In 2016, I met Lana Wachowski at Mrs. Cho's apartment when she was filming Sense8 season 2 in South Korea. I am a huge fan of her since I was 15. There were so many staffs around her, and they laughed like sitcom laughter effect. Yes, I was like, "Hi, Lana. I am a big fan of you since I was a kid. I think I am the biggest fan in Asia." Jesus. I was like 15-year-old girl.
Lana was so kind and generous. I spent time with her about 20 to 30 minutes. She read my letters and opened the presents. Some gentle handsome man helped with my bags during get these autographs, I didn't know who he was. After I came back home, and realized... he was a famous cinematographer "John Toll". Christ.
By the way... I could not say "Goodbye" to Lana properly. Because that kind of miracle moment will never happen again. More over, I turned my head when she came to me for a photo later. Ridiculous but true.
It was only possible because Doona helped me. One day before, I met Doona for the first time in my life too. I will talk about the story later to you.
I share my treasure and memory of the day with you all.
I wish I could meet you all someday. My inspirations.
Dear @showgirlsthemovie ❤
This is what the Wachowskis said at "The Guru Show" in South Korea in 2013. Korean sub doesn't explain the reference, but I screamed when I heard they said "Push him down the stairs". I could hardly believe my ears. At the prime time talk show in South Korea, the Wachowskis are talking about Showgirls? I was so excited. More over, Andy(Lilly) adds "Like Showgirls" for the hosts to understand. So kind and funny.
I just wanted to share this precious moment with you. Thank you for sharing the valuable & priceless stuff with us. I am a huge fan of Showgirls and Bound.
By the way, Lana & Andy seem to be named one of the main character of Sense8 "Nomi" after "the Nomi". 🌝
2013년 1월. 워쇼스키 선생님들이 <무릎팍 도사>에 출연하시어... 3인자에게 2인자를 "계단에서 밀어 버려요."라고 했을 때 소리 지른 분 여기 붙으세오...... ㅎ
자막에는 나와 있지 않은데 이것은 영화 <쇼걸>을 빗대어 한 농담이고, 한국의 황금 시간대 토크쇼에서 B급 컬트 영화의 내용을 기초로 한 넝ㅋ담을 듣는다는 건 예상조차 못 했었기에 저에겐 넘나 빅-계 모먼트인 것이었습니다. 흑흑. 더구나 "계단에서 밀어 버려요."하고서 이해하지 못 할까 봐 "<쇼걸>에서처럼요."하고 레퍼런스까지 설명해 주는 구 앤디 현 릴리의 정성. 넘나 친절하고 또 웃긴 것. 껄껄. 하... 눈물 좀 닦고.
참, 덧붙이자면, <센스8>의 노미는 <쇼걸>의 주인공 노미 멀론의 이름에서 따온 듯 보여요. 🌝
