[Interview] “The Shameless” Jeon Do-yeon, “Cannes supports my potential”

Jeon Do-yeon"s name is all about trust. The audience always has high expectations from her as an actress and not just a star. There is no need for promoting her stardom as she herself induces curiosity about a movie and builds trust.

The same goes for "The Shameless" which was invited to the 68th Cannes International Film Festival for its potential. Jeon Do-yeon won the Best Actress at Cannes in 2007 for "Secret Sunshine" and "The Shameless" was her fourth visit to Cannes. We met Jeon Do-yeon in a café in Seoul after she returned from Cannes.

Shinhwa′s Kim Dong Wan has a surprise meeting with EXO′s Su Ho and rising star, actor Ji Soo.

According to MBC I Live Alone staff, the upcoming episode will show Kim Dong Wan heading to Pohang to prepare for his new movie Glory Day.

Having 13 years of acting experience since Children of Heaven in 2002, Kim Dong Wan headed to the movie set several days early to have a time to get closer to staff and actors.

As soon as he arrived in Pohang, Kim Dong Wan especially had a surprise meeting with Su Ho and Jisoo, who were already in the area due to fimling.

With a pretty large age gap between him and the younger actors, an awkward atmosphere seeped in despite efforts to get close. Kim Dong Wan was born in 1979, Su Ho in 1991, and Jisoo in 1993.

On his alone time, Kim Dong Wan traveled to noteworthy areas in Pohang, taking photos and presenting snacks to the staff.

The episode will air on May 29.

PaekSang honors new, veteran stars

This year"s PaekSang Arts Awards honored both experienced veterans and experimental youngsters.Actor Choi Min-sik took home the grand prize at the 2015 edition of the ceremony on Tuesday evening for his portrayal of the complex, emotional battle of Admiral Yi Sun-sin (1545-1598), one of Korea"s most beloved war heroes, in the record-setting film "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" (2014).

Choi Min-sik

Na Young-seok, the star TV producer behind some of Korea"s most watched and talked about entertainment programs such as "Grandpas Over Flowers", also won the grand prize at the awards, which honors talent in both film and television.This marks the first time an entertainment show producer has clinched the grand prize in the event"s half-century history, which some critics say reflects how these programs are the hottest format on Korean TV nowadays compared to drama series, which formerly dominated the tube.It was notable that PaekSang honored impressive acting skills regardless of how popular the actors were or the length of their career.For instance, actor Lee Sung-min, who delivered the regrets and passion of a middle-aged, average Korean office worker in tvN"s drama "Incomplete Life" (2014), won the best actor award in the TV category. Before the show, Lee had mostly played supporting roles and hadn"t received much spotlight. It was the actor"s first PaekSang.In fact, "Incomplete Life" was one of the brightest stars at the awards, beating rivals from terrestrial channels KBS, MBC and SBS, which are the usual winners. Both the best director award and the best male newcomer award went to two of the people behind "Incomplete Life": producer Kim Won-seok and actor Si Wan."Viewers saw from "Incomplete Life" more than what I performed in it", Si Wan said. "It goes to prove that "Incomplete Life" had that much more significance and that there are many "Jang Geu-raes" in the world", referring to the character he played, an entry-level office worker who lacks wealth and higher education.For best actor in the film category the jury decided Lee Seon-gyoon and Jo Jin-woong of action movie "A Hard Day" (2013) were equally as deserving and conferred on both the award. It was the first time in 40 years for the best actor award to be given to two individuals. The best movie director award was also given to Kim Seong-hoon of "A Hard Day".As for the best actress award in film, veteran Yeom Jeong-ah, who played an irregular worker at a mart facing a sudden layoff in "Cart" (2014), took home the prize. The same award in TV went to Song Yoon-ah, who played an equally desperate character in MBC drama series "Mama - Nothing to Fear" (2014), about a single mom who becomes terminally ill.SBS series "Heard It Through the Grapevine" received the best drama award. Ko Ah-seong, who appeared on the show, took home the best new actress award. "I found the screenplay [of "Heard It"] so interesting that I"m concerned I"ll find all the scripts I"ll get in the future to be dull", she said. "Revivre", a movie by veteran director Im Kwon-taek, won both best film and best supporting actress (Kim Ho-jeong). The movie stars Ahn Seong-gi as a man who finds himself attracted to a young and beautiful woman while his wife is dying of a brain tumor. Kim Ho-jeong plays the wife.Best new actor and actress awards went to K-pop star-turned-actor Park Yoo-chun for "Haemoo" (2014) by Bong Joon-ho, and Cheon Woo-hee for indie film "Han Gong-ju" (2013).
