Everyone’s favorite baby-faced man-boy Chun Jung-myung (Cinderella’s Sister, What’s Up Fox) is looking at his next project…a sageuk? Historical dramas aren’t his usual fare, but it’d be his first, so I’m all for uncharted waters. Thankfully, it’s a fusion sageuk, so there’s bound to be enough cheekiness to go around.

The drama is MBC’s upcoming [짝패] meaning “pair, duo, companion” a la The Marx Brothers, or Bonnie and Clyde. Until they come up with an official English title, I’m going with The Duo. Hm. Sounds like a Western, huh?

The fusion sageuk is a Joseon-era tale of two men, one born noble and the other born a slave…who get switched at birth and live each other’s lives. Has potential, depending of course on how far off the deep end they go with the melodramatics. I enjoyed this basic setup in East of Eden, for instance. That is…until they beat that dead horse into a pulp, fed it to a NEW horse, then beat THAT one till it died.

If cast, Chun Jung-myung would play the character of noble birth, living as a slave. PD Im Tae-woo (Air City) was careful to say that nothing has been finalized, especially on the heels of the rumor that Han He-jin (Jejoongwon, Terroir) would star as the love interest for both men, which got squashed.

I don’t know if babyface is going to pull off looking anything other than…baby-faced in sageuk garb, but I have faith that he’s got the acting chops to pull it off. I just hope they don’t make him in any way whiny or pathetic, as his Cinderella’s Sister character still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Personally, I’m in the mood for something different, so perhaps this’ll shape up to be a nice change of pace in 2011.

The Duo is set to follow Birdie Buddy, which is set to follow Queen of Reversals. Except Queen of Reversals refuses to end. Hey, you’re holding up the line!

Kang Ji-sub makes sageuk debut in The Duo




Another actor has been added to The Duo, MBC’s upcoming buzz project: Kang Ji-sub, who joins castmates Chun Jung-myung, Han Ji-hye, and Lee Sang-yoon in the switched-at-birth sageuk drama where boys born to a nobleman and a slave are swapped and grow up living each other’s lives.

Kang Ji-sub, the 29-year-old actor of Fine Windy Day and Women in the Sun, will play Chun-dong’s (Chun Jung-myung) only friend in the drama, and is also the leader of a gang that is dominant in the region. Described as extremely loyal, he’s a man who’ll risk his life for his friend.

Kang debuted in 2005′s Love In Heaven, and will be making his first foray into the sageuk genre with The Duo. He’s currently busy training in martial arts for what I anticipate will be many action scenes. Hmm, looks like there are a number of sageuk newbs in this drama, although that’s not automatically a bad thing…

The Duo will air in February, after the recently extended Queen of Reversals wraps.

Script reading session for MBC drama The Duo



With production off to a late start, MBC sageuk drama The Duo is finally moving into high gear for its upcoming premiere, and has released photos from its script reading.

Pictured here are the series’ three leads, Chun Jung-myung (Cinderella’s Sister), Han Ji-hye (East of Eden), and Lee Sang-yoon (Life Is Beautiful).

Lee Sang-yoon arrived an hour late to the reading, earning him the joke by PD Im Tae-woo (Air City, Dandelion Family) that his tardiness required a song. Lee immediately launched into the national anthem, setting an upbeat atmosphere.

In the drama, Chun Jung-myung is born to a noble family, but grows up in a beggar’s hut and becomes a Robin Hood-like heroic outlaw. Lee Sang-yoon has the opposite fate, born a beggar but raised as a nobleman. Han Ji-hye is the daughter of the village schoolteacher who becomes caught in a love triangle between the two men.

The Duo will replace Queen of Reversals, which was extended to allow this drama more time to prepare. It premieres in mid-February as a Monday-Tuesday series.

The Duo Unveiled Its Poster



There are plenty of buzz about this drama from netizens (some named this drama as City of Violence) The Duo starring Chung Jung-Myung (Cinderella’s Sister), Han Ji-Hye (East Of Eden), Lee Sang-Yoon (Life Is Beautiful) tells the story of two babies switched at birth. It does not matter if both babies landed into a family of the same social status but … horror .. a noble birth baby being raised as a slave and vice versa.

More From The Duo










Gong Hyung Jin and Jin Se Yun joins The Duo



Gong Hyung Jin who just finished his role as playboy Master Jang in KBS drama Fugitive : Plan B landed again in saeguk drama The Duo. The 40-year-old actor will play a senior police of Gwidong.
We spotted him with lead role in Dalja’s Spring and then saw him in important role in hit saeguk Chuno where he played a rebel slave. It’s good to see him again, hope he’ll bring more fun for The Duo.



Meanwhile, 18-year-old Jin Se Yun also joins The Duo. She’ll play the child version of Dong Nyeo (the older version is played by Han Ji Hye).
This is the first saeguk drama for Jin Se Yun who debuted last year through SBS drama It’s Okay, Daddy Girl.
Jin Se Yun very happy but a bit nervous because she must play the child version of her respectful senior, Han Ji Hye. But she promises her best.


The Duo debut Monday, February 7, replacing Queen of Reversals.
