Kim Myung-min in Jang Jin-yeong's Posthumous Documentary

2010/09/08 | 1355 views |  | Permalink | Source

On September 3, MBC aired a special tribute for late actress, Jang Jin-yeong (1974-2009) on the occasion of her first death anniversary on September 1. The documentary featured interviews from Jang Jin-yeong's colleagues in the entertainment industry, and among them, was Kim Myung-min, her co-star in 2001 psychological horror film, "Sorum".

In the interview, Kim Myung-min revealed that when he heard about the passing of Jang Jin-yeong, he felt like he was hit with a blunt object, and before he knew it, tears came streaming down his face.

In "Sorum", Kim Myung-min highly commended Jang Jin-yeong for her perfect portrayal of a battered wife, a role that no other actress would be willing to take on. To characterize the role, Jang Jin-yeong gave up her feminine image for the sake of staying true to her job as an actress, an example of which was when she gets brutally beaten up by her husband in one of the scenes. Due to the dedication that she had shown, Jang Jin-yeong gained recognition as a "real" actress and eventually became the most sought after actress in the movie industry.

A video excerpt of Kim Myung-min's interview and some footage of "Sorum" can be viewed below.
