Lee Da Hae and Jang Hyuk Confirmed for Upcoming Drama “IRIS 2″



Lee Da Hae and Jang Hyuk have been confirmed as leads in upcoming drama “IRIS 2” by Taewon Entertainment, the production company behind KBS drama “IRIS” and SBS spinoff drama “ATHENA: Goddess of War.” The two stars were also ill-fated love interests in the 2010 KBS drama “Chuno” (also known as “The Slave Hunters“).

Earlier, it had been reported that Jang Hyuk and Lee Da Hae had been considering roles in the drama. Today, it was confirmed that they will take the leads in “IRIS 2.”

Jang Hyuk will be playing the role of Yu Geon who is the TF-A Team leader under South Korea’s National Security Service, who while in charge of dealing with the events surrounding Baek San and IRIS, begins a desperate struggle for his life, and gets caught up in events that fatefully change his life. Jang Hyuk, in the role, will go from being warm and humane to cold and dispassionate.

Lee Da Hae will be playing the role of Ji Su Yeon who is a gold medalist in pistol shooting, and becomes a TF-A Team agent under South Korea’s National Security Service. Lee Da Hae will be doing her own action scenes for the drama. Lee Da Hae’s character is normally off the wall, but shows unusual abilities in carrying out her missions.

In 2009, KBS aired drama “IRIS” was a hit with A-list stars Lee Byeong Hun, Kim Tae Hee, Kim Yeong Cheol, Jung Joon Ho, Kim So Yeon, Kim Seong Woo, and Big Bang‘s T.O.P., and a thrilling plot centered around South Korea’s secret National Security Service team’s work in preempting foreign threats, assassination attempts, another secret organization called IRIS, and the politics of reunification.

“IRIS 2″ which is scheduled to be aired in February 2013 will focus on Baek San’s arrest and explaining the origins and activities of IRIS.

"IRIS" producer confirms sequel



KBS’ 2009 hit TV series “IRIS” producer is gearing up to produce the sequel to the drama aiming to hit the airwaves next year.

Taewon Entertainment, the original series’ production company, is in the pre-production stage of the action-packed TV series' second season, a rep from the firm talked to the magazine over the phone Friday. “We are in the process of renewing and refreshing the original story [for the next season], so we have yet to to talk about the casting. We're aiming to air the show next year, but it has not been settled yet,” the official said briefly.

Industry watchers predict that producer Chung Tae-won will get his hands on the project after wrapping up filming the fifth installment of "Marrying the Mafia" series, a comedy pic due out this year. "IRIS," which aired back in 2009, stars some of the biggest names in the Korean entertainment industry including Kim Tae-hee, Jung Joon-ho, Kim So-yeon and Big Bang member T.O.P.

The espionage series dominated the primetime lineup during its run, between October 14 and December 17, with its viewership ratings reaching nearly 40 percent, and later turned into a big screen film, dubbed "IRIS: THE MOVIE" in 2010.

Jang Hyeok likely to star in "Iris 2"



Jang Hyeok is a likely candidate for "IRIS 2". He's going through the offer made by the "IRIS 2" production company Taewon Entertainment. He hasn't signed officially but it is very likely and what's left is just the decision making.

Jang Hyeok's recent drama "Deep-rooted Tree" and older "The Slave Hunters" showed strong action. Being an actual expert in martial arts, Jang Hyeok is said to be the most suitable person for "IRIS 2". Jang Hyeok is apparently one of the very few that has stardom and acting skills and he is just the right person for the blockbuster scale "IRIS 2".

"IRIS" was aired in 2009 and recorded a rate of almost 40%. "IRIS 2" was mentioned once when it was said director Gwak Kyeong-ta다 was offered to lead it. Tae Won Entertainment claims "IRIS 2" is still in planning.

"IRIS 2" is aimed for February next year.
