Wt freak? why would Virvir111 get banned??

she was a great help with uploading news about

this drama. :<

I hope things get better

I'm glad Kamio Yoko visited the Korean casts and production

crew.

that tells a lot about something.

She's such a good artist!!!! and yeah the casts do resemble the

manga characters.

I didn't read the manga or anything, I only saw the drawings.

And when they were casting Korean actors, I noticed that they

were accurate on the looks.

Ok, i am no vivir, and I am not THAT good in korean.... but i thought it was better than nothing. So this is the basic gist of what the actors are saying.

Q: You look very handsome today

Kim Hyun Joong: Yes, Thanks to this drama, I got to wear some fancy clothes and ride in fancy cars

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

(About the hung scene between KHJ and HCY)

Han Chae Young: Earlier, I heard girls screaming when I hugged him. They must have been KHJ fans, so I apologize. There is a big age difference, so I'm sure they'll understand

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

(scene from the press conference)

Kim Hyun Joong: In HCY's case, they call her a human barbie doll, So it felt very good to acting with a barbie doll

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What's your relationship with KHJ?

Lee Min Ho: Well, they've been friends from childhood, so they're best friends. They have sort of a rival relationship as well, but they are still good friends.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What are you like in real life? Are you also a flirt?

Kim Bum: No, in that way we are different...i believe

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are you two a lot closer now?

Both: Yes.

KB: We-

KJ: But it's awkward

KB: No no, it's not awkward... we went overseas for the beginning of the shooting, and we would shoot and sleep, and i think that's when we got pretty close.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I hear that it's your first time acting

KJ: It's diffictult because it's my first time acting and they gave me too big of a part, but i guess i have a lot to learn. I'm learning more and more as we go.

Wonder women, eye candy herald TV's New Year

State-run broadcaster KBS is greeting the New Year with not one but two dramas: a remake of the iconic classic "Boys over Flowers" and the epic "Iron Empress."

Historical romance "Iron Empress" hatches its 80-episode-long tale tomorrow night, spicing up the Goryeo Dynasty with the bloody escapades of a warrior woman played by veteran actress Chae Si-ra.

Chae, the feline beauty who enchanted and frightened audiences in KBS' "Sea God (2004)," reprises her role as a ruthless Amazon in the upcoming drama. "Men have been playing the lead in historical romances," said Chae, 40, at a press conference held on Dec. 19. "Now, I think it is time for women to do so. This drama will show people that there was an awesome and brave female leader during the Goryeo Dynasty."

Fearsome would be a more accurate description of the heroine, who is aptly called the Iron Empress. The fourth wife of Goryeo Dynasty founder Taejo Wang Kon, the empress ruled as the regent for her son Mok Jong, the dynasty's seventh ruler.

Determined to realize her ambitious goals for the kingdom of Goryeo, she dons armor, battles against foreign invaders, and tramples her lover, her son and brother in her rise to power. The audience is invited to watch her transform into a cold-hearted warrior.

"Every year we do a big scale drama," said Senior Producer/Director of KBS Drama Team 2 Choi Jee-yeong, 39. "It represents KBS. Last year we did 'King Sejong.' Usually we cover the Joseon Dynasty, but this one looks into the Goryeo Dynasty."

Highlighting the gory reign of an empress, endowing her with a warrior's skills and the brain of a brilliant politician, KBS' big scale drama sets the tone for 2009.

The conniving queen no longer serves as the villainess of the period piece, but takes center stage. Hamlet is relegated to the corner and Gertrude gets the limelight.

The maneuver compels female audiences to tune into a hitherto male-dominated genre. And as if in response to some divine plan, KBS is also giving women some serious eye candy with its new Monday and Tuesday night drama "Boys over Flowers."

Based on the hit comic series of the same name, many would agree that "Boys" derives its popularity from F4; or four good-looking and wealthy male characters. The first TV drama version, produced in Taiwan, catapulted the four leading actors to fame. It was followed by the Japanese TV version, which also garnered success. And now, KBS looks set to hit yet another homerun with the perennial favorite.

"Boys" director Jun Ki-sang has a track record for popular yet hackneyed dramas like KBS' "Delightful Girl Choon-hyang (2005)" and SBS' "My Girl (2006)," making him a perfect fit for the lighthearted comic book fantasy. "The production company and the original comic book publisher requested that we make this drama as close to the original as possible," said director Jun in a press conference on Dec. 22.

"At first I rejected the offer to direct because it has already been produced in other countries. But when the offer came again and they said that the expectations of Koreans were different. I felt that there were challenges to be met."

A sort of "Pride and Prejudice" for Asian audiences, the surefire story of a poor girl, her rich suitor and her three knights need not rely on the potentially diverse expectations of a nation's audience to ensure its success. In the words of production company Group Eight's "Boys over Flowers" project manager Bae Jong-byung: "I think people will watch it because it is a well-written and fun story. It will do well as a remake."

The key, however, lies in the charm of its four leading actors and the pluck of its solitary heroine. All four male leads bear an uncanny resemblance to their comic book counterparts, which could be, in part, due to the extensive auditioning process they underwent.

Leader of the boy band SS501 Kim Hyun-joong stands out as Hanazawa Rui, called Yoon Ji-hoo in the Korean version. His sweet and quirky antics in the hit MBC reality show "We Got Married (2008)" have already made him something of a celebrity, and his role as the introverted, aloof yet cavalier Rui promises to attract more female fans.

"When we did the kiss scene, I was very nervous," said Kim Hyun-joong, 22, referring to his scene with Koo Hye-sun, who plays the heroine. "Koo Hye-sun said, 'Just do it.' We finished filming after 10 takes." "10 kisses," he iterated with a grin.

Actress Koo Hye-sun, smiled when asked about the 10-kiss scene, before stating: "There were technical issues." "My character could be a target for envy because she becomes a Cinderella in an instant. I think it would be best to live vicariously through her."

Koo, who gained popularity as the lead in the period drama "The King and I (2007)," is taking on the role of Makino Tsukushi -- called Geum Jan-di in the Korean version. The heroine is first pestered and ostracized by four of the most popular boys at her school before winning them over with her pluck and strength.

Actor Lee Min-ho will be playing Koo's love interest, Domyoji Tsukasa, called Goo Joon-pyo in the Korean version. Actor Kim Bum and rapper Kim Joon will be playing the remaining two male leads. "Boys" airs its first episode on Monday on KBS 2 TV at 9:55 p.m.

"Iron Empress" starts airing tomorrow night on KBS 2 TV at 10:15 p.m.

hm...just watched 7 minute trailer...it makes me feel that goo hyesun is not right for the part...she's too cute/pretty and she kind of exaggerates...in like a bad way. and i don't like how she's always dressed so nicely! i didn't read the manga so i dono if that's how the girl dressed in the manga. but i guess i won't kno for sure if goo hyesun fits or not until i watch the actual drama...kim bum is doing a surprisingly good job at being the player! hahaha. Junpyo's hair does look a bit... odd... HyunJoong is doing well. I think the 3 mean girls are good...

eh..didn't like trailer too much. seems like the people are trying too hard. like the people making the drama, i mean. but whatever. still want to give it a chance :]

don't take what i say too seriously cuz it's what i'm getting from the trailer. now the drama..i must wait and see :]

my opinions may be more positive after i watch the drama itself. i hope so >.<

^ i agree, GHS's too pretty and she kind of goes over the top with her 'cute'ness. i reckon the japanese makino was just right.

and certainly looks like they did spend a lot on it. i guess they have high expectations to live up to.

everything looks so grand and big. i hope all the money they spent on it pays off :]

"At first I rejected the offer to direct because it has already been produced in other countries. But when the offer came again and they said that the expectations of Koreans were different. I felt that there were challenges to be met."

This version is made for a Korean audience.... and how GHS portrays her character is similar to what Koreans think of as cute/tough. It's obvious that there are making the show in that idea, because afterall it is the korean tv viewers that can make this a success.

Basically the same reason why shows like Coffee Prince or Goong became such hits, because the heroine is supposed to act like that. I would say GHS plays her character in a way that would appeal to those who aren't predisposed into comparing it to the Japanese or Taiwanese versions.

Thank u for writing that, I have been trying to stress that point over and over. Sorry but neither the Japanese or chinese versions would work with the mass Korean audiences.And whoever is expecting copies of the past dramas should not even bother watching it since they will probably end up disappointed. I applaud originality. And also the japan "HYD maniacs" (as some call themselves) are completely exited over the drama and have no complaints.

I saw the 3 teaser trailers, it looks fun. I kind of want to watch it. But at the same time ehh.

Since I didn't read the manga, but I'm curious about this, I mean there is a player character?? interesting :]

i know huh x.x... i think i've written this a few times already in this thread. there's always the newbies who come post in thread complaining how they love the japanese version better etc...

hmm, i think that even the original mangaka (manga artist) loved the korean cast SHOULD speak volumes -- this should be looked on as something that is independent of the japanese and taiwanese versions... because, thats what it is ;D

seizetd - thanks for the new pics! Lee Minho looks so dashing as Joonpyo! I'm so fangirling over him already~

I gave up trying to explain to newbies....I forgot how many times I tried to explain already...anyway, all I can say is one word: The Korean version of HYD has been KOREANIZED for the Korean viewers so for those that just totally love the japanese version and can't imagine the drama being done any other way, please don't watch. Aish, I've written more than I intended to. Oh well. Key word here is Koreanized. LOL
