Lee Young-ae's "comeback" drama "Saimdang, the Herstory" signed broadcast deals

for 6 counties.

 photo618228.jpg

On the 24th, the production company Group8 said "we signed a contract for the rights to broadcast our show "Saimdang, the Herstory" in 6 countries with global media group Turner Entertainment who owns famous networks such as "CNN, Warner TV, Cartoon Network, and the Korean Entertainment Channel Oh!K".

This is garnering a lot of attention as it is rare for a Korean drama's broadcast right to have been sold even before any filming has been done.

"Saimdang, the Herstory" will tell the story of genius painter Saimdang and her immortal love. Lee Young-ae will be playing dual roles as the title character Shin Saimdang and a University lecturer of Korean arts who tries to solve the mystery of an unknown painting via the Shin Saimdang's diary she coincidently finds.

The production company Group8 says "The sale of a drama that has not even started filming shows the unfading popularity of Lee Young-ae".

EXCERPT TRANSLATION:

As LYA rejected reporters' interviews, she said: "It's been a long period of rest as a wife and as a mother. I'm very happy. It's been 4 years since we spent our summers here." And before ending, LYA didn't forget to put in a plug for her upcoming drama 'Shin Saimdang, the Herstory' and said: "Everyone, don't forget to watch it."

Emperor Entertainment Korea -- a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Emperor Group -- will invest a hefty 10 billion won ($8.5 million) for the new Lee Young-ae drama, “Saimdang, the Herstory.”

Its Korean arm EEK, established in 2014, was endowed with 110 billion won ($94 million) to invest in selective Korean entertainment contents, with aims to ride on the hallyu fever across China and Asia.

EEK’s chief Choi Joon-young said, “We will continue to boost killer contents -- our first project had been singer Anda, and the second one is drama “Saimdang.” We are pleased to once again rewrite the history of hallyu, together with the core members of the hallyu fever -- Lee Young-ae and Song Seung-heon.”

“Saimdang, the Herstory” will feature the life of a female cultural icon from Joseon Dynasty who is now the face on 50,000 won bills.
Lee will play the double role of painter-poet Saimdang and a modern day college art instructor. Song will play Saimdang’s artistic soulmate.

The drama is slated for release simultaneously in Korea, China, Japan in early 2016.

Lee Young-ae joins script-reading for ‘Saimdang’

image

Script-reading session photos for the upcoming TV drama “Saimdang” were released Wednesday.

Actress Lee Young-ae, emerging from her long hiatus, participated in the first script-reading session along with 30 or so fellow actors.

“This is my second SBS work since 2000’s ‘Fireworks.’ I will do my best and enjoy,” Lee said.

The celebrated 44-year-old is to play the dual role of a modern day art instructor and painter-poet Shin Saimdang, based on the real figure of the Joseon era.

Twenty-year-old actress Park Hye-soo will play the part of a younger Saimdang.

Multiple award-winner for supporting roles, the reliable actress Kim Hae-sook will play Saimdang’s irritable mother-in-law.

“(Lee) doesn’t seem as if she took any time off from acting,” Kim said, “There are so many people here today that I’m glad to be with.”

Kim said she would take on tough tasks as a senior and see to it that things go smoothly throughout the filming.

In this drama, actor Yoon Da-hoon (Nam Kwang-woo) will play the husband to Saimdang, while the male lead will be actor Song Seung-heon, who harbors unrequited love for Saimdang and empathizes with her in the medium of art.

The TV show is set to be aired this year, with the exact date yet to be determined.
