130102 Movie Director Jo Won Hee Mentioned Yoochun Again on EBS FM
I have been wanting to talk more about Jo Won Hee as his profile and his interest on actor Yoochun is very surprising and amusing.
Movie Director Jo Won Hee again mentioned Yoochun today when he talked about the French Historical novel Les Misérables in his Book Café show on EBS. He said he thought of casting Yoochun if he can remake the movie. He said “Yoochun has a face having both for genius like feeling and sorrow. People with handsome faces, giving sad feeling at the same time are rare”
Les Misérables is considered one of the greatest works in 19th century written by Victor Hugo.
Examining the nature of law and grace, the novel elaborates upon the history of France, the architecture and urban design of Paris, politics, moral philosophy, antimonarchism, justice, religion, and the types and nature of romantic and familial love. Les Misérables has been popularized through numerous stage adaptations, including a musical (1980–1985, 1985–2003, 2006–2008), its 2012 film version, and several other films.

The surprising thing is not that Cho Won Hee adores Yoochun because he has been talking about Yoochun a lot this year (check translation 1 + 2), also wrote many critics on Yoochun’s performance as an actor, and tweeting congratulations every time Yoochun won awards. The thing that amuses me the most is that Cho Won Hee and Yoochun seem to be in 2 different worlds apart.
Cho Won Hee’s first work is Desire to Kill (2010) written and directed by himself and Kim Sang Hwa, acted by Cheon Ho-Jin, Yu Hae-Jin. Just looking at the name, you can tell what type of work it is. Desire to Kill as his debut movie can be considered one extremely heavy work and it is very picky on audience. IMBd rating is 6,9/10 but Rotten Tomato rating seems to be high as it is well loved by people who know a lot about filming art.
Desire to Kill is the debut feature by Owen Cho and Kim Sang-Hwa but you would never know it because this thriller is so well put together with such flair and smart writing it makes many other films from more experienced directors look creatively barren. ( Read full review at 3)
This approach suits the film down to a tee and allows viewers to thoroughly revel in the comedy of proceedings while attempting to piece together for themselves the truth behind Min-ho and Sang-eob’s hatred of each other. On both these counts, Desire to Kill deserves credit for its ingenuity and though the individual brutal altercations are clearly engineered deliberately for maximum comedic effect, they nonetheless succeed with ease without ever feeling predictable.
Desire to Kill references some fairly serious social themes within a quirky and genuinely funny black comedy come psychological thriller, accenting and underlining each with copious amounts of bloody violence throughout. (Read full review at 4)
The fact that he appreciates Yoochun who was an idol and his works which are pretty much easier and trendier to general audiences (Yoochun has been only doing dramas so far) doesn’t necessary prove that Yoochun is an great fabulous breathtaking genius actor. However the fact that some people in the professional industry see the great potential in Yoochun is more than enough to say something and to be appreciated by us. More than any award.
Whether you are a fan or not, Yoochun’s talent, efforts, charms and star power already reserve him a place in the acting industry and he will continue to work harder in the future to keep his spot.
