Uhm Tae-woong Joins The Best Moment of Our Lives

2007/05/14 | 257 views | Permalink | Source

Uhm Tae-woong will play opposite the female leads Moon So-ri and Kim Jung-eun in the real-life sports drama "The Best Moment of Our Lives" ("Forever the Moment" - Woori Saengae Chwegoui Soongan). The depiction of the Korean national women handball team's performance at the 2004 Athens Olympics is in the hands of director Yim Soon-rye. Eom declared through a spokesman that director LIM was a main reason to commit himself to the project.

Eom is cast as the new manager of the national handball team. He introduces a tough European scientific training method to drill his team which leads to friction between the players and the coach. Eom's character was a prodigy athlete who became a star player in Europe. His good looks and his tendency to steal the spotlights with his showmanship also contribute to the love-hate relationship between the coach and players. However, the team went on to challenge the world's strongest handball nation Denmark at the Olympics in a heroic game which culminated in two extra times to decide the game.

Eom and MOON successfully worked together on last year's "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family") Gajokeu Tansaeng). The critically acclaimed feature by director Kim Tae-yong deconstructs the traditional family in Korean society.

Eom's double role as twin brothers in the television drama "Resurrection" ("Revenge", Boohwal) got him noticed as a potential leading man, even though "Resurrection" ("Revenge") failed to reach the general audience because the popular teen television drama "Princess Hours" (Goong) aired in the same time slot. Resurrection did make Eom a popular star in Japan and his upcoming television drama "Devil" receives great attention from anticipating Japanese media and fans.
