About This DVD
Having lost five kilograms to prepare herself for this role, JANG Jin-young displayed for the first time in 'Scent of Love' her capabilities in tear-filled acting. In total she appears in 13 scenes in which her character cries. Considering that the scenes in which she appears, from the time of her character's college years to the end of the film, total 32, almost half of her scenes required her to cry. Everyone knows the difficulty of performing such scenes, but JANG Jin-young carried it off so well that she made it look easy.
Some actresses are remembered fondly for their performances in Korean melodramas, such as SHIM Eun-ha in 'Christmas in August', JEON Do-yeon in 'A Promise', CHOI Jin-shik in 'The Letter', LEE Young-ae in 'Last Present', and LEE Mi-yeon in 'Indian Summer'. Now JANG Jin-young adds her name to this list as one of the premiere heroines of Korean cinema.
A new force has appeared in the Korean film industry. The focus of the film world's highest expectations in 2003 is actor PARK Hae-il.
Following the line of celebrated actors such as HAN Suk-kyu ('The Contact', 'Christmas in August'), PARK Shin-yang ('The Letter',' A Promise'), LEE Jung-jae ('Il Mare', 'Over the Rainbow'), and YU Ji-tae ('Ditto'), PARK Hae-il made his debut as a guitar-strumming high school student in 'Waikiki Brothers', followed by his acclaimed role in PARK Chan-ok's award-winning 'Jealousy is My Middle Name' (winner of the New Currents award at Pusan 2002 and the VPRO Tiger Award at Rotterdam 2003). Now, in taking on the role of "In-ha" in 'Scent of Love', he is the focus of the Korean film industry's highest expectations.
He appears in no less than three films this year. Among them he takes the lead in 'Scent of Love', the story of a woman's sadness at parting from the man who has given her the happiest moments of her life. In his other two films as well, he plays key roles that highlight his acting talent. After being recognized for his potential in 'Waikiki Brothers', this year he displays his abilities as an actor of the highest level. After the praise lavished on 'Jealousy is My Middle Name' at the 2003 International Film Festival Rotterdam secured the film an international audience, PARK appears again in 'Scent of Love', drawing forth tears from countless female viewers with his portrayal of a selfless and devoted love.
In-ha could smell the "scent of the chrysanthemums" after seeing Hui-jae arguing on behalf of a pregnant woman on the subway. The two meet again in a student club at their university, but the already-in-love Hui-jae brushes off In-ha's feelings for her as an adolescent crush. After many years, when Hui-jae has lost her love and living without hope, In-ha's love comes in and brightens up her life with intensity. A movie based on the best-selling novel of the same name by KIM Ha-in.
