K-Drama Recommended: Pinocchio 피노키오 2014
A drama depicts love, frustration, growth and the competitive process of young people in their 20s becoming reporters as they cry and get hurt by truth but realize that as reporters, they must tell the truth. It will center the story of a man who hides a special talent living under a fake name and a woman who cannot lie due to ‘Pinocchio Syndrome’.-Dramawiki

SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pinocchio—the latest project from the writer-director team behind I Hear Your Voice—premiered today, and in keeping with their style, the show is sweet and light with a touch of idealism and heartbreak. I’ve always liked this writer’s very earnest approach, even if it’s not the most complex, and I especially enjoy when she uses an element of fantasy (hearing voices, for instance, or in this case—hiccupping when you lie) to magnify the themes. Here, it’s truth vs. lies, and how media distorts both sides, leaving you to wonder if the truth even matters anymore.
The first episode focuses mostly on the backstory that brings our characters together, but I already really like the glimpses we get of them in the present day. I think we’re in for a refreshing character for Park Shin-hye (thank ye, drama gods), and Lee Jong-seok gets a solid backstory that sets us up for the central conflict to come.-Dramabeans
Kalau menurut saya drama ini terhitung masuk selera sih. Pain, honest, secret admirer, lovely, journalism, handsome, warm, funny, etc. Drama yang sekarang ini selalu ditunggu setiap minggunya. Just love it.
