Invitation marks Yoo Ji-tae’s fourth directorial short

As we know, actor Yoo Ji-tae (of the recent SBS melodrama A Star’s Lover) is also quite serious about directing — he’s produced three separate shorts, which have all made their way round the short-film festival circuit.

Now his fourth, Invitation [초대], has been invited to the Short Shorts Film Festival in Japan, which runs from June 9 through June 14. However, it’ll get a domestic screening first; Invitation will show at Yoo Ji-tae’s upcoming April 5 Seoul fanmeeting.

The film, which Yoo also wrote, features him acting alongside actress Eom Ji-won; coincidentally (?), both Yoo and Eom lent their voices to songs by pop singer Jin Ju‘s latest single (listen to Yoo’s track below).

Yoo’s previous shorts include 2003’s Bicycle Boy, 2005’s How Do the Blind Dream, and the most recent, 2008’s Out of My Intention.

Now, the bigger question is: Now that his drama series has ended with something of a whimper, will he ever take another TV job again, or will he return safely to film roles? (Something tells me he’s not gong to be sticking around TV-land.)

(Heh, how many times can you say “short” in one post? Short, short short. Short. SHORT!)

SONG OF THE DAY

Jinju – “미안해” (I’m Sorry) featuring narration from Yoo Ji-tae. Not really my kinda song, but oh well.

He also starred with Uhm Ji Won in Traces of Love. Maybe they're friends? :)

I wish his shorts (SHORT! lol) would surface online, I'd love to see them, even w/o subs.

Ah, gorrilas. I can SO relate! Dude, a few years ago, a girl living next door put the same freakin' song (Wind of change by the Scorpions) for 15 days straight. On repeat. She never stopped. And it was loud. I thought I was going to commit murder. But she's getting married so she's moving out soon, thank the heavens!

"Something tells me he’s not gong to be sticking around TV-land."

Does it take a little failure to quit? Hm

can see yoo lean towards lawyer, doctor types on TV...maybe even sageuk (he's got the aura/height like kim sang kyung...maybe not a good idea.) he's sort of marked as melo-man, isn't he? got himself into another romance movie (w/ yoon jin suh.)

Quote: “Something tells me he’s not gong to be sticking around TV-land.”

Too easy to give up for one failure because he chose a wrong script and female lead. In that drama he could not brought out himself as a male lead as he had to share airtime with too many supporting actors. The script was written in such a way just to outshine the actress and her ability on kisses only with no strong theme in it.
Make another drama with the versatile actress Sohn Ye Jin.

sohn yeh jin drama with JJH also didn't have good rating less than 15%, it is not becoz of the actors and the actresses only, sometimes the script, time factor and the dramas from the competitors also determine the rating, (sometimes I feel that Korean are not creative on that matter)
