Unveiling a tantalizing teaser for her latest K-drama, Castaway Diva, Park Eun-Bin has fans buzzing with anticipation. Let’s take a look at what we know so far about her character in the series.
Park Eun-Bin plays Seo Mok-Ha, a young woman marooned on a deserted island, yearning for rescue. The drama tells her 15-year-long saga … Which began with a tragic accident en route to Seoul, where she aspired to become a singer.
The freshly released teaser offers a thrilling snapshot of Seo Mok-Ha’s life on the island. With indomitable spirit, she forms a large SOS sign from sturdy rocks, showing her lasting optimism despite years of isolation.
Castaway Diva should be an interesting take on the Robinsonade genre (a literary genre of fiction wherein the protagonist is suddenly separated from civilization, usually by being shipwrecked or marooned on a secluded and uninhabited island) widely explored in the West. Tom Hanks’ Castaway and The Martian are good examples of the genre handled well in cinema.
Giving the premise a Hallyu twist promises to make for a compelling narrative coupled with Park Eun-Bin’s brilliance as a storyteller, Castaway Diva is bound to captivate audiences. Park Eun-Bin last seen in Extraordinary Attorney Woo and The Witch Part 2: The Other One poised to deliver another must-see performance.
The series will debut on Oct 21 at 9:20 p.m. KST on tvN and will also be accessible for streaming on Netflix.
