Park Eun Bin is in talks to star in yet another TV series.
According to Sports Chosun, Park was cast to play the title role in Strange Lawyer Woo Young Woo (literal title). It follows a 27-year-old woman with Asperger syndrome, Woo Young Woo, as she starts working as a lawyer in a large firm.
If she joins the project, Park will play Woo Young Woo, a new lawyer at a firm, Baekryong. Woo has autism spectrum disorder (ASD), previously called Asperger’s syndrome. With a high IQ of 164, outstanding memory, and creative thinking, Woo graduated from Korea’s best university at the top of her class. She is the smartest lawyer in Korea. However, the low EQ and lack of social skills are her weakness.
In response, Park’s agency Namoo Actors shared, “The actress is contemplating the offer.”
Now, Park is one of the hottest actresses in the industry. Just last year, she made back-to-back hits with Hot Stove League and Do you like Brahms? Not long ago, she finished filming the new film The Witch 2 and is currently working on KBS’s new series Affection.
Meanwhile, Strange Lawyer Woo Young Woo will most likely be programmed as the new SBS series. The Dr. Romantic series director Yoo In Sik and screenwriter Moon Ji Won will join hands for the project.
