[Trivia] More on Red and Black (SBS Bad Guy 나쁜남자 )

The drama “Red and Black” is coproduced with Korea. Lee Hyung Min - the producer of “Winter Sonata” – directed this emotionally-charged Korean drama, based on Stendhal’s classic novel of the same name. The dramatic story unfolds with forbidden love, breath-taking action and the stunning cinematography for which Korean dramas are famous. In addition, the drama features numerous Japanese locations, including hot springs, fireworks and snow-covered landscapes, shot in such prefectures as Gifu, Aichi and Mie. The cast includes Kim Nam Gil, Kim Jaeuck and Kosuke Toyohara. The program will broadcast with subtitles on BS Premium from September 4th to 15th at 10 p.m. and rebroadcast October 7 for the dubbed version.(source : NHK)






Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black), 1830, by Stendhal, is a historical psychological novel in two volumes,[1] chronicling a provincial young man’s attempts to socially rise beyond his plebeian upbringing with a combination of talent and hard work, deception and hypocrisy — yet who ultimately allows his passions to betray him.

The novel’s composite full title, Le Rouge et le Noir, Chronique du XIXe siécle (The Red and the Black: A Chronicle of the 19th Century),[2] indicates its two-fold literary purpose, a psychological portrait of the romantic protagonist, Julien Sorel, and an analytic, sociological satire of the French social order under the Bourbon Restoration (1814–30). In English, Le Rouge et le Noir is variously translated as Red and Black, Scarlet and Black, and The Red and the Black, without the sub-title.[3] . (source : Wikipedia )
