Posters are out for the upcoming Le Grand Chef 2: Kimchi War, which is the sequel to the hit 2007 film that also spawned a hit television drama.
Kimchi War looks like it’s taking the formula that made both previous projects work — cinematic flair and an eye for beautiful food photography — while only being based loosely on the original film (which was in turn based on a popular manhwa). Kim Jung-eun plays a perfectionist chef, while Jin Gu takes over for the Sung-chan role previously played by Kim Kang-woo in the film and Kim Rae-won in the drama Gourmet.
On Kim Jung-eun’s character poster, the copy reads “My cuisine is about pride,” as she poses proudly holding her dish aloft. Jin Gu’s reads, “My cuisine is a story.”
Le Grand Chef 2: Kimchi War is planning for a 2010 release. Watch the trailer below:
