Shim Eun-kyung off to study abroad in the States

by javabeans dramabeans.com


One of Korea’s brightest up-and-coming actors, 15-year-old Shim Eun-kyung, has announced her plans to move to the U.S. to study in Pittsburgh come the new school year in September.

She says that the decision was made last year. She had intended on going earlier, but after receiving the script for the upcoming drama Bad Guy, she decided to act in that first. Shim explained, “I chose a place where there aren’t a lot of Korean people and decided on a high school in Pittsburgh. Studying is a goal, but I also chose this because I’ve also grown tired mentally and physically after having acted since a young age.”

She added that she would decide after graduating from high school whether to continue on to college or whether to return to the industry and make an acting comeback.


Shim in Hwang Jini, Legend, Merchant Kim Man-deok

Shim Eun-kyung made her debut at age 9 in MBC’s 2004 drama The Woman Who Wants To Marry (playing the childhood version of Myung Se-bin’s character), and has since gone on to make a splash in numerous dramas like historical series Hwang Jini (as young Ha Ji-won), Legend (as young Lee Jia), and most recently Merchant Kim Man-deok (as young Lee Mi-yeon). She has also had roles in a number of modern projects, like MBC’s sitcom Tae-hee, Hye-gyo, Ji-hyun and horror movies Possessed and Hansel and Gretel.

I’m a little sad at the news because Shim is one of the most promising young actors around, and her departure is the industry’s loss. Were she to stay in Korea she could probably have a career like Moon Geun-young (and she was the most likely to take on Moon’s mantle of Korea’s next Little Sister). But it sounds like she’s got a sound head on her shoulders and I respect her decision to get away from the industry, which no doubt puts a tremendous amount of pressure and attention on its young stars (hence her desire to pick a spot with few Koreans, where she can be relatively anonymous).

Shim has a few more upcoming projects that will release before she leaves Korea: the movie Quiz King starring Kim Su-ro and Han Jae-seok; movie Happy Killers with Kim Dong-wook; and SBS’s Bad Guy.

Sunny Sim Eun-kyeong in "Masquerade" with Lee Byeong-heon and Ryoo Seung-ryongSource: Nate via hancinema.net

Well known for her dialect cussing in the movie "Sunny - 2010" from last year, Sim Eun-kyeong is standing side by side with Lee Byeong-Heon, Ryoo Seung-yong, Han Hyo-joo and other big stars.
Sim Eun-kyeong takes on the role of Sa-wol, a palace maid who was separated from her family when she was young and sold to the palace at a young age. Sa-wol treats Ha-seon (Lee Byeong-Heon) who is in place instead of Gwang-hae (Lee Byeong-Heon) with care and warmth and keeps his secret. She is also one of the important characters that help him voice out as king.
Sim Eun-kyeong said, "I wanted to try out this role more because of the interesting scenario. I was attracted to the purity of the character. I hope I can learn a lot from the senior actresses and actors in this drama and mature to be like them".
Her performances is to be expected amongst Lee Byeong-Heon who is attempting at a historical for the first time, Ryoo Seung-yong who takes on the role of Heo Gyun and Han Hyo-joo who just can't get enough.

Korean film industry heading to a new peak year
Source: The Korea Times
The party continues for Korean movies as they head toward a new peak year with a series of box-office records.
The historical film "Gwanghae: the Man Who Became the King" starring "hallyu" star Lee Byung-hun surpassed the 10 million viewer mark Saturday, becoming the second local film this year to break that milestone. 
Hallyu, or the Korean wave, refers to the popularity of Korean TV dramas, pop music and films abroad.
It is the first time two South Korean films have broken the 10 million audience member mark in their opening year. In Korea, films drawing 3 to 4 million movie-goers are considered a box-office success. Only five other local films have ever passed the 10 million mark.
"The Thieves," a heist movie about 10 Korean and Chinese thieves who plot to steal a diamond from a Macao casino, set a new all-time record earlier this month, drawing an audience of more than 13 million viewers.
Other leaders at the box office this year have been "Dancing Queen" (4.09 million), "Nameless Gangster" (4.68 million), "All About My Wife" (4.58 million), "Architecture 101" (4.1 million), "Deranged" (4.51 million) and "The Grand Heist" (4.91 million).
With those box-office hits, the local film industry is leaping toward another peak year, following 2006 when "The Host" by director Bong Joon-ho set the previous audience record.
After peaking at 60.4 percent in 2006 on the strength of "The Host," the audience occupancy rate of Korean films fell to 42.1 percent in 2008. The audience occupancy rate is the proportion of total audience members for all movies shown here.
The heyday of Korean films was widely anticipated to return the following year with the simultaneous success of "Haeundae" (11.45 million viewers) and "Take Off" (8.48 million viewers). 
The yearly occupancy rate remained at a modest 48.8 percent, however, as Hollywood blockbuster "Avatar" dominated theaters at the end of the year. In 2010, the share declined again to 46.5 percent, making it one of the worst years for local movie sales. 
The local film industry began to recover last year when "War of the Arrows" and "Sunny" made waves, attracting more than 7 million viewers each. Their box-office successes were followed by the popularity of such socially influential films as "Silenced" and "Wandeuk/Punch," both of which sold nearly 5 million tickets.
The success of this year's crop of Korean films is prompting the growth of the local movie market and the market share of Korean films jumped to 70.2 percent in August.
According to the official box-office tracker, the Korean Film Commission, 153 million tickets were sold by local cinemas as of late October, coming near to last year's tally of 159.7 million.
The commission expects the 2012 tally to reach some 180 million by year-end, up 12.6 percent from a year earlier, and the number of viewers of South Korean films to top 100 million.
The success of "Gwanghae" came even though it opened in September, normally an off-season for cinemas, setting a precedent that a well-made film can draw a big audience regardless of when it opens. 
Few films that opened in September have been hits at the Korean box-office, with other exceptions thus far being "The War Of Flower" (6.84 million) and "Silenced" (4.66 million).

S. Korean film Gwanghae surpasses 10 million viewers
SEOUL, Oct. 20 (Yonhap) -- The Korean historical film "Gwanghae: the Man Who Became the King" surpassed the 10 million mark in attendance, the film's distributor said Saturday.
   The film reached 10,000,248 viewers as of 8 p.m. Saturday, according to CJ Entertainment. Only six other local films have so far reached the mark.
   "Gwanghae," directed by Choo Chang-min and starring Lee Byung-hun, reached the milestone in 38 days.
   It is the second local film to draw more than 10 million fans in 2012 after "The Thieves," which broke the all-time attendance record earlier this month.
   Lee plays dual roles as King Gwanghae, the 15th ruler of Korea's last kingdom, the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), and the humble acrobat Ha-sun, who stands in for the monarch when he faces the threat of being poisoned.
   Gwanghae was dethroned in a coup and failed to earn a temple name.

NISI20121026_0007235869_web.jpgSource: Nate
Following in the long tradition of lavish Asian epics, this new South Korean entry is a beautiful addition to the genre of period prince-and-the pauper themed films. Reminiscent of the Kevin Klein starrer “Dave,” but set four centuries ago, the story is inspired by 15 days worth of lost pages in the royal annals (compare: the missing White House Nixon 18½-minutes) during the reign of the 15th Joseon king, the tyrannical Gwanghae. Apparently the ancient omission had a parchment Post-It translated as “Matters that need be concealed shall not be recorded in the daily government gazette.” Screenwriter Hwang Jo-Yoon takes this lost entry and spins a fortnight’s tale of switched identities with a blend of humor, treachery, pathos, and compassion amid the regal setting and palace-appropriate wardrobe. The production and costume design is as gorgeous as you would expect.
Korean super-star Lee Byung-hun (“G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” as well the the local hits “I Saw the Devil” and “A Bittersweet Life”) portrays the evil despot and the blue-collar, off-color village performer Ha-Seon, hired for a handful of gold coins to impersonate the ruler, who is afraid of the treasonous compatriots in his entourage. No sooner can you say “why is my silver spoon turning black,” then the king is in a poisonous coma and whisked away for recovery, while the monarch’s chief secretary Heo Gyun (Ryoo Seung-yong) and Chief Eunuch Jo (Jang Gwang), initially the only advisors aware of the switch, begin teaching the pretender to the throne the rules of the game.
The lowly buffoon’s 3-day stint is soon extended indefinitely. The comical talents of Byung-hun allow for a pleasant contrast against the treachery afoot from the leader of the opposition and courtiers Park Chung-seo (Kim Myung-gon). The timbre and cadence of the actor’s voice allows for a believable change in character, although as Ha-Seon grows into his most demanding role, he brings a confidence that could make it hard for those in the audience to differentiate the two. That plays an important part in the film’s climax.
“Masquerade” is not a full-fledged comedy, as there is a serious, even deadly side to this tale, which directer Choo Chang-min handles adroitly. Heo Gyun, as expected in this kind of tale, turns the tables on his handlers, which allows for a variety of deception-bashing situations as well as personal engagements with his lowly staff, including the 15-year food taster Sa-wol (teen star Shim Eun-kyung in an extremely effective portrayal) and the royal bodyguard Captain Do (Kim In-kwon). Several of these new acquaintances (from Ha-Seon’s POV, not theirs, as they just think the king has flipped a little) provide heart-rending moments of personal sacrifice to defend the turned-on-the-kingdom’s-head antics to bring a balanced and fair system of taxation to the kingdom.
But before those late-in-the-film heroics, the concubines seem rather amused by the “king”‘s pent-up bowel movement (he was afraid to ask for directions to the regal “throne”), so he ends up releasing himself abruptly on the plum blossom pot in full view of his obedient women servants. Their congratulations on his poo performance does not hide their curiosity that the royal scent smells somewhat different. There’s also the chance that someone might find the arrow-shaped scar missing from the impostor’s chest, especially the queen consort (the lovely Han Hyo-joo), a relationship that involves peril, romance, and comedy in equal doses.
“Masquerade” is already one the biggest Korean hits ever; it has topped the box office for six consecutive weeks (and just passed 10 million tickets sold) since its release in its home market on September 13, 2012. It has just started its U.S. roll out; perfect timing for the shenanigans afoot in our national plebiscite, and Korea’s political elections in December.

Shim Eun-kyung returns to the big screen in body-swap comedy
by girlfriday dramabeans.com
Okay, this movie sounds adorable. Rising young actress Shim Eun-kyung (Sunny) has picked her next project, and it’s a movie in which she plays a grandma who gets zapped back into her teenage body… and then joins a rock band. Why? I dunno. But coolest granny ever.

The movie, called Suspicious Girl, is the next project from the director of The Crucible (talk about varying your genres, though I can certainly understand wanting to direct a light comedy after such a heavy project). It stars Shim Eun-kyung as a grandma who wakes up one day in her younger body, which you figure is actually a body-swap AND time-traveling genre mashup, what with the generation gap. We’ve certainly had a lot of each kind in dramaland over the past year, but a twofer could be a fun twist.
It’s really the granny in the rock band that sells the premise, because it’s just crazy enough to be awesome. And Shim Eun-kyung is so great at quirky oddball characters. She’s even played a grandma who regained her youth while in heaven in Jun Jin’s Romantic Heaven, so the granny act isn’t even a stretch.
I hope they do a romance too, because not only will watching granny get herself a flower boy rocker be hilarious, but I think there’s be a great bittersweet story to be told there. Now that’s a noona romance that I could get behind.
Suspicious Girl is still casting and plans to release later this year.

2013 Korean Film Festival: New Wave of Korean Cinema

Source: Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines
Korean Film Festival to feature contemporary trends in Korean cinema Banking on the strength of the Korean Wave in the Philippines, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines will be featuring six popular Korean films in the 2013 Korean Film Festival slated to be held from September 18 to October 10 in Manila, Iloilo, Cebu and Davao. The film festival will kick off in SM Megamall and will run from September 18 to 22, to be followed by the SM Iloilo run from September 26 to 29. From October 3 to 6, the film festival will move to SM Cebu and will have its final run on October 10 to 13 at SM Lanang in Davao.
The films to be screened are Green Days (소중한 날의 꿈), Masquerade (광해, 왕이 된 남자), Sunny (써니), A Werewolf Boy (늑대소년), Deranged (연가시), and Dancing Queen (댄싱퀸). The animated film Green Days (소중한 날의 꿈), voiced by actors PARK Shin-hye, SONG Chang-eui and OH Yeon-soo, is a coming-of-age story of Yi-Rang, a track runner, Soo-Min, a pretty transfer student from Seoul and Chul-soo, as they work towards their dreams. Topbilling the period film Masquerade (광해, 왕이 된 남자) are LEE Byung-hun of the G.I Joe fame and HAN Hyo-joo as their respective characters tackle the intricacies of court life during the Joseon dynasty. In a turn of events, King Gwang-hae was poisoned and a court jester who looks remarkably like the king, Ha-sun, fills in the role of the king until the true king recovers fully. Ha-sun’s vastly different personality incites change in the morale among the people in the castle for the better. Third in the roster is the critically-acclaimed film Sunny (써니) that retells the story of seven girls whose friendship stretches far back in high school through the journey of Na-mi, one of the seven girls. Chun-hwa, one of the girls, is presently terminally ill and asks Na-mi to get together the old members of Sunny for the last time before she dies. Popular actors SONG Joong-ki and PARK Bo-young grace the fantasy-romance flick A Werewolf Boy (늑대소년) about the young “wolf boy” and a girl who had just moved to the small rural village as these two strangers find affection from each other against a cold world that shuns them both. In Deranged (연가시), panic grows across the country as an epidemic of suicides occur where the victims jump into the river. The alarmed government declares a state of emergency. Medical supplies salesman Jae-hyuk suspects his family is showing symptoms of the drowning victims and through his brother, Detective Jae-pil, they search for the antidote to such. In Dancing Queen (댄싱퀸) the wife of the Seoul mayoral candidate was a Dancing Queen, formerly a popular talent whose chase for her dreams came to an abrupt stop when her husband, Jung-min, decided to run for office. The movie goes through the journey of Jung-hwa as she balances her life as a wife of a political candidate and as a leader of the Dancing Queen. The 2013 Korean Film Festival is in cooperation with the Korean Film Council (KOFIC), the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the Korea Tourism Organization – Manila (KTO), the Korea Copyright Commission, SM Cinema, SM Cinema Megamall, SM Cinema Lanang and LG.

Age meets youth with comedy ‘Miss Granny’
By BAEK HEE-YOUN Korea JoongAng Daily

Shim Eun-gyung, center, plays Mal-soon, a grandmother who gets a second shot at youth in “Miss Granny.” Provided by CJ Entertainment
Actress Na Mun-hee, 72, and Shim Eun-gyung, 20, will star as a single character in “Miss Granny,” scheduled to open Jan. 1. 
Mal-soon is a 70-year-old grandmother whose biggest talent lies in swearing. One day she gets shocked when she finds out that her family is planning to send her to a sanatorium. 
Resigned to her fate, Mal-soon goes to a photo studio to take a picture for her funeral, but then something amazing happens - she miraculously finds herself back in her body from her 20s. Once she gets used to the changes, Mal-soon decides to enjoy her second go-around at youth.
Both actresses bring their own unique style to Mal-soon. Shim in particular, who showed how good she can be in the film “Sunny” in 2011, is dynamite. 
Moreover, other actors such as Hwang Jung-min, Sung Dong-il and Lee Jin-wook bring a lot of energy to the story.
Even before its release, the film has garnered much attention, hitting a million hits for its trailer online. 
Following the success of stories that weave in and out of the past and present, such as the movie “Sunny” and the TV shows “Respond 1997” and “Respond 1994,” many predict “Miss Granny” could be a bit hit.
