News Bits: 4/1/11 Edition

I thought about ways to pull off an April Fool’s prank since, well, it’s April Fool’s. Then I thought about pulling my site down for the day – but I couldn’t because I already posted something about Kim So Yeon. Then I thought about how much I was thinking about this and how tiring it was to continually write something interesting and (hopefully) have people coming back for more. And then I thought about how tired I was in general (because if you haven’t noticed, I’m lagging behind in recaps) and how much I had to keep my blog up to date. And then I thought about how much time I spend on this blog and so I realized that I don’t want to pull a prank. Rather, I would like to formally announce my retirement.

After this post (or today’s posts), I will no longer be updating ‘Kaede+Jun’ – focusing solely on the other aspects of my life that require immediate attention. I’m sorry to those who have followed and read my blog, and I’m sure those who never knew it existed won’t be sorry at all.

I guess you could say I’m going to military duty – but with no due-back date and with no management company to keep my memory alive.

  • Lee Jong Suk and Kim Sa Rang posted up a picture of the two of them canoodling. Kinda. Sorta. The picture was taken during the last day of filming for Secret Garden and they look quite sweet together, unlike their on-screen personas who were fighting over one guy. In fact, they look like siblings. In fact, it’s really sweet.
  • Kim Sung Oh said that he felt sorry for his Secret Member costar Hyun Bin for being in the marines. Imagine the following quote in Kim Sung Oh’s trademark secretary voice:

“I feel nothing but sympathy for him. Do girls look at that and think that he looks cool? I felt sorry…As his personal assistant, I should pay him a visit…I’m also thinking of  writing him a consolatory letter…Before he went to the military, I asked Hyun Bin,’Why did you make that decision?’ Seeing the pictures, it seems like he himself is regretting it. However, the picture of him holding the gun was cool.”


  • Clazziquai’s Alex made a prank on April Fool’s by tweeting: “I was recording the album…however the album…was thrown out.” It’s so simple it’s funny! Fans reacted with panic and wailing, until they realized it was all a prank.
  • Yoon Eun Hye is confirmed-confirmed for Lie to Me! See the pic of the script and actress Choi Su A‘s tweet here.
  • Miss Jang Geun Suk? Yeah – so do I:

  • And for those who believed my little news bit intro – APRIL FOOL’S!!!!!

    • wait JGS in ANAN??!!!…as in THE Anan that had almost nude pics of Matsumto Jun, Yamapi and Mukai Osamu??….Ok I need to get my hands on this edition some how

  1. OMG!! I really believed you were ending your blog! Good Job! You fooled me. Phew! Thank goodness it was a joke! LOL
    OK I just have to say if it weren’t for you I would have never started watching My Queen. It is cracktastic!!! Thank You!!!!
    I realized later that it isn’t fully subbed but I’m a trooper and I’m going to watch without subs. I don’t understand or speak a lick of mandarin, but I have to finish My Queen. Wish me luck! 😉

  2. After this post (or today’s posts), I will no longer be updating ‘Kaede+Jun’ – focusing solely on the other aspects of my life that require immediate attention.
    As long as your immediate attention does not involve Jung Kyu Woon, I am OK with it. 😛

    Actually, I did fall for your prank because the reason mentionned above makes complete sense to me. 🙂 Thus I will continue to visit your blog very regularly then.

    Although you may be late on your recaps (Sign anyone? :D), this evening I enjoyed a rather “ancient” one of yours yet again (must have read it a dozen times already, giggling each time): Dr Champ ep 13 on dramabeans. Actually I felt like seeing my (last?) drama again, especially ep 15, my fave, which had provided me with such sweet memories. *sigh*

  3. @everyone –

    lol – i’m just glad i managed to trick some of you!

    @lettle – good luck watching it without subs! i’m not even that brave enough and thus afraid of what will happen when no more subs are available!

    @denali – dammit! you found me out! i was totally gonna pay more attn to jung gyu woon in secret – and don’t make me go craving for dr. c! i. must. move. on!

  4. i was actually sad for a second, kaedejun! but then it hit me that “maybe this is her april fool prank…” and phew, boy am i glad to be right!

    i’m still reading so that’s one reader still on the wagon 😉
