Korean actor Park Si-hoo has confirmed his role in a new romantic drama, opposite actress Moon Geun-young.
Park has decided to return to the small screen as the male lead in SBS' upcoming weekend drama "Alice of Cheongdam-dong" [translated title], his agency Eyagi Entertainment said in a press release Monday.
Park is to depict Cha Seung-jo, the youngest-ever C.E.O of a multinational distribution company of luxury goods. The rich man loses his love due to his wealth but is still eager to find the true love of his life.
"Alice of Cheongdam-dong," shot in one of the richest neighborhood in Seoul, will pivot around an ordinary woman named Han Se-kyung [played by Moon] who struggles to become a wealthy family’s daughter-in-law.
Penned by named writing duo Kim Ji-woon and Kim Jin-hee of "Queen Seon-duk" (MBC, 2009) and "Deep Rooted Tree" (SBS, 2012), the series will fill up the weekend primetime zone as the follow-up to Ju Ji-hoon's "Five Finger" in December.
His big screen debut thriller “Confession of Murder” co-starring actor Jung Jae-young is scheduled to hit local theaters in November.
