SBS’s period drama Giant begins rehearsals
The first still is out for SBS’s Giant, which premieres in May. From left to right, pictured are Lee Beom-soo, Park Jin-hee, Hwang Jung-eum, and Joo Sang-wook. The cast, writer Jang Young-chul, and director Yoo In-shik gathered on April 2 at the SBS Ilsan Production Center for the drama’s first script reading and rehearsal.
Giant is a special production series that commemorates SBS’s 20th-year anniversary. The story begins in the 1970s and follows three siblings as they grow up, with the focus on “one man’s ambition and love.” (How many times have we heard that, eh?) Lee Beom-soo plays that lead character, Kang-mo, while Park Jin-hee portrays his love interest and Hwang Jung-eum plays Kang-mo’s younger sister who becomes a famous actress. Young actors Kim Soo-hyun and Nam Ji-hyun will be featured in the childhood portions.
The drama premieres May 10, following Jejoongwon.
(I suppose the photo is meant to convey the drama’s ’70s feel, but they really managed to take some very good-looking actors and made them look dated and dull, didn’t they?)
