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”

Korea Buzz – Im Ji Gyu as The Male Lead for Goo Hye Sun’s First Directed Full-Length Movie

(Translated from 뉴스엔) Actor Im Ji Gyu has been selected as the male lead for Goo Hye Sun’s first directed full length movie “Magic”.

Im Ji Gyu has received attention for his movie works “Milky Way Liberation Front” and “Who’s That Knocking at My Door” at Jeonju International Film Festival and Pusan International Film Festival and he is also being awarded the rookie award at Buil Film Awards. He has been casted as the male lead for actress-turned-director Goo Hye Sun’s first full-length movie “Magic” and the filming has started.

Goo Hye Sun has received many public interest for her versatile talents from exhibition to publication and her first directed full-length movie “Magic” is about young musicians and their love and relationship. Im Ji Gyu undertook the role of “Myeong Jin” who is a unskilled cellist with negative introspective.

Through the help from his friend “Jeong Woo” (role played by Kim Jeong Wook), “Myeong Jin” becomes an aspiring cellist who received all attention. He eventually made completed “Ji Eun” (role played by Seo Hyun Jin)’s Magic which “Jeong Woo” could not complete.

Although Im Ji Gyu has been known as the star for independent films, he is still a unfamiliar actor to the general public. As Goo Hye Sun finds Im Ji Gyu’s appearance gave out a musician alike atmosphere, and she is impressed for his natural acting in the movie “”Milky Way Liberation Front”, as soon as she received the recommendation on him from her filming crew, she immediately designated him for the role.

Im Ji Gyu has been receiving private cello lessons since November last year for immersion in his role “Myeong Jin” as a cellist. As it is his first experience with cello instrument and also the first time he undertook the main lead in a commercial movie, he felt a lot of burden on it. However, he showed great satisfaction after watching the completed edited 10-minute version of the video.

And also, the filming has started from January 15 in Chang Young Elementary School which is located in Incheon. Although the filming started off in a distant atmosphere, the cue sound from the beautiful director gradually turned the atmosphere to a harmony one. And having stayed together for an entire week, they have also built up great teamworkship. The movie “Magic” has began its first set filming and it is expected to continue filming till mid February. The movie is set to release in the fall.
