Jang Nara’s vacation photos

It’s been a while since we’ve heard about singer-actress Jang Nara (Sky and Ocean), who’s been busy in China and therefore out of the public eye back at home for long stretches of time. While there’s no news, exactly, this week she did upload a slew of new photos to her homepage, Nara Jjang, which show her vacationing in Jeju Island and in China.

Jang has been filming a Chinese drama recently, and after she wrapped that project, she headed to Jeju in early February, which she followed with a trip to Kunming in Yunnan, China. She’s currently spending time with family in Korea, and plans to return to China at the end of the month to begin filming a new Chinese drama and recording a new album.

It’s a little weird that Jang has faded so much from the Korean industry, considering how popular she was back in the early 2000’s in her Successful Story of a Bright Girl and My Love Patzzi days. Logistically speaking, I’m sure keeping active in one country is enough to keep a body plenty busy, and it seems she’s been very active over on the other side of the Yellow Sea. But now it seems she only resurfaces once in a blue moon before disappearing again for months (or years) at a time.

She’s also one of the actresses known for her perennially youthful face, along with Choi Kang-hee and Im Soo-jung. Hard to believe she turns 30 this month, isn’t it?

Wow. That first pic. She looks like a kid!

And the one with the ice cream, she kind looks like Go Ara there, without the eye color.

Jenga! Haha! Awesome!
They're amazing pictures. I'm glad she had some time off...I'm kinda jealous. I want time off too! :D

Thanks JB!

I was thinking on seeing those pictures, that if I didn't know this was Jang Nara ... she could pass off as one of the many China actresses out there. She certainly looks like some of my PRC friends.

Yes it's been ages. Park Yong-ha was kinda the same way --- he went off to Japan, and there was nothing about him for a long time.

It really is hard to believe that she is turning 30. I really don't think her face has changed at all! Wish we all could age liker her!

I actually never watched her dramas, though I've listened to some of her songs back in the days when she was singing. Maybe I'll give it a try...after I finish rewatching Dream High.

I was going to say something similar. She looks so young!! In all the pictures she looks about 20 (except for that first on when she looks about 10!!). I hope I look that good in 8 years... which is to say, exactly how I look now. Seriously.

Successful Story of a Bright Girl was the first Korean drama I ever watched, so it has a special place in my heart. I can't believe she's been traveling back and forth places as I once read she was afraid of flying in planes. (???) I hope she comes back and does a drama soon! (Not something horrible like Wedding, what a snooze fest...)

she suffered from acrophobia and pretty well had to use a mix of drugs [Chinese herbal and over the counter western] to knock herself out..pretty much a walking zombie at the airport. But she forced herself to over come it as best she can and fly more...when she first went to china she would not take a plane and took long hours by car to get any where but china just too big for that to work in the long run.

Me too, Bright Girl Success Story was first Kdrama ever watched, but first drama finished was her My Love Pattzi. Really wish she can make another Kdrama. Miss her comedic timing. And really her and Im Soo Jung look younger than 30 or can even be in their teens.

She made two pretty much on top of each other, plus a few endorsements in the odd half day she had free, as well as singing the OST for Unruly Qiao, thus the holiday break she been working nonstop for over three months.
Only Unruly Qiao been released as yet..and was well received when it aired..if you liked Bratty Princess you like Unruly Qiao as its considered pretty much a spin off from it. The drama she doing on her return to china is Bratty Princess part 2

I do not know if she 'looks' Chinese but it is interesting the she considered at best only pretty or cute in Korea but in China she quite the example of what girls want to look like.

Chinese is so diverse that it's hard to say there is a "Chinese"-look.

Northern and Southern Chinese already have distinct features and when you add in Western and Eastern Chinese along with those in Hong Kong and Taiwan you can essentially find any "Asian look" within that group.

She looks pretty and happy. Good for her! :-)

And I must say that I don't want her back in kdramas - I didn't like any drama I've seen with her in it (in fact it would be more accurate to say I intensely disliked them, though not because of her), and I don't like her style of acting.

try http://www.viki.com/channels/2595-iron-masked-singer
I think you find six years in china has only made her a better actress..and unlike her other drama this is quite dark..and certainly nothing like her comedy/romances she did in Korea.

i think people associate the age of 30 with an old-ish face too much. I mean, it's really normal to still look like you're in your early-mid 20s when you're 30. 30 isn't that old.

She been in the news a lot last year and all of this year. Her Sky and Ocean she won best foreign actress for in China as well as the film getting an award at a film festival in Europe with strong suggestion of open release in Europe at some time. She started making Masked Iron Singer tv drama late 2009...right after her scandal off Strong Heart and finish march 2010, it said she took the role as an answer to criticism of always playing the same role in her TV dramas, or what they really mean is she had always made light comdey/romance drama so the roles are similar. This drama very adult themed, dark and based off the movie Rebecca. From there she was busy on damage control from the Strong Heart scandal, where she lost almost all her endorsements and work, so 2010 was a rebuilding one, the one good side was that her every move was followed closely by the Chinese press so despite the bad slant to the stories they printed [something she no doubt is used to from Korean press] she was still very much in the public eye. Over the year she won back public support and the news stories begin to change from attack to neutral to open support for her. All through this she kept up her charity works and work as Culture Ambassador plus ambassador for the Korean pavilion at the huge Shanghai expo. Towards the last six month of the year she again started to get endorsement offers, a sure sign that most of the scandal damage was over, and signed up for three TV drama one after the other, the big one being part two of Bratty Princess series, that had been put on hold for so many years. The first was UNRULY QIAO, it been called a spin off to Bratty Princess and has many of the same elements and even actors, it been very well received in china rated number seven. Racecourse was her next project and was made the pretty much at the same time as UNRULY QIAO and brought her into 2011. This drama got a lot of interest because it has her acting with her father as father and daughter also the entire cast was asked to act in mainland chinese, so for the first time she would act in chinese. She is the supporting actress, that how she was able to do both dramas crossing over time wise, but again a first for her but the chance to act with her father was too much a chance to turn down. Though father and daughter pair in the end seem to get more attention than the two leads at lest from the mainland press, perhaps because the two lead where from Hong Kong. And after her holiday..and it was family and staff..no boyfriend in view, as always,,:-) she heading back to start Bratty Princess 2.
She has mention a 'maybe' on a Korean drama end of this year but nothing else. This year is also her Tenth since her debut as a singer back in 2001 so she well also have a new album out this year.
She done a lot of other things..just as javabeans say china like another world, is just such a huge place and population that unless you look for information about what is going on there, you know nothing.
there been two wedding shoots one in japan one in korea that also got a lot of attention she also returned to Korea for her friends wedding and the funeral of that famous fashion designer she did a catwalk for in china...she sponsored a trip to china for a korean mentally handicapped classic band..and so on. Really she always in the news..you just have to know..and be interested enough to look for it....:-)
