KBS N’s first drama Lottery Trio
by | October 29, 2008 | 14 Comments

Shin Dong-wook (Soulmate, War of Money), Yoon Ji-min (HIT), and Yoo Yeon-ji (Hwang Jini) are taking on the first drama produced for cable satellite channel KBS N, Lottery Trio.

KBS N has produced several of its own films, such as 2006’s Ad-lib Night, the Lee Yoon-ki film in which Han Hyo-joo showed herself to be much better than she has since. However, this will be KBS N’s first drama production.

In Lottery Trio, Yoon Ji-min and Yoo Yeon-ji play sisters who, along with Shin Dong-wook’s character, stumble upon a lottery scam and work to expose the conspiracy. Director Lee Hyung-min of Snow Queen, Winter Sonata, and I’m Sorry, I Love You will be acting as PD, although the actual directing will be left to experienced music-video director Kim Sol-mae.

A production member explained that despite cable dramas’ tendencies to go for shocking and provocative material, this series will present a ligher approach to a heavy subject with a “fantastic twist” and “dramatic fun.” (I’m just glad Shin Dong-wook cut his hair. I know. SHALLOW!)

The drama premieres November 14.

    It’s nice seeing Shin Dong Wook doing dramas again. I haven’t seen him in anything since war of money (which wasn’t even worth watching) and I do miss him. It doesn’t hurt that I also like Yoon Ji Min. I hope a subbing group picks this project up so people who don’t understand korean, such as myself, are able to watch it.

    I normally don’t really like K-Actors with pretty boy look but Shin Dong Wook is one of the exception that’s because he can act. I don’t watch War Of Money cos I heard the ending’s suck but I was so impressed with SDW in CLOUD STAIRWAY with Han Ji Hye, one of the most underrated K-Dramas. It’s nice to know SDW has new drama again . Hopefully this drama will have good storyline and worth to watch.
