Many thanks, dear Uchi, for your being so generous with your time.Originally Posted by uchikake
Wish I have the determination to learn Korean as well.
Maybe we should all take the lead from Uchi and spend a few hours a week learning simple korean phrases.
Uchi, can you start a weekly session for us?
Just simple phrases, maybe common ones used in k-dramas!
Welcome Island Girl! We're getting more and more people on the thread. Hooray. How did you stumble onto the thread? Is it thru a search engine?Originally Posted by Islandgirl04
If you intend to send something to Oppa, do let him know that this thread exists and that there are many people outside of Korea and Japan who love and adore him! Come back soon, dearest Oppa!
Oppa in Mongolia, yeaahhhh!!!! Too bad I missed him...Otherwise I would be one of those screaming girls trying to get his autograph...Oppa's the second best in Mongolia...The first obviously BYJ...SJS's not bad either.. I"m sorry I love you? i haven't watched it yet but lots of mongolians love it anyways
These kinda look like Mongolian traditional clothes but mixed with Western style....
Oppa meeting the president, he's no longer the president but i hate that dood...watch him stare at Oppa's gorgeousness cause he's so freaking ugly!
so the fashion show....
Thanks maskofchina for welcoming me to this forum. To answer your question, I've been looking throughout the internet for websites on SSH for a short while now and this forum seemed to have the most information about him. I am still trying to get caught up on reading the previous threads and I've learned quite a lot about him already. But, I want to learn more about him. So, please excuse me if I ask a lot of silly questions. Other forums I've seen are either in another language that I don't know or are just not very informative. I love reading these threads because so many of you know so much about him, are able to translate, and post tons of pics of him!
Ask away, Islandgirl, there are no silly questions here, because all of us are curious and like to know more about Oppa SSH. Some of us have been Oppa's fan for many years, and others are new fans. I'm not sure if you are able to get all his drama series and movies where you are staying, but it is worth watching them if you want to experience all of Oppa's work.Originally Posted by Islandgirl04
He's matured a lot since he entered showbiz and you get to see him play different roles in the different movies/drama. Other than playing the role of a tragic lover (Autumn, Summer, Calla), he's also a great comedian (3Men 3 Women, Cool Guy, Popcorn). He is convincing in action movies too (Ice Rain, Cheat, Make it Big). Oppa is also a great singer and successful model! Wow... the list goes on. All in all, our Oppa is one ultra talented, super sexy, gloriously gorgeous male specimen! Plastic surgery or not, he's one lucky man because he seems to have it all! No wonder he's got ajummas running/clinging to him!
We try to have a lot of fun on this thread. If you ever feel like being wacky, just start something and we'll try to join in to have some good fun!

Well, maskofchina, I do have some questions so I'll just ask. I read somewhere that he made a movie called "Virtual Twilight" but I can't find any info. about it. Is this the same movie as "So Close"? And, what character did he play in "So Close"? What language did he speak since the movie itself is not Korean made? Did he play a big role in it? Also, what is his movie "Cheat" about? I can't find any information on that one either. And, can anyone tell me how I can get a copy of "Summer Scent" in which the english subtitles are legible and makes sense? I have a copy of it but the english subtitles are terrible. For me, it just kept me from really enjoying the series; it's integral for me to understand what's being said. The copy I have has a white box/background with the main characters leaning against each other with tea-field backdrop. The title, now that I realize it, is more chinese than korean, and the quality is pretty poor. A friend of mine has an original copy that she got which was sent directly from Korea. However, the person she bought it from is no longer selling copies
Of the movies/series SSH made, I've seened Autumn in My Heart, Summer Scent, Calla, and The Guy was Cool! I loved him in every one of them! I'm hoping to see more of his work and hopefully hear some of his songs someday! How many albums has me made? Well, thank you in advance for helping me to know Oppa even more!
yes, virtual twilight and so close are the same movie. he plays yen, not a major character but he plays love interest of the older sister, lynn...everyone speaks cantonese in it even oppa but his voice is dubbed...i haen't seen cheat either dunnoy what's about sorry...Originally Posted by Islandgirl04
and his songs
Even After 10 Years
I Love You
Hi Islanggirl, try my best to answer the questions you asked....Originally Posted by Islandgirl04
The movie was released both as So Close and Virtual Twilight. It starred 3 Asian beauties and Oppa as the love interest of one of the characters, played Shu Qi. If you just want to watch the movie for Oppa, then you'll likely be disappointed. The DVD version offers English as a spoken option, english subtitles also available. Oppa appears less than 15 minutes in the entire movie. However, you can get quite a lot of footage of him in Hong Kong promoting the movie on youtube. Oppa looked very handsome and looked so happy in all the clips.
If you want to see more of him, try his other movies like Ice Rain, Message (one story in a series), Make It Big, he played much bigger starring roles in those.
Cheat, also released at Police and Blood in some regions. In this kdrama, Oppa played a uprighteous policeman who was wrongfully accused of misconduct, he later became a conman (but a good one). Oppa must have been superfit when he played this role, there was lots of stunts and he exhibited his strengths doing off-the-floor push-ups and sit-ups etc.
Summer Scent, I've only ever seen Korean/Chinese/Japan versions. Never ever seen a English dubbed version anywhere.
Have you checked out YesAsia, it offers many different releases and the price vary widely. Generally, the price on this site is not cheap. Also, the shipping also takes a long time. Drove me berserk just waiting for the stuff to arrive!
You must try to watch The Cool Guy, it's a very entertaining movie and Oppa was excellent in the role. Most people who have seen it liked it and it was big in Japan.
Oppa is in the army now so he hasn't released any new work. Video stores also seem to carry only recent popular titles. May take you some effort to hunt for Oppa's older work. I've tried looking for 3 Men 3 Women and only succeeded in getting one season.
Good Luck, let us know how it goes.
Again, thank you so much to those who were willing to take the time to answer my questions. It's great to know more about him and his past works. I wish I could see all of them, but it's so hard to get them in the U.S. Can someone tell me more about "The Message" in which he worked with Choi Ji-Woo? Has anyone seen it? What is it like? And, I keep hearing about "A Day"; I've seen a nine minute version of it on YouTube, but is it a full-lengh movie?
I am currently awaiting for the arrival of "Calla" in the mail. I'm really excited to see it!
The Message, I haven't seen it but you can read the review hereOriginally Posted by Islandgirl04
a day is just 9 hour video clip there's nothing more or less
and enjoy calla when you get it!
Kim Bum Soo's "A Day" is a MTV that starred Oppa and Song Hye Gyo. It was filmed in Canada. Oppa looked very handsome in it, he spotted the same hairdo as he did in Autumn. The story is tragic.Originally Posted by Islandgirl04
I think it was released only in selected countries.The version I have comes with a second disc which contains interviews and scenes from the making-of.
In Message, Oppa starred as a shoe salesman who is also a playboy. He took over a friend's pager and started getting messages from a girl played by Choi who mistook him to be the original owner of the pager. Anyway, to cut the long story short, he fell in love! In my opinion, not one of his best movies, but you should watch it if you can. He was dressed in a lot of flowery shirts!
Enjoy Calla, it's got a great OST. And not forgetting a very young looking Oppa. Gorgeous even back then......

‘가을동화’ 영화로 만들어진다…송승헌 등 주연배우 물망

송승헌 주연 '가을동화', 영화화된다

The joint film makers of the movie said that they hoped to have SSH and the original cast to film this movie.
The movie is scheduled to be filmed in August next year and screened at end of next year.
No comments were made by SSH and representative.
Poibos bought the copyright of the movie and is the parent company of GM (SSH's management company). With GM's boss Mr Kim being the biggest shareholder of Poibos, external sources believe that there is a high possibility that SSH will cast in the movie.
