Life is beautiful Yeomjeong Musical movies are hard, but I want to try again
Se-yeon (played by Yeom Jeong-ah) in the movie “Life is Beautiful” resembles my mother.
He said, “I understand,” to his husband’s nagging to take a taxi because it’s late, but he can’t get on the bus and buy a pretty outfit comfortably.
Yeom Jeong-ah, who met at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 21st, said, “I was really tearful and upset to see Se-yeon as the same woman.”
“I’m also a mother and wife, so there were a lot of things I could relate to. When I read the scenario, I was so into Seyeon that I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. Se-yeon acted thinking that she was a woman who had made a pretty living with the money her husband earned, raised her children well, and took her husband’s support for granted.”
Se-yeon, who always put her husband and children before her, looks back on herself for the first time after being sentenced to a deadline and writes a bucket list. And she goes out to find her first love with her husband Jinbong (Ryu Seung-ryong).
Yeom Jung-ah said, “I understand that feeling so much,” adding, “When I think about what was the most beautiful moment in my life and when I was the most me, I think I would have thought, ‘I miss him (first love).”
“I think I watch this work a lot,” he said, “It’s so fun to have music with my favorite story.” “I’ve been waiting for it to be released,” he said, expressing extraordinary affection.
“The more I watch it, the more I cry. Is it because I expected the next scene?” I kept getting new lines and the moment I was hooked on music changed. It’s also good that music makes every story richer and allows you to go back and forth between sadness and joy without being awkward in terms of emotions.”
Life is Beautiful is the first jukebox musical (musical made with popular music) in Korea. Yeom Jung-ah, who has long dreamed of appearing in musical movies, recalled, “Even if I practiced from the morning, it was so hard because I couldn’t think of the dance and lyrics.”
“(When I was filming) I thought I should stop watching musical movies, but after watching the completed movie, I thought I could do it again,” he said. “But I think I’ll practice longer because I’m older now.”
Regarding Ryu Seung-ryong, who worked with the couple, he praised Ryu Seung-ryong, saying, “I thought what would have happened if Ryu Seung-ryong didn’t do it,” adding, “The actor is the one who laughs even though he is a husband who does a lot of hateful behavior.”
In the movie, Se-yeon recalls her first meeting with Jin-bong, which seemed like fate in the process of finding her first love, the early days of a happy relationship, the moments of a tearful breakup, and the sweet honeymoon. Also, I feel grateful when I think of people who cared about me and loved me.
Yeom Jung-ah said, “When I think about my life, I think this is the most brilliant moment.”
“I’m doing what I want to do as much as I want, and I have a loving family. I hope I can act for a long time in the future. I want to make new relationships with each person through my work. At the end, Seyeon said, “It’s enough to know how much I’m loved.” I think that’s right. I hope a lot of people can relate to the movie
