"Painter of the Wind" Sold to Japan

2008/09/19 Source

Upcoming TV drama "Painter of the Wind" has been sold to Japan prior to its airing in Korea. The drama's sales representative, SBS Production, announced that it has agreed to sell the broadcasting rights of "Painter of the Wind" to Japan's top entertainment group and import distributor Avex Entertainment for about 2 million U.S. dollars.

SBS Production anticipates more revenues from this highly anticipated TV series, for it has not sold the full package, which includes the original sound track, behind-the-scenes footage, and other merchandising rights, but only the broadcasting and DVD distribution rights.

Starring one of Korea's favorite actresses, Moon Geun-young, "Painter of the Wind" is about a pair of brilliant painters in the late Joseon Dynasty. It's a historical drama that promises to show the rich details of an extravagant period piece, as well as a tightly woven plot involving a murder and a hidden identity. The first episode is scheduled to air on September 24th and the ensuing episodes will be shown on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
