Jeon Do-yeon confirms The Good Wife remake, Yoo Ji-tae considers

by javabeans | February 18, 2016 | 6 Comments
 

yjt_129.jpg

They did it, they actually did it—tvN has lured Jeon Do-yeon (The Shameless, Secret Sunshine, Harmonium in My Memory) back to television! What a major get.

Talk first emerged late last year that Jeon was in talks to star in the remake of the much-acclaimed American TV series The Good Wife, and after over a decade exclusively working in film, Jeon has confirmed that she will be headlining the show, taking the role originated by Juliana Margulies.

Moreover, Yoo Ji-tae (Healer, The Tenor—Lirico Spinto, Oldboy) is considering the role of her husband, the disgraced state attorney who gets sent to prison following a public sex scandal, propelling the main character to return to her former career as lawyer to support her family. In this version, his character would be a prosecutor with the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office. Perhaps he’s a little young for the character (he’s 39, Jeon is 43), but Yoo has a wonderful gravitas and somberness to his acting, so I don’t worry that he isn’t up for it. They’re both fabulous actors individually, and now I’m excited to see them together.

Directing is PD Lee Jung-hyo of dark noir series Heartless City and bright rom-com Witch’s Romance; writing is Spy’s Han Sung-woon. The Good Wife has secured a Monday-Tuesday timeslot on tvN, to follow mystery-romance Oh Hae-young Again, which in turn follows hostage-negotiator-thriller Pied Piper. It premieres in July.

I am very excited for this remake. I really enjoy watching the American series for 7 seasons now and I am curious how the Korean version will be.  I know that Jeon Do yeon is a big star in Korea, I heard only praises about her so I am looking forward to see her on screen. I am sure Yoo Ji Tae will sign for this drama too.

Saw the  movie trailer as Showbiz Korea did a lengthy piece about the movie and lead star couple of weeks ago. After seeing the  trailer, I thought  she can do Bridges of Madison County type of kdrama adaptation if there is one.  But her as the Good Wife, that is good too. Though I'm not familiar with the stars.  PD is the one who did Heartless City which I love so I'll check this one. Thanks for the thread.

The Good Wife (US) is a hard one to live up to. But with JDY, and if also with YJT, I'm sure they'll do well, if not better. Different flavors I would say. So looking forward to this drama. The plot sounds really good too.

Bridges of Madison County, haha! guess what? JDY happens to be in an upcoming kmovie "One Man & One Woman' in a forbidden love, kinda like 'Bridges' but in snow country instead. Her co-star?  Hot Gong Yoo...who I hope will come back to another kdrama soon.

Definitely checking this 'good wife' out :P

Actress Jeon Do-yeon returns to soap opera scene with 'The Good Wife'

SEOUL, Feb. 24 (Yonhap) -- South Korean actress Jeon Do-yeon will make a TV comeback as the leading woman in "The Good Wife," her agency said Wednesday.

The upcoming tvN drama will be her first soap opera role in 11 years, Management Soop said.

In the South Korean remake of the popular American series of the same name, Jeon will play Hyekyeong, a housewife who resumes her career as a defense attorney after her husband lands in prison on corruption charges.

"I'd been wanting to get out of my comfort zone when they asked me to be on it," Jeon was quoted as saying. "I'm both excited and worried about being in a soap opera after more than 10 years. I'm going to have to work hard."

Jeon will portray the emotional turmoil experienced by a woman after her husband betrays and publicly humiliates her, the agency said.

The Korean series premieres at the end of June.

photo693477.jpg

Actress Jeon Do-yeon is starring in the tvN drama "The Good Wife". This makes the entry to cable dramas along with Kim Hye-soo and Ko Hyeon-jeong complete. The ego battle between the 'big girls' starts now.

From Kim Hye-soo in "Signal", Ko Hyeon-jeong in "Dear My Friends" and Jeon Do-yeon in "The Good Wife", they are all top actresses who have won Best Actress in different award ceremonies. They are competing at what they do best, acting.

First, Kim Hye-soo is starring in the tvN drama "Signal". She took home the grand prize in 2013 for the KBS 2TV drama "The Queen of Office" and this time she's back with a cable drama. "Signal" revolves around a unique subject of 'radio message from the past'. Detectives in the present time go ahead and solve cases with the help of this radio signal. Currently the viewing percentage is in the 10s.

Kim Hye-soo takes on the role of Cha Soo-hyeon, a detective and her first attempt at a cable drama can be said to be successful.

Ko Hyeon-jeong is coming back in May with "Dear My Friends" which is written by hit-maker Noh Hee-kyeong. The quality of the drama is trustable.

"Dear My Friends" is the life story of twilight youths starring Ko Hyeon-jeong, Ko Doo-sim, Nah Moon-hee, Yoon Yeo-jeong, Kim Hye-ja, Kim Yeong-ok, Park Won-sook and Joo Hyeon. There are special appearances by the younger generation such as Lee Gwang-soo, Jo In-Seong and Seong Dong-il.

Jeon Do-yeon is coming back for the first time in 11 years with a drama. "The Good Wife" is an American original about a wife whose successful investigator husband is booked for corruption and sets out to become the breadwinner of the family for the first time in 15 years.

Jeon Do-yeon's "The Good Wife" will be on air after "Cheese in the Trap" and "Pied Piper".

@jadecloud ohmigosh  actually it was what came in to my mind when I saw the trailer like it's kinda "Bridges"  hence I thought about it. I like that trailer too bad not able to watch the movie. I hope it gets sub  and shown on either Viki or DF.

From the article posted  above

"From Kim Hye-soo in "Signal", Ko Hyeon-jeong in "Dear My Friends" and Jeon Do-yeon in "The Good Wife", they are all top actresses who have won Best Actress in different award ceremonies. They are competing at what they do best, acting. "

Are these 3 actresses rivals? Just curious. I'm not familiar with any of them or their dramas. I'm watching Signal but I'm also going to watch the two other dramas. Who's got the edge though, I wonder.   How about Son Ye Jin should do a comeback too, probably? At least I'm familiar with her and like her. (off topic..sorry)

Award-winning actress Jeon Do-yeon, who has been more active on the big screen lately, is making a return to television after a decade-long absence.

Jeon’s agency announced yesterday that she has been cast for the tvN drama “The Good Wife.” 

Her last drama was “Lovers in Prague” (2005) on SBS.

A legal and political drama, “The Good Wife” is a remake of a U.S. TV series of the same title.

The actress will be playing Hye-kyung, a housewife who, due to her husband’s incarceration for sex and political scandals, returns to her old job as a litigator 15 years after she ceased working. 

Speaking on her new role, Jeon said, “I always wanted to widen my array of choices. It’s been almost 10 years since the last time I was part of a drama. I am excited and a bit anxious at the same time,” 

“The Good Wife” is scheduled to start airing at the end of June.

I am so excited because of this pairing...   And Yoo Ji-Tae to play an antagonist?!

I have not watched the American version... I just checked and it is not on streaming at NF.. Too ba

 

I am very curious how this version will be. I am a fan of the original series. I am still watching every week (they are at season 7).

In American version, the husband doesn`t have a big role. He is not a serial regular...

I think they took the concept/ the idea but they will make a new story for this adaptation. Either way, it will be interesting.

It will be my first Korean adaptation drama after a popular series. I don`t know what to expect. I would like a new story for  this kdrama even if they will start from the same setup.

Yoon Kye-sang up for tvN remake of The Good Wife

by girlfriday | March 23, 2016 | 1 Comment
 

YoonKyeSang1.jpg

My my, they just keep lining up good actors for this project. Though I guess once you score A-list film actress Jeon Do-yeon (The Shameless, Secret Sunshine) to headline your drama, you’d be crazy not to give her charismatic co-stars to work with. The Korean remake of the critically-acclaimed American television series The Good Wife has confirmed Jeon for the main role, as well as Yoo Ji-tae (Healer) to play her husband; now Yoon Kye-sang (Last, Full Sun) is being courted to play her main love interest.

 

The Emmy-award-winning series is currently airing its seventh and final season on CBS, and stars Julianna Margulies as the wife of a disgraced state’s attorney who is sent to prison for political corruption involving a sex scandal. She goes back to work as a lawyer after spending 13 years as a stay-at-home mother of two kids, and the drama is about her rediscovering her professional and personal life.

Yoon Kye-Sang has been offered a co-lead role in upcoming tvN drama series “The Good Wife” also starring Jeon Do-Yeon and Yoo Ji-Tae.

Ohh is he going to be the Korean William Gardner? Oh no, I already want to ship the two already. I wonder how much of the American story will be incorporated into this remake. There's a lot of content to go with, and not all the themes would be appropriate for the target audience, but I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
