Suyeon sat in front of the TV in a reverent position.
Today is the day the 2nd part of the famous brother’s documentary airs.
‘When we were filming the first part… that time was really fun.’
Not long ago, while browsing the Internet, she first came across the new word ‘Leeds days’. Manchester United’s midfielder Alan Smith kept shoveling, and people kept saying, ‘Alan did really well during Leeds United’.
She thought that the word was interesting, but suddenly thought of such a question.
‘When was my Leeds period?’
The answer came too easily.
The light and temperature that I felt for the first time after passing through that dark period in my early 20s, when I was stuck in the shell of my heart and could not act.
The days of
The days where I looked forward to tomorrow to the point that every time I went to sleep, it was a waste of time to sleep, even as I practiced over and over again and my throat bled.
‘I am very happy now, but…will such a day ever come again?’
Now, Soo-yeon is a rising new actress.
Works are steadily coming in, and he is being recognized for his acting. Beautiful clothes pour in through sponsorship, and wherever they go, envy and favorable gazes follow.
Still, it cannot be compared with that time. In a nutshell, that time was his Leeds period.
A documentary we filmed together.
After 3 years, the second part came out, and there was no place for him and Ryushin in the second part. ‘Cause he’s gone too fast alone, he’s gone to a faraway place he can’t reach.
He rejoices over his success more than anyone else, but on the other hand, he cannot be without a sense of loneliness.
Slowly but steadily, if I follow along, I just try and try again with the thought that someday I will be able to stand on the same stage again.
The documentary starts at the most peak hour with her eyes wide open so as not to miss a single moment.
On Friday evening, the original entertainment program was pushed aside and the documentary was aired.
As in Part 1, the story begins with a letter consisting of five spellings: Actor.
-Actor, called actor in English. or is a suffix that denotes a person, but it is also a conjunction with the meaning of ‘or’. Then ‘act or something’. What words can you fill in the back of this verse?
The characters on the screen are separated, and a question mark appears in the back.
Act or ?
– Here is an actor. His name is Shin Yu-myeong, and he is a top actor in his 6th year who turned 29 this year. Since his debut, this actor has been truly sensational. A rookie actor, who had been praised for his acting skills in Korea for the first time in just three years, suddenly declared a trip to the United States one day, and domestic public opinion at the time was very critical.
A screen full of data is displayed.
– Shin Yu-myeong, why did you declare your participation in the American ‘Entertainment Audition Program’?
-A rookie actor’s bullshit, is his career collapsing in ‘Hollywood Pong’?
-‘Casting Boat 1 or 2 times. A new celebrity who barely advanced to the next round without much impact, will be eliminated soon?
– A young actor who, despite guaranteed success, chose a fresh start from the ground up. How did he choose it? To that question he answered: Just as there are ‘acts’ and ‘chapters’ in a play, there are moments in life when the curtain has to be crossed.
Re-emerging, Act or ?
Question marks are decomposed and assembled to form a single word.
or 1. Act or Scene
The real story began.
-When he was first offered a casting boat, he was already receiving love calls for his next film from leading domestic directors and producers. But his choice was a casting boat. How did he decide to go to America?
“I was curious about the director, Kyler Earnshaw. He was an unusual director who puts the screenplay for the actors, not the actors for the screenplay, and I expected that attempt would broaden my acting horizons.”
– Surprisingly, he did not choose Hollywood consciously. So, I rejected the ‘seed’ that was offered to me, and joined from the first round. He really participated in the casting boat with the intention of winning.
“But surprisingly, I learned a lot along the way. I met good colleagues and met the best judges. The tight time, difficult tasks, and the missions of performing the best in limited time and resources have grown me. It was also a single scene.”
A play usually consists of three or four acts.
And there are several chapters in one act. The chapter forms a curtain, and the curtain forms a play.
The curtain closes and reopens at the great inflection point where the story changes.
The screen goes back to Eva, who was next to the celebrity, and she asks in a curious tone.
[Then, how many acts did you have when you came to Hollywood? After the first act in Korea, the second act?]
[no. It must be the third act.]
[Then when was the first and second act separated?]
[In 2003. When I first started acting after taking a class called ‘Method Acting’ at school.]
[Ummm… Then you see the life before you start acting as Act 1, and after that as Act 2?]
There were other reasons, but Myung smirked around.
[Yeah. Because life and acting are never separated.]
On both sides of the interview screen, a red curtain opens and closes once.
And from Act 3, Scene 1, the highlight scenes continued.
The image of Ase looking at Hetty with one eye in Mimicry sadly (*data screen).
A famous figure standing in the middle of the glorious Cannes Film Festival, where everyone is giving a standing ovation.
The making video of Missing Child, Decardo and Lil Dylan in a confrontation.
And even standing side by side with director John Claude waving at the production presentation of
Without a single break, the scene from peak to peak really looked like a grand play.
– Act 3 was not so glamorous. But he says In order to create a great look on stage, an actor has to spend 90% of his time behind the scenes not cool. What kind of time is he spending behind the scenes?
Act or ?
The letter made by the second question mark was offstage.
or 2. Act or Offstage
During acting or behind the scenes.
The story behind the scenes began.
[It’s a terrible practice bug. But the scary part is that he is also extremely clever. I don’t practice blindly, I draw an accurate image in my head and practice it in a way that implements it. However, because of his excellent acting skills, the speed of implementation is extremely fast. As a result, you can practice with five or six times the efficiency of the average actor in the same amount of time. A person like that spends twice as much time practicing as others, so how can they not be ahead?]
When Derek appears and evaluates the celebrity like this, Suyeon’s face turns red.
An actor who is rated as having the best acting skills in the world (though it’s now the second time!), was somehow proud of himself at the tremendous praise he received when evaluating fame.
Next appeared is a familiar face even to Soo-yeon, a famous manager Ho-cheol.
-Kim Ho-cheol/ Manager Shin Yu-myung
“Everyone would think it would be glamorous, but in reality, my brother’s life is almost like that of a monk. In order to maintain an accurate body suitable for the character and to distribute the physical strength when acting, exercise and diet management are thorough. From the moment you enter the work, you can think of only acting from 6 am to 12 pm. During the break? It will give you a little time. 7 in the morning to 11 in the evening?”
Famous movements are played back at hundreds of times on the CCTV that Ban Soon-ho installed in his house. The movement is almost constant like a machine.
And a picture of a famous person holding the script anytime and anywhere, and taking pictures of his scripts full of notes, tattered as if torn.
By connecting the pieces of such efforts, the story continues.
– The acting of an actor who was completely immersed in acting like this came to the truth, not acting. both for us and for ourselves.
or 3. Act or Real
Kyler Earnshaw interview.
[Ah, I never thought that Shin Yu-myung was the same person as Shin Yu-myung while acting. It was really Ash. The evaluation of writing the screenplay based on the essence of an actor is disrespectful, and the person named Shin Yu-myeong and As Predator came out quite different. Even so, it was unbelievable that he really turned into an ass when the camera turned.]
[During Mimic Cree’s filming, the script was changed. At that time, everyone said that he was in a state of fame. Otherwise, such an idea cannot come out.]
‘Asuga, I am saying this is not Asu’s choice.’
The famous acting, completely immersed in the character, unfolded enough to feel the heart of the acting target.
[A similar thing happened in Missing Child.]
The writers of Missing Child also agreed.
Not a contrived acting, but a famous acting that completely becomes that person.
As was the case in the past, the degree of fairy tales in Mimickri was truly amazing. After filming the scene where the famous Asu was crying, when the screen of material that could not stop the tears voluntarily came out, all the viewers held their breath.
Then came an interview with psychologist Logan Galllock.
[The acting of a new famous actor is so emotionally assimilated that it feels like an intense virtual experience, just like you and the people who see it. When I saw this actor’s performance, I was so shocked that, frankly, I doubted that he was really an alien. Well, just as the general public can never understand how pianists play with their fingers like that, I am trying to convince myself that it is something that I cannot understand because it is the realm of art. In any case, I think that this level of emotion transmission is an area that has not been possible with previous acting.]
-In that way, his attempt to ‘cross the curtain’ was successful, and we were able to enjoy the enchanting third act.
And now, he enters the fourth act.
or 4. Act or Die
-Live or Die. live or die This is an essential proposition that every human being embraces. But living for him is acting. Life without acting is no different from death, so life and acting coincide.
The screen shows the airport full of people on the day the celebrity returned to Korea.
-He returned to Korea. Many people ask Why?
“Right now, I want to create a work that can only be done here. The reasons for going to the US and returning to Korea are no different. I just made the necessary choices to play a little better.”
A celebrity who speaks calmly as if a little shy.
– He is now about to take on a challenge that has never been done before. It is an amazing challenge that the world will take note of when announced. But this time no one will doubt it. This is because he has already taken the challenge of giving up what he has several times, and has proven over and over that it has become a ‘transition’ in his acting life.
The letters are finally scattered and combined.
‘Act of God’
-God is God in Korean. He is Mr. Shin, and the name of his fan club is ‘God Named’. That’s why fans at home and abroad call him God. Adding the meaning of having divine acting power.
Act of God, in English Act of God.
This word means ‘force majeure’. It was probably force majeure that we met this actor and fell in love with this genius yet sincere and humble real actor.
He plays and lives. And again, we are standing behind a new curtain. What kind of image will the actor who has prepared for the role do his/her best behind the scenes, and will show in the new act?
To be able to watch the curtain open will be our great fortune to live in the same era together.
KBK planning documentary [Actor] Part 2 END.
As she watched the credits go up, Suyeon was already in tears.
So proud. how big is he
‘I too… have to work really hard.’
As she made a firm resolve, wiping the tears from her big eyes with the back of her hand,
Suddenly a bell rang. After confirming the caller, she inhaled in surprise.
It was a famous phone call.
