Producing A Drama At Sacheon City’s Sinsu-do, All Eyes On It
Sinsu-do (Sinsu Island), located in Sacheon City, Gyeongnam, and situated right at the heart of the beautiful Hallyeo Haesang National Park, will be a production/filming venue for a drama, thus gaining much attention.
On December 14th, a presentation was held by the production company, Appletree Pictures, at Sacheon City Hall, with executives from the civil service in attendance, for the drama “7th Level Civil Service Officer” (working title). The proposal for production support was revealed with the following request, “We wish to film a drama at Sinsu-do, which has been listed as a “Luxury Products Island” (note: this is a very literal translation. it means something like a very rare, treasured island.) by the Ministry of Public Administration and Security. We request for sponsorship of $4 billion won to construct the film set, and also for the production fees etc.”
According to the production company, “7th Level Civil Service Officer” will be a mini-series with 20 episodes adapted from the movie “My Girlfriend Is An Agent” (note: the Korean title of this movie is the same as the working title for this drama), which starred Kang Ji Hwan and Kim Ha Neul, and which was released in 2009 and attracted 4 million movie-goers. The contract for the copyright aspect has been completed with Japan’s ACC (Asia Content Center). The drama is scheduled to be broadcast in Korea and will also be expected to be exported overseas.
It was revealed that the arrangements for the production work will be done in January next year. From February till March, the main filming venues will be confirmed and the contracts for the lead actors will be finalised. In May, the production press conference will be held. In July next year, the drama is scheduled to be broadcast on MBC.
Further, the production company said, “Sinsu-do of Sacheon City has been set up to be the hometown of the female lead role of Seo Won and the home of her parents, and Sinsu-do will be continuously be featured throughout the drama. Sinsu-do will be actively used for the melodramatic moments between the male and female leads. In the first half of the drama, Sinsu-do will be used to showcase the sea and the villages which occurred when the leads are still young children. Further, because Sinsu-do will also be used for the venues where the leads have their free-fall, air transportation and physical training, the “ambassador” effect will be huge.”
In particular, the production company said with confidence, “We will introduce the romantic atmosphere exuded by Sacheon City, which is filled with interesting events, glamorous spectacle, the seas, all contrasted against the beautiful natural scenery. Having revealed all these, the level of awareness about this city will definitely go up. In particular, with the appearance of TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, a best-of-the-best singer at the heart of the global Hallyu K-Pop, this will provide opportunities for tourists from Asia and all over the world to come over here.”
The script-writing for this drama will be undertaken by Chun Sung Il, the original writer of the movie “My Girlfriend Is An Agent” and the drama “Chuno”. The male lead role of Han Gil Roo, will be picked from U-Know Yunho or Song Joong Ki, while the female lead role of Kim Seo Won, will be chosen from Park Shin Hye, Yoon Eun Hye, Han Hyo Joo, Shin Se Kyung or Shin Mina. It was also revealed that Joo Won (role of Gong Do Ha), Ryu Seung Ryong (role of Park Jong Joo), Sung Dong Il (role of Kim Won Suk) have already been scheduled to appear in the drama.
Meanwhile, although this drama will be using the original movie screenplay, showing the process whereby a hot-blooded and arrogant newbie agent Han Gil Roo who dreams of being 007, and a practical intelligence agent who has been weather-beaten by the hardships of life, Kim Seo Won, fought villainous terrorists together and then fell in love with each other, the drama will focus more on making their anguish and troubles seem more real and relatable. The drama aims to illustrate the world of intelligence agents by showcasing the predicament faced by secret agents, and their laughter and tears.
