Song Joong-ki romances Han Ye-seul on the big screen

Sungkyunkwan Scandal’s fashionista Song Joong-ki is heading to the big screen for a rom-com movie, in which he romances Han Ye-seul (Will It Snow For Christmas?). Funny that she’s the noona now, when he was the oppa in Christmas — albeit in the past, so they never actually shared scenes. Also — is it weird that they played siblings in that drama?

The movie is titled 태어나긴 했지만, which means Although I Was Born or Despite Being Born. Song Joong-ki is currently working out the final details of the contract, and plays a guy who’s been unemployed for a while who then decides upon a dream to pursue. He matures as he meets Han, a woman who is only described as a persevering type.

Hm. Not much to go on with that description, but since it’s Song Joong-ki in a romantic comedy, I’m in. He’s fantastic at bringing playful, good-humored characters to life (as we saw in Sungkyunkwan and Triple), but he’s just as good being caring and warm-hearted (as we saw in Will It Snow For Christmas?).

It’s been a year since Song’s last movie (the adorable puppy movie Heart Is 2), and three since Han’s last (the flawed but easy-to-watch Miss Gold Digger). The director is Kim Jung-hwan, who seems to specialize in youth-oriented material; he worked on the high school series Sharp as well as the two Jungle Fish projects.

The movie plans to begin filming early next year.

-Yes, but since it's SJK, I can push that to the back of my mind.

Gah, wish I could take a trip to Korea just to see this movie. Weird though, that Han Ye-seul has been cast in it, what happened with the You're My Pet movie?

how I wish this would be in cinemas when I return for a visit too! but I'll have another problem... unless they show it with Enlish subtitles, I won't be able to understand it. :( All that I'd be able to do is read body languages, make the most with my v. limited Korean vocab, and ogle at SJK. :D

Isn't that movie being pushed til 2011? I thought LSG would star in the role and film after he finished MSOAN. But I'm kinda behind in news, so I'm not sure if this is correct or if Han is still in (which, I very much hope to be true).

ditto....I was really excited by the "Kimi wa petto" project, but no information since march (I think)....
But now, JGS has already moved on, and HYS as well...
By chance, if anyone has any info about "Kimi petto", I'd like to know what's going on with that project....

oh yes, i will watch anything with SJK in it. although he and HYS did play siblings in WISFC, they never really interacted with each other, so i don't think it will be weird at all. and i kinda have a soft spot for HSY, who was totally kickass in Fantasy Couple (though not so much in WISFC, sigh), so, yeh, i think this movie's got the potential to be awesome.

Song Joong Ki...... :) :D XD

For WISFC, I still ,till now, wonder why & how his character die. I only knew he jump to that river and next he dies.

How does that happen? he can not swim? but his face looks like he's so sure he can swim when he jump to that river without worried at all. he can swim but he has been swept away by the river stream? he can swim but he get muscle strain or asthma attack or something when he's in the water so he's drowned? he is trying to kill him self? but his character doesn't look like having tendency to go that way. he loves her sister so much so he think that it is ok if he dies?

i wanted to watch Obs&Gyn Doctors for him, but I'm allergic to medical theme drama. I couldn't stand it, sorry Joong Ki....I'll definitely watch your movie when its dvd is out

realized recently he probably IS the most manly/macho (his "translated" words, not mine) of the 4..err..3 Jalgeum 4. so had to reinforce my adoring for him and stalked his show. good thing Running Man is a prized catch! love it! so funny! true personality-wise, i think he comes closest to guys i like! ^^ (among the 3)

though i have to admit, when i look at yoo ah in, it's just..he's irresistable! i've always liked the dark, brooding type better :)

are the fans in seoul really like that when they see their idol on the street? did you see the ppl up in the buildings straining their necks to catch a vision of gu-yongha/so joongki?

did you see how naughty and sassy this boy so joongki is? that's why all the guys watching him steal a kiss from the unsuspecting girl in the train were so flabbergasted! they wish they could be as bold as him, haha! :-)

is this an instant reunion, or what? :D

"are the fans in seoul really like that when they see their idol on the street?"

I'm not sure... but I think that's how most people in other countries do when a major celeb goes out in the street... except for Hollywood, maybe where most people seem to be immune to their presence. I think the same effect can be achieved if Daniel Radcliffe walks at any street these days. What I'm amused about is how the Korean fans gravitate in mass towards a celebrity and then cover their faces in front of the camera. They're eager to get close and yet, their being conservative/shy still goes into play. Like for example those quick hugs. The fans pull away first! :D I guess they're not yet as crazed as fans from other countries. LOL.

"they wish they could be as bold as him, haha!"

oh, I think they wish they were the girl! :D

"how’s everything with you, guys?"

still laboring on that blog. :) and prepping for a 3-week (starting friday) vay-kay in my hometown. I'd probably be on hiatus for the time being, since Internet connection ain't that fantastic o'er there. :) so I'm downloading kdramas to watch while I'm away. ;)

btw, I saw a shipment of Tamra The Island tapes that arrived in our media library. they're still for subbing. I so want to appeal to management to buy SKKS...

how about you, guys? :) wassup?

yea, izzie... i think we are due for a reunion, hahaha!

thought the koreans are more restrained when it comes to these things so was amazed that they are squealing away like there's no tomorrow..and yet covering their faces so mum who might be watching from home will not recognize them, hehe...

yea, daniel radcliffe and robert pattinson might get the same squeal-frenzy from the American fans :-) i know the girls here would not think twice if they found themselves beside these two on the street :-)

haha! they wish they were in the girl's shoes...perish the thought! haha!

wow! 3 weeks vacation...without internet connection. that might be good ;-) respite from all the kdrama craziness :-) wish u d best vacs ever!!! hope to get a glimpse of your travel blog when u come back! ;-) can't wait ;-)

and what kdramas do u plan to watch on yr vacs?

tamra the island..hmmm..yes! better if they chose SKKS! you should've pulled some strings at work and made them choose SKKS instead hahaha! just showed tonight the last episode of SKKS over at the KBSworld cable channel. Of course, I cant help but watch it again! hahaha! as if i cant watch it over the internet anytime i wanted hehe...

been busy with business and volunteer work with the kids so did not have much time to visit dramabeans lately or watch any kdramas. but last night i had time to watch SG episodes 7 and 8 with eng subs..finally! :-) it was fun -- had lotsa laughs but still not the same as SKKS :-) (sorry SG fans out there...) any new work coming from the SKKS writer?...im interested! ;-)

"and what kdramas do u plan to watch on yr vacs?"

- SKKS (of course. :D )
- My GF is a Gumiho
- Personal Preference (replay)
- Coffee Prince (replay) ;)
- Secret Garden (replay) ;)

besides (re)watching kdramas, I plan on going around rediscovering my town thru my camera lens, and do some macro photography in my Mom's garden. :) ... which is also in a way a secret garden, cuz she had it fenced in to keep the backyard chicken out. :D it's gonna be fun! (barring i switch bodies with a frog princess. :D )

wow! you're so busy and yet you find time to help people in need. :) that's so wonderful of you! may your big heart be blessed this Christmas! :)

re: Tamra/SKKS... been itchin' to send that e-mail y'know... ;) if they need further proof... I got downloaded videos. ;)

LOL! major LIKE on the latest episodes of SG... they've switched back and still keeping the 'funny' alive. :)

izzie...great line-up there. have not watched pp and mgiag yet so maybe should check that out next time.

i'm so looking forward to yr travel blog...including yr photos of yr mom's (secret) garden! ;-) wow! but be careful with old men masquerading as old ladies and their suspicious potions...

i think you should show yr bosses the results of the 2010 beanie awards here where SKKS run away with most of the categories ;-) that should silence all doubters as to SKKS phenomena (btw, i checked it out again last night and yoochun in the best use of an idol category was now edged by PK lead! how can that be? and KHJ is also leading in the worst use of an idol category...conflicting eh?)

i breezed through dramabeans recap of episodes 9 and 10 of SG and you're right....looks like there is more fun to expect from the two funnies!

"yoochun in the best use of an idol category was now edged by PK lead! how can that be? and KHJ is also leading in the worst use of an idol category…conflicting eh?"

oh well, it's the doing of KHJ fans. Acting-wise, of course the robot-like performance doesn't deserve that recognition. But in terms of marketing... yeah. KHJ's popularity served its purpose very well. (have you heard about the Seung-jo photo diary with free mug available in the market? ahaha!) It's also funny how the KHJ fans were taking the Beanies so seriously! :D

re: Beanie Awards, I think they should have put "Best On-Screen Best Friend" there. :D I'd vote for Yeorim. :D
I've nicknamed the SKKS boys Grey's Anatomy-style:

New information, about the movie!
In a new RomCom movie, that is.

Actor Song Joong Ki and actress Han Ye Seul have been casted for the upcoming movie, ‘Despite Being Born‘.

The movie is a romantic comedy about two unemployed people who are struggling to obtain 200 million won.

Song Joong Ki plays ‘Jun Ji Woong’, a role that is completely different from his usual ‘flower boy’ characters. Jun Ji Woong is a college graduate who still needs to borrow money from his mother. Because he is 50 won short, he couldn’t even have a date with his girlfriend.

On the flipside, Han Ye Seul plays ‘Hong Sil’, whose purpose in life is to earn money. She makes use of used bottles and newspapers, and is so cheap that she won’t even go to the hospital.

This movie will be directed by Kim Jung Hwan, and will start filming around February of next year. Stay tuned to allkpop OMONA for additional details!

as seen on omona! they didn't
