Jin Se Yeon Enjoyed Her Break From Melodrama Jin Se Yeon's drama career had included some dark roles. She played a doomed freedom fighter Oh Mok Dan in "Bridal Mask." She was Song Jae Hee, a woman so brainwashed by the North Korean government that she betrays her longtime boyfriend in "Doctor Stranger." In "Inspiring Generation" she play Yoon Ok Ryun, another doomed character.
The actress said recently that she enjoyed taking a break from characters whose lives are so melo, brighten her image, she took a role in the comedy film "Enemies-in-Law." It's a film about two people who fall in love but face one big obstacle. Their families are firmly entrenched on different sides of the law.
In the film Jin Se Yeon plays Young Hee, a police officer from a family full of law officers. She falls in love with Chul Soo, the son of a criminal family known for being expert thieves. Chul Soo, played by model-turned-actor Hong Jung Hyun, is willing to change sides and become a police officer. But his family sees that as a betrayal. Her family does not think he is sincere, even though the couple has been dating for seven years. The film, which has been described as being something of a comedy, something of an action film, and also a thriller, made a nice change for Jin. "It was much easier for me to make this movie," Jin Se Yeon said in an interview with the Korean media outlet Asia Today. "I was glad I could show you a brighter side of me. That's one of the biggest reasons why I chose 'Enemies-in-Law." It was easier even though it was Jin's first leading film role. That part did cause some stress, but she described her co-star Hong Jung Hyun as being very helpful and easy to work with. She liked working on "Enemies-in-Law" so much that she would like to do another comedy. "I want to be the funny one next," she said. "I think I can be even more cheery and bubbly than this." In the five years since she made her acting debut, the 21-year-old actress has already appeared in eight dramas. "Enemies-in-Law" is her third film role.
Totally inexcusable! There are thousands of international fans literally dying to see the next episode of their couple and they cancel the entire show for the baseball game running over 10 MINUTES!? What a stupid way to run a broadcasting network! Everybody should complain on MBC's website. If it was a US station they would have broadcast everything schedule for that night, just delayed their start times by 10 minutes. MBC is run by a bunch of bozos!
@tilac It is kind of random to be honest. Haha. Even if LYH knew that he's doin TMAD, why on earth would she give him a hat? I don't get it. I assume they just met recently because of Jiwoo I suppose. And isn't Jiwoo who's fond of wearing hats all the time? I don't know about you guys, but I'm not buying it. Hahaha.
You know, I don't even care if Cindy gets a loveline anymore, I'm far more upset at how her character is being shafted (barely 10mins per episode other than episode 4). This richard simmons happened to Yoo Se Mi in YWCFTS too (2nd female main cast played by Yoo Inna, best friends with IU). Come on writer, are you stuck with that formula or something? At least develop Cindy's character apart from her crushing on BSC!
@anbud Not only in the TW drama they call them Aunt and Uncle but Chinese dramas I heard it to..
Well I guess Mdm Hong feels lucky her son escape death twice just think if he would have married MJ that was sending him to his death bed life wouldn't be worth living married to that lying conniving monster..
Ditto. They make it seem like she was the last resort or the role just ended up on her lap just because previous contenders begged off. Add to that is the point of association, as you all said. Oh well, I gotta stop. Pardon my pessimism. What matters is she is able to give justice to her role and those who got her to be part of the cast won't regret their decision.
