[News] Kim Hyun Joong’s ‘Inspiring Generation’
|September 18, 2013 10:14 AM|
“Beautiful Man” (tentative translation, written by Yoo Young Ah, produced by Group Eight – Pineapple Holdings), starring Jang Geun Suk, is scheduled to air this November following KBS’ “Secret.” “Inspiring Generation,” starring Kim Hyun Joong, will be postponed for now.
Group Eight, the production company for “Beautiful Man,” commented on September 17, “‘Beautiful Man’ will be airing its first episode near the end of November after ‘Secret’ is concluded. Right now we are discussing casting with KBS, and preparing for filming.”
“Beautiful Man” is about a pretty boy named “Dokgo Ma-tae,” who steals the hearts of women with his charming good looks. He wins over 10 women and gets money, fame, connection, power, information, and success through them.
But love, which debunks all of these superficial qualities, finds its way to Dokgo Ma-tae through a female character “Botongee,” who teaches him about love.
“Dokgo Ma-tae” will be played by actor Jang Geun Suk, and Lee Jang Woo will be joining the cast as well.
Lee Jang Woo’s character David Choi is a free-spirited man who keeps a strict watch over Dokgo Ma-tae, and will contrast the pretty-faced Dokgo Ma-tae as the pretty-minded man. The two will both fight over one girl.
“Beautiful Man” will be aired after the conclusion of “Secret,” and “Inspiring Generation” has been postponed.
Lee Kang Hyun, the director of KBS drama production recently commented, “In order to start broadcasting in November, we have to start filming in China right now. However, because of certain Chinese holidays, the permission to film has been delayed.”
He continued, “If the location permit is delayed, then the 1930 Shanghai backdrop of the drama will not be complete, and that was a concern. We thought that even if we have to postpone filming and fill that spot with another project, it would be better to capture the full essence of this new drama.”
He went on to say, “‘Inspiring Generation’ is a film with very high expectations because Kim Hyun Joong is cast in it, so we want to make sure we can show viewers a complete drama that will fulfill those high expectations.”
“Inspiring Generation” has been postponed from its scheduled broadcast in late November, and will most likely be airing sometime next year.
