Joo Won: The good actor

“I’m not afraid of taking on challenges. Not many actors my age can stand on stage and act like I do. I have the confidence to stay in my acting career for a long time because I have done all the titles other actors avoided,” said the 28-year-old during a group interview  officer in 2012’s Bridal Mask, as among the challenges he had taken that had in turn propelled him.

Sometimes I wonder who writes these things. Do they not know how arrogant this sounds to speakers of English? Such reports can give rise to the misunderstanding that an actor lacks humility, which in Joo Won's case would be so far from the truth! And his role in Good Doctor was not that of someone with Asperger's. Get the facts right if you want to be an entertainment writer, please. Tsk. 

Glad someone talked about this because I was spontaneously said 'really?'. But tbh I still hesitate to believe he did because this is totally opposite with what I saw and read before. For eg. when the writer? (not sure) complimented his portrayal as Sam was the best he ever saw but Joowon commented that the writer didn't really mean what he said.

I just wanted to add that the reason why I'm particularly sensitive about such things is because I used to work as a professional interpreter and still volunteer my services as one when needed. Interpreters (and translators) need to understand that technical fluency in a language does not make one a good interpreter or translator. Your interpretations and translations must always take into account cultural differences and nuances as well, particularly in this instance where I don't even know how many times over Joo Won's original words were interpreted before a text translation took place. Did he have a Bahasa Indonesian interpreter or English interpreter? If he had the same interpreter that was with him in Singapore, I assume then that it was a Korean-English interpreter, and her style of interpreting (as is common in such settings) is one where the source completes an entire chunk of discourse before the interpreter speaks. In such a manner of communicating, sometimes important information is actually lost. I don't understand Korean, but even then there were times I found that his interpreter (in Singapore) did not use terms that were culturally appropriate in the English speaking context. This entire lot of information then goes to the blogger/reporter who has to decide how to present the data given all other contexts - did the reporter/blogger observe his body language as he spoke? Tone of voice? Interpreter's reactions? All these are so important to the entire interpreting and translating process. If English is not this reporter's first language, was s/he taking from a Korean > Indonesian > English source? I really don't like it when interpretations and translations are not culturally sensitive, and by culture, I mean both target and source sociolinguistic environments. 

Apologies for the rant, but really, to misrepresent Joo Won like this is very irritating. Humph.

@gilaswan I get why are you so irritated and I agree with what you said. Though I have never been an interpreter, I have been translating interviews, articles and videos on Joo Won. I am definitely lacking in terms of technical fluency as well as cultural understanding. What I lack, I hope I made it up by making effort to ensure I get the context and other nuances correct. 

With reference to that offensive passage, I think Joo Won has touched on the same issues in his earlier interviews. I can't find the source to quote but these are what I remember. 

1) Joo Won's first love is the stage. Prior to his debut in 2010 in Baker King, Joo Won was a musical theater actor. He started in his teens right through his early twenties. In 2009, he had a major breakthrough playing the lead role of Melchior in Spring Awakening. Although Joo Won rose to fame through his debut drama and went on to score in Ojakgyo Brothers and Gaksital, he never forgot the stage. He said he was always in awe and admiration for stage actors. Unlike in drama filming where you can do re-takes, you can't do it on stage. But there's a magic of being right there, connecting with the audience. It's something which he can never forget and would want to return to one day. In one interview after OB, Joo Won mentioned Jung Woong In, he said he admires JWI a lot. For his dedication to his art. JWI is also a musical theatre actor. Joo Won said it is not easy for JWI because it's a known fact that theatre doesn't pay well and JWI has children and family to take care of. It was only after Good Doctor in 2013, that Joo Won managed to return to his first love in the musical GHOST. 

So, I think Joo Won was saying that It's not easy to stand on stage and act. He couldn't have been propping himself up because he always said that he is lacking when it comes to musical theater although he loves it so much. And it's true that he's not afraid of taking challenges. This was the boy who worked harder than anyone else in school. He said there were far better looking and more talented kids in Performing Arts school. He could only work harder. Before he had a chance, he worked behind the scenes. He was the handyman, he did props, lighting, almost everything. He joked that he went around school with a hammer and toolbox. That's why I think Joo Won is amazing. If you have been following him and see his BTS, you will often catch him looking at the cameraman's lens, fiddling with other things because he has done these before. 

Joo Won was only the understudy for Melchior. Kim Moo Yeol was the famous one who played the role. Joo Won said he watched over 100 of KMY's performances so much that his hyung asked him why. Then, Kim Moo Yeol got into an accident and the production hastily turned to Joo Won. They were amazed with this young man because he played the part perfectly. I guess after watching that many rehearsals and performances, everything was inside him already. The rest is history. I have come across a review which said Joo Won was better than KMY. Although it was not a critic review or anything, Joo Won became known after his turn as Melchior. The point is that Joo Won is not afraid of challenges because he is prepared to work very hard to perfect his art. He loves what he does and therefore he sees his sacrifices as meaningful and worthy. Everyone can see how he puts his body, mind and soul to each project. 

2) Maybe new fans do not know. Joo Won sees himself acting for a long time. In last year's KBS awards where he won for Good Doctor, he said he will be here for another 60 years. This is a man who wants to be an actor, more than anything. Not your Hallyu star, CF star, Facebook, Twitter celeb or whatever. By the way, Joo Won said in an interview in his early days, he won't live for his fans. I know it won't go well with people but actually, I respect him for it. Don't get me wrong, He is appreciative of his fans but I think he is not focused on fan service. He thinks that the best way to repay the love fans have for him is to present them with better works. 

3) Regarding him taking the role of Lee Kangto in Gaksital, it is true that many actors rejected the part. They did not want to risk their Hallyu status because of Japanese sensitivities. So, Joo Won was not the first choice, it was rumored that Jang Hyuk was offered the role and other famous Hallyu actors. Joo Won said he didn't think about anything except whether it's a good story and good role. He read it and felt that it was a character whom the audience can empathize with.

Joo Won Defends Himself on “Healing Camp”: “I’m Not an Arrogant Person”

Joo Won Defends Himself on “Healing Camp”: “I’m Not an Arrogant Person”

Joo Won, who recently starred in “Yong Pal,” is guesting on the SBS talk show “Healing Camp” to explain the misunderstanding that he spoke informally to his seniors. Often referred to as the king of ratings, his informal speech is the No. 2 search word related to the actor.

joo won

On the show, Joo Won’s seniors from “Yong Pal” send in surprise video messages. “Joo Won has a lot of aegyo,” actress Kim Tae Hee says. “I want a son like that.” Jung Woong In agrees, saying that he wants a younger brother like Joo Won, but then surprises the actor by asking how much his appearance fees are.

Joo Won’s chemistry with Yoo Hae Jin and his habit of speaking informally is a primary focus on the show. “Yoo Hae Jin had asked me why I don’t speak informally to him but I thought that while I might be more comfortable, the people around him would take it badly,” the actor explains. “I am not an impertinent person.”

MC Kim Jae Dong asks him if he had standards for formal and informal speech. “I’ve been using informal speech with Uhm Tae Woong for a long time,” Joo Won says. “So maybe he’s the benchmark . . . ?”

"MC Kim Jae Dong asks him if he had standards for formal and informal speech. “I’ve been using informal speech with Uhm Tae Woong for a long time,” Joo Won says. “So maybe he’s the benchmark . . . ?”"

sounds like the two are still pretty close i'm so hoping joo won would visit taewoong on the superman returns!!! would LOVE to see how he interacts with taewoong's cute little girl. :D

Sorry, i haven't seen your link about this article.

I'm often amused and in the same time puzzled with this informal/formal langage's issue.

As a westerner, I haven't many form to speak to another person. My respect lies first in the "vouvoiement", the french polite form "vous", then in the tone and the sentence 's construct : choice of vocabulary and respect of grammar. But this form is also a way to distance myself, I put a sort of wall to not be too close.

So what surprises me is the need to formal speech to a relative and close friends. So when I read that JW spoke in banmal when he feels comfortable I think it's soooo normal ! This year again a colleague far older than me asked me why I keep on speaking with her with the Madam and not her first name, with the "vous" (formal) and not the "tu" (informal). she was a little annoyed that I didn't speak with her with the same comfort that the others.

When I read that JW spoke banmal with his costars in spite of age or statu, it makes him more real and honnest and human than others, in my french point of view. And i'm really sorry that for other culture and country it sounds rude from him.

Yeah it's sort of curious isn't it! :P I suppose different cultures just have different ideologies when it comes to respect and how it is shown. Regardless, these are the things that makes traveling and exposure to different cultures fun and interesting (: I hail from the sunny island of Singapore so cultural differences be it racial or religious is nothing new, we all just live happily together in this melting pot :lol:

@gilaswan you should share with the rest what you learned about Korean's formal and informal speech. 

What my students said? About it being better to be rude in jondaemal than polite in banmal because you can never be polite in banmal except with family and extremely close friends? 

Actually, similar things happen here too in Singapore right? At least in my circle because of the nature of my work. Many students with whom I have developed a friendship following their completion of a module with me or graduation, often speak casually with me (as how Singaporeans know casual speech) but never drop addressing me formally still. Others attempt to address me by my first name just to see how I will react (and normally I don't bother once they have graduated) and then decide if they feel comfortable enough to keep speaking with me in that manner thereafter. Then there are those who make very deliberate attempts at bridging that status-relationship ("Can I call you such-and-such?"). But with our culture, it's a lot of guess work involved though. I cannot imagine any of my colleagues telling students, "No, you can't!" once they have graduated - at least, I can't imagine myself wanting to say anything like that. But I reckon my body language will show if I truly think it's ok or not. There are just some I feel more comfortable with and others I don't. Social relationships and speech acts - SO COMPLEX.

To me, the dumbfounding part is the importance and implications of formal and informal speech in the Korean Society. I don't want to sound offensive but it's like stressing on the superficial rather than the substance. 

I think I wrote on Yong Pal thread that years ago, I asked Softy the blogger at Cadence how is it that Joo Won is well known for being respectful towards his elders and yet at the same time, he joked about using banmal. Softy who's Korean, explained that Joo Won would never disrespect his elders and therefore he would always use jondaemal. However, he is also someone who is very affectionate and likes to get closer to people he likes. So, on those occasions or people with whom he uses banmal, they never take offence. They actually draw closer to him. For example, Uhm Tae Woong who worked with Joo Won in Special Investigation Unit, was at first taken aback when once Joo Won dropped the informal speech. I am not sure if Joo Won continued with it but UTW and JW became really close.

Our speech acts are no less superficial. Their sociolinguistic structure is just not as familiar to us, but for them, honorifics = substance. It's a bit like how we might look at communities that don't use "proper" terms to address older or younger siblings. Not sure about you, but I am sensitive to such terms. I find it somewhat inappropriate that younger cousins these days don't all use these proper terms of address now.

Singapore has a less definitive norm for the lack of better word or phrase. Like you said, you are sensitive to such terms. I am different, I grew up calling my older siblings by their names. And they are a lot older than me.

Actually, we have our own ways of determining formalities in speech as well. Interestingly, some of my students just did a research piece on this and they looked at how Singlish is our version of banmal. Hahaha... they could be right! Imagine JooWon giving his press con in Singlish. :blink::lol:

After Korean Drama Awards, I read somewhere that 80% of the netizens' comments was on how Kim Soo Hyun deserved the award, 10% were hurling insults on Yong Pal writer and Kim Tae Hee for winning and 5% expressed disappointment that Joo Won didn't win. Piqued, I asked our Korean translator, sdee if she came upon this. She replied me in this interesting and perceptive post*: 

edited with her permission*
 
KoreaDrama Award is the same award I told you about before that they only give awards to the ones attending the Awards.  If JooWon went, I am pretty sure the result may have been different.  This is the awards that they did not give an award JooWon for Goo Doctor.  Good Doctor's writer won because he was there at the awards.  JooWon couldn't make it for his schedule at that time and once again because of his schedule this time as well.  
For me, this really doesn't count as real deserving awards.  It's not due to their merit but just because they showed up for the awards from the list.
 

I want to share this with you...

SBS%20InstaGram_zpsgf4lftei.jpg


 

Translation:
sbsstar/JooWon you who are working like a cow
Monday 11:15 PM <Healing Camp> 
 
#Now Won't you become SBS employee# JooWon# YongPalYi# JOOWON

#HealingCamp#SBSSTAR#HEALINGCAMP 

 
It's evident SBS has fallen in love with Joo Won.  KBS and MBC both are very visibly sending out a love call to JooWon to their Broadcasting System through their entertainment news.
 
I have a feeling SBS is not going to just let JooWon go without an awards this year.  Also, consensus of the public is on JooWon's acting ability in YongPalYi.  Many are even saying JooWon saved YongPalYi to be the drama of what it became.  The writer had received many criticisms for towards ending of the drama.  
 
Also most importantly, it's evident JooWon is not really into receiving Awards.  He does like it but it's not the ultimate goal for acting.  He says if he receives, it encourages him but it also burdens him if it's big awards.  It's consistent with his goal wanting to be a long lasting actor and to become better actor in his30- 40's than in his 20's.  If he wanted awards, he would be attending all the awards instead of going for FM's.  
 
Regarding BaekSang, I consider it more of a popularity contest than a real awards or real recognition of the acting the actors have done.  Even for a popularity awards, there are loop-holes that one person can vote as many as they want, it just will cost them $$.  So, the management company who are spending lots of money by hiring the part-timers would end up with more votes...this is why I say these awards are not up to par with say awards like PD that cannot be biased.  I guess it looks good to overseas fans but from Korean insiders, they respect it with a nod for their popularity but they all would know who really deserves the awards that year.  
 
It was pretty funny KBS did a special of JooWon while YPY was airing and they literally said, hope for your DaeSang (Best Actor's Awards) from KBS next year.  kkk  And they even flashed the words JooWon being called 'KBS Employee"
 
I say JW will have more of a respect built even without those KoreanDrama Awards or BaekSang Awards, going forward and in his later years.  Who knows, in 10 years, JW may win even more awards than his peer.. or even in 20 years, JW may be more on top in Korea than anyone in his age group.  And I think JW is looking at his acting life in long length this way, instead of this year...  I heard that in Healing Camp, (talk show format) he talked of his life in 20's.  And he said he does not have any regrets looking back at his life at this time.  He will keep going at it the same way in his 30's and in 40's and I think ultimately what he is after is to look back and be able to say, I have no regrets in my acting life.  I did the best I can every moment, hour, day, and year. 
 
The hard work he's laid down as foundation in his high school placed him as a Musical Actor.
The hard work he's laid down during the time as a Musical Actor led him to screens and exploded on screen.
Now, what he built in his 20's I truly believe will show up as  rewards to reap in his 30's and so forth.  
And I truly believe that the way he's working up one level at a time is considered well earned and deserved when looked back by everyone including even his antis in later years.  It will be undeniably more powerful than actors built with powerful backing from their rich management company.   
 
Truthfully, it would be much sweeter if JW sweeps all top awards in his later years.  That will prove that he's receiving it not because of his popularity from international fad at those years when the actors are young flower boys but out of real respect for the craft he's built since he was 15.
 
This is what I am reading from JW's one of the message to his fans a year or two years ago.  He said the road is going to be rough and very long...I think that was him warning us who wanted to be his fans to be prepared to support a marathon runner instead of a sprinter and have patience believing in his goal that's far far ahead...10, 20, 30 years.
 
I know you are not into a person's reading or astrology but the one I translated this year for you before YPY aired... he's future gets better and better as he lives on.  I guess what I was trying to say in this long email (again... sorry) is don't be disheartened or disappointed by these awards for one year.  Let 's look at accumulated result later when JW"s say in 40's and 50's.  ^^
For now, I am just happy JW is being loved by the entertainment industry and even being respected at his young age. ^^

Ooooh... JooWon ssi... you must win awards this year otherwise there is no justice ah... And I agree - awards where attendance is a pre-requisite for winning just isn't prestigious enough. No loss, Joo Won ssi!

I know I keep saying this, but watching Good Doctor - aiyoh... JooWon so cutie. His role in Good Doctor makes him even cutee-er. :wub:
