Group JYJ member Kim JaeJoong has been confirmed to star in his first Korean Drama.

The drama will involve the story of a united Korea and Kim is predicted to star as the leader of united Korea’s National Intelligence Service. Kim has already revealed his acting skills by starring in a Japanese drama and Korean movie. Because this will be his first role in a Korean Drama, it has been said that he has been working extra hard to prepare for this role.

The drama is predicted to cost over a hundred billion won and top Korean actors have been selected as candidates for the drama’s other main roles. They will star as honorable Korean characters who overcome the feud between various powers seeking to possess Korea’s resources which have become available through unification. Although it has been rumored that actors have been already cast for the drama’s main characters, their management companies have opted to only state that “nothing has been finalized so far.”

<Han Ban Do> will be a blockbuster involving impressive computer graphics and large-scale battle scenes. It’s been rumored that numerous Korean top celebrities have been contacting the drama’s producers to become part of the project. The production company is considering Korea’s top actors for the role of united Korea’s president and various other main characters.

The production company responsible for <Han Ban Do> is Rameongraein, a company which has demonstrated its ability to not only produce well-made dramas, but also its ability to draw large ratings. The production company has been preparing for this drama for over three years, determined to turn <Han Ban Do> into a piece which will make a lasting impressions in the history of Korean Dramas.

Acoording to a source from Rameongraein, “Kim JaeJoong and other actors has been 90% confirmed” to star in the drama. The source also noted that “because it is such a well-planned project, Raemongraein has been contacted numerous networks very much interested in airing the drama.”

<Han Ban Do> is planned to start filming in June or July and to begin airing in October of this year.

Note 1: The previous version of the article had stated that MAJOR Korean actors Jang DongGun and Ha JiWon had been 90% confirmed to star in the drama along with JaeJoong. I guess they had to edit that part out due to the actors’ management companies telling them that “nothing had been fully finalized” just yet. STILL. Jang DongGun and Ha JiWon?!! TT_TT I seriously have tears of joy running down my face right now. So THIS was the drama JJ’s been hinting at!

FINALLY. JaeJoong will have a big individual project to work on in Korea! YAYYYYY!! Best wishes for him and I reeeaaalllly hope the production company sticks to their word this time (…I will be sooooooooo angry if we have another one of those production-company-backing-out-on-their-word-and-casting-SOMEONE ELSE-for-a-role-that-they-teased-will-be-JaeJoong’s-for-MONTHS).

…Yes, their final note about JaeJoong beein 90% confirmed for the role is really annoying me.

.

Note 2: Yes, the production company is Rameongraein (urgh. I have no idea why they decided to have such a ridiculous spelling for a name that clearly sounds just like lemon rain). Yes, the evil company that decided to pretend like YooChun was invisible once they had finished filming SGK Scandal and finished milking his fans for all the dough they can grab will their greedy dirty hands (who can forget them neglecting to interview the LEAD actor and almost airing a “special” re-edited version of the drama ELIMINATING him as the love interest of the female lead actress?). All I can say is that they must have really enjoyed the success they had with YC. Hopefully they will be more thankful this time around and treat JJ will the respect he deserves…. If they end up making the same mistakes again, I know for a fact that their life will become hell (yes, like me, JYJ fans in Korea have NOT forgotten Rameongraein’s dispicable actions in SGK Scandal)…. Good Luck Rameongraein! :D

[단독] JYJ 김재중, 국내 첫 드라마 출연작 결정
고규대기자enter@sphk.co.kr

그룹 JYJ의 멤버 김재중의 국내 첫 드라마 출연작이 결정됐다.

통일된 한반도를 배경으로 한 드라마 <한반도>가 그 무대다. 김재중은 이 드라마에서 통일 대한민국의 대통령을 보좌하는 국정원 팀장으로 출연할 예정이다. 김재중은 일본 영화와 드라마로 자신의 연기력을 선보였다. 이번 작품을 통해 처음으로 국내 드라마에 출연하게 돼 어느 때보다 공을 들이고 있다는 후문이다.

제작비만 100억 원이 넘게 투여될 의 주요 출연진은 통일 대한민국의 대통령 등으로 내로라하는 스타들이 물망에 올랐다. 이들은 통일된 한반도를 배경으로 열강들이 대한민국의 자원을 놓고 벌이는 암투를 이겨내는 자랑스러운 한국인으로 등장한다. 몇몇 배우가 주요 배역에 확정된 것으로 알려졌으나 각각의 소속사 측은 “아직 최종적으로 정해진 게 없다”고 말했다.

<한반도>는 CG 등 화려한 화면과 전투 신 등 다채로운 액션으로 천문학적인 제작비가 투입되는 대작이다. 숱한 톱스타들이 출연을 두고 앞다퉈 제작사 측에 의사타진을 하고 있다는 후문이다. 제작사 측은 대통령 역을 포함해 메인 캐스팅을 축으로 또 다른 톱스타들의 출연을 타진 중이다.

<한반도>의 제작사는 작품성과 흥행성을 골고루 갖춘 작품을 선보인 래몽래인. 제작사는 한국 드라마 역사에 길이 남을 드라마를 만들겠다는 각오로 3년 넘게 드라마의 사전 준비에 공을 들이고 있다.

한 관계자는 “김재중 등 주요 캐스팅이 90% 정도 확정됐다”면서 “탄탄하게 기획된 작품이어서 지상파뿐만 아니라 종합편성채널의 러브콜이 이어지고 있다”고 말했다.

<한반도>는 6,7월에 촬영을 시작해 올해 10월께 방송된다.
