News Bits: 6/1/10 Edition

Lee Min Ho and Han Ji Hye pair up for Bang Bang’s summer line of clothing. My favorite picture is the two of them holding hands, heads tilted to the same side. Hee!

Gumiho’s Revenge is now called Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child. There will be greater emphasis on the gumiho’s half-human daughter, which will be played by mini-Han Hyo Joo, Kim Yoo Jung. Kim has been Han Hyo Joo’s younger self in the dramas Iljimae and Dong Yi. This drama is setting itself apart from the Hong Sisters’ version by being a historical sageuk. It will focus on the gumiho-mother, played by Han Eun Jung, who has to endure ten years of harsh living in order to become human. Her husband breaks their marriage before the ten year mark, and so Han Eun Jung’s character is forced to take her daughter and run away to another village. Young star Seo Shin Ae (Thank You, High Kick Through the Roof) will also appear as the daughter of a rich family who befriends Kim Yoo Jung.

In other casting news: Oh Ji Ho, fresh off of Chuno, will be starring in a 3D sci-fi film as Ha Ji Won‘s boyfriend. The film, called “Sector 7,” has a crew on a ship battling a sea monster. Totally 3D material. Click here for MAJOR spoilerage on the film. (His management agency claims that they’re still looking into the role – albeit favorably – so it’s not confirmed yet…but I’d take it as he already has.)

Park Shi Hoo was spotted (solo) at the premiere of the film “Bang Ja Chronicles.” The film – which is another take on the classic Mong Ryong – Chun Hyang story – is pretty racy. (What else to expect from the director who also made Untold Scandal?)

YES! Kahi will be the one out of After School to release the solo album! Yes! My wish came true!!!!!

And finally, We Got Married will now feature 2PM’s Nichkhun and f(x)’s Victoria as their newly “married” couple. It will be a first to feature foreigners on the show, since Nichkhun is Thai and Chinese, and Victoria is Chinese. Cute couple or no?
