[Drama 2013] 7th Grade Civil Servant / Level 7 Civil Servant 7급 공무원

Recommended Posts

An so looking forward to this. I missed his smiles and his winks and I'm hoping that this secret agent is going to do the song and dance routine here too, like he did in BM. And the female lead, please please be someone young and fresh (like JSY) and not some older actresses trying to look cute and young as in Kim TH!

class="headline"Actor Joo Won confirmed for MBC TV drama ‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’By Korea Star Daily | Kpop Fighting – 16 hours ago

Actor Joo Won has confirmed his participation in drama ‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’.

A representative from Joo Won’s management agency, Sim Entertainment, revealed on September 28th, “After starring in KBS 2TV drama ‘Bridal Mask’, Joo Won has now confirmed his participation for a new drama where he will play a stylish and mysterious intelligence agent.”

‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’ is scheduled for broadcast in January 2013 through MBC TV, and will see Joo Won cast as the male lead, Gil Lo.

The drama is an adaptation of the 2007 film ‘Level 7 Civil Servant’ which starred Kim Ha Neul and Kang Ji Hwan. The rom-com-thriller sees a regular guy date a woman not knowing that she is actually an undercover secret agent. Things get complicated when the guy gets recruited himself to become a super spy, and hilarious events occur as they try to keep their secret identities under wraps.

The drama will focus on the love, friendship, and all kinds of funny events and skirmishes that happen to the new generation of secret agents in an organization.

Joo Won’s character, Gil Lo, was heavily influenced since he was young by the 007 James Bond film series. He aspires to be a secret agent himself when he grows up, and strives hard to realize his dream. Thanks to his dad who becomes rich overnight, Gil Lo lived a comfortable life since he was born, and treats everyone nicely. He is a perfect example of a city mannered guy with his good looks as well. After getting recruited as an intelligence agent, he strives hard to solve all kinds of sticky situations.

But contrary to expectations, Gil Lo isn’t the normal stereotypical intelligence agent that you imagine to be. He thinks unconventionally and will meet with lots of obstacles in his work. But he will soon grow into his role to become a top secret agent. Joo Won will be showing off a vastly different image from what he is usually associated from his past works.

Through his new drama, Joo Won will show off his brand new charisma that only he can pull it off. Joo Won has received much love from viewers thanks to his dramas like ‘Bridal Mask’, ‘Ojakgyo Brothers’, and ‘King of Baking, Kim Tak Goo’, and he will once again display his outstanding acting ability through ‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’, and cement his position in the industry. After his stirring role in ‘Bridal Mask’, he will be starring as an innocent sentimental guy in his new drama.

The production company behind ‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’, Apple Tree Production, expressed, “Planning for ‘Secret Battle of Man and Woman’ begun in 2010. We discussed with the original film writer, Chun Sung Il, about making it into a drama and then begun planning for it. It took us 2 years of planning before we decided to go into filming. We have high expectations for our leading man, Joo Won, and we believe that he will do justice to the drama with his acting and image.”

class="content-title" Joo Won Shifts to Romantic Comedy in New Spy Role Joo Won Shifts to Romantic Comedy in New Spy Role

Joo Won goes from one spy role to the next. Just after wrapping “Bridal Mask,” in which he played the lead character, local news agencies report the actor taking on another spy character. This time, however, Joo Won challenges himself with romantic comedy.

Reports said he is cast in “Secret Lovers,” a drama based on the premise of the movie “Level 7 Civil Servant,” which starred Kang Ji Hwan and Kim Ha Neul as lovers and spies hiding their identity from each other.

Joo Won’s character in “Secret Lovers” is described as someone who has decided since he was young to become a spy after watching a James Bond film. His father is rich so he grew up comfortably. He is also characterized by a chic and suave appearance.

“Secret Lovers” is planned for 20 episodes and scheduled to premiere in January.

I am putting this here because it showed his reason for wanting to act in a romantic drama which I suppose this upcoming drama is. And he said he doesn't understand women well. Hope his new partner will kick his a** LOL

I Love Sportswear. I am Boring and also not Handsome

Joo Won, the ordinary looking but extraordinary actor

He is an actor who does not need to dress up and yet he shines brightly in both appearance and acting skills. Possessing flower boy good looks and a charming smile, every word he says carries weight. Is that why his acting is so great? We do not need to compare him with those more experienced actors, because Joo Won being the “strongest among his peers” is making major strides in his acting career.

Nothing, not the wind nor the rain can stop Joo Won's progress. Debuting in the 2010 Baker King Kim Tak Gu whose ratings shot over 45% followed by Ojakgyo Brothers which had a ratings of almost 40%. It is not only numbers but Joo Won’s matured acting which stood out in the audience’s eyes and gradually entered their hearts. Compared to his earlier works, the recent Bridal Mask which although had lower ratings, it more than adequately showcased Joo Won’s growth as an actor.

The first question we asked when we met Joo Won was “Is your voice all right?” In Bridal Mask, there were many scenes that required shouting so we were worried. “It did change a little for the worse because it was a character who could not control his emotions. That’s why I just let it all out.” When we heard Joo Won spoke about the state of his voice, we were shocked that in in such a condition, he could still display such outstanding acting skills.

Not just shouting, there were a lot of action scenes that exact a physical toil on the body. At the end of an emotional crying scene, his hands and feet will become numb. His love lines with Mok Dan were also the envy of many. The role of Lee Kangto which he played, was not an easy one.

“After Bridal Mask, I let go(laughs). I need to let go of everything in order to act out perfectly all the different expressions and emotions of Lee Kangto. When I saw the script, my lines had the most exclamations,  so when I act, I needed to substantiate myself with the right feelings. Especially those two consecutive days of filming the death scenes of ‘hyung’ and ‘mother’, it was very distressing and difficult.”

Joo Won said “After the scene, my hands and feet went numb, even breathing was difficult.” Even though he threw his entire self into the act, there were some regrets. At the time of acting, he felt he had done his best, however later, he discovered there were much that was not adequate. It is probably natural for an actor to think this way.

“When I was filming, I will tell myself not to be like this. But because I did not sleep well, my physical energy and mental strength also declined. Hence there were many details that I neglected. When I was acting those emotional scenes, I concentrated fully. But in the smaller scenes, I did not invest much of my experience into it. This is the part that makes me regret. “

Normally, Joo Won loves to wear sportswear, he does not like to dress up. It came to a point where his stylist banned him from wearing sportswear. However as an actor, Joo Won is totally different. “Although I am not sure if it’s right or wrong, but (as an actor) if I do not adequately express my own ideas, I will became very sensitive. If I do not perform well, I will be mad.”

We wonder if this is the reason for his rapid growth? Joo Won said “After each piece of work is over, I honestly felt my own progress.”

3 dramas, 3 different roles. His choice may be a reflection of his desire towards acting. Joo Won said “When I look at the role, first I will see if it is attractive, and if the plot has twists and turns, that will be even better. Up till now, all the roles that I have played are characters who have a lot of pain and suffering buried in their hearts, I pity them that’s why I made the choice.”

Joo Won chooses to act in romance, setting himself the next challenge.

“I want to act in a romantic love drama. When I started acting, I already felt that acting romantic love scenes are the most beautiful and also the most difficult. For man, of all emotional expressions, the expression of love should be the most difficult. Although I can’t wait to act but there must be time to prepare. To me, love is the most difficult, moreover I also do not really understand a woman’s heart(laughs).”

It may not be fitting to describe Joo Won as lanky and tall, sturdily built and having a pure innocent manga face of a protagonist. But these word will not be enough if we were to describe him when he is completely immersed in acting.

"I am not the type who is very dashing in appearance. Moreover, I am not interesting, nor handsome, I look more ordinary than anyone else.” Joo Won added. Although we could not agree, but since he emphasized so many times, we will just it slip. But there is one thing which not matter what is said, we will not compromise. It is that he is indeed an extraordinary actor.

@aisling @mrdimples @mojobobo @aemi @alysanne I thought YEH looks beautiful in the pics in tis post (sorry i cant post the pics with my mphone).

http://www.soompi.com/2012/03/12/yoon-eun-hye-goes-back-to-school-enrolls-as-grad-student/

Now then I know YEH is oso one of those few female artistes who pursue higher education and even surprising tat she chose film production like Goo Hye Sun who has alrdy made her directorial debut and showcased a couple of her works. GHS is one of the few really talented korean female artistes whom I hold high regards for. She is a painter and a published author too, though her acting skills not so good :D

@ctfrsgp: Well,let's just wait and see. I remember she's in the Coffee Prince drama right, though I haven't watched it but my boss who is a man by the way like her in that drama. As I told you before, it doesn't matter to me who Joo Won's partner is as long as it's a good match and they will have a good chemistry. Any moment by now, they might announce the cast of this drama and I'm excited to find out.

This is going to be rom com so can we expect some nice kisses? In Bridal Mask, they said romance is not the focus and JSY is too young, the director only wanted Joo Won to give JSY a peck but it turn out to be a long smooch although you can't see it in the final cut. In Ojakgyo, Joo Won's character was someone who could not express himself so he and Uee had mostly 'choding' or innocent kiss. I wonder what will it be like in this drama? Can Joo Won do a proper kiss? I mean one that's not just "lock and stay still" ?  We'll have to ask badboy Ma Jun, huh?

Yeah, I like the almost Mr & Mrs Smith kiss scene that they have... I hope they have something like that. And I hope its not the timid kind coz spies are not suppose to be timid right? If the lead like 007, then he should have a spy life like 007, will kind of sort of like 007. Coz we know 007 can swoon any ladies that comes his way and his kisses is supposed to be so hot to resist.

Maybe we really have to ask Ma Jun.

What do you think Ma Jun?
