Young Ae Birthday
Celebration Dinner for DJG
Lee Young Ae Writing to Dae Jang Geum Fans
Thank you. This is Lee Young-Ae.
Hello everyone, this must be the last time I will greet you as Jang-Geum. I guess I was deeply absorbed in Jang-Geum too. Sorry about my belated message.
Looks like the time has finally arrived to let go of Jang-Geum, whose life I have lived with all my heart for so long. Its too difficult for me to leave her behind alone. Even though we may forget Jang-Geum as time goes on, she will continue to go her way as she has so far.
I would like to thank Jang-Geum, who had been buried in history for hundreds of years and came back to awaken me to many valuable truths, as well as all Dae Jang Geum viewers, from our children who saw Dae Jang Geum through with Jang-Geum-like curiosity, to our loving grandmothers and grandfathers.
I am also deeply grateful to all Dae Jang Geum staffs, including Lee Byeong-Hoon the producer, Kim Young-Hyeon the scriptwriter, and the rest of the staffs and fellow actors. Looking back, it was tough yet enjoyable time.
I wish all you Dae Jang Geum viewers health and happiness. I hope that you will always remember to cheer up like Jang-Geum even in hard times.
With that, Jang-Geum bids farewell to you.

9th Pusan International Film Festival (korea)
Korean actress Lee Young-ae, host of the opening ceremonies of the Pusan International Film Festival, and Hong Kong actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai, the leading man in "2046," the movie that opened the festival, met on Friday. The meeting of the two popular actors was arranged by the organizing committee of the festival.
Tony Leung Chiu Wai started the conversation by saying that Lee Young-ae's appearances in "Joint Security Area" and "Spring Days Pass" was memorable.¡± Lee responded by blushing and saying that she too admired Tony on the screen, adding that having met him in person, she was convinced that he was a kind person.
Actress Lee Young-ae hosted the opening ceremony of the Pusan International Film Festival, with Tony Leung Chiu Wai, the leading man in "2046," the film that will open the festival. The two had a date on Friday afternoon.
When asked about love, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, who is loved by women around the world for his sensitive portrayals of contemporary men, he answered simply, ¡°Love is Kimchi.¡±Kimchi tastes and smells awful when you first make it, but it gets its own unique taste as time goes by, he said, adding that love should have that seasoned quality, soliciting loud applause from those in attendance. Cheers turned to sighs, however, when he added that he is skeptical of unchanging love. Lee, on the other hand, said that she believes in undying love and said that after watching the movie, "2046," Tony Leung Chiu Wai made her want to fall in love. It was the Hong Kong actor¡¯s turn to blush.
Answering questions about director Wong Kar-wei, who made "In the Mood for Love," "Happy Together" and "2046." Tony playfully remarked that because he rarely saw the director without sunglasses, it was hard to tell what he was thinking.
When asked if the two actors would like to work in a film together, Lee answered that the language difference would be a problem, but after watching "2046" she realized that movies could work beyond language. She added that it would be an honor if the two were to work together in a movie. Tony replied that he had seen many Korean films in the last few years and that if there were a good project, he would be happy to work with Lee. The two actors ended their date by saying that fans have been a great support and that the actors would repay that loyalty by making quality movies.
