[Eng Trans] Seo Hyun Jin’s Grazia October 2017 issue Interview – Between calmness and passion (Part 2)

Grazia3

Q15. So between a hot burning love and a love that warms up steadily, what  kind of love temperature do you want to have? 

A15. Uhm, rather than caring about the temperature of love, I want to date someone who’s like a best friend. Someone who knows how to be loyal to the other person, is there…such kind of person?

Q16. Where could he be. That kind of person (laughs)?

A16. Are they all taken?

Q17. Someday he will show up. People say that there is a right time for everyone.

A17. Just like love that needs a right time. The writer told me “After you do this drama, you might want to love someone”. But until now, it’s good to be single though. I don’t want to break this rhythm.

Q18. Looks like it is a difficult time to fall in love blindly. Surely the kind of love you’re dreaming of is different when you are in your 30’s and when you are in your 20’s.

A18. True. I’m checking myself if I am ready to love someone. I’m afraid of getting hurt again, too.

Q19. The way you look at people / judge a character must be different now too.

A19. Definitely different. In my 20s I like people with individual personality. The kind of person who has his own philosophy and firmly say his piece. Now I’m attracted to a considerate and generous person. I like someone whom I can feel comfortable with when we are together.

Q20. When it comes to dating, how has your style change?

A20. I’m not sure. It‘s been so long since I was in a relationship, so I don’t know how I look like (while dating).

Q21. Seriously, I hope something happens after this drama ends. 

A21. My parents and everyone else are hoping that I will date (laughs)!

Grazia4

Q22. If we look at your filmography up until now, I think you are a clever actor who pick your works well. 

A22. Actually 《Temperature of Love》 is the only one I chose. I am not an actor who has a wide spectrum of choices. So I have always been working on, with the thought that the one in front of me right now is my destiny. Eventually the works that I’ve done became my experiences.

Q23. So why were you attracted to Temperature of Love

A23. I wanted to do a drama that deals with emotions. To fall in love with someone, and that love didn’t work out, then to reunite again – the kind of drama where emotions are involved in various kind of situations. The actor’s interpretation on how to do it would make the real difference for it. There is no right or wrong answer to that. I feel burdened too…. I’ve been wandering in this field (for a while) but this is the first time I’m doing something like this. There are many ambiguous words that made it possible to be done this way or that way, so I’m going to find out the best way to do it.

Q24. Do you have any particular work that you wish to do in the future? 

A24. Recently I’ve started doing PT.(Plyometric Training) I want to build muscles on my body since I wish to do an action project. I wish to do a good action project at least once.

Q25. What is the ultimate thing you wish to achieve working as an actor? 

A25. I don’t have such a wish.

Q26. Don’t you have any expectation in doing your work? 

A26. Yes. I just wish for the (filming) sites to be continuously enjoyable. At first, the adults who tried to make up stories that do not exist at all used to look cool, but now I really like the energy from the (filming) sites where the experts gathered together and work professionally. People who work well and have good personalities are so fun. It is so fun working with such people at the sites. So I won’t avoid such people and would want to do well, and it feels good to make interesting and touching works together with them.. And if such relationships could extend even after the work ends where we can still meet up again, there’s nothing more that I could wish for.

[Eng Trans] Seo Hyun Jin’s Grazia October 2017 issue Interview – Between calmness and passion (Part 1)

Grazia1

Meeting and parting, and when they eventually reunite, the woman’s face deepen. Actor Seo Hyun Jin’s moments of searching for the <<Temperature of Love>>

Q1. You’re much more beautiful in real life.

A1. As you can see, I’m wearing a full make-up. Of course I should be looking pretty (laughs).

Q2. You are too humble. Since today’s photo shoot almost encompass all of the beauty trend for the F/W season, what make-up/style do you like most?

A2.I like make-ups that make my face looks healthy/rosy, so I think it is the prettiest when the blusher applied can enhance/ bring out the glossy skin appearance.

Q3. Your skin looks great from up-close. As you are also a spokes-model for Estee Lauder, which part of your skin  are you most confident with if you’re to choose one?

A3. Honestly, I used to feel confident about my skin in the past, however as I am getting older, it’s not same as before.. even so, if I have to choose one, I think it’ll be the skin texture?

Q4. Please tell us the secret in maintaining beautiful skin.

A4. I have been putting on moisturizing cream every day since my early 20’s. There is always a lip-balm and moisturizing cream in my make-up pouch. And during the winter, I keep the heater away from me as far as I can.

 Q5. Nowadays the filming of Temperature of Loveis in full swing. When you’re shooting a drama, you’ll not get enough time to sleep so how do you keep your skin condition healthy? 

A5. As the filming progresses, my skin feels more tired. Usually I would go to the dermatology clinic for treatments during the early stages of filming when the schedule is not so tight. But this time, there wasn’t  sufficient time for me to do so. If I have an all-night filming, I would remove the make-up once in the middle and then put on the make-up again.

Q6. You have to act and manage (your skin), I guess it must be really exhausting. 

A6. I’m trying, and I think of it as a ‘minimum courtesy’ (laughs).

Q7. Normally, do you enjoy make-ups? 

A7. Of course!

Q8. For make up, which would you put more emphasis on, the eyes or the lips?

A8. In winter, I’ll put on red lipstick, and I’ll use mascara to enhance my lashes during summer.

Q9. ‘Seo Hyun Jin’s make-up’ always become a trend in every work of yours. We are curious what kind of beauty topic it will be for this time, any hints?

A9. I asked the director who is in charge of make-up and she said the highlight will be on the blusher.

Grazia2

Q10. There’s hot interest towards Temperature of Loveeven before it started airing.

A10. The script is so good.It delicately illustrates the emotions surrounding love as it changes.  It’ll be a work that reminds you of missed relationships as well timings in life.

Q11. This is your second encounter with your partner actor Yang Se Jong. Despite being a rookie, he is an actor who acts very well, so we’re looking forward to the chemistry between both of you. 

A11. It feels comfortable for the fact that we know each of our style’s well. Also, I felt relieved as he is a friend who is good in acting. I’m just worried since I’m much more senior than him, he’ll be too polite towards me. Even though he can comfortably call me ‘noona’ but he keeps on calling me ‘sunbae-nim’ until now.

Q12. The male and female leads have to paint a love story but he keeps going on like that? 

A12. That’s what I’m saying! He keeps on calling me sunbae-nim so I don’t know what to do. I wish he could comfortably call me ‘noona’ now… but I think he’ll call me sunbae-nim even up until the wrap-up party (laughs).

Q13. What is the difference between <<Temperature of Love>> Lee Hyun Soo and <<Another oh Hae Young>> Oh Hae Young?

A13. She is not a woman who is as courageous as Oh Hae Young. She is a much more realistic person. She is a woman who thinks of love rationally, that love is a choice one makes based on one’s own will and not something that one would (instinctively) fall for. She thought that it should be in moderation, she is scared of it too… and when love comes, she didn’t want to rush it, and ended up regretting it later.

Q14. Which of the two characters’ styles is  closer to you in real life? 

A14. I’m closer to Lee Hyun Soo’s style. The older I get, the more frightened I feel. Like Hyun Soo, I’m sparing myself / playing it safe.

[ENG Transcript] Temperature of Love Taiwan Media Interview-Seo Hyun Jin & Yang Se Jong

TOL Interview for Taiwan media IQIYI

Intro: This is the promo video for Taiwan iQiYi

Qn:  Please give a brief description of your characters

YSJ: Ok.  My character is a person called On Jung Sun.  Jung Sun is a person with a painful past and he wants to depend on his own effort and live his life properly. Then at this time he met a person called Hyun Soo. After he met HyunSoo, he became attracted to her and wants her. When he realise these unconscious actions of his, he has already fallen in love with HyunSoo.  So he became straightforward about it..something like that, so this is the role that I have taken on.

SHJ:  Yes, as for me, my character is Lee Hyun Soo as mentioned by Jung Sun. Hyun Soo’s attitude towards this guy who came towards her with love is she  uses fear as a reason, kept avoiding and even chose to turn her  back and run away so…. she missed the timing to date him and then tries to find back the right timing, this is the roughly the content.

Qn: What is the factor that made both of you choose Temperature of Love? Is it the contents or… or other factors that you’re satisfied with to take on this casting?

SHJ:  I’ll say it first

YSJ: Ok

SHJ:  Firstly, the script is very intricate.  It’s unlike recent dramas which are very fast paced. Things do not happen in just one day.  In one episode, you could have 30-40 scenes just  to express how you like a person. With such detailed expression,  we hope everyone would be able to relate and find it interesting. Of course the actors would do their best to show it. Honestly, there are very few drama scripts nowadays that addresses emotions so delicately  so when I saw the script… to totally immerse solely in romance line  is not an easy thing to do. It is easier for actors if it is going by events.  So I am attracted by the challenge of it and as well as the meticulous script so I chose this drama project.

YSJ:  First I get this feeling that if I choose t act as Jung Sun, I think I will be able to feel  happiness personally as Yang Se Jong . Actually I do feel a bit tired in day to day life  and I feel really down..only a few weeks back/ a few months before. But when I read the script, I had these feelings  and just as sunbae-nim mentions  the expression of the emotions does not suddenly goes  up and down… maybe in the latter part it may be like this  but base on the script that is out now, it is not like that. It is very subtly defined. At the beginning I tried to find those explicit emotions but I couldn’t  so my thoughts at that time was that’s how it is when you really like someone… so its this and that, many aspects that attracted me.

SHJ:  I think its more or less the same meaning.  There are many ambiguities in the  way of our expressions. Its not purely like nor dislike  but something in between like having some dislike even when you like. There are many types of expressions like this  these are actually all the emotions that we all have so it will be good if we can deliver it well.

Qn. Both of you have also acted in Romantic Doctor together but this time you have become a couple. What are your thoughts on collaborating again?

YSJ:  Firstly I am very happy to be able to work with sunbae-nim again.

SHJ:  do you need a drink?take some water first .. please wait a while.

YSJ:  thank you

Qn. What are your thoughts on working together again?

YSJ:  Firstly I am very happy and excited. And when we met again, the feeling was very different  from the time when we met on Romantic Doctor. Its much better now  but it was awkward when we first met for script reading.  I will waver whenever I look at sunbae-nim’s eyes  but this is not a bad feeling  rather it is due to excitement. Right now, there is no such uneasy feelings  when we are filming, the awkwardness is gone  and we are now filming totally as On Jung Sun and Hyun soo.

SHJ:  Its the same for me, from sunbae and hoobae relationship  there was some uneasiness. But now it is so much more comfortable  and we can discuss or exchange ideas more casually  but I just felt he is too inhibited and kept addressing me as sunbae-nim  this makes me wonder if I am the cause of his discomfort. The filming is very fun.

YSJ:  sunbae-nim did not make me uncomfortable

SHJ:  what’s this

Qn. Yang Se Jong is acting as a chef this time  do you find that your cooking skills have improved?

YSJ:  Improved a lot.

Qn. What are you best at?

YSJ:  Firstly, I have no prior cooking experience. I don’t know such things like seasonings  but Chef-nim taught me  now at least I know how to make seasonings.

SHJ:  really?

YSJ: yes

SHJ:  that’s nice

Qn. When you were filming Feasts of God, you did traditional Korean cuisine right did it help with your cooking skills?

SHJ:   No it didn’t.  For me it didn’t, he went to take classes but  as for me I only learn the skill of cutting but not seasonings. My cutting skills were good and in the drama we don’t need to do the seasonings.

SHJ: I’m so envious. so you are good at seasonings right? (to YSJ)

Qn. Your drama has always been well received by the female public .For this project what’s the important thing that you want to convey?

SHJ:  I’m not sure what’s the situation like in Taiwan. But in Korea, although there are many noona-dongsaeng couples now however, people still view it very conservatively. So this aspect will make the woman hesitant about noona-dongsaeng relationships.  it’ll be good if I can show this part of the emotions well  and   will age really be a major stumbling block for 2 person in love? These are the points that I hope will be carried across. So I hope people will  consider these aspects.

SHJ:  Is there prejudice in Taiwan over noona-dongsaeng romances?  None at all? (shows thumbs up sign)

Qn.  Yang Se Jong has been described as Rookie monster online. What kind of acting do you hope to show through this project? What can we look forward to?

YSJ:  firstly I am not a rookie monster. Primarily, expectations… I will be faithful to the drama script  and put my focus on Hyun Soo sunbae and even more concentration towards this project. Rather than say what to expect out of this project its more of going back to the basics of it all.  I’m putting my focal point on the script and Hyun Soo while filming.

Qn.  In conclusion, can you say a few words to the iQiYi taiwan viewers?

SHJ:  iQiYi?  Viewers of Taiwan iQiYi thank you for your interests in our drama. We are doing our best in filming and  I believe everyone would be able to feel the warmth and be touched by this romance story.  Thank you for your interest and love.

YSJ:  Please give us your interest and love. Please look forward to Temperature of Love.

SHJ/YSJ: Thank you

———SHJ greetings—————–

Hello Taiwan viewers.  I am Seo Hyun Jin.  Temperature of Love will be showing thru iQiyi in Taiwan. I hope everyone will watch it.  Let’s meet in Taiwan iQiYi.  Love you.

[Eng Transcript] Temperature Of Love PressCon – Seo Hyun Jin cut

“Temperature of Love Press con 14092017′ – Seo Hyun Jin Cut

Q. What’s the reason for selecting this drama?

SHJ:       My previous drama focuses mainly on the events, so I wanted to try one that focuses on emotions. And writer Ha Myung-Hee’s writing is very detailed and delicate. There are many dramas that centers around events. But for this drama, the main focus is on the emotion/love lines between the characters. Frankly speaking, it is not easy to act out such tender actions but I will do my best to show it.

Q. What is the charm of the character?How did you prepare for it?And what if you compare it with Oh Hae Young?

SHJ:       Lee Hyun soo is not an outstanding person, although she is a writer. She often fails at contests, but belongs to those hardworking and persevering type. I think most people are like that, of course she has some talent. But just like ordinary people, whether its 2nd, third or a hundred…Lee Hyun soo is just one of them. She is one who works steadily step by step towards her dream, a very hardworking script writer. Honestly, there’s not much preparations needed to act as a script writer. Script writing is a totally different career, its you who create something. But as for me, its not something I’ve done before. I have experiences like working hard but never done any creative before. So to act as a script writer, I can only work hard to follow the script faithfully.

The difference between Oh Hae Young and Lee Hyun Soo. Oh Hae Young is a very courageous woman, Lee Hyun soo is very timid, Oh Hae Young remains a minority, even while acting, she became my aspiration. If I can also live so courageously like her. On the other hand, Hyun Soo often observes and is considerate of people around her.  She lets go when she should hang on to certain people. And then misses the opportunity, and pretending that it didn’t matter. I’m also like that, as you grow older, you become more timid, and have phobia towards love. So Lee Hyun Soo is similar to most ordinary female. So it may cause some viewers some discomfort when they see it, because they might feel sad since it is similar to themselves. However, it will be good if it can resonate with the viewers.

Q. What are your thoughts on working again with Yang Se Jong?

SHJ:       I also felt the same, that it might be better if we were strangers in the beginning. Se Jong is always polite and respectful, always calling me sunbae-nim. So when you have to suddenly become lovers, it becomes a bit awkward. But as everyone knows, he is a very hardworking person. And he just acted a very difficult character in <Duel>, that makes me see his manly side. So when we are at filming site, there’s such a saying that you can tell if you see a person as a man or as a friend in 3seconds. And I can see him as a man so I am happy that it seems I’ve met a good partner.

Q. What are you own thoughts about love? (this qn was not translated, guessing base on the answer she gave.)

SHJ:       It’s a rom-com drama. Although it seems everyone is doing it, but when I meet up with friends what everyone is most curious about is always each other’s romance life. Writer Ha Myung Hee mention this “Can a human love another?” and using this as a base to write the script.During the last 6 months, the question that cause me to ponder the most is can someone love another more than themselves? Or whether if one can love another just as they love themselves? I feel that this is impossible, and is in a state of giving up on love. But the writer told me, after you film this drama, you will want to find love. Isn’t there a saying nowadays of this generation? giving up on love, marriage and having children? Those extreme cases, even say there are 5 types of abandonment. But people will still love. Writer’s reason for love, is to have pure love.And this is also the reason why I chose this drama too.

Q. After your epic kiss scenes with Eric, what is the standard of romance for the new drama? And what are your opinion on noona-dongsaeng romance? What is your love temperature right now?

SHJ:       There is a kiss scene at the beginning, but its those innocent kind. Its like a kiss between university students and its cautious. As to the standards after this, only the writer will know.But I guess it should be going deeper as it goes, maybe we can look forward to that?

And about my love temperature, who knows?I  kept thinking, maybe I would not be able to understand love until I die. Love temperature can be high or low, currently at a low right now.  So hopefully when I film the drama, it will raise the temperature a bit.

Ah noona-dongsaeng romance? Love has nothing to do with age, but it depends on individual. In  my eyes, it is the attraction of the opposite sexes. I think its important whether you can converse with that person.

Q. Which scene leaves the deepest impression?

SHJ:       In the drama, Hyun Soo and Jung-sun lives in the same neighbourhood. One’s address is 53 and the other 35. There was a delivery package that was wrongly delivered. It was suppose to be for Jung-sun but got delivered to my place. The scene where I deliver the package to his place.  I felt it was beautiful at that time, didn’t think that he will be home but he came out.

Q. In which episode is that?

SHJ:       Because we don’t film in order. but it should be in Episode 2.

Q. You have done gourmet shows, and also acted as a chef, what food Yang Se Jong cooks is good?

SHJ:       There are scenes in the drama where he cooks for me, but we haven’t filmed that, so I haven’t tasted it. but Yang Se Jong cooks for some the seafood rice and medium rare steak. I heard was  very delicious, so I am looking forward to that. His occupation is a chef, so there will be many pretty and delicate food for everyone to feast their eyes on.

Q. What is the attraction point of the drama?

SHJ:       Like what I said earlier, it is not a love that develop out of an event. But it is the character’s love line that is the main event itself. You won’t have things like liking in one episode and not liking in another episode. But the feelings of like is developed slowly over the process in an intricate manner. Those viewers who like fast development plot may have different thoughts. But I feel it is most suited for this season. How it will be presented will depends on us actors.We will all work hard and hope everyone would give their support.
