#Friends who do not age.
You mentioned that a movie incorporates all the things that you do like drawing, writing, music, etc. So, you could just make movies, then why do you also put on exhibitions, publish books and release albums?
Movie has its collective charm. However, it is hard to be imaginative while watching a movie. If a movie sends an answer inside a frame, I feel that I can imagine with music and art. Each medium/content has its own special charm. I am given an image of being all over the place and unfocused in what I do. But, truly, I think a lot about what is so different about what I am doing? For example, you cannot just make a magazine by only writing. You have to come up with a concept, you have to make sure to acquire the location, you would also have to get some right music for the right mood. It is not that different. Read More…
Ku HyeSun acts, makes movies and music, writes and draws. Being able to do one of those is hard yet she does them all. It is not because she is better than others or that she is born with genius talents. It is just that she has much more to show and share with others and she is much more diligent.
I said to myself that if it were not for the interview, I most likely would not have so carefully looked into her creations as I pushed the play button to listen to an album with her name on it. “From now on you cannot even say ‘we’ which does not exist”—her dry and barren voice in the song was soaking with sadness. I became calm. I saw her movies one after the other. I have to say there were some aspects that were harsh and excessive, but I was intrigued by the way she unfolds the themes of the stories. I also liked the fact that she does not try to kindly explain everything. Above all, I felt that she has a knack for making the actors look really good on screen. Thanks to her, I discovered actress Suh HyunJin. Read More…
Lee Min Ho talked about acting alongside Kim Woo Bin in The Heirs.
After starring as an 18-year-old high schooler who throws out everything for love, Lee Min Ho talked about Kim Woo Bin, who acted as his rival and a friend throughout the drama.
In a recent interview with Newsen, Lee Min Ho said “I was in America to film the first four episodes and came back to Korea to film the fifth episode, and that’s when I met Kim Woo Bin for the first time.”
“The first time I acted with Kim Woo Bin, I could feel the energy out of him,” continued the actor. “I felt sure that the drama would involve an intense love triangle, if it was going to involve an actor like him. And I guessed right.”
What made Lee Min Ho choose to star in the drama The Heirs?
Even though the drama was a success, many of his fans had worried in the beginning that his role in The Heirs overlapped with the one he played in Boys Over Flowers.
They were similar in that they were both 18-year-olds from a multi-millionaire family, who goes against the parents and falls in love with a poor girl.
Differentiating the two characters was a task for Lee Min Ho to solve.
Many people think Lee Min Ho quickly became a star through Boys Over Flowers, but he spent many years before filming the drama as an actor with no name.
After starring in Boys Over Flowers, Lee Min Ho began to be recognized by many people and continued to act in Personal Taste, City Hunter and Faith, building up his acting career.
Then he met The Heirs, taking a role that seemed quite similar to the one he played in Boys Over Flowers.
[OSEN=Park Jung Sun] The real Lee Min Ho when not on TV looked rather a little bit calmer than Kim Tan. Maybe it is because not long after SBS ‘He Who Wishes To Wear the Crown, Endure Its Weight – The Heirs’ (Also known as ‘The Inheritors’) is over, it was a calmness that looked like it had a little bit of fatigue also. Lee Min Ho, who is wearing a green knit sweater, left the drama ‘The Inheritors’ and looked like he is quietly saying bye and stepping away from Kim Tan.
