English translation of Jiwon talking about her acrophobia (same fear of heights as Seunggi and overcoming it just like him~), working with Seunggi on The King 2 Hearts, and his video message for her first Singapore fan meet… #TK2H #Hearties
Jan. 10, 2015 – Ha Ji Won Fan Meet in Singapore
English: LSGfan, Video: mylastwishes95
Starting at 7:05~
HJW: Actually, it’s a secret but I have acrophobia (I didn’t know this! Just like Seunggi!). But I really like action so much and wanted to film that [wire scene]. So to overcome this, I practiced many many times so the fear will go away. So now, I may be the best actor in Korea who can do wire scenes!
MC: But seriously, you have acrophobia?
HJW: Yes, really. Really! I can’t even ride scary rides at the amusement park. So before filming that action scene, I repeatedly practiced with the stunt team. I love action.
MC: That’s the spirit. She’s showing us that even if there’s something you’re afraid of, you need to overcome it and do well. Don’t you think she’s showing us a wonderful fighting spirit?
ALL: Ha Ji Won fighting!!!
HJW: In the future, I’ll continue to overcome my acrophobia and show you a lot of action scenes.
MC: You see, she is so gorgeous and graceful at the moment, but she fights and challenges like a man. And speaking of men, I have a question now, a very important question to all of us… You have worked with many actors like Hyunbin, Jo Insung, So Jisup, Lee Seunggi! Among them, who do you think was your best partner?
HJW: Too hard…
(omg MC fangirling on her at saying the names of the guy actors again that Jiwon has to go over and tell her it’s ok, to calm down, relax. lol)
HJW: Honestly for me, they all matched well with me. But particularly in the case of Secret Garden, because my character had to swap roles with Hyunbin, you can’t help but to get close, and since we got to know one another that way, I think the match was good. Also, do you all know the drama The King 2 Hearts?
HJW: I filmed that with Lee Seunggi. I tend to have bursting energy on set, but Lee Seunggi, similar to me has that bright energy. So whether we were filming all night long into the morning or filming a hard scene, we comforted one another and had fun filming. And, we also shared something in common… seeking out tasty restaurants! So we shared a lot of tasty restaurants with one another.
(ok that translator girl like said something totally different lol)
MC: I know Lee Seunggi is filming 2 Days 1 Night…? So he knows a lot of tasty places.
HJW: 1 Night 2 Days.
MC: So he knows all the good food places as well.
MC: So you’re saying that Lee Seunggi was your best partner among all the partners you worked with? Is it?! Well since you feel so good about Lee Seunggi, but does Seunggi-shi feel the same way about Jiwon-shi?
HJW: Oh really?
MC: We have prepared a surprise video for all of you!
12:30~ Cue to Seunggi’s video message~~~~~~~~~
(Aw as expected…. only as Seunggi can do. See translation below)
Seunggi and Jiwon are really so similar in personality. Did not know that she too has acrophobia! Maybe Seunggi channeled her fighting spirit when he filmed the Gryo Drop like 37 times for Love Forecast!
So glad their awesome The King 2 Hearts experience and memories live on even now. And among the fans. This is why no matter what kind of project you do, the quality of individual acting and chemistry is perhaps the most important. Because that’s a respect and relationships that’s undeniable, and cherished forever.
Jaeha and Hangah~~~ and Seunggi and Jiwon~~~
Miss you!!! #TK2H #Hearties
