Park Bo-young returns to tvNActress Park Bo-young has been confirmed to star in the tvN drama, “Oh My Ghost,” for which she will be given the highest appearance fee among the actresses to have starred in the broadcaster’s TV series, according to a source affiliated with the channel.
“This is the first time that the 25-year-old will take part in a drama series since ‘Star’s Lover’ in 2008,” the source said Saturday. “Park’s acting abilities have been affirmed in her other projects, like ‘Scandal Makers’ (2008) and ‘A Werewolf Boy’ (2012), all of which were considered when determining her pay.”
The person added that the actress is “receiving so much because she is making her comeback in the drama series after a long hiatus, and also because tvN is not a ground-wave service channel [with limited coverage].”
According to some reports, Park will be paid nearly 30 million won ($27,000) for the upcoming drama.
Many other renowned actresses have appeared in popular dramas on the network. Kang So-ra and Go Ara appeared in tvN’s popular dramas, “Misaeng” (2014) and “Reply 1994” (2013), respectively, though neither earned as much as Park.
Audiences can currently see the 25-year-old in the mystery-thriller “The Silenced,” which was released Thursday. She is also scheduled to appear in the films, “You Call that Passion” and “The Mutant.”
