Interview on Mood of the Day with Moon Chae-won



On December 8th in at CGV in Apgujeong, Gangnam, Seoul, the Mood of the Day movie-launching event was held. Leading actors Yoo yeon-seok and Moon Chae-won were in attendance, along with director Jo Gyu-jang.

In the movie Mood of the Day, the two meet by chance on the KTX train and then proceed to have a back and forth interaction all night, in this romantic comedy movie. At this movie launch event, there were peculiar chairs that belonged on a KTX setup in, order to match a theme of the movie.

Moon Chae-won plays a hard to approach woman who loved just a single man for 10 years and doesn’t even look at other men. She introduced the character saying “I play the manager of a marketing department for a cosmetics company. She was growing tired of the essentially married life with her boyfriend, after 10 years. So she starts to develop a curiosity for new encounters. She doesn’t know when she will just break loose.”

Moon Chae-won set her character to be like a friend she knows. “She was always the hard one to approach amongst my high school friends. Normally when you make a character you give her a lot of dramatic attributes that you imagine. This character reminded me of a friend I have. I tried to copy her regular way of speaking, her personality ticks, and her facial expressions. But of course I haven’t told any of this to that friend” she said with a laugh.

Mood of the Day’s Moon Chae-won and Yoo Yeon-seok

When talking about Yoo Yeon-seok and how she came to fall for his charm she said “When I first saw him, I thought he was a completely feminine man. But as we started shooting he couldn’t do anything besides make sex jokes. There were a few dirty lines, but then he would follow up with a lewd joke. But the jokes were received really well.”

“To me, Yoo Yeon-seok lightened the atmosphere. When he would do things which would cause me to ask, What is he doing? or Why is he like that? It was really charming.” She said with a laugh. Moon Chae-won continued saying “I found is inappropriate jokes really funny.

Yoo Yeon-seok added “Moon Chae-won performs her lines during the climax of the movie exceptionally well.”

Director Jo Gyu-jang said “The movie will really suck you in. I think the carefully planned changes really make the movie fun.”
