That's okay - I'm just glad to see a response from you at all :) I mean, rationally, I was sure that maybe you were just busy or tired - or that this challenge was just uber-tough - but, well, with the news that's coming out from India lately re: COVID-19 case counts...you can't blame me for being just a tad worried, you know?

 

No, it is not because of the challenge. I had exam to attend and was totally exhausted by the time I was done. And, yeah cases are rising in India, but now recovery rates are more than infection rate, so, I am not saying it is bad, vulnerable section are still suffering due to lock down and not able to get medical attentions for other diseases.

Dang...even with just one overlap (#7 - for which I used a back-up response), this round was tougher than I thought it would be. But it was fun, nonetheless

It was fun and challenging at the same time. I think the overlap is due to the musical characters have lot of similarities with the Joo won's main leads

limb and say Cha Yoo Jin from Nae Il's Cantabile, solely because of that arrogant-exterior-meets-softer-interior thing.

I thought of picking up Cha Yoo jin too, but I did not choose him to avoid overlap:P

 

 

Overall, we managed to avoid overlapping^_^

Glad to hear that - hope your exam went well :)

As for COVID-19, I know that in the grand scheme of things, India's been okay - it's got a notably high recovery rate, and for a country of over 1 billion people, 6-7 million people sick is still a very small part of the population. But still, looking at this as a Canadian (where our total case count is just under 165,000 right now), numbers like what we see coming from India are just mind-boggling. And then there's the US, which is just a mess :confused:

I was surprised with you are Hwang Tae Beom answer, I know he is show-off but he not like that in first meeting, we can clearly see he likes to play according to the situation

Well, population of Canada is much less than India and also, I am not trying to brush it off as a population thing. Everyone was expecting this, but the good thing is infection rate is high among the age group below 40, and also death rate is also low when compared to USA and Brazil, but the more worrying thing for us is unseen effects of Pandemic, like economics, education and access to Health are severely disturbed.

Okay, this isn't exactly JW-related, but it is Alice-related, so I'll share it anyway :) 

 

You guys all remember this scene where Yoon Tae Yi totally beat Park Jin Gyeom at building the table, right? Yeah, it turns out that Kim Hee Sun literally knows how to do it in real life. I don't know if she learned how while filming Alice (and put those skills to good use again here), or if she knew to begin with, but either way, she's awesome:piggydance:

 

(Scenes from a recent guest appearance on My Little Old Boy - I think the episode aired rather recently, but from the dialogue, it sounds like it was filmed in August. And for those wondering how Kim Hee Sun and Im Won Hee know each other, I can think back to them acting together in Room No. 9, at least.)

I think everyone's feeling the long-term effects now, which is probably why a lot of countries can't do as much to prevent the spread during the second wave (which Canada is in the middle of right now) - we got the first wave under control by really clamping down on closing schools, businesses, etc., but there's no way we can realistically go into a lockdown again now as there's really only been a month or two's worth of restarting the economy before this second wave hit. So local governments have been reluctant to take that step, and the long-term effects are starting to show with a second wave that could very well turn out worse than the first.

 

As for the infection rate in Canada, it was higher among poor, racialized, and older people in the first wave where I live (what it did to retirement and long-term care homes was just brutal), but the second wave has been predominantly young people (i.e. people under 40) living in the dense condo-packed downtown core - so, a whole other socio-economic, racial, age-based, etc. demographic than before. However, @kireeti2, if things play out in India as they have here, you should note that COVID-19 will not stay with young people for long - the more young people get infected, the more the older generations around them will, too, and the pendulum will eventually swing back into that more vulnerable population. That's what we're dealing with now: c. 60% of new infections are still among people under 40, but it was closer to 70% not that long ago, and it's still steadily dropping. :( So don't breathe that sigh of relief just yet.

So, now that Round One of the Disney-Drama Character Associations Challenge has been released for a while, it's time for me to release Round Two. And this time, it's time for the girls :)

 

Spoiler

Disney-Drama Character Associations: Round Two (Girls)

 

If you've seen the musical theatre version of this, you already know the drill. But just in case you need a refresher, the question is simple: which female character from JW's dramas comes to your mind when you hear each song, and why?

 

Again: answers can be ANY female character (lead, supporting, random extras you could describe but can't name, etc.) from ANY of JW's dramas. The only rule here is that you can't name the same drama character twice ;) 

 

No right or wrong answers - in true Disney spirit, just let your imagination go wild! :hwaiting:

 

1. "The Place Where Lost Things Go" (from Mary Poppins Returns)

 

Disney character: Mary Poppins

 

 

2. "I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors)" (from Moana)

 

Disney character: Moana

 

 

3. "I Won't Say I'm in Love" (from Hercules)

 

Disney character: Megara

 

 

4. "Loyal, Brave, and True" (from Mulan)

 

Disney character: Mulan

 

 

5. "That's How You Know" (from Enchanted)

 

Disney character: Giselle - Yes, I'm totally throwing this in just so we have at least one girly-girl in the list ;) 

 

 

6. "The Next Right Thing" (from Frozen 2)

 

Disney character: Anna

 

 

7. "Mother Knows Best" (from Tangled)

 

Disney character: Mother Gothel - and...there's my villain contribution as well ;) 

 

 

8. "Speechless" (from Aladdin)

 

Disney character: Jasmine

 

Extra challenge: since I'd already linked this song to Gu Ja Kyung from King of Baking, Kim Tak Gu once, we have to use a different JW drama character this time around. :P

I have been binge-watching Alice, and am I the only one who doesn't see the loveline? I feel like people are seeing a loveline only due to the fact that Joo Won and Kim Hee Sun have amazing chemistry.

 

From what I've seen, it's only the intl fans who see a "loveline" between them. The Korean viewers all don't and have been talking about how playing mother and son, is just a waste of their chemistry.

lol - Nae Il's definitely the shoo-in choice for this one - which means that now I need to think of a back-up ;) 

 

Actually, while I was watching the video, I realized 1) the guy's reactions throughout are totally like Cha Yoo Jin's; and 2) the number of things that are mentioned in the song that Yoo Jin does end up doing in Seolleim in Salzburg eventually...which is actually pure coincidence.

This one was really interesting because I don't think we've seen Kim Do Yeon being pushed into such a corner yet in Alice - however, it is nice to think that this is how she would react under the same circumstances.

 

So, again, I'm still thinking on my own responses (and, not counting #5, need at least one other back-up ;)), but I'll be sure to share them once I'm ready.

I don't see a loveline - at least, not a complete one (although there is reasonable argument for Tae Yi having feelings for Jin Gyeom at this point) - but I will also admit to being generally blind to romance. Like, you pretty much have to hit me over the head with overtly romantic gestures like hugs or kisses for me to see it :P

This one took me a while to puzzle out, but I think I get it now. My guess is that you answered for the grandmother in the scene - but Moana is actually the granddaughter ;)

From 'Alice' → 'Ghost' Joo Won, unstoppable since his military discharge. 

 

When the actor Joo Won, was preparing for the premiere of the musical 'Ghost' 7 years ago, he was finishing up the drama 'Good Doctor' (2013). 

 

Whilst completing his drama schedule, he had started practicing for the musical, and had to juggle between practice and his filming schedules.

 

Joo Won who was thankful and happy to have received much love and attention, is a bit regretful. As he looks back, it was a shame that he couldn't focus on each task more. So this time when he met with the work 'Ghost' again after 7 years, his mindset is different. He has more time to enjoy it now.

 

Joo Won took the challenge to do a musical. 'Ghost' is based on the hit 1990s film 'Love and Soul' (Ghost), starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Ghost which premiered in Korea in 2013 as the "first Non-English in Asia" was a box-office hit. Attracting more than 230,000 viewers during it's 7 month run, Joo Won's return to the musical stage, after 4 years was also highly acclaimed. 

 

Joo Won says that he was waiting for a revival of the musical 'Ghost' more than anyone else. 

 

JW: "7 years ago, I thought 'I wish that I could do this musical again after my military service.' And the other actors too, half jokingly said 'let's do it again!' I found myself thinking about being on stage and about the show even when I was in the military, and was worried 'what if they don't call me?' But I'm glad that I'm able to do the show again."

 

"The most different thing from seven years ago was my attitude towards my works. When I was doing the first show, I felt happy and pleasant, but there was something lacking. Because, I had such a busy schedule that I didn't have much memory of my performances. After seven years, I'm trying to fix that regret. It was really nice to be back on stage. From practice to rehearsal, I realised that 'I love the stage so much.' "

 

"This time, I've been thinking, 'let's play a little more and let's have fun.' I'm doing things that I've never even tried before because I have more ideas. Also, I have more time to talk with the actors and the staff, so I'm trying to express my opinions and do various things. I'm going to try many different things and break the stereotype I have of the character. I'm trying to create a more lively character."

 

"In the play, I am forced to act with extreme emotions. Sometimes, I get so immersed in it that my limbs start to shake. It was the hardest part of practice."

 

"This role is very emotionally difficult. It's really hard to control my feelings at times, and on some days, I can't even sing properly because I'm so absorbed. On top of that, the director told me not to control my emotions, so I'm looking into a way to get into the role, and be able to sing well at the same time." 

 

"I interpret the role differently now, as compared to 7 years ago. In the play for example, Sam can't say "I love you" to Molly. Back then, I didn't this, but now I'm trying to understand the role more. Now I'm imagining stories and creating background stories about Sam and why he can't say 'I love you.' Now that I'm trying to understand my character more, my acting has become more convincing. Even if I do one line, I feel differently about it every time."

 

"While on stage, there's a sense of loneliness. Since I'm playing ghost, no one can see or hear me, I can't help but feeling lonely. But since it's part of the role, I have to keep that feeling." 

 

Recently, Joo Won has also been receiving much love for his role in the SBS drama 'Alice.' He had a short 'vacancy due to enlistment.' A celebrity who is indeed a celebrity. 

 

JW: "It was a difficult drama, but it was time to try different things. There are so many channels, and so many things to watch and for people to enjoy, that I wanted to try something new. And that was 'Alice.' I was happy that I was able to that I was able to do this drama. I hope the drama, and the musical 'Ghost' does well." 

 

"It is not easy to ask audiences to come see our musical. With Corona 19 looming, it is an important time for everyone's health. Everyone participating is anxious because we don't know what's going to happen. I'm really doing my personal quarantine more thoroughly than anyone else for every performance. I hope 'Ghost' can be a comforting piece during these difficult times."

**I didn't translate the parts where he talks about the special effects or spoilers about the musical. I didn't wanna spoil the magic for those who are planning to see go see him.

@airplanegirl - Thanks for sharing that interview! lol - it does make me wonder if JW's comparison between his crazy 2013 schedule and now is a subtle hint that he's not gonna be coming back to dramaland anytime soon, though :P 

 

I'm also glad to see/hear that JW's taking COVID-19 and the need to maintain physical distancing seriously. It's tough that this is happening now - live performance artists of all sorts (theatre, music, etc.) are taking a hard hit now because there's no way to get a large audience safely anymore - but I'm glad that, in his comments at least, he and his fellow cast members are looking at the bigger picture. I know that doesn't say much about what he's really thinking on the inside (because, well, complaining about the need to physically distance would also be social suicide right now :P), but from my own North American perspective, I'm willing to take any good sign that I can get.

 

And I'm also here for my responses to Round Two of my Disney-Drama Characters Associations Challenge. As a quick preface, I do want to say that I'm going out on a limb with some of my choices, as they involve my imagined forward projections or backstory for Alice characters based on what we know so far - meaning that, depending on how the remaining 6 episodes go, I could end up completely wrong :P 

 

Spoiler

1. "The Place Where Lost Things Go" (from Mary Poppins Returns)

 

This is the answer that involves possible Alice backstory, as I actually wound up thinking of Kim In Sook (i.e. Go Hyung Seok's wife - by the way, I noticed that the English Wikipedia puts his name as "Hyeon Seok", but the Korean hangeul is "Hyung/Hyeong" ;)). My reasoning here is that despite not knowing Park Sun Young personally (just like Mary Poppins doesn't know the children's late mother personally), she still wants to be there for Jin Gyeom when he's orphaned - and unlike many well-meaning individuals who haven't experienced loss themselves, I imagine that she'd know better than to just suggest that Jin Gyeom move on from the past. Instead, as someone who's been there before (due to the death of her son), I can imagine her trying to say something similar to what we hear in this song to Jin Gyeom: that it's okay to grieve, but that it's also important to remember that those we've lost are not truly gone so long as we remember them.

 

(Mind you: given Jin Gyeom's character, this message...may or may not actually get through to him. But I can see Mrs. Go trying nonetheless.)

 

2. "I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors)" (from Moana)

 

And now, a double-whammy for Alice - but this time, looking forward rather than thinking back. What jumps out to me the most about Moana's character in this scene is that when she comes up against what feels like an insurmountable setback, she finds the strength to go on in her love and passion for both her people and the sea itself - and that's something she realizes she inherited from her ancestors. With that in mind, I actually found myself thinking about 2020 Yoon Tae Yi. We still don't know what her journey's going to look like in full, but I think there's no way her own ancestry (being the daughter of the author of the Book of Prophecy) was just coincidence: instead, I imagine that that's not only the reason behind her lifelong interest in physics and time travel, but that it's going to actually play a significant role in her life going forward, perhaps even compelling her to continue pursuing time travel (or stopping it - either way works) despite the odds.

 

3. "I Won't Say I'm in Love" (from Hercules)

 

Here, I'm going with something a bit more lighthearted: Princess Hye Myung from My Sassy Girl. I know that I usually focus on her tough, headstrong side - but here, I'm changing things up by looking at the rom-com side of her story. To be fair, I get the sense watching the drama that she starts developing feelings for Gyun Woo well before she's ready to admit it - and her servants (who are also her closest friends) see it coming from a mile away :P 

 

4. "Loyal, Brave, and True" (from Mulan)

 

My pick for this one is Han Yeo Jin from Yong Pal. First of all, I think that her determination to reclaim her place as Hanshin's CEO is to continue her parents' legacy - knowing that she's the rightful heir despite being the younger sibling. However, more importantly, I can see in this song Yeo Jin's own internal struggle between maintaining an aggressive war-like persona on the outside while still remaining a good person on the inside - she fails in the endeavour more often than not (and tries to rationalize her choices by claiming that she was "a crocodile" all along - an explanation that Tae Hyun's definitely not buying), but that desire is still inside of her and it's what allows her to finally come back around in the end.

 

5. "That's How You Know" (from Enchanted)

 

lol - Well, Nae Il would be the obvious pick, so I knew I'd need a backup from the start here :P So, just for fun, I'm gonna choose Nurse Song from Yong Pal - i.e. the nurse who's got a huge crush on Kim Tae Hyun. While it's true that she's unlike Giselle in her tendency to play hard to get (fishing for favours, then getting miffed when Tae Hyun turns her down), once he does start getting friendlier as the drama progresses...she's caught hook, line, and sinker :P 

 

6. "The Next Right Thing" (from Frozen 2)

 

This is where I'm putting Baek Ja Eun from Ojakgyo Brothers. There's nothing really elaborate here in my reasoning: just that I see similarities between Anna and Ja Eun in their core optimism and their determined "one step at a time" approach to dealing with extremely hard times (for Anna, it's losing her sister; for Ja Eun, it's losing her father).

 

7. "Mother Knows Best" (from Tangled)

 

So...Seo In Sook was also my first choice, meaning that this is the one I needed to find a backup for ;) So, fortunately, in JW's dramas so far, there are two antagonistic "mother" characters already - and I'm gonna go with the other one: the Queen (i.e. Hye Myung's stepmother) from My Sassy Girl. Like Mother Gothel, she's got the outward appearance of a loving and protective mother, but with strong ulterior motives. Also, we see in Gothel's approach towards Rapunzel the various types of emotional abuse the Queen shows to her stepchildren: overprotection for the sake of creating co-dependency (towards Prince Wonja), and subtle insults combined with backhanded compliments and gaslighting (towards Hye Myung).

 

8. "Speechless" (from Aladdin)

 

Okay - this sort of tough/strong female character who fights back against people's underestimation of her is very common all across JW's dramas, giving me almost too many options to pick from. So this time, just because I want to show her some love as a spunky underdog sort of girl, I'm gonna say Kim Do Yeon from Alice: the righteous reporter who's not afraid to speak out against systemic sexism in her profession (i.e. that exposé on sexual harassment that she's been trying to get published), and who's willing to speak up and give Jin Gyeom the scolding he (more often than not) deserves :) 

 

Finally, check out this super-cute fanart :) lol - I love seeing anime-style takes on JW, for some reason. And can we talk about what Kim Tae Hyun's doing with Park Si On over there?

So, JW just had his first appearance in this new run for Ghost, which means tons of goodies for us :) 

 

JW's own announcement on Instagram - I don't know why he looks so freaked out in the first shot (given that he's probably actually quite confident in the role ;)), but it's still funny to see his expressions here

Wow! Musical live performance seems to be fun watch, I never heard of it before I came to know that Joo won was a musical actor. With all that live music and live performance of the artists, it feels like it is better than a drama. I read in an article that Musical in Korea is as big as Dramas and K-pop, but I thought they were like thing in the past, I think musical still attracts sizeable number of fans both from older and younger generations.

I think that musical theatre comes and goes in terms of popularity - it's one of those "you either like it or you don't" sorts of things. Personally, I liked it for as long as I could remember, because my family did as well, so I grew up listening to the music (hence my challenges on this forum ;)). However, I didn't know that they were so popular in Korea specifically until I started to realize just how many actors I liked had at least some experience in musicals.

Korean actors playing characters in high school - It's funny that the main thing that JW's stylists do to turn him into a teenager is brush down his bangs. They did the same for Fashion King, too - but honestly, do you guys think it works? :lol:

Lol! Kim Hee Seon looks very small when she is close to Joo won or rather Joo won is huge when we compare other female characters. And also, about the comment by joo won regarding Kim Hee Seo, he is all praise for her. I guess he really enjoyed working with her. For that matter he also praised Kim Tae Hee like this when he was working on Yong Pal.:blush:

It's funny that the main thing that JW's stylists do to turn him into a teenager is brush down his bangs. They did the same for Fashion King, too - but honestly, do you guys think it works? 

No, It really doesn't work in certain angles, like in few he does look like a student but most of the times it is hard to believe that he is a student

Wow! Musical live performance seems to be fun watch, I never heard of it before I came to know that Joo won was a musical actor. With all that live music and live performance of the artists, it feels like it is better than a drama. I read in an article that Musical in Korea is as big as Dramas and K-pop, but I thought they were like thing in the past, I think musical still attracts sizeable number of fans both from older and younger generations.

In Korea, the musical scene is quite different. In recent years, the scene has not only gotten bigger, the shows they do are also very different from the shows on the West End and Broadway. 

 

The Korean musical scene is extremely creative with their original shows. One of the more famous works for these past 2 years has been Ben Hur the musical.

 

They do shows like Aida, Chicago and Les Mis, which are considered to be the staples of every musical scene.

 

But, then they also have shows like 'A better tomorrow,' 'Anna Karenina.'

I can see that, they use technology a lot in their shows, I think the Ghost from western is different from Korean version not only in terms of actors and language but also, they sort of used some kind of light technology to create an illusion. So, I figured that Korean Musical is a big thing not only in Korea but also in west

Yea! Korean musicals use a lot of technology. Their special effects are on another level. 

 

The Korean musical scene is slowly getting more known to audiences around the world thanks to the technology used.

That seems to be a thing with KDramas. I watched one where the actors current age was at least in their early 60's and yet with a flashback to their youth, all that was done was to give them a hairstyle from that decade. It looked hilarious.
