But one thing that bugs me, is it really true Hyun Bin calls Ha Ji Won noona?
Some Korean guys don’t like calling a girl that they like ‘nuna,’ because it makes them feel that they are nothing more to that girl than a young boy. Others, however, don’t mind calling a girl ‘nuna’ that they like. Once they get used to calling her ‘nuna,’ he can seek a brother-sister style relationship with her.
Even if you learn a lot about this cultural difference, it’s best if you do not call an older girl by ‘nuna’ because calling someone ‘nuna’ is acceptable only between the closest of friends.
oppa is likewise used by girls to call a guy who is close but older than her; same goes with guys who calls girls who are close but older than him as nuna. Boyfriend and girlfriend are likewise called this way. The use of these terms denote respect. So don’t be confused when wathcing movies and dramas, if you hear the stars call their lovers on screen as oppa or nuna, this is not incest (to think Koreans are very conservative) but part of their culture.
But in general, noona can be teasingly used in a larger romantic context
My Name is Kim Sam Soon, Hyun Bin’s character uses “noonim” sometimes to tease Sam Soon.
KDW said that "more than like a noona. I wonder if I can say this. At times,she's more like a cute younger sister and she's also like a friend too. She's very thoughtful so then she seems like a noona"
Anyone know if ha ji won, live in apartments or at home with his family?...

Hello Gle_Perry, I do appreciate your support for Ha Ji Won, no matter that sometimes the language barrier made it difficult for us, non English speaker, to express perfectly what we want to say .
To answer you question, I think Ha Ji Won still lives with her parents in a house. There is a link for that in youtube "A Visit To Ha Ji Won's House"
The look of a monster can make or break a monster movie. However, the Far East has always had creature appearances on lockdown, doling out some truly classic designs over the years; and the one for the upcoming 3D monster bash Sector 7 looks to be following suit.
Below you'll find the first glimpse at what the structure of the film's creature will be like. That's right, kids! It's gonna be big! Sector 7, which will be shot in 3D, follows the events surrounding what happens when a mutated deep sea creature runs amok in an oil rig. Though horrific, it can't possibly be worse than what we had going on here in the Gulf for god's sake.
Award-winning actress Ha Ji-won starring for new director Kim Ji-hoon. Look for more on this one as soon as it comes.
An underwater oil field located south of Jeju Island, where Hae-jun is working as a marine equipment manager on an oil prospecting ship called Eclipse. Joining the crew later is Jeong-man, a former colleague of Hae-jun's father, assigned to Eclipse as captain. Though his job is to oversee the withdrawal of the ship, he suggests conducting some drilling one last time. After 3 weeks of preparation, Hae-jun takes new recruit underwater, but he sinks to the bottom of the sea when his equipment fails. Shortly after crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously mutilated. What the few survivors soon discover is a transparent underwater creature they encountered once before. The viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on the crew to survive. For Hae-jun and his colleagues, a fight for their lives begins.
Thanks to DC reader Avery for the heads-up!
