News Bits: 5/23/11 Edition

I’m caught up on Lie To Me! I’m caught up! Oh the little things make me so happy!

I’m finally up to episode 4 (and episode 5-6 airs this week), and I have to say I am so in love with Sung Joon. I don’t mean that I want him with Yoon Eun Hye (although the two of them are more fun to watch because they’re playful around each other. On the other hand, her character is perpetually afraid of Kang Ji Hwan’s.), but he’s just awesome. From his awesome reunion scene with his aunt at the restaurant, to his mock fight with his brother at their parents’ grave site, to how he was able to orchestrate the entire China-representative deal without his brother knowing – Sung Joon is awesome!

I love the above still, when Kang Ji Hwan finally says, “Honey – I’m here!” in the same way that she did it.

Now that Kang Ji Hwan has proposed marriage to Yoon Eun Hye at the end of episode 4 (as it is now advantageous to him), the two of them are going to have plenty of couple pics as the two of them act married and go on a fake honeymoon. Such as the one below:

He is also not above wearing a tracksuit that’s supposedly reminiscent of Secret Garden. Hyun Bin’s tacky sparkles apparently sparked a new trend in “fashionable tracksuits,” and so Kang Ji Hwan’s version is neon colors. Heck – at least both actors were able to pull these looks off.

  • For those watching Youthful Beauty, here’s a look at a kiss between the leads Daniel Choi and Jang Nara. I don’t know if you would be saying “FINALLY!” or “SQUEE!” but there you have it!

  • Jung Da Bin marries in spirit. The actress of Attic Cat committed suicide four years ago was married in spirit to a man who died in 2002, Moon Jae Sung. He died of unknown causes and was a business major in college. The two families have actually known each other for a while, and though the two kids didn’t know each other, the families decided this would be the best way to comfort their souls by marrying the two singletons in heaven. I wonder what the Scheduler would have thought of that… I’m a little put off by this though – I mean, though it’s sad that Jung and Moon died unmarried, I’d feel uneasy if my mother decided to marry me off when I’m in the afterlife.
  • Shin Se Kyung and Jang Hyuk have been cast in a new drama called Tree With Deep Roots, a historical drama from the people who made Queen Seon Deok. The story is about King Sejong as he tries to create the Korean alphabet amidst a suspicious murder. The king is played by Han Seok Kyu, and Shin Se Kyung will play a court lady who helps him with the alphabet. Of course, she gets caught in the middle between the king and Jang Hyuk’s character, a former slave turned soldier. Jang’s character protects the king, but he views the king as his enemy. Angst ensues.
  • New still of Jung Yong Hwa! And he’s trying to be a cold, arrogant guy in the still, by the way.

  1. Can I just say that I was pleasantly surprised with your #2 pic, with YEH and KJH at noraebang? It’s my 1st time ever where I can feel some real vulnerable side to him. I don’t know if this has to do with his posture, his eyes looking down or what. In fact, this very good actor often appeared as a cold person, no matter how silly / goofy or tender his character may be. A cold person wearing a mask and hiding behind a cold façade. Thus it feels like I have finally seen a glimpse of his persona. Yes, from a simple still. But sometimes they speak more than 1,000 words. 🙂

  2. Omo, kaedejun! You cracked me up at the JYH comment. I’ve seen his pics in other kdrama sites but this comment of yours takes the cake:

    “And he’s trying to be a cold, arrogant guy in the still, by the way.”

    Did I say I love you and your ozamness?
