Previous episodes

Ok let OP rant just a little bit: so I'm a little disappointed at how half-assed this series is this year, most of the time the connection is pretty bad and they don't have time to properly engage or talk even, the episodes shot quickly between schedules. The most entertaining ones so far have been the ones with Jackson, bless him and his blabbermouth (the jackbum one is pretty hilarious and basically just him talking about his time on LOTJ). Markjae mostly just talk about how much schedules they have and how busy they are. And I get that they are that, just hoped that if they're doing this series, they'd do it like they did it previously :/ oh well.

Copycat TV continues to be the trend


JTBC's "Let's Eat Dinner Together" and KBS's "Let Me Stay for One Night"



Chinese TV shows have been under fire for blatantly copying Korean formats, replicating the same sets and even titles of shows. When it comes to local TV shows, the situation is not much different.

Local broadcasters have been airing similar shows in similar formats, escaping plagiarism disputes by a hair's breadth.

I remember when Return of Superman came out and all the copycat comments were there. But even in the early days I think it was still better than Dad Where Are We Going.

Because people love seeing them performing You Are and especially Teenager I thought you guys would enjoy this dance practise of the showcase of said songs. Highlights include:

- ot7 torturing stretching each other
- Youngjae laughing non-stop for reasons no one is quite sure of
- Bambam and Yugyeom being weird (so themselves?)
- Jinyoung in all black and a beanie looking sexy serious
- Jaebum in Teenager. Enough said.

Income in entertainment industry heavily imbalanced

A-list actors earn more than 2 billion won (US $1.76 million) a year on average, but about 90 percent of the people in the acting business make only about 6.2 million won (US $5,475), tax agency records showed Tuesday.

Data provided by the National Tax Service (NTS) to Rep. Park Kwang-on for the ongoing parliamentary audits showed that 15,870 people filed income taxes last year as actors. Their annual income before taxes averaged 42 million won.

The top 1 percent earners, or 158 actors, made 2.08 billion (US $1.8 million) won last year, which equals 47.3 percent of the total income by all in the same career, records showed. The top 10 percent, or 1,587 actors, earned 367 million won (US $324,090), an equivalent of 86.8 percent of the total. The remaining 90 percent, or 14,283 people, took home 6.2 million won (US $5,475) for the year, or roughly 520,000 won (US $459) a month.

The disparity was as stark for singers and models. Of 4,667 people who listed their profession as singers, 46 in the top 1 percentile made 4.26 billion won (US $4.06 million) on average in 2016. Ninety percent of them made 8.7 million won (US $7,682) in the same period.

For models, 82 in the highest 1 percent earned 544 million won (US $480,390). For 90 percent, income stopped at just 2.7 million won (US $2,384).

Income difference was also wide between genders. In the case of male actors, the annual average earnings came to 47 million won (US $41,504), higher than 37 million won (US $32,673) for females. Among singers, males on average made 112 million won (US $98,903) compared with 40 million won (US $35,322) by their female counterparts.

Hwayugi Casting News

"Hwayugi" is a modern retelling of the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, which is about a Buddhist monk who is tasked by the gods with retrieving sacred texts from India. It is centered around five main characters, with a monk on a pilgrimage to India accompanied by disciples/companions, each of whom is atoning for sins committed in past lives. The mischievous Monkey King, Sun Wukong, wears a gold ring around his head that can control him; the Pig is the fighter with a big appetite; Sandy is a water demon who has a quieter role; and Yulong is the son of the dragon king who appears as a horse. In the drama, the monk will be a female heroine who searches for the purest light in the midst of the dark world full of evil spirits.

“Hwayugi” is set to premiere in December and air on Saturdays and Sunday.

So the four in the tweet have confirmed, Lee Seung Gi, Lee Se Young, and Bora are still considering. Lee Seung Gi gets discharged from the military on the 31st, so there might be a confirmation after then. I'm extremely confused about this synopsis, but I might end up checking it out.
