A production announcement press conference was held on 12th May in Seoul GooRoDong 9th Avenue for the upcoming KBS drama ‘IRIS’.

The main cast Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Hee, Big Bang TOP, Kim So Yeon and Kim Seung Woo were present at the press conference.

‘IRIS’ is said to be the best anticipating drama of year 2009 with its famous cast.

Lee Byung Hun acts as Hyun Joon who is works for NSS investigating a great national conspiracy. Kim Tae Hee acts as SeungHee who also work for the NSS. Whie Kim So Yeon acts as Kim Seon Hwa who works as both a staff at NSS and also a operation agent in the drama.

Also Kim Seung Woo acts as a North Korea escort team leader while TOP plays a cruel killer in the show.

The show is set to be 20 billion KRW in the making, and its cast will bring the viewers through action and romance scenes with the backdrop of Asia and European countries.

The drama is set to air in the latter half of the year in September.

Translation on the interview with TOP:

TOP talks about the difficulty in acting for this drama.

He said during the press conference, “The truth is that I had a lot of pressure doing this drama. At first, it was a lot of pressure on me, but then now it is more like a great sense of responsibility. I take the role in the drama very seriously and I also learnt a lot from the senir actors. It is great that I can show a different side of me through this drama.”

This is the first adult role taken up by TOP since his drama on KBS ‘I am Sam’. He said, “I act as a teenager in the drama ‘I am Sam’ in 2007 but with this drama I’m acting as a killer. I did preparations myself and also learnt along the way from the seniors around. I’m very excited about being able to show a new image of myself to the Korean and Japanese fans.”

“Of course there are difficulties to this role too. From what I see, the character is very different from myself in actual. Hence it is tough acting as a cruel killer.”
