Best of Park Hyung Sik: Hwarang, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, Happiness, Soundtrack #1

The South Korean actor turns 31 today and has been a part of some of the most loved and versatile roles.

Park Hyung Sik debuted as a member of the South Korean K-pop boy group ZE:A. He began appearing in multiple variety shows and musicals due to his command over both singing and acting as well as his handsome looks. He is known for his supporting appearances in dramas like The Heirs which have become iconic over time. He slowly gained fame through his many appearances and kept on working hard for the one breakthrough that would give him global recognition which arrived with Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Today on his 31st birthday, we take a look at the highlight roles of his life.

 

Spoiler

Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth
His first sageuk, Park Hyung Sik played the role of King Sammaekjeong of Silla. He would end up joining the group known as Hwarang as Kim Ji Dwi in disguise. His aim is to protect the throne and break through the bone rank system that comes to play in the Kingdom while his mother rules. As he comes of age, he must protect what is rightfully his. The squad of Hwarang is filled with men who are all unique and have their own stories. Hwarang served as the root cause of the friendship between Park Hyung Sik and Park Seo Joon, the two male leads who were then joined by BTS’ V who played the youngest Hwarang. While the show did not receive much praise on its release domestically, it has become an important piece of work that K-drama fans often go back to as the origin of the famous Wooga squad.

 

 

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
As Ahn Min Hyuk, Park Hyung Sik played the CEO of a gaming company, Ainsoft. He comes across a tiny girl named Do Bong Soon (Park Bo Young) with massive power and hires her to be his bodyguard. As the two fight against the evil with an aim to catch a kidnapper, they get closer and fall in love. The story is one of the most loved rom-coms of modern K-drama times and has received immense favor from fans around the world.

 

The lead couple has been showered with praise thanks to their infectious chemistry and adorable scenes. Meanwhile, a few behind-the-scenes clips of the two have garnered a separate fandom thanks to Park Hyung Sik’s wit.

 

Happiness
Park Hyung Sik’s first project after his return from the military was highly anticipated and it delivered just that fabulously. A unique take on a zombie-like virus, he acts as Jung Yi Hyun, a violent crimes detective who is in love with his high school friend Yoon Sae Bom (Han Hyo Joo). As the two face a deadly virus and decide to fake a marriage, they come across various testing situations. The husband-wife vibes from the lead couple as they battled a virus hit home for the fans who appreciated their portrayals as well as the storyline. Happiness is regarded as one of the most distinctive and memorable releases at the end of 2021.

 

Soundtrack #1
Han Seon Woo, played by Park Hyung Sik, is a very skilled photographer. As he tours around the world desperate to find his inspiration and seeks perfection with story-telling snaps being the aim of his work, he does not forget his feelings for his long time friend Lee Eun Soo (Han So Hee). Being too comfortable with each other they have not realised each other’s importance in their lives or they have and chose to ignore it. Fearing that taking another step further would one day mean that they have to end it all, the two decide to stay in their lanes, observing from far and tight-lipped about their feelings.

 

Until one, they end up living together for 2 weeks where he helps her with writing lyrics about love. They finally choose to take the leap and end up together.

 

While these role will be the ones defining his career, Park Hyung Sik’s presence in the ones like Suits and The Heirs will be known to avid fans who will notice the actor’s growth through the many years as he continues to climb the success ladder.

*** I re-watched his last drama, "Soundtrack #1". “Soundtrack #1” is a beautiful story of friendship and romance. With only 4 episodes this is very much the Sun-Woo and Eun-Soo show. No spoilers here but “Soundtrack #1” rounds out its story beautifully. My only complaint is – when PHS heads abroad and he’s literally gone for half an episode before returning. With a few more episodes, we perhaps could have been graced with understanding the yearning and wanting from that other character (I’m being careful not to spoil anything here!) but the show doesn’t quite manage to do that. It’s hard not to like what “Soundtrack #1” offers. Won't say it's a must watch, but definitely a short and sweet journey, which will entice you to core. The story is straightforward, but the manner in which it is told is entertaining.  :heart2:

7 K-Drama Male Actors Who We Would Love To See Play The Villain

 

Many actors are given praise for their performance as main leads or as a supporting role. These roles are often made to be the hero of the story and lean towards the side of good in the pursuit of justice. But in order for these K-Drama heroes to stand out, there must be a villain opposing them.

 

Usually, K-Drama villains exude a natural aura of evil or at least provide clear hints throughout the story. 

 

When a villain is able to trick everyone, including the viewers, you know that the drama is bound to be a hit.

7 K-Drama Male Actors Who We Would Love To See Play The Villain
 
Park HyungSik's characters are often swoon worthy because of his boyish good looks and smoldering gaze. But through action-packed thriller, "Happiness", we see that not even K-Drama heartthrobs are safe from zombification. Although his status as a zombie was only temporary, it makes you consider how Park HyungSik would act as an actual monster—or in this case, a real villain. We would probably become one of his first victims, falling for his irresistible charms.

Here Are The 25 Most Handsome Korean Actors

Did your favorite make the list?
 
KingChoice is a popular polling website where fans of K-Pop can participate in various polls put up on a semi-regular basis on topics such as idols, ships, songs, and other categories. These polls often draw in hundreds of thousands of votes total, so the results come from a pretty large pool of participants! While of course the resulting list will always be subjective, it’s still interesting to see who ends up on the top of the chart and whether or not your favorite artist ended up where you think they should.

K-Dramas Whose Titles Do Not Necessarily Match Their Plot Or Storyline

 

kdrama.png

 

Please note that is article is completely subjective. It is not meant to affix a negative message to these series, as they are all interesting with great lessons as well. Opinions and corrections are all welcome. 

“It has to be catchy, and it has to frame for the audience the context of the show.” - MTV Programming chief David Janollari on finding and creating the right title for a show or series.

Asides from the cast line, genre, or production agencies behind the series, oftentimes, the titles of a drama are what make people decide to watch them in the first instance. Just like every aspect of a film or production, the title of a drama often makes a difference as it sort of gives a sneak peek or almost encapsulates the storyline and makes a potential viewer have an idea, assumption, or understanding of what the series could be about.

 

Often times drama titles are sort of an introduction to the plot of a series while also sparking a sense of intrigue and desire in the minds of potential viewers. A good drama title has to be able to hook its audience, while it does have a link to the series, it should not be too vague, it is often preferably short, catchy, and something easily remembered. While there is a power that the cast or synopsis of the drama holds, we can never overlook the power of a great name or title.

“If a title really contextualizes the tone of a show, that’s a big factor in helping you launch a show and market and position it to an audience.” - MTV Programming chief David Janollari

In K-Dramas much like every other genre of dramas globally, the title is just as important as every other aspect of its production. It's so important that there are so many K-Dramas whose title names have been changed just a couple of weeks before their airing date. Dramas like "Goodbye Miss Ripley" was changed to "Ripley", and "My Love By My Side" was formerly named "Nice To Meet You". While there are never clear-cut reasons for name changes in K-Dramas, one can assume some probable answers like:

1) There is already a successful project with a similar name, hence that would dampen the possible positive response the series would've gotten.
2) As production develops, it would seem that the direction of the script or its tone might change hence the need to affix a title that suits its plot.
3) It is simply too long, doesn't test well with focus groups, or it is not memorable enough.

All this is to say that there is a tough, precise, and intricate process that goes into the decisive moment of naming a drama.

As we mentioned earlier, many K-Drama titles serve as an insight or sneak detail into the plot of the series. While there are some titles that perfectly match the plot and storyline of their series like "Ghost Doctor" which literally had a Ghost who was also a doctor and had the ability to possess another person's body and perform surgeries, or "Business Proposal" which had many scenes that conceptualized its title, and then we have a "Penthouse", which by its title alone, leads to an assumption that this story will be about the rich and affluent and probably in a quest for ultimate power and control. "It's Okay To Not Be Okay", a title that alludes to the fact that the series might be about or give insights into mental health issues, and "He is Psychometric", a drama that literally centers on a young boy with psychic abilities. Titles like these are clear-cut, not generic, and speak directly to the storyline of the series.

However, there are some that are simply just ambiguous or in complete contrast to the theme of their series. Perhaps set to instill a deeper meaning or spark conversations about some of the realities or context of the plots and stories they try to tell. Regardless of the reasons, these titles do not seem to match the plots or lessons of their series and are often tagged as "misleading".

 

 

1. "Happiness"

K-Dramas Whose Titles Do Not Necessarily Match Their Plot Or Storyline

tvN

 

The tvN thriller drama is perhaps one of that perfectly falls into this category. Again, there might be an underlying statement or lesson here that even in the midst of turbulent times or when the world is on a brink of a catastrophic end, a sense of happiness can be felt from being with someone who would stay by your side till the end. Or perhaps it even speaks to how the state of Happiness can also be fleeting experience and we should cherish it as much as we can.. However, as far as plain titles go, this is perhaps very misleading. The thriller drama had viewers on the edge of their seats eagerly waiting to see what would happen to their budding couple whose chemistry was beyond flammable. 

 

With a plot that centers around the release of a drug that could very well lead to the apocalypse, the term "Happiness", seems like a far-fetched idea to name this series. In a series where people are turning into crazed zombies, looking for the nearest human to bite, where the surviving humans in the apartment are either being classist, misogynistic, stealing, or outrightly murdering each other, and where the main character actually turns into one (although he was cured at the end), the term "Happiness" doesn't seem to go well with the plot of the series. However, despite it being abit misleading, it does its trick of being a memorable name that carries a great storyline.

Park Shin Hye And Park Hyung Sik In Talks To Reunite For New Medical Drama

Park Shin Hye and Park Hyung Sik may be starring in a new drama together!

 

On November 30, TenAsia reported that Park Shin Hye and Park Hyung Sik will be starring as the leads of the new drama “Doctor Slump” (literal title).

 

In response to the report, a source from Park Shin Hye’s agency SALT Entertainment shared, “Park Shin Hye has received the offer to star in ‘Doctor Slump,’ and she is positively reviewing the offer.” A representative of Park Hyung Sik’s agency P&Studio similarly shared, “He is positively reviewing the offer to star in ‘Doctor Slump.'”

 

“Doctor Slump” is about doctors who are in a slump as they try to resuscitate their lives. The rom-com captures the love and growth of two characters who live in a rooftop house after quitting their jobs as doctors. Park Shin Hye is in talks to play Nam Ha Neul while Park Hyung Sik has been offered the role of Yeo Jung Woo.

 

At the beginning of this year, Park Shin Hye got married to Choi Tae Joon, and the two celebrities became parents after they welcomed their first child to their family. If Park Shin Hye accepts the role, this will be her first medical drama since her 2016 performance in the hit drama “Doctors” and her first project since becoming a mom.

 

Since his debut as a member of ZE:A in 2010, Park Hyung Sik has also impressed in numerous projects including “What Happens to My Family?,” “Hwarang,” “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon,” “Happiness,” and more. Previously, Park Hyung Sik starred with Park Shin Hye in the popular 2013 drama “Heirs.”

 

“Doctor Slump” will reportedly begin filming next year after casting is completed, and the broadcasting details have yet to be confirmed.
