It’s an understatement to say that Moon Chae Won had a great 2011. Last year was a critical breakthrough for her, as she had a record smashing movie Arrow: The Ultimate Weapon along with a ratings hit drama in The Princess’s Man. Since both projects are sageuks, and she cut her teeth on The Painter of the Wind, it’s not a stretch to say she’s becoming the reliable go-to girl for period pieces. She’s got the look and the gravitas down pat, and her sageuk line readings are lovely to boot. In the March issue of High Cut magazine, Moon Chae Won reminds us that she is a fashionable and modern young woman in real life, lest we get too attached to her sageuk personas. Love these pictures, and she’s really a young actress to watch. She knows how to pick her projects for the most part, and she continually improves.
For those of you in Korea, Moon Chae Won is holding a fan meeting in Seoul at the end of March. It’s nice to see talented young stars really cement their place as the real deal, with both critical and popular success.
