I hope the Park Hyung Sik lovefest continues with the current drama viewers affection for his acting forays. I also hope he continues with the smart role selections that have helped pave his acting jaunts, from supporting role in Heirs to younger generation main lead in weekend family drama What’s With This Family and onwards to second male lead of prime time drama High Society. I don’t think he’s ready for prime time drama male lead but he’s definitely getting there.
He’s been shining in every role I’ve seen from him, a combination of genuine acting charisma and picking good roles. The latter is as hard as the former, as evidenced by High Society male lead Sung Joon getting saddled with a dour and dull character while Park Hyung Sik’s role may have gotten less screen time but ended up way more likable and enjoyable. He’s been all over the K-ent publications doing the obligatory post-drama interviews, with plenty of handsome pictures snapped but looking exhausted and wan in nearly every one. Poor boy, please go take a nap for a week now.
