It’s been awhile since Kim Sun Ah has been out in the public eye and that’s mostly due to her working less these past two years. This year she did have a headlining K-movie called The Five and drama-wise her last television appearance was two years ago in I Do, I Do with Lee Jang Woo. I miss her both for her brand of powerful woman acting and for the fact that it would be sad to see her career declining because of her age or other such lame reasons. Kim Sun Ah updated her SNS account this past week after months of silence as she posted a picture of her and Jang Hyuk. I’ve known Sun Ah and Hyukkie are really good friends since I love them both and follow their careers, but this might be news to some newer drama fans especially since they have never done a project together. Kim Sun Ah actually discussed her over a decade long good friendship with Jang Hyuk last year when she was interviewed during the filming of her movie The Five. They started out in acting at the same time in the same company and are almost the same age so they quickly became fast platonic friends and over the years their friendship involved discussing work projects and giving each other acting support.
When Sun Ah was filming The Five, she revealed that Jang Hyuk visited her on the set while he was in the vicinity while filming his drama IRIS 2, and even more heartwarming was that he was the only one of her close friends to visit her twice on the set for that movie making. I love that they can sustain a genuine different gender friendship that has lasted even after Jang Hyuk got married and is now the daddy to two boys. They also look sooooo cute together in that selca above that I now want them to do a drama together! I know folks loved the K-version of Fated to Love You but it was just okay for me in terms of keeping my interest and it’s 99% due to me watching the original and knowing the whole story already. Jang Hyuk and Kim Sun Ah are two of the actors in the industry that I find almost always have raging hot chemistry with their costars so why not with each other for once? C’mon drama gods, make it happen! Two years ago they even attended mutual good friend Go Soo‘s wedding together so have some throwback pictures below, as well as some recent solo media pics of Kim Sun Ah as she made the rounds for her movie promos.
This is what Kim Sun Ah wrote as a caption to the secla posted above of her and Jang Hyuk:
“Hyukie who worked so hard as Gun oppa! It was a random coincidence to bump into you, but it was so nice seeing you! Long time no see! Still so handsome, kyah~ Always someone I want to thank, to learn a lot from, who always puts in tireless effort! Hope to be there for each other for a long long time~ just as we’ve been doing until now! Whenever, wherever!! I will always support you^^”
