Is it a case of life wanting to imitate art?
In MBC’s “Section TV” program’s feature on new generation Hallyu actors, Park Shin Hye revealed that she has met Jang Geun Suk’s mother, and that the older woman has expressed her wish for Park to be her daughter-in-law.
Jang and Park paired up in the 2009 SBS drama “You’re Beautiful.” Jang’s prickly A.N.Jell band leader Hwang Tae Kyung and Park’s nun-turned-idol Go Mi Nyu, masquerading as her twin brother Mi Nam, received much love and achieved a solid and devoted fan base.
The drama also became a hit abroad, spawning its own version in Japan, and gaining even more international recognition for the two actors, as well as other A.N.Jell members Jung Yong Hwa and Lee Hong Ki.
The two young stars are currently busy with separate projects: Jang shot “You’re My Pet,” a movie opposite Kim Ha Neul, and has announced a Japan promotional tour with Moon Geun Young for their 2010 drama “Mary Stayed Out All Night.” Park is in the midst of MBC’s youth melodrama “Heartstrings,” co-starring with Jung. Despite their individual activities, they are reported to have shown a close friendship by keeping up a friendly atmosphere during the interview.
