On the afternoon of July 3rd at Seoul Mapo-gu Sang-am MBC, MBC Monday-Tuesday drama ‘King Loves’ (Script Song Jina, Director Kim Sang Hyup) held a production press conference. PD Kim Sang Hyup, Im Siwan, Im Yoona, Hong Jong Hyun and Oh Min Suk came on site.

In the drama, Im Yoona will be playing the role of Eun San who receives the love of Im Siwan and Hong Jong Hyun.

When asked how she felt working together with the two men, she replied “(Im)Siwan oppa is truly like Won and (Hong)Jong Hyun oppa is like Rin. (Im) Siwan oppa’s soft image is strong but in reality when he acts, just like Won, his charisma is of a strong and masculine personality. On the other hand, I thought (Hong)Jong Hyun oppa had a strong image but he has a lot of considerate sides and mischievous sides. In reality, he took care of me well and adoringly so I had fun filming.”

After 10 Years, Yoon-a Says She's Still Learning About Acting


Source: The ChosunIlbo


This year has been a special one for Yoon-a, as it marks the 10th anniversary of her debut in showbiz as a member of Girls' Generation and as an actress. Over the past decade, she has made successful careers in both fields given that it's extremely hard to make a name in just one area of showbiz.


Having recently finished a long period series, "The King in Love," she finds herself wanting to grow more as an actress.


"It was a long project, and my character experienced a wide range of emotions. I received a lot of encouraging feedback. I think it sustained me and motivated me to become a better actor," she said.




"My main consideration when it comes to choosing a project is whether I think I can do it well," Yoon-a said. "I've had many offers to do a romantic comedy, but I haven't found a character that would suit me at my age. I'd love to do one of course, if I find a suitable character that's a good fit for me."


When it comes to acting, Yoon-a says, she feels hungry for more roles and experiences.


"I actually made my debut in acting a month before I debuted with Girls' Generation. But I haven't built up a filmography extensive enough for those years. I still have so much to learn about acting." She said. "I want to be an actress with a unique quality, so that people someday will recognize me for my irreplaceable strengths."

Four Korean cineastes, including Yoona of Girls’ Generation and director-actor Yang Ik-June, took home trophies at the 12th Asian Film Awards (AFA). 


At the event Sunday in Macau, singer-turned-actor Yoona received the Next Generation Award for her role in the action flick “Confidential Assignment,” where she played a minor character with a huge crush on a handsome detective (Hyun Bin) from North Korea.

Also recognized at AFA was actor-director Yang Ik-june, who was honored with Best Supporting Actor award for his role in Japanese filmmaker Yoshiyuki Kishi’s action movie “Wilderness: Part One.” He played a character in a permanent state of uncertainty with a speech impediment and extreme shyness. 


Among the technical awards, best cinematography went to Kim Ji-yong, who was behind the period drama “The Fortress,” while the best editing went to Shin Min-kyung of the political drama “The King.”
