Omo, our Yejin’s so humble. In some part of this interview she even said : “ I have an ordinary face as an actress. I’m not pretty or ugly , but I spent my entire time of twenties to became a best actor”.

Like where she has an ordinary face? Yejin my angel your face isn’t ordinary at all .... You’re the MOST TALENTED and the PRETTIEST  actress that I had ever saw ,and your bubbly and down to earth personality makes u shining even more :wub:.

I LOVE that you’re always reinventing yourself, always challenging yourself, never playing twice a same kind of character and always improving your acting’s skills :D.

This interview it's around the time of the released of her movie “Spellbound “ check out guys:

Son Ye-jin: 'I Do Not Like Similar Appearance'


images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQEOvJhpOYtALMZkMhXa9E

Actress Son Ye-jin, who will play the female protagonist named Kang Ye Ri in the movie "Spellbound", said, "I would like to act after abandoning myself. I am more attracted to new genre, new character and new story. I think that when I can enjoy, the audience can enjoy. I hate my similar facial expressions. I want to break the boundary of my acting"

Son Ye-jin has appeared in the movie at least once a year since she appeared in the movie "Lover's Concerto" in 2002 when she was in her early twenties. She usually appears in melodrama and romantic comedy movies such as "April Snow" (2005, directed by Heo Jin-ho) and "Crazy First Love" (2003). "Spellbound" (directed by Hwang In-ho) that will be released on December 1 is not so much different from her previous works, but it has difference of adding an atmosphere of horror in the movie.

On November 24 one week before the movie's release, Son Ye-jin came to a café located in Samcheongdong to give an interview. She said, "I seem to have a desire to present different appearances to the audience. And I happened to see 'Spellbound' which was very attractive thanks to its mixed genres of romantic comedy and horror. But I felt worried about the fact the rookie director will produce this movie. I have worked with many other rookie directors up to now, but I thought that experienced directors would be better for finding something new appearance from me. But I could not give up the attractive storyline only because of the fact that the director was not yet proved, so I gathered my heart". The movie is about a love story between Yeo Ri (Son Ye-jin), who can see ghost, and a timid magician Jo Goo (Lee Min-ki). The story is very unique as it mixed all different stories of love, friendship among women, and revenge. Son Ye-jin successfully played a woman who solves problems of ghosts in the movie.

Spoiler

The character has a huge gap in her emotion as she has to feel gloomy while living together with the ghosts and feel love from her romance. Sohn said, "I had difficulty of controlling my emotion because I was confused how far I have to be sad, awkward, lovely, and surprised. I did not know appropriate level of emotion. In addition, I first filmed the scene in which I had to feel feared after seeing ghost in the movie, and it was also very difficult. But I could learn new things such as how to look at camera, how to be suddenly immersed, and how to control my breath". Like the character Yeo Ri whose mood dramatically goes up and down, actresses sometimes feel the same way. Son Ye-jin has always been portrayed as a pure and innocent woman and a dignified woman in the works, but she said, "I often feel sad in my ordinary life. I sometimes become a positive person, but I keep sadness in my mind. I have many kinds of thoughts in my head and those thoughts drive me feel sad. I would have felt comfortable if I were a positive person, but I am afraid I am not (laugh)".

Spoiler

Son Ye-jin has played the protagonist for nine years since her appearance in "Lover's Concerto". She said, "I have an ordinary face as an actress. I am not pretty nor ugly, but I spent my entire time of twenties to become a best actor". She reportedly wanted to develop herself and present mature acting. Even though her desire to become a best actor is still the same, she feels that she cannot play the protagonist forever as she grows older. She Said, "In my twenties, I liked my job very much, but I also felt difficulties because I had to be judged by other people. How long will I have to keep this job? Do I have to retire in the middle of thirties? I have thought like these before". But she recently changed her mind while she was filming her recent movie entitled "Tower" (2012). She began to have a desire to present mature acting on which all the wisdom of lives reflected.

She said, "From some moment, I like the acting of experienced senior actors. When I filmed "Tower", there was a scene in which actor Song Jae Ho stood without action, but his appearance standing still looked like his acting. His entire life seems to be acting and seems to be an entire work by itself. His wrinkles and appearance all looked as a perfect acting for me, and I want to present that kind of excellent acting like him". Son Ye-jinemphasized again that she wanted to break down all the limit of herself that she has come to have while acting for a long time. She said, "Actors are different from ordinary office workers because actors can become specialists when they manage themselves very well. I am not afraid of growing older. If I fear of aging, I might need to stop acting pretty soon because the youth will disappear some day. I might not be able to play the protagonist in a near future. But I do now think that those are not all about acting. I want to present acting like what the actor Song Jae-ho and Kim Hye-sook present. I have to manage myself and try to present acting that fits suitable to my age". Asked about her marriage plan, she answered, "I do not want to wed very late. Due to my desire about acting, it might be difficult to marry right now, but I will marry when I am prepared to be a good mother and good wife". Asked about what kind of movie she wants to pursue, she answered, "I have thought that an actor will have only one perfect work during his or her entire life, and I still think the same way. I want to present a story about love and friendship like the movie 'Thelma & Louise' and a story of romance and sexy dance like the movie 'Dirty Dancing'. But I ultimately want to present desperate acting that I have to abandon myself like the actress Natalie Portman in her movie 'Black Swan' and the actress Isabelle Huppert in her movie 'Pianist'".

I just rewatched the trailer of Be With You and found this clip from Youtube. YJ looks so mature here, like i can totally picture her playing as a mom on her next drama or movie maybe in two or three years time. She is just amazing, in cloy she looks so sassy and funny, but here she looks completely mature.

Loved this CF when I saw it years ago and since we do not have new SYJ content and I don't think we will be hearing anything from her anytime soon, here is a throwback CF of 1/2 of "The Classic" couple

Not sure if this video of LBH and SYJ presenting awards together has been shared before. How I wish they will co star in a movie or drama together. It will be interesting to see what kind of dynamics or chemistry they will have. I recalled reading in Weibo that there were LBH’s fans who also like to see this pair be co stars in a movie or drama during the hype of Mr Sunshine days. What do you think of this potential pairing?


But of course reel pairing only.......:D........

 

For real couple, I am only rooting for Hyun Bin as a Binjin shipper ...:wub:

She almost worked with both of them before:

  • With Seol Kyung-gu: ‘“Agent Zero’’ (announced in 2006; would be his 1st TV Drama appearance). After preparing for quite some time, it ended up not being made (common in tv/film industry).
  • With Lee Byung-hun: she was offered the female lead role in KBS drama ’IRIS’ (2009; his return to the small screen since ‘All In’ in 2003); we discussed this in the drama thread back then, I can’t remember the details now - I think her schedule didn’t work out.  They won and presented many awards together over the years.

In addition, she was cast in other projects with Jang Dong-gun (Kang Je-gyu’s My Way), Lee Jung-Jae (Hur Jin-ho’s ‘The Last Princess’), Ha Jung-woo, etc. All of them are A-listers/superstars in Chungmuro.  Maybe it’ll happen sometimes in the future. :)

She really does look good with her co-stars.

Spoiler

She & Chen Bolin looked so great together on the red carpet of Busan International Film Festival in 2015. 

 

https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/celebrity/2015-10/21/content_22240167.htm

 


She wore the exact same dress in a different color to the 2016 blue dragon film awards. She looked a lot skinnier here compared to BIFF 2015.

 

Chen Bolin captured many fans’ hearts with Taiwanese drama ‘In Time with You’ in 2011.

I think I have YJ Unnie’s withdrawal symptom. I have been watching her previous works and also Master in the House eps 46 and 47. 
 

She is soooo real and humble. Definitely one of the korean a-list actresses that I respect.

Governments all across the world are encouraging people to stay at home but for many people, it can be exhausting to cope with the idea of 'social distancing'. 'Crash Landing on You' star Son Ye-jin has shared an amazing idea for people to keep their mind occupied and also feel more connected with nature.

She shared a picture of a beautiful new plant on her Instagram and the post went viral within a matter of hours. The post was flooded with comments of fans worried about her Hyun Bin's health due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Son Ye-jin's show Crash Landing on You is a wildly popular show and aired its final episode on February 16, setting a new record for the highest viewership ratings in tvN history. She isn't very active on social media and shared a post after a gap of more than a month, which made fans anxious about her health and well-being.

I know Ye Jin must be enjoying her vacation time from work at the moment. But I can’t help but hope that her new film would be a heavy melo or noir thriller with her sunbae-nim Song Kang Ho. I would also like to see her collaborate with Lee Byung Hun in an action film where in she would play a villain or an assassin. In terms of reunion, I’d like to see her in a melo with Cho Seung Woo. As much as I want to see her in hour-long multiple episodes, I hope she’ll lay off from TV dramas for now as it takes up too much time and energy. Chungmuro must be missing her so badly as she didn’t release any movie in 2019.

I recently watched this interview with YJ when she went to BIFF in 2016. She mentioned when would there be an all-female cast film. This is something that struck out to me, her desire to work with other actresses who are around her age or her caliber. SHK also said in an interview in 2017 that she would like to get to know and work with SYJ and JJH because in her 20s, she was conditioned (by the industry and people around her) to see them as competitors. 

 

I don't know how to put this but I am so happy to hear them say this. This also reflects how male-dominated the industry is - where all-male cast is seen as normal and friendly while actresses are still naturally seen as competitors, while they should really band together! 

 

I used to be a HUGE fan of SHK in the 2000s when I was a teenager. Sadly, I was guilty of comparing the women as well. But now that I'm older, I have a newfound appreciation and respect for all female artists. I love SYJ a bit more now. I would love to see an all-female cast in a high budget, well-written film. I want to see camaraderie among actresses. But deep down I know this may not happen any time soon because the industry is just so male-dominated. All the "acclaimed" films (those that get nominated at awards shows like Blue Dragon and Baeksang) are mostly male-centered. But I'll keep praying! 

 

What do you guys think?

I’ve seen this interview too. It would be great to see them in a movie like Ocean 8 or Kill Bill. When I watched the Korean movie The Villainess, I thought how awesome would that be if YJ would do this kind of movies as well, brutal but action-packed. I personally never seen Thelma and Louise, the movie YJ kept on mentioning but I definitely see why she’d want a movie like this. And I agree, I’d love to see her in a movie like it too.
 

The actresses the YJ mentioned in this video + JJH are top-notch with accolades in Chungrumo like her. Unfortunately, SHK still hasn’t break in Chungmuro despite several attempts in the past. I can see how buzz-worthy it would be if the 3 of them would be in a big movie. However, aside from it being a male-centric industry, another obstacle they have to overcome is who would have the main role. We’ve seen women partnership in Thieves, and that worked well because they’re from different generations. But it’s different when you’re in a competition in your generation, and I guess the producers and the actresses themselves know this very well too. Same goes with male actors. With the exception of the few, you’ll rarely see competitors of same generation in one movie. But obviously the competition changes as they get old.
