Remember how DBSK’s Hero Jaejoong was all set for his acting debut in the joint Korea-Japan project, Heaven’s Postman? His co-star has been cast, and it’s Iljimae‘s Han Hyo-joo.
The series is notable for its famous Japanese drama writer Kitagawa Eriko (Long Vacation) and its I’m Sorry, I Love You director Lee Hyung-min.
Jaejoong plays a “quirky” character who delivers messages from loved ones on earth to the deceased in heaven. Han Hyo-joo is described merely as his co-star.
A source with the production said, “Currently, the actors are in script rehearsal, and shooting will begin early next month.” The two-episode “telecinema” is looking at a May 2009 air date on SBS and will also get a theater release and DVDs in both Japan and Korea, which explains why the production was eager to cast leads who command fans in both countries.
