Iris gets explosive!


let’s turn our attention to what Iris is really about: explosions!

Apparently, lots of them, judging from the fresh batch of stills of KBS’s action thriller drama, which hits airwaves in (finally!) two weeks. The drama production boasts a budget of 20 billion won, and it looks like they’re putting that to good use with all the large-scale shoots and special effects. (That converts to just under $17 million, or $0.85 million per episode.) Iris began filming in March, and for the past seven months has shot in Japan, Hungary, and China, as well as at home in Korea.

Will blockbuster drama "Iris" get to pop the champagne?


"Someone said we should pop the champagne here. But we'll pop it once the series really becomes a hit," a member on the production crew of TV series "Iris" said of his confidence in the drama at a press conference held Monday at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul. As such, it would be strange if broadcasters did not take an interest in this drama starring A-listed actors including Lee Byung-hun, Kim Tae-hee and Jung Jun-ho, was in production for a year and has been promoting itself as a 'major blockbuster action drama'. A mass of media companies gathered to the press conference where the directors and stars of the upcoming KBS drama had to answer to a flood of questions for an hour.

The reason "Iris" needed to have and could even bring together such a cast was because of the scale of story which includes a confrontation between North and South Korea's intelligence agencies and the conspiracy surrounding the United States' military industrial complex. Edited versions of the first two episodes of the drama revealed at the press conference did enough to emphasize this point. Actors were constantly seen engaging in the action scenes which Lee called "close-to-life, like in the Jason Bourne series." Lee dangled in the sky on a single rope and Kim herself acted out a fighting scene in the subway. The drama was on a larger scale and contained more complex action scenes compared to previous films based on similar topics such as "Shiri". "Iris" also took the taste of its 21st century viewers into consideration, using satellite and closed circuit television technology to display various types of pursuit scenes rather than simply blowing up more explosives or having gunfights. Lee and Jung's acting was as stable as expected as their ad-libs tossed here and there into the script loosened up the mood at appropriate times.

Hence, it may be from the confidence in these factors that directors Kim Kyoo-tae and Yang Yun-ho emphasized in having to take a "drama-like approach" rather than worrying over the scale or perfection of the drama. Their concern was that the audience may become puzzled with the various characters involved in the story based on the two Koreas and the military-industrial complex of the U.S. "We can't pinpoint to a main enemy because the story is on such a large scale," Yang said of his worries regarding the drama, adding that they tried to make the first three episodes easier and more comfortable for the audience to understand. That is why "Iris" still has a few more episodes to shoot although it went into production well ahead of time. This is where you can see the producer's concern in having to create a so-called 'blockbuster' with topics unrelated to recent trends. In times where the drama market continues to shrink due to the economic downturn and viewership rates are on the fall, will "Iris" really get to pop the champagne?
