Hey this is another Korean Drama blockbuster, Pinocchio. Well, hmm… another sad or tragic love story? Not really this time we look into the world of young adults that coming out to face the real world. Sometimes the truth about our society is not as good as it look. You know what I mean, when people are nice to you it doesn’t mean they are good for you. So beware… Pinocchio narrates a coming-of-age story that revolves around four rookie reporters, who come together in their first real world social battleground.

Briefly, Pinocchio the drama series will be about 4 young adults’ first step into society, and the harried process by which they become journalists. When confronted with the truth they’ll cry, get wounded, and be discouraged, but as they grow up they’ll come to realize that protecting the truth is their job.

The heroine (Park Shin Hye) has a syndrome that causes her to hiccup whenever she lies. This encourages her to pursue a job that is after the truth and justice. The hero (Lee Jong Suk) on the other hand, does not believe in truth reporting due to an incident that happened when he was younger, which resulted in the death of his father.

This 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 but eloquent country bumpkin Choi Da Pol, who will eventually bloom into a dashing gentleman.  The series will follow the characters’ pursuit of truth, justice and most of all, love.
