Kim Hee-sun’s Faith up for a 2011 premiere

The high-budget drama production of Faith is going forward despite the loss of its star Lee Jun-ki to military service. (Lee had been cast, but was forced to drop out.) Kim Hee-sun, however, is still onboard, and the 30 billion won project (which seems insanely high for a drama series) will be produced in 3D.

Philip Lee (Story of a Man) is also onboard, but the lead character is still up for grabs. A “famous Hallyu star” is purportedly in contention.

Faith is a fantasy medical sageuk that deals with Oriental medicine in the Goryeo era. Definitely a lot of interesting things to mix into one project. Directing is PD Kim Jong-hak, who made notable use of computer graphics in the fantasy-sageuk drama Legend. According to once production source, they are using 3D filming techniques in order to perfect the visual effects. The drama is planning to hold its production press conference and begin filming in October.

Faith doesn’t yet have a broadcast station or a timeslot, but will probably air next year. Initially set to be an SBS show, it now has a strong chance of going with MBC instead, according to one rep with MBC’s drama department, who said that chances are good. They are, however, proceeding carefully in light of the enormous budget and the considerations that come therewith.

Hmmmm given that MBC spent so much on Road Number One... shouldn't they give this one VERY careful thought?

maybe they will avoid the wed-thurs timeslot and go for the mon-tues one...though i believe Playful Kiss may just be the thing to break the curse.

anyways, I really want to see this drama! I can just imagine acupuncture needles being flung around!

"A “famous Hallyu star” is purportedly in contention."

Yoo Seung Ho, I'm looking at you. ;) Doogie Howser, NK (Noona Killer)

Wouldn't be surprised if they make a big pitch to Kim Myung Min or Cha In Pyo.

Yoo Seung Ho may be a little too young, but I'm all for it. As long as they also cast Kim So Eun to play opposite him. Better yet, they might as well have Kwon Sang Woo be in this Kdrama as well. It'd be interesting to see him in a historical Kdrama, plus all for of them will reunite after 'SAD LOVE STORY'! :D

Kim Hee-sun, I'm convinced you sold your soul to the devil.

How on earth do you look exactly the same as you did in the nineties??

That's just wrong. And purrrty.

It's because it's in our genes. We "cough, cough" asians may have a smaller physique but we have the youth factor.

Seriously why does everyone talking about BB cream so much. It's not a miracle worker.

She's still gorgeaus. Though it's scary to stare at her eyes sometimes.

Ah, yes, Kim Myungmin or Cha In Pyo will be awesome.
Or...Song Il Gook? He needs to bounce back after the flop of A Man Called God.
