You Are My Sunshine (directed by Park Jin-pyo), ready to be released on September 22, contains a direct narrative on the theme of love. Eun-ha, a sexy waitress at a cafe, is infected with the HIV/AIDS virus (Jeon Do-youn) and an innocent bachelor at a rural village, Seok-jung (Hwang Jung-min) is a person willing to die for his love in this tear-provoking movie.
We met Jeon Do-youn (32), who is ready to send a love message to the audience again after My Mother The Mermaid.
--This time, you play the role of a sexy waitress infected with AIDS. Wouldnt that harm your image as an actress?
You know, anybody wants to fall in love but they dont trust it. I thought I would get to trust it by being in the movie. But Eun-ha and I are different. I am brave in making decisions. I dont think any role would influence my image. In fact, I want to look prettier before my boyfriend and close friends.
--Contact; Happy End; I Wish I Had A Wife Too; Scandal, and so on. All of your movies deal with love (including affairs), right?
Love is my top priority. I simply enjoy it. I love books about it, and anything about it, basically. Without love in my life, I would become an old woman all of a sudden.
--But No Blood No Tears was not a love story, right?
(Surprised) No way. I did the movie because of the last words by Dokbuli (Jeong Jae-yeong), a gangster, to Su-jin (Jeon Do-youn). He said, You hate me that much? Buzz off! It really was something to me. Dokbuli is violent, but he never hits her with his fist. Thats a way of expressing love in his own way.
--It is a love story with a bachelor living in a rural village. Dont you want to do movies where you love decent and stylish guys?
I would never say no to that (laughing). (Playfully stroking a part of her forehead) I would welcome doing one with Jang Dong-gun.
--Your kissing scene was provocatively realistic. It seemed as if you really loved that person.
I had no personal feelings. (Laughing) I was not starving for one either. I just believed what I was feeling was real love. I believe how you think and act is well reflected in kissing scenes. I am the kind of actress who puts all her energy into the given role.
--That is why your male fans imagine being in love with you in their fantasy world, hoping Wouldnt she love me like that?
I would do that in real life. (Laughing) That would not be their fantasy. Dont call it that.
--Suk-jungs presents are some cows milk he milked himself, a rose, and a love letter to Eun-ha. Have you ever received anything like that from a man?
I am not used to receiving things from men. I feel more comfortable giving things. I have big ups and downs with my feelings and one day I was happy to receive flowers on a rainy day with a letter saying, Just thought you might feel lonely.
--Men will love you more because of that.
Why? Is it because I love giving things? (Laughing)
--What you wore in the movie, your panties and bra with a dotted pattern on a natural color, was really impressive.
I thought of wearing white underwear to show the purity and innocence of a woman who does not look so outside. But it was not something Eun-ha would do, so I changed it to be more like her.
--You are in your early thirties. How do you feel about that?
I am really a healthy person, but these days after I did shooting for days with no sleep, I could see the fatigue on my face. It made me somewhat worried. You know how there are many young and pretty actresses out there. But I dont want to look prettier compared to them. I just want to go with the natural flow, getting older as I am.
