I'm a little bit worried when I read that the drama hasn't got a broadcaster yet @_@


"Kim Jung-hoon headlines remake of Japanese drama

by girlfriday | July 28, 2014

There’s a Korean-Japanese co-production in the works to remake Tetsu no Hone (Bones of Steel), based on the Ikeido Jun novel of the same name. The Japanese drama aired on NHK in 2010, and the Korean remake, described as an action drama, is gearing up to start shooting this summer. The adaptation will be called City of the Sun, and actor Kim Jung-hoon (Her Legend, I Need Romance, Goong) has confirmed that he’ll be headlining and has begun training for the stunt-heavy role.

The drama is about corporate corruption in the construction business, and the hero is an employee who finds out just how deep the corruption goes and contemplates going up against the construction company he works for. It’s a familiar world in dramaland — the dirty backdoor politicking that goes on behind the chaebol giants — but if it’s painted with darkness and the writing is sharp, it could be a really thrilling tale.

At the helm is director Park Ki-hyung of movies Gangster High and Acacia, and the drama is planned for a 20-episode miniseries. The thing that makes me wary is the fact that it doesn’t have a broadcaster but is planning to cast and begin production relatively soon. It’s not that pre-produced dramas ALL do badly, but this drama does strike up negative associations. Let’s say we wait till a broadcaster picks it up before counting our chickens, shall we?

Kim Jeong Hoon challenging action scenes in "City of the Sun"

Oh, I thought he would be a "construction consultation" in this new drama (source here).
Turn out it is a very dangerous job :-D

Rough translation from some articles on media today:

"Kim Jeong Hoon, challenging action scenes. 'City of the Sun' starring confirmed.

His agency Mersenne Entertainment has said, "Kim Jeong Hoon is now in Ilsan practice in the gym four times a week. He is taking (full) action scenes for the first time in the new drama, that seems to be a lot of tension. It gives Kim Jeong Hoon a different image from existing ones of his, he seems to enjoy it. "

[Eng] Kim Jeong Hoon Explains Rumors About His Family, Image and More

A long and interesting article about Kim Jeong Hoon's interview a while ago.


[Interview] Kim Jeong Hoon Explains Rumors About His Family, Image and More

2014.07.05 16:00

A former member of UN, Kim Jeong Hoon explained the numerous rumors about him.

Releasing a new solo mini album on July 3, singer and actor Kim Jeong Hoon met with Newsen and shared his thoughts on the ‘prince’ image he had when he was a member of UN.

About his ‘prince’ and ‘umchinah’ image, Kim Jeong Hoon said, “I felt pressured but I felt grateful to hear that when I was at that age. But now it’s really embarrassing. I’m a lot older and I feel pressured and embarrassed to be called those things when there are so many pretty boys out there now.”

He then explained the numerous rumors surrounding him one by one.

Kim Jeong Hoon started, “There was a rumor saying that my family is a chaebol but that’s not true. My father is a government worker and my mother is a housewife.”

He continued, “Many people also think that I am a perfectionist but I’m not. I’m very easy going. Sometimes I get things started and never get to finish them. I make a fuss over small things and become broadminded about big things. I have many flaws.”

Lastly, Kim Jeong Hoon explained that he is not as smart as people think he is. He said, “Many people told me that I was elite in the past but this is not true anymore. I can’t even go on KBS 2TV’s 1 vs. 100 with my brain now. Of course I would do well if they only gave out questions related to science, which I’m interested in, but I don’t know anything when it comes to politics, economics, current events or social culture.”

Having explained the rumors that surrounded him for the past 14 years, Kim Jeong Hoon revealed his future plans and dreams.

“I don’t live my life according to a plan. I tend to just go with what happens. Now that I’m older, I would like to study more when I have the time and try teaching others. I also want to make a company with people around me to train junior entertainers. I once said that I want to make a research institute and I still would like to. I want to live my life happily.”

Meanwhile, Kim Jeong Hoon’s new mini album releasing on July 3 contains four songs, including the title song One Day (translated).

Kim Jung Hoon Releases Mini Album '5091' On July 3

Singer Kim Jung Hoon is back.

On July 3, Kim Jung Hoon released new mini album 5091 through online music stores, kicking off promotions. The album title "5091" signifies the number of days since Kim Jung Hoon's debut as boy duo UN.

Kim Jung Hoon, who has been active as an actor in Japan and China, now returned to Korea's eager fans awaiting his new album.

Four tracks are listed in the new mini album, including title song "Day" (Haru)

Title song "Day" carries the sentiments of love under a cherry blossom tree. With a melodic piano sound, Kim Jung Hoon's soft voice sings of the memories of love.

Kim Jung Hoon stated: "The title song, 'Day.' carries a pretty melody, but is in fact a sad song. I think anyone who has parted with a loved one can agree and relate to the lyrics. The new album carries a lot of my worldview and color; I love songs that contain purity."

In the album, composer Kim Sung Wook participated in the making of the songs. Kim Sung Wook appeared on JTBC's "Hidden Singer" as Yoon Min Soo's voice soundalike, shocking even Yoon Min Soo himself.

Kim Jung Hoon – Day / Haru (하루)
July 3, 2014 by popgasa

When the wind blows
And the white flower petals fall

Us in love, us hating each other
I remember those days

When I remember those days
I miss you, who cared for me more than anyone

It hurts a lot
Maybe I want to go back

I think back to those times
To the place where the snow fell
When I close my eyes
We are still there

Our story is spread out in the sky
It’s a day when I’m missing you
From those beautiful days

Like the flowers that blossom and wither
Love has passed like that

You will be somewhere
Reminiscing as you look at the flowers
The moments we were in love

I think back to those times
To the place where the snow fell
When I close my eyes
We are still there

Our story is spread out in the sky
It’s a day when I’m missing you
From those beautiful days

Our days that were dazzling
The memories are still familiar
I don’t want to forget you yet so I keep remembering
I think back to those times as I walk on this road I walked with you

I think back to those times
To the place where the snow fell
When I close my eyes
We are still there

Our story is spread out in the sky
It’s a day when I’m missing you
From those beautiful days
