Sneak peek at Kim Bum’s training session for Dream
by | August 2, 2009 | 24 Comments

In the first two episodes of SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Dream, lead actor Kim Bum hasn’t yet begun training his way to mixed martial arts glory, but in these latest preview stills, we get a glimpse of some of his Rocky-esque moments as his Jang-seok character begins physical training.

So far in the drama (MILD SPOILERS AHEAD), we’ve seen his Jang-seok knock out amateur boxing champ Jung-chul with one blow. Sure, Jung-chul was drunk at the time, but given his winning streak of 125 consecutive victories, this feat grabs the attention of sports agent Joo Jin-mo. The next step has Jang-seok joining up with the agent to be trained into a fighter; hence this scene, wherein Jang-seok races up and down a beach dragging a tire. (END SPOILERS)

This beach scene was shot on the morning of July 30 in Incheon (which suggests that Dream is already filming pretty close to real time… I wonder how that bodes for its future, given that it’s just started airing). After repeating his 100 meter dash approximately twenty times, Kim Bum waved his hand as he said, panting, “Even walking is difficult now.”

The scene in question airs on August 4 (in episode 4).

    he seems more muscular than i thought.. that’s prob because i see him only as a smiling pretty boy.

    It’s a game! It’s a game! says the chasing dog.

    The first 2 episodes havent been the most exciting, but I have a feeling it is going to get much better. And I must say, the last picture made me LOL. The way he’s sitting reminds me of a little boy, CUTE

    poor kim bum. to think, in his last role as yi-jung, the extent of his physical movement was smiling in approval of the ladies/frowning in disapproval of jun pyo’s stupidity. definitely prefer the running kim bum! heh.

    @3, I thought the same thing as I saw the last picture! I used to sit like that after running a lot during P.E. in elementary school (oh, those dreaded miles!). As a girl though. πŸ™‚ On a side note, at first glance, I thought he had a snake around his neck.

    Awwwww…I love how CUTE he is. I am not watching Dream at the moment, maybe once it finishes airing, I might give it a try. I am extremely excited about My fair Lady and Tamna, the Island.
