Cha Seung-won joins Athena castmates in Italy

The cast of Athena has been busy with overseas shoots in scenic locales, but apparently Cha Seung-won wasn’t a part of the first shoots. He was the last of the team to head to Italy, which he did this past weekend, joining the crew that had been there since early July.

In Athena, Cha once again exudes a “cold and powerful charisma” as the “Sohn Hyuk” character. Hyuk meets Jung-woo (Jung Woo-sung‘s spy character) in a “historic [?] first meeting in Italy.” (That question mark is mine; with a descriptor like “historic,” Imma be expecting something incredible.)

The character Hyuk appears suddenly while Jung-woo is on a mission in Italy. He will clash repeatedly with Jung-woo over the course of the drama.

Just before boarding the plane to leave the country, Cha said, “I’m about to set off on the long haul in order to present a Korean drama unparalleled in spectacle and fresh stories. Please look forward to it. I’ll work hard.”

The drama began shooting in June in Korea and headed to Italy in July; filming will occur in Vicenza, Padova, and Dolomites. They’ll be there till the end of the month, and then the crew will move to Japan. Athena will air on SBS in the fall.

I'm hating that atomic-bomb-mushroom-cloud facial hair thing he's got going on. It needs its own zip code, that thing.

@gingeranna, haha you're right! I knew it looked funny, but I shouldn't have trusted that the Korean article had gotten it right. Which, of course, they so often don't.

Ah, yes, the requisite overseas shoots. When I watch this drama, the scenery had better be breathtaking and real. I'd better feel Italy. I want to see epic fights in the middle of plazas, with random Italians walking cluelessly onto the scene trying to sell the Korean characters pasta. I have no idea what I'm saying.

@ 2 girlfriday

I swear, you must just sit around all day thinking of incredibly hilarious shxt to say. Ever since you crashed into my life with TWWSWTM, I've hacked and choked on my laughter more than is healthy. Quit it.

Good luck to CSW on his filimg for Athena! Maybe an accident with an errant shaver will eliminate that zip code stache.

How I wish the "bad guy" would dress up like a "good guy". Such a play on image and I would go wild if I see that. Yep, those mushroom clouds gotta go.

The beard and mustache are part of CSW's attraction, at least for me. Slightly sinister and so sexy. AND, he can act. Really looking forward to this series.

yehay!!!! as long as throughout the series they're constantly battling against and outsmarting each other, i'm down for this "historic meeting" - i don't want any cop outs like when Kim Seung Woo's character stopped being the bad guy and joined LBH's side - that was no fun... :P

cha seung won can join the quest with Dog the Bounty Hunter.

i think this might be better than Iris. since i've only seen 2 episodes of iris, i think i might be able to watch 3 or more because of Lee Bo-young.

@Leonardswench,

I would gell him in gelato
I would sigh in staccato
I would sew on Cha Seung-won
Sooner than Sun Ah swoons on
Seung-won's smile like ice cream
File my theme in city hall under nice dreams

Hmmm...not loving the facial hair either, I have to say. Too...um...manscaped, for my liking.

But I am willing to forgive this man many sins (such as that sleeveless T, oh my). I suppose I can handle the Evil Goatee of Terror if it gets him back on my screen.

The rhymes made me ROFL

IRIS was on KBS but Athena will be on SBS. I'm not familiar with how this works, can someone explain pls? Who decides which network? Is it dedicated by bidding? Looking forward to the answers, thanks!

With or without the beard and moustache he still looks yummy ......., the hottest male actor on my list. Love him in CH (city hall). I bet he will steal the whole show though he plays the bad one.

Cha Seung Won doesn't seem to age and I heard he has a 20 year old son who happens to be Sooyoung's (SNSD) elementary classmate.

OK, the facial hair and attire aren't - well, good choices for CSW, but the thing I can't get around the most are his overly shaped eyebrows that he has adorn for the past few projects (really, what is up w/ that?).

But weird eyebrows or not, CSW has this cool, confident and laid back charisma - which he totally showed during his appearance on Family Outing (the only other male guest star having the same combination was Kim Sung soo; CSW and KSS were the only 2 male guest stars that Hyori couldn't bully or fluster).
