Park Shin Hye returns after her car accident with a new perm, showing off her new curls in a recent tweet. She had requested her “Lee Gyu Won” look, which her stylist then gave her, but now all she has to worry about is if her curls will fall apart in Korea’s current wet weather. Because she looks oh-so-cute, her photo has sent netizens a-buzzing about loving her hairstyle. Personally? I don’t even get why this made it on the news…and look, here I am writing about it! Heh.

A Love Rectangle for Park Shin Hye

It is possible that Park Shin Hye’s Lee Gyu Won is the most popular student in her college now, even more so than Woori‘s Hee Joo.

Lee Hyun Jin, who plays the amazingly talented Ki Young, hinted that there might be another love line for Gyu Won in the coming episodes.

Heartstrings: First Impressions

A new summer drama to refresh my palate. I actually liked it! I’m on board for this drama because it’s got good music and a simple plot. While it did take two episodes to get the storyline up and running, it does remind me a lot of Coffee House last year. Both are light and refreshing, and it doesn’t hurt that Park Shin Hye is just so fun to watch.

I watched it on DramaFever, where there are also actor shout outs in the first two episodes. Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye greet viewers in English. It’s awesome.

Well well now. When one couple ends, another blossoms! Goo Hara (from girl group KARA and currently in City Hunter) and BEAST’s Yong Joon Hyung are officially dating. (The guys have similar names too…) Photos of the two revealed them holding hands, and so their agencies released a statement confirming their coupledom. Congratulations to the two! It’ll be young puppy love. I don’t think it’ll last, but it’s nice to see these overworked pop idols take some time to be “normal” and date.

Heartstrings Press Conference

That really means – photo spamazz!

The friendship between Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye was palpable, and Jung even said that he feels so comfortable around her that he thinks of her as like one of the members in his band. That’s a sweet statement – and sure to send all Shin Woo-Mi Nam shippers in a frenzy. Park asked if that means she can join CN Blue, to which Jung and fellow bandmate Kang Min Hyuk said that she can play keyboards.

Hm – maybe a collaboration in the works?!

The press conference included professors Song Chang Ui and So Yi Hyun, as well as “the other pesky girl” Woori. (I’m calling her “pesky girl” but she’s really just another person who has a crush on Jung Yong Hwa but gets rebuffed.) The ladies are beautiful in their flowing dresses. The guys? Only Jung Yong Hwa looks uncomfortable.

SHINee’s Jong Hyun and Shin Se Kyung broke up. The reason is reportedly due to their busy schedules. Shin Se Kyung has been shooting films and dramas left and right, while Jong Hyun has been touring with his group. The two of them had been under the spotlight ever since they announced their relationship late last year. While some fans have been saddened by the news, other reactions include, “This was not unexpected – it’s not a surprise.”

I personally don’t think it’s much of a surprise. Young love under the glare of media spotlight? Good luck if that lasts!

Lee Seung Gi appeared in a Japanese show SMAPxSMAP, which is a variety show that features a cooking segment (where members of the group SMAP cook for the guests), a skits/performances segment, and a musical performance. He appeared in a skit and was praised for his natural acting – despite it all being in Japanese.
