Even after IU apologized for the talk surrounding the lyrics in her song “Zeze,” critics and supporters continue to discuss about the translation of her lyrics.
Writer Soh Jae Won wrote on his private Twitter, “Even in art we recognize taboos. If any individual dragged my natural paintings of art across a boundary line and used ‘art’ as a justification, i might curse them. We will have to respect limitations in order that art can remain art.”
In contrast, movie critic and television personality Heo Ji Woong took a supportive stance by way of criticizing the publishers of “My candy Orange Tree.” “It isn't appropriate for publishers to present a strict e book for interpreting literature,” he said. “All literature is re-discovered thru every person’s freedom and skill of interpretation. the nature Zeze would now not trust his publishers.” The publishing corporate had up to now released a observation criticizing IU’s lyrics.
Novelist Lee Wae Soo was once asked by netizens for his opinion at the issue. He answered cryptically, “When you pass to an exhibition, there are symptoms announcing ‘do not touch the displays.’ Why do you think is?”
Meanwhile, Professor Jin Joong Kwon took the maximum vocal stance on the issue. “Believing the theory that publishers can monopolize the interpretation of literature is ridiculous in this generation unless one is totally ignorant,” he said. “Even when an writer writes a book, they want to not communicate about the interpretation. So why are publishers, those that are best promoting books, asserting we ought to try this or that? If you’re selling books, you wish to guard the information and refinement of literature. The focus on fishnet stockings and poses… With what eyes are you seeing? Please forestall thinking grimy thoughts.”
From the track sphere, singer-songwriter Yoon Jong Shin expressed his own opinion. “When I see folks revel in mind and emotions paying attention to my music that I may not have imagined, this is a glorious feeling. it's not false impression or misinterpretation. It's miles the liberty of one’s own imagination. I can’t regulate the interior of people’s heads, adding how they specific themselves. i'm just thankful that they took the time to hear my work.”
(Photo : KDramaStars) Following the success of the cable hit "Misaeng," more drama writers who once worked for the major Korean channels MBC, KBS or SBS, are choosing to write dramas for the cable networks. And some talented actresses are choosing to star in them.
For example, Kim Go Eun has a cable channel as the outlet for her first drama experience while Choi Ji Woo and Jeong Ryeo Won are making the switch for the first time.
Where the writers go, the acting talent may follow.
According to an article in the Korean media outlet joins.com, cable channels may offer writers more creative and casting freedom. The publication quoted culture critic Lee Hogyu saying that the major television stations often focus on casting the biggest stars possible for a drama and that may alter the intent of the screenwriter and director.
Take the case of "Misaeng, which was originally considered by one of the major television channels. The drama"s producers decided to go with a cable channel rather than make requested changes to the content or cast a major star in the leading role. Instead the producers cast ZE:A"s Im Si Wan in the lead role of a former baduk player who struggles to succeed in office life.
The drama explored some uncomfortable territory when examining the Korean workplace but the producers did not compromise and their efforts paid off with a few Baeksang Arts Awards.
"They came to tvN after they were asked to change the content," said Hogyu. "And the result was a big hit."
Writers may increasingly choose this option, said Hogyu because offers them a chance to be more creative.
Two more writers that recently chose cable are So Hyun Kyung and Kim Eun Hee.
So Hyun Kyung who wrote screenplays for the hit dramas "Shining Inheritance," "49 Days," "Prosecutor Princess" and "My Daughter Seo Young," has written the script for "Twenty Again" which stars Choi Ji Woo and Lee Sang Yoon. It"s the first cable drama for So Hyun Kyung and also Choi Ji Woo"s first cable drama in 20 years of acting. The drama begins August 28.
(Photo : Temptation) And then there is Kim Eun Hee, who wrote the script for the dramas "Three Days," "Phantom" and "Sign." Her most recent drama "Signal" was written for tvN. The drama, based on the Hwaseong serial murders, will air in the beginning of January 2016 and stars Lee Je Hoon as a modern day detective who solves crimes with a detective from the past via a mysterious walkie talkie.
Noh Hee Kyung, who wrote the screenplay for "It"s Okay That"s Love" will also write her next drama for a cable network.
Anticipated cable k-dramas include "Cheese In The Trap," starring Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun, and "Bubble Gum," starring Jeong Ryeo Won and Lee Dong Wook.
"Cheese In The Trap" will be the first drama for Kim Go Eun, who has enjoyed a short but successful career in film, appearing in "Monster," "Coin Locket Girl" and "Memories of the Sword." And she chose a cable channel for her first small screen role.
It"s not the first drama for Jeong Ryeo Won, but it is the first cable drama. Jeong previously starred in the MBC hit "My Name Is Kim Sam Soon" and the SBS hit "History of a Salaryman."
Popular Korean drama writers are turning around to cable TVs from groundwave TVs.
Writers adding So Hyeon-kyeong, Kim Eun-hee-I and Noh Hee-kyeong are going to offer dramas for CJ E&M tvN beginning this month to the start of next year.
Because the writers are ranked best for their influential energy on groundwave TVs, this style is considered a vital exchange instead of just an easy transfer.
Writer So Hyeon-kyeong, well known for "Shining Inheritance", "49 Days" and "My Daughter Seo-yeong", will take answerable for the script for "Twenty Again", which starts on August 28th. whilst writer So moved to paintings for cable TV, Choi Ji-woo"s new movement, who chose a non-groundwave television drama in 21 years since she debuted, could also be noticeable. it's been made up our minds purely in response to her accept as true with with the writer"s ingenious ability. The male lead Lee Sang-yoon also grabbed writer So"s hands since he evolved the paintings dating with the writer in the past thru "My Daughter Seo-yeong".
It"s the similar case for writer Kim Eun-hee-I. She used to be enjoyed for her dramas, "Sign", "Ghost - Drama" and more, while she presented the unusual contents without lacking the attraction to popularity. She could also be uniquely identified for her suspenseful writing skills, which make the audience feel as though they were looking at a film at each and every episode. She is returning initially of next year with a drama in response to Hwaseong serial homicide case. Even though she used to be discussing to acquire an airtime on groundwave television since the start of this year, she has selected tvN to reserve freer environment.
Writer Noh Hee-kyeong is making plans a drama going by way of a tale about ladies in old age. As she has at all times wrote about human sensibility and sincerity, she is recently writing in response to the similar concept. After the of entirety of "It"s Okay, That"s Love" remaining year, she chose to transport to cable television to put across more reports in her writing.
What may neatly be the explanations for the big name writers to take a look at to paste with tvN? Culture critic, Lee Hogyu said, "Groundwave TVs chance the entirety to forged popular A-list stars, the end result finally ends up with the assignment being suggested to an unforeseen direction in many cases. For example, "Incomplete Life" also used to be being discussed with groundwave TV, yet they got here to tvN as they were asked to modify the content. And the end result used to be a large hit. Writers make a selection non-goundwave TVs so a ways as they would possibly be able to reserve their correct to be more ingenious with what they write, even if it'll mean a bit bit more room".
There would be no k-dramas without the fun scripts that k-drama writers create. They deserve applause for delivering hours of entertaining fun. And occasionally k-dramas also include characters that write for a living or dream of becoming writers, even k-drama writers.
Here are six dramas that feature writers as leading characters. Some of them start out as successful but others only achieve success after they resolve their drama struggles.
1. Kim Sa Rang may the latest writer character. Her character was ghostwriting Joo Jin Mo"s love story in "My Love Eun Dong," when she realized that she was Eun Dong the woman he was searching for. A car accident had wiped out her memory. By the end of the drama she gets her memory back and a chance to use her talents as, of all things, a drama writer.
2. Park Seo Joon was a famous novelist in "Kill Me, Heal Me." He carefully protected his identity so he that fans would not besiege him. He even sometime praised himself anonymously. But he also shamelessly used details of his sister"s private life to create compelling novels.
3. Jo In Sung played a best-selling mystery novelist and radio disc jockey in "It"s Okay, That"s Love." His character may have achieved success as a writer but his personal life was a mess owing to some troubling delusions and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Fortunately, he falls in love with a psychiatrist, played by Gong Hyo Jin, who helps him cope with his personal problems.
4. Song Hye Kyo is a sweet but somewhat nave character in "Full House." The aspiring screenwriter loses her home to a famous actor, played by Rain. And while this causes all sorts of complications in her living situation, it does ultimately lead to the realization of her dream, becoming a successful writer. And living with Rain is not all bad, as you might imagine.
5. Jung Ryeo Won is a rookie writer in "The King of Dramas," which is a drama about writing dramas. To accomplish her dreams of writing dramas, she must work with the CEO of a production company, played by Kim Myung Min, and the self-absorbed but attractive star, played by Choi Siwon.
6. Byun Yo Han was a webtoon writer in "Ex Girlfriends Club." He had the good luck to have his webtoon turned into a film. But since it was about his ex-girlfriends, he had the bad luck to have to deal with them as a result of the film deal.
