This story that also had been passed down on her talents as a painter. There was a lady who spilt some tea on her silk skirt & soils it in which the skirt was said to be borrowed & was too expensive for her to replace the skirt as it was silk. Shin who was nearby learns of the woman's plight & decided to render her some help

Shin took the skirt & constructed a beautiful painting of leaves & grapes that her painting on the skirt attracted eager buyers at the nearby market & the lady was able to replace the skirt & even buy her a skirt of her own from the sale of the "painted" skirt. The lady tries to pay Shin for her gratitude but she kindly declines & asked the lady to use the money for her daily needs

What an inspiring story!!

Thank you so much, @gerrytan8063  You are always so kind.

Please share with us the legend of Shin Saimdang that you have in your pocket each time you come to this thread. I believe the members here will appreciate it. I do for sure.

Together with the famous leading actress, Lee Young-ae, it is no wonder this drama has already been sold even before the filming started.

 

Well, now I have another item added to my shopping list, a story book of Shin Saimdang.

Quoted:  @irilight
 

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".

Ouuu, Song Seung Heon's back! I think I'm more excited that both Ko Soo and Song Seung Heon are back on the small screens than the actual dramas that they will be, are doing! I'll have to wait until the dramas air to see if the storylines will suck me in! Nonetheless, it feels great to see him back!

Hallyu star's beauty photo book

Hallyu star's beauty photo book

Seen above is one of the photos of South Korean actress Lee Young-ae published by local magazine JLook in its February edition. Lee remains a top celebrity of "hallyu," or Korean pop culture, after rising to her starring role in the 2004 megahit drama "Daejanggeum" that gained Asia-wide fame. Lee, who does not make many public appearances, is coming back after a 10-year hiatus from marriage and rearing twins in the new drama "Saimdang, the Herstory," which will air simultaneously in South Korea and China in the second half of this year.

@irilight  Thank you for the info on the replica. I would really love to see her paintings. I'd like to confirm with my own eyes that if I were a chicken, would I see my food ( insects ) on it?  And other living things as well such as birds, flowers, fruits, frogs etc...

All in all, I'm so looking forward to this drama.

Hello, @irilight! I don't think I have ever seen Lee Young Ae in anything! I went through her dramas and movies, nope, haven't watch any of hers! If I do watch this drama, it will be my first time seeing her act! Unbelievable, huh!

I recommend you watch her, if you can make the time, @ymiss, chingu.  I loved her in Dae Jang Geum (aka A Jewel in the Palace) drama, (which is from the same director who is going to helm "A Flower in Prison.".   @gerrytan8063 commented on the other thread that this director takes a segment/a bureau and focuses on it; that is why they talked in the upcoming drama about similarity to Dae Jang Geum.)

I think her other drama are not easy to come by. I was lucky to see Medical Brothers when it was still on Crunchyroll. I still hope Viki will find the subs for it, or re-sub it. Also "Firework" with Cha In-Pyo is available on YT, but only with Japanese sub.

I highly recommend two of her movies by director Park Chan-Wook.   "Joint Security Area" and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" - both a masterpiece of Korean cinema.   I also saw her in "Last Present" with Lee Jung-Jae, but that one is more difficult to find.
