Park Bo-young transforms into a feisty lawyer in the first stills from tvN’s new drama, Abyss, which were released on March 26.
Abyss will tell the story of a man and a woman who suddenly die and live again through a mysterious marble called Abyss. However, they are reincarnated with entirely different physical appearances and identity. The drama will follow the pair as they search for their real killers. It will be directed by PD Yoo Je-won, whom Park Bo-young previously worked with on Oh My Ghostess.
Park Bo-young plays the beautiful, hot-tempered prosecutor Go Se-yeon who works at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office. She used to have a pretty face that everyone falls for, but she gets reborn as a lawyer with an average-looking face.
In the stills above, she does not have much makeup on, and she looks like somebody’s typical girl-next-door. The actress shared that she chose Abyss because she wanted to show another side to her as an actress with the role of Go Se-yeon. “I am surrounded by the best cast and staff, and I am excited to work every day. I hope to share with our viewers the feelings I received as I read the script,” she shared.
According to the production staff, “Go Se-yeon is just like Park Bo-young herself. We can tell she [Park] knew everything about the character—including the tone of the voice. Our PD and other team members were impressed by how Park Bo-young was passionate about the role. We hope you look forward to Park Bo-young’s enthusiastic performance in the new fantasy drama Abyss.”
Abyss will air as a Monday-Tuesday drama on tvN in May, replacing the ongoing series He Is Psychometric.
