박시후, 작곡가 김형석 만났다…복귀작 ‘향기’ OST 참여기사입력

2014-07-28    16:09:32

[TV리포트=박설이 기자] 배우 박시후가 자신의 복귀작인 영화 ’향기’의 주제곡을 부른다.

28일 왕이넷 등 중국 언론에 따르면 박시후는 영화 ‘향기’의 한국어 주제곡을 직접 불러 영화 OST에 참여한다. 박시후는 ‘향기’의 주제곡 ‘니도래적성음’(你到來的聲音)의 한국어 버전을 부른다.

특히 이번 OST는 작곡가 김형석이 참여해 주목을 받고 있다. 김형석은 영화 ‘엽기적인 그녀’의 주제곡 ‘I Believe’를 만든 작곡가로 중국에서도 이름을 알렸다. 김형석은 이번 영화의 가편집본을 보고 국경을 뛰어넘은 사랑 이야기에 깊은 감동을 받아 주제곡을 작곡했다고. 김형석은 “박시후의 따뜻하고 순박한 목소리가 이 노래의 분위기와 정말 잘 맞았다”고 극찬을 했다는 전언이다.

한편 중국에서도 ‘I Believe’의 김형석과 박시후의 만남에 뜨거운 관심을 보내고 있다. ‘향기’를 통한 김형석과 박시후의 만남이 영화의 완성도에 어떠한 영향을 줄지도 기대를 모으고 있다. 박시후가 부른 노래는 뮤직비디오로 제작돼 한국에서 공개될 예정이다.

박시후는 복귀작인 영화 ‘향기’에서 한국인 인테리어 디자이너 강인준 역할로 분했다. 이 영화에서 박시후는 중국 라이징 스타 천란과 국경을 뛰어넘는 멜로 연기를 펼쳤다. 오는 8월 15일 중국 개봉 예정이다.

From “My Sassy Girl” to “Scent”

On July 28 the producer of “Scent” made an important announcement.  The Korean version of the theme song “The sound of your coming” will be sung by Park Si Hoo.  They have invited the songwriter of that megahit “I believe” (from “My Sassy Girl”), Kim Hyung Seok, to write the music and lyrics.  The song will express the heartfelt feelings of the Male God which will produce a “lingering scent”.

Even if the whole world is against me: “The sound of your coming” reveals Male God’s feelings

“Scent” is scheduled for release on August 15, and both industry insiders and the Chinese media are full of expectations.  [ED: We all know the story very well, so we'll skip the translation here.]  Park Si Hoo who has not been singing for two years is not only the male lead but also sings the theme song in Korean.  The producer Guo Li Jun said this has always been Park Si Hoo’s wish.  Park Si Hoo’s singing has always been considered not inferior to professional singers, and his singing the theme songs for his very popular dramas “The Princess’s Man” and “Prosecutor Princess” has won praise in the industry.  [ED: PSH never sung the theme songs for TPM or PP, not on the OST, anyway.  The only time he sang the TPM theme song "Again, today I love you" in public was at the TPM Fan Meeting in Tokyo in September 2012.  His "For you" was included in the Japanese OST of PP only, not in the Korean.]
aaaa
In this theme song Park Si Hoo reveals the feelings of a man in love: “Passing one another feels so embarrassing / always miss your beauty in dreams / your appearance makes the whole world slow down / it cannot be replaced.”  The scenario of long-distance love, something that defies geography, is also expressed in the lyrics: “Even if our love is divided by the sea, the waves will bring you to me.”  The remarkable thing is: Park Si Hoo whose career once hit rock bottom seems to be here expressing his own dream: “Even if the whole world is against me, I won’t give up.  I’ll be here, waiting for the sound of your coming.”
aaaaa
Invites “My sassy girl” theme song creator to join, Kim Hyung Seok praises Park Si Hoo’s voice as “lingering scent”aaaa

It is reported that Park Si Hoo personally invited the famous Korean music producer and composer Kim Hyung Seok to create the theme song “The sound of your coming”.  Anyone who hears the song will grasp the “lingering scent” feeling.  Kim Hyung Seok is now Korea’s most respected music producer and his masterpiece is the theme song “I believe” from “My sassy girl”.  As a “golden” producer, he has produced albums for many famous Korean singers and groups.
aaaa

At the invitation of Park Si Hoo, Kim Hyung Seok watched the rough cut version of “Scent” in advance.  Although the movie had not completed post-production, Kim Hyung Seok was deeply moved by the transnational love in the movie which strongly inspired him to create this song for Park Si Hoo in “Scent” – “The sound of your coming”.aaaa

Kim Hyung Seok not only wrote the music and lyrics, but also supervised Park Si Hoo’s recording of the song.  After listening to the recordings, he praised Park Si Hoo’s warm and rich voice which suits the temperament of this song, giving it a ”lingering scent” feeling.aaaa

It is reported that Park Si Hoo has invited Korea’s top team to create a MV for this song which will be released soon, before the movie’s release.  It will surely be well received by audiences.

从《我的野蛮女友》电影版电视版日剧版到《香气》

腾讯娱乐讯 由立卓兴宇影视传媒出品、北京云影博纳影视发行有限公司发行的电影《香气》,因集合大陆、香港、韩国三地创作精英,自宣布定档8月15日以来,备受业内人士和媒体看好。今日,电影《香气》发布重磅物料——韩语版主题曲《你到来的声音》。韩国微笑王子朴施厚亲声献唱了这首主题曲,并力邀电影《我的野蛮女友》主题曲创作者金亨熙包揽词曲创作,诉说男神心声,打造出“香气缭绕”的感觉。

就算全世界与我为敌:《你到来的声音》吐露男神心声

即将在8月15日上映的中韩合作电影《香气》描绘了一段异国恋情,韩国演员朴施厚饰演的是一名韩裔室内设计师,穿越千里来到中国寻找出走的女友,却因为一次偶然的相遇与陈燃饰演的女强人朱俐上演了一场“闻香识女人”。

已经两年没有开唱的朴施厚不但担纲男主角,更是亲自献声主题曲《你到来的声音》。据制片人郭立珺介绍,这是朴施厚个人强烈的愿望。朴施厚一直被认为有不逊于专业歌手的唱功,他曾为主演的大热韩剧《公主的男人》和《检察官公主》等演唱主题曲,备受业界好评。

朴施厚此度在主题曲《你到来的声音》中吐露了陷入爱情中的男神心声:“擦肩而过的感觉很狼狈,梦里又总是错过你的美,你的出现让整个世界慢下来,就这么的无可取代。”对于剧情中的异国恋,歌词也表达出了爱情不分地域的信念:“就算我们的距离隔着一片海,浪花会替我荡漾给你。”令人瞩目的是,事业曾陷入低潮的朴施厚似乎也在通过歌曲表达了对自己梦想的坚定:“就算全世界与我为敌,我也不会放弃,我会在这里,等你到来的声音。”

力邀《我的野蛮女友》主题曲创作人加盟 金亨熙赞朴施厚声音如“香气缭绕”

据悉,为了打造电影《香气》主题曲。“微笑王子”朴施厚亲自出动邀请韩国著名音乐制作人兼作曲家金亨熙创作主题歌《你到来的声音》,谱写出这首听到就让人感觉“香气缭绕”的歌曲。金亨熙是目前韩国最享有盛誉的音乐制作人,代表作为《我的野蛮女友》主题曲《I believe》。身为金牌制作人的他,同时也为不少韩国知名歌手及团体的专辑制作保驾护航。

在朴施厚的邀请下,金亨熙提前观看了《香气》粗剪版本,当时电影后期制作并没有完成,金亨熙却被电影中这段异国爱情深深打动,触发了强烈的创作灵感,为朴施厚和电影《香气》写出这首“男神心声”一般的《你到来的声音》。

金亨熙还监督了朴施厚的歌曲录制,听完朴施厚的录音后,他表示朴施厚温暖又浑厚的声音,非常契合这首歌曲的气质,令首歌曲充满“香气缭绕”的感觉。

据悉,朴施厚力邀韩国顶级团队倾心打造的歌曲MV将很快与大家见面,作为电影《香气》上映前的重磅福利,相信一定会受到广大观众的喜欢。

빨리, 빨리 시후씨! Ppalli ppalli, Sihoo-ssi!

This is Nance:

빨리, 빨리 시후씨! Ppalli ppalli, Sihoo-ssi!

(빨리 = quickly, faster , hurry)

3717717237_89940cd7aaaaaaaa

There is so much going on for Sihoo-ssi now with the ramp up of publicity in China, Korea and Japan, since 2 weeks ago when news started flowing in the press in these markets in rapid succession.

News on his being on top of voting charts, attesting to his popularity in key markets. News on his dramas being repeated over and over with overwhelming response in Japan. In China, after CDDA was aired, there was a huge surge in his popularity that TPM had to be urgently re-roadcast! Then there is news on his Japan fan meeting in September. Over 20 appearances in top Japanese magazines, and features on PSH are coming out in droves in Chinese magazines in August and September editions. The most recent news being the coming release of his first Chinese movie, ‘Scent’ on 15 August 2014 and that teaser movie trailer. Yes, that’s a little less than 3 weeks. I can barely wait to watch ‘Scent’. And I will find my way across the Chinese border to just watch it!

Call me impatient. Call me greedy. But I find these are just appertisers whetting my appetite and my cravings can’t be fulfilled until I can tuck into that lip-smacking main course! Sihoo-ssi making a return in a Korean drama!!!

I want to experience those ditzy days again when I sat in front of my laptop in Hong Kong on Saturdays and Sundays, waiting for the first airing of a new episode of Cheongdamdong Alice. And then waiting in anticipation all week for fresh episodes! Doesn’t matter that I didn’t understand a word of Korean and had to guess the conversations. I just want to experience again that adrenalin charged, heart palpitating feeling of watching Sihoo-ssi, hearing his deep baritone and enjoying his wonderful portrayal of the role! Korean dramas are not the same without him!

Ppalli, ppalli, Korean broadcasters, get your acts together and deliver some quality dramas, no more ‘fakes’ even if they are ‘A’ quality (A货). You have the best actor right there and if you don’t grab him now, you are darn silly. The whole world’s waiting for his return, not just China, Japan and Korea!

Ppalli, ppalli, Sihoo-ssi, don’t keep us waiting, please. Next year’s just way too long for us!!!!

Story behind PSH’s RIVERIVER Vol.03

For our Japanese members (or anyone who can read Japanese):

2014.07.24

お待たせしました!今日のリバリバこぼれ話は、RIVERIVER Vol.03の表紙をステキに飾ってくれた[パク・シフ編]でございま~す♪

シフ様と再会するのは1年半ぶり。スタジオで再会した瞬間、軽くステップを踏みながら、右手を上げて「よっ! 元気だった?」と挨拶してくれました。「ええ、おかげさまで。シフさんは?」と答える私をさわやかにスルーし(笑)「ははは〜」と大きな笑い声をあげてスタジオの奥に消えていったシフ様……。あいかわらずマイペースでございます。でもそんなところ、かわいくって憎めません (≧∇≦)キャー♪

インタビューは20分と時間が決まっていたので、1問でも多く質問をしたかったのですが、シフ様ってば、編集部が持参したリバリバ創刊号が気になって気になってしかたがないご様子(うぅぅ…ありがたいです!!)

「どうしてリバリバって名前なの?」から始まって、「いくら?」「韓国でも売ってる?」とこちらを質問攻めに(笑)。表紙を見ながら「あれ? これってジュンギ?」と聞くので、「超新星のユナクさんです」と答えると、「ジュンギに似てる!」を連呼。「日本のファンの間でもそう言われてますよ」と言うと、シフ様なぜか大爆笑!

「そうか~、みんなもそう言ってるのか~」とうれしそうにページをめくりながら、今度はCODE-Vのページではたと手が止まりました。身を乗り出して「えっー! 山に登って撮影したの? この山どこにあるの? こういうのすごくいいよ! 次は僕もこういうところで撮影したいよね!」と興奮マックス↑↑↑(ちなみにCODE-Vは高尾山で撮りました ^ ^)

そんなこと言われたらこっちだって黙ってられません! 負けじと身を乗り出し、「シフさんは富士山に登って撮影しましょうよ。日本一の山、富士山です!」と提案すると、「日本一の山 、富士山いいね~。近くに温泉ある? 温泉も悪くないよね」ときたので、「まかせてください! いいところ探しておきます!」と答えると、またまた大爆笑なシフ様。

本気なのか、はたまたこちらの反応を楽しんでるのか……。いやいや、きっと本気だと信じて、富士山&温泉ロケをあれこれ妄想計画中(笑)。シフ様、ぜひいつかリバリバと一緒に日本一の山を目指しましょーよ♪ よろしくお願いしまーーーす!!

Korean stars in win-win situation in China

Korean stars enter Chinese movie market with win-win results 

众韩星进军中国电影市场获得双赢效果

2014/07/23    10:41

20140723aaa

In recent years many Koreans stars have appeared on Chinese TV dramas.  And now some of them are making it to the big screen — movies.  For TV dramas the prime consideration is ratings, and for movies the most important thing is the actor’s status which will affect the box office.  Hollywood used Lee Byun Hun and Rain to ensure their movies would do well in the Asian markets, and Chinese film-makers apply the same rationale in choosing Korean actors.  Korean stars entering the Chinese market is a win-win situation for both parties.

Article goes on to list those Korean stars who have made it big in Chinese movies, notably Song Hye Kyo who has appeared in Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster” and John Woo’s upcoming “The Crossing”.

There’s mention of other Korean actors whom we shan’t bother with.  All we are concerned with is Park Si Hoo whose first Chinese movie “Scent” is scheduled for general release all over China on August 15, 2014.

Just like Hollywood using Korean stars to expand their Asian markets, so Chinese film-makers also hope to cultivate new markets in Asia and consolidate the old ones.  Another reason Chinese movies use Korean stars is because of their better packaging and guarantee of quality.  Following Hallyu, Korean fashion, make-up, etc. are making their way into China and are very well received.

Two reasons Korean stars like to be in Chinese movies: 1) higher pay, and 2) stepping stone to the global market.  One management company representative revealed that Korean stars receive double the payment (they get in Korea) for being in a Chinese TV drama.   A Korean actor said Hollywood used many Chinese actors (before Korean) because of the huge Chinese market.  There are Chinese-language markets all over the world, so for a Korean star to enter the Mainland Chinese market would be tantamount to entering Chinese markets all around the world, and this would be the stepping stone eventually to break into Hollywood.

随着韩流风靡中国,韩流明星纷纷扎堆中国市场。在中国荧屏上看到韩国演员已是司空见惯的事情,然而近来不少韩国演员开始拓宽发展空间,走向中国大银幕。
拍摄电视剧前需考虑收视率来选择演员,而选择电影主角时,演员的知名度更是对票房起到决定性作用,因此制片方在选择电影主角时需要考虑的更多。正如美国好莱坞瞄准亚洲市场而启用韩流明星李炳宪和Rain一样,中国电影界启用韩流明星也出于同样的道理。韩流明星进军中国电影界对双方来说可谓是互惠双赢。

在顶级明星中,宋慧乔在中国电影界的活动非常活跃。去年她出演了导演王家卫的新作《一代宗师》,该影片被选为柏林国际电影节的开幕电影。之后,她又和著名导演吴宇森合作,担纲影片《太平轮》的主角。《太平轮》剧组在戛纳电影节闪亮登场,引起巨大反响,该作品将于今年冬季在中国上映。宋慧乔通过和中国著名导演的合作,在走进中国的同时走向了世界。日前她已确定出演第三部中国电影,新电影是由中国同名畅销书《我是女王》改编的一部现代片,与此前宋慧乔出演的历史电影有所不同。

继宋慧乔之后,韩国演员孙泰英加盟中国影片《情战》,担任女主角。该影片已完成拍摄,即将上映。此外,林秀香也被选为中国科幻三维电影《海洋之恋》的女主角,本月底出席在山东举行的制作发布会后会立刻投入拍摄工作。

在男明星中,权相佑出演了成龙的动作大片《十二生肖》。最近男团Super Junior成员崔始源加盟中国电影《破风》,池珍熙从上月开始在中国拍摄爱情喜剧《拆婚联盟》,朴施厚出演的电影《香气》将于今年下半年和观众见面。

就像好莱坞启用在亚洲市场极具影响力的韩星一样,中国影片选择韩星同样旨在扩大市场,提升影片在亚洲市场的票房。此外,圈内人士还指出,中国影片启用韩星的目的还在于更好地包装作品。孙泰英所属经纪公司代表表示,中国电影人认为选择韩星可以保障影片质量。随着韩流盛行,韩国的时装、化妆手法等在中国倍受青睐。中国现代影片启用韩流女星的话,影片整体风格可变得更为时尚。林秀香所属经纪公司代表也表示,近来中国电影界非常关注韩国演员。林秀香之所以能被选为《海洋之恋》的女主角,就是因为中方期待在韩流火热的背景下通过韩国演员创造出协同效应。

另外,韩国演员出演中国电影大致有两大理由,第一是片酬高,第二就是能通过中国市场走向全球。一位经纪人表示,在中国出演电视剧的片酬是韩国的两倍多,所以韩星们纷纷扎堆中国市场。一名演员还表示,好莱坞在启用韩流明星之前启用了众多中国演员,这是因为中国市场巨大。华语圈市场遍及全球,韩星进军中国市场就等于进军世界各国的华语市场,以此为垫脚石最终有望实现打入好莱坞的梦想。(完)

PSH in 2005….

We’re referring to PSH’s first drama in January 2005 in which he had his first speaking part.  Let’s just call it a cameo — in a 17-episode drama, he appeared for only 2:20 minutes.  He was billed as “#2 actress’s ex-boyfriend” and his role was totally forgettable.

Except his mother has not forgotten about it.  In fact, in “Star Life Theater” in early 2012 she complained PSH’s role was too slight, his appearance too brief.  “Why aren’t you allowed to say more?” she queried, to which PSH replied: “Because that’s the way the script was written.”  But her concluding sentence was: “I never imagined he would become the kind of actor he is now.”FFF

PSH wins 63rd in a row

cn-bqPSH photo from the cover of BQ Weekly

PSH is the winner again in Stage 242 of #8 voting site (that ended at midnight 2014.07.26) — 63rd in a row!  PSH continues to set the record of MOST CONTINUOUS WINS for this site, now exceeding BYJ’s by 9.  He received 11,126,955 votes, 4.7 million votes more than 2nd place Wu Yi Fan.

123140726-1-2aaaa

The situation this week is drastically different from last week.  The EXOs are back!  It is now summer holidays and the kids are out of school.  We can expect to fight them tooth and nail for the next several weeks, just like before.  Ex-EXO Wu Yi Fan even defeated Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Min Ho, but not our PSH^^

Our efforts since May 2013 have paid off, not just in retaining the gold crown (actually gold cup) for PSH, but also finally attracting the attention of the Korean media, several of which have been quoting our “PSH wins 62nd in a row”^^

This is the 63rd week in a row PSH has won this competition.  Last 62 times he defeated Jang Geun Suk x 4, Kim Hee Chul x 4, Moon Geun Young, G-Dragon x 4, Kim Hyun Joong x 5, Wu Yi Fan (Kris) x 12, Oh Se Hun x 12, So Ji Sub, Hwang Ji Tao, Lee Min Ho x 10, Lee Jun Ki, Kim Soo Hyun x 5, Lee Jong Suk, and Rain.

123140726-2aaaaa

PSH’s cumulative votes are 740,211,047! (Stages 180 to 242 – Just count the gold cups!)  Bae Yong Jun’s record of continuous wins were set over a period of 2 years (at that time the competition was held every 2 weeks).  This is our next target — We want to make sure PSH wins 108 in a row (and beyond!)

Every week is a new challenge. So keep fighting!
