    Those articles, talks about: The a gradma of 95 years old visited during the filming at Incheon (the beauty competition) and mm i think is that she thanked the cast.

    While the actors were really busy and tired because of a hard shot(Oh my dear Suna, hope you're taking care well of your health)...they stopped and helped the grandma with her house (that's why on the pic Suna is with that wallpaper) she and all the cast helped with the oil, wallpaper... and they Hope
    the grandma will live a long and healthy life.
    =DDD oMo they're are so cool... Wonderful heart and action from the team of ( THE CITY HALL)

    ^ oh that outfit reminds of one thing and only one thing... that thing! image

    so annoying, SBS is still slow on my end... just when i'm in the mood to navigate the website... maybe it's because of my clubbox... image


    ===============

    Ohhh Emmm Geee!!!! image
    Ok, it might just be me going excited once again... this time for the OST.

    I'm starting to update the first page. While SBS website is still annoying me, I was trying to look for the title of the only song from the OST that we know.
    http://www.diodeo.com/id=entertaintv&m...&pt_code=03
    *by the way, anyone can help me? i'm not a k-pop fan so... is 정인-비지 Jung-In and Bizzy (???) the performers/singer? anyone knows the title of the song?

    anyway, going back... while trying to research, I came across a blog oh no! it's not just 'a blog', it's ay_link's blog! that makes me soooo excited for the OST.

    Remember angie's post about the musical director/pianist:

    Watch out for SBS “City Hall” soundtrack

    OK, can’t help myself not to post this wonderful news.
    At first I honestly don’t care about the new upcoming drama, “City Hall” (starring Kim Soon Ah), but now, will have to watch it just to listen to its soundtrack. Yeah, I quietly (and madly) adore Noh Young Shim’s madness piano skills ♥♥♥

    She’s truly wonderful (listen to “Alone In Love” OST if you still need a proof, oh and also, “Bad Couple” OST). She’s AWESOME! Watch her live performance @ Lee Hana’s Peppermint here

    Noh Young Shim participates in “City Hall” OST… it’s gonna be a hit OST once more!

    For the new SBS drama, “City Hall”, pianist Noh Young Shim is in charge as the music director as well as the whole soundtrack of the drama itself. SBS drama “City Hall” directed by PD Shin Woo Cheol, with Scriptwriter Kim Eun Suk, will be airing right after “Cain & Abel” on April 29.

    In 2006, Noh Young Shim had worked in SBS “Alone In Love” OST as its music director. Her reputation has been proven, as the hit theme song, brought to you by Sweet Sorrow also received its recognition.

    According to PD Shin Woo Cheol, “With Noh Young Shim on board to handle the OST, it’ll be a hit once again.”, “We hope through music, we can pass on the message of the drama to the audience… so for this, we’re working towards to achieve that goal. Noh Young Shim also expressed, “Through music and lyrics, I hope the audience can be immersed more in the drama, to help getting the message across.”

    In the mean time, Noh Young Shim will be holding her own concert next month, May 20-21, with the theme of “Noh Young Shim’s May Piano”, featuring also the theme song from “City Hall”.

    (Wow, with this news, I can just imagine how “City Hall” OST is going to be just like “Alone In Love”. Noh Young Shim will be able to ’sneak in’ her personal message in each note that’ll bring us such an impact - and supporting the drama as a whole at the same time. I’m now listening to “Alone In Love” OST as I write, and it’s just so…. magical. Love her!)

    (Ah I wish I can attend her concert!^^)

    Meet Noh Young Shim

    Some of you might be wondering right about now as to why on earth I’m posting about some random pianist. But for the piano lovers out there, this post might just be for you.

    Her name is Noh Young Shim 노영심 and if you thought you’ve never heard her name before until now, well, guess again. Sure you have. Have you ever watched the superb SBS drama, “Bad Couple” starring Ryu Su Young and Shim Eun Kyung?

    What about “Alone In Love” starring Son Ye Jin and Gam Woo Sung? (Btw, this drama is produced by her very own husband, Director Han Ji Seung. Read about her participation on her hubby’s movie production, 싸움 here.)

    This one is from “Alone In Love“, sung by Sweet Sorrow - “No matter how I think, how much am I to you”

    She’s truly wonderful, and I’m happy to have found her through the recent episode of Lee Hana’s Peppermint (Feb 6) where she was the first guest, accompanied Lee Hana on the grand piano for the first song entrance. (and Lee Hana sounds pretty good too!)

    So, there we go. I was kinda surprised to find out who she is, and the excellent work that she has done through the drama soundtrack. Noh Young Shim 노영심 is the music director for “Bad Couple“, and now, while I’m listening to the OST again, especially for those instrumental tracks, I got goosebumps all over. She’s definitely the female version of Yiruma image

    And for the good news is that Noh Young Shim 노영심 will be participating in the soundtrack of SBS ‘왕녀자명고’ (Princess Ja Myung Go) I’m so looking forward for both the OST and the drama now ^^


    Bad Couple? Bad Couple?!!! Meaning... she did 'Saranghandamariya~'
    I'm a big big big fan of Bad Couple OST (next to MNIKSS OST). And most definitely of the 2 Saranghandamariyas (Ki Chan said and Dang Ja said versions). I really fell in love with the song. It compliments the story of the drama, and it compliments the characters. I believe javabeans even translated the songs on her blog when she was doing Bad Couple recaps. http://www.dramabeans.com/2007/07/bad-coup...said/#more-2134
    I was forever wondering what will be Mi-Rae's theme. I've always loved Sam-Soon's theme "inside my heart". Cho-Hee doesn't seem to have one (intended just for her moments, sang by a woman... i think, i can say 'useupji' is bum-sang's theme). I have a feeling Mi-Rae will have a theme of her own.
    And now I just can't believe that the one who did Bad Couple's OST is the same person who will do City Hall's OST. OMG! It's just surreal! I am sooo happy!!!!
    (those who knows how to appreciate music/piano... ahhh! she's crazy with her piano! she is! i'm really glad to finally know what her name is!)
    Now I know why there was a set of article about her. I was like, ok, so that's the musical director, so what's the big fuss... when in fact, it was indeed THE musical director!

    I'm getting more and more confident with City Hall... ^^

    *downloading Along In Love OST now! while listening to Bad Couple OST.
    -- now it makes me a bit sad... because i might like City Hall's ost more than MNIKSS' ost now...

    Hi alodia, I don't know Korean language.
    But, noted that these words '그래 나를 믿자' appeared in the corresponding news articles about The City Hall OST (including the news article I initially posted at pg 19 of this thread). Could it be the title of the song? Not sure if it's of help. image

    Cannot quite understand what was written but does it mean that Suna and the rest
    of the cast actually helped the 95 year old grandma to do up her place? That's real
    sweet of Suna and the cast and no wonder this grandma went to the filming location
    to see them. City Hall has already won a great fan!

    Ahhh... 8 more days to City Hall (7 more days to last exam paper image )
    I'm currently too bored studying for my level 2 Japanese exam.
    Just needed that little dosage of City Hall and Suna to kill boredom.

    The second thing I'm gonna love about this drama would be the OST. (I'm an instrumental lover, other than ballad and acoustics.)
    The first, Suna as the main cast. I'm so loving Suna and CSW's chemistry. They make such a lovely pair although CSW is married. I think maybe both are really playful which makes them well matched.
    Not sure if I'm gonna like the PD and writer. I enjoyed On Air slightly, but the frustration in it is somewhat unbearable. Never watched Lovers in Paris and Lovers in Prague, but my friend told me that Lovers in Paris is nice.

    The frustrations of waiting... image
    It must be well worth all this waiting!!

    Would they keep this updated until the airing?
    Are we going to be able to read Mi Rae's thoughts as the drama progresses?
    It would be really cool to be able to read (ifonlywecanunderstandit) her thoughts, let's say, about Jo Gook's arrival in Inju, about her rehearsals for the Ms.Baendaengi contest, about her falling in love with Jo Gook... how i wish Mirae speaks in english! hahaha!

    'City Hall' to Bring Public Officials to TV

    By Han Sang-hee
    Staff Reporter

    image
    Actors Cha Seung-won, left, and Kim Sun-ah pose for the cameras at the press conference of the new drama “The City Hall.” The two actors will play public officials, both vying for success and of course, love. The drama will start airing at 10 p.m. on April 29 on SBS. / Yonhap

    The makers of hit dramas and some of Korea's favorite actors are getting together to bring the life, passion and love of public officials working at city hall.

    Created by producer Shin Woo-chul and writer Kim Eun-sook, who brought hit television series such as "Lovers in Paris'' (2004), "Lovers in Prague'' (2005) and "On Air'' (2008), the new drama "The City Hall'' portrays the story of public officials working in a small town finding their way to success, plus a bit of romance along the way.

    "We were not going for a political drama. We just wanted to talk about people, and a lot of them, and that's how we set the backdrop in a city hall. The drama will be about people we meet and see everyday,'' said the producer at a press conference held in Incheon.

    Kim Sun-ah, 33, who played the quirky and lovable character Sam-soon in the hit drama "My Lovely Sam-soon,'' will appear as Shin Mi-rae, a low-ranking official who's been making coffee for her superiors for the last seven years. Her life takes a turn when she wins a pageant and later becomes the mayor. Her name literally means "the new future.''

    "Shin is the brightest, cutest and most lovable character I've ever portrayed. But, to be honest, it was also the hardest drama I've ever worked on. I was able to focus on acting only because my counterpart was so great,'' Kim, who surprised reporters with her slimmer figure, said.

    The counterpart Kim mentioned is model-turned-actor Cha Seung-won.

    "There was nothing particularly difficult, but it was hard to be hit in the head so many times,'' Cha said, laughing.

    The 38 39-year-old actor has returned to the small screen after seven six years as a smart and passionate official named Cho Guk, which means "home country,'' dreaming of becoming the next president. Expectations are naturally high.

    "Of course I'm happy to be back. It's been a while but I think I've learned to release the stress of working on dramas. We have so many talented actors, and it really means a lot to be working with them happily for this series,'' he said.

    Famous for their comic characters, the two actors will be able to show their funny sides, as the writer herself said that the soap was going to be her funniest work.

    "This drama is really a romantic comedy. I had a difficult time understanding the true meaning of humor in the past, but I've finally overcome my difficulty,'' Kim said, smiling.

    Known for her quick and catchy lines in her previous dramas, starring top actresses such as Kim Jung-eun (Lovers in Paris), Kim Hee-sun Jeon Do-yeon (Lovers in Prague) and Kim Ha-neul (On Air), the writer said that she always left some space for the actors to fill in themselves.

    "When they have a space within the script where they can experiment, it really makes a difference. The script for this drama also offers that and both Kim and Cha said they were thrilled,'' she added.

    Despite the colorful characters and the catchy names, the title "The City Hall'' still begs the image of a political drama, and both the producer and writer made sure that they made their points clear.

    "Politics just happened to appear because of the backdrop. But that's not what the series is about. I wanted to show our ideals: ideal mayors, politicians and public officials as ordinary people, just like us,'' Kim said.

    "The City Hall'' will start airing April 29 at 10 p.m. on SBS.

    The title of the blog is 나는 새로운 미래다 (naneun saeroun miraeda) which means "I am the New Future".
    And we all know that Mi Rae's full name 신미래 (Shin Mi Rae) means New Future if taken literally.

    Anyone knows anything about Mi Rae's mother and their relationship? We will see soon. But on this section she is writing 101 ways to avoid (her) mother...
    so far she wrote 2 chapters already. image

    Wow, so many updates, up to now there are few clips from the press con that is coming out, like this one
    from Baidu.

    http://tieba.baidu.com/%BD%F0%C9%C6%D1%C5/...2bfb3447bd5bd9/

    Look at the interaction of our new fave couple...look at Cha, (3:30-3:36) notice anything?
    My imagination is running wild again....hehehe

    I think Suna and Kim Ah Jong are equally sexy and talented, but Suna is more beautiful and she has a strong charisma. I really...really love to see her in a swim suit, I may sound like a pervert but I really admire Suna`s body.

    Thanks Dia for my SBS acct!

    Hi Angie, Anggie, Helena, Sueyip, mzpakipot, pmmonkey, saranghae<3, forevergirl!

    Kim Sun Ah..."I need to be touched in order for the viewers to think, “That can really happen” through my acting".
    "I give a lot of effort to nurture my heart. Whether someone calls me crazy or not, I will even go to a corner of a shooting scene to act goofy to pep myself up"
