The Korean-Chinese production, “Bichunmoo” starring Joo Jin Mo & Park Ji Yoon will finally be shown to Korean viewers soon.
The drama started filming at the end of March 2004 and was completed in May 2005. And after a long wait of 2 years and 7 months after production wrapped up, the drama will finally be seen by Korean viewers at long last.
Outdoor scenes for “Bichunmoo” was all filmed in China and total production amounted to about 700,0000 USD. This is a pure martial arts drama and talks about a tragic love story between a guy and his love who aren’t afraid of impending death. The drama will be edited from it’s original 38 episodes into 14 episodes and shown on SBS every Friday night.
Yesterday afternoon at the press conference held at SBS building, female lead Park Ji Yoon expressed, “There were many tough moments that can’t be described during filming, and this is a production which many have devoted their hard work to completing it, we had high hopes for this, but sadly it was never shown, so we were all pretty sad. I thought that this would be my only regret in my life, but I’m happy now knowing that it would be broadcast soon.”
Meanwhile, the male lead, Joo Jin Mo expressed, “I can’t really describe how I feel now”, as he gave his thoughts on the eventual broadcast.
“Bichunmoo” is directed by Yoon Sang Ho who also directed the mega blockbuster drama, “Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi” last year. The show which was produced with a budget of 60 million won in 2004 will finally be shown on Korean television starting February 1st.
Although the movie, “Bichunmoo” was kind of corny compared to similiar flicks now, it was pretty cool when I watched it light years ago. I hope this would be a good drama to look forward to.
