“Power of Park Yoochun” Each Drama In Which He Appears, Advance-Sale to Japan
It is fitting of a Korean Wave star famous in Japan. The new Monday-Tuesday Mini-series of MBC “Ripley” will be exported to Japan. From the last year’s KBS Drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” to this “Ripley” have been advance-sold to Japan due to the sole reason that Park Yoochun is the lead.
The production team of “Ripley” let it out that recently the airing rights to Japan has been sold. “Ripley” is a drama that will handle the story of a woman who is destroyed to lies that beget another. Due to the reason that it was planned on the inspiration of the incident in which Shin Jungah fabricated her academic credentials, it became a topic of conversation among viewers. Park Yoochun appears as the lead who loves the woman (Lee Dahae) who is caught in the lies.
“Sungkyunkwan Scandal” in which Park Yoochun first showed himself as an actor was also sold at an unconventional price (estimated to be approximately 3,000,000,000 KRW) prior to its airing last year (T/N: approximately 3 million USD). When taking into account the fact that “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” was a 20-episode work, “Ripley” which is a 16-episode work is estimated to be exported for 2,500,000,000 KRW (approximately 2.5 million USD).
Ripley will air starting on the 30th as the follow-up to “Zhackpae”.
