"Yi San" the next Hallyu character following "Dae Jang Geum"
Although MBC "Yi San" hasn't finished yet, it will air on GTV in Taiwan on the 22nd during prime time, from 9 pm to 10 pm. It is already showing signs of being the next Hallyu work.
According to MBC, GTV has said, "In 2004, "Dae Jang Geum" had record views even higher than those of Taiwanese dramas. It will be the same for "Yi San", which is also a work of Director Lee Byeong-hoon".
On the 21st, twelve reporters from China and Taiwan visited the set of "Yi San" by the invitation of the International Culture Industry Exchange Foundation.
One reporter from a daily Chinese newspaper said, "I'm a fan of "My Name is Kim Sam-soon". Compared to Chinese actors, Korean actors are excellent in portraying details and have various facial expressions and bodily movements. I've seen Park Eun-hye and Han Ji-min acting".
"Yi San" has signed contracts with Taiwan's GTV, Japan's MICO, Thailand's Golden Network, Singapore's Innoform, and Turkey's TRT, and it is showing potential to be another Hallryu work.
"Yi San" has five episodes left, and "When It's At Night" starring Kim Seon-ah and Lee Dong-geon will air.
