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.

You know that Tomorrow Cantabile filmed the last episode first, right? 

Stupid Production should have just cut it. That's why it was so jarring after the beautiful ep 15.

I didn't know anything about NC. I had A levels when it was airing so I didn't watch. Then I read that reviews are not good so I didn't touch. I need to cure YP withdrawal so I'm finally watching it.It is beautiful drama,sweet and lovely but the ending,I am approaching ending and unhappy that NL kept running away!

@mrdimples  I was trying to say that I started Baker King, then dropped it, so that's why I haven't actually seen all his dramas.  I've watched everything else entirely though.  And I'm looking forward to finishing Cantabile soon. The K-version is much different than the J-version!!  :) 
 

Edited to say: That gif is awesome by the way, both for the eyebrow action from Ma Jun and the girl's horrified face. LOL.  Speaking of which!   I kind of miss JooWon's eyebrows.  He doesn't use them nearly as much as he did in Gaksital.  ^_^

"You can't just disqualify her just for a wrong spelling!" JW said that in English!

Not like other actors who said in mono tone. He used intonation! OPPA AH! Why you didn't speak English in SG? I will die on spot if you did...

Oddly I was fine with the noble idiocy in Yongpal. I thought that the plot made sense where they needed to cool off in their little corners. Hey with people dropping dead left, right and center they need time to evaluate their values in life LOL

I wasn't very invested in the romance in NC which actually ruined my watching experience. I cared for Joowon's character and was rooting for him to find his place as a conductor and his discovery in music but I couldn't care less about whether he ended up with Shim Eun Kyung. In my opinion, they were not a good match. (Comparing this to the Taiwanese drama It Started With A Kiss has a similar setup where we have a candy girl crushing on a guy who is so out of her league but I loved her crazy character. Naeil didn't do it for me.)(Sorry if this is an unpopular opinion here)

As for Baker King... OMG should I watch it? I'm scared of the makjang.... But I need to right? For the love of Joowon? Maybe OB too... even though I don't like Uee?

@wildaffairs thank you for the chinese subs link for Healing Camp. Unfortunately, I can't get it to open. If anyone finds a youtube link or some 'friendlier' site let me know! Until then I will never give up trying to get this tudou link to work...

Suffice it to say that Cutie's english is not cringe-worthy as some of the actors his age. I still believe he can more or less understand English (he loved The Notebook remember? Unless what he watched was subbed) but does not practice speaking as much. I wish he would do so because his pronunciation is pretty much ok and so that I can understand him without needing for translations. Hahahaha! Imagine talking to him in your limited Korean, then him replying in Korean, then you trying to process what he said while you are trying to just breathe 'coz you're starstrucked/lovestrucked because of his presence (#truestory). 

 

By the way, will we be doing something for That Guy premiere? Like a rice wreath or cake or something?

You gotta at least try Baker King!  It wasn't terrible, I just really couldn't get into it, despite the JooWon (and everyone else really selling their roles). 

Aww you don't like Uee??  Why?  She's pretty good, especially since she was a new actress in OB.  And there's more to OB than just UEE's character anyway.  Try watching!! :D

Korean actor Joo Won confesses his ideal woman, dating history

The Korea Herald/ANN | Lim Jeong-yeo | Wednesday, Oct 14, 2015
 

Joo Won, the male lead of recently culminated SBS TV drama "Yong-pal," appeared in Monday night's "Healing Camp-500 vs. 1" and discussed his relationship history and philosophy.

The 28-year-old said he has had bad luck with relationships due to personal difficulties in work-love balance.

"I have only really dated twice. When I'm working for a show, I become conflicted.

The person I like and the female lead of the show pose a psychological tug-of-war in my head," Joo Won explained.

"I like the movie 'Notebook.' It's the kind of authentic melodrama I want to act in. A love where both sides are helplessly infatuated," the actor said.

His ideal woman is one who has "a pretty backline and a pot belly with big heart." If he falls in love he would commit a hundred per cent, "When I fall in love I stay in love. I think true affection comes from never thinking about leaving each other," he said.

In this episode of "Healing Camp," Joo won sang a verse from musical "Don Quixote," showing off his musical skills.

Joo Won Compliments His 'Yong Pal' Co-Star Kim Tae Hee

BY JULIE JONES

Joo Won has always been very supportive of his "Yong Pal" co-star Kim Tae Hee.

At the press conference for the medical melodrama he spoke about how excited he had been to work with her and how he was not disappointed when he did.

"I think I fell for noona more at the first script reading. I thought, 'how could someone with her looks also have such a good personality?' There's beauty in personality as well. The more I see her, the prettier I think she is and I think I will have fun working with her."

On The SBS program "Healing Camp," healso spoke about his first impressions, "On our first script reading day, I came to think that she was not called Pretty Tae Hee for no reason."

When Kim received criticism for her acting in the earlier episodes, he defended her, saying that her acting was heartfelt.

"Kim Tae Hee is trying hard to show a different side of herself than she did in the past," he said. "You can say that she is completely absorbed in her new character Han Yeo Jin. She's trying to let herself go and act as naturally as possible."

He comforted her when she was criticized and the couple became good friends. Despite the criticism, Kim Tae Hee went on to win the Top Excellence Award for Best Actress at the 2015 Korea Drama Awards.

Joo Won has a history of being kind to and complimentary towards his female co-stars, praising Choi Kang Hee, Moon Chae Won and Jin Se Yeon, but if he had to pick the best it would be Kim Tae Hee. When the "Healing Camp" host asked him which actress was his favorite, she won.

"I wondered how she could be so pure like that when she had been in the entertainment business for such a long time," he said. "Also, she was a good actress who created the feelings that allowed me to love Yeo Jin."

The feeling was apparently mutual. Kim said she got very close to him during the filming.

"I got closer to him to the point I could say that I can't get any closer. Among all the actors I've worked with, I got the closest to him and was able to communicate with him the best."

In fact, Kim would like to have a son just like Joo Won.

"He's very masculine when he's acting but he often uses sweet babying words. It was to the point where I thought it'd be nice to have a son like him. The women around him melt when confronted with Joo Won's charms."

苦熬5年成韓流天王 周元:演戲是唯一出口
2015/10/12 20:01

phpXl35ZL.jpg周元透露出道前後心酸經歷,讓許多人忍不住落淚。(翻攝自asiae.co)

〔娛樂頻道/綜合報導〕韓星周元剛出道時有「小姜東元」的稱號,近期他憑藉《龍八夷》站上韓流戲劇小天王的地位,日前他作客《Healing Camp》時透露,出道以來背負很大壓力,儘管他靠實力成功了,但想到一路走來的心酸,忍不住紅了眼眶,讓觀眾非常心疼。

phpAHnd2c.jpg周元在《龍八夷》中精湛的演技,讓人印象深刻。(翻攝自asiae.co)

周元在節目上表示,人生中最叛逆的時候,就是跟父母說要上藝術高中、要當演員,當時父母很驚嚇,但他後來用演藝成績向父母證明自己做了正確的決定。

他也回憶,剛出道時他非常沮喪,不管再怎麼努力演戲,還是很少人關注他,不過他沒有放棄,除了電視劇,他也朝電影、音樂劇發展。經過了5年,他參與演出的作品都獲得票房與口碑的雙保證,讓他成為「韓劇收視率新4大天王」,他目眶含淚的說,從小就不擅言詞和表達情緒,「演戲是我唯一的出口」,讓許多觀眾很是心疼,忍不住落淚。

@mrdimples, will need translation expertise for this article. Also, there is another Chinese article that I found interested (http://www.epochtimes.com/gb/15/9/21/n4532022.htm). Its about the different educational methods used in Naeil's Cantabile.

Joowon speaks English~ He actually has good pronunciation when he speaks English. Like a natural~ But he just rarely speak it.

Can't really tell if he speaks English fluently - are there other clips of him interacting in or speaking a greater length of text in English? But just from this little bit, he does seem to have a "neutral" English accent, i.e. not heavily Korean accented. Nice. :)

His character speaks a tiny bit of English in OB too. 

And he spent some time in the US as a kid, didn't he?  Only like 6 months or something, but it might have helped him learn good habits.

 

@gilaswan  Hmm.  To put it nicely, the story just didn't draw me in and make want to continue watching.  It felt a little too much like the plot of the soap operas my mother used to watch when I was a child.  Days of Our Lives, General Hospital that sort of thing. 

Ha.  And that might be why I liked it.  It is very much a soap opera. I used to watch Days of Our Lives with my sister (who was older, bigger, and therefore controlled the remote, lol) when I was a kid, and we mocked its ridiculousness mercilessly, while still being totally addicted to it.  And I was totally enjoying Baker King on that level until I realized that I was actually kind of invested in Ma Jun's story.  Hahaha.  First encounter with Joo Won, and that's all it took.  Luckily OB was airing at the time, so I had something else to binge on right away.

So the takeaway is that you just have to embrace the crazy!  But I can understand that not everyone wants to watch something so completely nuts.  I always said that Ma Jun has the problems that make sense in a more real-world way.  Parents that treat him badly and misunderstand him, but in a mostly ordinary way, and a kind of coming-of-age identity crisis.  Not like stupid Tak Gu, with his completely insane (kidnapped mom, near-blindness, near loss of taste, on and on) issues. 

Ah, Ma Jun.  I always say this, but it's all your fault I'm here!

There's a new Mountia ad of Cutie and I hope someone could post it here. It's in Mountia's FB page:

https://mobile.facebook.com/mountiakr

I can't embed videos or copy its link (using my phone). So, maybe someone could do so? Also, will there be a Mountia fanmeet/fansigning event @farbarri

So many articles just on one guesting. So we have:

1. Joo Won's ideal girl

2. His dating history

3. His aegyo

4. His use of banmal

5. Difficulties in filming Yongpal

6. His seniors' views about him

7. Kim Tae Hee

8. His singing prowess

What else do we have?

This is why I said he sounds natural or neutral. Because he speaks with intonation as opposed to memorizing lines. He actually understood what he said. Gosh, he sounds so good speaking English.

*will watch the English part when I'm at home~ Just got to the office!*

Morning/Evening everyone! *hugs*

Haha! I should take the plunge. All it takes is probably 5 episodes to get hooked right? Rofl.

There is something about Uee I find hard to like.

When I saw her in You're Beautiful naturally she was a villian so there wasn't much to like but I actually didn't remember her being in there. I saw a few other of her dramas too -- most recently Hogu's Love and the one with Sung Joon, Park Hyung Sik and Im Ji Yeon (forgot what show that is called). I felt that I wasn't emotionally connected to her scenes and sometimes I don't understand what she is trying to convey... Both her thoughts and emotions. You know how someone here mentioned Joowon's twitching eyebrows and slight shift in his stare when he placed his hand on Yeojin's tummy and we know uh-oh something bad is happening? Yeah pretty much I don't get that with Uee. And there's something about her eyes in that drama with Sung Joon (sorry forgot name)... Is she wearing circle lenses? Sometimes she looks really expressionless...

So I guess you can say I won't be too excited seeing my favourite actor romancing one of my not-so-favourite actress (heh trying to keep it civil) on screen. And they are so lovey dovey together... I've seen episode cuts so I have seen bits of the show.

(OMG does this mean that I'll be one of those annoying anti-fans when he dates someone I don't like? Hahaha! Nah, I'm not going to be childish. I can be opinionated but I shouldn't be unreasonable.)

Yes @moonandhearts there will be a Mountia fansign on October 17th. I dont know the details much, just saw on his schedule. I will just wait for fancams. :D Missing him so much already!

And there will also be a ship cruise with (Japanese?) fans, not sure which date. If it was me, I will skip the cruise. I get seasick~ How can Joowon go on the cruise? He gets seasick easily. All the time on 1N2D that they go out to sea.

3b87e950352ac65cf8162bd6fbf2b21193138a00

Or maybe I should go on the cruise if it means Joowon will snuggle into people like this when he's seasick... *thinking hard*

@ctfrsgp We are translating and subbing the Healing Camp show. So I will focus on that. 

Chinese - English translations are being done on Yong Pal BTS videos to take load off our Korean - English translators. 

There are some Chinese vids and articles which are nice to share. 

Anyone who is interested to translate Chinese to English, please PM me.

What? On a cruise with Joowon? Trapped on a ship where he has no way to escape... Ooh... I want to be there.

Snuggly Joowon is cute. Like how he snuggled up to Jong Min and called him "yeobo" when he was seasick... Maybe he'll fall asleep on top of you too like how he did with Kim Seung Woo... Somebody write a fanfic.
