Kim Hee Sun then went on to speak about the filming. She said, “It’s been some time since I’ve done any filming so I thought I would be very nervous. However, as filming actually started, I was comfortable and it felt like I just came back after filming the day before. I am thankful because I believe it’s all due to the teamwork of the production group.”

The drama, “Faith,” is the new drama done by PD Kim Jong Hak and writer Song Ji Na, who did the dramas, “Sandglass” and “The Legend,” in the past.

Veteran Chinese actress Song Dandan is drawing interest for having possibly expressed her desire to work with actor Lee Min Ho. 

Recently via, Song Dandan’s Weibo, she surprised many by posting, “I want to appear in a drama with Korea’s youthful star, Lee Min Ho.”

Palace 3 is part of a mega popular Chinese romantic historic drama series which has featured some of China’s best and biggest actors

The exact meaning behind Song Dandan’s posting remains unclear and whether she meant she was still as young and lively as an actor such as Lee Min Ho or if she meant she would like to directly work with him.

Nevertheless, the posting is drawing huge interest among her 8 million Weibo followers and among Lee Min Ho’s fans in China as well.

Regarding this, Lee Min Ho’s agency said, “Though we haven’t received an official proposal, we’re grateful one of China’s most representative actor has shown interest. Just as much as we’ve received countless proposals, we′re also opening the door for many possibilities [for Lee Min Ho].”

Lee Min Ho Hopes to Do Good Deeds with His Fans

CJ E&M enewsWorld Grace Danbi Hong

While busily preparing for this upcoming drama Faithand looking gorgeous for the camera, Lee Min Ho sat down with Ceci fashion magazine in Shanghai for an interview.

Featured in the June edition of Ceci, Lee Min Ho modeled various outfits from formal to casual, portraying a nice cool breezy summer look offset with a sky blue background.

When asked about his quiet demeanor during the photo shoot, Lee Min Ho remarked, “I’m usually really talkative. I never thought of myself as a quiet person.”

Then he added, “I used to be the person who approached people first, but now it’s a little bit harder. But then I think to myself, ‘Is it okay to live in this like this?’ so I do my best to approach people first, especially since it’s my job as an actor to meet new people.”

Since Boys Before Flowers, Lee Min Ho has slowly entered into productions one at a time, which he thinks is a good thing since it is not just him working on a new project but a large group of people. He has earned significant opularity as a flower boy Goo Jun Pyo and city hunter Lee Yoon Sung, but there have also been mean comments left on his social networking sites.

On comments like, “I don’t like your Goo Jun Pyo hair,” or “I can beat Lee Yoon Sung,” Lee Min Ho replied, “It’s really nothing to get hurt over. Some of them are actually fun and not hurtful at all. To be honest, I had a hard time with Goo Jun Pyo hair too.”

With more and more fans everyday, Lee Min Ho revealed his hopes.

“My fans have been doing good things in my name. Whether they are Korean fans or fans from overseas, they gather together to do good deeds. I don’t know when it’ll happen, but I hope to do something meaningful with my fans later on.”

The rest of Lee Min Ho’s pictorial and interview will be available in the June edition of Cecimagazine.

이민호-김희선 주연 '신의', 촬영도 안했는데 포스터 등장? 기대감 UP!

[enews24 최은화 기자] 배우 이민호 김희선 주연의 드라마 '신의'에 대한 기대가 높아지고 있다.

최근 한 온라인 커뮤니티에는 8월께 방송 예정인 SBS 월화극 '신의'의 포스터가 공개됐다. 드라마 촬영이 시작되지 않은 상황에서 등장한 이 포스터는 이민호의 팬들이 직접 작업한 것으로 알려졌다.

팬들이 만든 포스터는 청록색 바탕에 물방울무늬를 그려 넣어 몽환적인 이미지를 삽입했다. 마치 망원렌즈로 아웃포커싱한 듯한 물방울로 '신의'가 시공을 초월한 판타지 사극임을 강조하는 듯 여겨진다.

특히 마주 보는 이민호와 김희선의 눈빛은 작품의 주제를 말하는 듯 함축적인 느낌을 자아낸다. 김희선은 애절한 눈빛으로 이민호를 바라보고 있지만 이민호는 슬픔 표정을 감추며 애써 외면하고 있다.

이 합성사진은 이민호, 김희선의 팬 카페는 물론 '신의'를 쓰는 송지나 작가의 홈페이지에도 게재됐다. 이를 본 송 작가는 제작진을 통해 "참으로 능력자들"이라며 감탄을 자아냈다.

포스터를 비롯해 동영상으로 뮤직비디오도 제작된 바 있어 '신의'에 대한 팬들의 기대가 높은 것으로 해석된다.

이에 대해 이민호의 소속사 관계자는 "송지나 작가의 대본이 워낙 탄탄하고 드라마의 최영과 은수의 캐릭터가 생생하게 살아있어 하반기 최대의 인기 커플이 될 것으로 예상된다"고 기대감을 전했다.

김종학 감독, 송지나 작가가 뭉친 '신의'는 고려시대 무사와 현대 여의사가 만나 시공을 초월한 사랑을 그리는 퓨전사극이다. 김희선이 여의사 역을 맡았고, 이민호는 왕의 호위무사 역으로 출연한다. 8월 13일께 방송된다.

I’m thinking a lot about how I should express and differentiate this series from other sageuks. There’s something special and different about the tone, clothes, action, and more. The script is really entertaining as well."
