Jang Dong Gun shares his thoughts on acting in a Chinese movie and joining SM Entertainment

Jang Dong Gun shares his thoughts on acting in a Chinese movie and joining SM Entertainment

In a recent interview, actor Jang Dong Gun spent time to talk about his acting in a Chinese movie and joining SM Entertainment.

Through the new movie titled ‘Dangerous Liaisons‘, Jang Dong Gun entered into the Chinese market for the first time. He participated in the movie together with Cecilia Cheung and Zhang Ziyi.

Dangerous Liasons was invited to the 65th Cannes, the 37th Toronto International Film Festival and the 17th Busan International Film Festival as well.

When the interviewer asked Jang Dong Gun about his acting in Chinese, the actor shared, “In the versions that were released in China, a voice actor dubbed over my voice. Our voices were pretty similar. The Korean version uses my own voice. When I couldn’t do a simultaneous recording, I did the dubbing myself. China is used to dubbing, and it’s very good. When a Pekingese movie is released into a Cantonese area, they dub it over.

He also revealed his thoughts on his first ever bed scene, saying, “This is the first time I’m having a scene that was more than just a kiss. We didn’t think of the rating, and we just filmed the scene matching the emotions. Actually, we matched the ratings because we knew that the Chinese audience would see it first. It’s not that I purposely avoided bed scenes, it’s just that I never was in a movie like that. I usually acted in manly movies, and there were almost no movies where I had a female counterpart. It still is a bit awkward. My wife hasn’t seen the full movie yet, but she did know about the scene. She asked me if I really had to do it and I comforted her, saying, ‘The director is Heo Jin Ho‘. She didn’t say anything after that and she didn’t mind the other cast members. However, I sometimes worry about the children. When I film love scenes, I thought to myself, ‘My kids are gonna see this’.

During the interview, Jang Dong Gun also talked about recently joining SM Entertainment. He expressed ”I knew Lee Soo Man sunbae since when I was young. When I talked about labels with him, I realized we agreed on a lot of things. Should I say that we clicked? I felt his vision. I was confident that I could put my trust with Lee Soo Man and I also thought about the Chinese and other foreign markets. The fact that I’m called SM’s maknae is 100% a joke, I’ve known BoA since she was in 6th grade. I also know SHINee’s Minho along with Super Junior’s Siwon, and I’m close with them. I just think that it’s cute. Haha.

Jang Dong Gun compares working with Cecilia Cheung and Zhang Ziyi at Toronto International Film Festival

Male actor Jang Dong Gun attended the press conference for his movie “Dangerous Liaisons” along with costar Zhang Ziyi and director Hur Jinho at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 10th.

I’ve worked with Cecilia Cheung before on ‘The Promise.’ She’s like my younger sister. This is the first time I’ve worked with Zhang Ziyi. She’s more mature than I am, so she felt like my sunbae,” Comparing the differences in working with Cecilia Cheung and Zhang Ziyi at the press conference, Jang Dong Gun stated.

The actor revealed that he was also asked why he was taking on characters that are a different style than the characters he played before he got married.

The characters I took up before I got married were mostly dark characters. I wanted to try lighter, brighter characters. I felt like it would be a fresh change if I started acting other types of characters after I got married,” explained by him.

The movie Dangerous Liaisons is about a love triangle between the playboy Xie Yifan (played by Jang Dong Gun), the graceful and calm widow Du Fenyu (played by Zhang Ziyi), and the sensual femme fatale, Madame Mojiewee (played by Cecelia Cheung). The movie was screened last May at the 65th Cannes Film Festival, and the cast were invited to the 37th Toronto International Film Festival.

Additionally, it seems Jang Dong Gun received a lot of attention with his presence at TIFF.

Jang Dong-gun returns to television

Jang Dong-gun returns to television

Jang Dong-gun returns to television

Well I never thought Id see the day. A-lister Jang Dong-gun (Warrior’s Way, Good Morning President), who starred in all my crack dramas of yesteryear, is reportedly coming back to the small screen, for the first time in twelve years. Can it be true? I feel like Im in a time warp. I wonder if seeing him on tv will make me feel like a teenager again. Wait I hope thats not the side effect Im going to incur. Jang has signed on to take the lead in A Gentlemans Dignity, the new drama from Secret Garden writer Kim Eun-sook, scheduled for a spring broadcast. Youd pretty much guess that she titled the drama after Jang, who is a gentlemans dignity personified.

The drama is a 20-episode weekend miniseries described as a male version of Sex and the City, about the ins and outs of a group of 40-something bachelors. Sexy ajusshi bromance? Yes please. Starring alongside Jang will be Kim Min-jong (Athena), another member of the 90s drama leading man club, and funnyman Kim Suro (Mr. Idol, Romantic Heaven). With Jang Dong-gun and Kim Min-jong in one drama, youre pretty much halfway to completing my dream drama cast (basically if you added Lee Jung-jae and Sohn Ji-chang my inner teenager would spontaneously combust).

What the drama doesnt have yet is a leading lady, since top contender Lee Na-young dropped out of the running. Im actually glad since I found the potential pairing a little off. I cant wait to see who they cast for the lead and opposite Kim Min-jong as well. I dont think Ive ever been excited about a cast of ajusshis before, but hey, when you age like Jang Dong-gun, you dont really get called ajusshi, at least not without hot in front of it.

A Gentlemans Dignity will air on weekends and premieres in May on SBS.
