'Winter Sonata' Producer Readies New Drama

2005/04/18 | 640 views | Permalink | Source

SEOUL (Yonhap) - Yoon Seok-ho, producer of the popular South Korean TV drama series "Winter Sonata", will begin filming the last of his TV dramas named after the four seasons of the year this week, Yoon's company said Monday.

"We will start shooting the new drama, titled 'Spring Waltz', on Tuesday", Jo Sung-woo of Yoon's Color Co. said.

Yoon's Color is an outside supplier of programs to TV networks established by Yoon, who also works as a senior producer of public broadcaster KBS.

The star producer has released "Autumn Fairy Tale", "Winter Sonata" and "Summer Scent", depicting three tragic love stories mainly set in three seasons.

In particular, Winter Sonata drew a wide audience in neighboring Asian countries, including Japan, and contributed to the "hallyu (Korean wave)" phenomenon, or the Asia-wide South Korean pop culture boom. The drama earned its lead actor Bae Yong-joon stardom in Asia.

"Spring Waltz" will be the first of the series to include overseas locations in Europe or Canada, Jo said, adding that domestic filming will be done mostly on a small island of South Cholla Province.

The company expects it will cost about 5-6 billion won ($4.9-5.9 million) to produce the 20-episode drama to be aired on KBS next spring.

"I feel a great burden because this will be the finale of the four-season drama series", Yoon said. "Like the previous three series, this drama will contain subjects that will arouse sympathy while depicting a beautiful love story".
