"Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin" and four other historical dramas to launch in Japan

2008/04/10 | 502 views | Permalink | Source

KBS is planning to launch "Tears of the Dragon", "King and Rain", "The Age of Warriors", and "Immortal Admiral Yi Sun-shin" to Japan, and is having talks at a fair in Cannes in France, MIPTV 2008.

The usual dramas that launch in Japan have famous stars or are in the present times, so this is an unusual result. It broke the view that historical dramas are hard to export because of differing interpretations of the past.

The team leader of KBS Global Strategies said, "This proves that Japan is becoming more interested in Korea's historical dramas and our history. We expect the four dramas to continue the flow of Hallyu (Korean Wave) after "Winter Sonata"."

KBS also sold the documentary "Asian Corridor in Heaven" and the Insight Asia series "The Land of Man" to an Arab satellite TV station.
