IRIS has already generated quite a huge interest because of its 20 billion KRW budget and its stellar cast of Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Hee. The addition of Jung Joon Ho recently has once again increased the drama anticipation.

Jung Joon Ho has been widely acknowledged as a charismatic actor in the industry over the years thanks to his roles in his drama and movies. In IRIS, Jung Joon Ho will act opposite Lee Byung Hun as his colleague in the same organization with their relations along the lines of friend and foe.

According to someone from the production company, IRIS will begin filming in March in Akita province in Japan. The first scene that will be filmed there will be a big-scale action scene involving Kim Tae Hee, Jung Joon Ho, Lee Byung Hun and T.O.P.. The station that will broadcast IRIS (20 episodes) is yet to be decided but it is estimated to greet viewers in the latter half of 2009.

  1. ^ haha, now you have to watch absolutely every episode of your namesake;)

    by logic i think JJH replaced kim seung-woo, because they named 4 main roles for the story. they didn’t suddenly go create a 5th one…so. lots of musical chair for this show’s casting. so weird.

  2. p.s. it seems like IRIS production went into money/personnel troubles (they cut 1/4 of original budget, the director had “creative difference” with LBH too?!), and kim seung-woo went to do a musical DREAMGIRLS instead.

    this is taking forever to start!!

  3. i am going to watch this for the charismatic actors LBH and JJH. my goodness, why don’t they replace KTH…i hope KTH will have a minimal role and the story of IRIS will mainly focus on LBH and JJH’s rivalry. JJH can be both a protagonist and antagonist. he can be in the likes of those Hollywood character actors i.e. Robert Downey Jr., Javier Bardem, Nicolas Cage, John Travolta.
