I, Lu Zhu, am a student majoring in Korean, and the teacher for today’s Film Appreciation class let us spend the day watching ‘Three Days’
This is possibly the so-called benefits of studying Korean.
A lot of Chinese people are excited about South Korean entertainers.
China’s love for South Korea has not stopped there. On March 5 it became a widely known fact that fans of idol group JYJ’s Park Yoochun gather funds worth about 200 million won to buy billboards on the busy streets of Beijing. The reason is for supporting Park Yoochun’s new drama ‘Three Days’.
There are apparent evidences of how hot the Hallyu wave is in China lately. While it became widely known that of Beijing commercial area these outdoor billboards are on the scale of approximately 300 pyeong, the local media estimating that fans had needed to make use of the cost of about 200 million won at the least. Jamming downtown Beijing, the advertising slogan of Park Yoochun fans ran like this:
‘365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds, We are thinking about you every day. For Park Yoochun’s new drama, Congratulations in advance on the big hit.’
On the SBS Wednesday/Thursday drama “Three Days”, the staff refused to say that it was a drama for men.
On March 10th, the staff said, “There are a lot of great actors including the president, bodyguard, Yoon Je Moon, Jang Hyun Sung, Choi Won Young, Lee Jae Yong so it might be possible to think that this is a drama for men. However, “Three Days” features not only the mystery and fights of men but also the detailed emotional ups and downs of women just as Park Ha Sun and So Yi Hyun as well as their romance, high-tense action and a lot of things to see, as it is a drama for men and women, young and old.”
The staff also said, “Because it’s a genre drama, people may think it’s not approachable but this isn’t correct. If it’s a viewer that liked the Wednesday/Thursday dramas, it’ll be interesting to see a new drama and it’ll be possible to enjoy “Three Days.”
“Three Days” is about president Lee Dong Whee (played by Son Hyun Joo) who disappears with three shots and a bodyguard Han Tae Kyung (played by Park Yoo Chun) who tries to clear his name. It’s another project by writer Kim Eun Hee who wrote “Sign” and “Ghost”. There are three chapters in the dramas and each chapter shows three days of stories. It is second in place after KBS2 “Generation of Youth”.
