One of the ahjummas in NK was SYJ’s best friend in SITR. They had a lot more interactions there too.

 

I am terrible.  I didn't realise it was the same actress until you pointed it out!  *headdesk* Still halfway through SITR.  

 

Does anyone know how SYJ and Lee Jung Hyun became friends?  Watched this random video commentary of the wedding guest fashions at LJH's wedding and I dare say I liked SYJ's clean look the best. I read that SYJ introduced LJH to her Cinderella group.  How did the Cinderella group get to know each other and form?  Is there one of the group that SYJ is closest with? I think it's awesome that SYJ went from not really having any close actress friends in her 20s to having such a tight knit group in her 30s.  Having close girlfriends is such a great thing in life.  It's always better when women are supporting each other even when working in the same industry.

 

Does SYJ's sister live in Seoul or she lives in the US?  I read that they used to live together before?  She's not in the entertainment business at all?

 

Then there was another random video commentary on all the furniture shown in SYJ's house lol.  Interior design clearly seems to be one of SYJ's passions.  She follows a few interior design accounts on IG.  Was it a surprise to fans that SYJ chose to open part of her house for filming for that Master variety show?  She seems like such a private person.  Does anyone know who is the artist of the paintings shown in her house?  And what a coincidence or not that SYJ and Seri both had the coffee table from the same designer.

I think she not a private person at all, but she known what and when she will show up and that's I like, so I hope another fans respect when she inactive in her SNS.

Yay! SYJ updated her IG yesterday. She uploaded several pics of gifts that she received from international fans and thanked them in Hangul and English :glee:

 

 ...very thoughtful and sweet of her... 

 

 

 

Her caption/message in Hangul:

 

안녕하세요~어려운 시기에 잘지내고계신가요? 여러분이 주시는 선물.꽃.편지.케잌들.항상 잘 받고있어요. 일일이 고맙다고 말을못해서 이렇게 글을써요.정말 여러분들이 주는사랑에 문득문득 뭉클할때가있어요.여러분이 선물을 고르기전에 편지를 쓰기전에 얼마나 예쁜마음으로 준비를하고 고민을할지 느껴져서 그런것같아요.
그동안 보내준 선물들 사진을 다찍어두지 못해서 미안해요.
집은항상 여러분이 보내주는 화분과꽃으로 향기가 가득하고 주위사람들과 자르기도 아까운 케잌들을 아주 자주 나눠먹어요~여러분들이 주시는 사랑이 너무 커서 그것을 기쁘게만 받아도 될지 모를정도에요.
항상 감사하고 잊지않을께요.
우리 계속 건강지키면서 다시 웃으며 깊은허그를 할수있는 날이 오길 바래요.건강하세요!

 

 

Her caption/message in English:

 

Hi~Are you guys doing well? We’re spending a hard time.
I always received presents,flowers,cakes and letters. Unfortunately I can’t thank each person. So I’m writing now.
When I think about your support and love, I feel very touched.
Before buying presents or writing letters
I can’t imagine,How much you are thinking of and considering..
I’m so sorry, I couldn’t photograph everything.
My house is always beautifully filled with the scent of flowers and plants that I’ve received from you. And I’m eating cakes are too pretty to cut with my family very often.
I’m always appreciate and won’t forget.
We should keep going our health and I hope someday we can meet again and share a warm hug.
Thank you  Be safe

Kang Ha Neul Confirmed to Appear in Upcoming Drama as the Father Role of the Character He First Received the Offer

Kang Ha Neul will appear as another character in the new drama Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart (literal title) instead of the male lead Ondal. 


According to a media outlet, Kang Ha Neul will appear in the drama Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart as Ondal’s father. He was originally offered to play the role of Ondal, but decided to take on another character as it became impossible to join the project as lead role due to his movie schedules. 


Onhyeop, played by Kang Ha Neul, is the father of the male lead Ondal. He is one of the main characters in the early parts of the drama, and will instill an image of “the nation’s General.”


Yesterday, news of the actor declining the offer to play Ondal was released, disappointing fans who have been waiting for Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul on the same project. 


Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart is a historical drama that tells the tragic love story between Princess Pyeonggang, who uses Ondal’s feelings to her advantage, and Ondal, who makes foolish sacrifices. Earlier, it was reported that Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul are in talks to star as Princess Pyeonggang and Ondal.

I am not surprised that Kang Ha Neul turned down the lead in Cut to the Heart. After his award show win, he said in an interview that he was going to take time off after finishing the film Pirates 2, currently in production.

I also read there are a few negative comments about SYJ taking the role because the female lead in the folk tale was a teenager. I personally thought she would pass on this specific project to concentrate on a new film project.

South Korean film productions are down 22 percent. COVID has hampered movie theaters and box office to the point that many projects will not be considered until late 2021. It would not surprise me if she took off a year (as she had done in the past) before her next film since she has so many CF commitments.

That was an excellent interview, thanks.  Shared my thoughts on it in HB/SYJ thread but cool if anyone wants to discuss it further here.  A lot of great SYJ content there!  I hope we'll get more such in depth interviews with SYJ.  Hopefully with the fan meeting too. No idea how those work. Is it just answering fan questions all the way through? Or they will play games? Or interviewer will ask some questions too?  Has SYJ done fan meetings in the past?  I think maybe not every actor does them or like goes on a tour of different Asian cities doing fan meetings?

 

Just finished watching The Last Princess.  I am glad SYJ got the chance to do a film portraying a historical figure (a very sadly tragic one at that) and tracing the trajectory of her life, which is not always an easy opportunity to come by for a female actor.  If more people wanted to learn more about this princess and that part of Korean history through the film, that's a good thing.  While I enjoyed the film, I think one issue with it is perhaps there isn't more known about the princess in real life?  So the personal characterisation couldn't go deeper, more complex, with more for SYJ to work on.  It was more a portrayal of a tragic figure being defined by her tragic circumstances.  I have really enjoyed some films about various periods of modern Korean history like A Taxi Driver, The Attorney etc, so if there's a strong script, I would love to see SYJ do a period film again.

 

Next up: hope to find The Pirates/My Wife Got Married somewhere to watch.

The Pirates should be up on Youtube (legally) as one of their free movies with ads. I watched it on Youtube and I was pleasantly surprised that there were no ads at all, only at the beginning before the film started.

 

Here you go, I found it easily:

 

 

MWGM is a tougher find. You can try Dramacool for the sanitized version. But for the actual movie R-rated version, your best bet is finding torrents.

Has she confirmed to take on the role of Princess pyeonggang yet? Yes agree with you that it won't be a surprise if she has no upcoming project before Cross :crymeme:

Thank you @slowpoked !

 

Youtube hasn't made the Pirates available in my country, bummer. If you don't mind, can you let me know a country where you can get access and I can try with a VPN.

 

i have tried looking for Pirates and MWGM or western torrent sites but no luck.  Yeah I definitely prefer to see the original R rated version lol.  Again, if you have any ideas about that please feel free to let me know here or via PM. Thank you.  I am especially curious about MWGM as SYJ got so many awards for it. 

 

Let's hope for some good new content from the fan meeting!

SuzyLeoo, to my knowledge SYJ has not confirmed for any project, including the Cross. There is so much fan interest in Ye JIn that she felt overwhelmed by the interest in her. Many producers are trying to take advantage of her popularity. She may have "received" many scripts but that does not mean she is "considering" any offers.

Her agency has confirmed that her next project would be The Cross and she's fine tuning all the details

Hopefully The Cross can really happen, so many projects delayed or even cancelled due to covid.  I hope SYJ gets her chance to do a HW film. I read somewhere she had the chance before but didn't choose to do it in the end? HW film or no, what matters most is the script, the character, the director etc.  The director of The Cross has done some good and interesting films in the past so hopefully this project with SYJ can happen. 

 

The actor who played Pyo Chi So in CLOY has a great singing voice!  After speaking so harshly in CLOY hehe. So he sang that song as it was SYJ's favourite? How lovely. So her favourite song is One Late Night in 1994?  Lovely melody but it sounds like quite a melancholy song.  Does anyone know where it came from, was it a big hit in 1994?  Interesting choice of a favourite song for a young SYJ.

 

It was cool to see SYJ online.  Hopefully there will be a transcript/subbed video sometime.  And those were some nice gifts for fans!
