    Translation:

    Han Min Woo (18 years old, 28 years old / A sensitive webtoon cartoonist who lives without knowing his scars)
    "I'm not the type of person you think I am"

    Handsome and romantic outer appearance, webtoon writer who is gaining popularity with his well-made webtoons
    0.1cm beneath that surface, there is Min Woo, who looks like he will crumble even if it is just for a short while. One can see his sensitive response towards just one sound made by the second hand on a watch, a webtoon writer who has cut off contact with the outside world of his own accord and is living in his own world. The only thing which understands that was only his drawings. The webtoons he draws on his tablet in his dark studio were his everything. The mystery thriller webtoons which he created in that way became a hot issue and he started receiving attention as an up-and-coming rookie webtoon writer. After ending his webtoon series, the number of readers waiting for Writer Han Min Woo's next piece of work increased day by day. But on a certain day, while arranging his table, he coincidentally discovered a desktop calendar from long ago and gained inspiration thereafter and started his new series titled "December 8th".

    "It is indeed a calendar I had used... I can't remember anything about it"
    The first start to the webtoon was smooth-sailing. Although it was of the romance genre which he wouldn't have imagined previously, the story flowed easier than he thought it would. As if it was a story which he had already known of. On a particular day, although Min Woo came to find out that the calendar which inspired him was the one he had himself used back in 2003, he was thrown into confusion because there were almost no memories left of that time. Moreover, the contents of the webtoon moving forward no longer came to him, and whenever he wanted to recall the story, migraines and nausea would overcome him. Min Woo went to see a psychologist and heard from the doctor that the answer is perhaps in the lost memories within the calendar...

    2003, the memories from autumn to winter of that year has disappeared...
    Just like that on a certain day, Min Woo came across a comment which read "The contents of this webtoon is a true story, I know everything." While looking into the ID "Fire Warrior" which wrote that comment, he saw a "Ho Su High School" nametag and was led by that to go in search of that school.

    He added that he was a bit shy and didn’t make a lot of female friends.

    “I studied hard and had a very proper school life, but if I could go back, I want to meet as many friends of the opposite sex as possible,” added Changmin, making everyone laugh.

    He continued, “I never dated when I was a student, so I was able to experience a very fresh romance through the drama that I wasn’t able to during my school years. It was very satisfying.”

    [15.03.2014] Moon Gayoung Chooses 'Mimi' as Her Number One Character


    Starting her acting career as a child, Mun Ka Young finally landed a lead role as ‘Mimi’ in Mnet’s dramaMimi in seven years.

    Despite the fact that it was her first drama as the lead actress, there was no controversy surrounding her acting skills throughout the drama. Mun Ka Young was Mimi, and Mimi was Mun Ka Young.
    [​IMG]
    “I tried to have similar looks to the character in the original version, movie M. I watched the original one, starred by Lee Yeon Hee sunbaenim, and tried to keep her pure, innocent look but added in sassy traits that are seen in a high school girl. It was easier to act since I’m actually in high school now.”

    Acting out the role of ‘first love’ in the drama, Mun Ka Young had the pure looks to carry on the title of ‘the country’s first love,’ following miss A’s Suzy.

    Mun Ka Young waved off the compliment and said, “The country’s first love? No way. I can’t dare be that. I can’t have such groundless confidence. If anyone says that, it’s thanks to the director made me look pretty in the scenes. I was really happy to see that I came out pretty after watching the first episode.”
    [​IMG]
    ‘Mimi’ is a character who suffers from an unknown illness and dies due to an incident,
    but lingers around her first love even after death.

    Coincidentally, Mun Ka Young has taken on ghost roles three times in a row.

    Being amazed herself, she said, “I acted as a ghost in the film The Webtoon and in drama Who Are You. But this was my first time acting out a ghost who also has a bright side (laughter). It was fun since each ghost has its own characteristic. But it was tough to wear the same clothes unfit for the weather. Mimi was filmed during winter time, but I had to wear a thin cardigan and a dress throughout filming. I was jealous to see [Max] Changmin oppa dressed in warm clothes.”

    Another reason that Mun Ka Young received the spotlight was
    because she acted opposite top idol group TVXQ’s Max Changmin.

    Having filmed the kiss scene one the first day of filming, the two have become close partners.

    “He is really famous, as you know. I was worried in the beginning, because there is a big age gap and I’ve heard that he doesn’t talk a lot, and has so many fans,” said the actress. “But in person, he was a really mature sunbae who takes care of those around him. I think the fans also just think I’m cute since I’m eight years younger than him. They showed a lot of support for the drama, which also gave me energy. The kiss scene also came out really pretty, and became oppa [Max Changmin] and my favorite scene.”

    Choosing ‘Mimi’ as her number one character so far, Mun Ka Young said, “I filmed by traveling back and forth between Busan and Incheon. But it was not tiring at all. I enjoyed it so much that I told my manager oppa I want to film everyday, but he seemed to be tired (laughter). The drama taught me so many things. I learned to enjoy shaping a character and it also gave me the opportunity take on diverse characters in the future. I would like to meet many people as an actress now, not a child actress.”

    On February 17th, the production team of Mnet drama "Mimi" announced, "Drama 「Mimi」,prior to the release of it's first episode have already received attention of many people abroad."

    The place that reactions could directly be seen is the online Youtube channel. First, the drama teaser was released, then teaser 2, behind the scenes video, and so on. After the release of these videos, there were massive responses and the videos went up to over 40K views.

    Especially the comments posted on the videos have comments in various languages, such as Korean, English, Chinese, Thai, and Spanish.

    Not only this but the "Mimi" preview DVD, scheduled to be released on March in Japan reached over 1K reservations just for prior reservation. The DVD consists of extra features such as behind the scenes, but the actual DVD of the drama is not included.

    This Mnet drama, "Mimi", which will portray a nostalgic feel of a spring-like first love will be aired on February 21st at 11PM.

    [trans] Changmin on filming Mimi via @mug_ping

    Q: thoughts on filming Mimi.

    Changmin: The filming started from late autumn last year and continued till February this year. Compared to what I had anticipated, the filming in the cold weather and the filming schedule was sporadic, and my colleague actors and the staff all worked hard. I watched the preview trailer, the scenes came out really prettily. Thank you to the editing staff and the director. I am thinking of wanting to personally watch it on broadcast.

    Q: incidents which occurred during filming.

    Changmin: In the cold weather, the sprinkler truck came and sprinkled water. It was really much colder than I thought, and at the moments when the water sprayed out, although they were evidently water drops, when I was using the umbrella or when I got sprayed, at the moment when the water hit me, I froze and I got hit by the water like a hailstorm. If you look at that particular scene, although it will be funny with me drenched by the icy water, it was a sad filming episode.

    [trans] "Mimi" director, Song Chang Soo, "Max Changmin? Someone who has a lot of pain inside of him"

    Director: I was really nervous before meeting Max Changmin. The role of Minwoo whom Max Changmin played was a character which needed emphasis on his inner side. Therefore, I had to make a judgment on what kind of person Max Changmin really was. When I first met with Max Changmin, instead of reading (script-reading), we spoke a lot about personal matters instead. We had a conversation for 4 hours and I thought, "So he is someone who carries a lot of pain within his heart". Because the point about him carrying pain is very similar to Minwoo, to be frank, I was happy. Especially for Minwoo, there are many scenes where he has to act out feelings of him crying. Max Changmin finished almost all of those scenes with no NGs. Because we had communicated a lot during the script reading phase, he was able to digest everything with ease.

    140220 Changmin, Ga Young & Shin Hyeon Bin Exclusive Interview with 娱乐星天地



    MaxChangminWorld

    [Trans] #Mimi interview for Chinese show 娱乐星天地 by mug_ping

    Commentary: in the show, Minwoo is caught between 2 women, but outside of the drama, Changmin picked both women.

    Changmin: Please... this type (of questions)... for me, both of these ladies are close to my ideal type. Both Ga Young-ssi and Hyun Bin-ssi, if I really say it this way, it seems like greed.. but (I choose) both..

    Commentary: but being greedy will evidently result in an unhappy ending, and being rejected will seem to be inevitable.

    Hyun Bin: If I really met someone like Minwoo in real life... (captions: I'm not sure I will like him like Eun Hae (her character in the drama)
    (*the Chinese subtitles and what they are saying in Korean do not match exactly.. the video editing =.=")

    Ga Young: just like what Hyun Bin unnie said, I'm also similar.

    Captions on Changmin: so awkward.

    Commentary: after being mercilessly rejected by both women, Changmin had to salvage some pride for himself.

    Changmin: it seems like my views were wrong. My ideal type isn't here, but is somewhere out there. (LOL CHAMIII AH)

    [trans] Changmin will sing a remake song for the Mimi OST!!!

    #Mimi Max Changmin is due to give a guitar serenade, "Picturesque"

    Max Changmin chose "I Only Have to Erase You From My Sadness", a song found in Lee Hyun Woo's 1st album, as his serenade song and the theme song for the love between Max Changmin and Moon Ga Young. The version of this song which will appear in the drama will be a remake song sung personally by Max Changmin, and is also scheduled to be recorded in the OST which will be released for sale later.

    The production staff of Mimi said, "For the scene where Max Changmin sings while playing the guitar, and the scene where he sings to serenade Moon Ga Young, the staff were all lost in and admiring his performance. Just like how sweet Max Changmin's serenade is, please also look out for the fresh heart-fluttering appearances of both of them through the first broadcast."
