The story is about a typical Korean man and a Japanese woman who fall in love while working together on a Korea-Japan joint project, but face family opposition to their marriage. Hyunhaetan is the name of the strait between Japan and Korea; hence the title, which is a metaphor for the couple’s struggles.

Im Joo-hwan and Rie in MBC special drama

January 27th, 2010 // by javabeans


Tamra the Island’s Im Joo-hwan has a drama series coming up (campus series What’s Up), but first he’ll be seen in an MBC special drama called Hyunhaetan Marriage War [현해탄 결혼전쟁]. He’ll star with Rie (full name Akiba Rie), a Misuda (Global Talk Show) panelist from Japan.

The story is about a typical Korean man and a Japanese woman who fall in love while working together on a Korea-Japan joint project, but face family opposition to their marriage. Hyunhaetan is the name of the strait between Japan and Korea; hence the title, which is a metaphor for the couple’s struggles.

Im plays the son to Baek Il-sub (cuddly Papa Song of Sol Pharmacy). Rie takes the role of a graduate student in biology, and is Im’s laboratory sunbae. They fall in love as they work on their collaborative project, but both fathers put up strong opposition. (Rie’s father will be played by Hakuryu, a veteran Japanese actor who has appeared in several Korean projects, such as IRIS, Insadong Scandal, and The Good, The Bad, The Weird.) Despite the couple’s obstacles, they press on and marry anyway.

This sounds similar to another drama, 2004’s Friends (not to be confused with the movie Friend or its spinoff drama Friend, Our Legend). The four-episode Friends had a similar Korean man/Japanese woman romance between Won Bin and Fukada Kyoko (who made a gorgeous couple). I liked it, although it was a lightweight; it had the opportunity to be meaningful but just played around on the surface and was therefore a rather shallow affair, though pleasant to look at. (In it, the two meet over a brief weekend in Hong Kong, then keep in touch as penpals when they return to their respective countries. They continue with their own lives but the connection remains strong, but he comes from a particularly traditional Korean family that wants him to marry a nice Korean girl. Over the years, she learns Korean and gets a job that brings her to Korea, where they meet again. Hm. I should really write Friends up one of these days.)

In any case: Hyunhaetan Marriage War held its script reading on January 22, and began shooting on January 24. The production will film in Seoul, Busan, and Fukuoka. It airs on MBC on March 1 and 2.

Im Joo-hwan’s Marriage War

February 25th, 2010 // by javabeans


If you’ll recall, there’s a short (two-episode) special drama starring Im Joo-hwan that is set to air soon, which will precede his full-length drama role in the upcoming What’s Up. It had previously been titled Hyunhaetan Marriage War, where “Hyunhaetan” refers to the strait between Korea and Japan and is a metaphor for the plot that has a Korean man (Im) marrying a Japanese woman (Rie). The drama is set to air over the weekend, but now has a new name: Marriage War of Doenjang-gun and Natto-jjang. Doenjang is the Korean word for fermented bean paste, while natto is a similar Japanese type of bean paste (they’re not exactly the same food, but the analogy is clear).

Im Joo-hwan said, “It’s a great honor to participate in a drama with such meaning, with which I can greet both Korean and Japanese fans at the same time.” He plays a bright and cheerful character, in contrast to the curt Park Kyu of his breakout role, last year’s Tamra the Island. He also had to speak in the saturi dialect (his character is from Busan, in the south), which he found awkward at first but was helped along by the director and older actors on set.

The drama is a romantic comedy that is described as a sweet love story that is both “warm and enjoyable,” and will air on February 27 and 28 on MBC. What’s Up, meanwhile, will air later this summer.
