Scent of a Woman is airing this weekend! Kim Sun Ah mentioned in an interview that she lost a lot of weight for the role because she was playing someone who was dying. She ate rice once a day, and slept for only 2 hours a day. I’m not surprised that she is so devoted to her role, since she gained weight for My Lovely Sam Soon and now is losing weight for a role. But funnily enough, she also says, “I wish (the director) focused more on the drama’s story rather than my outer appearance.”
Um. Should I be worried about the drama plot then?
- Kim Rae Won will costar with Su Ae in the drama Forget Me Not, now known as Thousand Day Promise. He will be replacing the rumored-star-Song Seung Hoon. Meh. 1) It’s a melodrama. 2) I never got into Kim Rae Won, no matter how enjoyable Attic Cat may have been. 3) The story is about a woman who loses her memory and is being called a younger version of “The Notebook.” I must be too young to appreciate the romantic notions of that film.
- As for Daesung‘s car accident – he won’t be charged for killing the motorcyclist, but reached a settlement with the man’s family. Thank God; I’ve felt bad for him.
- Lee Yeon Hee might star in an upcoming film with Jo In Sung. It will be Jo’s first project since he left the army. The film is a sci-fi fantasy about a high school senior who gains superhuman powers and saves the girl he likes. He becomes a vigilante of sorts as well. So Korea’s finally going the comic book-superhero blockbuster route? UHHHH… Not entirely sure which characters these actors are playing, but I can’t suspend my belief if Jo In Sung is the high school senior.
- And a photo spam of Jung Gyu Woon! The hottie had an interview about the end of Romance Town and only had praise for Sung Yuri in her role as Noh Soon Geum. He admitted his name is unusual for a Korean name, but it’s his real name (rather than an off-kilter stage name). He mentions that the next role he’d like to take on is that of a villain. I’d actually like to see that – he already has a big hulking body. Can we make him a tortured villain with lots of scars and a taste for blood? No – not a vampire, but just someone who’s murderous and dangerous.
