The Blue reunite, reminisce on Sang Sang Plus


Lee Jung-jae, then and now

It’s nostalgia day!

Old ’90s vocal duo The Blue is back with comeback activities, which means its two actor-singer members (Kim Min-jong and Sohn Ji-chang) are back in action and promoting their reunion.

Thus the two old friends recently appeared on Sang Sang Plus 2 and shared old stories about their earlier days, namely the hit 1994 youth trendy drama Feeling [느낌], which I LOVED.

Kim and Sohn played twin brothers in the drama (Sohn was the “elder” of the two), which was also the launching pad for a then-unknown young actor who would become a top movie star, (my!) Lee Jung-jae (of Typhoon, Air City, and soon to be seen in Triple). But according to Sohn Ji-chang, Lee Jung-jae was only cast at the last minute through a fateful chance encounter.

SONG OF THE DAY

Feeling OST – “너의뒤에서” (Behind You) by JYP. This was one of the main love themes of the series, sung by Park Jin-young — yes, that Park Jin-young — and featured on his first solo album.

I can’t overstate how much I loved Feeling back in the day. (By the way, folks, this drama is fansubbed! With S2 took it on in 2007, and if you wanna see some fun, floofy old-school romantic-comedy hilarity, you’ve gotta give it a shot. So cheesy. So awesome.)

While Kim Min-jong and Sohn Ji-chang were already hot stars back when Feeling first broadcast, that drama was the first chance for Lee Jung-jae to make his face known. (Hence: My first actor-crush ever!) If not for Feeling, would Lee not have been cast as the faithful bodyguard in Sandglass the year after, and not had the same trajectory he’s enjoyed over the past decade and a half? Who knows.

On the Sang Sang Plus 2 episode, Sohn Ji-chang explained that singer Kim Won-jun had been cast to play the youngest brother to Sohn and Kim. When the drama was first planned, all three singer-actors were to sing the theme song, and they switched the theme to suit that intent. However, at the last minute, Kim Won-jun had said that he didn’t feel confident that he was up to the job, and left the project, leaving the production in the lurch for a little bro.

Sohn said, “We had just finished a meeting with the scriptwriter and director, when Lee Jung-jae happened to be passing by in the KBS lobby. The writer called him over and asked, ‘What are you up to these days?’ and he said, ‘Nothing much, really.'” And the rest, as they say, is history.

Meanwhile, The Blue is currently promoting their newest project, a mini-album called “The Blue, The First Memories,” which will be released on May 14.

 
Feeling OST – “느낌” (Feeling) by Hong Jae-sun. This is probably my favorite song from the OST.

Awww.... Lee Jung Jae was so super adorkable in Feelings!!
I remember I watched it after Air City (which essentially was the drama that drew me into his charms), and I went like WOAH, so this hot and handsome guy in Air City was a dork before? hahaha..

Feelings definitely gave me a good laugh... and I still remember Kim Jong Min as the stoic nerd...hehehehe..

i think lee jung-jae had his nose done. in his then pic, the rise of the bridge of his nose was below his eyes. in his now pic, the rise of the bridge of his nose is in the middle of his eyes.

amazing how such a slight reworking of the nose can do wonders in improving a face.

I love this drama. It is my first Korean crush. Time goes by so fast. All of them is about to be ajusshi. Wish all the kdrama could be good like this one. I still love watching it. They should have more family and youth themes like this. It's so boring to watch k-drama these days.

Me too! "Feelings" was the first K-drama I ever watched, and Lee Jung Jae was my first Korean celeb crush as well. I remember back in the day, discussing who was "your favorite brother?"...ahhh, memories.

Aw....they were all adorkable! :P Oh, the nostalgia!
Kim Min Jong was my first kdrama crush, not from Feelings but from another drama (or 미니시리즈, I should say)...but I can't remember the name of it.

When did this Sang Sang Plus 2 episode air?

Nostalgia brings waves of reality, I feel a little, tiny bit sad seeing things like this. Happy to see them around, sad that it has been 15 years since 느낌.

This seems to be ambivalence week.

YES! I LOVED this drama. And looking back, its such a contrast to the physique of leading men that korean drama features today. They don't look like pretty flower boys but real wholesome men!!!!

Haha, I just hunted down and downloaded this drama, like, three days ago. I plan to marathon it this weekend.. Very excited. :3

Question: Any chance you could upload the other songs on the OST? I could only find the ones you've uploaded on your blog in the past.. I can't find them ANYWHERE else. ㅠ_ㅠ

I remember watching this series overnight with my siblings haha (good thing we were on vacation). Lee Jung-jae was the best thing in it. I didn't like Kim Min-jong's character.. too stiff. I really liked the OST too.

Feelings is one of the first kdramas I have been seen and I still remember it so far. it's a lovely and sincere story about love and brotherhood.

Happily to see those pictures again, and I think that their reunion with warm memory and old songs with smooth melody is wonderfull although i don't understand about it meanings.
