News bites: May 26, 2008

  • Su Ae will have the distinction of being director Lee Joon Ik‘s first female lead actress after he made his name with male leads in The King and the Clown, Radio Star, and The Happy Life. In You’re Far Away [님은 먼곳에], she’s a woman who becomes a traveling performer during the Vietnam War in search of her husband who went off to serve. Shot in Thailand, the movie releases July 24.
  • In response to the audience’s issues with the CG in the recently premiered Iljimae, PD Lee Yong Seok admitted on Internet message boards that he had to “sacrifice realism” and use CG for actor and crew “safety.” Yes, because realistic plots and characterizations are so unsafe. He defended his use of the invisibility cloak, saying, “It might look awkward to adult eyes, but I figured that it would be a fun treat for young fans of Harry Potter.” What, no Quidditch?
  • Currently promoting Girl Scouts and filming her new drama When Night Comes, Kim Sun Ah has revealed that she’s no longer with her boyfriend from her Samsoon days. She explains wanting a boyfriend who can understand her job as an actor (or perhaps be one himself).
  • Crown J, enjoying a rise in popularity from the MBC variety show We Got Married, is pairing up with supa-star Jang Dong Gun in a Max Beer CF. Apparently they spent so much time filming Crown J that Jang Dong Gun joked, “Hey, what about me? I can do a good job too…”
  • Shinhwa singer Kim Dong Wan has considered appearing on We Got Married — if his partner can be Hwang Bo: “I think I’m the only person who can show her dual personality” (easygoing on the outside, but with an extremely feminine side). He joked that it’s something her partner on the show, Kim Hyun Joong, can’t pick up on due to his youth — but he can. Kim Dong Wan is currently promoting his second solo album.
  • A gay couple marries on cable channel tvN’s program Coming Out, which follows two gay couples who live together over seven episodes and records them as they plan their wedding. Aww. The program airs on May 26.

i always wonder what celebrities mean when they say want to date someone who "understands their job as an actor"... the scheduling constraints? constantly being in the public eye? the smooching onscreen with costars? i couldn't imagine it would be much fun dating one..

Really torn on Soo Ae. She has plus emotional gravity, but I think she still trips over her lines. She could be great. But the real question . . . anybody else think Soo Ae could pass as Younha's older sis?

@marcel,

On stars: Narcissism recognizes narcissism. :D Still pulling for Sun Ah though!

Wow, that picture of Su Ae is gorgeous! I've never seen her look so good.

Invisibility cloak? I can't wait to watch Iljimae. Harry Potter references are always entertaining.

Y'know, I've only seen the first episode of "Coming Out", but I quite liked it. It really touched me, and the bravery of these guests simply boggles my mind. Didn't know about the marriage thing. That's adorable. I should go find a download...

With all the bits and pieces of interviews with Kim Suna lately (both print and tv interviews) it was finally confirmed (coming from her at last) that's she's no longer with her boyfriend. SunBin fans must really really be happy. God! I never believed their speculations before. (i'm a Suna fan, not a Sun-Bin fan - more of a Soon-Shik fan if you know what I mean). I guess I should trust SunBin fans more ey.

@marcel,
Suna said (in the KBS2 interview) that her ex-boyfriend used to ask her what would happen if she had intimate scenes with another man and starting falling for him. so she's (maybe) trying to say she wants someone who can understand her profession and won't take it personally. and won't question her.

Well, if i'm the ex-boyfriend, i'd be jealous too. At that time, almost everyone in Korea (and on different countries as well) are all wishing that Suna and Hyun Bin will be a couple. All their "movements" on and off cam were being analyzed by fans and given a different meaning everywhere on the internet (in different languages at that - Korean, english, chinese, vietnamese, thai, tagalog, etc). Who woudn't be insecure?

But if the guy loves her, he would understand. And maybe that's the guy that Suna is looking for. Hopefully she'd be able to find that guy. and whoever is that guy, don't he dare ask Suna to quit acting! I'd hunt him down. ㅋㅋㅋ

Dongwan would be awesome with Hwang Bo! I never really liked her with the other guy! It just didn't seem right.

I wonder how accepting koreans are about gay people? Anyway, YAY for the gays!!!

I wouldn't mind at all if they put Dong Wan on the show. I love his sense of humor and his silliness. I'm sure he'll bring alot of laughter to the show. "We are married" is getting rather boring for me lately anyways. It's time for a cast change!

This is a coincidence!
I just started rewatching MNIKSS yesterday, and this news about KSA arises! lol.
It's a sign for the HyunBin-KimSunAh fans!
I hope there will still be as many loyal fans for this coupling when the SongHyeGyo-HyunBin coupling comes around. Cause I know I will be against this new coupling. lol. And I'm sure the BiGyo fans agree with this too. ^^

DongWan seems to have indirectly wanted to kick HyunJoong out of We Got Married. lol.

@belleza & alodia,

suna's had a lot of intimate scenes in her dramas & movies so i don't blame her BF for asking o_O but i would never want her to quit acting or be lonely & unhappy.. so maybe it's better if she keeps her love life "in the industry" ;) as for hyun bin, i would probably die of heartbreak if i ever heard of him hooking up or getting married :(
