Yoo Ah In, Junie, and Jang Nara for the film "Sky and Sea."

“I only had several acting roles in the early days of my career but my onscreen image became so fixed I was perplexed. But now, I’m not. I don’t choose drama roles for the sake of changing my image. More important is the quality of the script and whether I am able to do it.”

Jang Nara (28 ) returns to the big screen in the film “Sky and Sea,” her first movie role since her last 2003 film “Oh! Happy Day.” In a press conference at an Apgujeong club Thursday, she was responding to a question on whether she was wary of an image transformation.

Jang shot to stardom upon her debut with her cute and jovial image. She is now 29 in Korean age but still maintains the same adorable look. She plays a pure-hearted 23 year old in the new movie “Sky and Sea.”

“I turn 30 next year. I needed makeup to look younger in the film. Looking at my made-up appearance in the mirror was embarrassing (laugh). I think staying young at heart is most important. Staying away from excessive dieting is also a key to looking young.”

Singer Jang Nara (28), nicknamed “angel donator,” has donated 8 billion won worth of clothing to Sichuan province, China, which suffered a devastating earthquake in May.

Jang’s aides say the donation was conducted in cooperation with the parent firm of a Chinese down jumper manufacturer for which Jang is the PR model. The company donated 100,000 jumpers to Jang’s foundation, which delivered them to a charity agency in Sichuan.

The wholesale price of the 100,000 jumpers is 18 million yuan (3.6 billion won) but the retail price totals 40 million yuan (8 billion won).

In the delivery ceremony, Jang said she was happy to visit Sichuan and provide the quake victims with the clothing.

The charity agency will distribute the jumpers to the victims for emergency winter protection.

After the donation, Jang went to a makeshift elderly center at a Chengdu suburb and delivered some clothes herself.

Hallyu star Jang Na-ra will be appointed as an honorary citizen and honorary publicity ambassador of Jinan, Shandong Province coming Sunday. Jang has steadily done many charity works in China.

The city of Jinan has decided to applaud Jang’s steady philanthropic work by granting her the honorary citizenship.

In response to the decision, Jang has said that she’s honored to be named an honorary citizen, especially as a foreigner working in China.
