Lee Young Ae Talks About How Being A Wife And Mother Has Influenced Her Acting


lee young ae

It’s been 13 years since Lee Young Ae’s last drama, the iconic “Jewel in the Palace.” During the January 24 press conference for SBS’s “Saimdang, Light’s Diary,” the actress spoke about how things have changed since then.

Lee Young Ae said, “I’m a working mum now. There is a difference between acting [the role of] Dae Jang Geum as a single person and acting [the role of] Saimdang as a wife and mother. It feels like my [acting] range has widened, and my color (character) has deepened. I think acting is more interesting.”

She also said, “I began working on the drama with the thought that as a working mum, I wouldn’t be any different from Saimdang in the past.”

Elaborating on the character, she continued, “Saimdang isn’t a saint. She started out thinking if it was enough to be just a perfect wife and mother. She had no choice but to be strong, balancing housework and her art. This type of bold image overlaps with Dae Jang Geum. The enjoyment for viewers will differ according to how they perceive Dae Jang Geum in Saimdang.”

Many things may have changed for Lee Young Ae over the years, but her dedication to her craft has not. Back in the days of “Jewel in the Palace,” the actress had taken classes in cooking royal cuisine for about a month, to prepare for the role. This time, she also learned folk painting for about a month as well, for a painting scene in “Saimdang, Light’s Diary.”

Four reasons to watch Lee Young-ae and Song Seung-heon's "Saimdang: Light's Diary"

photo812502.jpg

The first and second episodes of the new SBS drama "Saimdang: Light's Diary" are being broadcast on the 26th.

"Saimdang: Light's Diary" is a fusion historical about a Korean History lecturer named Seo Ji-yoon (Lee Young-ae) who comes across Saimdang's (Lee Young-ae) diary in Italy. Here are some points not to miss to enjoy the drama to the fullest.

- Lee Young-ae comes back for the first time in 13 years, while Song Seung-heon makes a difference

This is the first time Lee Young-ae is making a drama appearance since "Dae Jang Geum" 13 years ago. Fellow actors can't help but express their happiness of being able to work with her. Lee Young-ae takes on 2 roles as Saimdang and Seo Ji-yoon. Director Yoon Sang-ho and writer Park Eun-ryeong claim they couldn't imagine anyone else playing the part of Saimdang. Song Seung-heon is her co-actor and he is appearing as the Joseon version of "The Great Gatsby". Lee Young-ae claimed she saw a side of him she never imagined and it's the best she's seen so far.

- Oh Yoon-ah, Kim Hae-sook, Park Hye-soo and Yang Se-jong

Various actors and actresses are making appearances in the drama. Rising rookies Park Hye-soo and Yang Se-jong are taking on the roles of young Saimdang and Lee Kyeom. They start off the drama with sweet and innocent romance. Yang Se-jong plays two roles as young Lee Kyeom and the modern day Han Sang-hyeon, Seo Ji-yoon's helper in tracking down the secret to Geum-kang San-do. Saimdang's rival Hwieumdang is played by Oh Yoon-ah. The other casts includes Kim Hye-sook, Choi Jong-hwan, Yoon Da-hoon, Choi Cheol-ho, Lee Kyeong-jin, Choi Il-hwa, Kim Mi-kyeong, Park Joon-myeon, Lee Hae-yeong, Hong Seok-cheon and more.

- Fusion historical drama with imagination

"Saimdang: Light's Diary" begins with Seo Ji-yoon, an ordinary working mom who discovers Saimdang's diary in Italy. She unveils interesting tales that we never dreamt of. It's not a time-slip fantasy, but it's based on historical facts. Saimdang, Lee Yool-gok's mother and the best example of a good wife and wise mother, was the first genius artist there ever was during her time. Wirter Park Eun-ryeong says, "Saimdang was known as Artist Shin rather than Yool-gok's mom. She was a mother and a wife but she loved art and the way she sacrificed herself is still not uncomfortable to see today". Lee Young-ae who studied the historical figure for her part, said, "I just wish she wasn't reflected as a wife and mother. She was elegant but energetic and that's how I plan on portraying her".

- Excellent imagery and directing

"Saimdang: Light's Diary" was taken all over the country for a year. It was even taken in Italy to create imagery beyond expectations. Under Yoon Sang-ho's orders, the cast and crew followed his lead and created a well-made drama. We can also see Korean art through this drama. Like "Dae Jang Geum" delivered the taste of Korean food all over the world, "Saimdang: Light's Diary" will spread the beauty of Korea and Korean art. Lee Young-ae's drawing has become so good it's hard to believe she learned it in a month and Song Seung-heon plays the Geomungo like he was meant to. Everyone struggled to learn the art of history so that it doesn't seem awkward in the drama.

"......in tracking down the secret to Geum-kang San-do.  "

%EA%B8%88%EA%B0%95%EC%A0%84%EB%8F%84.jpg

Geumgangsando, painted by Joseon artist Jeong Seon (정선, 鄭歚, 1676~1759, pen-name Gyeom Jae 겸재,謙齋). This is not the painting that is depicted in the drama but similar brush painting

Geumgang sando (금강산도,金剛山) is the painting that started rolling for the drama which the modern Seo Ji Yun in a dilemma while trying to authenticate the identity of the artist or painter of the painting where it was claim that it was drawn by the Painter An Gyeon (안견,安堅 circa 1447, said to live from 1418-1453) & famous for his mountain landscape paintings. In the preview the young Saimdang trying to scale the stone wall to get a glimpse of An Gyeon's painting

A little information on Geumgangsan (금강산金剛山), known to the west as "Diamond Mountain"

Since ancient times, the Korean have perceive their muse towards the scenic beauty of Geumgangsan. In Joseon Dynasty many poet & artist have written, painted works of arts & made pilgrimage to the mountain

As the drama Yi San had explained when Seong Seon Yeon painted the 4 seasons of Geumgangsan & name each painting according to the seasons. In Spring, the mountain is "Geumgang" (금강산金剛山) as it is widely known today. In Summer, the mountain is known as "Bongraesan (봉래산, ), in autumn, it is known as "Pungaksan (풍악산, , or  ) & in winter it is "Gaegolsan (개골산, )

As Geumgangsan (now predominantly located in North Korea)  is part of the Taebaek mountain which will be the mountain range that is seen & close to Gangneung, Saimdang's hometown & residence

There is a Korean idiom or proverb "Geum Gang San Do Sik Hu Gyeong (금강산도 식후경, 金剛山也是食後景) literally means eat first before going to see Geumgangsan even how scenic it is......which it actual meaning "a loaf of bread is better than the songs of many birds....it is important that one needs to satisfy one's stomach before starting on a hard's day work

The opening scene sounds sad. It's show Lee Gyeom first.

They just introduce Seo Yi Joon's work now. She founds a painting now.

I will come back after something appeared.

The scene open in Bologna, Italy in 1551 where Yi Gyeom paint a portrait of Shin Saimdang as he remembers her. Yi Gyeom is in artistic madness as this is the year that Shin Saimdang passed away in 1551

It starts out with the authenticity of persumely An Gyeon's Geumgangsan is in dispute as the era of the paper it is mounted on shown as a later date (Edo Period), which will be the 16th century & not the 15 century where the era An Gyeon had lived

It looks like Seo Ji Yun would time travel to the past to meet with Yi Gyeom

Easter egg in the drama

Seo Ji Yun's husband left her stacks of W50,000 notes which have Shim Saimdang at a railway locker

Seo Ji Yun & family moving to Yulgok-ro. Yulgok is the pen-name of Yi I, 3rd child of Shin Saimdang
