Park Shin Hye to star in Taiwan’s “Hayate the Combat Butler” drama

Park Shin Hye will also be starring in a Taiwanese drama just like fellow Korean actress, Goo Hye Sun, after she was cast in the female lead role of a Taiwanese remake of a Japanese manga byKenjiro Hata, “Hayate the Combat Butler.”

Park had seen a huge rise in her popularity after her drama “You’re Beautiful” was aired in Taiwan. Her popularity levels surged even further when she came to Taiwan for fan meetings, and this was a huge factor in her clinching the lead role for “Hayate the Combat Butler.”

Park’s agency expressed that Park had become very popular thanks to “You’re Beautiful”, and in order to increase her popularity further and become a true Hallyu star, she decided to take on this drama.

The story revolves around a boy named Hayate who serves as the butler, bodyguard, and friend to a girl named Nagi just so he could pay back his debt. Park Shin Hye will play Nagi, while Hayate will be played by George Hu.

Filming already began last month, and Park will stay in Taiwan until the end of the year. The drama is expected to greet viewers early next year through GTV.
