Thinking of My Older Brother (translated title) featuring IM Si-wan and KO Asung (to be distributed by Next Entertainment World (N.E.W.), produced by Joy Rabbit) has completed shooting and is now ready for post production.
 
Thinking of My Older Brother is LEE Han’s newest film who directed Punch and Thread of Lies that also featured KO Asung. Based on the true story of a children’s choir during the Korean War, this film features a miracle created by one little song, in the midst of the war time where everything is lost. 
 
The first shooting took place on May 18th, and the shooting crew went around the country including the cities of Gyeongju, Chungju, and Samcheok in Gyeongsang, Chungcheong, and Gangwon Provinces for the following 4 months. The 64th shooting, which was the last one, ended with Lieutenant HAN Sang-ryeol who has been traumatized by the war (played by IM) and The Claw (played by LEE Hui-joon) in a duel, the latter viciously intimidating children. IM shows the ways in which Lieutenant overcomes the war time trauma through the interaction with the children's choir, revealing his warm and manly inner self. 
 
It is the first main character played by IM who has previously played in The Attorney. "Including the preparation, I spent the last 6 months with this film," said IM, "I don't exactly feel that it is over yet. Thinking of My Older Brother is a very warm movie. I hope a lot of people can share warm feelings through this film."
 
KO Asung has recently played in Office and a TV drama I heard it from the rumor, and now taken the role of PARK Ju-mi in Thinking of My Older Brother. "I have been very happy working on this film since May, and I can't wait to meet the audience," said KO, "it was such a special experience to work with the little children and I am very happy to be working again with LEE Han."
 
In addition, LEE Hui-joon and LEE Joon-hyeok are also recruited in Thinking of My Older Brother. 
 
Thinking of My Older Brother is invested and distributed by N.E.W. which has co-built a company Huace & N.E.W with Chinese Huace Media group. Thinking of My Older Brother is to be released in the Lunar New Year's Day season in 2016 and it is interesting to see how appealing to the audience this war based true story is.

*** Thanks rubie for sharing more on this news. Netizens are praising Im Si Wan for this good deed. Isn’t it so NICE that rather than holding a FM or party with fans for his birthday, he would be volunteering with fans to help a coal briquette charity to celebrate? I’m proud of him. And spending your own money – that’s not easy to do. Such a difference..... :P

Im Siwan and Byun Yo Han Have a Sweet Birthday Reunion

Actors from the drama “Incomplete Life” had a small reunion recently. Both Im Siwan and Byun Yo Han met up with each other for a small birthday party.

On December 3, Byun Yo Han uploaded a photo he took with Im Siwan on his personal Instagram. The two met up to celebrate Siwan’s belated birthday, which was on December 1. Despite the fact that “Incomplete Life” ended almost a year ago, the two actors seem to be super close with each other.

In the photo, Byun Yo Han is seen clapping in front of the birthday cake with a big smile on his face. Siwan looks touched by his friend’s sweet actions as he stares at Byun Yo Han with a big smile on his face as well.

Meanwhile, Im Siwan is currently preparing to make a comeback with the film, “Oppa’s Thought,” while Byun Yo Han is currently taking part in the drama, “Six Flying Dragons.”

SEOUL, Dec. 7 (Yonhap) - The South Korean office drama "The Incomplete" has won top honors at Asia's most prestigious drama awards, its producer said Monday.

The program -- led by Yim Si-wan, Lee Sung-min and Kang So-ra -- was named Best Drama Series at the 20th Asian Television Awards (ATA) in Singapore last week, tvN, the cable network that produced and aired the show last year, said in a release.

TvN also brought home another prize, Best Game or Quiz Programme, for its reality show "The Genius Game."

   "This is the first time we've entered the awards," said Lee Deok-jae, head of media content at tvN's parent company CJ E&M. "We'll work hard to create even more competitive content."

request
Mydaily - Naver: 'Oppa's Thought', Will Im Siwan be as successful as Yoo Ah In?

1. [+3,318, -129] He's really good at acting

2. [+2,636, -121] It grosses me out when idols act but he's an exception

3. [+1,897, -84] Im Siwan looks handsome in whatever he does

4. [+1,117, -66] Sounds like a fun movie. Im Siwan, fighting

5. [+505, -41] Why compare him to Yoo Ah In?

6. [+392, -28] He's neatly handsome

7. [+342, -34] His acting  in 'The Attorney' was amazing

8. [+279, -27] He doesn't seem like an idol at all. He's more of an actor now

9.[+262, -28] You can trust Im Siwan.

10. [+164, -4] So awkward to call Go Ah Sung the 'representative of actresses in their 20s' ㅋㅋHer middle school image in 'The Host' is still too strong

11. [+195, -25] Really gotta acknowledge his acting talent....
