From the Producers of FERMENTATION FAMILY

The background of this drama is a traditional Korean restaurant
that is famous with its Kimchi.  Through the joyful and
touching stories of the restaurant family members,
who are not that perfect in their lives,
and the variety of stories of the restaurant guests
with all kinds of characteristics, the drama suggests
a direction of a heart-moving "alternative family".

Drama Writer:  Kim Ji-Woo
Product Director:  Park Chan-Hong

WRITER'S NOTE

Very interestingly, life of a man  is similar to the life of Kimchi. Kimchi’ tastes are bitter, spicy,  sour, sweet, and even puckery. These five kinds of tastes are exactly  same as those of the human life. Through the process of fermentation,  Kimchi generates lots of live micro-organisms. But, surprisingly, those  that are profitable to human being collaborate with each other to push  out the harmful ones. This is like love and sincerity of a person can be  the sources of overcoming frustration and disappointment.

When  all kinds of ingredients, that apparently don’t’ look to match with each  other, are blended in together and pass through all those processes,  then finally Kimchi is complete to produce such a profound taste. In  human life, many, who have different personalities and goals, meet with  each other, become to understand and love each other, and pass through a  process of being ‘fermented’ to form a new family. Kimchi’s life is  just same as that of the human life.

The background of this drama  is a traditional Korean restaurant that is famous with its Kimchi.  Through the joyful and touching stories of the restaurant family  members, who are not that perfect in their lives, and the variety of  stories of the restaurant guests with all kinds of characteristics, the  drama suggests a direction of a heart-moving ‘alternative family’.

No  matter how difficult human life would be, you can still be happy when  there are people around you that you can stay with them. This is the  wisdom of our ancestors that is fully soaked in Kimchi, and the drama  wishes to serve an enjoyable dinner table with such ‘smart’ and  ‘mysterious’ Kimchi dishes.

DRAMA REVIEW 

A no-pollution clean naturalism drama 

Gichan,  the father of Gangsan and Uju, the main characters, has managed the  Cheon Ji In restaurant with a heart that there should be no one  starving. With such a warm heart of Gichan, this drama shows the loving  heart of the family members that care for each other, the affectionate  relationships among the people, and the love that transforms hatred and  dislike to forgiveness, not to revenge. Whole Korea will be ‘infected’  by the ‘happiness virus’ through Kimchi Family. 

The encounter of the fantastic world of Kimchi and human being 

‘Hobak(Pumpkin)  Kimchi’ made by a poor son to serve his toothless mother, ‘Sesame leaf  Kimchi Ssambab’ made with a heart of chastising troublesome kids,  ‘Kimchi Jam Injeolmi Roll’ made to encourage kids forsaken by their  parents, and ‘Gukhwa Kimchi’ made to comfort people close to death, and  etc. …

So many kinds of Kimchis are introduced through Kimchi  Family. And, each kind of Kimchi bears its own kind of story. Such a  wonderful world of mysterious Kimchi with its varieties will be well  mingled with the lives of the characters in Kimchi Family to provide a  series of touching stories and lots of visual entertainments. Off  course, it will be a great opportunity to make known the excellent  characteristics of Korean Kimchi to all over the world. 

Meet the best humanistic family in Korea. 

Eunbi,  an eight year old girl, abandoned by her mother, Mr. Seol, an old man  living alone in an old apartment in the neighborhood and have meals in  Cheon Ji In, Pyeongman, a Korean medicine doctor who freely provides  herbal medicines for old people who have no money even tough he himself  lives in financial difficulty, and lots of other guests coming to the  restaurant with all kinds of their own stories…

Through a series  of ‘fermentation’ processes of these people, who were totally outsiders  from each other, to be a genuine family, like those processes of the  completion of Kimchi, the meaning of an alternative family can be  apprehended. 

A story warmer than a humanistic drama and lovely than a melodrama 

Hotae,  who used to live wildly as an gangster, met Gangsan, his toughest rival  in his life. These two characters always fight with each other but,  interestingly, shows very good harmony when crisis comes. When, Haejun, a  suspicious man who is so certain that Gangsan is his soulmate, join in  the stage, the drama joyfully describes the fermentation process of love  with number of unexpected developments.

Dosik, who cares and  loves Uju in his own style, dares even to dream to make Uju, who used to  meet so many bad guys, his love. The drama will show that how these two  characters eventually overcome many obstacles through the brave love of  Uju in a lovely and affectionate approach.

    Yay!.  Hi Kona....welcome back.

    The name is interesting but gives me nothing in the way of what may unfold in this drama.  Ahhh, yes...another cable channel heard from. 

    Song is a restaurant worker.  I wonder if he will be serving customers or cooking up delicious morsels or handling things behind the scenes....The fermentation process takes time so he will definitely win them all over....Are there grandparents and children in this drama since it appears like a family-owned business? 

    The more I think on this the more heartwarming it sounds.

    Song Il-Kook considers drama with Mawang PD

    Song Il-kook is reportedly in contention as the leading man in a  new  drama with an interestingly uninteresting title: It’s 발효가족, which  means  literally Fermentation Family. It’s a horrible sounding name, so  for now  I’m going to call it by its phonetic Korean name, Balhyo Gajok.  Phew,  that sounds better to my ear, strangely, though it means the  same thing.

    There’s barely any information about the project in official  news  reports, but from the dribs and drabs I’ve been able to pick up,  the  fermentation part of the title likely comes from the drama’s  involvement  with kimchi, although it also deals with gangsters. Now  there’s a title  for you: Kimchi and Gangsters. True, that would make it  sound much more  comedic, but then again, it’s not like fermentation  conjures up images  of badass gangsters either.

    But before you mentally check out of the show before it’s even  begun,  there’s one key consideration: Directing it is PD Park  Chan-hong, who  did Rebirth (aka Resurrection) and Mawang (aka The  Devil) — two dark  thriller dramas oft-noted for their high-quality  storytelling and acting  (and, as it happens, both starring Uhm  Tae-woong). That track record  right there is enough to make me sit up  and take notice, because it’s  rare that we get dark K-drama thrillers  that work well, and here’s a guy  with two standouts on his resumé.

    A rep confirmed that Song has received the script and is considering  the  role, but cautioned that it’s too early to make casting  statements.  (There are wee little rumors that Kim Jung-eun — I Am  Legend, Forever  the Moment — is in contention for the female lead, but  those are not yet  substantiated.) Song had a modest success last year  with the weekend  action drama A Man Called God, but fared less well  this year with Crime  Squad. Balhyo Gajok will be produced by Olive  Nine, but currently  doesn’t have broadcaster commitment.

    Song Il-Kook goes general service, in "Fermented Family"


    Actor Song Il-Kook chose to go general service.

    5688043393_1280c7f84f_o.jpg

    He confirmed a role in the jTBC drama "Fermented Family" which is also well known as director Park Chan-hong and writer Kim Jee-woo's come back project.

    Song Il-Kook   takes on the role of Ki Ho-tae who is blended into the  habit of rough   talking, not having the ability to plan things and  being spontaneous.
    Being  an orphan, Ho-tae thinks his parents didn't want him but  he  doesn't  hesitate to do anything. He just goes head first into  things but  unlike  his curtness, he is very warm inside.

    Song Il-Kook   starts shooting at the end of September. He said, "I am  happy to be   able to work with the writer and director I've wanted to  work with for   years. I usually take a while to read my scenario but I  read "Fermented  Family" very quickly and made my decision. I have never  had a role like  Ho-tae before so I look forward to myself acting it  out".

    Meanwhile, the drama is based in a  Korean restaurant famous for  its  Kimchi. Ho-tae finds a piece of his  past from the 'Cheon Ji-in' he  sees  on TV and spontaneously gets a job  working there. This drama is  due to  be released in December.

    jTBC  is South Korea's newest cable TV provider, supported by and  granted a  government license to operate in April 2011.  It is scheduled  to go on  air January 2012.  But it sounds like December 2011 now.

    I don't know enough to react to jTBC.  Will there be less pressure  with  ratings and filming?  It sounds like they will complete the  shooting  before airing.

    Park Jin-hee and Song Il-Kook Headline new Drama

    by girlfriday | September 28, 2011

                                  
    ParkJinHee_SongIlKook1.jpg


    Yay, Park Jin-hee is coming back to dramaland! The star of Giant and The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry has signed on to headline a new cable drama opposite Song Il-kook (Crime Squad). Song has been considering the role and other names have been bandied about for the lead actress, but both are now confirmed to star.

    The drama is called Fermentation Family or Balhyo Gajok,  which is just the weirdest title ever. But now that a character  description is in for Park Jin-hee, it starts to make a little more  sense (it still sounds horrible though). She’ll be playing a  naturally gifted chef who dreams of becoming the chef of the best fusion  restaurant in Korea. But the reality is that she’s the cook in a tiny  neighborhood joint with bizarre local clientele, including hotheaded  gangsters like the one played by Song Il-kook.

    The story is about the unlikely family that forms among the people  who are connected through this neighborhood eatery. So fermentation can  be literal, like with many Korean foods (kimchi, soybean paste), and it  can also be figurative, as in “raising a family.” I just wish it were a  better-sounding word in English. “Family” also takes on a double meaning  if it refers to the mobster family as well as the bizarro family that  forms around the leads.

    This drama comes from the PD-writer team behind Mawang / The Devil and Rebirth / Resurrection,  PD Park Chan-hong and writer Kim Ji-woo. Those aren’t exactly light and  fluffy dramas, which makes me think that this might skew towards the  dark thriller type of drama. That’s what I thought initially with the  writer, director, and Song Il-kook. But the premise as it sounds now  seems to center on Park Jin-hee’s character, and on her restaurant as  the focal point for this ragtag family. And to me, ragtag family sounds  comical (and awesome). It’s anyone’s guess which way it’ll go.

    Fermentation Family premieres December 7 on jTBC.

    The new star Kim Yeong-hun, who became famous in the drama “Crime Squad”, have joined the jTBC special drama for TV station opening.

    KimYeong-hun.jpg

    Actor Kim Yeong-hun appeared in “Crime squad” as a serial killer and fought a close psychological warfare against Song Il Kook, who appeared as a detective. This time in “Fermented Family”, he appears as a perfectionistic and germophobic Korean food chef O Hae-jun, and fought against Song Il Kook the second round.

    O Hae-jun, played by Kim Yeong-hun, has a handsome-looking, calm and gentle character, showy cooking skills, and wealthy family background. Seemingly he has everything and seems to be a perfect ideal type, but in reality he has a fragile mind and is timid, easily cross-grained cute nobleman.

    In “Fermented Family”, Hae-jun, whose mother is a skilled Korean cook, gets a job at the famous kimchi restaurant “Heaven, Earth and Man”, with the aim of becoming a Korean food chef and to be approved by his mother. And he have a conflict with Ki Ho-ttae(Song Il Kook) all the time, who just starts working at “Heaven, Earth and Man” at the same time. The drama depicts Hae-jun’s growing up process.

    Accepting the role O Hae-jun and joins “Fermented Family”, Kim Yeong-hun expresses his feeling : “ The encounter to the best piece “Fermented Family” and the encounter to the director Mr. Park Chan-hong, the writer Ms. Kim Jee-woo, I think all of this encounters are a destiny and a bond. As I get such a fortune and chance, I’ll do my best to perform Hae-jun, in order to reciprocate to the director, the writer and the audiences.

    As the appearance of Song Il kook and Park Jin-hee has confirmed, “Fermented Family” attracts increasing attention. It will be broadcasted as a jTBC opening special mini-series on December 7, 2011.
