Public celebrity couple SG Wannabe member Kim Yongjoon and group ‘Sugar’s actress Hwang Jungeum is up for discussion as one of the new couples in ‘We Got Married.’
Actress Heo Yi Jae, casted together with Big Bang TOP and SeungRi for new Korea-Japan collaboration drama
Actress Heo Yi Jae has been casted as the main female character to an upcoming drama collaboration between Korea and Japan. And she acting opposite Big Bang TOP and SeungRi in the tele-cinema ‘My 19-year-old’.
Park Chan-wook’s latest work “Thirst,’’ like other great movies, makes you forget you’re watching one, and you won’t be able to stop it from shaking up every cell in your body unless you dart for the exit. Park-brand films are undoubtedly an acquired taste, and this vampire-priest story, slated to compete in Cannes next month, is certainly not for those with weak stomachs. Nor is it, despite being replete with tasteful humor only Song Kang-ho (“Secret Sunshine’’) can pull off and being the first South Korean film to be co-produced by a major Hollywood studio, for those seeking light-hearted entertainment.
The two actors are featured in kpop singer Kim Hyung-joong’s rather hyped music video; the song is his new single “Today’s Fortune” [오늘의 운세]. The video itself is somewhat standard kpop ballad fare; the story is told post-breakup, with flashbacks that point to a happier time when the couple was in love.
Lee Da-hae last acted in the large-scale MBC drama East of Eden, although she caused something of a stir when she dropped out early citing dissatisfaction with her character and was subsequently written out of the series. She spent some time abroad on vacation, and hasn’t yet picked a follow-up project. After the disappointing drama series Robbers and the cute but forgettable Hello Miss, I hope she picks a project better suited to her talents, which are many, but which have unfortunately been overshadowed by mediocre projects or characters.
Meanwhile, Baek Sung-hyun, a former child actor, is one of those up-and-comers to keep an eye on (in my opinion). He acted in dramas like Damo and Stairway to Heaven when he was in his early teens, and is now transitioning to more adult roles. He was more recently in the Kim Su-ro comedy film (alongside other up-and-comers Lee Min-ho and Park Bo-young) Our High School E.T., and will soon be seen on KBS’s new romantic comedy series Just Looking (aka That Fool aka the former Six Months), which stars Kim Ah-joong and Hwang Jung-min.
