I feel that ever since our boys have gone solo, their thinking really have really matured alot. Like how Saengie feels when he took up his 1st musical role, his thoughts & insecurities. But he received a lot of praises & I am the witness cos I went to Seoul to watch it!
And Kyu, he also felt insecurities when he also took up his 1st musical role and the same feeling when he took up his 1st drama. But I can see that he really work very hard cos when I watch "Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil" I can see his body language, his eyes, his expressions. His eyes can really speak volumes! So proud of him.
Luna, I was stunned to know that she is only 18!! Her thinking is really very mature for her age... her voice is also awesome! I hope to hear her sing ballads... ^^

"Have a blessful New Year, with lots of love"
"If love line can be created by raising by just looking at the mouth can produce a smile, that would be great. Hehehehe... (Luna, F(x) member)
"Wanting to show a refreshing feel of 1st love. Luna as Seo In Young who may look immature, but is a very charimatic character." (Kim Kyu Jong, SS501 member)
SS501 member Kim Kyu Jong (25) with a long body frame, sculpture-like appearance capturing all the female fans hearts and recognised as strong powerful vocal with talent in dance idol group F(x) member Luna (19), looking at each other and smile modestly. In TV Chosun weekend drama 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil' Luna is acting as the role of Kim Hae Sook’s maknae daughter ‘Seo In Young’ (21), a college student majoring in Western Painting, while Kim Kyu Jong will play the role of ‘Nicky’ (24), a man who dreams of becoming a musical actor who came to Seoul to realise his dreams. On 12 Jan 10pm, they were filming at Seoul Itaewon. Luna who just return back from Japan, Kim Kyu Jong hastily rushed down to Itaewon after finished recording for a variety show in Gangwon. "Today we are going to shoot the scene where Nicky and In Young start to fall in love, working in the same store where both will have their 1st skinship, confirming the feelings of each other." the two face turned red at the same time after saying it.
From singer to actor, from musical to drama... working down the same path
"I was very surprised when I saw Luna's Musical. Only 18 year old having such fluid acting, was rather shocked." (Kyu Jong)
The two of them have the same resumes. Debuted as idols, was introduced into acting thru musicals, 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil' is their 1st drama debut. Last year Luna won praises for her performance in the musical 'Legally Blonde' and 'Coyote Ugly', while Kyu Jong during the same year in the musical 'GOONG' as the Crown Prince, Prince Shin was greatly loved by in Japan and South Korea.
Kyu Jong said: "During last summer, I went to watch the musical 'Coyote Ugly' acted by Luna, which I realise the meaning of performance." With this compliment Luna immediately waved her hands. "I am flattered by your comments. I am not a dramatic person. In actual fact, what if Kyu Jong oppa came to watch during the performance day where I am not feeling well until I cant perform properly, then what should I do, I was trembling alot! But luckily everything turn out alright." (smile)
"Knowing there will be songs but it also involved acting. After watching the performance I went home and search for Luna's act thru the internet and found that she is only 18 years old. What was I doing at that age, was thinking 'Ah... peforming can really give people a warm feeling and inspiration' right."(Kyu Jong)
Filming 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil" at the same time make the two 'grow a lot'. Luna said, "Cant forget the scene where the day In Young found her mother who secretly went to Seoul crying." "I should be crying, but due the cold, tears couldnt drop out. But, Bong Shil omma Kim Hae Sook SeonSaeNim performance is totally not the same. SeonSaeNim eyes were very sad, when she saw me, she cried and tears just flow down continously. With that I decided 'Cold is not the reason. No matter what the situation is, I must focus on efforts to enhance the feelings'."
Thru 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil' have insights into the profound world of performing
"The 'heart, mind' performing is the most difficult. When you should hate but you only hate on the surface, you cant protray the real acting out." (Luna)
The two who were intro into acting "Performing is very interesting, but very tough". Kyu Jong said, "Usually you dont need to think and do those things you need to do and will be very happy." "Not wanting to do have to do, do not like to eat but have to eat. With this you observe people's actions. Record down similiar feelings while following suit with acting." Luna said, "During the feel of burden when in need of finding a standard way of acting, there is no time to feel the fun." "Wanting to smoothly understand acting thus I even chose drama as my major in my university. Although acting will change with the roles given, nevertheless there are bound to have a positive answer isnt it? I want to find the real answer."
The question is not act what you are thinking. "Like wanting to be an actor. But it is not natural. Heard from the sunbaes that showing the 'possible' emotions needs accumulation. The so-called 'no matter what feelings must have a based on', that is not to resort to performing." Kyu Jong even wrote a diary regarding this question, "I wrote in the position of my character. Confirmed what has happened the day before, how tangled things were, whether still angry." Luna worry is 'Cannot believe in yourself'. "There is no such 'I am great' for sure. Performers themselves 'understanding of what is now their own feelings and create the kind of expression is very important'." Kyu Jong said, "Luna is a perfectionist", with that Luna replied, "No I am not", she laughs.
Hallyu Idol even practice and practise during New Year
To popular idols New Year is not holidays to them. Trainees will still train in company, after debuting they gotta digest a very tight schedule thus couldnt be with their family. Luna said, "When I was small when welcoming the New year spring bath, very interesting." "When going back to my grandfather's hometown to celebrate New Year with my relatives, on the way to Seoul we will go to the spring bath spa. I have a twin sister, we will pester our parents whenever we wanna go to the spring bath.
Kyu Jong said, "Whenever there is a gathering of all my relatives, it will be a total of more than 60 people", "Will go back to my hometown in JeonJu to celebrate New Year with my family". "New Year still have to wait in line to greet. But do not need to give red packets." (laugh). "But ever since being a trainee, there isnt a chance for me to go back to visit for 8 years. Not long ago I just met my cousins and I totally couldnt recognise them."
Kyu Jong said gloomily, "This year I am spending New Year alone." "Previously I always spent it with the members, but this year solo activities have no choice but to spend it alone." But not to worry about food. Kyu Jong said, "I can make a good Mandoo(Dumpling) soup ", giving a thumbs up sign. "Buy mandoo,boiled together with rice cakes, anchovy, kelp and eggs and it is ready." Luna, "Wow, you are very good with cooking. Certainly be the same as chef." praised Kyu Jong who shrugged his shoulders.
The two said, "We cant spend the New Year with the readers thus we will give our New Year greetings", "Isnt this year the year of the black dragon, we wish everyone spend the year soaring high like the dragon. Have a blissful new year. Hope everyone will support 'Saving Ahjumma Go Bong Shil'!"
