[NEWS] Donghae and Siwon to start filming for T-Drama “Extravagant Challenge” – remain in TW for 4 months

Extravagant Challenge to resume work, Siwon and Donghae will be living in Taiwan for 4 months

Super Junior fans scream! GTV announced yesterday that Extravagant Challenge will officially begin its filming on 31 March, and that Siwon and Donghae will be staying in Taiwan for 4 months. Although the both of them are Asia’s popular stars, they were very receptive of the accommodation and living arrangements made for them. The only request that they have made is that their privacy at the accommodation must be guaranteed. It does not matter if it is not a hotel, but the best option will be a place where the elevator requires a resident pass to access.

Resuming work after the filming had stopped for 2 years, the male, female casts and even the director for Extravagant Challenge have all changed. Fortunately, Siwon and Donghae‘s combination with Chen Yi Han, Bai Xin Hui remains fresh and glamorous. Originally, Niu Cheng Ze, who was supposed to direct the drama has now been promoted to the producer, while Feng Jia Rui will take over as the new director.

On the 31st, when the filming officially began, aside from Siwon and Donghae, Chen Yi Han and Bai Xin Hui, everyone made an appearance. The original writer from Japan and representatives from the publishing house were unable to attend as they were still dealing with the aftermath of Japan’s earthquake. They will be represented by the supervising representative Miyaki Hisako.

After the Hallyu wave began to spread across Asia, Siwon and Donghae are considered as the Korean stars with the highest popularity who came to film in Taiwan in recent years. Both of them have strict requirements towards their work, but are amiable when it comes to living arrangements. They did not request to stay in a 5-star hotel, nor did they request for bodyguards. GTV’s deputy Lai Cong Bi expressed that: “Some of the Taiwanese artists are less flexible compared to Korean artists, but their appeal in the overseas market is less than that of the Korean artists. If this continues, it will be difficult for them to to compete in the market.”

The drama ‘Extravagant Challenge’ will be using the entertainment industry as a setting, and the main leads of this drama are all celebrities. Bai Xin Hui will be acting as Chen Yi Han’s close friend and rival in the drama. The character has a cold appearance but a warm personality, someone who possess great acting skills but is emotionless. It is a character that she has not attempted before, causing her to really look forward to it.
