Song Jong Ho talks about going from Lee Il Hwa

Yeah... remember when Lee Il Hwa played the mother in "Reply 1997" whose daughter was dating Song Jong Ho? He was pretty much like a son to Lee Il Hwa there, but now he"s playing her husband in "Orange Marmalade." That"s what you call a sudden switch! He discussed this during the press conference for the upcoming vampire drama on May 12.

He said regarding their coupling, "It was awkward calling her honey when I used to call her mother in "Reply 1997." Still, we"ve worked together [before] and she comes out as an older woman, but she looks young, so I felt no burdens. I hope you"ll watch without preconceived notions."

You"ll get to see a different chemistry between the two actors this time around! Make sure you watch out for it this Friday during the drama"s premiere.

"Reply 1997" Couple Sung Dong Il and Lee Il Hwa Confirmed to Star in "Reply 1988″

News via

The phenomenal “Reply” series is making its way to comeback with new season, "Reply 1998."

A representative of tvN revealed on March 17th, “We are planning to air ‘Reply 1988‘ sometime in the second half of the year. The exact broadcast period has not been decided yet.” The production team is currently working on the script for the drama.

Earlier today, producer Shin Won Ho shared that “Reply 1988″ will be a family drama set in the year 1988. Slightly stepping away from the original format, the director hopes to focus on the heart-warming stories of diverse families, and plans to take inspiration from the MBC drama “Three Families Under a Roof,” which enjoyed huge popularity in the 80s.

While the casting is still ongoing, Sung Dong Il and Lee Il Hwa have already been cast for the drama. This will mark their third time to act together as a married couple in another season of the “Reply” series.

Meanwhile, producer Shin Won Ho and scriptwriter Lee Yoo Jung are the creators of hit series “Reply 1997” and “Reply 1994,” which can be accounted for the breakthroughs of talented actors like Seo In Guk, A Pink‘s Jung Eun Ji, Go Ara, and Jung Woo.

"Producers", targeting to be the "Answer To 1997" of ground-wave?

News via

The creation of tvN drama "Answer to 1997" went down in broadcasting history. There were no top stars and it wasn"t prepared by a writer or a producer. However, it made a hit with a few elements such as the 90s, retro, dialect and entertainment. "Answer to 1997" had many merits but what stood out the most was the balance between comedy and drama. It reached its peak in the sequel "Answer Me 1994".

The main things about the "Answer" series were the characters who were comical although it wasn"t comedy and the way the characters created entertainment in each episode. Producer Sin Won-ho from the KBS entertainment department and Lee Woo-jeong brought out their strong points and created such results.

A producer who specializes in entertainment and this is why "Producers" is likely to be compared to "Answer to 1997". Some say it is the birth of a ground-wave version of "Answer to 1997".

The conditions of "Producers" are much better. Producer Seo Soo-min-I from "Happy Together - 1 Night 2 Days" has control along with writer Park Ji-eun from dramas, "My Husband Got a Family" and "My Love from the Star". The two of them alone is issue enough but the cast also includes Cha Tae-hyeon and possibly Kong Hyo-jin and Kim Soo-hyeon-I.

However, too much good can lead to side effects. The conditions in which Sin Won-hyo and Lee Woo-jeong-I wrote "Answer to 1997" were barren. No one expected such a great hit to cause such an impact on cable. It wasn"t attempted before so there was no anticipation and the producer and writer were free from pressure, allowing them to make create their own colors.

"Producers" is different. An entertainment producer in the lead of an entertainment program has never been attempted before and the project is getting bigger. With the featuring of Kim Soo-hyeon-I, Cha Tae-hyeon and Kong Hyo-jin, failure is not an option. Park Ji-eun"s writing was the engine expected to bring all these elements together but no one can be too sure about that. It"s hard to imagine what a drama writer and an entertainment producer may create.

A broadcasting station personnel claims, "The cost for the cast and the writer alone may be outstanding, as well as the production cost, too. It might be risky". However, "Producers" is the drama of the year. Will it be successful with good enough ingredients to create it?

5 Times Shi Won From Answer Me 1997 Proved She’s Just Like Us

5 Times Shi Won From Answer Me 1997 Proved She’s Just Like Us

After telling myself for years that I can’t watch any Korean dramas, I was finally sucked into watching one. That one drama turned out to be Answer Me 1997, and it was like my life had got turned upside down. But what struck me the most as a K-pop fan was the main character, Shi Won. In many ways, she reminded me of my friends and I. While there are many moments we could relate to her, here are 5 times that prove Shi Won from Answer Me 1997 is just like us.

1. She’s just as devoted as we are

Being a K-pop fan also comes with some criticism. We are constantly being asked “Why do you listen to something you can’t understand?” or “Why are you so invested in these groups?” Well, the answer is simple! If we find something that makes us happy, do you really think we wouldn’t get invested in it? At least you’ll have something in your life that you can be passionate about. Second, yes the music is in Korean and it’s not a language I understand at the moment, but it’s not hard looking up a translation on Google. These days fandoms are very quick to translate songs and music shows. Plus, it’s a new pathway to learning a whole new culture and language. I mean, even I’m taking Korean classes now!

2. She got into college because of H.O.T., and people are doing theses in college over K-Pop

Yes, it is true! I’ve known some acquaintances to do theses about K-pop in undergraduate and graduate school. I think it’s fascinating to see people do this kind of research over K-pop. It just goes to show that K-pop can help with your school studies as well.

3. She defends her bias to the end, and you know you do too

If there’s one thing about Shi Won and her bias is that she was very protective over H.O.T. One of my favorite scenes has to be before the award show where H.O.T. fans and Sechkies fans were basically in an all out fan war! You know these days you feel slightly defensive when it comes to your favorite group. Granted, some people might be more forward with the way they show their protection over their favorite groups.

4. You know you sometimes wish you were born in Seoul

As a K-pop fan, the golden location is Seoul, South Korea. The place with a plethora of K-pop shows, merchandise, and if you’re lucky, you might get to see your bias in the flesh. Some fans’ goals are even to start living in Seoul eventually and somehow start working for their favorite groups. Sadly, reality is pretty harsh and can’t exactly be like a Korean drama, but hey, it doesn’t hurt to dream, right?

5. Just like her, you love every moment spent with your friends

One great thing about being a K-pop fan is all the friends you make along this crazy, wonderful journey. Having a friend who is dedicated to K-pop just as much as you are makes it 10 times more fun. Just imagine all the comebacks, music shows, and concert DVD parties you could have with friends.
