So Ji Sub might be appearing in a new drama!

On February 24, Korean news outlet Ilgan Sports reported that the actor would be taking a role in the upcoming Netflix production “Model Family” (literal title). So Ji Sub’s agency 51K later stated, “So Ji Sub has received an offer for a role in Netflix’s ‘Model Family’ and is reviewing it positively.”

“Model Family” will follow what happens when an ordinary family that is on the verge of collapse due to bankruptcy and internal feuds gets involved with a bloodthirsty drug ring. In the midst of dangerous missions and close calls, the members of the family will band together and become a model family as they stand up against the drug ring that threatens their livelihoods. At the helm of the production is producing director (PD) Kim Jin Woo, who directed “Love Alarm 2.”

If So Ji Sub accepts the offer, he will take on the role of Ma Kwang Chul, the drug ring’s cruel but quick-witted second-in-command. Starting off as a regular good-for-nothing operating gambling places and entertainment establishments, he catches the eye of the drug ring’s boss and ends up taking on a management role. After searching for traces of the gang members who disappeared while delivering money to a merchant ship, he runs into a regular family.

So Ji Sub previously starred in the film “Confession” and is currently filming for the upcoming film “Alien” (literal title).

The production of Netflix’s upcoming original series Exemplary Family is in discussions with actor So Ji-sub for a casting offer.

On February 24, an official from So’s agency 51K shared, “So Ji-sub received an offer to appear in Netflix’s Exemplary Family. We are currently reviewing [the proposal] positively.” Earlier this year, it was reported that the streaming giant also reached out to Reply 1994 actor Jung Woo to essay a main role in the drama.

 

Exemplary Family will follow Park Dong-ha (Jung Woo), a family man who works as a college lecturer. Due to his incompetence and their family’s impending bankruptcy, his wife decides to file for divorce. Their already complicated lives take an unexpected turn, however, when two dead bodies and five billion KRW in cash turn up before them.

So is being roped in to portray Ma Kwang-cheol, the quick-witted yet ruthless second-in-command of a drug ring. He used to operate entertainment establishments and gambling places but soon impressed his boss and got offered a management position. One day, the members of their cartel delivering money for a merchant ship disappear. While tracking them down, he crosses paths with an ordinary family and gets entangled in their dangerous affairs.

Netflix confirms lineup for newest original series Model Family

by tineybeanie

thecastlineupforjungwoodrama.jpg
Jung Woo, Yoon Jin-seo, Park Ji-yeon, Park Hee-soon

Upcoming Netflix series Model Family has announced its final casting lineup. Jung Woo (Mad for Each Other) plays the lead role of Dong-ha, an ordinary breadwinner who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce. One day, he discovers an expensive car and becomes entangled with the second-in-command of a drug ring (à la Breaking Bad).

 

Park Hee-soon (My Name, Beautiful World) plays Gwang-cheol, the ruthless second-in-command who coerces Dong-ha to become further involved with his drug operations. In contrast to Dong-ha’s character as the household head who lives for his family, Park Hee-soon’s character seems cold-blooded and only interested in protecting his money.

Yoon Jin-seo (Jackpot) plays Jung Woo’s wife, Eun-joo, who has a hidden secret. Park Ji-yeon (Hospital Playlist 2) plays Joo-hyun, a police investigator in the vice and drugs department, who is tasked with pursuing leads on Dong-ha and Gwang-cheol.

Suits director Kim Jin-woo is attached to this project and Production H (School 2017) will be producing. Model Family will air on Netflix in 2022.

According to Jupiter Entertainment on the March 15th, Park Doo-sik will appear in KBS 2TV's Wednesday-Thursday drama 'The speed to you 493km' (Accelerate You). He has also been cast in the Netflix drama 'Exemplary Family', which will be released this year.

 

The first broadcast on the 20th of next month is a sports romance between 'Park Tae-yang' (Park Joo-hyun), who is all about 25 sports, and 'Park Tae-joon' (Chae Jong-hyeop), who is a sportsman, in a badminton business team. 493 km is the world's fastest badminton speed recorded in the Guinness Book of Records in 2013.

 

Park Doo-sik will play the national badminton player 'Koo Hyuk-bong'. He practiced badminton for about three months, trying to increase the cast synchro rate. He will reveal his presence as a mood maker within the team. It is expected that he will show a different side from the agent of the National Security Agency in the previous drama 'Undercover'.

 

He also gives strength to the exemplary family. It is the story of an ordinary head of household, Dong-ha (Jung-woo), who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce, accidentally discovers a car with a lot of money, and gets entangled with the second-in-command, Gwang-cheol (Park Hee-joon), a drug gangster. Park Doo-sik is expected to show off his charisma as 'Mingyu', a member of Gwangcheol's group.

 

Park Doo-sik said, "I practiced badminton for a long time to transform into a national team player. I once again felt that 'the national team players are amazing'."

Jung Woo heads Netflix’s A Model Family, facing off against Park Hee-soon

by tccolb

NISI20220714_0001041775_web.jpg?rnd=2022

 

The first promos have dropped for Netflix’s original series A Model Family and if the teaser is anything to go by, this crime thriller certainly has its own flair with intriguing music and cinematography.

The drama stars Jung Woo (Mad for Each Other) as Dong-hwa, an ordinary man who used to do all the right things in life. But now he’s at his lowest point, facing possible bankruptcy and divorce from his wife Eun-joo – played by Yoon Jin-seo (Jackpot). Dong-hwa’s moral compass is thus tempted when he stumbles across a dead man’s car with a big bag of cash.

 

This puts him on the radar of Park Hee-soon (Dr. Brain) – playing mob boss Ma Gwang-chul – who, of course, wants his money back pronto. Complicating matters, Park Ji-yeon’s (Red Heart) police officer Joo-hyun is on both their tails, trying to solve the crime and ensure justice is served.

 

 

The newly released teaser begins with police officer Joo-hyun investigating the case and as she spies on mob boss Ma, she tiredly wonders, “Why I am here, what RickRoll'D are you up to, and who is that professor?” We see that both Dong-hwa and Eun-joo have been added to the police board, noting that Dong-hwa is an English major who works as a part-time lecturer while Eun-joo discontinued her studies after three years.

An angry Dong-hwa slams his books in the middle of class and we flash back to him finding a car with dead bodies, as well as a bag filled with money. Meanwhile, officer Joo-hyun mulls over Dong-hwa’s connection with the mob, “What and how much does he know? I’m curious why they let him live…” We then briefly cut to the mysterious Kim Sung-oh (Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area) before returning to Dong-hwa, who tells his wife, “I’m going to protect our family and you as well.”

But mob boss Ma is keeping watch on them all and Dong-hwa is soon in danger. After a text screen that reads, “The people who became fully entangled because of a dead person’s money,” we see Dong-hwa banging his head on his steering wheel before getting threatened by the mob. The teaser then closes on officer Joo-hyun who concludes, “Ah, they really are an amusing family.”

Written by Lee Jae-gon with directing helmed by PD Kim Jin-woo (Love Alarm 2, Healer), A Model Family will be available August 12 on Netflix.

Jung Woo and Park Hee-soon in Netflix’s ‘Exemplary Family’… character stills revealed

 

202207191133545145_t.jpg

 

The crime thriller <Model Family>, in which an ordinary father, Dong-ha, who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce, accidentally finds the money of the dead and gets entangled with a criminal organization, has released character stills. The released stills contain the precarious appearance of four people who are terribly entangled when a man who is helpless in front of a crumbling family one day finds a corpse and a bag of money, and because of that, he meets these people he should not have met.

 

As the beginning of all cases, Dong-ha, an exemplary citizen who has never violated traffic laws in his life, and the head of a crisis, is played by Jung-woo. Dong-ha, who is desperate for his son's heart surgery, accidentally discovers the money of the dead and unwittingly touches it. But his choice suffocates himself and everyone else.

 

Jung-woo introduced Dong-ha as “an ordinary and textbook character, but he has two sides in his heart” and made us curious about his acting, which depicts the psychological conflict and change of the character who faces the threat that grows like a snowball.

 

Park Hee-soon plays Gwang-cheol, the second-in-command of the drug gang, who chases Dong-ha after the money bag of the disappearing organization. Gwang-cheol pushes Dong-ha into a corner by making an offer he can't refuse, who can avoid the police and can't betray him. Hee-soon Park, who plays Gwang-cheol, who “has been loyal to the organization as a family, but lost the will to live in loneliness and emptiness knowing that it is different from the real family,” exudes a dark charisma like a lonely hunting dog in danger of being abandoned.

 

202207191133545145_img_02.jpg

Eun-ju, the wife of Dong-ha, who has managed to support her family by caring for her incompetent husband, adolescent daughter, and sick son, is played by Yoon Jin-seo. Yoon Jin-seo said, "I am a character who is incapacitated due to distrust, anxiety, and regret. Then she finds out about the case involving her Dong-ha, and jumps into it as if she has something to do.” She explained Eun-ju’s character. Yoon Jin-seo solidly portrayed a character who was hit by her family and work and upended the times of her life, but tried to break through the situation by putting her fragile husband aside.

 

Park Ji-yeon takes on the role of Joo-hyeon, the team leader of the drug investigation team, who watches over them. Joo-hyeon, anxious about losing contact with a fellow police officer who infiltrated the drug gang, begins to watch out for Dong-ha, who does not suit Gwang-cheol. Park Ji-yeon, who played a reticent charismatic police officer different from the role she had taken before, said, "I didn't have strength to look strong, but I was really immersed in Joo-hyun's worries and only thought of the purpose. She also pursued mediocrity on the outside.” She revealed a deep reflection on the character, raising expectations for her acting transformation.

 

'Exemplary Family', which is attracting attention by revealing the character stills of the four characters entangled in the whirlpool of events brought about by impulsive choices, will meet viewers in more than 190 countries around the world through Netflix on August 12th.

'Exemplary Family' Director Kim Jin-woo "I wanted to challenge the story that gives enlightenment to life"

 

2MHYOKSKYYWU6DERKN2LTTI24E.jpg

 
Director Kim Jin-woo conveyed the meaning he wanted to include in Netflix's 'Exemplary Family'.
 
Director Kim Jin-woo's directorial intentions were revealed in <Exemplary Family>, a crime thriller in which an ordinary father, Dong-ha, who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce, accidentally finds the money of the dead and gets entangled with a criminal organization. Director Kim Jin-woo emphasizes the meaning of ‘exemplary’ and ‘family’ through <Exemplary Family>. Director Kim Jin-woo pointed out the meaning of ‘exemplary’ in society through Dong-ha’s family, saying, “The word ‘exemplary’ is only an expression of value that is given from an outside perspective.”
 
Dong-ha (Jung-woo) and Eun-joo (Yoon Jin-seo)'s family "is a model family from the outside, but they live with problems that are not exemplary in reality." It's just barely keeping it, but it deviates as far as it goes. The released special poster looks like an ordinary family at first glance, but it captures the director's intentions with the tired-looking Eun-ju and children, and Dong-ha the most separated from them. At the same time, it captures a mysterious car crossing the family and Dong-ha's frightened expression, making them curious about what will happen to them.
 
In <Exemplary Family>, another type of family appears in addition to the families of Dong-Ha and Eun-Ju, who are related by love and blood, but whose meaning is degenerating. Gwang-cheol (Park Hee-soon), who wants to use Dong-ha for a crime, treats the organization like family and dedicates her life to it, but he realizes that he has no choice but to be pushed by a member of the organization who has real family relationships. Joo-hyeon (Park Ji-yeon), a police officer chasing Gwang-cheol and his organization, loses her family member and is furious when she learns that there is a traitor in the organization who has led the team to death. Although their forms are different, they run to protect their families, making risky choices and decisions without communicating with each other, leading to an irreversible ending.
 
Director Kim Jin-woo said, "I wanted to challenge a story that gives real life enlightenment" wearing a strong genre of crime thriller, making me think once more about 'a model family' and the real meaning of the work. It will be released on Netflix on August 12th.

Premiere Watch: If You Wish Upon Me, A Model Family, Stock Struck

by missvictrix

New dramas, you say? A complete smattering of different genres and tones, you say? Well, that’s what we have with this week’s new shows: a healing drama set in a hospice, another dark crime thriller from Netflix, and a quirky ensemble dramedy on TVING.

 

A Model Family

 

modelfamily_pw.jpg

 

Time slot: Friday (single drop)
Broadcaster: Netflix
Genre: Crime, thriller
Episode count: 10

Reasons to watch: Not gonna lie, it’s hard to find reasons to watch this one, at least in my brain. The cast is basically it. With the impossible-not-to-love Jung Woo as our hero who gets mixed up in some terrifying drug crimes, Park Hee-soon who couldn’t be not magnetic if he tried, and Yoon Jin-seo as a wife with secrets — well, that’s basically it. The rest is your standard Netflix crime show: desperate men, desperate measures, and overall desperation. It will surely be gritty and impactful, but likely stick to the Netflix recipe of being beautifully produced, skillfully made, and almost unbearably dark.

TL;DR: Jung Woo, Park Hee-soon as another sexy-scary bad guy, why does Netflix have to keep making shows like this

The passion and enthusiasm of the actors of 'Exemplary Family' met with the well-made story to create synergy. Kim Jin-woo's sensuous directing and directing drew the emotions of the characters in more detail, and the actors also reciprocated the director's passion with raw acting.

 

On the 9th, a production presentation of the Netflix original series 'Exemplary Family' was held at JW Marriott Dongdaemun, located in Jongno-gu, Seoul. Jung-woo Park Hee-soon, Yoon Jin-seo, Park Ji-yeon, and director Kim Jin-woo attended the event and talked about the work.

 

Message from the ironic context of 'exemplary family'

 

'Exemplary Family' is a crime thriller in which an ordinary man, Dong-ha, who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce, accidentally discovers the money of the dead and gets entangled with a criminal organization. Director Kim Jin-woo of the Netflix series 'Love Alarm' season 2 and dramas 'The Good Doctor', 'Healer' and 'Suits' is in charge of directing. Jung-woo, Park Hee-soon, Yoon Jin-seo, and Park Ji-yeon desperately lead the precarious situation of those struggling to protect their families.

 

On this day, all the main actors gathered their words and expressed their delight at the production presentation that was held in a long time. The work is about a man who was helpless in front of a collapsing family, and one day he finds a corpse and a bag of money. At first glance, it seems like an ordinary family, but the message that director Kim Jin-woo wants to convey in the situation of the most separated from them is implied. Jung-woo briefly described 'Exemplary Family' as "a thriller in which an ordinary person becomes involved with a criminal organization at a moment in crisis."

Director Kim Jin-woo advocated a story that gave real life realization by wearing a strong genre of crime thriller. First, director Kim Jin-woo pointed out the ironic meaning of the title, saying, "I do not express myself as exemplary. It is an expression given from the outside, but I tried to direct whether it can be called 'exemplary' when looking inside." As such, the 'exemplary family' raises a topic about the meaning of a true family.

 

Director Kim Jin-woo cast actors of various colors to break the clichés of the characters in the story. The current lineup was completed after contemplating to stick to the identity. Jung-woo plays Dong-ha, the weakest man who has lived an exemplary life throughout his life, and Park Hee-soon takes on the role of Gwang-cheol, the second-in-command in a drug gang that tracks Dong-ha after the disappearance of a bag of money. . Yoon Jin-seo plays Eun-joo, a wife who tells Dong-ha to divorce her incompetent and hides a secret, and Park Ji-yeon plays Joo-hyeon, a police officer who watches them closely and digs into the relationship between Dong-ha and Gwang-cheol.

Jung-woo, who has mainly played the roles of ordinary people in the dramas 'Reply 1994', 'Crazy X in this District', and the movie 'Cesibong' Re-sim', took on the role of a part-time lecturer at a university caught in a crime in this work. In this regard, Jung-woo announced the construction of a new image, saying, "A character turns into a monster in extreme situations. A character I have never been able to take care of before."

In addition, Park Hee-soon, who received a lot of love for her precarious sexy image in her previous work 'My Name', is not unfamiliar, but shows off her richer charm. Park Hee-soon said, "I received this script while filming 'My Name'. It was so much fun, but it was also true that it was a little burdensome because we were in the same profession. I didn't want to miss the work," he confessed.

 

Park Ji-yeon, who joined this work through an audition, recalled, "When she heard the news of her acceptance, she tingled as if she ate something spicy. She participated in the work with great anticipation." Jinseo Yoon, who has been working on a project for a long time since the one-act play 'Out of the Call Zone', said, "It's not that I didn't want to do a project. I always waited for a project. The desire to rest and the desire to work coexist. I finally met the 'exemplary family'. "He revealed his current situation.

 

Jungwoo's extreme experience

In particular, for this work, Jungwoo even lost weight. He said, "I'm a little muscular. I've had a lot of strong images in the past, but in this work, I was a part-time instructor. I wanted to feel normal, so I lost 3-4kg and now I've lost 66kg. The director was very satisfied." It revealed the difficulties in completing it.

 

In addition, Jung-woo, who went through extreme experiences, recalled the time, saying, "Actually, when I saw the script, I thought it was easy. When filming started, he dug the ground, buried it, and ran away with a bag of money. . Park Kyung-rim, who was in charge of the host, acknowledged Jung-woo's efforts, adding, "In fact, Jung-woo is famous as a practice bug." Following the approach of director Kim Jin-woo, who pursued raw improvisation, Jung-woo maximized the character's anxiety.

 

Among them, the similarity to the popular Netflix drama 'Ozark' was also mentioned. 'Ozark' tells the story of Chicago-based financial consultant Marty, who launders $500 million of drug gang money after moving with her family to Ozark, Missouri. Director Kim Jin-woo said, "I heard that story, but I didn't watch it on purpose. I understood at what point the story was told. However, if I watched the drama, I would be affected. Rather, the work I wanted to take was 'Pavo'. The point of conflict was Even if there is, there is a charm that is different from the special characteristics of the country and the family," he emphasized.

 

There was also a cautious attitude toward the subject of entertainment pubs and drug materials. Director Kim Jin-woo explained, "Drugs are dragged into the story, which makes it less realistic. In the process of dealing with various narratives, it is inevitable to link and borrow material."

Meanwhile, 'Exemplary Family' will be released simultaneously around the world on the August 12th.
