Cha Seung Wonrecently won two awards in Mnet’s 20’s Choice Awards. Hosted by Suzy and Song Joong Ki, the awards show gave ukelele trophies to stars chosen by the fans in many categories. For Cha, he won both Hot Drama Actor and Hot Male Body (with a 6-pack). No doubt this is because of his burst of fame from Greatest Love. His costar Gong Hyo Jin also won Hot Drama Actress and Hot Style Icon.
Other winners included KARA (Hot Hallyu Star), Suzy (Hot New Star), B2ST (Hot Performance Star), Honey Lee (Hot Female Body), Yoo Ah In (Hot 20’s Voice), and Goo Hara (Hot Campus Girl). The full list can be seen here.
Singer Younha released a music video for her single from her new album “Lost in Love.” The single, “Please Take Care of My Boyfriend” also stars Kim Dong Wook (of Coffee Prince and Dandelion Family). It’s a nice ballad with a sweet story and a sad ending.
(I hope that didn’t spoil it for you. What? It’s a ballad.What ending were you expecting?)
It’s nearly the end of October! I feel like just a few posts ago I was like, “It’s the start of October!” Weird…
Anyways – I think this news bits edition will focus on singers-turned-idol-actors. To start, Eric Mun of ShinHwa is now out of the army! He is one of the ones who entered late in age, since an accident in 2006 led him to enter the army in 2008. He will begin filming the new drama Poseidon. Say hi!
With that, it means there is one full month (April) before the start of the Shanghai Expo 2010. (I SO want to go – if I only had the money…) There are nearly 200 countries participating in this expo event, and with that, South Korea is sending its very own Lee Jun Ki as an ambassador to the expo. Lee enjoys big popularity in China, so it is only fitting that he be sent to drive the tourists and locals craaaaaazy! 🙂
