Kang Gary And Song Ji Hyo Wedding.html
Song Ji Hyo and Gary Kang have long been called the "Monday Couple" because they co-star on the variety show "Running Man." He seems to adore her and they make an appealing onscreen couple.
But Gary, a singer and member of the group Leessang, often has to share her attentions with her co-stars. As an actress Song Ji Hyo has had some attractive leading men, including Choi Jin Hyuk, Joo Jin Mo, Jo In Sung and Lee Dong Wook.
Her latest leading man is the up-and-coming actor Byun Yo Han. Byun will star with her in the upcoming drama "The Ex-Girlfriends Club."
How does Gary feel about this?
Almost every time she appears in a new drama, at least one reporter will ask her how her "Monday boyfriend" feels about her new drama co-star. And her latest drama is no exception.
At the April 30 press conference for the tvN drama "Ex-Girlfriends Club," she was asked how Gary felt about her filming romantic scenes with Byun Yo Han.
"Isn"t Gary jealous," one reporter asked.
The actress said that in some ways Gary was starting to feel like an ex-boyfriend as she was spending more time with Byun Yo Han.
"I meet Yo Han every day besides Monday and Tuesday," said Song Ji Hyo. "If Gary feels like an ex-boyfriend, then Yo Han feels like a new shooting comet."
But she said that Gary did support her and she was grateful for that.
"I recently filmed with oppa and he told me good things about my drama. That he thinks it will be fun. After seeing me with Yo Han, he said we look good together. He supported me. Thank you oppa."
In "Ex Girlfriends Club" Song plays Kim Soo Jin, a woman who decides to direct a film based on a popular webtoon.
The webtoon"s writer Bang Myung Soo writes about and compares his ex-girlfriends. It is only after Kim Soo Jin has committed to directing the film and cannot afford to get out of her commitment that she realizes the webtoon author is none other than her ex-boyfriend. And that makes her a character in the film she is directing. Awkward!
"Ex-Girlfriends Club" also stars Lee Yoon Ji, Jang Ji Eun, and Ryu Hwa Young, who all attended the press conference along with the director Kwon Suk Jang. The drama will air on Fridays and Saturdays, beginning May 8.
Rapper Gary Kang and actress Song Ji Hyo make a very appealing couple. They"ve kissed. They even won "Best Kiss" at the DramaFever awards.
He professed his love for her at awards ceremonies. He gets jealous whenever she interacts with anyone else. Recently, he got jealous when she kissed actor Seo Kang Joon during a game on the show "Running Man." He got jealous when she recently got a phone call.
"Who called you at this hour. I"m curious," he said. "Did you get a boyfriend?"
A fortuneteller on "Running Man" once said that the so-called "Monday Couple" were very compatible and their marriage would be a "match made in heaven." Gary even proposed to Song Hye Kyo on television.
But while their onscreen relationship as longstanding guests on "Running Man," is fun to watch, and she calls him oppa, there is no proof that they are more than friends. And she has had a boyfriend for two years.
She may attend his concerts as part of the duo Leessang. He may have done a cameo in her last comedy, "Emergency Couple." But despite four years of shipping she has dated CEO Baek Chang Joo of her agency, CJES Entertainment, since 2011. And despite rumors that they"ve broken up, the couple still sees each other.
When the news of Song Ji Hyo dating CEO Baek Chang Joo was first made public two years ago, fans tweeted to say they felt bad for Gary.
"Why are people telling me they"re sorry," he responded. "They don"t need to be sorry and I don"t need to hear it."
She obviously likes him as a friend but sometimes it seems as if he likes her more.
He has described his co-star as laid back, sweet and cute. When asked if he would date Song Ji Hyo if she were not dating someone else, he avoided giving a specific answer. He just said he was not very good at relationships. And he would not be good for her.
While she has stated that she has no immediate plans to marry and wants to enjoy her freedom, Gary did feel the need to secure their future together.
"On Monday, you and I are a couple until we die. Even if you marry, come over and sleep at my house on Mondays," he said.
It"s hard to imagine her future husband would agree.
But then at the DramaFever awards Song Ji Hyo and Gary Kang also won the "Best Couple Not Meant To Be" award.
Actress Song Ji Hyo appears in SBS’s Strong Heart and proves herself to be “the Ace” of variety shows.
According to the production crew of the show on November 26, Song Ji Hyo will appear in the November 27 episode and talk about some interesting anecdotes from the beginning of shooting SBS’s Running Man up to this day.

She said, “Recently, my relationship with Kang has gotten very good, and you can see the ‘Monday Couple’ returning on the show,” and surprised everyone at the studio.

In the meantime, the episode also covered the appearances of actor Park Kwang Hyun, So Yi Hyun, Oh Seung Eun, singer Son Dam Bi, and composer Shinsadong-Tiger.
Kang Ye Won and Oh Min Suk wrapped up their rap song "Oh Yeah" at the November 21 installment of "We Got Married".

Director Kang Hyo Jin Dishes On The On-Screen Chemistry Of Uhm Jung Hwa And Song Seung Heon In 'Wonderful Nightmare' [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]
(Photo : Megabox Plus M ) "Wonderful Nightmare" captures the struggles of professional women, as they attempt to balance their careers with homemaking. Uhm Jung Hwa is Yeon Woo, a successful attorney, who mistakenly dies due to a clerical error in heaven. In an effort to fix the mistake, she is given an opportunity to live as a housewife, for one month. Song Seung Heon portrays her newfound husband, whom she struggles to connect with, as a lifelong bachelorette. KDramaStars sat down with director Kang Hyo Jin to discuss the on-screen chemistry of the popular Hallyu stars and his affinity for creating movies with strong female protagonists, during the New York Korean Film Festival.
(Photo : ) KDramaStars: The film incorporates a strong cast of comedic stars with brilliant child actors. What was the casting process for Wonderful Nightmare?
Kang Hyo Jin: With the casting process, Uhm Jung Hwa was the first actor to come on board, for a role. When we first made the offer she declined it. I went for a rewrite after she saw the rewritten screenplay, she accepted the role. As for the child actors, we went through an audition process to find the right cast members. Even then, we continued to struggle with finding the right actor to portray the factor. I approached Song Seung Heon and he accepted the role, which surprised me, at first.
KDramaStars: How did Uhm Jung Hwa and Song Seung Heon create their on-screen rapport? What was it like to work with two stars who are extremely well known within their own right- Uhm as a pop vocalist and actress, Song as Hallyu star for his K-Drama roles?
Kang Hyo Jin: Not just the rapport between them, but because we had child actors with them, I think that also helped build a natural rapport. Midway through filming the romantic scenes, because there was physical contact, that also helped them embody their characters, in a more natural way.
Theres an anecdote about the on-set filming. There was a kissing scene that was going to be a no-cut scene in the film. In the beginning of filming, Uhm Jung Hwa and Song Seung Heon were both concerned that they would not be able to film the scene because they were so awkward. In the end, they were very natural about [romantic scenes] and it wasnt awkward, at all.
Song Seung Heon and Uhm Jung Hwa had no mutual friends. It was their first time meeting and their first project, together. Its kind of weird, because both of their careers span a period of 20 years, but in that time, they had never met each other, through work. They were both really surprised about that.
KDramaStars: Your previous works like Punch Lady and Twilight Gangsters feature strong female protagonists, which is rare within Korean cinema. Do you feel that you are drawn to stories about powerful women? If so, why?
Kang Hyo Jin: I would say that youre right, in that Im interested in strong female characters, especially those who grow stronger through experience, whether it is through struggles or hardships. I know that there is the notion that women need to be protected, but I really like stories that talk about how women develop and grow, through these experiences. But the main reason why Im interested in these types of characters is due to my mother. She was a very strong woman, but at the same time, she was a very warm-hearted person. She passed away, but at the same time, she has been the main influence, in myself, to be drawn to these characters.
I also feel the reason I became a filmmaker is because of my mother. She was an absolute movie buff or cinephile. She was a huge fan of classic Hollywood films with stars like Caroll Baker. Even growing up, I would have these films around me, all the time. I owe my desire to become a filmmaker, to my mother.
KDramaStars: The Korea Times compared Wonderful Nightmare to Miracle in Cell No. 7, in that the film begins as a comedy, but ends on a sad, emotional note. What are your thoughts on the progression of the film and why is there a juxtaposition between the emotionality?
Kang Hyo Jin: I didnt write the original screenplay. I received it and then rewrote parts of it. The main reason I was drawn to the original screenplay was because there was a limited amount of time Jung Uhm Hwas character would spend with this family. I felt like that point would be a good factor in drawing a type of natural, heartfelt warmth, to add a touching element to the story. I guess it is a little similar to Miracle in Cell No. 7, in the structure.
KDramaStars: The film also offers a critique on gender dynamics and the accomplishments of empowered women through Yeon Woo, a character who is forced to endure the trials and tribulations of homemaking, when she was previously accustomed to her independent lifestyle as a lawyer. What was the feedback from the cast members and domestic audiences?
Kang Hyo Jin: Im not sure if youre aware of this, but I was one of the original creators of the film, My Wife is a Gangster. I feel that people unintentionally view me as a director of films that are female driven or female oriented. But it is very hard to gain investors with women in the leading role. When I was working on this project with Jung Uhm Hwa, we talked a lot about making the film into a good project, because the fate of Korean cinema and whether women would have lead roles, depends on how movies like this perform. If it flops or did not do well, to gain more support for women in film. We focused on making this into a good film.
In terms of audience feedback, we invited female journalists and female audiences to view the first screening of the film. At the time, there was some criticism from women that the message of the film was that they needed to get married in order to be happy. As we did a wider release throughout Korea, I think the views of audiences changed. They accepted the film as having a message of unconditional love through family bonds, rather than a commentary that women were meant to fill a specific role.
KDramaStars: What are your thoughts about the inclusion of Wonderful Nightmare in the New York Korean Film Festival? Can you share details about your next project?
Kang Hyo Jin:Its an honor to be invited to the New York Korean Film Festival. Its actually the first international film festival to invite my film, Wonderful Nightmare. Its also my first time in New York, so Im so excited to see my film screen in such a wonderful theater and museum. My next project is likely to be a thriller/action film with another leading female character. Its a pretty edgy and dangerous film. Im in the process of writing and also talking to the investors about the project.
She used to be chic and sad. Kang Sue-jin, the pinnacle of the Korean National Ballet and prima ballerina of the Stuttgart Ballet, made an ideal selection Onegin, one of the vital perfect drama ballets in the overdue 20th century.
She showed superb ways and mature functionality as she played Tatyana in Onegin carried out via the Stuttgart Ballet at the Seoul Arts middle in Seoul from Friday thru Sunday. in spite of her 170 centimeter (5.6 feet) height, she gave the glance of waking on clouds and displayed either gracefulness and stability.
Unlike classical ballet, which values the sophistication of dances over a plot, drama ballet maintains the framework of classical ballet and highlights the feelings and movements of characters. For such reason, audiences are inspired otherwise dependent on how ballerinas carry out emotions. In this regard, Kang Sue-jin changed into obviously working out Tatyanas feelings. Audiences were immersed in her performance in Act 1 where Tatyana, an blameless country girl, writes down her love to Onegin, an aristocratic youth, in a letter, Act 2 where she is rejected by Onegin in her birthday party, and Act 3 where she who is married to Prince Gremin loves and rejects Onegin who belated got here to her and confessed his love to her.
Though Kang was clear of the level for 16 months since final years Madam Butterfly, her performance remained solid. In particular, the noted reflect pas de deux in Act 1 Scene 2 and the remorseful about pas de deux in Act 2 scene 2 were outstanding. Kang made no mistake in a high-level turning methodology in the mirror pas de deux where Tatyana dances with the phantom of Onegin whilst having a look into a mirror to look her long term husband with friends. She showed restrained good looks and Tatyanas pain in the remorse pas de deux where she rejects Onegin who confesses his love to her after a long time.
Kang has said, i might never regret even supposing I give up ballet today. Audiences gave her a status ovation after her last performance in Korea and neglected her retirement.
On the primary day of the performance, Kang Hyo-jung, every other prima ballerina of the Stuttgart Ballet, showed impressive performance gambling Olga, Tatyanas more youthful sister. Even five hours prior to the performance, some audiences who failed to get a price ticket covered up to shop for a ticket for a seat with limited visibility this is sold best for the day.
When it comes to Song Ji Hyo, Gary"s were given not anything yet excellent things to say! This beyond November 2, one Chinese media outlet printed an interview it conducted with Gary.

Gary continued, "Some other folks think that it"s strictly trade between us. They say, "Those two are handiest acting like a couple to make money," but we do it for amusing and we are in the procedure of arising our characters."
"It"s the similar with the alternative members. It"s now not that Kwangsoo acts dumb not to make money. Of course, there are individuals that don"t like it, but for the folk that do, we do our best."
Gary concluded by way of appearing some love for "Running Man," saying, ""Running Man" is an unforeseen success for me. It"s luck that I did the show, and an analogous might be stated for the enthusiasts I met via it. It"s the biggest luck in my life."
Gary Kang discussed his "Running Man" co-star Song Ji Hyo in a recent interview with the Chinese media. Interviews usually include a question about the singer"s relationship with his co-star as so many viewers like to imagine they are also a real life couple. His comments probably did not discourage fans from imagining the co-stars as a couple outside of their TV appearance.
In the interview, which was quoted by the international streaming source Viki.com, Gary attempted to satisfy media curiosity about their relationship.
"Song Ji Hyo is a good colleague. Some people think that our relationship is purely a business relationship. Some people say that we pretend to be a couple in order to earn money. I can understand that, but at the same time, some people like to see us flirt."
After so many years of working together he admits that they have become fond of each other and like to tease each other.
"We have appeared together on "Running Man" for six years now, so it isn"t awkward to tease each other. There is certainly an element of fiction in it for all of us, but not all of it is fake and we enjoy the process."
He said that their ongoing flirtation was part of trying to please the audience and that he is both happy and grateful to be on the show.
It has only been a few months since the last time that Gary discussed their relationship. That discussion took place on an August 3 episode of "Healing Camp."
At the time he said that their love line did not work.
"I doesn"t work no matter how hard I try. It"s been five years. Five. I could"ve had real feelings for her during that time, but I"m solely focused on work."
At the time he insisted that they had no relationship outside of work and that actually dating might create workplace problems.
"If we really do start dating and we happen to split, I feel like one of us has to leave the show so that"s why I"m just focused on work."
On August 26 Gary and Song Ji Hyo were seen at Changsha Airport in China. They were on their way to participate in the Chinese variety show "Day Day Up."
Passers-by photographed them holding hands as they hurried through the airport. No camera were running at the time.
And yet they continue to insist they can only be friends because they work together. What might happen if they did not work together? Hard to tell.
The Monday Couple continues to be one of the most liked on-screen duos. Whether it"s all fake, all real or just a little exaggerated, viewers can"t get enough of them.
Gary mentioned his “Monday lover” Song Ji Hyo an in interview with a Chinese media.
When asked what Song Ji Hyo manner to him, he said, “She is a superb colleague. Some other people think that we are in a industry relationship. Some individuals say that we faux to be a couple so as to earn money. I will realize that, yet at the similar time, some of us like to peer us flirt.”
He said, “We had been acting on ‘Running Man‘ in combination for 6 years, so it isn't awkward to tease every other. There is no doubt a part of fiction in all of us, but no longer all of it's miles faux and we revel in the process. Lee Kwang Soo isn’t pretending to be stupid simply because he needs to earn money. it's all a a section of looking to make things appealing and amusing for the viewers. We won’t be ready to delight everyone, but we paintings demanding for the those who love us.”
Gary ended through thanking “Running Man,” pronouncing “The display is an unforeseen fortune in my life. i'm so fortunate to have been concerned with it, and i'm so glad to have met such so much of folk via it.”
Gary spoke about a jinx he has.
Gary was once in the television display "Strong Heart" in the year 2011. He said, "I get a name song each and every time I get a divorce with my girlfriend. I haven"t had a female friend in 4~5 years since my debut".
"I went to a club after the primary album promotions ended and I met my lady friend whilst dancing with her. Then we broke up and that"s when our title song for the 3rd album got here out".
Gary said, "After that my girlfriend and I again and again were given back in combination and then broke up again, leading to 3 more songs. She"s married now".
Meanwhile, Gary came out with his first album in 2002. The song "Butt" had excessive lyrics and they were adult rated.
