JH withdraws from MBC drama "The Moon embraces the Sun"

What ??
Such a promising drama, with script writer from "Sungkyungkwan scandal",
with excellent young actors as Jung Il Woo and Kim So hyun,
and you tell me Jeong Hoon withdraws from it ?!


I'd heard about this drama for a while, it looked interesting,
so it excited me to hear that Jeong Hoon would appear in it (playing a handsome and intellectual scholar).
But then, official source said that he would not be able to make it,
because Jeong Hoon was busy with Japanese album recording.

Still dreaming about watching Jeong Hoon on a MBC long drama.

2011.11.25 “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” Media Site Visit

[][Eng trans] “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” Media Site Visit – Visit to Za Qingdao Counter Filming Site

On 15th Nov 2011, the “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” drama team was at Qingdao’s 悦喜客来mall, at the Za counter for filming. As Za is the largest cosmetic sponsor for the drama, it was natural for its counter to make an appearance. The scene involves Zhao Meiling (Pei Bei’s role) becoming the representative for the Za brand, so her manager Bian Tinghua (Yao Di’s role) requests Wen Qingyao (Kim Jeong Hoon's role) to accompany her to the counter to buy some beauty products as a show of support for Meiling. At the crowded counter, the Za beauty consultant notices Qingyao looking ill at ease and cleverly recommends a set of whitening products to Tinghua and tells her that by spending the required amount, she can claim a set of men’s products for Qingyao to use. Mischievously, Tinghua hurries Qingyao to pay up, then takes off herself with the packages. Although Qingyao looks indifferent the whole time, he still acts like a gentleman and finally settles the bill.

The entire scene was shot within Za’s flagship store, which was brightly and fashionably decorated in a cute, pink theme. Even the staff behind the scenes privately enquired about the new products…(not translating the description of the products)

During a filming intermission, lead actor Kim Jeong Hoon took a strong interest in an illuminated poster in the counter, asking the staff nearby whether the model was Pei Bei; only then did everyone realise that he had been pondering it in his mind for some time before asking the question. Jeong Hoon was amazed when told that Pei Bei is actually also the officially contracted representative for Za, and brought smiles when he praised Pei Bei’s suitability for the role. Colleagues on the drama team also expressed their surprise at having this chance to work with her. The whole team passes every day with much laughter and amusing moments.

I Need Romance gets a Season 2...

...but Jeong Hoon and the 3 ladies aren't going to star in it.
Roles and actors (actresses) are all new in season 2, only the idea & spirit remain the same.

Which, is good.
As long as I love season 1 and Jeong Hoon's acting in it,
I don't want him to be involved in another season.
Plenty of freshly new projects around for him to pick up.

Interview JH about "Tiptoe to kiss love" filming

On a Chinese magazine:

From page 2:

“Early on in 2006 when ‘Goong’ was hugely popular, Kim Jeong Hoon guest-starred in ‘Angel’ for which he was the choice candidate for the lead role. Due to his schedule he was unable to take up the lead role but took on a specially-created, smaller role, and still left a deep impression on viewers. Thereafter he also starred in ‘Love Strategy’, but the drama, which was directed by a Korean director and used a script from Korea, seemed out of sync in some ways and wasted the talent of the fine actors and production crew. Following several years of preparation, Kim Jeong Hoon started his third foray into China, returning from military service visibly more mature and manly than before, which in itself is a good thing. However, Wen Qingyao was once a shining hot star of the catwalk, and in this industry where youth is prized and only youth is invincible, it will be interesting to see how Kim Jeong Hoon plays this supermodel in the drama.”

From page 5:

Yao Di's comment about JH:
"This is my first time working together with Kim Jeong Hoon. He speaks (his lines in) Korean, so we both have to study each other's lines well. He is a very intelligent actor, so even though we don't understand each other's lines during filming, communicating through facial expressions and eye contact is also very effective."

From page 6:

Kim Jeong Hoon - Rebirth of the Fallen Prince:

Adapting very well
Filming in China is different from in Korea, the methods and process of filming and so on are not the same. But having worked on ‘Love Strategy’ and then now working on ‘Tiptoe to Kiss Love’, although in between I have indeed met some difficulties, but with each day of intense but orderly filming, I have gradually adapted to the Chinese drama team’s lifestyle and conditions. Currently, I am earnestly shooting the drama while at the same time diligently studying Chinese. But Chinese is harder to learn than expected, the majority of the time during filming I still require an interpreter. On location I’m able to have simple conversations with the cast and crew. I’m getting along well with them and very happy in my work.

The prince and I
Before coming to China I already knew there is a group of dedicated fans that like me, I am very glad and very grateful for their support and love for me. I have heard that Prince Yul in ‘Goong’ left a deep impression on viewers in China (laugh). As an actor, I am very pleased to have characterised a role that viewers have come to know and remember, I am grateful to everyone.

“Melancholic prince” is the general assessment of me. I feel that a good actor is able to portray and characterise different roles, and I myself hope that through various works I may be able to act out different characters.

Wen Qingyao is a character who is cold on the surface but warm inside, appearing indifferent to everything because he has been through a lot. Previously a famous star but became degenerate because of love, this is a unique character who can move people with his expressions. I’m strongly attracted to the conflicts and many layers within his personality, he seems full of individuality. Please give your attention to this drama, perhaps you will see a different Kim Jeong Hoon. I hope that this character will be well received by everyone.

Delicate emotions
Korean and Chinese TV dramas have delicate and sensitive emotions, and there isn’t much difference in how these are expressed, so I’ve not met with much difficulty in acting; I merely have to do my best. The character in the drama seems rather reticent, somewhat similar to how I am now, and the director is also pleased about this aspect, saying that my acting meets his requirements. Modelling is Qingyao’s profession, but he has his own life like any regular person. Young people must expect to face some difficulties in their career and love life. This drama tells the story of a model who meets obstacles in his love life, how he opens up his heart anew to embrace love. Modelling is this character’s glitzy external identity, while he also experiences joys and heartaches just like normal people. His emotional experiences are perhaps like everyone else’s, I hope that all of you when watching this drama will appreciate the charm of his personality.

Super model's parents

Drama "Tiptoe to kiss love" still:


This is about JH's mother in the drama, she is the head of a modeling agency, a tough and severe lady. She cares for her son deeply but shows him no warmth at all, keeping her love hidden in the heart, in fact mother and son seem to treat each other more like enemies.

Also, a fashion designer named Alex played by 張晨光 and KJH's character work together on an important fashion show. What's interesting is that this Alex is said to be KJH's birth father, estranged from his mother 20 years ago because of a misunderstanding, and then he proposes to her before the show!

[2011.10.24][Sohu] "Tiptoe to Kiss Love" filming, Kim Jeong Hoon and Ai Ru romantic seaside scene

Starring Korean idol Kim Jeong Hoon (金桢勋), popular actress Yaodi (姚笛) as leads, the urban fashion TV drama serial "Tiptoe to Kiss Love" (《踮起脚尖吻到爱》) is in the process of filming in Qingdao. Produced by Huayi Brothers Tianyi Film and TV, filming the day before took place at the seaside, with Kim Jeong Hoon and Airu (艾茹) acting out a complicated emotional entanglement.

In the drama, the lead male character Wen Qingyao (played by Kim Jeong Hoon) and his girlfriend Su Rexi have been together for many years, but Rexi was pressured by her family into marrying someone else. A spurned Qingyao later meets Yaodi's character Bian Tinghua, yet is unable to make a clean break with Rexi. The possible paths that their relationship will take and what choice Qingyao will make, is a focal point of the drama. Winner of the 7th Miss Tourism International and second lead actress in "Naked Wedding", Airu once again becomes rivals with Yaodi in this drama by playing Su Rexin. The day's filming took place at Qingdao's Olympic Sailing Center, where the two actors were filmed in a beautiful seaside scene, with the sea and lighthouse in the background adding to the romantic effect. The scenes included not only the two characters in their youth confirming their love at the seaside, but also after their breakup both unable to resolve their feelings for each other. Their hug scene attracted much attention from passers by, including the two actors' fans passionately calling out their names. The actors were however fully immersed in their roles and grasped the emotions appropriately.

Airu explained to reporters how this second female lead character is different from the typical Korean drama's arrogant second lead, "This character is very meek, very pitiful, she was made to leave Qingyao and marry by force. After the wedding she realised she was unable to resolve her feelings for Qingyao and continued to cling to him. Unlike 'emotional dramas' where the second female lead is manipulative, Su Rexin is very naive and her only means of getting her boyfriend back is to cling desperately. Therefore since the start of filming, my scenes have all been crying scenes."

KJH lacks confidence to play a model

About the drama "Tiptoe to kiss love" (what else? :D )

[2011.10.20][Sina Entertainment] “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” filming in Qingdao, Kim Jeong Hoon and Yaodi Join Up

“Tiptoe to Kiss Love”, a fashion drama production of Huayi Brothers Tianyi Film & TV Co. (华谊兄弟天意影视有限公) is filming in Qingdao and Sina Entertainment paid an exclusive visit to the set to watch the filming of a scene involving YaoDi, Kim Jeong Hoon and Peibei.

KJH and Yaodi build tacit understanding; non-stop laughter on the set

In the drama, Korean actor KJH and popular idol Yaodi play a couple that starts off bickering but finally fall in love. Their scenes together are worth attention. The scene filmed on the 19th was of KJH creating an uproar at a fashion show wanting see his former girlfriend, while Yaodi, fearing him getting hurt, tried to stop the fight. One speaking Chinese and the other Korean, although not understanding each other’s language the scene actually went off smoothly. When asked to describe how they coordinated so well, Yaodi praised KJH’s “precise acting”. “He has many little communication cues, warm-hearted ones, such as interesting hand gestures; it is very amusing.”
On hearing her praise, KJH loudly said in Chinese, “Thank you,” which brought laughter. Yaodi said she was previously concerned that communication with KJH would be a problem since she knows no Korean at all, but she worried for nothing. She also said that KJH loves to fool around. KJH mentioned that some earlier scenes required him to have a bad attitude to her character, and asked Yaodi not to take it to heart. She laughed and said, “Not at all.” Although the communication cues between the two were not demonstrated at the interview, it was clear that they interact with each other easily.

KJH praises great changes in China; more mature after military service

KJH starred in Tianyi’s romance drama “Love Strategy” four years ago. Now returning to China, the handsome idol feels that the environment is more familiar to him and he enjoys interacting with the actors from China. When asked if he had any “losses or regrets”, since he enlisted into the army at the height of his popularity, he frankly admitted “losses are inevitable”, but military service enabled him to grow as a person. KJH is now more mature, his acting carries more richness and depth, so his acting in “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” will surely be very different than in the earlier “Love Strategy”.


[2011.10.21][Wangyi Entertainment]
Yaodi “Tiptoe” to play an agent; Kim Jeong Hoon lacks confidence to play a model
[excerpt of article]
Yaodi, KJH, Peibei and other actors of fashion idol drama “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” are now filming in Qingdao. In Yaodi’s first idol drama, she acts as Korean star Kim Jeong Hoon’s managing agent and a romance between a prince and Cinderella arises. In an interview, KJH who is below 1.8 metres tall, has his own theory about the change in drama title from “Model” to “Tiptoe to Kiss Love”, suspecting that the name change was because the creators they felt he was not suitable enough to play a model.

Kim Jeong Hoon lacks confidence to play a model; apologises to Yaodi “don’t take my temper to heart”

TV drama “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” was originally named “Model”. Taiwan supermodel Peibei was invited to play a model like herself while KJH also acts as a supermodel. Discussing the drama’s name, Yaodi feels that it is very suitable, “The title refers to happiness sometimes being just a little short, just a tiptoe distance away, so it’s easy to give up, but if one would try tiptoeing to reach out, happiness is just by your side.”

Tall Peibei referred to her scenes with actor Renwei, “The title for me, in love not only the female has to tiptoe, my romantic interest Renwei also has to tiptoe in order to kiss me. My kiss scene was for real, I wasn’t used to it. Romance with a shorter guy is a special experience.”
As for below-1.8 metres-tall KJH, he is a little dejected when talking about the drama title. “Perhaps it is because of me, in real life I wouldn’t be able to be a model, hence the name change from “Model” to “Tiptoe to Kiss Love”. Actually I prefer the original name “Model”, and I still treasure this opportunity to act as a model in this drama.”

In the drama, KJH is a famous idol while Yaodi is an agent from a humble background who has to endure KJH’s scolding and criticism. Reporters spied Yaodi on the set trying to stop KJH from entering the launch venue while he pushes roughly. During the interview, he suddenly told Yaodi, “Those angry words I said in the drama, please don’t take them to heart.” Yaodi looked taken aback before answering, “Not at all.” She also praised KJH’s skilful acting.

Article about "Tiptoe to kiss love" filming

[2011.10.20][Sohu] Handsome Korean guy on scene, extras are confused

On October 18th, reporters arrived at Four Points Sheraton Hotel in the Chengyang district (Qingdao), where the fashion idol drama “Tiptoe to Kiss Love” (《踮起脚尖吻到爱》) by Zhejiang’s Huayi Brothers Tianyi Film & TV Co. It was right in the midst of filming. The reporters interviewed the male and female leads, namely handsome Korean Kim Jeong Hoon, Yaodi (姚笛) of “Dream of Red Chamber” and “Naked Wedding” fame, and famous model Peibei (裴蓓).

That day’s filming involved the launch of KJH’s screen mother Mazong’s (马总) modelling agency, which KJH gatecrashed and even quarrelled with his mother. Surely a climactic moment of conflict in the drama. As Korean and Chinese words were hurled like a hurricane in the quarrel scene, many comic moments induced laughter. Even in the actual takes, the director had to repeatedly remind the extras on set to stop laughing, but two hotel employees acting as security were unable to control their expressions. As a result, many retakes were required.

Although comic results are expected from interacting with a foreign actor, the reporters have a different experience on the set: KJH with a serious expression speaks in Korean with a harsh tone, Weizhi (魏智) and Yaodi frown whilst trying to stop the fight, while the extras look confused as they do not understand the situation – it is really an interesting scenario.

“KJH’s Chinese is actually pretty good, he didn’t need translation for many things I said.” Many of the Chinese actors expressed that they initially felt pressure because they were concerned that communication within the team would be a big problem, but unexpectedly KJH’s level of Chinese surprised everyone.

Through an interpreter, KJH told the reporters that he has already been in Qingdao for 2 months and his Chinese has improved much after being with the drama team for that long. “I’ve even privately devised many little actions, warm-hearted ones, to communicate with, for example, some interesting hand gestures. It should be very amusing.” KJH and Yaodi also said that viewers of the drama can carefully look out for such private surprises specially for them.

(The rest of the article is an interview with Peibei, mainly talking about her first screen kiss in the drama.)
