Today at 7pm the press conference for the movie “The Wedding Eve” was held in Gangnam, Seoul Coex Megabox. The cast including the four on-screen couples from the movie, Lee Yeon Hee, Taecyeon, Go Joon Hee, Lee Hee Joon, Ma Dong Seok, Gu Jal, Kim Yoo Jin, Kim Kang Woo and it’s director Hong Ji Young were present. Notably absent from the event and from the past promotional events is Joo Ji Hoon, who was said to be so busy filming the currently airing drama Medical Top Team that he hasn’t been able to join the gang to promote the movie.
The responsibility of actors does not stop after filming. It is also part of their job to make sure that people go see your movie. Or why else would you go through all the trouble if not for people to appreciate what you’ve done. But of course, actors are also but human. I’m pretty sure that Joo Ji Hoon would have joined the promos if he could. But sometimes, some actors go out on a limb just to promote their movies. I remember Chinese hunk Huang Xiao Ming, who was then still confined to a wheel chair having broken his toes from filming, up and about, doing the promotional rounds for his movie and even posed for a magazine in that condition! Talk about dedication.
The movie’s premise brings to mind the movies Love Actually (2003) or even New Years Eve (2011) in that they are about different couples with different entanglements relayed in a romantic and comedic narrative. The movie will be released November 21.
