Cha Seung-won returns to Korea for health reasons



Actor Cha Seung-won, who departed for Japan over the weekend to film upcoming TV series "ATHENA", has returned to Korea following a deterioration in his health.

An official with the show's producer explained that the model-actor flew back to Korea on September 13, a day after he had left for Japan, and is currently being treated for his illness.

"We will decide on when he will be returning depending on the pace of his recovery", an official from the show explained. Cha's condition has not been revealed.

Meanwhile, "ATHENA" is currently being filmed in Japan with Cha's shooting schedule and parts of the script modified.

The show, the spin-off to last year's blockbuster drama "IRIS", is about terrorist acts and threats against the Korean Peninsula and the whole world.

Filmed in six different countries including Japan and Italy, "ATHENA" features a star-studded cast of Jeong Woo-seong, Soo Ae, Lee Ji-ah, Kim Min-jong and Choi Si-won of idol group Super Junior.

The action series will begin its run in November.



BoA tweets photo from Athena filming



The recent career shift by BoA into the field of acting was a pleasant surprise.

On September 17th, she tweeted a photo from her “Athena: Goddess of War” filming with the caption, “Wow, handsome body guard photo, must be taken by a fan… Actually, I was secretly at Japan filming for Athena.” She also said, “Athena will be aired this December. Acting is so difficult~”

Her cute nature can be heard through the tweet.

She will be making a cameo as herself (singer) with Jung Woo Sung acting as her bodyguard. “Athena: Goddess of War” will debut this December through SBS.

Check out additional pictures released by Taewon Entertainment below.

Jejoongwon’s Sean Richard joins Athena




Another addition has been made to upcoming spy drama Athena, which premieres in December (Giant‘s extension has pushed the premiere back from its original November target): Sean Richard (or Sean Richard Dulake), the Korean-American actor who played Dr. Allen in SBS’s medical sageuk show Jejoongwon.

If you don’t recognize him, I don’t blame you; he was styled drastically differently in Jejoongwon, where I thought he was about twenty years older than his real age. (He’s 26.)

In Athena, he’ll be a part of Cha Seung-won‘s secret organization, shedding the gentler image from Jejoongwon to dive into the action genre.

Via OSEN


Sean Richard (as he is known in the Korean press) was born to a British father and Korean mother and majored in business administration at Boston University, with a minor in acting. Following that, he continued acting in theater and shorts in New York.

Athena has moved from shooting in Italy to Japan, and will premiere in December on SBS.

Choi Siwon tackles high action in the streets of Japan




Speaking of Athena, now it’s Choi Siwon‘s turn for some of the attention. He’s pictured in these stills on location in Japan, where his appearance attracted quite a bit of bystander interest. No doubt some (most?) of that stems from his idol star status as one of the many pretty boys of Super Junior. And yes, he’s lookin’ sharp.

In this scene, his spy character is sent to settle a suspicious occurrence in Japan. What ensues is a high-action sequence involving a dangerous chase in the crowded streets, hampered by the throngs of citizens nearby.

Choi plays a rookie spy with the NTS who looks up to the agency’s top spy (Jung Woo-sung) as a mentor figure and follows his lead loyally. Athena airs in December.

Cha Seung-won has 'viral infection'. Even with the surgery, he has been staying in hospital for 25 days.



Actor Cha Seung-won has been receiving hospital treatment for 10 days even after the surgery.

Cha Seung-won’s has been staying in hospital for 25days until October 7th. He had a removal operation during the end of September. He was tested for viral infection and removal of infected area. After this, he is receiving hospital treatment.

At first, he was planned to get out from the hospital in early October but his hospitalization is extending without any further notice.

Cha Seung-won flew to Japan for the shooting of MBC’s new Mon-Tue drama ‘ATHENA’. But he went back to on September 13th Korea because his condition worsened. The result from the complete medical examination said that he had serious viral infection due to the food poisoning.

But he decided to receive a surgery due to the fact that he never recovered to his normal condition. One high official from the production team of ‘ATHENA’ explained, “Cha Seung-won is receiving hospital treatment for full recovery after the surgery. The situation is not that critical. He had surgery to scrape up the infection instead of being treated with drug.”

Cha Seung-won is planning to rejoin the shooting of ‘ATHENA’ in Hawaii after October 20th.

Kim So Yeon to Replay Her ‘IRIS Role for ‘Athena’



Korean actress Kim So Yeon has been confirmed to replay the role of North Korean agent for upcoming blockbuster drama ‘Athena: Goddes of War’, as she did in its original drama ‘IRIS’.

Kim’s character named Kim Sun Hwa, a strong and charismatic North Korean agent who works under Kim Seung Woo’s orders. She will return in the spin-off for a major plot twist in the story. But, it’s said that the drama will have a 180-degree tranformation of the Sun Hwa role.

When ‘Athena’ was scheduled to release in November, Kim initially refused to re-appear because she had another drama project ‘Dr. Champ’. However, since its release was postponed to December, she finally decided to accept the role.

Kim will join the drama’s filming in New Zealand as soon as the filming of ‘Dr. Champ’ wraps up in late November.



A Surprise Hollywood Casting for ‘Athena’



SBS’s new spy-action Korean drama ‘Athena: Goddess of War’ (the spin-off of IRIS) has never stopped to make a big shock. Filming in Hawaii has added Douglas Day Stewart as an unexpected surprise casting. He is the famous American screenwriter whose most notable works are Richard Gere’s ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, Brooke Shields’s ‘The Blue Lagoon’, Demi Moore’s ‘Scarlet Letter’.

In ‘Athena’, he will not write a script as usual, but he will play one of the drama’s characters. The producers seem didn’t much care about Douglas’s personal background that has co-worked with many Hollywood stars. They worked well in synchronized.

Douglas’s poker face is expected suitable to play as the head of secret organization called ‘Athena’ where charismatic actor Cha Seung Woon makes his move. He is the man behind all orders to be given to Cha’s character and also all incidents occurred.

These pictures here are Douglas and Cha’s scenes where the both enjoy a leisurely golf game while tension was completely digested.

‘Athena’ premieres in December through SBS.
