[Seo In Guk Suffers Injury on Set that Suits the Plot]


Viewers who caught the latest episode of "High School King of Manners" witnessed a scene in which Seo In Guk was exercising so enthusiastically that he injured himself. His character falls so hard during training camp that he had to wear a sling. And that leads his secretary, played by Lee Ha Na, to think he was injured in an earthquake in Japan.

But what may have puzzled viewers is the fact that he has an ace bandage wrapped around his shoulder before he even fell.

He earned that ace bandage while filming another scene in which his character played ice hockey.

According to his agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, the actor was treated right after he injured his shoulder ligament and he returned to the set immediately after treatment. He wanted to continue shooting is scene.

"He has a shoulder guard on because he hurt his ligament, but he removes it during shoots," said a Jellyfish Entertainment representative. "He only keeps it on during breaks or when he's looking over his script."

Whether the injury he sustains working out was originally part of the script or was added after he injured himself, it is convenient as it allows him to wear a cast and rest his arm.

The naturally athletic star learned to play ice hockey especially for his "High School King of Manners" role. He took professional ice hockey lessons for two months, practicing with the Kwangwoon University hockey team and star hockey player Ahn Geun Young.

"I want to be an actor who fulfills the role assigned to me," said Seo. "If the character requires me to put on weight and look ugly, I will do the background work in order to immerse myself in that role."

Still, even with two months practice, hockey can be a rough game and simply wearing the heavy uniform can be exhausting. His character is supposed to be an ice hockey star and perhaps the best athlete on the team.

Oh Sang Jin and Girls’ Generation Sooyoung to Host the 2014 Miss Korea Pageant



TV personality Oh Sang Jin (“You Who Came from the Stars") and Girls’ Generation's Sooyoung will be hosting the 2014 Miss Korea Pageant, to be held on July 15 at 7PM (KST) at Olympic Hall in Seoul’s Olympic Park. Artists invited to the pageant to perform include DJ KOO, Fly to the Sky, DickPunks, K-Girls, pianist Shin Ji Ho, Jin Jung Hoon, and others.

This won’t be the first time together for Oh Sang Jin and Sooyoung, who co-hosted 2009’s “Fantasy Couple.” Currently, Sooyoung is hosting SBS’ “Night of TV Entertainment,” and Oh Sang Jin Mnet’s “Dancing 9.”

[Netizen Comments]
1. [+1,421, -246] Sooyoung, please never go into acting

2. [+1,030, -262] Sigh... Why did Oh Sang Jin leave MBC... He has no talent, should've just stayed quiet as a 9 o clock news anchor...

3. [+735, -115] Nono to acting

4. [+986, -394] If Sooyoung's the MC, shouldn't it be 'Miss SEA' not 'Miss Korea'?

5. [+790, -270] The break period between each of SNSD's new song releases are getting longer and longer~ Are they giving up on the group...?

6. [+226, -55] Sooyoung gets so much support compared to the actual talent she has

7. [+173, -13] No good Miss Koreas lately, they're not natural but not plastic surgery monsters either

8. [+143, -10] Can we just make a Miss Korea for natural people only?

9. [+199, -88] Sunny, Hyoyeon, and Sooyoung are not celebrity-level beauties. Nobody would even look at them if they were non-celebrities.

10. [+114, -37] Could they really not find any other anchorwoman? Why Sooyoung of all the choices?

image_readtop_2014_973510_14048821701420160

“As I experience the stage as a trainee, I’ve found my undiscovered charms.”

Cube Entertainment that houses BEAST, 4minute and G.NA, has recently garnered attention for having trainees to promote alongside their artists. Their pretty visuals and slender bodies had garnered strong attention from the public. The same goes for G.NA’s male back dancers as well.

Among the many of them, Kim HyoJong (20 years old) expressed the reason of being a back dancer, the process and also his thoughts on concluding the promotions. Kim HyoJong has been with Cube for more than a year, attending specific classes and training during his year as a trainee.

Taeyang article for GQ: " I thought I would be able to do whatever I wanted for the next album"



Photoshoot was posted here

Some choice quotes from the article:

What Taeyang wanted to do: After [the last album] <Solar>, I didn’t really think much about what to do as far as the next album was concerned. I just went on a lot of trips. As to the next album, I figured I’ll just do whatever I want. The music I was into at the time was very dark, cold underground R&B, and when I tried to make that kind of music, I ended up butting heads with our company a bit.

About dealing with YG: In the end, this place, too, deals with mainstream music and deals with the general public. To compare, I’m the gambler, but I’m not the one who actually decides how to bet. I make the moves, but it’s the company that looks at those moves and makes the bet. And as the company continues to grow in scale, its musical colors have become more varied. Sometimes, it’s still hard to believe a group like Akdong Musician is in our company.

Paris Fashion Week: (Laughs) If we’re going to talk about Paris Fashion Week, it’s a lot of fun watching the shows. But, the whole time, I was uncomfortable with the appearance that I was there just to be seen, a celebrity wanting to be photographed. When, really, if you’ve been invited to a show, it’s simply courtesy to wear their clothes and try to look good… To be honest, the first time I went, it was an escape, in a sense. I would stress and stress about the album and just feel stuck, never getting anywhere. So I left to refresh myself and have a change of pace. But the second time I went, I realized it. What this is about. I don’t think you’ll see me [in that kind of setting] again.

Almost having Cho Yong Pil in RISE: I would have loved to sing ‘Let Go’ with Cho Yong-Pil sunbaenim, so I pursued it, but we were pressed for time and couldn’t make it happen. I went to him with the song, and he told me the music was good, but that he didn’t have the time to sing on it. In a way, I was grateful he declined because I understood that he’s not someone who does anything casually. I didn’t want to rush it either.
