Jang Dong-& Go So-young wedding pictures + a what their guests are wearing



On May 2, Jang Dong-gun married fellow actress Go So-young, and given Jang’s status as one of Korea’s most popular (and most loved) actors, the wedding was pretty much the equivalent of a fancy awards ceremony red carpet. There were approximately 500 (!) guests in attendance.

The wedding took place at Seoul’s Silla Hotel, which was preceded by a press conference (the ceremony itself was not open to the public or press).

Presiding as host for the event was longtime friend Park Joong-hoon (Haeundae). Veteran balladeer Shin Seung-hoon sang, while the bouquet was caught by good friend Lee Hye-young (Queen of Housewives).

The couple (he’s 38, she’s a few months younger at 37) will honeymoon in Bali.

Guests included: Jung Woo Sung, Lee Jung Jae, Lee Byung Hun, So Ji Sub, Song Seung Heon, Kim Nam Gil, Hyun Bin, Lee Seon-kyun, Cha Seung Won, Joo Jin Mo (what a bunch of GQ men mm), Ha Ji Won, Kwon Sang Woo & Son Taeyeong & son, Rain, Kim Min Hee, Shin Min-a, Lee Hye Young, Lee Jung Hyun and many more

Super Junior Radio Domination

[Radio★Super Junior]   "We've had two hard years but ... now it's our playground"



Every day from 8pm to the next day's daybreak at 2am is the world of Super Junior, who have 3 radio shows. From 8 to 10 it's SBS's Kim Heechul's Youngstreet, and then the baton is passed to KBS 2FM's Super Junior's Kiss the Radio from 10 until midnight. The final runner is Shindong. He breaks the silence from midnight to dawn the next day with MBC standard FM's "Shindong and Kim Shinyeong's Shimshimtapa", which energetically finishes the race.

They hold a meaningful record. Leeteuk and Eunhyuk have been hosting their program for 3 years and 8 months, holding the record amongst idol DJs. By surviving the 2010 KBS spring radio staff changes, they achieved a new record.

They are not an idol group that has to always be looking for new things, they haven't given up on what's been classified as "old media"*. We found out about the joys and sorrows and behind the scenes stories of Super Junior, who've been following the philosophy of "going where other groups don't go" since their debut in 2005.

The Playboy Doc is In

8 Questions with...



Korean-American actor-model Daniel Henney played a caring heart-throb doctor when he broke into the scene with Korean idol drama, My Lovely Samsoon, in 2005.

In his new US medical drama series Three Rivers, the 30-year-old plays a different kind of doctor: a womanising surgical resident who breaks the hearts of many women.

The show, which is currently airing on Sony Entertainment Television (mio TV Channel 20) every Wednesday at 10pm, tells the complex relationships among organ donors, the recipients and the surgeons.

Henney, who was born in Michigan in the United States to a Korean mother and an American father of British descent, says playing the role of Casanova Dr David Lee was not easy.

[STAR DIARY] Lee Min-ho - Part 6



Not long after Lee Min-ho had started shooting "Boys Over Flowers", he was to go on his overseas location shoot to New Caledonia.

"We shot there for twelve days and we ate baguette bread and meat the whole time. The island was French-governed territory, so everything was incredibly expensive. I think one meal cost about KRW 400,000 to 500,000 won. A coke cost about 15,000 won -- need I say more? Imagine eating that hard bread three times a day for twelve days."

Food was not the only problem during the New Caledonia shoot. "Seriously, the shoots went on without any break. There was barely any time to sleep. When we weren't shooting the drama, they would wake us up to shoot a photo spread of F4. Later I was told that, in my sleep, I had kicked my stylist with my foot when he was trying to wake me up. I don't remember doing that but, I think I was under stress subconsciously because I couldn't sleep, couldn't eat rice and the weather was so hot." (laugh)

8eight comeback May 11th with “Farewell is Coming”



3-member group 8eight will comeback on May 11th with their new song “Farewell is Coming,” releasing it online and offline simultaneously.

8eight’s mini album “The Bridge”‘s title song “Farewell is Coming” was written and composed by Bang Shi Hyuk. Also, for their album concept, they have adopted a theme of shocking romanticism and is garnering a lot of interest.

The concerned parties said favorably, “Even though Bang Shi Hyuk has made many hit songs with other artists, it seems that he shows the best match with 8eight. ‘Farewell is Coming’ is a song that only Bang Shi Hyuk and 8eight can come together to produce.”

8eight, who has had to postpone their album release by a month because of unfavorable conditions (the naval ship sinking) is planned to actively promote their album with the album release.

The song they previously released (Availability Period?) will be on this mini. So excited~

Coffee House preview video is out



The teaser video is out for Coffee House, the SBS drama formerly known as Page One, and it’s not half bad. You can’t judge much from a brief 40 seconds, of course, but it looks fun. Also: Kang Ji-hwan! (On a Segway! lolwut?)

This is the first we’ve seen of Kang since his legal dispute with his former management company, and he plays the main character, a bestselling author. He has a romantic storyline with a publishing executive, who is played by Park Shi-yeon (and also, it appears, with former child actor and current girl group member Eun-jung, who plays an employee of the Page One cafe that plays a large role in the story).

I have to say I like this version of Park Shi-yeon a lot more compared to the chic, upscale image she usually portrays. (Oh, she does look the part of those elegant ladies but the acting here seems much more engaging — her character looks like she’s got quite the temper.) And Eun-jung looks cute and natural. I’m not getting too excited just yet, but I am looking forward to it. (Kang! Ji! Hwan!)

Coffee House will air on Mondays and Tuesdays in the earlier hour, to follow Oh My Lady. It premieres May 17.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Comedian Heo Kyung Hwan parodied G-Dragon’s Heartbreaker jacket photo for his online shopping mall. He named himself Heo-Dragon, and roused laughter amongst netizens with his amusing photo.

Heo Kyung Hwan said, “I’m sorry to G-Dragon and his fans but I feel like this is 100% identical. Comedy is just comedy. I hope you take it lightly and laugh it off.”

Looks like no one’s taking it offensively, as netizens commented about the parody’s high quality and the obvious similarities, which have encouraged Heo to promise an extra photo of the parody soon.
