It was a day of mixed fortunes for Yoon Eun Hye and Park Shin Yang plus their fans on 6th April. On this day, the Korea Television Drama Production Company Association had lifted the suspension on Lee Kim Productions, which thus cleared the way for Lady Castle which Eun Hye had agreed to appear in to be produced. But this decision heaped more misery on Park Shin Yang as his indefinite ban continued and his reputation taking another hit.
For the record, Lee Kim Productions who is producing Lady Castle was the one who had caused Park Shin Yang to be suspended indefinitely by the Korea Television Drama Production Company Association last year after they refused to pay his unpaid wages. This also led to a ban for future dramas under Lee Kim Productions to be shown on the 3 major Korean tv broadcasting stations and was the main reason for the delay over Lady Castle as it was kept on the backburner.
The statement from the Korea Television Drama Production Company Association expressed that Lee Kim Productions was merely a victim of the whole debacle (Park Shin Yang indirectly shoulders the entire blame now, visit this link to help lift the ban) and thus asked for the blanket ban on Lee Kim Productions from producing dramas to be shown on MBC, SBS, KBS to be lifted with immediate effect.
Lee Kim Productions representative Jo Yun Jung expressed that they were very happy that the whole matter has been resolved and are now confirming the broadcaster, with a decision expected very soon. All 3 tv stations are fighting hard because it’s Yoon Eun Hye and the high ratings that she brings. The drama will most probably be aired in the second-half of 2009 and is Eun Hye’s comeback drama in almost 2 years after Coffee Shop 1st Prince. Only Eun Hye has been confirmed for the drama thus far but things are going to be accelerated now since the ban has been lifted.
Lady Castle is a story about 3 daughters and the inheritance left by their father. Their lifestyle is disrupted after a poor man disguises himself as a housekeeper/manager of a rich house with an eye on the family’s hidden slush fund. He falls in love with the haughty second daughter (of three), Noh Yura, played by Yoon Eun Hye. Noh Yura is a lady who possesses a goddess-like beauty. She is strong-headed, selfish and the world revolves around her, where all things must go her way. Yet, Yura is lonely and longs to be loved, and for this, Yura is weak in front of true love and is one who you cannot help but love.
