Cinematic adaptation of Japanese drama

“La Grande Maison Paris” is a cinematic adaptation of the popular Japanese drama “La Grande Maison Tokyo,” aired on TBS in 2019.

The film will include many original drama stars, such as Kimura Takuya, Suzuki Kyoka, Sawamura Ikki, and Oikawa Mitsuhiro, enriching the story with their narratives.

The plot centres on genius chefs Obana Natsuki (Kimura Takuya) and Hayami Rinko (Suzuki Kyoka), who achieved three Michelin stars in Japan before opening La Grande Maison Paris in France.

The story follows their quest to become the first Asians to earn three Michelin stars in France, the home of fine cuisine.

Multilingual role

Taecyeon will portray Rick Yuan, a Korean-Canadian pastry chef who frequently clashes with head chef Obana Natsuki. Rick Yuan is a skilled chef with a passion for desserts, capable of running his own shop.

Taecyeon will demonstrate his acting prowess by performing in Korean, Japanese, and French.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Taecyeon said: “I was thrilled to appear alongside Kimura Takuya, whom I greatly admire, and it was an honor to be part of this remarkable project.

Working with international staff between Japan and Paris was highly motivating, and it reinforced my belief that I can tackle new challenges if I fully immerse myself in the character.

Just like the La Grande Maison team striving for three Michelin stars, I hope viewers will find inspiration to pursue their dreams, believing they can come true.”

“La Grande Maison Paris” is set for release in Japan this winter. Stay tuned!
