Moon Chae-won turns icy for Nice Guy

Following up our first look at Nice Guy with stills of leading man Song Joong-ki, now we have leading lady Moon Chae-won, shedding her image of youthful innocence to play a mean woman who’s described as possessing a “heart of ice.”

Hm, at all this while I was thinking she was the victim in this melodrama, since Song Joong-ki—a former nice guy turned player and manipulator—uses her to get back at his ex, Park Shi-yeon. Plus, there’s the whole part where she has amnesia, adding to the woe-is-this-damsel-in-distress profile—since when is the heroine in a romance melodrama with amnesia NOT the sweet, nice doormat? I guess Nice Guy isn’t your mother’s amnesia-revenge-melo, which you wouldn’t think would have enough titles to be its own genre but by now has pretty much set up a corner in dramaland to claim for its own.

Moon Chae-won plays Eun-ki, the daughter to a chaebol group executive. Contrary to the image of most chaebol heiresses being pampered, this character has been groomed from early childhood to take over the company and is no spoiled princess. Well, I suppose she may be spoiled in the sense of privileged, but not in the sense of being coddled and sheltered. Thanks to that upbringing, Eun-ki sees the entire world as an enemy to be governed and has grown up keeping her emotions under tight control: “the coldest woman in the world.”

However, Eun-ki starts to feel the stirrings of love for the first time when she meets Maru (Song Joong-ki), and as she falls in love with him, her other side comes out. All while he’s using her as revenge tool. Eek, this cannot end well.

With this writer—Lee Kyung-hee of Will It Snow For Christmas and I’m Sorry, I Love You, among other tearjerkers—I don’t doubt we’re in for a hell of an emotional roller coaster. Even if we get an ending that isn’t all doom and gloom and death (as in Christmas), I still foresee tons of tears and gnashing of teeth along the way. However, lest that description scare you off entirely, writer Lee does have a nice touch with character moments and strong relationships; you might be heartbroken over the pain your characters go through, but you might also like it. Funny how dramas can make sadists out of even the most peace-loving bunch.

Nice Guy follows Gaksital and premieres in September.

Hmm. Now her character sounds interesting. There are all these older women in dramas who are running corporations, and I always wondered how the "pampered chaebol heiresses" turned into these women. I don't think I will be able to take this much angst during the begining of the semester, but I am hoping for recaps. Somebody? Pretty Please?

I'm really stoked for this one. Though the plot isn't anything new, I've always been drawn to such premise. Maybe it's just me, but I'm a huge sucker for angst. Hihi such a masochist, eh?

Moon Chae Won looks stunning! It would be truly refreshing to see her in such role. Being the exceptional actress that she is, I'm sure she'll do a stellar job. She's one of the few actresses who could go all angelic and innocent one minute then turn into a feisty and fierce vixen the next. That, for me, is the mark of a true actress.

Is it strange that by purely reading this article, I'm already anticipating and excited for the episode where she finds out she is being used ?!! lol.
I don't do angst dramas and was initially drawn to this purely because of Song Joong Ki & Lee Kwang Soo [Same-age friends ^^] but from what I've read and the pictures I've seen so far, I'm already on board for this roller-coaster ride of love & deception.

jo anna was whacky, this is a melo.These days whenever I think of an amnesiac I think of go hyun jung's character sitting in a corner of her bedroom after she has been released from prison in sandglass. there's just something closed and traumatic about that pose. I think it has the true anger, frustration and hopelessness an amnesiac must feel, versus the led by the nose-ring types we usually see. Maybe those girls are the ones that actually have therapy.

Oh noes, but Maru is supposed to love boxes and be cute and cuddly, not lie to women! Alright, sorry, I just *had* to make a Maru The Cat joke here. Also, is there a competition for the title of the coldest woman in k-drama 2012? If there isn't, I'm not sure why we're seeing so many ice cold women these days (unless you get a free Tae Kang for being cold, which would explain everything).

I was already in because of Joong Ki and the writer. But when they added MCW I was on fire. Love this girl so f*cking much. She is turning into a wonderful actress and growing with each role. Her real life vibe is also impecable, never a show off and only gets in the headlines for her roles. She is not in Im Soo Jung's level as a protagonist in MISA, but, hopefully, she'll make her spot memorable. *Crossing fingers for this to be good*

I'm really surprised to hear you guys say that you find MCW's real life persona to be modest and likeable. I haven't been able to like her in anything since I saw her appearance on the Shining Inheritance special where she openly said she thought she was better looking than the lead actress in front of the entire cast with ZERO shame.

Well, in fact she and the lead actress, HHJ is a very good friend in real life, so she couldn't be bad as what you interpret her to be. She always make good friends with those who works with her, especially the female co-stars :). One can't judge a person's personality by one or two clips.

Everyone may interpreted differently about her answer in the special which was back in 2009. But the mot point is, she and the female lead is best friend even up till now. If one follow her closely enough, it isn't difficult at all to understand why the above posters said that she is modest. By the way, let's not turn this to be an ugly discussion.

Well, it wasn't just that particular answer of hers that got my goat. From what I recall, it was also her mannerisms and overall demeanour through out the show which left me with the distinct impression that she thought very highly of herself and had a serious case of gong-ju byung (the Korean 'princess disease').

Everyone has their own tastes and reasons for liking or disliking things/people/whatever. It's highly unlikely that inferences made through a few soundbytes here and there (with possibly some things lost in translation- literally or culturally) or an extrapolation based on these snippets could amount to an accurate portrayal of her real-life personality whether they be negative or positive.

If she happened to be nervous on the day and the appearance on the special wasn't an accurate representation of her actual character (which, of course, is more than possible) then it's a shame but my personal dislike of her, whether you think it irrational or unfounded, stands because I have yet to see otherwise. I was merely expressing surprise at being met with viewpoints which were diametrically opposed to my own perception of the show and can't really see how it could've been taken as an assault on your opinions of MCW or an attempt at provoking an "ugly discussion"

Yes. You are right aboutnone thing. That BL's Special wasn't an accurate representation ofnher actual character.. very far from it. She was very nervous in that Special. Maybe you could try to watch her other clips e.g. BTS clips from TPM or fancams where you could really see the real her when she feels at ease and relaxed. Can someone with princess attitude can make good friends with all of her co-stars? especially for females? and become best friends with some of them? I hardly think so.

0

correction, I mean.. you are right about one thing.

0

She was in no way offensive in that one appearance so I find it a bit harsh to dislike her for that and have that dislike carry over. Thinking she has a princess syndrome is just reading too much into it, and yes, it is a bit irrational.

0

Sue: if I may add, yes. It is a bit irrational for judging someone's character based on one show which was 3 years ago, when she was practically a newbies with little experience. It is unfair for her as well. She is always well liked by the productions crew also and it showed from the The Princess' Man BTS clips.

0

Seriously?

@azzures
Don't really see why I should go out of my way to hunt down favorable BTS clips of an actress I already don't particularly like to appease you or other complete strangers I've randomly come across on the internet.

Why should it bother you so much that I don't like her? How does my disliking of her even affect you? Do you have shares in her agency? Are you working for her PR firm? Have you met or do you personally know MCW that you can be so sure of her true personality?

So, according to you, I'm right about just ONE thing-- that maybe she was nervous during the special-- but everything else I said above is apparently wrong, even the portion where I say everyone makes generalizations and projects their own desires and ideas onto celebrities based on a few snippets of VT or agency vetted images (including you) and how that can in no way be an accurate or reliable barometer of anyone's true self. Also, the section about how different people like/dislike different things for their own reasons is wrong? Why do you feel it's in any way appropriate for you to infringe on my personal freedom or dictate to me what my likes and dislikes should be?

Let's exercise some common sense, here. Example, name a food you do not like. Why do you not like it? But *I* think it's DELICIOUS! It's so tasty and GOOD FOR YOU TOO. Everyone else agrees-- YOU obviously haven't given it a fair chance. That's just irrational and you are small minded. YOU ARE WRONG FOR NOT LIKING THIS FOOD EVERYONE ELSE SEEMS TO LIKE. Get the picture?

@Sue
You may think it unfair, but it's my prerogative to like or dislike whomever I choose. I don't see why I should be berated for having an opinion of a persona of a celebrity. Getting het up over 1 person on the internet who dislikes a celebrity you have never met or will personally know is also a bit irrational, don't you think? I respect your right to like MCW as much as you please, please respect my right to dislike her.

0

spjork,

I'm not getting heated up though, and neither am I berating you. I'm just pointing out it is indeed irrational, to dislike someone so much as to not think it possible that ANYONE could possibly like them. That's the glaring point I'm curious about, and what prompted my response, that you don't (or didn't, as implied in your first post) understand that anyone could possibly like her.

Everyone is responding to your post because you seemed so aghast at our opinions. It begged for the reasons to why we do find her likable. And so we're giving you the answers. You shouldn't be surprised by these comments, and neither should you be offended by them. No on is attacking you. I said your reasoning is not sound, but I'm not calling you names, if you feel I'm berating you, then you're taking it a little too personally.

This is the part where I may be berating you, but I have to point it out for the sake of the argument. Being so judgmental and quick to assume the worst in others are also not such great qualities. In fact, they're worst because they actually do harm towards others. It's a bit hypocritical then that you should have so much against her for what you perceive to be a poor aspect of her personality.

For the few instances where you've found her to be impersonable, there are actually many many more where she comes across extremely sweet and down to earth. But it seems you're selectively ignored those instances in forming your judgement. But the rest of us have seen her in these many instances and from them have formed a favorable impression of her. That's why we have the opinion that she is very likable, and yes, quite modest.

It's clear you've formed your opinion and have no intentions to make any effort in changing it. I'm not trying to change it. I'm just calling it like it is, a bit unreasonable. You're telling us you don't like her and why. The rest of us are telling you we like her and why. You're welcome to feel that way you do, but hopefully now you have some answers as to why others do actually like her. So you won't be so surprised in the future.

I saw that special and she was in not way boasting or putting HHJ down. They were both asked who they thought was prettier. HHJ jumped in first and confidently answered MCW. MCW accepted it. Why should she be ashamed about not denying it. They are good friends IRL and it shows how uncatty they are when being pretty or prettier is not a big deal to either of them. No shame in that.

You're welcome. It was an awkward question to ask anyway, but they answered honestly, not trying to fake modesty, and that was nice for a change. MCW IRL is not a boastful or showy person. She's not fake either. Neither is HHJ. That's probably why they get on so well, they both have very good personalities.

I don't remember that she said what you mentioned. All I can recall is that MC asks HHJ&MCW that who's the most beauty among them. HHJ points at MCW as if said that she's more beautiful than her while MCW looks nervous and say nothing. I think she still can't decide though LOL. And what's wrong with that coz they're both beautiful in their own way.

MGY, HHJ and SYJ are her best friends to date and HHJ said that MCW's down to earth which is quite opposite with her elegant image. She's probably not full of herself like you try to convey.

And I've read somewhere that they mellowed down the clothing styles here. Meaning the cast will just wear how normal people in the normal world wear - powerful yet sophisticated but not over the top, as if they're selling each item they wear. And I think that's good.

MCW really knows how to challenge herself. I hope she pulls out the fiercest Chae Won she has inside her to give justice to the character.

Again, I am still worried with the "mellow" theme of the series. I am really hoping that this don't have a lousy plot. That's a total turn off for me even if I really like the cast.

Oh yes, that happened with Big. They've wasted the great cast they had. Such a shame.

But The Princess Man is not just any sangeuk. It is one of the most romantic dramas out there. You should really give it a chance. I started out like you hating sangeuks and a Romeo-Juliet weapfest but the drama become my all time #1. The story has history, but the romance is the main premise. Moon Chae Won is phenomenal in it.

TPM is definitely a very romantic sageul drama and MCW's Se-Ryung is also one of my all favorite heroines.

I super agree. TPM is not just any sageuk, but one of the best love story ever written. I loved MCW strong-willed character just like Ha Ji-won in K2H, something that not very common in kdramaland where heroines are mostly played as stupid doormat with ugly looking hair/outfit.

@Jaynes: I have given TPM a shot before.

@zhill: Just based on you comparing MCW's character to my favourite heroine Hang-ah from my beloved TK2H I will give this drama another try. Thanks!!

0

@BB In the beginning, Seryung is just a curious, sheltered character who falls in love. Her true persona emerges around episode 8 and on, when she has something to protect from her father. Seriously her ideals, values, beliefs and the understated way she defies the villians in the drama is cheer-worthy. @zhill is so right..when I watched K2H I was reminded of MCW's character in the Princess Man. Just like Hang-ah, MCW's character is the one who saves the hero continuously.

0

I have to agree, TPM is one of my favorite sangeuk dramas. Before TPM, I really liked Ja Myong Go - another "romeo and juliet" type of story, but it had a really disappointing ending because it was cut short due to low ratings. TPM came along and it was everything that JMG was missing. In addition PSH and MCW had awesome chemistry. This was a great role for MCW to really show that she had good acting skills.

Really looking forward to Nice Guy. I love revenge dramas because they usually are intense and have twists and turns in the storyline. Plus the cast is awesome! Can't wait!

TPM was one of the best K-dramas last year. It's nothing like TWDR. TPM is more about love story between two lovers than politic. You really should give that drama a try..or else, you don't know what you've missed.. a great drama :)

MCW was so expressive in this role, I don't know how you can say she had few expressions or liken her to HGI. Trying to imagine it and still I can't see how their acting can be likened. It just doesn't compute. MCW was so great in TPM, so far from just a few expressions, so many scenes that blew me away.

I agree. They are not even comparable. MCW blew me away with her intensity, desperation, and fierceness. And OMG boy does she have chemistry with all her co-stars. PSH and MCW's chemistry was my absolute favorite, very deserving of the title "Korean Romeo and Juliet," but excluding that amazingness MCW had chemistry with Jung Il Woo, Lee Seung Gi, and even Moon Geun Young LOL (they won the best couple award--first female-female couple). HGI's chemistry with KSH was BLEH.

0

It still amazed me reading a few comments about her lack of expressions. Very different opinion compare to mine and seems like we watched two different dramas. It's ok for those who can't get the acting..but it's just funny to compare it with HGI in TMETS

0

Jasmine and lol,

In no way do I think she's perfect, but she really blew me away in TPM. If there's going to be one thing you fault her with in TPM, lack of expression is so NOT one of them. Her eyes, are just, incredibly expressive. If you're looking for the big, showy mannerisms and facial contortions, you won't find it in her. She doesn't need it. Her eyes alone speaks volumes.

0

Jasmine,

I thought she had better chemistry with Yoon Sang hyun. Made sense because her character was in love with his. I like JIW too, but I was rooting for MCW-YSH, especially after this really cute scene they had in. The one where he treats her to a shopping spree, and they share ice cream or something (feeding it to each other). They were so cute. JIW's character didn't appreciate her enough. Not enough romantic tension between them.

0

Absolutely agree with Sue.

LOL I'm more rooting MCW with JIW. They're sooo cute together. How I wish to see them as OTP in a drama.

And now if you see new Chamisul Soju commercial with Ah In and Moon Chae Won. Seriously these two need to be in a rom-com.

Hope SJK&MCW have great chemistry.

Han Ga In become icy in Witch Yoo Hee..
Lee Bo Young become icy in BOTR..
n now MCW icy for NG..
maybe this 3 char will a lot be the same...
but for me Seo Eun Ki by MCW will be different and more charming character than others..
HGI and LBY icy have turn to Comedy..while MCW icy will turn to heartbreaking..I really love what JoMo said on the above comment..

' The table is set; the candles are lit
I ready and waiting for this melo feast.
Knives at the ready to cut out my heart
I expect that’ll happen 10 times at the least

It’s a Lee Kyung-hee dramas and you can’t turn away
Despite the tears that you shed and the ache that you
feel
Beauty in pain – why can’t they be happy?
It’ll hurt us like hell, but we can’t wait for the meal!! '

Do you guys know what it's means???? if you have watch MiSa,you will exactly understand and feel it..i think that words is desribing about MiSa..
MiSa = Nice Guy

11o out of 100 hhahahah. i think it would be more interesting if she falls for maru really hard before amnesia. just imaging a icy girl falls for love at first sight without a reason would be so heart broking.

Yes so heart breaking. I already feel pain for Eun Gi if she knew that her first love use her as a tool for revenge and he takes advantage of her amnesia which is the most vulnerable moment in her life.

Hmmm, this early on i'm already excited with MCW's character ...at the start of the drama she possessed an icy-heart then because of amnesia...i guess she'll become soft-hearted woman...and back to an icy-heart once she regained her memory ... i bet SJK will definitely receive a lot of spank from her...lol!

Hmm...this actress's character of Eun Ki seem very interesting...but it's really sad...(shook my head) I wish that it would suppose to be "happy-ending" in this drama. Hm, I am very curious to see how Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won are working like as chemistry together. Lastly, this pictures of her look so pretty, hm! ^_^

i hope for happy ending...but LKH always kill off the main character in her past drama..So i think NG also will be end with sad ending..But for me it's better if kill both of them instead of one...didn't like the ending only one will died..
i think this drama will be tearsjerking at the 1st 5 episode..and after MCW lost her memory.,it's will change warming and cuteness..and one think will be sure was definitely around epsd 15/16 until episode last (20)..It will be super duper heartbreaking episode..i think the time MCW regain her memory and found out everything.,that will be the time she will fire and cut out viewers heart..I have to admit here MCW best specialities was her emotion acting..

when she's crying.,her facial acting skill absolutely the BEST.,
when she's crying.,her voice sound so painful..,
when she's crying.,her eyes can speak too..,
when she's crying.,her tears fall at the right time..

she just the Best Cryer Actress in Korea..
i think MCW become LKH top list too because of this abilities..NG will be awesome!!

my personal favourite chae won's crying scene: last episode of TPM. the scene where the queen, princess kyung he and seryung in a room. it's heartbreaking to hear and see her crying. i can really felt that she's torn between letting seung yoo die or keeping him alive for her and their child sake...you can hear how desperate she was just by listen to her crying...please refer to that scene again if you want to know what i meant :)

wow guys...your notice was the same with me..!! the people's whose found MCW crying acting was incredible.,i want to give you a clap..i've agree more than 100% about her emotion acting..her immerse to her character was awesome everytime she's crying..
look so natural..really powerful acting..
@amymoon
yes for me there is no word to describe her crying acting..in The Princess Man only one word..'DAEBAK'..but her heartbreaking crying was notice started from 'Briliant Legacy',..You also should refer her crying in episode 27 after she get slap by Han Hyo Joo and episode last when she's try to find her mom..the way she act so lost expression,.oouuoowwffff....Really heartbreaking crying..
I guess LKH will make her as a weapon to slice and cut out viewers heart!!
get ready a dozen box of TISSUE!!!!

@hereoR
yes i totally forgot about that last scene in BL...i feel pity for Seung Mi...and i cried easily whenever i watched it....you can see from her crying and expression that she's really desperate and begging her mom not to commit suicide...she's really into character and you feel that Seung Mi is a real person (and so does the actress playing her mom, so good playing evil and manipulative)

yes i do feel that i need to get my boxes of tissues ready when i watch Nice Guy

Yeah, makjang as it can be, MCW's character kinda like TPM's Se-ryeong...

Compare an ambitious Grand Prince's most beloved yet a bit wild daughter in a sageuk with one of the most, if not memorable, re-interpreted story of all time (the 1453/5-whenever-you-want-it Coup)...

...and a pampered jaebol's daughter who's not excatly someone of the pushover doormat kind. Heck, I'm kinda expecting her to be the one who'll be doing the pushing over and stepping over, but not towards the villain kind of push and shoving...

Anyways, I'm watching out ONLY for Song Joong-ki, and not just because I kind of RP him somewhat. I mean, who can resist Song Joong-ki? And Puppies??? With him?
(like I kind of got a weird idea of him and Eom Tae-woong together in a movie, bromance and puppies alike, LOLsz)

----------

on a side-note and totally out of topic:

I was surprised the chacracter/persona of Kim Jong-seo was portrayed not once in TPM, but 8 times already...and I was surprised he wasn't even mentioned in "Deep-rooted Tree"...common villain daddy Choi Il-hwa portrayed him, and of course he just had to be in "Dowager Queen Insoo"...but the biggest shock was Lee Sun-jae did it twice~!!! The first was in "Pacheonmu", and the seconf was in "TPM" (when he got waaaaaaaaay old and his gravelly voice kinda reminds me of Yoo Dong-geun's Taejong of "Tears of the Dragon").
