This was during the promo tour for “Wolverine”. The photo shoot concept was a killer coming back from a job and to look all tortured and lonely. Basically, everybody was fangirling/fanboying over him during the photo shoot.
Your Korean really improved! How much did you improve compared to the “My Lovely Sam Soon” days?
At that time, I could say nothing but “hello, how are you?” [t/n: “annyeonghaseyo”]. I think I can understand almost nearly everything now. However, speaking is always complicated. I want to do well, so I don’t know if this isn’t reason I’m feeling even more this way.
Your Korean is already great. What else do you want to improve?
It’s because of acting. If I don’t pull off the language aspect, I can’t convey the emotion the way I should and it’s hard to do ad-libs. To me, Korean isn’t just a language, it’s a challenge.
I recently rewatched all the X-Men movies and I must say, I have no idea why so many people (especially movie critics) despise the first Wolverine so much. Sure, you’ll find some shitty GGI (mainly Wolverine’s claws) and some plot holes, but this goes for many other movies I know. To me, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is pretty entertaining, since it has a) Hugh Jackman, b) Liev Schreiber, c) the Canadian Rockies, and d) – most importantly – DANIEL HENNEY in it.
Another Marvel adaptation that didn’t work well was the B-movie / telefilm Marvel’s Man Thing. It was filmed in Australia and is only loosely based on the original series of Marvel comics. I was told that the real “Man Thing” was a complex and interesting character, but in this movie it is just hideous and — due to some very poor SFX — simply ridiculous. Do not search for it in my video, I left it out there in its dark damp swamp.
