Han Ga-in and Hwang Jung-min to return to dramaland?



Rumor has it that Han Ga-in (Bad Guy) and Hwang Jung-min (Accidental Couple / That Fool) might be returning to dramaland together, in the mega-million blockbuster cable drama Korean Peninsula, a cable drama from CSTV (owned by Joseon Ilbo, a news network). Nothing’s been confirmed on either side, but it’s a good sign that the production is finally back in the casting game.

It’s a drama that’s been in the works for a long time, rumored to once be the drama comeback vehicle for Jang Dong-gun, while other A-list names like Ha Ji-won and Park Shin-yang have been bandied about as well. But after those casting rumors died, the project seemed to be on the backburner for a while. Can’t imagine that Jang Dong-gun NOT doing your drama is anything other than a setback, but if Hwang Jung-min is set to headline, it’ll officially be back to being A-list.

There’s a 2006 movie of the same name (starring Ahn Sung-ki and Cha In-pyo), which is essentially the same setting, so it looks like the drama’s going to explore and extend that same premise — from what I understand, it’s a futuristic fantasy setup where the North and South Koreas reunite, and then all hell breaks loose over the two countries’ fight over natural resources. It sort of encapsulates the South’s fear in reunification, in a nutshell. Also the title, Han Peninsula, is han as in Korea, but can also be a play on One Peninsula, as in two countries, now one, on one tiny strip o’ land.

The real question for me is not so much in the casting, but in the drama itself, because this is a huge experiment in producing such a large-scale blockbuster drama outside of network television, with no intent to air on on the big three networks (KBS, SBS, MBC). In theory it could be a great way for the cable network to gain a foothold in the drama realm, with a big splash and A-list names (This is no doubt why Jang Dong-gun was their first stop). But the giant 20-million-won pink elephant in the room is… what if no one watches?

Cable dramas get something like a 1-2% share in ratings IF it’s a successful show. To compete with the big three, to somehow get a 20% share (the current marker of a ratings hit)… I just don’t know if it’s possible. It’s fascinating as an experiment because I do think that if besting the big three is your goal, going big budget, big stars is the only way to try and make a dent in the ratings. I do think the premise is pretty damn cool, and if these two were to headline, I’d be on that train in a heartbeat.

Korean Peninsula will be penned by writer Yoon Sun-ju, of Hwang Jini, and is set to air on CSTV in January 2012.

2AM’s Seulong to possibly pick up an acting role



2AM‘s Seulong has been reportedly cast in the new TV Chosun drama ‘Korean Peninsula‘. However, it seems it hasn’t been 100% confirmed as of yet as a representative stated, “It is true that we are currently in negotiations but nothing has been confirmed yet.”

His agency Big Hit Entertainment has informed TV Report on the 21st, “He has yet to sign the contract so we can’t officially say that he has been cast on the show.”

‘Korean Peninsula’ is a special series being released in commemoration of the establishment of the new cable channel, TV Chosun. The drama tells the story of a united Korea, instead of being divided into North and South. The drama scheduled to air sometime in December and tells a fictional romance story entailing enmity, action, and various ideologies.

The drama was written by Yoon Sun Joo, who has also written the scripts for “The Immortal Lee Soon Shin“, “Hwang Jin“, and “King Sejong“. The drama will be directed by Lee Hyung Min who has worked on projects such as “Sorry. I love you“, and “Ice Queen“. Hwang Jung Min and Kim Jung Eun have been also cast as the president and first lady, which is causing quite the stir amongst netizens.

If he officially joins the cast, Seulong will be playing the role of Hwang Jung Min’s assistant bodyguard.

2AM’s Seulong will not be acting in upcoming drama, ‘Korean Peninsula’



Earlier this week, it was rumored that 2AM‘s Seulong had received a casting offer for TV Chosun‘s upcoming drama, ‘Korean Peninsula‘. Unfortunately, representatives of both the drama and JYP Entertainment have revealed that Seulong was unable to accept the offer due to his busy schedule.

On October 26th, representatives stated, “Im Seulong had tried to balance his schedule to work with the drama, but ultimately couldn’t find a way to fit it in. He will not be joining the drama.”

Seulong was supposed to take on the role of a bodyguard for actor Hwang Jung Min, who will act as the president. He had participated in a recent script reading, which added weight to his casting rumors. Unfortunately, his schedule made it difficult to finalize.

Other idols are being considered for the role, as it is a highly important one in the plot. Producers stated, “At this point, we’re considering casting rookie actors.”
