In the March issue of the fashion magazine “Cosmopolitan” to be published on the 20th Feb, the trio, Chae Rim, Kim Sun Ah and Kim Won Hee (named from left to right in the picture) will become reporters, a first for them as well as a first in the record book.
Placed among the ranks of top Korean stars, Kim Won Hee is one of the representative host in the Korean entertainment circle, Kim Sun Ah with her portrayed healthy image through her many projects and Chae Rim with her popularity due to her amiable personality. Three of them will begin a series of activities as star editors.
Before becoming avid readers of “Cosmopolitan”, the three had dreamt of being a reporter one day. In this magazine section called the “3 Editors Project”, they will reveal their strong but less-known to the public, friendship with each other and also their unique thoughts about wanting to become a reporter.
Often when reading magazines, Kim Sun Ah would think to herself “If I were to interview an actor, can I use my acting experience as a basis to try to direct the interview in a different angle?” She said: “If I have the chance to be a journalist, I hope to do an interview with the current hottest ‘Boys Before Flowers’ F4. I hope the interview will not be conducted in an interviewer and interviewee relationship but a relationship that is more relaxed and casual, like an elder sister with her younger brothers.”
Their journey as journalists will be published in the March (and possibly subsequent) issues of the magazine. So check it out if you are able to get hold of one.
As reported by the media, the female lead of the upcoming MBC weekend drama “Good Job”, Myung Se Bin, has quit her role due to deteriorating health. As such, the production team has been actively trying to find a replacement and in the end decided for Chae Rim to play the female lead character Lee Kang Joo.
This will be the third time that Chae Rim is making a collaboration with writer Park Ji Hyun. Previous cooperation includes “Loving You” and “All About Eve” back in 1999 and 2000 respectively.
The drama producer said: “The optimistic and healthy image portrayed by Chae Rim makes her very suitable for playing the leading role Lee Kang Joo, an unwed mother who is able to face her true feelings in front of love. I’m anticipating her performance here.”
In regards to this, Chae Rim said: “As an actress, this is a very difficult decision to make. To tell the truth, I’m a little afraid, but because I have worked with the writer(teacher) in the past and they yielded positive results, as long as the writer needs me, I will participate even if I can only contribute a little. I think this is the basic ethic of an actor. In addition, the enthusiasm of the production team and charm of the character were also the factors that influenced my final decision.”
As a Korean actress that enjoys a high popularity in China, Chae Rim had previously intended to take on a Chinese drama, but because of this project, her schedule would have to be adjusted accordingly. MBC “Good Job” will replace “My Life’s Golden Age” and is scheduled to air beginning mid March.
