Can 20-something rookie broadcast reporters make their mark covering the bustling news of a busy metropolitan city?
The idealistic Choi In Ha (Park Shin Hye) has her work cut out for her when she becomes a broadcast journalist, especially when she suffers from a condition known as “Pinocchio syndrome,” which makes her break out into hiccups whenever she tells a lie.
Her rookie colleagues include Choi Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk), whose shabby appearance masks his true eloquence and sharp memory; Seo Bum Jo (Kim Young Kwang), a wealthy heir who has had everything handed to him in life; and Yoon Yoo Rae (Lee Yoo Bi), whose fangirl knowledge comes in handy in covering the news.
Can the 20-something newbie reporters pursue justice as they try to discover themselves in the process?
“Pinocchio” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Jo Soo Won.
