Lee Jong Suk 이종석 ||Unreleased C-Drama - Jade Lover ||Upcoming Movie - The Witch: Part 2 || Upcoming Movie - Decibel


Recommended Posts

Well, that was a very sad ending to a very sad little drama. I don't actually like sad endings, or tragedies (I want to see people overcome weaknesses instead of falling to them, and I don't like adultery and suicide, I'll say that straight out). But I think the value in tragic stories, after thinking about it for some time, is that it helps you be more compassionate to people who are making poor choices. Because you can see all of the factors that go into it. The situations where they feel trapped, and the words and actions other people take which negatively influence them. It makes me want to be more gentle with other people. Even though my Korean knowledge is not perfect and I could only partly understand the non-subbed drama, I felt so bad for poor Woo Jin, who was controlled by his non-understanding father and also by a controlling government. My gosh, Jongsuk can act! I know that of course he is famous for um, being the higop king, etc. But you know, he also has a history of playing characters who struggle with father figures who let him down. The uncle in IHYV...the older brother in Pinocchio...the awful parents in No Breathing...his artist creator in W...now his father in HoD who doesn't approve of the writing thing... That one line in his conversation with his father really hit hard: 저 사람합니아, 아버지!/ I am a PERSON, Father! -- was just ripped right out of his heart. I feel like he gives voice to a lot of people who just want to be seen as their own person, who want their actual abilities noticed and respected, and who want a good relationship with a parent figure but don't currently have one, because that person is blind to who they really are. 

 

Considering the subject matter, I feel that the pd handled it quite sensitively for a public tv audience, too. Well done, everyone who worked on that drama. And to Jong Suk ssi, who wants to become an "irreplaceable actor"--you're already there.

I totally agree with your thoughts @frozentundra
I feel so bad for them.
They were slaves of their families who selfishly put their desires and benefits above the happiness of their children. 

 


And as for the performance of Jongsuk, it's just amazing! I applaud her performance energetically.

'Fallin in love' is a song of a pop ballad genre that sings a fateful love that is so intense that it can not be denied.
It starts with a whispering vocal, slowly raises the sentiment line, and explodes the feelings of love in the chorus. The orchestra sound is added to the beautiful yet sad piano melody, and the rich and magnificent music is completed.

Thanks @ibru for the 100th anniversary "The life of Kim Woo-jin, a genius playwright" feature documentary  - interesting !  100 years !  Wow!

 

And to @frozentundra - well said!  Was initially apprehensive when I heard about the negative elements that were inevitably unavoidable in the HOD drama because these are pretty sensitive issues.  For the drama to be comprehensible, these factors, including filial piety and being responsible towards parents / ancestry,  propelled the real pair to do the unthinkable -  some would say foolish but who are we to judge, considering the circumstances.   The feelings of loss, despair,  deep anguish and love.


Well, as you said, we need to be kind,  if not, be more tolerant., with our words and actions.  Thanks for the reminder, Frozie.  We don't know how certain words can hurt or heal people.  Everyone we meet has a story to tell.
 
Very well made drama despite the short 3-hour  story-line - smooth flow of plots, neat and easy to understand for non-korean like me.  I hereby salute the PD-nim, writer-nim and crew for their hard work , of course, with the brilliant performance of the actors that bring the drama to life, touching the hearts of many.  Even now my tears flow when I see certain clips coupled with the soulful OST 1 song that is still echoing in my mind.  Have to switch it off , else my parents will wonder why my eyes are red, welling with tears .. haha! 

Well, back to real life - i hope to laugh more at JS's new drama with Lee Na Young.


My heartiest congrats to Jong Suk-ssi and Hye Sun-ssi and HOD production team!

Article: Naver 'He Hymn of Death' Lee Jong Suk  Shin Hye Sun, hug with tears "Let's go to Tokyo together"  

1. [+565,-12]
I like the cinematography that's like a movie~ To be honest, Lee Jong Suk's enthusiastic acting is a pity when it ended. 

2. [+419,-30]
Shin Hye Sun is so pretty, Lee Jong Suk is so handsome. 

3. [+341,-12]
Lee Jong Suk's sorrowful expression.. ㅠㅠ He did so well. ㅠㅠ 

4. [+107,-3]
Both families disgusts me. They made it so that Shim Deok and Woo Jin had no choice but to run away. 

5. [+85,-1]
She wants to rest... I tear up whenever I watch how tired Shim Deok is...

6. [+75,-2]
I'm surprised that Lee Jong Suk suits all kinds of dramas. His acting and narrations are insane.. ♥

7. [+66,-1]
Lee Jong Suk is really charismatic. Why is he so good at acting... 

8. [+68,-7]
Shin Hye Sun's clothes are pretty. I think even if they are worn in the present times, it's good too.

Naver 'He Hymn of Death' "Choosing death for life" Lee Jong Suk  Shin Hye Sun, a passionate 'sad ending' 

1. [+1354,-45]
As an actor, it's important to have good pronunciation and vocalization~ And control one's strengths and weaknesses when acting emotionally. I think Lee Jong Suk really did well.. It was short, but he has shown great acting skills!! 
2. [+1068,-21]
Really, it must've been really difficult to act in this one.. Especially the roles Lee Jong Suk and Shin Hye Sun took on. Everyone has worked hard. And, thank you for creating such a good drama. It would be good if the two are happy in He Hymn of Death..  

3. [+814,-13]
"Are you alive? No. But I want death. In order to truly live."   

4. [+526,-12]
A drama that leaves a deep impression on me... 

5. [+506,-11]
It's such a pity for the talented people to throw themselves into the sea. This sheds a new light on the topic of death that is questionable in this generation. 

6. [+178,-10]
Isn't Lee Jong Suk really good at acting? He's good in modern and period dramas. Firstly, his acting and vocalizations are good. 

7. [+117,-1]
To think that a period drama can be so emotional..... I think I'm going to have lingering images of this for a long time. 

8. [+117,-8]
Ah, the lingering images are insane... This drama has the best ending among all dramas I've watched recently.. They're acting geniuses.. Lee Jong Suk and Shin Hye Sun, as expected, I could believe in them and watch their dramas.

Lee Jong Suk 'He Hymn Of Death', No Guarantee, 'Popular + Meaning'

Actor Lee Jong Suk was acknowledged as a irreplaceable actor for his role in the 'He Hymn Of Death', that captured all the popularity and significance. It became an example by making a sense of responsibility as the top class actor free of casting fee, and proved the profound acting skill in the first period drama and took over to hard filmography...

You should really read this article. Especially when you consider how critical critics and knetz can be, this is praise that holds nothing back. Here's a summary of the key points: 

 

I love it that he got to read Kim Woo Jin's poetry. He must have loved that.

 

And my gosh, yes, his voice acting is wonderful!
