Ku Hye-sun Talks About her Role in “BOF”

“Loving someone despite all obstacles may be one of the most difficult things in life. It may be harder than living in poverty,” said Ku Hye-sun, who is playing the heroine whom two of the four protagonists are pursuing in the KBS2 hit drama “Boys Over Flowers.” And that is why most women viewers are jealous of her.

In an interview at a shooting site at Eulwangri Beach in Incheon on Sunday, Ku said, “I was skeptical about its success when I decided to take the role. I doubted it would appeal to Koreans because it is based on a Japanese comic book. Taking the role itself was a challenge.”

Geum Jan-di, whom she plays, is an ordinary high school student who wants to be a swimmer. She happens to attend a school for rich children although her family is poor, with her parents running a small cleaners that they eventually lose to creditors. This gets her subjected to contempt and mistreatment, but she tries not to lose her dignity and faces her situation squarely.

Ku confessed that she herself couldn’t understand the character completely. “There were moments that I couldn’t sympathize with her. If I had been able to, I would not have had conflicts in my mind. I wondered why she tries to deal with all her difficulties alone and why she feels she has to take care of her family.”

But the 25-year-old actress said that Jan-di has made her a more genuine and happier person. “By playing the role, I have become more positive. I was sorry to realize that I am losing innocence as I get older, and that made it more difficult for me to be Jan-di. So whenever I couldn’t identify with her, I kind of forced myself to become more innocent.”

She continued, “And I actually recalled my high school years, and realized that what I cherished most then was the people I liked. It seems I felt that if I could be with them, I could do anything.”

The drama is enjoying great popularity thanks to Ku and the other stars who are giving their utmost effort despite some misfortunes they have suffered. Ku had a car accident on her way back to Seoul from a local shooting site and had to have the inside of her mouth stitched.

“I have to get a thorough examination when the shooting ends. I bumped my head hard as well, but had no time to get an examination due to the shooting schedule,” she said. “The schedule is so tight that we all have trouble with our physical conditions. We are suffering lack of sleep so much that we can fall asleep at any moment. Now that all the shooting will be over in a week, we will hang in there until then.”

In Incheon, she shot a scene where Jan-di, who has decided to part ways with her boyfriend Jun-pyo, played by Lee Min-ho, due to his mother’s disapproval, goes on a trip with him for the last time.

“But I want it to come to a happy ending. I personally like stories with happy endings because they warm people’s hearts. I hope my drama is also one of those kinds,” said Ku.

  1. that picture is really cute!
    The drama isn’t really living up to the hype…The storyline was quite boring. And the acting was so-so. I was expecting more from ku hye sun but her acting kind of went down. They way she talked sometimes almost made me think she had a bit of a lisp.

  2. i disagree🙂 there was good acting, but the story was somehow a let down. I think what made BOF popular and watcched till its very end aside from the eye candy, is the acting piece delivered by LMH and GHS. I wasnt able to watch other GHS drama, and bcoz of the that, i didnt have any expectations, so i heartily enjoyed her in BOF and i especially enjoyed her chemistry wd lee min hoo🙂 it was one of the best onscreen chemistry for me.

  3. it saw cut3

  4. I really like your beauty Ku Hye sun even without make up. Your innocent looks really match in the story. I like you and Ji Hoo who cares a lot with you from start up to the end of the story. If you’re still single, then its time for Ji Hoo to do something to win your heart. Ha ha ha what am i saying? OMG! This is the effecrt of watching you guys! I know its corny but I love you Ji Hoo!

  5. I love them both. Like, swear.😡 I can feel the love between Goo Jun Pyo and Geum Jan Di in their acting.

  80. ….perhaps im one of the craziest fans of BOF….even if ive already saw it a lot of times..the story still leaves something to me..theres a certain current running inside me when i see and feel the chemistry between jun pyo and jan di..i love all the characters.. the actors and actresses have performed their roles very well…they are such very good actors and actresses…perhaps BOF was the reason why i started liking korean entertainment..thats allll…

  81. im a big fan of bof..i really couldnt resist the cute faces of the lead stars in the series. oh how i wish i could see them personally. tsk! im totally a daydreamer! hehehe..its like being inlove head over heels with them. hmmmm…i miss bof so much since it ended last august of 2009. actually hindi ko rin pinalampas ung repeat nun last december and now that it is currently airing on studio23 ibang kilig parin parin ang napifeel ko wen im watching it.

    how i wish may sequel ang bof!!! geum jandi is just the cutest korean heroine of this series..

  82. joshim haseyo geum jandi coz i really love you..i will forever be a hana yori dango fan!!watever version it is..but the only thing i couldnt accept is wen phillipines will have its remake and they wouldnt be able to give justice to it..it will be very disapointing..

    among the f4 of this series, im totally actracted to woobin or kim joon. i love his talent, he sings very well and could definitely dance gracefully..i was jus a bit dissapointed coz he was not given an emphasis in the series though in the original manga serye hindi talaga ganun kaexpose ang role nia…anyways….

  83. Hi
    I m from iran
    geum jan di please love go jun pyo for ever and be together for ever it is my wish.since I saw bof I can not think to any thing else.love each other and do not kiss some one else.

  84. some other pewople here dont know how to speak korean…ya chingu is vry impolite specially when the one youn approachi9ng with is older than you!!!annyong-i kaseyo….

  85. sorry im very drunk…so some other character is incorrect… 아이라 imnida…im filipina also…and i love korean culture…..nanen hanguk saram imnida(im a korean,,,) heheheheh

  86. ku hye sun n lee min ho are realy cute couple so i like u both i am so much happy bcoz u both are real couple in ur life this pic realy cute i like gu jun pyo hair style in boys before flower have nice day.
