Park Hyung Sik is poised to continue his success story with the upcoming drama Treasure Island (literal title).

A source revealed to Sports Chosun on the 26th that Park Hyung Sik will lead the new SBS drama Treasure Island. The narrative revolves around a man who hacks into a 2 trillion won political slush fund to survive and a political fixer who, unknowingly, kills the man and thereby loses the 2 trillion won forever. However, the hacker survives but returns with no memory, setting the stage for an unpredictable plot.

In Treasure Island, Park Hyung Sik portrays Seo Dong Joo, the head of the external cooperation team at Daehan Group’s chairman’s secretariat, endowed with photomemory. While known as a devoted “Daehan man” who lives and breathes for the company’s interests, Seo harbors hidden ambitions to take over Daehan entirely, making him a character of ambition with a concealed family history.

Park Hyung Sik, who has shown remarkable growth after his military service, diversified his acting portfolio by transitioning from romantic comedies to a broader range of genres, from the apocalyptic series Happiness to the historical series Our Blooming Youth. Moreover, his recent successful collaboration with Park Shin Hye in Doctor Slump, which garnered international acclaim, led to their invitation as “Friends” to an event in Dubai at the end of March.

With Treasure Island as his next project, there’s growing anticipation for Park Hyung Sik’s ability to continue the success streak previously set by SBS dramas like Taxi Driver and The Fiery Priest. Treasure Island, a collaboration between Money Flower writer Lee Myung Hee and The Rebel and Military Prosecutor Doberman director Jin Chang Gyu, is currently in the casting phase and aims to begin filming in June.
