So Ji-sub re-enters army training

In order to achieve wartime verisimilitude in his upcoming MBC drama Road No. 1, actor So Ji-sub is re-entering army training. He had been discharged from his own two-year military service in 2007, but wants to brush up on his shooting and combat skills and will go through intensive training for several days.

Road No. 1 commemorates the 60 years that have passed since the Korean War, telling a story as “love, friendship, and promises are preserved” since the war. The drama is a sprawling epic that spans several generations and demonstrates how the pains of war are healed “through one fateful man’s love, comradeship, and sacrifice.” So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul portray the leads, and Choi Min-soo and Sohn Chang-min also appear.

The drama will begin filming in January and air in June.

Just want to say, before we hype this as 2010 Sandglass (super cast, writers from Time of Dog and Wolf, big subject) guess who is the director . . . .

Lee Jang Soo. The director of STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN. So Ji Sup and white pianos? *raise eye brow* *Ave Maria!*

I'm not sure SJS has enough bling on his wrists. I'm sure he could also fit a Live Strong bracelet and a braided friendship thing from Song Eun Chae / Im Soo Jung. :D

LOL @ belleza

Oh well...SJS is one that I'll watch anytime, anywhere, in anything. If it's good, bonus; if not, I don't even care. Just gazing at the pretty is enough for me.

And if there's an argument in a car? Heaven...

@belleza, Lee Jang Soo is co-directing with Kim Jin Min, aka the PD of Shin Don, La Dolce Vita and Time Between Dog and Wolf, and one of the best PDs in Korea today. I'm hoping Kim Jin Min's directing will overshadow Lee Jang Soo's, hehe.

When I read the title of the post I was like...WHAT? NO! And then I was like wait, may be it's to prepare for his new drama...and so it is...I'm so looking forward to this! I liked TBDAW a lot and I've heard awesome things about the writers and director (the ones who did TBDAW, Shin Don etc...not the Stairway to Heaven director). Can't wait to see this!

Heh. He's re-entering because he only received basic training during his army stint. Two years behind an office desk probably didn't increase his shooting and combat skills. ;)

Kim Haneul as the leading lady? Awesome!
I have been waiting for a new drama from her.

Kim Haneul and So Ji Sub, definitely want to watch this pairing ^^

My heart skipped a bit. I'm not loving any man in K industry BUT. With a big BUT

I truly, truly, truly admired SJS acting.

I have a big hope in his next drama but I have a lil bit worried about the script write. I love how TODAW present a new and refreshing breath of Kdrama and my how I LOVE, LOVE thriller or any actions drama/movie BUT for me, I found TODOW's script is not tighten as much as it should be. I can easily notice unreasonable plot amongst the crucial momentum of the drama. But I will cross my fingers and hope the team will do the best~

lol it's kinda hard to say Sandglass 2.0 because East of Eden declared that for a while... and look what happened to them.

But La Dolce Vita's PD... this could be REALLY good.

I fell in love with him from a poster selling cologne or something. Ok, maybe that's not love...

I'm willing to explore those feelings! ^^

Opps, my bad. I thought the scriptwriter of this drama is the one who wrote for TODAW. My mistake it was the directer of TODAW actually. If it was the directer of Shin Don, La Dolce Vita and TODAW as Dahee said, I'm all for it!!^^

Oh btw, was the writer of this drama is the same writer of Takeugi?

His name is Han Ji Hoon isn't it?

This has just become my to watch for list when I read So Ji Sup and Kim Ha Neul are in it. Love both of these actors. Epic war movies are fine for me, but hopefully they don't drag it out.

@anastasia,

"Oh btw, was the writer of this drama is the same writer of Takeugi?"

Yup, that's what's listed on wiki. Basically the TODAW team (plus Stairway to Heaven director) are making this show. Originally KSW was attached to this project (would have been interesting to see KSW and KHN in a serious show . . . but are they amicable?), but now it's So Ji Sup. I actually don't understand this LSJ/TODAW partnership thing. When Road #1 was originally announced, it was going to be a KSW vehicle with LSJ directing, before TODAW's creative time were associated with the project.

Anyway.

Goes without saying, this project is mega. Should be in the Friend Our Legend luxury drama realm. But given the superstar billing, it looks like they're vying for Sandglass level of glory. Choi Min Soo and So Ji Sup in the same show suggests that.

Then again, white pianos. :D

Me 2 too! I have SAME thoughts like other people's commenting about So Ji Sub -- when So Ji Sub will be entering the military (army training) twice and I was, like, "WHAT??!! That can't be! NNooo......" but I am very relieved that he finished the army last 2 years ago (in 2007), hahaha!

It really scare me! (( I AGREE with # 19 - Sue)) Haha!

I really love this actor So Ji-Sub when I had watched that drama -- "I am Sorry" and "Cain and Abel" -- especially, I thought he is such as awesome actor, oh yea! (beams)

Oooo.....Kim Ha Neul??!! Ooo....I think this incoming new drama (on January) will be cool and fascinating like "Cain and Abel", I hope so!

Anyway... I can't wait to watch this drama "Road Number 1" with So Ji-Sub and Kim Ha-Neul!!
