Shin Eun-kyung and Kim Jung-tae star in new film

Shin Eun-kyung (Flames of Desire) will be making a comeback to the big screen opposite one of my favorite rising stars of late, Kim Jung-tae (Can’t Lose, Miss Ripley). I say rising not because he’s new, since Kim has been a supporting actor for many a moon, but because his star is rising only now — this will be his first leading role in a major film production to date. He’s certainly played his fair share of gangsters and funnymen and patsies, and now he’s graduated to romantic leading man, which is just the best news I’ve heard in a while.

The movie’s called Why She’s Different, and stars Shin Eun-kyung as a single mom. All the character information that’s given is that she has a secret, and raises her daughter alone. Kim Jung-tae is the one person who knows her secret. Yeah, but… is that good? Is it bad? Is he a confidant or an NSA agent, sent to hunt her down? Is she a thief? A princess in hiding? A vampire? A gumiho? The mother of a mixed race of humans and cylons? What? Okay, she’s probably not the last one. Probably.

I’m really excited for Kim Jung-tae. I hope this is just the beginning for his long career as a leading man. Who says ajusshis don’t rule? The man makes noodles, is a proud new dad, and has amazing screen presence. What more could you ask?

Why She’s Different starts shooting in November.

I seriously loved Kim Jung Tae in Can't Lose as a funny guy. Now I'm curious to see him as the romantic lead. Should be interesting!

Think his appearance in 1n2d raise his popularity. I could nvr see him as a gangster (in his movie) w/o those images of him making noodles in 1n2d.

Ohmygoodness, girlfriday. You've won me over even more, (if that's even possible). I mentioned BSG in Open Thread 209/210 (I just had to say "Frak"). Seeing somebody else say it on DB makes this human (and cylon wannabe) very, very happy!

I think this is the first time, someone in a supporting role with the gangster type roles have become a lead. And he is an ahjushi!! It is a little weird.. But i am happy for him. I think he will be pretty good, he is definitely a good actor.

The same happened to Lee Bum-soo, Kim Yun-suk, Im Chang-jung, Hwang Jung-min, Jung Jae-Young and maybe Lee Mun-shik, if we count TV roles.
Anyway i'm so happy all the ladies are back on big screen: Shin, Ko, and even Kim hee-ae is debuting!

I'm excited for Kim Jung-tae too! Wow, breaking the 2nd lead barrier in your ajusshi years? That's awesome! I hope her secret would be because she's a vampire queen from another galaxy far, far away in search of the secret of the universe in the center of the earth. I just wish it was a sci-fi. A romantic comedy sci-fi. Is that too much to ask?

By the way, I know this is super weird and I feel a little outgrouped right now for no reason, but what is a cylon? Is it some kind of teenage mutant ninja turtle? Just kidding. They live in New York.

Kim Jung Tae was great as a smarmy detective in H.I.T. and as the bad assed rogue spy in Killer K.

I think he has the screen presence and acting chops to take on a lead role.

Ahjusshi, congrats.

I just have to say this, Javabeans. As a newbie to the K-drama/film/pop land, when you write things like this, I get all smile-y and glow-y inside. All these new tidbits are fodder for my addiction and I will feed it happily. I haven't yet watched Can't Lose so I'm off to do that now...

the power of 1N2D. 1N2D launched careers. Sugeun, Seunggi, and Hodong are the best examples. no one even knew who Sugeun was back then, and in the earlier eps he was even bad at making jokes and was always being shot down by Saangryeol, but now he is more popular than Sangryeol.

Seunggi and Hodong were already popular, but 1N2D shot them to superstardom.

and now, a supporting actor for more than 10 years is finally getting his first ever big break thanks to this variety show. people undermine these shows but clearly variety can make you a star.

I love Shin Eun Kyung! I've missed her. I want her back on rom-com's. Could this be one? And really, like most DBers, I have come to love Kim Jung Tae and his noodle making ways. I can't wait to see this!

Really, Cylons? LOL.

Kim Jung Tae deserves the leading role after years of playing supporting role.,.. ahhh the power of 1N2D...I really think it helped his career tremendously...not that he hasn't worked hard all these years but it certainly helped him to become a known.

Have loved him ever since Swallow the Sun. Yup. I really, really liked him in Killer K. I so wanted a romance to materialize between him and Killer K's mom. That role had me looking at him as leading man material for the first time.

Damnn Kim Jung Tae as lead?! What a nice surprise! :) I love this! I'm quite excited for this movie because KJT is leading man. He's always been more of a side character (gangster, gangster....gangster lol). Then he played a badass ahjusshi in Girl K. Favorite characer btw<3 1 Night 2 Days has definitely helped him gain more recognition. Furthermore, Shin Eun Kyung is a great actress. This pairing seems awesome :) Can't wait!
