Introducing “The World They Live In”

The anticipated new drama The World They Live In is set to take over the Monday-Tuesday prime-time slot for KBS. On October 20, the series starring Song Hye-gyo and Hyun Bin in their drama comebacks held its production press conference.

Not only does this drama boast Song’s return to television after four years (Full House was her last) and Hyun Bin’s after two (since Snow Queen), it has also attracted much notice for the teaming of its director, Pyo Min-su (Full House), with much-lauded scriptwriter Noh Hee-kyung (Goodbye Solo, More Beautiful Than a Flower).

The 16-episode drama takes the time slot vacated by Love & Marriage, which ends today. That means it’ll soon be doing its best to challenge the current ratings leader, East of Eden (and the slightly less-watched Tazza).

 

In the drama, which is set at a broadcast station, both Song Hye-gyo and Hyun Bin play drama PDs who work together and fall in love. Song recently cut off her long hair to play the role of a professional whose appeal is described as more “asexual” (their word) than overt.

Song said of taking on the role, “When I first received the synopsis, I thought it was so interesting. Also, there was no reason for me not to do this with a director and writer I respect so much.” As for starring opposite Hyun Bin, she said, “I almost worked with him in the past, but that didn’t happen and now I finally get be paired with him in this project. Because I work well with Hyun Bin, who’s a mature and warm person, I’m receiving a lot of help from him.”

Hyun Bin also explained that while he appreciated being able to take on new experiences, “I felt a little embarrassed to be acting as a PD in front of a real PD.”

The World They Live In premieres next Monday, on October 27, but there will be a “special” broadcast tomorrow, on the 21st. The program shows brief interviews from the cast’s overseas shoots in Singapore.

Press conference photos:

I don’t quite know how Hyun Bin manages to look so dapper in some angles, and such a mess in others, such as this one:

Writer Noh Hee-kyung with PD Pyo Min-su; Seo Hyo-rim (Insoon is Pretty) with Eom Ki-joon (Kimchi Cheese Smile); Bae Jong-ok (Heavenly Beauty Park Jung-geum):

Kim Yeo-jin (Yi San); Lee Da-in (The Person I Love) with Daniel Choi (Golden Apple):

as for HB, i think the weirdness comes from that long bang thing he's got going on with his hair and that strange closed mouth mock-grin he's doing. just smile! he was so darn cute in Samsoon...sigh. i know stars have to try and take on their characters' personas and try and look different to stay current but sometimes i wish they'd just stick to what works. i'm so over the bad hairstyles from the guys lately...can we say yonsama and rain...ugh.

as for SHG, she looks so different to me for some reason. maybe the short hair? more filled out face? i dunno...something...

Whoa! Anyone else notice the way they clutch their hands?
Seems to me that their body language is mighty comfortable with one another.
Could that be something? Maybeee.

Never realized she was so short, but I guess it's because Bin is so tall?

Not sure what it is about Hyun Bin but he's really NOT that very photogenic in some pictures.
Like so, http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm96/javabeans122/drama/other/2008/world_pc9.jpg

I really like him in KSS, however, these days sometimes I find him just downright fug.

He always looks lovely and I hate to be snarky but the tie with a t-shirt is very unfortunate.

I'm kind of expecting this drama to be terrible, although I'm not sure why. So of course I'll be tuning in^^

And I think Song Hye-gyo looks SUPER CUTE here. I covet her outfit. And her perfectly side-swept bangs. And fine, while we're at it, her make-up artist.

Ha, Hyun Bin is smiling! *g* The first pic is too cute for words, imho.

Why oh why do I have the feeling he's going to leave for the military service soon?

I have a high expectation about this drama.. the writer hardly ever disappoints me. I loved loved Good Bye Solo... and the cast! Everything seems so perfect.
For some reason I don't find HB attractive outside of his works.. he looks best when he's acting. And Hyekyo.. what have they done to her? Her smile is not as pretty as it used to be.. I want that smile back!

Song Hye-gyo looked feminine and classy @ the press conference...
Hyun Bin, on the other hand, was so mismatched. Especially those sneakers. Why was he wearing sneakers to a formal event?

Anyways, I hope this will be good.

HB looks better on his left side for some reason, interesting cast. don't know if i will like it though. KBS hasn't been doing so great in ratings in Mon/Tue it seems, EOE is like YiSan, so WW will probably have a tough time, but maybe SGH & HB pairing will help.

I think that the reason he looks soo good in some is because he has an amazing face. But when pulled away to show his entire outfit... Ugh. Seriously, he needs a new stylist.... And I don't like that hair. Once again, it looks so hot in his closeup, but... meh in others.

On the other hand, SHG's skirt is adorable, if not paired with the best shirt. ^^

MNIKSS fan that I am, and SHG impressed me in Full House, I will be watching this show. Will you be recapping it, Javabeans?

I absolutely cannot wait, they both look fantastic, as usual, and they look really cute together, but would you take a look at how hard he's gripping her hand in the first pic, the veins in his hand are ready to burst!

loll...if they're that comfortable with each other, i' m sure it'll be evident in the drama....can't wait!!!!!

the story at first is boring nevertheless you can only get a great satisfaction watching hyun bin so handsome face acting so natural and hae kyo face so pretty in any angle. at the last few episodes the story became so nice and so lonely.in short hyun bin is really cute and boyish with a cute and beautiful hae kyo
perfect match!

I can't help but wonder why they're holding hands
(I thought this press con was in 2009...). Errr. Is that....normal? I mean, the women usually simply puts their hand around the man's arm or something.......
