These are photos and videos of the Press Conference for Beautiful Woman / Beauty Dream. Cr. Hunan TV and on media.
But before them, his is something I found in Soompi… posted by didixiaoyu. It is the translation of some notes written by one of the producers of this drama series. It is really touching:
(weibo: 诗人潘婷) is one of the producers for ‘Beautiful Woman’ 《女人花似梦》.
Translation of her notes on Jung Il Woo:
[Beautiful Woman – notes] As a producer, it is a great honor to work with an actor who dedicates to his work. Jung Il Woo’s dedication to this drama exceeded my expectation. I am deeply touched. Ilwoo had joined the cast 5 days before filming started. The first time I talked to him, I felt he was shy and a little anxious, just like a silent royalty, charming but distant. However later, when we were at a bar, I am surprised to find he was cute, like a little boy. When we started filming, he attracted everyone’s attention through his excellent acting skill. I am impressed by multi-faceted Ilwoo oppa. Such a cool guy! His assistant secretly told me Ilwoo is working with 110% energy! Every night he stayed up late and worked on the script with his team. he never complained no matter how early filming started and how little sleep he got the previous night. I asked him, ‘Aren’t you tired?’ He answered, ‘All Korean actors work as hard as this’. Today is the 4th day since filming started. I am sad to see him getting thinner. I tried to persuade him to work less, but he playfully said: “I have to control my diet to be in good shape for the pool scene. And I have to stay up late to work on the script.” Today Ms. Hailu, the female lead, asked for leave to go back to Bai Lu Yuan (another drama she is filming at the same time). She talked about Ilwoo again with me before she left. I don’t know if she was deeply immersed in the previous scene or she was really touched by Ilwoo, tears were gathered in her eyes. She said, ‘Ilwoo, works too hard.’
This is the original message:
This brought tears to my eyes… to think of how hard he worked and it hasn’t aired after all his effort… and the effort of the rest of the actors and crew and all the production company’s expense… and…
