Never say she didn’t suffer for her art

If you notice something strange about Lee Hana‘s appearance in the upcoming finale of her drama Women in the Sun, it’s because was recently hurt while filming. Furthermore, the injury was to her face — underneath her eye, to be exact.

A scene shot on the 27th involved one character attempting to block another from wresting money away, and the shopping bag containing the money ended up scraping Lee Hana’s face. It doesn’t sound like a dire injury — although a young actress’s value is often, unfortunately, inextricably linked to the unmarred condition of her good looks — but she was whisked away to a hospital where she received emergency care. With the end of the series approaching, she continued filming despite the fact that the injury hasn’t yet healed and is still visible.

KBS’s Women in the Sun had started out in a distant second place to SBS’s more popular Iljimae, but has been steadily climbing in the ratings. With much of the praise directed toward Lee Hana for her strong performance, the series looks to wrap up this week with ratings projected in the above-20% range, or close to it (Iljimae wrapped last week, while the newer Lawyers of Korea has been struggling in third place; perhaps things will perk up for that series with its competition out of the way).

I've been wondering...Javabeans, have you seen "Lawyers of Korea"? Is it any good, despite the potential for cliches? ^^

I think Women in the Sun may be the best performing KBS2 show in almost 2 years. Even though Iljimae's last week ended with 27 and 31 ratings, WiS still managed 20s in the same slot. This after starting out with <9 scores during its first week.

Looking at the synopsis for Lawyers in Korea, it might have been a better fit for the weekend slot.

I found "Lawyers of Korea" to be entertaining, particularly because of Lee Sung Jae and Roo Soo Young's characters (+ some of the secondary characters), but I can't say that I love the lead (Lee Soo Kyung). However, I believe that could just be my personal hang-ups with her surfacing.

I tried to watch "Women in the Sun" and continue to catch glimpses/clips of the show, as my parents seem to enjoy it, but the scary mother (played by Jung Ae Ri) is just too prominent a character---I can't bear watching her, she gives me the chills!

Ouch. Accidents on set seem to be occuring quite often lately. I wonder how they're going to cover the injury. Put a bandaid under her eye? (I also noticed in the last couple episodes of 3 dads 1 mom, Jo Hyun Jae also had a bandaid under his eye. Did he hurt himself like Lee Hana?) But hopefully it wont leave a scar. An actresses' face is extremely important to her (and others).

Lawyers of Korea seems awfully underrated. I didn't even realized it started airing until someone told me. Can't wait for you to do caps on it. :)

oh no! i really like lee hana.. hope she recovers soon! i watch women in the sun only because it's so melodramatic it's funny. can understand why the older generation'd love it though.. it has a very 90s' plot - good gets trodden on by bad, but eventually triumphs. love it when kim ji soo gives her evil eyes and no one else notices hehe.

the first two episodes of lawyers were pretty good. and unlike jippo, i think lee soo kyung's the best thing the drama has to offer. she's so adorable! can't say i really like the idea of lee sung jae ending up with her.. hmm.

Yay! Looking forward to recaps too.

I've been looking for something new to watch, but have been too busy lately. I've been pondering about "Women in the Sun" ever since I've heard that it's classic melodrama, as stated by Bird. But strong acting? Sounds a lot better than the horrors I've had the time to recently view[Prince Caspian, totally unrelated].

Back to the topic: At least she didn't injure her eye!

"But strong acting? Sounds a lot better than the horrors I’ve had the time to recently view"

Producers did a terrific job casting the three main women of the show. For the most part, the characters are able to dial down the histrionics so it rarely feels like camp. Ji Soo, known for her elegant woman image, was an announcer for Entertainment Relay. Ji Soo plays an Evil (and yet miserable) version of Oprah, and to her credit, she's almost sympathetic. Jung Ae Ri is always playing suffering mother types; here she plays a chilling variation of it. Her character isn't a shrill, abusive stepmother; yet the looks she gives her adopted daughter will make your blood freeze.

Kang Ji Sub is great in a "OMG he's doing an impression of Jang Dong Gun from Friend." Like, it's almost fanboy the way he's gotten down the accent. I hope Binnie is half as entertaining as this guy! :D
