News Bits: 9/2/10 Edition

Bae Soo Bin is poised to become a big star in Japan. Or at least trying to. His previous dramas Shining Inheritance and Dong Yi have been shown in Japan, thus making his face more visible to Japanese viewers. Now, Angel’s Temptation is also going to start airing in November. While that drama is not the greatest, it is his leading role. Wonder if he’ll go hold a fan meeting in Japan some time this year…

Bad news for Playful Kiss and Sungkyunkwan Scandal– both shows, which star idol singers Kim Hyun Joong and Micky Yoochun respectively, premiered with incredibly lower-than-expected ratings. Playful Kiss garnered a 3.5% while Sungkyunkwan Scandal got 6.3%. They were going up against tough competition. Dong Yi and Baker King Kim Tak Gu still managed to get the top spot, while My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and I Am Legend managed to hold their place in second. (Note: I don’t mean second in overall ratings ranking. I mean in terms of the drama line up, Dong Yi would be first, I Am Legend would be second, and Sungkyunkwan Scandal would be third, even if they’re real ranking is more like 1st, 9th, and below-9th.)

But Kim Hyun Joong has nothing to fear! His face will be everywhere soon! Following his agency head Bae Yong Joon’s footsteps, Kim will be the new face of THEFACESHOP, a cosmetics brand.

Daemul finally started filming, after a delay in production and a few casting scares along the way. They released some photo stills of Go Hyun Jung as the first female president, Cha In Pyo as the politician she will butt heads with, and Kwon Sang Woo, whose gigolo role has sort of been transformed into a lawyer who uses Go for his revenge. His role is kinda weird and funky based on descriptions… so we’ll see? If he’s going to pull a Seo In Woo though… he better have another think coming…

Lee Soo Young also stars.
