I pity this horse. It never gets to retire.
He is a member of Korean boy band U-Kiss, Eli Kim. I read his profile and apparently he is fluent in English, Mandarin, and Korean (whether he’s truly good or not, I don’t know.) He lived in Virginia and then went to Beijing at the age of 15 and then debuted as a idol in U-Kiss. His casting was confirmed long ago but the female lead wasn’t. Hence, the hectic search for his “Song Hye Kyo” started three months ago and ended recently.
Listen to his English below:
This is Jade/Greenly Zheng (Wang Zheng). She’s a total new face to the acting industry but has been in many singing competitions, such as Super Girl, Chinese Idol, etc, being sweetly referred to as the Guitar Girl. She rose above ~200,000 candidates to get the part.
She’s such a cutie. This is her serenading the whole MC Panel. Richen Ren is smitten. XD
She even performed with Wallace Chung at the Year-End show hosted by DragonTv.
Filming commences today March 3rd. South Korean director, Lee Min Chul (Can’t Take It Anymore, Panda and Hedgehog) and Chinese Director Hua Yang Fu (Angel Warriors) will helm the series with writer Yang Meng on board.
Alright, I will admit that they look adorable together which makes me want them to act in an original story instead. Co-habitation is everywhere in dramaland so it should NOT be hard to spin around the same idea without riding on the wave of Full House. Think outside the box, people!!
