why does it feel like celebration for JW-JSY shippers?
Joo Won: Bridal Mask To Me Was Also A Risky Project
“Gaksital will never forgive you!” “Mom**Biong!”
Possessing two types of charm, Joo Won entered the hearts of the viewers. In KBS’ Bridal Mask, as the national hero, he displayed charisma, in variery show Happy Sunday – 1N2D killing people with his shy smile and aegyo, he has firmly captured the hearts of fans.
Debuting in 2010 Baker King, in a span of 2 years, he climbed to the top. Acting in weekend drama Ojakgyo Brothers and the latest drama that just ended – Bridal Mask and also the currently airing national variety show 1N2D, he has become the Star of this era. I wanted to meet with the national hero, the son of the nation and the national star Joo Won. 185cm tall, face the size of a palm with exquisite features, he looks just like a matured youth. eNews sees Joo Won’s honesty and sincerity.
After the drama finished, how have you been spending your time?
“Now, I still feel very empty. Recently, I have been attending interviews, fan meetings and autograph events.”
Do you feel your popularity?
“When I am out, I am not too sure. But at the autograph session, I felt it. About 3,000 people came, it was then that I felt loved by so many people. Previously, my fans are mostly in their 20s. Now, there many children, junior, middle and high school students, it’s like I have become an idol(laughs). Little kids will shout “Gaksital!”(laughs).
This drama and those previous ones, all had very good ratings.
"Ratings Man is a title that makes me feel a little burdened. It was because the script was meaningful, luck was good. I don’t feel that it’s because of me that the drama is good. If its’ like this and the next drama, the ratings are not good(laughs)"
Bridal Mask comparing to other dramas, seems to have more special meaning
“Production company and broadcast station also took the challenge. I too had to take the risk. The most worrisome is not the competing dramas but that I took on the main lead. A massive amount was invested in the project and there were many excellent actors, if it didn’t turn out well, it must be my fault, I will seriously think this way. The stress was no joking matter, so I had to work even harder.”
You worked every hard in preparation, can you give some specific examples?
“Initially, it was difficult to grasp the character. In order to let the audience understand the underlying meaning, in the beginning, the foundation must be done well. So it was very difficult. There were also many Action. In order to be realistic, when fighting martial arts I had to use a lot of strength. Before Kangto wore the bridal mask, I also had to prepare a lot.”
Initially, the casting was difficult?
"Actually a lot of Hallyu stars rejected to take a role in this drama, I also found out after I started production. I simply wanted based my decision on the piece of work and the character. The script was great, the scenes were also spectacular. Kangto is a character who many abilities, yet he was so pitiful, it’s a role that will invoke a lot of sympathy. The piece of work and the character were all very attractive, actually I didn’t think of any other factors."
That’s why you are called the Patriotic Actor
“Although I am very thankful, I cannot say that other actor do no love their country. Every time when I hear this, I will feel the stress and shy about having chosen this piece of work.”
In Bridal Mask, the change in the character was not easy. Between XX and Patriot, the change was very difficult.
“Personally I felt that the time taken to change to become patriotic(Kangto) was too short. Why did he want to wear the Bridal Mask? Why did he want to become a patriot? I put a lot of effort to make it look legitimate. After I wear the Bridal Mask, I also had to hide my identity. To express my grievances, the struggle to live, it was very hard and complex."
Angry scenes must be done in order to leave as strong impression.
"Usually I won’t get angry, all the more I will not lose my temper in front of the camera. The pressure was tremendous. Especially when this type of acting will leave the audience a bit of a burden, it make me agonized. However, if you think too much, you will not be able to grasp the character well. Thus, I was determined not to worry too much about these. I have asked the director, did I over act the angry parts. But he said it doesn’t matter so I also did not care about it and went ahead to express without restrain(laughs)."
The most regrettable part.
“They were many. Important scenes I was very focused. But because I was physically exhausted and I did not sleep well, so there were some scenes where I did not take note of the details. I feel I could have done even better, it was regrettable.”
Crying scenes made the audience cry with you. In actual fact, just love to cry. In Ojakgyo Brothers, tears poured in torrents.
“I didn’t cry well, it seemed a little strang(laughs). When I was supposed to cry I didn’t cry. Like when Shi Yoon got hurt in Baker King, why did I have to cry? (laughs). When I was watching the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” I also cried. Reporter, do you think there were any scenes in that movie that will make people cry?(laughs). Everyone did not cry, only me when I watched the part where the main actor gave up his Golden Ticket for his family member, I cried.”
Older women in their 40s and 50s also love Joo Won
“No matter what, it seems like Baker King and Ojakgyo Brothers left them with an impression. Also in 1N2D, a lot of elders like to watch. But grandpas and grandmas also love 1N2D”
Now there is a feeling of youth.
“I like the sensibility of a child. To put it nicer, being simple is also able to help an actor. If you can demonstrate being like a child, it is also very good. You can say like a clean slate. (laughs)
Compared to Jin Se Yeon who played your love interest, you seemed to have even deeper feelings for Park Ki Woong
“Hyung is a very kind person. The first time I met hyung, we already did ‘skinship’, we also shook hands, it felt a bit imposing. (laughs). In filming the drama, the 2 of us had to stay up every night. I started filming from the 1st March and Hyung started in April. When he saw me, he asked how did I perseverve. Because we could relate to each other, we became very close."
After Bridal Mask filming ended, what changed the most?
“Needless to say, it was acting skills. However, even more important than this is the attitude one must possess as the main actor. In times like this, I really feel that the sunbaes are really fantastic. Even in pain, even when tired, even when sensitive, even when it’s tough, they still control it and exhibit a cheerful side, possessing the ability to lead. Tae Woong Hyung has ever praised me for having the ability to lead. After Bridal Mask was completed, I had a lot of thoughts. I am also determined to do better the next time.”
This time, after the drama finished, you received a lot of CFs.
(Asked the manager) “Did I earn a lot of money?(laughs) Because I earned a lot, I thought of buying a house. Imagine the sun shining in, closing your eyes, how happy I would be(laughs). Although, the house at which I stay with my parents is also good, but I want to buy a 3-storey house. With my parents, me and my hyung, living together like this. Although my sister-in-law won’t like it(laughs)"
1N2D maknae Joo Won vs Bridal Mask Joo Won, which is the real you?
“The real me is 1N2D. I love to aegyo with my hyungs. But with younger brothers and sisters, I am especially good at acting as an adult. (laughs)”
Very good at acting like a child.
“When I was young, my mother always grumbled she had no daughter. I didn’t want to keep hearing this so from young, I will act like a daughter(laughs). Cooking together with mom, washing the dishes, also become closer in this way. But no matter what, a son still cannot be like a daughter(laughs).”
How do you normally relieve stress?
Although there is stress, there is no way to relieve it. I cannot drink, only drink iced coffee(laughs). Just quietly let time take the stress away.
“I like cheerful, kind people. Like a bear. Because I hate calculative(or is it manipulative?) type, once the other party “push and pull” I will immediately break up. A girl like Mok Dan is hard to find. Throughout her life, she only thought of the boy who gave her the knife. In reality, there won’t be such a woman. I like the simple, pure type. Difference in age does not matter. “
Roles that you will like to try
“Till now, all those role that I have acted in are older than my actual age. More serious, sincere characters. Hope to try a character who is sweet, no need to bleed, a character in the 20s.”
The ambition of an actor.
Just like now, being able to learn a lot of things from the work will be good. Growing bit by bit with each acting project, I want to be become a humane actor, not to be too ambitious.

Go Show：Park Ki Woong - How could such a sensitive guy become a convincing villian?In Gaksital, Park Ki Woong acted as the villian who sent creeps down peoples' backs showed his own personal innocent and kind-hearted charisma, a total contrast from his villainous role. Park Ki Woong of Gaksital fame, which recently ended its broadcast on a ratings high, took part in the Go Show which aired on 21 September 2012. Park Ki Woong showed his kind nature and 4 dimension character, which has attracted a lot of attention due to the extreme contrast with Shunji's character. In the broadcast, Park Ki Woong showed no sign of the Shunji who tortured and interrogated many Joseon people. Go Show's "Madam" Go Hyun Jung's assessment of Park Ki Woong was "He seems like a child who just turned a year old."In Gaksital, while wearing the pristine white uniform of the Imperial Japanese police, coupled with neatly combed hair, Park Ki Woong looked like an innocent child who had just turned a year old. She also said that it was due to this that she watched Gaksital and praised this junior for his acting skills. Park Ki Woong, who shrunk his shoulders [what you do when you are embarrassed] towards such praise, was prodded on by the self praising MC Team into stating "If I'm acting the villainous role, I will definitely do well." Aside from Gaksital, Park Ki Woong also acted in the popular drama Chuno and the box office hit, War of Arrows. In all of these productions, Park Ki Woong played the role of the villain. Park Ki Woong expressed his difficulty with the roles and said "If I'm not acting as a villain, the project will end up a disaster." In My Tutor Friend 2, Park Ki Woong took on the lead role and was known for it but the movie was did not do well at the box-office. From his previous works, it also seemed like the commercial success of each paled in comparison to the works in which Park Ki Woong had acted as a villain. Despite seeming more suited acting the villainous role, Park Ki Woong expressed his feelings towards such roles, saying that it was a huge burden. He said honestly "In the history of Korea's dramas, I'm the actor who has been slapped the most by actresses. I feel that getting hit is quite comfortable...I've also done a lot of scene where I torture and interrogate. Water torture, nail box, beating, more often than not I use the whip. I really dislike the look of people in pain so I really respect the seniors who specialise in acting as the bad guy."Upon further interaction, it was evident that Park Ki Woong (who graduated from an arts university) was a man who possessed sensitivity. Praising himself, he said "I am very good at using the pencil to sketch. In the country-wide model examination, I often scored A+ for my pencil sketches. I'm also the top 10 in the entire country." At this moment, Park Ki Woong revealed 2 of his works. One was a drawing of the movie Friends's Jang Dong Gun and Yoo Oh Seung and the other was Yoo Ji Tae. The drawing was the same as the photos and this ability of Park Ki Woong left the MC team gaping. Also, Park Ki Woong expressed his unique fetish for women. "I have a fetish for the head shape of women. When I see a beautiful head shape, I will feel like I am going crazy." These words left everyone dumbfounded. When it was said that while filming for Gaksital, Park Ki Woong grew closer with the actresses, he said "It's because I've touched the heads of all the female actresses." He also picked Han Chae Ah and Sandara Park as his ideal head shapes. That was not all. Park Ki Woong, who bacame famous with his millstone grinding dance, said that his appearance was similar to a tortoise and said "Let me show you the expression of a tortoise when it is eating grass" and proceeded to make an expression that caused everyone to burst out laughing. During the first 5 mins of the opening of the show, Park Ki Woong did interact much with fellow guests Noh Sa Yeon and Lee Seung Mi but as the night went by, he gradually got a long well with the other guests. When quarrelling, Park Ki Woong is still able to point out all the issues rationally and because of this, he said with some dejection "When a girl quarrels with me, she will end up going home without saying anything and it seems that it's because everything I've said is correct and there's nothing for her to say." To this, Lee Seung Mi did an on the spot performance acting as his girlfriend. The scenario was that she was late and caused them to miss their flight and Lee Seung Mi gave many thick skinned and plausible excuses to the point where Park Ki Woong said "I've never had a girlfriend who could talk so well."Since 2005, Park Ki Woong has appeared continuously in dramas such as When it's at Night, Chuno, The Musical and movies such as My Tutor Friend 2 and War of Arrows. However, Park Ki Woong has not received much attention until now. Even if Park Ki Woong, who has till now silently trekked on the path of an actor, grabs the chance and picks another project, it will be awhile before we know if he will continue to act the bad guy or choose a role totally different. What we will not have to worry about is that no matter what kind of character he will be playing, Park Ki Woong will be able to perfectly digest the role and create on that belongs to him alone. This is also the reason for us to wait for his next project where he will show us a different side of himself.

yesterday tweetsJW: Today was able to meet with the 2 (BM) directors and also met up with Ki Woong Hyung and Chae Ah Noona. We had a happy time chatting until now and just about to go home...didn't get to meet Se Yeon, it's such a pity...I'm very happy...Goodnight everyone!HCA: Haven't met for a long time...Feel really good...there is still Star practice, we'll meet again PKW: I'm very happy to meet you two..didn't get to see Se Yeon, really a pitytoday tweetJSY: the next time, I definitely want to meet up T.....TJSY: even played Star Craft? I can't believe it!When the tweets appeared yesterday, many were speculating that they were gathering together to film a variety show because HCA mentioned "game" and some went on to speculate they will be appearing on Happy Together. Guess translations were not capturing the right words especially the part about the game. Then today JSY tweeted and apparently this "game" they were playing is "Star Craft" so perhaps JW, PKW, HCA and the directors gathered at someone's house and played Starcraft. So funny! And maybe JW didn't do well, cuz HCA tweet said "still can do Star practice" and to meet next time. LOL. JSY just couldnt believe they played the game, she must be sorely missing the fun. Gosh, this is awesome, I just want to see the 4 of them playing Star Craft
@mrdimples, thanks so much for the translations of their tweets. Awww, feel like crying seeing how close they are to each other. I hope the next gathering/event they go together, all four of them will show up. Hi KT & MD shippers, there is JW & JSY's thread available and the mashed-up pics that I requested got translated. If you're interested in seeing them, go here. I felt like crying seeing those mashed-up pics along with the translations. They give me heart pain. It's so heart-ache to see people like me who cried for KT & MD so bad that we can't bear to see them separated that we have to make up something about them using some other pictures. Anyway, I call them fanfic, hehe, since they have some dialogues there.

I was indifferent about JSY joining Five Fingers, now I am blaming the show for the fact that she is missing. Joo Won at Edwin fan meet session in a shopping centre. Was hoping to see JSY but she is not there. A Fan Account at the Edwin Autograph session:"Ha, finally got my autograph. His frame was totally tall. His face very small. Because it was too near, photos weren't allowed. I didn't manage to get a good shot. Gave oppa a present, also gave to his manager vita500 a small present to replenish strength. When oppa saw it, (he said) "Oh!" I was so very happy.But because everyone did not keep in line, In the end, oppa got angry T...Y. Sorry Oppa.
I would love to see JW and JSY in a romantic comedy but then it wouldn't be KT and MD anymore. I loved this couple!!!

Life After Marriage Gaksital Style Part I
Shunji: Kangto ah…How’s married life? Is everthing going well?
Kangto: “Ah…married life…..after marriage…life
Kangto: Shunji…I say….days are spent like this
Kangto: Just recently, because I overspent using my credit card, Boon Yi came to me while I was working diligently
Kangto: She didn't even say word but just grabbed several stalks of onions and started hitting me like crazy.
Kangto: Ya!! I am wrong. Don’t hit me anymore!
Boon Yi: Are you taking out on me now? What have you done right?
Boon Yi: You’re really asking for it. I am blowing my top. Just try to resist!
Boon Yi: Just hit you a few times, you are like this? Bad person…(angry)
Back to present
Kangto: Ah……just thinking about it, my legs turn soft
Kangto: She is no longer the Boon Yi I married….the Boon Yi that I remembered no longer exists
Kangto: They say marriage is crazy, this is not entirely baseless… recently…I am very afraid of Boon Yi
Kangto: Then..Shunji…How about you? How are you and La La? Isn’t La La very considerate, she is good to you, right?
Shunji: Ya. Are you joking? No words to say…my heart grows weak.

Part 2 of Life after marriage Gaksital style!Shunji: "Just recently too, I burst my credit limit on my credit card when I paid for a dinner gathering at a high class restaurant. I almost got slapped! Needless to say the situation was like walking on thin ice. I felt like I was going to get a heart attack with every step I took....It totally felt like an out of body experience. What was more infuriating was that aside from complaining to her father, she treats me like I'm transparent even when I standing right in front of her and she doesn't ever give me food! Everyday it's just noodles...instant noodles..."Shunji: "I'm...I'm so lonely I can't take it anymore...Kangto ya....Ah...Hae Suk said before that marriage is love's grave...Kangto ya...I feel so tragic..."Kangto: "Shunji ya...how did you and I both end up like this...Where did Kyung Sung's top modern man go to?"Tasha: "Sigh...silly boys."After this, no one said anything more.
