[INFO] "Festival" to film in Japan?


Park Shin Hye may be saying hello to Japan again after 5 months!

It is reported on a Japanese tourism website that MBC drama starring Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa is to film at Lake Hamana in Japan! 

Rough Translation: 
Hallyu drama shooting confirmation! Hallyu youth drama "Festival" is confirmed to prepare for its shooting in the Lake Hamana region in Japan. The cast and crew are to arrive in mid-May and shooting will last for 20 to 25 days.  Further information will be updated in the coming days. 

韩流ドラマロケ   决定!
地域とともに作り上げる   韩流   青.春.メ.ロ.ドラマ『FESTIVAL』   ロケ撮影决定!
かねてより准备を进めてまいりました、浜名湖を中心とした远州・东海地区を国内外にアピールし、地域観光・経済の活性化を図っていく日韩合作ドラマ   『FESTIVAL』(仮)   のロケ撮影が决定いたしました。
クランクインは5月中旬の予定で、浜名湖などで20~25日间ほど撮影されます。
详细は今后   随时HP等にてお知らせしていきますのでお见逃しなく!

As we all know, Shin Hye filmed her Taiwanese drama "Hayate the Combat Butler" (alternate title: Sensation World) in Nagasaki, Japan last December. At that time, she said she wanted to visit other places in Japan. Looks like her wish is coming true! 

However, due to Japan's recent tsunami/earthquake, we do not know whether the filming will be postponed or not. Let's hope for the best. 


The website has also released a character relationship map:



1) Lee Shin (age 21) is a university student majoring in modern music. 
He is the vocalist of band "The Stupid" and also plays the guitar. He is known for his good looks and for his strong passion for music. However, he is a cold person and is uninterested in things non-music related. He has no dreams nor plans for the future

In the drama, he initially likes a dance professor at his university.

But it is all going to change as he meets Lee Kyu-Won (starring Park Shin Hye).

イ・シン(21歳)
実用音楽科ギター専攻。“The stupid”というバンドでボーカルとギターを担当する。ルックスは最高。口数が少なくクール。これといった将来の希望も目標もなく、好きなギターを弾くのみ。音楽以外には興味がない。
舞踊科の教授ジョン・ユンスに想いを寄せるが、パク・シンヘ演じるギュウォンと出会い、気持ちが変化していく…


2) Lee Kyu Won (age 21) is a bright and outgoing student who was born into a prestigious family, and is majoring in traditional Korean instruments, especially the gayageum. She is a very outgoing and cute girl. 

Kyu Won's grandfather, Lee Dong-gun is one of the top 3 traditional music singers of his age. And his biggest wish is to have his grand-daughter trained to become a traditional music child-prodigy in 10 years' time. Trying to live up to her grandfather's expectations, Kyu-Won immenses herself in traditional music training and becomes a university student who knows nothing about anything besides traditional music.

As Kyu Won's friends are fans of "The Stupid", she was forced to go to the band's concert with them and there she saw Lee Shin, performing life. She is immediately captivated by him.

イ・ギュウォン(21歳)
国楽科、韓国の伝統楽器伽椰琴(カヤグム)を専攻。国内のパンソリ3大名唱イ・ドンジンの孫娘。明朗活発。
十年間、 孫娘のギュウォンを国楽の神童に育てたがる祖父の期待に応えるため、家事を終えた真夜中に、指に血がにじむほど伽椰琴を弾き、勉強する暇もなく国楽以外は何も知らずに大学生になった。
友達に無理やり付き合わされて行った‘The stupid’のライブでジョン・ヨンファ演じるシンと出会い、はじめはぶつかり合いながらも次第にシンに惹かれていく。

실요음악과 기타전공. "The stupid"라고 하는 밴드에서 보컬과 기타를 담당한다. 외모는 최고. 말수가 적고 쿨.
이렇다할만한 장래희망도 목표도없이, 좋아하는 기타를 연주할뿐. 음악이외에는 흥미가 없다.
무용과 교수 정윤서에게 마음을 주지만, 박신혜가 연기하는 규원과 만나고, 마음이 변화해 간다 …

  2. i do not think so, her character in kimcheed radish cubes was also very bright, cute etc like go mi nam/nyu, but they were actually different when she acted them. the way she walked and even spoke for the two roles was completely different etc. SO even if some people are dense and say 'its the same' shin hye will be able to keep it from going that way.

  3. Thanks Karen for the updated information. This is sounding good and interesting. I can already picture the two as their characters. And another cnblue member is joining? Nice. I wish June was here already!!! Can't wait for more info!

  4. the storyline is quite good..Yonghwa's character now is different.He's the cold one..And Shin Hye's character will be captivated first by YH's character.It's the opposite from what happened to YAB.though both dramas are music related, i believe they will do it differently from YAB. SH's character leaving upon her grandfather's expectations,immersing herself in trad.music meeting a cold leader of a band.It seems the characters have different views when it comes to music creating an exciting plot..Shin Hye fighting!

  7. thanks for the updates...

    the story line is interesting although somewhat similar to Dream HIgh..i just hope that the scriptwriters will do a very good job and create something worth watching, a drama for all ages and will be successful throughout Asia...I believe on the tandem of YH and shinhye..Good luck, Festival....Good luck Shinhwa couple...

  8. I think that shinhye's character is not exactly the same as in YAB, here she is a bright and lively girl unlike in YAB where is so dense...with shinhye's talent, i'm sure she will tackle the role differently from her previous work since its a different character...
    i hope though that the production people will focus more on the script and not just on the popularity of the two...also, i believe on the tandem of YH and shinhye, they have great chemistry in YAB and they are good friends...good luck Festival and to the shinhwa couple...RENCE

  9. Jung Yong Hwa as the lead...I don't think that he is ready. He is still too new. He was very stiff in YAB. He needs more experience.
