That Winter, The ₩on Blows (away): CEO of drama production company disappears with investor funds

The CEO of the drama production company The Wind That Carries Wishes, which produced “That Winter, The Wind Blows,” has disappeared with billions of won from various investors.

According to Sports Kyunghyang on January 16, the CEO (hereafter referred to as “A”) has disappeared after taking investments for a new drama from not only large-scale entertainment companies but also small-scale agencies and individuals. The amount lost is estimated to be between 4 to 5 billion won (approximately $3.6 to $4.5 million).

“A” first planned the cable channel OCN’s “Blue Eyes” starring Nana and Jang Ki Yong, and in the process of handing over the project to another production company due to the funding situation, he took anywhere between tens of thousands of won to more than 1 billion won (approximately $892,700) by proposing casting or investment to various investors. Furthermore, it was reported to a police station that he accepted an investment of 700 million won (approximately $624,900) from a businessman that was unfamiliar with the entertainment industry.

Ong Seong Woo cast as lead in new JTBC drama

Ong Seong Woo has been cast as the lead in JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “18 Moments” (literal title). “18 Moments” is a coming-of-age drama about 18-year-olds, taking a realistic look into the moments of their lives, moments that all of us might have experienced at one time or another.

Ong Seong Woo plays Choi Jun Woo, for whom loneliness has become a habit. Though Choi Jun Woo appears to lack empathy at first glance, it’s just that he has always been alone and isn’t practiced in expressing his emotions. Underneath his withdrawn exterior is a goofy and cute young man. “18 Moments” is about the events that unfold when Jun Woo transfers schools and is thrown into a new environment.

Through his agency, Ong Seong Woo said, “With a fresh start ahead of me, I’m both nervous and excited. The excitement is kind of like when I was preparing to debut. This isn’t just something I’m trying, but something that I’ve dreamed of for a long time. As such, I will approach this drama with a sincere mindset.” Ong Seong Woo expressed his determination to always grow and show different sides of himself through his work and said, “I’ll work hard, so please keep an eye on me.”

GOT4 go looking for seven pieces of luck scattered across Thailand... so like missions, yay.

It's interesting seeing a less known dynamic for GOT7 and it brings out new sides in the members (like Jinyoung being quite talkative and bantery and taking the lead). The first episode is pretty chill but I think GOT4 will and do prove that they can be funny too (ofc with the infamous slyness and betrayal already in the first ep, it's GOT7 variety after all). Ah, I think this will be pretty interesting... l
ol why am I writing such a promo.
For now we get to see them settle in, and experience Thailand in both scenery and also yummy food (which just leaves OP salivating, dammit).
