Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora Confirmed for ′Warm and Cozy′

Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora have been confirmed to lead the new drama, Warm and Cozy (tentative English title).

Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora will act as a couple for the first time in MBC′s Warm and Cozy as Baek Geon Woo, the owner and chef of the restaurant ′Warm and Cozy,′ and clothing company employee of five years, Lee Jung Joo, respectively.

[Read More]Warm and Cozy was created based on the idea of the love between an angry ant and the love-deprived grasshopper. The drama takes place on the beautiful island of Jeju, where a restaurant called ′Warm and Cozy′ is located. The Korean title, Mendorong Ttottot means ′warm and cozy′ in the Jeju dialect, and just like the meaning, the two main characters will learn to love each together.

Known for his good looks, eloquent speaking style, and gentle manners, Yoo Yeon Seok will be taking the role of Baek Geon Woo. Although he is all about what he likes and what he enjoys, Baek Geon Woo is a character that is still liked despite his brutally honest personality. Despite being an intellgient man who knows exactly what is good about himself, Baek Geon Woo is also a romantist, moving all the way to Jejudo and setting up a restaurant for the sole reason that the girl he likes is there.

Kang Sora will act as the crooked and complaining ′ant,′ Lee Jung Joo, who receives more pain and suffering in comparison to all the effort she′s put into life. Although she acts as if she knows everything in the world to put up a shield, she actually holds a very weak and gentle heart. After living in Seoul and working her butt off for five years, Lee Jung Joo still loses her job and her boyfriend, ending up in Jejudo to start a new life not by choice.

Working back and forth from drama to movies, Yoo Yeon Seok appeared in films, Architecture 101, A Werewolf Boy, as well as dramas, General Hospital, Gu Family Book, and more, getting noticed by the public. He especially appeared in tvN′s Reply 1994 as baseball player Chilbong, receiving explosive popularity and acknowledgement as an actor.

Kang Sora has also appeared in various dramas and movies, always expressing herself 100 percent. In 2014, she shined brightly in the drama Doctor Stranger and Misaeng, receiving much love from the public for her flexible and strong acting performances.

With these actors carrying very unique acting styles, anticipation is on the rise to see how Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora will do when working together.

Warm and Cozy will bring back the ′Hong Sisters,′ writers Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran with Park Hong Gyun PD, who created The Greatest Love in 2011 with sweet heart flutters, electrifying fun, soaring ratings, and strong production value, creating a widespread trend in Korea. The synergy of the Hong Sister′s strong writing and Park Hong Gyun′s smooth directing is already being anticipated by the public.

The drama′s production company, Bon Factory, stated, "Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora not only have the visuals but also the natural atmosphere that is perfect for the characters Baek Geon Woo and Lee Jung Joo."

"Please look forward to the perfect harmony that will be created with the energetic actors, Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora, the Hong Sisters, and Park Hong Gyu PD."

Warm and Cozy will broadcast in May after Angry Mom.


ps1: kang sora doesn't have a tag.. =/
ps2: I love both of them, but this drama...

Leader Taewoon leaves SPEED + joins “Show Me the Money 4″


On March 25th, it was announced that the leader of SPEED, Taewoon, has left the group and is confirmed to join the upcoming season of Show Me the Money 4.

Taewoon was a talented underground rapper prior to his career as an idol as a part of COED SCHOOL which later split into two sub-groups: 5Dolls, which recently disbanded, and his group, SPEED. His time as the leader of SPEED showcased his charismatic charm and his impeccable rap skills. He also became known as Block B Zico’s older brother after Zico’s debut.

Because Taewoon has continued to express his desire to pursue his dream of a career as a solo hip hop artist, MBK Entertainment has decided, after much discussion, that they will support the rapper as he transitions from a member of SPEED into a solo artist.

MBK Entertainment also confirmed that the talented rapper would be participating in the upcoming season of the hit rap show Show Me the Money 4 in order to make his mark as a solo artist. Zico quickly shared his thoughts and tweeted, “Please support my brother in his new beginning.”

Following the announcement of his departure from SPEED, it was revealed that Taewoon has been preparing extensively for the last two months in anticipation of the upcoming competition. The rapper also released a solo mixtape early this year.

Meanwhile, SPEED will be joined by a new member as they prepare for their first comeback in 2015.

AOA’s Choa to Replace Hong Jin Young As “We Got Married” Studio Panel


AOA‘s Choa is confirmed to be joining the cast of MBC reality program “We Got Married,” not as a part of a pretend couple but as a part of the studio panel.

The Hong Jin Young-Nam Goong Min couple has just recently ended their love story in the variety program, and with Hong Jin Young leaving the program, she left a vacant seat in the “We Got Married” studio, which will now be filled with AOA’s Choa. She used to be in the MBC Lunar New Year special show “My Little Television” where she showed her cute image in the variety show.

The AOA vocalist will be joining the panel together with Park Mi Sun, Heo Kyung Hwan and Eric Nam, all of whom will be voicing out their reactions over the current couples in the show.

Source: OSEN via Nate

1. [+488, -69] Their company is so dirty with their media play. When IU's scandal first blew up, they started media playing about Juniel as the second nation's little sister and got so much backlash... and now that Suzy's scandal exploded, I saw them yesterday trying to media play about Seolhyun being the second nation's first love ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They're hopeless

2. [+421, -30] She's just the panelist, don't get excited

3. [+343, -35] I don't even get why WGM has panelists, they're useless

4. [+19, -8] She'll match ㅋㅋ She's so outgoing

5. [+14, -2] Why are MCs like Park Misun even needed?? Do the producers have extra money just laying around?? Why not donate that money to charity

6. [+11, -4] Obviously another 1+1 package deal by FNC with Jonghyun, so sick of it

7. [+7, -1] Looks like I need to watch WGM again for Choa, congrats

8. [+7, -3] She seriously looks like some character out of a fantasy anime ㅠㅠ

OP Called it: Nam Joo Hyuk in talks for male lead in School 2015 Who Are You

The 21-year-old model has been making quite the splash on cable in the JTBC variety show I’m Going To School, along with a supporting role in the tvN drama Surplus Princess — both are debut projects for him, and he’s already in contention to star in Who Are You–School 2015.

The KBS Monday-Tuesday drama has finally secured a leading actress in Kim So-hyun (Reset), who recently confirmed the casting news. She’ll be playing a set of identical twins, and the series will be about one twin’s mysterious disappearance, while the other will transfer to her school and suddenly become the new It Girl in her place.

Nam Joo-hyuk is reportedly considering the role of the popular boy at school, which if you’ve ever seen him on I’m Going To School, is no stretch of the imagination. He’s much older than Kim So-hyun, but maybe it’s because he’s always dressed in a school uniform for that show that it doesn’t seem all that weird to cast him as a high-schooler.

Who Are You–School 2015 premieres April 27.

source: dramabeans

did i or did i not call it? to be fair there are really no other young enough up and coming actors to pick without straight up debuting newbies which is too much of a risk. i think this is a great idea and he's darling so i think it'll be wonderful. he's probably already confrimied seeing he dropped out of I'm Going To School. the whole point of the school series is to take newbies and make stars so i think he's ready enough, im just worried kim so hyun will dominate and a possible romance given she's a minor might be trouble.

Shinhwa’s Eric Lifts Marriage Ban and Tells Members to Start Setting Dates as They Wish

Addressing marriage again, Shinhwa’s leader, Eric lifted the marriage ban that he set earlier in 2015.

On March 26, SBS’ One Night of Entertainment visited Shinhwa at its 17th anniversary concert, where the marriage ban was mentioned.

Previously on SBS’ Healing Camp, Eric had told the members to not get married during the Sniper promotion period.

When asked if the marriage ban was necessary, Eric replied, “If someone had already gotten married, we wouldn’t have had to do this.”

But with 12th album activities wrapping up with much success, Eric added, “Now it’s okay. You can start setting up the dates as you wish.”
