I am sharing here, instead of in our Pinocchio forum.....
[NEWS] “Pinocchio”, will it succeed?
Another drama based on the media has yet to come.
Media-based dramas aren’t a preferable kind since their track record hasn’t been a successful one.
MBC “Spotlight” in 2008 was a professional drama based on broadcast station reporters and the question, “What is the true journalism this generation wants?” This drama starred Son Ye-jin, Ji Jin-hee, Jin Goo and other top stars although it didn’t succeed. Even the movie “Moby Dick” starring Hwang Jeong-min and Kim Min-hee didn’t go very far.
Naturally, no other dramas and movies dealt with media anymore, but two dramas and a movie based on that subject, are being released at the end of the year.
“Healer” is the story of media reporters, Ji Chang-wook, Park Min-yeong and Yoo Ji-tae, who dig the truth of a past and the present. It’s written by Song Ji-na and takes a closer look into the lives of news reporters.
SBS drama “Pinocchio” is collaboration between writer Park Hye-ryeon and producer Jo Soo-won. It’s the success story of social junior reporters in their 20s, starring Park Sin-hye and Lee Jong-seok. It seems to be much more youthful than “Healer” but it’s something writer Park Hye-ryeon has been working on for more than a year.
There has been movement in the movie industry too. “Journalist” is currently in casting and aiming for release early next year.
Professor Lee Ho-gyu, a cultural analyst says, “Media have always evaluated our work as lacking, but this time it’s going to be different with an excellent cast and excellent writers”.
