Special elongated trailer from UEE's “Birdie Buddy” drama revealed
Having revealed still cuts yesterday, Group 8 has finally unveiled the teaser for its golf drama series, “Birdie Buddy“, through YouTube on March 18th. The drama is headlined by After School's UEE, but it also stars Lee Yong Woo, Oh Hyun Kyung, Jin Ji Hee, and Yoo In Na, amongst many others. The producers of the drama stated, “For the past year in production, both producers and cast members alike have worked without end to make sure that the drama is as perfect as it can be.” The drama began filming back in March of 2010 and centers around a country girl, 'Sung Misu', who hopes to become a pro golfer despite her difficult financial environment. UEE revealed, “Being the lead role was pressuring, but I worked harder than anyone else in order to become closer with 'Sung Misu.' For the past year, I've lived life not as UEE, but as 'Sung Misu.'” She continued with tears in her eyes, “All there is left is to meet the viewers now.”
Although the series had wrapped up production in 2010, it has yet to be picked up by a broadcast company. But Group 8 remains hopeful – they're confident that this YouTube release will help spark interest in the series, and perhaps allow it to find its way to the small screens within the year.
