    Im Shi-wan goes from Moon/Sun to Equator Man
    by javabeans of Dramabeans

    xbrqu.jpg
    He played young Yeom in The Moon That Embraces the Sun, the young upright scholar who walked around bathed in luminous backlighting and entranced court ladies everywhere. Now idol-actor Im Shi-wan has been cast in the upcoming Equator Man, which will mark his second drama role.

    Equator Man is the straight-up melodrama from the writer of Women in the Sun starring Uhm Tae-woong as a poor-boy-turned-CEO. The hero finds himself in a fierce rivalry with his best friend from childhood, whom he’d known since growing up at an orphanage after his father was killed. But Im Shi-wan won’t be acting with Uhm, since he’ll play the childhood role of Uhm’s rival-friend. No word yet on who will play his character in adulthood.


    Too bad Baek Sung-hyun is now out of the running for playing young Uhm Tae-woong, so Im Shi-wan won’t get to act with him, either. According to his reps, Baek had considered the role when it was supposed to take up the first four weeks (7 to 8 episodes), but once that got cut down to four episodes instead, he decided against it. Baek is starting to graduate to leading man material himself, so perhaps those potatoes be too small.

    Equator Man is a KBS series that’ll take up residence on Wednesday and Thursday nights, following the soon-to-wrap Wild Romance. Unintentionally hilariously, the four-episode drama that airs after Wild is called Normal Romance, which will then be followed by Equator Man on on March 14.

    ok so I will just watch for LBY sake.. I dont like the male leads at all...too boring.... have to tolerate them I guess

    I dont know about the writer ... women in the sun was watchable but too ordinary...the director is good though...

    Lee Hyun-woo has been added to play the child role of Uhm Tae Woong. It'll be a reunion for them since Lee Hyun-woo played the younger Uhm Tae Woong in Queen Seon Deok too.

    OMG!!! It's Lee Hyun Woo!!. I will be tuning to watch him. He became so big now. Can't wait. Is there going to be heroine in the teen days? I'm hoping they could et Nam Ji Hyun. Other actress is ok too.

    btw, Uhm Tae Woong is in this is cool. Remembering his days in Resurrection . It was so good! but I don't know if the rating will be good as it will be airing the same as King 2 hearts and rooftop prince which both had young actors. Hope it will be good.

    Honestly, there's so little that's known about this drama that I don't even know if there's going to be a child version of the heroine.

    It is up against high competition and better yet they ALL start on the exact same day too. In terms of the leading actors (NOT actresses because the actresses in all three are great) I think Equator Man have the best line up. I mean I have nothing against the actors on the other dramas but out of the three leading actors (Lee Seung Gi, Park Yoochun, and Uhm Tae Woong) I think Uhm Tae Woong is the most solid one.

    I wonder if the 1N2D brothers are going to tune in and if they do which one would they choose? Lee Seung Gi or Uhm Tae Woong? :lol:

    I was under the impression that Lee Bo Young was the leading actress. Maybe Park Shi Yeon is just considering it as a second lead? I'm not too sure since I can't seem to find English translation on anything beside what we already know.

    Gotta agree with you for the actors. Uhm Tae Woong is the more experiences one. I will be tuning for all of the show because I love all the actors.

    But i'm sure this show will be the heaviest among the three. Just look at the scriptwriter.

    I'm hoping Pandrama will faster the promotion of this drama because I also wanted to know who is gonna be the leading lady not just rumours but a real deal. Just confirm it please. I know Pandrama are busy with their other drama wich is The moon embraces sun. but i hope they could focus on this too. There are too small news for this drama.

    where is the promotion .. seems KBS think it wont be able to compete anyway so they dont want to bother. seriously we only have 3 weeks for premier and there is no info whatsoever ...I only know that the kids will have about 4 episodes and then we will see the adults.. that LJH will be a famous Prosecutor and in order to get higher will bteray his buddy and that they will both be in love with LBY

    as far as I am concerned acting comes first I want to watch good acting and for me.. good sincere acting can save moderate writing but bad acting can not save the best scripts
    I think the kdrama scene is unfair cause the really talented ones are over shadowed by ppl who get the best ratings and those with the biggest fanbase.. like in this case Uhm Tae-woong is the best actor of the three without a doubt yet believe or not .. when I read the comments about him most of them are negative regarding his presence in 1n2d!!! while the other two loads of praise and I dont know for what..





    and I really dont think there is a young version of the female lead... I think they will meet as adults.. so the young version story is just the relationship between the two boys I guess

    I'm assuming Park Si Yeon is the second lead too because in all the articles that I've seen it always stated or made the indication that Lee Bo Young is the leading lady.
