Park Bo-young cast in upcoming tvN drama

Aug 17,2018
Actor Park Bo-young will return to television in the new tvN drama “Abyss” (working title), according to the network on Thursday.

The drama, which is set to air in the first half of 2019, tells the story of a beautiful prosecutor and a man coined as part of the ugliest 0.1 percent in society. The two stumble upon a magical marble that transforms both of them - the prosecutor into a common-looking woman and the man into a handsome gentleman.

“Recently, while I was reading and contemplating various projects and scripts, I was so intrigued by [this drama’s] character and the unexpected situations and settings, I decided to join,” said Park.

“Abyss” is Park’s first drama since appearing in the 2017 JTBC series “Strong Woman Bong-soon,” which set ratings records for JTBC dramas at the time.

Park made her debut in 2006, and appeared in the hit film “Speed Scandal” (2008). Since then, she has appeared in a number of dramas and films, including tvN’s “Oh My Ghost” (2015), “A Werewolf Boy” (2012) and “The Silenced” (2014).
