Park Shi Hoo Returns in Neighborhood’s Hero


Park Shi Hoo – my fave man because I think he’s a talented actor had the scandal not marred his reputation – is coming back in a drama. And, it might also star Yuri from Girls’ Generation, but I care far less about that. Heh.

My favorite actor has signed on for the OCN drama Neighborhood’s Hero. He’ll play Baek Shi Yoon, a former black ops agent who tries to lead a quiet life while operating a small neighborhood bar. He observes the people who come and go at his bar, and eventually finds himself training an aspiring police officer to be a secret agent. Batman and Robin much? Considering the show is on OCN, I think it might have the same aura as My Beautiful Bride – a drama with an equally innocuous title and yet proved to be far darker and grittier than expected.

I’m quite excited to see Park Shi Hoo return because I really enjoyed him in Prosecutor Princess and Cheongdamdong Alice. It’s been a tough few years for him to get back in the game, and so it’s nice to see him make a slow return to dramas and acting. He’s reintroducing himself to the Korean market with a CF and some ads for Newe cosmetics, where clear porcelain skin is the name of the game. And we cannot deny that Park Shi Hoo has freaking good skin.


Jo Sung Ha has also confirmed to appear in the drama, and it looks that Yuri is in talks to sign on. Not quite sure what her role is, but I don’t particularly care for her in this drama. Granted, I’ve never seen her act (and she was in Fashion King and cameoed in Kill Me, Heal Me), so she could easily be a surprise like Sooyoung was for me in Dating Agency Cyrano. However, I heard that Fashion King wasn’t great to begin with, so I don’t have high hopes in what she can do here.

The drama will be directed by Kwak Jung Hwan, who previously did Chuno, Runaway Plan B, and Conspiracy in the Court. Filming begins in September, with an air date hopefully sometime early next year.

I can’t wait!!

  1. Does it not affect you about what kind of person he is in real life? He may be the bestest actor (which he is not) but if he is not a good person…heck even a decent person, it’s very difficult for me to see him on my screen.

    by the way, the girl in the featured pic doesn’t look like Yuri at all…is it her?

    • I have my favorite actors and writers that I’d like to follow around, so I’m just really excited to see him have an opportunity to work again.

      And you’re right – that was not Yuri! It’s been fixed!

  2. i’m very happy to see PSH again. he’s my favorite Mr. Catman.
    people shouldn’t be mean. isn’t it better to always give a second chance? and PSH isn’t even convicted!
    i will definitely watch him again and anytime always!
    PSH, fighting!

  3. Cant help not to say this so pls pardon me if u “who doesnt like psh” is still here…

    Dont you think that saying judgemental things against someone who you do not know personally is somehow rude and uncalled for? This is, i repeat, if you do not know him on personal level.

    Even convicted were due to a second chance.

    I know we all have our different reasons for liking and not liking anyone but we should also know how our opinion might affect the person we are against with. Mind you, celebrities are also human. And in cases like
    Psh’s, let the court decide his fate.

    Unless, you were there and witnessed the crime…? Or you have had a bad personal experience with him that you hated him on that level?

    Nevertheless, i do not intend to argue/fight with you, its just that i thought i had to share my thoughts.

    And to kaedejun, thank you for the articles youve posted, appreciated it a lot.
