Kim Myung Min as the Korean Sherlock Holmes?

Posted Wed, 09/06/2010 - 11:16 by michi             

dsc2239n.jpg               

Sageuk lovers, rejoice! Kim Myung Min will soon be reborn as the Sherlock Holmes of the Joseon Kingdom!

Kim Myung Min has selected his next project even before his latest movie Man of Vendetta has hit the theaters. For the new movie "Joseon Detective Jeong Yak Yong: The Secret of Yulnyumoon" (working title), Kim Myung Min will play the role of Jeong Yak Yong, a brilliant scholar who had a keen eye for investigation.

This historical-mystery-comedy film is the adaptation of the second novel in the Baektappa/ 백탑파detective series penned by well-known historical novelist Kim Tak Hwan, one of the authors of the novels from which 2004 drama, The Immortal Yi Soon Shin was based.

The movie will be directed by Kim Suk Yoon, who helmed the movie (2006) and drama (2004) versions of Old Miss Diary. Filming is due to start in the middle of August.

Now, can you picture Bad Family's Oh Dal Gun and Open City's Jo Dae Young wearing traditional clothes a la Yi Soon Shin? I can't wait! teeth_smile.gif

Kim Myung Min is "Kim Jin"

cast-JYY.jpg

"Kim Jin" is the name of Kim Myung Min's character in his new movie, Joseon Detective (working title). Film actor Oh Dal Su (The Servant (2010), Thirst (2009), The Good, the Bad, the Weird (2008)) will play the role of "Lee Myung Bang", Kim Jin's good friend who assists him in the secret investigation of the death of a woman who allegedly committed suicide. Actress Han Ji Min will portray the yet to be named mysterious lady merchant.

Joseon Detective is loosely based on the second novel in the fictional mystery series by best-selling author, Kim Tak Hwan, who also wrote other famous novels that were adapted into film and TV such as The Immortal Lee Soon Shin (KBS, 2004-2005) and Hwang Jin Yi (KBS2, 2006).

The movie started production in early September, and its target release date is on Lunar New Year 2011. Old Miss Diary's Kim Seok Yun directs.

Remember the Showbox event on October 10 in Pusan where Joseon Detective Jeong Yak Yong was officially presented to the public? Did you know that each movie was presented through a video presentation?

For Joseon Detective Jeong Yak Yong,  the video presentation consisted of a footage of the movie and a clip where Kim Myung Min talks about his role.  He filmed the video about three weeks ago.

Now, I wish I could get hold of that introductory video....very soon! Can't wait to see Kim Myung Min transform into a Joseon-era detective! smile.png
