One drama down, one movie to go for Jo Jung-seokby javabeans | September 8, 2013 | 32 Comments
He just wrapped a drama and has a movie release upcoming, which means more Jo Jung-seok in the news—always a good thing, I say.
He spent the past six months filming family series You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin, although I’d argue that he was terribly underutilized on that show. And that’s despite the fact that he was part of the central storyline! Still, he had moments to shine, and the drama had enough adorable, laughworthy moments between him and co-star IU to make it worth the watch. (Well, if you have no aversion to frequent use of the fast-forward button, that is.)
When Soon-shin wrapped two weeks ago, Jo Jung-seok thanked supporters of the show on Twitter, posting a photo with IU and saying, “I was really happy. Soon-shin-ah. This is a photo taken with Soon-shin-ie on our last day of shoots.”
His other co-star Go Joo-won (who played Chan-woo, sweet and steadfast partner to Yoo Inna) praised him, saying, “Jo Jung-seok hyung really takes on his work with enjoyment and interest. He creates a fun mood that enables his co-stars to enjoy themselves too. He does get fatigued and weary at times too, but he’s always the mood-setter.”
In interviews, Jo Jung-seok was asked about his feelings on wrapping Soon-shin, and admitted, “There were things I was disappointed about, but I have no regrets.” He acknowledged that there were some flaws with the story, but overall took a glass-half-full approach, saying that he’d learned a lot while working on the drama.
Unfortunately, he didn’t go on and elaborate about which of the story flaws bothered him (and there were so many to choose from…), though his diplomatic response is pretty much to be expected. Nobody’s gonna trash the show that employed them and took them to 30% ratings; we only ever hear murmurings of complaint when the drama’s a complete and utter trainwreck (and only in a small minority of those instances). Frankly I want all the gory details, but I suppose I’ll have to live with not knowing.
Jo said, “I don’t think there’s any project out there where you’d feel no disappointment. Even those performances from a long time ago that have become part of my proud filmography—on some score, there were things I felt disappointment in.”
Although… when asked about his feelings after filming The Face Reader, Jo Jung-seok replied, “I didn’t feel disappointment with Face Reader. I’m very satisfied with it.” Ha. What’s the point of diplomacy when you’ve got a movie to promote, right?
The Face Reader stars Song Kang-ho as a man with the ability to read all about a person’s fate and fortune by reading his face, and the people who get up in a dangerous plot surrounding the Grand Prince Suyang (later King Sejo), played by Lee Jung-jae. (The star-studded cast also features Kim Hye-soo, Lee Jong-seok, and Baek Yoon-shik.) Jo reportedly has crackling chemistry with Song Kang-ho (he plays his nephew and sidekick), which makes that a match-up to anticipate.
Though I wouldn’t call the movie a straight-up comedy—there’s a coup plot and high stakes that keep alive a taut dramatic thriller element—I think we can look forward to a comedic thread. (Refer to these hilarious character teasers, full of meta jokes about the cast.) And where there’s a rascally character, there’s gonna be a comparison to Jo Jung-seok’s breakout role in Introduction to Architecture, where he had a minor but memorable role that earned him the nickname Napdeuki (“I don’t understand”) for a scene where he uses that phrase repeatedly while advising Lee Je-hoon.
For having been such a brief scene, I’m a bit amazed at the lasting power of the Napdeuki moniker, but it’s stuck, and Jo was asked how he feels about it. He did wonder whether the image of Napdeuki would follow him around for the rest of his life, but reasoned that it’s not a bad association to have; it made his name known, which is something to be grateful for.
On the other hand, he’s determined not to be held back by that burden and plans to do a lot of acting playing lot of characters. Every time he’s faced with a new character to perform, he looks forward to the challenge: “How will I realize this character through myself?”
Though face reading isn’t something we’d pin our hopes (or the nation’s future) on these days, it’s one of those fortune-telling practices you can have done akin to palm or tarot readings. Jo admits that he hasn’t has his face read, although everyone asks him about it thanks to the movie: “While filming the movie, I didn’t have any curiosity about my reading. I think it was because I was absorbed in my drama. People get their faces read out of fun curiosity, but I wouldn’t go out on purpose to see mine.”
Face Reader opens on September 11, just in time for the Chuseok moviegoing rush.

.Part 5 of the JJS's Japanese blog staff interview! Talks about his career as an actor so far, and what he thinks of the future. This is the last part of the interview. Hope you enjoyed it.[TRANSLATOR'S NOTES: 1) This is part of an interview that the staff of JJS's official Japanese blog did recently. If you want to see the previous parts of the interview go here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. 2) One of the last questions, when he's asked 'when the drama finishes' is because at the time of the interview, he was still filming YTBLSS. 3) The very last line 'Thank you & I love you' was said in English.]Jo Jung Suk, Q&A Vol.5Q: How did you become an actor?A: During my high school years, I went to church. (And) at church, I naturally saw plays and musicals there. Because of that, I thought it looked enjoyable, and I started to become interested. I think (from then on) I grew up having dreams of being an actor.Q: Which role became a turning point in your life as an actor?A: For the musical, "Hedwig", during my first audition for the role of Hedwig, I fell down. In the end, I was able to do the role of Hedwig. Furthermore, as an actor, my acting became wide as the spectrum.Q: Are there any actors that you admire?A: That person! There's no one like that, it's just, the actors that I like seem to be all of the actors that I admire.Q: In the acting that you have done until now, which role do you resemble the most?A: If you mix the roles of Nab-ddeuk (from the movie, 'Introduction to Architecture') and Eun Shi Kyung (from drama, 'The King 2 Hearts') together, then I'm similar to something pleasant like that. keQ: Of all the past acting projects that you've done, which line sticks out in your memory the most (or the one you like)?A: In the drama, 'The King 2 Hearts', Eun Shi Kyung's lines:To Lee Jae Shin, "I'll return bold and confident like you. And... When I return, I will tell you in person... I love you."To Lee Jae Ha, "You're the world's strongest king."Those Eun Shi Kyung lines are what seem to stick out in my memory the most.Q: What is your favorite song from a musical? Please tell us why it's your favorite.A: Because I especially like the rock 'n' roll genre, I like the the numbers from the musicals, "All Shook Up" and "Hedwig". I especially like 'The Origin of Love' from the musical, "Hedwig".Q: From now on, what role do you want to try acting as?A: Just once, I'd like to try act in a movie with a heart-rending and painful romance storyline.Q: When you get into character (or forming your character), what kinds of things do you do?A: When thinking about how to get into character, because the authenticity is the most important point, it's like being able to develop the genuineness of that character's thoughts.Q: While performing on stage (musicals), is there an incident where you made a mistake?A: During one of performances of the musical, "Hedwig", a tomato landed on my chest. That was one of the most confusing incidents that I remember. kekekeQ: If you weren't able to become an actor, what kind of occupation do you think you'd have?A: Well... even though there is a lot that I could imagine, my answer seems to have always been an actor.Even though I have skills that I could do personally, what kind of occupation would I have, that would unintentionally last a long time... However, I think acting is something I could continue on for forever.Q: When the drama finishes, what do you want to do the most?A: I'd like to travel. Because I really like traveling... The feeling of trying anything new while traveling, being able to experience things without any reason, since I like experiencing the process of that the most... Q: What will you be like 10 years from now?A: I think I'll always be an actor who acts. As the head of the family, I'll have a loving wife and children as I live happily, right???Q: How was this Q&A session like for you?A: Looking back, I'd have time to answer these questions again. It was enjoyable.Q: Please say a few words to your Japanese fans.A: I'd first like to say thank you for all the support and admiration.Look forward to a better actor 'Jo Jung Suk' than I am now with great expectations.I also wanted to tell you... I will answer those expectations with even greater projects and better roles.Thank you & I love you![original jpn source]
