  1. Trying to post all the back-logged video clip links, but better yet, please go see @immorethant's prodigious potpourri of posts in SHS thread. Thank you soooo much @immorethant our best-Chingoo, for keeping us informed for these 3 long extra months of wait, and somehow we're almost here for the curtain call!! Perhaps a blessing in disguise, perhaps one more stroke of genius timing typical of the career arc of SHS the actress, all of South Korea seems so eager to get back to the movies, and what better ambassador to greet them to the silver screen than Shin Hye-Sun, and the Bae Jong-Ok the Innocent, as if to tell the SK people, "welcome back, it wasn't your fault! you are all innOcent!!". What drama! What history!! Maybe a movie theater outing experience like none other for everyone stampeding (with proper social distancing decorum of course) to the movies this week - may this movie and all who worked so tirelessly on it be remembered for a long time to come!
  2. From https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/404/0000267215 "Trembling"... Still Shin Hye-Sun's confession after 8 years 2020 Jun 07 5:03 pm [enews24 Gong Hong-Joo reporting] A business card received from the actress before the interview. On the front is printed "Ahn Jung-In, Esquire". It was the card offered for this promotion interview by Shin Hye-Sun. Her acting being her business card, Shin Hye-Sun's resolve for her new challenge was memorable. It's been 8 years since her debut. Receiving love from many for having steadfastly crafted her turf as an "actor's actor", Shin Hye-Sun has stepped up in her first film lead role through movie "Innocence". In the story, as ace lawyer at top law firm and Cha Hwa-Ja's daughter, Ahn Jung-In, for the duration of 110 minutes run time, with flawless acting she ably piques our curiosity for the 'truth'. Shin Hye-Sun's initiation as lead actress surpassed expectations. "Watching it live, it felt more real so it made me nervous. Have to watch it like a movie, but wondering why I did that one scene in that way, I could see some parts that I wish could have done better. I can't quite put my finger on which part, but just a feeling that I should have done a bit better, that kind of regret. As for the movie itself, on the whole, it moved faster than expected, so I was satisfied with that." Movie "Innocence" (dir Park Sang-Hyeon) is lawyer Jung-In (Shin Hye-Sun)'s 'chase for not-guilty evidence' story to uncover the sordid/evil truth which Mayor Choo (Heo Joon-Ho) and the village folk are hiding, to prove the innocence of her mother Hwa-Ja (Bae Jong-Ok), who, having lost her memory, has been cornered as the suspect in a murder case. A work based on a rice-wine pesticide murder incident in a remote country village, the country-side village backdrop was one of the points that drew Shin Hye-Sun to "Innocence". "Takes place in a country-side. Against that backdrop the feel I got from Jung-In's character felt distinctive and interesting. The village folk wearing baggy pants and talking in country accents contrasted with Jung-In speaking English from the first scene, shows her working as a lawyer with a sophisticated style. Those points stood out and also felt fun. Plus scenery of my country-side family came to mind and peculiar feelings came over me. To me, the country-side had always given me warm and care-free feelings, but the scenario portrayed of this village sticks it to you, feeling suffocated and makes you want to run away. The overturned feeling of what was my country-side image is what I thought was interesting about it." After having grown up in a nightmarish childhood, Jung-In is a character who had turned her back on such a family and lived fiercely alone. Trying to reveal her senile (demented) mother's innocence, fighting all alone (against great odds), this lawyer Jung-In's outward appearance and her confusing inner turmoil the closer she gets to the truth, (actress) Shin Hye-Sun portrays (untangles) with gravitas this narrative. But in order to breathe life into Jung-In's character, it wasn't easy to comprehend by herself, she tells. "In fact it was difficult to comprehend her. One of the things that made me ponder (repent of) about this work was that I couldn't precisely understand this character. Why she would say or do certain things I couldn't exactly keep straight in my head, so at times it felt burdensome going into the shooting. Whether what was expressed through my acting in the movie is correct or not, I still can't tell for sure, and I don't think there's one right answer, either. As for me, I seem to get much material help through the actual shooting process. Through working together with the director-nim and actors, my comprehension of the character and the situation became more clear. Of Jung-In's character, Shin Hye-Sun expressed, "felt like a fog over her", and "it may appear that right or wrong answers are clear for her, but on the inside that's not the case. While she may be an 'elite' now, she was a kid from poor country-side village; loves her mom and yet hates her too. On the inside she's complicated and noisy, but she gives off a calm exterior. Ambiguous like the fog, got from her a variety of feels like a murky noodle soup, so I tried to express those feels just so," she explained. Perhaps due to the same legal backdrop, Shin Hye-Sun's Ahn Jung-In of 'Innocence' and Young Eun-Soo of 'Secret Forest', noticing where these two characters intersect is quite fun too. In fact, director Park Sang-Hoon, in studying drama 'Secret Forest' for casting Shin Hye-Sun, found her articulation/enunciation and range of emotions surprising. "After finishing the script, gave it to her right away and her casting was decided," revealing the back story. "I think the director-nim saw 'Secret Forest' during script finalizing. Jung-In is a character with similarities with DA Young (Eun-Soo). If Eun-Soo is younger and gives off a well-to-do family daughter feel, Jung-In, is a kid from a dirt-poor village, studied with a steely resolve, in contrast. (Kind of) traumatized too, and sense of inferiority complex would have been stronger for Jung-In. There were plenty of emotional scenes requiring much physical and mental energy expenditure, too. Shin Hye-Sun says, "night before emotional scenes I tend to be very nervous. Not sure what you'll think of me, but I practice my dialog in the bathroom a lot. There's a mirror, good lighting, so it's a good environment to muster up your emotions. So while preparing for shoots I tend to stay in the bathroom for a long time for practice," she confessed. "But no matter how much I practice, there's a limit to preparing for emotional scenes. In the (jail) interview room scene, Bae Jong-Ok or myself, we intentionally did not look at each other's faces. The emotions might become too sympathetic. Then as soon as I saw her eyes, tears poured out. On the set, Bae Jong-Ok (honorific Sun-Bae-nim)'s persence herself is a big strength (to me). Timing-wise or emotion-wise, (she was) very helpful for my acting." Movie "Innocence", at the end of being postponed twice due to Corona-Virus (COVID-19), is scheduled to open on the 10th. (Of this) Shin Hye-Sun says, "what makes me the most nervous is whether my acting can get someone to feel immersed or not. Unlike dramas, it's difficult to know such things, isn't it, with movies? In dramas, in a short time one can verify the resulting work and can see in real time reactions to my acting, so the wait is shorter for the next step, in contrast with long wait times for film. So I'm always nervous. Ultimately I want to do better, but whether what I did was correct, or was well-received by other people, that curiosity and the wait is long. So the time for self-introspection gets drawn out longer," she confessed also. Shin Hye-Sun, through 'Innocence' has officially confirmed herself a screen actress. For her next work, she has confirmed tvN new drama 'Queen Cherin', and plans to continue her energetic work without rest. In her first historical drama work since debut, Bae Jong-Ok from 'Innocence' will also work with her this time too. Hinting at "a different relationship than in 'Innocence', a different kind of fun," Shin Hye-Sun's frank story telling continues. "As I've lived, there's been almost nothing I want to do with a burning passion. But as for acting, it's different. My line of work is where I get to devote my soul and my body with a burning passion, and as I do, at times feel the 'catharsis'***. 'Just-do-it acting is good acting', some say, but I think it's the right thing to devote to studying the scripts carefully. So I plan to keep working to my utmost as I am doing now." ***Catharsis - construed to mean gratification, satisfaction, relief.

  4. This is where the host asks 3 personal questions to see if she's INNOCENT of lying or she's really telling the truth - a truth detector. She passes with flying colors all 3. 1. Movie 'INNOCENCE' will definitely be a hit! Answer YES. 2. Consider yourself beautiful/attractive? Answer NO (but why feel a tad sad about it?). 3. Really having fun with this interview? Answer YES , coz she's real fan of his. But the real highlight is the tongue twister to certify once and for all her 'diction fairy' status. And she really nails this one, much to the delight of her delirious fandom. If you want to see more of what this guy does, search on '카피추' , pronounced 'Ka-Pi-Chu' (play on pokemon character name Pikachu). It's actually moist (촉촉) instead of chewy, but in English chewy works better, so do make sure to exercise with both versions. And then the second one is easier for western language speakers but gives you a good idea of what Koreans consider tongue twisters I guess. Hello my dear Chingoos. I almost went the entire month of May and half of April without logging on, and I almost forgot my password. Happy to see that the devotees here have kept the place warm and hopping. Thank you! That 10 minute segment of 본격연예한밤' was really funny.... It tells me much what kind of sense of humor SHS is into, that she knows many of KaPiChu's songs by heart and wanted to sing along. She looks so free and at home with him, not fully in control of her limbs as she spazzes out from joy! Thank you all my friends for all your devotions in this most-Meechuttso (craziest) of times. Let's keep going strong till we squeal with joy watching INNOCENCE and memorizing every line!
  5. She's so adorable here - she's getting her cheeks back! The Queen Cherin story sounds more and more interesting, doesn't it? Now while we wait for the next press release, let's speculate on who can be the 'wild' modern guy whose soul will have the unworthy privilege of entering into this Queen (Cherin? Queen-Goddess HyeSun)'s body. That could be a problem for some of us trying to erase that male visual coming out of her mouth - this could be as important a casting decision as whom they've already chosen as the King - because it is that guy whose mannerisms and his 'soul' that actress Hye-Sun will have to channel into her flesh. Gives me shivers. Stay healthy everyone - and @immorethant thank you for your adorable work from home video. You channeled all our bored souls well for us. And your Ed Sheeran video was sooo perfect. Thank you!
  6. Thank you @iffy21 and @Ni Wen Actor Kim Jung-Hyeon and Shin Hye-Sun will work together in "Queen Cherin" Sources for dramaland revealed on the 8th to Ilgan sports that Kim Jung-Hyeon has stepped forward as lead for tvN drama "Queen Cherin". Kim Jung-Hyeon will act as Joseon Dynasty's "Jeckyl and Hyde" King, Chul-Jong. Appearing on the outside as a mere dignified and not-formidable puppet king who is at least not taken to task by his vassals, but because of his psychopath like [behavior], is said to be "a King, yes, but the King of Pretension". What he fears, in fact, is to become a powerless King that they want and thus go to his grave not having accomplished anything, so hiding the truth of his dreams, he secretly prepares as he carries out his dreams of reforms. 'Queen Cherin' is the story of a wild horse of a man, for whom Republic of Korea was too small, whose soul is transported into Joseon dynasty's royalty, even that of a body of the queen - a harmony of disharmony. The story of him who is re-incarnated as Queen Cherin and who, along with Joseon's representative Cinderalla Man King Chul, experiences the roller coaster of a climb to status. An irreverant and sexy comedy that unfolds against the sexually austere backdrop of the Joseon Dynasty. Promises to stand out as a fresh genre not often seen in dramas. Kim So-Yong (Queen) into whom the soul of a man has entered, is played by Shin Hye-Sun. For the sake of her family, dreaming of being chosen by the King without a moment's rest, one who is doing (her) utmost believing that this is (her) raison d'etre with filial devotion to (her) father - but one day the soul who has entered her body who is not only insensitive to the gaze of others but having the personality of a running wild stallion. Soul vs the flesh, through this [forced] cooperation (control/harmony) between the incongruous (incompatible/disharmonious?), influenced by this flesh with exquisitely delicate and empathetic sensibilities, she will reincarnate into perfection [*** perfection of sould and flesh implied]. Director of "Gak-Si-Tal", "King's Face", "Hwa-Rang" fame Yoon Sung-Shik PD, and "Dr Prisoner" writer Park Gye-Ok is the script writer. tvN, latter 2020 will broadcast. Kim Jin-Suk reporting superjs@joongang.co.kr
  7. Why did you hide these? So adorable! I thought the bottom one the first part was just a gif going around and around without realizing that it was her spinning 5 times perfectly still. Thanks for reminding us, @mylovekge Yes, it just might be that SK is the first country that gets back to work fully and starts producing what they're best known for - the stuff and the people we're all addicted to! For many here, their raison d'etre.
  8. Thanks @immorethant for keeping this place alive and ticking. I think 2 new ones, these? Watching them again, still so very moving. https://twitter.com/Rilikedrama/status/1242327236234997760 And what's this? Somebody able to do a private viewing of Innocence alone?? Guilty of watching Innocence alone. This has been an interminably long month and each day.... Yet I can't rest at all. Love you all, stay strong and healthy, Chingoos.
  9. Lol, "notice of aliveness" in Korean - you are, if not a man trapped in a 19th century queen's body, surely a korean soul trapped in another Asian body @immorethant Daebak!! Happy Shut-In Drama-binges everyone (although I only wish I could).
  10. Thank you so much @Ni Wen chingoo!! Hooray!! The long awaited Sa-Geuk role!! Historical backdrop (sad): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Cheorin wife of one of the last Kings of JoSeon dynasty (25th) before the Japanese occupation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheoljong_of_Joseon Now what do we do until November??? EDIT: What is it with oori-baby Hye-Sun-ssi? She sure has a chip on her shoulder it seems. Never satisfied with working in existing genres, she wants to #breakthemold #startasman #timetravel #gendercross into #royalty and #makeusblush ?? EDIT2 - fixed horrible embarrassing typo above
