00:10   MegaTrend star Shin Hye-Sun - there was a dark period in her past.

01:10   New face - Chris Johnson from California...

02:08   Today's topic/theme is "After long time of efforts, those stars who are finally shining brightly."

02:15   If you consider a 'hot' star, not only in the present but each nitty gritty event in the past also gets attention.

02:21   "Come-From-Behind (Life) Stars' Untold (secret) Stories"

02:28   The very first star, although it hasn't yet been a month in the new year (2018), chosen one of the most anticipated stars of 2018.

02:35   To give some  hints, "#Mega-Trend Actress"? "#Nation's Daughter-In-Law" "Kang Dong-Won Kiss Girl"

02:50   Bald guy (gay) - "this (KDW), of this I'm truly envious." 이거는 정말부럽네요 (laughs)
02:55   Many must be thinking that way, wouldn't they? Woman who kissed Kang Dong-Won - what could that be about?

03:00   Who is she? Yes, current K(BS) in My Golden Life, cast in Seo Ji-An role, Shin Hye-Sun-ssi.

03:15   5 years after her debut, she has been awarded a deeply meaningful prize, you watched the ceremondy didn't you?
03:20   Claiming the long-standing drama female actor Excellence Prize (2017), just like the name of the drama itself, she is an actress who's running in her Golden Life right now.

03:30   Shin Hye-Sun-ssi while receiving the Excellence Prize cried much, you see, and what made her deserving of the prize was that in 2016 through "Five Children" she was nominated for Newbie prize, Supporting actress prize, and Best couple prize, but did not receive a single one.

03:40   Voices: Oh really? Is that so?

03:43   (We all) Thought she'd receive, but at least this year for sure she would unconditionally get it - why? because MGL exceeded 40% (ratings, 43.2% shown) and last month, on the Korean drama actor brand recognition chart she rose to Number 1, in the drama genre as the Cinderella, meteoric rise....

04:00   Red lady: Correct. As you have stated, the drama itself exceeding 40%, epic ("w/o precedent and not to be surpassed") ratings attained, and getting it up to that level, that Shin Hye-Sun-ssi's role was huge has been evaluated and duly noted.
04:15   Looking forward to the past year-end awards, certainly, "상 하나는 받을 것 같다" (she would get One prize at least)... there was no way that it won't happen.  Others: of course....

04:25   Red lady: And even after having received the award, she didn't have much time to enjoy the happy moment, they say - because they are still in the middle of shooting, you know? There was a celebratory party scheduled after the ceremony, but the very next morning there was a MGL shooting schedule...
04:40   (SHS looking sad in the cold, not sure if practicing acting scene or sad in real life from the cold and the hardship)
04:42   They couldn't enjoy the party and everyone just had to go home.

04:50   And in the case of MGL, because virtually every scene SHS appears, so her screen time was so much that she wasn't in a situation to think about anything else, it is told.
 [@meechuttso - Wow, imagine how hard it must've been, really, makes me appreciate our Shin Hye-Sun's heroic effort all the more.]

04:55   Caption - Shin Hye-Sun - only focused on the drama (work).

04:57   Truly from last year and into this year continuing, is reigning with the very highest of popularity, it seems, and what do you think Shin Hye-Sun-ssi's appeal/charm/attractiveness??
05:00   "신헤선의 매력은 무엇일까?"

05:10   MC: I saw her in the ceremony, and ... compared to what I saw in the drama, she seems very, ... high-class image.
Caption - "드라마보다 굉장히 고급스러운 이미지"

05:20   She's tall too....

05:25   I've watched many of her appearances all along, and her metamorphosis for each character happens and acts very naturally.

05:40   Bald Hong Sun-Chuck - Me, she's not your protypical ideal of beauty, I have heard. (e.g., Kim Tae-Hee or Song Hye-Kyo). You know, those considered to be the most standard definition of beauty - such a beauty she doesn't seem to be, but she has charms ('is attractive').

05:53   Caption - Shin Hye-Sun who has the charms to make people fall for her - "사람을 빠져들게 하는 매력이 있는 신혜선"

05:58   When you watch this actress, while she does not possess the most vibrant colors, yet whatever colors you put over her, fit/suit her well - that type of actress... Shin Hye-Sun-ssi's very big strength, it seems.

06:08   For those who've done a lot of remodeling (i.e., pastic surgery), their roles get confused(?) but because she hasn't done much, you can build up any different kinds of (roles) on (her face), it feels.

06:17   That is true too, but when we watch female actresses, one angle is whether she has the innocent beauty (청순미) or not. That those who have the innocent beauty are the ones who go on to become top stars - this is their basic (foundational) appeal, I think.

06:28   Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, among them, has the innocent appeal, and is showing it to us.

06:34   Yellow/orange lady: I had done an interview with her once, and I had only seen her on screen and then got to do this interview with her - soon as I saw her I held her hand and said, "you are 10,000x more beatiful (pretty) in real life." "실물이 일만 배는 예뻐요."

06:45   When I said, "you are 10000 times more pretty in real life", in fact, that could be construed kind of as a not such a polite thing to say, right, but Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, smiling, as if joking, "I hear that sentiment often".

06:53   Dude in red: Similar to me. (implying that he hears that he's more handsome in real life often) (laughs)

06:57   MC: Don't they say they don't recognize you in real life??

07:00   Chris Johnson from Cali - From what I can see, what is very attractive (about SHS) for me, she seems very pure (순수해 보여).

Voice:  You watch the drama?

07:05   CJ: Yes, I watch the drama intently. Personally I much like Mak-Jang type dramas.

07:15   Female MC: Have you seen me much then? [ I guess she's a daily morning drama - mak-jang-fest star? ]

07:20   Is she much Mak-Jang?

07:25   MC: No she's not makjang, does makjang drama... CJ: Mak-jang professional....

07:30   CJ: The content of this drama, is a bit mak-jang-ish. In America they have dramas too, but this is the kind of stuff that can only happen in Korean dramas. Yes, unbelievab... unimaginable scenarios come out. Very novel too and totally engrossing.

Voice:  Enough for even Chris to acknowledge. Caption - Even to an American new and interesting.

07:52   Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, as you know, in MGL, is really in the middle of her 'drama work of a lifetime'. There truly are many praises from all corners, and while she has her natural acting abilities, there is also much she herself honed and refined ('ground and sharpened').
08:04   As for me, I am one of the people who really loves Shin Hye-Sun-ssi's voice.

4 scenes by SHS - 1. I am not Oppa's little sister. 2. Every day I wanted to die - it a world where my effort alone isn't enough. 3. I like you. Yes I like you I said I like you.  4. How can I not be mindful of you, you beggarly son-of-a...!!

08:18   And in order to properly get hold of the tone of her voice, previously she received vocal training*** and spent much effort trying to find the right tones that match (different scenes) well.
***Somewhere you can see my post on this thread about PowerVocal instagram post.

08:28   And the viewers, shall I call it strict(?) advertisement? The kind of advertisement that requires too highly refined or sophisticated feminine appearance that doesn't fit the current character's role, if one were to shoot CF with that look, there would be a sense of disconnect ('alienation'?), so she would forego the opportunity at big profit and focus solely on the character role, and she will do advertisements at a later time.

08:53   While Shin Hye-Sun-ssi is making this much of an effort, but in fact she wasn't the first choice for the role....

09:05   There were on the list of actresses those with more experience who could command more attention, viewership, etc., but the fact that this is a 50-episode ... passed ... and SHS had seized upon that opportunity.

09:30   And another actress who was on the list could have passed because this was a weekend drama, thinking mini-series would be the path to the top-stardom. But the fact is if you are cast as the lead actress in a KBS weekend drama, then from there it's truly fast-track to the top as an actress.

09:58   And we had told you that Shin Hye-Sun-ssi herself was not the first choice for MGL, well actually she had already been offered the lead in another really well known drama, so actually, I was in preparation to write that story, but the manger had blocked me - to tell you the truth right now, (SHS agency) called to say that "there is another drama which she can start on, but that she is keeping an eye on MGL (casting situation), that she badly wanted to get into MGL, and in fact if she can get into MGL, she would let go of everything else." So frankly she was waiting.

10:35   So our company (representing MGL casting) wrote her a letter to tell her that she has won the casting, and at the time Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, too, had been very much nervous because if MGL hadn't worked out she could have gone to another role, but that she would always be sad about that missed opportunity.

10:50   MC: Because (SHS) wanted to do "My Golden Life"...

10:55   Because she had so badly wanted to do the MGL, all the more she seems to have poured everything into this work.

11:05   Among moms too, recently, everyone wants to have her as their daughter-in-law. And my mom asked me about her but I didn't know much about her and couldn't reply, so I looked her up.

11:15   Many people thought Shin Hye-Sun, immediately after her debut, became a hot star, but to her there was an unfulfilled wish about her debut. This was 2012 work released as 'School 2013', and she had a very small role in which there may or may not be 1 line of dialog in all the episodes.

11:40   When she received her Excellence Prize, (because of such an experience) she may have teared up all the more we think, and "from the same broadcast station (KBS) that she could receive an award like this, emotions were new (unexpected), I didn't think such a day would come," she had expressed also.

11:55   From college on she really worked hard going to auditions. But the problem was she would not get past the paper submissions, and she would not even have opportunity for auditions. When her friends told her she had audtioned a 100 times and it's too hard, from SHS's situation, even getting rejected would be nice, if only she were to be even given a chance to fail, was her wish.

12:25   Therefore, whatever she does, there is a bit of a feeling of 'desperation' ('간절함'), for Shin Hye-Sun-ssi.

12:30   So how did she get cast in School 2013 then?

12:33   First off, the chance at the audition itself, was an extremely difficult process she says. She went to the audition, and noticed that the other hopefuls all had had long hair. Slightly permed long hair look. How she could be noticed by the judges, the producers, she struggled with that question briefly, then realized, ah, I should get a short cut.
12:55   That was a very precious long hair she had grown, since this isn't the only work she would try, and yet she cut it very short and went. If this wasn't going to work out she may have to grow it again, but... at any rate she was cast in this work. Even after his debut for some time there was sporadic work not being able work as much as she wished.

13:20   Right now, when she keeps getting these drama love calls, in this present moment she feels she must be very grateful for, and without ceasing, she will continue to work.

13:32   CJ - (quoting a Korean proverb): 될성부른 나무는 떡잎부터 알아본다 it is said. "A tree that will grow tall, you can tell from the very first leaf". (Others: ooh aah - (impressed by his wisdom and knowledge of Korean sayings)).

13:38   CJ: Shin Hye-Sun, too, would be included in this instance? (laughs)

13:42   Red lady: For Kim Woo-Bin, Lee Jong-Suk interview I went to the 'School 2013' shooting scene. And even back then, Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, was working without an agent. So she was taking care of all the arrangements, received messages, drove herself to the shooting location.

14:08   So in that classroom, all the actors are gathered together, and as you come and go you can see how each one is cared for by each agency, and really, a situation where you can't help but compare one against the other,....

14:25   Shin Hye-Sun-ssi was forthrightly (꿋꿋하게, not discouraged or cowering) going back and forth alone, sitting quietly by herself and looking at her script, (again) uprightly (꿋꿋하게) and with much effort who carried on her acting, is what remains in my memory, but frankly

14:35   Among the staff, because she was such a quiet person, couldn't say that she was someone that caught your eyes.
14:40   Whether this kid could succeed later, we had even worried about, but watching her do so very well like this, everyone is totally surprised I am told.

14:50   CJ: Without any inferiority complex, just being faithful to the task at hand... there's a reason why it's turned out like this (this well).
14:58   Red shirt dude: "He (CJ) keeps using difficult vocab words."

15:10   I was able to hear her story from the manager who chose Shin Hye-Sun-ssi, and this CEO at the time when he first saw her was a casting director then.

15:30   As a casting director you meet many actors from many agencies of course, and he says among them that Shin Hye-Sun stood out slightly as being independent. First off her face was pretty, and tallish, had 'possibilities', but her desire to work (hard) seemed unique and special.

15:42   So the casting director told her, at some point in the future I will be doing manager work again, and when I set up my company would you come work with me?, he requested. And truly as almost by miracle, at the time that the casting director was setting up the company, Shin Hye-Sun herself was looking for an talent agency, too.

16:00   SHS: CEO-nim, can you please take me? "대표님 저와 함께 해주시겠어요?"

16:02   MC: It was fate wasn't it.

16:05   Those congratulating her from all around because this was the first time she started receiving managment from a real legitimate talent agency. Because of that, everyone working together in a real family-like atmosphere.

16:20   Within 4 or 5 years after debut she has succeeded - from a small role debut to weekend lead role top prize in 5 years... it's enough to make one tear up, and it feels like it has taken some time, she's not a newbie.

16:35   Each year she did 2~3 (drama) work steadily. You know of them.

16:43   First off, Cho Seung-Woo, Bae Doo-Na's "Secret Forest".

16:48   Jeon Ji-Hyeon, Lee Min-Ho's "Legend of the Blue Sea".

16:52   Park Bo-Young's "Oh My Ghostess". She kept building up her filmography.

16:58   She appeared, but she doesn't remain big in your memory, right?

17:00   Ironically, when she began to receive attention was a single role without a dialog

17:10   The movie "Violent Prosecutor".  Voices: "She was in that?"

17:20   Actually VP recorded nearly 10 million viewers.

17:28   Kang Dong-Won-ssi the woman who kissed him.
17:44   But imagine. When you say Kang Dong-Won, ... although many actresses, no kiss scenes....

18:00   And that kiss scene, was hot and well done. So SHS's nickname - "KDW's Kiss Girl"
 :w00t:

18:13   Guest host in white - For this role I, too, had auditioned.
Everyone - For reals?? !!! Wow!!

18:20   MC: Should have done it.

18:25   Of course I wanted to do it too. I even knew at the time that it's with Kang Dong-Won.

18:35   MC: Because she looks elegant and sheik....
18:40   I am? Really? [MC tries to make her feel better by telling her she looked too hot to be a clerk, unlike SHS.]
18:50   Her white fur like a 'hip hop swag' wrapper.

18:53   MC: Didn't work out?
18:54   No it didn't. Watching the movie (clapping her hands), that should have been me. (LoL!)
19:00   MC: You must try your best at everything.
19:09   Of course I tried my best - it's Kang Dong-Won-ssi. Caption - For sure next time.

19:15   But what makes Shin Hye-Sun's heart race is another man.
19:25   In her grade school, watching 'Autumn Tale', she had a crush on Won Bin (oppa).
19:35   To meet Won Bin (oppa) I must become an actress, she resolved.

19:40   What made today's Shin Hye-Sun-ssi - can be said, is Won Bin.

19:48   It's common when an entertainer becomes famous, you hear that they changed.
19:54   Is there something you reporters hear regarding Shin Hye-Sun-ssi?

19:55   Baldy: Your shoulder a bit more square when you walk??

20:00   Red Lady: She greets (everyone) really well. And when asked her close friend, says so far she's still very polite (well-mannered).

20:15   And after MGL, about 10 new projects (offers) have come in. So she's looking at those, and ad spots, too, many offers have been coming in now, and even as so many (love calls) coming in, she's not changed at all (yet), and as the 'polite actress' she is known for still.
20:40   The manager says that frankly lugging around SHS's profile and trying to convince (sell) was very difficult. But now, if he stays put people call him so much and "Hye-Sun is the one feeding me" (making him rich).

21:00   I asked the CF agency how much her CF revenue is, and he tells me, "hit a goldmine" (or 'motherlode!').

21:09   Shin Hye-Sun is 2018's most hot actress.

21:14   If you look at her CF so far, you have what, Pizza, Ginseng-sucking, now things have changed. Because in her Seo JiAn role, with her 20's-30's women's most desired outfits, expected to get many offers from fashion and apparel.

21:33   Compared to now, 5-fold, upto 20-fold increase in her price is possible.

 

 

 

 

This episode was such apt tribute to our great Actress, the star of this humble but loving thread - the incomparable Shin Hye Sun !!  :innocent:

@meechuttso  Oh..the translation of this clip is the thing that I've been waited for many months dying with curiosity to know what they talked about her.

 

I don't know how can I thank you enough for this. I hope these gifs can tell how grateful and happy I am right now.  :kiss_wink::blush: :relaxed::innocent:  I will spend my time re-watch the clip and enjoy that translation of all the praise for our Shin Hye Sun.

This is the proof of how well she had eyes for selecting a good script and the way she decided to wait for MGL shown that she made decision on how she felt passionate for that work, even it's a weekend-drama. She listened to the sound of her heart rather than from the others (this recalled me of Seo-Ri's decision :P). 

I hope she selected to do 'Innocent' and 'One and Only Love' with this same reason too.

Keep fighting our beloved Shin Hye Sun !  :kiss_wink: Don't think, feel !!!

This video is totally promoting and honouring SHS. Somebody needs to put this clip on YT with subs, wish I knew how to do it.

 

That lady in orange was totally expressing my sentiments! Thank God, I’m not the only one who finds Hye Sun’s voice attractive. I thought maybe I was just simply obsessing. :lol:

 

I’m glad she fought/waited for MGL. Even though people go gaga over her last show more I feel, but even with me ... after watching everything ... it’s MGL who I keep going back to as well! Be it her performance, her chemistry with PSH or the love story! I just can’t get enough of it! Though in Still17 & HOD, she proved how well of a command she has over her body ... she proved her versatility ... gained more international fans ... but there’s something really special about MGL.

Personally MGL was a drama that i would never want to watch again, though it was THE role that propelled her to lead actress status and lots of casting offers.

 

Good script? NO. The story went haywired halfway and never came back to track. I won't elaborate because I have said enough then and wouldnt want to go back to that torturous period of watching the drama. 

Good chemistry with PSH? NO. I feel so uncomfortable and toxic watching this couple among all of SHS dramas. PERSONALLY. I have never ever watch any drama that I feel he's stalking her when he's actually wooing her. This says so much. 

 

Why does Hyesun wants to do MGL so badly then? My analysis is as follows. 

1. It's a lead role in a KBS weekend drama. That KBS weekend drama slot have always boasts the best ratings. She knows the impact of this slot because she's been previously in FC in the same drama slot as a supporting role but already received much love.

2. It's a lead role that her scenes are more than anyone else even the male lead. I remembered reading an interview that she said she was so happy after reading her script because she's in almost every scene.

3. It's a 50 episode long drama and being the lead for that long 7 months puts her in the best position to achieve continued exposure and screen time to let more people know about the existence of her as a newbie actress.

 

Just my personal views. Im sorry if MGL was special to you guys here but it was that torturous for me. The only best part was seeing how Hyesun emoted and  acted so well in the role and getting all her due recognition. All said, no one can nail that role like how she did. She's just meant to be Seo Ji-an.

Wow didn't know about this too. But I thought she was supposed to take Jisoo role at first? Now now I'm curious which drama was that :lol:. Could be a mini series...

 

How can I ever thank @meechuttso for this translation! Like what I said I already felt happy just listening to them saying her name, now that I read the translated parts I'm on cloud nine! 

 

I trust her choices. Am very sure Innocent and Dan Only Love is going to do so well too!

My wild guess is 'Temperature of Love'    Because it started airing during the same time of MGL (Sep2017) and the age of female lead character is not much far from SHS.  (I recalled that UEE turned down MGL offer on Jun 6,  2017,  SHS confirmed MGL lead role on Jun16 and Seo Hyun-Jin confirmed 'Temperature of Love' later in July.) 

 

That's the destiny she had to play with YSJ after MGL. And because she missed that chance, so she kept talking about him as we saw in 30but17 interview.    LOL :P

 

Have a good day everyone !!  :relaxed:

She was supposed to do TOL? I’m glad she didn’t cause SHJ nailed that character in my opinion! But I could see her doing it as well! Ah, it’s hard for me to be biased cause I love both of them equally. :lol:

 

Can we get updates on SHS though? I wonder what she is up to. Somebody need to send a serious letter to her company regarding her Ninja ways. lol

Btw, does anybody know how far Hye Sun’s scene is in The Violent Prosecutor? Everybody talks about it ... don’t feel like watching the whole movie!

I had no inclination to watch it either, but after watching the whole thing, a recommend! I think KDW is definitely something to rage over if you were his fan and wanted him to save his lips for you only - he's so fine in a way that's different from other k-drama male leads. He really grew on me - I wouldn't mind, 'Nonviolent Bookkeeper' - the sequel (he goes back to the 'electoral district chapter bookkeeper' - SHS - to make amends for his scoundrel past, then falls for her all over again, LoL).:crazy:

Apart from legendary KDW kissing scene (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2Y6zamR-tE) , she had just one another short scene here after that kiss.

I so love that gif of her in a panic the morning after - wonder if they all found out she was the leak source.

19 hours ago, immorethant said:

That's all for our SHS's appearance. 

Yes, but @immorethant sweetie, you from the first time you joined here (not long ago), have a knack for creating and nailing the gifs I always wanted to do but was too lazy or busy - I don't think anyone's ever done a gif of that scene - but I watched that scene over and over becoz, well becoz we're SHS fan-addicts - it's like the back story of what happened from which you can write a whole new movie script. And however millisecond short, SHS has mastered the art of making that moment count on screen - perhaps just out of sheer necessity, as you've been reading from her difficult start in the business, where she maybe had one single one-line scene out of a whole drama mini-series. She had to get tough! She had to get good! Adversity made oori-baby what she is today!

So in that sense I treasure the 'other scene' from VP that nobody talks about - it's 100% SHS and she just nails it like nobody else could have. :phew:

So in that sense I treasure the 'other scene' from VP that nobody talks about - it's 100% SHS and she just nails it like nobody else could have. :phew:

Couldn't agree more, it's short scene but she nailed it with combination acting of feeling guilty+embarrassed+shocked+beautiful :wub: 

 

Sometime I watched her movie (this 'VP'  and 'A day') and felt little bit sad because she seems to have less screen time than the time she had from movie interview :crazy: .  I think she might have actually shoot more scenes but they may be cut off when the movie was edited due to film length, so the directors and co-actors might see how talent she is on the set , but for us audience, we just want to see her more.

 

That's why 'The Mother Earth' is my favorite movie of SHS so far (which I watched it so many times).  It may be a short film but it's the first time she's female lead in movie (and her acting is so natural).  And that's why I'm delighted for 'Innocent' , which she will dominate most of screen time.

 

This below link is list of coming 2019 movie, you may see most important lead roles are focused on male characters (I have no objection for that, because it's normal thing), just a few script that emphasize on female role (most are comedy or rom-com).  So even 'Innocent' was mentioned just 1 line almost at the end of the list, I'm still glad she chose this serious role to show her talent and I think the PD of this film is glad to have her on board too.

I don't know how can I thank you enough for this. I hope these gifs can tell how grateful and happy I am right now.  :kiss_wink::blush: :relaxed::innocent:

Since we now know that she's known as the 'Polite Actress' , or 'Well-mannered Actress' in the industry, for your next scavenger hunt, @immorethant you can collect or make gifs of her bowing? There are many good ones. B) We can all guess what @kokkuri33 would put at the top of that list. :phew:

How can I ever thank @meechuttso for this translation! Like what I said I already felt happy just listening to them saying her name, now that I read the translated parts I'm on cloud nine!

Although this was such a great program where 8 people sit around praising her for 20 minutes that I would have translated it even if they told me not to, it still feels good to hear again, thanks and appreciation, maybe becoz SHS herself, her story is such a wonderful thing, and in a way we're all learning to be a bit more grateful as we read her stories and see what drives this admirable woman - so a simple act of saying thank you and sharing, it feels like we're all being little bit like her, soaking up some of her positive energy and wishing our best for one another in this little but warm place here.:wub:

I’m glad she fought/waited for MGL. Even though people go gaga over her last show more I feel, but even with me ... after watching everything ... it’s MGL who I keep going back to as well! ...

{snip}

but there’s something really special about MGL. 

Yes @jakey09 you've come to a good place at a great time. I appreciate all your thoughts and viewpoints becoz it reminds me of 2016 when I first got so curious about her too during 5-children, how under-appreciated she was but how refreshing she was in every way to my ears and eyes the more I read about her. And we may not all agree on everything here - if you look back a year you can find ample evidence of my challenges with MGL too, but there's no denying that our Actress is someone who is very bright, knows what she's getting into, is always willing to work hard (cow-mode) and still has much more she wants to express as an artist.

Whether one drama or 3 dramas (or movies) a year, I would like to think that over her long and illustrious career, all these steps she's taking now we can look back on and see how she couldn't have done better becoz she's always doing her very best and leaving the rest to (the drama-gods or whatever you want to put here). That's what I admire about this actress the more I learn about her.

Although the facts were all known to those of us who have been on this thread, it was just super heart-warming to watch in the format of that program (Rumor Has It) where they take turns discussing a pre-scripted exposition and analysis of what it is about her that we are all drawn to. They covered all the bases, and so I don't have much else to add - it was just great to nod along and notice everyone else notice the little things we've all been noticing all along. :phew:B):wub:

13:32   CJ - (quoting a Korean proverb): 될성부른 나무는 떡잎부터 알아본다 it is said. "A tree that will grow tall, you can tell from the very first leaf". (Others: ooh aah - (impressed by his wisdom and knowledge of Korean sayings)).

13:38   CJ: Shin Hye-Sun, too, would be included in this instance? (laughs)

One of my faaaavorite moments of the program. I love this Chris Johnson guy, whom I've never heard of before - but even with a bit of accent his command of the Korean was quite impressive, and it made you pay attention to what he was saying more - he's a fan. She's still so young, especially as an actress since her debut was quite late, but it's a really nice time of 'intermission' to reflect on not just Shin Hye-Sun's brilliant acting, but the actress the person herself and her deep and courageous story of her quite exemplary character from the 'no-name' phase of her development. A great tribute, and I feel positively honored to be able to share such a heart-warming story with all my Chingoos here!

@meechuttso Actually I feel there’s a difference in viewing when you watch something live and then when you binge watch. I experienced that ... when watching a show live you go through all kind of frustrations and emotions. Since I binged watched MGL, maybe I didn’t have time to go through all kind of emotions/frustrations. 

 

Plus, I’m a melo kind. I love melo love stories with happy ending. Maybe it was more up my ally. :lol:

Yes, what I love as much as watching her acting is seeing people praised and talked good things about her (like we are dedicating this page doing now). Just reading those comments or see nice pics from her fans already made me happy (may be a bad habit of mine lurking on people's SNS but I just want to know how others think about SHS).

 

This one is example of comment that made my day. :blush::love:

I have to erase their name for their privacy. First they talked about LOTBS and mentioned SHS and her latest dramas. What I love here is how her 2 new dramas last years (30but17 and HOD) successfully increased her popularity and admiration, and converted more fans. :glasses:  The more she worked and the more people watched her work, they just couldn't help fall for her .

When I watched live drama, I also got frustration too....from having to wait for the next episode to come out next week :joy: LOL.  But probably because of that, I ended up watching 3 times for each episode while waiting (1 time of korean live, 1 time of Eng sub, 1 time of local sub), not counting the time re-watching after live (this applied for SHS's drama only).    So don't be surprise if sometimes I may be too emotional from watching it too much.  But it's also fun to watch drama during live broadcasting because I can (lurk around and) read lots of comments when the topic and the discussion was still hot (and didn't have to read many spoilers too) . :P 

 

One example of difference btw live watching and binge watching is that when people watched 30but17 live, I read lots of comments saying the pace is slow , because audience waited for the whole week with lots of expectation dying to have the truth revealed or to see kissing scene.  Comparing with the comments I read from people binge watching this drama later, less complained about slow pace.

Recently I’m addicted to Tiffany Young’s Lips on Lips & every time I hear that song it reminds me of Hye Sun! :joy: Maybe something to do with her sexy biting habit. If anybody wanting to make MV on Hye Sun ... they can use that song! I swear that song is so her! :yum:

Sorry for too much talking....:P

 

Sometime I love reading old news and old comments, it gives me a feeling like I come from the future and know what will happen later and to see what were people's speculations or opinions about the news (some were surprisingly correct and some were not even close)  :phew:

 

Reading the old news when we heard SHS confirmed for MGL and 30but17, here is plot summary in the news.

 

Shin Hye-sun, if she confirms, will play a marketing team contract employee Seo Ji-ahn, who is a reliable worker with a bit of a competitive side, an optimistic outlook on life, and a playful personality. She lived a princess-like life until her first year in high school when her father’s company went bankrupt. Now she must put on a brave face, enduring unjust criticism, to achieve the coveted status of a permanent employee.   (from MGL news on Jun 16 ) 

 

"Thirty But Seventeen" is about a genius violinist named Woo Seo-ri, who ends up in an accident that leads to a coma at age 17. Seo-ri regains consciousness 13 years later, at age 30.  (from 30but17 news on March 23)

 

Spoiler

 

This comment recalled me of OAOL confirm/deny situation. :joy: 

"Yang Se Jong’s agency responded that they never got such offer. His name was most likely just thrown there. Idk what SBS is really thinking.."

 

 

 

If you look at the plot synopsis when we first heard about those dramas, there's a lot that in the scripts that weren't mentioned here (e.g. Chaebol's daughter plot in MGL or Woo-Jin's storyline in 30but17 not mentioned until May's news), but both dramas turned out to be big hit.   Hence, reading this old news also calmed my curiosity about 'One and Only Love'  and gave me hope that there will be lots of interesting things in 'One and Only Love' plot that yet to be revealed.

https://news.v.daum.net/v/20190221050242919

 

The 6th E-Daily Cultural Award

 

Spoiler

 

(from google translation)

The 6th annual  'E-Daily Cultural Award', which confirms the strength of the performing arts and feels the impression once again will be will be held on 26th (Feb) at 7 pm at the Sejong Cultural Center in Sejong-ro, Jongro-gu district, Seoul.

 

'E-Daily New Cultural Grand Prize' will be selected as the best work of the six categories including theater, classical, dance, traditional music, musical, and concert, all of which were filled with tranquility and laughter during the year. Rather than choosing the most successful and most successful first-class work, it is a place to celebrate and cheer up with 'praiseworthy works' considering current influences and future possibilities.

 

The full-scale awards ceremony will start with the award of the Grand Prize of the six categories. A panel of 54 judges, consisting of nine people in each category, selected the best performances of the performances of the past year.

 

The winners of the six categories are actors Lee Young-eun, Shin Hye-Sun, and Won Ju-wan and singers Sul Ha-yoon, Park Jung-min and Yoon Ji-sung .......(the list goes on )

 

On this day, the award of 'E-Daily Cultural Grand Prize' will be announced for most significant work of 6 best works in 6 categories. It will be presented with the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Prize of the highest honor to be 'Star of Stars'. It is a result of the vote of 54 judges, the online voting of the general public, and the heated (열띤) discussions of the Korea Daily Cultural Awards.

 

List of last year winners  https://www.soompi.com/article/1113279wpp/winners-5th-edaily-culture-awards

 

 

(However, after reading the news , I still don't understand which award SHS will get  :wacko: because it seems the 6 areas will be theater, dance, traditional music, musical, concert, classic ????  and they already got winner list here http://culture.edaily.co.kr/Board/List/ :blink: ...Or it may be another SHS mentioned in the news ??? :sweatingbullets:  So I think I should put in the hidden comment while waiting for conformation.)

 

(edited)

After I read again , I think SHS will be award presenter (시상자로는 배우) , sorry for the google mis-translation  LOL :P   but if she dance ballet well in 'One and Only Love' she may get award next year.

@immorethant you are way more eager to please than even my mom's puppy. I feel so powerful - I mention something, and there it is! You've nailed it - and much faster and comprehensively than I could have imagined - although with you, my expectation is going up more and more it's so high now, some day you won't please me with mere high efforts, LoL.

It would be funny. The episode would be called, "Knowing Bros' Bowing Sistar".

Except as you might know, the guest celebs use Banmal (반말, colloquial non-honorifics) to the older hosts becoz they're supposed to all be classmates. It would be funny if she was the first guest who's habitually using honorifics and can't get herself to 'lower her speech'. I'd pay good money to see that - but most of her fans hate Seo Jang-Hoon the tall guy being matched up with Oori-Baby (from Ugly Offspring - where she bowed, banged her forehead but got the grand prize from @immorethant for her performance just now).:dizzy:

Yes, I'm looking forward to this - she has more fun that way. Maybe she's getting ready to rub shoulders with these awardees for more 'cultural' works and performances. Any sight of her, really, would be a sight for our SORE eyes that have not beheld her in so long.

Oh... how I missed out this one, yesterday I tried to think of the scene of Yeon Tae's bowing and I recalled from my faded memory she have 1 scene with Sang Min.  But after I checked (probably I checked the wrong episode) :P It turned out that she just nod in that scene.

 

Writing this suddenly makes me recall this another favorite classic bow. :kiss_wink::love:
