“Pasta” first script reading


Upcoming MBC drama, “Pasta” cast and crew attended their first script-reading meeting last week on November 25. They met around 1pm at the MBC Ilsan Dream Center 6th floor. PD Kwong Seok Jang, as well as scriptwriter Seo Suk Hyang met up for the first time for the rest of the cast, Gong Hyo Jin, Lee Seon Gyun, Honey Lee, Alex, Byeon Jeong Su, Lee Hyeong Chul and many others.

“Pasta” will be Gong Hyo Jin’s comeback drama after “Thank you” ended three years ago. Lee Seon Gyun jumped right after he got married after “Triple” ended a few months ago. He’ll be playing the lead top chef, Choi Hyun Wook, whose also the owner of “Le Face” an Italian restaraunt. Honey Lee and Alex will be playing as their counter characters. Alex’s character is Kim San, who is also a chef and food critic.

According to PD Kwon, they’d like to draw a setting of how people come to love food, those who work with food in their daily life. How they push together to make delicious food to make people happy. And the writer also brought up the point of how there’s some preparation work to be done in preparing delicious pasta, but you can’t eat pasta all the time so writing about those people who centered around “Pasta” will be quite challenging.

MBC has planned to broadcast this new series in January 4, 2010 with “Le Face” Italian restaurant as the background.

Clazziquai’s Alex is nervous!


"I am a mere no-name newbie actor," he stated, "Therefore, I will go over to the acting field as a hardworking actor."

Alex also stated, "I will take my first step as an actor cautiously just as I remember taking a chung-shim-hwan (calming medication) before my debut stage as a singer, because I was so nervous."

A representative of Alex's entertainment company stated that Alex has been taking acting lessons two or three times a week, and has also gone on a diet in order to fully portray his character.

"From the dish of Life, the most important ingredient is memory," Alex stated, "A spoonful of happiness is enough. I think the most delicious dish with alcohol is a person. That being said, I have high hopes for 'Pasta' because I believe that it will tell stories of people through its dishes of food."

Kim Hye-soo’s brother pursues acting career


Kim Hye-soo (Style) has been a top star for a number of years now, and now her younger brother is getting his shot at acting: The 31-year-old Kim Dong-hee (above) has been cast to play the younger brother to Gong Hyo-jin’s character in the new MBC drama Pasta. He said, “At home, Hye-soo noona gives me a lot of acting advice. I want to learn a lot from Gong Hyo-jin sunbae.” (Gong is younger, but as an acting veteran, she is Kim’s senior and therefore gets called “sunbae.”)

Every now and again, it’s interesting to take a look at stars’ siblings, such as with Ha Jung-woo and Jo In-sung. Perhaps the best examples of both siblings being successful in their individual careers are the Uhms (as in Jung-hwa and Tae-woong) and Kim Tae-hee and Lee Wan.

The Kims have a third sibling who’s also in the business: middle brother is 35-year-old actor Kim Dong-hyun, who has had roles in dramas Mun Hee and Secret Lovers.

Kim Dong-hee has appeared in music videos, but his official acting debut came as one of Sorabol’s ten Hwarang warriors in Queen Seon-deok. In Pasta, which incidentally takes over Seon-deok’s Monday-Tuesday timeslot, he’ll play a studious medical student. Pasta premieres on January 4.

Gong Hyo Jin gives gifts to “Pasta” crew

We often read news about actors/actresses giving warm jackets for crew during the cold weather time, and this time is Gong Hyo Jin’s turn to give some for her “Pasta” crew.


Gong Hyo Jin offers gifts of warm winter jackets to staff
Upcoming MBC drama, “Pasta” Gong Hyo Jin is reported to give out some warm jackets and winter apparels to all of her staffs during the shooting on the 12th at the Italian restaurant they’ve been working in. She picks a list of sizes for the crew and staff to pick and choose their colors and sizes. There are about 112 items to give out, and she even picks the best quality ones to give out.
According to her, “when you’re working on a scene in drama, or taking a shot here and there, you always see that the staff – people behind the curtains are the ones who work the hardest. As a way to thank them, I’m happy to be able to give out something to warm them during our working hours. It’s a small donation from me to wish them a warm winter in this cold winter time.”

Behind the scenes from Pasta’s outdoor shoot


Here is our first look behind the scenes on the set of MBC’s Pasta, which had previously released its promo stills and posters.

Since the drama is set in an Italian restaurant, much of filming takes place indoors, but apparently whenever the shooting heads outside, the actors have been greeted with a cold snap. Leads Lee Seon-kyun and Gong Hyo-jin, who play a head chef and assistant chef, respectively, said, “I don’t know why it always turns so cold whenever we shoot a scene of us meeting [outside]. Our relationship in the drama is already chilly, and the weather isn’t helping.”

The two characters first encounter each other in a minor collision at an intersection. Gong Hyo-jin and Lee Seon-kyun run into each other while she’s holding a goldfish in a plastic bag, which sends her falling to the ground. Trying to save the fish, they cup water in their hands. Lee Seon-kyun said, “At first my fingers lost feeling, and later on they burned with heat.”

Recently, the two spent the night filming an outdoor scene at a pojangmacha, and the shoot was greeted with the first snow of the season. In the scene, she heads to a pojangmacha alone after being fired from her job by Lee Seon-kyun. There, she finds him sitting by himself in a glum mood and can’t bring herself to sit in front of him, so she turns around and mutters insults about him to herself. He, on the other hand, is only pretending to be on the phone while he listens in, and a confrontation ensues.

The drama describes the two as “a man who loves to cook” (Lee) and “a woman who cooks love” (Gong). Pasta premieres January 4.

Okay, I just finished episodes 1 & 2 - this drama is cute. I like it (so far). Gong Hyo-jin and Lee Seon-kyun have amazing chemistry and I can't wait to see how their relationship progresses. Honey Lee and Alex were alright, acting wise.
