Cyrano Dating Agency opens its set to the press

Here’s our first look behind the scenes of the new romantic comedy Cyrano Dating Agency [시라노연애조작단], a movie based on the French classic Cyrano de Bergerac. The Korean version stars Uhm Tae-woong (Devil) as the Cyrano character, Daniel Choi (High Kick Through the Roof) as the suitor whom he assists, Lee Min-jung (Smile) as the object of his affections, and Park Shin-hye (You’re Beautiful) as his employee.

The original Cyrano features a large-nosed man who is facile with words but low on self-esteem, who helps a young man win over his love by writing his letters for him. The woman falls for the poetic and witty writer, but believes him to be the handsome young man.

In this version, Uhm runs a dating agency to help those who are awkward in love by coaching them and organizing situations for them to succeed in romance. Daniel Choi outsources his romantic planning to Uhm’s agency, having fallen for Lee Min-jung at first sight. In the process, Uhm falls for her as well. Park Shin-hye is an employee who is a key strategist in planning their scenarios.

This is a setup we’ve seen done before, not only in numerous straight adaptations (most notably 1990’s version starring Gerard Depardieu) but also several modernized versions like Roxanne and The Truth About Cats and Dogs. When done well, it can be very cute.

Cyrano Dating Agency began filming on June 21 and plans to release later this year.

All the leads are my favorites. Though i didn't think that Park shin Hye would take supporting role in a movie given her recent popularity.

Lee min Jung sure is gorgeaus though.

sounds like something I'll have to keep on my radar when it comes out. Plus I've always liked Uhm from Choon-hyang. Hopefully the writing and directing is strong enough to keep me interested.

WOW how more gorgeous Lee Min Jung could be, from BOF to Smile You and now this, she pull of all the different hairstyles really well....

Although the storyline sound trivial but sometimes a simple story could get really interesting under a right hand, so i hope this one would be like that...

Wish all the best for this project... LMJ,UTW,DC fighting!!!

I'll definitely be watching this, when both Lee Min Jung and Park Shin Hye are in it. I loved PSH in YB, LMJ in BBF, and both in Kimcheed Radish Cubes.

And these pics certainly confirm that Lee Min Jung is a beautiful young woman.

I think this movie will be fun^^
Btw, SH took this supporting role due to her schedule at shool (as she only take small projects and bigger ones on her break)
Such a hard working girl<3
And we dont see her photo here, because she came to Japan for Anjell Fm and will stay there for a week

I seriously don't want anything to do with today's headline story...But, as for this one, how cool is it to have the gorgeous and bubbly Lee Min Jung beginning another project after winning over so many hearts with 'Smile You'?!!!

As for the comments left by ?_?. @entries 12 and 13;

Are you friggin' kidding me, dude? While I did notice that Min-Jung certainly had nothing on Goo Hye Sun in the body department in BOF, this girl is seriously gorgeous! Admittedly, the photograph in question does make her hands look freakishly large, but; be serious...this ain't "Lady" Gaga we're talkin' about here, this is complete female-type woman if ever there was one. Sheeeeeessh.....

Good thing they were going for the agency version of it, because Uhm is no Quasimodo (although, I have to argue, the Disney one was cute - although his heart of gold made him very handsome) and neither is he a Cyrano (you know, nose and looks-wise).... Something to look forward to.

In response to the big hands comment-

Lee Min Jung's hands look perfectly fine and proportionate. What you see are long, slender fingers...nothing wrong with that. In fact, in many societies they're considered aesthetically very pleasing to the eye.

In my earlier post, I forgot to mention that I absolutely loved Lee Min Jung in Smile, You. She knocked it out of the park in that family drama, and proved what a superb actress she can be in the lead female role. Her acting chops can go toe-to-toe with her considerable beauty.

and I was wondering where he has gone after Queen SeonDeok >.<~~
glad to see him coming back again.....although I'm not a big fan of romcoms and UTW is more suited for gritty characters (like the one he played in Devil or Resurrection), I'll take any UTW drama for now^^~~~

Lee Min Jung looks amazing. Love the long hair on her. Really grows her up. And she always picks projects with great costume designers because her clothes are always stunning. I've liked all of the"Cyrano" iterations that have come out over the years and "Hitch" is one of my favorite recent movies so , if they do a halfway decent job, this drama has all the ingredients of my next addiction.

YAYAY for PARK SHIN HYE who has a supporting role as same as Daniel Choi, too! =) I am looking forward for Park Shin Hye in there and I really like her since I enjoyed watching that drama "You're Beautiful", of course! =)
Ooooh, It's very FANTASTIC to this drama because Lee Min Jung and Uhm Tae Wong, too!
Do your BESSSSTTT! (winks)

** TO #20 Fadedjean = ........Oh, ah.....That, of course, I've heard about this shocking new (Park Yong Ha had been passing away) but it was very dreadful and disappointing..........=(

Love Uhm Tae-woong.

Lee min Jung looks so ugly. Don't like her. Don't like Daniel Choi either. He is stupid and ugly as well. Who is the main character in this movie? If it's Daniel Choi, I will skip this movie.
