Park Hae Jin Is A Charismatic Businessman With A Hidden Pain In Upcoming Drama “Forest”

Park Hae Jin Is A Charismatic Businessman With A Hidden Pain In Upcoming Drama “Forest”

Jan 21, 2020
by R. Jun
 

KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Forest” has revealed new stills of a charismatic Park Hae Jin.

The drama is about a man who has everything but a heart, and a woman who has lost everything but her heart. It follows their love story after they meet in a mysterious forest and try to uncover the secret behind the forest and themselves.

Park Hae Jin plays Kang San Hyuk, an elite specialist at an investment firm who will do whatever it takes to achieve his life goal of obtaining 1 trillion won (approximately $863 million) in personal assets.

Though Kang San Hyuk is a star in his field of business, he is not perfect. In crucial moments, he experiences a phantom pain of his arm burning. Because he hates to be seen by others as having a weak mind, he has ignored the pain he feels thus far, but one day, he meets surgeon Jung Young Jae (played by Jo Bo Ah) in a mysterious forest and comes to a turning point in his life.

In the new stills, Kang San Hyuk makes a grand entrance at a directors’ meeting and puts his business expertise on full display.

“Forest” premieres January 29.

Romance develops for Park Hae-jin, Jo Boa in new teaser for Forest

for12.jpg

A new video teaser has been released for KBS’s upcoming romance Forest, featuring its lead actors Park Hae-jin (Man to Man) and Jo Boa (My Strange Hero).

The story is described as a healing romance with Park Hae-jin playing Kang San-hyuk. He’s a man who seems to have it all, but he hides a painful past and suffered memory loss as a child. Due to circumstances that are not yet known, he finds himself forced to cohabitate with Jo Boa, who plays a surgeon named Jung Young-jae. She carries emotional baggage from her past as well and the two characters form a bond over their respective miseries. As they comfort and encourage one another, their relationship grows and they create in each other a safe space to breathe.

The newly released teaser highlights the drama’s title and setting – a mysterious forest which holds the key to unlocking the secrets in the characters’ pasts.

It starts with close-ups of Jo Boa and Park Hae-jin captioned by the words, “Fate has come, again.” In voice-over, Jo explains: “There’s a patient at the hospital that I keep thinking about. I think it’s sympathy as a fellow sufferer.” As she speaks, there is a sequence of shots showing Jo riding a bicycle, Park Hae-jin looking up at the sky, Park doubled over in pain and crying out, someone in a car underwater, and Jo distraught at the hospital. We see someone holding her and she cries, “Stop it, please just stop.”

Cut to Jo Boa leaning over Park Hae-jin when he suddenly embraces her and says, “There’s no one who dies because of you. You make people live.” As he speaks, we see Jo basking in the sunlight under the forest canopy and a wider shot reveals Park watching her. Jo confesses, “I started to become curious about Kang San-hyuk and everything about him.” As she speaks, we see another sequence of shots: Jo checking Park’s heartbeat, the two of them napping on chairs in the forest, the two riding bicycles together, and a charged moment when they lock hands while cleaning up a spilled drink. Curiously, the teaser ends with a shot of Jo Boa underwater.

Writing for the drama is Lee Sun-young and directing will be helmed by PD Oh Jong-rok (Twelve Men in a Year, Piano).

KBS’s upcoming Forest is currently set to premiere in just a few weeks, on January 29, and will be airing Wednesdays and Thursdays.

I guess he was a businessman prior becoming a rescue worker (since this is entirely a pre-produced drama)

Jo Bo Ah And Park Hae Jin Reveal Surprising Sides To Their Perfectionist Characters In “Forest”

Jan 21, 2020

More stills have been released for “Forest”!

This upcoming KBS 2TV drama is about a man who has everything but a heart, and a woman who has lost everything but her heart. It follows their love story after they meet in a mysterious forest as they try to uncover the secret behind the forest and themselves.

Jo Bo Ah portrays her first-ever doctor role as talented surgeon Jung Young Jae. Although seemingly perfect on the surface with the job title of a doctor and her passionate personality, Jung Young Jae’s past trauma causes a critical incident that drives her to the mysterious forest.

In the stills, Jung Young Jae sobs on the floor while giving emergency treatment to a patient at the ICU. In contrast to her usual cold demeanor, she reveals a burst of emotions when faced with an unexpected situation and makes viewers curious about what happened to this talented surgeon.

This scene was filmed at a hospital in Seoul. Because it’s a scene that reveals Jung Young Jae’s story which she kept hidden up until this moment, Jo Bo Ah held a long discussion with the director about the details and character’s situation before filming. The actress got into character, burst into tears that weren’t originally included in the script, and brought tears to the eyes of the staff on set.

After being cast on “Forest,” Jo Bo Ah has shown her dedication by visiting experts to ask questions and reading books. Before filming a surgical scene, she figured out every nook and cranny of the set beforehand and rehearsed.

Park Hae Jin invitation to watch "Forest."
 



Jo Bo-Ah invitation to watch "Forest."
 

@triplem, I also thought he was a fire-fighter.  And that is why he got the "Honorary Fire Martial" from the Korean fire Agency...

Viki has added a fan-channel for this Drama. I am pretty sure they will license it.

Thanks @beyaruth . I am curious how he would switch careers , or what would lead him to give up the chaebol life and help others instead. 

Hello dears @irilight  @hibiscus23 I have been waiting for this for so long. Has it already been two years since we've seen PHJ on screen. How I have missed him . I am hoping he's still a rescue worker . It would be something different than just being the usual chaebol. Storyline seems a little bit cheesy  or rather character set ups are quite cliche...:lol:, but I better not complain as I am just grateful this is getting aired.  Nice that romance is the focus. 

Hi @thanie good to see you here :heart:

KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Forest” has released new stills of Park Hae Jin and Noh Kwang Sik!

The drama is about a man who has everything but a heart and a woman who has lost everything but her heart. It follows their love story after they meet in a mysterious forest and try to uncover the secret behind the forest and themselves.

Park Hae Jin plays Kang San Hyuk, an elite specialist at an investment firm who will do whatever it takes to achieve his life goal of obtaining 1 trillion won (approximately $863 million) in personal assets. Noh Kwang Sik play Choi Chang who grew up without any financial concerns thanks to his father but went against his father’s wishes in order to follow his dream of being an emergency rescue team member. The two will showcase interesting chemistry in which they always compete to see who’s better off whenever they meet.

In the newly released stills, Kang San Hyuk and Choi Chang are glaring daggers at each other in their first encounter at Miryung forest. In order to capture a wider view of Miryung forest with his camera, Kang San Hyuk steps on a dead tree, but Choi Chang suddenly appears and blocks his view. The two use all their might in order to claim a more elevated position than the other, facing off in a fierce battle of pride.

@katakwasabi the healing river where are you.... look Haejin is inside the forest now! lols!:joy::joy::joy:

@triplemchingu Kang Sanhyuk is a businessman who is an expert in M&A or mergers and acquisition.  I wonder too what happened why joined the 119 rescue team.   From the preview it seems like he had lost someone, or something bad happened in the forest... maybe due to a fire.  Wondering if the members of our Black Ring Circle/Group (Man to Man) are on stand-by for this drama? I saw @40somethingahjumma lurking.
