Oh the most hilarious photoshop ever!

Park Shi Yeon, Nam Gyu Ri, and Park Jin Hee all participated in a photo shoot for Marie Claire Korea, dressed in bathrobes in a hotel tub. Thing is, if you look carefully, Park Shi Yeon’s legs are gone!! It doesn’t even look plausible that Park is standing behind the tub, as it looks to be quite connected to the wall. (Then again, it could be just the angle and she could be standing behind it!)

Either way – funny photoshop indeed!

New Stills from Protect the Boss

If you thought Heartstrings, or Greatest Love, or Romance Town, or Sparkling had too many names, well so does this drama. The Choi Kang Hee-Ji Sung drama was first called The Last Female Secretary, and then it changed to The Boss Has Changed, and now it’s called Protect the Boss. Sigh… Well at least its latest name implies that it’s a comedy.

The following stills show Choi Kang Hee interviewing in front of Jaejoong, who is the more competent Cha than his cousin Cha Ji Hun (played by Ji Sung). She is so desperate to make a good impression that she even does a little dance. I doubt Jaejoong’s Cha Mu Won is much amused.

Then there are stills of Ji Sung with Wang Ji Hye. It looks like when they were dating in happier times, as Ji Sung’s permed hair is even more atrocious than the current one. It looks like after they broke up he decided to be more of a playboy and upping his partying ways.

The final set of stills show Choi Kang Hee fighting off some baddies. I am impressed – a high kick in heels and shorts? Niiice. That doesn’t mean she can slack off on her coffee runs though… The original stills of when she was practicing for this scene can be found here.

What in the what?!

When did this happen!? Jung Gyu Woon posted up a photo on Twitter of him with Kim So Yeon, saying “Feeling refreshed with So Yeon-noona!” Based on their clothing it looks like the photo came from when they were shooting the ALL FOR YOU CF together (video below). I don’t think anyone in their right mind is wearing such heavy clothing in the summer.

UNLESS – they could have another photo shoot or CF in the works? If anyone knows where this photo might be from, let me know!

Personal Taste Interviews

With Son Ye Jin, Lee Min Ho, Kim Ji Suk, and Wang Ji Hye – these interviews were quite enlightening. Didn’t realize Kim Ji Suk was going to the army this year, and Wang Ji Hye is totally embracing her evil character – which makes me wonder how well she’ll pull it off.

Here is a shortened version of their interview. For the full thing, check out part one here and part two here.

Q: How did you choose to do “Personal Taste”?
Son Ye-jin (Son): Up till now, I have played characters that were older than my actual age. I don’t really look old, but I had come to choose older parts because I was trying to show my serious, deep side. The film “White Night” was very hard on me psychologically and physically, so I wanted to do a fresh, young drama befitting my age for my next work. So it wasn’t hard to choose “Personal Taste”.
Lee Min-ho (Lee): I wanted to do a masculine drama, so this was actually what I thought about the hardest when trying to choose my next role. I thought hard and I thought about the image that the public had of Lee Min-ho — probably closer to a young man rather than a real man. I think I would do a better job playing heavy and more defined roles when I am older. I think “Personal Taste” was perfect because it is bright, cheerful but you can also laugh and cry over it as well.
