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

SYJ is legendary for her acting skills and  beauty...she has so many awards for her acting it's crazy. very well deserved too. HB is a man and most drama viewers are female so he's more popular I

She looks so different in the Valentino photoshoot! If I'm not too familiar with her and only casually watch her, I wouldn't know it's SYJ.

I love that a brand finally had SYJ portray a bolder, fiercer image.  SYJ's image in advertising usually tends towards the soft and feminine (is that the case for most female celebs? I have no idea as I don't follow others), and that's fine and safe, which is perhaps what most brands want, but it's so much more interesting to see her presented as something bolder and different.

 

I remember SYJ once said she didn't think she could portray a femme fatale well (is it cause of Open City? have not watched that yet), but I would love to see her give it another try sometime with a good script and a good director, especially as I love noir.

I think as you grow older and in the business for too long, eventually you just learn to brush off negative comments. Yes, it hurts in the beginning, but it's part of the business, and you eventually learn that some people are just inherently mean - you just can't please everybody. SYJ is at that point in her career and personal life that she can ignore those negative comments and still be generally well liked by most everyone in the industry. She's stable and steady. Of course there will be a difference in how an SYJ would handle such situation vs. say, a new idol just getting her first TV drama. The latter will still be sensitive. I think even SYJ would say that she was once at that point in her life as well.

Absolutely.  I think a lot of us can identify with similar feelings as we grow up and hopefully mature and blossom.  As SYJ herself said, she picks 30s SYJ over 20s SYJ because she realised she was able to be less sensitive/more confident in her 30s compared to when she was younger and working hard to establish herself as an actor in a tough industry.  I'm glad she was able to feel freer in her 30s.  You can't live your life on other people's terms or focused on what others think of you.  I love what she said in the Glass interview about valuing yourself, finding something you love and working hard towards it.  Wise words. 

 

From what I read from her, SYJ also strikes me as a person with good EQ.  I was impressed by her professionalism and maturity even around the age of 20 in one of her oldest interviews I've watched of hers that filmed her on a work day.  And I really enjoyed a recent translation by a fan on twitter of an article from some years ago, written by SYJ's longtime pilates instructor who felt compelled to set the record straight about SYJ and her warm heart, after reading some hurtful untrue stuff written about her which SYJ just laughed off but bothered the instructor.  Could definitely relate to what the instructor wrote.  Some good insights into SYJ's character.  So true what she said about the difference between those who truly show commitment and focus and those who don't, and how SYJ showed it every day for years.  Lots of respect for her work ethic.  The stories she shared about SYJ's kindness and thoughtfulness for her teachers were sweet, and that she never asked for any special treatment or discount.  SYJ's pilates gym is featured in her Master of the House episode for those interested.  I think she's a loyal person who really values good relationships built up over time considering how long she's stayed with her agency, gym, hair and makeup people etc.

Is it just me or the background music is one of the songs from SITR?

Haha I still haven't finished SITR. Think I have to go back and watch it from the beginning again. That soundtrack was beginning to get on my nerves, the same song played way too much!

Some quotes from her interview. Those who had paid for subscription. Got to see the interview online already through the app. There might have been a few stuff lost in translations. So those waiting for their Glass China issues are going to see if there were any differences. Some stuff from interview seemed like it could be old. There was mention of wanting to work HB again - I think it was more related to TN time and before they got to work again in CLOY

 

She also said nothing much changed from her daily life routine except she can't travel abroad. 

 

She also can't share much about Cross - I think also due to the covid situation and she has been in similar situations with other past projects (Nakrang Club, Agent Zero and My Way) - projects she didn't do in the end due to various different reasons. The Last Princess was delayed too back then but it all worked out since SYJ/msteam also invested and she worked with dir.  Hur Jin-Ho again. Plus not to mention she won many awards for The Last Princess. Everything lately in Korea is announced closer to filming - finalizing cast etc. //due to covid situation - filming locations are harder to confirm. Others have mentioned this problem-struggle while filming their recent projects and it causes delays while they are filming. 

 

Sam Worthington is also done his play in Australia in less than  2 weeks. Not sure what he is planning on doing after his play is done but he also had another film that was suppose to be shot in Philippines last year - not sure if it actually ended up filming last year in the summer.

If you want to see SYJ as a bad girl, then this is that movie. She smokes a lot in this movie, a total villain, etc. But other than that, the movie is not good. It's also one of my least favorite acting performances from her. I don't know if her speaking manner here was a conscious choice, but it was one of the parts of the movie that annoyed me.

Where did you stop? Because SITR, to me, is like two separate dramas. The first half was glorious and excellent, while the second half is an abomination altogether. So if you finished the first half, you probably already got the best part of the series anyway. You may want to just finish it for curiosity's purposes to see how it ends. But unlike CLOY, it doesn't get better as it reached the finish line - it actually got worse. 

 

And yes, I agree with you the soundtrack got too repetitive. And I'm not really sure how SBYM really fits the theme of the drama. I'm not one to hinge if a drama is good due to the music, but SITR is one example where better choices on the soundtrack would have helped elevate it (of course, the main aspect would have been the writing as well). But juxtapose the soundtrack with CLOY, and it's just no contest. And I didn't even understand a single song in CLOY, but it was much more impactful than the English songs I know and understand in SITR.

I am happy to see the Cinderella 7 relationship, :heart:
I saw Lee Jung Hyun and Oh Yoon Ah skill in Fun Restaurant, so I excited to hear when they were cooking together.
I only wish to see a video of them together while cooking. May I dream?  :joy:

But unlike CLOY, it doesn't get better as it reached the finish line - it actually got worse.

I stopped about halfway.  Not because I disliked it or anything, I just went through a busy period and haven't picked it up again yet.  CLOY and SITR are two very different kind of dramas of course, and I actually do like more realistic life dramas as well, but I didn't feel as compelled to go straight to the next episode with SITR as I did with CLOY.  Even though I relate on some levels to Jinah in SITR, Seri is more my speed.  That said, I haven't watched Jinah's journey to the end and presumably she'll have her journey of growth.  I will finish SITR for sure as I do like SYJ in this role and I like seeing her in a substantial role, and the drama holds my interest for the most part, though I am finding that kdrama can drag a bit sometimes due to the longer episodes.  I did find CLOY pacing to be good, but that may be an exception. 

 

I will say I found the first half of CLOY to be somewhat stronger than the second, that is I thought the part set in NK was stronger.  Maybe cause there was more a balance of the comedy and the melo, and then as it progressed it turned into mostly melo.

 

I do really want to see SYJ in a good comedy after seeing her comedic chops as Seri.  And I think a good comedy or a lighter project would be a good work to deliver in these challenging times for the world.  Not that I don't want to see her in a movie about a Very Serious Subject loved by critics either lol.  To be in something as acclaimed as Minari.  A smart, fearless, uninhibited female comedy with her buddy Gong Hyo Jin could be fun.

Did they not have enough $$ to pay for more songs on SITR lol?  Or the director just really wanted to hammer it in?  I really enjoyed the soundtrack on CLOY too.  It's endlessly replayable like CLOY.

 

Cool that CLOY is going to be made into a musical.  But no, I don't think SYJ should be in it hehe. 

 

Nice to see SYJ out and about enjoying the outdoors.  Hopefully between the cap and mask, she can enjoy some privacy and freedom.

Crocodile Ladies and Jenny House partnering up for this event :)

 

Crocodile Ladies, Son Ye-jin's model, Jenny House.
"Crocodile Ladies" of the fashion group Hyungji (CEO Choi Byung-oh) will form a partnership with "Jenny House Cosmetics" to hold a "Completion of Fashion is Hair" and spring style proposal exhibition. The partnership marketing was carried out against the background of the common ground that the two brands' exclusive models are Son Ye-jin. Actress Son Ye-jin has always been the talk of the town not only for her acting skills, but also for her clothes, hairstyles, and jewelry bags.

The two brands that use Son Ye-jin as a model will work together to hold a joint event, further amplifying the "Son Ye-jin effect." In addition, the intention is to create synergy by securing new customers for each other as well as promoting brands through partnerships between fashion and beauty industries, which have relatively less heterogeneity between industries.

Cho Do-yeon, director of sales at Crocodile Ladies, said, "Actress Son Ye-jin is a representative Hallyu star with high fandom not only in Korea but also abroad, which has a good fashion sense and affects sales as a clothing brand model ."

Meanwhile, Crocodile Ladies chose actress Son Ye-jin as the exclusive model for Crocodile Lady in February, the heroine of the drama 'Crash Landing On You' Wannabe star Son Ye-jin is introducing the new concept of women's casual wear.

Watched some of Uhm Ji Won's yt videos from her channel.  The one with her and Gong Hyo Jin and friend doing an impromptu shopping trip at the market was fun and funny.  Then I saw that their mutual friend Oh Yoon Ah also has her own yt channel.  They all seem like really down to earth ladies with a good sense of humour so I can see why SYJ is good friends with them.  And they all seem to love plates and flowers lol.  It would be fun to see SYJ featured in her friends' videos some time, but no pressure, I understand it's not for everybody.  Not every actor wants to share their private life on the internet when they already have to share so much else with the public.

@Seriya yea her friends' vlogs are fun! especially the another vlog UJW was a part of when she was learning English in NY. You saw her life as a normal person while being in New York with normal friends. It's fun :) It made me wish I know them in real life. They are really fun people to be around :) OYA opened up more on Fun Straurent too. You see more of her daily life with her son Min and she also includes more of this on her vlog :) SYJ really has a great group of very close friends in her life :)

The list is really good. A Moment To Remember is #83

 

83. A Moment to Remember (2004) 

John H. Lee (Lee Jae-han)

 

moment%20to%20remember-1200-1200-675-675

 

Based on the 2001 Japanese television drama Pure Soul, this is a tear-jerking romance and melodrama that is also a superb technical feat of direction and fine onscreen performances. Fashion designer Su-jin and construction site foreman Chul-soo have a chance encounter leading to a relationship and eventually marriage. When Su-jin receives an early-onset Alzheimer's disease diagnosis, the pair must face this fate together. 


It is a film which shows the complexities of love and the challenges that many relationships face. What seems like another rom-com to throw on the pile eventually turns into some more meaningful and ultimately heart-breaking.

Son Ye Jin Offered to Take the Lead in ‘Encounter’ Writer’s New Romance Series with Jeon Mi Do

Son Ye Jin may be returning to the small screen with Thirty-Nine (literal title).

 

According to media outlets, Son Ye Jin was offered to take the lead in the upcoming JTBC series Thirty-Nine.

 

Thirty-Nine is a real-life human romance about the love and life of three 39-years-old friends. It is to be produced as a 12-part series by Lotte Cultureworks. Encounter screenwriter Yoo Young Ah pens the script, while Run On co-director Kim Sang Ho helms the production.

 

The role that Son Ye Jin was offered to play is 39-years-old Cha Mi Jo. She was born with a silver spoon in her mouth and now owns her own dermatology clinic in Gangnam. If she joins the project, she will be working with Hospital Playlist actress Jeon Mi Do.

 

Earlier, Son Ye Jin had been preparing for her Hollywood film Cross. But when the production was indefinitely postponed due to coronavirus, the actress started reviewing Korean projects. If she stars in Thirty-Nine, it will be her comeback in about a year since Crash Landing On You.

 

In response, MSTeam Entertainment shared, “Son Ye Jin was offered the lead role and is positively reviewing it.”

Thirty-Nine will begin filming in the latter half of this year.

On April 15, Son Ye Jin’s  agency MSTeam Entertainment confirmed the actress received a casting offer, but nothing has been decided as of yet. 'Thirty-Nine' tells the story about 2 friends who are almost turning 40 years old.  It's described as a realistic, slice-of-life drama that will follow the friends as they experience life and romance. If cast, Son Ye Jin will play Cha Mi Jo, who's from a wealthy household and is now the director of a skincare clinic in Gangnam.

 

This project would be an interesting premise for SYJ. When she took the role in SITR, she wanted to realistically play a woman in her mid-30s facing cultural and family pressures on her career and marriage. She kept true to her belief in her character's immaturity in decision making in the end which left some viewers disappointed in the second half of the series.

 

Thirty-Nine would explore another cultural milestone of women turning 40. Her character could have a more mature approach to social issues facing Korean women when they reach 40 (such as ageism and sexism). I would look forward to her take on this subject matter.

Jeon Mi Do is also filming Hospital Playlist Season 2 - drama airs June 17. So if Jeon Mi Do is considering the drama, it most likely is filming after HP is done filming.

 

Sounds like a good drama but only Son Ye Jin knows :) She wanted to work with a more female centric cast too!
