SNSD’s Soo Young recently revealed that the movie I AM reminded her of her resolution she made as a trainee.
On April 30, the showcase for the movie I AM was held at a CGV movie theater in Yeongdeungpo, Seoul. . Many acts representing SM Entertainment, including SNSD, TVXQ, SHINee, Super Junior, and Gangta, attended the event.
SNSD’ Soo Young said, “Watching the movie, I was surprised to see some scenes from old days that even I don’t remember. I was really impressed and wondered how the film makers managed to get those old films and edit them for a movie.”
The leggy beauty of SNSD added, “The movie really reminded me of the old days. It was too busy for me to recall the old days when I was a trainee and the resolutions I made during those days. Watching the movie allowed me to do that. The movie is dedicated to all the fans of SM Town’s artists, but it looks like a great present for me.”
I AM is a biographical film featuring SM Town’s artists and their years of efforts and the stories behind the process of becoming world-famous stars—the first Asian singers to perform on the stage at New York’s Madison Square Garden, a center of pop music. The high-profile movie will be released on May 10.
Park Yu-chun of JYJ has become the latest K-pop star to be involved in a car accident after working late into the night.
Ilgan Sports reported yesterday that Park’s manager, who was driving the star despite his drowsiness, crashed into the back of a truck at around 1 a.m. on April 26. The van was badly damaged and Park complained of neck and back pain immediately after the incident.
Still, he wasn’t able to see a doctor that day due to filming commitments.
“Park, like the rest of the staff and crew working on the drama’s set, only manages to get about two hours of sleep per night. The show is practically live as they are always strapped for time before it airs. Everyone is exhausted, and so I imagine that the manager was fatigued and in no state to drive,” said a source who works on the set of “Rooftop Prince,” in which Park is currently starring.
Fatigue-related car accidents are a common occurrence in the entertainment industry, and actor Jang Keun-suk was in a similar accident just days ago.
