[Article] So Ji-sub and Han Hyo-joo Promote Film 'Only You' in Japan
Hallyu stars So Ji-sub and Han Hyo-joo visited Japan to promote their film Only You which will open on the 30th of this month.
During a press conference held in Tokyo on June 7th, the two stars gave their impressions of each other with So complimenting Han about her “serious attitude towards acting, which was different from her bright image on screen.” Han said So was “warm and relaxed,”filling in parts she lacked and allowing her to work comfortably.
So also talked about how his character is called “middle-aged” by Han in the film. He said “she kept calling me middle-aged before filming began, throughout the film and even now. It’s become like a nickname for me and it doesn’t make me feel bad.” He jokingly added that he’s being called “middle-aged” more often in real life.
The two attended the Japan Premier event held at Tokyo’s Marunouchi Picadilly later that night, where So and Han told the fans who gathered to do their best to the ones they love while they still had time.
Only You is a love story between Chul Min (played by So Ji-sub), a former boxer with a dark past and Jung Hwa (played by Han Hyo-joo), a woman who slowly losing her sight due to an accident. It was the opening film for the 2011 Busan Film Festival. [Yonhap]
