Rising Stars

For the 12th annual Pusan International Film Festival, Premiere Magazine chose its nominees for the third round of their “Premiere Rising Star Award,” based on the actors’ activities in the recent past and their potential for future success. In addition to the existing category of male and female rising stars, the following new categories were added: male and female new talent, director’s award, and short film award. Among the nominees were actors Daniel Henney and Kim Ah Joong (pictured here)…

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY

Kim Ah Joong – “Maria” from the soundtrack of 200 Pound Beauty, starring Kim Ah Joong.

(But frankly, I prefer the version of “Maria” as covered by Loveholic.)

Male nominees were: Daniel Henney, Lee Seon Kyun, Lee Junki, Jo Han Seon, and Ha Jung Woo.

Female nominees: Kim Min Jung, Kim Ah Joong, Kim Tae Hee, Yoon Eun Hye, and Han Ji Min.

(I dunno; I’m not necessarily disagreeing with the choices, but they seem awfully random, don’t they? The names don’t quite go together. It also isn’t exactly the most… current list… It strikes me as an odd grouping. If we’re talking real, current rising stars, I’d lose a few of the names that aren’t doing much right now and add fresh talent. For instance, Han Hyo Joo, Gu Hye Sun, Jung Yumi, Lee Da Hae, Lee Dong Wook, Kang Ji Hwan, Shin Dong Wook, Jung Il Woo…)

The directing category named Kim Yong Hwa, Kim Ji Hoon, Kim Han Min, Lee Kyu Man, and Han Jae Rim. Prior rounds of Premiere’s award went to Jo Seung Woo and Kang Hye Jung, while the second went to Ryu Seung Beom and Im Su Jung. The award ceremony will take place at the Pusan Film Festival on October 5.

I wouldn't say Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Tae hee are exactly new...I mean they've starred in more than two dramas already...

I'm okay with Yoon Eun Hye because the list is for rising stars and she's been on a steady rise since her acting debut just last year. Kim Tae Hee is one name I would've left off the list; Kim Min Jung has been acting for over a decade (and wasn't her last drama more than a year ago?) Lee Seon Kyun's an iffy choice -- he's been around for a little while, but I can kind of see it because he's had a recent rise in visibility, acting in two well-received dramas this year (White Tower, Coffee Prince), one of which was a HUGE mainstream hit as well. But Jo Han Seon? Ha Jung Woo? There are a lot more visible, more current, and more "rising" actors around.

Is Kim Ah Joong a real singer because she sounds good in her song "Maria"? If not, she convinced me.

The "Maria" song in '200 pounds beauty' might be computerized (since it's a fiction). If she was that good, she would go for singing career. I never saw her sing live at all, we never sure about her singing. I was really moved by '200 pounds beauty', so I don't want to make any comment about her acting until she did another movie. I liked her, but the more I watch her I am starting to get a turn off. She IS pretty but her beauty is .... too fake.

True, the list is so random.

If I can join the voting, I would vote for YEH. I think she did a good job in Coffee Prince. Some sources said KJAh was the first actress proposed for EC, but I dont think she could do such a great acting like YEH... Goooo YEH... I hope she will win.

out of the new list
i only think han ji min and yoon eun hye deserves those slots..
for the guys maybe daniel henney but that's it..

I agree with your list more especially for the females. I think Kim Tae Hee is enough of a household name not to be considered a "rising" star. In addition, I haven't seen much activity from her lately. I also think Kim Min Jung, while I enjoyed some of her acting, seems like a very bizarre and random choice. She hasn't starred in anything recently and I've basically lost all news of her since Fashion 70s which was in 2005. The one person who I think really deserves to be on the list is Jung Yumi. Shes got tons of potential and she really has the skills to become an even better actor. Que Sera Sera may have gotten low ratings but, this IS an award potential future success.

For the guys I think Jae Hee should be an addition to the list. While Witch Yoo Hee totally tanked, Jae Hee was the only reason I could even get through the first several episodes. He has a lot of acting potential and with the right drama, I think he will go very far.

hmm actually the rising star list is for those who acted in MOVIES in the past 2 years... so some of the pple that you would rather see in the list technically cannot be on it cos they simply haven't done so. having said that... i don't fancy the list all that much haha jus happy to see yoon eun hye on it =) though i must admit it could have gone to something else (cos her movie "escaping from charisma" didnt do too well

i dun think the results are released so early .normally only when the festival opens ..so i dun think the winners list is out now . but yes you are right , the list is for rising star in the MOVIE scene not for drama . so only those who had movies production can be included in the list .
this award was only introduced very recently two years ago and the winner list all four of them were already quite estabished actors when they win the Rising star .
i thought the male nominnee category Ha Jung Woo is the better choice .as for kim tae hee i think she had not really even prove she can do anything much of substance yet on the movie screen .her name should probably be taken out . but now they add in other new category of New Female actor/Male Actor . i guess there is a difference in the category between Rising star and the new comer category .

Daniel Henney? Eh, that guy is hotter than hell but he can't act for a dime (not that it matters, but still).
And Kim Ah Joong is overrated.

Han Ji Min should be on the list, she's had two dramas and a movie in a year already and she's getting better. With Yisan, she's on the rise ^ ^

Yoon Eun Hye, Jung Yumi and Jung Ryeo Won (not much news these days though) are on my A-list of young rising stars.

Daniel Henney sure has the looks and charms. But i reckon that it will be hard if he is still not fluent with the korean language. However, I do have to admit that he is much better compared to Dennis Oh.

As for Kim Ah Joong, i agree that she is overrated.

I hate Kim Ah Joong, her beauty is just too fake. Couldn't find anything to like from her face. Her figure is quite alright - hot indeed yet it doesn't have anything to do with whether she can act convincingly or not. I can stand listening to "Maria" though - if it's really HER performance.

And I love YEH. Her transformation from one drama to another was spectacular (I haven't seen any of her movie but I believe she ALWAYS gives her best shot). So go YEH!

Kin Tae Hee.... she has starred in several dramas and is a well established actor, wouldnt say she is a newbie exactly. Most of the nominees has already been known for a while..

Personally, I like KAJ's version of Maria. Loveholic's great and everything, but if they're going to sing in English, I prefer Blondie's original version.

Wish I was that well verse with Korean names but they tend to confuse me a lot. I know the names of my fave stars but the rest remain garbled in my mind. I think Yoon Eun Hye should get the award for the female category. Why??? Because she made me miss 2 days of work just to finish watching Princess Hours, thats why. This feat is being repeated again with her as the lead star (Coffee Prince) I filed a 1 day vacation leave so I could finish Coffee Prince. Thank God they only have 18 episode. Lee Junki, now this guy I first encountered in Fly Boys (movie) he was not a stand out in that film, he was not that pretty then he, he, he. Next My Girl, he was good here. King and Clown hated the film, but Junki made me cry which in my book makes him a good actor. Fly Daddy Fly, I love him here. Okay for me this 2 should get the award, sorry to all the other contenders. I should make a confession I'm more of a film buff than a drama addict, my movie collection is more extensive. I will get it even if the review is bad because you know what I learned taste is relative. The critics might bash it but I always end up loving the film. So there, hey Java while waiting for a real good series to come along why don't you try reviewing films. I would love to know what you think, if its fine with you...

I saw this movie and I`d like to give all the credit for it`s success to the scritwriter. A very entertaining movie and the viewers can easily relate to the story. I wouldn`t say Kim Ah Joong is a great actress, she can act, but she cannot move me when it comes to all the crying scene. No variety with her acting, need more skills and if she can truly sing, well, she is good, but she can`t performed well on the stage when the scene needs it. Beauty, I can`t say she is pretty, but she`s not ugly, very ordinary face to have the title of ...a beautiful girl. So, if this movie is going to have a 2nd part. I hope they will choose an actress who can perform on stage, lets say Lee Hyori is one of the best to play the part, beauty and talent, she got. Yoon Eun Hee of coffee Prince, she can sing also. But if the character needs to gain weight again, I think the actress that will portray the role should really gain weight. Just like what KSA did in MNIKSS, to make it more realistic. I`ll be looking forward to see this movie.

*SIGHS* Didn't ANYONE see that picture of Kim Ah Joong when she was in her late-teens?!! She had reddish brown hair in it. VERY YOUNG. OBVIOUSLY that person is someone completely different. The "bef'ore" picture is some random girl, not Kim-Ah Joong. Really you shouldn't believe everything you read.

Regardless, it's ironic that she plays a girl who is accepted for plastic surgery and yet everyone still hates on her because they think she's done it but they're a fan of the movie and Kim-Ah Joong herself. The iiirrrooonnnyy...XO So weird :S
