Iris releases its newest poster

Upcoming spy drama Iris has had the same poster forever (you know, this one) so it’s nice to see them come out with a new look, just a month before its October premiere on KBS. This image is a little more active than the first one (which was fairly static) and shows a little more personality for each cast member. They are, from left to right: Jung Jun-ho, Kim Tae-hee, Lee Byung-heon, Kim So-yeon, Kim Seung-woo, and TOP.

The action-, betrayal- and romance-packed new drama is set in the world of the NSS, or Korea’s national security agency, and the agents who work within it. With a lot of hype and a production budget of 20 billion won, hopefully this’ll be a better expression of the spy drama genre than, say, 2007’s tepid Air City, in which Lee Jung-jae played an NIS (National Intelligence Service) agent. (Hopefully Korea has learned their lesson about producing dramas around buildings.)

The 20-episode Iris takes the Wednesday-Thursday slot over from My Fair Lady beginning October 14.

I am extremely excited for this. I hope this drama doesn't disappoint! (All the hype with the all-star cast may be a bad thing..? Hmmm reminds me of East of Eden.. but I actually enjoyed that drama for the most part.)

It seems to me that for every picture that TOP is in for Iris, he's holding a gun pointed toward something in the distance. I hope his character is actually more exciting than that...

oh come on kim tae hee! you look out of place among the [email protected] looking cast you have with you! and how come you have the same pose as your last one? where's the intensity of your stare and the secret agent/cop/spy stance or confidence that should be radiating from you? i had the same impression of her from the last poster too :( o well, hopes she acts better in the drama than how she looks oh so pretty & poised here in the poster with the message of "i'm a pretty girl with a gun, and that's that, nothing more, nothing less."

He's so damn fine. I'm so excited for IRIS, I'm actually starting to disgust myself. Since My Fair Lady is obviously less than stellar (at this point, anyways), I really hope IRIS doesn't disappoint, I've been horribly disappointed by like the last four dramas I anticipated, I really hope IRIS breaks that streak!!

"where’s the intensity of your stare and the secret agent/cop/spy stance or confidence that should be radiating from you? "

There's nothing wrong with the Natural Beauty (copyright: Tae Hee Commercial Queen Enterprises) gun pose, per se. The key thing is that, when you put the handgun in front of your face, it should hide it. 12cm face is pretty, but a 5mm face is hood. Natural Beauty Futha Mucka!!

"he’s holding a gun pointed toward something in the distance."

Yeah, he's doing it all wrong. He should be holding the gun sideways and above his head. What would his father Zachard Spock Quinto say? Oh I know -- "WESTSIDE!!!"

Sorry. I'm so excited for Iris youz peoples don't understand! Though I'm still a little worried that, with the kerazy star power attached to this project, there would be nothing left for an actual movie. Then again, I'd watch Lee Byung Hee doing shadowpuppets. So.

Gosh, I guess I am the only one but I liked the Airport in Air City it was a character in the story line but not handled well . . . the problem was the story line the wierd ending and the boring lead actress with only one facial expression, like she just sucked on a lemon ? or too much botox ? I know every one in Korea loves her but for me not so much.
I am very excited about this drama. I like action/spy drama.

I thought this drama was going to be airing around the same time as YunHo's drama ??.. Maybe I got it mixed up but I'm really excited for this drama.. I'm kind of sick of the same old love story and want something new with more impact, I'm hoping this drama will be that something new that I'm looking for !.. Action, Betrayal + Love are good ingredients for a drama ! Also one more thing I love seeing TOP alongside these great actors ! :)

"I am so excited about IRIS that I hope My Fair Lady gets shortened by a few episodes. "

Actually with the way MFL is going, I think it should be extended to a full 20 episodes. When she chooses the butler, I'm sure Dad ain't going to like that!

I'm also hoping that Iris is at least 75% finished at this point. I'd hate for the show to go into live-shoot hell, especially with the film-level production attached to this.

"’m kind of sick of the same old love story and want something new with more impact,"

There's only way this love triangle is going to end . . . with everybody pointing a gun at Lee Byung Hun a la John Woo, and a dove flying in slow motion past Kim Tae Hee's weeping 12cm face to promote the newest Dove soap bar. It just gives me the warm fuzzies, you know? :D

"Then again, I’d watch Lee Byung Hun doing shadowpuppets" then you have to ask me to go with you. I'd even watch LBH standing and doing nothing!

This drama was promoting for such a long period. My excitement is almost over.
I just wonder whether the storyline will not up-to-date or not because it's been like 6 months agos since this drama started filming.

About shorten My Fair Lady, I agreed with belleza here. At this point it might get extended not shorten. haha
Just wish that this drama will come up as good as its anticipation.

@ #3 din

“…where’s the intensity of your stare and the secret agent/cop/spy stance or confidence that should be radiating from you?”

When you read the synopsis of “Iris” in dramawiki (which by the way, may not be completely right) Its said that Kim Tae-hee is a psychological analyst. With this thought in mind, I would say that the least badass looking person in the whole drama should be her. Why? Because a psychologist looks sexy, pretty, but not necessarily badass.
The other girl is supposed to look sexier, and meaner, given the origins of her character. So I wouldn’t compare how simple Kim Tae-hee looks with how sexy and badass Kim Soe-Yeon looks, just because of the fact that their characters are completely different.

While all the other characters are supposed to look badass because they are agents, Kim Tae-hee’s character doesn’t have to look badass.

If the synopsis given in dramawiki is wrong, and Kim Tae-hee is in fact a secret agent, then I would actually wait and see why she is the only one looking more innocent, aside from the fact that the actress’s looks are innocent to begin with. We all know what casting means right? If she was cast with her innocent looks to do the role (whether she can deliver a good act or not) must be because her role is supposed to look innocent. Hence, why she is looking simple.

These are all assumptions, of course, because truth is; we haven’t watch the drama yet. However, the synopsis tells you a little bit about the characters. Therefore, its safe to assume that a psychologist does not have to look badass, which takes me to my point; kim Tae-hee might actually be looking how she is supposed to look.

In any case... I wonder why she is holding a gun at all? I mean, if she is a psychologist.

BELLEZAAAAA!!!!!

"Though I’m still a little worried that, with the kerazy star power attached to this project, there would be nothing left for an actual movie. Then again, I’d watch Lee Byung Hee doing shadowpuppets. So."

@Laura,

"With this thought in mind, I would say that the least badass looking person in the whole drama should be her. Why? Because a psychologist looks sexy, pretty, but not necessarily badass."

I'm actually betting that Kim Tae Hee pulls out her best performance as this character. At first, I thought she was to be written like Soo Yeon from "All In", kind of the innocent, "good" character who loves him from afar. But from the trailer, she talks as if she's right there in the same mess that he's in. Maybe no a femme fatale, but complicated in her own right.

"how sexy and badass Kim Soe-Yeon looks, just because of the fact that their characters are completely different. "

In an ideal world, I would have cast her as the female lead. I think she'll be similar to Lee Bang-hee from Shiri, a female sniper who struggles to move on and falls in love with the wrong man. And in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Iris plays like the last half of Shiri with a new story regarding how the main character tries to move on after the ending of Shiri. Thus, Kim Tae Hee's character.

I'm also really psyched that Kim Kyu Tae is directing Iris. However you may think of A Love to Kill, I think you'd agree that it's one of the most stylishly shot dramas of its time. You could tell he was really going for something with each scene. And the dreamy scenes in the snow and the grass plains were all absolutely beautifully done.

Seriously people . . Iris is full of win!! WIN!!! :D

@ Jadielaw, I was disappointed by Boys Before Flowers (by mostly everything except Lee Min Ho and SoEul), Beethoven Virus (WHY can't Jang Geun Suk EVER get the girl?!?! Kim Myung Min was awesome, though.), Partner (not enough oomph to keep me interested, still watched for LDW), TRIPLE (what a crying shame and a waste of Yoon Kye Sang.), Worlds Within (HOW a drama with Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo could suck so bad is beyond me) and I think a few others.
They weren't excruciatingly painful to watch or anything, its just that, as a fan, you hear about an upcoming drama with awesome actors and actresses paired up (i.e. WW) or a very very popular anime being made into live action (i.e. BBF), or just dramas starring actors/actresses you really loved in their past work and you become SO excited and then like 5 episodes in, you're just like "I can't believe they messed THIS up. This honestly blows." I've had that feeling so many times now, it just CAN'T happened with IRIS!!! I'll die!!! T.O.P!!!!!!!!!!!

And @ Laura, I agree 10000%, Time Between Dog and Wolf has been my NO.1 since I first saw it. Pure. Awesomeness.
I really really hope IRIS is too. =D

Can't believe there are so many Kim Tae Hee antis here at DB. It seems like every other comment there's someone bashing KTH, and that's just for the way she looks in the poster.

As for her acting, yeah she's not great, but she has openly admitted in an interview she is striving hard to improve, and at one stage felt deeply embarrassed about her role in Love Story in Harvard. Embarrassed?! LSIH?! Dude, LSIH was recently voted 2nd most popular Korean drama of all time in China. I'm sure millions of viewers in China didn't find her performance embarrassing at all.

I'm with Laura and belleza on this one, we'll have to give KTH a chance (only a month now) and then we can start criticizing / praising her. I am sure she'll do just great, and prove all those antis wrong!

@tis1,

"I didn’t even realize that Jung Joon Ho and Kim Seung Woo were in this."

Oh I know!! And the original rumor was to have Son Yeh Jin play KTH's character. (If LBH and SYJ did a full length drama together, the housewives of Japan would riot. Hell, I'd riot.)

I mean, it's crazy. To have LBH and Jung Joon Ho as rivals . . . I mean, that's true MOVIE casting right there. Then you add in yet another movie lead Kim Seung Woo (who probably wants another shot at spy thriller glory after the not-so-great "Yesterday") It's mind boggling.

Iris will be glorious. Even if the story makes no sense, even if it's a remake of GI Joe -- dude, even if it's Lobbyist the Big Bang Remix -- Iris will still be glorious. I demand satisfaction!!

@ Belleza

“I’m actually betting that Kim Tae Hee pulls out her best performance as this character.”

Yeah well, I can’t agree on you for sure because, first; I haven’t watch the trailer (btw, where can I see it?) and second; I have never seen KTH’s acting skills. Everybody talks about how bad she is, and blah, blah, blah…. I can never agree on something unless I know what I’m talking about.

The thing is, and this goes for Kobe (41) as well, who wrote:

“Can’t believe there are so many Kim Tae Hee antis here at DB. It seems like every other comment there’s someone bashing KTH, and that’s just for the way she looks in the poster.”

Once somebody writes something up, the rest of the people will follow on it, most of them without even knowing what they are saying.
I think it was in another blog (the one about the last poster) where someone said something about how KTH looked dull in the pic. She/he, of course, has every right to say what they think, and that’s ok. I can’t say that I disagree, because if you look at the pic, KTH does look dull holding the gun. However, what I find annoying and sometimes even amusing, is not what that person wrote, but the fact that everybody else started ranting at how “stupid” “untalented” “dumb” KTH looked in the poster. I bet you anything, more than half of the people that said that don’t even know what they were saying. Some probably don’t even know who she is, others might, but might have not seen her acting (like me) and a very few might have seen her act, but juts for the sake of being agreeable they’ll say KTH looks dumb and can't act.

I think people should just shut up if they don’t have anything genuine to say. The person made a comment of how she looked in the poster; that was it. And the fact that Javabeans don’t think much of her acting (which I believe it to be because she actually knows what she is talking about) was a little push for everybody else to blow things out of proportion, saying how stupid KTH is, and how bad she is at acting, and (again) blah, blah, blah… do they even know?
What Javebeans thinks its only her opinion, and yeah, maybe she has knowledge of KTH's ating, but can't people just follow themselves? Can't they just think on their own? Please!!!

I still wont say that she is good or bad until I actually watch IRIS. Everybody has the right to his/her own opinions. But when things get a little too repetitive, it looks fake to me.

@ dramafreak19 (40)

“TRIPLE (what a crying shame and a waste of Yoon Kye Sang.)”

Where are you?????? Where can I find you??? I must bow to you…
A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y true. Everything you said was just right on target. I mean, what the hell where they thinking??? ALL OF THEM.

If anybody goes and watch “Who are you?” and then “Triple”… (cough, cough)

“Time Between Dog & Wolf” is my number one drama (out of 50 something) Not even my love for LBH can beat it (my love for LBH is pretty strong, the fact that I went to see GIJoe says it all.) I was hooked from the first episode. Seriously, where can I get something as good as that?

@Laura,

"Kim Tae Hee = bad actress" is kind of a K-drama meme nowadays. (Similar one exists for Song Hye Kyo, but there's still a lot of good will to the female audience toward SHK from her Full House days.) I actually still remember the pre-YEH, pre-SNSD days when every other actor/actress thread was "KTH vs. SHK" Ahh, such innocent times. :D

In regards to Iris, I don't feel that strongly way or the other about her because the show itself is already loaded with movie actors. And it's a thriller. I think she's due though.

This is the Iris trailer from June:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFWKm6axvq0&fmt=18

Since the Good/Bad/Weird, I think LBH has found some magic potion to look 10 years younger. He looks frigging incredible here. As for Iris . . . it's not so much a Korean drama, as it is a "Hallyu Event", a la BYJ's The Legend. The PD (same one as A Love to Kill and World That They Live In) is one of the most stylish directors working in K-drama. And you can see it in the trailer.

"Seriously, where can I get something as good as that?"

East of Eden baby (hyun!! Don Ga!! HYUN!! DON-GAHHHHH!!) But seriously --> Resurrection, Mawang, Green Rose, Homicide Investigation Team, Story of a Man

I've never bonded with anyone over how crappy Triple was or how fantastic TBDW is! We should become best friends and make a TBDW fanclub. I haven't really found a thriller drama as good as TBDW yet, I think it set the bar pretty high. I hope IRIS impresses us just as much!
I can't wait!

@ Belleza
(Oh and for those who have not seen either of these dramas, warning, this has spoilers.)

nehhhhh….. “Green Rose” was a good drama, but not nearly as good as TBDW. I mean, I love the whole revenge thing, which is why I really liked “Cain & Abel” but TBDW was done in such a way that everything was saying “this is so wayyyyy possible” and there was not a chance for you to think: “Ah! That is so fake” or “What a load of B****S***” My problem with “Green Rose” was: It was too slow, and the way they presented the whole “Mafia Boss digs you all the way because you saved his life" kind of thing was too fast for me to really believe it. It was not paste in the story, it wasn't given much background. It put me off... anyway, thats what I think.
- H.I.T. wasn’t bad, but it gave me the feeling of a CSI more than anything else. And as much as I love shows like that, I really like the whole drama and mystery of a nice, strong, and well-written story; like the one from TBDW. A lot of people were giving it bad reviews (check dramafever) because (to their understanding… cough) they were saying how LJK over-acted, and went all crazy over knowing the truth. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!! Wouldn’t you attempt over your life if you find out that you watched your father get kill and didn’t do anything? LJK became my number 5 favorite actor after that.
- EOE… way too long for me. That’s the only thing that’s really keeping me from watching it.

O-M-G!!!!! (time out) the trailer looks AMAZING. Frankly, from what I saw in the trailer, KTH seems OK. And LBH looks dreamy. I’ll die of a massive heart attack before I can watch IRIS. I better erase that trailer from my history.

Back to our discussion, “Resurrection” is on my waiting list. I have heard great things about it, I can’t wait to watch it.
Right now I’m in the middle of “Swallow the Sun” (btw is the best drama from the director. I know he is the same from “All In” and “H.I.T” But that’s my opinion.) “Invincible Parachute Agent” (I just love Eric, he is so sexy….grrrr) and another comedy; “Dal ja’s Spring”

The thing is, I just started my Korean phase recently. It was around November or December last year when I watched my first drama; “Goong” Previous to that I was on my Japanese phase.
BTW, the terminology for westerners that like all Japanese things is: Japanophile. Now, what would be the one for those who love all things Korean? Hehehe. Perhaps: Koreanophile? Hehehe.
I’ll just say one thing; my boyfriend HATES my computer. Why? Well, for all kinds of ASOAO* reasons.

@Laura,

"hey were saying how LJK over-acted, and went all crazy over knowing the truth. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!! Wouldn’t you attempt over your life if you find out that you watched your father get kill and didn’t do anything?"

Yeah, that's the thing. I'm in that camp. Time of Dog and Wolf would have probably been my favorite drama of 2007, but I felt all three main characters were miscast. Now, I like Lee Jung Ki (still feel very, very strongly that Lee Jung Ki would have been great playing Joo Ji Hoon's part in Mawang -- LJK's seething, rangy anger would given that part Hamlet-like qualities) but against true sageuk heavies like Kim Gab Soo and Choi Jae Sung, just wasn't there. I liked Lee Jung Ki's film work more than his TV output. But I was also going to recommend Iljimae (aka Sageuk Batman) since, well, it's kinda the same story concept.

I think part of my frustration with TDW was that, through the entire show, I kept on thinking how the cast of Air City would have killed this script. Nam Sang Mi (who I thought was . . . ughhhhh. . . ) was playing a variation of what is essentially a Choi Ji Woo part. Lee Jung Jae (aka My Man) would have played Lee Jung Ki's part with the moral rage, self-doubt, and swagger that the part demanded. And Lee Jing Wook would have easily nailed the part of the story's moral conscience.

Having said all that, the actual story and production work for TDW was all marvelously done. No surprise since this was the writing team (one that's never done TV before) that made the movie Typoon. The story really used all 16 episodes with little filler.

"H.I.T. wasn’t bad, but it gave me the feeling of a CSI more than anything else. "

I think I ended up liking HIT slightly more than TDW. HIT is more or less a 5-6 episode Manhunter show with another 10 episodes tacked on to make a proper drama. BUT, that 5-6 episode arc itself was well executed, and the acting was strong all around. Ko Hyung Jung, instead of playing her character as an idealized closer, kinda plays her with a kind of grizzled, tired impatience that actually reflects somebody who's been in the grind of this work for years. Ha Jung Woo was good here, though he made his reputation as a character actor playing REALLY WEIRD dudes. HIT gave him some proper visibility (saw an Entertainment Relay program on Ha Jung Woo while he was filming Chaser, and they were talking about that), and then Chaser made him famous.''

2007 was a wonderful year for kiss kiss bang bang. HIT, Air City, and Time of Dog and Wolf almost aired right after each other. And because TDW and Coffee Prince aired together on MBC (this is where BTW, being able to watch dramas on TV in a proper TV schedule really enhances one's sense of time), that summer will always be the "Season of Guns and Roses" for me. :) Plus, on KBS, they were airing Capital Scandal and Conspiracy in the Court (which I think topped White Tower in the critic poll for best drama of 2007) against CP during that time.

Honestly, the one modern show (i.e. not the Sandglass, for example) that I think best matches up against Time of Dog and Wolf would probably be the J-drama Rondo. And this is considering that though the love story in it doesn't work at all (and Choi Ji Woo looks lost in the show), the Infernal Affairs plotline and production work is AWESOME. It feels genuinely dangerous.
