Park Min-young cast in Sungkyunkwan Scandal

I’d heard the rumors, but now it’s confirmed: Park Min-young (Ja Myung Go) has been chosen as the lead in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, the “campus youth sageuk” drama that follows a group of popular students studying at Sungkyunkwan, an institute of higher learning established in the Joseon era.

Park will be the next young actress to dress as a male, as did Yoon Eun-hye in Coffee Prince, Park Shin-hye in You’re Beautiful, and Moon Geun-young in Painter of the Wind. Her character enters Sungkyunkwan in place of her sick younger brother, and she’ll form a romantic relationship with Micky Yoochun’s character. She’s a bright student and smart character with the ability to solve problems.

Park is the last to be cast (she replaces Jung Da-young, who had been cast earlier) and joins castmates Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, and Yoo Ah-in. The drama began filming on May 27 and is looking for a premiere date later this year. But first, viewers will be able to see her acting in the special four-episode drama Running, which premieres this Thursday on MBC.
