Tele Cinema Project

I’ve heard a lot about the Tele Cinema Project (텔레시네마). It’s time to delve deeper into this and find out more. What is this telecinema project that everyone is talking about?

The “telecinema” project is a Japan-Korea joint production (Japan’s Asahi TV and Korea’s SBS) where each 120-minute made for TV movies will be aired on television in Korea (via SBS) and in cinemas in Japan. In Korea, they will be aired in two one-hour episodes. Hence, you get the term tele-cinema! Staying true to it being a joint-venture, each installment has a Korean producer and Japanese screenwriter.

It has been reported that there will be a total of ten projects which make up the Telecinema omnibus, and some of them staring famous boy band group members namely TVXQ‘s Hero Jaejoong, and Big Bang‘s TOP and Seung-ri. Now, i’m sure you’ve caught whiff of those! Other famous stars involved are Kang Ji-hwan, Kim Ha-neul, Lee Ji-ah, Ahn Jae-wook, Kang Hye Jung and Daniel Henney.

The Tele Cinema episodes / films will be aired simultaneously in both countries.

The below (though not comprehensive) is a list of projects under the TeleCinema omnibus.
