Brilliant Legacy goes International

January 27, 2010

The top drama of this past summer, Brilliant Legacy (aka Shining Inheritance) is scheduled to be shown in 81 countries, including nations in Central Asia, Europe, and Africa.

The International Culture Industry Exchange Foundation (KOFICE) has completed the contract to air Brilliant Legacy in regions which has never shown a kdrama previously. The hope is that this will advance the current Hallyu wave to boldly go where no Kdrama has gone before.

The drama will hit waves for the first time in various African countries and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States). Besides Brilliant Legacy and other 2010 dramas, KOFICE plans to introduce Korean movies as well, including Take-off, 200 Pounds Beauty, and More than Blue.

Brilliant Legacy starred cutie Lee Seung Gi and Han Hyo Joo, along with two of my favorite actors Bae Soo Bin and Moon Chae Won. The drama was a favorite in the family-friendly weekend spot over the summer and hit 47.1% in ratings. (I’m sure all the 1n2d fans out there have this # in your head from Seung Gi‘s adorable boasting.)

After enjoying Seung Gi‘s first foray into a lead role, it’s exciting to anticipate his catapult to international fame. (Nothing’s a guarantee but I think the drama will do well overseas.) With the success that he’s having in so many fronts, I do worry that his days on 1n2d may be numbered though.

    Wow thats amazing! I do think that B.L has a little something for everyone and therefore would be widely popular, as for me I’m from New Zealand and watched it live (albeit with subs for clarification) and everyone who i recommended the drama to, from all walks of life, said it was really good, also there were some aspects in the drama that they could relate to…

    As for the success of the drama on the international arena I’m pretty optimistic, and as for Lee Seung Gi his hard work and talent really show through his work and he has nothing but great things in store for him!

    Thanks for the news Dw4p!

    LOL, 47.1% is like imprinted in my head. Seunggi didn’t have to add the point 1%, but he just had to, haha.

    This explains why I’ve suddenly been getting BL related traffic. But wow, 81 countries. Now Seunggi can do World 1N2D and people would be more likely to recognize him.
