“Misfortune specialist,” “Queen of tears,” “Little Jeong Yoon-hee.”
Suae (Park Su-ae, 24, photo) is making her feature film debut in “Family,” which recounts the love-hate relationship between a pickpocket daughter with four prior convictions and her ex-cop father. When people think of Suae, they always picture her face marked by tears; they remember the calamity and hurt she embodied in TV dramas like “Love Letter,” “Merry-Go-Round,” and “April Kiss.”
“Family” is also a determined tearjerker of a movie. We met with Suae at a café on Sejong-ro, Seoul on August 20 to talk about her role.
● “I thought about my dad often during the shoot”
“How does it look?”
“It’s cool and stylish!”
The exchange occurs before a shoot, between Juhyun (63), in the role of Ju-seok, and Suae, who plays his daughter Jeong-eun. Juhyun asks the question after having his head shaved to portray his leukemia-inflicted character. Although she is simultaneously shocked, awestruck, and grateful that an actor with so much seniority in the business (Juhyun is over 60 years old) has taken this drastic step for the good of the picture, her response pops with a distinctively youthful sensibility.
She confesses that her own father’s face often overlapped with Ju-seok’s throughout the filming of the movie.

Once in a Summer” to be Released in Japan
HOME > ENTERTAINMENT > ENTERTAINMENT NEWS
“Once in a Summer” to be Released in Japan
The Korean film “Once in a Summer” will be released in Japan on Jan. 27. The movie, which stars two top stars, Lee Byung-heon and Soo Ae--but fared badly at the Korean box office when it was released on Nov. 30--is expected to do well in Japan.
The two stars will also do their utmost for the movie’s success in the island country, as they did in Korea, touring local cities to promote the movie despite its poor performance at box office. They will fly to Japan on Jan. 16 and give interviews with various media outlets to promote the film. Lee visited the neighboring country last year for promotional purposes.
The movie is expected to do well in Japan, unlike in Korea, due to Lee’s tremendous popularity there. It was sold to Japan for US$4 million before its release in Korea.
Another reason for lofty expectations is the success of “Now and Forever, which performed poorly in Korea but was the only Korean movie to make the top five at the Japanese box office last year, as it starred Choi Ji-woo, who is enjoying great popularity in Japan for her role in the hit drama “Winter Sonata.”
The film’s producer, KM Culture, said that it will also be shown at more theaters than anticipated.
Love her in Love Letter!

Actress Soo Ae has completely revamped her image as the "queen of tears." In the MBC weekend drama "9 End 2 Outs," she has broken out of her fragile and elegant shell, playing a 30-year-old, foul-mouthed and disheveled spinster. She has cast off her melancholy mien and transformed into a jaded single woman struggling with life. Working at a small publishing firm, she dreams of becoming a writer, though nobody much cares. She has a baseball-player boyfriend eight years her junior and, thanks to objections from her family and friends, the relationship is going nowhere. As the character Hong Nan-hee, Soo Ae has taken her acting to a new level.
"How many people have realized their dreams at 30?" Soo Ae says. "That's why Nan-hee is so appealing to female viewers. So many opportunities have passed her by and now she's 30 and realizing she's accomplished nothing. Isn't that how it is with most people? I totally understand her."
When asked how she pictures her own life at 30, the actress says, "I'm not really sure because I haven't set any goals, but I think I'll be hard at work. But it could be that phase in life when you have to let go of something. I want to be 32 fast. I feel that by then, I'll be more secure and have become a true woman who knows the world. Marriage? Probably not by then. Spinsters these days are in their late 30s, right?"
Her character gets low and vulgar in the show, boozing it up and cursing people out, and this weekend's installment brings out the worst -- or the best? -- of it. Soo Ae in reality has a husky, neutral voice, which helps her tomboyish performance feel so natural. But her voice hasn't always been a plus. "I've been told many times that my voice would be a detriment to my career," she says. "When I first got started, a lot of viewers posted comments online that they changed the channel because of the way I talk."
"It was odd because I thought of my husky voice as my biggest asset. So I would tell people, 'Keep on listening, you'll get to like it.'"
Soo Ae nearly debuted as a member of a pop idol group. Fresh out of high school, a record agent approached the young stunner on the street in the trendy Apgujeong area. She spent six months in grueling practice, but in the end had no album to put out. "I didn't sing well, but the six months I spent with the team was so fun. I was lucky to get into acting." So what is her off-screen personality really like? "I'm very shy," she says bluntly. "I steep myself in my characters so much that often I get too heartbroken to control myself. I didn't know I had qualities like Nan-hee does. Even my parents are surprised."

Korean actress Soo-ae has joined the cast of upcoming action TV series "Athena," the sequel to last year's hit blockbuster drama "Iris," according to the show's producer Taewon Entertainment on Friday.
"Athena," named after the Greek goddess of war strategy, will be about terrorist acts and threats against the Korean Peninsula and the whole world.
"Soo-ae will be playing Yoon Hae-in, the lead female character who is a double agent working for both the National Intelligence Service and as a spy for a secret organization," a producer from Taewon explained.
They added that Soo-ae was chosen for the role because of her extraordinary acting skills and ability to subtly express many emotions.
The actress will start receiving martial arts training after wrapping up filming of her thriller film tentatively titled "Midnight FM."
Production for "Athena" is scheduled to begin in June in Italy and Switzerland and continue on into six other countries including Singapore and New Zealand. Taewon is aiming at showing the series during the latter half of this year.
Soo-ae made her debut in 2002 with a role in a one-act play on MBC. Her resume includes her roles on the small screen starring in "April Kiss," "Emperor of the Sea" and "Watch 9 End 2 Outs."
She ventured into the big screen thereafter, starring in "A Family" (2004), "Once in a Summer" (2006) and "The Sword With No Name" (2009).

The name of actress Soo Ae has always been followed by words such as "graceful" and "pure." But she does not seem to really like those modifiers according to an interview she gave at a hotel located in Sogongdong on October 14.
Soo Ae said, "I do not want to be defined as a 'graceful' actress even though I suppose I have to appreciate those modifiers. I just began my career as an actress and I still have a long way to go."
In the thriller movie "Midnight FM," which was released on the same day as the interview, Soo Ae plays a radio DJ named Ko Sun Young, who struggles to fight against a psychotic fan to save her own daughter whom he has taken as a hostage.
Soo Ae explained why she had decided to appear in the movie by saying, "I have always wanted to show different images as an actress, and the character Ko Sun Young -- who fights desperately to keep her family safe with a tough demeanor -- looked attractive to me." She added that she had decided to challenge herself not by choosing a thriller movie, but by choosing the role of a strong female character fighting against a villain.
She said that even though she received people's evaluation saying "She looks graceful," she has wanted to become a strong person in spirit, so she had taken roles of characters with a tough will and strong mind such as Empress Myeongseong in the movie “The Sword With No Name.” She continued, "What I wanted to show with my appearance in this movie was maternal love and women's strength. I actually pursue a person with ‘An iron hand in a velvet glove.’”
She reportedly had to go through many difficulties physically and mentally while filming "Midnight FM." From the beginning, she had to act in a situation where she was threatened by the kidnapper, who was played by actor Yoo Ji Tae, while receiving his phone calls in a confined studio. She said, "The confined studio was a very effective setting for a thriller movie, but for me, much more fear swept over me.” She had to reveal her feelings without controlling her emotions while acting, but she had been under so much pressure that she had expended tremendous energy while acting.
In the latter part of the movie, she fought with the villain facing him directly and the fighting scene was very difficult physically. She said, "I had to run a lot while wearing high-heeled shoes. A staff member suggested I wear slippers or running shoes because the appearance of the radio DJ did not have much importance, but the director was against the idea by saying that if I ran while wearing those comfortable shoes, it would be not enough to explain the desperate feelings inside me. I once noisily fell down while running in high heels.”
The movie was released on the day when she came out for the interview. She expressed her anticipation about the movie. She said, "I cannot imagine what the result will be. I wish many people would watch my movie, but the outcome has nothing to do with my wishes."
She recently visited the Pusan International Film Festival accompanying the director Kim Sang Man and actor Yoo Ji Tae to meet the audience in person. She said while smiling, "Whenever I visited the film festival, I had to come back only after participating in the opening ceremony due to the short schedule, but this time, I could meet many audience members directly and I could receive much energy from them. I was not tired at all but I felt happiness during the visit instead."
She introduced herself as an early-morning person who goes to bed early at around ten or eleven o'clock at night and wakes up very early in the morning. She said, "In Pusan, I woke up at half past six and went down to the restaurant to have breakfast, and there was only person in the restaurant. It was Yoo Jo Tae.”
During an interview, she revealed her desire to play many different characters many times. She said, “Usually I have received casting suggestions from works that are usually melodramas, but I want to take various roles in different genres.”
While she disclosed that she would willingly display a comedic appearance while acting in a comedy, she added, “If I have a chance to appear in a work that I like, I want to try to appear in all those works. I am a greedy person.”
Now she is filming the drama “Athena,” which will begin airing from December. She informed the interviewer that she had to practice for four hours a day before she filmed the fighting scenes and shooting scenes. Until next February, when the broadcasting schedule finishes, she will visit six countries such as Japan, Italy and New Zealand to film the drama.
She said, “The filming is in a beginning stage and I am warming up. The decision to appear in this drama was a new challenge for me. I have to reveal and express a complicated character in it.”
