remake drama School ...
Nineties drama School gets a revival

New drama alert! Well, old-drama-becomes-new-drama alert, technically speaking. Popular ’90s high-school drama series School is getting a modern reincarnation, and the 2012 version produced by Bae Yong-joon (Keyeast/Contents K) has landed a broadcast slot in December on KBS.

The first names attached to the project are Kim Woo-bin (A Gentleman’s Dignity, White Christmas) and Lee Yubi (Nice Guy), who have already been paired once before on the sitcom Vampire Idol. (He was an alien vampire who fell in love with her inside a bunny mascot costume, not knowing there was a girl inside. Adorable.) Both actors are reportedly considering roles in the high school drama remake.

School was an immensely popular series that premiered in 1999, that featured fresh young faces and dealt with realistic issues teenagers faced in high school. It went on to air four seasons total with a new cast of characters each time. Now ten years later, Bae Yong-joon is likely trying to brand a similar hit series that has multiple seasons in its arsenal, much like he originally tried to do with Dream High. (But oh, how sideways that sequel went.)

School has all the makings of a franchise because it’s less about a set story and more about a world (school, natch), and rests entirely on collecting a hot young cast. The original was as much a star-making factory as it was a drama series, as the roster of familiar names can attest.

Just a few of the stars who passed through its halls: Jang Hyuk, Ha Ji-won, Jo In-sung, Lee Dong-wook, Gong Yoo, Im Soo-jung, Su Ae, Kim Rae-won, Kim Min-hee, Lee Yo-won, Kim Nam-gil, Choi Kang-hee, Bae Doona, Jae Hee … the list goes on and on. The remake will be helmed by PDs Lee Min-hong (of School’s first season and Hometown Legends) and Lee Eung-bok (of Dream High 1 and 2), and the writers of Night Hospital.

The big question is the ensemble cast they’ll gather, and if the revamp will mana

ge to feel fresh and interesting. It’s a little hard to tell if the loose concept of the original — high school students having high school problems — will hit audiences the same way, but I can definitely see something that’s more episodic in structure work out, if the writing is compelling throughout.

School is slated to air on Monday-Tuesday on KBS, following Oohlala Spouses.

And when you smileThe whole world stops and stares for awhile'Cause girl, you're amazingJust the way you are
Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let meHer laugh her laugh, she hates but I think it's so sexyShe's so beautifulAnd I tell her everyday
Oh, you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to changeIf perfect's what you're searching for, then just stay the sameSo don't even bother asking if you look okayYou know I'll say

Diversity leads to string of roles



At first sight, actress Ha Ji-won seems to have a lot in common with the stubborn and proud woman she played in the SBS TV drama "What Happened in Bali."
"I will never tell you that I love you, because that's my last pride," her character declared.

In reality, Ha is admittedly more fragile and reserved. Her only stubbornness is in her dream: "Becoming an actress who can suck the audiences into the screen."

"I envy and admire people who can always say their thoughts out loud. I tend to hide my own feelings and try to avoid arguments," said Ha with a shy smile. "I can be firm and strong only when it comes to work. I guess I was born to be an actress."

Since her debut in the teenage TV drama "School 2" in 1999, Ha has been on an acting marathon without a break.


Actress Ha Ji-won

Sometimes as bouncy and lively as the sexy aerobics performer in the movie "Sex is Zero" and sometimes serious and full of sorrow as the Joseon Dynasty policewoman she portrayed in the TV drama "Damo," Ha has tackled a multitude of roles, sallying between movies and dramas.

In her latest movie "Love, So Divine," Ha played a perky woman who falls in love with a priest-to-be. She is now working on the movie "Daddy-long-legs," based on a well-known book by the same name.

"I am also preparing for my next movie 'The Police Inspector,' which is based on last year's TV drama 'Damo.' While taking acting lessons that includes vocalization and physical exercises, I am realizing that acting is much more difficult than I had thought," said Ha.

The 26-year-old actress hates her conservatism. "Sometimes my conservatism works as a barrier," she said.

However, it also seems to provide motivation, pushing the actress to hone and elevate her craft.

"My motto is to become an honest person," the 'conservative woman' said. She explained that in order to make audiences sympathize with her characters, she must act honestly.

"What I mean by that is 'acting' and 'pretending' are totally different. When I pretend to be sad, I can never make the audiences cry with me. But when I become the character that I am acting and cry for real, the audiences cry with me."

With almond-shaped eyes, long eye lashes, a sharp nose and sturdy lips on an oval face, Ha Ji-won is striking. But her allure comes from her aura, not her beauty.

"I have never thought of myself as a pretty person. But now that I think about it, that was another factor which made me work harder," Ha said. "Everywhere I looked, there were actresses a hundred times prettier than I was. I realized that in order to survive among them, my acting had to perfect."

Ha recalled the time she first stepped into the world of entertainment as the most difficult moment of her five-year acting career.

"Although I worked harder preparing for the debut, it was after the debut that was really difficult. I am usually slow at adjusting to changes. Everything seemed so strange to me that I used to get hurt over nothing then," said Ha.

"But once I do get used to something, I rarely give up. Now that I have adjusted to this career, I plan to give my best and never give up easily."

Ha is also a sportswoman who enjoys various sports such as golf and horseback riding. "Other than acting skills, I think it's important for actors to improve their body strength. Also, when you learn sports, it sometimes helps in playing the roles you land upon."

Since Ha already could ride horses, she was able to spend time on polishing her acting while others took riding lessons for "Damo."

"By the time I am 40, I can see myself as a housewife with a wonderful husband and kids," Ha said. "As much as I love my work, I can never say that I will be an actress for the rest of my life. That could be a lie because one can never tell what will happen in the future."

Ha hopes to open a nursery or an orphanage. "I come from a family with two sisters and a brother. My dad especially loves kids, and I do too."

"Lee Myong-se, the director of 'The Police Inspector' told me that my acting was rough. He said that I had strength in acting due to the roughness, the strength that can grab people's attention at first try.

"I plan to polish up the roughness while maintaining the strength," Ha said.

Ha's humble words and shy smiles seemed to prove that her good acting skills come from natural talent as well as hard work.

The glitter in Ha's eyes seemed to say, "You just watch and see. Not long from now, I will be acting so honestly that you will cry with me when I cry and laugh with me when I laugh."

Actress Ha Ji Won recently showed off a goddess look in chic outdoor clothes.

Working for the outdoor clothing brand Northcape as a model, she recently did a photo shoot for the 2012 winter catalog.

In the pictorial, Ha is suggesting chic outdoor clothes that are practical and easy to wear for women between the age of 25 and 35.

Kim Young Man, the Outdoor Department head of Northcape, says, “Because of Ha Ji Won’s healthy image and nice figure, Northcape’s brand concept is delivered well to customers. We hope she can continuously play an important role in promoting Northcape’s brand image through various work.”
