Kim Bum in New Drama with Son Dam Bi

Posted by diopatra on May 12, 2009

After completing all his movie projects on hand, Kim Bum will next be embarking on a new drama project together with Son Dambi and Joo Jin Mo for SBS Dream. It was announced today that the new Mon-Tue drama will see Kim Bum becoming a tough guy again who practises mixed martial arts. He will thus shed his gentle, pretty boy image that was forged in Boys Before Flowers and revert back to his charismatic image shown in East of Eden.

Dream is a sports drama about Kim Bum who turns good after being in a youth correctional facility. Joo Jin Mo becomes his (Kim Bum) mentor in his quest to become a top mixed martial arts exponent. Son Dambi, more known for her singing and whose Hollywood movie went up in smoke, will make her acting debut in this drama instead. Dambi will be acting as the daughter of a mixed martial arts academy director.

Filming for Dream will commence soon, with the broadcast set for September.

Kim Bum’s had pretty good luck with projects — Unstoppable High Kick, East of Eden, Boys Before Flowers — and we’ll see if he can keep the streak going with his new drama. He’s just announced his next role, in the SBS Monday-Tuesday drama Dream [드림], which also stars Joo Jin-mo (200 Pound Beauty) and pop singer Sohn Dam-bi.

In Dream, Kim Bum will shed his pretty-boy image for a tough guy who spent time in a juvenile correctional facility and now practices mixed martial arts. Because the role calls for lots of skin-baring scenes (topless fighting Kim Bum?!?), he’s busy working out to get into top shape. The drama tells the story of the young man’s journey alongside a sports agent (Joo Jin-mo) as both struggle to overcome hardship and succeed.
