“The World They They Live In” is a “self-contradicting” drama. Despite putting the focus of the drama on the glamorous entertainment industry, in the end we have to return to the beginning, to describe the life of the actors, producers and screenwriters whereby it is not that different from the common folks in reality. Hyun Bin who plays as PD Jung Ji Oh in the drama, has received praises for his “natural acting” and excellent portrayal of his ordinary yet unique role.

The cast for the tv adapation of Korean movie Friend has been decided and it is a stellar cast comprising of Hyun Bin, Kim Min Joon and Seo Do Young.
After a 4 year absence from the small-screen, Song Hae Gyo’s return in her new drama The World They Live In this past week has come under fire from viewers for her somewhat awkward articulation of her lines.
Hyun Bin just celebrated his birthday (his 27th) with a large-scale fanmeeting, hosted at the Dome Art Hall at the Children’s Grand Park in Seoul, on September 27 (actual birthday September 25). With approximately 2,000 fans present, the event took the title “2008 Hyun Bin Fan Meeting & Birthday Party — The Present… HYUNBIN” (what a mouthful of redundancy) and welcomed a number of overseas fans from Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, China, and Singapore.
Conducted in typical fanmeeting style, Hyun Bin greeted his fans, took questions from those in attendance, chatted with former co-stars and other guests, and revealed his official fan club, “The Space.”
Birthday wishes were sent also via video from other stars, including clips from Jang Dong-gun, Song Hye-gyo, Shin Mina, and Jung Ryeo-won. Singer Kim Dong-wan (with whom he co-starred in the film Taekwon Boys back in 2004) was present as a guest, as well as unexpected guests Gong Hyung-jin and Jang Dong-gun, who made surprise appearances at the end.
Hyun Bin: “It’s been a year since meeting with fans, so this has really been an exciting and happy time. With these international fans who came from far away to attend, I hope all my fans have had a special time, and I will continue to show more of myself through more activities and work.”
Hyun Bin is currently at work filming his comeback drama with Song Hye-gyo, KBS’s The World They Live In with Full House PD Pyo Min-soo. His film I Am Happy has been selected to close the upcoming 13th Pusan International Film Festival, which opens this week.

YEG has started the PR part rolling for KBS2TV “The World That They Live In” with the unveiling of the drama poster today to fans and media.
The drama leads, Hyun Bin and Song Hae Gyo had completed their overseas shoot recently in Singapore and are back in Korea to resume filming. The sudden unveiling of the drama poster has generated lots of interest among fans. YEG explained that they would rather release the beautifully created poster rather than just bits and pieces to satisfy the fans curiosity.
Seeing Song Hae Gyo with short hair plus a gentle looking Hyun Bin has heightened fans interest with their relationship and the plot of the drama.
The drama is expected to greet viewers on 27th October.
>>Seeing the poster… makes me anticipate the drama even more. 😀
orean actress Song Hae Gyo will return to the small screen for the first time in four years after being confirmed as the female lead in KBS2TV drama, “The World That They Live In”. Hyun Bin will play her love interest.
Since “Full House” in 2004 with Rain, Song Hae Gyo has not appeared in any dramas but concentrated on making movies like “Blue Alert” and “Hwang-Jini”. The new drama will be directed by Pyo Min Soo and viewers are concerned whether he can replicate his rating success from “Full House”.
And just like SBS drama “On Air”, “The World That They Live In” will also show viewers how television dramas are produced. According to someone from the production team, it will be different from “On Air” which focused more on the lives of directors, cast, etc. “The World That They Live In” however concentrates more on how a drama is being made from start till the end.
Song Hae Gyo plays a female producer who has immense confidence and will play opposite Hyun Bin who is a television producer himself in the drama. The drama will show viewers the conflicts that goes into producing dramas and the tireless work that production staff has to go through. Talented Korean actress Bae Chong Ok has also been confirmed for the drama besides them.
The drama starts filming in June and will be shown in November.
>> Glad to know that Hyun Bin’s going to have another drama and his leading lady’s Song Hye Gyo… hope that this will be a good drama… ^^
