Sung Joon <3



The recent interview with Jung So-min came out at the end of last year, just as her popular cable drama Can We Get Married was heading into its finale. A new interview came out with her co-star Sung Joon just this past week, and caught up to him after he’d had a bit of time to deal with the end of the show and the aftermath of fan-love that followed from it. Not that he hadn’t earned lots of fan-love before, but Can We Get Married really seems to be the one to solidify his leading-man status and set him up for the future.

Education Ministry Aims to Make High School Education Free

korea.students-key-exam201211afp

The education ministry will aim to make high school education free for everyone by 2017
as part of efforts to implement President-elect Park Geun-hye's campaign pledges on education policy, officials said Tuesday.

Officials from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology reported the plan to the presidential transition committee during a policy briefing earlier in the day, saying that it would expand the current program that provides free education only to students in vocational schools or from low-income families.

These groups account for about a third of all high schoolers.

If realized, the plan will help ensure all children aged 3-17 receive free childcare and education before the end of Park's administration. The outgoing government is pushing to provide free childcare services to all children aged 3 to 5.

On Park's pledge to halve the burden of college tuition fees, the ministry said it expects to be able to give scholarships to all students in the bottom 30 percent income bracket within this year, a year ahead of schedule.

Ministry officials also reported plans to implement Park's pledge to exempt middle school students from taking exams for one semester during which they will be able to explore possible career paths.

Based on Park's pledge to launch a new ministry overseeing the science and technology industry, the officials said they plan to increase investment in scientific research and development to 5 percent of gross domestic product.

JYJ Will Release a 1000th Day Magazine

JYJ

JYJ will release a magazine to commemorate their 1000th day in South Korea and Japan. C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We are going to release a magazine titled ‘The JYJ’ which is a celebratory interview magazine commemorating JYJ’s 1000th day. The magazine contains the records of everything that JYJ has done after their debut. This includes their worldwide English album, world tour, solo acts, musical appearances, and drama appearances."

C-JeS Entertainment even spoke about the recent settlement with SM Entertainment regarding JYJ’s contract status. They stated, “JYJ had a long legal fight that lasted 3 years because of an unfair contract. JYJ has gained more freedom. On top of that, it is even more meaningful because JYJ has helped other upcoming idols have better contractual conditions than before. Through the interview in the magazine, JYJ has talked about the hard times they went through because of the ‘restrictions’ they received.

C-JeS Entertainment’s CEO stated that he and JYJ wanted to use this chance to give a magazine that could be memorable to fans who have stuck with JYJ till the end.

JYJ said of the magazine, “Looking back at the 1,000 days there were a lot of difficult times but we can honestly say that we were happy. We tried very hard and there were hard times we did not anticipate. But, through these hardships we learned a lot and grew. We want to tell fans the happy days we felt throughout these 1,000 days.

The “The JYJ” magazine contains nearly 25 hours of interview content and is consisted of 139 pages. There is also a special DVD that comes with the magazine. “The JYJ” magazine will begin selling throughout South Korea and Japan in early February.
