    Shin Hye Sun 신혜선

    I got from this blog https://m.blog.naver.com/js2y86/221343140713 Such a treasure , lots and lots of nice pics of every episode of 30but17 and Hymn of Death. Yes, I did that, hope you enjoy it. (my 2nd rambling of the day, didn't expect but can't help myself after get involve in this discussion). As @jakey09 pointed out first, it's also in my mind for a while too, thinking about how '30but17' is personal drama for our SHS. It's not only a healing drama for audience but as her said when she received SBS drama award that this drama also healed her and Seo-Ri's role was a gift for her. I agree that it healed her from all sadness and traumas that she's been encountered in her past experiences and in past dramas. Below are examples of '30 but 17' healing magic. Warm and happy family - In 'My Golden Life' , Ji-An got a lot of pressure from her real family. Her real mother even lied to her. She was slapped by her sister and also had to abandon her artistic dream to work for support her family. Then she moved to live with that Chaebol, they are all her family but everyone seems to be strangers. - In 'Hymn of Death', she took all the burden for her whole family, even sacrificed her life for their safety. Compared to 30but17, everyone in that house accepted and took care of Seo-Ri even they didn't know her. All were strangers but lived as a family. ( A family of strangers) (From strangers became family) Dream and career. - You can compare this to her real life struggling to catch her dream, audition after audition, without agency, hoping to be chosen for a role, keep asking herself whether she's not good enough. Even though at last she got the lead role, she had to do crying marathon for 52 episodes. - In 'Secret Forest', because Eun-Soo was a junior prosecutor, no one respected her and trusted her. When Shi-Mok set up his team for the case, she wasn't asked to join. Finally she was invited to team dinner and it was the first time she felt valuable and accepted (we can see her first sweet smile in that scene). As she began to feel happy, then the next episode turned out to be her ending in this drama. She devoted her life to get this job to find out the truth and to get her revenge, but instead, she was used as a bait and a pawn in this game. - In 'My Golden Life', Seo Ji-An worked so hard on all the jobs she could find. She was fired from her job , was humiliated even by her boss's daughter, was cheated by her old school friend. She's so hopeless to find a good job because she didn't get a good grade. Although in the end she found the job that she loved and had chance to study abroad from her father's life insurance money (so sad). - In 'Hymn of Death' , ...another sad story , too much hurt for me to describe, too much pressure for a girl like Shim Deok. (대체 얼마나 더 많은 눈물을 흘려야 ? - How many more tears do I have to shed ? ** from 'Tears in My Heart'**) On the other hand, '30but17' gave encouragement and inspiration on how we should find the thing we love to do and follow that dream, no matter how long it will take or how long of 'intermission' period we have been in (made you think of someone's life, right? No surprise she acted so well in this scene, digging it out from her own experience). (내 인생에 인터미션 - Intermission in my life) In this drama, there's no one to pressure her on her career, she got all supports from her 'family'. She got a nice guy who respect her decision. Even she was fired in this drama too, but later she got a nice job and a nice boss who supported her (and shipped her and gave her 'Carlyn' bag ), and didn't even cared about her educational degree . Love and a nice guy Look back and compare how her character got mistreated and hurt by some male characters. - In 'Oh My Ghost' , the guy who Eun-Hee married was the one who caused the accident, he killed other people just to cover the truth. Compared to '30but17', there's also an accident, but Woo-Jin (despite it's not his fault) felt guilty for life. Also, the truck driver who actually caused the accident paid Seo-Ri's hospital bills and came to her to apologize. - In 'Secret Forest' , Eun-Soo always showed respect and gratefulness to Shi-Mok (even said out that she had good feeling for him) but she was yelled and reprimanded although sometimes she just tried to help or to thank him. She was used and finally was killed because someone just neglected to receive her phone. Compared to '30 but 17', Seo-Ri might not have a mobile phone, but her guy always looked out and found her. Every small thing she did was also appreciated. In this scene in '30 but 17', Seo-Ri might just want to say on behalf of Eun-Soo in 'Secret Forest' that although Shi-Mok had physical problem expressing his emotion, at least he should be able to show his manner to the girl who just want to thank him. (Instead of scolding someone about getting involved, a simple thank would do it !) Saying it out loud in '30but17' probably healed her (and myself as audience). Yes ! Woo Seo-Ri, you rock !. (Her sincerity and how she respected him and his sister was enough to win his heart) - 'My Golden Life' In this drama, there are so many reasons that made Ji-An and Do-Kyung's love so difficult. The different of their families. His chaebol family didn't want her. And he himself (at the beginning) just wanted to win her heart but wasn't willing to leave everything for her and didn't understand (until almost the end) why she was hurt so much and how re-discovery love in her job was so important to her to recover from past trauma. He just rushed and pushed her just for his own feeling. (In MGL, she returned her necklace, in 30but17 she gave back her key ring. Different feel and meaning). Compared with '30but17', Mr. Gong's family accepted Seo-Ri from the beginning despite she was a homeless , jobless and didn't graduate high school, (worse than Seo Ji-An). Even Woo-Jin's sister also approved her just seeing that her brother became a happier person because of this girl. Such an opened-mind and cute family. Mr. Gong always understood and respected her decision, he didn't even force her for marriage and willing to wait until she's ready and could reconcile with her past. How wouldn't our SHS be comfort and smile when she read the script of this sweet Woo-Jin's character ? That's the reason why Kim Sang-Min and Gong Woo-Jin got wedding scenes, because both were well deserved, LOL And that's why I loved this drama so much after watching her past characters suffered a lot. It may be just a rom-com drama but its magic really healed me and SHS too. (credit and many thanks to the owner of this blog that I used a lot of pics in this post, because those are so good telling stories).

    @jakey09 Yes, I agree with you. Because her lead career start late, so now she works non-stop to compensate for that past time. I think Woo Seo-Ri's role is quite like herself in real life that even with all talents but she lost many years and now she's 30 just ending her 'intermission' and trying to pursue her dream. When she played this scene and said 'I want my time back ' , she must think about her past too. I think all those supporting roles and her tough past experiences are so precious for her. The good thing being supporting actress is that you have chances to act in variety of roles (that makes her a versatile actress now). And when you are in the set watching the main lead acting, from 3rd person point of view you can observe and learn how they act, see what's acting is ok and what's not ok, and imagine yourself what you will act if you play that role. (And later she may practice that role in her bathroom in front of mirror too). So it's a also good learning experience that makes her become a very detailed actress. Enough for my rambling today. Time for an entertainment I read many comments and discussions said that our Shin Hye Sun looks like Ji-Soo (Blackpink) , Chae-Young (Twice), Yeon-Woo (Momoland). I can't decide whether Shin Hye Sun looks similar to those idols or not. I already tried my best to find the close photos here for you all to judge for yourself. But what make me so glad is that the way people compare her with idols of 24, 19 and 22 years old. (P.S. I have no intention to offense those idols, so their fan clubs please don't be mad at me. Your idols and our SHS are all great and pretty.) Ji-Soo Chae-Young Yeon-Woo

    Really love this. LOL. Still in 'retro pics' mode. School 2013 BTS video , at the end of video they took graduation photos together. The one with short hair was the cutest girl of this class . At 0.35 she got emotional as it was her last day of school (and probably because it's her debut drama and at that time she might have no idea whether she will get a chance for more drama......you'll never know the future...) I think I've seen this photo before in some IG , but I just found the high quality image

    Yes @meechuttso I got the old pics from that page .... also glad that most comments said she's such a natural beauty and looks the same then and now. Two more bites. You can't imitate her biting and eating. It's her special skill to make that cute and adorable, otherwise you may end up like this... (I'm just joking .. JJH's fan don't be mad at me ) Another one for Valentine's

    Glad to see from this IG's comments that lots people loves this drama so much. My best drama of 2018. (edited) Oh...I found this comment about the above scene, made me LOL

    @jakey09 This is Yang Se Jong (182 cm) and Shin Hye Sun (171.8) wearing high heels. And L (180 cm) with Go Ara (170 cm) without high heels. I expected that SHS will wear high heels in 'One and Only Love' because she will play a role of rich girl. So...she may look almost as tall as L . But I'm ok , as long as the chemistry comes out good .
  8. The Three Sisters of PyongYang This article was written by Youn Shim Duk's great-grandniece. (Her great-grandmother is the eldest , Shim Duk is 2nd ) https://narratively.com/the-three-sisters-of-pyongyang/ This is the part she described about her great-grandmother (Shim Duk's elder sister), she was such a modern woman. (Youn) Shim Sung became the first graduate of her junior high in 1908. Then, when she was fourteen, her parents sent her to Ewha High School for girls in Seoul, where she was valedictorian of her class and went on to join only the second class of women to graduate from Ewha Womans University, where she then taught math, physics and English. When she went to his hometown Andong to meet her future in-laws, as she stepped out of the gama (a carriage carried by people on foot), her mother-in-law fainted, overwhelmed by Shim Sung’s tall stature, modern hair style, and sophisticated dress, which was influenced by the fashion from Hong Kong. And some parts about Shim Duk At first Woo Jin, a quiet, academic, philosophical person, didn’t like Shim Duk, who had an open, joyful personality, which was, in that time and place, considered masculine. As my aunt says, “He thought, ‘What a woman.’ Women in those days were supposed to be shy.” During the Japanese colonial period, about three in four Koreans were farmers, and although education was expanded from four to six years in 1922, by the mid-1930s, fewer than one in six Korean elementary school-age children were enrolled in an officially recognized school. Because of their chosen pursuits, Shim Duk and Woo Jin were struck by the fact that Koreans mostly knew nothing of drama or classical music. As outsiders, they bonded, and he invited her whole family down to Mokpo for a visit. In 1922, when her seven years of study in Japan were complete, Shim Duk toured in Korea. Tall, stylish and beautiful and with her unconventional personality, she created a huge sensation. She would wear a long dress with a red rose and sing opera arias, even though at that time, classical music had never been heard in Korea. Men packed recital halls just to look at her, Korea’s first real “modern” woman. But Shim Duk was depressed. A bookworm who owned hundreds of tomes, she was reading a lot of Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, and, as my aunt put it, “Pessimism was kind of in fashion.” Shim Duk would read intellectual books and cry about the state of Korean society. “They don’t understand my music,” she would lament. People were fascinated by her, but they didn’t really appreciate her music or talent. According to my aunt, headlines across the country declared that the famous soprano Youn Shim Duk and a rich man committed suicide because of love. But, my aunt says, while they may have been lovers, the main reason for their suicide was that they were both in such despair over their lives: “Society was not ready for them yet. They were born too early.” After reading this article, I got more idea about how much modern her family was and how educated women like her felt herself as an outsider of her society. It's understandable that why Woo Jin and Shim Deok were attracted to each other because in that era it's hard to find someone who appreciated their artistic talent. And as I read some comments mentioned about adultery or cheating married man, personally I agree with the article that both didn't commit suicide because they are lovers as media tried to portray, but because they couldn't go on living their lives in that society and they just chose to die together because only both of them understood each other. Also for comments that Shim Duk's role played by Shin Hye Sun is 'too modern' in this drama, I think the above highlighted sentences already proved that the script and the acting and also SHS appearance (joyful, open, tall, stylish, beautiful) are so perfectly matched the real Shim Duk.
