According to KeyEast on the 6th, Bae Yong Joon and Park Jin Young have recently come to an agreement to form a new company and will be producing a tv drama tentatively titled Dream High. The school-based drama will be produced with the Asian market in mind and greet viewers in early 2010.

There were earlier rumors that the Wonder Girls would be in the drama. But there was no confirmation of that from KeyEast. But it was revealed that Bae Yong Joon and Park Jin Young would be using this drama as a springboard to launch new stars while they will also be appearing in the drama themselves.

According to a KeyEast representative, “This collaboration is not just simply making tv dramas. We are just trying out something new. As opposed to companies that are based around stars, we are setting up a company that produces dramas as its aim and we hope to groom stars with this drama.”

The job of auditioning and grooming the stars would fall on Park Jin Young who has years of experience while the drama planning and production will be taken care of by Bae Yong Joon. This school-based drama will be helmed by a experienced producer and is expected to begin filming at the end of 2009.

The unexpected collaboration between Bae Yong Joon and Park Jin Young has caused ripples across the Korea and also affected the shares of their principal companies. Since the announcement, the stock prices of JYP Entertainment and BOF have been setting record numbers daily for the past 4 days. The Wonder Girls will be off to America on 10th March to record their new album.

  1. Gah, can’t wait to hear some more news regarding the collaboration between these 2 gentlemen XD.

    Just a word of randomness, I might get to go to one of their concerts in Los Angeles when they perform, March 6?9? it’s a friday. Mom’s willing to fly us both there (and yes it is a school day. She’s so awesome)

  2. This idea is way new. But with JYP and Yon-Sama collaborating, it’s going to be something big O_O!!!

    I hope their popularity boosts in the states ❤

  4. the project sounds good and i’m looking forward to it. it sorta like a drama based on school of performing artists. sorta like the hit drama fame that we did in school for a musical.

  5. OMG wonder girls will be star on this drama still unknown..
    if them.. i want some 2PM/2AM or big bang member also starring too..

  6. I don’t know about others but to me Park Jin Young has a very scary face. I hope the drama turns out good.

  7. to me, the drama kinda sounds like what the sitcom Nonstop was for: a springboard for new/emerging stars to get exposed to the public. actors included han ye seul, han hyo joo, tablo, MC Mong, the Shinhwa boys, jang geon suk, hyun bin, goo hye sun. it was even in a school setting. altho, i have a feeling that with JYP’s involvement, this is starting to smell like a Korean version of High School Musical.

  8. JYP and BYJ are such big names!
    I’m glad they’re changing the concept
    these days to “grooming stars” instead
    of just basing around them. ^^ Hope
    they do well.

  9. wow, that’s pretty cool.
    the people who will be in this drama will be very lucky since it’s aiming to make them stars.
    i still hope it’s wonder girls, but if theyre in it, i hope it wont be like cameos or anything cheesy like that. i want to see sunmi & ye eun acting ! i’ve seen sunye, sohee, & yoobin already.

  11. i love love love teen dramas……… though i think i’m a little old for them ^_^
    i hope they continue with these kinds of productions….. but it’s kind of scary since some of the SNSD members might end up showing up *(>.<)*

    awesome news though!


  12. Oh my. It seems like they’re aiming for a talent industry full of actors and actresses, singers and dancers, comedians and gagmans, MCs and whatnot. Talent agency company? I’m excited to hear what else they have to offer.
