'SungKyunKwan Scandal', which is getting a lot of attention for casting Micky Yoochun for its lead role, will bring forth a new model for producing dramas.

Historical Drama 'SungKyunKwan Scandal', which is based off the bestseller novel 'The Lives of Sungkyunkwan Confucian Scholars', will employ a hanbok designer, publicity marketing company and a company specializing in merchandise for their production line up and have formed a blueprint for everything ranging from filming to the sales of goods related to the drama.

Although most dramas wait until after it is finished to begin selling related goods, 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' will complete all marketing, merchandise and production plans before the drama ends. The expectations for the drama is high as the production team who have come together for it is as good as it can get.

Drama production will be handled by Lemon Rain, producers of great dramas such as "My Precious Child" and "That Fool", and content commercialization will be handled by YZOO Creative, a company that has brought content MD goods to a completely new level with productions such as 'The Host', 'Jumong', and 'Unstoppable High Kick'.

Costumes will be made by world renown hanbok designer Kim Hae Soon, who showed the world the beauty of the hanbok through the drama 'Hwang Jini', and publicity will be handled by YTree Media, a company that also took on 'Hwang Jini', 'On Air', 'The Painter of the Wind' and 'Style'.

A representative of Lemon Rain showed confidence in the team and said, "We are planning on making 'SungKyunKwan Scandal' a OSMU (One Source Multi Use) item. Therefore, we had to consider everything from the production to the commercialization of the drama. We will work hard to open this drama to the global market."

Micky Yoochun, the male lead and the first to be cast, is enthusiastic about his role even though filming hasn't begun yet as he said, "I have analyzed the character carefully, I've had numerous readings with the writer and the director and I've been taking acting lessons. Although I'm nervous because this is my first attempt at acting, I will do my best."

'SungKyunKwan Scandal' will be wrapping up casting soon and begin filming on May 1st.

In 'Sunao', which depicts the story of five youth who meet through Twitter and become friends, YoungWoong Jaejoong plays the role of a Korean salesman who sells medical equipment. He, who appears in a clean-cut suit, showed various sides of his character such a youth who falls in love and a salesman in a predicament because he can't raise his sales.

He also garnered attention for giving viewers a peek into an innocent youth's heart when he pretended to have taken a group picture wrong in order to get a picture of Haru (Ueno Juri), who he is attracted to.

Fans gave various reactions such as, "It's going to be a hit!" "His beauty shines," and "I'll be able to study Japanese while learning the lines." Many also said, "It's nice to hear YoungWoong Jaejoong speak Korean since it's been a while," in reaction to when he says "What are you doing!" to his sister who causes trouble in the drama.

With characters played by stars such as YoungWoong Jaejoong, who pretends to be a doctor when he's actually a medical equipment salesman, and Ueno Juri, who pretends to be a high school teacher when she's just a teaching assistant, 'Sunao' is expected to truthfully illustrate the lives and problems of the Japanese youth. The show airs every Thursday at 10 pm (Japanese time).

(This photo of Junsu was taken in Beijing during dinner after Zuno's showcase)


We just received an emotional message from Junsu. This is what he said to Zuno’s manager – “I am very worried when I come to Singapore for my brother’s showcase. It is my first time to the country and with so many legal issues going on I had no choice but to pull out from the fans meet in Singapore. I am afraid that my fans will hate me because of this and in turn they won’t support Zuno.”

We have assured Junsu that his fear is unfounded and have told him not to worry so much because his fans still love and support him and Zuno no matter what happens. Hwaiting!

PS: DON’T WORRY FANS, JUNSU IS STILL COMING TO SINGAPORE TO SUPPORT ZUNO. When he said that he had no choice but to pull out from the fans meet in Singapore, he was referring to the autograph and photo-taking session originally planned for those who had bought the membership package A. He will be performing one song and an interview during the showcase on 1 May. Catch him there!

Thank you everyone for the support! I was very nervous, did I do okay?
I really like Tamori (t/n: the MC), and it has been said that you'll feel happiness just by looking at him.
Now that I've met the real Tamori myself, I feel very happy!
Thank you to everyone who sent over flowers and emails!
Not just Japan, but I've received countless flower baskets and emails from Korea and China.
I will gratefully look at each and every single one of them.
There were a total of 15 boxes full of emails and letters! I will slowly read through all of them too!

Tohoshinki’s Jejung, Junsu and Yuchun announced on the 14th that they have a new exclusive contract with Avex Management, and also started activities under this new unit. Because of this, in Korea, the relationship between Avex Management and Tohoshinki’s Korean management company has shown signs of deterioration.

Avex is one of the leading Management Agencies in Japan, with many popular artistes such as Namie Amuro and Koda Kumi under them. Before Tohoshinki, they had helped BoA break into the Japanese Market, and an alliance with SM Entertainment was formed. To the Korean media, the signing of Avex’s contract with the 3 members has led to speculation that Avex may want to cut off all ties with them (SM Entertainment).

SM Entertainment denies these allegations, and according to a representative, both companies still have strategic partnerships that have remained unchanged. SM Entertainment’s BoA is still managed by Avex Management in Japan, and SM Entertainment says that they working on the promotions for Avex Management’s ICONIQUE as well.

On the other hand, there were also reports saying that Avex’s attitude is “dishonest”. The contract with the 3 members for the new unit has shown a choice of utility over SM Entertainment’s trust. Korean Media also reports that this may have something to do with the fact that Avex is currently in a business slump.
