'Spring Waltz', the conclusion of the 'Four Seasons' series, comes to life

2006/02/23 | 1165 views | Permalink | Source

Producer Yoon Seok-ho, who has created the Four Seasons series that includes 'Autumn in my Heart' (2000), 'Winter Sonata' (2002), and 'Summer Scent' (2003) ? all of which made Asia spellbound with the Korean Syndrome, brings us to the conclusion of the series with 'Spring Waltz'.

"Although I appreciate the anticipation of the many fans, but frankly, I feel burdened", said Yoon, who is busy shooting 'Spring Waltz', which will be broadcast on Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS 2TV from March 6.

He added, " I have to continue the ideas that I have pursued from the previous ones, but still, I have to offer something new. I cannot guess, but I keep compelling myself that I got to do what I got to do".

What he aims at is to come up with something fresh and new while keeping the previous works' theme intact preserving the concept of innocent love against the backdrop of beautiful natural sceneries while injecting freshness into the story with the help of new writers and new actors.

As for bringing new faces, he showed his expectation from new actors. "It seems that I also need new energy for this project. As Bae Yong-joon, Won Bin, or Choi Ji-woo were not top actors when they started working with me, it looks to me that if we give birth to new stars with 'Spring Waltz', it will be meaningful".

As for Seo Do-young, playing the male protagonist Yoon Jae-ha, Yoon said, "He has some unique physical qualities, and he's improving on his acting very fast. I think we will do a good job for The Classic artist, which is what the main male role does".

He also mentions Han Hyo-joo, playing Park Eun-young, the main female role of the drama, whose character is "opposed to the image of femininity the main female characters in the previous installments in the series had; she will play a cheerful and healthy character, which fits well to the image of spring".

In addition, Daniel Henney who will play Phillip, "has a different charm that can be delivered only with his gaze. He doesn't have to speak. He has something unique to offer that no other Korean actor has", said Yoon.

He also added about Lee So-yeon, who will play Song, Ina, that she "has a very well-rounded character and she will play an elegant and intelligent character by injecting a sense of innocence and cheerfulness to her acting".

Meanwhile, many are becoming more and more anxious about whether 'Spring Waltz' will continue the Korean Wave.

"I cannot help but to think about the Korean Wave. We have many dramas and films in Korea that are very strong and intense. But, in Japan, more natural and gentle dramas like 'A Jewel In the Palace' ("Dae Jang Geum") or 'Winter Sonata' are more effective. In that regard, I thought I should continue the same tone as the previous dramas in the series".
