Park Ji Hyun Talks About How She Prepared For Her Role In Upcoming Drama

Park Ji Hyun has revealed how she prepared for her role in SBS’s upcoming drama “Flex x Cop”!

“Flex x Cop” is a drama that depicts the growth and romance of an immature third-generation chaebol who becomes a detective. The drama will be penned by scriptwriter Kim Ba Da of “My Name” and helmed by producing director Kim Jae Hong of “Steal Heart” and “My Love Eun Dong.”

Park Ji Hyun plays Lee Kang Hyun, the Homicide Department’s first female team leader and a veteran detective who graduated from a police university. Lee Kang Hyun is a workaholic who has a strong sense of responsibility and takes pride in being a police officer, and she also has exceptional investigative and social skills, as well as a flexible mindset. However, her detective life faces a major turning point when she meets Jin Yi Soo (Ahn Bo Hyun), who unexpectedly becomes her investigative partner.

Park Ji Hyun made her acting debut in 2017 through the MBC drama “The King Loves,” and she first gained recognition as an actress through the film “Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum” before rising to stardom through the 2022 drama “Reborn Rich.” Park Ji Hyun’s rapid rise as a beloved actress is attributed to her solid acting skills and her ability to bring any character to life. Many viewers may not be aware that she also starred in the dramas “Do You Like Brahms?” and “Yumi’s Cells” before “Reborn Rich.”

Explaining how she prepared for her character in “Flex x Cop,” Park Ji Hyun shared, “To be able to properly embody the character of a police officer, I gained about 7 kilograms [approximately 15.4 pounds] of weight. I also practiced various breathing and vocalization techniques because the character’s tone and manner of speech are quite different from my previous characters.”

She continued, “It was also my first time acting in an action drama, so I practiced at an action school until I got the hang of it. Although there were many challenging aspects, I put in my best effort, so I hope you will tune in.”

“Flex x Cop” is set to premiere on January 26 at 10 p.m. KST.
