I know one present I’d be thrilled to get for Christmas – Park Hyung Sik in a wrapped box please! The charming and charismatic idol-actor is on the cover and pages of Sure Magazine in an early start to welcome the upcoming holiday season. I still marvel over how he was utterly forgettable in Heirs, probably due to Kim Woo Bin sucking in all the attention in that drama, but when Park Hyung Sik got his turn to shine in weekend drama What’s With My Family he stepped up to the plate big time.
That’s still my favorite drama of hisds, but his performance in High Society this year was also most excellent. Too bad the drama never really reached for the stars and ended up mired in the mundane. Up next for Park Hyung Sik is likely his first sageuk performance as he’s confirmed to join Shilla era sageuk drama Hwarang, which is also courting Park Seo Joon and Go Ara. If he accepts then filming starts this January for an mid-2016 premiere.
