Ryeo Won Takes on First Saeguk Drama

Ryeo Won was supposed to act opposite So Ji Sup and Ji Jin Hee in Cain and Abel this year. But the production was persistently delayed with issues so she decided to give up on that. For her role in Princess Ja Myung Go, Ryeo Won has lowered her salary per episode to just 20 million won. This is in contrast to other actresses who normally commands 30 – 40 million won.

According to someone from Ryeo Won’s management, “Because of the economic crisis and the company’s own difficulties, it’s fine even though her salary now is the same as what she got in 2006 for What Star Did You Come From“. This is despite other actresses who has been pushing for 50 million won recently.

Ryeo Won will be casted as Princess Ja Myung and is a fictional character that will be in conflict with her younger sister, Princess Nangnang played by Park Min Young for the love of Prince Hodong from Goguryeo (Jung Kyung Ho).

Princess Ja Myung Go is scheduled for a February 09 broadcast.

  1. She’s my inspiration! I really respect her for accepting a lower salary; she’s in it for the art, not the fame! And she’s not too thin, why do people harp on that? She looks great! Don’t be jealous!

  2. These are just part of the salary negotiation. Market decides going rate, I mean is there a “rule” that says you have to earn more than you did 2 years ago? Rating is still not “guaranteed” right?

    She’s still making a bundle for someone not acting for too many years. So, no worries πŸ™‚

    Wonder who the “other actresses” are…

  3. I’ve always found her beautiful. But sometimes it just strikes me how thin she is, and that’s when I think that it wouldn’t hurt for her to put on a tiny bit of weight.

  4. Aw, i love this girl ! So glad she’s back ^.^ Not surprising that she’s got thinner, she’s been away from the industry for 2 years anyways πŸ˜› .. can’t expect her to be the same. But she’s still so gorgeous ! ~ yay : )

  5. People like her for her looks and not her acting. I think it’s fine that she lowers her wages because she’s asking for what a low ranked A list actress would ask for and that’s not right.

  6. Have been waiting for her to act!
    I think her acting’s good. She can cry really really well.
    It doesn’t hurt that she’s so pretty πŸ™‚

    I think she lost quite alot of weight because I know she gained some weight after “which star r u from” , from the youtube videos of her advertisements …but now, she probaly lost weight cos of her upcoming show?

  8. Time’s are bad… and she’s getting thinner… maybe from malnutrition. She needs the job; 20 mil or 40 mil πŸ˜›

    But I do like her… she has a sweet face πŸ™‚

  9. I think she’s a decent actress and has talent. In fact, she won the best newcomer blue dragon awards last year for her role in “2 faces of my gf”.
