[Spoiler]

Eli of U-Kiss To Star In Chinese 'Full House' Remake

Eli of U-Kiss To Star In Chinese 'Full House' Remake

Eli

The characters in the upcoming remake of "Full House" will be speaking Chinese. That"s because the remake, which begins filming in December, is being co-produced by Korea"s Group Eight Production Company and China"s Asia Holdings.

But the star of this version will also be Korean. Eli of U-Kiss will play the leading male character made popular by singer-actor Rain in the 2004 k-drama version.

When foreign actors appear in Chinese dramas they are usually dubbed but that won"t have to happen with Eli. He was born to Korean parents in Los Angeles, but after dropping out of high school, he traveled alone to Beijing at the age of 15. The main rapper in the six-member group U-Kiss, Eli went to school in China and also learned to speak Mandarin.

Besides brushing up on his language skills, he learned Taekwondo and King Fu techniques for 12 years, which led to him being cast as an extra in a Chinese film.

The k-drama, which also starred Song Hye Kyo, was wildly popular with ratings as high as 40 percent. Auditions will be held for the actress who will play the female lead.

In the original k-drama, Song Hye Kyo played Ji Eun, a screenwriter who lives in a house that her father built. It is called Full House. Her so-called friends trick her. They send her away on a fake free vacation and while she is away, they sell her house to a famous actor named Young Jae, played by Rain.

She comes back and she"s homeless but she"s not willing to give up on her house. Young Jae lets her live there but she has to live there according to his rules. That"s not easy as she is a slob and he is very neat. Then they have a fake marriage to make his ex-girlfriend jealous and the eventually the two contractually married roommates fall in love.

There"s no word on how faithfully the Chinese version will match the Korean one.

Group 8 is also the production company responsible for adapting the Japanese manga-based drama "Nodame Cantabile" into "Tomorrow Cantabile," starring Joo Won. They specialize in adapting manga-based dramas, as they were also instrumental in bringing "Pretty Man," which starred Jang Geun Suk, and "Playful Kiss," which starred Kim Hyun Joong, to Korea. The production company"s most famous manga turned k-drama may be "Boys Over Flowers," starring Lee Min Ho and Gu Hye Sun.

"Full House" Chinese remake will start filming in December.

KBS full steam ahead with King 8217 s Face casts Jo Yoon hee to star

KBS full steam ahead with King 8217 s Face casts Jo Yoon hee to star

Recent controversy doesn’t seem to have derailed KBS, accusations of plagiarism and lawsuits be damned. On August 25, producers of the 2013 movie The Face Reader filed for an injunction against KBS for their unauthorized drama remake The King’s Face, alleging that KBS met with them to make the drama, backed out of the deal, and subsequently happened to come up with their own version. In light of this, KBS has issued a statement that The King’s Face, “Is a totally different drama,” and immediately followed it up with casting announcements that Jo Yoon-hee (Scandal, Nine) is being courted to play the leading lady.

I might believe KBS… if they hadn’t been promoting The King’s Face as a remake of The Face Reader for months. Now suddenly all the press releases are describing it strictly as a story about Prince Gwanghae, which just happens to also include a face-reading fortuneteller as a major story element. They’re arguing that the movie is primarily about the face reader (played by Song Kang-ho in the film), while their drama is set in a different century, and will focus on the prince becoming king.

It’s amusingly obvious that they’re trying to find a way out of this mess after the film’s production house, Jupiter Film, came out with statements that they met with KBS Media back in 2012 to make the drama together and had suggested the writer that KBS is now working with. KBS in turn has issued the following statement: “The King’s Face is a totally different drama in people, era, and setting, with different plot and conflict structure, and mode of expression from The Face Reader.”

One wonders why they don’t just cut the face reader out of the story altogether then, if they’re going to toe this line (not that any move at this point makes them look much better). In any case, KBS is now calling it a coming-of-age story about Prince Gwanghae and his contentious relationship with his father. Seo In-gook (High School King of Savvy) is still considering the leading role as Gwanghae, and Lee Sung-jae (Suspicious Housekeeper) is up to play his father King Seonjo.

Jo Yoon-hee has been offered the role of the woman who has the love of three men — Gwanghae, his father King Seonjo, and the face reader (yunno, the one totally different from the one in the movie). Not much is said about her role, but she’ll be caught between the father and son who become rivals in politics and love. Writing is Lee Hyang-hee (War of Money), and directing is PD Yoon Sung-shik (Gaksital, Story of a Man). The thing is, before all this backstage drama I was looking forward to this show; now I don’t know what frankensteined not-a-remake-we-swears-it will be born in its place.

The King’s Face is being prepped for a November premiere.
