Best known for her lead role in Boys Before Flowers as the spunky Geum Jan-di, Gu can sing, draw and has published a novel. Now that isn't all, she has even written and directed a short film entitled The Cheerful Caretaker (유쾌한 도우미). Gu who can hold her own on the piano, also wrote the theme song for her short film.

Gu Hye Sun's book is entitled Tango and it is a fiction, based on the memories of her own bittersweet first relationship. The Seoul Art College alumni also illustrated the book cover and the book comes with around 40 of her own illustrations. It was published on March 31, 2009 and she worked on her book while she was in the middle of filming Boys Before Flowers.

Freakin' unbelievable while shooting BOF, she wrote the novel, Tango. o_O
As you know, nearly all the staff of BOF used to sleep 0~2 hrs per night!

I'm actually more interested in checking out her first independent film, "The Cheerful Caretaker (유쾌한 도우미) that she wrote and directed.

She is known among her colleagues for being extremely nice and always smiley to everyone around her however exhausted she is.

I like the fact that she's so soft/mild to others but strict to herself.
Very strong human-being, indeed!

What can I say?
Her Sun Sign & Rising Sign is "Scorpio" (charismatic, devoted to work, professional, versatile, artistic)
and her blood type is "A" (kind to others, being a perfectionist, etc..) ^_^

that illustration also published as the cover album for singer Gummy, on her 4th album.

i say.. she's so much like jandi. warm and hardworking. but, minus the stupid part because she's a smart and multi talented person.

kaiye said...

I bumped into this blog while I was searching for Goo Hye Sun's novel, Tango. Does anyone know where can I buy mandarin version of this book? I really want to read it.


kaiye said...

Ohya, I am a Malaysian. So where can I get that book in Malaysia?

Liz said...

@kaiye: I don't think it's selling in Malaysia. Maybe you can order it online?

kaiye said...

I wish I can but I don't have a visa card or smthg along that line.. I can't pay if I order it online.. plus I never bought anything online and don't really know how..

Btw, is it all in Korean? :( I can't read korean. Do you know is there any translated copies? Otherwise, I will just be wasting my time searching for something that doesn't exist. Hah.. Anyway, thanks for helping. I really want to read it. :( Thanks a lot!:)
