Published

on

The actors of JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama “Itaewon Class” (literal title) are fired up in a new behind-the-scenes video!

“Itaewon Class” is based on a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of youths who fight against an unfair world with determination and style. The drama will follow a group of people as they chase after freedom and open up new businesses in Itaewon.

The behind-the-scenes video begins with Park Seo Joon feeling awkward in front of the camera as he says, “I feel like I’ve become a YouTuber.” Kim Da Mi also asks, “Will this keep filming?” The two actors make small talk as Park Seo Joon asks, “Did you bleach your hair?” Kim Da Mi explains, “I bleached it, and I also dyed it.” Yoo Jae Myung soon joins them and expresses his surprise at the camera, prompting Park Seo Joon to comment, “It feels as if it’s inspecting us.”

Park Seo Joon talks about his character Park Sae Roy, saying, “He has determination, and he is a character who shows his persistence and honesty.” Kim Da Mi shares that her character Jo Yi Seo is a sociopath. The behind-the-scenes video also introduces Yoo Jae Myung who will be playing Jang Dae Hee, the merciless and cold head of the food conglomerate Jang Ga, and Kwon Nara who will be playing Park Sae Roy’s first love Oh Soo Ah.

The actors are also joined by the webtoon author, Jo Kwang Jin, who watches as the actors passionately dive into their roles during the script reading. Among the actors are Kim Dong Hee, who will play Jang Dae Hee’s second son Jang Geun Soo, Ahn Bo Hyun, who will play Jang Dae Hee’s first son Jang Geun Won, and Kim Hye Eun, who will play Jang Ga’s executive director Kang Min Jung. Ryu Kyung Soo and Lee Joo Young will play Choi Seung Kwon and Ma Hyun Yi, respectively, who are both employees of Dan Bam. The video also hints at a new character that wasn’t in the original story.

“Itaewon Class” will premiere on January 31 at 10:50 p.m. KST. Check out the latest teaser here!

Jo Jung Suk volunteered to take a pay cut on behalf of the tvN drama “Hospital Playlist.”

On May 5, a media outlet reported, “Jo Jung Suk voluntarily reduced his appearance fee of 90 million won to 100 million won (approximately $73,800 to $82,000) per episode to 70 million won (approximately $57,400) per episode. He is placing significance on his participation in ‘Hospital Playlist’ itself.”

Insiders from the drama industry explained, “As the No. 1 actor for casting in dramas, Jo Jung Suk usually receives around 90 million won to 100 million won per episode. But due to his trust in producing director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung, he voluntarily reduced his appearance fee. This kind of actor is really rare and he’s becoming a great role model on set.”

They continued, “It’s rare to see an actor of Jo Jung Suk’s brand power voluntarily taking a pay cut. He’s a really great, loyal actor.”

After debuting in the 2004 musical “The Nutcracker,” Jo Jung Suk has appeared in many dramas including “The King 2 Hearts,” “You Are the Best,” “Oh My Ghostess,” “Two Cops,” and “Don’t Dare to Dream,” and the films “EXIT,” “Intimate Strangers,” “My Annoying Brother,” “The Face Reader,” “Architecture 101,” and “Hit-and-Run Squad.”

Jo Jung Suk has been recognized for his outstanding acting skills and charming characters in each of his projects. His wide acting spectrum from the sly Nap Deuk in “Architecture 101” to the cranky but warmhearted Go Doo Shik in “My Annoying Brother” has allowed viewers to get immersed in the stories.

The actor married singer Gummy in October 2019 and announced they’re expecting their firstborn in January.

Lee Min Ho Is Flawless In Uniform In “The King: Eternal Monarch”

Published

on

SBS’s Friday-Saturday drama “The King: Eternal Monarch” has released new behind-the-scenes photos of Lee Min Ho!

The drama tells the story of Emperor Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho) and detective Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun), who live in parallel universes — one where Korea is a constitutional monarchy and another where it is a democracy — but they work together to try to save lives.

Throughout the drama, Lee Min Ho has worn multiple outfits including his black imperial attire and an equestrian uniform. However, his white naval uniform in particular has been attracting the attention of viewers.

In the recent episode, Lee Gon appeared in a naval uniform as he prepared to confront Japan after they invaded Korea’s waters. Reflecting the line in the drama, “In their most honorable moments, the imperial family wears uniforms,” Lee Gon’s strong sense of responsibility is represented by his change of attire.

Lee Min Ho’s white naval uniform is getting a hot response as people admire his ability to look charming in all of his character’s outfits. In the newly released photos, he appears charismatic and handsome no matter which outfit he wears. In his white naval uniform, he shows a sense of duty while he performs a military salute.

Lee Min Ho stole the show with both his looks and his passionate acting in the recent episode, which returned to double-digit ratings.

“The King: Eternal Monarch” airs on Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. KST.

Park Hae Jin will be taking on the role of Han Seung Min, a star professor at the police academy who suddenly rose through the ranks of the world’s criminal psychology field with the thesis he wrote in his 20s. However, with a sudden confession of murder, he becomes confined in prison with a life sentence. Han Seung Min is a mysterious figure who begins a mental game with Yoo Hee, his detective partner, lover, and disciple, in order to steadily solve the crime.

Previously, Park Hae Jin shocked viewers with his acting as the youngest genius psychopath killer Lee Jung Moon in OCN’s “Bad Guys,” and viewers are looking forward to what transformation he’ll make in “Crime Puzzle” after gaining even more experience as an actor.

Lee Min Ho Talks About Acting With The Horse Maximus + Kim Go Eun Describes Why Role In “The King: Eternal Monarch” Was New For Her

Published

on

The leads of “The King: Eternal Monarch” sat down with “E-news Exclusive” for an interview!

The new SBS fantasy romance drama tells a story about two parallel universes: one with a democracy that is similar to modern-day Korea and one that is an alternative universe in which Korea is an empire ruled by a monarch. Emperor Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho) and detective Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun) work together to protect the ones they love and close the portal between the two worlds.

The drama’s stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun appeared on the April 22 episode of “E-news Exclusive” and talked about preparing for their roles and more.

When asked what they’d learned for their characters, Lee Min Ho said, “I worked really hard at practicing rowing and horseback riding. Also, honestly, playing an emperor isn’t something you can really prepare for.” The interviewer jokingly asked if he meant that he already had the attitude of an emperor, and Lee Min Ho laughed.

“Lately it’s okay if people just admit this kind of thing, right?” he replied, referring to how he’s adjusting to the industry after his military discharge. “It’s because I’m the very definition of an emperor.”

The show also shared footage of Lee Min Ho filming while horseback riding. He talked about his screen partner, the horse Maximus.

“Maximus is really cute,” he said. “His nose gets red when it’s cold out. Also, he enjoys the candy that I like. It’s lemon-flavored. When filming was over, we’d each have a piece of the candy.”

A clip was also shared of Lee Min Ho appearing concerned as he watched Maximus seeming a bit restless. He said to the staff, “When we’re done filming, please let Maximum go free for a bit. He’s getting stressed.”

Lee Min Ho was later shown staring into the horse’s eyes and saying, “You have to remember me.” While filming another scene, the horse was at a distance from Lee Min Ho but then came right up behind him, which turned the scene into a blooper but made the actor smile.

Kim Go Eun was asked about taking on a detective role for the first time, and she replied, “It was really great to be able to put handcuffs on people.” Her response surprised Lee Min Ho, and the pair laughed.

She explained, “Usually I play people who are being chased, but now I put handcuffs on them and coolly take them away.”

Kim Go Eun went on to say that she’s been in action films before and she was feeling confident about this role too. However, she found it more difficult than expected to do things like reach the height of the kicks that she’d aimed for and achieve the strength needed, so she went to a taekwondo studio near her home and practiced hard.

The actors were also asked what their reactions were when they’d heard that each other had been cast for the show.

“I was very happy because she’s the actress that I most wanted to work with out of our peers,” he said.

Kim Go Eun said, “As soon as we first met, I told him, ‘I was a member of the Kim Tan line,’” referring to Lee Min Ho’s character in “Heirs.” She added, “I think he’s really the best” and playfully gave him a thumbs up.

The interviewer went on to ask the two stars what job they’d like to do in a parallel universe. Kim Go Eun said a doctor and explained, “I thought that I wanted to be a doctor if my skills were good enough.”

Lee Min Ho said, “I’d be a ballad singer,” which made everyone laugh. Kim Go Eun said, “He has a very pretty voice.”

The interview said that he could achieve this dream in this universe too, and Lee Min Ho said, “I think that would be difficult to do in this life.”
