Korean actor Park Shin Yang is casted in a new TV drama “Heaven” <헤븐> which will start production shooting in November 2010.

This drama will mark Park’s come-back since his last drama “Painter of the Wind (2008 SBS)” 2 years ago before he was banned by CODA (Corea Drama Production Association) with the most ridiculous reason.  The production company (a CODA member) deliberately held Park’s contracted wages.  Park filed a lawsuit against that production company.  Then CODA banned Park, claiming he interrupted the normal drama operations.  The Court has ruled (twice) that the production company must pay Park to honor the spirit of the contract.

Park’s character in “Heaven” is a forensics expert who is mysophobic (“neat freak”). There will be intense medical challenges (forensic pathology), fierce politics in the circle and inner struggles (greed) – the Production Company, Apollo Pictures, has no other but Park Shin Yang in mind for this role for the depth this actor needs to bring to breathe life into the role.

Production Company: Apollo Pictures (아폴로 픽쳐스는) (a non-CODA member)

Director: Jang Hang Joon (장항준) (movie Manner of Battle (2008)) (co-wrote: Harvest Villa(2010))

Screenwriter: Kim Eun Hee (김은희) (Sweet 18 (2004), The Snow Queen(2006), When It’s At Night (2008), Take Care of the Young Lady (2009), co-wrote Harvest Villa)

Lead Female: Kim Ah Joong (김아중) (Sea God/Emperor of the Sea (2004), Accidental Couple/That Fool (2009); movie: 200 Pounds Beauty (2006))

Broadcasting Station: SBS

Schedule: Wednesdays/Thursdays (after “Daemul”); January 2011


A group was started to help lift the (CODA) ban on Park Shin Yang.  Please support the September 2010 email campaign:

See your email on Sept 5, 2010 or before.  The campaign strikes every 5th of the coming months, until the ban is reversed.  Join the effort to lift the ban as you are available.

Thank you for your support!!

      Non-CODA production companies definitely can engage Park Shin Yang for dramas! I look forward to watching him and Kim Ah Joong in “Heaven”!
