Kim So Eun and Kim Bum have an awkward relationship

Actress Kim So Eun has come out and explained why her relationship with Kim Bum has become awkward now.

Kim So Eun will be appearing on the February 18th episode of Happy Together Season 3 to promote her new drama, A Good Day For The Wind To Blow where she was asked about her relationship with Kim Bum. If you didn’t know, Kim So Eun and Kim Bum were a couple in Boys Before Flowers and were coined as the SoEul couple by fans.

Before Boys Before Flowers, they were actually on really good terms with each other as they were both majoring in film studies at Chung-Ang University. As a result, they got along really well with each other during filming and their chemistry showed.

They maintained contact with each other even after filming ended and also collaborated together on several CFs.

Kim So Eun expressed, “After the drama ended, our relationship became kind of awkward because of all the scandals. Although we still have a good relationship like in the past, we couldn’t contact each other in the aftermath of all the scandals. Even when we meet at the tv station, it becomes very awkward between us.”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Group So Nyeo Shi Dae makes a surprising appearance on Japanese Oricon album charts.

According to Oricon chart on 15th February, So Nyeo Shi Dae’s 2nd album ‘Oh!’ has entered the chart at #54 spot for the 2nd week of February. This is eye catching since there was no promotions done at all for the release of the album in Japan and their entrance on the chart is already in the top 100. Moreover, So Nyeo Shi Dae also did not get any official licensing for their album in Japan. 
A SM Ent rep also revealed on 18th February that So Nyeo Shi Dae’s ‘Oh’ album is not only doing well in Korea but also in China, Japan and other Asian countries.
The rep said, “We are also shocked that So Nyeo Shi Dae has gone up the Oricon chart even without promotions. According to SM Japan, the girls’ albums are on sales in local mega stores.”
And about the possibility that girls will promote in Japan, “There are no confirmed solid plans about that.”

tl;dr: SNSD on Oricon Top 100 without promotions or official sales.

SNSD’s Seohyun is receiving lots of love calls

We all know Seohyun’s been receiving love calls from her new husband Jung Yonghwa, but that’s not all. Ever since SNSD returned with Oh!, the youngest member of the group has been completely stealing the spotlight and it’s about time.

Seohyun who was always quiet and overshadowed is now quite the popular one, she’s been receiving love calls from various drama producers. A representative stated, “she has received offers for many different projects.”

The rep also stated, “Different from the other SNSD members who are well known to the public, it’s actually an advantage that Seohyun is low key. She’s still young and we know she has enormous room to grow, therefore the broadcast studios have been highly anticipating what she has to offer.”

Seohyun’s quiet personality and pure innocent looks are finally being recognized by fans as well as the industry. Jung Yonghwa is a lucky man, or is it the other way around…

The Influence’s teaser poster and preview

The official poster has been released for “mystery digital blockbuster” The Influence, and my main question is: Considering that it stars one of Korea’s top A-listers (Lee Byung-heon) and the nation’s “Barbie doll” (Han Chae-young), that’s the best they could do? (It looks so cheesy!)

The preview is also out (watch below) for the thriller, which seems to thrive on cryptic plotlines: Lee plays “W,” who can travel through time over 100 years, while Han is “J,” his love interest who is locked in a tank called “Jubilee.” The movie is about a promise that doesn’t change and which must be kept through the years. A shadowy group called the “DJC” figures heavily in the mystery.

The full movie will be released online in early March.

'Irresponsible' TV Shows Face Crackdown

President Lee Myung-bak has expressed deep concerns over some "irresponsible" television programs and entertainers that fan violent and antisocial behavior among adolescents, a presidential spokesman said Thursday.

Lee was referring to a controversy over a series of reports on violent graduation rituals by some middle and high school students.

"While talking with presidential staff, the President pointed out that some TV programs targeting teenagers are negatively affecting their culture," spokesman Park Sun-kyoo said.

"Lee was worried about the possibility that sexually explicit expressions and violent acts shown in the programs could do harm to students and lead to an increase in juvenile crime."

The remarks indicate that there could be a crackdown in the future on TV shows and some entertainers who have gained popularity for slanderous remarks.

The Korea Communications Commission and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism are responsible for supervising mass media and the entertainment industry.
