Lee Young-Ae is back. Filipinos might know her better as Dae Jang Geum, her character in “Jewel in the Palace”. It was a watershed moment for Philippine TV as the first Korean teleserye that captured the hearts of Filipinos everywhere, and thus started a trend that continues to this day. After the tremendous success of this series, Young Ae chose to step back from the limelight, but this year she is returning to a new drama, which has caused much excitement in the entertainment world and among her multitude of fans. Along with her acting comeback, she has become the ambassador of Hurom Slow Juicer. It could not have been a more perfect fit.
“I’ve used Hurom for long time and I feel better and healthier than before,” declares Young-Ae. “There are two ways to make a juice, blending and slow squeezing. To get more nutrition, I love to use Hurom’s slow-squeezing method. Because when you squeeze ingredients slowly, it maximizes nutrition.” With her new production currently underway, she’s definitely going to need it. Young-Ae is starring in Saimdang, the Herstory”, a historical drama that will flit back and forth between present and the past. She plays the titular character Saimdang, who was a poet and artist in the Joseon dynasty as well as another character, a modern-day historian who investigates the life of Saimdang. It is set to air in Korea in October 2016.
When she retired from showbiz a decade ago, she concentrated on home life. Being a health conscious mom, she has extended this to her household. “I make fruit and veggie juice with Hurom for myself and my family. My kids don’t like fruit and vegetable,” she admits, which is a common problem all parents share. “But if I make fruit and veggie juice with Hurom, they love it. This is my secret to make them to eat fruit and veggies.” In a commercial that aired on Korean TV, Young Ae is shown juicing apples and carrots on a Hurom juicer for her son, and he drinks it up happily, none the wiser that it’s packed with nutrition. In other ads she is seen holding a juicing party with friends and another one, where she pours her fresh juice in bottles and takes them to work. “I make different juices every day,” she says referring to Hurom recipe book. “But my mom loves to make soy noodle with the Hurom slow juicer.”
Hurom is more than just a juicer. Depending on the model, there are many preparations you can do with Hurom such as almond milk, and yes, like Young Ae’s mother, you can even make fresh noodles. The third (3rd) generation’s 2016 New Hurom HAA-Series even has an attachment where you can make healthy pure fruit sherbets and ice cream.
Lee Young-Ae has one of the most beautiful and ageless faces in Korea. She is as well known for her beauty as she is for her charity. Recently, she donated $50,000 to the earthquake victims in Ecuador and also paid for a Vietnamese child’s brain tumor surgery. Truly beautiful inside and out, she is also a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) ambassador.
With all of this activity and her foray back into the business, how does she keep healthy and fit? “Drinking Hurom juice, that’s my health secret,” she says with a smile.
