Go Go 70 prepares to premiere
by | September 19, 2008 | 9 Comments

(Does anyone else hear the words “Go go” and find yourself immediately tempted to singsong out, “…Power Rangers!”?)

The three leads of the disco-era movie Go Go 70 (Jo Seung-woo, Shin Mina, and Cha Seung-woo) came out to promote their new film on September 19.

In the film, Jo Seung-woo apparently performed all songs himself — he plays a rocker fronting a band — and found his numerous stage experiences in musicals helpful: “It wasn’t very difficult filming the performance scenes. I wasn’t required to follow the camera. We filmed as though they were real concerts,” with multiple cameras fixed in various spots to capture the unfolding events: “All I had to do was enjoy myself.”

Shin Mina, on the other hand, had this to say about her dance- and singing-heavy role (for which she trained for three months leading up to shooting): “It was a difficult process from the start. … I felt pressure working with Jo Seung-woo, too.” Having never danced in any of her prior roles before, she felt shy at the outset, but found her groove (we hope) as filming progressed.

The movie opens October 2.

    Hi, sorry to bother you with a technical question, but I was wondering – which file-storing service do you use to embed your music? I have most of my music stored on Mediafire but can’t get it to work on WordPress(I think because Mediafire doesn’t save it as “mp3”). Do you use a different one?

    On another note, I really enjoy your blog and I love nine-tenths of the songs you post. 🙂 Great taste.

    Amber, you can’t direct-link to Mediafire files — they only let you download files, not play them. You have to upload to either your own webspace or a service that allows you to hotlink the file. If you have a blog, you should be able to host your mp3 in your account and link to it there.

    One of the original Power Rangers (before he donned the suit) was a classmate in Spanish class. Yup, Power Rangers, Better Luck Tomorrow, and Shinhwa. I really underachieved at my school. 🙁

    Jo Seung Wooi is so effortlessly cool. Love the way he is dressed. He seems so comfortable in his skin. Shin Mina is so pretty but so uninteresting. She ruined Bittersweet Life for me with her fake cutesy smiles. If only Kim Jee Won had cast Lee Na-young instead of her.
