Biography

Moon Chae Won was born on November 13th, 1986 in Daegu. Her family moved to Seoul when she was in the 6th grade. With an interest and love for art since childhood, Moon Chae Won went on to pursue a degree in Western Painting at Chugye, University for the Arts. After some exposure to acting - obtaining successful auditions for the SBS drama „Mackerel Run“ (2007; her debut role) and the film „My School's E.T.“ (2008) - she discovered her talent and passion for acting.

After one year of attendance at Chugye Univeristy, Moon Chae Won left her studies to pursue a career as an actress. Her love for art continues to inspire her, helping her to achieve meaning in her acting work and appreciate film-making as a valuable form of art.

Moon Chae Won joined her current entertainment agency, MS Team (formerly named Barunson Entertainment), in 2010.

In 2012 she was appointed as Honorary Prosecutor for South Korean prosecutors.

In the same year Moon Chae Won took the female leading role in the KBS drama „Nice Guy“ alongside with Song Joong Ki. Her successful career continued with the KBS drama „Good Doctor“ in 2013 – there she took the female leading role again next to Joo Won.

In 2014 she took the leading role in the short film „Awaiting“ and in 2015 she returned to the big screen starring next to Lee Seung Gi in „Today's Love“. Late 2015 Moon Chae Won was confirmed as the female lead in the drama "Goodbye Mr. Black" which will mark her return to the small screen in March 2016. In early 2016 the movie "Mood of the Day" premiered with Moon Chae Won as the lead.

In October 2016 Moon Chae Won signed a new contract with her new agency Namoo Actors, home of her best friend Moon Geun Young and other actors like Ji Sung. Following the switch to Namoo Actors she was cast as one of the leads of the Korean remake of the US tv series "Criminal Minds" which premiered on July 26th, 2017. In the same year she was cast alongside of Ji Sung, Cho Seung Woo and Kim Sung Kyun in the movie "Propitious Side for Grave" which is set to premier in movie theatres in 2018.

Actress Moon Chae Won of “The Painter of the Wind” and the leading actor of KBS “Boys Before Flowers”, Lee Min Ho, will be the endorsers for Levis.

According to the news, Moon Chae Won has signed an endorser agreement with Levis, and will be filming a CF with Lee Min Ho, who is already the male endorser for Levi’s Jeans. A staff from the commercial company also revealed that Moon Chae Won and Lee Min Ho will be playing as a couple in a pure and lively commercial film.

During a recent interview with Moon Chae Won, she said: “Thanks everyone for the support this past one year. I will be playing a role in a TV drama this coming May. I hope everyone can continue to support me.”

Moon Chae Won has left a deep impression among viewers with her role in SBS “The Painter of the Wind” as a famous courtesan Jeong Hyang, which eventually won her a “Best Couple” award with Moon Geun Young in 2008 SBS Drama Awards. And Lee Min Ho is one of the most popular actor currently with the viewership of “Boys Before Flowers” shooting through the roof. They had both acted in SBS “Mackerel Run” back in 2007.

Here is an old interview. Can you see the movie file?

Thank you lisante!! You're ressourceful as usual ;) Yes, I can see it but don't understand a word...lol What did she say?

My favourite pictures of MCW at the 2008 Golden Disk Awards:

I absolutely loved her yellow strapless mini dress.

She's gorgeous but somehow I have the impression that she looks a bit lost/stift...She needs YB by her side to feel confident...lol

She is talking about being a cosmetic model, about her first audition and her character of Mackerel Run.

Here is another CF. The main model is Kim Min-jeong but...

MCW covers her face at her own fan meeting after they yelled out YB's lines (eg the stuff about beautiful flowers) at her. It took place around Nov/Dec 2008.

I think the hoodie she wore was a birthday present from her fans.

Levis shoot with LMH (Eng subbed)

She doesn't appear a lot.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMufkh9eZeM

MCW's 2/16/09 Note (originally from La Vie En Rose cafe)

She posted at 2:19AM.

As I understood from Chinese translation -->

(She quoted)

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” - Lao Tzu

MCW asked about everyone’s health. She is reading Paradise Kiss, a manga present from her fans. Wondered what it’d be like to remake this manga into a TV drama. She thanks everyone for their support, incl those in US. It was windy and drizzling during the Levis shoot at Paju. The jeans were lovely but it was really cold in short sleeves. Will soon begin filming Life is Beautiful (working title) with POTW co-star BSB, though they never had a single scene together in POTW. She wished good health to everyone, and prayed tomorrow will be happier than today.

-------------------------------------

*Coff* Somehow I can't imagine Lao Tzu saying something quite like that....!

Hi there! I was wondering if there'd be anybody interested in help subbing Mackerel Run? We are currently recruiting translators for that drama.

I've seen MCW in PotW, and I was just amazed! <3

Sounds like she is playing an evil step-sister.

Why most Korean drama 2nd female leads are always evil??? Though it could be MCW's first evil role, yes?

BTW, the storyline sounds kind of cheesy...hope the script is good.

I have my doubts about the storyline too. But I'll give it a chance for the sake of MCW and BSB.

It's only her 3rd TV drama. Doesn't matter whether it's evil so long as she performs well. She is still inexperienced so it's a good thing to try different roles. She seems like an introvert. Even her cafe notes are thoughtful and restrained. Despite her newbie status, she always manages to look composed which I find impressive. (Shades of JH there....)

Thread for upcoming drama Life is Beautiful

http://www.soompi.com/forums/index.php?sho...275954&st=0

first of all, thank you for this thread! like most of you. totally fell in love with her in POTW. so pretty. and although she still needs more experience, i see great potential in her :)

i love that she models for Levis alongside Minho. they look good together too.

and yey for her new drama. at this point, she has to explore as many different roles as possible. im actually glad she chose to portray an evil step sister this time. looking forward to see her act! really love this gorgeous gal!

PS. sweet of her that she actually uses stuff that her fans give her :)
