Gone With the Wind, a Joseon-era Ocean’s Eleven

It’s a star-studded lineup for period film Gone With the Wind, but even before we get to the big names attached, I’m already loving the premise: It’s a comic sageuk that’s Joseon-meets-Ocean’s Eleven centering around a team of thieves that works to steal…ice? Fastest. Heist. Ever. (With that plot, shouldn’t it really be titled Gone with the Sun?)

Backing up, let’s take a look at the cast. This will be comic actor Cha Tae-hyun’s (Hello Ghost, Speedy Scandal) first foray into the sageuk world as the leader of the gang who gathers all of the top specialists of the time to carry out their scheme. Considering there’s already a modern-day “Korean Ocean’s Eleven” in the works, does this make Cha the comic equivalent of Lee Jung-jae?

With the film set during what’s called an “ice war” between the palace officials in charge of handling the court’s ice supply and ledgers. Cha’s character is mischievous but also possesses a keen resourcefulness and lightning-quick reflexes.


Oh Ji-ho

Joining him is Oh Ji-ho, who had a pretty glorious mane of glory in his last sageuk project, Chuno, which alone is almost reason enough to see this. The man is amazingly pretty, but in that manly-man way (all the better to market “man kimchi”!) that exemplifies the beast-man label.

Then we have “premium supporting actors” Kim Jung-tae and Sung Dong-il, as well as Go Chang-seok, which practically makes this a mini-reunion of 1 Night 2 Days’ recent supporting actors special. Kim Jung-tae has carved out a career playing lots of memorable quirky roles, many of them villains like Hirayama in Miss Ripley. Sung Dong-il steals scenes left and right when he’s onscreen, always bringing some wacky intensity to his roles (Chuno, Runaway Plan B).


Kim Jung-tae, Sung Dong-il

Go Chang-seok (Quick, The Front Line) will always seem like a cuddly teddy bear to me, with his happy smiles and cute demeanor. Lee Moon-shik (The Duo, Giant) is another familiar face you probably recognize from a half-dozen dramas.

On top of the adult cast, we have two well-known child actors: Seo Shin-ae was adorable and cranky in Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child, while Chun Bo-geun previously acted with Cha Tae-hyun in Hello Ghost (and was a scene-stealer in Wish Upon a Star as mischievous Pa-rang).

The only role that’s left to cast is the heroine. Rumors mentioned Han Chae-young as a possible contender, but for now the only info given by the production is that she’ll be a top 20-something actress.

Gone With the Wind plans to begin filming in September.

I'll watch anything CTH. and having eye candy like OJH surely wouldn't hurt either.
I just realized how small an industry this k-ent really is by looking at all those familiar faces. this project is like a reunion for a lot of them.

YAY! Cha Tae Hyun (whose acting is with Kim Rae Won as far as sincerity goes. Also has the ol', doesn't look drool-worthy-handsome till you see them in literal motion thing - of course, not to say that he doesn't already look smoldering; he does.)

And then Kim Jung Tae! Yay!! I love him! I think after his appearance on 1n2d more people are wanting him in their projects. His acting has always been SO wonderful and comedic timing simply superb. I'm glad that shows like 1n2d give stars like him a bit of recognition!

Totally excited for this. I hope they hire an actress with some real acting chops, not just a pretty face. Just look at the list of actors in this. The show needs a solid female lead!

Oh Ji-ho, Kim Jung-tae, Go Chang-seok, Sung Dong-il, AND Lee Moon-shik?!? I'm completely on board with this one. Not to mention a historical/Ocean's Eleven plot line about stealing ice.

But what is with the titles? Why use the title of a well-known film from another country? It doesn't make sense to me, but with a cast like this, does it actually matter? Not really. But it looks a whole lot funnier than "Gone With the Wind" (1939), which is a big + in my book.

Oh! And I love your choice of photos.

O M G!!!!! What a cast!!! This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun to watch... Thanks DRAMAGODS for such a fun looking bunch.. OH JI HO--OH MY, CHAE TAE HYUN--OH MY!!! ...and those two Kim Jung-tae, Sung Dong-il--who were just awesomely fun on 2days1night, FUNNNN, FUNNN--looks like plenty of bromance!!!... IT'S A MUST WATCH, maybe they shouldn't have a female lead just a cameo each episode.. whadyathink? Thanks, thanks--after the disaster with Myung Wol...this is such a relief...

I saw the link for the man-kimchi hawked by Oh Ji Ho, and so my first thought was:

"Gee, Kimchi For Guys - what a great idea! I like kimchi, and kimchi marketed just for guys seems like a fun idea!"

Then I clicked on a few links.

Hmm. Unexpected this was...

New line of thinking:

"Kimchi Shaped like Guy (parts) - would be quite difficult for me to eat... not meant for me after all, and certainly not marketed for me."

sigh.

No, seriously. I always thought "chong-ga" (or is it "chong-gak" ) kimchi is called that because the radish that it's made from IS the shape of a bachelor's male parts. Or has my mother been having a laugh at my expense for all these years?!

I don't normally go for saeguks but I'm really interested despite not knowing too much about the actors. It sounds like it would he hilarious and from the sound of the post and the comments, it seems acting and comedy won't be an issue :).

Curious as to why they named it Gone With the Wind, as the first thing that came to mind is the novel. Ice doesn't seem to connect, but it's probably the idea of swift heists, as if they items/ice were swept up by the wind. Interesting.

I am loving this this cast. I love Cha Taehyun. I loved him as Concubine Cha in FO and I loved him in Speedy Scandal. I haven't bothered with My Girl, but I think I just might now just for him. I need to check if some good English subs are up for Hello Ghost. I can't wait to watch him as guest again on Running Man. Nothing like watching the Commander and the Lazy One together (especially since they are besties and threaten to reveal each other's secrets one minute, than gang up as bros the next).

Oh Ji-ho, you are one smexy man. I loved you in Fantasy Couple and learned to love you in Queen of Housewives. I look forward to you being all gangster and streetwise and rugged in this.

Kim Jung-tae,Sung Dong-il, and Go Chang-seok, can we get you guys as the three musketeers in this? Maybe be brothers and go crazy like the Malloy Brothers?

Seo Shin-ae, I loved and hated you in Revenge of the Fox's Child, and absolutely loved and adored you in Thank You.

Chun Go-beun, dude! *bumps fists with the cutey*

Lee Moon-shik I'm sorry it took me a while to remember, but you're the best daddy ever (ergo, see Fly Daddy Fly).

I think this will be beyond epic. Happy!!!!

I just keeled over. Best. Cast. Ever (Awesome kids! And Hirayama! Cha Taehyun!!!!). You could fill in that female role with Lindsay Lohan and I would still be psyched. OR you could add in someone like Lee Shiyoung or... Kang Hye Jung? Too much to ask? That's the least we can do considering the sadness that was Miss Ripley. Lee Min Jung? She's also one of my faves.
