Jeong Jaeyoung... I guess Korean movie shows are spoiling me. Somehow a good TV Fairy heard my sobbing and pleading during those cold, dark nights without KNG bright smile, and now I get few JJY moments. I know this will come to an end when there will be no movie to promote, and I will have to wait few months on the complete dessert. But hell, I have movies, I can watch them all over again...

Noo!! And I will never be! The new interview is available for watching below as well as some snapshots from it. What differs this one from the previous interviews is that this footage actually focuses also on JJY transformation, that is shaving his head and few hours of make-up. No, not that kind of make-up The-One-Whose-Name-Shall-Not-Be-Mentioned would love to wear.

In a guerilla interview.
You know, writing here or on D-Addicts actually helps a lot when my mind is occupied with some bad thoughts. But some bad thoughts cannot be chased away. Some stay, and despite all my fangirling (we know what kind of) and love, they are still here.
So, today I watched (yes, I know it's late) Entertainment Weekly from 2010-07-10 and I fell from chair seeing the guerilla interview with JJY^^.
I've been watching a lot of shows lately, trying to understand as much as I can. I like EW and other movie shows, they have Korean subtitles sometimes, so I can check it^^. And I'm also drawn into The World And I program. I'm trying now to watch as much as I can of it. Also I'm catching up with I Love Movies.

This time I will most definitely translate it as soon as I can, because the article is so good^^. I mean, I knew he's one of the bests, and most definitely the best in Asia, but reading about it made my heart flutter. I know, a lot of pressure on Iggi, on him, on director Kang. But I believe everything turns just well. First screenings were favorable, but the general audience is what will judge the movie.

Yes, yes, I'm crazy... Because cutting out 40 seconds of the footage I've seen over 50 times makes me one hell of a crazy person. But, I also cut I Love Movies with the fragment of Iggi. That is why I don't really care if I'm crazy or not. I can be seen as one for all I care. Right now, right here, I'm myself, no one else. Not some nice lady on the bus (crap, I'm not a lady at all), not a normal teacher (I bet my students have their own opinions on that matter).
Plus, tomorrow I will present the review of Lovers Vanished. I hope, at least, but for that I have to watch the movie again. Since it's a bit heavy, and I finished my wine leftovers, I would vote for Queen Seon Duk re-watch. Which episode I stopped at? Hmm... 25th? I guess so...
Saturday, July 03, 2010
As if I ever stopped. Nope. Not with this guy.
Hell, I'm here, I'm still here, no chance to go for a movie premiere. Plus July 15 is another deadline. Or it will be, if military can't be persuaded with some charms. Maybe I should give my statement on this? I think they will comply with my ardent plea. Begging rather... Aishh, well, if not, what is left apart from waiting and patience? And learning Korean...
And I crave for ice-creams. Really. Vanilla flavor. I went to some nearby store and took a quick glance, but I didn't buy any... Must it be my strong will.
Or empty wallet.

That is why some actors have before their names: 탤런트 or タレント, and some just 미남 or 美男. Oh my, am I mocking Keunsuk again? No, I left him behind with all the idiocracy I can't stand anymore.The article can be found here:
And talking about the other talent before the name?
We know who.

Can anyone buy me a ticket to Korea for a movie premiere? Pretty, pretty please... OK, I'm back to normal. I will endure. Here is a new poster for Iggi.
So we got a very exact date, July 15. I will get dead drunk on that day.
There is also more news on G-Love that was supposed to start shooting this month. When I saw another actor for it, I had my doubts: a boy? a girl?
What's wrong with all the latest boys in Asia? I will post it in separate entry for G-Love.

Why shouldn't I? Besides, that shirt, that shirt... crap. Now I have to focus on something else, right?
Why oh why it had to be this kind of shirt? Nice color, hell, great color, and the cut.
I'm not that much of a strong woman to resist and contract my imagination. And - to quote Han Solo - I can imagine quite a bit.
It's not like I don't fight this sudden urge to... uhm, OK, I don't fight it. I'm such a weak woman... I really, really need to watch Divine Weapon this month again. Or Going By The Book, or...
Here we go again...
By the way, I noticed someone on the left side of this picture. I wonder is there something wrong with me eyes? If so, oh, damn my eyes... this shirt again.

You can also read Iggi (but unfortunately in Korean):
Ok, I can't think properly right now.
Here, you have 3 videos on Iggi:

I'm not obsessed. I'm just very, very, very focused.
So, the thing is, suddenly, there's been more than 7 pages on Chosun main website about this press conference, and I was able to get more pics. And video, for that matters^^
Yes, these pictures are different from those posted two days ago.

Hancinema was later than me in posting those posters, ha! What a feeling!
And this lovely picture on the left comes from a press conference on the movie. JJY said it was tiresome to wear a lot of make-up and characterization, and he probably grew old just because of that.
News Nate 2010-05-07
I'm in the middle of frantic searching for the video of this press conference.
And I'm able to dig up every news I can. My daily ritual to check every website twice.
For those not sure about what I'm so excited since January:
Directed by Kang Woo-seok (강우석)
Screenplay by Jeong Ji-woo (정지우)
Release Date: 2010-07-15 (?) - South Korea
Movie remade from a popular internet cartoon. The story of the few people who live in a village, and a man who comes to the village for his father's funeral. He tries to figure out the mystery of his father's death, but the villagers watch his every move.

Plot looks interesting, and presence of JJY makes every movie worth watching.
I feel like some teenager.
And according to some sites (Chosun mostly), of course image of JJY was the biggest surprise. I was surprised as well.
No doubts, I read that some fans had their doubts about it, but I guess they don't appreciate JJY enough.
Oh, I got it. Me neither. I just worship him.

The main cast of Iggi is featured in Harper's Bazaar.
I can't wait for the movie. The plot sounds promising, as for the cast, I have no objections (how could I?), so everything should go smoothly. The movie will be screened against Shrek Part I-Don't-Know-Which.
And I'm not in the party that claims every movie should have the conclusion, closed ending. I have nothing against an open ending. Oh, no, wait, maybe it's because I know what my synapses are for? Maybe it's because it's harder to figure out the possible ending by yourself? Maybe it's harder to think a little? People who are complaining about it, are beyond my understanding. I don't blame them. They were just born that way.
For those who rather enjoy guessing, pondering and being infuriated by the gallop of one's thoughts, an open ending is good.
On the other hand, it may also indicate the weakness of the director/screenwriter, but in most cases, I enjoyed it. It was like this in YAB, many people complained (hell, thousands complained!), where Hwang tae Kyung and Go Mi Nyu were just standing on the rooftop. So many people wanted for the last episode to show how their life will be afterwards.

Jeong Jae Young in new movie, eh...
I found it, as always everything, on Chosun Ilbo^^
