‘Of course, they’re the kings of Hallyu!’
KBS 2TV’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Poseidon’, which stars Asia’s biggest Hallyu stars TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho(25) and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon(24), has been receiving a heated response overseas.
With two episodes left, ‘Poseidon’ has signed contracts for publication rights with seven countries in Asia such as Japan, China and Taiwan. Such contracts are usually signed after a drama has finished airing, but this is not the case for ‘Poseidon’ thanks to U-Know Yunho and Choi Siwon.
A representative of the production company stated, “The two stars’ appearance in the drama became a hot topic, even before the drama aired. Japan was the first country to sign a contract with us, and we’ve reached an agreement to export to other countries such as China with good terms,” and “The two stars’ immense popularity overseas has helped, not only export this drama, but also advertise it.“
Choi Siwon’s ‘A Letter to Parents(2005)’, ‘Oh My Lady(2010)’, ‘Athena:Goddess of War(2011)’ and U-Know Yunho’s ‘Heading to the Ground(2009)’ have all received great responses from overseas broadcasting companies.
