The cast and crew for the upcoming C-drama Fairytale (童话二分之一 which literally translates as 50% of a Fairytale) quietly started shooting the drama in early October without much fanfare despite it’s cross-border cast. Looks like the production company wanted to make a splashy press conference complete with a teaser of the early footage. Starring Janine Chang from Taiwan and Lee Joon Hyuk from Korea, the second male lead is pretty boy Peer Zhu (one of the Chinese F4).
The production played coy on the second female lead, but since she plays Janine’s character’s older twin sister, I’m betting Janine plays both roles, hence the secrecy to milk it for a later surprise. I’ve written about the drama here, complete with synopsis. I’m totally looking forward to this, for no other reason that I love Janine and Lee Joon Hyuk! I’ve also embedded the first teaser below as well, so have a look. The drama is slated to keep filming for the next 3 months, with a mid-2012 release date.
