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

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.

[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.
