  • [INTERVIEW] Actress Park Min-yeong - Part 1

    2010/12/01, Source,
    Park Min-yeong [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] Actress Park Min-yeong rose to instant stardom through her debut role in MBC smash-hit sitcom "High Kick!" in 2006 by managing to shine amidst the throng of diverse characters with her role as Kang Youmi, an ignorent yet confident and cheerful girl in high school. Yet such fast-obtained popularity rarely lasts for long and the industry does not allow an actress to see slow growth. In KBS drama "I Am Sam" she played a character who holds her emotions within herself while bullied by others rather than immediately respond like Youmi from "High Kick!" would have but viewers remembered her as the same cheerful high school student rather than notice the change between the two and in her acting skills. She then did fairly well in pulling off her role as a princess who depicts on the most tragic narrative through traditional drama "Princess Ja Myung Go" but the low ratings the depressing show scored was applied to Park as well,...More
  • [INTERVIEW] Actress Park Min-yeong - Part 2

    2010/12/01, Source,
    Park Min-yeong [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]  10: As happy as you were with your character, I'm sure there was a point where the role actually became comfortable for you. Park Min-yeong: From the third or fourth episode? That's when the acting became easier. I was still a bit lost during the first two episodes or so because I hadn't fully digested my role so I had to put in a conscious effort to control the tone of my voice or emotions but I started feeling comfortable after that. And the director and writer left a lot up to me to decide so I increasingly felt comfortable. Then at certain scenes, for example, where I realize that my father was reading to me instead of my brother, I immersed myself into the role to an uncontrollable point. 10: So that may be why but it seems like the Park Min-yeong we know has improved a lot as an actress as well. For example, it didn't seem like you cowered in the scene with veteran actor Kim Kap-soo. Park Min-yeong: Mr. Kim Kap-soo wasn't the godly senior actor I usually see him as when we shot that scene but just the high-ranking government official that he is in the drama. And Yoon-hee was someone who is always sure of herself,...More

Slandering! 2009-08-15

Princess Ja Myung Go, the TV series I have been waiting for so eagerly, has disappointed me to the bottom of my heart. A fake kingdom, Nak Rang, a fake princess, Ja Myung and a fake story.
After watching Jumong and learning about his legend and his struggles to rebuild the old Kingdom of Chosoen and free his people from the cruelty of the Hans, and then watching The Land of the Wind, in which Muhyul tried to overcome a destiny of omens that had been foreseen, I was expecting another master piece about Hodong, Muhyul’s son, and his love story. I never expected these two heroic figures to be slandered like this.
Jumong defeated numberless of obstacles and enemies to establish Gogoryo and is considered a hero and a father to a nation that I as a foreigner respect a lot. The sacrifice he made as a strong and devoted general to unite the scattered nation of Chosoen should be respected at least by the writers who want to depict the life of his grandson. How on earth did the writers of this disappointing drama dare to create a new independent Kingdom and then claim that the only reason Muhyul wanted to conquer it has been his ego and desire to be the one and only core of power in Gogoryo, where in fact Nak Rang had only been a dependent state ruled by an appointed puppet of the Han dynasty of China? It seems to me the writers did not, cannot, understand that by changing Nak Rang into a Kingdom, they have changed Muhyul, King Daemushin, into a tyrant. And this fake figure of Ja Myung has made Hodong a detestable liar who abused Princess Nak Rang only in order to conquer her land.

Such libeling is really shameful!

And of course there is the matter of not-very-good make up and choice of actors and actresses. King Daemushin is at least 50 years old from Hodong’s childhood till his young hood and the greatest beauty of Nak Rang, Jashil, is not beautiful at all.

The only reason I followed the story was the wonderful acting skills of the drama’s young actors and actresses, especially teenage Hodong, Yeo Jin Goo.
