[NEWS] UEE sobs her heart out in ‘High Society’ still cuts


‘High Society’ has released still cuts of UEE!

The drama will kick off its first episode on the 8th, and to increase anticipation, it’s released the still cut of its main character UEE. UEE plays Jang Yoon Ha, the youngest daughter of a chaebol house, but she wants to live plainly with a man she loves.

Because of her background, she is approached by men who are just looking for riches and ends up getting hurt by them. The tears on the still cut are also because of the same reason. ‘High Society’ said, “This scene shows Yoon Ha’s hurt, soft side even though she looks strong on the outside. UEE has already earned the nickname ‘queen of tears’ through various works, and she once again showed an amazing emotional acting. We look forward to UEE’s hard work and passionate acting reaching out sincerely to the viewers.”

[NEWS] UEE chooses between Hyungsik and Sung Joon + talks about criticism on her acting


‘High Society’s Sung Joon and UEE appeared on this week’s ‘One Night of TV Entertainment’ and shared their feelings on the criticism early in their acting career as neither originally started off as actors.

Sung Joon, who was originally a model, stated, “I first got to start being an actor while I was modeling; at that time, I got a lot of hate for not being able to act.  However, I think I was stimulated by the criticism, so I wanted to do it [more].  I want to do better and hope that I would become an actor that is like an actor.”

UEE, who started off as an idol, stated, “Of course there is a lot of judgment regarding an idol acting, so I think I need to work harder.  I will work in order to show a perfect image after filling up the places where I’m lacking.”

Also on this episode, she was asked to choose between co-stars Hyungsik and Sung Joon, ultimately choosing the latter.  Who would you choose?  And what are your thoughts on their acting skills?

[NEWS/OP-ED] To be or not to be evil in High Society


We’ve got one last promo push for High Society, which premieres next week with the story of a young chaebol woman (UEE) who puts on the guise of an ordinary woman, hoping to find love with someone who values her for herself rather than her riches.

There are a couple of new posters out as well, and I’ll just let y’all scroll down to enjoy the Engrish. It’s actually just cheesy enough to be hilarious, though perhaps inadvertently. Hey, I’ll take my hilarity however it comes! And at least the photobooth collage poster is very cute, showing the four main leads in varying stages of flirting and aegyo — I hope that cuteness carries over into the drama itself. It’s hard to tell from the previews, which are skewing more dramatic, but I’ll have my fingers crossed that High Society settles into a lighter chaebol romance once the setup is in place.

In the teaser, UEE’s character Yoon-ha is accused of being responsible for someone’s death by her shrill mother, who wails at her to die in their place. This must be her older brother, the expected successor to their father’s large corporation. Her father recognizes that Yoon-ha is smart and competent — compared to her Paris Hilton-esque older sisters, for instance — but the company was to pass to the son… until that’s no longer an option.

[NEWS] Sung Joon and Uee Say They Locked Lips Right After Meeting for “High Society”


Uee and Sung Joon have revealed that they had quite the first encounter when they met to film the teaser for their upcoming SBS romantic melodrama “High Society.” At a recent press conference, the two stars talked about what went down.

Uee says, “We were like, ‘Hello, I’m Sung Joon,’ ‘Hello, I’m Uee noona,’ and then right away said ‘Should we start?’ and we just did the kiss scene. After that we were really comfortable with each other.”

“One of Sung Joon’s great points is that when he’s acting he always makes his co-star feel relaxed,” she says. “If I make a mistake in a scene and apologize, he tells me not to worry about it. He’s the kind of guy who really makes you fall in love with him when you’re acting.”

Sung Joon adds, “Since the first thing we shot together was the kiss scene in the teaser, getting close physically made us also get close psychologically.”

Regarding what he likes about his co-star Uee, Sung Joon says, “It’s easy to get cranky when you’re working. But Uee isn’t like a typical actress, she’s more like a hyung to me. So we work well together.”

“High Society” will be airing its first episode on June 8.

[NEWS] Sung Joon compliments UEE on her fine body


Well, Sung Joon, you are not so bad yourself.

The model-turned-actor talked about his ‘High Society’ co-star, UEE, during the drama’s press conference on June 3 at the SBS Hall – and he spared no compliments.

He said, “UEE has a lot of merits, but if I were to choose one – just one – her body is extremely nice.”  She is known for her tall, slim-yet-curvy figure!

“There was quite an age difference with the female co-stars I’ve worked with up to this point,” he continued  “However, there is only a 2-year age difference with UEE.  This is also a strong point.”

He also mentioned that they had to kiss when they first met for filming, saying, “I ended up kissing UEE for the filming of our first teaser.  As we got closer physically, I feel like we got to get closer mentally, as well.  When you work, you meet some persnickety people, but UEE is making me feel comfortable as not an actress but as a hyung (older brother).”

You can see their chemistry in the premiere of the youth melodrama, ‘High Society,’ on June 8!

[NEWS] UEE calls Hyungsik by the wrong name on air


‘High Society’s UEE and Hyungsik appeared on SBS radio program, ‘Cultwo Show,’ on June 3 and had a hilarious slip-of-the-tongue.

All K-Pop fans know UEE is one of Kwanghee’s ideal types, right?  Well, perhaps there’s some reciprocation going on.  When asked how it was meeting Hyungsik not as singers but as actors, she replied, “Seeing Kwanghee in real life…” and everybody burst into laughter at her mistake.

Perhaps pretending to be offended, Hyungsik asked, “How could you look at me and say Kwanghee?”

The DJs teased her with, “Do you like Kwanghee that much?” and, “Kwanghee must be in your heart,” resulting in an understandably flustered UEE.

Jung Chan Woo said, “What charms does Kwanghee have?”  Poor Hyungsik must be sitting in the shadows by this point Tamaki-mushroom-corner style.  She replied, “Kwanghee is very charming and he’s a good friend.  That is all,” making everyone laugh with her pointed conclusion.

[NEWS] After School’s UEE says ZE:A’s Kwang Hee is Just a Friend


After jokes flew around from program to program, After School’s UEE cleared up the air and said that ZE:A’s Kwang Hee was just a friend.

On June 3, UEE attended the press conference for SBS’ new drama, High Society at the SBS headquarters in Mokdong.

There, UEE was asked about ZE:A’s Kwang Hee, who has previously asked UEE why she changed her number and also to go eat with him on MBC’s Infinity Challenge.

“I’ve known Kwang Hee even before I got to know Hyung Sik and we greeted each other often,” said UEE. “We’ve never eaten together privately, but because he’s very playful, he once asked to eat together by saying, ‘Do you have a man? If you don’t, let’s eat together.’”

“So I joked about him on Running Man, but I think it got misunderstood,” continued UEE. “Kwang Hee is a very charming friend. He’s that kind of friend. But there’s nothing more.”

She then added, “If opportunity allows, I’ll buy him something delicious.”

Hyung Sik, who was also at the press conference joked, “I don′t want to be there when they get food. I don′t want to eat with Kwang Hee.”
