It's about time for a JDY thread, good for you... yoonah, for taking the lead. :) She's a chameleon indeed.

Jeon Do-youn's multiple hits stem from passion for acting

Ironically, a certain similarity runs between the two utterly different characters of a seedy tearoom waitress and a gorgeous daughter of the president when played by Jeon Do-youn, one of the nation's most bankable actresses.

In the two contrasting characters, viewers discover a similar naive and fragile soul which seems to speak for itself. The 32-year-old actress fills up every role she takes with the same honest soul, giving life to the fictional characters.

Thanks to the nation's acting queen, director Park Jin-pyo's movie "You Are My Sunshine" and the SBS weekend primetime drama "Lovers of Prague" are overwhelmingly popular simultaneously. The movie is currently a No. 1 box-office hit, filling 917,000 seats in the first week of release, and the drama is also enjoying a commanding popularity with an over 20 percent viewer rating in its first week.

200509280017.gif

Jeon Do-youn in "You Are My Sunshine" (left) and "Lovers of Prague"

In "You are My Sunshine," Jeon plays the role of a pitiful tearoom waitress who is also a sex worker. The waitress moves to a rural area away from Seoul to escape her abusive husband, and later falls in love with a farmer who showers her with love and gives her new hope. But as the cruelty of life flows, she is faced with the fact that she is infected with HIV, and her new love turns into another despair.

From the hardened woman, Jeon manages to bring out a fragile soul which arouses the viewers' sympathy. When played by Jeon, the woman is no longer just a pitiful sex worker, but instead, becomes a vulnerable - and perhaps even humdrum - woman with a lust for love and affection.

The same effect occurs in the TV drama "Lovers of Prague," when Jeon turns the charming daughter of the nation's most powerful man into a clumsy woman who likes eating junk food on the streets like every young Korean woman. From this character that appears to have everything - wealth, fame and beauty - Jeon manages again to bring out a soul of a naive and ordinary woman who has a lust for love like everyone else.

When a first love announces that he is leaving her, the "superwoman" replies "So, does this mean I'm being dumped?" without much feeling. But through Jeon's acting, viewers can see how much hurt the character is holding back in those numb words.

It is rare for a movie and a drama with the same leading actor or actress to become major hits at the same time. And often, actors and actresses avoid such cases, due to the risk of confusing audiences.

But Jeon managed to pull both roles off perfectly without causing any confusion.

While presenting lifelike acting for two completely different characters, Jeon never fails to turn the roles into her own, by blowing her own soul into each character.

When Jeon made her debut in the campus romantic drama "Our Heaven" in 1992, she was recognized as "just another" young and charming actress who arrived in TV land.

But since the 1997 movie "Contact," Jeon is considered by producers to have established herself as one of Korea's most-wanted actresses for the big screen.

Unlike other popular actresses who often face setbacks after a few major hits, Jeon's acting career has been a string of successes with hits like "Harmonium in My Heart" and "Happy End."

Jeon is regarded as an actress who has a "perspective-view" for choosing the right roles that can be best acted by her. And after making a choice, Jeon immediately pours all of her passion into the role.

"Often, it's hard to get back to real life after I finish a movie or a drama, because I truly believe that I am the character while the shooting is in process," Jeon once said in an interview with a local monthly magazine. "It's a bit like suffering from a broken heart, seeing from a fact that I always end up mourning over the characters as if they had been my lovers."

While acting, Jeon chooses to remain an "ordinary" person you expect to find on the streets, unlike other actresses who often strive to stand out from other people. Thus to women, Jeon is someone they could never hate or be jealous of, and to men, she becomes a symbol of an ordinary but lovable woman whom they hope to meet in real life one day.

Jeon's major power on the screen and TV was evidently not formed in one day. The actress' continuous efforts to develop a "sixth sense" for the right roles and to grasp viewers' expectations appears to have brought her the current success.

Jeon Do Yeon, Next Year I Will Marry

20050923_20_01.jpg

Jeon Do Yeon's love is bold. I don't know how she feels about her love described as "bold", but as I sat across her during the interview, I could not help but think so. She was honest about her experience in love, and she possessed unshakeable hope and conviction in love. Once a person crosses into the thirties, both men and women have scars from past love experiences and tend to settle for something less than love or give up on love completely. Jeon Do Yeon, on the other hand, says "love is a topic that can never be talked about enough, and there's always something more to say." And through her current movie "You Are My Sunshine" (directed by Park Jin Pyo, produced by b.o.m. Film Production Co., Ltd) which hit the theaters Sept. 23, she talks about love.

The Woman Who Loves Love

Jeon Do Yeon is a favorite of melodrama movies, and has been holding fast to her favored genre by filming only melodrama movies. The movie "You Are My Sunshine" is also a story of love in the traditional melodrama frame. She admits, "I do not feel too attracted to movies that do not deal with the theme of love." A transformation for Jeon Do Yeon stays within the frame of melodrama, showing different types of love.

"There are many different types of love I have yet to do in movies, and "You Are My Sunshine" is a movie that deals with love in a different light from my previous works," she says. Her previous movies like "The Harmonium in My Memory", "Scandal", and "My Mother, The Mermaid" dealt with a one-sided, almost platonic love. But in this recent film, she is the receiver of love. One way to characterize the love she receives is to say that it is "overwhelming." Whether such love does exist is almost doubtful.

She states, "I've been the giver and receiver of love many times. But this kind of love, I've never received before. And while filming the movie, I was able to reconsider love. I will not loose my faith in love."

Jeon Do Yeon and the Image

Jeon Do Yeon has multiple images, and if her fans were to state her image, the answers would vary. The most commonly acknowledged image is that of a "white slate." She seems to absorb whatever pictures projected onto her, and at the same time she seems to erase them as easily. Of those many images she has created through her movie roles, one image that cannot be left out is that her characters are all honest. For those with a mentality of "my love is romance, other's love is an affair", she is honest to the point where it reaches the point of boldness. The character Eun Ha in "You Are My Sunshine" is also no ordinary woman, who goes from being a tearoom waitress to a victim of HIV, Eun Ha lives a life of adverse fortunes.

According to Jeon Do Yeon, "the thought that certain roles might hurt my image has never crossed my mind. I believe that if an actor is preoccupied with the image, then it limits the actor's potentials and ultimately becomes the actor's loss."

Dreaming of Marriage

She is now thirty-two years old. At this time in life, a person can feel drained and dream of becoming a different person. And Jeon Do Youn is not exception. She is now looking toward marriage, the traditional step in life. "When the right time comes..." is the most common response to marriage by most celebrities, but Jeon Do Yeon gives a different answer. She firmly states, "next year." To use her expression, "I don't have a special other at the moment, but I have a strong, though unfound, feeling that I will marry next year."

"Every time I go to a fortune teller, I"m always told I'll be married next year. And even though I'm not firm believer of fortune-telling, it’s still a consolation to be told so. I’m quite simple-minded, aren't I?"

The Contact (1997)

Starring: Han Seok Kyu, Jeon Do Yeon, Choo Sang Mi

Screenplay: Jang Yoon Hyeon, Jo Myeong Joo, Kim Eun Jeon

Director: Jang Yoon Hyeon

Genre: Romance, Drama

http://movie.naver.com/

Stills

th_contact_still_1.jpg th_contact_still_2.jpg th_contact_still_3.jpg th_contact_still_4.jpg th_contact_still_5.jpg th_contact_still_6.jpg

The Contact was a breakthrough hit in 1997 that catapulted Jeon Do-yeon to stardom and took many Korean viewers by surprise: they had never expected such an urbane, meticulously constructed, intelligent melodrama from Korean filmmakers. The Contact is indeed an immensely well-crafted film: it cannot be brushed off as a gimmick movie about an internet romance ("A boy and a girl chat in the internet: they fall in love: will they recognize each other when they meet offline?"), or a star vehicle for Jeon and Han Suk-kyu, wonderful as they are in their respective roles. However, even after watching the film three times, and for each time being thoroughly absorbed and entertained by it, I still find the film a bit artificial and pandering to the fantasy of its target audience, which the producer admitted was young female workers ("office ladies").

The film is masterfully orchestrated by Director Jang Yoon-hyun. He had studied cinema in Hungary and co-produced and edited a powerful leftist polemic Before the Strike,(1990) and yet for his own directorial films, The Contact and Tell Me Something, (1999) he chose to make big-budgeted commercial products operating within the boundaries of melodrama and horror-thriller genres. For that reason, and perhaps also due to the paucity of his directorial output (he has been more active as a producer in recent years) Jang is seldom discussed in the same breaths with such auteurs as Im Kwon-taek, Kim Ki-duk and Hong Sang-soo. However, in my opinion, Jang is one of the most visually interesting directors currently working in Korean cinema. I am always intrigued by his color schemes, (in The Contact, blues and purples contrasted to beiges and greens, for instance) that call to mind the Italian masters of 1960s and 70s, and his blockings and camera setups are interesting without calling attention to themselves (Greatly aided by his Director of Cinematography Kim Seon-bok, also responsible for Shiri [1999], JSA [2000] and My Sassy Girl [2001]). Yet, Jang is not a stylist-for-the-sake-of-style-only: his "pictures" are for the most part subordinated to the art of storytelling. Indeed, he is several miles ahead of many younger, supposedly more visually-oriented Korean directors in terms of the economy, efficiency and originality of his visual idioms.

One problem I have with The Contact is its inability to transcend the melodramatic codes embedded in Korean cinema, despite its sophistication. The screenplay by Jo Myeong-joo (Love Wind Love Song [1999], Over the Rainbow [2002]) tries way too hard to make it difficult for the two leads to hit off, and once they hit off, to keep the audience at the edge of their seats in expectation of their physical encounter. The big payoff, expertly filmed and edited, is crowd-pleasing to be sure, but by then chunks of melodramatic cliches, including that overused bag of chips-on-the-shoulder known as the "trauma resulting from a friend/lover/sibling's suicide," have been mixed into the narrative. Another problem is that I cannot muster much sympathy for the character of Dong-hyeon, played by Han Suk-kyu. Yes, Han's acting skills and star charisma do strive to make Dong-hyeon appealing, but I still find the latter rather charmless, excessively moody, pedantic, and male-chauvinistic. (I admit that there is something about Han Suk-kyu lecturing women in non-honorific Korean that makes me feel like I am listening to a dentist's instrument working on a root canal... which I would like to think of as my "Dr. Bong problem") After having seen the film three times, I am still doubtful that its lead characters could have a decent chance at a romance, much less a happy marriage.

Dressed in jeans, overalls and ugly pastel-color shirts and her hair done in a decisively unflattering perm for most of the movie, Jeon Do-yeon as Su-hyeon makes a daring choice of presenting herself as a plain, homey figure, perhaps even subject to bouts of girlish delusion. Her gamble pays off handsomely, as we cannot help but be drawn to her warm, thoughtful personality. However, I must confess that I find Choo Sang-mi's character Eun-hee much more interesting than Su-hyeon. Eun-hee is an independent career woman, a go-getter who is open about the nature and direction of her sexual desire, and quite free from clinging to a done relationship. (The lead characters, in contrast, spend nearly the entire running time waffling about their "traumatic" past love affairs) An "upgraded" version of Eun-hee can be seen played by Lee Young-ae in Hur Jin-ho's exquisite One Fine Spring Day (2001).

The Contact is not quite a landmark classic of Korean cinema it is sometimes taken to be. Still, as two hours of smart, high-quality entertainment, it deserves to claim its position among the cream of the crop from Korean films of the 1990s. (Kyu Hyun Kim)

Jeon Do Yeon is most definitely one of Korea's best actresses, if not THE best actress. She owned in Untold Scandal; I didn't recognize her at first in No Blood, No Tears. I loved her in I Wish I Had A Wife; her role in Happy End is bitterness and perfect melancholy. I'm definitely a fan. :D

thanks so much for starting this thread! she is hands down, one of THE best actors in korea. i love her in every role. she's so real as every single one of her characters, i don't know how she does it. i watched her in a YSMM episode once, and when she first started acting, almost everybody in her acting company, etc, spread rumors that she got her first starring role by sleeping around [with the top executives, etc of the company.]

boy, did she prove them wrong.

JDY is, to me, THE BEST actress Korea has. I know plenty of people compare her to Jeon Ji Yeon but if one compares ACTING PROWESS, there is NO exception. Yes Jeon Ji Yeon is sexy, glamorous, etc., Lee Hyori-esque, but I believe that's where the comparison ends. The starter of this thread is right when comparing Jeon Do Yeon to a chameleon. That's a perfect metaphor because she is absolutely believable in every role she takes on. I was looking forward to "Lovers in Prague" because I really like Kim Ju Hyuk and I LOOOOVE Jeon Do Hyun but when I heard about the plot of the drama series, I was disheartened. 'Gees,' I thought, 'please don't let this be another PRINCESS LULU type of drama.' And while I was skeptical that a rich woman could fall for a blue-collar cop and make it entertaining, I should have believed in the cast a little more because from the very first, it got me and Jeon Do Hyun AND Kim Ju Hyuk were spot on in their roles and infused enough realism to make it such a worthwhile series. I liked this series even more than "Lovers In Paris", although really I only watched "Paris" because of Lee Dong Gun. Anyway, I'm only expecting greater things from this fabuloso actress!

Hi..I am just curious..

Did Jeon Do Yeon also played in the old drama Happy Together (Lee Byung Hun, Song Seung Hun, Kim Ha Neul)..There's a girl that looked like her who played as LBH's sister's friend who work in the night club..but the role for her was really small..

I firstly watched JDY in Shoot A Star (I love this drama) then when I watched Happy Together, I was quite sure the actress that I mentioned was her..

Oops.. I watched Happy Together but can't remember the girl you mentioned. Could she be JDY? :sweatingbullets:

In Harmonium in My Memory, she was already 26-27 at the time but looked so 16! I had a hard time believing that she was actually older. :o
