Finishing HA:TFELT Was Like WWIII Between JYP and Yenny

G2b3K1C

Yenny of Wonder Girls recently confessed that getting a solo album was like starting a war against J.Y. Park.

In an interview with OSEN News, Yenny admitted, "While I was writing the album I fought with J.Y. Park so much. The album was like World War III."

Yenny continued, "Even selecting the single was like war. I really liked the third track, 'Ain't Nobody,' but the fourth track, 'Bond,' is the only sexy track on the album. Obviously, J.Y. Park recommended ['Bond'] as the title track for the album. He claimed that, 'This sort of sexiness is that of a dimension that only you can show.'"

Yenny further explained, "I absolutely never thought of HA:TFELT's sexy concept as a bad thing. However, going with the sexy concept theme, I suffered through the composition of two songs.  It seemed like in my previous music I wasn't really expressing myself, so this time I pushed as far as I could."

Team behind “Good Doctor” Reunites for a Vampire Medical Drama

gooddoctor

The production team behind the critically acclaimed drama “Good Doctor” will be collaborating once again for a new vampire
medical drama.


Producer Ki Min Soo and writer Park Jae Bum have both signed onto work on a new KBS drama called “Blood” (working title).

“Blood,” similar to “Good Doctor,” will be a medical drama, but unlike “Good Doctor,” it will be a fantasy mellow drama about a vampire doctor.

The production company for “Blood,” IOK Media, has announced that they have begun searching for the male lead.

According to KBS, the exact airing dates are not yet decided, but they are currently aiming for an early-2015 airing.

Which male actor do you think would be perfect for a brooding vampire doctor?

I honestly didn't realise that I didn't make a post last week but it's just as well considering that totally unexpected turn of events [~_~]
but I guess I can't complain too much because this drama has been makjang from the start. I'm just glad it didn't drag on forever...or so it seems. But can we please throw Soo In, Joo Hee and Director Wang off a cliff already? I'm glad Geun Woo finally told Soo In everything happened because of her - she needed a dose of reality. And the writers had better not redeem her character and make Geun Woo magically see her in a different light. Byul remains the best thing about this drama.

South Korean activists airlift Choco Pies to North Korea



A year after North Korea cracked down on Choco Pies—marshmallow-filled chocolate cakes originating in South Korea—activists in South Korea sent thousands of the beloved confections over the border via helium balloons, AFP reports. South Korean activists regularly launch balloons, usually carrying anti-Pyongyang leaflets, across the border.

North Koreans working in South Korean factories in a joint industrial zone received the confections as perks, but their rarity in the North boosted their value and they soon became a sought after commodity. By 2010, according to South Korean media, more than 2 million were traded on the black market every month. Last May, authorities in Pyongyang ordered the factories to stop handing out Choco Pies.

"Embarrassed by the growing popularity of Choco Pie, North Korea banned it as a symbol of capitalism," said Choo Sun-Hee, one of the organisers of Wednesday's balloon launch.

"We will continue to send Choco Pie by balloons because it is still one of the most popular foodstuffs, especially among hungry North Koreans," Choo told AFP.

Pyongyang has repeatedly pressed Seoul to stop the activists and threatened to shell the launch sites.
