Maybe I’m one of the few that wasn’t shocked by the news?When I’m curious about actors’ relationship, I tend not to look at their interaction on screen because it’s acting. I focus more on their real

Hi everyone. Came here after watching CLOY and being blown away by SYJ's amazing acting!  She was so great at both the comedy (loved all the scenes with the North Koreans, the ajummas and the boys, as

It feels good to hear nice things about her. Actor Lim Chul Soo said: (he's actually younger than SYJ)   I was really looking forward to senior Son Ye Jin, and when I finally met her, I got

Just watched White Night.  Whoa that was a dark movie.  Just as dark or maybe even darker than What Lies Beneath.  Purposely went into it not knowing anything about it.  Just seem to recall SYJ saying it was one of the more difficult characters she'd played, so I was intrigued.  Now I can understand why she said that.  A challenging character in a challenging script that didn't allow her to show a lot. 

White Night must have been a difficult role for Yejin. I had to watch it twice to figure out all the characters. And I still don't feel like I have a 100% understanding of the details. I heard a Korean say that the English subs sometimes do not capture the subtle nuances of a conversation. It certainly is a dark movie, although I thought Blood and Ties and The Truth Beneath were easier to follow in that genre.

I came across an old interview of SYJ's where I think she said WN was difficult for her because the character was so awful and it wasn't one where she could really act a lot with her facial expressions.  If anyone has more interviews from SYJ on WN I would be interested to read.  I like reading about SYJ's thoughts on a piece of work after I've watched it.

I'm sure they don't.  Even for CLOY.  It's hard for some nuance/cultural context not to be lost in translation. 

E.g. I watched that video where two Korean fans gave their reaction on Binjin's dating reveal and they commented on the wording of SYJ's IG post on that subject. As hard as they tried to explain the significance of her choice of word, it was still hard for me to completely grasp the meaning or the equivalent in my own languages. 

 

There's a wordy review of WN which compares it to the Japanese drama original, and apparently there was also a Japanese film version as well, if you want more details on the plot and characters.  If they are available with subtitles, I would be interested to check them out sometime. 

 

But I'm in the mood for something lighter these days.  CLOY is my comfort food when I want something light.  What other works of SYJ do you recommend if I want something light and funny?  What is her most comedic role? I thought she had great comedic chops as Seri in CLOY so I would love to see her do a full on comedic role sometime.

There’s always Personal Taste, which a lot of fans seem to love, but I personally detest it. 
 

It’s plain bad writing, and the homophobic gay storyline obviously didn’t age well from 2010. 
 

I can appreciate a Pygmalion/My Fair Lady stories (modern ones like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, The Devil Wears Prada, etc. come to mind, and obviously they each have their own problems but I think those movies have still held up well). But Personal Taste just had no nuance to it. And Episode 1 is already a huge faceplant for me - I had a hard time believing a woman would NOT know that not only his long-time boyfriend is cheating on her, but was actually already making plans to marry her best friend and roommate!!! So ridiculous!

 

But I still plowed through the end because I like SYJ. I like her enough that I will watch her in bad projects. LOL!

 

There’s also The Art of Seduction, which is so-so. She fares much better in MWGM, although it’s not a straight-up funny, haha role, if that’s what you’re looking for.

 

CLOY is her best comedic performance to date, and that says something considering there are really dark elements to the series.

I agree that Art of Seduction and MWGM probably have the most light-hearted moments. I disliked Personal Taste, although that in itself is personal taste. Ha! Mostly I disliked that Yejin's character started off dumb and then kept getting dumber as the drama progressed. Everyone treats her like garbage--and then she turns around and trusts them???

 

CLOY is well-written, so the funny parts--of which there are many--are truly funny. But it also has its share of violence, crime and heartache.

Son Ye-jin picked the figure of the goddess of spring.

Fashion brand BAU by Bride And You will release the 2021 spring season pictorial with brand Muse Son Ye-jin.

This pictorial is full of excitement to prepare to go out for "My Special Day" in line with the theme of the advertising campaign "Get Ready with Me", and actress Son Ye-jin's extreme elegance has become more beautiful as it matches the product.


Son Ye-jin showed a variety of elegant collection costumes, including a dress with a sweet pastel color that is full of spring vibes and a set-up suit with luxurious materials and tayloring.


The spring collection of B.A.U by Bride & U with Son Ye-jin can be seen at the brand's official online mall and W concept.

The website will be launched on March 15 and every week 20 actors will be release online:

The KOREAN ACTORS 200 website, which will be accessible from March 15, aims to introduce the 200 actors that best represent the present and future of Korean cinema to people in the film industry all over the world. The selection process considered performers who starred in some of the biggest successes of the last decade, actors who earned accolades from film festivals in Korea or abroad, as well as the biggest contributors to indie film or those who participated in international projects. The actors who make up the final list include stars who are already active on the world stage as well as actors who have built a solid reputation in the Korean film industry but have yet to enjoy wider recognition.

 

Among the actors on the list are YOUN Yuh-jung and HAN Ye-ri, who recently came under the international spotlight with Minari; actors who have established themselves as Asian stars like KIM Soo-hyunSO Ji-subSON Ye-jinSONG Joong-kiLIM Yoon-a, and HYUN Bin; actors who are widely known for their acting credentials like KIM Seo-hyungKWAK Do-wonMOON So-ri, and CHO Jin-woong; and young actors who will shape the future of Korean cinema-like KIM Da-miRYU Jun-yeolE som, and JUNG Hae-in,The 200 actors will be released every week starting March 15 (Monday) on a special online web page for 20 actors will be released every week. The complete list will be revealed on March 15 through a dedicated website. This website will contain detailed bios for each actor accompanied by portrait photographs and showreels.

 

The photographs were taken by two prominent Korean photographers, KIM Jung-man and AHN Sung-jin. KIM is a Korean photographer with an international career spanning four decades and known for many photography projects, and who won the Young Photographer Award from the Rencontres d’Arles photography festival in France in 1977. AHN is an eminent Korean celebrity photographer who has been working with a large number of stars for the past 30 years after starting in advertisement photography in 1992. A catalogue featuring all these carefully composed pictures is scheduled to be published soon under the title THE ACTOR IS PRESENT and will be distributed to representatives of film companies and organizations around the world.

 

More details on this campaign, which has been initiated to increase the global awareness of Korean actors and to expand their opportunities overseas, can be found on the dedicated website accessible through KOFIC website (www.kobiz.or.kr) from March 15th.

Her instagram likes from 2 weeks ago are making headlines now. She liked a bunch of fan memes of HB too in those likes which is why they are making headlines.

Offtopic: just started World of the Married and I can't believe the protagonist is still speaking to any of the people in her social circle after finding out what she did about them! But then I guess we would not have a drama if she cut them off in episode 1 lol.  Still, I can only take so much incredibility!  And goodness, the actor who played Manbok in CLOY goes topless haha. But he's definitely a good actor.

Haven't been able to find TAOS but I just finished watching Spellbound.  Hmm it actually wasn't as all out comedic as I expected, kind of melancholic in parts actually and then turned melo as well.  Even though I thought White Night didn't work well on a number of levels, I thought it was overall more interesting than Spellbound which was kind of meh for me. 

 

MWGM, well, SYJ managed to make her character not entirely annoying for me, which I consider a real feat! ;)

Both SYJ and HB and the supporting cast made me laugh more than I expected, in unexpected moments, which was great.  Actors often say comedy is harder than drama, if that's the case, I thought SYJ did very well with the comedy in CLOY.  I'd be interested to know what comedic films she herself enjoys and what comedy she watched as prep for Seri.  Is she a black humour, dry comedy kind of person, or laughs more at the absurd and farcical or all out physical comedy?

Ha. 

 

I am curious about Alone in Love as some like it, some don't, and I think SYJ referenced it as a turning point in her career of sorts.  But it'll probably be a while before I get to work through her TV dramas.

It was the blend of genres which made it all the more interesting.  The switch in tone isn't always easy to do and they pulled it off well for the most part. 

 

What do you guys think of the SYJ's photo chosen for The Actor is Present project?  If you use one word to describe her expression in the photo, it would be....?  I would be thrilled (see what I did there) if they could correct the typo though!

At this point, is this still wishful thinking or repeating the media rumors?

 

Son Yejin’s next film is Cross, her first Hollywood film. It is an SF film directed by Andrew Niccol and tells the story of people on the border between poor and rich countries in the background of a virtual multi-ethnic future divided country. Son Yejin will keep in step with Sam Washington in the film. It is clear that she will defend her throne in the next 10 years. And her realm keeps expanding.

 

From SYJ's profile from The Faces of Today's Korean Cinema: Korean Actors 200 Campaign based on their box office power, awards earned, level of contribution to independent cinema, and their participation in int'l projects over the last decade.

Whoever's in charge of the materials for this website as well as MSteam really have to learn to use spell check. ;) Another spelling error again just looks really sloppy. 

 

I hope The Cross happens of course, with Sam Worthington

Although the story of The Cross looks interesting, similar to CLOY, the chances of this film being made are low. It has had several false starts with other actors over the years. Yejiin should work on other projects and just do The Cross if it becomes reality.
