Good, maybe now Hyejung will get better roles, as she's really talented.

I think she's gorgeous and a talented actress. Hope she gets more award-bait work with this new agency!
anconeous 12th-Aug-2013 11:31 am (UTC)
What happened to her Miss Ripley was a fucking tragedy. I hope her new agency gets her better roles. :)

Jung Somin!!!
But..."ready despite her young age"???
(Why is she called Oh Hani in the title? Something she acted in?)
anconeous 12th-Aug-2013 11:55 am (UTC)
It's her character in Playful Kiss. I think.
obeytheempress 12th-Aug-2013 11:56 am (UTC)
Oh Ha Ni was her character in Playful Kiss :)
ms_rancha 12th-Aug-2013 11:57 am (UTC)
that's her name in Playful Kiss ;)
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 03:31 pm (UTC)
Lol, at the age thing. She debuted at the tail-end of her uni days...
obeytheempress 12th-Aug-2013 12:00 pm (UTC)
Love Jung So Min!!! She was the only thing that made Playful Kiss worthwhile, IMO. I've been waiting for her to have a high-profile project since then. I hope SM treats her right, I really think she could be a big star with the right role.
ms_rancha 12th-Aug-2013 12:09 pm (UTC)
she might join jang geun seuk in "beautiful man".
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 03:36 pm (UTC)
That show sounds like a flop (or mania drama at best), so hopefully not.
ebenetwo 12th-Aug-2013 01:48 pm (UTC)
she was the only redeeming thing in PK
i was at the height of my lust for KHJ then lawd, that and her were the only things making me stick to that drama

i really want her to be a lead in something and hit big. she has this endearing, genuine quality i see in Gong Hyo Jin and Kim Sun Ah, and they're my faves.
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 03:35 pm (UTC)
I feel that way about everyone who plays that role... so I've come to believe it's the result of good writing (the mangaka).

I've been waiting for her to hit it big since Bad Guy.

I do think though that joe chen imo was far more tolerable than khj(though idk how hard that is to do) and made it work more plus the chemistry between him and ariel was tons better than jung so min and khj. In the korean version literally only thing keeping me going was jung so mi who I also hope gets some good work.

Lol at the KHJ/JC comparision. ISWAK is drama perfection! If you've seen any of japanese versions, it will be easier to notice that the female lead is really well written and always properly cast. The new japanese version almost knocked ISWAK out of its #1 adaption title.
icedevil0289 12th-Aug-2013 07:19 pm (UTC)
hmm maybe I should check the new japanese version out though its hard for me to let go of the ariel/joe combo. I actually enjoyed the sequel of iswak a lot more tbh
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 07:48 pm (UTC)
Everyone did! Those 2 are an unrivaled pair, but the japanese versions are almost equal in overall writing/acting/directing.
bubble_monkey9 12th-Aug-2013 10:18 pm (UTC)
I love ariel lin. In Time With You is one of my fav dramas ever.

joe cheng is not much better than khj though lol it's much more cringe-worthy when you can understand what he's saying. his line reading is terrible.
icedevil0289 12th-Aug-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
ahhh okay idk I thought he did a better job but then again i think he had more chemistry with ariel lin than khj did with jung so min so idk if that helped.

I think he might have gotten better with they kissed again though. But i think in general the female leads were much better than their co stars.

I should check out more of ariel's work.

I'm happy for Kang Hye Jung, and I love to think of she x JYJ or even Tablo x JYJ, but I also think it's funny/interesting. She convinces Tablo to go YG, but then leaves YG a few years later. I hope it was amicable since she definitely is entitled to better management if she's not getting the roles she wants.
juhli 12th-Aug-2013 02:47 pm (UTC)
gundae 12th-Aug-2013 12:29 pm (UTC)
I hope she drags Tablo out of there as well.
hippodameia 12th-Aug-2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
I second that. I was really disappointed when I found out he signed to YG. Epik High just doesn't have the same feel anymore.
eyryg 13th-Aug-2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
Let's not forget about Run
hippodameia 13th-Aug-2013 08:03 pm (UTC)
What about it? You mean how the group left Woollim and then ended up returning to the label after a couple self-released albums? They still had a good feel to me, even at that point, although that whole rebel indie label bullshit they were spouting was annoying and pretentious. Epik High's music sounds too pop-like to me now. Their older stuff took a little while to digest, whereas the newer album doesn't. It doesn't seem like there's as much wordplay and the sounds are too pretty, among other things.
misoras 12th-Aug-2013 12:53 pm (UTC)
Kim Ha Neul not Lee.
ms_rancha 12th-Aug-2013 01:26 pm (UTC)
thanks. edited.

I didn't know Jang Dong Gun was with SM C&C o_O
woorijinki 12th-Aug-2013 03:13 pm (UTC)
Yeahh basically all of the leads in A Gentleman's Dignity (with the exception of Lee Jong-hyuk) ended up in SM C&C because of the merge (although, I think Kim Min-jong was already apart of SM C&C before the merge??).
swhyeon1991 12th-Aug-2013 02:14 pm (UTC)
Lol Oh Hani ♥
lysblack 12th-Aug-2013 02:21 pm (UTC)
i hope that this means that they both will have better career chances, they are too talented and gorgeous for what they had.

i am especially hoping that this will mean good opportunities for so min, i really love her.
bunica1990 12th-Aug-2013 03:00 pm (UTC)
Oh Ha Ni <3
woorijinki 12th-Aug-2013 03:09 pm (UTC)
Oh Ha-ni hahahahah. I'm watching her in Bad Guy right now (three years late, I know lol) and she's just talented in everything she does. I don't think she was doing too badly career-wise, so I wonder why she made the choice to leave Bloom

And I'm glad Kang Hye-jung left YGE, she was being so wasted there. Hopefully we'll being to see more of her now ^^
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 03:25 pm (UTC)
I find the title offensive to Jung So Min. The girl has been consistently working, she's done more than Kang Hye Jung in recent years...
kjc48 12th-Aug-2013 03:27 pm (UTC)
Also, when will Tablo/Epik High peace out?
strawberry_efeu 12th-Aug-2013 03:40 pm (UTC)
Jung So Min is super pretty;; I hope she does well in SM C&C.

And I'm not surprised that Kang Hye Jung left YG because they're kind of shit at any sort of management, much less managing actors. It's kind of interesting that while JYP and SM are investing in their actors more, YG is losing his. I guess the only surprising part is that she went to CJES. Ji Hyo hasn't had any problems though, so it's probably fine? They do promote their actors well.
baboboy 12th-Aug-2013 05:14 pm (UTC)
that's 2 new actors for C-jes in 2 weeks, they must be doing something right
asnindie 12th-Aug-2013 06:28 pm (UTC)
YG needs better management, both actresses have been wasted.
almightykuzon 12th-Aug-2013 07:51 pm (UTC)
"lol seeya tablo"
yolleh 12th-Aug-2013 08:39 pm (UTC)
YG wasting talent? What a surprise.
Soon they'll be losing money too if they keep mismanaging their acts too.
21banged 13th-Aug-2013 09:40 am (UTC)
I need this to happen so they wake the fuck up and realise that half assing it with their acts just doesn't cut it anymore
yolleh 13th-Aug-2013 02:33 pm (UTC)
I doubt it will anytime soon. Hardcore stans will eat up whatever the hell they shovel out there :/
21banged 13th-Aug-2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
ugh that's what pisses me off so much >_>

but tbh I think YG is seeing the effects in 2NE1 atm, from what I've heard, they aren't doing so well in the charts RIP my baby Bom's short lived career
yolleh 15th-Aug-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
Rightly so! All their songs have sucked since 2010 tbh apart from I love You. PUT TEDDY ON SABBATICAL OR WHATEVER ALREADY, WE DON'T NEED TO HEAR ANY MORE FROM HIM.
RIP her ridiculously beautiful pre-debut face though :( Bom made her paper tbh, I suppose she could always go into idk, songwriting or something after. Whatever. What I really care about is Minzy getting her time to shine
21banged 17th-Aug-2013 12:10 am (UTC)

omg legit man she was always so qt and perfect I wish she'd never gone under the knife It's true but I think that if 2NE1 ever did disband, no one would pick her up, though I wouldn't be worried about the rest IMinzy/CL are young and have talent, Dara looks young and can hit those CF deals up) Sometimes I wish she'd never gone with YG in the first place, she could have been so much greater in Ailee's and Wheesung could have told her how to sing properly
love_allure 12th-Aug-2013 09:50 pm (UTC)
good cause yg is a deathpit for actors. why would you even join unless you wanted a years-long vacation?
21banged 13th-Aug-2013 09:39 am (UTC)
YG is a deathpit for almost everyone unless A.) you are comfortable with and will produce/promote/secure your own stuff or B.) You are his perceived golden goose

tbh they should all leave because YG is a mess and it hurts watching my babies and their talents rot away. Bless Hye Jung for waking up and leaving that sinking ship
muramatsu_aoi 25th-Mar-2014 03:56 am (UTC)
I missed Hyejung's work in the recent years.. YG makes an epic mess managing their actors. How I hope Yoo Inna and Jung Hyeyoung follow her footprints. Jung Hyeyoung is a talented actress and I'd love to see her in roles with a little more oomph..
