The television drama series of 'Dae Jang Geum' is being created into a play.

Nikkan Sports and Junichi Sports reported on the 21st that the staged version of 'Dae Jang Geum' will be performed in Tokyo in December and Nagoya in February.

The newspapers reported that the series was first aired in 2003 from September to March of the following year with average viewer ratings of 47%, in Japan the following year through NHK BS, and will be aired again with subtitles through NHK-BS2.

According to NHK, a popular entertainment news program 'Hello from Studio Park' for the first time invited Lee Young Ae to NHK Hall and had a special live broadcast. Approximately 3,000 Dae Jang Geum fans gathered from various areas in Japan proving the popularity of the series.

The play is a condensed 2 hour 30 minute performance of the 54 episode series and is based on 'Musical Dae Jang Geum' which started in May.

Jang Geum will be played by Kikugawa Rei who is known for her intelligent beauty. She is a multi-entertainer who was scouted while attending Tokyo University and has been active as a model, actress, and emcee. First starring in a play in 2005, she commented, "I am extremely excited. I admire the strength and intelligence of Jang Geum as a woman. I will try to show a different Jang Geum on stage that is just as attractive".
