I had missed this news from earlier this year, but my GF just sent me this info (and came up with the blog post title)... a Korean film company is making an adaptation of Fumi Yoshinaga's manga, ANTIQUE BAKERY!
According to ANN, the adaptation is directed by Min Gyu Dong, and will star Joo Ji Hoon in the role of the shop owner (the Keisuke character in the manga) and Kim Jae Wok as the genius pastry maker character (Yusuke Ono in the manga). The film will be released in November in Korea and soon after in Japan and Singapore.
I think Antique Bakery is an awesome series. I read it a few years ago on the recommendation of my buddy (and manga overlord) Jason Thompson, and it was my first real foray into the world of shonen ai. I'm still generally a n00b in the genre, but I am always down with good storytelling no matter what the format. So yeah, I strongly and heartily recommend these books for people who like food and cakes and/or non-retarded but soap-opera style depictions of gay men double-crossing while making ornate French pastries. It's got some heartstrings-pulling too, a la Maisson Ikkoku. NICE.
Here is the recently released trailer for the film to check out! (Whoa, what the hell is up with this music?!)
