Starring Joo Jin-mo and Park Ji-yoon's epic drama "Bichunmoo - Drama" is finally going to be on-air in Korea. It took 2 years 7 months for this decision to be made. SBS is televising a new Friday drama "Bichunmoo - Drama" (script by Kang Eun-kyeong, directed by Yoon Sang-ho) from 1st of February as a follow up of "30K Miles In Search For My Son".
Based on the original manhwa "Bichunmoo" created by Kim Hye-lin, this epic melodrama is a tragic love story between a Koryu soldier, Jin-ha (Joo Jin-mo) and his Chinese lover, Sul-li. The setting of the drama is the end of Yuan dynasty, China.
It was one of the first previously-made dramas produced in 2004, but was previously televised in China and Taiwan due to complications involving copyrights between its production, Eight Peaks and the telecasting stations in Korea.
This is the first drama to be initially televised overseas and is coming back to Korea. The drama "Bichunmoo - Drama" with its high production cost of 7 million dollars and long period of shooting in China is going to be condensed into 14 episodes from its original 24 episodes.
