Korean actress Park Shin-hye has confirmed her role in KBS’ forthcoming drama special, her agency 4HIM Entertainment said through a press release on Tuesday.

In “Don’t Worry, Because I’m a Ghost” (translated title), Park will play a ghost named Yeon-hwa and the cast members will begin the shooting later this week.

“Ghost,” which will air starting on July 15, will draw out the incidents that happen to Moon-ki (played by actor Bong Tae-gyu), who wakes up one day at a hospital after losing his memory. When he wakes up, he finds a lovely ghost, Yeon-hwa, next to him and the two fall in love with each other.

“We couldn’t think of any other actress to take on the role of Yeon-hwa besides Park.
Park herself is Yeon-hwa, who is a ghost in the story but has more lively energy than any other human beings,” producer Lee Eun-jin said, explaining about the reason for choosing the actress to take on the role.

4HIM added that Park was excited to star in the upcoming special, following her move “December 23,” and that the actress is studying hard on how to portray herself as the imaginary character.

Park first gained fame in Korea after appearing in the hit TV series “Stairway to Heaven” (SBS, 2003) starring Kwon Sang-woo and Choi Ji-woo.

Her filmography also includes movies “The Evil Twin” (2007), “Cyrano Agency” (2010) and animation “Green Days,” in which she has lent her voice to a female character.

With CNBLUE’s Jung Yong-hwa, whom she has starred in “Heartstrings” with, Park is preparing for her fan meeting to be held in comemmoratin of the premiere of the pair’s show in Japan, on July 16.

“Heartstrings,” which had aired in Korea between June and August last year, will hit the airwaves in Japan on Fuji TV, on July 9.
