Iris takes temporary break between overseas shoots
Actress Kim Tae-hee is taking advantage of a brief break to focus on getting (more) into shape for her role in the big-budget spy-action series Iris [아이리스]. She’s not a stranger to action shoots, having done wire work and fight scenes in some of her previous projects (Nine-Tailed Fox, Fight), but is taking care to keep fit to avoid injury.
The production recently wrapped up its shoots in Japan, and has now returned to Korea. The cast will get a brief respite before jetting off for more location filming in Turkey in mid-May. (The scripts are not yet complete for the Turkey shoots.)
I must be the only one who’s not excited for Iris, despite all the hype and the money and the big-name stars. Yes, I am looking forward to seeing Lee Byung-heon (The Good, The Bad, The Weird) again, but I figure I can always catch him in films. But maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Aside from Kim and Lee, the drama also stars Kim Seung-woo (How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor), Big Bang’s Top, Kim So-yeon (Gourmet), and Yoo Min (aka Fueki Yuko; Yoo Min is her Koreanified name).
Iris airs in September.
