Personal note

I am not familiar with the comics but what interests me most is seeing Kim Sun Ah portray such an out of the box character. In this movie she is deglamorized which is an usual thing for me. Most of her usual roles are funny and light (My Name is Kim Sam soon, I Do I Do, Pitch High) In her interviews she said that this role was very challenging for her not only for its physically requirements but also the emotional anguish the character feels is hard to carry. Personally I like actors who are not afraid to look ugly for arts sake.

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.

Shin Min Ah, Jo Jung Suk Confirmed for My Love, My Bride Remake

 

A few days ago, news floated about Shin Min Ah and Jo Jung Suk‘s offer to star in a movie.  Both of their agencies revealed then that both actors were positively reviewing the offer. Today, casting of Shin Min Ah and Jo Jung Suk in a remake of Lee Myung Se‘s My Love, My Bride is confirmed. It will be their first time to work together. Jo Jung Suk’s career has been red hot since his star-making turn as a rigid, unwilling romantic soldier in King 2 Hearts. He just came off a very successful and highly rated drama with IU, You’re the best Lee Soon Shin and the box office movie The Face Reader. Shin Min Ah, on the other hand hasn’t starred in a movie since 2009’s A Million. Her last TV drama was last year’s not-so-successful Arang and the Magistrate with Lee Jun Ki. I’m not quite sure about their chemistry since I haven’t seen them in anything together. However, I know for a fact that this movie is a Korean classic so I am curious to see how this classic will fare in a modern setting.

My Love, My Bride 나의사랑 나의신부 is a 1990 romantic comedy movie by award winning director Lee Myung Se. It starred the late Choi Jin Sil who got a Grand Bell Awards for best actress for her role. It is a simple story about college sweethearts who got married right after graduation believing that their love can overcome any odds. Pre-production has already begun.
