My Girl (SBS, 2005/6)

Post by ngongan » Dec 17th, '05, 11:09

Another "sassy" girl is to meet TV audiences every Wednesday and Thursday nights beginning this week, as director Jeon Ki-sang unfolds his jovial imagination in a new SBS drama "My Girl". As a "professional" trickster, this new heroine is promised to be cheekier and sassier than the last.

Through the KBS drama "Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang", which ended with overwhelming success in March, director Jeon has already proven his talent in producing romantic comedies with a "different" type of heroine.

Director Jeon's motto is to produce a drama that he himself can "laugh his head off" while watching.

"It's not like I have an exceptional philosophy about drama-making. I just want people to have a good laugh, and realize in between the laughs that life is actually quite joyful," Jun told reporters in a news conference last week.

In the previous drama, Jun recreated the loyal woman Seong Chun-hyang from a well-known Korean classic "Chung-hyang jeon (Chun-hyang's story), into a headstrong sassy girl, receiving an enthusiastic response from females in their teens and early 20s. This time, the heroine Ju Yu-rin, played by actress Lee Da-hae, is a cheeky con-artist who learns from her troublesome father that ripping people off is the easiest way to make a living.

But meaning no harm by her "little" lies, Yu-rin is an irresistible character who never loses the sense of humor and optimism despite the bitterness of life.

"It seems that all female characters are standardized in TV dramas, and thus, I try to create a new character that viewers have never come across before," said Jun.

As the story unfolds, the lovable con-girl will meet Seol Gong-chan (Lee Dong-wook), a cool-headed businessman who asks her to act as his long-lost sister in order to fulfill his grandfather's last wishes. And Yu-rin slowly finds herself falling for this irritable and annoying man.

Director Jun's talent in romantic comedies has also been recognized overseas.

"Sassy Girl, Chun-hyang" became the first drama to sell the remake copyright abroad. Buying the copyright to remake the drama in its own language, China also offered Jun the opportunity to direct the new version.

Aiming for fame throughout Asia, Jun has a solid view toward the current Korean Wave led by the popularity of Korean TV dramas.

"The Korean Wave is an opportunity for us to spread our culture throughout the world, which is actually far more important than selling 1 million cars," Jun said. "But it concerns me that Korea is causing anti-Korea sentiments in the neighboring countries by approaching the phenomenon too commercially."

Jun added that it is a must for Korea to map out solid policies to keep up the wave.

"We are actually getting paid to promote our culture, how good a chance is that? But if we are not careful, the wave will end up as a temporary phenomenon," he said.

Jun also made remarks on the current trend of more dramas being produced under the planning of producing companies. Unlike the past production systems, in which a drama was produced under the influence of three major broadcasters - MBC, KBS and SBS - more dramas are now produced by production companies.

With many companies investing large amounts of money in these production companies, more time and budget is spared for the drama-makers, allowing them to improve the drama's quality to a great extent.

Currently, about 60 percent of dramas are made this way, and "My Girl" is also produced by a major producing company Kallista.

Some experts warn of unexpected risks the new method may cause if the new phenomenon is dominated by only the largest production companies, ruining the diversity of the drama-making market.

But director Jun said that despite the shortcomings, it was a must for more Korean dramas to be made in the new method.

"Due to the tight budget and shooting-schedules, the quality of Korean dramas has not been improving," he said. "It is only a matter of course that more dramas should be produced under better circumstances."

Jun is also known for the ability to find new faces with potential, helping them become known to TV fans through his dramas.

"Yonsama" Bae Yong-joon, who made his debut through Jun's 1994 campus romance series "Greetings of Love," is just one example of talent found by Jun.

"Under the current situation, it is difficult and also wrong to cast only the most popular actors and actresses. I feel some sort of a responsibility to find new faces who will later lead the Korean TV screens, and hope that 'My Girl' will become another opportunity," said Jeon.

Is it just this drama or Korea going through a bad fashion phase?

That Lee Jun Ki guy was in the movie The Hotel Venus.

I never thought he looked female in the movie, but he reminds me of a bishounen anime character in this drama.

The Hotel Venus is one thing. But he most definitely looks like a girl. I'm not denying that.

This picture for instance

Before knowing who was who in the drama, I looked at the above and recall thinking "pretty girl!, just my style" ..... :crazy:

I agree that this series is funny. I think the main girl is highly one of the most taletent Korean actresses.

This gril can act:
Sweet 18---Villian or mean,
The Green Rose---sad, and now
My girl---funny.

I like her acting a lot. A big fan of hers.

Try http://clubbox.co.kr/lollol101. You'll have to do a little searching though since none of it is in English. For future reference I'll be uploading the raws on the d-addicts tracker one episode ahead of ay_link's subtitle releases.

Btw, does anyone know the artist and name of that french song they played in ep08?

They played it in one of the earlier episodes too, that time in a movie on tv.

^ You can find it in Wachi's clubbox. Very good quality and works well with the subs too. :)

By the way, am Looooooving this drama! :) I thought the first episode was a little bit silly, but then its just got better and better and now I'm completely hooked. The lead actors are so cute too. :wub: It should be interesting now coz :

It looks like Seoul Gong Chan is going to realize he has feelings for Ju Yoo Rin, just when Ju Yoo Rin's vowed to give up on him and concentrate on the money ( the scene where she took her money out and compared him to the King on it was hilarious!). But its still not going to work out because now there'll be the misunderstanding where they'll all think she really IS the granddaughter. I think the real one will be the other girl in the picture though.

Some other of my favourite scenes from this drama :

* The snowman and the bench with Jeon Woo (ack..cant spell right)
* The phone call prank..mobile rooster ringtone and Yoo rins pics and how Gong Chan actually likes it..he even asks that Kim girl to leave it, hehehe
* arcade scene with Jeon woo and the byansha bit after it (I feel so sorry for this guy:( )
* Gong chan at the ship docks when she's crying..look at the way he looks at her! T_T :wub:

Okay, better stop..this list could go on. ;)

I would be so happy if she actually ended up with Jeong Woo (?), but I know it won't really happen. It would be awesome to see a kdrama break the mold, though.

i wish also that she could end up with him too...but i highly doubt that would happen. This is probably the only kdrama i've seen where i am rooting for the "other guy". well.. except in Super Rookie I was cheering for the "other girl."

i totally love jeong woo. he is so sensitive about yoo rin feeling. i really wish that jeong woo will end up with yoo rin but that is highly unlikely. when the first time jeong woo appears in my girl i was like "what? this is the playboy? he is too pretty!!!" and gong chan was so cute and handsome. but now i am rooting for jeong woo. i really love the scene where they were in the movie together. my god that was so sweet of him!! SPOILER!! and in the elevator where he said to gong chan," yoo rin is your cousin right? i like her." finally he took a more active approach.before this he was so willingly to give up yoo rin to gong chan

eh I'm having mixed feelings now :unsure: I want YR to end up with JW and at the same time YR to end up with GC :unsure: :unsure:

the thing that made me like GC is the part when
in the last scene in ep10 when he used her coin to lie and say he wanted her to stay by his side forever as a "cousin"
:wub: :wub: :wub:
anyway,whoever she'll end up with..I want the guy she dumps,lol

Well i prefer the lead actor Gong Chan ever more when he smiles. I like also the scene when he take the coin to lie, whch proves that he has fallen in love with her. I wonder when he'll confess. We'll know what will happen tomorrow !!!

It'll probably be at least 16 episodes. My mom says it's more likely to be 18 or 20 episodes. Especially since the drama has just gotten to its half way point. Everyone's realized who they're now in love with, now they have to fight and endure obstacles for their loves - if you follow the classic formula. That, and you need to figure out the problem of the real granddaughter too. **not really but spoiler warnings anyway** My mom at the beginning thought that Juu Yoo Rin was the real granddaughter, but with the development of the drama ... it seems unlikely that she's the real granddaughter, cuz then, she'd be in love with her cousin and her cousin in love with her, and eh, I can't see Korean drama encouraging related-by-blood incest all that much.

Anyway, good series. New (raw) episode comes out tomorrow, I can't wait. =)

I was wodnering about that..cause there was this part in Episode 8 where the auntie said something about how Gong Chan looks more like his maternal grandfather? So the grandpa might now be his real grandpa..I might be wrong =.= though

I'm absolutely loving this drama too!! Definetly a cross between Full House and My Name is Kim Sam Soon. Well worth watching. Definetly wanna rush through to the end too! ::w00t:
As for my theory, I'm thinking that Secretary Yoong might be the cousin. She seems to be the one doing lots of the looking. That'd be way messed up if it was. And she seems to like the bumpkin look of Ahn Jin-shim!! That could definetly be explainable if she was the true cousin. Not a lot of characters to choose from though. And I agress that having Joo Yoo-rin as the cousin would be incest with Seol Gong-chan! Well, I guess there are dramas sorta with incest like Ireland! :goggle: But this drama is certainly breaking a lot of the conventions. I like how she asks him how he knew where she was when drunk and how she locked the doors of the SUV when he went to buy her medicine. Definetly not a lot of smooth moments. Lots of episodes left, for all we know, she could definelty end up with Seo Jung-Woo!!!

Some people have speculated that for Yoo Rin to be the real grandaughter than Gong Chan would have to be adopted or something...but I highly doubt that. I don't speak korean so I have no idea what the aunt's actual words were...but from the subs I'm assuming that she was talking about Gong Chan's other grandpa...b/c we all have two sets of grandparents don't we? And maybe she was saying how all his good looks came from his other grandfather...

Although I don't promote incest...if Yoo Rin really did turn out to be the real grandaughter (which I hope not) I would still rather have her be with Gong Chan than Jeong Woo...if not with Gong Chan then nobody. :D ...Can you tell I'm not a big fan of girly Jeong Woo...hehehe :mrgreen: Please don't kill me JW's fans... :salut:

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know whether there is a difference between Chinese and Korean customs. First cousins, i.e. children of brothers with same surname are not allowed to get married to each other, however children of brother/sister with different surnames can do so according to Chinese custom! Therefore, if Yoo Rin is the real granddaughter, it should still be okay, isn't it? Haven't you heard the saying of "Kissing Cousins"?

i am totally loving this show,
i laugh along with it and i even feel upset a bit when yoo rin is crying because of her feelings for gong chan she is a really good actress cause those scenes really pull at your heart strings and even jeong woo shows his feelings really well you can always see the tears in his eyes when he's watching yoo rin cry over gong chan and you can see how much he loves her. These scenes really pull at my heart strings and then you get the funny bits which are just hiliarious (ok spelling not good :D ) and now we are coming to the good part where gong chan is starting to fall for yoo rin.
This is a really great show and i am totally hooked as well as loving the soundtrack which is on constant repeat. Thankyou to all the subbers timers etc for makeing it possible to watch this show with the subs it is really appreciated and keep up the good work :D
INSTEAD OF ASKING FOR THE SUBS WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THEM :D

.... I don't know about the actual Korean custom since I have never botherd asking my parents about how Koreans feel about incest, but, being that I am Korean and my cousins are all Korean .... I can't see ANYONE supporting cousin marriage. Like ... ew. It's your family! Perhaps a 1000 years ago when the palace people married cousins and such to keep the royal bloodline secluded, but in the modern day and age? Really, I don't see it happening.

Wow, I don't know which part of China you're from, but if this was a 100 years ago or something, it was accepted. If you did this now, most people would think it pretty gross. :\ It's pretty much incest, which is not accepted in modern day China.

I'm not from China but, originally from Malaysia{ 3rd generation chinese descendent} and now loacated in Australia. Definitely, it's not uncommon or taboo for first cousins, i.e. children of sister/brother with different surnames to get married. Haven't you heard of "Piao" ge and 'Piao" mei getting fixed up by their individual parents! If uncertain, check with your parents, relatives or friends! It's not incest! There may be a possibility of too much insular breeding resulting in, maybe, problems associated with such "close" blood relationship but not INCEST! This does not happen 100 years ago, but, practically is an ongoing process occuring right under your nose without your knowledge.

I come from a pretty traditional family and according to the "elders", cousins are allowed to marry as long as the cousins are not related by brothers....hmm...If there are 2 brothers, theirs children are not allowed to marry, but if it was a 1 brother and one sister, then when they have children...the children are allowed to marry. Apprently some of my really distant cousins still do this...kinda to "keep the wealth within the family"...I still think it's kinda gross though

This drama is awesome. Its definitly up there with Full House for me so far. Have to see how it ends though. And the girl that plays yoo rin is so funny and cute. She can really turn it on for some of the more serious parts of her role. I can see her character from green rose come out a little in those parts. :-)

Btw, does anyone know the artist and name of that french song they played in ep08?

They played it in one of the earlier episodes too, that time in a movie on tv.
The name of the song is "Les parapluies de Cherbourg". full lyrics
but i can't swear it's sung by Monique Leyrac.

Since it's the main song of the movie by the same name, I guess the movie showed earlier was "Les parapluies de Cherbourg".
(I just finished downloading the files so i just saw ep 1 for now, but i looked for the song in ep8)
