Park Eun-bin, best known for The King’s Affection and Extraordinary Attorney Woo, has been cast in a new romantic comedy series. Dive of the Deserted Island is the series’ literal title translation. The news drew a lot of interest because of the 30-year-old actress and the show’s director-writer combination. Previous works by director Oh Choong-hwan and writer Park Hye-ran include While You Were Sleeping (2017) and Start-Up (2020), two of the most successful K-dramas. These two series are often suggested for newcomers to the world of Korean dramas because they are well-written, interesting, and give an excellent introduction to the genre. The director-writer team’s collaboration with one of today’s most recognized actresses has elicited a favorable reaction.

The production of Park Eun-upcoming bin’s Kakao romcom will commence in the first half of 2023.
Park Eun-bin will appear in a new romantic comedy series. The Critics’ Choice Award winner began her career as a young actor and has starred in films such as Hello, My Twenties!, Do You Like Brahms?, and Hot Stove League. Her most popular dramas are the Netflix original Extraordinary Attorney Woo and the Emmy-winning historical piece The King’s Affection.
Following two straight successes, the Extraordinary Attorney Woo actress will now appear in a forthcoming Kakao romcom. The show’s premise, Diva of the Deserted Island, seems to symbolize the return of the traditional ‘alienated person’s experience in today’s world’ tale (The Legend of the Blue Sea, My Love From the Star). Park Eun-bin will play Seo Mok-ha, a lady who aspired to be a singer but was stranded on an isolated island for 15 years. Her rescue after more than a decade means she must now live in an unknown environment she is unfamiliar with. She still aspires to be a singer and embarks on the arduous but essential route without giving up hope.
The show will be directed by Oh Choong-hwan and written by Park Hye-ryun, which has piqued the interest of viewers. The character Seok Mok-ha will introduce audiences to a fresh side of actress Park Eun-bin. This is a break from her prior roles as a king and an Asperger’s Syndrome lawyer.
Meanwhile, Chae Jong-hyeop is said to be in negotiations for the male lead, Bo-geol. If Diva of the Deserted Island gets approved, it will signify his reunion with Park Eun-bin. The two collaborated on the 2019 drama Hot Stove League. They were not the romantic protagonists, but the actor did play a supporting part. The program is set to premiere in the first half of 2023.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo, Park Eun-most bin’s recent drama, has garnered her a slew of prizes.
While the 30-year-old actress has won several honors for her previous dramas, including Do You Like Brahms?, The Iron Empress, and Hot Stove League, Extraordinary Attorney Woo has become her most award-winning drama. Woo Young-woo, a lawyer with Asperger’s Syndrome, was portrayed by Park Eun-bin in the series. Despite the drama’s controversy, audiences were amazed by the actress’s abilities. This resulted in her receiving the daesang (grand award) at the Korea Drama Awards, the Critics’ Choice Awards’ Rising Star Award for TV, and the Asia Content Awards’ Best Actor, among other honors.
