Host: Vanessa (VY)
Ku Hye Sun: KHS
VS: Besides me is Ku HyeSun, an actress who is beautiful and has good acting skill. This time she visits Hong Kong for her own solo exhibition which is held at Harbour City. Let’s have a chat with her. Annyeonghasayo~
KHS: (In Cantonese) Hello, I’m Ku Hye Sun. (can’t hear clearly..) “Yat Huen Huen” (name of the program) Vanessa Yang
VY: This is the second time you visit Hong Kong. Why do you like Hong Kong so much?
KHS: Hong Kong is a central place that people from all over the world come and it is also a place of so much cultural exchange and that is why I like Hong Kong.
VY: How do you think Hong Kong people see your art?
KHS: I put into them (referring to her drawings and paintings) somethings I can find/discover in daily living, things that give me feelings of comfort, animals that I love…memories are contained. What I hope is that people would have fun watching them.
VY: Why is the exhibition called AfterImage? What is the theme?
KHS: How I decide on what to draw are from the lingering images or remnant after having a dream or when things I love shimmer/flicker in front of my eyes and the feelings and memories I get when I see these images. That is how I do them.
VY: Which painting among the exhibits you like most?
KHS: I love everything. (referring to her work pieces) But, I would pick my cat Mango.
VY: Then would you like to bring Mango to Hong Kong?
KHS: You want me to bring Mango to Hong Kong? (laughing) I would like to but cats are animals who usually fear going outside, so (she starts cracking up here) I need to ask Mango about it. (laughter)
VY: If fans would like see Mango, you can visit her exhibition from now on till Oct 27, in which shows various works with the image of Mango

Lee Min-ho is returning. He is making a comeback through SBS’s drama “The Inheritors” set to premiere October 9. And that too with scriptwriter Kim Eun-sook who with her Midas touch had turned actors Jang Dong-gun and Hyun Bin into the most attractive drama characters possible. Having witnessed the explosive synergy created by the star writer and star actors, it is impossible not to look forward to Lee Min-ho’s Kim Tan (name of his character). TenAsia got to sit down with Lee for a brief chitchat ahead of his shoot for “Inheritors” in Los Angeles, so with the Lee who was in the process of becoming Kim Tan.
The Lee that TenAsia met with had a straight and sharp nose between his eyes that were so clear they made him look softhearted. And the heavy angles to his face were those of a young man’s. It was a beauty that seemed to explain the reason he is loved in all of Asia. But there was more to him that was discovered through the interview: his seriousness regarding acting, his sturdy attitude, and the right amount of confidence that comes from those who do their jobs properly, made him attractive beyond his beautiful looks. When the interview was over, Lee said he enjoyed getting to talk so excitedly about acting for the first time in a while. So below is the dialogue. Enjoy! Read More…
She keeps on talking about dating. It is not because she is in love, but it is because she is preparing her third feature movie which is a romantic comedy. For this film, KHSFilms’s Director Ku Hye Sun is in the process of securing investment funds. Ku Hye Sun says: “This time, the scenario is awesome!” With those pretty lips, she is even boasting to the investors. I really hope that good investors will quickly appear. I am so curious about a love story that she has written, will direct and will act in.
