  • Yoon Yeo-jeong, "Being an actress is selfish"

    2015/03/30, Source,
    "A drama features everything I do because we have no time and everyone is in a hurry. But movies go through editing. It's something known as the producer's work of art. Editing cuts out some parts of my acting. I guess that's to intensify the story. I asked producer Kang Je-gyu why he cut out good parts of my acting. I almost held him by the collars (laughs)". Actress Yoon Yeo-jeong said this when we asked her how she liked the movie. She played the role of Geum-nim in the movie "Salut D'Amour". She falls in late romance with the bad-tempered Seong-chil (Park Geun-hyeong) living next door to her. There's a reason why she sees him and that's the twist. Yoon Yeo-jeong has a problem with Kang Je-gyu for cutting out her acting to intensify the twist,...More

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "The Taste of Money" : Tasty Money

    Film: " The Taste of Money" 돈의 맛 (Don-eui Mat) Director:  Lim Sang-soo Stars:    Kim Kang-woo, Baek Yoon-sik, Yoon Yeo-jeong & Kim Hyo-jin Review Score: 2.5 / 5 Lim Sang-soo came back from the 2012 Cannes Film Festival bitter and dispirited as "The Taste of Money" received the lowest average rating from their panel of internal critics. This, Lim's fifth film, also struggled at the Korean box office with a mere 1,162,699 admissions as this 'spirited' sequel to his 2010 remake "The Housemaid - 2010" failed to perform both local and abroad. Last year the Korean box office was smothered with sexy thrillers and dramas, some more successful than others, leaving many cinephiles and critics to question the significance and scope of such provocative films. Lim's 2010 remake of "The Housemaid" was also met with scepticism and received a lot of public attention due to its uninhibited portrayal of the salacious and disturbing world of Korea's wealthy elite. Those who caught Lim's modern interpretation of Kim Ki-young's 1960s classic will instantly recognise the film's grand and opulent veneer as the fantastically rich play with power, money, sex, and, of course, fire.,...More
