"The Palace" Season II gets a new name

2006/11/21 | Permalink | Source

The new drama by Director Hwang In-roi, "The Palace II" ("Princess Hours 2")got itself a new name: "The Palace S" ("Prince Hours").

"To put the copyrights issue out of our way, we need a new title for our drama, which will also have a new cast and a new story", said GROUP 8, the producer of "The Palace S" ("Prince Hours"), whose separation from Eight Peaks generated a copyrights issue because of the similarity of its new drama's title and cast to those of the original. To resolve the issue, GROUP 8 decided to come up with another drama, which will only use "The Palace" as a backdrop but will still showcase Korea as a constitutional monarchy.

"The Palace S" ("Prince Hours") means "a new start, a special story, a spin-off (the content of the new drama will be different from that of the original), and the secret surrounding the bloodline of the hero, who will be played by Se7en.

The new drama does not only boast an explosive cast (Se7en, Huh Yi-jae, Kang Doo, and Park Shin-hye); it likewise welcomes new faces. (Initially, some members of the original cast Kim Hye-ja, Yoon Yoo-sun, Park Chan-Hwan, and Lee Yoon-ji were expected to appear as well in the new drama.) Myung Se-bin will play Empress Hwa-In, who takes in Lee, Hu (played by Se7en), a delivery man at a Chinese restaurant, while Oh Mi-hee will play Empress Dowager.

The mother of Lee, Joon (Kang Doo), the second successor to the Emperor, will be played by Yoon Ye-hee, and the owner of the Chinese restaurant where Lee, Hu used to work will be played by Lee Ki-young.

"The Palace S" ("Prince Hours") will start its broadcast on January 10, 2007, over MBC TV.
