Korea Movie – “Magic” Characters Introduction

Due to special request from Aram (LolliDoAlittle), Gongjunim is going to translate the part on the introduction of characters of movie “Magic”.

Director Goo Hye Sun:

Born in 1984 at Incheon, Goo Hye Sun who debuted through CF in 2002 has received public attention through MBC <Non Stop 5>. And she filmed several dramas <Ballad of Suh Dong>, <Pure 19>, <Strongest Chil Woo> etc and accumulated wisdom along constantly. In 2009, through the role “Geum Jandi” at “Boys over Flowers”, she shot to stardom at a since leap. After she rose to stardom, she published her illustration fiction <Tango> and held her illustrations exhibition. She releases music album <Goo Hye Sun Sketch Collection – Breathe> where the songs kept inside are self composed by herself and she feels well on the release undoubtedly. She challenges on movie directing and she made her first short film <The Madonna>. She received success recognition for her debut challenge as her short film was awarded with “Best Audience Award” at the Pusan Asian International Film Festival. Her first full-length movie “Magic” is on glitteringly shining youth’s sensitivity and it is scheduled to be shown on screen.

Jung Woo – Kim Jeong Wook 

“In this world, there are things which I can carry with, there are things which I cannot hold on with as well…”

Jung Woo is a genius music student who has a perfect music pitch and a haggard character. Though it seems like he carries on with everything and is magnificent to every matter, he cannot make his confession to the person who he loves when comes to it. During the little time period left, he burned out all of his passion.

Ji Eun – Seo Hyun Jin

“Be it a mistake, be it a joke, it cannot be with me”

Ji Eun who receives Jung Woo and Myeong Jin’s love. She composes “Magic” (“YooSul”), the last song of the musical recital. She doesn’t shows her heart to any of the two of them easily.

Myeong Jin – Im Ji Gyu 

“To me as well… Can’t you give me the main musical score?”

Genius music student Jung Woo’s close friend. Though he is always hiding in obscurity, he has a strong passion towards music than anyone. While he is jealous of Jung Woo, he wishes to be the same like him too. Jung Woo and him together love Ji Eun.

Korea Movie – Goo Hye Sun’s First Directed Full Length Movie “Magic” Poster

The poster of Goo Hye Sun’s first debut directed full-length movie “Magic” is revealed through their official movie blog today~! ^^

It looks very artistic and emotions-filled. The poster wrote “Your musical score which the world wants to possess the most”.

Director Goo Hye Sun also inserted her words inside the  “Director’s side corner”. Inside she wrote:

There are 3 youths (men and woman) who have a different love form.
The 3 of them each have inferiority complex along with them.

The thing called youth, is exactly not what it wants to be.
While there is repetition of love and hatred, this is how it goes about making relationship.
Certain consequences will also be brought up through that relationship.
Youth make us love once again.

From a saying from a Germany poem Freiligrath, Hermann Ferdinand.
“If you can love, love just one”
