Jeremy is back, y’all! Okay, maybe not, but the musician (and sometimes actor) who played him is!
Yesterday it was announced that Lee Hong Ki of FT Island was cast as the lead in a new movie, “Our Heaven.” Now, this is just a working title, so expect it to change, but the story line is pretty set in stone. It appears Our Heaven is about an idol who is, shall we say, difficult to work with and doesn’t know his right foot from his wrong foot. This eventually leads him to performing community service at a hospice where he learns the wrongness of his ways and turns around and returns to his love of music.
At least that is what we have learned so far. Needless to say, I think this is a part Hong Ki can portray. I haven’t seen his most recent film, Noriko Goes to Seoul, but let me just say that Jeremy in You’re Beautiful is one of the most amazing portrayals of an idol in all of ever. If he can continue to bring that much personality and sheer amazingness to this new idol he is portraying, I know this will be an amazing movie.
As is, I have high hopes for Our Heaven, which is set to film starting next month, September, and will premier sometime in 2013 in both South Korea and Japan. Lets just hope the world doesn’t end before we get to see Hong Ki on the big screen!
