What Park Min Young Did During Filming Rest Time
During the standby time in the midst of filming, Park Min Young sometimes drew sesame-sized picture and showed it to people around her, and sometimes she held tightly to the thermos cup with both hands to savor the coffee, showing a very naughty side, which also attracted public attention.

These are performance of Park Min Young during filming of Glory Jane (Man of Honor). In the course of seriously memorizing script, Park Ming Young sometimes felt bored and so she drew sesame-sized drawing, and shyly made public her drawing skill to people around her. Or she used thermos cup to fill with hot coffee, savoring the delicious coffee, proving her status of been “fanatic coffee lover.” Especially for using the thermos mug to replace the disposable cup on the set, Park Min Young was really leaving deep impression to others.
After seeing the photos, netizens commented, “The drawing of Park Min Young is really small,” “The drawing is as the person, so cute!” “Bringing own thermos mug new concept actress Park Min Young,” “In Park Min Young previous dramas she also can’t separate from coffee! Really is avid coffee lover.”

My thoughts on Episodes 15 n 16

Post by mimi2601 » Dec 7th, '11, 16:00

I started out MOH without many expectations, having not watched BK. I am not a huge fan of melodrama and the plot seemed kind of cliched from the first two episodes. It was by the 7th or 8th episode that I started investing in this drama. But even before that, I used to enjoy YK-JI scenes. But it was with JI coming and living in YK's house that I started loving this pair.

Though the fauxcest angle is not something new, I liked how it was treated in MOH. And yeah, I think what is absurd is not the fauxcest, but the heights to which some people's moral indignation has risen over it. I loved how somebody explained the whole thing in S. that these were people who were interested in each other n then found out suddenly that they were bro n sis. I thought it was perfectly natural for YK n JI to have those developing feelings for each other because both realised that they had found their soulmates. If not for the hue n cry, I think I would have been able to enjoy those scenes better.

Chun Jung Myung has been a revelation for me. Part of it could be that he is able to identify with Young Gwang who is an interesting character in that his pride is both his strength n weakness. I also like how his character has developed from someone who could never take an insult lying down to a person who was ready to make a fool of himself in front of his own baseball team just for the sake of his family. His is a very relatable character n it is not often that you get a male lead who is not a type.

The same goes for In Woo. Again, what a performance from Lee Jang Woo! His character is also pretty interesting in that his negative shades are pretty clear to see n I thought that thankfully, there wasn't much attempt to whitewash his character. In Woo is the spoilt brat right from his childhood n that continues in his youth as well. However, his dad is one of the meanest dads I have seen on screen, especially with his kid. The very fact that IW realised he had become a grown man n need not take his dad's abuse any longer only when JI told him so shows us the extent to which the dad had scarred him as a boy. Yet, it will also be wrong to absolve him of all responsibility with regard to how he treats people. True, he has inherited his parents' style of treating people lower than him in status like 'dirt', but the fact that his actions hurt so many people is not something to be discounted. Ultimately, one has to take responsibility for one's actions.

Jae In started out as the bright, girl with the golden heart we see so often that PMY's character seemed a follow up of Nana to me. But as the drama progressed, I realized this is a different character. In some ways, JI is a child when compared to Nana. Nana could be streetsmart when the writers wanted. :P Jae In is all instinct and innocence, though like Nana, she stands up for herself. Jae In is still in the process of showing different shades of her personality. But I realize MY had to do some work to make her so gullible a character, a fact which I did not perhaps appreciate in the beginning. Also, because YK is also like her in many respects, her character becomes more believable than if the main lead was diametrically opposite to her in character.

I started appreciating Jae In's innocence fully in these last two episodes and friends, you have to watch these two episodes. She has always been wanting a home of her own, a family. Yet when she started gaining acceptance in YK's home, she had to leave it n was transported into a place that does not suit her bright n open-hearted nature. (But because of that, In Woo was saved) There is this scene where she goes missing after being insulted by IW's mom (a bit dramatic for me) n YK finds her sitting on the noodle shop doorsteps. I really felt pity for her then. :cry: It brought home to me that she is also such a fragile thing and that though she tries to be bright n all, inside she is still a child.

Now about In Woo and Jae In. I sometimes think she kind of fills in a sibling spot for him. She is the one who protects him against his dad, something which neither In Chul or his mom does for him. Also, she is the first to realise that he is a man who needs help. If IW had not known she was the real JI, perhaps the story would have been entirely different. Bcoz he knows she is his childhood friend, he opens out to her and lets her see him for what he is. I think JI has pity for him because she realises he is deep down a very insecure child, but I don't think she has feelings other than that.

About Young Kwang and Jae In, think it is long since I saw two leads who were similar in character and yes, sometimes birds of the same feather have to flock together. YK is a solid guy, who is pretty expressive about his emotions. It is great to see a guy coming straight to the point and not getting the girl confused about his feelings for her. :thumleft:

So what am I saying? Now that we have got some peace, I think it is time some of you started watching from where you left off. :wink: And to those who are :study: , watch it when you have time. Otherwise, it will get very lonely for me here and I will become like :alcoholic: Also, isn't it your responsibility to keep me out of trouble? :fight: LOL

I don't know why I can't get into this drama. These are two of my favorite leads and I just don't feel any chemistry between the two. I tried forcing myself to watch it but... oh well, maybe I will watch it some other time.
Now watching: Need to find some new dramas
