Kim Soo-hyun in SBS’s Giant







Aw man, now I may have to actually watch Giant. The drama that stars Lee Beom-soo and unfolds around the economic and urban growth of the 1970s hasn’t really tickled my interest, but I DO have a lot of interest in watching the growing career of Kim Soo-hyun, the rising actor who recently caught viewers’ eyes in Will It Snow For Christmas and the two-episode special Father’s House.

Kim Soo-hyun plays Sung-mo, an eldest son whose adult role will be played by Lee Beom-soo. When his father dies at the hands of two men (played by Lee Deok-hwa, Jung Bo-seok), this sends his family — comprised of his mother and younger siblings — on the run to evade them. They are chased by civilian employees of the military, and Sung-mo jumps from a train to save them from being caught and acts as a distraction.

Asked about filming the tough train scene, Kim laughed and said, “Maybe it’s because I’m young, but I didn’t feel that it was too tough.”

Giant will premiere in mid-May.

Park Jin-hee is Giant’s leading lady




Park Jin-hee, who just wrapped up a drama with MBC’s The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry, is quick to return to television as the lead in the upcoming SBS drama Giant. She’ll be the leading lady to the drama’s main actor Lee Beom-soo, playing his first love.

Park’s character suffers childhood trauma after her mother is chased away by her stepmother. In order to hide her own inferiority complex, she treats Kang-mo (Lee Beom-soo) meanly and decides to marry another man, but eventually realizes her love for Kang-mo. The role will feature her from her twenties through forties, as the drama covers a twenty-year span, beginning in the 1970s era of urban growth in Korea. Also cast are Hwang Jung-eum, Kim Soo-hyun, Jung Bo-seok, and Nam Ji-hyun.

Hm… I haven’t been very interested in Giant but I do really like Kim Soo-hyun (who pairs again with his young Will It Snow For Christmas co-star) , and now Park Jin-hee. May have to tune in periodically. Giant will premiere on May 10, following current historical drama Jejoongwon.

Giant kicks off with two-hour premiere




A producer explained, “Currently the scripts are coming out quickly and the filming schedule has some room, so the two-hour broadcast is to attract viewers’ attention.” The historical saga is set in the urban developmental boom of the 1970s and is built upon themes of ambition and love. It stars Lee Beom-soo, Park Jin-hee, Joo Sang-wook, Park Sang-min, Hwang Jung-eum, Lee Deok-hwa, and Jung Bo-seok, although the early episodes will be spent in the main characters’ childhoods. Those portions feature rising young actors Kim Soo-hyun, Yeo Jin-gu, and Nam Ji-hyun.[/ii
