Thousand Day Promise writer Kim Soo-hyun tackles two dramas at once
Kim Soo-hyun‘s latest TV series, melodrama Thousand Day Promise, hasn’t even begun airing yet and already the star scriptwriter is taking on another project: Kim recently announced that she’s going to be taking a short break from Thousand Day Promise to pen the three-episode for CSTV, a general broadcast station run by Chosun Ilbo.
I wouldn’t get too worried about Kim running into trouble, though; she tweeted last week that she’d just submitted the scripts for Episodes 13 and 14 of Thousand Day Promise. (The drama is slotted for 20 total.) She added, “I hear the filming crew is working extremely hard on shoots.” In a live-shoot world, it’s impressive — and reassuring — that this drama won’t have last-minute script changes and hastily drawn stories to blame.
Kim has generally written longer dramas, mostly in the 60- to 80-episode range — in fact, Thousand Day Promise is her first miniseries in four years — but she’s written a few 3-episoders in the past. Mostly, I’m just waiting for October 17 to come ’round so I can finally get a glimpse of Promise. I’ve already got my Kim Rae-won adoration and a box of Kleenex at the ready.
