Singer-Actor Park Ji Hoon in Talks for New Drama Based on BASTARD Webtoon
Former child actor and Wanna One member Park Ji Hoon is steadily rising to the top names of young South Korean celebrities. Following his outstanding performance in Weak Hero Class 1, Park Ji Hoon will soon upgrade his acting skills by taking a much more challenging role in a new Korean drama adapted from the Bastard webtoon.
On January 16, multiple entertainment insiders and webtoon officials reported that singer-actor Park Ji Hoon would take on the leading character role of the new Korean drama, Bastard. The Korean drama is an adaptation of the famous Bastard webtoon that gained massive attention for its unique plot and storyline.
What is the Korean Drama About?
Adapted from the Bastard webtoon by Kim Carnby, the Park Ji Hoon new drama will depict the story of a psychopath’s son who finally decides to fight against his father. If he accepts the offer, Park Ji Hoon will take on the role of Seon Woo Jin, the main character of the new Bastard Korean drama.
If the story follows the original plot of Bastard webtoon, the new Korean drama will start with the unusual daily life of the psychopath’s son, Seon Woo Jin.
Seon Woo Jin is the son of a psychopathic father who’s been killing people all his life. Since he was a kid, Seon Woo Jin realized what his father had been doing. But despite knowing his father’s actions were immoral, Seon Woo Jin has no choice but to keep silent and cooperate, even assisting his father as a murder accomplice. After all, if he refused to cooperate, there was a chance that his father might kill him someday.
One day, a female student, Yoon Kyun, transferred to his school. Yoon Kyun witnessed Seon Woo Jin getting bullied at their school and decided to help him. But then, Seon Woo Jin’s father sees Yoon Kyun and gets enticed by the female student, so he wants her as his next victim.
For the first time in his life, Seon Woo Jin decided to go against his father and protect the new transfer student, Yoon Kyun.
Park Ji Hoon: MORE Acting Upgrade in New Webtoon Adaptation Korean Drama, BASTARD
So, did Park Ji Hoon decide to accept the role? Hi agency, Maru Planning, released an official statement on the same day that Bastard webtoon adaptation Korean drama is one of the projects that the singer-actor is currently reviewing.
Still, if he accepts the offer, Seon Woo Jin will become another character that helps Park Ji Hoon upgrade his acting skills to a whole new level.
Previously, the former child actor stunned the viewers with his complete transformation in Weak Hero Class 1. But Bastard webtoon character Seon Woo Jin is an entirely different challenge.
Park Ji Hoon will have to portray the intense emotions of a teenager growing up in a horrible childhood. After all, as a son of a serial murderer, Seon Woo Jin has also been a victim of abuse, gaslighting, and even coercion to commit crimes. As a result, the inner battle within Seon Woo Jin was extraordinarily intense, especially during the process of reaching emotional growth.
Do You Think He Can Pull It Off?
Finally, do you think the former Wanna One member will take on the challenge? And even if he does, can he portray Seon Woo Jin perfectly with all his inner conflicts and extreme emotions? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
