Real Charmer: 7 Reasons To Look Forward To Park Hyung Sik’s Return On Screen
A couple of years seems like a forever wait when our favorite Korean stars are serving their mandatory military service, but everything becomes much sweeter when they are officially discharged. These questions are often asked: Will they look quite different? Will they come back stronger than ever? Which project are they going to choose first?
Park Hyung Sik is back again to charm viewers on screen after having been officially discharged at the beginning of 2021. We couldn’t think of a better start to the year, and with recent news of his first project in discussion, we’re giving you more reasons to celebrate his return!
Your day will be brighter with his infectious smile
It’s no secret that Park Hyung Sik has a beautiful, gleaming smile that’s sure to make everyone’s hearts skip a beat. He has been known as one of the “mood makers” of ZE:A with his equally bright personality. Now that he’s back, he’ll be able to spread positivity and bring joy to everyone fortunate enough to encounter him!
Have fun watching his duality
While he often looks like a cute and happy-go-lucky person, he also has a dark, brooding, and charismatic side. Fans often find it hard to choose which personality they like more, but luckily we’ll get to see the best of both soon!
All his K-drama characters are memorable
Park Hyung Sik started out in dramas playing mischievous, funny roles that you can’t help but root for, and these adorable characters made a big impression. But throughout the years, he has grown into an actor who can carry different roles and stories that showcase his versatility.
He made us fall head-over-heels with his bossy yet cute character in “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.”
He also made us think and dig deeper with his smart, witty character in the law drama “Suits.” He’s played several other roles that are worth the mention, but whatever role he pursues, he’ll surely grab viewers’ attentions and make it an unforgettable one.
He looks amazing in historical dramas
If you enjoyed his role in “Hwarang,” you might be able to watch him again in a comeback through the upcoming tvN sageuk tentatively called “The Golden Hairpin.” According to an official statement from his agency, “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. It seems like the upcoming drama will have a mix of everything that makes a drama addicting: romance, fantasy, and murder mystery. And another reason to watch? We just might get to see him wear beautiful Korean traditional clothing again!

He has a sweet singing voice
It’s no surprise that Park Hyung Sik is really multi-talented, especially when he shows his roots as a singer. Hopefully we’ll get to hear him sing again for his new drama!
