Kim Ha-neul considering So Ji-sub drama

Actress Kim Ha-neul is considering taking on war drama "Road Number One" opposite top actor So Ji-sub who has been set to play the leading male role, according to Kim's agency on Wednesday.

An official at J.One+ Entertainment said Kim was asked to star as the main female character in "Road" and is looking into the script with a positive outlook.

The official also played down reports that Kim has decided to play the part, saying they are still in discussions with the producers of the drama which is set to go into shoot starting January next year.

"Road", co-produced by Lee Jang-soo of Logos Film and Kim Jin-min at major broadcaster MBC, will be an epic war drama about the Korean War and a sixty-year love and friendship.

The 16-part series, written by Hahn Ji-hoon who wrote the script for Korean box-office blockbuster film "Taegukki", is also set to be sold to 21 countries which participated in the war.

Kim, 31, has enjoyed steady popularity in Korea since her debut in 1996. She has starred in numerous hit TV movies and dramas, including hit film "My Tutor Friend" in 2003 with fellow Hallyu star Kwon Sang-woo and SBS TV series "On Air" last year.

Road Number 1 casts Yoon Kye-sang




Yoon Kye-sang has signed on to join So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul in MBC’s war epic series Road Number 1, which is bound to be one of the big buzz shows of next year. With those three leads in place (as well as Choi Min-soo and Sohn Chang-min), the main cast is now complete.

Yoon Kye-sang and So Ji-sub will play comrades and friends, while the love triangle with Kim Haneul will additionally set the two up as rivals. The Korean War drama takes its title from the name of the road that served as the main passageway from North Korea into Seoul, and from Seoul into Pyeongyang, during the war in 1950.

The cast held their first script reading at the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan on December 19. The production begins filming on January 4 and airs in June, in time to commemorate the sixty years that have passed since the war.

Julien Kang added to Road Number 1




Can’t say this has me too excited: Canadian model-actor Julien Kang has been added to the Korean War epic drama Road Number 1, which stars So Ji-sub, Yoon Kye-sang, and Kim Haneul. According to Kang’s management, he will be playing a U.S. Marine platoon leader.

I wasn’t really impressed with Julien Kang in Dream, where he played one of the Flower Fighters (a team of mixed martial artists made up of pretty boys), but he’s apparently doing better playing a warm character in the family sitcom High Kick Through the Roof. While he films that currently running series, he has been working out and training in martial arts in preparation for Road Number 1, which he will soon begin filming.

Road Number 1 will air on MBC in June.

I'm looking forward to this one. I haven't seen Choi Min Soo since The Sandglass, so hope this is good.
Also haven't seen anything of So Ji-Sub or Kim Han-eul, so hope they impress me.

First stills from Road No. 1




First stills are out for MBC’s large-scale war epic, Road No. 1, which stars So Ji-sub, Yoon Kye-sang and Kim Haneul.

So Ji-sub said, “The script is interesting, and working with a director, staff members, and actors who are all so skilled makes me really happy. The atmosphere on set is really great, although these days there has been a lot of snow and the weather is freezing, so it’s been difficult on the actors and production crew to endure the filming deep in the mountains. When we act, our mouths are all frozen so we can’t even speak clearly.”





Road No. 1 is filming much of its footage in advance of its June premiere, but the shooting schedule is still packed. So acknowledges that it’s hard work, but he’s enjoying the experience fully.

Kim Haneul said, “When I read the script, I felt it deeply. It’s a period of time that our grandmothers and grandfathers experienced in reality, so acting their lives was a huge honor.” About her character, she said, “Soo-yeon isn’t just one person, but someone who feels like everyone’s mother or lover. It’s my first attempt at a period drama and because of the scope of the people’s emotions, I feel a lot of anticipation. I’m filming every day with excitement. It’s difficult on a physical level, but even more so, acting each scene with Soo-yeon’s wide range of emotions is so challenging it leaves me breathless.”

Yoon Kye-sang, whose character grows up with military parents and is fiercely patriotic, said, “It’s truly an honor to be a part of such a large-scale drama. It’s a wonderful opportunity as an actor, and I feel driven to work hard.” Like his co-stars, he also commented on the tough filming conditions: “It’s a little tough to film in the mountains and the cold, but ultimately it allows us to convey a realistic setting, so it’ll be better for the viewers. There’s a lot to see in this drama and the story is extremely interesting.”

Road No. 1 boasts a production budget of 15 billion won and has been in the works for three years. It premieres in June.[/bl

"Road No. 1" sold to Japan before release in Korea


MBC's war drama "Road No. 1" has been purchased by a Japanese media group ahead of its premiere in Korea, according to Logos Films on Friday.

"Road No. 1," set during the Korean War, was attained by Hakuhodo Media Partners, one of the largest media and content business companies in Japan, although only 60 percent of the drama has been shot.

An associate from Hakuhodo is said to have explained that it purchased "Road" because the series was based on a gripping storyline, a strong script and enthusiastic performances by its actors including Hallyu star So Ji-sub.

“I think "Road” caught the attention of those at Hakuhodo with its heart-wrenching story, sad melodrama and beautiful imagery despite it being based on the Korean War," a producer with Logos Films was quoted as saying through a press release. "They praised the spectacular snow scenes and action sequences we had finished shooting."

Logos Films is set on selling the show to other regions throughout the world which took part in the war such as the Americas and Europe.

"Road" is about the love triangle and friendship amongst three people during the Korean War. It is helmed by director Kim Jin-min whose previous works include dramas "The Age of Heroes" and "Shindon."

The new Wednesday and Thursday drama, set to go on air June 6, stars some of Korea's top actors including So Ji-sub, Kim Ha-neul, Yoon Kye-sang, Son Chang-min and Choi Min-soo.

Kim Ha-neul says "first time receiving such a moving script"



'The promise of friendship and love that is fulfilled 60 years later' is the main copy for upcoming MBC series "Road No. 1" which is set to air on June 23. The drama shows the the turbulent times of the Korean War, but its story revolves around the three main characters Jang-woo (played by So Ji-sub), Soo-yeon (played by Kim Ha-neul) and Tae-ho (played by Yoon Kye-sang) who experience love and friendship during the chaos of the war. The audience is probably expecting more from the three actors since the star-studded cast is already bringing enough attention to the drama. Will the stars be able to pull off the roles of ordinary characters Jang-woo, So-yeon and Tae-ho who are faced with the war? Below are the excerpts from the press conference attended by actors So Ji-sub, Kim Ha-neul and Yoon Kye-sang.

10: The faces of the male actors have gotten very tanned -- it shows that you were faced with many hardships. Both of you look rugged as well.
So Ji-sub (So): I have gotten very tanned and also have heavy makeup on. I lost three kilograms and some of my muscles too because unlike in other productions, I can't have the image of being in shape.
Yoon Kye-sang (Yoon): I play the role of an elite military officer, who among his troops, gets hit by the most grenades because he has to fail in order for Jang-woo to rise in the ranks. There are many scenes where I fall and I think a lot of them will turn out well from seeing how rough my hands have gotten.

10: It must have been dangerous.
Yoon: There were many dangerous scenes but I worked hard while in shoot because the director said it looked 'cool'. (laugh) I wasn't worried even a bit despite the scenes being difficult because I knew the director did a great job shooting each scene.

10: You may not have had as hard of a time as the two male actors in the physical sense but I bet as an actress, it isn't easy to let go of the visual aspect of how you're seen to the audience.
Kim Ha-neul (Kim): I have never felt burdened by that at all. I think the biggest concern as an actor is how to do well in expressing a character that I really like. What was most important was how I understood my character Soo-yeon and act it out. That doesn't mean that I don't think about how I look but the producer said that the drama would fail the harder I try to look pretty. (laugh)

10: What were your reasons in choosing this particularly difficult production?
Yoon: I read the whole script from part one to part 20 without stopping for ten hours straight when I first received it. I felt that if they made the drama exactly like the script, it would become a memorable production for the audience and it was really fun as well. I couldn't help taking it on because I liked the drama itself so much more than my character.
Kim: This was the first time I have received a script that is fun and moving even though I have shot over 20 movies and dramas in total. I don't think it's important that the role of my character Soo-yeon is small compared to my roles in the past. I took on the challenge of playing the role of Soo-yeon because I felt that she was someone with big presence. I had my doubts, wondering whether I would be able to pull off a character that felt like my mother and my home, as opposed to in the past when I felt I could play whatever role I decide to take on. That's why I had a hard time.
So: I think luck was on my side since I was able to star in this drama. People say I choose productions that are difficult but it's not fun to play the handsome guy wearing a suit. I like roles that allow me to get physical. Maybe I'll pick a difficult production for my next role again.

10: Since you have finished shooting over 80 percent of the drama, are there any memorable scenes or episodes that come to mind?
So: I remember every scene, not just one. I recommend the viewers to watch it from the beginning to end because it's hard to say exactly when to start watching.
Kim: I agree with So. The scenes containing my character are very strong, even if I may not have as big as a role compared to my past characters. Some scenes are usually edited out after they're shot but most of my scenes won't be cut. Not only are they scenes which have impact but they're also necessary for the flow of the story.
Yoon: Honestly, I can't remember a thing. When we shoot the war scenes, I just think about how to get about, as if I was in an actual war situation, thinking about how I should avoid the enemy and on focusing on Jang-woo when I see him.



Korean actress Kim Ha-neul at the press conference for "Road No. 1" [MBC]

10: Kim Ha-neul, what are the strong scenes that you just mentioned?
Kim: I have never shot a melodrama as if it's an action scene. I would end up with bruises on my body after the scenes because that's how full of energy I was when shooting it.
So: We really did shoot the romantic scenes as if in war. I think you may get to see something you have never seen before. I myself was surprised while shooting them.
Kim: I wonder if the show will meet the censorship criteria. (laugh)

10: It must've not been easing being an actress who usually does not shoot revealing scenes. What made you do it?
Kim: First of all, I trusted the director and like I already said, the situation wasn't forced at all and it was a much needed scene for the drama. I don't think it's right to bare your skin if it makes me think 'Why do I have to?' but it's understandable in our drama.
So: When you watch the drama, it'll seem more beautiful than risque.

10: You would have to become close with your co-stars in order to play the role of someone who falls in love with both actors -- So with whom you modeled for fashion brand Storm and with Yoon you had filmed the movie "Lovers of 6 Years".
Kim: Yoon and I already been for quite a while since we had shot the movie together. We would joke around and make fun of each other on set. Sometimes he would provoke me. (laugh) I think that is why it felt comfortable while we were shooting. But this was the first I had seen So since 1997. We didn't really talk that much at the time because we were both introverted and it wasn't that long after we made our debuts.
So: I think we had only met about a total two to three times.
Kim: We had to have good chemistry quickly because in the drama, we are two people who are deeply in love with each other. Sp we worked really hard at it and were able to complete the shoots successfully.

10: Did you try to meet outside the set to become closer? For example, go to drink?
So: We never went drinking together. We had such a tight schedule, where we would come on set on Monday and go home on Saturday.
Kim: We became closer after shooting the love scenes.
So: I think we'll make many headlines today. (laugh)
