EDITORS NOTE: Scent of A Woman–The Wonder of Hope

Well, the last episode of “Scent of A Woman’ is over. I fully expected Yeon Jae to be taken away from her family and loved ones, and us, but to my surprise–the writers decided to leave it in our hands as to the outcome. The ending is fraught not with angst as much as with hope. There is hope, if we choose to embrace it, that somehow a miracle can occur and our hero and heroine can remain together, marry, and raise a family. After all, that was Yeon Jae’s hearts desire from the beginning of this drama.

We all learned early-on that this was not a typical drama. It is adult material; not designed for children, and is really a melodrama in it’s intensity. Our own Kim Junsu played a pivotal role in this drama, and listening to his soothing voice sing “You Are So Beautiful’ made this drama so much more bearable. I was happy to see changes in everyone’s character through the course of this drama, and I rejoiced to see Ji Wook stand up to his responsibilities as a loved one and a son.

Lee Dong Wook played his role as a ‘straight man’ with no exaggerated moves or emotions. He serves as a steady shoulder to rely on and a tender heart that cares deeply for Yeon Jae. He denies her nothing that she asks and only lives for her comfort.

In the course of time, Yeon Jae manages to heal wounds and to build bridges
to support all those around her, including her ‘rival’, Se Kyeong. Seo Hyo Rim (SKKS) is an excellent actress who matures through her own heart struggles through this drama.

This drama is one that will touch lives for years to come, and serves as a reminder to those of us who have lived through the attack of cancer, that grace and hope through God are ever present at our door.

Kim Sun Ah's Promotional Pictures for Makeup Forever

Kim Sun Ah has lately been promoting the makeup brand Makeup Forever. Her pictures for the brand were uploaded on Makeup Forever’s official Facebook page, revealing her radiant youthful looking skin. What’s surprising is that the pictures were not airbrushed or edited!

There are no dark spots on her face, and her skin appears almost translucent. Her makeup was kept light and simple. Because she took such good care of it for a long time, her skin tone is perfect as well. It’s difficult to believe that these pictures are 100% natural with no airbrushing or photoshop.

She showed a natural look as she applied lipstick and HD foundation. It’s the kind of look that makes women want to immediately go out to the store and pick up the product. As a makeup model, she not only promoted the products, but proved that keeping things natural and simple is the best way to go.

Makeup Forever representative Park Jae Min commented, “Kim Sun Ah is a queen of natural beauty. We are using her as a model to promote the charm and beauty that flows out of natural beauties.” He also added that she promotes a “honest and confident” image.

110906 Unable to Appear On Music Programs, JYJ Turns To Popular Dramas..

[Trans] 110904 Unable To Appear On Music Programs, JYJ Turn To Popular Dramas


Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu, Kim Jaejoong. The trio of JYJ, who split from TVXQ to form a new popular group, have all starred in domestic dramas.

After Park Yoochun wrapped up filming for ‘Miss Ripley’ (MBC) that began in May and ended in July, Kim Junsu made a short but strong appearance in the popular drama ‘Scent of a Woman’ (SBS). And now, Kim Jaejoong is playing the role of Department Head Cha Mu Won in ‘Protect the Boss’ (SBS) and stealing the hearts of drama viewers.

Though it’s normal to see idols taking on a side job as actors, JYJ’s situation is quite different. While other singers appear on music and variety programs while taking on roles in dramas, JYJ can only be seen in dramas.

The forerunner out of the trio who found a way to relieve his stress of being unable to appear on music programs through drama appearance is Park Yoochun, as many already know. Last August till November, he appeared in the fusion historical drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ (KBS) and made his mark as an actor who is sought after by drama producers.

Kim Junsu appeared in ‘Scent of a Woman’ as Asia’s top Hallyu singer ‘Junsu’, who Lee Yeon Jae (Kim Seon Ah) wanted to see before she died. ‘You are so Beautiful’, the OST that Kim Junsu performed live during the drama, drives into the viewers’ ears whenever an emotional scene takes place between the two leading roles (Kim Seon Ah, Lee Dong Wook).

Kim Jaejoong is currently being loved as the creator of the love triangle between him, No Eun Seol (Choi Kang Hee) and Cha Ji Hun (Ji Sung) in the drama ‘Protect the Boss’. Critics have stated that though his acting was a little awkward at the beginning, he is improving as the episodes progress.

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “As Junsu has already made his mark in the musical industry, he doesn’t want to take on dramas just yet. But Jaejoong and Yoochun will continue to appear in dramas.

The trio have had restrictions placed on their broadcasted appearances since creating JYJ after leaving TVXQ and SM Entertainment in July, 2009. It has been known that SM has been calling for such restrictions as they believe that JYJ entered a dual contract with C-JeS, the focal point of SM’s lawsuit against JYJ. Though the Courts dismissed SM’s exclusive contract suspension injunction against JYJ and C-JeS in February and laid down the verdict that SM must not interfere with JYJ’s independent activities, JYJ have bene unable to appear on the music programs of Korea’s three major broadcasting companies.

Board of directors member Park Jin Hyung of AStory, the production company of ‘Protect the Boss’ and ‘Scent of a Woman’, stated, “Kim Jaejoong was chosen as the first person to approach for the role of Cha Mu Won, and we deemed that Kim Junsu was the appropriate person to take on the role of a Hallyu star in the drama, as well as to sing the OST,” and “SM’s influence doesn’t reach the drama industry, unlike in the entertainment industry, so we were able to cast JYJ in their respective roles without any problems.” SBS PD Nam Tae Jin of ‘Scent of a Woman’ stated, “No interferences took place in the casting of JYJ.”

EDITORS NOTE: Impressions Of “Protect The Boss” and “Scent Of A Woman”

110822 Editorial Impressions of “Protect The Boss” and “Scent  Of  A Woman”

Earlier I posted my impressions of the first “Protect The Boss” and “Scent Of A Woman’ episodes. At the time, I kept them separate, but as time has gone on, I am beginning to see these two dramas as related one to another. We catch glimpses and inferences; images and cameos that link these two productions together as a part of the work of JYJ. The old saying,”You can’t keep a good man down” applies here because the sheer, raw talent of Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu are what is keeping them in the public eye despite the setbacks from their contract disputes. Even the negative things keep their names in the headlines, and that is a blessing. It means that they are constantly before us and producing excellent work that has to be acknowledged even by those who oppose them.

“Protect The Boss” continues to entertain with that underlying theme of corporate rivalry between the Cha male cousins. This rivalry presents itself as continually desiring and having to share goals and people. Somehow, I believe that they are going to have to realize that they will accomplish more together as allies than rivals. How their love lives will turn out is still hard to guess, but both of them deserve happiness. One element that disturbs me is the amount of violence displayed between parent and son, and subsequently between other characters in the drama. It is treated in a comical manner, but relays a subtle message. Also, the amount of maneuvering, backbiting, and intrique are social problems showcased in “Protect The Boss’, and also in ‘Scent of A Woman’.

“Scent Of A Woman” is one of the best Korean melodramas I have viewed. It has such realism, including the circumstances that bring Lee Yoon Jae to a place of desperation, and the fight of Kang Ji Wook against the old system of arranged marriages. There are so many layers to this drama there could have been three or four dramas produced with the available material.

We are finally seeing by Episode 9 the truth about Lee Yoon Jae’s cancer coming to light. Kang Ji Wook literally stands at the door of discovery of what has been motivating Lee Yoon Jae all this time. Will he be strong enough to withstand this new problem in their relationship on top of every other obstacle that has come their way?  Does Kang Ji Wook deserve to lose every family tie in pursuit of his relationship with Lee Yoon Jae. We will just have to wait and see how this all turns out. We may not get what we want, which would be freedom from cancer and therefore life for Lee Yoon Jae, and deliverance from a corporate world rife with inner intrigues and obligations for Kang Ji Wook, but we can hope for the best conclusion. Since we are all imaginative, we can make our own endings if this turns out negatively. The angst in this melodrama is palpable and touches the heart. We can all learn from watching this drama unfold.
