However, the city is doomed to collapse under a gigantic earthquake predicted to hit the city within the next three months. There’s a chance to prevent the disaster by installing a special device underneath the city, but this would require cutting-edge technology and an unimaginable sum of money from all three countries.

Believing that this is the only way to protect their economy, the countries are quick to agree on this joint-operation and hasten their efforts in order to complete the device as soon as possible. However, somebody is trying to interfere with the project and attempts to assassinate the people involved. In order to protect the project and to find out who is behind the assassination plot, the three countries form a top-secret group, ‘Strangers 6′, which is made up of their best experts and agents.

“Strangers 6″ – Press Conference

Japanese director Kitamura Ryuhei has said he has been a big fan of Korean actor Oh Ji-ho since seeing him in movie “La Belle.”

He made the remark at a press conference for the Korea, Japan, China co-produced MBC TV series “Strangers 6″ in Seoul when asked how it felt to meet Oh for the upcoming drama.

“I didn’t know it when I first met him but I realized that he was the male lead from the film ‘La Belle,’” Kitamura Ryuhei said. “I personally really like the movie so much that I watched it about twenty times.”

“That is why when I saw him, I laughed to myself after thinking, ‘Oh! It’s that person!’ I feel that we were destined to work together,” the director added.

Oh Ji-ho has been cast to play the role of Park Dae-hyun, an agent at the National Intelligence Service who has perfect martial arts skills in “Strangers 6″ alongside actress Han Chae-young who will take on the role of a cool-headed agent named Ahn Ji-hae.

Japanese actors Karasawa Toshiaki and Masaya Kikawada / Chinese actors Yu Song Yan and Zhang Peng Peng

Recently, Japanese actors Karasawa Toshiaki and Masaya Kikawada and Chinese actors Yu Song Yan and Zhang Peng Peng were cast as the international agents in the show.

“Strangers 6″ tells the story of six individuals from Korea, Japan and China assigned by the highest level authorities of their respective countries to protect the three countries’ joint economic area from being interfered by an organization.

The show will be overseen by China’s leading production company Beijing Hualu Baina Film&Tv Co., Ltd. while Japan’s FujiTV, WOWOW and Index and Korea’s W media Contents, BnC Entertainment and HnB Pictures will take part in creating the series.

Pfft. Oh Ji Ho got my hopes up when he said that he was honored to be working with the best actors from Korea, Japan and China.

I was expecting to see names like Kimura Takuya and Abe Hiroshi in the cast.

The actual cast is a bit underwhelming. I don't think I'll be watching. :/

‘Strangers 6’ to go on undaunted'

Earthquake-driven plot of new multinational TV series to remain unchanged

No one could have predicted the massive earthquake that hit the coast of Japan on March 11, especially not the team and cast of the forthcoming quake-centric drama, “Strangers 6.”

On March 3, just nine days before disaster struck, a press conference in Seoul unveiled the ambitious joint collaboration among Chinese, Japanese and South Korean production companies and stars.

The multinational plot would center on a huge earthquake predicted to hit Dalian, China within the next five years that could wipe out Asia. A project is set in motion to prevent the natural disaster from occurring and the help of a team of six special agents from South Korea, China and Japan is enlisted.

Two weeks after the devastating event left Japan reeling from shock and nearly a month after the highly publicized press conference, “Strangers 6” head producer Shinya Kawai and fellow producer Toshio Toyoda flew in Friday to meet with South Korean production partner W MEDIA CONTENTS and discuss what steps need to be taken next. Fellow production partner BMC Investment and main South Korean cast members Oh Ji-ho and Han Chae-young also attended the meeting, W MEDIA CONTENTS director Lee Kyeong-cheol said.

Considering the sensitive subject matter and plans to shoot part of the series in Ishikawa, Japan, there was ample reason for all those involved to review the situation, especially when Japanese screenings of Clint Eastwood’s tsunami-flick “Hereafter” and the release of “Aftershock” ― a film about the 1976 Tangshan, China, earthquake ― were halted and delayed, respectively, in light of the current crisis.

After the meeting, Lee revealed there would be no changes in the original plot or delays in filming, with production scheduled to start in early April in China, where more than 50 percent of the drama will be shot.

The decision about whether or not to film in Ishikawa will be made in the second or third week of April, Lee added.

A representative of Oh Ji-ho’s agency declined to comment on how news of the earthquake has affected “The Slave Hunters” star, only confirming that he “will definitely be starring in the drama” and that he signed onto “Strangers 6” because it represented a new challenge for him as both his first tri-national project and first time playing a special agent.

Co-star Han Chae-young, according to an agency representative, is currently learning Mandarin and attending action school in preparation for her upcoming role.

Both Han and Oh will be playing South Korean special agents who join a team stationed in Dalian, China, tasked with maintaining peace within Asia while efforts are made to prevent a major disaster through a crucial project.

“The Great White Tower” star Toshiaki Karasawa, Japanese actor Masaya Kikiwada, Chinese actress Zhang Peng Peng, and Chinese actor Yu Song Yan will be starring alongside Oh and “Boys Over Flowers” actress Han.

The 10 billion won ($9 million), 22-episode series is currently slated to air in October or November on MBC and will also air in Japan and China.
