A day on the set with Choi Jung-won

            Caption 1: Script rehearsal with Kim Ji-hoon, who plays the lead role of Won Kang-ha. Why are we lying on the bed next to each other? Well, should I call it sleep instinct? There’s no time to sleep except for the brief times when we’re on standby to film, so it’s become a habit to lie down right away whenever we see a comfortable spot. In the drama Ji-hoon-sshi and I have fired up a love connection, so will bed scenes become unnatural now? Here, let’s try our dialogue warmly, one more time.

 
The following is a pretty cute collection of photos and captions as IS Plus followed around actress Choi Jung-won for a day of filming on her currently running drama, Wish Upon a Star. The captions are written by Choi, who comments on little scenes caught over the course of the day.

Choi Jung-won: “You can’t think strange thoughts about us being on a bed”

Hello, Ilgan Sports readers, I’m Choi Jung-won. These days I’m busy looking after my siblings so I’m pretty overworked. I’m earning a living as the head of the household and assailed by the romantic attentions of handsome men, so things are hectic. (Laughs) More than anything, I feel a lot of attachment for Wish Upon a Star for allowing me to show a lot of sides to myself that I couldn’t show before. I’m so busy laughing, crying, and running around that I don’t have time to sleep. I’ll show you what my daily schedule is like on the set. Please enjoy.

Caption 2: I do my own basic makeup a lot of the time. There is a great makeup artist and a stylist who make me look good, but in the drama Pal-gang doesn’t wear a lot of makeup and I can get by with slight lip color, which is easy.

 

Caption 3: Here’s a shot with Wish Upon a Star’s cutie, youngest child Jin Nam played by Jae-hoon. Since I carry this kiddo around with me every episode, I’ve grown attached to him like he’s my own child. When the drama ends and I don’t see him anymore, I’ll be so sad. What’ll I do?
Caption 4: Confrontation is Pal-gang’s specialty. She’s developed this personality through trying to survive in this heartless world. This is the charm that the cold prince Won Kang-ha has also fallen for. When I’m acting and showing this outspoken side of Pal-gang, I get all worked up. Even though she’s scatterbrained, isn’t this cute woman likable?
Caption 5: Why am I having such trouble memorizing today? I’m practicing alone in the green room, into the mirror. I couldn’t sleep yesterday, and it feels like I’ve got short-term memory loss. Ah, I can’t film an NG, I’d feel so sorry… I’m in about 80% to 90% of every episode, so if I don’t want to cause trouble for the other actors, I have to work that much harder.

 

Caption 6: It’s the birthday for the hair and makeup stylist. I’m the unni, so I bought the cake myself. Even if the set is busy, at least we have to have this level of teamwork~. And they say age is just a number.

 

Caption 7: In the drama, another person who likes Pal-gang is the charming Shin Dong-wook, playing Won Jun-ha. He’s calm and has a soft presence, and is an appealing actor. I told him I was taking these self-shot pictures, and he put his arm around my shoulders without hesitation and gave his characteristic smile. Hey, if you do that it’ll make my heart thump~.

 

Caption 8: While the staff is setting up the lights for an outdoor shoot, I tried livening up the atmosphere. I’m the lead actress, so I should take the initiative and liven up the set a little, right? The lighting director in particular is my best friend on the set.

 

Caption 9: Thinking of the song “Les Parapluies de Cherbourg” (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg), I dance lightly! Well, aside from just moving my body around, it isn’t a proper dance. It may be because I’m wearing overalls for the first time in a long while, but I feel oddly lighthearted.

 

Caption 10: During a brief filming break, I sneak in with the lighting crew and chat with them. You have to get along with the staff for the set to be comfortable. In times like this, I should ask, “Is there anything that’s troubling you?”

 

Caption 11: I’m checking the monitor with Director Jung Hyo. Because the director points things out scrupulously, I can’t get away with doing anything half-heartedly. The director says, “See this? Something’s strange in this scene. Shall we try shooting from a greater distance?”

 

Caption 12: The director doesn’t know what I’m feeling on the inside and points with a bright expression at a location way in the distance. “Yes, Jung-won-sshi. You’ll run in from that hill over there. Come in at full speed…” I may be smiling in this picture, but I’m crying on the inside. Sigh~

This drama is one of my favorites of the moment.
The pictures look nice and that baby is just too cute, but my favorite picture must be the first one with Kang Ha (forgot his real name).

I cannot believe how one drama has changed my opinion of CJW so much, but I lo e hearing her real voice and personality shine through on this delightful BTS look at WUAS. Suddenly I'm reminded of why I loved WUAS so much in the first place. Keep up the good work to the entire team!

choi jung won is becoming more and more charming. i saw her in infamous chill sisters and boy was i annoyed with her - and sometimes her double eyelid can be distracting, but she sounds super nice and the pictures are so cheerful!!

i think the thing that would make me want to be an actress the most is the relationships and experiences on set. Have fun, cast and crew of WUAS!

Kim Ji Hoon is so handsome & photogenic!!! Even in scenes which shows him looking mortified, irritated, bored, intoxicated, sick, angry...even when he's throwing up...he looks GREAT!!! LOL!!! But more so, when he smiles!!!
Forgive my indulgence, guys!!! Of course, Gong Yoo is still my no.1...followed by Go Soo...but KJH is slowly becoming a close 3rd!!!

She said she only puts on 'lip color'? But it looks like she has a good amount of eyeliner on all the time...

One of my favorite scenes from this drama is when Kang-Ha tests the temperature of Nami's milk by drinking from the bottle. So funny.

Aww, this is so cute! She seems like such a sweet and fun person in real life, I hope she has a lot of fortune with her future dramas as well. :)

And I completely agree with her about Nam--I'd want to adopt him too! <3

Both CJW and Park Jin Hee are causing me to have girl crushes. They're both beautiful but not afraid to act "ugly"....... and nothing can make a person look uglier than those hideous overalls. Kudos to CJW for willing to wear them.

Oh what a wonderfully unexpected treat! This was a lot of fun to read! Have to agree, the first picture is the best (not that we're biased because of Kang-ha, or anything!) Thanks for sharing it, Javabeans! I seriously can't wait until Monday!

Cuteness overload...

I always wondered why never DID once people in the drama kiss Nami.

If it were me, i will smooch every single second on his cheeks. I can't stop kissing babies. They are just to adorable. But here in this drama never once I saw anyone kiss him.

Love CJW. She looks uber pretty in the white cloth.

This is what I like about Korean actors/actresses. They don't seem to be full of themselves no matter how famous they are! I mean, could you see Jennifer Anniston or some other lead American actress hanging out with the lighting crew?!
