It’s a testament to the fame of Yoon Eun Hye and the notoriety of Park Shi Hoo that even the mere mention of them possibly doing a cross-border C-movie together gets the internet all abuzz. The movie Love After Love (爱后之爱) is slated to start filming in November with an eye towards a summer 2015 release meaning the casting confirmations should be coming down any day now. It’s fine for anyone to have an opinion on this potential casting but some opinions are going to have a stronger impact than others.
Yoon Eun Hye’s own agency The House Company changed its name to Jarmy Entertainment last month and her official fanclub in Korea is now called Amazing (as in Amazing + Grace which is her English name). The official staff of Amazing have come out and issued a fanclub wide release that the admins do not support Yoon Eun Hye doing this movie with Park Shi Hoo and will be collecting all the fan reactions and submitting it to Jarmy in hopes of persuading Yoon Eun Hye not to accept the role. The response has been overwhelming – YEH’s Korean fans are almost uniformly against her doing this movie.
I don’t think Amazing is revolting but rather acting like a concerned parent trying to give Yoon Eun Hye good career advice. I know Yoon Eun Hye is clearly interested in moving into the Chinese entertainment market whether through movies or dramas, last week she was in Beijing at the first annual Chinese Korean Share Your Dream Short Film Festival where she was the honorary festival ambassador along with Chinese actor Qin Hao (above). She can still do a Chinese work, but maybe just not with this particular movie project.
I personally don’t think Park Shi Hoo should, like, never act again or slink off to a ditch somewhere away from the public eye. Legally he was not convicted of any wrongdoing and as a lawyer I can’t subscribe to public castigation by allegation only. With that said, I personally will have a hard hard time watching Park Shi Hoo as a romantic lead, he would do better at this point in his career in being anything other than some swoony onscreen male character. When a good chunk of the viewing audience associates him with sleeping with a drunken passed out woman without her consent, I’d say it’s going to be a hard sell styling himself as a dream man. Other than for his devoted fans, of course.
If I were Park Shi Hoo’s agent (which is either himself or his brother I think since he has his own agency), the recommendation is that he should play serial killers and vengeful assassins and mentally challenged underdogs, characters that have nothing to do with wooing a lady and selling his charm. I’m sure Park Shi Hoo’s diehard fans think nothing of seeing him onscreen as a lady killer but the general public is probably not ready for that yet. Love After Love is a straight up romantic melo movie about lovers separated and finding love again, there is like no other thematic thread going on other than for the lublublub part.
Amazing staff 입니다.
