I invariably want to reach in there and hug Lee Jun Ki for always managing to put a smile on my face. My boy has been in China since last December filming the upcoming romance C-movie with actress Zhou Dong Yu and now the first stills are out. and are soooo cute! The Chinese title is Under the Silician Sun but the English movie title will apparently be Begin Again. Filming has been on location in Shanghai up until now and will soon move over to Italy for the picturesque Sicily shoot.
The production invited the media on set during the filming of a scene where Lee Jun Ki’s character did a song and dance number to woo Zhou Dong Yu, which is totally making use of all of Lee Jun Ki’s multi-talents if you ask me. The leads also met the press which is when Jun Ki surprised his leading lady with a birthday cake to celebrate her upcoming birthday a few days early. The guy’s a considerate charmer to be sure, and luckily he scored a lovely and talented C-actress as his leading lady for his first Chinese project debut. Check out all the cute pics from the set where Jun Ki is his usual dynamic and/or intense self when acting.
On an unrelated note, who else thinks Zhou Dong Yu looks like a face-twin for Park Ha Sun and seeing her with Lee Jun Ki brings back Two Weeks memories? Park Ha Sun is usually flat with her onscreen chemistry but Two Weeks was one her rare shining performances so the resemblance with Zhou Dong Yu is one I’ll chalk up to being a good sign.
