Park Hae Jin And Jo Bo Ah Are Looking For A Hidden Secret In Upcoming Drama “Forest”

Jan 24, 2020
by S. Nam

KBS 2TV’s “Forest” has released beautiful new posters of Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah!

The 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.

The aesthetic green-tinted posters of Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah hint at their hidden story and the healing romance that’s to come in the drama.

Park Hae Jin has taken on the role of Kang San Hyuk, the elite specialist at an investment firm with an extraordinary brain and animal-like instincts. In his poster, Kang San Hyuk is in a sharp suit while wandering around the forest. As he carefully pushes away the branch covering his path, he cautiously looks around his surroundings. His text reads, “I have to know. The person who designed all this,” sparking the viewers’ curiosity as to what his hidden story regarding Miryeong Forest could be.


Jo Bo Ah plays the talented surgeon Jung Young Jae who has a feisty personality and isn’t afraid of anyone. In her poster, Jung Young Jae looks pure and elegant in her orange dress that stands out amidst the green background. Looking like a flower in the middle of a forest, she has a soft expression as she reaches out with her hand to block the sunlight. Above her, the text reads, “The miracle the forest has given me… is you.”



The production team shared, “We tired to capture the story Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah will unfold in their character posters. Please show lots of interest for the healing story of ‘Forest,’ which will contain the grandeur of nature as well as romance and be the first domestic [drama] to take place in the forest.”

“Forest” premieres on January 29 at 10 p.m. KST as the follow-up to “Woman of 9.9 Billion” and will be available on Viki. Watch a teaser for the drama here!

Finally! Finally! Park Hae Jin returns to the screen... in a melo romance apparently. :wub: About time too.


This show gives me Chocolate vibes. Could be good... could be a step too late. Anyway, if it's half the drama Chocolate is, that'll be enough for me. It doesn't have to be a great drama because I'd be happy even if PHJ spent most of his time flipping through the phone book pensively angsting over past trauma.


Chemistry between the leads seems pretty good.


And yes, @nonski I have been lurking about regularly trying to get updates on this. Thanks for keeping this thread alive.



Wonder how much they spent on this. Looks amazing.

‘포레스트’ 박해진 119 특수구조대 변신, 레펠 하강에 스태프 박수갈채

`` Forest '' Park Hae-jin transformed into 119 Special Rescue Team(Autotrans)







Forest' Park Hae-in is transformed into a 119 Special Rescue Team.


KBS 2TV's new drama 'Forest' (played Lee Sun-young / directed Oh Jong-rok / produced IHQ, Star Force, Gaji Contents), which will be broadcasted on January 29, will be met in the mysterious forest. This is a forced cohabitation romance that explores the secrets of one's self and the forest.


Above all, Park has emerged as an M&A (mergers and acquisition) star with his extraordinary mind and animal senses, signaling an infinite transformation. Kang, who doesn’t trust any information or data from others and can only be found in the field, is expected to add a subtle mystery to the drama as he becomes mired in a place called the "Unknown Forest," which has come to him one day like fateful one day.'.


In a related development, Park Hae-jin has been seen battling to become an "air rescue worker" of 119 special rescue teams. In the play, Kang San-hyuk is being trained to lower from the Rappel, one of the aerial rescue exercises. Kang is seriously training with a tense look on his body in a model helicopter floating on the third floor, leaving himself to the rope and jumping boldly. Attention is mounting to what story Kang San-hyuk, who was famous as a specialist, turned into an aviation rescue worker for 119 special rescue teams overnight.


The scene of Park’s "air rescue team training" in a uniform was staged at the 119 Special Rescue Team located in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province. Park, who was known as "Pacific Suit" until the previous shooting, drew applause from the set with his special transformation, in which he appeared in 119 rescue uniforms from head to foot. In particular, Park, who had been trained and trained voluntarily even before the filming of "Forrest," warmed the scene with his initiative by talking with the actors he filmed with and giving them a helmet safety checkups.


As the shooting began, Park completed the scene of the fall of the Rappel and received applause from the staff who were watching it. Moreover, he elevated the character's charm by playing a skillful expression and situation in line with the script.


The production team said, "Park showed passion based on his thorough preparation to the extent that he could feel signs of trouble throughout the script. "The change also gave birth to a colorful scene by taking it like a sponge without fear," he said. "Please watch the performance of Park Hae-jin  as Kang San-hyuk, whose invisible charm of the character is at its peak." First broadcast at 10 p.m. on the 29th. (papago)

Hello there members of the Forest Club!

Now what do we call ourselves?  Foresters or Rescuers?


Happy to see Jins coming over now to camp here and of course our usual kdrama buddies here at Soompi.  Seems soompiers from MxM thread are slowly rising and camping in here.

@triplem  it's a 16 episode drama as @0ly40 mentioned.

@40somethingahjumma woohooo glad to see you here and I was smiling broadly that you're happy enough to see Park Hae Jin in this show.  me too, me too! It's been too long.

@stroppyse chingu-ya I hope you will be on this thread, our resident mod-translator.  I hope you'll like it enough to translate clips and previews just like before.

waves @ktcjdrama and @Lawyerh

Waiting for my friend @roziecaparas to join us here.

Soon enough I will be roll-calling for this show. (pls pm me if you don't want to be mentioned)


For those not familiar, Park Hae Jin, even prior to this drama had some sort of experience or familiarity in this training when he volunteered to model for free on the National Fire Agency 2020 calendar.  He is a sort of figure representative of said agency.  Their office is mainly covered by his photos in firefighting uniform.  In 2018 he was conferred the honorary firefighter position and late in 2019 he was promoted as the honorary fire marshall.  He is like a brand ambassador of the Korea National Fire Agency.


See below the screenshot of the website of the Korea National Fire Agency.

@nonski Yes hes pretty commendable in real life, with his contribution especially to fire department. And I just can't resist a man who look good in his uniform :joy: Wave to you too @irilight :heart:

and he can be cute too... he forgot to take the customary photo op when you get your awards/certificates and the MC had to call him back.  This was when he was conferred as honorary firefighter.

Park Hae Jin Surprises Jo Bo Ah By Bringing Them Unexpectedly Closer In “Forest”

Jan 27, 2020
by J. Lim

Upcoming KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama ” Forest” has released new stills of Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah.

“Forest” will tell the story of a man who has everything but a heart and a woman who has lost everything but her met as they meet in a mystical forest and attempt to uncover the secrets within it.

Park Hae Jin plays Kang San Hyuk, a man who is willing to do anything to achieve his goal of amassing a personal fortune of one trillion won (approximately $850 million) and is interested in nothing else. Jo Bo Ah plays Jung Young Jae, a skilled surgeon who wants to teach people who show off a lesson.

The new stills show Kang San Hyuk and Jung Young Jae in an unexpectedly close moment in the hospital. Jung Young Jae is watching over Kang San Hyuk as he lays in the hospital with a pitiful expression on her face. Things take a turn when he opens his eyes and suddenly pulls Jung Young Jae in for an embrace, surprising her and bringing their faces close together. It is still a mystery why perfectionist Kang San Hyuk seems to change around Jung Young Jae when he’s in the hospital as a patient.


The production staff shared, “From the preparation stage to filming, Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah showed amazing concentration and passion for the production. We plan to bring warmth to viewers with a healing romance, so please keep an eye on ‘Forest.'”

“Forest” will premiere on January 29 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
