'Twenty' Actor Kang Ha Neul Shows His Endless Charm During Singapore Showcase

'Twenty' Actor Kang Ha Neul Shows His Endless Charm During Singapore Showcase

(Photo : Ong Melin | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) Korean actor Kang Ha Neul was in Singapore last month to attend a series of events including a public showcase, meet-greet session and a private fan meeting. In conjunction with the Korean Film Festival, the actor also attended the film screening of his coming-of-age comedy Twenty, in which he stars alongside Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jun Ho.

Despite having flown in at midnight, the actor showed no signs of jetlag or tiredness at all. Quite the opposite, in fact, he was seen interacting closely with his fans right upon his arrival and trying to fulfill their requests and wishes as much as possible.

(Photo : Syafiqah Shah | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) For his first ever Singapore fan event, Kang Ha Neul was pleasantly surprised and happy to see a large turnout at his Plaza Singapura public showcase. Decked in a formal midnight blue suit and slicked back hairstyle, the 25-year-old was nothing short of suave and charming. His tall stature of 1.82m might seem intimidating but his bright toothy smile and approachable personality was what had fans squealing in delight.

(Photo : Syafiqah Shah | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) The down-to-earth actor showed off versatility by singing "The Three Things I Have Left", a song from his TV drama, Angel Eyes. The actor let on that singing is a hobby of his and admited to practicing his singing at home. However, when asked about the possibility of releasing an album in the future, Kang Ha Neul sheepishly laughed it off saying, "No no no no. I am just (an) actor."

(Photo : Ong Melin | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) The actor"s first impression of Singapore was that "Singapore is ... uh very, very hot. (laughs) But ... beautiful view and beautiful hotel. Beautiful food and beautiful drink." His efforts at conversing in English to his best ability were certainly impressive, never mind his lack of vocabulary! The audience certainly had a laugh listening to the actor speak to them directly.

(Photo : Ong Melin | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) The highlight of the showcase was when lucky fans were picked by the star himself and had the opportunity to play a game on stage. Upon reaching the stage, fans were warmly welcomed into his arms with a handshake and a hug, initiated by Kang Ha Neul. Throughout the event, he was seen dispensing limitless amounts of fan-service such as giving heart signs, posing his signature "v" sign, linking arms and replying to shouts of love confessions from fans.

(Photo : Ong Melin | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) The first game, "Song Charades" required the fans on stage to listen to a song via a headset and try to hum or sing the song. Kang Ha Neul then had to guess the title and singer of the song. As the fans were rather shy and unable to do a proper humming, Kang Ha Neul resorted to seeking help from the audience and had a scrunched-up expression most of the time as he was deciphering what the answer was. He made many adorable mistakes such as identifying H.O.T"s hit song "Candy" as a Sechs Kies song, to which he profusely apologized and corrected the error. He also appeared to be a YG Entertainment fan as he tended to guess 2NE1 or Big Bang as the artist whenever he is unable to identify the song. The game ended with the winner walking away with a polaroid selfie with the star. However, being the angel that he is, Kang Ha Neul requested for a group polaroid shot with all the participants and a special solo shot with the winner. He dispensed another round of hugs and smiles before waving the fans off stage.

(Photo : Ong Melin | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) He went on to answer some questions from the media and ensured eye-contact with each media personnel who asked a question. KpopStarz asked why his signature pose is a "V" sign and if there was a significant meaning behind it, to which he replied that he feels awkward without the pose and wouldn"t know what to do with himself. When the rising actor was asked which type of commercial he would be interested in doing, the coffee-lover shyly responded that a coffee advertisement would be wonderful but thinks he might be too ambitious about it. He also expressed his wish to work together with his Twentyco-stars, Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jun Ho again in future.

(Photo : Syafiqah Shah | Special Thanks to KMTV ASIA) Kang Ha Neul showed his gratitude by singing yet another song, "I Choose to Love You." Despite his shyness, he decided to sing live without any background music and asked for fans to sing along. His sincere heart certainly touched the audience. His final gift for those present was a group selfie together. He even acceded to the request of the second-level fans and took a selfie with them as well. He then made a closing speech to thank his fans for turning up and supporting him, and expressed that he hopes to return to Singapore many more times in future. The showcase came to a closure with a group of lucky fans getting a group photo with the star on stage.

Director Kang Hyo Jin Dishes On The On-Screen Chemistry Of Uhm Jung Hwa And Song Seung Heon In 'Wonderful Nightmare' [EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]

News via kdramastars.com

(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.

Director Kang Hyo Jin discusses his film, (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.
