Park Hyung Sik In Talks For Historical Drama As First Project Following Military Discharge
Park Hyung Sik may be returning to the small screen with a riveting historical drama!
On March 19, an industry representative reported, “Park Hyung Sik will be making a comeback to the small screen with ‘The Golden Hairpin’ (working title), tvN’s most-anticipated project for the second half of the year.”
In response, a source from the actor’s agency United Artists Agency commented, “A positive discussion is underway after receiving an offer to appear in writer Jung Hyun Jung’s new project ‘The Golden Hairpin.'”
“The Golden Hairpin” revolves around a genius who wakes up one day to have her family be accused of murder and a prince suffering from a mysterious curse. Their story begins when they have a fateful meeting where they both recognize each other as their only savior. Although their relationship starts out as a transaction, it slowly grows into an inevitable romance.
Park Hyung Sik has been offered the role of Prince Lee Hwan, who has gone from being the most free-spirited soul to being the biggest cynic after rising to power following his father’s dethronement and brother’s death. He falls into a deeper abyss of darkness when his mother, his sole remaining family member and person he trusts, passes away soon after. He is a man of dauntless nature on the outside but is deeply rooted in desolation.
Park Hyung Sik has taken on a diverse set of roles in projects including “Hwarang,” “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon,” and “Juror 8.” He has reportedly been receiving several offers since his return from the military, and there is much anticipation for which project he will choose next.
The script for “The Golden Hairpin” will be written by Jung Hyun Jung, the writer behind the “I Need Romance” series, “Discovery of Love,” “Five Enough,” “Romance Is a Bonus Book,” and “Lovestruck in the City.”
