Grand Prix teams Kim Tae-hee with Lee Jun-ki

Kim Tae-hee is pairing up with Lee Jun-ki in a new film that reunites her with her IRIS director, Yang Yoon-ho. The title of the movie is Grand Prix and the story is set in the world of horse-racing.

Lee Jun-ki plays a man who is a famous jockey in Japan, who takes a brief trip home to Korea. He and Kim Tae-hee fall in love even as they compete against each other, and the film focuses on the balance of love and rivalry between the two jockeys. The supporting cast features veterans Go Du-shim (Good Morning, President) and Park Geun-hyung (Assorted Gems)

When he wraps shooting on this film, Lee Jun-ki will jump right into filming on his next drama, the medical sageuk series Faith. Grand Prix is aiming for a Chuseok release this fall.

(I’m sorry, but Lee Jun-ki and Kim Tae-hee as jockeys? I guess it could work, but does anyone find the setup funny?)

Isn't he too tall to be a jockey? I'm pretty sure the best jockeys are tiny. Like, Mickey Rooney tiny.

I love you Junki, but this doesn't really grab me. o.O

That has gotta be the prettiest couple ever.

However, jockeys = SO RANDOM. Can they ride at all? If not, it looks like we'd better prepare ourselves for some really hilarious faked riding, LOL.

LOL Yes, it's funny. And I know I'm weird, but I read "Grand Prix" and thought car-racing, which would have made as much sense as horse-racing. ^^ But hmmm, Lee Jun-ki as a car racer? Now, that, I'd like to see.

Kim Tae Hee is extremely beautiful, and her acting has vastly improved, but... I think I'll pass on this one.

It's good that Lee Jun Ki oppa is getting busy again! ^_^ But he's gonna be one tall jockey for sure...if they use real jockeys around him he's going to tower over everyone else

@ Kender

"Lee Jun-ki as a car racer? Now, that, I’d like to see."

Oh, I'm SO with you on that fantasy casting - when Junki was playing a undercover cop in TBDAW, I kept thinking of him doing a remake of Mars or a race-car drama. He plays the rebel race-car driver, of course. ;-)

Anyways, sounds interesting, but I'm much more hyped about Faith, I just love Junki on the small screen.

@14 ockoala

*g* You know, the more I think about it, the more I want to see it. ^^'' Mars is too angsty, imho, but maybe something like Kimu Taku's Engine? hmm, I can't decide if I just want to see LJK as a plain badass car-racer or a badass car-racer with a softer side. I think I need to ponder about this a bit more. ^^''

@ Sere

You're right, Engine is a better remake vehicle in terms of male lead for Junki, Mars was perfect for Vic's brand of emo brooding. Let's ponder together, pondering future roles for Junki is truly a wonderful way to use my brain cells. :-)

The premise sound pretty stupid. I like the car racing idea better.

Is it just me or does it look like LJK is wearing makeup in that first shot? Or maybe that's just his natural prettiness shining through...

Yes, he's wearing a lot of makeup in that picture: foundation, blush, lip gloss, guyliner, eyebrow pencil, maybe even a hint of mascara plus plenty of product on that hair. Doesn't matter, with or without makeup he's still prettier than I ever was. There ought to be some sort of law against that...

And I agree, I immediately assumed car racing, something like Speed Racer or Engine (great vehicle, no pun intended, for him). KTH, though, horses will suit her better. I'm guessing she will be the snooty, inapproachable one who comes from money.

I'm not convinced (yet) about their pairing but we'll see. Does this mean that the IRIS movie which was discussed last year won't be happening? I don't remember hearing if that was canceled or not.

Why stylists put all that make up on pretty men I will never understand. They are naturally beautiful, you do not have to make them girly looking. I hate it!
Love LJK just the way he is......will stop ranting but that is one TOO TALL
jockey.
