The rocker ladies of I Am Legend

These are much more fun than the first set of stills from I Am Legend, which showed series lead Kim Jung-eun as a posh city wife. She starts out as a “Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law,” which is a description in Korean that immediately evokes the image of a well-maintained wife; Cheongdam-dong is an upscale neighborhood of Seoul, so the term is similar to saying “Park Avenue stay-at-home-wife.”

But her character soon leaves that world behind, and here’s a look at the women who comprise the rock band she fronts. The drama makes it a point to note that all four actresses — Kim Jung-eun, Hong ji-min, Jang Shin-young, and Juni — decided to act without doubles and therefore perform everything themselves.

To that end, each actress has been immersed in individual music rehearsals since signing on to the drama. The four form the “Comeback Madonna Band” (erm, huh?) and use music to help overcome personal struggles. The drama’s musical director is Lee Jae-hak of Take Off and the pop-music-world-set 200 Pound Beauty.

I Am Legend premieres Monday, August 2, on SBS.

 
More stills:

At least the practice of playing live won’t be entirely foreign to Kim Jung-eun (Le Grand Chef 2), who has performed occasionally on her music talk program Chocolate:

 
Of the four, Juni (IRIS) probably has the most (and most relevant) musical experience, having fronted indie female rock band Bella Mafia. She also acted in the music-themed Sky and Ocean.

 
Hong Ji-min (Style) has acted in several stage musicals, including a 2009 production of Dreamgirls:

 
Jang Shin-young (Winter Bird) plays band manager and drummer:

No wonder KSA dropped her role.

They look so awful and show nothing as "LEGEND".

I totally dig the concept of ajummas-turned-into-rock stars.
But let's say it the cast is attractive ! I'd loooove to see a drama or film on the same concept with some actuel pojangmacha-ajummas with the long flower-patterned skirts on stage giving one hell of a representation.

I'm digging their look but it's sooo not rock star. It's a bit embarrassing for them to call it that (though maybe I got the wrong impression). Anyways, I'll look forward to it, only a few weeks to go~

to the people who's saying that they're too glittery and shimmery for a rock star, I think you can squeeze them into the Glam Rock sub genre, which literally encompasses the concept of glitters, metal and flamboyant hair style!

I love stories like this one where the repressed wife breaks out of her captivity and reclaims herself, leaving behind bad mouthing jaws of disdain. Sounds delicious! Can't wait for the fun!

I am looking forward to this.

On the comments re the costume, this is probably rock-band ahjumma style, with all the blingsm, glitters, sheen and shine. Remember, they're not supposed to be in their teens or 20's, so this is their take on the rock band... and I am loving it.

Looking forward to this, looks like a lot of fun and hopefully some memorable ( in a good sense) musical performances.

The stills remind me of Kanjani8's music video of Osaka Obaachan Rock, haha. But definitely good and refreshing to look at.

I thought they will be playing in a band, and not in cabaret....
Geez...what the hell with "rockstar" word....
That's not style of the rockstar....
The costume designer really really need to look up the word rockstar in dictionary.
Rockstar is all about funky, mix-and-match, freedom....
Wth with those shiny dresses....
*sigh*

For some reason, KJE seem a better choice than KSA.

Can feel the dynamic working among these 4 ladies.

Will surely watch this one.

Their outfits are screaming ''soul sistahs'' more than rocker-chicks. Still, it's cute.

So let's see who we have here:
Mariah Carey
Beyonce Knowles
Aretha Franklin
...and er, Diana Ross?

Must say Jang Shin-young looks the best in her Diana Ross getup.
