News Bits: 8/16/11 Edition

Why hello Han Ye Seul! Hope L.A. weather is working for ya!

Funny ’cause… her mom arrived in Seoul. I just want to say – her case has been shockingly addicting for the Korean entertainment world, and as far as I know, unprecedented. I want to stop reporting about her, but I can’t. It’s like crack. I just want to know what happens next!

Although, it looks like they’re just going to kill her off.

  • Sung Yuri is adorable when she says, “Everyone became a top star after working with me. Because they met me, they became a top star, it was all because of me.” It’s partially true – she’s made dramas with Hyun Bin (Snow Queen), So Ji Sub (Thousand Years’ Love), Ji Sung (Swallow the Sun), Cha Tae Hyun (Prince’s First Love), Gong Yoo (One Fine Day), Kang Ji Hwan (Hong Gil Dong), Jang Geun Suk (Hong Gil Dong), and Jung Gyu Woon (Romance Town), and they were all “on the brink” of fame. Because of this, it is said that she has the “Sung Yuri Effect,” or the “Female Dokko Jin” effect. She was interviewed on MBC’s “Section TV” and admitted that while filming kiss scenes with Jung Gyu Woon, he had been really awkward. The writer yelled at him – “Why are you so bad at this?” And then they kissed more passionately. GAH! That writer was smart.
  • Park Shin Hye. Is. So. Pretty. She. Is. The. Model. For. MAC. In. The. Fall. Buh… Me? Jealous? Hell yes.

  • New posters for Can’t Lose! It looks so…jokey. Parts of it remind me of Take Care of the Young Lady (not good) and Assorted Gems. Let’s see how it goes; the drama airs after Heartstrings. I feel like it’s going to be a ratings winner – or at least a modest hit – but I’m really iffy on the story. The drama can’t be a total loss though – not only does it have Choi Ji Woo and Yoon Sang Hyun, but it also has Kim Jung Tae and Sung Dong Il (my favorite “supporting actors” from the “2 Days 1 Night” special)
  • Lee Yo Won styles it up for InStyle Korea, featuring a lot of fall clothing. She also CUT HER HAIR!!! Super cute though. Her next project is still up in the air.

  1. I’ve been stalking blogs and soompi all day for the latest news on the Myun-Wol the Spy crisis.

    It’s so juicy and scandalous, it’s hard to avoid it.

  2. I was just thinking how awesomely cracktastic this scandal has turned out to be myself…I came to DB first thing this morning to check for any news on who the actress replacement would be….hehehe…we’ve had a pretty good year with K-ent shocking news this year…starting with I think the Lee Ji ah scandal earlier this year….I’m just glad none of it were anything tragic like suicides or deaths caused by accidents (*knocks on wood*)…though we did have a bunch of actors that got into accidents and scrapes (CHun Jung Myung, Jae Hee, the half a dozen motor accidents last month) none of them were seriously hurt..(thanks god)…..btw I hear Han Ye Seul has opted to comeback to the drama
