Park Bo Young in Playful Kiss

Oh, this would make my day. Park Bo Young is the top contender for the Korean drama adaptation of Itazura na Kiss, which was adapted into the Taiwanese hit series It Started With a Kiss.

The 20-year-old actress is not only talented, but has a lovely presence that really comes through the screen, and she was wonderful playing a young single mom in the movie that made her a star, Speed Scandal. Back when the drama was first announced, I’d thought it would be great to get Park Bo Young onboard but hadn’t had much hope, because she has been tangled up in legal disputes with her management, which is why she hasn’t acted since 2008′s Speed Scandal.

(In brief: A production company sued Park Bo Young and her management, Humane Entertainment, of fraud and embezzlement. They accused Park Bo Young of agreeing to appear in their movie production, Sound of Ice, while harboring no intention to actually participate. They also accused the management company of taking money under the pretext of using them as production funds for its own operations. The prosecutor found Park Bo Young clear of charges and now she’s looking to get back to work.)

My interest took a sharp swing upward when director Hwang In-roi signed on (he of Goong and Return of Iljimae), and I’d LOVE to see Park Bo Young cast in this. Writing is Go Eun-nim of MBC’s Hon.

A source with the production explained that aside from Park Bo Young, they had auditioned a hundred hopefuls for the lead role. After they finish casting in late June, filming will begin in July. The drama is aiming for a fall premiere and is eyeing the Wednesday-Thursday slot after MBC’s Road No. 1 airs.

Park Bo Young has been out of Group Eight’s list? Weeks ago, I posted that Park Bo Young has been shortlisted for the female lead role for the Korean adaptation of ‘Itazura na Kiss’. The proposed drama has been much talked about as well after rumors of the possible lead roles. However, according to reports who had closed sources – Park Bo Young is said to have been dropped off the list due to her recent legal issues with her agency.

The drama is still in casting, with the final product set to broadcast on September.
