Park Yoo Chun sees Im Si Wan as his rival among acting idols

PYC_ISW_pgcObgY.jpg

Park is considered an "acting idol," a term referring to someone like

him who switches back and forth between singing and acting activities.

Therefore, when Park Yoo Chun was asked who he considers as his

rival among the other acting idols, his response is not only a surprise

but also worth paying attention to.

He said, "Everyone does a lot of acting these days. I watched over a

lot of dramas and movies, but I was surprised when I saw Si Wan in The Attorney. I did not know he was a singer. I only knew him as an actor."  He

continue to praise Im Si Wan's acting abilities and admitted that he

later found out Si Wan was also a singer from Kim Jae Joong who had Si

Wan as a co-star in the drama, Triangle.

im-siwan-4.jpg

Im Si Wan

certainly has become a successful singer-actor. He is a member of ZE:A,

and he has acted in projects which became critical and commercial

success. As noted in this article, He was first noticed as one of the young actors in the stellar historical romance drama, The Moon that Embraces the Sun. In 2013, he won awards for his role as a student activist in the critically-acclaimed movie, The Attorney,

which became the second highest-grossing Korean film for that year

and the 8th best-selling Korean film of all time. In 2014, he starred in

two very popular dramas: Triangle and Misaeng. Having become a fan favorite in other Asian countries, he is definitely on a bright path to Hallyu stardom.

No wonder Park Yoo Chun, despite his own success, views Im Si Wan

as a rival. I'm sure Park's candid response reflects a positive

competition among young, talented, and versatile singer-actors.

As members of the audience, we are the ones who will benefit from the

continued good works from these awesome performers.

We will next see Park Yoo Chun in Sensory Couple on DramaFever. Have you watched Im Si Wan in The Attorney on DramaFever? Do you think they are rivals?

Asia's leading media conglomerate brings extraordinary content from ordinary subjects
 
Asia's leading content and media company CJ E&M has unveiled its slate for MIPTV 2015, which features nine new key formats. Korea's latest mega hit reality entertainment Three Meals a Day leads the lineup, as well as unprecedented music entertainment show I Can See Your Voice, and regional cooking competition Dish of the Nation. Scripted formats include "Let's Eat", "Sing Again, Hera Gu", "The Idle Mermaid", and "Incomplete Life".
 
Discovering extraordinary formats from ordinary subjects such as food, singing, on-line games, and office life, CJ E&M presents a strong lineup of entirely new content that is making its international debut in Cannes.
 
"We are thrilled to bring such unique formats to this year's MIPTV. Now is the time for Asian formats to prove to the world that we have something different to present. Our fresh and new formats will meet the needs of all buyers", said Hwang Jin Woo, Head of Formats at CJ E&M.
 
UNSCRIPTED FORMATS
Three Meals a Day is a No, 1 weekend primetime show in Korea, having become the latest phenomenon in recent months. It is a cooking-themed reality show with 3S's (Slow, Simple and Self-sufficient) that people yearn for in their busy life. Main characters stay in a designated village or on a remote island for a few days, miles away from their convenient lifestyle, and are left with nothing else but to cook for themselves three times a day. Continuously breaking ratings records each week on the air, Three Meals a Day had peaked to 16.8% at one point, with Episode 5, in particular, reached an average rating of 14.2%. From the original creators of the international hit Grandpas over Flowers at tvN, Three Meals a Day invites viewers to experience the next funniest yet heartwarming reality of all ages.

I Can See Your Voice is a new type of music entertainment format where contestants compete to prove that they have what it takes to be "recognized" as talented singers. Up to 8 contestants, who are either extremely talented in singing or tone-deaf, take part to convince a celebrity judging panel and a guest artist who, in the end, has to decide which contestant genuinely sings well, not lip-syncing or imitating the motions and gestures of a singer.
 
Broadcast on Korea's top food channel Olive, Dish of the Nation is the only cooking competition format that is localized to introduce indigenous dishes and culinary skills throughout various regions in one country. It will let viewers discover which region's symbolic recipe becomes the dish of the nation.
 
From START 'till CLEAR is an innovative game tutorial show for average players. As not everyone plays like god, a host and his friends play a new game every episode from the beginning until it is all clear. Viewers can immediately find straight reviews, tips and play guides of the game.
 
Let's Go Time-Travelers is a comedy reality show about going back in time to experience the real lives of our great grandfathers. Celebrities will find their roots and learn about the wisdoms of older generations, while stumbling upon the inconvenient lifestyle of the old.
 
SCRIPTED FORMATS
Korea's most sensational drama series of 2014 "Incomplete Life" (Misaeng) depicts the everyday lives of average office workers based on a popular webtoon about a failed professional Go player who ends up working at a trading company. As the lead character meets a charismatic boss, he struggles to manage daily tasks in the corporate world. Having set record high ratings and garnered extremely high attention from various groups of viewers, "Incomplete Life" has become a cultural phenomenon in Korea.
 
Propelling the "Muk-bang" (eating scene) TV trend in Korea, "Let's Eat" is a romantic comedy of singles who love to browse their favorite foods on the blog site "Let's Eat" to relieve stress from work. The main characters live alone in studio apartments, and as they get to know their co-workers and neighbors, they gradually learn how to build new relationships through food eating. The show inspires viewers to enjoy delicious meals and hunt them down in real life. Riding high on the success of Season 1, the second season of "Let's Eat" will premiere in April.
 
Musical drama "Sing Again, Hera Gu" shows lives of aspiring young musicians and their hopes to become K-Pop stars. Seven friends fail to qualify in a well-known singing competition, but they continue on with a journey to follow dreams while overcoming challenges with courage and passion, and of course sharing their passion for music.
 
"The Idle Mermaid" is a new fairy-tale-inspired drama about a mermaid who experiences life on earth for the first time, and her new life takes place in Seoul. Moving into a house with young job seekers, she struggles to find true love in order to become a real human within 100 days. The drama unfolds a unique plot and a creative satire that transcends genres.
 
The aforementioned lineup by CJ E&M will be exhibited on the stand #P-1 D75 at MIPTV 2015.

Im Shi-wan chooses period film Thoughts of Oppahttp://www.dramabeans.com/2015/03/im-shi-wan-chooses-period-film-thoughts-of-oppa/

ImShiWan16.jpg
It seems like everyone’s been waiting on pins and needles for Im Shi-wan to choose his follow-up project to last year’s hit drama Misaeng. For good reason too, since expectations are high for the idol-actor who turned heads in his big screen debut (The Attorney opposite Song Kang-ho) and then became the mascot of the Everyman as Misaeng’s Jang Geu-rae. For a while after the series ended, we just kept hearing about all the offers that were pouring in, but he’s finally picked one: a period movie called Thoughts of Oppa.

class="at_ttl"Im Si Wan Plays A Military Man With Heart

BY Julie Jones | Mar 19, 2015 10:33 AM EDT

Im Si Wan

Im Si Wan has taken a role in the upcoming movie "Thinking of Brother." The ZE:A singer-turned actor will play Han Sang Ryul, a military officer with exemplary leadership skills.

Not only does Hang have the skills to lead his troops to victory but he's compassionate. He tries to minimize the cruelties that war inflicts on those who made most vulnerable by it. The film's story is set during the 1950 - 1953 Korean War that tore the nation apart. But the film focuses less on the horror of war than the heartwarming efforts of one man to minimize its effects on children.

In the midst of war, Hang Sang Ryul becomes involved with and winds up leading a children's choir.

Director Lee Han, who is best known for his films "Punch" and "Elegant Lies," said that Im Si Wan was the perfect actor for the role.

"I can't think of anyone else apart from Im," Lee said in an interview with Korean publication TV Report. "I think he is the best fit for the movie. I have the ultimate confidence that he will pull off his role."

Im managed not to only pull off his last three roles but he earned praise and awards for them. He played Jang Geu Rae the under-qualified but optimistic office employee in the hit tvN series "Misaeng."

Playing that often-heartbreaking character won him a 2015 Cable TV Broadcasting Best Actor award.

Im Si Wan also won praise for playing Park Jin Woo in 2013 film "The Attorney," which turned out to be the eighth best-selling Korean film of all time. He won six different awards for that role.

And the actor also won an MBC Drama Award for his role in "Triangle," where he played the youngest of three brothers who were separated when they were young. Lee Bum Soo and JYJ's Kim Jae Joong played his older brothers. Im Si Wan's drama character grew up rich but was not happy.

The 26-year-old actor-singer had his first drama role in 2010 when he had a cameo appearance in the comedy "Prosecutor Princess." But he first attracted notice when he played the young Heo Yeom in the 2012 historical drama "The Moon Embracing The Sun."

He debuted with the group ZE:A in 2010

According to the Korean media outlet Newsen, "Thinking of Brother" will begin filming in May and wrap up by August.

K-Drama Actors Who Would Ace An English Exam/BY Julie Jones | KDramaStars.com
Ko Ah Sung plays Seo Bom in the drama "Heard It Through The Grapevine." Because Seo Bom comes from a poor family she surprises her wealthy in-laws with her mastery of English. When her character had to read the pages of a difficult English book, her command of the language also surprised many k-drama fans.
The 23-year-old actress does have a gift for languages but she perfected her English when she played Song Kang Ho's daughter in the Bong Joon Ho film "Snowpiercer." The film had an international cast with many English-speaking characters. Playing Yona, a girl who grew up hearing many different languages spoken, she said she had to tailor her English in that film.
"Yona can speak little bit of every language existing on the train," said Ko in an interview with tenasia. "So I spoke with an accent that was a mix of the Philippines, India, the United States and other places. People in Korea complemented me on my English pronunciation, but it would sound funny to a native speaker."
Another k-drama actor known for his fluency in English is Im Si Wan. He took The English proficiency TOEIC exam shortly after he wrapped up his role in the hit drama "Misaeng." His exam score was 820 out of 990, which he was very happy about. He only hoped to reach a score of 800.
Being able to speak English fluently is key to landing Hollywood roles. Some actors who improved their English skills enough to make the transition are Lee Byung Hun, Kim Yunjin and Bae Doona.
Lee Byung Hun has had several roles in Hollywood blockbusters such as "Red 2" and can soon be seen in "Terminator Genysis." Yunjin Kim currently appears in the TV series "Mistresses" and played a pivotal character in the hit television show "Lost." Bae Doona has appeared in several Wachowski productions, including the film "Cloud Atlas."
Being fluent in English is no guarantee that an actor will land an English-speaking role.  2PM's Ok Taecyeon is another actor whose English is commendable, which is not surprising since he attended high school in the U.S. The singer-actor appeared in "Dream High," "Who Are You?" and earned praise for his performance in the weekend drama "Wonderful Days." But despite having language skills he has yet to interest any Hollywood producers.
Krystal Jung, the star of "My Lovely Girl" is also fluent in English but that's because she was born in San Francisco. The actress and f(x) singer was discovered by a talent agency on a family trip back to Korea.
English language skills also come in handy when a drama is set partly in the U.S., as was the case in "The Heirs," which Krystal played a role in.
