Hwang Jeong-min is one of Korea's best actors.
And Uhm Jung-hwa is the byword of female power in Korea.
The talented actor and actress finally come together in the movie "Dancing Queen"!
The movie's production announcement conference was held on the 12th, attended by both main leads.
[Interview : ] "Shake your body to the rhythm!"
[Interview : ] "I really want to become a singer".
[Interview : ] "I'm sorry, but you're out".
Uhm Jung-hwa is an ordinary housewife working as an aerobics instructor.
At a "Super Star K" audition, she gets an offer to join a dance group from a management company.
[Interview : ] "This is your version, and this is the version of "Dancing Queen"
[Interview : ] "Wow, who are you[Interview : ] "Oh my goodness! Jung-hwa!"
[Interview : Uhm Jung-hwa, Actress] "I think I was born to both sing and act. I've been working as a singer and an actress, so I'm used to both jobs. It was quite risky, but I think it makes the movie even more interesting".
She accepts the challenge, unable to suppress her innate talent.
[Interview : ] "Oh, man! Who pushed me
Now Uhm Jung-hwa must live both as a mayoral candidate's wife and as a singer.
[Interview : ] "I'll do my best. Please support me!"
[Interview : Hwang Jeong-min, Actor] "I was determined to portray a different Hwang Jeong-min, but it was easier said than done. The fact that the character and I had the same name had a big influence on me. He resembles me in many ways".
For Hwang Jeong-min, this movie required almost no acting.
But this was not the case for Uhm Jung-hwa.
[Interview : Uhm Jung-hwa, Actress] "Because I'm not married, Jung-min said that he felt very comfortable when filming the episodes that take place at home. He also said that his character resembled him a lot. I myself thought that my character resembled me as a singer when she was dancing under
the lights. I enjoyed myself a lot while filming this movie".
In the movie, Uhm Jung-hwa dreams of rising again as a dancing queen.
What are their favorite scenes
[Interview : Hwang Jeong-min, Actor] "There's a scene in which Jung-hwa, Korea's best dancer and singer, shows the grand finale. That scene will leave you flabbergasted".
[Interview : Uhm Jung-hwa, Actress] "There are a lot of bonus scenes after the movie ends, revealing the dancing skills of everyone in the movie. On top of that there's Jung-min's funny dance performance, so the movie will keep you laughing from start to end".
The movie "Dancing Queen" will offer hours of laugher to the audience.
We can't wait to see this lovable pair!
Oh man she just seems to get better and better.
I heard a lot of netizens were attacking her weight from the press conference.
