Ji Sung to headline Haeundae Lovers?



New drama alert! Upcoming KBS drama Haeundae Lovers, named for that famous stretch of city-on-beach in Busan, is the next project from writer Hwang Eun-kyung, of City Hunter and New Heart. The show is currently courting Ji Sung (Protect the Boss) as its hero, which would mean a reunion for New Heart’s star and writer, if he signs on.

The 16-episode drama is described as a romantic comedy, but the plot sounds thicker than your average bear: A detective on the organized crime task force is chasing down a gang when something happens to make him lose his memory. He ends up wandering through Haeundae and somehow finds himself entangled in that same gang’s criminal activities.

Huh. Interesting. Does the cop end up a criminal? And where does the romance fit in? Is the mob boss a fierce gangster lady? ‘Cause that’d be fun. It seems like a fresh idea to set amnesia into the premise for comedic purposes. It’s at least the version of that trope that hasn’t been done to death, and I rather like the cop-forgets-he’s-a-cop-turned-gangster idea. Isn’t there some pop psychology about cops and criminals having very similar personalities? Makes you wonder if it’s a similar set of instincts, just one set reined in by law and order.

So far, two big plusses: an all-location shoot in Haeundae, and the odd premise, which sounds like wacky fun. Haeundae Lovers will follow Big on Mondays/Tuesdays on KBS.

That would make this Ji Sung's second amnesia drama. The plot sounds too much like Time Between Dog and Wolf except it's going to be a comedy.

Jo Yeo Jung and Kim Kang Woo Cast In 'Haeundae Lovers'



Jo Yeo Jung and actress Kim Kang Woo will be casting for the KBS 2TV's new drama, 'Haeundae Lovers,' scheduled to be released in August. Senior officials in KBS said, "The two individuals have not yet signed the contract, but it is getting finalized."

Last August, Jo casted in the drama 'I Need Romance 2012' on tvN, but this is the first time she will be taking a lead role. As for Kim, his latest acting was shown in 'The Slingshot' on KBS 2TV back in June 2009.

As Kim and Jo have recently gained popularity- Jo through the movie 'The Concubine' and Kim through 'Taste of Money'- the new drama 'Haeundae Lovers' is expected to appeal to a wide audience.

'Haeundae Lovers' is about an inspector who used to track down gangs who loses his memory and eventually finds himself in living amidst former gangs in Haeundae County. It is a romantic comedy taken live in Haeundae that combines drama, action, and love. Hwang Eun Kyung, the same writer for drama 'New Heart,' has written most of the script.

Publisher SSD has already contacted Haeundae County, Kyung-Sung University, and Dong-Suh University, and has signed the MOU. 'Haeundae Lovers' will be released in August as a follow-up to the drama, 'Big.'

Jung Suk-won to play lawyer in Cho Yeo-jung, Kim Kang-woo's new TV series



Korean actor Jung Suk-won will co-star in Cho Yeo-jung and Kim Kang-woo's upcoming TV series on KBS, according to his agency Forestar Entertainment. Forestar said in a statement on Monday that Jung has been cast to play Choi Jung-hyuk, who is a lawyer and branch manager of a hotel located in Busan, in the "Lovers of Haeundae" (tentative title).

In the 16-part series, which has been set to air every Monday and Tuesday nights starting August 13, Choi will be portrayed as a hard-working manager at his father's hotel in order to be acknowledged for his efforts. While he tries hard to get his parents' approval, Choi gets involved in a love triangle with Go So-ran (Cho) and Lee Tae-sung (Kim). Go is the daughter of a gang member living in the city of Busan while she comes into contact with Lee, who begins to live with her family after suffering from memory loss.

"My character in 'Haeundae' is completely different from my role in last project, 'Rooftop Prince.' I'm really excited and nervous about showing a different side of myself as an actor," Jung was quoted as saying.
