Seoul Replaces Promotional Poster Due to Misleading Message

The silhouette of a woman, who is wearing Korean traditional dress Hanbok, is depicted, overwrapped with major tourist spots in Seoul, Korea. The woman is holding a ribbon on her clothes gently and the message below the picture reads, “Unforgettable Experience in Seoul.”

It was the draft of the tourism promotional poster for Seoul, which was to be 1,000 digital screens and 150 bus stops in New York, including Time Square.

“The promotional poster, which depicts the charm of Seoul, will captivate the hearts of 60 million New York residents,” said Seoul Metropolitan Government on December 1, revealing the poster design. “We’ve chosen the design as hanbok fitting experience is rising popular among foreign tourists,” they added.

I don't see anything wrong with it, I think it's a nice poster.

Rain talks about his wedding to Kim Tae Hee

Singer Rain, who married actress Kim Tae-hee in January, revealed how much their wedding cost on Tuesday’s episode of “Carefree Travelers.”

“We got married after dating for five years,” he said. “A wedding ceremony is about two people being happy. (Kim) suggested holding it in a church. She said she wanted something that didn’t have empty formalities or vanity, something that wasn’t grandiose. I wore a tuxedo that I already had.”

Rain added that the two also did not hire a professional photographer to take wedding photos. “We have a video, but there was no photographer. Guests (present at the ceremony) had their own cameras and took photos the way they wanted to.” Photos taken by family and friends were then collated into an album, he said.

“I wanted to do everything for my wife. ... But taking out all the formalities, our wedding cost a total of a little more than 2 million won ($1,830).”

“Carefree Travelers” airs Tuesdays on JTBC.

I don't think that's the right amount, honestly. Can you even reserve a church for that amount? And they had a reception too. And security!

Married Man Jailed for Forcing Teen to Send Naked Photos

The Cheongju District Court on Tuesday sentenced a married man, 31, to six months in jail for using threats to pressure a woman he was having an affair with into sending the suspect naked photos of herself.

The suspect had a 10-month romantic relationship with the 19-year-old victim starting in January 2016. During that time, he forced her to send naked pictures to his mobile phone on multiple occasions.

what a weak-ass sentencing, and for the court to disregard the crime because he's married as well as the suspect saying his threats to the victim were jokes are nothing but bulls#!t

Minzy, Eric Nam and Jay Park for 24 Hours of Reality (The Climate Change Project)

24 Hours of Reality is The Climate Project's annual 24-hour broadcast designed to highlight climate change and what can be and is being done to prevent it around the globe, with different countries taking the focus of the show for an hour each. The South Korean broadcast (focused on in hour 7) featured an interview with Minzy and Eric Nam, as well as music video-style performances by Minzy (Superwoman) and Jay Park (Yacht, English version). Unfortunately, since this was a livestream and official uploads of the performances may be unlikely, any uploads are low quality, but I'll replace the videos with higher quality ones if they become available (the official channel has only been uploading talk segments so far).

King Daniel to take temporary break from activities due to illness

It has been revealed that Wanna One’s Kang Daniel was rushed to the hospital due to severe dizziness and a high fever, and will therefore be sitting out from activities temporarily to recover.

On December 6, it was reported that Kang Daniel had been suffering from a high fever and dizziness from the day before. He had gone to the hospital on December 5 but as his condition did not improve, his schedules for today were all cancelled and the idol headed to the hospital for a follow-up medical examination.

A YMC Entertainment representative confirmed the news and stated, “We will be making sure that Kang Daniel gets as much rest as possible so that he has a full recover before any upcoming performances. He has received the necessary medical treatment and is currently resting in the dorms. Luckily, he has no scheduled broadcasted appearances in the immediate future.”

Regarding an event that will be held later today, the representative stated that a final decision had not been made yet. They explained, “Because this will be an event where the members meet face-to-face with fans, Kang Daniel has a strong desire to at least be at the venue and greet his fans. However, his health comes first so we will be monitoring his condition before making a decision.”
