After sweeping the Korean peninsula away, Jewel in the Palace(Dae Jang Geum) fever is being revived in China. On the 12th, Munwha Broadcasting Company announced the joint production of the TV miniseries drama, 'A Chef In Love' (Director: Hwang In-rei, Script: Ye-rang), with Chinese Hunan TV, which broadcasted the drama 'Dae Jang Geum.'
'A Chef In Love' (temporary title) has 16, 70-minute episodes that draw a modern version of (Dae Jang Geum)'s success story in the modern world. The drama will be directed towards an elegant and fancy mood bringing the universal language of food and love into play. The singer Jang Na-ra plays the heroine as Gong Meng-ja. Yang Mi-gyung, who played the court lady Han in 'Dae Jang Geum,' was casted as Jang Na-ra's mother, and Wiwonluh, a well-known actor from the movies 'Mu Gan Do' and 'Inital D,' as the chinese chef, Jangweijien. They are still searching for a Korean actor who will complete the love triangle.
After failing to get a job as a hotel chef, Gong Meng-ja(Jang Na-ra), specializing in Korean cooking, leaves for Shanghai to master Chinese cuisine. The thread of the story comes when she meets Jangweijien (Wiwonluh), a Chinese chef, and their love and friendship grows while she explores the exquisite combination of Korean and Chinese food to win the world food contest.
'A Chef In Love' (temporary title) distinguishes itself from other dramas filmed overseas and portrays a modern, progressive and self-motivated woman who wins love and wealth for her on the broad Chinese stage. Such contents are expected to attract huge sympathy from Korean and Chinese women viewers who prioritize their success.
In addition, MBC plans to remake 'Blooming Korea' (Draft: Yun Hyuk-min), broadcasted in the 1970's, with a Chinese director and Chinese actors. The story is about a Chinese father who visits his eight sons and daughters who are scattered around separate provinces. The original drama is reinterpreted from the Chinese point of view and displays great family warmth as the number of nuclear families grows in China.
It is especially noticeable that the six billion won production cost was supplied from the private equity fund that was created to make inroads into overseas markets, a first in Korean broadcasting history. A second fund will be generated if this project proves to be a success.
