Uh, do we really need this?
Both Le Grand Chef and Tazza were originally manhwas that were turned into movies that were turned into drama series. Now, both franchises are getting a movie sequel.
A rep from the production behind Le Grand Chef 2 said, “Currently we’re busy working on the screenplay. New director Baek Dong-hoon will take this on as his debut film. It will show a different side and new entertaining stories from the previous film.” The original film released in November 2007 starred Kim Kang-woo, Lee Hana, and Im Won-hee and sold over 2.5 million tickets. The drama version, Gourmet, starred Kim Rae-won and Nam Sang-mi and was a hit for SBS last year.
Tazza 2 will be both written and directed by Jang Joon-hwan (Hair) and is currently casting. The original gambling-themed film sold more than 6.8 million tickets in 2006 and starred Jo Seung-woo and Kim Hye-soo; SBS’s series adaptation starred Jang Hyuk and Han Ye-seul and was a modest success last year.
Talk about trying to milk that dead horse. Uh, I think that metaphor got a little mixed, but funny enough, makes more sense that way anyway.
