Ninja Assassin and Raptor's Girl for "Living in Heaven"

Earlier, we reported that singer/actor Rain signed on to play the male lead role for the upcoming blockbuster movie, “Living in Heaven“. Actress Shin Se Kyung was also billed as his co-star, but back then, reports could only guess on her confirmation.

The media is now reporting that the actress has indeed signed on for the project, and she’ll be playing Rain’s love interest. The two have finalized their contracts, and filming will soon begin in earnest.

Directed by Kim Dong Won and produced by CJ Entertainment, ’Living in Heaven’ is a remake of ‘The Red Scarf‘ (1964). For this melodramatic film, Rain will tackle the role of ‘Taewoon‘, a fighter pilot, and Shin Se Kyung will play as ‘Seyoung‘, a mechanic.

Viewers are annoyed at an idol-filled Lunar New Year

This Lunar New Year, many viewers were disappointed because all the Lunar New Year specials seemed to be taken over by Idols. There was "Idol Health and Beauty Contest," "Idol Brain Battle," "Idol Olympics," "Idol Star 7080 Singer King," "King of Idols," "Star Dance Battle" and "Star Couple Battle."

Not only so, but shows such as "Idol Health and Beauty Contest" and "Idol Olympics - Swimming Contest" were criticized because it focused on their bodies. On most of the programs, many idols that were all mostly in their early 20s wore revealing clothes and did suggestive dances, making viewers turn the channel in shock.

Idk but I personally really enjoyed "King of Idols" - reminded me a lot of the older 2006-to-2007ish K-variety shows like X-Man.

Heechul explains the process behind his career decisions

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Super Junior’s Kim Heechul has been leading a busy career ever since his debut in 2005. Super Junior is on their third Asian tour, and he’s a fixed cast member of MBC’s “Radio Star“, MBC’s “Night of Shining Memories“, and SBS’s “Young Street.”

His four dimensional personality and self-named ‘Big Space Star’ image is obviously working with the public, but that doesn’t mean his career was based on spur-of-the-moment decisions.

In an interview with Star News, Heechul explained that the latter half of 2010 gave him a chance to reflect on his future.

He stated, “At the time, I wondered whether I should focus on my individual activities outside of Super Junior, or accelerate into the variety genre. I had a chance last year to visit L.A. during an SM Town concert, and I was able to walk around freely while thinking about these concerns. In the end, I became determined to not worry about anything and to just focus on becoming a better MC.

When asked about his candid manner of speech, he replied, “I try to show a more honest and free sense of myself during broadcasts, but I do realize that this means I must be even more respectful and upright outside of my broadcast activities.”

He continued, “If a character like me didn’t have respect as a foundation, it’s easy for me to be hated. Think about it. If I were to commit something that would raise public concern, wouldn’t I look really cocky? But of course, please note that my courteousness comes from my genuineness as well (laughter).”
