Random Sauces From All Around The World
Finally I have finished watching 178 episodes of 2008-2009 K-Drama “You Are My Destiny”, which had Yoona SNSD as the main lead. The series itself is not that interesting all the time (just like soap operas in Indonesia); with the core problem being male protagonist’s parents’ consent on his marriage with Yoona. Thankfully there are side stories about the family that are quite interesting. While watching the series, one of the actress, Jung Ae Ri, have captured my attention.
Though her role’s personality is not as strong as Yoo Hye Ri’s (Yoona’s real mother), Jung Ae Ri, taking the role of Yoona’s stepmother, somehow left a good impression, especially with her expression. Her almost-50-years-old face seems to be soft and caring (and sometimes angry annoyed), motherly face. Here is a quote about her on the net.
Since the ’90s, veteran television and stage actress Jung Ae-ri has been one of the go-to gals for portrayals of stoic, intellectual women.She’s played every stock character in Korean drama — doting daughter-in-law, loving mother, working professional and even mediator for a television show that deals with troubled marriages. Although her recent roles have been diverse over a wide spectrum, one thing is common in all of them. They have all been portrayals of mothers.
Have you ever watched her acting? Out of her 30 series and movies, which one do you think is the best?
