[Lily's Take] Ryu Jun-yeol Finds Peace in Filming "Little Forest"

2018/01/23 | Permalink | Source

The "Little Forest" team revealed some of the still cuts of the actor Ryu Jun-yeol's scenes.

The upcoming movie is based on Japan's award-nominated best selling comic book and it's been recreated by director Yim Soon-rye featuring Korea's beautiful nature and delicious food. This melodrama is considered a 'healing' drama with its peaceful atmosphere. Such genre has been extremely popular in South Korea in last few years because such serene and heart-warming stories have been helpful in healing the mind of exhausted city folk.

"Little Forest" will focus on the three childhood friends - Hye-won (Kim Tae-ri) who leaves the city after everything in her life seems to have failed, and Jae-ha (Ryu Jun-yeol) and Eun-sook (Jin Ki-joo) who welcome Hye-won back when she returns to her hometown. As the three friends spend four very special seasons together, Hye-won will learn to find her own happiness in life.

Ryu Jun-yeol's character Jae-ha is a hopeful yet determinate guy who was envied by his friends for the successful start of his career shortly after graduating college. However, he returns to his hometown to live the life he always dreamt of living. While he labors on the farm, he learns the meaning of life.

Regarding his role, Ryu Jun-yeol said, ""Little Forest" was a much-needed story for me. The script of this movie was nothing like I've ever seen before. There was no greed in the scenario whatsoever and had a bit of a different perspective on our life stories".

He continued, "Jae-ha is a character who seems to encourage and inspire everyone. I was also inspired by him as I played his role".

Ryu Jun-yeol's 2017 was a busy year full of activity. While managing to perform excellently in all roles he was given, he was also filming "Little Forest" all year long to capture the four seasons in the movie. He shared his experience on such long filming process, "When I came to film "Little Forest", it was like I came here to rest. Meeting the staff was like meeting my neighborhood friends. This was an experience I'll probably never have again".

Director Yim Soon-rye shared her impression on the actor saying, "I thought Ryu Jun-yeol would be a perfect fit for Jae-ha since he gives off a healthy image both physically and mentally. He is a promising actor since he has such a professional attitude combined with such passion and affection towards his character and lively details in his acting".

The movie "Little Forest" is scheduled to release in February.
