Inspired by the world-renowned fable of the same name, Pinocchio will star two of South Korea’s brightest young television stars, Lee Jong Suk (I Hear Your Voice, Doctor Stranger) and Park Shin Hye (The Inheritors). The coming-of-age story delves into the lives of childhood friends Choi In Ha and Choi Da Pol who are budding journalists at a current affairs news desk. Park Shin Hye’s character Choi In Ha suffers from the incurable Pinocchio Syndrome – a ‘medical condition’ that causes her to be afflicted with violent hiccups whenever she tells anything but the truth. Lee Jong Suk plays the scruffy-looking country bumpkin Choi Da Pol, who will eventually bloom into a dashing and eloquent gentleman. The series will follow the characters’ pursuit of truth, righteousness and most of all, love.
