Plans announced for a Full House Season 2

First of all: DON’T GET TOO EXCITED. (YET.)

Yes, it does sound like a Full House 2 is in the works. But as with all things this early in the process, it’s best to retain a little bit of skepticism so as not to be disappointed later.

Just a word of warning.

Production as an Asian drama: Producers say, “We will cast at least one out of either Song Hye-gyo or Rain”

The KBS drama Full House, which aired in 2004 and earned much love not only in Korea but throughout Asia, will be producing a season 2 as a pan-Asian drama with participation from Korea, China, Japan and other countries. Full House is the drama that shot Rain to fame throughout Asia as a skilled dancer and singer.

Director Park Chang-shik of Kim Jong-hak Productions told Herald Biz on the 24th, “In preparation for making Full House Season 2, writer Jo Jung-hwa has worked for two years. Currently, the scripts for the first four episodes have been completed. Since Korean, Chinese, and Japanese actors will be participating, the drama will be filmed in those countries.”


 
One reason I am trying to take this with a HUGE grain of salt is that getting Song Hye-gyo or Rain is going to be a huge endeavor at this point. First of all, I’m not sure either wants to revisit his/her old role from four years ago, especially when both are trying to stretch themselves creatively now. Second, I wonder why they didn’t think to get Full House‘s original PD back on board, since he’s currently working with Song on The World They Live In.

Oh, and also, what if they get one of the actors — will they play themselves? Or play new characters? And will the story have to be changed if neither actor agrees to appear in Season 2? (Confuzzlement abounds.)

Because this will be produced as an “Asian drama,” plans are to keep the atmosphere lighter than the first series, and to not come off overly extravagant. The drama will span 20 episodes and is looking for an airdate sometime around August of next year.

Director Park said, “Things are looking good. Already a Thai corporation has shown interest in investing in Season 2, and one broadcast station in Hunan, China, has said that they would produce Season 2.”

Full House was originally a soonjung manhwa [shojo manga] by Won Soo-yeon that depicted a love story about young modern people, and earned its actors Rain (playing Young-jae) and Song Hye-gyo (as Ji-eun) recognition as a very appealing couple.

Recently, Rain was asked on an episode of MBC’s Goldfish [무릎팍도사], “When did you start thinking of expanding into the Asian market?” by MC Kang Ho-dong. His answer reflected Full House‘s high Asian popularity, saying, “It wasn’t because of music, but happened to be because of a drama I’d done [Full House],” which showed the bright possibility of a pan-Asian Season 2.

Accordingly, if Full House Season 2 is made and broadcast, the actors will naturally attract much recognition in Asia, and will also have tremendous value as a Hallyu drama.

Therefore, the production company is determined to cast at least one out of the two stars, Rain and Song Hye-gyo, who enjoy high popularity throughout China as well as Southeast Asia. They plan to cast actors from China and Taiwan as well, but have set aside the initial intention of casting one of the F4 members. The director has not yet been decided, and the production is currently in the process of finding a film or drama PD who will be able to bring to life Full House‘s visual appeal.

It would be better if the Song Hye gyo and Rain be recasted again, but I'm thinking SHG wouldn't ...well I hope this works and they will actually produce the 2nd season as planned.

Whaaaaat?

***confused***

So, will season 2 take off where the first one left off? oooor.....What?
How can it be called a 2nd season if its a completely diff story? are they going to keep the same characters even if they cant cast the same actors? Or is just going to be a similar story of boy meets girl, boy hates girl, boy gets into a contract marriage with girl...boy and girl end up falling for each other LOL

I would LOOOOOVE to see Rain and SHG back together on screen because i think their comedic chemistry is pretty much the reason why Full House was such a success, but my guess is that the odds of that happening are pretty slim to none LOL

I agree; I don't think SYK will do it because she doesn't seem to want a "rom-com" actress image. Most of her most recent projects are on the "serious acting" side.

I know I'm the dissenting commentator, but do we really need Full House 2???
I think it was cute the first time around, but I'm not sure it's going to be as novel as it was then. I'm still trying to wrap my mind on what possibly could they do to continue the story (worthy story I should say).

In any case, it appears that this is not liking going to happen so we'll see.

As much as I was an absolute full house fanatic when it came out..this is kind of strange(?)

I really can't see either song hye gyo or rain willing to revisit these roles..theyve both come so far ahead from full house. They also both want to be taken as serious actors now rather than the comedic acting a story like Full House requires.

Also-I can't see the whole "other Asian countries" participating thing working out. It sounds like a project that'd take a huge amount of time, effort, skilled talents to actually make it work..

hope this doesnt end up being an embarrassment to anyone.

I agree with baffomet. I think a Season 2 would mess things up. Rain and SHG have already told "their story." So what are they going to do now?

The whole point of Full House was for them to fall in love. Now that they're in love, what's next? Don't tell me they're going to find ways to break them up again just so they can get back together in the end.

The best would be to build a theme around the "living together" in a "Full House"

You could have actors and actresses from China, Korea, Japan (or any other Asian country) and they somehow are forced to live together and have couples develop that way :)

Yeah, I am definitely taking this with a fatass grain of salt. Nothing sounds concrete and I just can't imagine either of the main cast wanting to rehash this (maybe Rain if he feels his ego has been beaten down too much with his less than ideal Hollywood pursuit).

It won't be the same is any one of them is paired up with a different person... They should just cast a totally new cast or use some of the same supporting characters like the 2 naughty friends, hahah....

bleh i hate it when they toy with my emotions. And even then this doesn't sound all too promising. How can they possibly have just one of the actors? And I dunno I don't think I'd be on board if it wasn't the exact same crew. If they're gonna do it, they should do it right.

i think they said this before too.. waahh..
and it sounds weird that they'd have only one of the two..
then it wouldnt be full house in .. it will be a mixed up full house..
and theyd maybe get other asian actors since its joint participation? ok hows that?
like a foreigners in one house? speaking diff languages?
oh it wont ever be the same this way...

Well, despite your warning, (which I sighted belatedly), seeing the headline "Plans announced for a Full House Season 2" practically stopped my heart. I was completely one of those many, many fans that were begging for a Season 2 by the time I had finished watching Full House (and spent hours on the internet searching for confirmation).

But, after reading your post, I've calmed down and become infinitely less excited.
- Only one out of Song Hye-Gyo or Rain? (And it'll be a miracle if one of them even agrees to the series.)
- It's going to be Pan-Asian?? C'mon, Korean producer people, don't you think that's trying a little too hard?
- It sounds like they're completely changing the story too; nothing like the sweet continuation of the first season that we, the fans, all wanted.
- And most important? I don't even want to watch it.

I feel like this is just too little, too late. Whatever the sequel ends up being, "sweet continuation" or no, it's really, really late to start introducing a sequel now and have it air five years after the original. Also, had this been the sequel that we all dreamed of four years ago, I think it would have generated slightly more interest (but not much, because I really think the timing of the sequel is really working against it) but now, we find out that it's going to be a Pan-Asian production, completely disjointed from the first season, and include (most likely) none of the original actors, which lent the show half its spark? I don't think so.

Too bad, I almost had a heart attack too when I first read the title of the post and images of the perfect sequel that I always wanted flashed through my head.

it would be nice if there is season two, and also many countires from asia are
also joining. By the way, Philippines is also in Asia and in the Philippines they are many Filipinos who love Full house. They are many Korean fanatic. They should also let Philippines join. Hehehe. Nothing. Just an opinion. hehe. But it'll be nice to have season 2.

I totally agree with Jane. It's just too little too late and they really should have milked this cow 4 years ago at the crest of the Korean wave and the peak of SHK and Rain's popularity.

But having said that, I would definitely still watch this if it came to fruition and especially if SHK does indeed make her return to the house.

if you are going to cast just one of them, might as well not cast any one. they have to be there both, or else, what is the point?

I don't think it's a good idea to have a Full House 2. Maybe another serious drama with Rain and Song Hye Gyo would be fine.

ahahha.
You know, javabenas, this sounds like a crash just waiting to happen.
I cannot wait to see what will happen with this one.

Has no one learned from doing sequel dramas? It doesn't really...well, you know, WORK!
Goong S. BLECH.
And the show wrapped itself up at the end, I don't think it really needs a season two. Maybe if there's some brilliant mastermind behind all of this who somehow makes it work, then I'll be happy to watch.

Otherwise, I'm preparing myself for a nosedive with this plane crash.

I hope season 2 isn't going to pick up where the first one left off...cuz they're only bringing either SHK or Rain back for season 2. Or maybe it will be a story about Rain or SHK's cousin or friend? I get the feeling it might be like Goong 2- where it's a different story, but with similar elements.

The original full house was so hugely successful that any sequel will find it hard to replicate or match its success.

" really can’t see either song hye gyo or rain willing to revisit these roles..theyve both come so far ahead from full house"

Totally agree - especially Rain who has so much on his plate with his international aspirations.

i will watch pretty much anything that involves SHG, but i really hope she doesn't do this.

"plans are to keep the atmosphere lighter than the first series"

umm, not sure what they're trying to get at, but the 1st series didn't exactly strike me as being overly serious...

don't they learn from the Goong s which is not as successful as the first one because they cast different people and brings out different story instead of a continuance from the first one??

I guess they never learn from the past. That's why all korean dramas season 2 always suck!

It s way BETTER could be BEST to bring out the old cast, Song hye gyo and Rain!!

Whoa, lots of comment here. I have not watched Full House, but uh I guess if they're thinking of another season, it must've been good. Ah well.

Rain's very cute in that pic. Now why I feel the sudden urge to buy one of Rain's albums? ahhh *backs away slowly from dramabeans.com* This site is feeding me new addictions. Ahhh

I enjoyed Full House back when it was airing... but the excitement has long-since faded. Maybe if Rain and SHG were both confirmed to be returning, I'd be more excited, but the fact that they're only aiming for one of the stars rather than both makes me indifferent to the whole thing. Seriously, it's not Full House without the original characters... it's just a poor imitation or some wanna be knock-off. It would be better if they just completely remade it into a different drama altogether, or at best, a spin off with some of the side characters from the original. I doubt Rain or SHG will be willing to return anyway...

Why am I not fully happy about this? I mean the reason I liked full house was bc of SHG and Rain but now it seems like either chance of them together againis slim, if existing at all.

I think they should just cast different people. That way I won't have to be like "AHHh SHG looks better with Rain!" or vice versa. Whatever as long as the story is not THE SAME and the acting is good I will give it a "Go Ahead". If not...don't waste money. :)

hasn't this been discussed for so long? but i think if you have a season 2 you either have both original leads or just get a new cast. seriously it would be hard to see SHG or Rain starring in it with someone else. also if you change 1 lead you might as well get a new couple.

but KBS just seems desperate, they have had a tough year with so many drama with low ratings.

Are they both a little too old now to play all cutesy? Maybe that's just me considering their image now ..I just can't picture them in their Full House's roles. Well, I'm pretty neutral whether this happens or not.

Oh, that picture of Bi there, he actually looks prettier than SHK, that is if his eyes are always closed.

Maybe it's best if they just like the original series bask in all its glory and not try to spoil it by having a sequel that will never be able to match the original

latest Sina & Mydaily entertainment news clarified both Rain and Song Hae Kyo will not appear together on Full House Season 2, only one will.

too much untruth about their so-called sex scandal cropping up past years has cause an impact.

doesnt benefit fans if they continue with pairings & rumous after each drama of co-stars which most popular stars hate to be linked, rather avoid any fabrication then accept roles with same cast/

i think they shouldn't even do part 2 if they cant have both Rain and Song Hye-gyo.... what is the point of doing another one. the story is going to be tooo different. i mean i love the first one! it was really funny and good story line and the characters together were awesome! but i honestly think if they are doing one original character and then all of a sudden a new person comes in, then it just is going to be a whole new story and not be Full House. I guess it would be great to have part 2, but there love for each other was already known in the first drama it wouldn't make any sense to do another one. i think they are just bc its popularity....

im really sorry if i offended anyone, but this is just my opinion....

Full House season two sounds good to me as long as it is a success sequel to the "hallyu" drama. But that sounds highly unlikely since, more often than not, the movies with a number two added to it is a failure. Por ejemplo GOONG2, GOKUSEN2. . .you get the picture. .

But dramas like hana yori dango had a successful number two so I don't know what to say but just sit back and wait. . .

This is very worrying.
My personal opinion is that since Eight Peaks is doing Hana Yori Dango korean version thats why they all of a sudden coming up with Full House 2 which was technically cancelled. Because come ON the theme for dramas has changed even though 1 was ok, the only story line left it 'kids', and is that not Goong 2's story line.

Anyway, i think they should cast both SHK and rain but just side lines to tell us what happened to them afterwards like Fated to love you (not that i even like this show) did in Invincible Shan Bao Mei. And make a whole new story line about some two other hot up and coming actors.

Wish no more, 2 main casts of FH rejected acting in the sequel for various reasons.
Remember Goong 2 wasnt a continuity to Goong 1 quite a different story by itself, what then can we expect from Full House 2?

The fact remains that full house is associated with song and rain, thus casting people other than them will rresult in flop and big disappointment. Have you heard the Philippines buying the rights to do a remake to be acted by the Philippines current top superstars marian rivera and dingdong dantes? my, you should first watch these two Philippine actors they are both lovely beautiful and great actors. Just you watch and see how they give treatment to this comedy drama, it will be world-class since the network producing this is known for presenting award winning quality shows. This, I say again FH2 should star the original cast song and rain, other than them forget it.
