Another Korean artist suicide.
Yu Ju (real name Lee Hye Rin) was a singer and a former racing model. She committed suicide a few days ago due to depression at the age of 25. She was once part of the girl group SSEN back in 2008 but after one album, they never got any further. Kind of a shame really – I wonder if these celebs know that they become more famous after their death than before. I have never heard of her until today. This is a horrible trend…
Sungkyunkwan Scandal has been surrounded with rumors of an extension, but it’s most likely not going to happen. After all, Micky Yoochun is already suffering between shoots and his tour with JYJ. The production company has expressed interest and complete support for an extension, saying they have many more stories to tell. (I’m liking the current pace though, although after seeing episode 16 I can see maybe an additional 2-4 episodes max?) The problem is getting the broadcaster and the actors to agree, which is unlikely. It’s also not really a drama that’s got chart topping ratings – having only reached the mid-teens.
Kim Soo Hyun (Giant, Will It Snow for Christmas?) has been cast for the Bae Yong Joon- JYP joint project drama Dream High. He will be the main character, a guy whose dream is to own a farm but because of a girl (sigh****) he goes to an art school and finds his inner musical talent (grr…I don’t know why but hearing his character synopsis makes me angry and think of “High School Musical”). There were rumors that Taecyeon and Eun Jung of T-ARA would join, and if they did I’d be totally on board. I love Eun Jung – she’s got great acting chops for someone her age and for being a singing artist.
Kim Hyun Joong and Yoon Eun Hye collaborate again for the Fall line of Basic House. These pictures make me so happy and make me fall in love with Yoon Eun Hye all over again. (I’m in a trial separation mode with her right now, as I’m pissed off that she’s doing more modeling than acting. Her upcoming projects won’t be out until perhaps next year still.)
Aaaaaand a new trailer for Mary Stayed Out All Night!
