Kim Ha Neul has always been an “It Star” – especially since she’s been in the industry for 13 years. However I feel like she’s in demand more than ever, and I’m sure her turn in “2 Days 1 Night” helped transform her image. To me, she does seem more approachable, and a lot more friendly than I thought she would be.
Cha Seung Won is certainly getting his second wave of super popularity with his recent spate of dramas, from City Hall to Athena to Greatest Love. The actor and former model has been in the industry for 22 years, which is a shockingly long time, but has made his mark as an iconic character through Dokko Jin.
Yay! An interview with my fave T-ARA/actress/idol singer! Eunjung, the former leader of T-ARA, won me over with her performance in Coffee House, and the one scene that I did watch of Dream High just so happened to be when she finally decides to go forward about the rape (?). (Forgive me if facts are wrong; I just flipped the channel and tada! Dream High was on TV. And then I watched for a few minutes before finally feeling too lost to follow.)
Anyways! Eunjung is appearing in the film thriller “White,” where she plays idol leader Eun Ju for a fictional group called “Pink Dolls.” (OK, so it’s already making fun of her position in T-ARA, as well as the girl groups APink and 5Dolls?) Each member mysteriously dies off until Eun Ju is left standing, and she gets to be the solo debut artist.
Lee Yo Won is a serious actress. She’d rather be talked to about her work than about her personal life. The actress married in 2003 to professional golfer Park Jin Woo, and they have a 7-year old daughter together. She also spent 9 years studying part-time at Dankuk University before finally graduating in 2008. Imagining her personal life with all the work she’s done since then… Amazing huh?
So here is an excerpted interview of Lee Yo Won, and how she viewed her role on 49 Days.
Kim Jae Wook is leaving us all soon for the military. *tear* So it’s about due time that he gets another interview with asiae. In his last interviews, he was talking about Bad Guy (which was only a year ago, but feels like ages ago). This time, the focus is around his musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” where he plays the transgender rock singer. He’s certainly a gifted actor – he just needs the right roles to let him shine. It’ll be sad to see him gone from the public eye for two years, but perhaps it’s a “certainty” for his immediate future to focus on, and he’ll be back in no time knowing a bit more on where he wants to go, and who he wants to be.
Below is an excerpt of the interviews.
Because no one can get enough of 49 Days or Jung Il Woo‘s career-making turn as the lovable Scheduler.
He talks extensively about his character and how much he enjoyed acting alongside Lee Yo Won. (No kidding – like their chemistry wasn’t palpable.) But he also gives some of us hope; he’s planning on taking on a new project in the next couple of months, so… we might see him in the small screen again?! Just as long he doesn’t pick another Take Care of the Young Lady, I think he’s good.
The cast of 49 Days gathered for a small shoot for InStyle Korea, complete with captions (roughly translated). First up, Lee Yo Won!
“What style to wear today for the shoot as I look at the script?” says 49 Days actress Lee Yo Won (playing Song Yi Kyung).
When another soul possessed my body I was thrown into chaos. What did I say? That’s my role in the drama. One body, two souls – I have to constantly change my hairstyle and clothing but it’s fun. Although, having another soul enter your body is really scary.
I know I am in serious need to watch this drama. Though the first two episodes have already aired, this mini interview occurred before the first episode went on air.
Good enough for me – since I still haven’t watched it!
It’s just been confirmed that Gong Hyo Jin will star alongside Cha Seung Won in the Hong Sisters’ The Discovery of Affection, due out later this year. Is it just me, or is this one of their oldest casts ever? Maybe it’s just me. Anyways, the following is an interview by asiae in regards to her recently published book about the environment. She’s very honest about herself and her work, particularly the fact that she’s writing about environmental issues…and yet bought a fur coat. (I kinda wanna read that chapter.) It doesn’t look like she’s making a very researched statement in her book, but rather a more opinionated book based on her insights. (Honestly, I’d expect a more well-researched, literate book out of Lee Young Ae, what with her doctorate degree and what not.)
I am sooooo addicted to Big Bang’s latest singles – especially “What is Right” because it has enough of a funky and happy vibe to it that makes it catchy. After reading their interview, I now want to go back and listen to that and “Tonight” with a more analytical ear.
And so what follows is an excerpt of their interview with asiae.
Their parody of Secret Garden included!
