'Hero' Kim Min Jung and Lee Jun Ki, Ready to Break All Rules(?) | 2009.10.15



Kim Min Jung, casting for MBC latest Wed-Thur drama 'Hero' (tentatively named), mentioned her special (?) promise with Lee Jun Ki whom she has worked with before 5 years ago in year 2004 movie 'Flying Boys'.

Kim Min Jung said that, "Lee Jun Ki has passed the script to me a year ago and mentioned that it would be really good if we could shoot the drama together. Because it is very hard to have a chance to shoot a drama together even if the actors have very good relationship with each other. I really appreciate for Jun Ki's thoughtfulness about this." "But it's a pity that I am already tied up with another piece of work back then, hence I am really happy that we are going to have a chance to work together again." Kim Min Jung also mentioned that, "When meeting up with Jun Ki for the new drama, we have already promised with each other that we will break all rules, 'Hero' will be a big success". And hence announce her promise with Jun Ki.

The 'Hero' production staff mentioned, "Having steady acting skill and wonderful interpretation of roles, Kim Min Jung has always merged with the roles in her works. Hence having Kim Min Jung and Lee Jun Ki as partners, we are very much anticipating for the chemical reaction between these two.

On the other hand, 'Hero' from MBC which will be aired on November after the drama 'Heading to the Ground', will be competing with KBS2 TV drama 'Iris' and SBS drama 'You're Beautiful'.

A new look for Kim Min-jung in Hero | 2009.10.18



Kim Min-jung with short hair

Actress Kim Min-jung (New Heart), who came onboard Hero after Han Ji-min dropped out, has a new look for the drama, one meant to draw out her professional side as a female cop. On the one hand, I think Kim is a talented actress who looks cute with the short style, but on the other, I don’t know why dramas think that an unflattering short haircut is the best way to make a woman look “serious.” It didn’t really work for Song Hye-gyo in The World They Live In, who adopted a similarly blunt bowl cut in the name of “professionalism.”

(Face it, kdrama watchers are a critical bunch — who like characters to be pretty or comically ugly, but not really anywhere in between — and paired opposite an uber-popular actor often remarked upon for his pretty features (Lee Junki, that is), I don’t think the look does her any favors.)

Kim’s management company explained that the new image reflects how diligently she is putting herself into her “cute, passionate detective” role, “and is working very hard to deliver bright and healthy fun through her character of Hero’s Joo Jae-in.”



Kim Min-jung’s last role was in the ill-fated baseball drama Strike Love, playing a sweet, innocent character that was well-received by fans of the original manhwa, who felt she captured the essence of that pure character. No doubt this role will be a turn in the other direction. Hero premieres November 11 on MBC.
