If that ain’t the picture of “triumphant return,” I don’t know what is.
The sizable cast of upcoming epic drama East of Eden held its production press conference on August 21, and trotted out
all most of its big names (and it has many, although some were either not in attendance or weren’t photographed — no Lee Mi-sook?). The event was held at the drama’s open set location in South Gyeongsang province (located on the southeastern part of the peninsula, near Busan).
Everyone looks healthy and happy, although pretty-faced Song Seung-heon seems a little, um, smirkier than usual, doesn’t he? (I don’t think it’s his best look.)
The drama premieres August 25 on MBC (it’s a Monday-Tuesday-er).
The cast is, from left to right: Park Hae-shin, Han Ji-hye, Yeon Jung-hoon, Lee Da-hae, drama PD Kim Jin-man, Song Seung-heon, Lee Yeon-hee, and Jo Min-ki. (Too bad they didn’t decide to pose under their poster images, like some sort of performance-art onscreen-versus-reality juxtaposition. Or, you know, just for fun.)
Yeon Jung-hoon with Song Seung-heon, lookin’ mighty smug:
Lee Yeon-hee, positively radiating light:
Cheery-looking Han Ji-hye:
Lee Da-hae always comes off so conscious of how pretty she is, which is annoying, but I suppose justified since she IS pretty:
- Dennis O joins East of Eden, because it has credibility to burn
- Song Seung-heon jumps East of Eden, south of balcony
- From sob princess to ab princess
- East of Eden completes its love geometry
- One more reason to watch East of Eden
