Moon Chae-won promises more smiles in My Fair Lady

I know it seems like most of the attention for My Fair Lady is squarely focused on the three main leads, leaving out fourth wheel Moon Chae-won, but she’s not really being overlooked in the greater scheme of things. (I do think her presence in the story is markedly less important than the other three, however, which makes her more of a second-tier character thus far.) Here’s an interview with the rising star:

“I want to show my smile more often”

This is a golden time for Moon Chae-won — dramas, advertisements. She has to smile broadly at the feeling that she’s hitting one home run after another.

Following the popular SBS Brilliant Legacy, which drew in ratings surpassing 40%, her recent drama My Fair Lady also feels like it’s headed for success. Furthermore, she is pleased to be acting the character of “Yeo Eui-joo,” which is a role that suits her perfectly.

She says, “The Eui-joo character is like a blood sister to the drama’s main character Seo Dong-chan (Yoon Sang-hyun). She’s the one friend or younger sibling everyone ought to have, who has a bright personality even as she is also tenacious. She’s similar to me.” Until now, she’s mostly played calm, composed characters in dramas like SBS’s Painter of the Wind and Brilliant Legacy, and there are big expectations for her to show a cheery personality that viewers sympathize with. That’s why she chose to do another drama right after Brilliant Legacy ended, without taking a break.

Moon Chae-won says, “So far, I’ve played characters who have been hurt a lot, so I haven’t been able to smile much. This time, Eui-joo is a bright girl who I think will be able to laugh a lot. I’d like to show my smiling expression often.” When she filmed Painter of the Wind and Brilliant Legacy, whenever the cameras were turned away from her, she was always laughing loudly and chatting with her co-stars like Moon Geun-young and Han Hyo-joo, but she was never able to show that side onscreen.

In My Fair Lady, she comes out as an aspiring shoe designer. Perhaps it’s because Moon is actually majoring in art at university that she explains with confidence, “I feel familiar with the profession. I think I’ll be able to act naturally in the scenes when I am sketching and designing.”

She is also being treated as something of a “blue chip” in dramas and now also advertisements. Following Brilliant Legacy, it was dermatological cosmetics line Dr. Jart. With her selection as model for womenswear brand Sally, she is poised to become the next-generation CF queen. Moon Chae-won is enjoying herself to the fullest: “This summer, I’m either shooting for a drama or an advertisement every day without rest. Last weekend I didn’t have to film for the drama so I shot an ad instead. I can’t even think of taking some personal time. Thanks to that, I’m not even aware of the summer heat and I’m passing the time busily.”

She's really lucky
She was in painter of the wind, brilliant legacy and now lady castle. And they were all very good dramas. Well Lady Castle looks like a good drama. I'm starting to really like her.

I think Moon Chae-won is a beautiful woman and she has a great smile so I'm glad she gets to show it more in My Fair Lady. I haven't seen any episodes of this drama yet but I plan on watching it sooner or later. And Moon Chae-won is the only reason why I'll watch it :)

Yes, Moon Chae-won and her pretty smile deserve more screen time.

I think her next drama should be one in which she plays the lead. I like her and think she has definite potential.

I like My Fair Lady so far - the lead male's voice annoys me a bit but it's a light, funny drama. So far, I like Moon Chae-won's character too, so I'm looking forward to seeing more of her. Does anyone know where to find episode 3? Doesn't have to be subbed.

Thanks, Javabeans!

she was good in Brilliant Legacy, albeit some of her facial expressions got really annoying, maybe cause all she was doing was whining or crying, so therefore, I'm looking forward to seeing her be happy and doing playing a more positive character....

Shen, which search term did you use? I tried "My Fair Lady Episode 3," "Take Care of Agasshi Episode 3," "Lady Castle Episode 3," "Take Care of the Lady Episode 3" and none worked. Do you have the link? Thanks!

@Molly, you can look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLug74b_Nhs for episode three.. the title name is strange though lol... i think they do that purposely for copyright issues or something of that nature?

I was also happy that she got a different role than her shining inheritance one since I really got annoyed whenever she came on screen, mostly due to the character she was playing. And she's sort of ditzy and funny in this role, its sort of cute ^_^

@engl, I was assuming the same thing since I also watch Friends on YouTube and although it's easier to find, occasionally there are funny names to keep the YouTube people from taking it down. Thanks so much! :)

Yay, epi. 3 of MFL is the 1st rank drama in the same timeslot (beating out Swallow the Sun)

TNS:
National - 4th // 16.4 (1st in the time slot)
Seoul - 5th // 16.9

AGB:
National - 6th // 14.3 (2nd in the time slot)
Seoul - 6th // 14.9

Although it has been declining ever since the first ep's ratings, it's actually went up by 0.1% from the last ep.

Go..go..go MFL

She is quite the interesting character in My Fair Lady. I'm looking forward to what else she'll bring to the table to the lead casts.

Thanks for posting!

Hooray for MCH! She really has a lot of potential for acting and I LOVED her in Brilliant Legacy, she portrays the roles of her character very well.

Hope to see her more often in the future xD!

Oh please do show your smile more often Moon Chae Won!
IT MAKES ME MELT.

Then again, I really have no interest in My Fair Lady. I will watch Brilliant Legacy some day, though.

She did do a good job in Brilliant Legacy. I personally thought her role was more difficult to play than HHJ's. Looking forward to her acting (and happy face) in My Fair Lady.

I sorta lost interest in MFL, but it should be fun, so I may watch it later. She was pretty good in BL, and actually so pretty it got really distracting. She's totally doing the Genie dance in that last pic, heh.

she's an actress with potential but i don't really like her personality as i saw on talk shows - she seems to do the fake cutesy tee hee routine a lot and it seems like her real personality is different. idk, not too fond of her
