Actress Kim Hye-su Comfortable with Revealing Outfits


Sexy actress Kim Hye-soo, known for her provocative fashion sense, says she knows when people are staring at her, but that she doesn't mind and that it's a chance to provide a sense of fantasy to others.

Appearing on the KBS 2TV late night talk show hosted by actor Park Joong-hoon that aired Sunday, Kim talked about her sexy dresses. She was against wearing clothes that made a person uncomfortable in regards to what others would think. But she said she was personally comfortable wearing revealing outfits.

Regarding the rising trend of actresses baring more skin at award ceremonies, she responded positively, saying, "I guess I started the trend, but it's more due to the freer social atmosphere of today. I think it's positive. Actresses don't always wear fancy dresses. It's a time when the public and myself can enjoy something extra special and different."

She said her daring fashion sense resulted from her childhood, when she couldn't wear the clothes she wanted. She said, "It was different back then. As a child, I couldn't choose what I wanted to wear. I sometimes wore my mom's clothes and what she wanted me to wear: the 'good girl' look. I began to dress the way I wanted starting with midriff-baring T-shirts from my mid-20s."

Kim debuted in the 1986 film "Kambo" with Park and has retained star status over the past 20 years. On the talk show, she also talked about her life as an actress and a woman and about getting older.

She said, "I went through my adolescent years rather late in my 20s, when I seriously pondered on my life's direction. I couldn't even decide whether I would continue acting." On having children she said, "I don't want to get married but do want kids. It was a battle for me. But I'm now content to have my nephews. They make me sufficiently happy."

About aging, she said, "There is the fear of my physical condition getting worse, but what I fear the most is that my inner self will not correspond to my mature age."

On the pressures of being an actress, she said, "No matter how talented an actor is, not all his or her works can be fabulous. But no actor should stop evolving. We must express through our body the years we have lived."

I'd just like the to thank the beautiful miss for having the insight to reveal more of herself to a much appreciative public. :P And for inspiring other's, who are similarly blessed, to reveal more of their own assets, the nation of South Korea (and the nations throughout a much grateful planet) need to commission their greatest artists to construct a bust, set in gold, forever commemorating the great gifts which the lovely Miss Kim has so thoughtfully laid at the feet our our bulging eyes and pounding hearts. :o:w00t::phew::rolleyes:

Paula Zahn, an American TV journalist and cellist, called actress Kim Hye-soo Korea's Angelina Jolie when she met her during a special evening concert at Hoam Art Hall in Seoul, Wednesday.

She hosted the event and played with the Sejong Soloists. When Kim introduced herself, Zahn said, "Oh, I heard you are Korea's Angelina Jolie. Do you have six kids?" Kim laughed.

Zahn has had a glamorous career as a broadcast journalist with CNN and now PBS. She said she had covered Korea many times as a journalist, but it was her first time here. "I was impressed by the warmth of Korean people, and will carry that back with me," she told the audience.

To those who are familiar with the Sejong Soloists, a New York-based classical music group, Zahn is rather well known as a cellist. For nine years now, she has appeared at the group's year-end benefit concerts as a host.

She began playing the cello at the age of five. In 1992, she had her debut performance at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops orchestra. She thanked the Korea Foundation, the organizer of the concert, for giving her the opportunity to travel to Korea.

Other than Kim, actor Park Joong-hoon, foreign ambassadors and other guests also attended the performance, praising Zahn and the Sejong Soloist.

Film stars get graphic at Open Art Fair

Actresses Kim Hye-soo and Sim Eun-ha will show their paintings at the Seoul Open Art Fair which starts at COEX in Samsung-dong next Wednesday.

Kim is among the country's A-list actresses while Sim, though she retired from acting years ago, continues to draw media attention.



The fair's special exhibition named "Star Arts Project" will also display artwork by other celebrities such as actor Kang Seok-woo, actress Kim Ae-kyung, singer Cho Young-nam, and TV presenter Lee Sang-byuk. In response to the high level of public interest generated, the fair unveiled the two paintings in advance to the press last week.

Sim will display three paintings in Indian ink. The untitled works are serene and calm, just like the actress's image. "Her works have high quality," said an official of the fair.


This is not the first time for Sim to display her work to the public. While learning from painter Min Kyung-chan, Sim participated in another exhibition in 2003. Sim has rarely made public appearances since she married in 2005. It is of great interest to the media whether or not she will show up for the opening ceremony next Tuesday.

Kim, meanwhile, will display three abstract collages. Her works also resemble her image -- sexy, confident and passionate. She created her work by pasting photo images onto canvas painted in intense red using broad, rough stokes. She is a self-taught artist.

Seoul Open Art Fair, exhibiting paintings, sculptures, photographs, engravings and installation arts in 105 booths, runs from April 15 to 19 at COEX in Samsung-dong, southern Seoul. For more information, call (02) 545-3314 or visit www.soaf.co.kr

Probably the sexiest actress in Korean cinema right now. I look at her and think: "maneater." :ph34r: (and I mean that in the most complimentary way)

...which was the furthest thing from my mind when she was annoying me with her unrelenting goodness in "Have We Really Loved?" :lol: Kudos to her for a successful career reinvention, thanks to "Hypnotized" and her unforgettable turn as Madam Jung in "Tazza." She has strong, independent and smoking hot down pat, but she isn't afraid to de-glam like she did in "Skeletons in the Closet" (where she made a pretty convincing slob, heh). The fact that she sounds smart in her interviews and has other artistic pursuits like painting are a plus too.

Kim HyeSoo's one cool dame.

The artworks at this year's SOAF ranges from works by famous artists to young artists' works. "This year's event will provide chances for collectors to purchase artworks they have been hesitating to buy, even at much more affordable prices," said Lee Suk-young, head of the committee.

To garner interest in the event, artworks by famous entertainers will be also displayed at the fare. Those to be exhibited include works by singer Cho Young-nam, actresses Shim Eun-ha and Kim Hye-soo, and actor Kang Seok-woo.

Actress interviews artists as part of OnStyle program


Kim Hye-soo will be participating in an art donation campaign organized by the cable channel OnStyle. In a documentary program titled “Style Meets Art,” Kim plays the role of “passion linker,” talking to renowned artists in Korea and around the world about their lives and love of art.

The actress will also be creating some of her own art pieces, which will be sold through auction later in the year. The profits will all go to the Korean National Commission for Unesco, where they will be used to support art and culture projects as well as young artists in developing countries. Style Meets Art airs in October.

Kim Hye-soo Joins Charity Campaign with Artists


Actress Kim Hye-soo has joined a charity campaign called "Style Meets Art" with a group of artists. Co-organized by the cable TV channel On Style and the Korea National Commission for UNESCO, the campaign involves video interviews with famous domestic and overseas artists. Works that will be donated by the artists will be auctioned off at the end of the year and the proceeds will be donated to the Korea National Commission for UNESCO. The commission, in turn, will transfer the donations to a fund aimed at nurturing young artists and helping children from poor countries. Kim's works of art will also be put up for auction.

Launched in May this year, the campaign invites six to seven artists every year. The first artist to be featured was French animation director Jean G. Poulot. On Style airs Jean G. Poulot's animation works daily and will air Kim's interview with artists in October.

Kim says she is happy to publicize the importance and beauty of art through this campaign and that she donates her works not as an artist but as a person who loves art.

Hello Rubie

Style is already halfway through but the thread is still quiet. Anyway, I love her portrayal of PKJ. She totally brings the character alive and I watch Style mainly because of her...

Great actress and she seems smart as a person as well.
