Miss A supporting Fei on Dancing With Stars + Fei introduces her partner to fans for DWTS!

miss A came to show their support for Fei on ‘Dancing With the Stars 3‘!

The first episode of the third season aired on the 8th. Before the actual competition kicks off the first episode showed footage of each contestant preparing for their upcoming competition.

Fei expressed her worry by saying, “miss A has an image of being able to dance well, so I’m worried people will be disappointed. But I want to do well as a professional.”

Fei worked incredibly hard, and even practiced by herself during the break she had while miss A was rehearsing for their Singapore showcase.

The other ladies of miss A wanted to know first about her male partner. They asked, “How is he? Is he good looking? Did you get his number?“, and Fei burst out into laughter.

But of course they also cheered Fei on by saying, “I think Fei will do very well. I want to see her on stage already. I hope she gets #1.”

Park Chan-wook's 'Stoker' Shows Initial Strength in Multi-City Opening

After months of films with mostly older-audience appeal playing off during the awards circus, Fox Searchlight's "Stoker," a stylish thriller from a noted Asian cult director making his English-language debut, boasted the best limited opening of any 2013 release so far. Although not performing at the initial level of most recent Oscar nominees or other hits like "Quartet," this marks a pleasant surprise despite less-than-stellar reviews.

"Stoker" (Fox Searchlight) - Metacritic score: 59; Festivals include: Sundance 2013, Rotterdam 2013

$158,000 in 7 theaters; PSA (per screen average): $22,500

Can't believe there hasn't been a new Park Chan-wook / "Stoker" article since my last post about it!! A really stylish and disturbing dramatic horror/thriller film that I really advise everyone to check out. There is also a really nice Matthew Goode interview you can read here, (who absolutely stands out in this film).

Guess which country ranked bottom in the Economist's glass-ceiling index

Where is best to be a working woman in the rich world

IF YOU are a working woman, you would do well to move to New Zealand—or if that is a little out of the way, you could try one of the Nordic countries. To mark International Women’s Day, The Economist has compiled its own “glass-ceiling index” to show where women have the best chance of equal treatment at work. Based on data mainly from the OECD, it compares five indicators across 26 countries: the number of men and women respectively with tertiary education; female labour-force participation; the male-female wage gap; the proportion of women in senior jobs; and net child-care costs relative to the average wage. The first four are given equal weighting, the fifth a lower one, since not all working women have children. New Zealand scores high on all the indicators. Finland does best on education; Sweden has the highest female labour-force participation rate, at 78%; and Spain has the smallest wage gap, at 6%. The places not to be are South Korea and Japan, partly because so few women hold down senior jobs (though the new president of South Korea is a woman).

9moses shares group struggles, seeks to throw off their kill heels, & wants to have a reality show!


With an average height of 172cm, Nine Muses certainly seems to fit snugly into the nickname ′model-dol′ given it with its debut. The nickname did much in establishing the team′s image in a fierce year, when the debut of such successful girl groups as 2NE1, 4minute, T-ara, f(x) and Secret in 2009 brought on a torrent of more new debuts the following year.

While the nickname, which was focused on the members′ looks, belittled their musical capacity as a result, it did help Nine Muses build a unique image of its own and let it avoid comparison with most other girl groups.

Though it looked peaceful on the outside, however, Nine Muses actually had to suffer from the storm raging within. Many members left the group while still others made their way in; the original members Jae Kyung, Rana and Bini left early on, and the group welcomed one by one Hyun A, Kyung Ri and Sung-A. This confusion actually helped the members bond more tightly together.

Girl's Day Comeback Post

“Nearly three years after their debut, Girl’s Day is finally releasing their first full-length album Expectation. Other than their previous singles like “Twinkle Twinkle,” “Don’t Forget Me,” “Don’t Flirt” and Oh! My God!, the album comes with six new tracks including the title song, which features a mix of analog and electronic sound. Sojin composed the intro Girl’s Day World and the group members also penned the lyrics for I Don’t Mind, which is composed by American producer Gregg Pagani.”

"Scary Story 2"/"Cliff" has an awesome rookie cast!


Sung Jun has been cast for the film Scary Story 2.

The actor will appear in the ′Cliff (tentative title)′ episode of the film, which is a sequel to a well-received horror film released in 2012.

Cliff is about how two friends get involved in a life-threatening situation after climbing a mountain together. Sung Jun will be acting with Lee Soo Hyuk, who also used to be a model. Director Kim Sung Ho, who had his film Into the Mirror be remade by Hollywood, will helm the section.

Sung Jun was previously recognized for his acting skills and good looks through the jTBC drama Can We Get Married?. He then debuted on the big screen with the film Dangerously Excited.

Scary Story 2 is an omnibus film, and started shooting on March 6. It aims to premiere in June.

More casting news at Dramabeans! Apparently Go Kyung Po and Kim Seul Gi (our fav couple from FBND) have been cast too!!

Edit: So everyone knows, an omnibus film is "a feature film consisting of several different short films, often tied together by only a single theme, premise, or brief interlocking event (often a turning point)." So it won't be all of them for a full 2 hours, but still fun they're in the same movie anyway!
