luxurious background and has never even tied his own shoes before. He seems empty-headed with his good looks, spending extravagant amounts of money and playing around with his friends, but he is very confident in himself, thinking that the department store will surely be handed down to him. And one day, he starts showing interest in a girl working at a food market.
This will be Park Hyung Sik’s first main role for a drama since his debut. Before getting this role, he appeared in “The Heirs” as Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye‘s friend, and in “What’s With This Family” as the youngest immature sibling in the family.
The new drama follows the story of a woman who is seeking a man who can love her even if she isn’t a chaebol’s daughter, as well as a man who comes from a poor family and believes that love is like a carrot that upper class people use to dangle in front of lower class people as a means of controlling them. It will show how love and money effect humanity.
Producer Choi Young Hoon who produced the dramas “War of the Roses” (2011) and “Five Fingers” (2012) will be the director, and the writer of the drama “Can We Get Married?” (2013) will be at the script.
“The Chaebol’s Daughter” will air in June as the follow-up drama after “Heard It Through the Grapevine.”
