I’m always impressed at how hardworking and seemingly tireless some entertainers are. Case in point is Lee Jun Ki, other than his two year military service hiatus, he’s a nonstop star toggling both an acting and singing career, and doing so with an upbeat positive attitude. I feel like he just finished Scholar Who Walks the Night yet here he is in the first picture from the production of upcoming Korean Bu Bu Jing Xin, in a selfie with costars Kang Ha Neul and Kim Sung Kyun. He actually did another project between Scholar and K-BBJX, heading off to film a Resident Evil movie with Mila Jovovich.
Seeing Jun Ki and Kang Na Neul eases my mind a bit, the age difference isn’t as visually jarring as I initially worried. In the drama the two men play rival princes who are the closest in age and ability, while Kim Sung Kyun won’t be playing a prince and instead will be a court official. Speaking of hardworking, leading lady IU has been in the news in recent months for her singing career, and this week visited Taiwan for a fan meeting concert that was jam packed, an indicator of her popularity overseas in the Chinese speaking countries. That bodes well for her casting in the highly anticipated BBJX remake.
I don’t care about IU because my eyes will only be on haneul, jisoo and junki..
I’m really not worried about Kang Ha Neul. I know he has the acting chops to shine in this role.
Even though I loved the original drama, I’m looking forward to this one. Let’s see how it goes.
Same here. I’m keeping an open mind.
When I first saw the title of this post, I just saw K-Bu and thought, “Hmm, yup, that’s what I’m calling it from now on.”
And K-Roxy for IU. It seems the Korean name doesn’t quite kick like the Chinese name.
Hmmm unless they really changed it up, IU would have about 2x the screen time compared to the main actors, but she’s still focused on her incredibly invincible music career at this point… (I’m hoping they’ll change it up)
thank you for the post 🙂 Lee jun Ki ssi is really a hard working entertainer and that’s for our benefit :d
Ockoala, can you confirm if this drama is still financed by Universal? In the beginning there were many articles how much money the americans would give, but in the last 2 months – not a word.
Are they still behind the drama or let it be produced by the koreans alone?
IU is simply disgusting
What had she done to offend you? LOL
Even in the Asian grocery stores or restaurants here in the States, IU’s songs are played quite often. It seems she’s not only famous in Korea, but also popular overseas.
Looking forward to the drama and all the cast. Hope IU releases an OST for it too.
