Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 6.24.57 PM

Our 229th Running Man adventure starts with guest Lee Seung Gi getting his very own spy mission. He is to eliminate all the members and guest Moon Chae Won in secret – a classic Running Man spy mission. But he won’t be alone – famed grump Lee Seo Jin will be joining him to complete the mission. True to form, Seo Jin doesn’t seem to be too thrilled about it, and suggests that Seung Gi eliminate him first. They will only be able to eliminate the other members when the two spies are together, but if anyone else catches on, they will fail the mission.

The actor who portrayed an over-the-top Hallyu star (before Cha Seung Won, natch) is the “big Hallyu star” to costar alongside Choi Ji Woo in her upcoming drama Can’t Lose. He will play her lawyer husband who becomes her ex-husband.

Whoa! I don’t know if I’m happy about this or not. I personally love Yoon when he’s being over the top but in a comic way. I don’t think that’s the tone this drama is going for, but wouldn’t it be funny to see Choi Ji Woo act more carefree and loose – kind of like how she is in 2 Days 1 Night? I mean, that would make this lawyer-divorce drama a little more fun to watch.

Looks like the media frenzy has done enough damage. Lee Jia dropped her lawsuit against Seo Taiji after realizing that it would be difficult to continue after all the pain she’s caused to the people around her. The media certainly made it worse on her than it could have been. Seo released a statement saying that they had married in 1997, separated in 2000, and divorced in 2006 despite efforts to mend their relationship. He had not expected this lawsuit at all. Papers were also released showing that the two had officially divorced in 2006 (rather than 2009, as Lee had claimed), and that she had waived her rights for spousal support from the singer.

OK – while she may have had a good reason for bringing up the lawsuit, can I just say how ridiculous it is that you created a media frenzy by claiming you divorced in 2009, and asking for money after you waived spousal support? Why lie?! Why go through all this chaos if you’re gonna lose this lawsuit anyways?

Did you really want to get revenge on Seo Taiji and just see if you could tarnish his image? (‘Cause that’s what her statement seemed to say to me.)

Ariel Lin revealed to the press that she’s dating someone. Now that’s something you don’t admit everyday. She won’t reveal his identity but only says that he is a “big help to her acting and singing career.” Money on the manager? Anyone?

She was actually attending a press conference for Taiwan Organ Registry and Sharing Center, of which she is an ambassador.

Hon: A Review

Ok – I’m definitely not a horror-drama kind of fan, but hey, first time for everything right?

This drama is like a tripped-up freaky version of the movie “The Sixth Sense,” except it goes more for the outright horror than it does for the quiet, building sense of eeriness.

I have to say, the beginning sequence of the first episode intrigued me, and I loved the way the drama was shot cinematically. So right from the first minute I’m already giving points to this drama. I’m pulled into the drama, and Lee Seo Jin sure is kinda weird… in a good way, for his character. Spoilers will abound, as I will summarize the series and then post my comments.
