Opening title:

June 2010

The story starts on a certain day sixty years ago....

Kim Soo Yeon: (KHN)

No matter what, you must live

I'll wait till you return

I'll believe till the end

Even if the whole world believes you are dead

You'll return to my side....

"There's a reason to continue living

But, there's no reason to die"

Lee Jang Woo: (SJS)

No matter what, for the sake of the company

Even if I were to sacrifice my life

Up till now

I can't let go of Soo Yeon

Has my love changed?

SJS's interview for Road No. 1:


http://dw4ptommyrot.wordpress.com/2010/04/...no-1/#more-2210 via My daily


Is it June yet? The highly anticipated Korean War drama, Road No. 1 is almost two months away but the media hype is starting already. Lead actor, So Ji Sub recently had his interview about the drama and has me salivating at just seeing his name. And my heart goes thump every time I see a glimpse of his sad, beautiful eyes gracing my computer screen. (I haven't been that impressed with the posters, but more on that when I do a preview for the drama.)

To be honest, Chun Jung Myung has been slowly creeping his way into my heart recently as he conjures up love songs in my ears every time he comes on screen during Cinderella's Sister. But reading about the drama and listening to the MiSa soundtrack has me swooning over my love So Ji Sub once again.

So Ji Sub interview after jump:

Q: You're the lead for a program celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Korean War. When you received the call to be in the drama, how did you feel and what made you accept the role?

  • I did feel a little anxious taking on a huge project that would portray the pain of the war and the [country's] history. But I really enjoyed reading the script, down to the last sentence of all 16 episodes. And on a personal level, it was a new genre for me and I thought it would be difficult to receive a project like this in the future. As we continued filming, I became more confident each day that I made the right decision. I'm enjoying the experience even though it's physically tiring.

Q: Recent dramas have a tendency to favor soft male characters, while you're known to play strong male characters. Lee Jang Woo has been described as someone who deals with the various difficulties of life in a myriad of ways. What kind of a character is he?

  • Lee Jang Woo is someone who accepts the yoke of a person's life, but is able to develop a path for himself at the same time. Due to the Korean War, he has to experience a heartbreaking love and needs to use all his might to withstand the difficulties of the war. He's a devoted man who deals with life and death in battle, while agonizing over his love and his friendship.

Q: Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, Full Metal Jacket, Thin Red Line, Taegeukgi have all received acclaim as war dramas. Are there any stories or characters that have left a strong impression on you?

I haven't seen all of these project but I'm sure that Lee Jang Woo from my current project will leave the most lasting impression on me. All of these projects were made to have the viewer experience war, but it doesn't compare to actually being part of the filming and experiencing it personally. And Lee Jang Woo is a character that I want to keep in my heart for a long time.

Q: Young people from this generation see war as something from a far away land. In that sense, the drama about the 6.25 war is an important project. Have you spoken with any elders or family members who experienced the war firsthand?

  • I wasn't able to do that… but I was exposed to a lot of photos and research materials from the directors while preparing for the project. I was surprised to see such horrific scenes on our own soil 60 years ago. After seeing the pictures, I promised myself to do a better job on the project. Since a drama is a window into that era, I remember the staff working to perfect the march route between the north and south and paying close attention to the details of the military uniform.

Q: Being on set, it looked like even the staff suffered from the bitter cold. Wasn't last winter so cold that it was difficult to be fully immersed in your acting? What was your secret to enduring the cold?

  • There's nothing more I can add to, "It was really cold." We tried to come up with lots of ideas to avoid the cold but there wasn't much else to do except wait for the cold weather to end. There were times when I didn't feel like my legs were my own.

Q: What did the two directors, Lee Jang Soo and Kim Jin Min, want from you?

  • Both directors said the same thing: Be true to your feelings at every moment. Since this isn't something that a person actually experienced in real life, they stressed the importance of acting realistically and this was something I tried to do. They also said to show a different side, so much so that people would say, "So Ji Sub also had this side to him." Personally, this is something that I selfishly want in my acting, so I always do projects with this in mind.

Q: People have said that you look good in uniform. As someone who enjoys fashion, were you satisfied with your appearance?

  • I'm not sure if I look good in uniform, but I now feel the most comfortable with it on. (Laughter) I'm always in uniform besides Sundays. I've even laughed to myself after thinking that regular clothes seem awkward and uncomfortable.

Q: What do you want to say to the viewers?

  • I thought about this for awhile. How to ask you to watch the program since it's a great project. Thinking about the drama, Road No. 1, I've realized what a blessing it is for me to be a part of this project. I'm looking forward to meeting the viewers with such a warm and interesting drama. I want to share the blessing I've received with the viewers of the drama. Hope you're looking forward to it. Thank you.

PD Lee Jang Soo has praised Yoon Kye Sang's performance in MBC's upcoming war epic, Road No. 1. During the casting stage of the drama, PD Lee was looking for an actor to project a strong yet gentle man in Shin Tae Ho. When he first met actor Yoon Kye Sang, PD Lee felt he exuded the right verve. With more than 90% of the filming done, PD Lee is more than satisfied with YKS's performance and warns viewers of the complete transformation in the actor.




Hey coco, not sure if you've uploaded these before :huh: Thought I'll share them.... :)

Here's the chinese translation of the mydaily article on YKS posted earlier:

via YKS's bar at tieba baidu

腾讯娱乐讯 韩国演员尹启相MBC新剧《Road No.1》中变身引起了观众的热切关注。

尹启相平时给人一种活泼的形象,但是在这部剧 中,他给我们展现了一个大男人的魅力。尹启相在电视剧《Road No.1》中饰演一名陆军出身的军官太浩。在剧中,太浩对秀妍(金荷娜饰演)一见钟情,两人甚至已经订婚。但是后来振宇(苏志燮饰演)的出现,让他对这段 感情产生了怀疑。但是他不会轻易地放弃这段感情,给我们展现了一个热血男儿的形象。

《Road No.1》的导演说:太浩这个角色很难演,既要显得温柔,又要拿出热血男儿的本色。但是当初我第一眼看见尹启相,就觉得他非常适合这个角色。而且在拍摄的 过程中,我们对他的表现也非常满意。另外,该剧的其他演员也说:我们通过这部电视剧又重新认识了尹启相,真是大开眼界。

据悉,尹启相就连休息时间也不忘练习剧本,表现了自己对这部电视剧的热爱。《Road No.1》以朝鲜战争背景,讲述了一个爱情友情夹杂的动人故事。现在已经拍完了80%,将于6月23日首播。

Just the major news points: (All translation mistakes are mine)

YKS's transformation in MBC's upcoming series, Road No. 1, will be an eye-opener for many viewers and fans alike. To date, YKS has projected a cheerful image but in the new Korean War melodrama, he will be transformed into a real man.

PD for the series remarked that YKS's role is a challenging one. Not only must YKS show a gentle side, on the other hand, he must show he is a man of steel. Other actors involved in the production commented YKS was a revelation in the show, displaying a side rarely seen by others. Insiders also pointed out YKS's passion for the drama: He was glued to the script, studying it seriously even during his break in between filming.

Hey folks, here's more on the LSW and KSY date:

via SJS's bar @tieba baidu


以情侣身份出演MBC电视台的新水木电视剧《Road No. 1》的苏志燮和金荷娜在电视剧中甜美的约会照片公开。公开的这张照片是在韩国朝鲜战争开始后,分别已久的两人再次相聚的背景下拍摄的。

电 视剧制作方表示,金荷娜将在这部电视剧中,从开爱的形象开始到后来越来越成熟,演绎悲痛难言的感情戏,演技上将会有很大的突破。同时,苏志燮在之前作品中 浪漫的演技 中更加进一步,将演绎只专注一个女孩,那种纯情炙热的爱情。这部以韩国战争为背景的《Road No. 1 》将于6月23日首播。【TVDAILY=金镇景记者】

Apparently, it is the first meeting between LSW and KSY after a long since the onset of war. According to a production rep, actress Kim Ha-neul will showcase a breakthrough in her acting range in the show by protraying a bright and carefree character at the start to one tormented by immense pain at the later stages. SJS's acting has also improved tremendously in the drama, depicting a man devoted singularly to one woman with a love so pure and passionate.


And from Han cinema:





Drama Road Number 1" stars So Ji-sub and Kim Ha-neul.

The new drama has So as Jangsoo and Kim as Suyun where they are filming a dating scene.

The two are in a drama set on the 6.25 Korean War. The two main characters have been away from each other because of the war and have united again for a date in Busan open market!

Two stars have been in a model shoot before however this is their first time working together in a drama.

"Road Number 1" shows the two characters sharing happy yet longing, sad, and melodramatic scenes.

This drama also stars Yoon Kye-sang, Choi Min-soo, and Son Chang-min. First episode is on June 23rd.


The production news conference will be held on 18 June.....more picture galore awaits! B)

War dramas are not my cup of tea... but I might give this one a chance because of So Ji Sub. I think he makes a good pair with Kim Ha Neul. I am also a fan of Choi Min Soo, so I'm wondering what character he will play. I'm okay with it being depressing, but I'm just hoping that this drama doesn't drag.

Hey coco, thank you so much for the youtube link to the fourth trailer with the dating scene :)

Today's news spotlight is on actor Son Chang Min, with the release of more stills from the drama:







(Article's auto translated. All mistakes are mine)

"Road No. 1" marks the return of actor Son Chang Min to the small screen after a two year hiatus. Last seen in MBC's "Woman of matchless beauty, Park Jung Kum", SCM has to date played largely likable and friendly characters. In MBC's upcoming Korean War drama, viewers will see a completely transformed SCM who plays a brutal and inhumane villian. Specifically, he will make life very difficult for SJS's character, Lee Jang Woo.





**Edit** (3)

More BTS...






On a completely different note...... :)

Actress Kim Ha-neul has updated her facebook with this:



KHN's bar @tieba baidu

It looks like in between shoots, she's busily reading "The Kite Runner" for inspiration I suppose for bringing to life her character in "Road No. 1".

If you haven't already read it, do grab a copy and read it. You will not regret starting on this remarkable journey. I have not seen the movie adaptation of the book, but when I read the book years back, I cried buckets - moved by the simple prose and weep for the depravity of man.
