Cheer Up Mr Kim Filming Site

Today, Shinhwa’s Kim Dong Wan as an actor won 49th Paeksang Arts Award – Male Actor Popularity Award for his role in Deranged as Jae-pil. So, I thought it is a great happy day to write this entry as a THANK YOU gift for MR KIM DW being a great actor hehehe :)

Dongwan known as MR KIM as one of the icon in shinbang, was because of his role in Cheer Up Mr Kim. A soap drama with 124 episodes featuring Kim Tae Pyung as a 32 years old unmarried man who is raising 4 children, 3 are whom are not related by blood, as their guardian. The story went around sharing how Mr Kim and his 4 children go through different hardship and accepting each other as real true family by showing the true love and understanding. With such great storyline, Mr Kim has now known Granny-Ahjumma Killer especially in the local markets. Everyone knows him, everyone loves him! :)

The drama often took place inside the house (which could be a studio shoot) as well as the playground. Though the drama have already come to an end, you might wish to take a look at the playground where secrets, laughters and tears were often captured? Just to share, this is a residential area, and I hope that, those who are really love to visit there please do not disturb the residents there… I know, we all love Mr Kim! :)

#we watched this scene too!

We stayed about 2 hours to see them filming and decided to leave after that because we were just too cold! So, we didn’t really manage to see them wrapped up… They must have filmed real late… (It’s about 11pm by then…) This filming, give us a really upclose view of Dongwan. I must say despite wearing just MR KIM clothes, he still look so good so charming. As much as we didnt sit too near due to filming angle, we still get a real good view of him…. and because they moved around, we moved too in order not to disturb them.

During ‘break-time’, Dongwan even played around with his fellow crews, this scene was so adorable, to see the real Dongwan instead of Mr Kim. teeheehee~ WooKyung as DW’s girlfriend is really really alot prettier in person…., we managed to see her real close while she was reciting and memorizing her lines.

The filming for today was mainly with Songah, as you remembered during EP122, Songah is going to leave the family to join her mum, lots of tears and heart to heart talk. Songah is so cute and lively, yet a great and talented young actress. She might be playing around before filming, but the moment she need to cry – She Cried; once the camera stop rolling… She is back to her cheerful self. Such a great lovely girl, and most importantly, she is so cute! :)

Some cute incident happened. DW was really playing around (trying to fight the cold) and he fallen from the metal thingy (where he sat together with Songah). LOL, and with playground cushion base, he didn’t fall too badly. And what he just did was actually in fact brighten up the atmosphere for the rest of the crew includes the director. hehe. They laughed… and I mean really laugh… This made the filming warmer especially with such cold. We were shivering so much and now you can imagine how cold they probably were for the past few months of late night filming? And our cute DW even put a heat pad on his neck while filming haha! WHY SO CUTE!!! :D
