2 hundred million won per episode (~US$200,000), beats "The Sun and the Moon"
Japanese fans still visit the set
'2 years was nothing, Lee Joon-gi's power!'
Actor Lee Joon-gi proved his popularity once again. It's like the two years he'd been gone in National Service didn't even matter. The foreign responses for MBC drama "Arang and the Magistrate" proves this.
MBC revealed "Arang and the Magistrate" was sold to Japan for the highest bid per episode on the 28th. The exact number can't be revealed but it's about 2 hundred million per episode. This number beats "The Sun and the Moon" which cost about one hundred million per episode.
It seems Lee Joon-gi had a lot to do with it. Although the relations between Korea and Japan has turned sour lately regarding the 'Dok-do' issue but Japanese fans still travel all the way to Milyang in Kyeongsang-do to see Lee Joon-gi. He is smiling about it. He has arranged for a group dinner to tighten the relationship between staff and crew.
