Iris (2009) drama trailer

English subbed trailer for Iris, one of the most anticipated Korean drama series of the year. The drama is said to be based on 1998 blockbuster film Swiri (or Shiri), but I think it only resembles the North-vs-South-Korea spy-action setting.

Regardless, the teaser is cool, and the drama shows plenty of promises with a strong cast of Lee Byung-hun, Kim Tae-hee, Jung Jun-ho, Kim Seung-woo, Kim So-yeon and Big Bang’s T.O.P etc. Coming soon on KBS in October 2009.

Felt sorry for Kim Tae-hee (beautiful lady with long hair) though; she’s trying so hard to prove herself as a good actress and not just a beautiful star; but yet again her role seems pretty flat and predictable.

On contrary co-actress Kim So-yeon left a stronger impression with her character… could be interesting if the actresses are taking opposite roles instead.
