PSH in “Iljimae”
We would like to try something we’ve never done before — start a campaign.
The Koreans set such great store by public opinion (more often than not in a negative way, such as putting people down, ruining someone’s reputation, etc.), so we’ll see how public opinion can be used positively.
And we’re not just talking about public opinion in South Korea but the whole world. Yes, that’s because we are an international website and our members are from all over the world.
Our campaign will be called PSH for TJS — Park Si Hoo for “The Joseon Shooter”
The Joseon Shooter is an upcoming KBS drama (scheduled for June 2014).
조선 총잡이 / Joseon Chongjapi
Also known as: The Joseon Shooter [朝鮮射手 - our Chinese translation]
Genre: Historical, melodrama, romance, revenge
Broadcast network: KBS2
Broadcast period: 2014-Jun-?? to 2014-???-??
Air time: Wednesday & Thursday night 22:00
Original Soundtrack: The Joseon Shooter OST
Based in the 17th century Joseon at the time of enlightenment, Park Yoon Kang, the son of Joseon’s best sword fighter, abandons his sword and grabs the gun to avenge his father and sister.
Director: Kim Jung Min (Director of “The Princess’s Man”)
We think this would be the perfect vehicle for PSH’s comeback to the Korean entertainment world. Who can forget PSH in historical costume in “Iljimae” and “The Princess’s Man”? He is just about the only Korean actor who can make a fashion statement out of the hanbok (traditional Korean clothing.)
PSH in “The Princess’s Man”
From the synopsis, it looks like this drama will offer the actor plenty of opportunities to display his physical prowess, of which we know PSH has in abundance. His sword scenes in “Iljimae” and “The Princess’s Man” are memorable, especially when he is swashbuckling in the buff^^ The actor also gets to shoot with a gun – even more exciting!
So, how do we go about managing this campaign?
We can only think of writing to KBS, yes, this is a WRITE-IN CAMPAIGN.

This is all we can find. We actually need KBS DRAMA, so when you e-mail, you should ask them to pass it on to KBS DRAMA.

This is KBS WORLD but it just screens dramas, not make them:
And there is this easy one for KBS America:
You can of course write a letter to KBS Headquarters (we will):
ADDRESS: 18, Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul 150-790, Korea
If you’re writing a letter, write PSH for TJS on envelope and for SUBJECT in contents, write: Park Si Hoo ( 박시후) for “The Joseon Shooter” (조선 총잡이)
We need to move fast, before KBS casts this drama.
Let’s add our country after our name, so KBS will know PSH has fans all over the world.
