Drama series The Musical begins filming

The drama series The Musical entered its first shoots on July 4, and here are stills of two if its stars, Gu Hye-sun (Boys Before Flowers) and Ok Joo-hyun (the musical Cats).

The first shoot had aspiring musical actress Go Eun-bi (Gu Hye-sun) watching “stage diva” Bae Kang-hee (Ok Joo-hyun) give an impassioned performance on stage. As she watches Kang-hee, enraptured with the musical, Eun-bi makes a decision to head closer to her dream.

The scene was actually filmed at a real live performance. Prior to the shoot, the producers had been in search of a real musical from which it could use insert footage, and requested permission from a successful show, Maria Maria. The musical was happy to agree, given that The Musical is a series centered in their world. As a result, Maria Maria‘s lead actor Jo Ji-hoon also got screen time in the drama series.

To play the part of the audience, approximately 100 extras were used as Ok Joo-hyun took the stage to sing the title song from Maria Maria.

The drama features the “fiery passion and the romance of producers, songwriters, and actors who team together to make the best possible musical” and will include scenes shot in New York’s Broadway. The drama will air later this year.

I'm probably the only one out there, but I'm not a fan of Gu Hye-sun. I don't care for her acting style. Sounds like she's a very creative individual, but I'll probably skip this one.

I love anything with good music.Musical drama series is a change from the usual. Look forward to this and to GHS playing a different role. I thought she did a good job of acting as the character was written in BOF.

I'm glad they're putting an actual Musical Group into the drama (even if in clips). Ebert gives a thumbs up!

Not a fan of Gu Hye-Sun couldn't stand her in BOF but I really like the sound of this drama and that still actually gives me hope that maybe I'll like her in this drama. Shall be waiting to see more about this drama :)

Sounds exciting! Hope it doesn't disappoint.... Also, hoping the drama will have really nice songs since it's about music. How about cameos from the many boyband singers who are branching into musicals? That should bring in some hype and more eye candy =)

I've only seen GHS in the royal screwup that was BOF so maybe that makes me a little biased, but all her projects sound so...blah. Think i'm gonna skip this one too.

I have no idea why but I really like Goo Hye Sun. I don't think 꽃보다 남자 did her justice. Hopefully she'll be able to bring all the haters to the other side with this drama. =)

Finally my queen returns! From the tone of some remarks, you'd think that BOF was a collosal failure instead of the runaway sensation that it was...? As I recall, it seems as if they gave out one of the top awards for Goo Hye Sun carrying the aforementioned runaway hit on her tiny little shoulders. I don't believe I've ever heard any industry insider, of any age or peer group utter a single negative comment regarding this lady's abilities or her considerable likability. Interesting....

There's a lot of dramas to watch out for this next half of 2010.. the musical definitely tops my list mainly because of Goo Hye Sun.. she's really talented and pretty. It'll be a delight to watch her on-screen again =D and btw, lovin' her hair extensions!
