Han Chae Young’s offbeat theatrical debut
Starting on December 7 and running through March 2, 2008, actress (and Korea’s “Barbie Doll” — for her tall, shapely proportions) Han Chae Young begins her performance in the play Inept People [서툰사람들] (alternate translations: “Awkward People,” “Clumsy People”). The play marks Han Chae Young’s debut theatrical role and kicks off the upcoming wave of heated theatrical competition. (Also performing in upcoming plays: high-profile stars Go Soo, Yoo Ji Tae, Hwang Jung Min.)
SONG OF THE DAY
Tensi Love – “Hoo-hoo.” I have no idea what the song title means. Please don’t ask. I would be forced to make up something grossly inappropriate. [ zShare download ]
The play was written by its director, Jang Jin, when he was 23 years old and in military service, and tells the story of a lovable but awkward-in-love middle school teacher, Yoo Hwa-yi (Han Chae Young). She’s accosted in her apartment by the simple and bumbling robber Jang Deok Bae (Jang Young Nam) — and what follows is a witty, bizarre night of reversals. The director debuted three years ago to much acclaim, and his theatrical return comes with high expectations.
As for the other stars: Go Soo’s theater debut comes in the play The Return of President Eom; Hwang Jung Min takes the stage with College of Laughs, and Yoo Ji Tae actually directs and acts in his own play, Six of Six.
