Park Shin Hye is considering a role in the film "Hyung," also known as "Older Brother." The screenplay was written by Yoo Young A, who wrote the screenplay for a film that Park previously appeared in, "Miracle in Cell No. 7."
Park's agency, S.A.L.T. Entertainment, told the Korean media outlet Naver TV that the casting was not definite.
"We are currently in discussion. We have not reached a final decision but we are discussing it favorably."
If she takes the role she will play a judo coach. Her character is close to judo athlete Doo Young, played by Do Kyung Soo, also known as EXO's D.O.
She cares for Doo Young as she might care for her own younger brother. Doo Young belongs to a national team but is injured before a competition. Having focused so hard on his athletic skills, Doo Young's injury forces him to rethink his life and his priorities.
The film also stars Jo Jung Suk, who appears in the drama "Oh My Ghostess." In "Hyung" he plays Doo Sik, Doo Young's older con artist brother. He shows up after serving 15 years in prison. Does he come home because he has nowhere else to go? Or is he there to make amends?
And will Park Shin Hye's character be caught in a love triangle with her two leading men? With this top-notch cast, things could get interesting.
Park Shin Hye recently had a leading role in the film 'The Royal Tailor" with co-star Yoo Yeon Suk. She also had a small role in the film "Beauty Inside." Her last k-drama role was in "Pinocchio" with co-star Lee Jong Suk.
Jo Jung Suk has also been cast in a leading role in the time travel film "Time Renegade" and also as a reporter in the film "Journalist."
Do Kyung So played Jo In Sung's delusional alter ego in "It's Okay, That's Love" and followed that role by playing a psychopath in "Hello Monster." He made his acting debut in the film "Cart" and recently appeared in the film "Pure Love" with Kim So Hyun.
"Hyung is scheduled to start shooting in October. Kwon Soo Kyung, who directed "Barefoot Kibong" will direct "Hyung."
