Gianna Jun declares interest in Takuya Kimura at promotion for 'Last Blood'

16 Comments

Korean actress Gianna Jun, 27, attended a special preview this week with co-star Koyuki, 32, in Shibuya for the Japan premiere of “Blood: The Last Vampire.” Jun, better known as Ji-hyun Jun, changed her name for the release of the movie which was filmed in English.

Based on the Japanese animated film released in 2000, Jun plays a katana-wielding half-human/half-vampire who hunts full-blooded vampires, both to rid the world of them and due to the fact they are her only source of food.

At the premiere, Jun chose SMAP’s Takuya Kimura as a man she would like to star with, saying he is a great actor. Kimura happened to be promoting the release of his own upcoming movie “I Come With The Rain” in Roppongi on Wednesday night, and Koyuki made a sly remark thanking everyone for coming to see their movie and not his.

“Blood: The Last Vampire” (billed as “Last Blood” in Japan) opens in cinemas on Friday.

Jun plays a katana-wielding half-human/half-vampire

I misread this at first as "a katakana-wielding half-human". In the film RaSuTo BuRaDo.

She's still Jeon Ji Hyun to me, and has been since I first became her fan in 2003. :)

"Sly" = "Snide"? Or is it "sly" for hotties?

So this movie is kind of a "Blade" remake? Not that there's anything wrong with that, just asking.

It's neither a ripoff of Blade nor Underworld.

It's a live action adaptation of an anime film from well over 10 years ago.

There was also a series based off of the original animated movie called blood+. Loved em both. Hope this live action adaptation doesn't kill it.

To be more precise, "Blood: The Last Vampire" was released as an anime in 2000. "Blade" was released in 1998. "Underworld" was released in 2003.

Who imitated whom? It's a pretty fair bet that Wesley Snipe's character, based on a Marvel Comics character, is about as far removed from the schoolgirl uniform-wearing female in the Blood anime as you can get. And similarities to "Underworld"? Honestly? Not enough to make a difference.

I just wanna's see Jun Ji-hyun doing high flying wire work, katana in hand, slashing mad Koyuki vampires with a vengeance.

I think she's hot and so is the Japanese chick. As for the movie. I think I'll give it a miss. And who is this Takoyaki Mura guy she wants to star with?
