City Conquest Kim Hyun Joong.html
DATV has announced they will air the Kim Hyun Joong drama City Conquest this summer.
The program will be aired in July and features Kim Hyun Joong in the role of Baek Mi-reu, a young man who takes revenge on society after becoming bitter with his father for abandoning their family.
Though filming had begun and the drama was pre-sold to several different countries, it went unaired after KBS denied it a slot in their 2013 lineup. However, footage from the show was aired last October as part of the City Conquest Memorial Event put on by Henecia, the official fan club of KHJ.
The drama also features Jeong Yu-mi, star of the 2011 melodrama A Thousand Days Promise. When City Conquest was unable to secure a time slot, Jeong Yu-mi went on to accept a lead role in the show Wonderful Mama.
With the news that DATV will be airing City Conquest, the question that fans are asking is will they finish filming the television series now that it will be broadcast. However, no details have been announced at this time.

The production crew for the series and we are taking final proceedings for leaving the series but Kim has practically left the series.
We have postponed a lot of work to shoot the series. Kim will do his postponed works for a while.

Since Kim has to tour Japan until March, he will keep himself busy as a singer. Kim is planning to appear on a TV series or a movie later this year. We are reviewing various scripts for him.
The initial plan was for the series to air in the first half of the year on KBS but the plan misfired. The production company for the series and KBS suffered from a conflict because of it.
Nam Goong Min and Jung Yoo Mi, who were cast in the series with Kim, are also discussing their appearances with the production company.
Fans of Kim Hyun Joong were all excited when the news of his new drama was first released last year during his Asia Tour. However, the drama has been facing difficulties in airing since last year December and KBS has recently decided not to air the drama even after the script was modified.
The dramas production company Media100 was quick to reply and stated that in order to meet the requirement of TV broadcasting station, they have changed script writer and re-edited their script, a large amount of money has been spent and subsidized by the production company themselves.
But after many changes were made, KBS has made final decision that they will not air City Of Conquest. According to Media100, the reason given by KBS is that the drama contains too much violence, it is not suitable to be aired right after South Koreas new presidents inauguration, blaming KBS for violating their contract.
However, KBS has denied this accusation and stated that the reason for dismissal of City Of Conquest is simply because of the drama is unable to meet the standard even after much editing. Besides of the inappropriate content to be aired on TV due to too much violence, but whether the drama will get a good audience response is the main reason.
Kim Hyun Joong and Jung Yoo Mi are the lead roles for City Of Conquest, the production fees have exceeded 4billion won. The drama started shooting last year in Japan and was originally scheduled to air on KBS2 early this year. Now that the TV station has decided not to air the drama, we wonder if Kim Hyun Joong will choose another drama soon?

Theres some drama surrounding Kim Hyun Joongs drama City Conquest as it has been rejected by KBS.
City Conquest gained much attention from all over the world because of its lead Kim Hyun Joong. The drama was expected to broadcast on KBS, but in a sudden turn of events KBS made the decision to reject airing the drama because it lacked in quality.
The sudden drop infuriated the producers of City Conquest, who responded, KBS revealed that after they looking over the submitted plan and script, they decided that the content was not up to par and it was inadequate to be broadcast on public television. These are only excuses. We produced this in conjunction with KBS subsidiary, KBS Media, but they decided not to air it anyway. There arent any words of apology or explanation to the producers and the domestic and international fans who are waiting for this drama.
They accused KBS of having political reasons instead, saying, We definitely heard them saying that the content is good and it has potential, but that it was not adequate to air because of the way violence was depicted, especially with the new turnover in government. When the time comes, we will provide the evidence we can prove ourselves with if necessary.
They continued, KBS told us to change writers, edit the script, and even change a part of the cast. We did everything they required even though we were hurt from it, but we were told that the drama could not be aired. This is unreasonable.
However, KBS shot back that the claims were all false, responding, We held 4 drama planning meetings because of City Conquest, and had continuously requested the producers to improve the drama. However, the plan and the script submitted in the most recent planning meeting were still not up to par. The drama also contains excessive violence, and was judged to be unfit for public broadcast. This is why we decided that we would not air it. In a report we issued them, the fact that the drama will not be aired if the script is not up to par is clearly outlined. The producers have asserted that were being political, and they also used an expression that defames the character of one of the high-ranking names of the drama industry. We will take strict actions against the producers because they are saying things that arent true.
