‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo,’ which aired in June last year, started at 0.9% in the first episode but received much love, recording a peak viewership rating of 17.5% in the final episode 16. With this series, Park Eun Bin won the Daesang at the 59th Baeksang Arts Awards.

Many associate Park Eun Bin with ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo,’ saying she portrayed the most iconic character of her career. However, Park Eun Bin has once again captivated viewers as Seo Mok Ha, stepping out of the character Woo Young Woo.

At the ‘Castaway Diva’ press conference, Park Eun Bin expressed her commitment to portraying Seo Mok Ha, who is good at singing. She said, “I felt responsible from the moment I decided to sing for the character. I put in efforts similar to a debut as a singer. Since it was my character’s dream to become a diva, I worked with the determination of someone on the brink of their debut.”

In reality, Park Eun Bin’s singing skills in the drama have astonished viewers, matching those of professional singers. Park Eun Bin needs to be versatile in dancing, dialect, and even playing guitar for the role of Seo Mok Ha.

Park Eun Bin reportedly received the script for ‘Castaway Diva’ while filming ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo.’ The anticipation is high for whether Park Eun Bin will lead ‘Castaway Diva’ to higher viewership ratings like ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo.’
