    Actress Kim Nam-joo, the epitome of a sophisticated, urban career woman in the 1990s, is enjoying renewed popularity after she returned to TV last month with MBC TV drama “My Wife is a Superwoman”. Her last TV appearance was eight years ago in 2001 with the hugely popular TV series “Her House”.

    “My Wife is a Superwoman” is a comedy drama that depicts the life of housewives who devote their entire lives to their husbands’ success. Kim showed a strong attachment to the character she plays with much composure and ease.

    “Almost every wife and mother would relate to the character I’m playing. The character is completely different to roles that I used to play, but she’s actually like me in real life. Now I am a wife and a mother, and the situation in the drama really fits my actual life”, said Kim.

    Kim’s decision to choose this soap opera was aided by her husband, actor Kim Seung-woo. “Seung-woo read the script first and recommended it to me. It suits me well in many ways, and I think he liked it more because it is a light and funny drama that can make people laugh despite the current recession”, said Kim.

    “After living as a full-time housewife for several years, I realized that love is the most important thing in marriage, and the most precious thing in the family is the good health of its members”, said Kim.

    The natural aging process can be lethal to actresses. But Kim says, “It’s better now because I don’t have to diet constantly like I used to do in my twenties”. Kim added that she is happy to be back and is still passionate about acting. Although it is difficult to leave her two children at home in order to come to work, she hopes they will be proud of their working mom in the future.

    According to Hancinema news ~ �My Wife is a Superwoman 2″:

    link here

    �Actor and Actress OH JI-HO and KIM NAM-JOO said that if there were to be �My Wife is a Superwoman 2″ then they would definitely try to be part of it!

    The drama has been very loved and the two have been at the press meeting for the drama.

    If there were to be a season 2 for the drama, they both would love to be back but with the same people because with new people, it would definitely be like a different family.�

    Celebrities do Ralph Lauren

    You can’t go wrong with the classic lines of Ralph Lauren.

    The U.S. designer has opened a flagship store in Shinsa-dong on May 21st and seasoned (i.e. older) stars came out to show their support. KIM NAM-JOO (above), Ha Jung-woo, Kim Sung-soo, Lee Yeo-won, Kim Hye-soo, Ko So-young, Kwon Sang-woo (without wife, Son Tae-young) and LEE HYE-YOUNG were spotted at the event.

    Ha Jung-woo looks uncomfortable in the green shirt and black tie.

    Kim Sung-soo may be eye-candy but his psychedelic tie is not.

    Lee Yeo-won stays neutral and classy. Like we said, can’t go wrong with RL.

    Kim Hye-soo opts for a flapper style dress, reminiscent of her role in “Modern Boy”

    Ko So-young is still around? The satin purple dress fits her like a glove….gorgeous

    Kwon Sang-woo is trying to “tea us” with his knit tie. But we have lost interest long ago. BTW, where is the wifey?

    Lee Hye-young, also back in a drama with Kim Nam-joo (see above), keeps it conservative and ajumma-like in a gold.

    Korean actress Kim Nam-joo has been awarded “Actor of the Year” by Korea’s Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, according to a press release by her agency Wellmade Star M on Wednesday.

    The actress received official commendation from the government at the “2009 Motion Pictures Broadcasting Grand Prix Ceremony”, held at Seoul’s Press Center Wednesday afternoon. She was handed the award by Yu In-chon, a Korean veteran actor who became the head of the Ministry in 2008.

    According to the event’s organizing committee, Kim was selected as the winner for her successful comeback in the MBC TV series “Queen of Housewives” (”My Wife is a Superwoman”) this year, where she portrayed a modern Korean housewife through her role as Cheon Ji-ae. The character is considered to have created a new trend among married women in terms of confidence, fashion and makeup.

    “I am truly grateful for all the love I received this year”, the actress was quoted as saying. She explained that she was “very scared at first” because the role required a huge transformation on her part and it was her first acting job in a long time [since marrying actor Kim Seung-woo in 2005 and giving birth to a daughter].

    She went on to say, “I think 2009 was an unforgettable year for not only myself but also for my family”, referring the dual success of “My Wife is a Superwoman” and KBS2 TV series “IRIS”, a blockbuster drama which starred her husband Kim Seung-woo.

    “My Wife is a Superwoman”, about a 30-something housewife who struggles to help her husband succeed, was a smash hit earlier this year, topping Korea’s television ratings charts for three consecutive weeks.

    Kim Seung-woo Hosts KBS’s New Talk Show

    Actress Kim Nam-joo will appear as the first guest on the premiere of her husband’s first talk show on KBS 2TV.

    The talk show, the successor to ”Roundtable Plus” and entitled “Seungseungganggu” (which means “continuing to thrive” in Korean), will begin airing on February 2, 2010 at 11:05 P.M. according to a statement made by KBS on January 18th.

    During the first show of “Seungseungganggu,” actor Kim Seung-woo will interview his wife Kim Nam-Joo, who starred in the drama “My Wife is a Superwoman,” as his first guest.

    According to KBS, this show will be the first in which a host invites his wife to his own talk show as a guest. However, they said the pair will meet and share conversation based on their relationship as host and guest–not their personal relationship.

    “Seungseungganggu” will consist of two parts: one is the celebrities’ interviews, and the other is “A Very Special Promise-Let’s Meet,” which is a type of project aimed at keeping promises made between the host and viewers.

    During “A Very Special Promise-Let’s Meet” segment, the host and selected fans will carry out their respective promises. First, the host will announce the place, the date and time, and the promise. The viewers can also respond with their own promises or comments about the host’s promise. Fans who are picked based on their comments can participate in the show at the chosen place and time.

    Kim Seung-woo said, “As a rookie host, I will do my best to make the show bring out deep and honest conversation from the guest celebrities.”
