(November 15, 2013 Hollywood Reporter News Item)

China's DMG Entertainment, co-producer of Iron Man 3, is ramping up its recent push into international TV, partnering with Korea's CJ E&M to develop and produce the romance series Sweet City, starring K-pop star Henry (aka Liu Xianhua) from South Korean boy band, Super Junior. It will be Liu's acting debut.

While DMG is best known for its Hollywood co-productions, Looper and Iron Man 3, along with Chinese hits Founding of a Republic (2009) and Go LaLa Go (2010), the company has been expanding its activity in TV. On Wednesday, the DMG signed an agreement with Washington FilmWorks to develop, produce and shoot a Chinese-language TV drama on location in Seattle for later broadcast by CCTV.

CJ E&M, South Korea’s largest entertainment conglomerate, has several joint venture initiatives underway in China, including cinema construction projects across the country, and co-production of director Park Kwang-hyun's sci-fi fantasy The Fist, with $20 million of investment from China Film Group and Pegasus & Taihe Entertainment.

"We are very excited to be working with the team from CJ. It’s a great opportunity to enhance the close ties between the two countries, while adding a dash of DMG style to the Chinese TV market,” said Wu Bing, DMG president and executive producer of “Sweet City.”

An adaptation of South Korean author Jeong Lee Hyeung's bestselling novel, My Sweet City, the drama series will have built-in appeal for the South Korean market. The first edition of her book sold 250,000 copies and went on to top the country's best-selling lists with a record 65 reprints.

“In order to cater to the tastes of Chinese fans, DMG’s TV development team has revised and updated the story to give it more of a Chinese sensibility,” said Bing.

Henry will play the role of a talented teenager who drops out of school to follow his dreams. DMG says it developed the character’s playful style and attitude to match Henry’s off-screen persona in Super Junior.

The two companies say they hope the project will be the first in a line of collaborations, as they seek to instigate a "new Korean Wave in Chinese TV."

Ah. Thank you. I was confused for a minute. How much filming have they done? I know Henry has had to fly back and forth in between filming due to his obligations with SM like their concerts.

On her weibo blog Zhang Xinyi mentions having filmed 800 scenes already which are now being edited. Supposedly post-production work will be done in South Korea where they have better facilities. A Chinese newspaper mentioned that broadcasts may not begin until May 2014. Two Chinese cable networks, ZJS TV and Dragon TV, are interested in broadcasting this drama in China. The South Korean production company, CJ E&M, is in charge of marketing it to countries outside of China.

The latest production stills show domestic scenes between Zhang Xinyi and Henry Lau and scenes of Zhang Xinyi meeting with Lu Fangsheng. Chinese netizens have been hotly debating whether Zhang Xinyi's character is better off with the older man or with the younger man.
