Park Ji Hoon Gives A Chilling Warning To Stop The Violence In New Posters For “Weak Hero”
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Weak Hero” is an action school drama starring Park Ji Hoon as Yeon Si Eun, a model student who excels at school but is physically frail—making him an easy target for bullies who are jealous of his top grades. Though Yeon Si Eun appears weak on the outside, he eventually uses his brain to win his battles as he fights back against the violence that unfolds both inside and outside of school along with his classmates Su Ho (Choi Hyun Wook) and Bum Seok (Hong Kyung).
Recently, the drama was invited to the On Screen section of this year’s Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) where the first three episodes were screened and received great praise for its high quality production.
The newly released posters depict Park Ji Hoon’s transformation into Yeon Si Eun. Although Yeon Si Eun looks indifferent, his piercing gaze full of malice conveys his deep backstory, making viewers greatly intrigued.
Another poster captures Yeon Si Eun looking lonely as he tightly grasps a brick in one hand, creating further anticipation for his unexpected side and action scenes. The texts on both posters chillingly read, “I asked you to stop.”
A representative of wavve shared, “The first set of posters put at the forefront Yeon Si Eun, who confronts violence in order to survive in the jungle-like school. It is due to Park Ji Hoon’s acting skills that [viewers] can feel just through the posters that this is a differentiated story of weak hero Yeon Si Eun, who looks weak but has an expression and gaze that convey he will never be a pushover. Please look forward to the new challenge by Park Ji Hoon, who has tremendous talent for acting, as well as the ‘Weak Hero’ that he will depict.”
