Recommended Posts

I'm agree with you Jicks. It's a little bite sad but with some hope at the end.
Yep I think so, too. It kinda makes you learn to let go of the past & accept what fate has brought to you. You can have more than one soul mate!

Thanks Elite for the link & the pic! He's looking swell ^_^

PS- Love your avie & siggie :)

Yoo Ji-tae experiments with the stage

Yoo Ji-tae, a rising star in Korea's film and entertainment industry, returns to the stage with the experimental theatrical piece, "Welcome to Ghost House", next month. The drama, Yoo's second theatrical creation, is scheduled to hit the stage at Cecile Theater from April 10 to May 27.

The 31-year-old actor and film producer wannabe said that he had chosen to create another theatrical piece to remain closer to audiences.

"I can call myself a theater novice although I have already made myself known through 16 films so far. Theatrical drama, for me, is a chance to show my world and my conceptualized thoughts (directly) to audiences", said Yoo at a news conference held in Jeongdong, central Seoul, yesterday.

Yoo told reporters that the drama can be seen as an experimental piece, although he and his crew try to deliver an everlasting theme: the undetectable bond between a mother and a daughter.

"I like to take on a movie or a drama piece that has an extreme story. So we developed that sense of extremity in each scene. But it was to stress the message (love) we want to share with audiences", he said.

The drama begins with youngsters exploring a desert house to produce a TV program called 'Welcome to Ghost House'.

They meet a mysterious figure, In-woo, at the house, and through him they learn about the tragic story of a protective mother and her daughter, who sufferes from leprosy.

Yoo plays In-woo, who has a special ability to communicate with ghosts or wandering spirits.

Asked about why he produces short films or drama pieces that have nothing to do with making money, Yoo said it is because he wants to learn things through creating something on his own.

"I think it is a sort of an investment for me and for my career. I think it is a valuable attempt to make non-commercial independence film or stage drama, as a person who is involved in the commercial movie industry.

Yoo became a star actor after taking a lead role in "Old Boy" (2003), a smash-hit Korean film by the ingenious director Park Chan-wook, which received the grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004.

Yoo is scheduled to meet his fans on screen with new movie "HwangJin-y" in June. The movie, co-starring Yoo and actress Song Hye-kyo is an adaptation from the famous novel "Hwang Jin-i" written by North Korean writer Hong Seok-joong.

He's one tall fella and is one of a substance and humble actor out there. Just too bad that he preferred to film only movies and not dramas.

^June 6 is circled on my calender :)

I'll have to get a copy of Bye June, haven't ever seen it at my rental store, but I'll be digging!!

Welcome to Ghost House sounds veeery interesting, pity I'm thousands of miles away from the theatre it'll be showing in :( Hope it goes well for him though. I admire his choice in playing so many different roles, it just goes to prove his diversity in acting.

Yoo Ji Tae and Song Hye Kyo did photo shooting for HJN poster on March 28, that means more pics to look forward to. I don't know who will update this site but if any of us happen to bum into any pics of them, do post them here to keep the page alive :blush:

Here's a tibit taken from Hyeberagi. com regarding the movie.

Hye-kyo's second movie, Hwang Jin Yi, is expected to be released in Korea on June 6. This film has cost close to 10 billion won (US$10.6 million) including PR expenses. Cine2000 has already signed contracts to sell this film to some foreign countries according to news reports.

Once this film is premiered, it is expected to be shipped to more and more countries as Hye-kyo has so many fans in a large part of Asia and other regions. In particular, film experts reckon that Hwang Jin Yi could be rated as one of the best movies ever produced in Korea.

Posted by putriN at SHK soompi thread (credit Hyebaragi.com):

The making of Hwang Jin Yi continues----. Ms. Song Hye-kyo shot some "luxurious" posters of Hwang Jin Yi on Wednesday (Korean time). The filming, however, was under way behind the doors, said an entertainment news report. Also involved in the poster shooting was Yu Ji-tae who plays "Nomi" who loves Jin Yi. So far, the Hwang Jin Yi posters have featured Hye-kyo who plays the title role in the film. Korea's famous photographer Cho Sun-hee participated in the day-long filming.

Hwang Jin Yi is expected to be premiered in Korea in early June ehmmm.... looks like top secret photographing huh

However, both Lee and Jang were fairly silent on the topic of Hwang Jinee’s North Korean screening. According to Lee, “Although there is nothing concretely planned, there is interest from North Korea and I’m sure there’ll be good news about it...credit : hyesa2 for hyesa.com

Possibility of HJN movie screens in North Korea

The team of HJN is in the process of negotiating with North Korea regarding screening HJN in the country. If it is approved, the team would like to have an opening ceremony of HJN screening in NK before South Korea. There are many reasons for this exciting venture. One reason being that the author, Mr. Hong Suk Joong, is from NK; another is that HJN has the special privilege of filming in NK; also they received tremendous support and cooperation from the NK filming crew while at Mt. Gumgang. Thus, it would be a great honor to have this event be held in NK. Should the country rejects the application, the team would try to negotiate if they can at least have the opening ceremony be held at Kaesung where Mt. Gumgang is.
