'Weak Hero' Park Ji-hoon X Choi Hyeon-wook X Hong Kyung, three rising actors unite

 

25AG5JQPZE2CIDUWZFODBH3ZNQ.jpg

 

Wave has confirmed the casting of actors Park Ji-hoon, Choi Hyun-wook, and Hong Kyung in the original drama 'Weak Hero'.

 

Wave's original 'Weak Hero' is a strong action-growth drama about a weak boy who fights violence inside and outside school with his innate brain and analytical powers, by Yeon Si-eun, a top 1% schoolboy who seems weak on the surface. It is based on the original Naver webtoon, which has established a strong global fandom and has established itself as the best academy action movie.

 

Director Yoo Su-min, who won the Best Picture award at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival, will take on the script and directing, and will depict the process of a weak boy becoming a hero in a differentiated way in eight episodes.

With expectations for the birth of a well-made work, three popular actors who have proven their skills through various works announced their appearances: Park Ji-hoon, Choi Hyun-wook, and Hong Kyung.

 

First, Park Ji-hoon takes on the role of the main character, Yeon Si-eun. Yeon Si-eun uses her innate brain and tools to develop strategic and creative fighting skills to subdue violence inside and outside of school, heralding the birth of a hero like never before. He was a voluntary outsider who had no interest in anything other than studying, but with this as an opportunity, he gets entangled with Suho and Beom-seok, and a change that is more important than studying occurs.

Boasting a 100% synchro rate with 'Yeon Si-eun', Park Ji-hoon has grown his acting skills by broadening his spectrum to various genres such as dramas 'Chosun Marriage Workshop Flower Crew', 'Love Revolution', and 'Blue Spring from afar'. This time, he even challenges differentiated action acting using brain.

 

Choi Hyun-wook takes on the role of ‘Ahn Su-ho,’ an honest and free spirit. He has no interest in school life other than the graduation without absences he promised with his one and only grandmother, but he meets Si-eun and Beom-seok and builds friendships together.

After winning the SBS Drama Awards Rookie of the Year award for ‘Exemplary Taxi’ and ‘Racket Boys’ last year, Choi Hyun-wook, who recently performed a great performance in ‘Twenty-five Twenty One’, predicts another acting transformation with ‘Weak Hero’.

 

In the role of 'Oh Beom-seok', who will build friendships with Park Ji-hoon and Choi Hyun-wook, after winning the Baeksang Arts Awards Rookie of the Year award for the movie 'Innocence', Hong Kyung, who showed terrible growth through dramas 'D.P.' and 'Hongcheongi', was selected. As a person who longs for Si-eun, who is becoming a ‘weak hero’, and honest and cool Suho, and has a desire to become strong for the first time, expectations are focused on Hong Kyung, who will perform complex emotional lines with suction.

 

Wave said, "The casting of the three 'weak hero', which has received high attention not only in Korea but also abroad, has been completed. Please show interest in the drama 'Weak Hero'." Meanwhile, 'Weak Hero', which is scheduled to be released exclusively by Wave in the second half of this year, will be produced by Studio Wave, the original planning and development subsidiary of Wave, Playlist, and Shortcake. The original company, Jaedam Media, participates in the co-production.

Choi Hyun Wook And Hong Kyung Confirmed Alongside Park Ji Hoon For New Action Drama

Choi Hyun Wook and Hong Kyung will be joining Park Ji Hoon in the new drama “Weak Hero” (literal title)!

Upcoming wavve drama “Weak Hero” is a school action drama based on a popular webtoon of the same name. The story follows Yeon Si Eun, a model student in the top 1 percent who appears weak on the outside, as he fights against the violence that unfolds at and outside of school using his brains and analytical skills. The eight-part series will be written and helmed by director Yoo Soo Min who won Best Film at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival.

Park Ji Hoon will be playing the leading role of Yeon Si Eun. Although he is naturally frail, he uses his brain and tools to develop a unique and strategic fighting style to win his battles and to eventually dominate the school, creating a new type of hero. Although Yeon Si Eun is an outsider by his own will since he isn’t interested in anything besides studying, he finds something more important than his studies after getting entangled with Ahn Su Ho and Oh Beom Seok. The actor previously impressed with his roles in “Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency,” “Love Revolution,” and “At a Distance Spring is Green.”

Choi Hyun Wook will be taking on the role of Ahn Su Ho who is an honest and free soul. Although he is not very interested in school besides graduating with perfect attendance like he promised his grandmother, he begins to gradually develop a friendship with Yeon Si Eun and Oh Beom Seok. Since winning Best New Actor at the 2021 SBS Drama Awards for his performances in “Racket Boys” and “Taxi Driver,” Choi Hyun Wook also captivated viewers with his recent role in “Twenty Five, Twenty One.”

Hong Kyung, who won Best New Actor at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards for the film “Innocence” and left a strong impression on viewers with the dramas “D.P.” and “Lovers of the Red Sky,” will be playing the role of Yeon Si Eun and Ahn Su Ho’s friend Oh Beom Seok. While idolizing Si Eun for becoming a “weak hero” and Su Ho for his honest and refreshing personality, Oh Beom Seok starts to harbor aspirations in his heart. Hong Kyung will skillfully and realistically portray Oh Beom Seok’s complicated emotions.

A representative of wavve shared, “‘Weak Hero,’ which is receiving great interest both domestically and abroad, has completed casting the [main] trio. Please show interest in the new type of hero and the differentiated action growth drama ‘Weak Hero,’ which will be showcased by rising actors Park Ji Hoon, Choi Hyun Wook, and Hong Kyung, who have been acknowledged by their tight acting skills.”

“Weak Hero” will be released in the second half of the year and produced by Studio wavve, Playlist Studio, Shortcake, and Jaedam Media.

Lee Yeon weak hero, Shin Seung-ho also joins... When is Wave exclusive release?

 

442345_447068_5629.jpg

 

The news of actors Shin Seung-ho and Lee Yeon's appearance in 'Weak Hero' is attracting attention.

 

Wave's original 'Weak Hero' is an action-growth drama that depicts the process of a weak boy becoming a hero in a differentiated way, written and directed by Yoo Su-min, who won the Best Film Award at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival. It is based on the popular webtoon of the same name serialized on Naver.

 

Director Han Jun-hee, who was recognized for his skills in the screenplay and directing of Netflix's 'D.P.', from the planning stage to the script and casting, is working with director Yoo Su-min to improve the perfection of the work. Recently, dramas directed by film directors through the OTT platform have been well received at home and abroad, leading the K-content craze. Expectations are high as it heralds the birth of another well-made film with the cooperation of talented directors.

 

Following the casting of Park Ji-hoon, Choi Hyeon-wook, and Hong Kyung, the casting of the hottest new actors who are receiving a lot of attention for their strong presence in the recent OTT series is also a hot topic.

 

In 'D.P.', he took on the role of 'Hwang Jang-soo', a sergeant who brutally bullies his successor, and showed realistic acting. The meeting of Lee Yeon, who was praised for her performance that transcends gender and age by transforming and was nominated for the award in the same category, was accomplished.

 

Shin Seung-ho plays an important role in the flow of the play by making a special appearance as Jeon Seok-dae, the leader of the runaway fam. Although he wields violence because of his situation, he is a character who has a repulsion against the organization's relentless violence. Shin Seung-ho is expected to delicately show the complex inner side of Jeonseokdae with his sincere eyes and wide acting that goes back and forth between hot and cold baths.

 

Lee Yeon takes on the role of ‘Young-i’, a member of the runaway family with ‘Jeon Seok-dae’, and is preparing to show off her unstoppable charm. ‘Young-i’ is the person who experiences the biggest change when he meets ‘Si-eun’, the main character that Park Ji-hoon will play. A different side of Lee Yeon that had never been seen before was foretold.

'Rookie' Cha Woo-min joins 'Weak Hero'... Acting with Park Ji-hoon and Hong Kyung

 

JQ4NYXJ2MI3KJG7PRB7JAZMV2U.jpg

 

Rookie actor Cha Woo-min joins 'Weak Hero' and shows off a strong image transformation.

 

A representative from the entertainment industry told Sports Chosun on the 8th, "Cha Woo-min will join Wave's original drama 'Weak Hero'." Based on the Naver webtoon of the same name, 'Weak Hero' is a strong action-growing drama about a weak boy who fights violence inside and outside school with his innate brain and analytical powers, by Yeon Si-eun, a top 1% schoolboy who seems weak on the surface.

 

Director Yoo Su-min, who won the Best Picture award at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival, will take on the script and directing, and will depict the process of a weak boy becoming a hero in a differentiated way in eight episodes. With actors such as Park Ji-hoon, Choi Hyun-wook, and Hong Kyung appearing in 'Weak Hero', Cha Woo-min will play UFC fighter Woo-young in 'Weak Hero' and show a strong transformation, so expectations are high.

 

Cha Woo-min is a rookie who debuted through the web drama 'Florida Spot'. If you first greeted viewers with the fresh charm of a BL drama through 'Florida Spot', this time as a UFC fighter, you are expected to show off a somewhat rough charm and a stout body.

'Weak Hero' is scheduled to be released exclusively through Wave in the second half of this year.

Watch: Park Ji Hoon Isn’t Going To Be Bullied Without A Fight In Chilling Trailer For “Weak Hero”

Sep 25, 2022
by E. Cha
 
dummy.jpeg?s=900x600&e=t
 

wavve has unveiled a suspenseful sneak peek of its upcoming drama “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.

The newly released trailer begins with Yeon Si Eun facing off against two of his bullies in the bathroom, menacingly clicking a pen as he says in voice-over, “Pavlov’s dog experiment. The bell rings. Food is given. The dog salivates. [Later,] only the bell is rung.”

As the caption reveals that his grades are in the top 1 percent, the clip goes on to show Yeon Si Eun being awarded a gold prize at school. However, his academic success attracts unwanted attention from school bullies, who torment him between classes and tell him, “Did you know that people can’t stand the sight of you?”

But as Yeon Si Eun coldly returns his bully’s gaze, it becomes evident that he isn’t going to go down without a fight. After making friends with Ahn Su Ho (played by Choi Hyun Wook of “Twenty Five, Twenty One”), Yeon Si Eun develops a new goal: “something that’s more important than studying.”

At the end of the video, Yeon Si Eun warns someone threateningly, “I asked you to stop.” 

“Weak Hero” will premiere at the Busan International Film Festival in October before being released through wavve later this year.

Park Ji-hoon fights back against bullies in Weak Hero Class 1

by solstices

http://www.dramabeans.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/whero_0.jpg

 

Wow, I never thought I’d find myself using the word “menacing” to describe Park Ji-hoon (At a Distance, Spring is Green), but he’s certainly broken away from his previous image to take on this role — I barely recognized him at first glance!

Wavve original Weak Hero Class 1 is shaping up to be an unflinching, action-packed take on school violence, if its first teaser is anything to go by. Based on the webtoon Weak Hero, the drama follows model student Yeon Shi-eun (Park Ji-hoon) as he fights back against his bullies.

 

 

The teaser opens with Shi-eun slowly advancing upon two school bullies, ominously clicking his pen all the while. A narration accompanies his steps:

Pavlov’s experiment. A bell is rung. Food is given. The dog salivates. Only a bell is rung.

Shi-eun is a top student with excellent grades, which makes him easy pickings for the class bullies. They try to get under his skin by tossing a book at him, instigating a physical fight, and sneering derisively in his face, but Shi-eun isn’t as easy of a target as he seems. When he looks up to meet the bully’s eyes, there’s steel in his gaze.

Free-spirited Ahn Su-ho, played by Choi Hyun-wook (Twenty-Five Twenty-One), takes down a group of bullies with a series of sharp kicks. He’s Shi-eun’s buddy, and the friend trio is completed by bespectacled nerd Oh Beom-seok, played by Hong Kyung (Lovers of the Red Sky).

In class, the bullying continues, and Shi-eun’s eye twitches in irritation. Having finally had enough, he snatches a book off a classmate’s desk and swings it right at the bully’s face. Whoa.

Written and directed by Yoo Soo-min, Weak Hero Class 1 is slated to premiere at the Busan International Film Festival in October. The 8-episode drama will be released on Wavve in November.

Park Ji Hoon will soon be returning to the small screen with wavve’s upcoming drama “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.

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.”

'Weak Hero' Park Ji-hoon "I was attracted to Yeon Si-eun without emotions"... Synchro rate 200%

 

news-p.v1.20221024.f44ab29a3ebb4149a7286

 

While the transformation of Park Ji-hoon's acting in Wave's original 'Weak Hero Class 1' has become a hot topic on social media and various communities, a still cut that clearly shows the change has been released. The charm of Park Ji-hoon, an actor who can talk with his eyes, stands out.

 

Wave's original drama 'Weak Hero Class 1' (hereinafter referred to as 'Weak Hero', directed and written by Yoo Su-min, production playlist, shortcake) is a drama in which Yeon Si-eun, a top 1% schoolboy, fights against numerous violence with Suho and Beom-seok, who became friends for the first time. It is a strong action-growth drama about a weak boy who depicts the process. Based on exhilarating and differentiated action, it will deal with the deep friendship and growth of young people who fight against violence to protect their precious things.

 

Park Ji-hoon took on the role of the main character, Yeon Si-eun, and predicted a different face that had not been seen before. He said, "I put a lot of effort into practicing my eyes so that I can feel Si-eun's feelings even in the face of expressionlessness." It is also his first action acting challenge in his life. The new challenge had a big impact on the decision to appear in this work. The reason was that “I was particularly drawn to the unique and new action of ‘Yeon Si-eun’, who uses her innate brain to fight, and the expressionless and emotionless character she has never shown before.”

 

Looking at the still cuts released today (24th), Park Ji-hoon's choice and the resulting efforts seem very successful. In a refined expression, all emotions such as emptiness, disappointment, anger, loneliness, and surprise are expressed with one glance. In particular, he perfectly reproduced the character of 'Yeon Si-eun', who is indifferent to school life other than studying and has no friends as if he was surrounded by the world, with chic eyes and facial expressions. Park Ji-hoon, who cleverly analyzes and expresses his role, becomes friends with ‘Su-ho’ (Choi Hyun-wook) and ‘Beom-seok’ (Hong-kyung), and expectations are rising how he will portray the change of ‘Yeon Si-eun’, who grows up against violence.

 

Wave said, “Park Ji-hoon is a perfectly customized casting for the character ‘Yeon Si-eun’. Not only does it have an image of high synchro rate, but even the low-mid voice matches Si-eun's serious personality. In addition, the solid acting skills that he has been training since his childhood days were perfect for spearheading and leading the work. Actor Park Ji-hoon's first attempt at action acting also boasts a high degree of perfection as a result of continuous and diligent practice. Please look forward to it.”

 

Wave's original drama 'Weak Hero Class 1', which is expected to transform Park Ji-hoon's acting, will be exclusively released at Wave on November 18 (Friday).

“Twenty Five, Twenty One” Star Choi Hyun Wook Is A Loyal Ally To A Bullied Park Ji Hoon In “Weak Hero”

wavve’s upcoming drama “Weak Hero” has shared a sneak peek of Choi Hyun Wook in character!

 

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.

 

Choi Hyun Wook, who shot to fame in the hit drama “Twenty Five, Twenty One” earlier this year, will be playing the role of Ahn Su Ho, one of Yeon Si Eun’s classmate. The free-spirited Ahn Su Ho doesn’t care much about school life, and he only attends to keep his promise to his beloved grandmother that he’d graduate with perfect attendance—but when he sees the seemingly weak Yeon Si Eun strategically fighting back against his bullies, he begins to take an interest in the fellow student and eventually approaches him.

 

When describing his character, Choi Hyun Wook summed up Ahn Su Ho as a “loyal fighter” who isn’t afraid to take a stand against unwarranted violence. As for why he was drawn to the role, the actor shared, “It’s a drama that deals with a realistic conflict that seems like it could happen in real life, and I also wanted to take on the challenge of action scenes for the first time.”

In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Choi Hyun Wook transforms into an action star to play the tough and nimble Ahn Su Ho—but he also shows off an unexpectedly cute side as he rests his head on a pink pillow in the classroom.

 

“Su Ho, whose only goal is to graduate without any problems, works part-time every single day,” explained the actor, “so he pretty much just sleeps the entire time he’s at school. In order to sleep more comfortably, he carries around a pillow. But I thought that Su Ho might be the kind of person who unexpectedly likes cute things, so I chose a pink bunny pillow.”

However, as free-spirited and cute as Ahn Su Ho can be, the loyal warrior is as intimidating as can be once it’s time for a fight.

wavve commented, “Choi Hyun Wook’s fellow actors describe him as an actor whose face looks different whenever he takes on a new role, and in keeping with that description, Choi Hyun Wook surprises viewers with a different kind of acting performance in every project. In ‘Weak Hero,’ he was the essence of the honest and bold Su Ho himself. Through his realistic and quick-witted portrayal, he made the character of Su Ho even more charming. In particular, he especially stood out in his action scenes. Maybe it’s because he used to be a baseball player, but there was a relaxed, nimble quality to his movements. You can safely look forward to his performance.”
