New fantasy web series casts Seo Hyo-rim, SS501’s Kim Kyu-jong

Seo Hyo-rim (The World They Live In) and SS501 member Kim Kyu-jong have been cast to act together in something that has me curious — a “web toon drama” (a drama that is based on a manhwa) that mixes animation with live action.

The fantasy series is called SETI [세티], which stands for Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, and is the latest work of writer Yoon Tae-ho, who is famous for his manhwa Ikki [이끼]. Seo Hyo-rim and Kim Kyu-jong play a couple who are a part of an alien-watch club, and the production will enter filming this week. The series will be released online every Tuesday and Friday beginning October 6, for a total of 16 episodes.

Interesting concept, if they can pull it off…!

Seo Hyo-rim is pretty! Wish Hyun Bin had gotten with her instead, sigh.

So the series will be released online? Do international audiences get to watch it online too?

Hmm, that sounds really interesting, actually...
Also, did you know SETI is a real group? My friend had their screen-saver on her computer for years, supposedly installing it lets you see it scan for alien life forms in real-time...

Alien watch club!? LOL. Oh, I don't know why, but hearing of those things always seems funny to me.

Anyways, anyways.... This story sounds amusing... except... Kyujong? I always thought Hyunjoon would be the next member to start acting. I don't mind though. Kyujong comes in 2nd place in my favorite members in SS501, right after Hyunjoong. (Except for days when Jungmin takes #2)

Hopefully he did not take lessons from his leader.... or else if he took acting lessons from HyunJoong and we get blank facial expressions, I'll pretty much die more from laughter.

Kyujong: Hyung... I need help. I don't know how to act angry.
HYunJoong: Squint your eyes while making them big. Lift the side of your mouth while looking like you're grinding your teeth.

Kyujong: Hyung, how do I look fustrated?
Hyunjoong: Again, squint your eyes while making them big and your eyes are gonna pop out. Lift the side of your mouth while looking like you're grinding your teeth.

Kyujong: Hyung, I'm nervous. Advice?
Hyunjoong: Just look like a dead fish. I did that and I won an award at the Seoul International Drama Awards~

LOL at the comment above. I agree. Hyunjoong was not the best actor but I absolutely adore Kyujong. I hope he does well!

Combining it with animation sounds really interesting! Any idea who is hosting the videos?

I hope Kyujong would be a better actor than Hyunjoong was. Otherwise, we're in for yet another painful acting..

LOL... I hope he is not another Kim Hyun Jung -- I had to fast forward most second part of Boys Over Flower because of his poor acting. The only thing that saved that drama is the Soeul couple.

As hilarious as I find Hyun Joong, I really hope he doesn't give acting advice to his dongsaeng. It was painful to watch.

@ 11: Soeul and LMH. Or I don't know how I would have gotten through that drama. Seriously got to stop watching "indie" productions - totaly ruins me for silly, fun stuff.

Hm...

Has anyone ever heard of the Suzumiya Haruhi Series?

They're a series of light novels.

Not to mention it was an anime too.

Oops* Sorry forgot that there are anime haters out here...

Anyways...it sounds a lot like it...

Just check the plot out =O

@Kim:

Owning the first novel and watching part of the series, I'd have to say that the only similarities is the fact that both are related to Aliens and until more information is given about SETI, it's hard to say that both Ikki and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are "a lot" like each other..

-spoiler-

Haruhi is considered a "God" or a person with powers who is unaware of her own powers. She is infatuated with Aliens and unusual things, and because of her sarcastic classmate (whose name I forgot) she decided to create the S.O.S brigade, and because she wished for espers, time-travelers, etc. they came to exist... and they all happen to be part of the club that Haruhi created since she made them join. And all of these aliens don't know what Haruhi might do with her powers, so they are keeping close to her and watching her... and etc. And everyone is in high school. And it's implied that Haruhi "created the world", and etc.

Again, unless in SETI the characters are in school, someone has super god-like powers who created the world and aliens, and there are aliens from organizations watching over- it's hard to say they are [that] similar ^^;;;

So glad to see that KyuJong is getting some screentime - he's been talking about wanting to act in a drama for ages...and I think he will turn out to be a better actor than HyunJoong, so it should be fun to see how it goes!!
