and a lengthy summary:


Is the 25 billion won grand production 'East of Eden' starring Song Seung-Heon the 'Hour Glass' of the 21st century? [02-14-2008]

'East of Eden (Script: Na Yeon-Sook/ PD Kim Jin-Man)' with hallyu star Song Seung-Heon as main cast is a megadrama with 25 bilion won (~ $25 million usd) invested in production cost. 'East of Eden' is the 2008 project of ambition for Chorokbaem Media, which also produced 'Jumong' and 'Unstoppable Highkick', and upon casting Song Seung-Heon in starring role, and actors like Yoo Dong-Geun as main cast ensemble, the drama will go into production in March.

The producers plan to film throughout Asia, including Hong Kong, Macao, China, Japan, as they paint an unconventional modern history of Korea from the timeline of 1960s to 2000s. 'East of Eden' draws on the story of two men, who were born on the same day at the same time at the same hospital, and their crossed destiny and revenge.

This story will go back to the 1960s, the era of major student protesting activities. Lee Ki-Cheol (Lee Jong-Won), a front-runner of the student protests is thrown into guilt when his lover's older brother dies instead of him, and he arrives at the coal-minining region of Kang-Won provence. There he tries to stop the evil-acts of Shin Tae-Hwan (Yoo Dong-Geun Jo Min-Ki) of the TaeBaek coal mining station, by organizing a labor union but he is eradicated at the hands of Shin Tae-Hwan. Lee Ki-Cheol's eldest son, Lee Dong-Cheol (Song Seung-Heon) witnesses the event and vows to seek revenge.

Meanwhile, a nurse at TaeBaek hospital, Miae, who suffered violation from Shin Tae-Hwan switches Shin's newborn son with Lee Ki-Cheol's son. Thus, Lee Ki-Cheol's son grows up as Shin Tae-Hwan's son Shin Myeong-Hoon (Park Hae-Jin), while Shin Tae-Hwan's son grows up as Lee Ki-Cheol's son Lee Dong-Wook (Yeon Jeong-Hoon).

Lee Dong-Wook is recruited into his older brother Lee Dong-Cheol's revenge plan over their father's death, and Dong-Wook enrolls in law school at the Seoul University, and becomes a prosecutor. Meanwhile, Shin Myeong-Hoon is raised as heir of a conglomerate, and Lee Dong-Cheol goes over to Hong Kong to begin a new life as the right-hand man of a Korean casino godfather (Yoo Dong-Geun). This is the intense epic centered around these characters who realize their fates have been switched, and the events of modern history intertwined with their lives.

On the account of prosecutor, organized hooligans, and conglomerate storyline, 'East of Eden' seems similar to the most popular drama of the 90s, 'Hour Glass,' the Kim Jong-Hak and Song Jina combo work. However, if 'Hour Glass' centered on the pains of an era, 'East of Eden' roots itself on the blood ties that are peculiar to Koreans.

Producers reveal this drama is a work of humanism with its basis set on the love and devotion of family, the sticky blood ties, and the sentiments that are peculiar to Koreans. It is set to air through MBC this June.
