Lee Min Jung from the movie “Wonderful Radio”, which is in second place at the box office, revealed a behind-the-scenes story.
[ OLD ARTICLE FROM JANUARY ]
Lee Min-jeong draws all attention on herself in the movie with her comical ad-libs, dancing, singing and playing the guitar. The scene where DJ Jin-ah plays the piano was made on the spot. Lee Min-jeong started playing the piano without any sheet music and director Kwon Chil-in made this scene on the fly after hearing her.
She didn’t stop here though, and later personally made the opening manuscript like a real radio DJ. Kwon suggested that she write “an opening comment which sounds like it came from DJ Jin-ah’s heart” and Lee Min-jeong agreed with him saying, “Writing it in my own helped me go deeper into the character and I thought it would be more touching if I wrote a true story of my own”.
Lee Min-jeong used her free time to write the opening comments and said, “I wrote and rewrote my draft four or five times”.
“Wonderful Radio”, which includes Lee Min-jeong’s singing, dancing, performing and autobiographical elements, was released on January 5th and is doing very well.
