16th Busan International Film Festival

15 October:
Last week, actress Oh In Hye made headlines with her revealing orange dress at the 16th Busan International Film Festival. Thanks to a plunging neckline, Oh In Hye went from being someone most people never even heard of to being the “Cinderella” of the BIFF.

Naturally, people were curious over her next choice of dress.
On October 14th, the BIFF celebrated its final day, and Oh In Hye stepped out in a dress much different from her first. She personified a “black swan” by donning a black lace dress with feathered detailing and sequins.
Her first dress’ key point was the gaping neckline, but since it drew much controversy, Oh In Hye decided to go with a more modest look for her second dress. By selecting a piece with eye-catching black feathers sewn onto the bust, it seems like she wanted to give a playful nod to her scandal. Her curvaceous figure was outlined more clearly, and tying her hair back allowed her milky-white profile to shine.
While the general consensus is that she made an improvement, netizens pointed out that Oh In Hye made one red carpet faux paus by wearing the same shoes from the previous night.
This dramatic transformation from scandalously sexy to elegant and glamorous allowed Oh In Hye to grab headlines once again.

Singer Baek Ji Young‘s beau Jung Suk Won is being coined as the ‘kind and courteous celeb’ by fans.
The actor was recently at the Busan International Film Festival, where he was rushed by hundreds of fans who wanted his autograph as well as photos. Although many celebrities would’ve been daunted by such a crowd, he took the time to be courteous to each one.
His gentlemanly manners were also seen at the press conference for his latest movie, ‘Emergency : Close to the Sun‘, where he stayed until the very end to interact with all of his fans.
His agency stated, “An overseas fan approached him just as he was about to leave and handed him a piece of paper with a pen. There wasn’t anything he could really lean the paper against, so he kneeled and signed the autograph on the stairs.”
The actor proactively promoted his new movie, conducting several interviews at the BIFF ‘Night of the Stars’.
I’m just glad that I have fans that recognize who I am,” Jung Suk Won stated. “This is a place for everyone who’s ever been in movies or those who are complete movie buffs. If given the opportunity, I would come often and work really hard.”

On October 9th, actor Jang Geun Suk attended an open discussion at the ‘Busan International Film Festival‘ on topics revolving around the future of the movie industry.
One of the topics that he touched on was the need for reform for child actors.  Having started his career as a child actor himself, Jang Geun Suk gave some valuable insight into the conditions children are forced to endure.
He stated, “Looking back to my past, it feels like I ran nonstop without having the chance to wake up and look around.  There are no laws protecting child actors in Korea or any restrictions as to film time and education.  Child actors here work under vastly different conditions compared to child actors overseas.”
He continued, “I’d film from one morning to the very next morning, and even have to skip school on top of that.  One day, I want to make sure that laws be put in place for the future of our child actors.  I want to ensure that they be given time and freedom to themselves.”

On October 8th, thousands of fans and reporters gathered for Song Hye Gyo‘s special movie event for her film, “Today“, at the ‘16th Busan International Film Festival‘.

With a bright smile, she greeted, “I didn’t think so many fans would show up.  Thank you so much, it really is surprising.” Her gala presentation centered around one of the major themes of her movie, ‘forgiveness’.
She began, “I’ve lived life thus far without thinking too much into the act of forgiveness. This movie, however, gave me an opportunity to take a look at it in a different light. I thought about what the act of forgiving really means while immersed in my character, and realized that although there are times you have to forgive, it’s always not the easiest act.”
Song Hye Gyo continued, “After completing this movie, I came to the realization and decision that I will no longer be forgiving people so easily.  I will also not use the word so easily and think twice before using it. Even for the littlest of situations, I will think it over sincerely and genuinely before acting rashly.”

Kim Suro stepped in and explained the meaning to Jay, and after understanding the question, Jay answered: “Whether it be acting or making music, I don’t do it if I don’t want to“.
And when he was asked if he was reminded of his 2PM days during the shoot, he replied, “Honestly, I didn’t have enough time to think back. I was too busy focused on acting while preparing my new album at the same time.”

On October 6th, we reported that stars dazzled the red carpet for the 16th Busan International Film Festival. While there were many gorgeous ensembles on display, the outfit that generated the most buzz was actress Oh In Hye‘s.

Oh In Hye wore a daring Grecian goddess-inspired dress with a plunging neckline that drew everyone’s attention.

Netizens had mixed comments about her outfit, saying, “OMG not classy..”, “Very daring. Fashion takes courage sometimes”, and “Where is the rest of her dress???”
