Ko Hyun-joung to turn 1st female president in new drama

Actress Ko Hyun-joung, who played a charismatic royal concubine in smash hit TV series "Queen Seon-deok," will expand her grasp on such realm of acting by taking on the role of Korea's first female president in a new MBC drama.

An official at Ko's agency told Asia Economic Daily over the phone Wednesday that the 38-year-old actor has decided to take on the lead role in "Daemul," a drama adaptation of the comic book of the same name by famed cartoonist Park In-gwon.

Major broadcaster SBS had originally been set to air the drama in July last year but production halted when Ko, who had also at the time been tapped to play the same role, got involved in a lawsuit with the drama's producer Lee Kim Productions over a conflict regarding her appearance in "Seon-deok".

Ko reportedly resolved her dispute with the production company and rejoined the cast of the drama now set to air on MBC.

She will play the role of Seo Hye-rim, a human rights lawyer who is elected as South Korea's first female president. Korea has yet to see a female president in reality.

As a former Miss Korea runner-up, Ko rose to stardom after starring in 1995 hit TV series "Hourglass" and made headlines after marrying Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee's nephew Chung Yong-jin.

She resumed her acting career in 2005 after getting a divorce and fully regained her reputation as Korea's top actress this year, receiving the award for best actress at this year's MBC Drama Awards for her role in "Seon-deok."

I really love her acting [specially in What's Up Fox! & Queen Seon-duk], Can't wait for her new drama .

Daemul is back on with same stars

Buzz project Daemul (aka Big Fish) has secured its two leads — and they’re the same two leads it had signed before the project died due to myriad production problems.

Go Hyun-jung had made the decision to re-sign as lead a couple months ago, and now Kwon is about to finalize his contract with the production company, Lee Kim (Yigim) Productions.

This project has been through so many ups and downs that I remain half-disbelieving that it’ll actually make it to air, and the series has yet to be assigned a broadcast slot. Also note that this is now an MBC drama; it had been planned for broadcast on SBS in its previous incarnation. Still, with two big stars attached (again) — and with Go Hyun-jung leading MBC to ratings victory last year in Queen Seon-deok — it’ll probably push through this time. Or so we can hope.

For a quick refresher on plot: This manhwa adaptation features Go as Korea’s first female president, and Kwon as a male gigolo. Scandalous!

Daemul eyes a fall premiere on SBS

It looks like Daemul is close to getting an airdate on SBS; producers have been meeting with the broadcasters to set a date in stone, and while it’s not fixed yet, it’s likely to take the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot after the Hong sisters fantasy-trendy drama My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho. That drama will premiere in August, meaning Daemul will probably hit the air in October.

This comes after a rocky pre-production period two years ago that included PD switches, which was followed by a cancellation and even a lawsuit against one of its stars. (The production’s two leads, Go Hyun-jung and Kwon Sang-woo, went on to other projects after waiting for Daemul, but a dispute arose regarding whether they were free of their obligations. Eventually they worked it out and both stars are back onboard.) The project had been dropped by SBS, was rumored to be picked up by MBC, and is now back at SBS.

Daemul has attracted a lot of attention from the get-go; based on a manhwa, it features a relationship between the first female president and the gigolo who seduces her.

Park Hae Mi Joins in Kwon Sang Woo’s New Drama ‘Dae Mul’

Korean actress Park Hae Mi has been added to the cast list of an upcoming Korean drama ‘Dae Mul’ aka ‘Big Fish’ in which pairs two top Korean stars Kwon Sang Woo and Ko Hyun Jung. The drama will be Park’s second appearance in 2010 after her role in romantic comedy Korean drama ‘Personal Taste’ aka ‘Personal Preference’ which aired on March until May 2010.

In ‘Dae Mul’ based on manhwa (Korean comic) written by Park In Won, Park plays the role of woman politician who has a strong and charismatic figure. The drama initially tells about a human rights lawyer named Seo Hye Rim (played by Ko) who dreams to be the first woman president of Korea. To gain her goal, she is helped by Kwon’s character who is a first-class gigolo.

Park made her debut acting by playing in SBS’s TV series ‘Dear Heaven’ in 2005. Since then, she has appeared in several Korean dramas and a Korean movie. In addition of ‘Personal Preference’, we also watched her in ‘Everybody Cha Cha Cha’ (KBS, 2009) and ‘My Precious Child’ (KBS2, 2008). Last year, she made her debut film in ‘Sarah and Rami’

The drama originally was scheduled to air in 2008 but was put on hold after budget constraints and filming locations. Now, the drama has gotten a concrete spot on the broadcast schedule, and is scheduled to start airing on October 6th, 2010 through SBS.

Cha In-pyo added to the cast of Daemul

Veteran drama actor (and ’90s hottie) Cha In-pyo (Reputable Family) is jumping onboard the Daemul train, joining stars Go Hyun-jung and Kwon Sang-woo in the much-buzzed-about production.

Cha will play a political rival to Go Hyun-jung’s character Seo Hye-rim. As a former human rights lawyer, he runs for office against her but loses, and she is elected the nation’s first female president. Kwon plays Ha Ryu, a high-class gigolo. (Ah, well if he’s high-class…)

Cha’s character is also a member of a top chaebol family that with a strong presence in the political world. Not only is he Seo Hye-rim’s political rival, his relationship with her is also complicated by love and conspiracy.

Directing Daemul is Oh Jong-rok, who by the way is not the original director from the drama’s first attempt at production. Oh also directed Piano and Style (and I have to remind myself that the reason Style ranks on my unwatchable list wasn’t because of the directing, but rather the awkward writing and acting).

The drama premieres in early October.

Struggled Kwon Sang Woo, “Daemul” as restoration of honor?

Kwon Sang Woo who just experienced hit and run accident have a new upcoming drama, titled “Daemul” or “Big Fish” alongside with big name Ko Hyun Jung (Queen Seon Duk).

“Daemul” scheduled to air next October as SBS Wed-Thursday drama.

About the accident, KSW said through the website that he sincerely apologized and will do his best.
Meanwhile , “Daemul” which is adapted from popular manhwa with same title, will start first shooting next week, focusing on Ko Hyun Jung and KSW scene.

KSW will play a a male socialite / first class gigolo who is ordered to create a scandal to bring down a woman, Seo Hye Rim (Ko Hyun Jung), a human rights lawyer, who is trying to become South Korea’s first female president.

Go Kwon Sang Woo, Fighting !

Go Hyun-jung quits Daemul, then comes back

Most recently, leading actress Go Hyun-jung, who was cast two years ago playing the nation’s first female president, clashed with the production company and was ready to leave the project. With both sides not budging, broadcaster SBS stepped in to meet with Go in a hours-long negotiation, and managed to coax her back.

Lest you think she was pulling a diva stunt, she seems to have fair cause and I wouldn’t have held it against her for leaving. The production, Yigim (Lee Kim) Productions, sounds like it’s a bit of a mess, and keep in mind that they’re the guys who sued her for supposedly wrecking the filming schedule when she joined Queen Seon-deok, after she’d waited a year for Daemul to begin and been released from her obligation. (The production had already had director switches and delayed filming at that point, so it seems they were fishing about for a scapegoat.)

According to an SBS rep, Go’s dissatisfaction stems from the various production delays and problems. The drama is within 2 months of its broadcast date and hasn’t begun filming, which is a growing worry for the actress. Daemul was supposed to begin filming at the end of last month, but shooting was then pushed back a full month. A leading female role has yet to be cast. Producers had broken the promises they’d initially made to Go when she signed on. SBS began to worry that the show wouldn’t materialize, and the rep said, “She could no longer overlook this situation, so a week ago she presented the producers with her final card: quitting.”

Yigim’s CEO also gave an interview on Wednesday (the 21st) stating that the drama would absolutely continue and denied any rumors of problems, but that glossed over the growing tensions. That day, Go expressed her frustrations to SBS, and the next day SBS arranged a “secret meeting” with her to negotiate her return.

Lee Soo Kyung is sexy career woman in Daemul

28 years old Lee Soo Kyung is selected as main character in new SBS drama “Daemul”. In addition to Ko Hyung Jung, Kwon Sang Woo and Cha In Pyo, she was selected as main character of this new drama. This is chance for Lee Soo Kyung to transform her image as well as add tension to drama.

Lee Soo Kyung , while she has acted pure and elegant image in romance drama Loving You A Thousand Times and most recently as funny police officer in Call Of Country, in this new drama, she will show a naughty and sexy career woman who received MBA degree in abroad. This is a role challenge for Lee Soo Kyung but sure she will deliver it well.

Daemul will air later this year.

Lee Soon-jae is Daemul’s (other) president

Everyone’s favorite grumpy grandpa Lee Soon-jae is joining buzz project Daemul, playing the sitting president. Go Hyun-jung‘s character is the newly elected president and Korea’s first woman to gain that position, and will get tangled up with Kwon Sang-woo‘s gigolo character.

Lee Soon-jae is one of those veterans who is constantly working; no doubt you’ve seen him in a half-dozen projects, or more. Among them: Coffee House, Wish Upon a Star, High Kick Through the Roof, Queen Seon-deok, Beethoven Virus, Mom’s Dead Upset, I Love You Don’t Cry, Yi San. (And that’s just in the past few years!) Lee has also played a president before, in Good Morning, President with Jang Dong-gun.

Filming on Daemul is scheduled to begin filming in late August or early September. (Note that it was supposed to have begun in June, and constant delays are one of the drama’s recurring problems.)

Footages Of Daemul Shoots

Here are snapshots of the much anticipated upcoming drama, Daemul while shooting at an outdoor location. This SBS drama that stars Go Hyun-Jung, Kwon Sang-Woo & Cha In-Pyo is expected to air sometime in Oct.

Kim Tae-woo reteams with Go Hyun-jung for Daemul cameo

Kim Tae-woo (Tokyo Showers) will be showing loyalty to his former co-star and friend Go Hyun-jung in making a cameo appearance in her upcoming drama, Daemul.

The two have been paired together twice before, in the movies Woman on the Beach and Like You Know It All. In Daemul, Kim plays the ex-husband to Go’s president character (who is elected to the position following Lee Soon-jae’s tenure).

After a series of setbacks and broadcast scheduling issues, Daemul plans to make a November premiere, and has been filming since July. It will follow SBS’s My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho on Wednesday-Thursdays.

More Stills from Ko Hyun Jung & Kwon Sang Woo’s New Drama

Just released a few first stills on September 1, now the upcoming political-themed Korean drama ‘Daemul’ aka ‘Big Fish’ has released more stills which feature its leads Ko Hyun Jung, Kwon Sang Woo, and Lee Soo Kyung.

In the prior stills, Ko just posed showing rivalry atmosphere with Cha In Pyo’s character, in here she shows her charismatic figure as Korea’s first female president. These stills were taken from the first scenes when Ko meets with U.S. president in White House. Ko looks elegant and graceful in two-piece gray suit.

The other photos were taken from Kwon and Lee’s scenes. In the drama, Kwon portrays a gigolo named Ha Ryu who helps Ko’s character to be the president (but in recently articles, there is said that Kwon will portray a passionate prosecutor named Ha Do Ya, who is in a one-sided love with Ko’s character. Well, I’m still a little bit confused for Kwon’s character. I’m not sure which one is true, I think we have to see the drama’s next progress).

In these scenes, Kwon is investigating parliament’s leading member, which leads him into a physical fight. There is also Lee who comes to attempts interfering in Kwon’s investigation.

‘Daemul’ is scheduled to release on October 6 on SBS, following the current romantic-comedy Korean drama ‘My Girlfriend is a Gumiho’.

The mud gets slung in Daemul

Kwon Sang-woo becomes the victim of mudslinging, and I mean that in the literal sense, in a scene for his upcoming drama Daemul.

This particular moment comes in Episode 3, which airs October 13. His character, passionate prosecutor Ha Do-ya, speaks to a mob of protesters who have gathered to demonstrate against the development of reclaimed land. Ha Do-ya tells the crowd that they’re breaking the law and threatens to have them arrested if they don’t disperse immediately. Not surprisingly, that doesn’t exactly engender a warm response and the mudslinging begins.

Daemul premieres October 6.
