On September 2, an inside source revealed that Park Shin Hye is currently in talks to join “Hyung” (working English title). “Hyung” has already secured Jo Jung Suk and EXO’s D.O as brothers who end up living together after 15 years of living separately. Director Kwon Soo Kyung of “Barefoot Kibong” will be helming the project.
Jo Jung Suk will be acting as the older brother named Doo Shik who serves a prison sentence due to committing fraud. Meanwhile, EXO’s D.O will portray a star judo athlete named Doo Young. He is on the national team, but suffers an injury right before an important competition. The unfortunate accident ends up changing his life irreversibly.
If Park Shin Hye confirms the film, she will act as a character who treats D.O like her real younger brother yet bickers with Jo Jung Suk. The actress’ last film was “The Royal Tailor” which was released about a year ago. However, she more recently had a cameo in the movie “Beauty Inside.”
Her agency, SALT Entertainment, commented, “We are currently discussing [the role]. We have not reached a final decision, but we are discussing it favorably.”
“Hyung” is scheduled to start filming in October.
