Kim Tae-Hee, Same Feelings as Kang Dong-Won

Kim Tae-Hee, currently filming the drama, “War” with Seol Kyeong-Gu, has been given much praise for her work by the staff, and is receiving plenty of love at the filming location for her great manners and humble attitude. Kim Tae-Hee receives top-star treatment in the CF industry, but there has been a lot of word when it comes to her acting ability, giving her no time to relax and always feeling rather tense. However, Kim Tae-Hee was able to overcome her anxieties in order to continue her acting, making the staff very happy.

On the 26th, a representative from the drama “War” stated, “I am very excited to see the final shooting of the film. Although there has been a lot of talk of Kim Tae-Hee’s acting ability, there is no need to worry. If I was to make a comparison, I would say that her acting resembles that of Kang Dong-Won in ‘Our Happy Hour’. As the drama progresses, you can say that her acting explodes. It is safe to say that it is a movie to be anticipated.”

Kim Tae-Hee carried a premium when she debuted in the entertainment industry as she was a Seoul National University graduate. For this reason, there were many comments stating that her acting abilities were poor compared to her beauty. What’s worse, a portal site displayed pictures of Kim Tae-Hee from her dramas, “Biography of a Nine-Tailed Fox”, “Love Story in Harvard”, and “Mid-Heaven”, all showing the same facial expression with big round eyes, stating that she only has one expression.

However, these views are slowly changing. The representative continued, “As Kim Tae-Hee changes in every episode, her encouragements do not cease. Her co-star Seol Gyeong-Gu is also commending her on her sincere hard work. The two stars get along very well on and off the screen, even to the point where Seol Gyeong-Gu would even joke saying, ‘Come sit over here, honey’.”

Director Han Ji-Seung’s first accomplishment was the pairing of the two stars Gam Woo-Seong and Son Ye-Jin in the SBS drama “Time of Love”. “War” is scheduled to finish filming next month and is to air in September.

Seo Tae Hwa, "I obtained a lot of example life images in 'Friend (2001)'"


<--------paragraphs skipped------->

Such he has already tried an image change gradually. It is the movie 'Ssawoom' to open in the latter half of the year, the role of the professor of the Stock Raising Section who has fallen into his own world is played and this unexpected character is scheduled to be seen. So much recently he was in MBC's daily situation comedy 'Kimchi cheese smile' acting as the broker meeting Hye Yeong with a view to marriage, a palpable acting that confessed importantly the love towards the go-between Seon Woo Eun Suk which he kept for 25 years was done and it notified of a real image change beforehand as it presented laughter.

Before this Seo Tae Hwa requested the journalist to express with the talk of 'Change' more than the image 'transformation'. He said "It seems not to be a robot transformation, this word does not suit actors etc. The story of a change seems to be suitable further. The scenario of the character is good and there is acting change in the selected work, the abrupt character in 'Ssawoom' seems to suit me well." Filming progress of the movie 'Ssawoom' with Seol Gyeong Gu and Kim Tae Hee was postponed a little because of the rainy season in summer but it has progressed more than 80% at present and is aimed on releasing in the latter half of the year.

Ssawoom expected to open in Korea on 2007-12-20

.... that is according to the official website of production company

*take note that this article below still states September as the release date.

Kim Tae Hee, The same feeling as Kang Dong Won in 'Our Happy Time'

'There are no more acting ability comments.'

Praises from the staff continue towards Kim Tae Hee (27) as she films the movie 'Ssawoom' with Seol Gyeong Gu. Her polite, modest attitude receives love from the filming set. Kim Tae Hee receives the top star treatment in the CF field but it is also true she is not able to loosen the tension every time during filming because there are a lot of comments about her acting ability. But Kim Tae Hee shows a different form while losing such anxiety as filming goes on, making the surrounding staff happy.

One official related to the movie Ssawoom on the 26th said "There are a lot of concerns for the movie at the filming end. There are a lot of questions on the acting ability of Kim Tae Hee especially. You don't need to worry. If I try to do a metaphor, it is the same feeling as the acting ability that Kang Dong Won emanates in the movie 'Our Happy Time'. Going to the latter half part, her acting ability says 'intense' (actually not sure of this exact translation, the korean word is 터지고 있다). You may expect it," the confidence feeling was shown.

At that time of her debut in the entertainment world, Kim Tae Hee shouldered the premium of coming from Seoul National University and there were abundant comments which said 'Her acting ability falls compared with her perfect features'. It's to the extent where the pictures of Kim Tae Hee in which she opens her eyes widely in 'Forbidden Love', 'Love Story In Harvard' and 'The Restless' etc were collected on some portal sites and the pictures gave rise to increasing number of comments 'There is no change in expressions'.

By the way, such an evaluation has changed. This party concerned continued and explained the reason "Giving Kim Tae Hee encouragement in her acting which changed each time is not regretted. Seol Gyeong Gu who films together with Kim Tae Hee also praised her sincere attitude. In the place they have meals together, Seol Gyeong Gu purposely calls out to her 'Yeobo (Honey), please come and sit here', the two actors often also keep time outside the filming set by throwing jokes."

After drawing out the perfect knack out of the Gam Woo Seong-Son Ye Jin couple through the SBS drama 'Alone In Love', Director Han Ji Seung's new work 'Ssawoom' is expected to release in September after filming finishes next month.

Kim Tae Hee, transforms herself into a glass artist in her new movie.. starts training

Journalist Yun Yeo Su | 06/14 10:34

Actress Kim Tae Hee transforms next into a glass artist.

Featured actress Kim Tae Hee of the movie 'Ssawoom' appears next to the plot as a glass artist and has started glass art practice.

Kim Tae Hee's management company side told, "She looked for an atelier in Seoul, Gangbuk and entered glass art training on the 13th."

The result of the foundation practice on this day is examined. If the practice is continued, it goes side by side with the motion picture filming. Whether she will finish in a short term is examined by the attributes of the practice.

Kim Tae Hee participates in this practice for the filming of her movie in which she appears to make glass art in some scenes while making a living as a glass artist.

The movie 'Ssawoom', which stars Kim Tae Hee and Seol Gyeong Gu, is a work produced by director Han Ji Seung of the popular drama 'Alone in Love'. It is a romantic love comedy that asks about the true meaning of love through the story in which the married couple begin trivial discords and do dreadful wars/fights/quarrels when they fall in a period of languor.

Initial Clips releasing news of the casting of Kim Tae Hee and Seol Gyeong Gu in Ssawoom

Both clips below are from April 10, 2007.


Kim Tae Hee-Seol Gyeong Gu, Movie 'Ssawoom' advanced notice of bloody body fights

2007-06-11 09:43

Kim Tae Hee and Seol Gyeong Gu 'The War of the Roses' such as on the previous night...

◇ Movie 'Ssawoom' Seol Gyeong Gu and Kim Tae Hee.
[ Journalist Jeong Jae Geun ]

'Deadly enemies in front of the camera? The highest affinity at the back!'

Seol Gyeong Gu and Kim Tae Hee who challenge barbarous body fights in the movie 'Ssawoom' (Director Han Ji Seung, Production Cinema Service-Sangsang Film) became complete recently as they attended the Daejong Film Awards ceremony on the eighth and posed intimately in front of the cameraman.

'Ssawoom' is a 'Hard-boiled romantic comedy' which draws the process of a married couple changing into 'Bitter enemies' when they enter the stage of weariness and cannot cancel their dissatisfaction with each other at the right time. Seol Gyeong Gu appears as the husband Sang Min who is six years older while Kim Tae Hee takes charge of the role Jinah, a 28-years old glass artist.

After boasting of a fantasy match even in the filming session locations, the two stepped on the red carpet together on this day's ceremony. A concerned party of 'Ssawoom' clarified, "Seol Gyeong Gu does not regret the consideration of Kim Tae Hee who's casting was decided relatively late. The atmosphere at the site is very good as jokes are mutually exchanged. Please expect to see an appearance of Kim Tae Hee that is different by 180 degrees as she is challenging the role of a strong-minded woman who attacks her husband with a stick."

The movie seeks the audience in autumn. [ Journalist Jeon Sang Hee ]

since already 2 separate articles about this upcoming movie kinda mention the 1989 Hollywood movie 'The War of the Roses' directed by Danny DeVito and starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner as the married couple, interested fans may like to check that movie out.

the tagline of that 1989 movie is: Once in a lifetime comes a motion picture that makes you feel like falling in love all over again. This is not that movie.

Angel Kim Tae Hee, 'Ssawoom transformation' ... Movie 'Ssawoom' Sharp temper acting

Input: May 24, 2007 21:13:54

'Beautiful female star' Kim Tae Hee transforms herself into a perfect fight/quarrel professional. Kim Tae Hee gives up her existing image in the movie 'Ssawoom' (director Han Ji Seung, Production Cinema Service & Sangsang Film) which she is filming at present. She reforms into a woman who has a strong mind and does not fear at all when she is involved in a body fight or argument with a man.

In the movie 'Ssawoom', the married couple enters into a period of languor/weariness and cannot cancel out the mutual dissatisfied feelings towards each other during married life, even reaching body fights in the process that is drawn as a 'Hard boiled romantic comedy thing'. Kim Tae Hee takes charge of the role of 28 year old glass artist Jinah. Seol Gyeong Gu appears as the husband Sang Min who is 6 years older. The acting is a pressurising competition between the married couple which is not inferior to that in two Hollywood movies 'The War of The Roses' and 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith'.

The first time when the casting of Kim Tae Hee was done for 'Ssawoom', there were a lot of 'Unexpectedness' in evaluations. It is because the actress with a feminine image goes out as a woman who attacks her former husband with a stick and says abusive language/bad things when the unbridgeable gulf feelings between them is too large. But after filming had started at the beginning of this month (May), it became clear that it was needless to worry for the future.

A person from the 'Ssawoom' production team expressed satisfaction, "For the appearance in the role of Jinah, the acting can actually be felt and misunderstanding may be shown as one may wonder whether the original appearance is the real thing. Kim Tae Hee laughs in the filming session locations and the flower is in blossom for a long time in the palpable acting." With this, he had confidence, "Kim Tae Hee would certainly run and prove her ability as an actor through 'Ssawoom'." 'Ssawoom' is planning to be opened in this fall.

[Pictures] Ssawoom couple Kim Tae Hee-Seol Gyeong Gu make first appearance together

As I hoped and wished, we finally get to see the 'Fighting married' couple together at the 44th Grand Bell/Daejong Prize Film Festival ceremony at the Seoul Sejong Center on the evening of June 08. The 'Couple in Black' walked the red carpet together despite a tight filming schedule whereby they had to continue with their filming for Ssawoom on the night of the ceremony. Below are some of the photos of them gracing the event, together with the rough translations of the headings/captions that accompany the Korean articles.

Doesn't Mr Seol look a little camera shy or nervous walking the red carpet with Kim Tae Hee, who in turn walked the red carpet like a pro flashing her smiles everywhere she looked.

Some of the pics can be clicked for the original bigger sizes!

Kim Tae Hee acting with a senior who's ticketing power is verified!

this was briefly mentioned in a new korean article released June 07.

i think basically the article was talking about the Korea movie industry facing a crisis and what is being done to help improve the situation.

one of them is to pair actors with other senior actors who have great ticketing powers in order to reduce the risk.

the actors and actresses mentioned who shine further more in the crisis because of their pre-eminent acting abilities or top performances are Seol Gyeong Gu, Song Kang Ho, Hwang Jeong Min, Im Chang Jeong, Kim Seon Ah, Ryu Seong Beom etcetc. these are the actors who are said to spend more time in the filming session locations to examine their scenarios than at home.

in all 3 cases below, they are examples of actresses who are acting with seniors who's ticketing powers are verified.

Kim Tae Hee is performing in 'Ssawoom' as the wife of Seol Gyeong Gu,

Young actress Lee Cheong Ah (1984-er) joins the cast of 'The Good, The Bad and The Weird' with actors Song Kang Ho (Secret Sunshine), Lee Byeong Heon (Once in a Summer) and Jeong Woo Seong (The Restless) and

Actress Eom Ji Won (Trace of Love) is paired up with actor Im Chang Jeong (Miracle on 1st Street) in 'Scout'.

A video on Cinema Service's lineup of movies including 'Ssawoom'

Kim Tae Hee can handle any role given to her and i always know she'd do her bestest, at this point, i just wanna say i'm glad she chose this role, i'm glad she chose what she had and needed to do instead of selling out to what the fans want to see of her.

again though i'm super looking forward to this, i am not going to have any expectations, just go with the flow.

The name of Kim Tae Hee's role in Ssawoom is....


that is according to this new korean article released on may 24.

from the article, it is mentioned that Kim Tae Hee is taking charge of the role of Jina, a 28-years old glass artist. Seol Gyeong Gu appears as her husband who is six years her senior in the movie. The article also mentions that the two act out the closing in war between a married couple which is not inferior to that in Hollywood films 'The War of the Roses' (1989) starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner and also 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' (2005) starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

if i'm not wrong, it is said that 'beautiful female star' Kim Tae Hee transformed perfectly into this new role even though in the beginning there were a lot of evaluations of 'unexpectedness' when Kim Tae Hee was casted in Ssawoom. this is mainly because the role is different from the feminine image of the actress. but after filming had started at the beginning of this month, it became clear that it was needless to worry for the future.

someone from the production team even expressed his/her satisfaction in Kim Tae Hee and mentioned that he/she is laughing at the transparent acting of Kim Tae Hee and is engaged all the while during filming. according to him/her, he/she has the confidence that Kim Tae Hee would certainly prove her ability as an actress through Ssawoom!

well, i know i certainly can't wait till Ssawoom opens in korea this fall.

i inferred all the above from here. it's only a rough explanation this time, will try to do a proper translation earliest 1 week later if no english translations are out yet and if time permits.

Kim Tae Hee, fatigue by untimely citizens paparazzi

2007.05.18 10:27 Input

Lee In Gyeong []

Kim Tae Hee is paying the price of fame with the untimely citizens 'paparazzi'.

Tens or hundreds of fans gather in each filming set of the movie 'Ssawoom' (Cinema Service & Sang Sang Film, Director Han Ji Seung) which she is making with Seol Gyeong Gu and the difficulty is experienced on the inside when photographs are taken.

About hundreds of citizens surrounded around the buildings though it was midnight when she was filming alone at the Mok-dong Hyperion Towers in Seoul on the last 15th. Kim Tae Hee had to adopt the feeling of crying sorrowfully in the car on this day and the staff too had to make the atmosphere quiet for her to immerse in her acting.

But the staff had to ask the citizens who took pictures of Kim Tae Hee to agree not to take any more. Moreover when Kim Tae Hee turned up and went around the filming session locations in Ajou University & Hongik University, the students also went out to see her and the surroundings had to be controlled.

Her filming session location photographs are being circulated on fan cafes and various Internet bulletin boards now. Her hair was tied and she was in candid simple clothes, her seen appearance is a topic among the netizens.

Kim Tae Hee fan cafe members raised a sentence of reflection, "Let's stop taking photographs in the filming session locations so that Tae Hee-ssi can be absorbed in her acting without obstructions from the surroundings."

Kim Tae Hee is the wife of a college professor (Seol Gyeong Gu) in 'Ssawoom'. She carries the role of a glass artist and challenges her first performance as a married woman. 'Ssawoom' is planning to be opened in the latter half of this year.

Kim Tae Hee 'Ssawoom' filming session location, traffic block in one region

Input : 2007-05-17 09:35:05

▲ Kim Tae Hee

[Edaily SPN Journalist Kim Eun Gu] The appearance of beautiful female star Kim Tae Hee caused a major traffic uprising in the city of Seoul.

Kim Tae Hee had filming on the street in Seoul Yongsan from eleven p.m. on the 15th as she participated in the filming of her present movie 'Ssawoom' (director Han Ji Seung, production Cinema Service & Sang Sang Film).

The traffic congestion expanded suddenly late at night as drivers who passed by stopped their vehicles to see the view.

As soon as Kim Tae Hee showed up, the number of people who had gathered with curiosity in the movie filming suddenly increased from one, two to about 300 people.

As the traffic was clogged with the sudden road delay, the production team had trouble in controlling the vehicles by sounding an alarm so as to proceed with filming.

Kim Tae Hee progressed with the day's filming for the next four hours.

A certain concerned party on the site said, "It was intolerable because a lot of people were gathering around as we progressed with the filming. Meanwhile, there were no other such cases and a lot of the filming had progressed quietly. The feelings are good as people are interested in the movie."

In 'Ssawoom', Kim Tae Hee plays the role of a glass artist whose husband is a college professor (Seol Gyeong Gu). For her, this is the first challenge acting as a wife. 'Ssawoom' is planning to open to the public in the latter half of this year.
