While the production company Hive Media Corp revealed that Jung Woo Sung confirmed his appearance in the drama, Hyun Bin’s agency VAST Entertainment shared, “[Hyun Bin] received an offer to star in ‘Made in Korea’ and is positively reviewing the offer. No final decision has been made yet.”

“Made in Korea” is a series capturing the major events that penetrated the turbulent era of Korea in the 1970s. Jung Woo Sung will play the role of Jang Geon Young, a prosecutor with animal-like instincts and tenacity.

Director Woo Min Ho of the films “Inside Men,” “The Drug King,” and “The Man Standing Next” will be in charge of directing. While it was previously reported that the new series “Made in Korea” is a spin-off drama version of the film “The Drug King,” Hive Media Corp clarified, “It is not true that ‘Made in Korea’ is a spin-off of ‘The Drug King.’ It will be a completely different project.”

“Made in Korea” is planning to kick off filming this summer.

Jung Woo Sung Signs On For Mega-Production ‘Made In Korea’, Hyun Bin In Discussions

Director Woo Min Ho’s newest project, ‘Made in Korea’, is making waves with its star-studded potential cast. The drama, which draws from the turbulent events of South Korea’s recent history, particularly the dramatic era of the 1970s, has already confirmed the participation of Jung Woo Sung is considering taking on a leading role, adding an exciting layer of anticipation among fans.

 

‘Made in Korea’ is expected to be a big-budget film, with a reported production cost of around 70 billion won (approximately $52 million USD). This makes it one of the most expensive Korean drama ever made.

 

This ambitious project is particularly noteworthy as it represents Woo Min Ho’s first venture into a TV series. The director, celebrated for his deep and insightful exploration of historical and societal themes in films like ‘Inside Men’, ‘The Drug King’, and ‘The Man Standing Next’, is expected to bring his unique vision to the small screen.

 

It’s worth noting that despite initial rumors suggesting ‘Made in Korea’ might be a spin-off of ‘The Drug King’, these speculations have been clarified as unfounded. The drama and the film are distinct projects with no direct connection.

 

With a 70 billion KRW (approximately 58 million USD) budget, ‘Made in Korea’ stands as a major undertaking in the industry. With Jung Woo Sung confirmed and Hyun Bin potentially on board, the drama promises not only to delve into pivotal moments of Korea’s past but also to showcase the exceptional talents of its cast.

 

As ‘Made in Korea’ sails through pre-production, the team is setting their sights on beginning filming this summer.

It seems that this drama is a male centric drama but I wish there is an interesting female character as well. We`ll see.

 

I see why people thought it is a spinoff of movie The Drug King. The action of the movie took place in 1970 and  a prosecutor attemps to take down the drug smuggler. 

 

In this drama Jung Woo-sung plays a prosecutor with "animal-like instincts and terrifying obsession" and I guess he will want to catch Hyun Bin`s character? I am curious about the plot. They promised a "captivating plot and grand scale" .
