Joo-won considers folk band biopic

Joo-won is lining up the movie projects lately, so much that I’m worried he won’t have time for dramas in 2014. The horror. Don’t leave dramaland, okay? He’s considering a new movie called C’est Si Bon, named for the hit ’70s-’80s Korean folk band. It’s going to be a biopic about the band members when they were in their twenties, and first starting out. I can see this being a popular nostalgic hit in Korea, and with Joo-won’s musical background he’s a natural choice. I can’t wait to see who else gets cast.

The movie will feature young twentysomething actors playing band members Jo Young-nam, Yoon Hyung-joo, Song Chang-shik, and Lee Jang-hee. They’re known for their sweet melodies accompanied by acoustic guitars, and have been making a comeback in recent years with a few key TV appearances that led to concerts and an entire revival of the live folk music scene. The members are now in their mid-sixties and still performing.

The movie will feature the young musicians when they were just unknowns playing shows at the live-music cafe C’est Si Bon that launched them (and many others), and will feature the actors singing themselves though I’m sure they’ll get doubles for the guitar-playing. The 1970 period movie aspect should be fun. The hair! The clothes! And the music will of course be the highlight. Joo-won is “considering favorably,” and will be shooting his new movie Fashion King in the meantime.

C’est Si Bon plans to shoot in the coming year.

Yes please! She was an actress that I would have loved to see on 1N2D when he was on because she's all sorts of fun and awesome. Hope to see they confirm or do a drama together this year.

haha, big problem for me too. Other actors/actresses fans usually complains it's hard to see their favorites. But Joo Won fans must question why he never rest. He should be kidnapped and feed well immediately.

Anyway, i'm interested with this movies.

Please take this joo won ahh.. I wanna hear you sing more and more ..
Hmmm.. I think he will shoot this movie right after Fashion King's filming.. He considers movie projects likely because it's impossible to do drama while musical. But right after that, he'll definitely back to drama land. I bet. Please choose another amazing drama projects this year as well dear. I'll be waiting for you back to small screen patiently. >3

That's it, I'm flying to Korea to give Joo Won a smack on the head. Why is he sooooooo workaholic ??!! He seriously needs a two months rest. I know he's passionate about acting but that's just too much, he's not superman, he's got fashion king, a musical, photoshoots, and probably fan meetings, and now this ??? Please, give him some time off, I'm afraid he will collapse one day. Please take care of yourself Joo Won
