Joo Won 주원 [Upcoming Movie "Carter" 2021]


Recommended Posts

Yes, Joo Won is literally being milked. 

I don't have anything nice to say about Sim. I am only thankful that they let him do his musical last year. However, I also had doubts about that one, I wondered if Sim had made a bargain and got him to do some projects of their pick in exchange. It has been widely rumored since 7th Level Civil Servant that Sim made Joo Won head projects which they have invested in. I am not sure how it works. But seems like they buy rights to say a webtoon like Fashion King, get some second rate writer and PD, make Joo Won headline the project and tag a few Sim rookies. Projects named were Fashion King(the movie), Catch Me(movie), Tomorrow Cantabile. The Chinese movie which has been completed and not screened, remains a mystery. At that time, DC even said that Joo Won would appear in 2 Chinese movies. The 2nd which thankfully never happened was called Plastic Sisters. 

I hope That Man will do well. To me, it's like some independent production house movie. I don't know who's the writer or PD. They should be thankful that they can ride on Joo Won's success in Yong Pal. 

Joowon is definitely SIM's first star below 30s who are internationally popular and is receiving lots of love in Korea itself. Other SIM actors are also well known, but they are in their own league because they are above 30s and 40s and dont have a huge fan-base. They dont do much promotions locally, and never overseas except for Uhm Junghwa.

Remember last year when Joowon turned down C'est Si Bon and took up Fashion King instead? Was this the time where some DC representatives went to see SIM representatives for a discussion on his choice of projects? I forgot what was the outcome. But Joowon posted in Joowon508 after that, asking us to trust him. We still doubted some of his projects, though.

Joowon cries... I cry too~ All the hardships and happiness that we went through together the past couple of years... It has been a roller-coaster ride being in this fandom. Joowon has had to work so h

Hai girls! Sorry I've been out of it for the past couple of days. I didnt have time to go to soompi, hadnt even back-tracked the pages since Saturday and my phone takes the longest time ever to upload

The reason why JW was bending down and looking at the man. Cr as tagged. Many asked me why I like JW and why I like him for so long?  THIS. Plus his acting. 

Poor boy... yes. the Chinese movie sounds awfully suspect (but er... I find anything Chinese awfully suspect actually. Not meaning to offend, but even when they said that JCW was considering a Chinese project, I was also like :huh:. Things that make you go, "hmm...". 

I do think he's getting older and more experienced though, and with all the seniors who know him and I'm sure speak to him, he will be able to work out what's best. If SIM is as horrid as they appear to be, then hopefully he will leave them once his contract expires. I'm sure his parents advise him as well.

Managing a young star also means that you have to deal with a different type of fanbase. We have done a few fan projects and all I will say here is Sim doesn't know how to work with fans. I am not questioning their intention, the impression I have is that they seemed not to have neither the know how nor the resources. And a young star will attract anti-fans who are fans of his peers. These days, the power to spread rumors is not confined to the print. It's online forum and social media. 

About the Cest Si Bon incident, DC fans never had the meeting with Sim. As for Joo Won's message, what do we expect him to say? I only regret putting him through more pressure. 

I never knew how much he had to go through until I watched Healing Camp. And that's only the tip of the iceberg, a tiny bit of which he allowed us to see. I am sure it's a lot worse. Joo Won is intelligent and mature beyond his years. Don't let that child-like innocence make you think otherwise. In praising Kim Tae Hee, Joo Won said, he wondered how she can be so pure-hearted after being in the entertainment business for many years. He's absolutely right about showbiz. It's not a nice place and Joo Won knows this. In a way, he is like Kim Tae Hyun. He loves acting like Tae Hyun loves doctoring. But the system he needs to survive in is complicated and corrupted. He may not always be recognized for being a good doctor but he will build his group of loyal supporters. People who truly see his worth and value him for who he is.

Is it possible to make Joo Won's voice my ring tone? 

I kind of forgot he spoke English in Tomorrow Cantabile. But I cannot forget his voice in the SG fanmeet. When he spoke English, I think "my soul drifted" out - Korean has a phrase for this :D

He has got such a beautiful voice, so manly. Now, I revisit TC and boy, other than the unqiue way Korean end words with "t", his English sounds much better than those I have heard of other others. I just love his voice. 

Alamak,,,,,i am supposed to go for a meeting and here i am in dreamland

 

Did he speak English in SG fanmeet? I only heard him say "Hello~" but speaks Korean all other time. kekeke! Or maybe I was too busy staring at him to notice anything else.

@Ma OO can you imagine him wear the tight black pants in the fanmeeting? How do you think we will react is he does? Oh gosh... Just the thought of his assets in tight black pants is making me go funny... :D

I didn't see what kind of pants he was wearing till I rewatched video. All I see is his handsome beautiful face... I just want to cuddle him. No pants needed... I mean I don't care about fashion...

 

HEY! I am supposed to be gardener!

It's amazing to see Joowon again in "guerrilla date" & judging from his appearance in Indonesia, Singapore & Sungshin Women University, you can see his popularity has certainty increased. But I am worried about the security handling the hysterically-charged crowds. I have seen this excitement & craziness before during the "Ghost" musical, albeit a smaller crowd but somehow you tend to get loss in this emotional craziness... Please..please... do take care.

SIM is a good place for rising stars but may not be a good place for Joo Won,who is a famous actor. It is like Sim is the small,beautiful and peaceful pond and JW is an overgrown fish stuck there. Sim,in term of budget,reputation and ability,is failing to handle Joo Won well. While,I don't care about the problem with antis,I am more worried about the management of Joo Won's activities.

I almost forget Joo Won last year partially due to the decisions he made for his projects. The news of Chinese movies freaked me out,especially plastic lovers. Then Fashion King,I still cannot accept that movie at all. I didn't even touch.TC wasn't much help either. Then I became busy and he slowly faded away in my mind until he made a grand comeback with Yongpal. Only last month then I learnt that he was forced to do some projects by SIM. And those projects were failures. 

SIM was good for Joo Won when he first started as an actor. They promoted him from musical actor to drama actor and found him good projects for him to grow.But as Joo Won become more and more famous,they started to use him for other purposes . The schedules for promotion become too tasking and  he was also forced to promote his juniors. I am quite amazed that he is willing to do that. He is simply too sympathetic towards them as he know the path for new actor is much more difficult. I don't see him leaving SIM anytime soon too. He seems to be very loyal like one of you said. Also,the fact that SIM helped build his career, he might feel too sorry to reject them. In fact,if it is me,I will force myself to stay too. Until It reaches my breaking point. I think JW is that kind of person too. But I really hope SIM will not push him until that point.

Then about antis, it is totally useless and waste of time taking about them. I usually don't read those.What I want to tell you all is everyone has it. BE it LMH or KSH or any other famous actors.They are from powerful agencies so they have money to shut antis up and sue them,but most of the time,they don't. Don't ever think about SIM doing that,it is small company,no extra funds to handle this. We all know JW is sensitive and it is normal. I just wish that JW will not listen to them at all and shake it off.  No point handling them,it will only waste money and time. The best way is JW's fans should continue to love him and show him that we are here for him. Leave antis alone.They will not stop.Even, Kim Tae Hee,who has everything has millions of antis and forced to live with it. She was insulted before YP,during YP and after YP but she pulled it through. 

What we should care about more is antis forming within the entertainment cycle. And I foresee it happening if SIM fail to manage JW well. Now,SBS and KBS are fighting over JW as their employee. If SIM anyhow handle this matter,One of the stations or both might turn their back on him. Especially SBS.I knew that because I am following Shinhwa and  SBS totally ignored Shinhwa for years because they did not choose SBS to broadcast their variety show. They were banned totally and was badly publicized by SBS. SIM has to smart to not offend both stations and reject carefully if needed. If not, JW might be outcasted.

I don't know anything about how official fanclubs work and how DC tried to communicate SIM so I will not comment on them discussing with SIM for JW.If it is for good,go for it. Just don't make JW in the middle of this "war". Then,good communication and praises are important to get what you want.

Joo Won Guerilla's Date at Sungshin Women's University 

He's there to promote his movie 'That Man'

Look at the crowd! 

web_3696274309_ad0c0300_IMG_20151015_145

I am laughing at the hands. Doesn't everyone wants to touch him? 

 cute!

 

 

Woah! So many people! I am actually very happy to see Cutie getting the attention and love of so many people! I would like for many more to get to know him and his works. And hopefully, this rise in his popularity would lead to more options for future works for him. And hopefully again, SIM would prioritize what is best for Joo Won more than what's best for the company. I don't know who released the article regarding the choices made by Joo Won vs the choices made by SIM but it actually makes sense. While Cutie did make the roles/characters endearing, you could totally see the fluff storyline and the,  shall we say, hidden motive of perhaps SIM in having him do those projects. I wish they'd just let him or help him choose projects which would further help him grow as an actor and as a star.

Don't shoot me 진구 :sweatingbullets:, but I'm doing all this reading about the somewhat poor job SIM is doing, managing cutie. and I really find myself wishing that he'd follow Won Bin's example and just skip doing appearances altogether.  Then he'd have time to do what he loves- acting.  Obviously this would be sad for me as a fan girl, but at least he wouldn't have to deal with the antis bothering him!!

Joowon is doing that. But instead of skipping TV appearances or fanmeetings (God forbid, NO!), he skips some CF offers. He mentioned this in Healing Camp. He said he wanted to focus more on acting, though he did take up some advertising brands. Joowon doesnt have that star power like other actors before Yongpal started. He was known in Korea, but not well enough like those of his age group. So he cannot skip these appearances because he still needs to build up his name in the industry to get good drama/movie offers.

I think Joowon has the upper hand in choosing the dramas he wanted to do. As for movies... I think this is where he was taken advantage of. The only thing that made me non-skeptical about That Guy (premiering soon) is that Yoo Hae Jin is in that movie too. He's a great actor himself, and chooses his projects with care. Joowon's other movie projects were not very successful, though I quite like Fashion King and Catch Me. The harsh reality is that although Joowon really loves acting, but he cannot escape from the management's decisions sometimes. Or he chooses not to.

I wont start on how SIM is promoting Joowon and handling fans. I can write an essay on that. All I can feel now is that SIM is milking Joowon as best they can. I just hope Joowon knows what's best for himself. He's mature for his age, he sought help from his senior actors and he thinks a lot about his future in the industry.

@farbarri  Whatever the case may be (he can't get out from SIM's orders or if just doesn't want to), as a fangirl I think I just find it frustrating to see him pulled in so many different directions.  :tears: But as you say, he's a smart and mature guy with his eye on the future... and truth be told I really don't want JooWon copying Won Bin and disappearing in between projects.  It's crazy frustrating!!

I cannot say Joo Won has upper hand in choosing dramas. I sure hope so. 

As for movies, I am not surprised he does not have choice. Many young actors don't. If you look at Korean movie scene, you will see that it's dominated by a different set of actors altogether. Very few, even famous drama actors cross over successfully. Joo Won's more popular peers didn't get that many chances or had great success either in the movies. The only person who's making somewhat a breakthrough now is Yoo Ah In but he's not headlining those movies. However, I do protest that Sim puts him in any movie they can. I guess they have the dilemma - should they try to promote his movie career by taking on anything or wait till a good offer comes along, if any. Having veteran actors, famous actors whatsoever do not make a successful movie. Most movies tank because they failed from the very start. Sometimes, I think the people involved in this start in the wrong order. They get the actors whom they think can carry the movie to success and then they find any writer or director. At least this is the impression I get from the movies Joo Won starred in.

Almost all if not all agencies care about is their bottom line. I forgot to elaborate on this when I said earlier that Sim milks Joo Won. It's expected, they are a business entity. 

 

However, how they 'milk' him is the crux of the matter.

In 2013, after 7LCS ended, Joo Won filmed Catch Me. Then he went on to start on Good Doctor. At that time, I was wondering if he could prepare sufficiently for his role as the savant with autism. I admit I was skeptical but the teaser blew me away. Right after Good Doctor, Joo Won went straight to start rehearsing for GHOST the musical. Well, that one was his choice. But I remember that during GHOST run where he appeared 3 times a week(was it more?), Joo Won had to do Japanese fanmeets almost every week. I think this is not known to all. We saw the Japanese websites carrying information on Joo Won's exclusive meetings with fans. I can't remember the exact details but the itinerary had Joo Won taking the coach with Japanese fans and bringing them to Morning Calm Village(a resort operated by Sim). There, he will host a meeting of fan activities before retiring for the night. The following morning, he will have breakfast with fans. And the part which I can't remember is if he then brings the fans back to Seoul to watch the musical or the fans watched the musical first and then follow Joo Won to Morning Calm. 

I don't expect Sim not to milk Joo Won, I just hope they don't kill their golden goose who's laying them golden eggs. Please tell me they are smarter than this because they give me doubts when they shouldn't at all. 

Sim has already rustled some feathers according to my source. The media boo-boo for Tomorrow Cantabile caused some fall out for Joo Won. So you are absolutely right about Sim handling the industry people properly. I am now worried about that. I don't know if I have brought up this matter here. My Korean source tells me quite a lot of things going on behind the scenes but I don't bring them up much. Mostly because these are unconfirmed and unofficial. One of the things I was told more than a year back was that production staff were chatting among themselves about how badly managed Joo Won was and that he's such a nice guy and deserves way better. I even saw the screenshots of these supposed chats. How people got their hands on them, i do not know. 

Still, when I saw that DC message, I got worried again. I am not for fans pressurizing Sim or worse, taking things into their own hands and suing antis. The latter which got me flummoxed. I mean, like really? Maybe I don't know how bad these things can be. I just hope Joo Won is not affected too adversely. From the previous experience, I think he wants to deal with this himself. He might seek advice from his seniors. I don't think fans can do anything much or should except to give him love and support.

O.O K-ent is brutal, is all I have to say.  I suppose, however, it's just like every other industry.  There's good apples and bad apples, and all we can do is hope that JooWon has good people surrounding him who won't let things go poorly for him.  As an example of a company that did/is doing fairly well by their golden goose: Hook Ent and Lee Seung Gi.  Maybe SIM will take a few pages out of their book. 

(I just realized that I may have committed a terrible sin by mentioning another man on this thread :P Sorry my fellow cuties!!)

I did read an article about this somewhere, about him not preferring to do CF offers. There were so many articles after the Healing Camp that I dont know where the article is anymore.

I'll just shut up. :vicx:

Wow~ Has Joowon's salary increased? It was previously reported that he received 50 million won. Now he is reported to obtain higher salary. That's great! :D

 

Recent article's translation:

According to a recent bangsongga 'you come from stars, "Kim Soo-hyun as a' Jekyll Hyde, or 'one starring Hyun Bin starred in the' producers' has received 100 million won synagogue. 'The lord sun, So Ji-sub and' It's all right, love's 'salary of Jo In Sung has amounted to 80 million won, yukryong this Narsha' infant, 'heirs' Lee, 'you're all surrounded' Lee Seung Gi was priced a salary of 70 million won. Here Kim Woo-bin, Joo Won, Song Joong-gi, Lee Jong-seok, including the salary of the next generation of top stars also rose to man situation 60-70 million won.

Do we have a rule against mentioning other actors? I honestly can't remember. I think it's not so much that we can't stand the mention but rather we don't want to spark fan wars. There are people  here who fangirls more than just JW. So if  I say JW is better than X then it might offend some. 

About agencies again, i dont think Sim is the worst. I am sure there are much worse out there. It's just that we want the best for him.  I have no idea which agency is considered the best in Korea. And it's not as simple as that,  Joo Won has chosen a certain path which may not be congruent with the agency's goals no matter how good they are.

I am thinking of Kim Tae Hee's words- that Joo Won is manly on screen but off screen, he uses baby words and in short, adorable. 

@gilaswan found him cute and adorable when she saw him at the Press Con. I don't know....at the Suntec event, although he was sometimes cute on stage, I found him very manly at all other times. Can I borrow some pure thoughts?
