Looks like Ivy Chen is continuing her quest to star opposite as many hot K-actors as possible. Following her turn opposite Super Junior‘s Choi Si Won and Lee Donghae in Skip Beat, she followed that up with a C-drama with Chun Jung Myung earlier this year. She’s been filming successive C-dramas in China all year but last month she went back to Taiwan to film a series of webisode mini-movies for the Taiwan Bureau of Tourism opposite Jo Jung Seok. The websides are geared for the Korean market and is filmed in both Chinese and Korean with a Korean PD at the helm. A short teaser was released and the gist of the story appears to be Jo Jung Seok traveling through Taiwan solo and takes the wrong train and Ivy ends up showing him around. Apparently the production spent days in the gorgeous Sun Moon Lake area in Central Taiwan filming, and I can personally attest that the scenery there is jawdroppingly amazing. When I watched the teaser I almost wanted to cry because the first thing going through my head was “OMG, Eun Shi Kyung isn’t dead at all, it really was a feint, he’s now living in Taiwan and no longer putting his life on the line for King and Country.” But then I remembered poor Princess Jae Shin (and her bird) and felt like Jo Jung Seok was cheating on her with Ivy. Heh. Dramas, sometimes fact and fiction blends in the brain and one needs a good head shaking to clear away the cobwebs. The directing for this bit of tourism promotion actually looks fantastic, with a dreamy and romantic vibe about it.
