Movie Poster Monday (1-Silver Phoenix)

Hey everyone! So this is my first time doing this meme. It's similar to Matching Actors to Characters, but instead of only naming characters who I think match the actors, I also compile some images and put them together to create a movie poster using my terrible Photoshop skills (if you want to help out, please let me know! :)).

The first book I decided to do was Silver Phoenix. I am currently reading it right now (review will be up this week!), so the characters are fresh in my mind. Also, I love to watch Asian soap operas so I knew a lot of actors/actresses that could match the characters. For our heroine, Ai Ling, I thought Kim So Eun would be a great match and for Cheng Yong, I thought Oh Ji Ho would be a great match. (The graphics are from the dramas, Empress Chun Chu and Chuno).

I thought Kim So Eun (the girl in the movie poster) matched Ai Ling with her innocent and pretty face, but with the sense of confidence. At first, I thought the picture in the top left corner was too regal to be Ai Ling. But I thought the contrast served well between the fancy dressed Ai Ling to the girl in pastoral clothes, fighting for her father's disappearance. I also thought Oh Ji Ho was a good match for Chen Yong, even though the actor is quiet old. Oh Ji Ho has a foreign, American look in his features, which make up the important characteristic of Chen Yong. Also, I've seen his acting before and I know he can pull out the confident, but weak in the inside, man.

So here's the movie poster! Again, I am really sorry if you are disappointed. I have little to no Photoshop experience, so if you want to contribute (or use this meme) please feel free to do so!


  1. Ooh, I like it! I wish this novel was a movie...that would totally rock. :)

  2. what an honor! i love it too!

  3. Thank you so much! I enjoyed your debut and cannot wait for the sequel!

  4. Oooh, I love your movie poster! I have this book in my TBR pile and can't wait to read it. :)

  5. haha saw your comment and ran over to check it out. And I'm LOL-ing at the Silver Phoenix = Chuno. I can see Oh Ji Ho as Chen Yong, but, between you and me, I'd take Jang Hyuk over Oh Ji Ho anytime, any day. I was thinking of casting Silver Phoenix too, but with wuxia star actors. I've just been lazy going about it.. Anyhow, love your casting! =D

  6. ooo, good poster. i still have to read the book but i can see that there's adventure there.


Comments are appreciated!
