OH MY GOD!!!! The noises that just came out of my mouth when I read this! He has always been kind of annoying to me in every show he's been on, but I've been watching I Live Alone since the beginning and in the past year or so it's gotten really good...mainly because of the current cast. I wonder how this news will change things up on the show.

Kang Sora and Yoon Hyun Min confirmed for fantasy romance drama

Gyeryong Fairy Tale is a new drama in the works that puts a spin on the classic folktale of the fairy and the woodcutter, about a 699-year-old fairy who’s lived through a couple of dynasties while waiting for her reincarnated husband. Kang So-ra has confirmed to headline as the fairy, and Yoon Hyun-min will be playing the role of her husband.

The drama is an adaptation of a webtoon by the same name, about a fairy from Gyeryong mountain who has lived from Goryeo to the present day while waiting to reunite with her husband. She’s 699 years old and appears like a grandmother to most, but special people can see her true form, as a beautiful young woman. She runs a strange little coffee shop tucked away in the mountains that serves hand-ground coffee. She talks to animals and plants, and some of the animals around her seem to be people reincarnated in different form.

In the original webtoon, Yoon Hyun-min's character is a biology professor at a university. He suffers from very severe insomnia and is undergoing clinical trials and therapy just to find a cure, and is your general prickly, smartass, handsome young man, though probably a notch crabbier than most because he gets no sleep. He’s forbidden from drinking coffee but can’t live without it, and the hijinks begin when he breaks down and has to have coffee in the middle of nowhere, and lo and behold, there’s a coffee shop right there in the middle of nowhere.

Gyeryong Fairy Tale will be a pre-produced drama and is currently being considered for a tvN slot later this year.

shinee to release best of album, including jonghyun, in april

well, get your buckets ready: it's been confirmed that shinee will be releasing their first japanese best of album, 「 shinee world the best 2018 ~ from now on ~ 」, on april 18th. best of albums are basically greatest hits albums (ala snsd's album in released back in 2014 that featured "divine" and "indestructible"), featuring mostly older single tracks by an artist with the additional of a few new original songs. shinee's fan club, shinee world japan, has written in their press release that the album will include "from now on", one of the two new songs revealed at shinee's recent dome concerts that feature all five members in the recording. more information to come later, i guess??

source(s): enzeru_no_innen (+ translation by me) - shinee world japan

op, as in myself, kind of predicted this was coming but i didn't think they'd announce it so soon. i'm going to guess that all the new songs featured with include jonghyun - probably both the two unveiled at the domes and maybe one of the two new songs showcased at their tour last year that never got an official release. either way ... bittersweet. i have some theories on what this could mean but yeah.
