News Bits: 5/15/11 Edition

Oh wow – I have seriously not done this for a while. And by “a while” I mean 5 days. That’s a long time…

Denali1975 beat me to it, but yes – I’m recapping Romance Town! And I have to say – can Wednesday come any sooner?! I’m so excited to be recapping this – I’m glad I listened to all of you. 😀

Let us all spazz over Jung Gyu Woon together, yeah?!

But on to the news…

Above is the official poster for Ripley, featuring Lee Da Hae, Micky Yoochun, Kim Seung Woo, and Kang Hye Jung. Sick, no? But I think it’s quite interesting and definitely shows off the darker tone this drama will take. If only everyone else would stop smiling; only Lee Da Hae seems to be selling the whole “dark, twisted melodrama” feel.

  • Jung’s Romance Town costar Min Hyo Rin posed for a shoot showing off her sexy side. The shoot was for banila.conow I bet if she shows this side of her to Kim Min Joon, he’ll be on his knees begging to sleep with her. (I don’t know about marrying – he seems to be the playboy type. For now.) But in regards to the drama too, it’s said that Sung Yuri is going to have quite the drinking scene with her father in an upcoming episode. (I think the article says she got tricked by the producers into drinking real soju for the scene – although anyone who can clarify that point – please do! I’m still on a learning curve here…)

  • Kim So Yeon has been selected as a model for a Chinese cosmetics brand S’CHE, which is under WJ Cosmetics. She was selected for her popularity in China, and for her “clean and lovely” image. Gosh! I’m glad she’s becoming more and more a familiar face for the Hallyu market. She may have been before, but I don’t think her profile was this high before.

  • Jeon Ji Hyun arrived at Cannes to promote her film Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. This is a photo of a photo of a screen showing Jeon walking down the red carpet. She’s rocking that dress. If I find a better one, I’ll upload it.

  • SG Wannabe member Kim Yong Jun was found guilty of a hit-and-run accident and sentenced to 8 months in prison, 2 years of probation, and 80 hours of community service on May 13. (Honestly – if only Lindsay Lohan could get that kind of severe punishment for “misdemeanors”…) For him, he had crossed the center line in the road and hit an SUV. He fled from the scene, but surrendered a few hours later. His victims required treatment for two weeks. He’s just another one, like actresses Kim Ji Soo (King Geunchogo) and Han Ye Seul, and actor Kwon Sang Woo.

  1. that poster for Ripley is indeed sick. hopefully the drama is just as good. if it’s too over-the-top makjang, i won’t be watching long…

  2. kim so yeon is perfect beautiful. She is beautiful and charming actress in Asian. All of her drama sand movies are the best. I like her in all about eve.

  3. I am sorry, Kaedejun. I realized a tad too late that it should not have been my call to spoil your surprise.


    Kim So Yeon looks often stunning on her pics and she’s one heck of an actress. Yet, looking back on Dr Champ, I can’t help but think, how in the world could she not have any more physical chemistry with Jung Kyu Woon or Park Shi Hoo, for that matter? At least, not in my eyes, did she appear to be comfortable with skinship.
