Super Junior’s Siwon and Donghae to begin filming for their Taiwanese drama


After making an announcement almost two years ago, Taiwanese cable station ‘Gala Television‘ (GTV) has confirmed that filming for their new 13 episodes drama, “Glamorous Challenge“, will commence on March 31st! The Taiwanese drama attracted international ELF attention after it was revealed that Super Junior members Donghae and Choi Si Won were casted for it.

Since it’s been put on the backburner for two years, most of the original cast and director have left the production. But thankfully, Si Won and Donghae are still in it and they will be acting alongside Taiwanese actresses, Ivy Chen Yi Han (陳意涵) and Bianca Bai Xin Hui (白歆惠).

Niu Cheng Ze (鈕承澤) who was to have directed the drama, now becomes the producer while Feng Jia Rui (馮家瑞) will take over the director’s seat.

Despite their top A-list billing, both of them have asked to be treated like everyone else.

Though they’ll be staying in Taiwan for four months, they haven’t asked for any special requests, like staying in hotels and extra security.

“Glamorous Challenge” is a live-action adaptation of a Japanese manga called “Skip Beat“, and it’s about a girl, Kyoko (Ivy) who gets betrayed by her long-time boyfriend. In an attempt to get revenge, she debuts as a celebrity; the storyline unfolds with various romantic adventures and hijinks.

Si Won will be playing top star, Ren while Donghae is cast as popular singer, Sho.

No word yet on when the drama will be aired.

  1. siwon will play my favorite character yeah!! but donghae for sho donghae is nothing like sho except for being a popular singer….

  2. Eeek, I’m not so cool with Hae playing as Sho :/
    I wish it was someone other than my bias, tbh.
    But congrats to the two for getting the part.
