    Cho Seung Woo, Ji Sung, And More Celebrate “Feng Shui” Reaching 1 Million Moviegoers FILM Sep 24, 2018 by J. Lim The film “Feng Shui” is celebrating a meaningful milestone as it reaches one million moviegoers! “Feng Shui” tells the story of genius feng shui expert Park Jae Sang (Cho Seung Woo), who is able to change people’s fates with his expertise, and the greed and ambition of those trying to vie for the throne and become the king of the land. According to the Korea Film Council, the film passed the milestone around 5 p.m. KST on September 24. The film achieved this feat on its sixth day since opening in theaters on September 19. The film is being praised as a well-made historical piece, based around an interesting and fast-paced story with a cast of talented actors who bring their characters to life. Released around the Chuseok holidays, “Feng Shui” was also filmed in various locations around Korea to capture the country’s most beautiful sceneries to provide the best visuals for the film as well. To celebrate the milestone, new photos were released of the main cast and director of “Feng Shui.” Cho Seung Woo, Ji Sung, Kim Sung Kyun, and Lee Won Geun were joined by director Park Hee Gon as they marked one million moviegoers together. “Feng Shui” was released on September 19 and is currently playing in theaters in Korea.

    Cho Seung-woo is a man with a message: ‘Fengshui’ touches on the downsides of power struggles and greed Actor Cho Seung-woo returns to the silver screen in the period flick “Fengshui,” which touches on the futility of power struggles that involve betrayal and loss. [MEGABOX PLUS M] For high profile actor Cho Seung-woo, whether he plays a starring role or a supporting character is not important when accepting a role. Instead, the most important element to the 39-year-old is whether the film has a clear message. Based on his solid conviction, the upcoming movie “Fengshui” was a natural choice for the actor. One of the front-runners fiercely vying for the top of the box office during Chuseok, a popular movie-going season, “Fengshui” is a period movie that shows the futility of obsessive fights over power. “I have a solid standard for deciding which film to star in,” said Cho during an interview held in central Seoul last week. “I don’t like the kind of works that simply follow the trend. I usually avoid works that merely look fancy on the outside.” Cho continued, “My goal as an actor is to impose at least the slightest bit of positive influence on people who see my work, or else, it means nothing [to me as an actor].”Directed by Park Hee-gon of crime action movie “Insadong Scandal” (2009), “Fengshui” is set in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). It depicts people who fight over the perfect spot to bury their ancestors, which they believe directly affects the flow of where authority is directed. Cho plays the warm-hearted fengshui master Park Jae-sang, who loses his wife and a child after his attempt to interfere with the powerful Kim family’s plot to steal the propitious spot away from the royal family. Veteran actor Baek Yoon-sik plays the powerful Kim Jwa-geun, the great-uncle of young King Heonjong (1827-49) while Kim Sung-kyun plays Kim’s ambitious son. Ji Sung takes on the role of Heonjong’s uncle Heungseon, who superficially joins hands with Jae-sang to interfere with the ever-expanding power of the Kim family yet with a scheme that diverges from the joint plan with Jae-sang. Moon Chae-won appears as a strong-willed gisaeng (female courtesan) with the plan to take revenge against the people that harmed her family during her childhood. Cho Seung-woo plays a moral and warm-hearted genius Park Jae-sang in “Fengshui,” in which he co-stars with Ji Sung and Baek Yoon-sik.[MEGABOX PLUS M] “While reading the script [of ‘Fengshui’], I felt like the movie was steady while being a classic period flick. It had a powerful [story] with grace,” said Cho. The actor’s trust in the director’s distinct artistic style, which was built through their collaboration in “Perfect Game” (2011), also made it easier for the star to accept the role.Unlike the expressive roles he had played in his movies like crime drama “The War of Flower” (2006) and melodrama “Malaton” (2005), Cho plays a much more toned-down character in his latest film. “It wasn’t an easy role because I had to maintain the balance between toning down and standing out too much, since [Jae-sang] is a calm lead character who carries out the development of the film. So keeping the balance was something that I discussed a lot with the director,” Cho added. Although the movie is set in the past, Cho says the message of the film can still resonate with today’s audience.“The fact that greed can lead to a bad outcome is a message that can still resonate in today’s society. People in the movie jump into the power struggle to acquire a more prestigious and affluent life, only to be met with unfortunate consequences. The movie touches on what people should value in life.”“Fengshui” is the last film in production company Jupiter Film’s plan to release three period flicks. The first was “The Face Reader” (2013), directed by Han Jae-rim, and the second was “The Princess and the Matchmaker,” unveiled in February. While the 2013 release was a commercial hit, with 9.13 million tickets sold, the second film sold merely 1.34 million admissions. “Fengshui” was released on Wednesday, and is competing against other ambitious films including a period flick “The Great Battle” and crime drama “The Negotiation.”BY JIN MIN-JI [jin.minji@joongang.co.kr] source; http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=3053497

    Kim Sung Kyun Talks About His Friendship With Cho Seung Woo And Ji Sung’s Energy On Set CELEB Sep 14, 2018 by yshin Kim Sung Kyun recently praised fellow actors Cho Seung Woo and Ji Sung. On September 14, the actor sat down for an interview and talked about his upcoming film “Feng Shui” (working title). “Feng Shui” tells the story of a genius feng shui master named Park Jae Sang (played by Cho Seung Woo), who can change people’s fate through the ground’s energy, and those who try to capture the best land in order to become a king. In the film, Kim Sung Kyun plays Kim Byung Gi, an ambitious man who tries to enjoy wealth and honor through the ground. As the son of Kim Jwa Geun, a powerful man who rocks [the king’s] royal authority, he comes into conflict with Park Jae Sang and Heung Sun (played by Ji Sung). Although both actors were born in 1980, Kim Sung Kyun revealed that since Cho Seung Woo had an early birthday, they called each other hyung and dongsaeng [older brother and younger brother]. Kim Sung Kyun stated, “Seung Woo hyung was actually one year above me at school. I had a lot of respect for him. As an actor, I admire him a lot. I’m disappointed we couldn’t meet a lot on set. We had about two scenes together, but he’s an extremely pleasant person who makes others feel comfortable.” He continued, “I’m a huge fan. I think ‘Tazza: The High Rollers,’ ‘Chunhyang,’ and ‘The Classic’ were the most memorable [movies]. Although he was born in the early ’80s, he’s already like a veteran actor.” He added a joking message for Cho Seung Woo, saying, “I think that as a hyung, [you] need to be nicer from now on.” Kim Sung Kyun also talked about his feelings of respect for Ji Sung as he stated, “He’s always into his acting on set. He doesn’t have an ounce of laziness. He doesn’t let himself get distracted at any moment and only concentrates on his scenes. He’s also constantly moving.” He also added, “He’s even more amazing during action scenes. I made the effort to not lose to Ji Sung. Because he’s miles ahead running at the forefront, I thought I’d try to at least keep up with him.” He continued to talk about their action scenes, saying, “My body is stiff. I dislike working out. I think Ji Sung likes it, though. He’s good at using the swords and horseback riding. Isn’t he supposed to act opposite of me? We’re supposed to play off each other, but while practicing at the gym, the difference in skills was so great that I couldn’t keep up.” He also said, “[Ji Sung] is really earnest. Before we shot our action scene together, if I’d be resting, Ji Sung would always be practicing. So I’d look at that and start practicing as well.” The film will premiere on September 19.
